Located on the hills surrounding the small city of Ericeira, Moka Surfhouse is a typical Portuguese villa, with a large garden and a terrace with ocean view.

The house offers double rooms, twin rooms and shared rooms (max 4 people) with common bathrooms (bedding and towels are provided at arrival), a large dining-room with a fully equipped kitchen for guests, external barbecue and a relax area, television, and video.

This package includes six yoga classes and five surf lessons. The weekly timetable will be flexible, according with the weather and ocean conditions in order to allow the guests to enjoy always the best waves during the surf lesson. At the surf school you will find qualified instructors to guide you step by step and to provide you with all of the necessary equipment. At the end of your lesson we will take you back to Moka Surf House tired and happy!

Dorotea

Dorotea will be the yoga instructor. She is a certified RYT 200 Ashtanga Vinyasa and Rocket yoga teacher and her style is strongly influenced by her background in ballet and contemporary dance. In her classes Dorotea always encourages her students to listen and to bring stillness in their body and mind. At the same time she never forgets the need for students to play, fall and step out of their comfort zone. Her classes are strong, dynamic, energetic and always incorporate a strong breathing technique. Expect to sweat, play, invert and enjoy a long savasana at the end!

MokaSurfhouse is 5 minutes by car from the center of Ericeira, an old fishermen village featuring typical light-blue and white houses facing the ocean. Restaurants and night clubs are increasingly crowded by tourists every year. You can enjoy the fresh fish that arrives daily at the little harbor, and the numerous surf shops, as well as the warm welcoming of the locals.

Ericeira is also a perfect starting point for discovering the many attractions of the Estremadura region: not far from the famous old village of Sintra, one of the most popular historical well-known locations in Portugal which has also been declared, since 1995, a Unesco Human Heritage and from the natural park of Tapada Nacional de Mafra, a charming location for those who love nature.

    "Moka is an awesome place to stay. As others have said, the staff are excellent and cool people, making you feel at home and the atmosphere is very open with plenty of space to chill. The fact that it is a little bit isolated on a beautiful country hill (maybe 1 hour walk from the center of Ericeira along very nice coastal path) makes it a really social hostel as people share rides, do events, go surfing etc. all together which involves everyone that is around and dead easy to meet others. The film nights, Italian dinners, barbecues, surf lessons and especially the yoga (be prepared to SWEAT!) were all excellent. Special thanks to management, can't wait to come back."

    "Highlight of my trip to Portugal. Moka is a beautiful house (with big communal terrace, garden and balcony) not too far from the breathtaking coastline of Ericeira (Sao Juliao beach!). Staff are excellent. They all make you feel at home from the start and all is very well organised: From pick up from the bus station, to surf and yoga classes, to Italian dinners. Definitely recommend!"

    "Staff and guests help to create the right mood. The house is well maintained and clean, there are good coaches during the surf lessons for beginners. The limited number of guests allows you to relax and meet everyone. I suggest to follow also the yoga lessons, especially for people like me who never tried this kind of activity because it is well structured for beginners. Don't lose the welcome dinner with barbecue of fish/meat!!"

    "Back again in Moka Surfhouse, together with my brother and a friend. News were all around the house! From this season you can enjoy practicing skate directly in the front yard. And yoga classes have been increased in order to train your body for the surf time. As from the first year the staff is amazing and warm, every guest suddenly feels at home, rooms, kitchen and bathrooms always clean and tidy."

    "First trip I've done by myself and the staff made me feel right at home! They are honestly genuinely nice and are concern that you are having fun. I really enjoyed my stay with them not only did I meet wonderful people but also the yoga and surfing experience was incredible. You will not regret it! I plan on coming back."

    "Moka Surfhouse hosted us for a lovely week of surf, yoga, and Italian family feel. We really enjoyed our stay, and we would recommend anyone with an interest to try out surfing in cozy, safe, warm, friendly circumstances to go here."

    "The surf house is actually a local villa turned into a hostel. It is about 10 minutes drive from Ericeria and the shopping and restaurants there. It has a really friendly atmosphere, where everyone seem to become friends within minutes."

    "Hanging out at Moka between yoga and surf is really cozy. If you want to go to town, Moka staff will take you there at a very reasonable price, and there are also taxis, buses, and even bikes for a ride in the beautiful mountains."

    "We were lucky to get over own room with four beds. The bath room was in the hall, just next to our room. This was as close to a real hotel room as it gets. Of course, everything is hostel standard, and not at four or five star level. But there is all you need and the place is very clean and well kept."

    "The sea and surf itself was amazing. Beautiful beaches, fierce but surfable waves, good, local instructors. As beginners, we could not ask for more. Even more, the Portuguese local people are very polite, helpful and friendly. In Ericeria there is a cozy cafe and restaurant life with some quite good fish and seafood restaurants. The town in itself is quite beautiful and charming."

    "In short, Moka Surfhouse is a very, very good spot for active family vacation in beautiful and pleasant surroundings and with excellent hosts and family feel."

    "I had a great time there. I loved the people taking care of us and the other guests there. There were nice teachers, too. The dogs of the owner and their babys were lovely to be around. I loved the house, the garden and the kitchen area. I loved the sitting area, the terasse, the beds and the rooms. The bathrooms were tidy and nice. Cleaning was done every day. I met awesome people there and I had a god time! Yoga - lessons also were very very well taught! Best recommendation from my side!"

    "It was my best beach vacation - full of waves, good people around, and Italiano (both Italian people and Italian talks). Thank you for the perfect atmosphere you create in your surf house, your valuable advice about everything and warm welcome of all guests. I hope to come back next year or even sooner - in the past month in Moscow I can't stop thinking about ocean and when can I find some time and some good tickets to come to Portugal."
