David, a graphic designer, and his fiance Charlie have been living a fast-paced, busy life in London for years. Now that they have a 7 month old daughter, Layla, they've decided to trade in city living for a more peaceful life on the beaches of Costa da Caparica, Portugal. They chose this area because David is of Portuguese heritage and has cherished childhood memories of playing on these beaches as a kid on holiday with his family. He wants nothing more than his little girl to grow up with the same memories and knows that raising her on the beach will benefit the entire family. Costa da Caparica is only 20 minutes outside of Lisbon so they're both hoping to reignite their careers in the city while enjoying seaside living. David, who can work from home, is especially hopeful that he'll find his dream house on the beach. Given their limited budget however, finding space to live, work and provide a room for Layla may be a challenge. Real estate agent Ronald Wayne, a British ex-pat himself, wants to get the young family settled in a home in what he describes as one of the best places to live in the world. Will they get the beachfront property they're after or will budget issues send them inland? Find out when House Hunters International heads to Costa da Caparica, Portugal.
