                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2005

                          About the owner: 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.

                          Why the Owner 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.
