"Great surf & yoga"

Lovely stay. Good size dorm rooms with comfy beds & healthy breakfast. Excellent yoga with Laura & fun trips to the beach for surfing. Homely & fun vibes at guesthouse with town centre just a short uber ride away for evenings out.

"Great relaxing stay"

Guincho Wayra House was a super great place. Yolaine and Laura made us feel very comfortable and like being at home with the family. The house is small and has a great view on the hills and the ocean. The yoga with Tina in the morning before surfing was amazing and safed us some more muscle aches. Everything you’ll need is there and the people have been warming and welcoming! We would absolutely recommend this place and will be back for sure! ;)

"Amazing experience"

I really enjoyed the villa because of it’s ambience and peacefulness. This was my first surf experience and I couldn’t wish for better. I loved the bathroom and yoga was absolutely the best I could have in the mornings.

Totally recomended!

Besitos to Laura, all love to You!

"Great vacation!"

The 4 days a got to spend at Guincho Wayra house was so nice. Laura and the rest of the staff (Sol) made me feel very welcome. The house was always clean and tidy, and the house itself was super. My favorite spot was either the ocean view from the hammock or the outdoor shower. Thank you Laura for having me. Thanks for the hiking tips and the conversations. The Yoga and surf experience was also good, even though the surfing condition wasn't the best during my stay. I will be back whenever life lets me!

"Amazing experience in a wonderful environment"

Guincho Wayra House is one of the most valuable places I have ever been in all my life, as it is not just a guest house, but a whole immersive and totalizing experience in a wonderful environment.

The hospitality is amazing and the hosts (Laura and Nestor) as well. With them everyday is a new reborn in a new adventure inside the beauty of this house in the nature, where the house is located and from where you can enjoy one of the best sunset of your life.

Yoga and surf lessons are managed in the best way ever, but beside that, it's the whole experience in the house that makes you feel like home and, at the same time, in a wonderful place with cosy atmosphere, welcoming people and amazingly good vibes.

It is almost impossible to not fall in love, staying there with a lot of smiles and leave without a bit of sadness, feeling like you are going to leave not just an accommodation but a whole fulfilling experience and a family.

Guincho is love, Guincho is beauty, Guincho is energy, Guincho is inner healing and fulfilling, Guincho is probably the best choice you can take for a yoga and surf house, as the place itself is also very well furnished, maintained, clean and cosy.

I rate this experience and place totally 10/10 without any doubt.

"Magic place for regenerate"

It's a peaceful place where all is doing for your wellness. The owner Laura is always here to take car, give advices and tell intersecting storys about the place and the activity!

I was sleeping really well and even if I was alone never find the time long!!

Cascais, Sintra, Carcavelos and Guincho beach are really beautiful places

Really good moment there 😁

"Lost in the nature "

Guincho is a magical place, up to the hills of Cascais. The Wayra house is surrounded only by wild nature, is a really good escape from the daily city life.

You can take long walks inside the natural park of Sintra-Cascais, the beach is only 20 minutes walking from the house and there are a lot of activities suggested to do.

Laura is a really lovely woman, she always look after you and whatever you may need; Mat and Mauro are really good cookers, I suggest you to have a vegetarian dinner made by them, is excellent.

I already miss this place and this little family, the feeling and the vibes of Wayra House are really special! ❤️

Great small hostel with great views and a great vibe. Makes you feel at home away from home. Lots of opportunities for activities as well as time to cool down and be by yourself. Breakfast is great, everything is clean and equipped with lots of details.

"Home far away from home ❤ "

I came with my boyfriend for a week and chose a 7-day water sports package. We had a memorable experience at the Wayra house. We tried out new things such as surf and rock climbing, we watched the most amazing sunsets on Guincho beach but most importantly we made very authentic connections to the people there. Everyone, from Laura and Yolaine, the surf and rock climbing instructions Antonio, the many Joaos :P, Pierre & Matthew, and all the solo travellers who became a family to us this past week! The Wayra house has the perfect setting for people to feel cozy and to meet people, it really makes feel like you are in your own home! Every day is charged with nice outdoors activities and there is no time to get bored! I highly recommend and I would love to go back myself 😊 Thank you Laura ❤

"Such a lovely experience"

A very clean house with super lovely hosts. Very relaxed en open. A lot of space to do you own thing. View is awesome and location is great. Nice little walk to the beach or hikes up the mountains(?) (im from tbe netherlands so everything is a mountain for me :P)

Good surfing beach with nice instructors. All seemingly very experienced.

