Villa Kula is owned and managed by husband and wife team, Karl Cramond & Vanessa Fordham. The couple met in Mallorca, Spain whilst working overseas on luxury super yachts.

As a design and hospitality duo, they have travelled throughout Europe, the US and Asia, managing, catering and interior styling, for some of the world’s most luxurious charter yachts, including the build of the award winning $100 million S/Y ATHENA (the largest private sailing yacht in the world at the time.)

Karl, a classically trained Chef, worked in the capacity of Head Chef.
Vanessa was PA to the owner, chief of interiors, and on-board administrator.

Together, they were ultimately responsible for the seamless day-to-day running of these 6-star luxury residences.

Close to a decade working the super yacht circuit, in the Mediterranean & Caribbean, saw the couple manage countless numbers of high-profile events including:

  • The Cannes Film Festival, Terminator II week long premiere, with hosts & guests: Arnold Schwarzenegger & Maria Shriver
  • Grand Prix Gala black tie dinners, in Monte Carlo
  • Yacht launches at the prestigious Monaco Yacht Show
  • Celebrity parties & luxury destination weddings

In 2008, the coupled decided to shift their focus to the Asia-Pacific region, and relocated to Perth Western Australia, to establish Villa Kula’s Head Office.

The WA market celebrated VK’s launch for bringing a fresh approach to event & furniture design, making accessible a range of purposefully created luxury rental products for the wedding & event industry, never seen before.

A decade on, and Villa Kula’s custom installation projects, have featured in notable beach clubs in the south of France, various super yachts, including a custom beach club setting for the Russian owned, 85m super yacht ACE built by Lurrssen and a majestic Royal Palace in Qatar.

"I feel well qualified in giving my recommendation for both Karl & Vanessa. I’d sing their praises, and have, to whomever will listen. They are spectacular people, hard working & fabulous at their jobs, which by the way, they make look effortless. I’ve been fortunate in experiencing their work & blessed to know them."
