About the Owner

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.

A perfect find!

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.

Perfect home from home

  • 5 of 5

Have just booked again after a lovely stay last year.

The apartment has everything you need and more. The balcony is fantastic for sunbathing and dining. Easy walk to Arroyo for all the tapas bars and just as easy to the beach. Can't wait to return.

Everything you could possibly need was there (including the weather we were blessed with during the last week of March!) Spacious terraces to lounge about in the sun (with proper loungers and cushions :) great size TV for night time and the comfiest bed I ever slept in! Not to mention the location - right near my favourite place in the world (Paloma Park) and walking distance to just about everywhere we wanted to go :) No need to bring a load of books with you either - a good paperback library was provided as well for your ultimate sun-lounging experience :) We will be back for definite, cheers Ann for a marvellous stay :)

A family fun filled holiday!

  • 5 of 5

We have recently returned from a fantastic family holiday in Benalmadena. The apartment was central to Arroya de Miel, and the beach and walking distance to all restaurants and amenities. We didn't need to hire a car to get about, we relied on the buses and trains which were cheap and stress free. The apartment is really well equipped with everything you could need and has a lovely pool in well kept gardens. We travelled with a 3 and 6 year old and they loved the pool and beach. It is up 3 flights of stairs and up a steep hill from the beach, but apart from when our 3 year old fell asleep in the buggy, this wasn't a problem for us, however something to consider if you are not fully mobile. A lovely place to stay and Ann the owner provided lots of information and an efficient service. We are planning to return again next year hopefully!!
