This was our return trip to Eleuthera, only this time ocean front. Wow!! Kataluma did not disappoint! Tucked away in a private area of Double Bay, Kataluma was truly a hidden paradise. We were greeted by Violet the housekeeper for the grand tour. The house is open and spacious. It has a wall of windows with an amazing view the infinity pool and the Atlantic Ocean. The kitchen was clean and well equipped with an adjacent laundry room which so convenient on the main floor. The four bedrooms on the main floor were comfortable and spacious. Each having a private bathroom. There was a huge projection screen in the living area to watch movies every night.
The lower living area was fresh and comfortable. There was a brand new master suite and huge bathroom plus a private entrance from the garden pool. The additional bedroom downstairs could sleep another six but we didn't even need to use it. The kids played pool and watched TV for hours and didn't disturb the main floor.
Although the house was wonderful nothing could compare to the outside. Two pools! The garden pool was surround by palm trees and was a cool escape from the afternoon sun. We would drink coffee in the morning and watch the humming birds and the heron around the pool. The oceanfront infinity pool definitely had a wow factor! You could sit in the pool and the water seemed continuous with the Atlantic Ocean. I was amazing. I had not enjoyed the water so much since I was a child. My kids loved it! We used the kayaks and paddled out to the cay in front of the house that was awesome. Spent evenings in the glowing water of the pool and listened to the ocean.
We did visit our favorite spots, Lighthouse Beach and Surfer's Beach are always an adventure. The waves this year were incredible! Snorkeled at the house beach and at Tippy's. This year we even saw a stingray.
Went out most nights for dinner. All of our favorites Tippy's, The Rainbow Inn, Sky Beach Club, The Beach House all were great! We even ordered pizza for take out from Mate and Jenny's right down the highway. We cooked breakfast every morning and sat around huge table in the kitchen. We cooked surf n turf on the grill and ate as a family enjoying the Altantic Ocean. That was my favorite.
We were all very impressed with the service and hospitality shown to us at Kataluma House. We would all agree this was our best vacation yet! Thank you Kataluma!
