|Minimum Stay||7 - 14 nights|
Many of our guests return on a regular basis to this superior ground floor one or two bedroom, two bathroom apartment with its very large south facing terrace. We have completed a high spec upgrade to give that special touch of luxury to its decor. The main bedroom has a super king bed which can convert into two twin beds. The second bedroom has twin beds while the second bathroom has a jacuzzi shower. We constantly strive to equip the apartment to a very high standard to include oven/hob, dishwasher, microwave, washing machine, fridge/freezer, nespresso machine, blender, hairdryer and DVD. There is a 40inch TV with Sky package. The apartment enjoys an excellent location (with many of our repeat guests stating it is the best apartment on the complex as can be verified from the many testimonials) beside the gated and heated swimming pool. It is very secure for children. The large terrace catches the sun all day and into the evening while there is also a lovely shaded area for those who do not like too much sun and for dining al fresco in comfort. The terrace is well equipped with sunbeds and chairs so there is no reason to leave the sun drenched terrace in search of sunbeds around the pool. There is a Weber bbq on the terrace. There is a separate children's pool. The apartment is wheelchair accessible.
General: Duquesa del Mar is a luxury development of 89 apartments. The complex would be considered to be very prestigious within Golf del Sur and it is maintained to a very high standard. It is very conveniently located, close to all amenities, yet in a quiet location with gated access. It is a relatively quiet area at night, and if you are seeking a more lively nightlife, this is best found in areas such as Los Cristianos or Playa de las Americas, a 10 minutes taxi ride away.
Golf del Sur is not just about golf. In the immediate area, there are some wonderful seafront walks with many excellent restaurants serving a variety of food to include all tastes and budgets.
Not far away, is the Marina San Miguel where you can stroll and examine the international yachts and cruisers. You also have the opportunity of taking a ride in a genuine submarine.
Further Facilities: There are numerous facilities for all water sports and diving and snorkelling is particularly well catered for.
The Tenerife Zoo, Loro Parque is an excellent day out, with many exotic bird species in a superb environment. This zoo is highly regarded internationally for its breeding programme and environmental approach. Siam Park is the €52m Water Park with something for everyone, unbelievable rides and a manmade beach complete with waves.
There is a wonderful outdoor bowls facility in the adjoining Winter Gardens complex. For people who have not tried this before, they hold a beginner's day on Wednesday at 11.00am followed by a light lunch. It is great fun and reasonably priced and would need to be booked in advance as it is very popular.
There are lots of markets in different locations on the island. Details of these can be found in the folder in the apartment with other useful information.
We really enjoyed our holiday in your beautiful apartment. Thank you so much. We would love to do it again in the future. All best wishes.
We have just returned from a fantastic 9 days at Ann and Des's superb apartment. This larger than average apartment occupies what I would say , the best position on the complex, having a large sunkissed terrace practically all day but also plenty of shade if it became to hot . There are sun loungers for soaking up the rays and also tables and chairs for al fresco dining. You are also right next to an ample sized pool, which at times we had to ourselves where you can cool down before relaxing on one of many poolside loungers. Inside the apartment there are plenty of utensils,plates etc if you want to be self sufficient ,which we weren't as we were on holiday and we don't do cooking on holiday lol. The bedrooms were of very good size with ample storage space, and a very large lounge and tv , which we didn't really use because of the fantastic weather. Ann was very quick at replying to our e-mails and gave us plenty of information about surrounding area before we left .There are plenty of places to eat locally or if you don't mind walking there is a lovely coastal walk to places such as San blas where there is entertainment nightly. There is no need to hire a car as buses and taxis are very cheap unless you want to tour the island then a car might be more useful . Overall we had a fantastic stay at Ann and Des's apartment and would not hesitate trying to book here again as it is very popular. Thanks again Dave Sal Vic and Josh.
We have been to Tenerife for many years now and always stayed in apartments and I can honestly say this is the best one yet.As well as the apartment the complex and the pool were wonderful.
Everything was perfect,clean and well maintained.
Fully equipped kitchen,no need to eat out if you didn't want to.It really was home from home.
The patio area was lovely for both sun bathing and shade if it got to hot.
We met the owners,Ann and Des,while we were there,they were very friendly,lovely people.
I would definitely recommend this apartment to all ages.
Me and my husband enjoy walking and there is a lovely coastal walk as well as nice peaceful walks through the golf courses.
We have been home less than a week and have already booked for next year as we were that impressed with it.
