Double Bay estate description

Under new ownership (April 2014) and just remodeled in May/June 2014, Kataluma features many improvements and updates including an additional bedroom suite and a new beachfront infinity pool (photos coming soon). Set on a powdery pink-sand beach overlooking the turquoise waters of the Atlantic, Kataluma is a grand 6-bedroom, 7-bath beachfront estate on Double Bay. This new and secluded 5000 sf home has two levels of living space. The upper level 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, VCR, CD/DVD player, and 10’ movie screen with film library. The lower level of Kataluma features a second living room, second full kitchen/dining area, and a recreation room with 8-foot slate pool table, poker table, and large-screen satellite TV.
Outside, luxuriate in our new beachfront infinity pool, or in our backyard pool on the west side of the house. Lounge in our shady beachside tiki hut, or recline in the hammock or canopy swing. Explore our offshore cays and reefs with our kayaks, stand-up paddles boards, and snorkel gear, or explore the land on our beach bikes. Kataluma has beautiful coral reefs and excellent snorkeling right off the beach in front of the house. Then grill and enjoy your day's catch on our variety of oceanfront and poolside patios and decks.
Kataluma's master bedroom suite, Hibiscus, has a 10’ sliding-panel glass door which provide views of the turquoise ocean water, two cays and pink sand beach. The glass doors open onto an ocean front patio furnished with chaise lounge chairs for relaxing. The furnishings of Hibiscus Suite are British Colonial and the white linens give the clean, crisp feel of a relaxed beach setting. The master bath is complete with two hand-carved marble vessel sinks, a large open shower area, and an ocean-view spa tub.
The upper level of Kataluma has four bedroom suites, including the master. 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 two more bedrooms, including a new downstairs king bedroom suite with en suite bath. The second downstairs bedroom is a bunk room that can sleep six. It is furnished with a full-on-full bunk bed and a standard-width bunk bed. The downstairs living room has a sofa bed that can sleep two more.

Back upstairs, 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 food processor, blender, toaster, 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. At night, candle-illuminated carved stone lanterns by the swimming pool reflect off the pool’s glistening water.

A unique feature of the home is the 1500-square-foot ground level space with second living room, full kitchen, and recreation room with 8-foot slate pool table, poker table, and large-screen TV. If privacy is required, or if people want to get away from the main living areas, lower Kataluma is a great place to go.
This area includes:
• 42” flat screen TV with DVD player and Mirage surround sound system. You may also select the outdoor poolside speakers
• Fully equipped 2nd kitchen with full bar/counter top
• Thomas Aaron Billiards’ St. Croix professional slate pool table with pub table, pub stools and spectator chairs for pool playing enthusiasts
• Octagonal poker game table (54”) with chairs
• Cabana Full Bath – with access to pool area
Staff:
Housekeeping is provided two times a week at Kataluma, Monday and Thursday. If you would like more frequent housekeeping, it can be arranged.
