About Janice or Eleanor

We are Eleanor and Steve, Janice and Jonathan, two families who have been friends for over 30 years and who jointly own the property which we also enjoy staying for several weeks each year. Hence the property has been fitted to a high standard giving a home from home feeling.

Janice or Eleanor purchased this apartment in 2004

Why Janice or Eleanor chose Manilva

We selected this particular property because of its peaceful location away from the busyness of the Coast being in view of the sea and the mountains and yet only 1 Km from the Port with all its shops and restaurants.

What makes this apartment unique

South facing terrace , large semi sheltered terrace which catches year round sun with a stunning view.

Furnished to a high quality with a well equipped kitchen. The apartment has both WiFi including English TV channels.

Super apartment in great location, family friendly

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is everything you need from a self catering holiday. Can't fault anything only praise the apartment and it's owners. Wifi and English TV a bonus. The location is second to none we think in this part of Spain. We were able to escape the holiday masses in August, On a couple of days me and the daughters had one of the pools to ourselves. Relax on the balcony with fantastic views. But also plenty to do in the area in duquesa itself, estepona, Marbella, tarifa and even Africa. Will be back soon.

A great place to recharge your batteties

  • 5 of 5

Having just returned from the Duquesa Suites, I can honestly say I haven't felt so relaxed after a holiday in a long time. The setting is idyllic and the apartment is pristine with every facility you can wish for to make your holiday completely comfortable and totally stress free. The apartment is large and spacious and it felt like my home as soon as I put the key in the door! Waking up to the beautiful surrounds was just perfect. I can understand now why people come back year after year. I am just sorting out my dates for my next stay! I can highly recommended this to you. It beats most of the places I have stayed in the world. Bonnes vacances!

Wonderful stay

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in apt. 335. It is very well equipped, the kitchen has all that we needed and more. Children are not forgotten. Toys for the beach, games. And a perfect wifi connection.

If I could give some recommendations: some of the games are incomplete and could better be removed. A lot of the information about the surroundings is piled up since years and I felt that the terrace furniture could be renewed. For future guests: do not forget the Roman baths. Nearby and very special. And the restaurant at Casares beach, where you can enjoy wonderful food and enjoy beautiful views and the sunset. Forgot its name though.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. Pleased you had an enjoyable stay. With regard to your recommendations we are presently staying at the apartment and we shall replace games, toys and literature pack where necessary. So far as the terrace furniture is concerned we have carried out a full inspection and other than dust from the earlier renovation they are in good condition. Thank you for your tip about the Chiringuito restaurant which we have sampled and the Roman Baths which we are going to investigate whilst here. Kind regards The Owners

Spacious, Well Equipped, Lovely Setting

  • 5 of 5

What a delightful apartment. Absolutely no fault to be found.

Spacious, Well Equipped, Clean and Tidy

I don't think you could want for anything in the apartment.

Gorgeous view of the Sea from the Balcony, very much enjoyed eating Breakfast while taking in the view.

2 Lovely pools and nice gardens also.

Duquesa Port is very nice also, plenty of food and drink options, whilst dreaming about owning one of the boats in the harbour.

Owner's Response: We also love sitting on the terrace as the view is very special. In fact it was the main reason for purchasing the apartment because of its position on the complex in being able to see the sea. Look forward to welcoming you again.

spacious & well equipped

  • 4 of 5

Had fabulous holiday in duquesa, the apartment in duquesa suites was spacious, well equipped and very clean. We were less than 10 minutes walk from the port, a bit of a hill walking back to the apartments but very manageable even with strollers. The owner of the apartment, Janice & Eleanor were great to deal with. Will definitely be back.
