Welcome to our castle
You are the king, we are the castle, that is the motto of Ericeira Surf House. It is the perfect place for surfers who want to combine a peaceful holiday in a quality guesthouse with the best possible surf. Surrounded by a beautiful garden with a big swimming pool and a bar, the guesthouse has different types of spacious bedrooms and multiple bathrooms. You don’t need to share bathrooms if you don’t want to, as there are also ensuite bedrooms available.
To hang around and get to know other guests we have a big and cosy living room with multiple games. There is free Wifi in and around the house. If you feel like cooking your own meals there is a fully equipped kitchen available for our guests.
The guesthouse faces south so the garden and terraces on each floor are sheltered from the dominant north-eastern winds. This ensures that you can fully enjoy the sun all day long, even on the cooler days. From both the garden and the terraces you have a wonderful view over the countryside with the ocean in the background.
Ericeira Surf House is licensed as Alojamento Local following the Portuguese law and is therefore an official guesthouse that fulfills the legal requirements regarding safety, hygiene, layout and condition of the property.
What to find at the guesthouse

As surfers we care about the nature. That’s why we try to reduce our ecological footprint as much as possible. The guesthouse also has solar panels that pre-heat our water.
Yoga and Massage
Nothing better than some quality time for your body and soul after some exciting surf sessions. That’s why we organize once a week yoga and massages at the house
50 m2 Pool
Our big garden has fruit trees, multiple places to relax and a 50m2 pool with sun deck. You can enjoy ice-cold drinks in the sun at the pool or simply lay down and do nothing in the shade of the trees.
There is free high speed Wifi in and around the house. Since it’s holiday, you might want to be as less as possible surfing the web. But sometimes it’s nice to be able to watch some Netflix or combine your holiday with work.
Where is the guesthouse
The guesthouse is located just a few steps south of Ericeira in a small village called Fonte Boa da Brincosa. This is the best possible location as it is within walking distance of the surf beach Foz do Lizandro, the break of Praia do Sul and Ericeira town center. Also the other famous surf breaks, such as Ribeira d’Ilhas, São Julião and Coxos are within easy reach.
The area surrounding the guesthouse is full of nature. At the house you will find an environment where you can fully relax after a long day at the beach or an evening in the city center. It’s the perfect place to combine a relaxed holiday with the best possible surf. And if you would like to get cultural, Lisbon and the Unesco world heritage town of Sintra (also seen as the nicest town in Portugal) are only 30 minutes by car. Also Cabo da Roca, the most western point of the Eurasian continent is only 35 kilometres away.
All the good things you want
