Overview

Gran Canaria Villa Rental Photos and Description

3 bed Villa in exclusive Anfi Tauro, Gran Canaria, Decorated For Owner Living This Villa Is Spacious, Private And Comfortable

This large, 3 bedroom villa is the most spectacular in the popular Anfi Tauro complex 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 salt water swimming pool then relax in the hot-tub. We just installed a brand new hot tub in March 2016. When you are up for it, brew some coffee and have breakfast in the garden. Plenty of time for golfing or sunbathing.

The lush tropical garden has sun all day, sun loungers and a private heated swimming pool with salt water (no chemicals). In the garden there is also a built-in charcoal BBQ in addition to a separate gas BBQ and a practical sink for outdoor cooking. This bungalow offers complete privacy in the back garden with views to the golf course and Atlantic Ocean. The complex also has a common heated salt water swimming pool, a practical supermarket and a nice grill restaurant nearby.

The villa is very well kept and equipped and has 3 double bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a guest toilet.

All three large bedrooms have plenty of closet space and a private terrace garden door with direct access to the immaculate private gardens. Master bedroom has its own private ensuite bathroom with separate shower room, bathroom and toilet.

All bedrooms are interconnected so ease of access is especially convenient for families.

The kitchen is fully equipped and the big living room has comfortable lounge with TV and many international TV channels (SKY - TV). There is a big dining table both inside and outside.

It's a perfect place to kick back and relax with family and friends.

We have been very successful renting out this villa and have recently purchased a second villa in the same complex so even if this villa is not available, maybe the other villa will be.

We get excellent reviews and as a Project Manager by profession everything is well organised and well planned - taking all the stress out of it so you can just relax and enjoy your well earned break.

About Gerard O'Reilly

I live in Yasothon, in the North-East of Thailand and manage a number of properties in the Cha-am area.

I came to Thailand in 2001 as an Expat and most recently have been working in the rice fields up North and opened a new restaurant in Yasothon province.

I lived in Cha-am for a year in my beach villa and can share some of the local insights. I regularly take trips to ensure the villa is kept in the best condition!

My Father owns a villa in Gran Canaria and I look after the rentals for him too. He spends almost 6 months a year in the villa and the rest of the time its available to rent. It's kept in excellent condition and is a great place to relax and unwind.

Gerard O'Reilly purchased this villa in 2000

Why Gerard O'Reilly chose Gran Canaria

Great location, on golf course and within easy walking distance to the beach. We get fantastic reviews and most of our guests are repeat visitors. The biggest problem we have is getting people to leave :-)

Also, things have been going so well we have purchased a second villa in Anfi Tauro so if this villa is not available maybe the other villa will be. Get in touch to find out.

What makes this villa unique

The best of everything.... including private heated and salt water pool and separate hot tub. We just installed a new hot tub in March 2016 at great expense. Relax in complete privacy.

The private garden is stunning and is really private. You can get the sun almost the entire day but there is also plenty of shade if you want to escape the heat ;-)

Ideal for disabled guests - wonderful villa

  • 5 of 5

We have a 26 year old daughter with limited mobility and found this villa to be perfect for her.

No steps, very wide doors, plenty of space etc etc.

The pool is great, the hot tub a lot of fun.

It is on a complex with everything you need - a good restaurant with friendly staff and a supermarket.

It is also ideally located for the busy Maspalomas and the beautiful Puerto Mogan.

But the stars are for Gerard who managed to get the villa sorted for us with absolutely no notice.

Owner's Response: Philip Thanks for the fantastic review but I cannot take all the credit. Senor Rachid and his wife got the place ready for you guys at last minute notice so credit goes to them!! We're so lucky to have such good support on the ground at the villa all year round! We've had a number of guests with limited mobility and they have all praised the villa and area for ease of access which is great to hear! Hope you come back to visit again next year. Ger

Villa review

  • 4 of 5

Villa spacious and well equipped, lovely plunge pool and plenty of outside space for sunbathing. Lovely location overlooking the golf course with views of the sea. You do need to hire a car as there is only a small beach at Tauro which is currently being developed. Facilities on site are good with comparable supermarket prices, a lovely pool which was always empty when we used it and a restaurant offering good pizzas. Lovely beach very near at Amadores Beach and Mogan a lovely village not far up the coast.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the fantastic review and I am happy to hear that you enjoyed your holiday. We do highly recommend a car but many of our guests have also just used taxis without any problem. I agree with your recommendations for Amadores and Puerto de Mogan - both well worth visiting. Ger

Comfortable villa for golfers and families

  • 5 of 5

The villa is perfectly equipped and has some advantages compare to the others in the same location - the pool is heatedby a solar system and there is also s brand new hot tub for tired golfers. Nice kitchen, garden grill, 3 spacious bedrooms. Restaurant and small supermarket just 2 min walk. Local golf course one of the best

Nice place for naturists or other who want privacy

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in this house for ten days together with four ladies. All of us are naturists and we were looking for a house where we could be naked in the garden without disturbing any neighbours. In that sense this villa was perfect for us. Both inside the house and out in the secluded garden you have complete privacy. You can relax on the sunbeds or take a dip in the pool without anyone watching you.

All the rooms are quite big with plenty of space for 5-7 people. The kitchen is equipped with necessary utensils so you can easily prepare all your meals here, and you can eat inside in the living room or outside in the garden.

Unless you play golf there is not much to do in Tauro except relaxing. I would therefore recommend renting a car. There is parking for one car just outside the entrance door.

On the negative side I would like to mention a couple of things where the expectations were not met (can easily be fixed by changing the text in the advertisement and not giving people false expectations):

- The information about the villa mentions a roof top terrace. This was closed off when we used the house and could not be used. It looked like the closing was permanent, so don't count on using that one.

- It is also worth mentioning that the hot tub is for two people only. No family party there.

- It is said that there is a jet stream in the pool so you can swin as in a large pool. This is not true. Yes, there is a jet stream but it is so weak and poor that you hardly notice it. Apart from that the pool is OK.

All in all we really enjoyed staying in this villa, mostly because of the privacy but also because it is nice and spacious.

Owner's Response: Johnny, Thanks for the 5 star review and delighted to hear that you and your group enjoyed your stay in our villa. Glad that the privacy suited your needs and you will be happy to hear that we have just purchased a brand new hot tub which accommodates 3 people at a time. Just a few points on what you mentioned as I hope it will help future guests as they are reading the reviews: Actually, 2 cars can park directly outside the villa. We park 2 cars when we stay there. Yes, there are stairs to the roof terrace but due to safety issues we have had to close off access. I will remove this from the property details - thanks for pointing it out. There is a jet stream in the heated pool and when I'm there I use it to swim against the current but I'm not a very good swimmer :-) Maybe you're a strong swimmer so probably not strong enough for you. But after you mentioned this in your review we checked the pump and indeed it was not working at full capacity - which we have already fixed. Note there is also a much larger communal pool just 2 minutes walk from the villa . Hope the above addresses your issues and I hope you agree that they are only small minor things which we have or are addressing and that the overall experience is great - peaceful and relaxing. Regards Ger

Lovely villa in quiet area

  • 5 of 5

We had a really nice family holiday.

There was loads of room for all of us and the garden, pool and hot tub were great.

We loved cooking on the BBQ's. Having Spar shop nearby was very convenient. We'll be back.

Tauro
Car: recommended

Coast/Beach:

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.

Travel:

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.

Distances:

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.

Located beside 1st fairway its great for a golfing holiday.
