The Blue Marlin is a amazing vacation location for you and your family. Swim with the dolphins, fish, or just recline on the white, sugary sand.

The Blue Marlin is an excellent place to stay. Beautiful, panoramic views of the ocean from the kitchen, dining room, living room and front bedroom. The game room doors open up to the ocean, for an incredible view, while relaxing in the hot tub. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need to prepare meals. My husband and I rode the supplied park bikes down to the fish trucks every day for the fresh catch. The week flew by and we were not ready to leave. We will be back next year for sure! Thank you Tom and Lucinda for having such a lovely place for us to enjoy. You are always so great. You respond quickly, have a great rates, provide extra touches that go a long way, such as the courtesy call/email to make sure we made it down safely.

Wonderful Vacation spot
Wonderful Vacation spot
Visited with three friends - we all had a great time. The beds are wonderful! Thick towels and plenty of washcloths. Had a minor bathroom faucet ailment mid-week and it was addressed completely shortly after informing owner. Really appreciated the beach towels being available for our use. Full sized appliances, lots of kitchen accessories and eating utensils. If we didn't love the restaurants on SGI and in Apalachicola so much, we could have cooked more than breakfast easily! Hot tub was very nice; game room area would have been great with children/teenagers along. The house appears older than some of the McMansions on the Island but is very clean and bright, with views of the Gulf from each bedroom.. Nice deck furniture and lots of beach chairs available to use. Lots of nice amenities, including window blinds that open and close easily, something I've not found on other beach rentals. When you need to close the blinds at night during sea turtle season, you come to appreciate blinds that work smoothly. :-) I found the owners to be very responsive, both prior to renting and after. They answered my questions quickly. I can recommend this lovely rental without any reservations. Of course, the trouble with good recommendations is that it might not be available the next time we can get away!

Owner response: Hello Ruth Ann We are so happy that you enjoyed The Blue Marlin. We love St. George Island and the location of The Blue Marlin. We try very hard to make the house comfortable with modern amenities and activities yet still keeping the island charm. We appreciate your understanding with having the bathroom faucet replaced. Unfortunately things sometimes break, but as you know we do repair them quickly! We hope you will consider staying at The Blue Marlin again or one of our homes in the Tennessee mountains. Have a great day, Tom and Lucinda
What a house....What a week!!
What a house....What a week!!
Tom and Lucinda, The Blue Marlin is a great beach house. Can't say enough about your piece of heaven on the sand. We had a wonderful relaxing stay in your home. Dolphins played right out in front of the house all hours of the day and evening. Kitchen is well equipped and the game room is great! We made use of the pool table and the hot tub. These are 2 great additions to have since there is not much to do on the island (which is why we chose St. George Island). We brought our pug Chip and he loved the beach. He had as hard of a time adjusting from island time to reality as we did the next week after our stay. Thanks again for renting us your home for the week. We can't wait to book it again for next year!!

Owner response: Hello Craig We are so glad that you enjoyed The Blue Marlin and St. George Island! We love the island's beauty and tranquility and also enjoy watching the dolphin 'show'! We are happy you enjoyed the new game room and hot tub. We always have a lot of fun, playing a game of pool or relaxing in the hot tub with a great view of the Gulf. We hope you will stay at The Blue Marlin again or one of our cabins in eastern TN. Have a great evening, Tom and Lucinda

Thanks so MUCH for sharing your home with us:)! Our first day it rained - NOT A PROBLEM at this property, we had the hot tub, relaxed and enjoyed! We went for R&R and that is exactly what we got. We have been to the Island before, however was not able to stay a full week - The Blue Marlin was just what the Doc ordered to say the least. Well maintained - Pictures really don't do it justice, much nicer than pics show it to be. Ammenties that most properties don't have. I would highly recommend this property to anyone - you will not be disappointed! God Bless to All!

