* Located on Spain’s Costa del Sol, on the coast between Estepona and Gibraltar
* 2 minutes walk from several kilometers of un-spoilt beaches and 2 beach bars / restaurants
* Supermarket – 2 km up the road
* 3 miles from Puerto Duquesa & the stunning beach side town of Sabinillas,
* 5 mins from the exclusive Sotogrande marina and within easy reach of Estepona
* Within a few minutes drive are world championship golf courses, such as Valderrama, Sotogrande, San Roque and many others
* Other activities include Water Park for the children, wild life park, riding, sailing, polo, diving, walking, culture and history
* El Oasis has the advantage of being exceptionally easy to find - its grand white entrance arch cannot be missed from the coastal road (located between Puerto de la Duquesa / Sabinillas and Sotogrande).

PLEASE NOTE, before you read any further, Manilva / Puerto de Duqeusa & Sabinillas (all within 5 miles of each other) are not your typical British Holiday Resort, e.g. Magaluf or Benidorm, full of burger bars and fish & chip shops.

This area is very up market and has a lot of typical Spanish character, and is not frequented by Package Tours. If you like package tour holidays and do not like doing your own thing then Manilva is not the place for you!! Whilst this is an upmarket area the prices do not reflect the very expensive prices that you will find in Marbella & Puerto Banus.

There are so many things to do and see - we could write about this area forever!! Further information on our area is available on request

Both Apartments – 25th August, 2008

What a great place! Not too far away from everything, but far enough for a peaceful retreat after a long day.

Both of the apartments we had are fully equipped for everything – BBQ’s, drinks, cooking a roast dinner; and such a luxury to have top class knives! We had fab weather and visited just a few of the places close by - the new water park in Algazeries, Gibraltar and the harbour in Duquesa.

The “Cubanga Beach Bar” is a must – just to the left of Duquesa Marina. They serve fresh fish of the day, and georgous paella, and lots of cocktails!! The food there is really good quality.

Overall all 12 of us have had a great time. Thank you Kay for your fast response to all of my emails about various different things – you are really so organised. We’d love to come back some time. “watch this space”… Carolynn & party

Hello Kay,

A bit late, but I just wanted to write to let you know what a wonderful two week holiday we had in August.

Having the benefit of a constant sea breeze was wonderful. This was highlighted when we moved to our 2nd location towards the end of our holiday. The other apartment that we stayed in was a bit in land, and because there was no sea breeze it was noticeably hotter and uncomfortable.

The view from the balcony is stunning and the apartment was immaculately presented and very well equipped. The local beach (a few minutes walk away) is lovely and a favorite with the boys as there are always wonderful stones and shells to be found in abundance. The local beach bar is good value for money and very traditionally Spanish. A couple of evenings we took a cooked chickens home with us from the beach bar to have with some salad for supper. Delicious!

We had a great time and did quite a lot of sight seeing. We went to Gibraltar and did the tour or the rock again. The boys loved it, especially having their pictures taken with a monkey on their shoulders! The duty free shopping is not to be missed either!

We drove to Tarifa twice which is about a 50 minute drive away from the apartments. The beach is beautiful, and very un-spoilt & watching the kite surfers and ferries to Africa is amazing and so relaxing. White soft sand and the kites are spectacular. The view over the Gibraltar Straights on the drive there is just to die for!! Such lovely scenery, and even green in summer!!

There is a new Waterpark in Algeciras which we also went to twice. Needless to say the boys loved it. It's a very well organised place and you can hire beds/parasols for the whole day. Plenty of facilities but we took a picnic with us.

The Sunday market in Estepona is well worth a visit and it's good to look at all of the boats on the marina. Sabillinas has a lovely beach with numerous beach bars and restaurants. There is also a very large play area on the promenade.

I would certainly recommend your apartments to anyone. I shall definitely be booking El Oasis next year as having the breeze is lovely!! They are just super and the best holiday we have ever had – thank you for all your organization and attention to details. Also a very big thank you to Bob & Suzanne who are just so welcoming, helpful and accommodating for all our needs They were waiting for us at the apartment with a warm welcome when we arrived – no hanging around or chasing round estate agents for keys!!

Both Apartments – 20 June, 2008

Hi Kay,

It was fantastic!! 13 years since we were here at Playa Pariso the last time; but it feels like yesterday. We love this place, your apartments, the pool, the beach, the surroundings are just fabulous. Really, all 11 of us have had a wonderful week.
The weather was lovely, warm and sunny the whole week – an idea time to come.

During this week we have visited some of our favourite places; like Rhonda, Casares, Gibraltar. These apartments are really fantastic – they have “everything”, and we hope to come back again next year.

Very best regards to you from Berit & the entire family from Sweden.

PS – We walked to other small beach 800 mtrs away – it was very nice.

Dear Kay

What a lovely apartment!! Very well equipped; both in terms of quality & quantity – “lots of little extras that you don’t get in your average holiday home”. Weather was mixed, but it is April.

Good eateries – kids loved the Straw Donkey in Puerto Duquesa. Great shack at end of beach down below here, plus the one by the big Children’s Play area at Sabinillas.

