I've been here twice (once in September and once in May) and it's definitely not going to be the last time.
The people there are awsome! I just love this place!
It's the perfect getaway to relax, to have fun, to meet new people, to surf, ...

I had a brilliant time at Magikvanilla. Steve, Suzy and the rest of the staff are brilliant, and make you feel so welcome. They are very passionate about their jobs and clearly love making sure that you have a great time. The location of the hostel is great and it is spotlessly clean. The surf lessons were great fun and the equipment is spot on too. I have surfed a bit before and it was great because all levels are really well catered for. The facilities at the hostel were great and the BBQ evenings were brilliant fun. This hostel is a fantastic place to stay whether you are with friends or on your own. There is also a good mix of ages too. I am 41, but felt very comfortable here. I am definitely planning another visit. Thank you for a great holiday and even better memories.

Magikvanilla is a great place to stay, find new friends and enjoy the surfer life!
I've already been here twice and it will be a place I'll return to frequently.
The owners do this with love and you can feel it - it doesn't feel like a hostel, it feels like visiting some friends.
You get great recommendations for restaurants, bars, trips (Let's get Lost Tour in Sintra) and Lissabon is close to the edge to discover!
The surf lessons are brilliantly structured, with good and experienced instructors, you have different boards to choose from.

Overall a awesome experience anybody should miss!

Cheers mates!

Magikvanilla is a home away from home - great atmosphere, fantastic location, welcoming people and the perfect environment to learn to surf. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this gem to everyone keen to hit the waves in Portugal.

I had a great stay at Magikvanilla.
I totally enjoyed being there. The surfing lessons were great fun.
The house offers everything you need - a big kitchen, bbq place, hammocks, terrace and so on.
It is close to the town and the beach. Ericeira also offers you some great cocktail bars and seafood restaurants. And don't miss to visit the club ;)

This year was my first time with Magikvanilla and I had a fabulous time! You feel great just by being there and share the days with awesome people. The surf lessons were really great, plus the instructors and all others celebrate your progress with you. I can highly recommend to visit this fantastic place!

Cheers,

I'm so glad that I booked this place. It couldn't be more perfect. The staff was great and the owners really made me feel like I had a house on the beach. Totally recommend it. But I hope they don't became really famous so I can come back next year and on the same rates ; )
