Lovely views and a great spot
Good size, well equipped apartment with direct access from terrace to 3 pools. We were there at Easter and it was very, very quiet. I think we were the only occupants in the block. Terrace is half covered so we were still able to have a BBQ even on a rainy day.
Mandi's communication and helpfulness was spot on throughout and she is very easy to deal with.
Various people claim various distances to the marina so just to be pedantic, it's exactly a 2km downhill walk. We have kids of 5 and 7 and it took us 25 mins or so down and 30 mins up. It's easy to get a taxi from the rank in Duquesa though and was just under 10 Euros if you don't fancy the walk back up.
Duquesa is a really chilled out little Marina with good restaurant options mainly catering to the British and Irish holiday crowd.
Another 5-10 mins stroll along the promenade brings you to Playa de Sabillinas, which leans more towards the locals. Some great tapas options there.
The only downside was the sheer amount of dog poo on the beach, pavements; everywhere really. Despite the number of signs, people blatantly just don't seem to clean up after their dogs. It wouldn't stop me returning to this part of Spain, but i thought i would mention it.
Thanks Andy! Glad you had a good stay.
Winter in Manilva
Our stay was late February to early March. The weather was sunny most of the time and the large terrace allowed us to enjoy breakfast and lunch some of the time in the sun. Sometimes there was strong cold wind which kept us inside though. The air conditioning was excellent, however, and kept the apartment warm when needed.
The apartment was well equipped and did not disappoint, it was as advertised. The location of the apartment made it an excellent base for exploring the coast and the mountains behind.
We found Mandi to be very responsive and helpful.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and hope to stay there again.
Thank you both! Please do not hesitate to contact me should you wish to stay again

Couldn’t fault this , great accommodation, huge patio area and no more than 20 metres from a great quiet pool. Owners will tell you all you need to know about the area and make recommendations on places to eat, visit etc.
Thank you! Glad you enjoyed your stay
This is the third time I have been to this apartment, it is fabulous! amazing huge balcony with direct steps down to the pool. The apartment has everything you need! This time I took my mother who has difficulty walking and she loved it, the direct lift down the pool made things so easier. I would highly recommend coming here, the location is great also.
