About Steve and Cindy DuBose
We have been coming to Eleuthera for 18 years and fell in love with the incredible island beauty. It is very romantic and relaxing and we always hate to leave. We hope to spend more time in the future and enjoy making Pura Vida available for others to enjoy!
Steve and Cindy DuBose purchased this House in 2004
Why Steve and Cindy DuBose chose Governor's Harbour, The Bahamas
We built Pura Vida and chose Double Bay because it has one of the best beaches we have seen anywhere in the Bahamas. Actually, we have not seen better beaches anywhere!
What makes this House unique
The tropical beauty is unsurpassed! The coconut palms and colorful tropical foliage are incredible and privacy is very special overlooking the pink sand beach with tourquois water!
100% refund if cancelled at least 60 days before arrival date.
This was our 5th visit to Eleuthera and our 2nd to Pura Vida. Everything was just as clean and wonderful as it was during our last visit. I do not think the pictures online do Pura Vida justice! Cannot wait until our next trip!
Perfect in every way
Coming to Eleuthera for the second time, we wanted a larger more modern house, and better accommodations , since we were bringing 2 of our children along. When we opened the door , Our adult children voiced their excitement at the beautiful home. After that we knew it was going to be a great week! I am not sure what I can add to all the other great reviews, than to say they were right, it is perfect and we couldn’t have wished for anything more! We had so much fun with our children, swimming, snorkeling, kayaking, playing games, exploring, etc. The list is endless! Thanks Steve and Cindy for allowing us to have our best vacation ever!
Pura Vida will rock your world!!!
This is a beautiful, peaceful, comfortable, wonderful house, thoughtfully filled with lovely tropical art and all the comforts of home including books to read, games to play, cozy places to sit and relax, on the most beautiful beach on the planet. Pura Vida invites you, suavely and with great ingenuity, to "Relax, Unwind, and Totally Enjoy" yourselves. The beds are very comfortable and stocked with an abundance of pillows so that you can truly rest well! Sunrise on the deck with a fresh cup of coffee is worth the trip. Then, it's an easy walk down the steps to the lovely pink sand and delightful salt water for a great swim, even for folks in their golden years. The kitchen is large and very well equipped for those who love to cook. Groceries are available within 15 minutes of the house, both at Midway Cost Cutters and The Farm (which has a very nice rum selection, too!) The owners are wonderful and very responsive. Pura Vida was our first experience with Home Away, and we will definitely be doing this again! You can't go wrong with this vacation home!!! Thank you Steve and Cindy!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Pura Vida. The house is lovely: spacious, beautifully furnished, comfortable, well equipped and the setting fabulous. We loved watching the sunrise from the deck, the gardens were beyond beautiful. The location was ideal for touring the island. We saw a lot of Eleuthera, north and south. Enjoyed the beaches, restaurants, and most especially, the people. Would recommend highly.
It sounds like you found the magic and beauty of Eleuthera and Pura Vida!We are really glad to hear you immersed yourselves in the island life and we welcome your return!!

Beautiful property,very clean, great location, beautiful kitchen. Plenty of room and space.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Pua Vida! We can’t think of a thing it was missing. The beach was fabulous. We kayaked out to the larger island. The kitchen was fabulous as we picked up fresh local fish at the docks. The is a very special place. Comfy beds and beautiful furnishings.
It gives us pleasure to share Pura Vida with our guests and a real joy in knowing you have had a time of relaxation and special memories here. We welcome you back to Pura Vida sometime!
This was our 3rd time to rent Pura Vida.Our daughter joined us for one of our weeks there and she loved it too.At first there was no WIFI for several days but the caretaker took care of that.All 3 times we were there the phone never worked.This time my new phone allowed me to use WIFi calling and I have a travel plan for $10/day which I used when there was no internet or WIFI.The internet is awesome if you need to stay in touch with your business etc.or do Zoom calls which my husband had to do once or twice.The appliances had all been replaced this time.Everything worked which we haven't seen always in other rentals.The owner is very assessible as well.Can't wait to go back!
Thanks for coming to the privacy, beauty and relaxation of Pura Vida! Yes, we replaced appliances and many other items and are constantly working to keep Pura Vida first class and up to date. The phone issue has been resolved by the phone co. In fact, they have just installed a new complete internet system and equipment for Double Bay area which is much appreciated. We welcome you back to escape to Pura Vida and Eleuthera!
Double Bay has miles of pristine powder pink beaches and clear turquoise waters. Snorkel the many reefs just off shore and enjoy exotic coral, underwater tropical plants and colorful fish. Ocean kayaking is also a great activity as there are miles of coast line to explore and also small nearby islands and cays. Other nearby activities include local colorful festivals, great fishing(guides available), biking, boating, beach-combing or just relaxing in a lounge chair or hammock. Great restaurants just minutes away. Eleuthera is a great island to explore. There are many hidden beaches you can go to where you have the entire beach all to yourselves. A romantic fantasy come true!
Golf: There is a 18 hole golf course at Cotton Bay which is 35 minutes south of Pura Vida near Rock Sound.
