About the property

Tauro, - Peaceful Location But Within Walk To 2 Golf Courses, Driving Range, Beach Within 10 Mins By Car

This property is very 'home from home', comfortably furnished a place to relax.It is not a holiday apartment so if you are retired and want to come for a month or more It is somewhere that feels like home. The property is up into the head of the valley, hence has great views down to the sea and mountains. loads of terrace space for sun bathing. All the rooms have effective ceiling fans, if you need them. The kitchen is well equipped for ease of use. You will even have a view down to the sea when you are preparing meals. We can arrange for cleaning services if required . All bed-linen and towels are provided. If you have a problem, you will be given telephone numbers of people who will help you. We have contact with boat owner moored in Puerto Rico harbour if you want a day out at sea to go fishing

If you want to have a day out fishing, we can arrange for that also. Would be a good idea to book before you arrive to save disappointment.

You are connected with WIFI so bring your ipad, tablet or laptop with you. You will be able to get normal english tv. There is also a DVD and loads of dvd's. Small library of books. Home from home, in fact.

About Judith Birch

I bought the house as my daughter was married to a Canarian and was teaching in the area. I go out as often as I can. If I didn't have three sons and many grandchildren, 3 great grandchild, back in England ,I would probably live out there all the time. It is not a tourist area ( although if you would like that occasionally, you only have to drive to Puerto Rico, 10min drive away) For me it has to be home from home. I have made many friends out there especially at the English/International church in Puerto Rico behind the shopping centre.

The weather, of course , is brilliant. The air is pollutant free in the south of the island. And the skys at night are so clear you can see multitudes of stars. Sunsets too can be very dramatic.

Judith Birch purchased this villa in 2005

Why Judith Birch chose Mogán

I have only just put the house onto the holiday website, again, recently. In the past people have always said how they loved its position and have had people coming back year after year. It was always also considered to quote 'amazing value for money' and I do try to keep the rent down as much as I can, especially with everyone suffering from the economic crisis. I love to hear that people have had a really great holiday. That makes me smile !

What makes this villa unique

Two golf courses and one driving range within walking distance has to be a good benefit. Being so near to a variety of places to visit and things to do.

Within easy access to motorway taking you to other parts of the island as quickly as possible.

The air along this stretch of the island is really healthy. You can tell at night under a cloudless sky how clean that air is, you can see so many stars.

Guestbook comments from the manager

They were lovely people I would not hesitate to have them again. They have sent in a review but I can't see it under reviews perhaps you could look into that. You will see the personal email regarding their stay. Judith

Comfortable,spacious and convenient

  • 5 of 5

Dad, 2 daughters and 2 sons in law stayed 2 weeks. Convenient to Mercadona and Spar. Easy access to south and south west resorts and beaches.House is well appointed with loads of cutlery, crockery, pots and pans and implements. More than adequate for 6 persons. Easy walk to Tauro and Amadores beaches. Puerto Rico less than 10 minutes by car. We all had a great time.

Beautiful holiday in Tauro

  • 5 of 5

We (four adults and two children) spent five great days in this amazing place,which was ideally situated for us.The property was everything we hoped it would be, very clean. Fully equipped with everything you could want. Everything was perfect, the equipment of the house is sufficient and the reality coresponds with the nice pictures on the website. The rooms are big and spacious and the views are stunning.It has all you need including ocean view, silence, 3 bedrooms, washing machine, sitting area etc.

We really enjoyed our stay and would like to return.I would recommend the property to anyone wanting a quiet location.We'll just have to go back!

Judith, thanks a lot!

Would recommend this property to anyone that wants perfection in every way.

Aygul Tamasheva and whole the company.

Quiet place with a really nice terrace

  • 5 of 5

We really loved the large terrace with the nice view and outside grill. The location of the place is in the quit small town. Maybe the beds could be more comfortable, but not a big problem.

Thank you Judith for letting us stay at your lovely property this is my second time staying at the villa which is very well equipped, clean and comfortable with everything you would need for a great holiday.

We welcomed a visit from Judith's daughter Lizzy and her husband during the week just to find out if everything was okay from our side which was great.

Couple of things I would like to add which might assist Judith in the future, whilst we were there it was very hot (I suppose it's what you expect in Canaries and what we went for), there is no air conditioning and meant that the villa/apartment was boiling hot, consequently we had to have the fans on practically all the time which can't help with the bills - might be something to think about putting air con at least in the bedrooms and lounge, would reduce the need for fans although I can understand maybe costly - this however didn't detract from us having a lovely time!

I am looking forward to going to the villa again, hopefully in the not too distant future.

Owner's Response: Thankyou girls for a lovely review. I am considering putting in air-conditioning, as you say it is very expensive. The whole of this year has been a great deal hotter than one would normally expect, certainly in October. I believe the lady who looks after the property brought in extra fans but still very hot. Most years any profit I make on the lettings I spend on improvements And I am now considering having air-conditioning. I really don't mind about the electric bill. The most important thing to me is that my guests are happy and comfortable.

The beachs at Puerto Rico and Amadores ,especially, are really good beaches. They would take about 10 min to drive to. Now you can reach the lovely, unique resort of Mogan in about 20 mins. Plenty of sports activity going. 2 golf courses, one 9 hole and one 18 hole, also a really good driving range.

We can also arrange fishing trips from Puerto Rico harbour.

There is a new sports centre at Arguinigan 15min away. It has swimming pool and other activities. The good thing is it is very reasonable priced. They also have a market in Arguinigan on Tuesday morning


The only airport is at Las Palmas . We always recommend hiring a car to make the best of your holiday. These can be hired from the airport. Time taken to travel to Tauro down GC1 motorway is about 40 mins. You can also get taxi's to take you. There is also a pretty efficient bus service, taking a bus will take longer as they go through villages and towns.

Further Details:

In the village you will find a very good Spar supermarket who will deliver if you request it. A restaurant , a bar at the 9 hole golf course open to non-golfers. Anfi Golf hotel also have a restaurant which is open to non-residents.
