An independent private duplex, part of a large two acre property, with amazing views, a constant cool breeze and a quiet, lush garden.
Amenities on the property include an eleven-meter long, “infinity” style, shared swimming pool, which overlooks the coast with two covered areas next to it as well as plenty of lounge chairs tables and sunshades. There is also a covered parking area outside.
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.
The “Surf Lodge” has two large bedrooms, a bathroom, a kitchen, a living room and porch that overlooks the swimming pool and ocean views, as well as free access to high speed wireless Internet. The first bedroom has a large and comfortable double bed and is air-conditioned.
The second bedroom is on the top floor of the building and although it doesn’t have air-conditioning, it has a large double bed on an open floor plan, which is kept quite cool by a constant breeze from the valley behind it. This top floor bedroom also has the best views in the house, both to the north and south with it’s own private porch to relax.

We had à lovely time at surf lodge utawa. Carlos has is own paintings hanging, and we saw the proceding of à new painting. The place is quite, with lots of relaxing places, and because it is on the hill also à cool breeze. The vieuw is nice with on the end the. The staff is also very friendly. We had à really good time over there.
This villa is perfect! We can recommend it as one of the best place in Bali. In our room there were two terraces with stunning views, with a hammock. Beautiful paintings. Infinite swimming pool with crystal clean water, almost no bleach ! No mosquitoes :)
Carlos is very friendly. He gives the painted map with interested places and beaches and tells where and what, help to rent the motorbike. His assistant, Vincent is also very pleasant.
I only stayed here a couple of days, but really recommend it to everyone who wants to explore Uluwatu.
It is the perfect get-away from the chaos in Kuta and Seminyak! The villa is clean, spacious and very comfortable, the pool is very nice, and the view simply stunning!
merci a carlos de nous avoir permis de finir notre sejour a bali dans un endroit anthentique et paisible.
carlos artiste peintre de talent a l'art de recevoir et l'on se sent comme chez soi.
le cadre est magique avec une superbe vue sur l'ocean.
je recommande vivement le surf lodge pour profiter du vrai bali
Once in a while you come across those very few places where you feel at home right away and feel astonished at the same time by the amazing place and the warmth of the host. Carlos is a remarkable friendly, talented and open person that seems to be loving life to the fullest. We will never forget his warm welcome and his way of sharing good stories, tips and goods. Also, Wayan Adik, a friend of Carlos, is a great person to go with for day trips. We're sure to come back in the near future and enjoy Carlos, the talking bird, the villa and the surf again!
The first days of my vacation were dedicated to serious laziness and the Lodge was perfect place for that. Lots of places to read and fall asleep – with a splendid view! The top terrace with hammock was my favorite. Lots of space and light, and did I mention the view already? And the pool? And the view from the pool? The design is simple, rustic and still somehow very modern. I'd say it was a kind of luxurious, Carlos said it's more like hippie, but we're probably both right.
Carlos was a great, helpful host, which made my laziness so very, very easy! Thanks again!
A throwback of what the real Bali was like before the teeming villas and condotel began to infect Kuta/Legian and Seminyak and ever expanding into Kerobokan/Canggu.
Really pleased this place has retained the natural beauty and simplicity that is uniquely Bali. Complete with stunning views and easy access to beautiful beaches.
Its unpretentious, but yet simple and elegant and a real testament to what Carlos, the artist and surfer, has achieved.
In a rapidly changing world and landscape, the Surf Villa is a hidden gem and may it always be so..
We had an incredible time at Carlos's serene Bali home. It was the perfect welcome to our vacation. The home is a beautiful and unique space that felt like we had our very own resort at the top of Bali with our own personal local guides. Carlos & his son were very generous with great tips and suggestions of how to make the most of our time visiting the island. Their beautiful bird who taught us the local greeting was a very memorable addition to the experience. We can't say enough to let you know if you stay with Carlos, you are in very good hands. Can't wait to go back.
Visiting Bali wouldn't be such an amazing experience without Carlos and his beautiful villa. It's a unique, spectacular place. A house with a soul. Beautiful
And the host is an extremely interesting, deep, talented, sincere and hospitable person. Meeting Carlos was a huge experience by itself.
Carlos, thank you so much for everything!!!
Evgeni, Daniel and Dmitry
