What Customers Are Saying


Here are some of the wonderful stories our guests have written about their stay

“We had a great time in a fantastic apartment in a perfect location. Sara is great and leaves you with the impression nothing is too much trouble for her and she just wants you to have a great holiday. Highly recommended and we have booked again for 2020!”


Mike D’M  August 2019


“Arrived on the 1st Oct for 1 weeks holiday, very welcoming, lovely and clean apartment in duquesa Courtyard, with a private pool at the rear, only a 10 min walk to the port where there are lots of bars and resturants to choose from. Would highly recommend.”

Karen Louise Howard 16th October


“Sara provides an excellent property management service, paying close attention to detail, and going above and beyond in helping out with anything we may need to ask for help with. It is reassuring to know that while we are in the UK, our apartment in Monte Duquesa is being well looked after by Sara and the team that she has on board. We cannot fault Sara on anything, and highly recommend her services.”

This was a great find! Beautiful apartment which matched the exact standards of the photographs. It is really spacious and is in a great location. It is a 2 minute walk to the pool, there is a lovely little sandwich shop and bar just one minute away and its very close to the port. I stayed here with my two children and there was plenty for them to do in the area. Although it is just under an hour from Malaga airport it is in a really nice part of Spain, so it’s worth the journey!”

Brilliant, Spotless, Great

This is an easy review..! As a landlord, Greg was easy to communicate with and very attentive to queries/concerns etc. We were met at the property by Greg’s nominated key-holder, no delays..a welcome pack awaited us along with an array of local/tourist info. The apartment is tastefully furnished with everything we needed to make it comfortable..TV, internet that worked!!, kitchen appliances etc.. Loved the fact Greg even supplied a beach bag full of beach towels! Greg has gone to some lengths to ensure we felt welcome and comfortable so in return, “Thanks Greg, you really made a difference!” Suffice to say we will definitely book again, Duquesa is a great location, easy distance to Marbella and/or Gibraltar and the apartment is just a few minutes walk from the port. Great pool, air con that works, working lift.. very spacious living room..what more can I say..! We have stayed in many holiday lets and this one surpassed them all easily – and we’re not afraid to say if we don’t like something – like the apartment just up the coast in Casares that we rented last October. Absolutely recommend this one, thanks for everything.”

We are a Yorkshire couple who live in Ireland and have visited Duquesa many times over the last 4 years. This was the first time that we stayed in Gregs beautiful apartment. It was great we were met by Jeff (keyholder) who was waiting for us when we arrived which is great after a long journey the apartment was spotless thanks to Angela (cleaner) who along with Jeff are a delight the apartment is very spacious and everything is there that you need. Kellys bar in the courtyard only stays open till approx 10 30 so there was no problem with noise, Trish and Chris at Kellys bar were great the apartment suits us so much we have booked it for 6 months this winter.

We have just spent a week in Greg’s apartment and we had a wonderful time.
Greg is really easy to deal with and very prompt with replies to enquiries etc.
The apartment was even lovelier than we expected, the photos don’t really do it justice. It is very large and has plenty of room for 4 people (even though there were only 2 of us) with en suite bathrooms to each bedroom.
It is an easy walk down to the harbour where there are a great selection of restaurants and bars and a lovely beach either side of the harbour. The swimming pool is very close too, although we did not use it as we were there in November.
I would recommend hiring a car though as public transport seems very limited. Then you can go and explore the fabulous mountain villages and towns, We spent a night in Ronda which is spectacular. We also went to Gibraltar for the day which is very close by.
I would happily stay here again.

What an absolute joy. We were met at the property by Greg’s key-holder, a welcome pack awaited us along with lots of local/tourist information.

The apartment is beautifully furnished, everything we needed to make our stay special. All appliances and services worked and we even had a new beach towels supplied. Great attention to detail ensured that we will be future visitors to this lovely apartment in De La Duquesa.
Greg and his team went to great lengths to make sure our stay was a special one and we will be sure to spread the word about this diamond find. Thanks Greg and we can’t wait to return.”

After scrolling around the internet looking for apartments to stay in we came across Greg’s apartment in Monte Duquesa. After reading some of the reviews we contact Greg and asked for a quote for our stay (2 adults & 2 children). Greg was very professional dealing with our enquiry from start to finish, he directed us to his website where we found lots more information and prices. For the price that we paid it was simply great, I am already planning our return stay, that’s if they are not fully booked at this rate. I can only agree with the other reviews, if you want a pleasant get away with no horrible surprises, then this is the place for you. Hope to see you next year!”
