Overview

Double Bay Estate Rental Photos and Description

6 bedrooms, 7 baths, Sleeps 16

Under new ownership (April 2014) and extensively remodeled and expanded in May-July 2014, Kataluma features many improvements and updates including an additional bedroom suite and a new beachfront infinity pool. Set on a powdery pink-sand beach overlooking the turquoise waters of the Atlantic, Kataluma is a grand 6-bedroom, 6½-bath beachfront estate on Double Bay. This new and secluded 5000 sf home has two levels of living space. The upper floor features a vast open-plan great room with 20 feet of sliding glass doors for stunning beach and ocean views. At night, this room becomes a home theater with surround-sound, CD/DVD player, and 10’ movie screen with film library. The lower floor of Kataluma features a second family room, a recreation room with 8-foot slate pool table and flat-screen satellite TV.

Outside, luxuriate in our new oceanfront heated infinity pool, or in our backyard pool on the west side of the house. Lounge in our shady beachside tiki hut. Explore our offshore islands and reefs with our kayaks, stand-up paddle boards, and snorkel gear, or explore the land on our beach bikes. Kataluma has excellent snorkeling on the beautiful coral reefs right off the beach in front of the house. Grill and enjoy your day's catch on a variety of oceanfront and poolside patios and decks.

The upper level of Kataluma has four bedroom suites (2 king and 2 queen beds). Each has its own name and design theme (Hibiscus, Gecko, Lotus, Frangipani) hand-carved on the wooden transom over the door. The doors are recessed into hallways to give private entry off the main living areas. Each bedroom has its own private bath, each with a unique design and style.

The lower level of Kataluma features a new downstairs master suite with a king bed and private bathroom. The second downstairs bedroom is a bunk room that sleeps up to 8 and has a dedicated bathroom. It is furnished with a full-on-full bunk bed and two standard-width bunk bed sets.

The lower level of Kataluma also features a second living room with a 42” flat screen TV with satellite service, and a game room with professional slate pool table with pub table, pub stools and spectator chairs for pool playing enthusiasts.

Kataluma’s gourmet kitchen will satisfy the most demanding chef. A 15-foot center island gives plenty of space for preparing your in-home meals. Or have our cook do it for you!

The stainless steel Bosch appliances include a glass cook top with downward draft ventilation, wall oven, microwave, refrigerator/freezer and dishwasher to facilitate the needs of guests, chefs and staff.

The kitchen is fully equipped with all the accoutrements needed to prepare your culinary delights including Wusthof knives, Boos board, blender, toaster, coffee grinder, coffee-maker, rice maker, crock pot, and a selection of spices and seasonings. Just outside the kitchen area is a large built-in Jenn-Aire gas cooking grill for your barbecue and grilling selections.

If you wish to dine outside, there is a convenient deck situated just outside the kitchen’s sliding glass doors, so that you can enjoy views of the west swimming pool, garden area, the sprawling coconut forest and spectacular sunsets. Adjacent to the ocean side pool, there is seating for 12 at our outdoor mahogany dining table.

Housekeeping is provided two times a week at Kataluma, Monday and Thursday. If you would like more frequent housekeeping, it can be arranged. A cook can be arranged upon request.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Kataluma is an absolutely gorgeous home with amazing views of the crystal blue waters of the Atlantic and it's pink sand beaches. Our family was looking for a private & relaxing vacation, and this home exceeded our expectations. We were hard pressed to leave our own little piece of paradise to explore the island, as we stayed at home most of the time. We did drive down to Rock Sound, which has better grocery selections, and even better prices, including alcohol. A rental car is a must. We drove over to the Caribbean side of the island a few times, and were not disappointed. The views & the water were breathtaking. We dined at Tippy's restaurant once, and would not return. We felt it was more of a tourist trap, the food was mediocre, and prices were high. Mate & Jenny's is just down the road, the atmosphere was more welcoming, and the pizza was delicious. We hired a chef, Manasseh, to cook for us at the house. His prices & food were above the rest, better than any restaurant we found. His conch fritters are to die for! Hiring him was the best decision we made about our meals. The island is quiet & quaint, and the islanders are very friendly. We would love to visit Eleuthera again, and we certainly would love to rent Kataluma again! Don't think we could've had a better week of relaxation, weather, and most importantly, spending time with each other making memories. Special thanks to the owners for sharing their beautiful home with us & to Matt for helping us decide on a home that was perfect for our families.

Amazing stay at Kataluma!

  • 5 of 5

Vacationed with four couples and found the ultimate "chill" oasis in Kataluma. The house is enormous and beautiful (the infinity pool that overlooks the sea is not to be believed) and has every appointment you would need from ample socializing room (pool room, living rooms, front deck, back deck, etc) to a well stocked kitchen. If you're looking to unplug and unwind in a beautiful environment and luxury space, Kataluma is perfect.

Icredible Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 7 had an amazing time at Kataluma. This was our first time in Eleuthera and from the moment we arrived we were made to feel welcome. Everyone is laid-back and friendly.

The house was also welcoming as even though it is gorgeous and spacious, it has a very cozy and relaxed feel. We were all instantly blown away by the house, the view and the attention to detail by the owner. The well-equipped kitchen, comfy rooms with attached bathrooms, heated pool, movie screen, pool table, kayaks and paddle boards, snorkel gear and even plenty of beach towels made for a seamless stay. Aside from the occasional trip to the small grocery store and a few dinners out we didn't want to leave the house. It is a very secluded area and most days we didn't see anyone else on the beach. It's very rare that you have such a beautiful place to yourself. From relaxing and laying out with a good book to combing the beach for shells and coral to kayaking to explore the islands in front of the house, we all had an amazing vacation and can't wait to go back!

The most amazing carribean trip I have taken. Completely relaxing by the pool & beach! All of our dinners out were amazing to the The Beach House, 1648 & Tippy's. Load up on food and drinks at the local market for the days you want to stay in. Plenty to do at the house- Snorkeling,Kayaking,Bike riding and just exploring! Truly a wonderful experience. Thank you Dan for letting us be a part of your wonderful home! Much needed vacation!

Amazing Get Away

  • 5 of 5

The house is just Amazing. My friends and I had the best time here last week. This house has everything you need for your stay. Once you get here, you will not want to leave the house. An added plus was the heated pool for the chilly nights. We enjoyed kayaking over the beautiful Aqua color waters to the small island in front of the house. The Snorkeling and shell finding is one of the funest things available right in front of the house. The locals are some of the nicest people you will ever meet. We're already planning our next trip back to this amazing house.

Perfect house

  • 5 of 5

Our family (five adults and one teenager) rented Kataluma for the week after Christmas. This was our first trip to Eleuthera and we will definitely return. The house is well located on the Atlantic side with a very low traffic beach - perfect for privacy. The addition to the downstairs and new ocean front pool make a world of difference. We spent a good bit of time by the pool relaxing but as soon as we got bored, we were able to snorkel and kayak right off of the beach. At night, we would use the projector and watch movies with the view of the water in the background. Very relaxing and enjoyable stay at Kataluma. We highly recommend this house.

The Perfect Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Kataluma for a week during Christmas this year, and it was absolutely breathtaking! The house itself is spacious but cozy. Located right on the beach, the view by day is magnificent. At night, you can hear the waves of the Atlantic on the patio or even in the living room when the sliding doors are open. We took our 1 year old with us and he had the time of his life in the pool, walking on the beach, etc. We were thrilled because the house included a highchair and a crib, so it made less for us to pack and made for a seamless transition for him. It's a vacation we will never forget!
