Our stay was great! Ramona was really helpful, right from arranging for our airport transfer with Wayan,helping us order our late night dinners and suppers and also arranging for transport around Uluwatu! Her replies to our requests were almost instantaneous! The environment ie infinity pool and house is as what was shown on the pictures. Really enjoyed soaking in the infinity pool in the morning and the starry night sky in the night. The house was well kept and clean with drinking water provided. To our pleasant surprise, there were even some eggs, fruits and bread provided on the day of our arrival. We managed to cook using the ingredients provided =)
Dream stay! We absolutely loved our time here. It exceeded every expectation and ours were high. The place was beautiful, quiet and magical! Very private but still super close to all the great restaurants and beautiful beaches. Carlos and Ramona were the most helpful and friendly hosts. Even when our computer crashed, Ramona helped us find a place to repair it. Needless to say, we'd stay here again in a heartbeat and definitely will next time we're there!
Our stay at the surf cottage was simply amazing and it exceeded our expectations. Carlos and Ramona were helpful with anything we required. The cottage is in a private, quiet, relaxing location with a stunning garden area while still close to local restaurants, shops and amazing beaches (especially for surfing). We would definitely book again!
It was a wonderful stayat the cottage.quaint and panoramic view.enjoyed the home thoroughly!away from the seminyak crowds.room was kept cleaned when we were away
Let me start by saying my wife and I have developed a new friend-Carlos the homeowner.
From the start of booking the property all the way through leaving both Ramona and Carlos were absolute joys to work with. They arranged a person to pick us up late a night when we flew in at the airport. Following that there was a scooter with 2 helmets for us to rent for very reasonable pricing. The room and accommodations were exactly what is advertised. The internet was great along with good tv channels which add comfort features when you are far away from home. The pool is awesome! Standing in the pool you have a gorgeous view which we utilized in the day and night with moonlight lighting up the whole area. The property is cleaned and maintained daily by several workers. The house/property is close to uluwatu and padang padang for surfing/eating/ and cultural things like the Uluwatu temple. Carlos and Ramona have fantastic recommendations for everything. If you want to know where to have a drink at sunset or how to get to the coffee farm or anything... they have great taste in recommendations! The driver the arrange for about $70 took us all around UBED which with his local knowledge took us to many tourist things. Bali- outside of the southern area, is tough to drive around if you aren't very aware of local knowledge...so i would recommend booking their transport guy Wayan.
To finish...I can't speak highly enough about Carlos the homeowner. He is extremely friendly and helpful! My wife and I found ourselves drinking wine with him listening to him talk about culture and the area! We will def. be coming back to stay here every year! If you have any questions message them. Ramona is extremely helpful with any concerns you might have. Thanks again to both!!
Wir sind bei Nacht und Nebel ohne Probleme abgeholt worden und haben bei Kerzenschein unser Haus bezogen. Von der ersten Sekunde an haben wir uns Zuhause gefühlt, denn wir sind sehr familiär aufgenommen worden.
Das Haus ist sauber und schön gestaltet. Die Anlage ist sehr verträumt und bietet alles zum Wohlfühlen. Für alle weiteren Anliegen haben Carlos und Ramona gesorgt. Es hat an nichts gemangelt!
Wir würden jeder Zeit wiederkommen :)