Same for yoga. Both the external instructor as well as Laura her self know exactly what they are doing.

Yolaine was also a very lovely host who took the time for you and took care of everyone.

All and all a very lovely experience. Thank you ladies!! <3

"Beautiful Surf&Yoga experience"

I want to thank Laura for a wonderful week in Guincho Wayra House. It was a very welcoming and nice atmosphere. The Surf lessons have been well organized and the quality of the Yoga lessons was also great. Laura and the staff have been warmhearted and helpful all the time.

I would definitely book a stay there again.

"The perfect vacation"

The vibe and the atmosphere of the house were just amazing. I have enjoyed staying here so much more than expected as everyone was so positive and friendly. I really couldn’t have asked for more!

This is a very unique hostel, highly recommend it

"Excellent place and experience to break every day routine "

I liked the location of the place and its peaceful atmosphere both within the house and outside. The surrounding is simply gorgeous with the ocean view and the forest. I also liked the decorations and the nice reggae music which was played during the day. It was a really international group during my stay which I enjoyed a lot. The beach is within 5 minute drive which was also very practical. Nestor and Laura who welcome the new guests are very helpful hosts and open to any requests. I wanted to modify my package and try rock climbing beside surfing, and I could change it even a few days before on the spot. We also went out for nice dinners together with the group, which was always a lot of fun. I highly recommend this place to everyone who would like to try something new and adventurous.

"An amazing experience"

The package offers a perfect balans between surf lessons, yoga and just enjoying the atmosphere in the hostel. The whole vibe is just on point with great people, good waves and an amazing location with a beautifull view.

This surfcamp is perfect for escaping the hustle and bustle of the big city. The environment around the hostle is also astonishing. This is the place to be to reconnect with yourself and with nature. It is also a place to meet beautifull new people.

I would totally recommend!

Since the very first moment you check in, both Laura and Nestor make you feel at home. The facilities, the mood, the surrounding areas are perfect for disconect of your daily life.

Eveything is too nice in Guincho Wayra House, from the common areas to the bedrooms. I spent great times in its balcony with views to the forest and the sea and both Laura and Nestor join the guests in their chats and activities so everyone feels included in the hostel's good vibes.

No hesitation. I'll be back. Everything have been good moments in Guincho Wayra House.

"Perfect 4 Day Stay"

We stayed 4 days / 3 nights in June 2020 (so during Corona time) and did Yoga and climbing. Everything was perfect. The house is very clean. Laura is a very nice, we had a lot of fun together. The yoga and climbing classes were both really good and done by professional instructors.

We will for sure come again :-)

"Wonderful stay "

Laura was a wonderful host. She was very understanding when I had to change my trip at the last minute. She was incredibly helpful and provided lots of support. I enjoyed the yoga classes and the surf lesson was incredible. It was a small group and there was plenty of one to one time with the surf instructor.

"Healing place "

Very nice atmosphere, lovely people and great yoga 🧘‍♀️. The environment is gorgeous for walks and the massage and mindfullwalk were very healing. Too bad I only stayed for a couple of days. Next time I will stay longer, definately!

"Beautiful & peaceful "

This was my first trip traveling completely solo internationally from the US to Europe. I loved my stay; it was beautiful, relaxing and so peaceful as a solo traveler. I met so many wonderful people and experienced so many gorgeous views while on my trip. Laura is a truly a delight; super helpful and loving to all of her guests. I felt like family being in the Hostel - I did not feel like I was in a house full of strangers. The walk to Guincho Beach is close and truly one of the most magical beaches I ever stepped foot on. If you're in search of a holistic retreat to unplug and really feel free - this is the retreat for you!

Sarah Sarca

from Austria, December 2019

During my whole stay, I felt totally comfortable and happy. Their house is cozy and charming, the breakfast is super good (especially the view!) and the yoga and surf classes are great! Al in one it was a super relaxing and fun stay.

