SUPER 2 BED APARTMENT LOOKING OUT OVER DUQUESA MARINA

Puerto de la Duquesa Apartment Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 4 (1 double)

If you are looking for the perfect getaway in the sunshine, then look no further. My spacious apartment in Southern Spain is in a fantastic location directly overlooking Duquesa Marina on the Costa del Sol. It has 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, is fully air conditioned/heated, and has marble floors throughout. The sitting room leads onto the balcony - which is not only perfect for ‘people watching’ but also boasts of panoramic views of the mountains, sea, and along the coast. There is a fully fitted kitchen, with all mod cons, and laundry room. There are two community pools and the lower pool opens directly onto the beach. There is 24 hour security and underground parking. There is free good WIFI in the apartment. There is good golf (and various other sports), good boating (even, possibly on my boat), some very beautiful countryside, and of course there is the Spanish sunshine! Please see my personal website for more detail and more photos - link at bottom

Television: The Sony Bravia television is quite superb. It receives Spanish terrestrial and digital services, Feesat 'free to air' programmes, plays DVD's and CD's, and you can even play music from your mp3 or phone. As with the rest of Spain however, we have now lost the BBC and ITV programmes (due to a change of satellites) - options for correcting this are under investigation.

Boating: I can arrange boat trips to see the dolphins, or to any of the nearby ports (say for lunch), or to see the seaward side of Gibraltar, etc.. This can either be on my boat (but I would have to ask for a contribution to overheads) or with one of the commercial operations in the port.

Key Issue: This apartment is my home. When you are staying in it, I will be staying on my boat or with my girlfriend not far away. There are advantages and disadvantages to this: I am readily accessible for advice, keys, problems, etc. and can introduce you to the facilities in Duquesa. I will be visible to you, and, although very unlikely, I may want to come in from time to time for say clothes or unanticipated needs. You will be staying in a 'home' equipped for living, as opposed to a rental apartment with the bare necessities. I am happy for you to use the provisions, but would just ask you to leave an appropriate contribution, or replace.

Apartment over Duquesa Marina

  • 5 of 5
This location is perfect with a large balcony overlooking the Marina..Minutes away from bars and restaurants in the Port. The more tradiional town of Sabinillas is a 15 minute walk along the beach and prom. The bus service is very good (and cheap) and although we had a car it was nice to use the bus to get around,especially if you intend to visit Gibraltar.

The apartment is beautiful and comfortable with all mod-cons and easy parking.We sunbathed around the two swimming pools (it was a bit to cold to take the plunge in March) and also around the beach restaurant which is only 5mins away from the apartments.The owner is also in the area if you needed to make contact during your stay.

Highly recommended.

Very well recommended.

My family and I had a lovely stay in John's apartment. It had everything we needed and was absolutely spotless and in beautiful condition. We enjoyed breakfasts on the balcony with the fantastic view. Early september was a brilliant time to stay at John's apartment as the weather was beautiful and the marina was not too busy. There are many restaurants on the doorstep to enjoy but the grocery shops are only a short distance walk. I would thoroughly recommend John's apartment!

Fabulous Duquesa

  • 5 of 5
What a wonderful place to spend some relaxation time and what a great apartment to enjoy it from.We flew into Malaga and picked up the hire car, a lovely run down the A7 and easily found Duquesa where we were met at the car park by John who took us up to his apartment which was spotlessly clean and very well equipped,( much better than the average S/C) and out on to the balcony..what a view a visit to the Jolly Sailor for some good food and great atmosphere and our holiday had really begun. John was a great host and we really enjoyed our trip out on his boat
The Marina is very tranquil and friendly with lots of good options to eat and drink. Thanks John and Lesley for sharing this wonderful place with us and we cannot wait to come back.

Great Getaway

  • 4 of 5
Great location, perfect for that spanish getaway. Close to the shops, the beach, the pool, as well as all the other things Duquesa has to offer. Great view from the balcony! Close to Estapona and Peurto Banus if you fancy a trip out. We had a great time. Thanks John!

Puerto de la Duquesa, on the Costa del Sol, offers the perfect setting in which to relax and unwind, with an excellent choice of restaurants offering international and local cuisine, bars, cafes and shops, including two small supermarkets. The beaches are exceptionally clean with good local beach bars. There is a choice of 8 championship golf courses within fifteen minutes drive, and you are also within easy reach of Puerto Banus, Estepona, Sotogrande and Gibraltar. The location is ideal for both family & sporting holidays.

Golf: I can arrange golf for you on any of the local courses, and at very competitive rates. Please email me to discuss.
