Don't drive, won't drive ??

No problem as we are close to the local bus stops and you can get from and to Malaga airport for under £15 each way. It does take three buses (airport Marbella Estapona Duquesa) and the bus connections are very convenient. The journey takes around three hours but this is no problem if you consider it as a tour of the Costa Del Sol. You're on holiday so why rush?

Need a cot for your young one? Not a problem as we can provide one for just 10 euro per week.

About Stan & Helen Kiddle

Hi, we're Stan & Helen Kiddle. We met in 1979 and married in 1984 and have two grown-up children. We live in St Alban's Hertfordshire, just North of London were we grew up.

We purchased No.28 Mikonos Player 'off-plan' in 2003 and took ownership in 2004. First and foremost it's our holiday home and therefore we like to think of our guests almost as part of our extended family. We hope that when you stay at no.28 you will treat it as you would your own home, and, most important, feel at home and relax.

We have a number of guests who return year on year and, as you will expect, we give them the best possible pricing. But we do have a mortgage, cleaning and utility bills to pay for so if the price we quote sounds a little high, let us know and, if we can't reduce it for you, you will understand why.

We just love talking to new clients about Duquesa, it's not quite as good as actually being there but it's the next best thing. So please please, do pick up the phone for a chat. Best wishes

Why Stan & Helen Kiddle chose Manilva

We choose Duquesa as it's close to all the best that the Costa Del Sol can offer with beach, pool, marina, shopping, golf and so much more close by and the big towns and small villages just a few minutes drive away. We choose Duquesa because it's the type of place that as a family, we like to holiday. It can be as relaxed or as busy as you choose. And we are sure you will love it too.

What makes this apartment unique

We are just two minutes walk from our door to the beautiful Duquesa marina.

Charming villa in a gorgeous port town

  • 4 of 5

I recently had a short stay with my family (4 of us in total) at this apartment. First thing to say is that Stan’s communication both prior to, and during, the stay was excellent, and it was clear he wanted to ensure we had a good holiday.

The apartment is lovely and has all the necessities we needed for a family holiday. Being a stone’s throw from La Duquesca port and beach made for some lovely days (and evenings) out - and a great walk into the old town (Castille).

Only draw back is its proximity to a main highway, which can be heard from the terrace. However, this did not bother us at all whilst in the apartment, and we spent our evenings walking around the local area.

Great value for money and would recommend.

Ideally situated apartment

  • 4 of 5

Set in an ideal location for harbour and beach. Quiet block of apartments which are well maintained. Some noise from the road.

A nice stay near the marina

  • 4 of 5

We had a very nice stay in Stan & Helen's apartment so near from the marina and its friendly pubs ... "the place to be". No use to use the car to go and have a drink or to a restaurant and even run errands. The best supermarket is so near...

No one mentioned the motorway

  • 2 of 5

Duquesa is a great location, and the apartment is centrally located, roomy but a little tired and in need of a refresh. But the real issue is that it sits right next to the A7 trunk road which is right next to the balcony and all windows in the apartment.

At night the traffic headlights light up the bedrooms even with the curtains closed and you wouldn't want to open the windows or balcony doors due to the roar of the traffic and the fumes.

But the location is good, lots to do when out, plenty of restaurants, the beach is fantastic and the buses (on the A7) are just a stones throw away, cheap and reliable.

So great place to visit, but if your budget will run to the extra euro per night for an apartment with a sea view you won't back on to 24/7 traffic noise, light and air pollution.

Owner's Response: Sorry you were not 100% happy. Our location map clearly shows Mikonos Player is adjacent to the dual carriageway, as are many apartment complexes and hotels along the Costa del Sol. We've owned no.28 for nearly 14 years and can honestly say that we've never experienced any issues with fumes. The A7 is not particularly busy late at night/early hours and the shutters and curtains, in our opinion, eliminate any headlight issues. Helen and I are going out ourselves for a week in November to undertake the 'refresh' you mention. This is the earliest date we could commit to as we've been booked solid for this year and obviously such utilisation will take it's toll. We believe we offer the best value in the area. If there are apartments of equal standard and features available in Duquesa with a sea view, no traffic (or holiday maker) noise etc. for just an extra euro a night then we can't find them.

Lovely Apartment, lovely location

  • 4 of 5

really enjoyed our stay, this apartment is in a prime location for beaches, bars and walks into neighbouring resorts. A car is useful if you want to venture further. Apartment has everything you need, is comfortable and homely. Stan was always available via email if we had any questions which is great. would recommend and would def return.

Car: not necessary

La Duquesa has undergone considerable development over the last few years. If you are driving towards Gibraltar, La Duquesa is on your way between Estepona and Sotogrande. It is regarded as the final major holiday resort location in the Malaga region before you enter Cadiz. Within the area you will find port of Duquesa, with its international restaurants and boutiques.

The port provides a full marina service for enthusiastic sailors, not to mention plenty of alternatives for those who prefer to admire the boats from the safety of one of the wide variety of restaurants, intimate bars and small cafes dotted around the port.

Roads leading away from the port take you to the hills of Duquesa and its golf course, the Duquesa Golf and Country Club. Numerous other golf clubs are a short drive away. Likewise, the main coastal highway takes you quickly to Marbella, Estapona and Puerto Banus. Head west past Gibraltar and you will find Tarifa, water sports capital of Spain.