All in all we had a great adventure.. Ken, Karen, Kristin, Ross & Duncan Ken, Bristol, UK – April, 2008-10-12

Dear Kay, A very comfortable week here – it suited our needs extremely well. Everything “spot on”, and thanks for all your help & advice. Malcolm & Pam Maunder

Dear Kay

We had a lovely week in your apartment. Sun every day. Fantastic dinner at La Pergola in Puerto de la Duquesa, bit expensive, but well worth it. Soren, Denmark

6th October, 2007
Dear Kay

Thank you for letting us stay in your apartment – it was lovely and the view was breathtaking. The pool was refreshing and we went there at least once a day. We went to the beach and swam, we even seen quite a lot of fish. We had a lovely drive to Rhonda and saw the Moorish Palace – well worth a visit. Tuesday it looked a bit rainy so we went to Gibraltar. We walked half way up the Rock and saw lots of the Barbrian Apes (cute, but naughty little things!).

Thanks again. Charles, Fran, Alexandra & Kirsty (Bristol, UK).

18th November, 2007
Kay, we had a super time, thank you. Didn’t go out as much as we had intended to, as we spent a lot of time at the Golf Course with our son. Enjoyed Duquesa and it’s restaurants. Rhonda was also very interesting – I hope we will come again soon. Steve & Lynn

Dear Kay, Just to say a very big thank you for letting us stay in your beautiful apartment for our long weekend break. We found everything very comfortable; it was just like being at home. We absolutely loved your gorgeous terrace with the sea views. You have furnished and equipped it so well; no wonder you get loads of bookings. We also fell in love with Jane & Derrick’s apartment upstairs with the fantastic sea views, and the lovely terrace off the kitchen – “great for catching the late afternoon sun”!! It took us just over 5 hours with one short stop, 484 kms. Your directions were good too. We went straight to your apartment without any problems. Again, very many thanks, much appreciated. Regards, Barbara and Paul xxx

Hi Kay
Just a note to say thank you for letting us rent your wonderful apartment last week - you should be very proud to own such a place, it is a real home from home and you have obviously paid a lot of attention to detail.
Vic and Lin were very helpful, Vic gave us a lift into Duquesa one evening and I've got some post for you. Do you want me to send it to you at work or would you prefer it to go to your home address? If it's the latter, you'll have to let me know what it is.
I have taken some photos (a good one of the awning) and as soon as I have time I will forward it on to you.
Everyone has asked me to say how much they enjoyed themselves and to thank you for giving us the opportunity. I will definitely have no hesitation in recommending the apartment to anyone.
Talk to you soon. Stella

I have just returned from a 10-day stay in your apartment, and must firstly let you know how much we enjoyed our stay, and how first class your apartment is. So much so that I would like to enquire whether the apartment is available for let from the 22/23 October 2005, which is the October half-term, for one week. If available then the Saturday to Saturday option would suit better, but if you could let me know I would be really grateful.
Thank you in advance for your prompt reply.

Hi Kay,
I'm really sorry that I haven't been in touch sooner, I've been really busy, and time flies which doesn't help.
We had a really nice time in the apartment, it really was a very nice place to stay.
I hope we didn't leave it too messy, I know Lin had a quick turnover to get on with. And I hope we didn't put you off taking families with young children... Nicholas was very careful and helped my friend water the plants, but the fingerprints on your glass tops were probably his!
We will definitely be in touch if we decide to go back at some point, we were very comfortable.
I hope you are well, and your Spanish coming on nicely!
Best regards, Soledad

Dear Kay
Thanks for the extra couple of nights at La Poloma. It was generous of you.
We very much enjoyed our time in your apartment. The views from the patio are just stunning. I enjoyed many hours quietly reading, observing the blue sea, and watching the boats go up and down the coast. Vic and Lyn were most helpful as were your information folders.
Gibraltar was a particular hit with us. We visited Gibraltar twice because we were so impressed with it. A very interesting place full of history and interesting walks. (Australians, of course, read novels where Gibraltar in often mentioned, but it is normally hopelessly far away.) Only 20 minutes easy drive from your apartment - very nice!
Feel free to put my comments on your website. Cheers and thank you again

Thank you for your email. Had a really good trip but pleased to get home for a rest. The children were not impressed with a shopping holiday! Though they thoroughly enjoyed your pool, especially with wet suits on, they were in the pool for hours.
Apologies for the cup. Nothing broken until the last evening at 11.45 pm.
I will hopefully send the package Sat or Mon (This very kind customer bought back the items left behind by the Sarah & family (our previous clients) and posted it back to them in the UK). No need to refund the postage.
Your apartment was lovely. It must have taken you quite a while to fully furnish it
Many thanks. Bye for now.

Dear Kay
We have just got back from our week at La Paloma. It was great and we all really enjoyed it. Sadly the weather was not that good but the last 2 days were stunning. The apartment is fabulous - kitted out to such a high standard and extremely comfortable. It has everything one needs and such good quality too.
My step-daughter may have left a white lacy top somewhere (we are not sure where as we did a very thorough check on leaving) but it may have got hidden by beach towels on the terrace or wrapped up in laundry when we stripped the beds. If Lin does come across it we would be very grateful if she could post it to us as it is Olivia's favourite top!
Thank you very much again for letting us rent the apartment - we will certainly recommend it to others and would be happy to give any reference to others who are interested in it. We even all had a swim yesterday and the 2 young boys went in most days! Kind regards,
