About the property

Large 3 Bed Villa in Anfi Tauro Zafiro, Recently Re-decorated for Owner Living

This large, 3 bedroom villa is the most spectacular in the popular Anfi Tauro complex set in the quiet and idyllic Tauro valley.

Imagine waking up to the sounds of tweeting birds as the sun rises over the golf course beside the villa. Take a dip in the private heated swimming pool then relax in the beautiful garden with uninterrupted views of the sea. When you are up for it, brew some coffee and have breakfast in the garden. Plenty of time for golfing or sunbathing.

The unique beauty of Villa Carmela is it is the closest villa to the sea in the whole complex and is not overlooked so offers uninterrupted views and complete privacy.

The garden gets the sun almost for the entire day so if sun worship is your goal it is perfect. However, if you prefer the shade we have plenty of outdoor space that is covered and shady. You will find fantastic uninterrupted views over the Atlantic ocean and the 2nd green of the golf course.

Why not pick some fresh mint from our small organic garden and enjoy fresh mint tea from the terrace while watching the boats sail up and down the coast. Don't worry there should be plenty of mint left over to enjoy cocktails later in the evening.

By the way, kids are welcome to pick mandarin oranges from the fruit trees (when ripe) and we also have organic lemon and lime trees which we encourage you to enjoy.

We provide free Wi-Fi internet access and we have a media box that provides all UK and Scandinavian TV channels.

There are large picture windows and full length sliding doors that afford exceptional sea and golf views from inside the property.

There is a stunning garden with a webber gas BBQ, a private heated pool and an outside shower....

New air-conditioning recently installed throughout villa including a "quiet" mode for sleeping. The whole villa has recently been upgraded and refurbished at substantial cost so it really is the best villa in Anfi Tauro.

In the master ensuite bathroom there is also a fantastic jacuzzi bath so you can really relax and get into holiday mode.

Highest quality comfortable bedding and mattresses so you can fully relax and enjoy a great nights sleep.

The complex also has 2 common heated swimming pools which guests have access to.

There is also a large supermarket and a nice grill restaurant next door. They are well renowned for their BBQ's..

Anfi Tauro is the perfect place to kick back and relax with family and friends.

It is perfect for families and we can provide baby cot, high chair and push buggy for the kids :-)

It's located at the end of the row so in the best possible location. It offers fantasitc views of the sea and the golf course with complete privacy,

What makes this villa unique

Situated in the up-market and exclusive Anfi Tauro resort, we have recently renovated the villa as we will be spending more time there ourselves over the coming years.

When we are not staying there, it's available to rent but we ask all our guests to treat the villa like your own home :-)

Fantastic relaxing location, you will not want to leave

  • 5 of 5

Location was the best in the complex and area was very quiet overlooking the golf course with views of the sea. 5mins drive to Amadores beach which is one of the best beaches in the island as it is protected with great facilities and plenty of parking. From here you can walk to Puerto Rico beach great to do early in the morning when it's cooler. The SPAR is close and well stocked with items you will recognise from UK.

The villa was bright modern. Very clean and of a high standard with all facilities you would need and more. Very spacious rooms with en suite.

Pool was very warm and clean, my kids were in there all the time. They also enjoyed reading the books they found in the rooms.

Gerard kept in touch regularly and was efficient in dealing with any questions and queries we raised. The best relaxing holiday. Catering for 3 generations in one villa. The golf course is beautiful. The TV has channels to keep everyone entertained but we spent most of our time relaxing in the pool and garden. My father is already thinking of when he can come back.

An excellent place to be in February

  • 5 of 5

This is a splendid villa, very advantageously situated. It lives up in practice to the description online, and was in no way disappointing therefore. There are coastal walks nearby, a sandy beach within ten minutes walk and a good restaurant close at hand, the Tauro grill (try the steaks and the padron peppers).

What made this venue stand out in my opinion, from some of the other places that we have rented over the last decade was the amount of assistance and non-intrusive guidance that we received. For example the description of the route to the villa from the airport was so clear and precise that it enabled me to find it without hesitation. And that was driving a hire car from the airport in the dark! Ger always answered any query we had before the trip very quickly, and was on hand at arrival and departure to provide any help needed. Added to that there was a handbook which answered any question I could think of with regard to activities, shops restaurants and excursions. Everything was done to make a success of our stay. Thank you.

