Yes, it’s possible to rent the entire house with 10 persons or more. Our maximum capacity is 12 persons. 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 and drinks and snacks are available throughout the day. Ericeira is filled with high quality and very affordable restaurants. The closest restaurant to Olá Onda is only 3 minutes walking, and at 10 minutes walking you’ll find plenty to choose from.

Are kids welcome?

Yes, kids are very welcome at our place. However, we are not the best place for parents with very young children because we don’t have a kitchen available for guests. In the winter of 2018 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 accomodation for families.

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?ola onda guesthouse view pool

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 opening Olá Onda. We love surfing as well. Read more about us.
