Interaction with Guests

I am artist painter, as the property is large there is a private art studio (you are welcome to visit). If I am in Bali the time of your stay, I am available to help guests with information or to have a chat. Of course I love to know my guests but understand that they are staying here for other reasons than meeting me. The amount of interaction is determined by my guests.

  • It was a pleasure to stay with Carlos in his beautiful Mountain Villa. The house has a huge backyard with an amazing infinite pool and great view on the island. We enjoyed the location since it is away from all the tourist buzz in Kuta but very close to quite and beautiful beaches.

    Carlos helped with all the questions we had and organized a scooter for us on arrival. We definitively recommend to stay with Carlos for your perfect Bali adventure!

  • We had a great time in Carlos bungalow,When we reach the bungalow Carlos was at the front so we met him and he welcome us, and yes he even drew us a map of where to go which was nice and helpful of him, everything that we need to know was written down as well. He even arrange for us the scooter so the moment we reach we already have our scooter to move around. The place was amazing, it is as what u see in the photo. The room was cosy and the bed was really so good that every morning I just don't wanna get out of bed and plus with the amazing nature's ambience we felt so peaceful and relax. Its a great escape from the busy town like kuta and very quiet at night. All his staff was friendly too and though the bungalow didnt have any safe for us to keep our stuff it was still safe to put our valuables and even after our room is being clean up nothing is missing. He has a good trust worthy staffs. Our stay for 4 nights wasn't enough which we wish we could have stayed longer but hey we will definitely come back to this beautiful bungalow the next time we come to Bali ... Thank you so much Carlos for your help and everything. It's been a great pleasure to meet u.
    Love from Singapore xx

  • Carlos was so helpful from the minute we arrived, to getting to know the area, best places to eat, and even arranged a scooter for our stay. Was always a stone throw away if we needed anything and was always happy to help sort it out, or just to have a chat. His lovely exotic Nias Hill Mynah bird Bill was also fun to talk to. This was by far one of the best and most relaxing places we have stayed in and will definitely be coming back in the near future.

  • We come from Hong Kong and are amazed at why Carlos has got lots of positive feedback here before the trip. After staying at Carlos' bungalow, I can guarantee all the previous comments are real!

    The view from the swimming pool is superb and our room is cozy, contributing to a wonderful relaxing stay in Bali. The friendly staff and lovely bird cultivate a pleasant atmosphere. The villa is very close to the best surfing beaches- Padang Padang and Dreamland where you will be thrilled by the scenic views and big waves.

    Carlos is such an amiable, friendly and helpful host I have ever met in Bali who would make you feel like home and resolve all the problems you encountered. When we found our plugs were incompatible and told Carlos, he went out to buy plugs for us at once!
    Carlos recommended us to visit some places and told our driver to bring us there. Without Carlos’ help, we would have missed those amazing spots!
    Carlos is a talented and well-known painter too!

    We would strongly recommend it to anyone!

  • Carlos was an excellent host, he was very helpful and had even drawn up a map of the area with all cool beaches and nice restaurants, also he arranged transport and motorbike rental which made the whole stay at his place very easy and relaxed for us as guests.
    He has a few wonderful apartments, all very clean with comfortable beds and a little kitchen. There is direct access to a great garden with swimming pool and great views. We enjoyed our stay a lot and I would totally recommend it to anyone.

  • Staying at Carlos' Surf Bungalow was an absolute joy! Not only are his property and living quarters amazing, but we had the best time with the other guests staying there. Perks include $5 motor bike rentals for the day, a sassy talking bird, kind attentive staff, and an amazing pool. Carlos was out of town and we were sorry to miss him, I guess we'll have to come back next year! Five stars for sure :)

  • Carlos was kind enough to make changes and take us in for a few days. It's a shame that we don't get to meet him in person as he was outstation during our stay, however, a thoughtful hand drawn map with all the goodies spot indicated made it easier to explore the area nearby (restaurant,massages,beaches, etc)

    The house itself is amazing (more than what shown in pix), since there's no one else renting the place, we get to enjoy the big swimming pool all by ourselves while enjoying the sunset. (priceless) The staff were very helpful too and even cook us noodles during the sudden power outage (resolved moments later). Vincent was also kind enough to give us a ride to padang beach when he was on his way to sunday church. (Vincent: Terima Kasih)

    All in all, we had a good time staying at Carlos place, and if time permits, we would love to come back for more in near future, hopefully by then i'll get to meet Carlos himself and have a good chat over tea.

    Thanks again for having us!

  • Carlos' place is a gem. It might have been one of those prime real estates in Uluwatu given the location and its proximity to popular beaches. The complex is located on top of a hill overlooking the ocean and I also got to see the mountains. Carlos was very helpful and always made sure that we are well taken care of. He's got an army of staffs who are very helpful and uber friendly. I will definitely stay at this place again next time I am back in Bali. I highly recommend this place.
