Just had a short 4 day stay in this villa. This was our first visit to this villa and wasn’t disappointed. Once again we were met promptly by senor rachid who showed ya round and made us feel very welcome. The villa is spacious and very private, clean and everything you can think you need is available. 1st time also in the hot tub which feels very strange to me with just a pair of shorts on at 11pm under the stars with a beer in hand, but shouldn’t grumble. Perfect for family’s with children also who can just dip in the private pool. All in all a very pleasant experience yet again. We’ll be back again stopping in this or one of the owners other properties as this is how holidays should feel. ***** all the way, thx again Gerard.
This is the 2nd visit to Villa 19 Anfi Tauro, and it was as good as ever. The Villa is in such a perfect location, extremely quiet, no road noise, and very private. It’s location is the 2nd line in relation to the Golf course, but you still have the spectacular views, of the golf course, down to the sea.
We particularly enjoyed having an early morning coffee on the raised deck area, watching the morning golfers tee off on the 1st tee.
A new benefit is the newly formed Tauro sandy beach, although the walking to the beach leads much to be desired, but it’s well worth it as the sea swimming is great and the imported Moroccan sand beach is great for sunbathing.
The Tauro Grill, just a stroll away is ideal if you don’t want to venture far, bbq specials are a must, and the local Spar shop on the complex is so well stocked with fresh provisions, you don’t need to venture far.
We have enjoyed two holidays at Villa 19 and can’t wait to rebook again. The weather in November was 28 degrees in the day and around 18 degrees at night. Perfect if you want to escape our winter chills.
Absolutely stunning villa with with all the equipment you will need. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and looking forward to returning there. The location is ideal as you are literally two minutes walk from the local spar and restaurant and a five minute taxi ride to Puerto Rico town. No need to hire a car as the taxi fares are so inexpensive and efficient. Beautiful places to explore in Puerto Rico before heading back to chill out in the pool or hot tub. Highly recommend this villa as you'll feel like a celebrity staying here.
This was our second time here and we will be back again, the villa is perfect for a quite get away holiday.
There is a restaurant/bar and a shop on site, and several other superb restaurants all with in a very short drive. It was nice to meet the owner (Ger) who was very helpful and accommodating. At the time of leaving we were informed Ryan-air may cancel our flight.... But unfortunitly they did not, so may be next year we will just book for longer. Thank you Ger See you again.
Very highly recommended
What can I say about this truly wonderful villa (19th Villa, Anfi Tauro).
Firstly, a comment on the the owner. Gerard is such a kind hearted and lovely man, nothing was too much trouble for him. If we needed anything, he was only a phone call away. He was always happy to help.
This was our first holiday abroad as a family and staying at this villa was very special indeed. The local beach in Amadores is very beautiful with all its bars and shops and only took about ten minutes to walk or two minutes to drive.
The first few days were mainly spent in the private heated salt water pool and hot tub! Our children, (15yrs,13yrs and 8yrs) couldn't get enough of the water. Our youngest actually learnt to swim in the villas pool!
This place has everything you need for a self catering holiday, from dishwasher to music/tv system and washing machine to hairdryers (I believe we found three lol!)
There is air conditioning in all the bedrooms and plenty of fans in the living/dining room. It has a generous open plan layout with large patio doors that run the length of the property.
The garden has its own palm tree with beautiful flowers and plants growing around the boarders. On occasions we saw small lizards going about their daily business in the shrubbery and some quite large butterflies flying over the flowers. The children especially enjoyed seeing them.
If you need any essentials, then there is a spar shop about a minutes walk from the front door. There is also a bar/grill and a good sized communal pool next to the shop. The pool is only for the owners and guests of the villas. There are plenty of comfortable sun loungers around the pool, including a table tennis and snooker table.
There is so much to see and do in Gran Canaria, we were there two weeks and that still wasn't long enough. We would definitely recommend hiring a car in order to explore the Island. The highlight of our holiday was an excursion to the summit (well almost summit) to see the stars. We booked an astronomy workshop with the company AstroGC. They picked us up by minibus in the evening and took us up the mountain via some hair raising roads with some very tight hairpin corners. If you suffer with travel sickness, then a good dose of meds before you go would be beneficial. Also wear warm clothes as it's quite nippy up there in the night. When the sun goes down the stars come out and there a quite a few of them!
We would highly recommend the 19th villa in Anfi Tauro ( there is a walk through video on YouTube) and would love to return one day soon.
If you want privacy, peace and quiet. A beautiful villa that's large enough for up to seven people within stunning surroundings ( the complex backs onto a championship golf course) then this villa is for you. Gerard also has other villas if the 19th is booked up. You can also see walk through videos of these on YouTube.
Back for the 2nd time - will book a 3rd.
Villa ideal for my extended family - disabled daughter and 8 month old Grandaughter. Large rooms, all on one level, lovely pool, jacuzzi and hot tub and just about everything else you need.Quiet and peaceful location but just a short distance from great restaurants - and a short drive to fabulous Puerto Mogan.
Gerard always helpful - even when given no notice at all. Thanks Ger.
Well looked after by Senor Rachid - especially when we locked ourselves out! Got us a superb shower chair for my daughter.
I cant recommend this villa highly enough.
Excellent villa for our family (7 adults) to relax and unwind.
Good beaches, restaurants and golf all on your doorstep, with many other facilities a short drive (rented car) away.
Would return with family or friends.
