About the property

Near to bars and restaurants four swimming pools, golf, disabled friendly.

This is our home from home, and we have tried to make it the same for you, with lots of little touches that will make you feel at home straightaway. It is a hot and cold air conditioned 2 bed 2 bathroom apartment on beach and short walk to bars and restaurants. Sea view and view of pool and garden. The main bedroom is ensuite, with a separate guest bathroom.

There are 4 swimming pools, paddle tennis, library and gym on site. Excellent golf course 5 minutes walk. Large terrace for alfresco dining. Suitable for wheelchairs and grab rail in bath. Lifts to all floors. Parking space available. Wifi is available in the apartment as is an internet TV package. Beautiful and quiet port area with plenty of nice bars and restaurants but not suitable for clubbers. Excellent beach bars. Assistance available from local agents. Trips available including Gibraltar, Morocco, Ronda, Selwo Safari, people watching in Puerto Banus and white villages in mountains. Boat hire from Marina.

Kitchen includes fridge freezer, microwave and washing machine plus everything you need. My wife, Laraine, is a keen cook and collected a number of utensils, which means that the kitchen is perhaps better equipped than usual. 32' flat screen TV with limited Sky and Spanish TV, music centre, games, puzzles and books. All main rooms have ceiling fans. In fact everything for a great holiday young or old.

Golf: We can organise golf packages on request.

Wheelchair and electric buggy users have managed well in the apartment. We installed special grab rail in the main bathroom. Welcome food pack available. We operate a book exchange so if you take one please replace it. Sky box is there and additional programs can be obtained if you bring your Sky card although this is very limited now, so we have a comprehensive internet TV package now. On the balcony is a table and chairs to seat 6 plus 2 recliners. We have never eaten indoors, as the balcony is large ebough to seat 6 comfortably, but the facilities are there. The gym is up and running now, and key is obtained from security, but trainers must be worn. We haven't tried the sauna yet. Supermarket (Supermercado) 5 mins away and very reasonable, plus small shops on the edge of the port, including a very good English butcher on thev far side of the port.


Excellent! 4.4/5 -

Beautiful setting and very nice apartment

  • 4 of 5

Very nice apartment close to the marina and beach. Only downside was that the outdoor terrace got no direct sun anytime in the day. Had a few issues with the TV reception and internet that took a few days to resolve. Would suggest more details on who to contact to get problems resolved. Overall, we would recommend this rental . The area is very quiet with a number of restaurants in the marina and more in Sabinillas. Fairly close to Estepona (14 km) a nice town with a nice boardwalk and shops in the old central area. Casares and Ronda are great trips to take. Close enough for days trips to Tangiers and Gibraltar. The Costa del Sol ahas a number of interesting towns and Malaga is worth visiting. Well worth seeing Granada, Cordoba, Seville and Cadiz.

Apartment Smelt of Sewage

  • 1 of 5

The apartment smelt of sewage. We reported it twice but the maintenance men said they could not smell it. Our friends who visited us also said it was awful and we should not have had to stay in an apartment that smelt so bad. The owners have since commented that it happens in the apartment block sometimes that is why there are fans. We bought candles to try and mask the smell. We would have come home early if it was not for our friends. I would not recommend this apartment or the block to anyone.

Owner's Response: I am very sorry that Hilary experienced this. It seems that an adjacent apartment suffered a leak that caused some odours to come into our apartment. This has now been fixed, I understand. As I explained to Hilary, we installed fans into the outlets in the bathrooms to deal with normal usage, but clearly they were not enough to cope with such an unusual problem. There should be no further problems. We are also installing Wifi this week for our renters. Simon (owner)

Nice holiday

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in Duquesa for nearly 5 weeks (may-june).

The apartment is located perfectly between tourist town-like Puerto and local pueblo called Sabinillas. Nearby there were plenty of shops, playgrounds, beaches, bars etc, but a car is a must if you want to visit other cities, beaches and to see some culture. The best rental price was offered by the only rental service in Puerto de la Duquesa, I can not remember the exact name, but it is about 3 mins from the apartment and you can not miss it in puerto. Cheap, fast and very good service in english. (Hertz, Sixt, and others are take at least double, if not triple the price).

Our family is not from England, previously we had only stayed in hotels and we had 2 children with us, so we were a little worried about our nightly arrival. However, Simon was very helpful and gave us all necessary information by e-mail and everything was precisely as he said it would be, which was beyond our expectations. Thank you :)

The apartment itself was good, nothing luxurious, but it had everything necessary. One could see that it was not entirely new apartment but it was clean and spacious enough for us. The terrace was overlooking a nice quiet pool :) The apartment is on the seaside and there is a long promenade to both ways - Sabinillas and Puerto. However, the sea on our beach was very cold and we had to drive all the way to Tarifa to swim in the ocean (not that we complain, Tarifa is a great place). We strongly suggest to visit Ronda, Tarifa, Gibraltar, which we liked the most.

A tip - the food in Sabinillas is much better and cheaper than in Puerto. For example a plate full of gorgeous langusts and shrimps in Sabinillas was 5 €, versus a plate full of grease, oily meat and french fries was 10 €. Also, if you speak a little spanish, you get a discount in Sabinillas restaurants:)

Overall it was a great holiday and a nice place for families with children!