"I had a good time with yoga, surfing and climbing"

Both staff and house are awesome! Everything is very clean and cosy. The terrace is the perfect location to see the sunset over Guincho beach. The climbing takes place at different beautiful locations with experienced and supportive instructors. You will have great fun and learn a lot!

The hostel atmosphere was lovely. Well kept with nice facilities, staff and attracts a good crowd of visitors (not too 'backpacker').

"Wonderful stay if you enjoy nature and good company"

Guincho Wayra House was fantastic! I loved both the people that stayed and worked there. The views from my window and from balconies were beautiful - a lot of green forest, hills and sea. Everything was super clean and it was a nice 15-minute walk to the beach from the house. Also loved the morning yoga lessons - they were professional and also well suited for beginners. Thanks Laura, Ida and Catia! I definitely got long lasting memories from Guincho.

Carol Pye

from Great Britain, July 2019

The yoga classes and two instructors were excellent. It was great to have morning classes alternating with evening ones. Loved that the classes were small and the instructors gave everyone individual help with positions when necessary. The SUP course in Cascais was daily for six days, and towards the end of the week we were able to do some yoga poses which was fun.

Malin Stål

from Portugal, June 2019

Love this place, was weary welcomeing and loving hostel and owner. I’m grateful to been there, flexible times and great activity’s. Loved the climbing instructors and the climbing place as well. Hope to be back soon!

"You cannot worry at Wayra House"

Guincho Wayra House is a beautiful retreat centre and healing home, full of care and courtesy. The hosts, Laura and Valentina, are simply delightful people, who honoured me by sharing some of their stories and advice for life. I will definitely be back later this year to experience the house, the yoga and the sea again!

"Wayra House is awesome"

Laura, Kasia, Hans, Pierre and all the travelling house mates are amazing. Unforgettable few days, make the most of it. You won't regret, or be bored! Oh and the kite surfing, surfing, climbing, yoga and all the rest is great fun too :)

Diana Vozarova

"Unexpected situation"

The greeting was very nice and warm, the environment itself is beautifully decorated, house is full of light and sunshine, nice terrace and everything very clean. Easy, but nice fresh breakfast, nothing extraordinary, buffet style. Tea and coffee always available to make by yourself. Location good, if you want to get around, youĺl need a car. You will enjoy it here if you respect the 1000 house rules :) And I also think it's better to come during the season as there might not be such a huge focus on everything from the owner when there are more people.

Generally would recommend.


from Germany, August 2021

"Tolle Erfahrung"

Die Unterkunft ist sehr sauber und Laura achtet sehr darauf, dass sich alle wohlfühlen. Es gibt viele Aktivitäten in der Umgebung sodass einem nicht langweilig wird. Insgesamt ein toller Urlaub, den ich nur empfehlen kann.

"Mit Sicherheit nicht das letzte Mal gewesen!"

Ohne große Erwartungen an den Urlaub, komme ich erholt und glücklich zurück!

Bei der Ankunft wurde ich herzlich im super schön gelegenen Hostel an. Die Atmosphäre erinnert an ein großes herzliches Wohnzimmer. Die Unterkunft ist gemütlich eingerichtet und bietet auch tolle Ecken, um sich ein bisschen Ruhe mit wunderschönem Ausblick zu gönnen. Vor allem die Sonnenuntergänge habe ich sehr auf der Terrasse genossen.

Der Yoga Unterricht war abwechslungsreich und immer an die Tagesform der Gruppe orientiert. Vor allem Ida möchte ich hier nochmal loben, sie hat mir persönlich sehr viel Unterstützung und Rat geleistet!

Der Surfunterricht gefiel mir auch sehr gut, es war immer eine motivierende Stimmung und individuelle Rückmeldung, weshalb ich schnelle Fortschritte machen konnte (war nicht mein erster Kurs).

Die Kurse selbst konnten nach Absprache flexibel getauscht werden.

Ich hoffe, ganz bald wieder kommen zu können!

