We were very impressed with SeaYa! It’s Super clean, new, spacious, with wonderful crispy clean and funky bathrooms, great design, excellent bedding and truly wonderful hosts! Every detail is taken care of and from arrival you have everything you need. And if there is anything else you need or want to know Antonio and Maria are so helpful and welcoming. The village of Charneca is charming, calm and very well located for surf, hiking or the town of Cascais. Warming up after a surf in the hot outdoor shower was always a pleasure!
I highly recommend this place and give big thanks to Antonio and Maria!



To my good fortune, Sea’ya was home for 2.5 months of EU lockdown and I could not have been anywhere better. Each villa was immaculately equipped and decorated to the utmost comfort. The weekly cleaning was generous and always spotlessly done. Good quality bed and bedding, outdoor area, BBQ grill ready-to-use, just – perfect. Not to mention the villas are situated right by the Sintra-Cascais Natural Park, which was a frequent indulgence for me. Stay long enough and you’ll experience Antonio and Maria directly at a more personable level.
Really, really good.



La casa es preciosa, mejor incluso que en las fotos. Todo es nuevo y está limpísimo, cosa que se agradece enormemente, en especial cuando hablamos de camas, almohadas y ropa blanca. Hacía mucho que no dormía tan bien ☺❤
Además, Antonio y María son unos anfitriones maravillosos. Han estado siempre disponibles y nos han ayudado un montón recomendándonos restaurantes, tiendas, playas… Por no hablar de la hogaza de pan recién hecho que nos dejaban cada día en la puerta de casa ❤❤
Sin duda repetiría



My fiance and I were looking for a place where we could feel at home near a kitesurfing spot and we could not be happier with Vila Cresmina and our hosts Antonio and Maria. The house is lovely – stylish, comfortable and spacious. Our hosts were friendly, attentive and helpful, and there were a lot of nice touches like fresh bread every morning. We did remote working for a couple of days and found the internet to be better than in Frankfurt! Super fast and stable. There were many places to park our car near the house. And the kitesurfing was great. Overall an amazing experience and lovely stay



We have had a splendid week – very much related to this wonderful house and its very much beloved hosts! Everything was is such a perfect order, fresh, organized and stylish. The host gave us very generous guidance and personal flora of information, it was almost impossible to not look into some of the tips of restaurants and places to visit etc – and we were far from disappointed! We are so pleased to have found this treasures stay and will absolutely come back if possible



Absolutely amazing!! Maria and Antônio are super helpful, fun and friendly. My husband even went surfing with Antonio on the last day haha. There are nearby grocery stores. The apartment is perfect, but the experience is so much more than just staying in their stylish home. We walked to the beach everyday through the trail nearby, it takes around 20 min to get to the Bar do Guincho. Even when it’s cold out, the days are still beautiful and the nature is still worth seeing. On top of that they delivered fresh warm bread every morning best Airbnb I have ever stayed and I hope to be back one day



We had an amazingly great stay at the Sea Ya surf house! It’s an incredible place – very clean, comfortable, and calming. The decoration of the house is very stylish and everything looks as perfect as it seemed on the pictures. It was our first little trip with our 2 months old baby and Antonio & Maria were so incredibly helpful and friendly. They provided us with all the baby material we needed. They are super hosts! We would rate the Sea Ya houses as one of the nicest, best located and real value of all the places we have stayed!



This was by far the best air bnb experience I have ever had. Not only was the house a beautiful and newly renovated villa compound, but Antonio and his lovely wife were better hosts than I could ever ask for. Antonio took me to find great waves spending hours driving me around to find the best waves. He helped me find great deals on equipment and gave me advice on anything I asked for. I would recommend renting the entire villa because wow it’s a nice house that they put their heart and soul into. I absolutely recommend that anyone interested in visiting Portugal look into sea ya, no matter your age or family size, it’s a wonderful place run by even better people.



Great stay ! Very nice and well thought litle house . We stayed with two young children and Antonio and his wife thought about everything we could need for them .. just perfect . If you like to have a more authentic(local) and more nature connected this localisation is perfect because just next to the natural reserve and guincho beach but still not far from to some nice market and restaurant. Finally , Antonio and his wife welcome us with a real « B&B spirit » wich seems to be slightly disappearing with the many agency that manage loads of apartment in Lisboa area.



We absolutely loved staying at António’s cozy house. I would even go as far to say it may be one of the most stylish and comfortable homes I have stayed in! Our host met us as we arrived and showed us around the place, he left a delicious goodie basket of local snacks and was very easy to communicate with during our stay. The house’s interior design was straight out of a chic beach magazine and the location was great! There is a lovely mile-ish path that leads to a spectacular beach. Truly an exceptional way to end our month-long travels through Portugal, I will definitely be back!
