About Tom and Lucinda

Hello and thank you for looking at our beach house!

We live in Miami, Fl but enjoy spending time on the laid back island of St. George. we also enjoy time in Tennessee at our cabins. Tom grew up in 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 Serendipity and the island as much as we do.

Tom and Lucinda purchased this house in 2012

Why Tom and Lucinda chose St. George Island

We always wanted a house on the beach but not in a congested area. When we found St. George Island, we knew this was it. The house has wonderful views from all corners of the decks and inside. We are just a few steps to the beach which is the perfect location for us! We love the convenience of walking to restaurants and small shops and being away from the noisy city. Serendipity has everything we wanted including great recreational activities year round, delicious restaurants, nice people and small town feel.

What makes this house unique

We really liked the idea that Serendipity had the space for a game room. Our family and friends like to do things together and this house is perfect for that. With the pool table, foosball, bikes, games and hot tub, we enjoys time together. The private game room is a unique feature that kids of all ages will enjoy!

Two couples from Wisconsin had a great visit, with incredible weather.

  • 5 of 5

The location, spacious decks and oceanfront access made this a delightful 10 day stay. We have been coming for more than a dozen years to the Island but this is our first renting from Tom and Lucinda. They are very pleasant to deal with and responsive to needs. we arrived to find a broken dining room chair and it was replaced the next morning. The hot tub was a pleasant relaxing evening treat. There are a lot of steps, the third floor bedroom was tough on one of our guests.

Excellent Location

  • 4 of 5

My family of 6 just spent a week at Serendipity and loved it. We thoroughly enjoyed the close access to the beach. It made it so easy to come and go and we didn't feel the need to take everything down to the beach since it was so close to come back up to the house for lunch or other small things.

It rained several days while we were at St. George and the covered game room downstairs saved us. It is big enough that we could set up the corn hole game and we played and enjoyed being outside in spite of the weather.

The kitchen was fully equipped and had everything we needed. We cooked most every meal in and we found we had every accessory we needed each time (including great knives).

The location to "town" is perfect. We enjoyed walking to dinner, to the ice cream shop, and to the grocery stores. Being that close to the ice house was a huge help. We took one giant cooler over on the truck every day and filled it up and used it to fill smaller coolers. That was a life saver.

We had one issue and called Lucinda and she took care of it immediately. You can't ask for more than that=)

All in all we thoroughly enjoyed our trip and will definitely be returning.

Perfect Place for families with Teens!

  • 5 of 5

We usually stay on Cape San Blas, but this year we wanted to try St. George Island for the kids. We brought our 5 kiddos and my mom; ages are 11, 13, 15, 19, 20. Serendipity was perfect for our family! The pool table, foosball table and hot tub made all the difference. We also rented the golf cart which was also a plus. We never heard "I'm bored" even during the two rainy days. We liked the location as well, glad to be in walking distance of most everything. The bigger deck made for good conversations with the kids since we could all sit out there comfortably. We would suggest visiting Dog Island, it was a rare beauty! We brought back memories to last a lifetime.

Owner's Response: Hi Melissa We are so happy that you enjoyed Serendipity and St. George Island! The game rooms are always a winner with kids (and adults) of all ages!! We love the large decks and enjoying the sun until it sets. We are glad you liked the location- being in 'town' makes it easy to walk to restaurants, lighthouse park and shops. We hope you will return to Serendipity (or one of our other homes ) again in the future. Have a great day, Tom and Lucinda
