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.

Fantastic views right on the beach!

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our Spring Break at Serendipity. Tom and Lucinda were easy to work with and very responsive. The proximity of the playground, basketball court and lighthouse is a real plus for families with younger children. The house was clean and had all the necessary items. The view from either deck is as advertised. My only negative comment would be the room set up. The beds are a bit bulky for the size of the rooms and it may make sense to have two sets of bunk beds in the upstairs bedroom so you can comfortably fit two families of 4. Overall, a relaxing vacation on a beautiful beach with very nice accommodations. Certainly a lot more value than 30A.

Owner's Response: Hello Doug We are glad that you enjoyed Serendipity, the location, amenities and the area. We like to provide all the amenities that guests (young and old) will enjoy such as game room, hot tub, bikes, beach gear, beach towels and a well equipped kitchen. We agree that the location is prime- close to everything and great views. Sleeping arrangements are very much a personal preference. The majority of our guests like the comfortable king and queen beds being they are more comfortable than smaller beds. Being all the bedrooms have attached bathrooms, it is a great house for several couples as well as multi generational families where 3 bedrooms with normal beds are required. Bunk beds are not practical or comfortable for all ages and would not work well at Serendipity. We do have bunk beds in several of our properties, where it makes sense. We appreciate your comments and hope you will contact us again for future vacations. We may be able to suggest another one of our properties that may fit your sleeping arrangements better. Warm regards, Tom and Lucinda

great location and great lodging

  • 5 of 5

What a great spot! The landlords are amazing and anything needing attention was attended to. The view is awesome, right on the beach - and I think the St George Island beach is as good as any beach I have ever been on. I walked it at 7:00 for sunrise and at 6:30 for sunset. This unit you can see both sunset and sunrise from the deck. Again, awesome. It is close to town, right by the park next to the lighthouse. It is attractively decorated and has lots of amenities (hot tub, bikes, beach towels and chairs, kitchen things). You can walk to pizza, ice cream, for a drink, and for seafood or bbq - all the essentials! I will feel very comfortable booking again.

This is an ideal place to stay. Right on the water, in the center of the community.

  • 5 of 5

It is located next to the light house and is equipped to accommodate 6 or more people. A full bath with each of the 3 bedrooms, filled with every amenity you could possibly need. Quiet and spacious and easy quick access to the beach! It is close to Apalachicola with so many lovely shops and businesses of a real historic and authentic "old Florida" community. This is a perfect get away in the most prestiene environment you can imagine!

Relax and Enjoy

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Serendipity was wonderful. Plenty of comfortable deck furniture, quiet and surprisingly private even though close to neighbor and public access to beach. Views were fantastic. Near all island restaurants and shops. Bedrooms, bathrooms and living room were clean and very comfortable, kitchen was well stocked with all that you need (if you decide to cook). Lots of stairs so if that is an issue this home may not be for you. My friend and I have been visiting SGI for a girls week for several years. We usually try a different beach house each year, but we hope to return to Serendipity next year. It was that great.
