Family from Eastbourne, United Kingdom Aug 2017

We have just returned from a fantastic stay at this apartment. This 2 bedroomed apartment was situated on the ground floor and looked onto the golf driving range. We saw some spectacular sunsets whilst relaxing on the patio during the evenings. It was a very peaceful area, lovely to have the garden to use too and the closest pool is only a short walk away. The apartment is equipped with everything we could ever have needed. Checking in and out was hassle free and reception staff were very friendly. We look forward to returning. A very big thank you to Peter and Yvonne for answering all of our queries prior to arriving and for the use of a wonderful apartment!

Family from Henley On Thames, United Kingdom Aug 2014

We stayed at 747 for the last 2 weeks in August, traveling with our two young boys (6 and 4). We were delighted with our choice of location, the villa is next to the golf driving range and club house (which has a great restaurant). The villa was immaculately clean and well appointed, we didnt find it missing anything we needed. We found the garden space valuable, which was very private. The whole complex was very clean and facilities were well looked after, the closest pool was a minutes walk away, if that! We would thoroughly recommend the villa, it was just as wed hoped and the owners were very friendly and helpful.


Family from Lisbon, Portugal Jul 2014

We have been spending our summer holidays (August) in Balaia Golf Village for the past three years, and this was definitely the best house where we stayed, compared to others in the same complex.
In the apartment everything is very well maintained and clean, with clear instructions for using everything.
In terms of location, despite not being in the center of the complex and very near the beach, the house is located in a quiet and beautiful area (surrounded by golf courses), very close to the Golf Clubhouse (where you can have meals in a pleasent environment), and very close to one of the best pools in the complex - big, but quieter than the others in the complex.
The garden is nice and relaxing, and has a good table with chairs for meals.
The contact via email with the owner always worked well, and he was always polite and kind.
We definitely consider to rent this apartment again.


Couple from Manchester, United Kingdom Oct 2013

A very nice spacious, well equipped and clean apartment in a nice quiet position on the excellent Balaia Golf Village. Overlooks Golf Driving range but has a small garden area with hedges ensuring privacy. Close to a nice pool area which we had to ourselves many days and the golf club house which is a lovely spot for a drink or lunch. We would definately recommend. One bit of feedback, needs two lounger cushions or pads please so people can sunbathe if they wish on apartment patio. This is a really nice complex with beautiful gardens.

Reply from Peter

Hi Graham, we are really pleased you enjoyed your stay. I believe it was mentioned to you that unfortunately the previous tenants left the cushions on the grass and they were saturated in water from the irrigation, we hope this did not spoil things for you. Peter

Excellent quiet location. Ideal for the golf club. The children loved the pool, football and archery all near by. The apartment was clean, spacious and had everything you could need. Would definitely return.

A really good holiday in a super location and a well equipped villa. Great facilities on site and super views. I have scored excellent on all of the following questions put to me. Was it good value for money. Did it meet your expectations. Was the description accurate. Would you recommend it to a friend . Were you happy with the services of Balaia reception. Were the facilities of Balaia adequate for your needs. Alastair and family Hertfordshire

Fantastic 2 bedroom apartment in a delightful location. Has private garden with a lovely table, chairs and sun loungers. The 3 tier pool is very near the apartment and in a lovely setting. The apartment is very well equipped, very clean and well looked after. Only a short walk to the shop but worth a visit for the fresh croissants in a morning for breakfast. We will definitely rent this apartment again and I would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone. Helen and James Butters - Leeds

Fantastic place, its got the lot golf, tennis, gym, pools and now the new bowling green. A sportsmans dream and the kids too. We spent two weeks in this lovely apartment which catered for everything. With a car we visited loads of local attractions. We had a great time and will be back next year!!!! Bob and Jean Clitheroe

Thank you for allowing us to rent your apartment it was really ideal for us and we hope that we can rent from you again. The stage the children are at meant the location of the apartment to the  pool and driving range was perfect as they had some independance. Tried to leave as tidy as possible but we left at 6 a.m so hopefully all was ok. The flat is so bright and spacious and we loved being able to lie on sunloungers outside and not race to put towels at sunloungers at the pool. I hope you enjoy the rest of the summer and we will be in touch with you again soon. Kind regards Joanne Sweeney

We arrived at the property passing the immaculate golf course. Entrance to the property was pleaseing as it seemed like home from home. This is a very nice area of the Algarve as it has evrything for the whole family and the apartment became a fantastic base from which to explore the surrounding areas. Thanks to the owners for their help and presentation.

We had a fantastic time at this apartment, just as the website described. Concerns about air conditioning wre put asside because the apartment being on the ground floor was cool all day and would not have beeen neccessary anyway! There were a selec tion of pools to choose from, the gym, tennis and golf all helped to wile away the days, as did just relaxing on the sunloungers on the grassed garden adjoining the property. Thank you for an enjoyable holiday.

Thanks to Peter and Yvonne for organising the airport transfers and making us so welcome in their lovely apartment. Facilities were excellent and central to most things. We plan on coming back next year. Gerard and Helen Ripley

Just had a fantastic time, apartment was clean, spacious and comfortable. Balaia is a great destination and enjoyed the golf. Bob and Tina-Romford Essex

Just to let you know we had a great time at Balaia, the apartmentwas spot on, Home from home.thanks again and we look forward to seeing you againSteve

After using your apartment before, we decided to come back again. It did not disappoint. Your facilities were excellent and we find it ideal as a base in which to travel from. It is central and within half an hour of most of the attractions on the Algarve coast. The weather could have been a little better but we do not expect you to provide everything.Thanks again and we hope to be back in the not too distant future.

We are an elderley couple in our seventies and have just spent 2 weeks here. The apartment was clean light and was supplied with everything we needed. My husband is a golfer and was in his element, having the driving range on one side and the golf course on the other. Although a little long for us we managed to walk to the local shops and the beaches. There is also plenty to do in the complex as well. We will be coming back to this apartment. Carole Redditch

This was our first holiday that was not package deal and we loved it. The apartment was probably in one of the best positions in the village. The pool was 50m away and the golf club house was next door. The apartment was perfect and usually very quiet considering the time of year and the description was very good. There are many good restaurants within a 10 minute walk and Albufeira was close and had very good night life. I would recommend the apartment to anyone and we will probably return in the very near future!

This apartment was quiet, clean, light and airy with all the home comforts inside. Just 10 mins outside the complex we came accross warm sands and beautiful blu ocean, we couldn't ask for more. Kelly and family

Excellent apartment with all amenities. Close to the beach, restaurants and bars. An ideal location for our family. Would definitely come back again.

We stayed in this property as a family with a small baby and found all of the facilities to be excellent. The staff were friendly and helpful. We would definitely stay again and would recommend to other people. Emma

The villa is in a excellent location with all the amenities close by.Roger and Sue Barnstable
