Know Before You Go...

Located on the Catherineburg Estate, Hakuna Matata is a wonderful, spacious home surrounded by flowers, palm trees, and lush, tropical landscaping. The owners have stayed true to the natural settings by including native materials like stones and boulders within the construction of the buildings and entertainment areas of the villa. Inside the villa, you’ll enjoy modern comfort with Moroccan overtones. All 4 of the ensuite bedrooms (including the handicapped accessible suite) have outdoor showers and access to the covered walkways and patio. Nearby you’ll find several beaches that offer water sports like snorkeling, scuba diving and deep sea fishing.

Great for families or friends!

Hakuna Matata is a large 4-bedroom, 5 1/2-bathroom villa in the gated estate of Catherineburg. It enjoys complete privacy and endless trade winds from its locale within the National Park on a hillside above Cinnamon Beach.

As guests enter the garden courtyard through the 13-foot hand-carved doors, they’re greeted by fountains and tropical gardens. On one side, the air-conditioned Great Room offers terraces for alfresco dining in a garden setting, or a covered outdoor dining area overlooking Jost Van Dyke, Drake’s Passage, and the British Virgin Islands beyond. The air-conditioned gourmet kitchen is professionally equipped with Sub Zero and Viking appliances, along with complete cookware, tableware, and glassware.

Across the courtyard is the handicapped-accessible and equipped bedroom/bath suite. Similar to the other three fully-screened and air-conditioned bedrooms, this suite has its own bathroom, outdoor shower, and private terrace.

A staircase in the entry courtyard leads upstairs to two more bedroom/bath suites - one of them being the spacious master suite with “his” and “hers” separate baths.

Adjacent to the front terrace is a stone stairway which leads to the pool level. Here you will find the large free-form pool with a shallow area for children, another outdoor shower, a half-bath, as well as the fourth bedroom/bath suite.

Just past the circular driveway, a “jungle path” winds between boulders down to a secret place where children can find buried “treasures.”

Hakuna Matata, Swahili for “No Worries,” is finely detailed with furnishings from around the world, native stonework, Moroccan tiles, and two complete CD/Stereo systems with multiple speakers. Stone arches and columns complete the design and help to frame the Caribbean views.

Villa Notes:
The road is not paved all the way to Hakuna Matata, therefore a 4-wheel drive vehicle is required to access Hakuna Matata. The neighborhood roads are unpaved, and the road conditions vary dependent on the weather. The roads are not dangerous, but can be quite bumpy due to periods of heavy rainfall during rainy season.
