“Nice Accommodation with amazing hosts and service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 July 2013

Peniche Surf Lodge is a perfect place, as you can enjoy living together with a bunch of nice people from all over the world and also have the chance to find some privacy in your own room whenever you like.
The lodge has nice private rooms as well as one dorm, two kitchens and a comfy living room for everybody to use. There is also a small patio , which is perfect for surfbords to store and wetsuits and towels to dry. But the real highlight of the lodge are the owners Claire and Duncan, a super lovely couple, who show great hospitality, and made me feel really welcome and right at home from the minute they picked me up at the bus station. Claire keeps the lodge spotlessly clean and cares for all the booking and other questions around your trip and Duncan offers daily transport to the best surf spots of the day. Being a really good surfer he knows exactly which spot works best either for beginners or advanced surfers. Beach transfer is 7 days a week, what a great service! Both also take their time to have a nice chat or a coffee with their guests at the beach or restaurant. They also picked us up to watch a surf contest their son took part, great family!
I am looking forward to go back soon!

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!
