The house you will stay at is a Portuguese villa with a large garden and a terrace with ocean view, and beyond the hills, you can find the Palácio Nacional de Mafra.

Moka offers double rooms, twin rooms, and shared rooms (maximum four people) with different common bathrooms, bed linen, and towels are provided at your arrival. There is a large dining-room with a fully equipped kitchen for guests and everyone has his own space for food and drink in the fridge and in the pantry.

Yoga lessons are held in the shala, which can be also free used as the wave skate ramp. In the large courtyard located in the middle of the house, you can chat with people, dining outdoor, and enjoy the open air cinema in Portuguese warm evenings! But if you are searching for of a quiet place, you will always find a spot under a fruit tree in the lovely garden.

Every day, you will have two yoga classes. The one in the morning, at 09:00, will be dynamic and energizing, based on a mix of Rocket and Vinyasa flow yoga, while the one in the afternoon, at 18:00, will be slow and focused on deep stretch, based on a mix of slow flow and Yin yoga.

  • Dorotea Zafferani

    Dorotea is a certified RYT 400 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. Dorotea's 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!

Moka is on the top of the hill just outside 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 as well as the warm welcoming of the locals.

Getting around from the house is very easy: daily transfer to and from beach and Ericeira is included in your pack! Furthermore, you can use the bikes for free, take the bus which stops just a few steps from the house, rent a scooter, or take a stroll and reach the two nearby beaches through a beautiful trail.

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 and right above the Sintra and Cascais Natural Park, a charming location for those who love nature.

Lisbon is easily reached either by car or by bus (around 40 minutes ride).

Nearby places

  • Ericeira - 5 minutes
  • Lisbon - 40 minutes

As the staff is Italian, food is always in their mind and plays a central role in their day! Among other things, you’ll taste pizza, pasta fresca, mouth-watering fish recipes and, of course, moka coffee! During your stay, you will receive a tasty and healthy breakfast every day and two delicious dinners.

During the day, you can decide to have surf lessons, visit Ericeira, Sintra, or Lisbon, or just lay down in the sun at the beach. Moka Surf House also provide surf equipment rental, horse riding, SUP lessons, surf guides, and surf training on request and at added costs.

If you are interested in spending a day walking along the small streets of Baixa and Chiado, or enjoying evenings between Alfama and Bairro Alto, Lisbon is easily reached either by car or by bus. You can also visit nearby tourist attractions.

The Sintra and Cascais Natural Park is also just around the corner. Moka offers trekking tours within the territory of the park during which you’ll deeply immerse yourself in this wonderful and wild Portuguese area. From the cliffs, you’ll admire unique landscapes, recharge your mind, and feel the ocean in all its power.

You will enjoy one complimentary 60-minute session of deep tissue massage. Dorotea is a qualified Raynor technique massage therapist, a deep tissue holistic technique focused on finding and releasing tension. Its origins are in Ayurvedic massage, Chinese medicine, Lomi Lomi, reflexology, Shiatsu, and yoga breath work combined with deep tissue body work to the release of prana (or chi).

The primary goal of Raynor naturopathic massage is to relieve someone from residual tension, muscle tightness (in an area of the body when the body is at rest), and return the body to a natural state of relaxation. With this technique, it is believed that each massage should not be performed in a routine manner since every person is different and must be addressed with a specific treatment depending on their needs.

This is the reason why for Dorotea it is important to get know the person first in order to understand their needs and work together towards bringing the body to his natural state of relaxation.

    Entspannung pur

    CONS Cons: Es liegt etwas weiter außerhalb als ich erwartet hatte, aber durch die täglichen Transfers zum Strand und in die Stadt kann man sich trotzdem sehr gut arrangieren.

    PROS Pros: Die Atmosphäre im Moka Surfhouse ist so freundlich und entspannt, dass man von Anfang an das Gefühl von "Urlaub" bekommt. Die Besitzer sind unglaublich nett, zugewandt und hilfsbereit. Das Essen ist super lecker, Yoga und Massage waren auch toll.

    CONS Cons: The breakfast & evening meal was tasty but a bit lacking in protein & healthy fats for my liking. And the mattress was quite thin.

    A wonderful family run retreat with beautiful yoga teacher!

    CONS Cons: Nothing!

    PROS Pros: Moka is a very relaxed and wonderful place to be. The 2 couples that run the house and activities are genuine, friendly, incredibly helpful people. They have made the place seem like you are at home! Dorotea who runs the yoga classes is amazing, she teaches a range of styles and is very passionate about what she teaches. She makes any level of yogi feel welcome and has the ability to make modifications for those that need it. She creates a very calming and positive environment to practice yoga. She is also does the massages, the best I have ever had! This place isn't luxury, and not what I wanted, it is simple, clean and a chance to meet some of the nicest people. They provide a shuttle to the beach everyday, approx 10mins drive away. A super market is 30seconds away and a few restaurants. I highly recommend the organised dinner and breakfast is simple but generous! I would love to return!!! The staff are all wonderful and friendly!

