About Lucas Smith

We are a very close multigenerational family who have always loved beach vacations and spending time together. It was in 2012, when we traveled to St. George Island for the first time and we knew this was the place for us.

We personally stay in our homes and assure you that they 'are' as they are pictured. We take great pride in our homes and look forward to sharing them with our guests.

Lucas Smith purchased this house in 2013

Why Lucas Smith chose St. George Island

We bought our houses to share with our family and friends and to introduce our younger generations to an incredible gift of nature. The Island is a very special place where you can slow down, feel one with nature and 'heal' your body, mind and soul.

What makes this house unique

Enough room for everyone, privacy, close to beach

Great Week

  • 5 of 5

The 6 bedrooms and multiple baths make this a great place for family gatherings. The owners were pleasant and helpful. We had the pool heated, which made for a very accommodating environment when the Gulf surf was not as pleasant or warm.

An extra perk for a second tier was a direct view of the Gulf, there are no buildings directly between the house and the Gulf, so sunrises were added attractions.

The elevator made getting things to the kitchen VERY EASY, and as a regular to the island this was a real bonus feature along with a ground level entry that protects things from the usual island critters outside.

As a Grandpa with Grandma, accommodating kids and their families can be often a case of running over each other's patience, but the additional game/living area in the second floor made the vacation more fun and diminished that feeling when everyone is inside that we trip over one another.

House built for family fun!

  • 4 of 5

Everyone enjoyed their time in St. George. We didn't let the rain dampen the fun. The grandkids used the pool a lot between the showers, so it worked out well having a pool at the house. The beach is a short walk and location of the home allowed us to take meandering walks in the evening. Mr Smith responded very quickly when we had some wifi questions.

The elevator was a godsend since my husband had a fall on our way to Florida and couldn't have managed without the elevator. The house is well equipped and we had everything we needed for the week. We'll be back next year!

Thank you for sharing your wonderful home.

Great Extended Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for our group of 14. The elevator was extremely valuable. The house was clean and ready to go as soon as we arrived. We had no issues whatsoever. I recommend this house to anyone traveling with a large group. Look forward to visiting again!

The house was nice; however, the furniture was inadequate. There was not enough seating for the living area for what was advertised and the bedrooms had random pieces. Some rooms had no storage. One of the bedrooms had NO furniture at all Except a bed and the closet was locked. When I inquired I was told it was the owners closet and we needed to use a closet in another room. For the amount of money we spent we should have been able to hang our clothes and have a dresser or a nightstand not having to live out of a suitcase for a week. We had a nice time, but would not rent this house again.
