beach house rental walking distance to store/pub

We are planning a trip to Eleuthera. We are thinking about the "Pura Vida" beach front house, although it looks amazing, it may be a wee bit out of our price range. We would like a relatively private house but also would like, if possible, to be able to walk or bike to a local small place to grab a bite, have a beer with the locals or something like that. Last year we traveled to Cat Island, loved it, but we had to drive if we left the property. We are open to other suggestions also re: beach house rentals. We fish, kayak, snorkel, cook, etc. We are a group of 4 adults. We do plan to rent a vehicle at least part of our stay but really do want to be able to walk to access some places.

Thank you!

How about adding 'WindChimes' to that list.

Thank you to all who are responding. We will explore the suggestions. Although we will eat and drink at the house 90% of the time, we do want to be able to walk somewhere if we can. Distance is something that we didn't mention before. A 20 - 30 minute walk is perfectly okay. I think that the house that we were checking out is already booked for the dates that we can travel (we are talking March 2015, yup, we plan early). We are looking into another house near Governor's Harbor?

Not exactly low price. The Pura Vida house is ~ $1000 more per week than we spend on our beach house rental on Cat Island. A 20 - 30 minute walk is okay too, doesn't have to be next door. The majority of our eating and drinking will be at the house that we rent. We will drive to explore around the island, we were hoping to be able to walk to bike to the tiny grocery or for a beer and a bite perhaps. Still looking at maps, checking beach house options on line, taking peoples suggestions. We are traveling from Montana.
