About Chris & Susan Beesley

We are accountants by profession and love to travel. It was always our dream to own a property in the sunshine and the Costa del Sol was the perfect location. We can visit whenever we want and also able to share it with guests who respect it is our home and want a "home from home" experience in beautiful surroundings

Why Chris & Susan Beesley chose Manilva area

We chose Coto Real for sunshine and this particular property because we believe that like ourselves you will enjoy the tranquility and luxury of the resort complex and the apartment. We have furnished it as we would our home and know you will appreciate that.

What makes this apartment unique

Large luxury apartment on a secure gated resort. Huge terrace with part sun part shade - excellent for eating outdoors, direct access to gardens & swimming pool which includes a separate children's pool.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We will certainly stay in your apartment again. Steve and all the security staff were very friendly and helpful.

Summer Oasis

  • 4 of 5

Perfect spot for a quiet time, close to beach, great pools. Did have a fire in an adjoining building, but management were on the ball to ensure we were taken care of

Owner's Response: Thanks you and as you say having a fire was certainly unexpected but our guest services agent Karen was on the ball and looking at the best way to take care of you and your family so that your vacation was not interrupted One of those things we definitely could not have predicted - a fire on the resort which obviously for safety of everyone meant the power had to be shut off for a period of time

Exactly as advertised

  • 5 of 5

Apart from the weather and a few days of rain (well it was January) we had a very pleasant break away from the UK and the apartment was exactly as advertised. The apartment was indeed luxuriously furnished and it has a huge terrace which is part sun and part shade so perfect for any time of the day. The plus was seeing some amazing sunrises over the ocean.

There is certainly plenty to do from Golf to just chilling around the Marina and for those wanting culture there are plenty of nearby villages to visit and for those who like to shop plenty of that at nearby Estapona or a bit further along towards Malaga

2nd stay, still great

  • 5 of 5

It was our 2nd stay and it was great again.

The apartment was really clean and in the main, the pool was very quiet.

The apartment is nicely situated for the port of Duquesa and 20min drive from Estepona.

I can't recommend this apartment enough. I might be back next year!

Fantastic well proportioned clean modern apartment

  • 5 of 5

We were two adults one child and a grandparent and could not have been happier with our stay. The apartment is modern, clean and well laid out. The complex is well maintained and quiet so ideal for families that want to avoid the more noisy parts of the area. The beach is very close (a brisk 15 minute walk) but I would recommend a car, as you'll find driving there far easier especially with younger kids and older adults, also you'll need to drive to the supermarkets etc.

The apartment has an excellent internet based TV system with a really excellent array of Sky TV (and a decent number of international) options, which is brilliant when it's too hot for kids to be in the sun, or when they've come home shattered from the beach and just want to watch a cartoon or a movie There is also a DVD player if you want to bring your own movies.

The only thing I'd say could improve the apartment would be the addition of a BBQ, with such wonderful produce available in the local markets it would be nice to be able to grill fish etc on the terrace - but this is only a minor gripe and overall it's a really very agreeable place and we will certainly return.

Perfect in every way

  • 5 of 5

There's no word to explain. We certainly enjoyed every moment of our stay in your apartment. The teenage girls were happy enough to just laze around the pool and enjoy the quiet and tranquility of the whole area. The security people were so helpful and friendly and not to forget Steve Maye who made sure that everything in the apartment was up to the standard. We will certainly make sure that we tell our friends and pass the word around and no doubt in my mind that we will be returning to this beautiful haven.

Thank you so much Chris and Susan.

Owner's Response: Hi Bernadine and Gerry Thank you so much for your review of our apartment and to hear that you enjoyed your time there and that you appreciated the peace and tranquility but yet you are only minutes away from the Marina restaurants and bars. We will pass your comments to Steve as well as it's always nice to be appreciated in a world where we take so much for granted. We look forward to hosting your vacation in the future and do please let your friends know as we do offer a rewards scheme for referrals. Chris and Susan

Located in the Duquesa Golden Mile in the foothills of La Duquesa on the Costa del Sol our apartment is in the exclusive gated resort of Coto Real. When you visit us you will understand why Puerto de la Duquesa really is Spain's best kept Mediterranean secret. A few minutes away from the marina and uncrowded blue flag beaches you have access to a whole range of water sports including sailing and windsurfing. Walking or just relaxing on the lovely beaches is a great way to spend time with the family. Being on the Costa del Golf we are 'next door' to La Duquesa Golf & Country Club and within striking distance of another 40 excellent courses. For sight seeing, within easy reach are Cesares, Ronda, Porto Banus, Marbella, Sotogrande and of course Gibraltar from where you can take a trip to Morocco. For the children Selwo Adventure Park is 15 minutes away with many other theme parks in the locality. The La Duquesa Marina hosts a wide range of affordable restaurants and bars.

Other Activities: sailing, jet skis, boat hire

Golf: The 18 hole course at La Duquesa Golf & Country Club was designed by Robert Trent Jones is in a fantastic position allowing you to enjoy impressive views of the Mediterranean as you play.

La Duquesa is at the heart of the Costa del Golf with over 40 courses for you to choose from. The closest are La Duquesa, Valderrama, Sotogrande, Almenara, San Roque Club, Alcaidesa and Estepona.
