Double Bay estate description

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 six 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.
