It doesn't happen very often that everything falls into place :-) We had that kind of experience during our spring break at Casa Meranka. The place is very attractive and well-decorated, but it's the warm and soft, slow energy of it that will convince you. Margo & Josh were able to capture that and transmit it with care to anyone who's looking for some authentic travelling experience. They know the region very well for all kind of activities, be it beach&surf or city&discovery (they have some good suggestions for parents of little kids, too). Casa Meranka invites you to live outdoors for a couple of days, and reconnect with nature and tranquility! Jo & Kat

Margo, Josh and (delightful) August have created something really special and we loved our time staying there. Casa Meranka is a wonderful space - the thought, care and passion that the family have invested in creating it evident everywhere. We stayed for over a week in Fig tree cottage with our boys and were made to feel so at home that we were all sad to leave. The cottage was well furnished and spacious (particularly the bedrooms both of which are very well proportioned) We loved the shaded communal lounge areas - the boys loved the pool which was the perfect size for them. Everywhere you look there are very creative and unique touches that combine to make the place special. The location is perfect - walking distance to a quiet picture perfect beach and a couple of good local restaurants and within very easy driving distance of the multitude of other beaches on the stunning coastline. Can't recommend enough.

We enjoyed our stay at Casa Meranka very much. Margo, Josh und their charming little son August are very friendly hosts. The spacious apartment (Fig Tree cottage) has a fully equipped kitchen. We especially liked the (shared) courtyyard with swimmingpool, barbecue and many nicely decorated places to relax. From Figuera you can easily reach many different South and Westcoast beaches by car. The closest beach in Figuera is just a 20 minutes walk away. We can highly recommend Casa Meranka and wish to come back one day.

We didn’t want to leave! And we’ll definitely be back. Such a peaceful and relaxing place. Our apartment (fig tree) had everything you need, the communal areas are lovely and the whole place has been decorated beautifully. There’s a couple of little bars in the traditional cobbled village on the opposite side of the road, a quiet, rugged beach 15 minutes walk away and it’s just a short drive to other lovely beaches on the South or West coast giving you lots of options. Margo and Josh were friendly and welcoming and full of recommendations and advice. You couldn’t find a nicer place to stay.

My husband, 2 kids and I spent 3 wonderful nights at the Fig Tree and still regret we didn't stay longer. The entire property is a magic island in its own, where every corner has been carefully and tastefully thought out by Margo and Josh. The place is an abode of peace and a delight for the eyes, where every corner whispers a story. Very clean and spacious, we also loved the common areas outside. Margo and Josh are simply lovely souls, very helpful and full of ideas and great tips for everyone. The kids keep asking when we will return. If you are looking for peace, beauty, food for thought and wonderful landscapes and unspoilt surroundings, we absolutely recommend Casa Meranka.

We spent five days at Casa Meranka and, since the beginning we fell in love with the its calm environment. It is a perfect place to disconnect from the world. It is also very well located. From Figueira, we found that it was very easy to reach (by car) many other villages, beaches and interesting locations to visit and explore. Josh and Margootje were the best of hosts! They were very friendly and helpful. (Keep up the good work guys! :-) )

We had a nice time at Margo and Josh's place. The house is located in small vllage at walking distance from a beautiful beach and we particularly enjoyed not having to use the car. The cottage we stayed had everything we needed and the house has a very nice outside common area. I would reccomend it to who's travelling in the area.

After a beautiful few years in India and the experience from a guesthouse it was time for a new adventure…
A guesthouse/holiday cottages in Portugal!
Josh, me & our little son August went on the journey and found a beautiful spot in South/West Portugal close to the beach…
With all our love and creativity and as much as possible reclaimed, recycled materials we rebuilt the place and made it our home.
This combination of an outside lifestyle, surrounded by nature and a fantastic and diverse surf coast line encompasses a lot of what we are looking for in life.
Also our care and eye on sustainable living and the desire to improve our minimum environmentally impact in life.
With growing our own vegetables, having little lady's laying daily, fresh eggs, making our homemade delights and having a little shop with handmade, reclaimed items.
We, as a young family, are loving it and we hope we can share it with you…
