Why Ian Facer chose Manilva
The property has a great location and is only an hours drive from the main airports. Duquesa is far enough down the coast to still retain the charm of a local marina and yet far enough to avoid the crowds from the major tourist resorts. We are only 40 minutes drive from Gibraltar and the rock airport.

Property was exactly as described - fantastic!
The villa is exactly as described on the website - spacious, well equipped and with stunning views across the hillside and down to the coast. Location is peaceful and easy to access with a car. Restaurants, supermarkets etc are only 5 minutes drive away down the hill and pool is close by and not too busy. There was a lifeguard on duty every time we visited and the kids also appreciated the small play area.
We had no problems at all accessing the wifi and staff at the key pick up were friendly and helpful. Only small quibble is that downstairs bedrooms are a little warm without AC but we managed with a fan.
Would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a quite spot with lots of facilities if they have access to a car.
Thank you for your review and we are glad you enjoyed your stay. We will take your comments on board. You would be more than welcome to stay with us agin.
Modern villa with great views
Easy access by car from the main coast road. The villa has a particularly great kitchen and the main room and bedrooms are also of a high standard. The views from the back of the villa are brilliant with both mountain and sea highly visible, at the time of visit there were eagles and vultures flying past which is wonderful for me to watch as a birdwatcher.
Hill top Villa Princesa Kristina
Fabulous Villa with all that you needed for a home from home stay. The views are, as described, Stunning by day and by night. Quiet, clean friendly area and is good if you want to get away from crowded holiday resorts and beaches. I have been to this area many times and will be coming back again next year. Care hire is essential if you want to get out and about and also because it is up a very steep hill, although it is worth it. So many great points and if you don't mind not having Wi-Fi, I would highly recommend this Villa
Great to hear you enjoyed your holiday. As you say the hill top position gives fantastic views down the coast and Duquesa is a smart resort busy enough to have atmosphere but away from the crowds of the larger resorts. The property does benefit from Wi-Fi throughout which also allows streaming of a full range of English TV and movie channels.
Fabulous villa and facilities in a lovely area
The villa has spectacular views and a great setting on the edge of a nice urbanization. There were great facilities to make for a comfortable home from home experience - dishwasher, washing machine, and entertainment systems.
The furniture and fittings were tasteful, modern and all worked well such as the air conditioning. The bed in the master bedroom was large and very comfortable.
The outdoor space was large and private - great for sunbathing and eating plus there was plenty of outdoor furniture. It was nice having a stock of basics in the kitchen such as herbs, oils, cling film, and cleaning products etc so you didn't have to start from scratch.
The communal pools and areas were only 5 minutes walk from the villa, very well kept and not at all busy - it was great having a children's and adult pool.
La Duquesa was lovely - enough restaurants and bars, particularly at the Port without being too busy - at least in September. You do really need a car to stay here. We had some great days out - Malaga, Estepona, Ronda and Gibraltar were all worth a visit and took about an hour's drive or less.
The owner was very accommodating and a pleasure to deal with, which all contributed to a very positive first experience of booking on Owner's Direct! I would definitely recommend a stay at this villa and will book it again in the future if we want to stay in this area.
The villa is comfortable, spacious accomodation with stunning views, the photos really do not do it justice. The port itself didn't have much in the way to occupy teenagers as they wanted to do watersports but the villa is a perfect base for sightseeing. We had a lovely week.
Thank you so much for a wonderful stay. We enjoyed every single moment. The villa is well-equipped, comfortable and overall it is very well kept so we felt like home. The terrace is great with stunning mountain and sea views we will never forget. A great choice of music and lots of things that made our stay wonderful! The pools are clean and we enjoyed spending time there. A great value for money! We definitely would like to come back!!!
