About Tish Ricker

We have been going to St. George Island for sixteen years and there is no beach like it! The undisturbed beauty and tranquility are so refreshing and the beaches are pristine. Dolphin watching is a regular thing and there are never big crowds. Come experience a rare secluded unspoiled beach. As a native Floridian, I can say this beach is truly special. This is the second home we have owned on the island.

Tish Ricker purchased this house in 2010

Why Tish Ricker chose St. George Island

Beautiful pristine beaches, no crowds, dogs allowed on beach with a leash, unspoiled natural beauty - great for bird watchers and nature lovers alike. We also love how charming downtown Appalachicola is with great shopping, restaurants and only twenty minutes away.

What makes this house unique

BEACH FRONT VIEWS WITHOUT BEACH FRONT RATES! Because the 2 lots in front of this home have not been built on, there's nothing between you and the cool blue water.

Great location, huge front deck, very attentive owner.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great month at Blue Wave. With no house blocking our view of the gulf, we practically lived on the expansive front porch, watching the sunrise and listening to the waves breaking on the beach.

The layout of the house is perfect with the split bedroom plan and large living space and there are lots of books, games, and movies provided. Owner, Tish, couldn't be nicer and I would highly reccomend renting this property.

AMAZING!

  • 5 of 5

I couldn't be more pleased with our stay at blue wave. The view is amazing, you don't have to walk far either. I would definitely come back and stay at the blue wave again.

(Ps. there is a beach umbrella in the shower, extremely helpful)

April at Blue Wave

  • 4 of 5

House had lots of recent updates and had a great layout. We loved the wonderful front porch facing the beach. It was an easy walk across the street to the beach.

Great View. Great Location.

  • 5 of 5

My family of four stayed at the Blue Wave for a week during our kids' spring break. The property is clean and well appointed, with a fantastic view from the upper deck. And the owner is attentive and willing to help make your stay as enjoyable as possible. The beach is across the street, and shops and restaurants are nearby. I would return, and recommend this property to others.

A Relaxing Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Blue Wave is certainly among the top rentals we've enjoyed over the years. Very well equipped and maintained. Beds were comfortable and the home was spotless. Spent every morning and evening enjoying the view of the waves from the deck. Afternoons we were on the beach or walked to "town." Tish is super to work with and we look forward to a future stay.

Top notch, as always

  • 5 of 5

This is the third time we have rented Blue Wave and Tish always ensures everything goes smoothly.

The home is always clean, ready on time (or early), and you can't beat the location. Add to that the ability to share our vacation with our dog and it just doesn't get any better!

You couldn't ask for a more attentive rental property owner. We'll see you next year!
