What makes this House unique
The villa was rebuilt in 2012 so it could be used all year around. The materials are all high quality, it has air conditioner in all rooms and there are a fireplace in the dinning room by the kitchen. The floor of the main bathroom is heated so in Winter as well has towel hangers. There is a shower cabin outside the main bathroom where you can have the pleasure of a unique shower after coming from the beach. Outside the dinning room there is a place to eat on the shadow so you can enjoy your meals outside all around the year.

Beautiful private villa in wonderful resort- would be 5 star in better weather
There are many positives about this property and only a few negatives, some of which wouldn't be issues for other people or in better weather. The villa is in the Balaia Golf Resort, one of the nicest and prettiest resorts around. Beautifully landscaped grounds. There are 6 pools and they are all different shapes and sizes. Unfortunately for us, in mid-April they were freezing. colder than the ocean. The one heated outdoor pool wasn't very warm and it was difficult to use with our small kids (10 mos and 3 yrs) because it was 6 feet deep. We had to hang on side with one arm and support kids with the other. In warmer weather the other pools could be used and they all had small kid-friendly shallow ends. There is an indoor heated pool, but kids under 4 aren't welcome and you have to pay 2EU per person to use it. The beach is walking distance (800 m) from the villa and it is a gorgeous. Although only about 150 meters long, it has soft sand, no commercialism and fabulous views. The bar on the beach has amazing seafood and wonderful staff. We loved it. There are some nice restaurants about a 10 min walk and many more a short inexpensive taxi ride away. The resort Reception area is well staffed and booked taxis for us. We were glad we weren't closer to Old Town or New Town. Those areas are noisy, congested and touristy. The villa is in a much nicer and prettier area. We had 4 adults and 2 small children. There were many taxi vans available that provided 2 car seats and room for all of us, so getting into town was easy. Word of warning, the main restaurant at the resort has terrible food. It's pricey and inedible. We didn't try the restaurant at the golf course. The bar at the golf course was nice. It doesn't stay open late. If you want any nightlife you need to go into Old or New Town or to bar at the beach. The villa was beautiful and modern. It has wonderful patios with tables on both sides, so you can dine outside in AM on East side and in PM on the West side. We had lousy weather so we couldn't use those much. Villa layout is odd. There is no couch downstairs. Only couch area is upstairs, which our senior citizen had difficulty getting to. Kitchen had everything you need. Lots of towels were provided. Beds weren't too comfortable. Internet was slow & dropped a lot. TV service was average. Master shower was dangerously slippery but cool.Kids used it as pool.Kids toys for beach and indoors were greatly appreciated. Beach chairs/umbrella provided.
Villa far out weighed our expectations
Villa was well equipped with modern equipment that all worked including some very effective air con! Very spacious and clean. Owner was quick to respond on any queries throughout the booking process and obliging around checkin and check out. Would definitely return. This was my 10th year on Balaia Golf Village and the best villa in that time by a country mile,
Só queremos voltar!
Já conhecíamos o agradável aldeamento do Balaia Golf Village mas nunca ficámos tão bem hospedados. Uma casa muito ampla, bem equipada (eletrodomésticos, loiças, etc), renovada recentemente com materiais de qualidade e design. A "cereja em cima do bolo" é o quarto das crianças e a banheira/piscina que eles adoram! Fantástico!
Também gostámos muito de vos ter connosco.
Maio, Junho, Setembro e Outubro são meses geralmente muito bons para se estar na nossa villa. Os preços são muito mais em conta e geralmente há menos turistas e a temperatura é ainda muito agradável e a praia é uma maravilha.
O mês de Junho foi uma óptima escolha para as vossas férias.
Voltem sempre !!!!
Excelente - as melhores férias na Balaia
Desde o primeiro dia de marcação das férias que a simpatia e disponibilidade da proprietária foram sempre constantes até ao último dia da estadia. Foram sempre tidos em conta todos os esclarecimentos ou pedidos que tínhamos e, inclusive, foi possível utilizar o berço existente na vivenda sem qualquer custo adicional.
A vivenda tem uma qualidade excepcional (mobiliário, decoração, qualidade dos materiais e acabamentos, higiene e isolamento térmico e acústico). As casas-de-banho e, em particular, o chuveiro exterior são excepcionais.
A qualidade superior da vivenda (e a sua localização perto de uma das piscina do empreendimento - é só atravessar a estrada) associada à simpatia e empenho dos proprietários em bem receber os hóspedes fizeram das nossas férias em família as melhores que já passamos na balaia.
Sem dúvida que regressaremos.
Para nós é um prazer receber hóspedes como vós e estamos sempre ao dispor para satisfazer os desejos das vossas férias de sonho, como sempre tentamos proporcionar.
Tivémos muito gosto em saber que tanto gostaram e cá estaremos à espera aquando do vosso regresso.
Sejam sempre benvindos e até breve,
An amazing week in an amazing property.
Clean, spacious, very well maintained and in a perfect location.
The pool was literally across the road and the supermarket was a 5 minute walk.
Hoping to return again soon.
É para voltar!
Alojamento 5 estrelas. Inserido num aldeamento extremamente simpático. Habitação com ótimas condições, grande áreas e excelente localização mesmo em frente à piscina. Ideal para férias em família ou com amigos. Os miúdos adoraram.
Obrigada pelo seu gentil comentário.
O facto de a piscina ficar mesmo em frente á casa é de facto muito agradável e prático.
Além das piscinas espero que também tenham usufruido do duche exterior e da pequena "piscina para crianças" que é a banheira da WC principal.
Foi um prazes recebê-los e esperamos de novo por vós.
