Peaceful Location, lovely sea view and sunset at 10 -15 Minutes Walk To The Beach, shops, taxi and bus stop
This bright apartment is situated in Playa de Taurito (50-55 km from the airport) which is the last bay before Puerto de Mogan, the small town that is very much liked by everyone because of its canals, bridges, harbour and restaurants.
Taurito is in the middle of the Southwest coast of Gran Canaria which guarantees you the best weather of the whole island.
From the terraces you enjoy magnificent views of the sea which is about 200m from the apartment (bird's-eye view).
At night you can even hear the sea from the terraces as well as from inside your bedrooms.
Due to its location you can enjoy the sun fully and directly from noon till the beautiful sunset. Both of the terraces have awnings for those who prefer the shade.
When you want to sunbathe in the morning, you can either go to the beach where you get the sun very early or you can go to the pool terrace of the complex. The pool is not heated and divided in 2 parts: one part is for adults and one part for kids. There are enough sun loungers at the pool and also some umbrellas.
The apartment itself is going to be completely refurbished and in order beginning of July 2016.
There is a fully equipped open kitchen ( 4 hob, oven, microwave, dishwasher, huge fridge-freezer) with plenty of utensils, pots, pans and anything you need. The bathroom contains a shower, sink, toilet, a washing machine as well as tumble dryer.
All of the linen you need for the beds and all the towels you need (bathing as well as tea towels and beach towels) are available for you. We also provide cleaning material, if you should want to clean in between your arrival and departure. Upon demand an extra cleaning in between is possible too.
In the master bedroom you find a boxspring (160 x 200cm) with lots of wardrobe space and a sliding door towards the small terrace. Here you find a table and 4 chairs + chair to relax.
In the other bedroom you find 2 boxsprings, each 90 cm, that can easily be put together and it's own wardrobe and dresser. Both bedrooms have seaview and their own airco unit. There are no neighbors next to the bedrooms, so a good night rest is assured.
The appartment has a TV, DVD player and internet (WiFi).
There’s a table with 4 chairs inside for those few occasions people would like to eat or sit at a table inside, cause on the big terrace (24 sqm), where you’ll probably spend most of your time, you’ll find a table and chairs for up to 4 people.
Furthermore, there are 2 sun loungers on this terrace as well.
The complex offers nice gardens and views from everywhere, free Wi-Fi at the reception area as well...internet access is fully guaranteed this way....
There's also a shop (open daily from 7.30 am till 10 pm), pool bar and restaurant on site.The latter are available from October till Easter)
You can enter the complex by stairs or by a ramp and in the building there are elevators, so you are sure not to be forced to climb stairs in the complex with a trolley, buggy or old knees... ;-)
When you leave the complex and go to the right, you have a walk of nearly 10 minutes to go down to the roundabout. Here you’ll find taxi’s and the bus stop.
From the roundabout you also enter the resort of Taurito where you find tennis courts as well as mini-golf, a game hall, a few shops (including one where you can rent a car), a hairdresser, a supermarket (Spar), a few restaurants (in hotels), a huge water park and at the end of the resort you’ll find the small but very nice natural beach with plenty of water sports (3 diving schools, jet-ski, parasailing, banana boat,...) and you’ll also find a few restaurants & bars right on the beach as well...
If you want to, you can get sun loungers and sun-shade (9 € for 2 sun loungers + umbrella for a whole day) and there’s always a lifeguard at the beach.
Staying in this apartment and area guarantees you a nice holiday with a lovely sea view and with everything at hand in less than a 15 min walk.
If you want to go to a huge supermarket though with lots of fruits, veggies and meat, you can go to the Spar or Hiperdino in Puerto de Mogan (5 km) where you can even have your purchases delivered and put everything in our huge fridge freezer afterwards. Puerto de Mogan is also nice for an outdoor dinner and/or to walk around the canals and the harbour (you can also see part of this harbour from the terrace of our apartment).
If you really want to see crowds or you fancy a dance in a disco you can go to the other direction and head for Puerto Rico (9,5 km). There are lots of restaurants and bar as well.
On your way to Puerto Rico you might see a huge white beach with Caribbean blue water...that's Amadores, nice for a swim and/or a nice lunch or dinner too...
Going to Puerto de Mogan or Puerto Rico by bus will only cost you € 1,40/ person...
This apartment offers you peace, which is hard to find nearby the sea and although you enjoy the lovely views and sunsets from this quiet place, everything you might need is close by...
A true place to relax all year long, cause min temperature is still more than 20° in winter (more than 68°F)
Top Traveller Review
I knew this was supposed to be something special for the 2 of you...therefore I'm glad you think our apartment was amazing and that our view is one to die for.
It can only have helped to make this holiday a real second honeymoon :-)
I feel it's my duty to help out, before as well as during someone's stay, so when a problem occurs (as possible on every destination) even though it's got nothing to do with our property, I'm glad being able to support and give some help.
It's just that tiny little something that makes all the difference and it shows that even when you're renting from an owner directly, you're not on your own... I'm just 1 call or email away...
Looking forward for that return in the future,
About the Owner
Due to health issues I started to go to Gran Canaria several times a year since the 90's, so I rented a lot of apartments myself. Mostly they had a small terrace or only a kitchenette or just partial seaview, so there always seemed to be something missing.
We decided to look for a place of our own to make sure that everything we need for a comfortable stay was provided.
After a long search I found this place in 2011 and immediately fell in love with the terraces and the view.
We bought a 1 bedroom apartment and had it totally refurbished, got A/C & WiFi and so it became a real home from home :-)
Now, 5 years later, our 2 children are getting older and want to take friends with them as well, so we needed a bigger place to stay and were very happy to buy this extra apartment (a special one :-)) in the same building.
Since I'm a nurse I love to take care of people and I try to do as much as possible to guarantee that our tenants have a lovely holiday, I only ask them to take good care of our 2nd home that we share with them...
Guestbook comments from the owner
Megan (August, 2014): Nice, cosy place, good WiFi, feels like home and OMG, what a view!!! Beach is lovely, not too crowded.
Henning Sørensen (March, 2014): Lejligheden er personligt og smagfuldt indrettet med alle nødvendige faciliteter. Området er højt beliggende med en skøn udsigt over Tauritobugten, incl. vidunderlige solnedgange på den store terrasse. Beliggenheden gør det nødvendigt at have lejet en bil, hvilket er billigt, men de offentlige busser er også ok og meget billige. Samarbejdet med ejeren, Nancy, var bare perfekt før og under opholdet med mange omsorgsfulde og personlige ideer tll what to do, herunder restauranter, udflugter, strande, m.v. Et perfekt sted for to personer.
Cools Jozef (February, 2014): Het appartement is vrij hoog gelegen dus een zeer mooi uitzicht, maar wel zeker 10 à 15 minuten serieus klimmen ofwel een taxi nemen. Dus een auto is noodzakelijk, zeker voor de grote aankopen in Mogan (+/- 4 à 5km). Wij hadden een zeer fijne vakantie en het appartement was uitstekend. Het grote terras is zeker een pluspunt. De eigenares was heel vriendelijk en heeft ons alle informatie op voorhand doorgemaild. Ze heeft zelfs nog geinformeerd of alles in orde was als wij ginder waren. Dus een aanrader !
Jan Rydström (April, 2013): Vistelsen på Playa del Taurito var alltigenom lyckad, med utmärkt och lugnt läge för lägenheten och trevligt område. Rekommenderas

