2 bedroom apartment with shared pool in Manilva, Costa del Sol
September 2017

The apartment was very clean, well maintained and well appointed. It was spacious, with inside and outside dining tables that sat six, as well as a table on the east-facing terrace that sat four - ideal for breakfast sunshine. The terrace facing the pool was big enough for the dining table, wicker style 3 piece and 2 sun loungers. The location was ideal, being within a 5 minute walk of the village and 10 minutes to the beach. The gardens and pools were beautiful and well kept, and being a gated community , very secure. The property was on the ground floor but it had lockable gates on all the external doors meaning that the shutters could be left open and the property would still be secure. We did think the additional cost of €6 a day for power a little steep, having been told this cost would be calculated on usage - but it was not, since the manager on site had no access to the meter box. However, this was not a reflection on the property but the agency.

Top-of-the-range: Five-star indeed! Located right on the edge of the beach. This apartment is extremely well-appointed and comfortable. It has all the bells and whistles for creature comforts and yet is very restful and (almost) idyllic. We were there for a week and will be back for more very soon. The attention to detail is appreciated. All the way from detailed driving directions, to personalized meet and greet arrangements and a welcome basket of goodies. The landscaped pool is a great hit with the kids. The area has a lot to do and see for everyone. Great eating choices - including several within strolling distance. DEFINITELY a winner.

Apartments for rent in Manilva

Bordering with the province of Cadiz in the west, Manilva is a town and district at the southwestern edge of Malaga Province in Andalucia, on Spain’s southern coast. With lush vineyards on one side and the sparkling Mediterranean on the other, Manilva district is comprised of three parts; Manilva town itself, the coastal villages of San Luis de Sabinillas and Castillo de la Duquesa. Although a modern coastal resort, Manilva still oozes traditional village charm. Enjoy a low-key holiday by the coast, while being just a stone’s throw from the main crowds of the Costa del Sol. 

Blessed with an 8km-long coastline, Manilva boasts some of the best beaches in the region. From the spacious stretches of sand and pebbles to the modern facilities, play areas, amusement parks and lively promenades bustling with bars, shops and chiringuitos, the beaches of Castillo de la Duquesa and San Luis Sabinillas are ideal for a family holiday. To the west coast discover a sprinkling of tranquil beaches such as La Chullera, Las Arenas, Cala Sardina, Negro and Los Torros, where you can laze the day away unwind.

Puerto de la Duquesa, lively with shops, bars and restaurants, houses La Duquesa Golf Club and Manilva’s crown jewel, the 18th century Castillo de la Duquesa, well worth a visit.
