Our villa is located in the quiet North of Bali, about 10 minutes driving from Lovina. The house consists of a very spacious living with harmonica sliding doors giving access to the terrace, making it one big living space. 4 Kingsized bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a large, open-plan kitchen fitted with modern appliances.
However, possibly the most beautiful spot is also the least complicated one: the bale benong! The balinese equivalent of the gazebo, located directly at the beach, with a mattress and lots of cushions. Great to dream away at night or for an afternoon nap!
There will be staff at the premises day and night. During the day our housekeepers Eka and Iluh clean the villa; they wash and iron the laundry and cook for our guests; breakfast, lunch, dinner. The price includes service, but not the food. You can do your own shopping or aks our staff.
The gardener looks after the tropical garden and keeps the pool clean, the security, will watch over the premises 6 pm-6 am. Staff doesn’t live in Villa Agus Mas. Sunday is their day off.
The villa is surrounded by a tropical garden of 1650 square metres, with a private pool. The garden has 35 metres of beachfront and hence unrestricted sea view. The beach can be accessed directly from the garden! The beach is authentic Balinese, with fishermens boats and children playing football. You can enjoy a beautiful sunset. An absolute must: set sail at, or even before, sunrise to look for the dolphins.
More and more people discover northern Bali to be a great holiday destination. Famous for its early morning dolphin-watching boat trips, Lovina also offers good snorkeling, diving and trekking in the nearby mountains. Do not miss the opportunity to soak in hot springs and catch beautiful sunsets! With a wonderful variety of restaurants and bars located on or very near the calm beach, Lovina offers something for everyone. It is also a good base to take day trips to the nearby attractions of North and West Bali.
Free wifi, 2 routers
We can arrange pick-up. Taxi service is available in THE village, and public transport stops at the main road, 500 meters from THE villa.
We hope our guests will respect the premises and our staff.
It was absolutely perfect !
We spent 3 magical days of rest and relaxation in Lovina .
The villa is beautiful , the garden is impecable and the pool a delight.
A big thank you to the entire staff who was always very friendly and attentive during our stay.
We all had a fabulous time at Karolien's beautiful villa. Just as in the pictures, it was situated right on the beach, with a good sized pool and lovely manicured garden. We were very well looked after - Putu the driver came and collected us and he was full of interesting facts about the island, in fact we spent a day with him doing a tour of the area. We visited temples, coffee growers, the waterfall and took a hike down to the lake and a little boat across. Ilu and Eka do a super job looking after the villa and Eka's chicken sate is the best we've ever tasted! Highly recommended. They looked after us very well.
Traumhafte Villa und Garten exakt auf den Fotos. Das Personal ist sehr freundlich aber nie störend. Ilu und Ika kochen fantastisch und sind sehr hilfsbereit. Bei der Ankunft um ca. 21:00 haben wir einen Willkommenstrunk und ein Abendessen vorgefunden und sogar an ihrem freien Tag ist Ilu gekommen um für uns zu kochen.
Der Pool samt Terrasse ist ebenfalls wunderschön. Leider liegt am Strand mitunter recht viel Treibgut und trübt den paradiesischen Gesamteindruck. Der Gärtner säubert den Strand zwar täglich, wird der Mengen aber nicht immer Herr.
Im Februar kommt es tageweise zu abendlichen Stromausfällen. Dann ist Romantik pur bei Kerzenschein angesagt. Für Abends ist jedenfalls ein Mükenschutz empfehlenswert, unter Tags gab es keine Mücken. Im Haus und im Garten ist ein recht stabiles und auch flottes WLAN verfügbar.
Der Transfer vom und zum Flughafen war perfekt organisiert und hat auch sehr gut geklappt. Putu, unser Fahrer, steht auch für Tagesausflüge zur Verfügung und hat stets gute Tips für Ausflüge parat. Er fährt sehr sicher und das trotz der sehr herausvordernden Verkehrsverhältnissen (keiner hält sich an irgendwelche Regeln, Unmengen wildgewordener Mopeds mit bis zu 4 Personen und Großgepäck, extrem hohes Verkehrsaufkommen auf der ganzen Insel).
Zuletzt noch herzlichen Dank an unsere Gastgeberin Karolien. Sie hat sich von der ersten Minute an vorbildlichst um uns gekümmert, alles perfekt organisiert, bereitwillig und rasch sämtliche Fragen beantwortet und sich auch während unseres Aufenthalts öfters um unser Wohlergehen bemüht. Danke!!!
Kann diese Unterkunft jedem wirklich aufrichtig empfehlen, sofern man kein Problem mit einer etwas längeren Transferzeit (2,5 - 4 Std.) hat. Rentiert sich aber aus meiner Sicht - es ist wirklich paradiesisch und sehr erholsam in Karoliens Beach Villa!
The villa is really nice, the pool is pretty big and the garden is charming. Our rooms were big and clean, but kitchen itself and kitchen appliances were outdated though. We met with Eka and Iluh, who were truly wonderful and welcoming. Putu (our driver) was amazing and very helpful. We had a gardener and a security guard, who took really good care of us. Pool was cleaned every day. The area around the villa is pretty dead, but we didn't expect to be in the middle of a crowded area, that's why we chose North Bali for our stay. One think to be aware of - the sea and the beach are really dirty and we were able to swim only in the morning. We went to snorkling to the deer island and saw tones of plastic bags in the water. Don't know if it is seasonal, but we weren't expecting anything like that.
What a wonderful 3 weeks we had here! We were 3 adults and 1 children staying here for 21 days, and I can honestly say we didn't want for anything.
The house is exactly (if not better) as represented in photos. There were comfortable bedrooms and a beautifully decorated living room where we spent our evenings
The most beautiful place in the villa was a garden! My younger daughter loved to play here and tried to spend all her day in a pool!
So, the villa was better than what we expected - well maintained and well staffed to take care of all our needs.
The staff was extremely friendly and helpful and was always ready to help us.
We haven’t seen Karolien here but she always was in touch and solved all our problems
As for recommendation, it is necessary to have something against mosquitos (in evenings) and a big memory stick to photograph what you want
We had a memorable stay and would recommend the place
It was a wonderful experience to stay at your place in Bali. The house was tastefully decorated, the views were fabulous and the best part was the friendliness of the lovely staff who prepared wonderful food and took such good care of us. We could not bear to leave the place and felt like extending our stay
This was my first time using airbnb to book a private villa for my holiday. The experience was great. Karoline's villa was as nice as what other reviews talked about here. Therefore, I am not going to repeat myself.
On the other hand, I would like to share my experience with the hostess – Karoline and her team. My girlfriend and I stayed at the villa for seven days. Everything went well. When we left the place and headed back to Hong Kong, upon arrival my girlfriend realized that she left her “anti-aging” gadget in the master bedroom back in Karoline’s villa in North Bali!! (You know, “anti-aging” is a big thing!!!) So, I pushed my luck and contacted Karoline regarding to the gadget. Fortunately, one of the housekeepers did find it, Karoline and her team are working on getting the gadget back to me by the most effective means right now. A great tribute to Karoline and her team!
I just want to point out that, the hardware can be as beautiful, as modern, and as fancy as they can be, but only the software – the people who make the impact and presence!
