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.
There are three staff members who take care of the housekeeping and maintain the property they work on a permanent basis six days a week, excluding major holidays. They are friendly and quite approachable.
We have a car and driver that can be arranged for airport pickup.
Locally there are plenty of services available; we have put together a bit of information about them in a guidebook that will be available to you upon your arrival.
To list a few:
Motorbike and car rental (essential for getting around)
Supermarkets and general stores
Surf schools, yoga centers, a massage service
A local guide for day trips to see the sights in Bali
We have 4 spaces in the property...
Each one is very private with AC bedroom, kitchen and living, cable TV, Bathroom and porch. High speed WIFI…
Swimming pool and gardens are to share with other guests, however even if we are fully booked it is always really quiet on the property, as most of the guests go to the beach or have a tour around the island…
Most of our guests are young couples in their 20's-30's…
Interaction with Guests
Carlos is an artist painter, as the property is large there is a private art studio (you are welcome to visit). If Carlos and Ramona are in Bali the time of your stay, we 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 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 6$ a day.
Cars (we have a large parking area) cost 20$ a day.
Car with driver (recomended 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
Other Things to Note
Check-in is at 12pm; check-out time is 11am.
If you want to stay in the property till your departure, we provide a room to keep your luggage save and a bathroom to use.
Visits within each individual living space are welcome. The swimming pool and garden area is for in house guests only. We like to keep this area relaxing so that all guests can share and enjoy it.
We keep the property quiet and relaxing for all guests, this means that we don't allow loud music or parties.
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 and a copy of your Visa on arrival. This is usually done within the same day and Passports will be returned to guests promptly.
Nous avons séjourné chez Carlos pour nos trois derniers jours à Bali. Le logement était conforme aux photos et très agréable, calme et bien placé (à moins de 10 minutes en voiture de très jolies plages). Carlos nous a accueillis chaleureusement et s'est montré disponible pour répondre à nos questions. A refaire !
I am hesitant to recommend Surf House, Carlos and Ramona, as others will choose to stay and we may then have trouble booking our next holiday.
At the risk of raising unreasonable expectations I do want to acknowledge Carlos and Ramona. A couple of characters who don't impose, but when you need them they are there and extremely helpful.
The accommodation is neat tidy and well serviced. The location is in ideal with great views, however the value in the location has some transport implications as hire of a car or scooter and or taxi will be necessary. All of which are a reasonable cost.
Thank you Carlos and Ramona.
See you next time.
We had a great stay. It is a lovely place and very quiet. This place is definitely one that I would like to return to.
Thank you Ramona and Carlos for your kind hospitality.
I am lacking the words when I describe my experience in Bali and especially in Carlos Villa. It was our first time in Bali and I had come together with my mum. Carlos had guided us along to hot spots in Bali. He was very helpful and generous. I wanted my mum to have the best time and a relaxing experience and after a tiring day of roaming around, the dip in the infinity pool was amazing, especially with the night over view of Bali. Carlos and his staff had made us delicious chicken curry on our last day of trip. Thank you Carlo and the rest. We truly had an unforgettable time. Book this place without second thoughts.
Our hosts Carlos & Ramona where very nice and welcoming. Villa is simply awesome! Lots of space, gorgeous view, huge swimming pool, very beautiful garden and Beo, of course! Location is very good, you have almost anything you need in a few minutes drive by scooter. Many beautiful beaches and cafes with tasty food. It is a very comfortable and relaxing place, with warm atmosphere. We had wonderful time here. Thank you for having us!
Carlos and Ramona are easily the nicest hosts I've met in all my airbnb experiences. They're very informative about almost everything. If you have encountered any problems at all, just tell them and everything gets solved. I've had gastric and diarrhea while I was there and Carlos offered to help me get medicine from the pharmacy. Ramona has contributed a lot of the nearby trusted pharmacies if I needed any medicine. What would I do without them. They're the Superhost! The house is clean and so is the pool. And did I mentioned it has an awesome view? =) If you need to explore all the beautiful beaches, this is the place to stay. The only thing is that there are a few geckos in the house but it's a norm in bali and it didn't do anything to us. I'll definately be back if I come back to bali again. Thank you Carlos and Ramona for being such kind and great hosts!
