About Steve and Cindy DuBose
We have been coming to Eleuthera for 17 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 Villa 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 Villa 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!

Fourth year staying there and we are still in awe every time we open that front door. We feel so at home there and are totally spoiled with the property. We had a complete smorgasbord of weather this time and it was beautiful each and every day. The owners have done a spectacular job with everything. It s so hard to leave there.
It is rewarding for us to hear how much you enjoyed your visit to Pura Vida. We diligently strive to make it a beautiful place where our guests can relax and create special memories. Mother nature does the rest. Thanks for coming back !
It will take your breath away!
Coconut Palms waved above us as we wound our way up the driveway to Pura Vida. A few steps up the impressive entrance and we were in Steve and Cindy's beautiful home. We all went directly to the wall of sliding glass doors and stepped out on the large deck and felt we were in a travel movie with the amazing view of the white sand beach below, the ocean in shades of blues, white wave splashing over the reefs in the distance and two small islands inside the reefs and certainly with a kayaking distance. My wife told I had earned five stars but the stars belong to Pura Vida.
Beautiful bedrooms and baths, real hot water, a wonderful kitchen with everything a cook or chef would need, All rooms are superbly decorated and wonderful Cindy's art work make's one want to just slow down and enjoy each piece.
For seven days we walked the beach, kayaked and fished while enjoying several restaurants like Tippy's and the Frigatte. We found plenty of shells on Ten Bay Beach and Cocodemama's beach which made my wife very happy. Like all those guests who preceded us we simply can't thank Cindy and Steve enough for sharing their home with us and providing never to be forgotten memories.
It is a great joy for us to hear that you have had a memorable and special time at Pura Vida. The beauty and relaxation is magical. Thanks so much for coming and we wish you a Happy New Year!
Pura Vida = Pure Relaxation
We spent Thanksgiving week at Pura Vida and fell in love with the Villa the minute we arrived. Pura Vida is one of the best villas we've rented in the Caribbean (and we've rented a lot!). This villa is so inviting and comfortable, meticulously clean, private and very quiet. The kitchen was made for a chef - they have everything you need to make a gourmet meal! The views from the villa are breathtaking and we spent quite a bit of time on the porch reading, relaxing and just taking it all in. Steve and Cindy are terrific to work with and quick to respond to any questions. George was great and very helpful upon arrival. We had a small issue with WiFi but he had it fixed quickly! I highly recommend Pura Vida to anyone looking to get away from it all and relax. As for attractions...Ten Bay Beach is less than 10 minutes from the Villa - we went to that beach several days because it was calmer water and simply beautiful. Some days we were the only people at Ten Bay! Tippy's Restaurant is relatively close and has a great dinner menu. The Buccaneer in Governor's Harbour has a great lunch menu and nice outdoor seating. Thank you Steve and Cindy for sharing your lovely island home with us....we hated to leave but look forward to returning!
We loved the house and the thoughtful touches throughout. What we loved the most though was the great view and wonderful sounds and breezes coming off of the ocean. It was also a very convenient location close to Governor's Harbor and centrally located. We plan to be back as soon as we can!
Perfect island retreat!
This is the perfect spot to get away and have some peace and quiet in the most beautiful tropical setting! The front of the house is almost completely glass and you have a stunning ocean view almost everywhere you look! The master suite also faces the beach, so you wake up to the sunrise over the turquoise water every morning. The house is beautifully decorated and has everything that you need! There are some good restaurants within about 15-20 min and the locals at the dive shop in Governor's Harbor will give you some great snorkeling destinations to explore as well. Highly recommend a half day fishing and snorkeling trip with Paul Petty while you are there! We stayed 10 days and have all said we wished we could be back there now. Can't beat it!
Thanks so much for coming! So glad you had such a great time. You are always welcome back to Pura Vida!
Pura Vida magnificient, just like paradise. We were so happy there and have enjoyed the privacy very much. A beautiful setting with a great overview over Double Bay. All you can hear is the sound of the sea. The house is charming, furnished and decorated with so much love for the detail. The equipment is perfect, the kitchen facilities are excellent, everything is there to prepare the fish you caught or bought at the harbour. It felt like being at home.
The owner Steve and Cindy are very friendly and helpful people, the contact with them is very enjoyable. It is great pleasure to be a guest at their island home which they take so much care of. They are doing very well to make the stay at Pura Vida unforgettable. Thank you very much!
We can highly recommend Pura Vida.
Eleuthera is such a wonderful and unspoiled island with friendly people. It was so exciting to us that to buy fish at the harbour, bread and vegetables at the Island Farmers. A simple life with all you really need.
Thanks for coming all the way from Switzerland to enjoy the beauty at Pura Vida! We are always so happy to hear our guests have relaxed and enjoyed their visit to Pura Vida and experienced the incredible
beauty here! We welcome you back again sometime.
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.
