Interaction with Guests
Your host Carlos is a long time resident in Bali and is supported by Ramona, a German girl, who has been living in Bali for a couple of years. They will be able to help you organizing car or motorbike rental, a guide for day trips around the Island, or advice if you want to venture independently, or any other needs that you may have.
Carlos is an artist painter, as the property is large there is a private art studio. Ramona and Carlos are available to help guests with information or to have a chat. Of course we love to know our guests but understand that they are staying here for other reasons than meeting us. The amount of interaction is determined by our guests.
Located in the Bukit area of Bali very close to world class surfing spots like Padang Padang, Bingin and Uluwatu. Also nearby are restaurants and spectacular beaches. The airport is 15 kilometers away, and just beyond that lays Seminyak and the greater Denpasar area.
Automatic scooters are what nearly all our guest prefer, as they are very easy to ride and only cost 5$ a day.
Cars (we have a large parking area) cost 20-30$ a day.
Car with driver (recommended if you want to explore the island) cost 70$ a day including chofer, petrol and car.
Taxis: Ask the staff and within 5 minutes one will arrive

As in most guesthouses and hotels it is standard procedure to register guests with the local authorities. For this we will need a photocopy of your passport, this is usually done within the same day and Passports will be returned to guests promptly.
We had a great time staying at Carlos' villa which was perfect for what we have wanted.
Description of the villa is to the T; clean and quiet. Carlos, the host, is a very hospitable man who drove us to a nearby restaurant for breakfast on the first day and helped us to arrange for a rental car.
Wayan, the driver, is a very honest, knowledgable and friendly man who had charged us less than the agreed price due to a shorter period.
I would recommend anyone to stay in this villa if they are looking to get away from all the hustles and bustles.
Thank you Carlos.
Amazing location, villa, atmosphere and the host Carlos and his staff made our stay perfect, beyond expectations. The place has everything you need, with the villa, pool and surrounding area encapsulating the laid back holiday dream which made it hard to leave the place to venture out for our days spent there!
Carlos was a kind hearted, genuine guy who was so helpful with anything we needed from directions to recommendations or just a chat. He was always there if need be, yet allowed you to enjoy the space to yourselves.
Nalu bowls and revolver coffee at single fin for breakfast and then the salads at Mango Tree were magic for lunch and dinner!
Would stay back here in a heartbeat and could not recommend highly enough! We will be back indefinitely.

Beautifull place, bukit > rest of bali, comfortable, wonderful place!! I will repeat no doubt!! Thx Carlos and Ramona!!
Quiet secluded beautiful villa. Scooter needed to get to get anywhere... beach, restaurants, etc but easy & cheap to rent through the villa. Ramona looks after the guests and is very responsive & helpful. Will definitely stay here again.
My stay at the Surf Bungalow was memorable and comfortable for a first trip to Bali. While the accommodation is a little secluded and might be difficult to access without a vehicle, thanks to the private transport arranged by Ramona, I had no problems during my stay. The facilities were adequate, functional and represented good value for money. Regrettably, I did not get to meet Carlos who happened to be away in Spain, but Ramona ensured that my needs were well taken care of with meticulously prepared information on where to go, what to eat etc. Thank you for your warm hospitality. A special mention goes to Wayan for his kind assistance, great service and companionship as my personal driver in Bali. I would definitely recommend the Surf Bungalow to visitors who are looking for a more localized accommodation experience in Bali.
As said in other reviews, the surf bungalow is a cozy setup with amazing views and a great pool. It was a perfect place for my wife and I to relax for the three days we stayed. On top of that, Carlos and Ramona are such gracious and caring hosts! They were always on hand to help and provided us with a lot of information on how best to enjoy the area.
On the first day, we were reluctant to use the scooter due to the uneven road leading to the property and tried walking around the area (not recommended). When Carlos heard about our little walkabout he kindly offered to drive us to the nearby mart to get supplies as the area is not a very walkable one (no footpaths, many slopes). We were very touched, but decided to try using the scooter for the next two days. In the end, the roads were not as bad as we thought they were going to be and we explored the beaches on our third day.
Cable TV with a plethora of channels, a well-equipped kitchen (it had a blender for smoothies!) and a cute little basket of tropical fruit made the whole stay complete. It was a great stay, and we’d love to come back!
Magnificent location, full of positive energy and ideal to escape and relax for as many days possible. Carlos is a very interesting personality, and together with very welcoming Ramona made our stay very comfortable looking forward to revisit at first chance.
