About Chris & Susan Beesley
We are accountants by profession and love to travel. It was always our dream to own a property in the sunshine and the Costa del Sol was the perfect location. We can visit whenever we want and also able to share it with guests who respect it is our home and want a "home from home" experience in beautiful surroundings
Why Chris & Susan Beesley chose Manilva
We chose Coto Real for sunshine and this particular property because we believe that like ourselves you will enjoy the tranquility and luxury of the secure resort complex and the apartment. We have furnished it as we would our home and know you will appreciate that.

A little bit of luxury
This apartment is beautifully appointed and well laid out. The towels are of a good quality and it really helped having beach/pool towels too. It is just a short walk to the pool and you can see it and the sea from the Terrace. The Terrace is deep and generous and would definitely benefit from a couple of loungers or some outside sofas. This would continue the high standard of the interior and provide somewhere to relax outside in private rather than just by the pool. The air conditioning was amazing and it was easy to keep the apartment cool. The Urbanisation is in a good location and it is easy to get to the Port, to the beach and to Estapona and Sotogrande. The owners were quick to reply to our enquires and were really helpful with working around some were awkward flight times.
Thank you for your lovely review and the 5 Stars. It means a lot not just to us but future guests who are comparing with other similar properties for their vacation
We like to think that what we offer appeals to a discerning guest and thanks for your feedback
Yes we are on a mission regards finding some loungers for the terrace - we did have them before but they were not very durable and got quickly damaged being subject to the vagaries of the weather etc. We are on the case.
Once again thank you and we look forward to welcoming you back in the future

3rd great stay. Love it.
This was our 3rd visit to this apartment and it was just as good as before. We were met by the new agents who let us into the apartment and explained things that had changed since our last visit.
The apartment was very clean, nice fixture and fittings, new sofa, new TV with lots of channels and new WiFi which seemed much better.
The large terrace is great and allows a lot of sun and shade at various times throughout the day and it seems bigger than other properties in the complex and the proximity to the pool area is a big plus. Nice pool area with small baby pool and well kept gardens and not too overcrowded.
Overall, I can’t fault it. The owners are very easy to communicate with and nothing seems too much trouble. I wouldn’t hesitate to stay again.
Thank you for such a lovely review that makes it valuable to future guests considering whether to choose our property. We think these things are important but when a guest takes the time to comment on them it's more real
We are very happy to have you visit us again for the third time - it must be like home from home to you and the family now.
Thanks again and look forward to welcoming you back in the future

Comfortable, Spacious, Environment
Our holiday started with a warm smiley welcome from the property manager who showed us around and explained everything in the apartment, provided everything we needed, and gave us great tips on where to eat and what sites to see.
The property itself was exactly as described, perfectly clean, and well maintained. We had a wonderful week there. It was relatively quiet, cool, and very comfortable. We were able to work on our laptops sitting at the large table on the terrace, which was perfect with a view of the sea.
We did day trips to Marbella (shopping), Cadiz (Roman ampithetre), Tarifa (to see the Rock of Gibraltar and Africa, and to paddle in the Atlantic Ocean then the Mediterranean 1 minute later), and Ronda (stunning drive through the mountain villages to a stunning world heritage site). So you definitely need a car.
There's a huge choice of restaurants in Duquesa port - have fun trying as many as possible and spread your custom around - we did. That said, there's also a great supermarket, and the kitchen is perfect to rustle up a quick meal.
You'll have fun there. So, go ahead and book it :)

We look forward to having you back again

Great accommodation in a secure relaxing complex near to the marina
This accommodation was exactly as advertised. All mod cons and comfy beds. A really secure complex.
The balcony was a great size with the sun from rise until about 6pm. Always balcony shade area as well. We loved the fact that you could wake from the balcony to the nearby pool or just lie in sunbeds at the grassy area in front of the apt.
The complex is only a 20 min walk to the marine and 9€ in a taxi back up. Lots of great bars and restaurants.
The only addition you would wish for is loungers on the balcony and rattan furniture as there is plent of room.
Thank you for your review as this helps our future guest decide to choose to stay with us
Thank you also for your suggestions for the terrace

Located in the Duquesa Golden Mile in the foothills of La Duquesa on the Costa del Sol our apartment is in the exclusive gated resort of Coto Real. When you visit us you will understand why Puerto de la Duquesa really is Spain's best kept Mediterranean secret. A few minutes away from the marina and uncrowded blue flag beaches you have access to a whole range of water sports including sailing and windsurfing. Walking or just relaxing on the lovely beaches is a great way to spend time with the family. Being on the Costa del Golf we are 'next door' to La Duquesa Golf & Country Club and within striking distance of another 40 excellent courses. For sight seeing, within easy reach are Cesares, Ronda, Porto Banus, Marbella, Sotogrande and of course Gibraltar from where you can take a trip to Morocco. For the children Selwo Adventure Park is 15 minutes away with many other theme parks in the locality. The La Duquesa Marina hosts a wide range of affordable restaurants and bars.
Other Activities: sailing, jet skis, boat hire
Golf: The 18 hole course at La Duquesa Golf & Country Club was designed by Robert Trent Jones is in a fantastic position allowing you to enjoy impressive views of the Mediterranean as you play.
La Duquesa is at the heart of the Costa del Golf with over 40 courses for you to choose from. The closest are La Duquesa, Valderrama, Sotogrande, Almenara, San Roque Club, Alcaidesa and Estepona.
