"Better than you can expect "

Apart of being fantastic hosts and providing great living conditions and great surf classes, David and Rosa are creating very special atmosphere in Soul Surf House where you feel welcomed and connected to all folks at house. I would definitely recommend this place for solo surfers and companies to stay, chill and enjoy the holidays!

"Never wanted to leave!"

From the moment I checked in, I felt so welcome to the Soul Surf House and really enjoy the community that David, Rosa & Gabby have created.

The people this particular house attracts are all so like-minded and share the same great vibe.

The house itself was absolutely stunning, with a beautiful lounge area, clean & organised bedrooms and bathrooms.

As someone who has an extensive list of dietary requirements, I was able to cook my own meals in the fully equipped kitchen each day which made life a whole lot easier.

The surf lessons visa Search School were soooo much fun! So well organised by David, and SO well produced by the lovely instructors.

The neighbourhood is beautiful, and only a short walk away from the beach & supermarket.

I honestly never wanted to leave & I will definitely be back! Can not recommend this place enough.

"Very nice house, people and surfing! "

The house is really nice, has a great and clean pool and many chill-out spots! The people are always helpful and nice, all in all a good atmosphere!

The surf lessons durate 2 hours and thats enough for one day - really exhausting! The teachers are really helpful and the surfing is really fun!

"Perfect for solo travellers"

I stayed 5 night at the soul surf house and honestly enjoyed every minute there. I booked this camp because of the good reviews (so my expectations were quite high before I got there) and I have to say my stay was exactly as great as I hoped it to be.

The atmosphere was really good and welcoming, it was easy to get to know everyone and find company for cooking and exploring the city. And Rosa and Gabi made everything so easy for us. Breakfast was simple and good (yoghurt with granola and seeds, fresh fruits and bread + coffee and juice). The rooms were clean and the house looks like in pictures.

Costa de caparica is a nice beach with a boulevard with restaurants and so, but if you want to explore more than that you should definitely go to Lisbon (uber/kaptain 15-19e). You can also get to Lisbon by ferry + train, but it takes some time.

But yeah, if you're thinking about booking a surf camp I truly recommend you to choose Soul surf house.

"Nice place to start surfing"

I liked the atmosphere, the attitude of Rosa and David to their Surf Camp and so on.

They never leave you if you have any problem — no matter what it is. They’ll spend a day helping you if needed.

Surfing lessons were good! Waves, of course, differs from day to day, so does the beach where lessons take place. So we had good waves all the time.

If instructors see your progress, they move you to a “green wave” group :) So it was excellent.

I’ll definitely come back again!

"A fantastic experience "

I had a wonderful week in Costa de Caparica. My goal was to improve my surfing and get a week of beach R&R. I can safely say this is exactly what I got and my time on holiday was made even better by the warm welcome and friendly atmosphere I experienced at Soul Surf House. Rosa is such a great host.

"A lovely haven"

Soul Surf House was a perfect surf getaway! The hostel is in beautiful Costa Da Caprica which has an incredible beach, and is less than 30mins from Lisbon. The surf lessons were brilliant, special thank you to Miguel who made it very memorable for 4 beginners! Thank you Rosa for the lovely breakfast, we were fuelled up and ready to go for our morning lessons. Beautiful house, looking forward to visiting again soon!

"Awesome holidays"

Rosa and David were amazing hosts - they made us feel at home and ensured we had everything we needed. Their friendly nature created relaxing and friendly vibes in the house. I loved the breakfast which Rosa has kindly prepared every morning. We enjoyed it all together in the garden before the surf.

The surfing instructors Miguel and Gui were really professional, friendly and patient with us. They explained about surfing techniques and then helped us to practice them.

We were impressed with their knowledge and appreciated their individual attention given to each of us during the surfing lessons.

Miguel’s positivity was contageous - your support has really kept me going! Thank you!

Everyone in my group made progress within 4-5 surfing lessons, even though most of us were beginners. 2 hours long surfing lesson per day was enough, especially for those who never did surfing before.

Keep in mind, that 4-5 days are not enough time to learn everything, but it’s enough time to learn to stand on the board and have some fun! It’s easy to get hooked, so it’s likely you will want to come back for more. During my visit I met surfers who were visiting Soul Surf House for the third time.

Thanks for the amazing holidays, Soul Surf House team. You made it awesome.

See you soon!

"Soul Surf"

This was such an amzing trip! I was so sad to leave. Portugal set high expectations for my travels. Rosa was such a warm and welcoming host, with good suggestions of places to see. Gui gave great surf lessons, and took care of all of his guests in the lessons. I would highly recommend staying at the Soul Surf house.

The host and instructors are very friendly and are eager to help. The facilities are new and it is convenient to live in the area with restaurant having good but cheap local food and supermarket.

I got my flight ticket wrong and they let me stay for one more night and pick me up from the airport. It is really important to have someone help you when you are in trouble. .

¡ Obrigado !

"Good vibes only"

This is the second time I visited Soul Surf an am definitely coming back again. The hosts are just so amazing and attract good vibes with their cheeriness and constant smiles. The surf instructors are very patient and take care of each students individual needs and levels and make sure to find a great surf spot every day based on weather conditions. A great place to visit for surf, laughs and just walking around, have a bbq or hang at the pool, or garden. Highly recommended!

"A perfect week"

My friend and I booked 7 days/6 days surf at the Soul House Surfcamp beginning of March 2019. I had never surfed before and my friend convinced me to give it a try.

