The guest house provides the privacy you're looking for complete with 2 full bedrooms (queen size beds) and bathrooms. You will have for your convenience a laundry room, computer room, and fully equipped kitchen. There are views galore at every level, from the patio overlooking lush gardens and white beaches, to upstairs with a balcony the full width of the house. There is a bedroom on the first level with an attached full bathroom. Upstairs the bedroom has access to the balcony and there is another full bathroom on this level too. There are 2 bicycles, a kayak, and snorkel gear to enhance your outdoor fun right at the house. You can easily walk to a local popular attraction called Garden in the Groves. This is a tropical garden complete with a restaurant and wildlife, a really fun place to explore.
Also, a convenient walk on the beach will bring you to Banana Bay, relax there with your favorite beverage and local catch of the day. Transportation is available upon request at a separate charge. There is fun in store any direction you head. Come enjoy our paradise and experience any level of vacation you desire. Relax every single day by watching sunset after sunset, or go go go - your choice! Either way, you will leave refreshed and yearning to return.
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
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.
Our family of 5 enjoyed a perfect week at this house. It's exceptionally private (no neighbors!) but feels safe and secure. The house is next to a public beach access so you will see people coming to walk their dogs (no one seems to stay long). Even thought it's 2 bedrooms, our 3 kids were comfortable in one room on airbeds that are provided. It was very enjoyable to walk to Banana Bay for lunch and then back to the house for more relaxation. Lucy was an easy, gracious host even allowing us to stay a day longer when our flight was canceled!
Our trip was fantastic! The photos don't do this place justice. The calm was the perfect holiday getaway to escape the stress of everyday life. Beautiful sunrise walks on the beach, a morning dip in the pool, lazy days on the beach or at Lucayan National Park, scenic sunset kayak rides, and nighttime fires... we had an amazing week! The house was clean and fully equipped with everything we needed. We had an incredible week of family bonding time, and we highly appreciated Colyn's hospitality. If you're looking for a quiet, beautiful place to spend a few days, this is the place to be!
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.
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!!!
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.
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.
Kayak, bicycles, snorkel gear, and beach towels on property for use. Popular Garden in the Groves less than 1 mile away (walking distance). The Rand and The Lucayan National Park near by.
