The Mulubinba has two bedrooms, with a view, wardrobe, and a private bathroom; and a living room with kitchen. One of the bedrooms has a double bed and one single, the other two twin beds. If you don’t feel like cooking, you can order special meals at extra cost. Outside, quite spacious, there is an upper and lower deck, both with awnings, a sun lounger and a lounge area. For an aperitif at sunset, you can enjoy the table with two chairs at the stern.
For safer diving, the boat has a wooden platform at the rear. There you will find a ladder that stands underwater to help you climb after a refreshing dip. The boat accommodates five guests at a time. There is no captain since the houseboat is moored and not allowed to sail it. Check-in can be from 3 pm. There is a transfer from Olhão Marina that takes guests to the boat by water taxi. This accommodation is not suitable for babies under two years old, nor for pets.
Ria Formosa was elected, in 2010, one of the seven wonders of Portugal. If you want to rent this peculiar accommodation, you must book for at least two nights.
