The Experience

We're looking for a friendly person to help us taking care of our house and guesthouse, with cleaning, cooking and some other random house tasks :) We have a small baby and we feel that we need more time to be with her. So we're asking for someone that can cook the dinner for us and also keep our house clean. Also to help us with the guesthouse when it's needed ;) We'll also try to make volunteers feeling like their home! Come and join us!

The Like a Local guest house was the first experience on the Worldpackers and I couldn’t choose other best place to start. The hosts Sofia and Mario are amazing people, so helpful and darling. The house it’s amazing and comfortable. I really recomende the experience there.


United States

Sophia and Mario are very kind and helpful. I felt like part of the family, and Sophia was very receptive to my comments, questions, and concerns. I felt very supported and appreciated.



In here you're not only gonna feel like a local, but also feel like home! Sofia and Mario are great hosts, such a cool couple, so easy to communicate and patient to explain everything. And the guest house is super well equipped. The tasks are simple - cleaning and organizing, nothing out of ordinary. Some days may be busier (when there are more guests checking in and out) and others super chill - just like in any job. They always made me feel like part of the family, introducing me to all of their friends and including me in their activities. I had lots of fun and made friends for life! <3



Another good experience with Worldpackers!
The hosts are super friendly, lovely and easy going. Always help with everything. The gust house more than comfortable, well equipped. The work team always pleasant and good work at the time of doing the tasks. I recommend% 100 the guest house. Muito obrigado!!



Our experience in Like a Local was so good that we are actually staying for the whole season!! Mario and Sofía are amazing hosts and very easy to work with. The guesthouse is not only pretty but also full of activities. We truly recommend coming here (as a guest or as a volunteer).
We love this place and we love Ericeira! Best people ever