    The perfect Portugese retreat!

    CONS Cons: There isn't anything I didn't like everything was great!

    PROS Pros: We came here for a week just for the yoga. It was the best holiday and felt so relaxed all week. Everyone is so lovely and the food...WOW! Breakfast every morning too with fresh juice, fruit and home made cake. The yoga was challenging but felt really flexible and strong by the end of the week. Lovely mountain and beach walks nearby, just perfect you must go! We will be back :)

    Review by Nicole Felicitas from Canada

    Amazing and rejuvenating - PERFECT.

    PROS Pros: The owners and staff of Moka House have created a very special place. A place that was quiet and relaxing, but still provided a fun and playful atmosphere. The accommodations are simple, clean, and comfortable. There's a little whimsy and romance in each room of the house. The outdoor living spaces are unique. welcoming, and calming, each providing a space to enjoy the outdoors and time to yourself if that's what you need. The meals were also simple and delicious. The continental breakfasts with a daily breakfast box was definitely one of my favourites. I looked forward to it every morning. The homemade suppers were also good. The servings are large that I always ended up having extra for the next day. This was a great value to me. The yoga schedule was great! It provided a nice mix of different yoga practices. Dorortea is an experienced yogi with a cheerful smile and a great spirit. She was flexible with the schedule and didn't mind doing a different practice if asked. The owners are GREAT people. One of them was always at the house during business hours and all of them are friendly people. Spending time with them and getting to know them was wonderful. The same can be said for the rest of the in-house staff. David and Alice were super friendly, approachable, helpful, and also a pleasure to get to know. Though it's not in Ericeira, Moka House provides a daily transfer to and from town. It's only 10 minutes away! There is also a city bus that you can take and the bus stop is a 3 min walk from the house! It's EASY and ACCESSIBLE so you're able to go back and forth to the main village. I HIGHLY recommend going to Moka for yoga and surf. It's an AMAZING place! I would go there again, for sure.

    A special jewel in the hills of Ericeira

    CONS Cons: The dact that I had to leave.

    PROS Pros: Moka is a very special place tucked up in the hills of Ericeira.  From the moment that I was picked up at the stop in town to the final good byes, I am so grateful for the time that I spent there.  Highlights start with the incredible warmth of the entire staff, every single one of them.  Then there was the daily yoga, multiple chit chats in their lovely courtyard, walks to/along the beach, the soothing waves of the ocean, dinners al fresco in the setting of the Portuguese villa that the super talented Moka team created and continue to develop.  For someone who was heading out solo (a little hesitantly) on a quest for sun, some activity and the possibilities of meeting new people, I sure did score.  I can't wait to return. Thank you for the amazing getaway. Wishing you the very best if the season. Thank you!

    Schöner Urlaub, aber noch Luft nach oben

    CONS Cons: Irgendwie passte im Moka House alle, aber ganz rund war es eben nicht. Und das sage ich nicht, weil ich sonst 1000-Euro-Retreats gewohnt bin. Ich weiß auch nicht, ob einfach ein Hauch Gastfreundlichkeit fehlt oder die Moka-Leute einfach sparen... Das betraf vor allem die Verpflegung. Zum Frühstück gibt es leider weder Obst noch Joghurt oder Honig; von Wurt, Käse oder Eiern ganz zu schweigen! Und natürlich, im Süden frühstückt man nicht soooo ausgibig, aber wenn man morgens 2 Stunden gesurft hat, knurrt der Magen ganz schön! So gesehen, würde ich sagen, dass das Essen hier nicht zu einem Sport-Urlaub passt. Und, glaubt mir, (fast) jeden Tag Yoga und Surfen verbraucht schon viel Energie. (Als ich die Moka-Leute freundlich darauf hinwies, schienen sie eher etwas beleidigt... Ich vermute also nicht, dass sie etwas an der Verpflegung ändert.) Dass es im Moka House keinen Moka gab, war dann auch ein kleiner Running-Gag :-p Was die Lage angeht: Das Haus liegt schon bissl ab vom Schuss; es gibt zwar einen Shuttle, der gegen 11 Uhr vormittags zum Strand fährt. "Surferleute" verpassen den aber in der Regel, weil sie erst später vom Surfen zurückkommen. Wer es sich also leisten kann, sollte ein Auto mieten. Naja, und leider hatten wir irgendwelche Ungeziefer im Zimmer. Da reagierte die Crew aber sehr schnell, holte den Kammerjäger und ließ uns für zwei Nächte umziehen. Leider gab es dafür keine Entschädigung, es war insgesamt aber trotzdem ein schöner Urlaub.