Bis Bald und Danke nochmal <3

"Ein Urlaub für die Seele"

Wenn man Urlaub für die Seele, den Körper und das Herz machen will, ist man im Wayra House genau richtig! Laura und ihr herzliches Team sorgen für Wohlbefinden, Harmonie und das Gefühl, eine Familie zu sein! Ideal lässt sich das energetisierende und revitalisierende Yoga mit dem kraftvollen Surfen kombinieren! Wir haben die Zeit so genossen, dass sie wie im Flug verging und uns viel zu kurz vorkam!

Wir werden auf jeden Fall versuchen, diesen Urlaub bald zu wiederholen!

10 points for the lovelies in the Wayra House!!

Poder cocinar como si estuvieras en casa, la decoración, el recibimiento de los anfitriones y la facilidad para relacionarte con la gente alojada, la ubicación y la oferta de actividades.

"Fantastic experience with amazing people"

the Wayra Guincho house is a lovely house, located in a calm area with a beautiful view and a good atmosphere. indeed, it felt more like a home place than a hostel:) the rooms are nice and the breakfast is good too.

all the activities where well organised and everything was relaxt but challenging in the right ammount and with a good flow & nice energy.

I loved my vacation there very much and will come back for sure. Thank you Laura & staff

"Most beautiful holiday I've ever had"

If I were you - I would definitely book. Imagine a house full of beautiful people inside and out. A house where you have breakfast in the morning with a breathtaking view of the sea. On the one hand, you can relax and forget everything from your everyday life. On the other hand there are many possibilities for activities with professional instructors. I had an amazing time at this Surf Camp and would love to come back as soon as possible!


from Germany, June 2019

"Had the best time!"

The accommodation is really small with only 14 people staying there tops which is really nice as after a few days you feel like your in a house full of friends. The house is super clean and well looked after. There are lots of different activities to choose from and Laura makes sure that everythings runs smoothly also being very flexible and fair if something is not according to plan. She always wants to make sure you're having a nice vacation and gives great advice.

The Yoga instructor Ida was the best one i had yet! Also the massage therapist that came in was just so awesome :) All in all i had a really nice relaxing vacation!

Sarah Jung

from Germany, May 2019

The people were beyond friendly! The area was wonderful- so much to see! I wish we could’ve stayed longer. The surfing and the yoga was much fun and the room was comfy and everything was very clean. I recommend it definitely.


from United States, April 2019

"Peaceful and active - well balanced "

First of all, I have really enjoyed my stay at Laura's lovely house!

It is located perfectly with a view towards the ocean to enjoy the marvelous sunsets. The beach is in walking distance, very clean and good for surfers. Cascais city center and all activities are reached within 15min by car, Uber etc.

All communication was very lovely from the beginning from the booking to the stay at the house. Laura was very supportive via WhatsApp upon arrival.

I had the package of two sessions of yoga and two climbing sessions and highly recommended both!

The atmosphere at the house was peaceful and quiet as I have stayed off-season end of March. The common area is spacious and the interior is chosen with a lot of love. The house is very clean and some rules help everyone to keep it like that.

If I'm lucky, I'll find the time to come again and can recommend it to everyone who is looking for an active but chilled time in Portugal!

" nice place to calm down surrounded by nature +good vibes"

Honestly, Laura and Valentina are angels, super warm hearting persons!! The house is very clean, super comfy, full of positive energy and nicely located within the nature. It´s a very calm place. I wouldn´t recommend it for a "party and surf" holiday, but as it is a yoga retreat - it´s perfect to recover from the daily hectic.

Nadine Rüdisühli

"Wonderful place with good vibes"

I enjoyed my stay at Guincho Wayra House a lot! The surrounding of the house is very peaceful, the breakfast is good, the yoga & surf classes were great and Laura spreads so much love and energy in the house! Thanks again for everything!

"A life changing experience "

My 3 nights and 4 days at the guincho wayra house were perfect. Laura the hostess is an incredible kind and strong person. I loved how she made the house so welcoming. The view from the house is just beautiful. If you're looking for a party house this is not the one.

The yoga teacher catia was just as lovely. Every morning at 8.15 my day started with a lesson from her. Her voice made me very relaxed. I also did the mindful walk, which we did in the hills around sintra. Just beautiful. Thank you for this wonderful stay and I'm planning of coming back. For me this whole experience was just what I needed.
