About this property

Entire place

You'll have the entire house boat to yourself and will only share it with other guests in your party.

Mulubinba Seahouse - Barco Hotel

The Mulubinba more than a home boat reflects a unique experience of sleep, relaxation and leisure aboard a true vessel, full of symbolism, history and uniqueness. Anchored in paradise and bathed by the unique waters of Ria Formosa, the possibilities for activities are immense, including diving, visits to deserted beaches, enjoying the sunrise and a stunning sunset.

The Mulubinba has two bedrooms with a delightful sea view, both with fitted wardrobes and a private bathroom, and a combined living room with kitchen where light meals can be prepared with various equipment. Special meals are available upon request and at a surcharge.
Outside the boat has plenty of space with two bimini awnings (top and bottom decks) which ensure plenty of shade, a sun lounger and a lounge area on the top deck with an enviable panorama view. There is also a table with two chairs at the stern of the boat for meals.
Lastly and for a beautiful swim there is a wooden platform at the rear of the boat house that will allow you to dive and climb onto the boat via a ladder that sits in the water. There are also two SUP (Stand Up Paddle) with paid ones available.

RNAAT Registration 881/2019

Mulubinba during November / March will be available at Olhão Marina, for a lighter stay and access to the cultural skeleton of Olhão. An additional fee will be charged if a stay at sea is desired.

Please note that the house boat does not have a captain and is anchored and there is no possibility for them to sail the boat.
From Olhão Marina, guests will be transferred to the boat by water taxi.
