En ce qui concerne la résidence nous pouvons dire qu'elle est convenable dans la mesure où elle est calme , qu'il y a une piscine ainsi qu'un parking souterrain et fermé.
Le problème est plutôt dans l'agencement de l'appartement. Il y a de la place perdue dans le salon par des meubles inutiles et pas assez de place pour poser les valises.
Il y a 2 salles de bain ce qui est un plus mais pas non plus de disposition convenable pour poser des objets courants. Quant à la cuisine , la vaisselle était sale ( à revoir) et les couteaux ne coupent rien ! .Certes on peut s'en contenter mais par rapport au prix on est en droit d'attendre mieux.
Je déplore aussi que les commentaires ne soient pas libres mais encadrés.
Hello Herve. I am disappointed in your reply. My manager asked you if everything was ok and said that you were happy. As everyone can see from my other reviews, the apartment is immaculate and I have never had a negative word said about it. You saw the pictures of the lounge on the Home Away web site prior to booking so you clearly have no reason to complain. If you did not like it from the pictures I have to ask why did you book ? I absolutely bust a gut to make sure everyone is happy in my apartment, and the reviews show this. If there were issues with a blunt knife, why did you not ask my manager ? The fridge broke once and within an hour he replaced it. That is the service we provide. I would have gladly replaced all of the knives immediately however if you do not tell me then how do I know ? And to be frankfully honest with you, does that really warrant a 2* review ? I am going there personally in early October and I will check the knifes and replace them. If I find they are not blunt I will reply back on the review. I always like to be fair and help people but clearly you did not give me the opportunity. You should have raised the issues instead of giving me such a poor review. I could have solved them then. However, I do understand that some people may be difficult to please under any situation. As per the rental agreement and documentation I sent you, there is underground storage, which is absolutely perfect for storing the suitcases. That being said, I have holidaymakers in all year round and no-one else has ever mentioned that being a problem.
I can see that you were not happy and would be happy if you could review your low rating please because in all fairness, does a blunt knife and a suitcase issue really warrant a 2* rating. I am happy to hear from you and I am always happy for constructive feedback so that I can continue to improve the apartment and ensure everyone has a great time there.
I have attempted to contact you directly via personal email so that we can resolve this, and you have not replied, which is a shame.
It's a shame. A review 3 weeks later does not help you solve the blunt knives issue or the suitcase one, yet both could have been sorted with one text message or call. I am sorry that those two things may have ruined your holiday enough to give me a 2* rating.
As for the reviews being "framed". That is impossible because only guests who book on this site can place a review.
Great apartment in good location!
My husband and I have just returned from a couple of weeks' stay in this apartment and were very pleased with it. The property was as described and we found everything that we needed was included. The beds were great and the bed linen and towels were of a very good quality. The kitchen and equipment was good and there was a washing machine if you need to wash your clothes. Good TV with UK channels available. The sea and country view from the balcony was amazing and there were 3 birds of prey that spent a lot of time perched on an old tree right opposite the patio doors and they would keep us entertained us for hours with their swooping and searching for food! One day we had a huge herd of goats pass by and spend the afternoon grazing down below the apartment (outside the complex fence though!) The apartment had private parking space downstairs in the communal garage, so it was easy to come back from the beach or the shops, park the car and just ride up in the lift to the apartment. The beach close to the apartment was great and there was a lovely little chiringuito with clean toilets, serving food and drinks and some sunbeds that were free of charge. The beaches along the coast were all as pristine and well cared-for and were mainly empty of people, so perfect for quiet beach days. Gibraltar is only 35 minutes' drive away and easy to get to, as are so many towns that are great to visit. Estepona's old town is definitely worth a visit and offers lots of lovely restaurants as well as a fantastic beach. The port of La Duquesa was very close and we did eat there one night but found that it was just another port full of British ex-pat boat-owners and pricey restaurants. We preferred to go to Las Sabinillas, which we found offered good restaurants with more local atmosphere. There was a great little fish and chip restaurant/take-away called "Marlows" located nearby, next to the Eroski supermarket, that we did eat in a few times. As well as the usual "proper" fish and chip dinners, they did excellent Sunday roasts at a good price. A little closer to the apartment, there was a brilliant Argentinian steak house called "El Estribo" . Quite expensive but with fabulous steaks and excellent wines! All in all, we had a great trip!
