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 Gulf Beaches

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.

Great Location and Very Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Tom and Lucinda were great hosts. The property is in a great location. It is walking distance to restaurants, shopping, and the lighthouse. We took our bicycles and rode around the island and across the bridges to Apalachicola. After a long ride we enjoyed the hot tub while viewing the ocean. We will stay here again sometime in the near future. This trip was very relaxing and just what we needed!

Perfection!

  • 5 of 5

This is our third stay at Serendipity. Perfect location for views of the lighthouse and ocean. Also great spot for walking the pups at the park. If you forget your puppy clean up bags the park even has a plastic bag stand. Loved being so close to all the restaurants. We were able to walk or bike to the shops and restaurants. The owners even supply bikes in their awesome game room below the house.

The house is located next to the public beach walkway but it was never a problem. Being close to a grassy area for dog walking made up for that.

The house is well stocked and very nice. The large top deck and with awesome outdoor seating offered spectacular views of the ocean and provided a great place to relax and enjoy your meals or read a book.

The owners are very responsive to emails. Tom happened to be there redoing another house and stopped by. Serendipity is a great place to relax and rewind. St. George Island is a peaceful place.

As advertised, family friendly (furry kids as well) beach front location.

  • 5 of 5

The island is not commercialized which makes it the perfect getaway location. We met an incredibly friendly islander and his son on one of our beach walks and they provided much information which included a tour of the state park. If you are visiting the island, you must visit the state park, especially the area beyond the locked gate. Appearantly only 20 vehicles are allowed access past this point at any given time. The water access and fishing are priceless. Our family did utilize the golf cart and explored what the island offered, it is not mandatory though as the center of town is within walking distance to the home. Game room and hot tub offered evening wind down time for all. If we visit the island again, I’d love to visit your other properties, we prefer oceanfront but away from the public parking and pavilion. Many thanks for accepting our reservation request on short notice, it was a special few days away from our paradise in South Carolina.

Owner's Response: Hello James Thank you for staying at Serendipity. The location is perfect to spend a vacation without having to drive anywhere being all shops and restaurants are in walking distance. The game room with the pool table, foosball table and hot tub is a great place to relax, have fun. We hope you had a chance to use our free bicycles at the house as well. A lot of guests do rent ne of golf carts - as you mentioned it is not really needed but is fun to just explore the island. We are looking forward to have you back in one of our 6 houses on the Island Tom + Lucinda

Perfect in every way!!!

  • 5 of 5

Home was as listed, spotless and comfortable. Loved that each bedroom had its own bath. Perfect location on the island in proximity to shops, restaurants and grocery; everything within walking distance. However, we did rent a gulf cart to explore other areas of the islandwhich was enjoyable. Friendly people, beautiful beach and not commercialized. We all loved our stay there! Thank you Tom and Lucinda!
