Why James and sharman chose Manilva

What makes this apartment unique

The views from the terrace and the quality of the finish in the apartment is what we fell in love with. Proximity to the pool and a poolside view were important to us as well. Beach/marina/restaurants/bars/shopping all within a 15- 20 minute walk and 5 minute drive what more could one ask for on holiday :)

A very well appointed, well maintained apartment in a good, quiet location, in an elevated development with good views. Top (third) floor, underground garage parking, lift. All very convenient and easy.

Beautiful apartment with excellent amenities and very clean

  • 5 of 5

Would highly recommend this apartment.

James was extremely helpful prior to booking and the apartment was exactly as described. It was spotlessly clean when we arrived, is furnished very tastefully and had everything we needed to make our stay extremely comfortable.

The views from the terrace were truly beautiful and we loved the quiet and relaxed atmosphere of the local area.

Having a car is quite important but the parking facilities are excellent.

We can’t wait to stay here again!

Puerto de la Duquesa really is one of the Costa del Sol's best marinas. Although within easy reach of the airports of Malaga (60 minutes) and Gibraltar (45 minutes), La Duquesa enjoys an advantageous location to the west of Marbella ­ sometimes called "the Other Costa del Sol". The essence in this distinction is that the area retains a vast amount of unspoiled natural scenery and authentic local character - while sharing the fantastic climate and all the excellent services and infrastructure of the rest of the Costa del Sol. This is primarily due to a limited and well-managed development. The result: an ideal balance of relaxed living with easy access to every imaginable amenity. In other words, quality of life.

The beautiful port of La Duquesa offers full Marina Services for boating enthusiasts as well as a myriad of attractions for those with no aspirations to take to the water. For those that a do, a number of companies offer Jet Boat, Wake Board, Boat trips and Scuba Diving. The attractive promenades surrounding the port offer a variety of restaurants, intimate bars and cafes in which to while away the days.
On the east side (Muelle de Levante) a number of cafe bars face the Marina due to the afternoon sun make a very pleasant place to have a snack or a drink and watch the world go by.
The vast choice of eating options include French, Italian, Chinese, Indian, Thai and, of course, Spanish with its fresh, local fish.
In the summer weekend evenings the port hosts a unique Crafts Market, popular with the local residents as well as visitors.
La Duquesa Golf and Country Club boasts an 18 hole course designed by Robert Trent Jones Sr.
Both sides of Duquesa Marina are expansive beaches.
The present-day fishing village developed like most towns on the Costa and has become a popular place for expats working locally and in Gibraltar. Sabinillas prom is lined with bars/restaurants
