A recently built hostel / backpacker house intended to accommodate people from all over the world. Is owned and run by travelers for travelers. The house is quite confortable and modern. Friendly and colourfull atmosphere. Five minutes walking from the beach.
The cliffs, the sandy beaches and islands around, Cape Carvoeiro, and the dunes are all unique and so beautiful that once you leave, you have to return.

Some say there is a ghostly adventurer sailor who visits the house frequently…

The house has 5 bedrooms (some for 1 or 2 people, others for 3 or 4 people), all with private bathroom. Services included: bed linen and blankets, towels, equipped kitchen for self catering (with cooker, refrigerator, freezer, microwave, kitchen towels, etc), BBQ area , Cable TV and DVD player, DVDs, wireless internet, safety lockers, iron/ironing board, local and national information you may need (car and boat rental, taxi service, tour/sightseeing assistance, activities such as surfing, diving, cycling, golf, medical facilities, etc).

Check-in is at 14:00 and check-out is until 12:00 (if you sleep in and happen to stay after 12:00 you will be charged one extra day)
Check-in is possible any time after 14:00 as long as the guest provides information (either by email or phone) of the arrival time.

We do not take responsibility for our guests' personal belongings, and we recommend that personal valuables are kept inside safety deposit lockers. Services not included: airport pickup, laundry service, tours around the area.
Captain's Log House is a no smoking establishment, but guests are free to smoke outside in the garden.

Besides hiring a car you have the following options (1 and 2) to travel Baleal:

OPTION 1 - You can take a taxi from Lisboa directly to Captain's. The journey, by car, takes 1h more or less. Captain's arranges the taxi.

OPTION 2- You can come by bus (there are NO trains to Peniche). In this case you should travel to either of the bus stations - Sete Rios, or Campo Grande, by either aero bus or taxi and take a bus to Peniche from there. The bus ticket to Peniche costs around 9 euros/person. Journey takes about 1h 30min.

Get off at the last bus stop (Peniche bus garage), and we will pick you up there. Please, send a text to (00 351 914602183) once you enter the bus in Lisbon as a confirmation of your arrival time to Peniche bus station... and we will be waiting for you.

Located Near

Captain's Log House is minutes walking distance from several beaches, 5 surf spots, bars, restaurants, cafées, supermarket and cash machine.
The closest beach and surf spot is only 100m away... just down the street... why not bring the morning coffee to check the waves.

It is 4 km away from Peniche, a small town with all the services and shops you may need, and also Supertubos - the famous world class wave, where WSL is taking place every October.