Lovely apartment with a fantastic sea view
We had a lovely 2 week stay in this spacious one bedroom apartment which was very well equipped with everything you need. The washing machine was a great asset as you do not need to travel with too many clothes. The balcony is large and also well equipped so you can spend many an hour day or night relaxing and enjoying the fantastic sea view. The photo's and description of the apartment are just as Nancy describes.
Nancy provides excellent information prior to your holiday which was really useful and helpful. Nancy was also very helpful and friendly during our stay as she was staying in their lovely 2 bedroom apartment on the floor above. It was great to meet Nancy and have the opportunity to be shown around their 2 bedroom apartment. Although Nancy was there on holiday at the same time as our holiday she was very respectful of our privacy. It was a bonus to us her being there as she was really friendly and made us feel so welcome in Gran Canaria.
Taurito is a small resort with a nice beach. We hired a car for the 2 weeks so we could explore the island as we enjoy driving through the mountains along with having lazy days on the beach. There are plenty of Taxi's and buses from Taurito so a car is not essential.
All in all a really nice relaxing holiday.
What can we say, an amazing property with a view to die for. A huge balcony to enjoy a drink or a meal and then a beautiful airconditioned apartment to retire to. Nancy is a star, giving all the information you need to enjoy your stay, and in our case when we hit a problem was very supportive and helpful ( again thank you Nancy) we will without a doubt return in the future.
Superbly located apartment with great facilities.
We were lucky enough to stay for three weeks and the apartment was a real home from home.
The previous review was accurate in all respects, Nancy really did do her very best to help in any way she could.
We had a car for the whole duration as the rates were incredibly economic.
We would definitely recommend the location and the accommodation.
My wife and I stayed in this fab apartment for a week in April. It was perfect, just what we wanted. Lovely setting, spotlessly clean and well provisioned. Taurito is quite a small resort but lovely, it was nice and quiet due to the time of year which was perfect for us. I expect it's busier in the summer though. We got the bus from just down the road which gets you to Puerto Mogan in about 10 mins for €1.40 each. Puerto Mogan is a bit bigger and busier with some lovely restaurants so we ate there in the evenings most nights. The owner Nancy was fantastic, she couldn't do enough for us to make sure we had the best possible holiday. Thank you very much for sharing your great apartment with us!
From the Owner
“I love to be at this hillside for the view and the amazing sunsets and the sound of the waves at night... Taurito is located in the middle of the south west of the island which guarantees the best climate Our apartment is at walking distance (10 min) of a sheltered, natural beach, shops, water sports etc. At 5 km from Puerto de Mogan and at 8,5 km from Amadores beach (when I want to see a white beach), so only a short, cheap trip brings me to the crowds whenever I feel like it. Entrance/exit of motorway at 1 km (behind the hills, so no disturbance of view and no noise)”

Huge water park + tennis + mini-golf down in Taurito (950 meter walk)

From the Owner
“You don't often find a place with a big (24 sqm) terrace with such a nice view and here is even an extra (smaller) terrace with the same view, so the outside space is huge for an apartment in Gran Canaria and allows you to fully enjoy the nice weather and views. In our complex there are only 5 two bedroom apartments and only 2 of them have 2 terraces...so this makes it unique. The inside part of the apartment is refurbished to offer the comfort as we all want it nowadays, so there is a fully equipped kitchen with lots of utensils, dishwasher, comfortable furniture, lots of linen and towels (even beach towels), washing machine, tumble dryer, awnings and as a bonus you have A/C and WiFi. Our apartment no longer looks like the other apartments in our complex, because now it has everything I always longed for when I was staying in an apartment before. It is a real comfy place with a lot of outside space and full seaview in a peaceful location. This is the ideal spot for people who want to get away from the crowds but still want to be near them as well.”
