Some of our GUESTS COMMENTS:
We just returned from Kataluma and had a blast! Our group included two sets of grandparents and 3 children (9 total)…The house was plenty big for us and had all the conveniences. On windy days, the pool was perfect for the kids. Kataluma is in a central location for exploring Eleuthera... All and all, this Kataluma was everything we wanted and Eleuthera was great!

Our family group of 13 staying at Kataluma in November 2012. We had two seniors, a univ student & two families each with 3 young children (between 1 & 6). It was a perfectly simple and relaxing time. The house is right on a beautiful Atlantic Side beach and we had it to ourselves all week long. We could also drive 5 minutes over to a beach on the Caribbean side or enjoy the pool in the garden behind the house. At low-medium tide it was great for an assortment of activities including snorkeling, kayaking and playing in the shallow tide pools. Several nights we watched movies on the home theater system or played board games. The House Manager was friendly and helpful. He was available during the week when we had questions or needs. We would definitely do it again!

Our family spent 2 glorious weeks at Kataluma. The house and grounds are lovely and relaxing. It is especially nice to have the combination of the beach and the pool and all the fine amenities that are part of this beautifully appointed home. We like to cook at home and enjoy the fresh seafood that we can buy straight off the docks in Gov Harbour and Tarpon Bay...and so the wonderfully outfitted kitchen at Kataluma made that all the more enjoyable. We have rented 3 other very deluxe properties in Eleuthera and Kataluma is, without question, the finest.

This was the most beautiful place I have ever been to. So clean, so quiet, so relaxing, so private. Kataluma Villa was spectacular. You never have to leave the house. It has everything you need...the snorkeling, free diving, fishing is awesome...This is a once in a lifetime experience and I wish everyone could experience it..

Kataluma is an amazing home. The owners were terrific to deal with. They always answered any questions I had promptly. My girls loved the heated pool. They also enjoyed watching a movie on the big screen in the great room every night!

My family and I traveled to Kataluma to "get away" for a week. Kataluma was perfect for that. Kataluma is a beautiful, peaceful home with great ammenities (swimming pool, theater room for watching movies, game room with pool table, grill for cooking out, kayaks, etc). The owners really know how to take care of you. The view of the ocean and beach from the living room and two of the bedrooms is indescribable!

We had a wonderful 11 days at Kataluma. Thank you for opening your house to us. Eleuthera really does feel like home to us. We were very spoiled staying here at Kataluma. Hope to be here again as soon as possible.

We had a fantastic week exploring your islands, beaches and way of life. We loved 10 Bay Beach and Rainbow Beach but the best snokeling was right in front of Kataluma.

Manasseh cooked for us a lot this week. He is highly recomeneded, especially if you have lots of kids that keep you at the beach all day. His food was out of this world, fairly priced and always on time.

Our time spent here was truly amazing. Call Calvin Jolly if you want fish and lobster. He will hook you up and watching him in action is half the fun. Wonderful guide on a beautiful boat.
