About Ann Lisle

A little bit about me!

My late husband and I bought this apartment in 1997, after previously selling a smaller one in the same area. We and our family loved the area so much we spent our holidays there for nearly 30 years. However I lost my husband some years ago and due to ill health cannot travel as much as I would like to.

I have this beautiful second home, it is a shame for it not be used, so I was recommended to holiday let it, and let more people have all the benefits of sunny Spain.

If you require any further information, please don't hesitate to contact me.

regards, Ann.

Why Ann Lisle chose West Costa del Sol

We love this area, because you have everything to hand, and we have never grew tired of the same place.

What makes this apartment unique

As I used this as my second home for my family and I, it is like a home from home. I hope you like it as much as we all do.

Another perfect stay

  • 5 of 5

Second stay was just as good as the first. Comfortable, spacious, home from home with everything you need provided. Excellent location for beachfront, park and all the Spanish restaurants and tapas bars. Walkable from the train station which makes for an easy transfer from the airport.

Have already booked again for next year.

Thanks Ann for another lovely stay.

Owner's Response: Another happy client enjoying what Benalmadena Costa has to offer this is why we purchased property there in 1982 and still love this area, it is so central for everything and travel is so easy. which is why people intend to return year after year.

Home from home.

  • 5 of 5

Great apartment, and the owner,Ann Lisle has thought of everything you need for a wonderful stay. Lots of info left for us, and we couldn't find a thing wrong. Huge quiet outside space, and well equipped inside.Felt very safe in the property. Arroya del Miel is a beautiful old village, just a short walk from Benalmedena, and within train, bus or walking distance to other parts of the coast.would highly recommend, as it was so lovely.

A huge Thank you to Ann, allowing us to share her lovely home.

A perfect find!

  • 5 of 5

Lovely spacious apartment. A home away from

Home. There isn't anything Ann hasn't thought of. Very comfortable and with two bathrooms comfortably accommodated 4 adults with no queuing for the bathroom. The air conditioning was a godsend as temperatures reached 38/39C.

This apartment is very good value and in a very good position. One of the best I have stayed in.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment fully lived up to its billing and would most certainly book it again.It met all our needs and more.It made for a very relaxing holiday although at times the weather was very warm the apartments air conditioning made it bearable.It is good place for getting about for other places on the Costa del Sol either by train, boat , bus or even walking if the sun is not too fierce.
