About Sally and John Lawn

Myself and my husband bought our home off plan before the development had even begun. we had spent weeks in Spain and had found nothing special. We fell in love with the area and the beautiful beach immediately and have one of the most enviable locations on this stretch of coast. As a family, we spend about 6 weeks of the year here and use that time to totally relax.

Sally and John Lawn purchased this apartment in 2002

Why Sally and John Lawn chose La Duquesa

Most holiday homes these days are usually just...functional.

Our property will give you that home from home feeling that one doesn't usually find in rented holiday homes.

What makes this apartment unique

The sound of the waves lulling you to sleep at night is better than any sleeping pill you will find!!

Perfect location on the beach

  • 5 of 5

We booked one week in July 2014 and wished we'd stayed longer. A perfect location on the beach, with 2 pools situated in the gardens if you prefer. The apartment is charming and very well equipped with a stunning and very spacious sun terrace. There is room to sunbath, eat and just enjoy the lovely views. A 2 minute walk to a couple of eateries for lunch or a lovely evening stroll slightly further to a greater selection of bars and restaurants. We will return!

Perfect apartment for a wonderful getaway.

  • 5 of 5

Sally's beautiful apartment was the perfect getaway to celebrate the New Year period. The apartment was clean and cosy with wonderful views overlooking the beach. The log burner was an added touch to what was a romantic break away. Would definitely go again, and would highly recommend it.

Perfect place for everyone

  • 5 of 5

Having been here before we were delighted to come back. The site now has it's own little cafe and shop although you are on top of the town centre which is a 5 min car journey away, or a 20 min walk along the beach. Sally has a little gem in this quieter than most beach front apartment. Great views from the expansive wrap around balcony. Closeness to beach means you can have a cup of coffee and walk through the garden gate straight on to the sand for early morning or late evening relaxation. Everything you need is already provided in the apartment and the agent who also lives on same site, is a lovely English lady with a great welcome. Definitely going back as soon as can fix another date. Wherever you want to go along the Costa Del Sol, this apartment is the ideal home location.

beautiful outlook and high quality appartment

  • 5 of 5

The 5 of us have just had 2 weeks here. The whole apartment is great and well furnished and the deck is amazing with views over a stunning beach. Beach-side restaurants are within a couple of minutes and we chose not to have a car for the majority and walked the 15 min walk to Lidl for our shopping (everything you need). Pool area is really clean with the gardens well kept. Fantastic apartment in a great small development in a wonderful location!

This place is amazing

  • 5 of 5

I really can't say enough nice things about this. even looking at the picture of the terrace brings back great memories. thanks to the Lawn's for a great time. they are very reasonable and happy people. it's the little details like the stereo on the patio with the ipad plug so you can listen to you own music while you're eating outside. We chose AIr's "moon safari" for most of our meals. you can walk to the nearest Aldi/lidl where there is a fish market and buy fresh lobsters and fish and then cook them on the grill. everything is provided.

Owner's Response: It is really important to us that our guests enjoy their stay! We are very lucky to have such a wonderful position with amazing views and want people to enjoy their stay in our 'second home' When we decide to let it, we made the decision to leave ''The small touches" in place and appreciate our guests appreciation!

Two families of three

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is wonderful - very well laid out and furnished and well equiped with everything you might need. The balcony is a particular feature - it is huge and delightful to sit out on and eat or sunbathe - there is a big awning to provide shade during the day. The pool is great, but just a word of caution to parents with younger children - the minimum depth is 1.20m so our children (ages 4&5) could not stand up at all and got tired quickly. The beach is a stone's throw away (there are great views of it from balcony and two of the three bedrooms) and there is a shower on the boardwalk on the way. Restaurants in the nearby centre are limited - to get to good ones needs a drive in the car. Local supermarket is excellent, but again a car dive (not a problem for us). One of the 3 bedrooms is on a lower floor from the rest of the appartment - we had some trouble getting the children to stay down there and ended up mixing our sleeping arrangements up a bit! Overall a lovely place which we would recommend.

El Diamante is a small, exclusive, gated complex forming part of Marina de Casares. There are several beach bars/restaurants within a 2 mins stroll down the beach (open in Season). A 10 min walk and you will come to the little town of Sabinillas where there are now many bars, coffee shops and restaurants as well as local shops and supermarkets. There are 3 or 4 larger supermarkets a short drive away, most stocking many English brands. A 5 mins car ride will take you to the charming little port, ' Puerto Duquesa' full of bars, restaurants, shops & cafes. The quaint white washed villages of Casares & Benhavis are well worth a visit. 10 mins east along the coast you will find Estapona port & town, once a small fishing village. As you come into Estapona you will see the bull ring on the left & the lively port on your right. The town also has a good selection of restaurants, bars & shops in it's winding back streets & plazas & has retained it's Spanish charm. It has a wonderful promenade with fountains & large children's play areas.
