Carlos & his team were perfect hosts & they could not do enough for you. His Villa, Garden & pool were beautiful & really peaceful. Carlos provided loads of local recommendations & was very welcoming. Really looking forward to the next stay with Carlos
My stay with Carlos was perfect. Im was travelling by myself and on arrival Carlos instantly made me feel right at home and in very safe hands. He was very accomodating in helping me organise my surf lessons and getting a day tour of bali. He even helped me order delivery food when i was feeling too lazy to go out and even brought me some food himself! The nicest host ever!
The cottage itself was incrediably charming. Clean, spacious with a lovely view on the terrace. The pool area was stunning, make sure you get up early to see the sunrise!
Needless to say i had an amazing time and look forward to visiting again soon :)
We loved our stay at Surf Cottage and Carlos made us feel very welcome. Very peaceful location yet very close to many great restaurants and bars. The cottage itself has everything you need. We definitely recommend hiring a scooter as this makes getting around a lot easier. We've already talked about coming back!
Carlos was a fantastic host and what a way to begin our trip! He made us feel comfortable and welcome, the cottage was lovely - very clean and relaxing! The staff were attentive and friendly and the infinity pool was an absolute highlight!
Megan and I loved this place. We stayed in the "Surf Cottage" for 3 nights. Carlos arranged for us to be picked up at Denpasar airport and taken to the Cottage. When we walked out of the International terminal there was a friendly surfer looking driver with our names written on a large piece of paper. It was nice there was no mix up in communication as that's the last thing you want when you arrive for your first time in a new country. When we got to the property. Vincent who is in charge of the staff greeted us with a friendly smile. The place was better than the pictures. Very spacious, enough room to have our surfboards out and all of our luggage. Megan and I were impressed with the neighborhood, it felt really safe. The infinity pool was a little cold, but perfect for a hot day. Probably the best part was the private upstairs you get with the surf cottage. Megan and I worked out and did Yoga up there, overlooking the ocean. The beach is not within walking distance, but it's not a problem because Vincent rented us a scooter for next to nothing. Don't be discouraged by this, because the scooter ride was one of the best parts of our stay. You ride down a beautiful tree covered path that will get you to Dreamland, Bingin, Impossibles, Padang Padang or 8 minutes away to Uluwatu. The scooter had a surf rack too, which fit 2 boards. We stayed 4 different places on our trip to Bali and this was one of our favorite. If you're looking for a surf trip, stay here. It's centrally located between all the surf breaks, Nirmala supermarket and all the organic cafes. We didn't get to meet Carols since he was on another island during our stay, but his artwork looked beautiful. His staff let us put our bags in his art studio while we took the scooter for a last meal and surf. Highly recommend. We will return.
Carlos was the perfect host. So welcoming and helpful, he made us feel like family right away. Carlos's surf cottage is so peaceful and relaxing with amazing views over the Bukit peninsular. I will definitely come back next time
Carlos was such an amazing host! The cottage was super cute and comfortable, but just make sure you bring misquote repellant, I was a misquote magnet. Everything was super accessible and I loved the fact that I could go to a local market and come back to the cottage and make breakfast. You have everything you need here. And Carlos was more than accommodating, we wanted some ice and I don't know how he managed to find us some at 10PM at night. His hospitality was beyond what we had expected. Oh! and Ramona was super helpful too, she set us up with a scooter and thorough information about the area.
