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 Freeport
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.

Very much enjoyed the privacy. Everything was kept very well. Finding the property was very difficult as the location did not match the VRBO map.
Exceptional property, wonderful in every respect.... Clean, private and very well maintained. We only saw a few people during our 2 week stay at the property. We didn't have a car for transportation, but Colyn was very helpful in taking us wherever we need to go. Banana Bay is a short distance away and provides some good food if you want a change from cooking your own at the house.
We didn't want to leave and will certainly make an attempt to return sometime soon.
Our family stayed here for a week over Christmas. Santa could not have done any better! The home/guest house is right on the beach with just a few steps to the ocean! It was very comfortable for our family of 4 (my son used the provided air mattress) and clean! We did have a few minor “bumps” but the owner and Colyn were very quick to respond and remedy the situation. Colyn was amazing at finding us some of the best snapper which we cooked on the outdoor grill. My son and I used the provided kayak to paddle to Banana Bay a short distance away and we also enjoyed exploring the other way down the beach to the inlet! We didn’t use the snorkelling equipment as the water was a bit rough but thoroughly enjoyed the pool and beach! Lucy was wonderful to communicate with and we would highly recommend this piece of paradise to anyone!!
We really enjoyed it.
We enjoyed staying at Due South. The house you stay in is the taller of the two structures in the picture. It sits behind the Owner's house, but offset a little so it has a view of the beach from the upper deck and lower bedroom. The pool is closest to the beach, between the Owner's house and the ocean. You walk around the side of the main house to get to the pool in front of the main house. We were very comfortable in the house with our family of four. There are two beds and our son slept on an air mattress (there are two in the upper bedroom closet and an included electric air pump) and was very comfortable. The house is very clean, comfortable, and well maintained. The weather was uncooperative the week we were there - quite windy most of the time - so we were unable to do some of the things we were hoping to do - diving, snorkeling, beach camp fire - and we didn't use the pool much either due to the wind and cooler weather. But we made the most of it and enjoyed our stay. We were able to do a little kayaking and biking (there is one double kayak and two bikes at the property). Banana Bay restaurant was great - close by, good drinks and food. We kayaked there, walked there, rode bikes there, and drove there - all very fun. Lots of good walking on the beach. Very few people around - the beach is public so there were occasionally people walking by, but not many. The internet and satellite tv service for evening watching were not always reliable. Colyn, the Property Manager is very friendly and helpful. And we were able to meet John and Lucy, the owners - both very friendly and welcoming. Thanks for sharing your property with us!
Wonderful Place to Stay!
We spent 2 weeks here over Christmas 2017. We had the most relaxing time, the beach was quiet and beautiful. It was home away from home, from being able to bbq, cook our dinners and enjoy nice bonfires in the evenings. The house was clean and very comfortable. Colin the care taker of the home was very friendly and helpful. We arrived at the house late and Colin waited and was there to greet us and let us in to the house. The top balcony was great for star gazing in the evenings and we even saw a comet!
The kitchen was well equipped with all the cooking utensils we possibly needed. The bathrooms were nice and spacious as were the bedrooms.
The swimming pool was clean and there is a nice balcony area to sit at in front of the pool and just gaze out over the ocean. The fire wood ready for the fire pit, and my husband literally said at least 4 to 6 times a day WOW when looking at the view.
We would stay here again anytime Thanks Lucy for sharing your home!!
Thank you so much for making the decision to vacation at our “Paradise”. We’re so delighted that you enjoyed your stay! You were terrific guests, so curious and appreciative. Please do come again!
Kind Regards Always!
Our stay on Grand Bahama Island
My family and I had a great time visiting Grand Bahama. Your home is beautiful. The guest house is spacious and clean. I love the layout and the view is spectacular.
We spent a lot of time sitting in the back by the pool and walking the beach. The beach is beautiful! You truly have a little piece of paradise.
My husband is retired from construction. He worked in concrete construction for commercial and residential. We could see all the thought and detail that went into constructing your home. Beautiful job!
Thank you so much for visiting and please come again!
