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.
Our stay at this bungalow has been amazing. The tranquil, peaceful and beautiful place is worth visiting. Carlos gives you all the information you need and we felt like being home and welcome. The ladies who clean your bungalow and the driver became our friends. The personal touch made the difference. Thank you so much Carlos. We hope to see you soon!
We spent five days with Carlos at his Villa in Uluwatu Padang. The villa is lovely, scenic, and close to the best surfing beaches in Bali. Carlos is a gracious host whom nearly everyone on the Ulutwatu Padang isthmus knows, which makes it easy to be cared for well locally. He was helpful in setting up excursions to the interior of the country and to help us experience the real Bali - away from the tourist areas - and to enable us as first time visitors to be enriched by the amazing culture of the country. We would encourage anyone wanting a genuine experience, great accommodations, and kind, thoughtful people to facilitate a visit to Bali to stay with Carlos and (if he's there) is son Falquin.
We stayed with Carlos for 6 nights of our 2 week trip to Bali and we immediately wished we could stay longer. Such a memorable part of our holiday, we were completely made to feel at ease and comfortable in Carlos' beautiful home.
In a peaceful and gorgeous location, it is perfect for exploring the surf beaches and Uluwatu area, and with Carlos' helpful local tips, there is much to see and do, and equally a perfect place to retreat and reflect.
It was apparent to us that Carlos and his son Falquin had a love for the community and in return were well respected.
We cannot recommend staying with Carlos enough. We have already told our friends, and we very much look forward to returning :)
We enjoyed the quiet days here very much! A very good choice to settle down and just relax. Carlis propertiy has a beautiful and very well kept garden with a absolute fantastic pool overlooking the neigborhood - even down til the sea - just wunderful!
Carlos did his best to care about us and our needs and has lovely staff as well!
Thank you very much Carlos for your hospitality! All the best!

We had an amazing time at Carlos' bungalow - it was a lovely respite away from the stress of work in London! The bungalow was all you need - a lovely outdoor shower off an air conditioned bedroom and a terrace where we cooked our breakfast every morning (after going for an early morning swim in the pool!). Carlos was really welcoming - it really felt like we were sharing his home. He drew us a map on arrival with the best beaches, places to eat and attractions nearby which was very helpful. He was always nearby if we needed any help. The bungalow is by the larger house in lovely gardens but is only 5mins by car to Uluwatu and shops, bars etc. We will definitely be back - thanks Carlos!
This place is a true taste of Paradise. The 180 degree view of the Indian Ocean from the infinity pool is a gift to wake up to every morning. The property is spacious and very well maintained. Carlos is the most helpful and gracious host I have stayed with while traveling abroad. He has been helpful since the moment we arrived in the area, meeting us in town and leading us directly to the property. Carlos has ensured that we not only have a great experience at his place, but also have a great experience of Bali as a whole. He helped us rent a car and drew us maps of all the locations we have wanted to go to. We will definitely be staying here again when we return!
