About Bobby Was Here

Our mission: give people who stay in Boa Vista an unforgettable time

Hi! I’m Bobby Esther-Mak. I am the owner of Bobby Was Here and live in Estoril Beach Boa Vista with my husband Adilton, our son Sunnery and our two dogs Django and Sticky. I have a passion for hospitality, organizing, kitesurfing and exotic places. All these aspects come together in the mission of Bobby Was Here: to give our guests an unforgettable holiday experience.

What we do

We rent serviced appartments, all located at a walking distance from the beautiful Estoril beach. Boa Vista is a great kitesurf island and we also organise kitesurf experiences for kitesurfers of all levels. In everything we do we make sure our guests have everything they need for a great stay in Boa Vista.

Extra service

When you arrive in Boa Vista, we will pick you up from the airport and drive you to your apartment. We understand that when arriving in a new country you want to know the do’s and don’ts on the island and nice places to be or see. We will give you the ins and outs so you will immediately feel at home. During your stay, I’ll be standing by 24/7 in case you have any questions.

More about Bobby

I’m 25 years old and was born and raised in the Netherlands. I did my masters in Marketing & Economics in Amsterdam and Barcelona. Kitesurfing is one of my passions and I am also a IKO certified kitesurf instructor. I speak fluent English, Dutch, Creol, understand German and am picking up on my Portuguese. Comes in handy with guests from all over the world.

As I said, I like to organize things so you can ask me almost anything. Want to BBQ on the beach? No problem. Fresh tuna from the local fish market? Let’s go! A kitesurf downwinder with rescue? Consider it done! A massage or yoga lesson? How about tomorrow?

Hope to see you soon on our beautiful island!
