Item Description

Come enjoy spectacular sunrise and sunset views from the decks or the loft. Enjoy the beautiful soft sand beach with awesome shelling, surfing, body surfing, and snorkeling on the reef just 50 yards off the shore. The best waves on Guana Cay are just footsteps away from the home. When you are done at the beach, there is a private outdoor shower to rinse off.

Pura Vida features four uniquely decorated theme bedrooms, each with its own private bath for extra privacy and comfort. Each room is tastefully decorated in island flavor. There is a "Sea Blue" room, "Pink" room, "Aqua" room, and "Periwinkle" room. Most of the furnishings are hand-crafted by local Bahamian Woodworkers from the island. Each bedroom opens onto a shared deck through French doors. The cool breezes and the calm water of the Sea of Abaco are beautiful and inspiring.

There is also a downstairs "rec" room for kids to relax and play in safely, while the adults relax in the comfort of the living room.

Enjoy the islands atmosphere by attending any or all of the theme nights the local "hotspots" offer or just enjoy the peace and quiet at home. 

There are plenty of things to do to keep you busy on the island - there is a dive shop with daily trips and island hopping trips and a variety of rental items like boats, kayaks, and equipment. There are restaurants and beach grills, some with swimming pools for your enjoyment, a bakery-cafe and a well stocked grocery store. The beach is amazing and access is just seconds away from the home. Come enjoy island life - like they say "Its better in the Bahamas but its Gooder on Guana Cay."

Perfect for up to eight people. Two rooms have double beds, and two rooms have queen beds. More details, photos and reviews here: http://www.vrbo.com/125704. The item is for six nights and seven days.

Donated by Soraya Chemaly, a feminist media critic and activist whose work focuses on women¿s rights, freedom of speech, and the role of gender and violence in politics, religion and pop culture, and member of the WAM! Board of Directors.
