About the property

Luxury Two Bedroom Apartment, 68m Private Terrace with All Day Sun and Sea Views

Spend your holiday in an exclusive self catering holiday apartment right alongside the stunning marina of Puerto de la Duquesa. The accommodation includes modern quality furnishings, full hot and cold air conditioning, marble floors, en-suite jacuzzi bath, free wifi and a 47 inch LED TV. In your holiday apartment you have your own huge (68m) private sun terrace with sea views, its south west orientation means you also benefit from all day sunshine literally from sunrise (out of the sea in front of you) to sunset (to the mountains behind). The apartments position is perfect, its 50m from the beach and 50m from the marina, whilst also being pleasantly detached and elevated from those around you. Situated alongside the picturesque marina, you can relax on the apartments private sun terrace, swim in the pool or lay on the beach. You can have a game of golf, maybe go fishing, or just wander through the marina at your leisure, the choice is yours at No 1 Mikonos Playa Duquesa.

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

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hey guys, if your looking for a great place to holiday, you can't go wrong with Richard ( I spoke on the telephone with Richard - A real genuine nice man.) and his apartment, it had everything you could wish for, I was in the supermarket wanting to buy real coffee and I said to my wife there wont be a Cafetiere in the apartment - On our return I went through the kitchen cupboards - Richard proved me wrong, there it was.

The terrace was something else, it is bigger than my back garden at home.

Thank you Richard for a great holiday. The Gallagher Family



We have stayed in Duquesa every year forthe past 10 years, and i can say this is the best place we have stayed in over the years, we had the appartment from the 1st November 2010 and apart from the previous person turning the hot water off we had no problems, I wouldnow say that if we cant get this apartment we will not go back untill its available, I would recommend it to anyone going to Duquesa, thank you.

Fabulous apartment in an ideal location.

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a 10 night stay at this lovely apartment. We were very pleasantly surprised at the accommodation which was nicer than the website pictures. It had everything you would need for your stay. The terrace is amazingly huge, relatively private and catches the sun all day. The apartment is only 5 mins from the lovely beach and coastal path and 2 mins from the marina with its many bars and some very nice restaurants. We have tried to book for later in the year but it is such a lovely property it is fully booked for months ahead. We would love to go back sometime and would definitely recommend it. A thoroughly enjoyable stay.

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.

Fantastic Apartment

  • 5 of 5

Have stayed in Duquesa before so knew area and apartment location.

It's adjacent to the car park at the entrance to the harbour area, so right in the thick of it, a perfect location.

Apartment was clean and well furnished with everything we needed.

But Spain is about the outdoors - this apartment simply has the largest and sunniest private terrace I've ever stayed in.

Went to the shared pool a few times - sunny, clean and plenty of sunbeds.

Really friendly group around the pool, alot who rent long term / own.

Fantastic apartment, great terrace, perfect location - can't recommend highly enough!!!

Amazing! Couldn't rate it any higher.

  • 5 of 5

The directions we were given to the apartment were very clear and straight forward. The accommodation was exactly as we expected, was very welcoming and clean. The pool was just down the hallway so it was easy to take a quick trip there. Had very quick access to the port, which made outings very easy and enjoyable. I would definitely recommend this property to friends and family!

Thoroughly Reccommended!

  • 5 of 5

We've just returned from our holiday at No 1 Mikonos Playa in Duquesa, the place exceeded all our expectations, the terrace is just lovely, the apartment itself has everything you'd want for your holiday including cd's, games and a well euipped kitchen. We'd recommend walks to the west, where we found a coastal path and nature resrve and amazing views towards Gibralter and Morroco. In summary the perfect apartment, we'll probably be back next year!

An apartment with a great location.

  • 4 of 5

We have just returned from a great 2 week family holiday at Mykonos Playa.

The apartment is just far enough away from the bustle of the marina, to avoid much noise, but close enough that a 2 minute walk takes you to the centre of Duquesa.

The highlight of the apartment is most definitely the massive sun terrace. Enough room for everyone, with great views over the chaotic junction below, as tourists descend to find one of the limited parking spaces. We spent many an evening watching the world go by.

The apartment is well served and feels very secure. It is very accurately described on the website which is important.

The air conditioning was a god send in the August heat and the Wi-Fi kept the teenager "connected".

With no hotels in Duquesa, it is a relatively small resort made up of apartments. There were lots of Spanish, Brits & Irish holidaymakers. it is a mini Puerto Banus - plenty restaurants to satisfy a 2 week holiday - our fabourite was La Cubanga on the beach, which served the most amazing scallops. The small supermarket across the road is expensive but was very handy for extras. The Mercadona & Lidl were just along the road - the fish & butchery counter in Lidl were particularly impressive.

All in all, a great apartment in a great location....walkable to everything you would need.
