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 Benalmádena

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.

Perfect holiday!

  • 5 of 5

We have enjoyed a wonderful holiday staying in Ann's beautiful apartment. The location is perfect, everywhere we wanted to visit was within walking distance, the beach, Selwo Marina, the cable car ride at Tivoli, beautiful Paloma park and the many shops and restaurants! The complex is immaculate and the pool set in the lovely gardens is great. The apartment was spotless, comfortable and had everything we needed, we will definitely return. Thank you Ann!

A well located apartment

  • 4 of 5

The apartment has everything you need and is very cosy. You can take bus 103 just outside or walk to a number of other buses and the train station. You get a good night´s sleep as the bedroom is very quiet. The kitchen is well equipped, too. The terrass is big and sunny. We did not use the roof terrass as it was windy and we had quite a few rain showers.

Relaxing break. Fab location near bars & restaurants. Lovely terraces. Easy parking

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely relaxing break. The apartment was a great base for us. We hired a car and the location was within 15 minutes of the airport. Easy parking directly outside. Ideal location near restaurants and bars and within walking distance of beach.

An absolute gem of an apartment - everything you need within walking distance

  • 5 of 5

We have booked through Owners Direct for the last 12 years - and this is one of the best apartments we have stayed in. The apartment has everything you could need - including 2 shopping trolleys and a PVC apron! The outside space is wonderful - we loved eating breakfast outside in the mornings. The terrace overlooks the pool so we could keep an eye on our girls. We had to accommodate our sleep-loving teenager and our energetic 9 year old - so the pool meant the 9 year old could play in the pool and her sister could sleep in, in the mornings. We got the train from Malaga airport and it was an easy walk downhill to the apartment. We got around Aroyo de Miel and Benalmadena on foot - we mostly ate in Arroya de Miel in the evenings and it was very good value. We went to Malaga twice on the train to visit museums and the Alcazabar, and we took the train to Fuengirola to visit the Bioparc - a really lovely small zoo about 10 minutes walk from the train station. We were pleasantly surprised at how most of the holiday makers in Arroya were Spanish - there were more sports bars and English Cafe's in the area north of the marina. We would love to come back in 2019 and do some more exploring. We would highly recommend this apartment to families looking for a bit of everything - pool, beach, restaurants and a great base for exploring the Costa del Sol.

Owner's Response: I am so pleased my guests enjoy my apartment and the marvellous area which has everything both to see and do, you can travel further afield if you wish as there is both rail and bus trips to various places. But there is no need to go further if all you want is sun, sea and sangria as the old saying go's. Happy Holidays

Lovely apartment in the perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Great week spent in the apartment which had everything we could possibly want. With 2 beautiful terraces big enough to eat and relax. The swimming pool has been recently renovated and was a pleasant surprise. Very easy to access from Malaga Airport by train and a short walk downhill to the apartment. Looking forward to my next stay.