The property was as described online. It was clean and tidy and we didn’t have any problems at all. It is within walking distance to the beach and also if you prefer the swimming was really close and a good size.
The only slight negative we had and it wasn’t anything to do with the apartment was that the swimming pool didn’t open until around midday. This was because they had to have a lifeguard on duty which is totally understandable for safety but not ideal if you want a morning swim.
We would definitely use the apartment again if we travel to that area again. 👍
Family summer holiday
My family stayed at Nigel's place for one week in July. Communication was very good from the whole time, Nigel and the on site contact Chris were very friendly and helpful. The apartment was located in a very nice and secure compound, beautiful and well-kept gardens and pool and convinient garage. We really loved the pool area, never too busy and always free sun beds. Clean and good size pool where our 8 and 9 year old daughters spent hours and hours. The apartment itself was good size for a family of 4 and had everything we needed. I really loved the huge balcony and the views! There is a mini market very close with surprisingly good selection. The beach is close by as well (about 5min. walk from apartment). You can take a nice walk there with mountain views and you have several beach bars to select from. Beach walk or short drive to Playa de la Duquesa is something to recommend, also visit to beautiful Estepona. Our family had the perfect holiday here!
Lovely clean apartment and plenty of equipment to self cater.The gardens are kept very tidy and a pleasure to sit in. The owner and onsite manager were both really helpful and communication prior to going and whilst there was great.
Côte / Plage:
5 minutes à pied de la plage de sable la plus proche, et notre appartement a une vue sur la mer et une colline. Complètement privé et sans vis à vis du tout.
L'aéroport de Malaga est de 65 miles de là, et l'aéroport de Gibraltar est de 15 miles. Son un voyage vraiment facile le long soit l'A7 ou AP7 route à péage, les deux qui sont parallèles à la côte. Je estime 55 minutes en voiture de Malaga et environ une demi-heure de l'aéroport de Gibraltar.
L'emplacement offre un accès idéal pour les domaines d'intérêt suivants: -
La Duquesa Marina, à 5 minutes en voiture au maximum, 40 minutes belle promenade de la plage.
Marbella et Puerto Banus un court 30 minutes en voiture.
Sotogrande 15 minutes, 30 minutes de Gibraltar.
Charmante ville à flanc de colline intacte de Mijas, avec les ânes, une heure.
Pour la sortir de jour de plus, il ya la magnifique ville historique de Séville, à 2 heures de route, Grenade et les magnifiques palais de l'Alhambra 3 heures de route.
Faites une promenade le long de la plage dans La Duquesa Marina, l'arrêt à un bar de la plage littéralement toutes les 5 minutes le long du chemin. Ceci est une petite ville magnifique, plein de restaurants de toutes nationalités, de bons bars et les zones de café. Petites échoppes autour de la zone de la marina en haute saison. Je l'ai visité toutes les stations balnéaires sur la côte et ne peut vraiment dire La Duquesa est le plus beau de tous. Juste à côté de cela est Sabinillas, une ville plus espagnol, avec des restaurants fantastiques le long du front de mer. Les banques et les supermarchés ici aussi.
Il ya un supermarché une minutes en voiture, un autre 5 minutes en voiture, et un énorme hypermarché Carreffour à seulement 15 minutes en bas de la route à Estepona.
Illimité fiable privée internet / Wifi rapide disponible dans notre appartement. Non partagé. Lié au téléviseur pour accéder à toutes les chaînes de télévision du Royaume-Uni.
