About Tom and Lucinda

Hello and thank you for looking at our island 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, fishing, great weather and friendly people. We hope you enjoy our home and the island as much as we do.

Tom and Lucinda purchased this house in 2014

Why Tom and Lucinda chose Gulf Beaches

We always wanted a house on the bay side with a great view. We love St. George Island, and the location of Shorely Fun.. The house has wonderful views from all corners of the decks and inside. The area has everything we wanted including great recreational activities year round, delicious restaurants, nice people and small town feel.

What makes this house unique

We are thankful that we are able to build a game room. Our family and friends like to do things together and this house is perfect for that. With the pool table, foosball, ping pong table, bikes, games and hot tub, we enjoys time together. The private game room is a unique feature that kids of all ages will enjoy!

Guestbook comments from the owner

You can see this review on AirBNB

"I had an amazing time at this bay front home. I stay in SGI every year for an annual fishing trip and have rented several homes in the past. This particular home is brand new and is well furnished and I enjoyed the style. The view of the bay from the expansive deck is breathtaking and visible throughout the house. The rental was immaculate and clean. Instructions for everything were provided by the host. The downstairs game room is perfect for kids and adults to enjoy. Most importantly, the fishing was great and the dock provided all the amenities needed for my boat and fishing. If I had a question about something the host immediately responded and provided any assistance we needed. We will most definitely rent this home again next year. "

Amazing house for amazing trip

  • 5 of 5

We wanted to thank you so much for letting us enjoy your beautiful and amazing house.

This house made our vacation more exiting and enjoyable.

What a great and relaxing view!

We had fun fishing and watching many kind of birds flying around us.

Your house is equipped with all things the person can imagine especially the kitchen.

The game room and the hot tub let us enjoy more.

We thank you again Tom & Lucinda for your care even for small details.

Peaceful week on the bay

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful vacation home on the bay. The house was great with everything we needed. We fished off the dock, kayaked in the bay , played ping pong in the game room and rode bikes around time. Love love this ideal beach house and Tom and Lucinda are great hosts. They really care about our wants and needs. Super dog friendly as well ! Will definitely stay here again.

Paradise, paradise, paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We cannot rate this beautiful bay front home more highly! Stunning, daily changing views and amazing sunsets at the end of the street. The bay and location is just breath taking. The home is gorgeous and well appointed, we never considered a non beach location (though its less than 10 mins walk), before, and we are so glad we booked Shorely Fun and have had the most amazing week (including our Chihuahua, Sarah).

There is so I much to do if your a family, with their games room and hot tub, rent a canoe or paddle board on the bay, go crabbing on the rocks or jetty, ride the bikes up the quiet Floridian streets to the beach and so much more. If you love oysters, be sure to go to “Paddy’s Raw Bar, for a beer and fresh oysters - heavenly!

Tom and Lucinda are a joy to deal with and are so responsive and helpful, it was a great pleasure to meet them (and their doggies)!

SGI is a great destination and wonderfully eclectic and romantic, we cant wait to get back here and to stay at Shorely Fun - Thanks for making our vacation so wonderful! ‘Five Star’s !!!

A superb location for fisherman and non-fisherman

  • 5 of 5

The house was very clean and well constructed. It was nice having all the living quarters on one floor and there was plenty of space for four adults, two dogs and two children. There were cleaning products and brooms/sweeper to help us keep the place neat. The pool and hot tub were constantly monitored by a pool service while we were there. We did spend more time at the pool than on the beach at the golf side. The location is absolutely excellent for dogs, kids and adults. There is a small beach area where the dogs can get in and swim, as well as to launch a couple kayaks. We have two german shephards and they enjoyed many hours on the large deck which has gates on either end. The location was very private and safe for the boys (ages 9 & 11) to grab a fishing pool and fish from the back of the house or from the private dock anytime they wanted. They had a blast catching crab too! The island itself has a very relaxing atmosphere and the restaurants were all within a bike or golf cart ride from the house. All the people we met (residents and vacationers) were very friendly. From the reactions we received from all the residents/shop owners, Tom and Lucinda are very well liked on the island. I would absolutely recommend anyone to stay at Shorely Fun if they are planning on visiting St. George Island.

Owner's Response: Hello Patricia Nothing makes us happier than when our guests enjoy a fabulous vacation in one of our homes on St. George Island or the Smoky Mountains. St. George Island is a wonderful place and we hope that one day we can at least spend part time on this unique Island. Thank you for choosing Shorely Fun. We hope you can make it back in the future Tom + Lucinda

Shorely Fun was awesome !!

  • 5 of 5

We highly recommend Shorely Fun. The view is breathtaking!! The entire property was clean and well maintained. The house was the perfect size, all 3 bedrooms were a nice size, and the kitchen was loaded with everything needed. The gates on the porch were so nice to keep toddlers and fur babies to be able to enjoy being outside on the wonderful porch. The pool was beautiful. Oh and the sunsets wow !! The game room downstairs was an added bonus

And I can't thank the owners enough. They were very prompt and helpful on all communication. This was our favorite family vacation !!
