Read our FAQ to find out everything you might want to know about your stay at Olá Onda Guesthouse in Ericeira.
Could you arrange surflessons for us?
Yes, we can. We work together with a professional surfschool close to Olá Onda that provides lessons and rents surfboards and wetsuits. Check out our surf page or contact us for more info.
Is there a kitchen I can use ?
We do not have a kitchen for guests available. We serve a healthy breakfast every morning that’s included in the price of the room and drinks and snacks are available throughout the day. Ericeira is filled with high quality and very affordable restaurants, and the center is only 10 minutes walking. We always give tips about nice places to go to!
Are kids welcome?
Yes, kids of 12 years and older are welcome at Olá Onda. In the future we are renovating the other house on our property. This will be a completely private holiday home, with it’s own kitchen, that will be a great accommodation for families. Follow us on Facebook or Instagram to keep track of this project.
Do I need to rent I car when staying at Olá Onda?
The beach and city center are both within walking distance, 10-15 minutes. So it’s not necessary to rent a car. Public transportation is well organized to both Lisbon and Sintra. However, if you want to discover the region a bit more, and you’d like to be flexible, we advise you to rent a car. For a reliable car rental company, check out our partner.
What happens when I need to cancel my booking?
Try to get in touch with us as soon as possible. Up until 8 weeks before you get a 75% refund, 6 weeks 50%, 4 weeks 25%. If you cancel less than 1 month before arrival unfortunately we cannot refund anything. For groups different rules apply, contact us for more info.
Do you have a common room?
Yes, we have a common area in our guesthouse. It’s where we serve breakfast every morning. You can also read one of our surfbooks and relax on the couch. There’s a fridge filled with drinks that you can buy throughout the day.
What does Olá Onda mean?
Olá Onda is Portuguese for “hello wave”. We’ll tell you the whole story when you’re here 😉
If you don’t surf, is Ericeira still fun?
Very fun! There is so much more to see and do than just surfing. Just check out our adventures page.
Is your pool heated?
Only by the sun.
Can we park our car somewhere close to the house?
Yes we have a parking space in our garden. Also, our street is very quiet so if the garden is full, there are always enough parking spots in our street.
Are dogs allowed?
We love dogs but unfortunately we cannot allow them at Olá Onda because of hygiene reasons.
Who are you?
We are Jasper and Darcie, a Dutch couple that has been coming to Portugal for years and decided to take a big step by renovating an old Portuguese villa into Olá Onda Guesthouse. We love surfing as well. Read more about us.
