It was a wonderfull experience staying at Peniche Surf Lodge! The hosts made us feel at home and did everything to please us. Especially group trips with the other guests and funny chats with the hosts made it very special.

Had a fab time here, great surf, great people! Peniche is a nice place to chill out and catch some waves. Peniche Surf Lodge was a great base camp for that and Claire the owner was just so helpful. Everything was always spotlessly clean and the Lodge was beautiful!

We've traveled in many countries all over the world, slept and stayed in very different places. Well, this one was the best so far, and we're gonna visit them again soon: that's for sure. Everything we needed was arranged for us.. Duncan and Claire always drove us to good surf spots depending on our skills, sometimes Duncan also came surfing with us and helped us out; getting bigger waves, giving tips how to improve our surfing, sometimes he took photos and video from us surfing! Never expected that much... The lodge was very cozy. So, perfect! Thank you!
We really felt like home there.
Inexpensive for what you get!

Thanks to Claire and Ducan for perfect 7 days in Peniche. Good waves, only 5 minutes walk to the centre and to the beach. Duncan and Claire drove us to best surf spots everyday an picked us up again after surfing - you get really good surf no mather of swell and wind direction. The lodge is really lovely. You have 2 kitchen, clean bathrooms and nice rooms. We can totally recommand the surf lodge!

Where do we start?

.... A truely amazing hostel 5 minutes walk from the centre of Peniche. If you're a surfer, there is surf ON YOUR DOOSTEP, otherwise just down the road.

Claire, the owner is one hell of an amazing lady! Her lodge is SPOTLESS! It's beautiful, you feel right at home the minute you step through the door, big smile and even bigger hair!

Claire takes everyone to the best surf spot everyday and then picks you up again when you're all surfed out :)

Because there are private rooms and dorms, you get a lovely mix of guests from all over the world staying too. We made some fantastic friends over the week who we will stay in touch with and hopefully visit!

A place that must be visited! We are definitely coming back!

I have just returned from my surf holiday in Peniche and stayed with Claire and Duncan for my second time. I spent 8 days at Peniche Surf Lodge and can only say that - after a long search for my perfect accomodation while on a holiday- I have found one in Peniche. It's hard to describe my feelings into words...but if I have to be more specific on those then
- I love people who have a passion for what they do and Claire and Duncan certainly are those few people..
- Loyalty and respect
- lovely and super clean 3 storey lodge (I don't know how Claire keeps it so clean?)
- great location if you also want to explore the ancient fishing village of Peniche and have a ocean view on your doorstep
- walking distance to the beaches
- great local food nearby
- I could go all day about this lodge....
ANYHOW...if you do stay there - take care of Claire..-- she works too hard...(tell her to take a break, take her out for a coffee....) ou and yea... if she really likes you then she might even go for a surf with you heheheh... (jk claire).. yet to achieve this level for myself :) heheh

Room Tip: all rooms are great
