About Desmond

My wife and I live in Dublin. My wife and family love to holiday in Balaia when ever we get the chance. We find the complex quiet, relaxing & uncrowded even in peak times; its the perfect place to revitalise.

Desmond purchased this apartment in 2003

Why Desmond chose Vale Navio

We chose Balaia, in the Algarve because of the year round climate, golf village with all the amenities, a 30 min drive from Faro, 15 min walk to beautiful sandy beaches with restaurants, hire equipment & water sports and 5 min drive (6euro taxi) to the centre of Albufeira town.

What makes this apartment unique

Very peaceful, relaxing environment, surrounded by manicured lawns, colourful flora, on site restaurant & club house, 24hr reception & security.

Relaxing break ....

  • 5 of 5

Reluctantly just returned home after spending a relaxing week in this superb apartment in Balaia.

From start to finish service was superb with Des being more than helpful - booking very smooth and plenty of information provided.

The property is as described, very well equipped with air conditioning, Wi-Fi and safe. The location within the resort could not be better, light, clean and airy, a very large terrace with all day sun and also some shade if required. Welcome pack was plentiful and very much appreciated - thank you.

I would certainly recommend this property and hope to return.

Home away from Home

  • 5 of 5

Super apartment, all the comforts of home with addition of aircon, TV's with Irish/UK stations and great WiFi. All the appliances you could possibly need are available, including safe. The apartment is situated in a great location in Balaia, pools and Golf club house nearby. The complex is very safe and ideal for family holiday. Communications with owner's were excellent and I would have no hesitation recommending these owners and apartment to friends, they organised a Welcome pack on arrival which was very much appreciated after a long night of travelling. Hope to return to Balaia and deal with Des again.

We just arrived home after a fabulous 10 night stay here. I have to say we couldn't be happier.

Apartment was lovely and well furnished with air con in 3 rooms, wifi & massive sun terrace. We arrived to a really useful welcome pack too.

Complex is absolutely beautiful and so very big with 6 pools perfect for all ages. apartment overlooks the driving range & close to golf club house but very quite even in main sumer holidays.

This was my first time using owners direct but the owner was brilliant, very thorough and always available for questions. I will definitely be using the site and this apartment again

Fantastic Apartment

  • 5 of 5

We spent 2 weeks in August 2014 at the Balaia Golf Resort and had a fabulous time. Plenty to do for a family if 5 - ticked all the boxes. The apartment is excellent - huge roof top terrace which was a great bonus. Very spacious, and all equipment you need for a 2 week holiday. We hired a car but not necessary, if you like golf, tennis and are happy by the pool.

Will definitely be returning to the resort and the apartment. Owners are very helpful.
