Program Details

Welcome to our dream home! We are Sofia and Mario, a surfer couple in early thirties. We are regular people with regular jobs, recently we decided to make our dream come true and purchase a life-long investment guesthouse in our favorite village - Ericeira. We wanted a cozy home surrounded by nature to raise our baby but also a home to share with other travelers. We have built this guest house from the scratch with a lot of love and with help of our friends. Now, we want our guests to enjoy it as much as we do, and we will do our best to give everyone a relaxing and truly local experience.
We live on the first floor, so we will be able to help you with any doubt. We'll always be close :)
We'll provide your stay, and we also try to make you be part of the family and invite you to our programs with our friends and family.

Activities & Shift

We need someone to do the cleaning of the house, prepare the rooms for new guests, do the laundry, and all the tasks needed to keep a house clean all days for the guests.
We believe that 3 hours per day (average) will be enough for all this tasks. :)
