I'd highly recommend The Perfect Wave because they found the best possible surf accom in Peniche... Looking at what's around down there, I was very glad that I'd used The Perfect Wave to find the accom!

It was so lovely thank you. The lodge was just amazing. The staff were great and the room was perfect. The bath tub was hard to say goodbye too!  

We rented a car for the week which wasn't that expensive . I think we may have struggled if we didn't ! We used it to drive to Lisbon which was easy considering

It was just what we needed, we had a really great week.  We went up to Nazare as well but we missed the big waves the day we left which was a shame. 

Thank you so much for everything you've been such a great help!

Overall we found the customer service from The Perfect Wave, especially Victoria outstanding. At first when we enquired with a rough idea of what we were looking for , she came back with the perfect options for us. I was so happy she found the lodge as it was everything it lived up to on the website. Even though we had to cancel our booking due to unforeseen circumstances she was very supportive of our situation. A couple of weeks later when we wanted to resurrect it , she was first on the phone to help and see if the booking was still available at no extra cost. She was so friendly understanding and accurate with her information. I didn't feel like I was hassling her with questions as she was always happy to answer them and help in all situations. I can't fault any of the customer service that has been provided or organisation of our trip. It was everything we were looking for plus more. Including perfect waves and a great luxury bohemian surfers lodge right on the beach!

Perfect Wave Travel were fantastic in organising my surf trip for me! I didn't have to lift a finger. Perfect Wave do the research and organise a fantastic package deal with everything tailored to my needs and desires. It was fabulous!

Georgie (August 2015)
Peniche Surf House was wicked!! Absolutely loved that place. I have done a fair few surf camps and these guys are without doubt the best. From the layout and set up of the storage room for wetsuits and boards to the quality and passion of the surf instructors - it was flawless. Even with the crappy surf conditions all week everyone had a such great time and I improved more than ever with my surfing. In addition to this the accommodation was clean, comfortable and beautifully furnished; the food was delicious; the scheduled evening yoga lessons provided the perfect compliment to surfing; the managerial staff were so friendly and all round great people and finally a blissful massage or two went down a treat! Thank you for all your help in sorting this holiday. I will be in touch for my next adventure!
