Maria Saldanha Daun and António Monteiro have travelled the world together, but it was not until they started taking their two children with them that they realised the world was not ready for pressurised parents. Baby beds with no mattresses, kitchens with no cutlery, difficult showers and too many knick-knacks. You name it, they saw it. So they decided to do for others what they would have liked others to do for them, and created Sea Ya – Family Surf Houses in the centre of Charneca, just a 15-minute walk from Guincho. The bought an old house and split it into three separate apartments (from studio to 2-bed) ready to welcome families.