Perfect beach house!
Perfect beach house!
We stayed at the Blue Marlin over 4th of July week and had a wonderful time! We had friends stop by that had rented other houses on the island that week and everyone was jealous of ours! As cute as the house is in pictures, it's much better in person. It's also closer to the water than the pictures convey. Every day we watched dolphins play in the surf, directly from the deck. It was magical! The kids had a great time playing in the game room downstairs and we all enjoyed the hot tub. The weather wasn't particularly cooperative while we were there but even so, it was such an incredible sight watching the storms roll in over the churning water, and listening to the wind howl- all from the comfort of the dining room which affords an amazing view of the gulf. Tom and Lucinda were extremely easy to work with and even called to make sure we had everything we needed and to make sure we were happy with the house. We absolutely were and would love to come back to spend another week at the Blue Marlin! Thanks so much for sharing your little piece of paradise with us!

Owner response: Hi Tracy We are so happy that you and your family enjoyed The Blue Marlin. We love the location and being right on the beach as well. The dolphins seem to put on a how every day and they are amazing to watch! We hope that you would consider staying with us again in the future! Enjoy the rest of the summer, Tom and Lucinda
Walked in (after many days of rain! and wind) and the dining room floor had water standing. I was actually on the phone with the owner, Linda. She offered to have someone clean it up, and within an hour, the roofers were there and worked on the roof! We had a somewhat dry week, and no more problems with leaks. Absolutely loved the pool table, bikes, and beach! Rented a tandem kayak from "jolly roger" to see the dolphins. They deliver and pick up the kayaks, and are very nice. This was just what we needed...a no muss no fuss vacation. A perfect island getaway to do a lot of nothing, except RELAX. The owners also checked in mid week to make sure everything was going well. Now after being back at work for 1 week, i'm ready to go back!!!

Owner response: Hello Kellie We are thrilled that you enjoyed The Blue Marlin. And thank you for your understanding about the roof. As you know we recently renovated and the roofer said something must have come loose. All is well now. We try very hard to get repairs completed as quickly as possible. Our guests enjoyment is very important to us! SGI is a wonderful place to unwind. We truly enjoy staying there! We hope you will consider one of our homes for your next vacation, Tom and Lucinda
Great week at the Blue Marlin!
Great week at the Blue Marlin!
The beach house was charming beyond my expectations. It was well equipped, everything was in really great shape and made it easy to be home away from home. The kitchen was equipped with everything you needed to fix all meals. The views were absolutely stunning from the entire front of the house. The patio downstairs and the game room provided great shade when it was really hot in the middle of the afternoon. The shower down below was fabulous to clean the ocean off before lunch! This was definitely one of the best places we've rented at the beach including condos in Hilton Head, Gulf Shores, Destin, and Seaside Florida!

Owner response: Hello Mary We are happy you enjoyed The Blue Marlin on St. George Island. Lucinda, being a chef makes sure we offer a well equipped kitchen. The game room does add to the house and is a great place to relax in the Hot Tub or enjoy a game of Pool or Foosball. We hope to welcome you back soon in one of our houses on St. George Island or in one of our cabins in the Smoky Mountains of Tennessee. Tom + Lucinda

About the owner: Hello and thank you for looking at our beach house! We live in Miami, Fl but enjoy spending time on the quaint island of St. George. We also enjoy time in Tennessee at our cabins. Tom grew up in Switzerland and Lucinda grew up in New York state. We are active people that like to travel to unique places - together we have traveled to 5 continents (hoping to hit all 7!) We were exploring the Florida Panhandle when we happened upon St. George Island and fell in love with the tranquil beaches. We enjoy all the beach activities, great weather and friendly people. We hope you enjoy The Blue Marlin and the island as much as we do.
Why the Owner Chose St. George Island:
After we bought our first house, Serendipity, on St. George Island, we knew this was a place that we needed to have more connections. The Blue Marlin has wonderful views and a great beach front location. We are just a few steps to the beach which is the perfect location for us! St. George Island has many conveniences we want including great recreational activities year round, delicious restaurants, nice people and small town feel.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The outdoor space, large beach front lot and plenty of space to share with your family and friends. The game room is a wonderful place to spend evenings,rainy days or anytime you want to have fun!
