About Richard

Hi, my name is Richard, I live in Hertfordshire, UK and bought the apartment off plan in 2002, it was completed in 2004 and I started renting the apartment out that year. Since then I have come out to Duquesa at least 3 times a year with my family and/or friends for relaxation and fun. I endeavour to give all of our guests a 'home from home' feeling during their stay, whilst offering the apartment at very competitive prices. I look forward one day to being able to stay in No.1 Mikonos Playa for an extended period one day, however work commitments mean that we've been unable to achieve that as yet, so until that time please enjoy the apartment, its terrace and the surrounding area as much as we do throughout the year. Kind regards, Richard.

Richard purchased this apartment in 2003

Why Richard chose Manilva area

I bought No.1 Mikonos because of its location, orientation and terrace, spending 3 times more than I had intended so that I could have the all day sun on its huge terrace and watch the sunrise out of the sea whilst having just a 50m stroll to the marina. Its all been worthwhile, the apartment is everything I it to be and more, the guests love it as much as I do, coming back year after year.

What makes this apartment unique

The large terrace is what everyone raves about, its private, its got all day sun and views, that's not to say the interior isn't lovely too, other apartments also have good and well maintained interiors, but none have the huge south west facing private terrace, its for all of these reasons that No 1 Mikonos is the most popular rental apartment in Duquesa.

What more could you ask?

  • 5 of 5

Nothing! Everything about the apartment was perfect. No humping cases upstairs as there was a lift from the car park. No getting into a sizzling hot car as car park is underground. The actual apartment was the best I have ever stayed in. Bathroom for each bedroom and very comfy beds. The terrace was second to none. We hardly used the beach, Swam in the sea and went back to apartment to sunbathe.

A car isn't really necessary as everything was to hand. Restaurants in plenty and a little supermarket within just a few yards. Will definitely be visiting again.

Fantastic Propoerty, great location

  • 5 of 5

Have stayed in Duquesa before, and as you do, looked around at the different partments on offer.

No1 Mikanos Playa has a hugh terrace that gets sun all day, after all thet's what you've come to Spain for!!

We spent most of our time on the beach or in the marina, both of which are a few minutes (2-3) away, otherwise it was on the terrace.

Don't be off put by it's location close to the marina and adjaent to a car park, you hardly notice!

The appartment, not that we spent much time inside, is great.

Clean, tidy and well furnished, with comfortable beds and efficient air conditioning, basically all that you need.

Tried to book again this year but unfortunately already taken.

Richard the owner - easy communication and arranged somebody to meet us on arrival and show us around.

Great apartment - book with confidence.

Best apartment and location we've stayed at.

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time to Duquesa and how impressed we were by the location and apartment. The large terrace was the best one we've had, as we got the sun first thing in the morning as its rises out of the sea, but more importantly last in the evening which meant we could have a barby for dinner and another glass of vina sol before the sun went down ;-)

With the beach so close, a morning stroll is a delightful start to the day, and guaranteed to brighten you up if you'd had a glass too many the night before! Some bargains can also be found on a trip to the sunday market if you fancy a longer walk! Four of us stayed there and the apartment accommodated us well especially with the spacious lounge area. The jacuzzi bath was also a lovely treat after a day in the sun. We will definitely be back, we have already booked it again for october!

Staying at No 1 Mikonos feels like staying at someone's house, we literally had everything we wanted, from books, games and CD's to sunloungers and fishing rods, Richard you have a lovely apartment and have thought of everything. Thank you for letting us stay there for our holiday, we will definitely be back next year and have already booked it again for October!

Perfect Apartment

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from this apartment in Duquesa and have to say that it was just perfect. From booking the apartment with Richard and his recommendation for car hire (which was excellent) to his directions to the apartment. We didn't have much experience of driving abroad but were happy to find that the transfer from Malaga airport to the apartment was relatively straightforward. When we arrived at the apartment we couldn't believe how lucky we had been to find such a beautiful apartment in a lovely area. The apartment had everything you could possibly need. It was really like being at home only better!! There was even lots of paperback books, cds and dvds to keep you entertained. Not that you needed it. The view from the enormous sun terrace was lovely and you could either just sit and read (in the sun all day) or watch the world go by. It was just a short stroll (1 minute) to the little bars and restaurants around the harbour. We only went for a week but there is certainly enough places to visit for a lot longer stay. Both myself and my husband would like to stay at the apartment again in the future and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to our friends and family.
