The Family

We are Eva and Marco! We grow our roots in skateboarding and for many years our Italian family had dreams of “emigrating” to a place that met our primary needs of life. With slow and relaxed rhythms, everyday waves, good healthy food, surf and skate.
During one of our innumerable surf-trips adventuring with the camper van, we came to Portugal, in Peniche, also known as the “Capital da onda!!” (Wave Capital) and the miracle happened.
We fell in love with this land, the pace of life, the special climate, in short, after much research we finally found our “eldorado”, so, once back in Italy, we sold everything we could and plunged
headlong into our “escape” project…
…And here we are, ready to welcome you to enjoy our little slice of Portuguese paradise with us.

Our philosophy

The basis of our philosophy of life is best identified as Permaculture.And this is why this place has chosen us, in the midst of nature, quiet, Portuguese countryside. We are today at the start of this journey, which we will continue to build and share together with you. Whether you are coming to surf, skate, relax, work, celebrate or re-connect with nature, our goal is to give you an authentic and unforgettable experience to take away.

Kokua means to Deeply Share something. We believe in the power of nature, building lasting connections, creating and sharing meaningful experiences.

The Surfarm

We found a beautiful house near the sea with all the space you need for a large family like ours (we have 3 children 2 dogs and a cat !!!) and we arranged to accommodate up to 12 people with 4 rooms with a view sea, 2 bathrooms with shower, free internet connection, towels and linen, with breakfast served fresh every day in our buffet room.

Enjoy sunny days and incredible sunsets in our outdoor hot tub and swimming pool! In case of rain or bad weather the fun doesn’t stop in our indoor skatepark!
