Set in a secluded area of Tauro, but within an 8 minute walk or 3 minute drive, to the first tee of the new Tauro PGA Championship Golf Course, Spar Shop and the Anfi Tauro Grill restaurant. Villa Unique was designed by an English architect and built in 1995 to an extremely high specification and set in beautiful grounds of some 600 square metres. The villa has an abundance of marble and has tiled floors throughout. It is decorated and furnished to a very high standard throughout. Outside, the main patio area overlooks the solar-heated swimming pool which measures approximately 24x14ft. The villa swimming pool has a new saline filter system, which has substantial benefits to standard chlorine pools – kinder to the skin and hair, no harsh chlorine smell and no red/sore eye problems. The taste of the water is approximately 1/12th as salty as the ocean, so it is very mild - the same as a tear drop, so hardly any actual salt taste. The saline water is extremely soft on the skin, the same as if you have a water softener at home. The main patio is reached through the patio doors from the lounge area and it is here where you can comfortably sit, BBQ and quietly watch the world go by with a cool glass of wine and take a refreshing dip in the pool when needed. The villa has free Wi-Fi, Satellite TV with DVD/Cinema system with a large collection of recent films, music and iPod docking. Air-conditioning and heating throughout.

About Paul Kimsey
I run a business based on quality and service, which I believe to be essential in order to gain the right reputation with clients. We travel to some luxury destinations and have very high standards, which we have emulated at Villa Unique.
Paul Kimsey purchased this Villa in 2006
Why Paul Kimsey chose Mogán
Having been well travelled, we decided to purchase in Gran Canaria, mainly because of the fantastic climate all year round, as well as only being approxmately 4 hours away. We regard Gran Canaria as the better Island in the Canaries - classy with a variety of 'things to do' for all ages. Having scoured the island for the ideal place to buy, we were lucky to find Tauro, which we believe to be perfect - extremely quiet, yet walking distance to a Spa shop, restaurant and Championship Golf Course. 35 minutes drive from the airport, 5 minutes from Puert Rico and the beautiful beach at Amadores and 10 minutes from the lovely Puerto Mogan harbour. Sat on the verhanda, by the illuminated pool of an evening, with a glass of wine, in luxury suuroundings and peace and quiet is absolute bliss.
What makes this Villa unique
The villa and the surrounding area/s have everything you would need and appreciate. Fantastic restaurants close by, which we list and recommend in the villa information pack. Waterparks and numerous activities for the kids and the wonderful Amadores Beach Club for ultimate sunbathing and luxury food for the discerning adults. Golf and Big Game fishing are a stones throw away. We have recently (Nov 15) fitted a complete and 'state of the art' kitchen/dining area. May 2016 - The villa swimming pool now boasts a new saline filter system, which has substantial benefits to standard chlorine pools – kinder to the skin and hair, no harsh chlorine smell and no red/sore eye problems. The taste of the water is approximately 1/12th as salty as the ocean, so it is very mild - the same as a tear drop, so hardly any actual salt taste. The saline water is extremely soft on the skin, the same as if you have a water softener at home. We recently had a packaged holiday in Tenerife, staying in a 5 Star Hotel, but I can honestly say that this did not compare with Gran Canaria and the villa.

Scuba Diving in Gran Canaria is amongst the best in Europe. A vast variety of sea life can be encountered from the Tangs, Parrot Fish, Wrasse, Eels and many Angel Shark. There are several well established dive sites including the local (2 mins away) Amadores beach. Water temperatures range between 18 - 25 Degrees C. A 3/5 mm suit is required in the summer through to late November and a 5/7mm exposure suit is needed from December until late April. Let us know if you are a diver and we will put you in touch with our recommended Padi specialist or recommend dive sites for the independent diver.
The local beach is Amadores, which is one of the best on the island. It is a large expanse of white coral sand in a very safe man made bay. There are 2 other beaches within 5 mins of the property at Tauro and Playa de Cura.
The local airport is Las Palmas airport (LPA). It is 30-35 minutes drive along the GC1 - a two/three lane motorway all the way to Tauro and the villa. Car hire is easy and can be arranged for collection from the airport.
2 minutes drive to the championship golf course 1st tee, Spar shop and the Anfi Tauro Grill restaurant. The nearest town is Puerto Rico which is 5 minutes drive away. The most interesting town for most of our guests is Puerto Mogan which is 8-10 minutes drive away. It's appeal is its quaint harbour area, beach, restaurants and walkways. The beautiful Amadores and its wonderful beach and many restaurants is 5 minutes drive away.
