About Owner/Property Manager

Hi, I'm Lucy and my husband is John Hintz. He is a builder in Roswell, GA and also built our home here at 29 Gardens Drive, Freeport, Grand Bahama. We love spending time in the Bahamas. The minute we land and breathe the fresh air we begin the melt down of relaxation that keeps us energized. We have a large family in the states, full with grandchildren too. So we are always busy. The quiet at Freeport is always welcome. Once you experience this you will know what I mean. We look forward to sharing our paradise with you.

Owner/Property Manager purchased this house in 2005

Why Owner/Property Manager chose Grand Bahama Island

It is a short 2 hour flight from Atlanta to Freeport. This is a shorter commute than any drive to the ocean from here. For us, it takes at least 6 hours to drive to any coast from Roswell. In Freeport, the low key island lifestyle is so different than most of the tourist spots we've visited before. When I tell you the property is picturesque, I mean it. There have been 2 weddings at our place in the past year. The ocean view is spectacular. The pool overlooks the ocean which makes entertaining simple and fun. The white sandy beach, and the crystal clear ocean is the most beautiful to be seen anywhere on earth.

Absolutely AMAZING! Even better than pics could portray.

  • 5 of 5
What a wonderful place to get away. Our family was pleasantly surprised to find a beautiful guesthouse, cold beer, water and wine in fridge when we arrived. We all enjoyed having the local mobile phone, the US phone, computer, kayak, snorkeling off the private beach, and swimming in private pool overlooking the crystal clear waters. The beach was beautiful, we spent a lot of time walking and floating in the ocean. The balcony was amazing and we had everything we could need in supplies. Colyn, the caretaker, was helpful and pleasant. I would fully recommend "Due South" if you want higher end amenities and privacy. Quick 10 min drive to grocery store and Lucayan Marketplace. Thank you John and Lucy. We have several friends who were amazed by our pics and interested in visiting your wonderful property.

The best place to stay on Grand Bahama Island!!!

  • 5 of 5
This property is amazing! I cannot wait to plan another trip back to this beautiful property. I was fortunate enough to spend three weeks renting this house. The homeowners are very nice people and are easy to communicate with. They can answer any questions that you have about the island. The property manager does a great job of keeping the house clean and property maintained. Make sure to ask the property manager for fresh Stone Crab when they are in season. From the house you can walk the beach to Banana Bay for lunch and a cold drink. Thanks again!!!

Amazing!

This property offers everything promised in the listing and more! We loved the guest house which is very tastefully decorated and fully appointed. The owner was very easy to deal with and professional and the local property manager was the best, handling our every request quickly and with a smile.
The location is very quiet and peaceful.
We had a great time and look forward to our return asap.

SUPERIOR HOME

  • 5 of 5
We found this home to be an excellent choice for our family. We were greeted by the property manager the first day to see if everything was in order and to help us with any arrangements needed. The home was well equipped and we found the magic jack phone connected to the US was a nice feature, as well as the mobile phone provided. We would most certainly come back to this home.

Paradise

  • 5 of 5
This property is absolute paradise! Very close to great restaurants and the airport. When we arrived the refrigerator was stocked with beer which is brewed on the island as well as bottled water and wine. There was coffee for the morning as well. This was just what we needed to start a very memorable vacation! The owners also work with a local bahamian who is like family to them and I definitely see why! We could call him for absolutely anything and he was there! We wanted fresh grouper, however the grocery didn't have any that day. We called him and he delivered one to us that afternoon....at an exceptionally great price! I can't say enough, but I wish we were still there!!!
