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 Gulf Beaches

Beautiful pristine beaches, no crowds, 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.

Celebrated our 40th Anniversary at Blue Wave! My husband and I used to stay in this home, with our two daughters, when it was Stairway To Heaven. Now, with the girls married and children of their own, we have outgrown this property but always wanted to come back to remember the good times! Just the two of us and a few bottles of wine for 3 nights of amazing sunsets on the front porch, was better than we imagined. Sunrises were also amazing! This property has unobstructed views of the gulf and it feels like it is beachfront, without beachfront pricing. You can walk to town and the shops and restaurants. Tish is so easy to work with and you can trust that she is right on top of things. She helped me pull off this surprise get away by using my daughters e-mail address and texting my phone. My husband was thrilled when we pulled up to this beautiful home full of wonderful memories. Oh, did I mention the house is very clean! That's a big deal to us. Thank you Tish. Already thinking of making this an annual anniversary trip!

We loved our short trip. The ocean was perfect. Weather was great. We loved the house and were very comfortable. Everything we needed was there. We ate at several restaurants and all were very good. We truly enjoyed our stay and would probably come back again.
