Lovely Apartment

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at the apartment recently for 11 days. Lovely spacious apartment with large terrace.

Fully equipped with everything you could want. Very comfortable bed. Pool and garden areas well maintained with great views. The walk down to town is okay but its a toil walking back up.

I would recommend this apartment to others.

Exellent apartment

  • 5 of 5

Found this apartment on Home and away site. It was ideally situated for us as our son lives two blocks down. The apartment was everything we hoped it would be, very clean upon arrival and nice little touches like a bottle of water in the fridge and tea bags and little cream cartons on the side. As an English man a cup of tea was needed on arrival so this was a bonus as we arrived on a Sunday and the local shops were closed.

We had requested from the owner extra linen so our grandchildren could stop with us and this was waiting for us upon arrival . All through the booking and after the owner Eva couldn't have been more helpful. We will deffinetly use the apartment again in the future should it be available.

The only downside to the apartment is that it is situated at the top of a hill which in August is a mare to walk up, I refuse to drive while I'm on Holiday because driving is a big part of my job. If you drive while your over there this is not a problem.

Stylish apartment overlooking sea and Duquesa Golf

  • 5 of 5

I can only confirm the several very positive reviews before this. This property does exactly what it says on the tin, and the owner's description is accurate in all respects, although I'd suggest the terrace enjoys views to the south-east and round to the south-west, meaning nearly all-day sun, although the size and depth of the terrace means there is not much DIRECT sun coming into the living room. In the summer months, this feature (i.e. the rooms remaining cool despite the sunshine) would probably be a much bigger advantage than during the autumn and winter seasons. The apartment is neat, sensibly laid out, very nicely furnished, and well-appointed all round.

Everything was as listed, and in good condition. WiFi is available and mobile WiFi using a prepaid SIM card, and good home entertainment facilities. The apartment itself was spotlessly clean on our arrival and the Urbanizacion Coto Real and the local agency Duquesa Estates both seemed to be well-run operations. When minor problems arose during our stay, they were handled promptly and with a smile - always a good sign.

The apartment looks out over several holes of the Duquesa Golf Course (not in great condition while we were staying - we played instead at Doña Julia in Casares Costa), and down to the sea and the attractive marina at Puerto de la Duquesa.

Yes, walking to the bars and restaurants in Duquesa or Sabinillas is perfectly do-able, although the return is uphill, but really one does need a car to get around here. Parking is possible in the garage or on the street by the front entrance. There are numerous swimming pools to choose from, though in November/December there were not many swimmers, despite some very warm days!

The owner communicated very well, and provided a wealth of information, making our stay very easy.

In terms of local sights, try to get up to the white hill town of Casares, which is remarkably well preserved. The old centre of Estepona also has some charming streets that have not lost their Spanish flavour. Macues on the waterfront in Puerto de la Duquesa is the standout local restaurant: "old school" service and excellent food in pleasant surroundings.

I would definitely recommend Casa Dolce Vita to anyone, with the possible exception of younger travellers seeking a busy clubbing nightlife: Coto Real is rather quiet (nicely so), as is the entire Western end of Andalucia in general. Torremolinos this is NOT. :-)

Geschmackvoll und perfekt!

  • 5 of 5

Ja, wir haben unseren Urlaub in dieser Wohnung von der ersten bis zur letzten Minute genossen. Eine Wohnung, die liebevoll und geschmackvoll eingerichtet ist, und jede Menge Komfort bietet. Man fühlt sich sofort wohl.

Vom Wohnzimmer und vom (Master-)Schlafzimmer kommt man auf die sehr große und zu Teilen überdachte Terrasse, auf der ich jeden Morgen den Sonnenaufgang überm Meer mit einem Glas Latte Macchiato genießen konnte. So fängt ein wunderbarer Urlaubstag an!

Zum Garten und zu den Pools ist es von der Terrasse nur ein paar Stufen hinab.

Die Küche ist vollständig eingerichtet und ausgestattet und noch ein bisschen mehr: Latte Macchiato Gläser, sehr schöne große Rotweingläser, neben weiteren Pfannen drei Portionspfannen, zB für Omelette, und vieles mehr.

Die Wohnung ist in einem sehr sauberen und gepflegten Zustand.

Wir kommen sehr gerne wieder!

Wunderschönes "Zuhause" bei Sonne, Pool, Meer, Strand und gutem Essen!!

  • 5 of 5

Wir sind schon zum fünften Mal hier und immer wieder restlos begeistert!

Wir genießen die ruhige Lage der Wohnung und den Zugang zu den Pools und der gepflegten Gartenanlage. Auf der großen Terrasse lässt es sich gemütlich frühstücken und natürlich auch abends zusammensitzen. Die Wohnung ist super ausgestattet und lässt wirklich keine Wünsche offen. Es ist für alles gesorgt. Wir kommen gerne wieder!
