Stunning Villa for Peace, Quiet and Rest

  • 5 of 5

Villa CarakA is absolutely stunning. The pictures do not do the villa complete justice. During our almost 3 weeks on Bali, Villa CarakA ranks as the best place we stayed. We had initially planned on just laying our heads there, but after arriving, we ended up actually spending most afternoons/evenings and one full day just at the villa - wandering the grounds, swimming the beautiful pool, walking the back country roads and taking a nap under the bale. If you are truly seeking rest and relaxation this is the place to go - the staff is unobtrusive and you would never know there are individuals around.

We had most meals (breakfast and dinner) at the villa and the cooking was marvelous. We highly encourage you to partake of the Balinese cuisine. Excellent, excellent meals!

I would say the only negative (and it really isn't a negative) is the cost of the car/driver for the day. All other locations on Bali, a day would cost between IDR 400K and IDR 500K. Villa CarakA was the most expensive at between IDR 600K and IDR 700K per day. Granted this may be due to distance, but considering some of our other trips from the other villas in which we stayed were 2 -3 hours in length each way, we think we are comparing apples to apples. If you have an opportunity for another car/driver, I would recommend investigating.

Lastly, tip liberally. The staff deserve it. Remember, the average salary on Bali is IDR 1.3 million which is roughly US$100/95Euro per month. Putu and Jero (the housekeepers) did an outstanding job in the kitchen and taking care of all of our needs. Kadek and Rico arrived early every morning at 7 to take care of the massive grounds and literally, most of the time, we did not know they were around, even though, we were usually up by 6am. Lastly, Pendi, the night security guard is wonderful. He'd check in every night with us and we would usually end up having a conversation for an hour - discussing our day, life on Bali, his family and the like. A truly gentle and nice man. Even after working from 19h to 6h, he came by at 11 on our departure day to say goodbye and thank us for staying.

If you are headed to the north of Bali, don't mind being off the beaten path and want to disconnect, Villa CarakA is the place for you. We are even already considering our return for a longer time period!

This was the best vacation we had experienced.

  • 5 of 5

Thank you very much for Ger supporting our wonderful vacation on the Villa CarakA.

We were very happy to have an excellent food Putu and Jero made and to drink a lots of the Bintang beer and wines almost everyday. And we have been relaxed and comfortable anytime in the rooms, garden and bathrooms Putu and Jero completely cleaned up.

Thank you very much for Kadet and Riko as a gardener maintained a beutiful garden and clean pool, their friendly smile made us happy anytime. We told them to take care of the heat stroke in the strong sun light for a long time working.

Goody, as a driver, transported us safely and rapidly to anywhere we wanted. We like cute three dogs in his house.

Pendi, as a security guard, came to the villa almost every evening, and talked with each other very friendly and frankly.

This was the best vacation we had experienced before. We hope to come again soon.

Stunning villa set in beautiful tranquil gardens

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here, just one couple, for a fabulous week. We could not fault this villa, position, or staff in any way. it was just the peaceful bliss that we wanted for our week on the north coast of Bali. Nothing was too much trouble. Food was delicious, cooked to order. The housekeepers Putu and Jeru were fabulous. They kept the house beautifully clean and tidy, the gardens were stunning lovingly maintained daily by Karen and Rico . the pool where we swam hours every day was wonderful. We swam from first thing in the morning to last thing before bed. Swimming under the stars was truly amazing! The night watch Pendi was a chatty man at the end of the day. The dolphin boat came to the private beach one morning, and took us to see the wonderful creatures in the sea as the sun rose. Would recommend this trip. . Even if you didn't see the dolphins ( which we'd did) watching the sun rise from the mirror like sea was stunning. Thank you Ger for letting us stay in your beautiful home. We will be back Nigel and Jane !!!! Xx

Een fantastische villa op een sublieme locatie

  • 5 of 5

Een geweldige villa met een droom uitzicht. Het zwembad is groot en is een heerlijke plaats om te zitten. Uitzicht is ongekend en het personeel legt je in de watten. Het interieur is smaakvol en de architectuur is verrassend. Ons verblijf kon niet beter. Met 3 families hebben zijn we volledig tot rust gekomen.

Great time at villa Caraka

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves at villa caraka. The sound of the ocean while reading in the palapa or floating in the pool was great. The staff was very friendly and helpful, especially by attending to our needs but not being underfoot. We had massages everyday either with out service to the villa or a short trip to the wonderful zen(5 minutes). Gede is a wonderful driver and although not a conversationalist , he was helpful and did as we wished happily and even had local wine delivered by his children.

If you are coming to Bali to swim and walk the beach you should do more research as this may not be for you due to trash on the beach. But of on the other hand you like quiet easy luxury for a low price and just want to reboot or relax, this is the place for you.

Mark and Ruthie,

Meer dan perfecte vakantievilla!

  • 5 of 5

Samen met mijn man en ouders zijn wij een week in deze prachtige villa geweest. Al bij aankomst wordt je verrast door een prachtig grote tuin, een hartelijk welkom van het personeel en een oase aan rust. De eigenaar heft aan alles gedacht en er komt zelfs dagelijks een (Nederlands sprekende) dame langs om te zien of alles nog naar wens is en of ze kan helpen met het uitzoeken van leuke trips. Het huis is van alle gemakken (en meer) voorzien en er zijn veel gezellige zitplekjes zodat je met elkaar kunt zitten, of juist de rust kunt opzoeken. De kokinnen zijn werkelijk geweldig, alles wat ze klaarmaken is heerlijk en ze houden het huis goed schoon. Je hebt vanuit de achtertuin een vrij uitzicht op de zee, we hebben zelfs dolfijnen zien zwemmen vanuit het huis! Er zijn veel dingen te doen in de omgeving, zo hebben wij gesnorkeld, uit eten gegaan, waterval en tempel bezocht etc. Ik zou dit huis absoluut aan iedereen aanraden die op zoek is naar luxe, ontspanning en een prachtige omgeving, maar die niet in de buurt van de toeristische plaatsen wil zitten.

Owner's Response: Heel veel dank Charlotte en Job voor jullie beoordeling. Jullie hebben het getroffen doordat jullie vanaf de veranda dolfijnen hebben gespot. Meestal is daar een zeer vroege (06.00 uur in de ochtend) tocht met een vissersbootje vanaf het strand voor de villa voor nodig. Het snorkelen bij Permuteran is een groot onderwaterfeest. Nogmaals heel veel dank en de staf hoopt jullie nog eens een keer in Villa CarakA te mogen verwelkomen. Ger
