Welcome to Parlay at Sunset!
Parlay at Sunset is a large 5 Bedroom (sleeps 10), 2 Bathroom beachfront vacation rental on the beautiful island of Eleuthera in the Bahamas. Located on the calm, clear waters of Eleuthera's Caribbean side you can spend hours playing on the beach, snorkeling in the clear shallow waters or just soaking in the warm Bahamian sunshine.
The beach at Parlay at Sunset is absolutely stunning. The usually calm 'Caribbean' blue waters are perfect for kayaking, snorkeling and diving. The sandy beach is miles long and filled with amazing seashells, large and small, all waiting to be caringly collected and treasured. We have found the most fabulous sand dollars, sea biscuits, urchin 'skeletons', drift wood, conch shells and a gorgeous array of colorful coral and shells - all in our back yard. There is no shortage of these extraordinary finds.
The gently sloping shores of Tarpum Bay and Parlay at Sunset are not only perfect for soaking up the luxurious Bahamian sunshine, but also allow for small children to easily explore the sea and take advantage of the amazing sea life just off our beach. During our visits we have witnessed and enjoyed many interesting sea creatures and exposed our children to sea life that they had only seen in aquariums.
Some of the daily snorkeling finds include sea biscuits, live sand dollars, colorful blue (Dori) fish and yellow fish in our small reefs. Farther off shore, in our larger reefs, we've found varying sizes of jelly fish (none of which harmed us in anyway; we just kept a respectful distance, as any snorkeler should), lion fish, lobsters (or rock crabs, as the locals call them), hermit crabs, a young black tipped shark and a couple of rays. We were in awe everyday at the marvels we witnessed a few steps from our back door.