    PROS Pros: Die Atmosphäre vor Ort ist entspannt und das Gelände ist wirklich sehr schön. Auch die Mischung aus Yoga und Surfen ist super. Die Anbieter achten sehr darauf, dass das Moka House sauber und gemütlich ist. Auch die Gäste sind fast alle super aufgeschlossen, offen und toll. Es ist leicht, neue Leute kennenzulernen. Auch die Mehrbettzimmer sind - obwohl klein - schön eingerichtet. Die Yogastunden sind vielleicht nicht super persönlich gehalten, aber sehr profesionell, fordernd und intensiv. Leute, die Yoga regelmäßig machen, kommen hier in jedem Fall auf ihre Kosten :) Die Surfschule, mit der das Moka House zusammenarbeitet, ist auch super. Der Shuttle zum Strand funktioniert einwandfrei, der Lehrer motiviert und unterstützt (besonders) Anfänger, sodass man schnell Erfolgserlebnisse hat! Von der sportlichen und menschlichen Seite kann ich das Moka House also sehr empfehlen.

    Organizer response: Dear guest, first of all thanks for your review: every comment, reflection and criticism is extremely useful for us to try to improve our structure and the service we offer to our guests. To be honest, we never respond to reviews, but since yours is the first critical review in between of dozens positive gathered in 4 years , we have decided to respond briefly with our point of view. -Regarding the refund for the discomfort caused by the case of bed bugs, we did not think to do it just because in our opinion our guests didn’t receive any damages: although we didn’t find any traces of insects, we immediately activated to clean and disinfest the room and the only bother for you and your roommates was to sleep for two nights in a bigger, more spacious room. - About the food, thank you for your observation and we are already organizing to improve ourselves in this field. It should be pointed out however that the fruit was present every morning in the breakfast (every day we serve in the box a jar containing fruit salad) and that the Moka machines are available for guests and in quantity. Only we do not serve Moka coffee in the breakfast buffet for the difficulty in serving so many people with such small coffee machines. - Lastly, hospitality. We are really and sincerely sorry to receive this criticism because we are trying every day to do our best to create a welcoming atmosphere for our guests and to make them happy and like at home. We believe this is exactly what makes us

    The week of the year!

    PROS Pros: Our one week stay was perfect, over perfect if that is possible. Since the first instance, the conversations with Francesca made our arrival easy and comfortable. During the whole week, their drop-off and pick-up to/from the beach and town allowed us to hang around happily, although we also enjoyed just staying at Moka, reading at the hammocks under the sun! The building, amenities and whole environment around the house are a delight. It is not just beautiful, it is welcoming. The Moka crew has built up a space in which in just one day you can feel like home, and that is reflected in the great way everyone relates to each other. The breakfasts and the dinners were just tempting and delicious ... incredible Italian dinners! In our case, we booked a full yoga retreat - with two daily classes plus an incredible massage. The yoga classes were thoughtful and really well led. For someone with little practice, the first days felt like happy pins-and-needles and by the end of the week, it just felt like better postures, better muscles, and much happier soul. In addition, I adventure to some horse riding, which was actually really cool and with a local feeling. And even when we did not think in joining surfing we are reconsidering it now, as everyone seemed to really enjoy it and to feel a truthful connection with the ocean and all that surfing means. For two people, embedded in the overpopulated, never stopping, city drama, this week was paradise for our bodies and minds.

    Lieu idéal pour les fans de surf, yoga et nature

    PROS Pros: Les hôtes et hôtesses étaient très accueillant-e-s, très gentil-le-s. Avant le voyage Moka house était réactif à mes messages. Arrivée sur place, l'un des propriétaires Furio a pris le temps de m'expliquer le fonctionnement de l'établissement, les divers lieux, etc. Une personne bienveillante. Les cours de yoga se sont bien déroulés, les différentes formes de yoga proposées permettaient d'avoir une pratique éclectique et diversifiée, on ne s'ennuie pas. Une bonne entente avec le personnel, avec les voyageur-ses, un petit havre de paix. Je reviendrai c'est certain.

I loved the house, the garden, and the kitchen area. I loved the sitting area, the terrasse, 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 well taught. The best recommendation from my side!"

    "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 one 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."

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!!"

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."

    "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."

    "The best holiday ever. Surfing is not just about surfing. It's so much about the people you meet and spend time with as well! Thanks for feeling like we know each other for years! Thanks for the surf guiding, for so much fun and laughing, for such a great overall experience. I already miss Ericeira, Moka Surf House, and you guys so much. I will definitely come back and I am already looking forward for surfing and laugh with you guys again. Love you and your house. No homo!"

    "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 the ocean and when can I find some time and some good tickets to come to Portugal."
