Found the Lisbon Surf House online via surf holidays.com and I have to say I loved my stay here. Nuno & Susannah were very welcoming and I had an amazing break!
The house is easy to get to via public transport typically taking 90 minutes from airport to front door (but Nuno can pick you up for around €40). The metro and train costs around €5.
We had a private double room at the front of the house overlooking the road. The windows closed so it wasn't noisy and we could sleep. Some of the rooms at the back were noisier though as the train track was at the bottom of the garden and trains run 0400-0200!
Our room was clean and the bed comfy. Breakfast was served daily and consisted of bread, cheese, ham & jams plus yoghurt & cornflakes. The bonus was freshly squeezed orange juice every morning.
Surf lessons were great - the instructors passionate and helped give tips.
There were only a few restaurants in the LSH area but we easily got the train to Alcantara as there were an abundance of restaurants underneath the big red bridge!
Would definitely return in the future as we had an amazing time!
