About the property

2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Can Sleep 6 With Sofa Bed In Lounge

The perfect place to relax and enjoy the sun. My apartment is located in Puerto de la Duquesa, the main door to my block opening directly into the Marina. The high quality Marina Real block has marble floors throughout with underground safe parking for your car. My apartment has the best of 2 worlds as the main door to my block opens directly into the Marina with all the restaurants and bars but my apartment looks out over the beach and sea which is less than 100 metres away.

About Mark Garner

In the UK I am a property developer and professional landlord. I love the sun and so stay in my apartment up to 6 times a year, it is a great place to be with your family whether you are just relaxing, swimming and sun bathing, sightseeing, exploring or simply playing golf at the many championship golf courses within a short drive.

Mark Garner purchased this apartment in 2003

Why Mark Garner chose Manilva area

Marina Real was the last block to be developed around the Marina at La Duquesa and so has been built to the highest standards. My apartment block main door opens directly into the Marina but my duplex apartment is located on the 5th floor and my terrace has an amazing view looking onto the beach, Palm trees and the sea. It is an wonderful place just to sit and look out to sea relaxing. Being a property developer myself I am very particular in my requirements and my apartment ticks all the boxes. All the floors are marble with an excellent lift which goes direct from the underground garages to the top floor. There are of course stairs if you wish to take that route. The beach

What makes this apartment unique

The view from my terrace across the beach and out to sea is why I love going back many times a year with my family and friends. The choice of restaurants caters for all tastes or there are some quality bars if you just which to have a drink and watch the sunset.

Great apartment in a beautiful place!

  • 5 of 5

We spent six weeks in this lovely apartment in the off-season in February and March. The apartment is exactly as described in the listing with an amazing view of the pools, sea, and palm trees from the balcony. It is spread over two floors with two bedrooms and two full bathrooms upstairs and the kitchen, dining area, living room and 2-piece bathroom downstairs. For anyone with mobility issues, this would not be ideal, but it worked very well for us! The apartment was clean and well-equipped and any problems (nothing major but we had a light bulb burn out and the kettle stopped working) were handled immediately by Duquesa Estates. The only misleading thing is that the description says it includes a tumble dryer. It is actually a drying rack, but I think that is quite common in Europe and did not pose a problem.

As others have mentioned, the parking space is very small! We rented a Fiat Panda, but anything larger probably would not fit in the space, unless you fold in the mirrors. Having said that, a vehicle is not necessary in this area! There are numerous restaurants and pubs, as well as four grocery stores all within an easy 20-minute walk.

Others have also mentioned problems with the Internet. I could access the Internet on my phone, but my husband's phone and our two tablets would not pick it up at all. However, all the restaurants and pubs in the area have WiFi available, so it really isn't a problem.

The area restaurants are very plentiful! Our favourite was La Taberna 2 in the small village of El Castillo, a 5-minute walk from the apartment. Also, don't miss out on a drink and tapas in The Albatros!

We definitely loved our stay at Marina Real! Thanks, Mark...we will be back!

Very well located & appointed apartment.

  • 4 of 5

The apartment has everything one could possibly require for a holiday stay or a more lengthy let. The balcony is well situated as when i was there over Christmas it was very windy but i could sit comfortably with little effect from the wind.

Lovely apartment in an amazing location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is in a fantastic location, overlooking 3 pools and the beach on one side and the main door of the complex opens directly onto the port which has a great selection of pubs / restuarants.

Great location, peaceful evenings with the sound of waves

  • 4 of 5

Really enjoyed our stay. The flat was in a perfect location, with plenty of places to eat and great cafes to catch the morning sun. The sea views were great as well.

The flat was clean and spacious, if we had cooked any meals, I am sure we would have found the kitchen suitable to our needs. Everything was just as it was described online.

The only complaint we had, is regarding the WiFi. It cut in and out and did not seem to want to work on Android at all. Whilst, I know we did not come to Spain to use the internet, it was our only way of communication with our families and the people we were to there to visit. If this were improved, I don't see why this property would not receive 5 stars.

Having had my properties in Prague listed on AirBnB, I am familiar with how these properties work and just a few tweaks and this place will be full year round.

Thanks Mark for hosting us and we may be back again!

Best of luck,