Just back from a great relaxing holiday spent in a lovely clean modern apartment. If you are fed up with the usual busy all inclusive package holidays this is for you. Just so peaceful and very much home from home. Plenty of near bye restaurants if you want to eat out or great cooking facilities for dining in.
We will definitely be booking for next year. Ann and Des ( the owners) couldn't be more helpful and Julie the lady who cleans was also very approachable and helpful. I have already recommended this property to several of our friends.
We had a great holiday the property was great home from home very clean nothing to complain about going again in September I would recommend this property to a friend or relative Mrs c Whitworth
I wish we could say we had a fantastic time, the apartment was just as described and any issues were dealt with promptly and professionally. However that wasn’t the case.
Firstly there are positive points, Great poolside location, Air conditioning (optional), good sized master bedroom and en suite bathroom
However these were far outweighed by the following issues:
The apartment was advertised as having garage parking, a few days before flying we were told that this wasn’t the case as the owners leave their car in the garage now! The owners did eventually find us another space in the garage. However the apartment is still being advertised as having parking, it does not, there is only on street parking and this can be difficult
The apartment is a 2 bedroom and charged as such, however, there are only 2 sunbeds, so if you intend to travel as a party of 4, you will have to sunbathe by the pool and not on the private patio, which is one of the main attractions of this apartment.
There is no local professional property management, anything that went wrong we resolved ourselves, e.g.
TV instructions did not include step 1 to actually switch the set on, we even sent a text to the owners to see if we had done anything wrong, only to be sent the same instructions that are in the apartment and to be told that we should watch TV in the Wild Geese local pub!!! Not a helpful suggestion. We resolved the issue by finding the On-Off switch on top of the TV, the local lady who cleans the apartment had no idea, and actually wasn’t even in the country for the first 4 days of our stay
The outside lights did not work, the cleaners were going to send for an electrician until, by elimination, we discovered that 2 switches needed to be turned on for the outside lights to work
The battery for the key fob for the car park failed, we had to go and purchase a replacement ourselves
The ceiling fan in the master bedroom was too noisy to operate, no action was taken when we reported this; if you don’t book the air conditioning then this could be annoying.
We booked for the 2 of us in week 1and another couple from our family joined us in week 2. We were very surprised therefore to find that the second bedroom was locked in week 1 as if we were the type of people to be sneaking other tenants in without paying. As a company director I found this quite odd and actually a little insulting.
Overall we had a great holiday and will be re-booking at Duquesa Del Mar but I’m afraid not here.
We arrived in the evening with all the information needed about this private secure complex and lovely apartment. It was superbly placed for me and my husband with a large sunny all-day terrace with shade available too and right next to the fabulous pool. We enjoyed glorious evenings sitting out on the terrace, drink in hand, enjoying the outdoor living. The beautiful apartment has all home comforts inside with plenty of space to stretch out and catch up on favourite TV programmes. There are loads of excellent bars and restaurants close by and some a further walk away. Taxi's and buses are cheap if you don't want to hire a car. Ann has been so approachable and such a valuable source of information and she really wants everyone to enjoy her and Des's fab holiday home.
Golf del Sur is a self contained town, with a golf course running through it. It is just a few minutes drive from the airport. Although well served by excellent restaurants, bars and shops, it is considered a quiet area. Yet it is only 10-15 minutes distance from the livelier nightspots of Los Cristianos and Playa de las Americas. Taxis are plentiful and reasonably cheap. There is also an inexpensive public bus service, available at the door of the development. The apartment is located on the ground floor in the interior of the development. Thus it is sheltered and traffic noise. It is only steps away from the heated pool. The apartment is a 100 metres away from a new seafront walkway, which gives spectacular sunrise views over Red Rock.
The capital, Santa Cruz, is an hour away and is well served by public transport. It contains several museums, a concert auditorium, lovely restaurants and serious shopping opportunities.
Golf: Golf in Tenerife has come on in leaps and bounds over the years. It is now being marketed as the only area in Europe where you can play golf on Christmas day, with the sun guaranteed. Golf del Sur has two championship courses, and there are four more courses within easy driving distance. Buggies, clubs and caddies are all available for hire. There are excellent clubhouse facilities.
There are eight championship standard courses on the island, and the Tenerife was the venue for the Spanish Open in 2004.
Most of the courses welcome green fee players and English is spoken everywhere. if you enquire in advance, most of the courses offer deals such as five green fees for the price of four, or reduced green fees for playing at specific times. However the availability of such deals will depend on the season and it is best to call personally and see whats on offer.