The surfcamp is located at the Costa de Caparica, opposite Lisbon, on the other side of the river Tagus. It’s a very relaxed neighborhood, with a lot of nature and 5 min walking distance from the beach. There are lots of bars and restaurants close-by on the pier, which is a perfect place to hang out after surfing.

It’s very easy to get there by cab or Uber (+/- 20-25 min from the airport).

We knew beforehand that winter could be tricky condition-wise but David, Rosa and Miguel put a lot of effort to get us the best possible conditions every day.

Surfing is a lot of fun and I highly recommend everyone to give it a shot, especially at the Soul Surf House because we felt so welcome and at home that I ended up asking myself how I could have lived without it until now.

The house is very comfortable and stunningly decorated. It has a pleasant garden with swimming pool (although I have to admit that I did not swim in it because it was still too cold, but in summer it must be great), the kitchen is well-equipped and the double room we were given was spacious and homey.

Breakfast is delicious with options for everybody which gave us the energy we needed to catch the perfect wave.

Honestly, I had a blast and if you are reading my review, I just have one more thing to say: look no further, you found the best place!

The friendliness of our hosts - they were literally perfect! I loved the fact that Rosa joined us for breakfast each day to facilitate conversation and provide us with lots of useful info about Lisbon and the area.

The location for surfing we were taken to was also perfect - a lovely picturesque beach with bars to have lunch etc.

Big UP to our fab surf coach Miguel he was just brilliant.

You get hard bottom foamies to surf, but they do provide different lengths to match ability, and actually these boards are completely fine. We took our own wetsuits, but they do provide adequate suits if you don't have these.

We ate most evenings back at the apartment and this really worked well for us.

Lisbon is only 18 Euro Uber away with tons of bars, custard tarts and scooters to hire etc.

This holiday is perfect for mixings/socalising and surfing - we LOVED it!

"Well worth the money!"

From the moment of arriving David and Rosa make you feel like family! They only live 10 minutes away so if there is every any issue they are close by. Rosa serves a diverse breakfast that gets you plenty fueled up for your surf lesson.

2 hours is PLENTY of surfing especially if you have little to no experience, you get very tired paddling out to the waves repeatedly.

If your more experienced then Miguel will teach you even more, he's a great teacher and a lovely person.

This was my first time surfing and i'm very glad I chose this camp to attend. I would definitely go back!

They have all the materials for warm and cold season, tons of boards, they are prepared and thats something that I really appreciated as a client of theirs.

Shops near by and bikes available to use for free, it doesn't get much better than this!

"Great place with great instructors"

Every morning the breakfast is just delicious. You get to enjoy croissants, bread, fruits, different kinds of juices and much more. The surfing is amazing and so are the instructors. They help you and give tips and tricks every time they see you catch a wave. Thiago, Miguel and Gui are just the best! Rossa was always ready to help and Gabriella really made the place feel like home.

100% would recommend.

Kind regards, Artuur and Jade

"amazing trip"

I feel so lucky to have found this place, especially for my first surfing experience.

Firstly, I would like to say how great host Rosa is. She is extremely kind and really made an effort to make everyone feel welcome at the house.

I stayed in the 2 beds room, which was super clean and cozy, with a private little fridge and a big wardrobe. Actually, the whole house is great, really clean with a nice backyard and a pool (which is great to refresh after surf lessons or just to chill during hot weather). As for me one of the best things about the accommodation is, that there are bikes available for free which you can use whenever you want for example to go to Lisbon for sightseeing or just to have a short trip to supermercado ;)

I really cannot think of anything what you could wish more to accompany beautiful Portuguese weather, nature, and ocean.

To sum up, I will certainly be recommending the place to all of my friends. Thanks a lot for all!!! OBRIGADISSIMO!

"That was amazing"

It was the BEST trip I ever have! The location is good and breakfast is also amazing. you can have almost everything you needed for a healthy breakfast. Rosa is very friendly, she is the best.

The surf teacher was very nice and friendly.

BTW, you should try the restaurant da Tila and the one behind the House. They are very good !!!!

"awesome place for a relaxing holiday"

The House is more a very nice Holidayhouse than it is a hostel. It has a big living room and since it was not fully booked rosa gave me a room for myself. The breakfast is extremely good, you can lent bikes If you want to go to the City-Center, which is for free. The surflessons were very good, i was a beginner and i learned a lot during my stay. 2 hours a day is a good amout of time, you're getting pretty exhausted.

"Everything was P E R F E C T "

Everything was perfect and so much better then expected. Rosa was the cutes host and tried everything to make us happy during the entire time. The surflessons had been so much fun and the surf instructors were Gui(nius). You‘ll start realizing that you get better and better after a few days, now matter how bad you are in surfing.

Thank you so much, we would definitely love to come back!

"Perfektes Rundumpaket"

Schon vor unserer Surfwoche erhielten wir alle nötigen Informationen. Als wir dort ankamen wurden wir freundlich mit offenen Armen und einem großen Lächeln im Gesicht empfangen. Saubere Unterkunft (wir hatten das ganze Haus für uns 2 alleine zur Verfügung) mit super schmackhaften und ausgiebigen Frühstück inkl. großer Auswahl. Alles was das Herz begehrt! Wir bekamen auch mit Freude immer Auskunft über offenen Fragen und konnten die Räder rund um die Uhr benutzen. Auch konnten wir problemlos unsere Surfstunden vorverlegen, um Tagesausflüge in die nicht entfernt gelegene Hauptstadt Lissabon zu unternehmen. Ich kann diese Unterkunft mit Rosi und Daniel jedem wärmstens empfehlen! Super nette Leute, die einem jeder Zeit zur Verfügung stehen. Rundum perfekt! :)
