About us

Since December 2021

We are Sjoerd and Dorien van den Akker and proud owners of Guesthouse Releash Aljezur. In 2017, we dreamed of running a guesthouse abroad. After many trips and visits to different places in Portugal, we fell in love with the village of Aljezur. And in 2021 we came across this beautiful house. Our dream is a reality now and we can't wait to offer you an unforgettable stay.

Check-in & Check-out

Check-in is possible with us between 4PM and 6PM. We ask you to check out before 10AM. If you have different check-in or check out times please consult us. We would be happy to look at the possibilities.



A cancellation up to 8 weeks prior to arrival, the costs will be 50% of the total amount. Up to 2 weeks prior to arrival 75%. If the cancellation is within 2 weeks prior to arrival there would be no refund.

Quiet hours

To give everyone his or her deserved night's rest, we ask our guests to be quiet between 11PM and 7AM. If you do experience nuisance, please report this immediately so that we can solve this for you.


Payment method

Payment for your stay is in advance via an invoice. You can pay the costs that you make during your stay in cash. The ATM is around the corner.


Releash is perfectly centrally located. At 200 meters from the pleasant village square with several restaurants and terraces. The supermarket is within walking distance and within a 10-minute drive you are on the beach.

If you stay with us for a week, you will receive the 7th night as a gift! This is only possible when you book through our site. And is settled on the invoice.
