Carlo’s residence is a stylish and modern place that has been lovingly fitted with Indonesian decorations and furnishing by its owner, Carlo.
With all modern amenities, the comfortable and quiet location among the local community will be a treat for the business traveler or family visiting Bali for a short and medium term stay.
Housekeeping will attend every 2 days.
I and my friends did not meet Faiz in person, but she make it clear that she can be contacted easily through the number provided. Since our flight landed late at night, Faiz helpfully arranged a driver beforehand to pick us up from the airport.
The cleaning lady, Komang, help us settle down when we arrived and gave her number for us to contact. Carlo's residence is nice and a stark difference from our usual stay at hotel, it feels like home.
Overall, our stay in Carlo's residence has been very satisfying. The neighborhood is quiet (Although it might be because it was holiday) and there's a nearby minimart (5 min walk) to buy simple things.
The stay at Bali was comfortable and memorable. We were provided with complementary pick up from Airport to the accommodation. When we reached the accomadation, Faiz and her team welcomed us with welcome drink which was a pleasant surprise. She introduced us to the staff (Komang) and patiently answered our queries about the place and how to use the local SIM (the SIM card comes with instructions in local language only). The accommodation is very well organized and maintained. It has all the amenities to make you feel at home, we even cooked more than couple of times. There is a small convenience store 100 meters from the house where one can find basic stuff. Its away from the hustle bustle of the traffic and so you have an option of quiet holiday as well. Having a bike or car at your disposal is recommended as you have to walk quite a bit to find a taxi. Faiz and her staff were quite helpful through out the stay, all we had to do was message them. Thanks ladies you made us feel at home.
Our stay in Carlo's Residence was pleasant. It's located in a quiet neighborhood and 10-15 minutes to Seminyak area by car. In some mornings you will hear sound of gamelan, from the next door neighbor who was having a practice, it was pretty serene.
The house itself is full amenities. Kitchen are full accommodated. We use the stove for preparing simple breakfasts, fill the fridges with fruits, snacks and drinks and use the microwave to reheat some foods. Mineral water is also provided in the house. They have cable tv, so my kid didn't miss Disney channel shows :)
Beds were comfy, AC was okay and shower with hot water is provided too. Everything were good enough for us.
Although, Komang, the housekeeper didn't come every 2 days as promised, but I didn't really mind because everything was under control. I could call or text her if we need her to come over anyway. Komang even came later after we checked out, so I just put the house keys in the place she asked me to before we left the house. Bali's neighborhood is safer (compares to Jakarta) so it's okay.
I didn't meet Faiz in person, but she's really responsive communicating through airbnb message system, so I think it's more than enough. She also provided airport transport and pick up for free! We used the service on our last day to catch our flight back to Jakarta with pak Wayan as our driver, he was really interesting person!
