About Elizabeth

We have a young family and disliked the rules and constraints of hotels and communal pools, so we decided to purchase this villa and made it child friendly, yet stylish too. Duquesa is a safe place with everything you could wish for in a small area. We would happily let teenagers have a bit more independence here than in the larger towns.

Elizabeth purchased this villa in 2009

Why Elizabeth chose Manilva

Casa Flora is spacious, modern and clean. All the beds are high quality and new. We have tried to think of everything for the kitchen. There are 3 fridges to ensure you have plenty of cool storage. The villa is set on a good sized plot with room for children to play in the garden or under shade. The pool is large for a private villa and is heated if required.

What makes this villa unique

Walking distance to marina.

Detached villa with gardens

Large pool

Heated pool

Sea and golf view from the top terrace

Spacious villa

4th bedroom can also be used as a playroom as there is a TV and Wii

Guestbook comments from the owner

Excellent Villa

  • 4 of 5

Had a lovely stay with my family, spacious villa, gated around the pool was fantastic for our eldest grandaughter, nice large garden and an amazing chimney bbq, nice size bedrooms with 3 bathrooms, ample street parking plus a car port area that can be locked, overall we had a fantastic stay apart from the barking dogs in the early hours every morning, I have communicated this to Elizabeth and she will look into it, but don't take anything away from our stay, would recommend this property

Lovely family holiday

  • 5 of 5

After a few teething problems (which were rectified to our satisfaction after contacting Elizabeth the owner) we went on to enjoy a lovely time in this villa. Everything worked as it should, kitchen was well equipped and even had indoor china and sturdy plastic crockery for outdoor use. Plenty of fridge/freezer space to stock up for an entire fortnight. Bedrooms had plenty of storage space and plenty of extra bedding if you needed it. Beds were comfortable and we all slept well.....My mother in Law loved her shower room in the master bedroom. TV and Wi-Fi worked well. Plenty of beach towels provided and the outdoor toilet a very good idea. Pool was clean and a very good size (The temperature of the pool was a little on the cold side for the older members of our group) and lots of pool toys and float aids were provided. The shutters on all the windows allowed us to keep rooms cool so A/C was not needed after the first couple of days.

The walk down to the town was pretty easy and a nice walk, also fine to walk back up if you are young and fit but a struggle for the older members of our group.... they hired a car so were fine... taxis also reasonably priced. A couple of us hired bikes for a week ( Roadrunner at the Marina hire bikes and other equipment) and went on some lovely bike rides in the area.

All in all we had a wonderful holiday and this villa was far superior to the one we rented the previous year. I think the only real downside was that the Golf course was pretty run down (comment from my father in law)

Would certainly recommend for a family holiday.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind review. I’m always pleased to hear people have enjoyed their stay at the villa. We are replacing the pool heater this winter, to something much more powerful. I appreciate the tip of Roadrunner as I wasn’t aware of them, they will come in very useful. Thanks again x

Areas of concern....

  • 3 of 5

The pool and the garden are beautiful and when you spend time outside thats key. But the inside needs lots of TLC. The villa has got to an age when things need replacing. Bathrooms need updating...cabinet doors worn...shower screen dirty and very loud squeeks. Bathroom blinds discoloured with time. Loose floor tiles. One bedroom bed damaged. Cushions dirty. Electric blind not working. Advertised heated pool....whilst appreciate sunny...freezing cold until about tea time. Asked for Duquesa Estates to help but werent interested and we had to then contact the owner who did then explain that the heated pool was extra but she told us how to turn it in. Unfortunately this was too late to give it chance to warm up by the time we set off back home. No shelves in oven. Unsightly array of wires next to a lovely fireplace. Dirty in a few areas. Electric gates obviously broken as now chained and padlocked. The pictures make it look like it was not overlooked...which it was. And there are obviously peoples houses who had dogs. On many a night the barking kept us awake.Whilst this feedback will not take away the fact we had a brilliant holiday because when you work hard for your holidays you make the best of what you have...and as we got married and this was our honeymoon....we had....in our opinion...overpaid for what we received.

Very nice villa

  • 5 of 5

Recently stayed here. There were four adults and three children under 5. The facilities were exceptional. Everything we needed was available. Some of the property was a little 'worn' but there was sufficient items to make our stay very comfortable. The fencing around the pool meant that we didn't have to worry about the little ones. They were safe in the garden and couldn't open the gate.

Owner's Response: Thank you for a lovely review, I am so pleased you enjoyed your stay. The villa does feel very safe to let children play freely and it is great that you can get away from it all in your own place if you wish. Duquesa marina is only a 20 min walk and Estepona and Sotogrande are less than 10 mins drive, so enough variety on your doorstep to keep everyone happy!

This villa has to be in our top 3 that we have stayed in. The pool is the best I have ever seen, large and so clean. The villa has everything you could need and the decor is too a very high standard. I would just like to say a great big thank you to the owner Elizabeth who went out of her way to sort out the pool heating for us as we had a 4 month old and the pool was just a bit too cold for him. Her response was fantastic.

We have stayed in lots of villas throughout the world and a fair few in Spain and I have too say if we have ever had an issue it was never dealt with so quickly as Elizabeth dealt with this.

The villa is located in a great position for travel not far away from the main coast road, shops and restaurants. If you dont want to drive it is an easy walk to the port which has all you need including a large array of restaurants. We will definitely be back to this villa next year.