Owner's Response: Richard Delighted that you enjoyed your stay in Villa Carmela so much. It was a pleasure to meet you and I enjoyed our chat. Thanks for the very kind words about me in the review - it is really appreciated. I do put a lot of effort into making this a great place to stay so that guests can relax and enjoy their holidays. After all, they're probably working hard for most of the year in bad weather whereas I am stuck here in the sun all year round LOL ;-) So it's only fair. The handbook is something that I started years ago and now that I am resident in Gran Canaria I am adding to it all the time. I'm finding some amazing places to explore on the island and off the beaten track. Gran Canaria has SO MUCH MORE than just sand and beaches. I hope to welcome you back again soon. Thanks again, Ger

Luxury Villa - Luxury Stay!

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful 3 bed, 3 bathroom Villa, with what I would say is the best position on the site. Private with great views. Loads of room inside for six adults. Huge open plan living room and very well fitted kitchen. Huge bedrooms with a jacuzzi in one of them. Double sinks in all of them with the best shower I've had in ages - as powerful as you want.

Sliding doors to the garden area with good garden furniture and a good sized plunge pool.

Great communication from the owner throughout our booking and during our stay.

A very well stocked Spar shop 5 minutes walk away - freshly baked bread every day. We didn't even bother with a larger supermarket as it also had a great drinks selection and all at really good prices. The Tauro Grill next door to the shop served amazing food. If you order the Bullock Chop, prepare to be amazed! BBQ'd to perfection.

Villa Carmella is totally and highly recommended. Best villa my wife and I, along with our friends, have ever stayed in. A holiday break in style!

Owner's Response: Mark Wow - fantastic review - very much appreciated. Delighted to hear that you enjoyed your stay. I couldn't have written a better review myself and was even thinking to employ you to write our listing advert! My favourite in Tauro Grill is the mixed kebab BBQ style and there is a great atmosphere there. Hope to welcome you back again soon. Regards, Ger

Great villa, just what we needed

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here in mid October 2017 and loved it. The villa is great, very spacious living area and kitchen. The villa has so much to offer. Our family had five adults and two children (aged 6 and 4). Despite having seven of us staying at the villa there was plenty of space. The pictures provided on the site are a true reflection of the villa. The amenities at the villa are really good, just like a home from home. Lots of different crockery and kitchen utensils if you want to cook.

Ger is great in both the lead up to your stay and also during your stay. A lot of thought has been given to make your stay enjoyable and easy. Lovely touch to arrive with some milk and a few other groceries waiting in the fridge for us.

The kids loved the pool and it is heated and warm. They also loved the crazy golf by Amadores beach. Villa is in good location and Puerto Mogán is lovely for dinner with lots of options of restaurants.

Highly recommended. Thanks Ger.

Owner's Response: Ann Marie Thanks for the brilliant 5 star review and happy to hear that you all enjoyed your stay :-) We've put a lot of effort into getting the villa ready for rentals and do spend a lot of time in the villa ourselves so it is really as you say - a home from home. Hope to welcome you back soon. Regards, Ger

Great accommodation, would happily recommend to others

  • 5 of 5

The accommodation was everything it promised in the ad, it was very well looked after, well equipped throughout, and we had a fantastic stay at this villa.

Gerard was extremely helpful throughout our booking and during our stay here, nothing was too much trouble.

The local are had some great restaurants, all easy to get too. You do need a car to see the area but easy to get around on good roads.

If you like golf it's very convenient too. A great view down to the sea from the garden made it very private and not overlooked in any way.

Overall a great property which I would happily recommend to others.

Thank you for a great holiday!

Tauro is based in the middle of the municipality of Mogan , which is primarily dedicated to tourism.

The main six tourist areas are all within a short drive and comprise Arguineguin, Patalavaca, Anfi del Mar, Puerto Rico, Amadores, Tauro, Playa del Curator, Taurito and Puerto de Mogan,

They all feature a range of restaurants and bars along the avenues and walkways that lead to the end of the beaches.

Amadores beach with its 5 star beach club is less than 5 minutes from the 19th villa.


Las Palmas is the closest airport - about 40 minutes drive away. We can arrange airport collection but most people opt to rent a car from the airport.


1 minute walk to the local Spar supermarket (fully stocked) and Tauro Grill restaurant.

Further Details:

Perfect for families looking to relax and unwind. Plenty of space in the private garden for the children.

Last villa in the row which gives uninterrupted views of the beach with amazing sunsets.
