The Sea Office has a wonderful location, it is quiet and you can walk to the beach or the village in just a few minutes. The rooms are really very clean! The internet connection has been stable all week, perfect for working. The host Susanna is very customer oriented, friendly and helpful. And for surfers or those who have been to the beach, there is even an outdoor shower with hot water in the garden. What more could you ask for? We will definitely be back!
The Sea Office is a great co-working place where I stayed and worked. The atmosphere is relaxed and professional, specially the combination of living and working is inspiring. The place is located in the centre of Caparica in a charming house with lots of space, even a nice garden. The host is always helpful and willing to take initiative to secure a warm stay. I can’t surf but the other co-workers who did were happy by the facility’s to store there equipment. It’s a high recommendable place to be.
Great place to stay for surfing, living and working. A few minutes walk to the beach, city centre, bars and restaurants. Owner Susana is always helpful and sharing kitchen and balconies with the other guests gives a great opportunity to meet interesting people. Really nice and welcoming atmosphere. Will be back for sure
I cannot recommend at all. . What were the issues at Sea Office: - Only open 09:00 - 18:00 and closed on the weekends. This may be enough for a remote 9 to 5 job or for going into maintance mode. But not when you run an ambitous global business with clients in different time zones. BIG PROBLEM: YOU DO NOT GET THE KEYS; SO YOU MIGHT HAVE TO AGREE WITH OTHER COWORKERS WHEN TO GO FOR LUNCH AND COME BACK. - It is pretty empty at times, so do not expect a lot of networking opportunities or a motivating environment. - I had stayed already in 10+ other cowork spaces and it is common practice that when you stay for at least a month and you have paid the monthly rate and then maybe stay 1 or 2 days longer the monthly rate is divided by 30 and that is what you pay for extra days. Not at Sea Office where you have to pay the full daily rate. On my last day I got charged the full daily rate even if I was not able to leave the office for 3 hours as the owner went out for lunch and other things (Remember that Coworkers do not get a key). On top she (the owner) made a face because I wanted to pay the 15 Euros with a 50€ bill, simply no sense for customer service. - Complete lack of customer service. It is small details such as not having paper in the printer, telling the owner and not hearing anything back - I had told the owner all the above and she thinks she was doing me a favour by offering an extra day in the end when she actually wanted to shut down the Coworking space for the entire month of December (as there was nobody there). That just reflects the personality of the owner, it always feels as if she was doing a favour when actually it is you the client who pays. Which other coworking spaces simply shut down for September, then open in October and November and then in December possibly shut down again?? Just better to avoid all together then...
