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 St. George Island

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. "

Great Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This home was well maintained and clean on arrival. The views of the bay can't be beat. We enjoyed fishing off the dock, swimming in the pool, going to the beach, and watching dolphin just a few feet away. The game room and hot tub was also a nice touch. This is one of our favorite homes that we have stayed at on SGI.

Best Vacation ever!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time visiting SGI. Typically we are a "stay right on the beach" kind of family. We took a chance this time and decided to stay on the bay side in Shorely Fun. Oh my goodness, I am not sure I'll ever want to stay anywhere else! The house is fantastic and the location to die for! It was so calming and peaceful that more often than not we stayed around the house instead of going to the beach! Tom and Lucinda have done a wonderful job of making this home comfortable and provided just about everything you need. The bikes, beach chairs, umbrellas and beach towels provided made packing a breeze! The kids (and the parents) loved the game room and hot tub and especially the private pool. We brought our dog on vacation for the first time ever and he was thrilled to be with us and met all kinds of new dog friends on his trip! Tom and Lucinda were wonderful to work with and very responsive to any questions we may have had. Thank you so much for sharing your piece of paradise with our family. We are eternally grateful and very well rested after a lovely week with perfect weather. The sunsets each night were amazing and the joy of watching the dolphins come so close is something we soon will not forget. We already cannot wait to come back!

The property was perfect, just as described. The house has everything that you will need!

  • 5 of 5

The house is so private and peaceful! The house has every amenity that your family will need for cooking, entertainment or just relaxing! It is located in a cute town that has restaurants, fresh fish markets and much more! Tom and Lucinda have done a great job of setting up this house to provide a true vacation! Any questions that we had were answered quickly and they even sent a "special" treat to the house! Being in healthcare, a pastor, the funeral business and a law officer having this peaceful, tranquil house to decompress was a true blessing. Thank you so much for sharing this beautiful home with us!

AMAZING HOME! SHORELY FUN!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have been vacationing at St. George Island for around 20 years. We had never stayed on the Bay side of the island until we stayed at Shorely Fun the week of Christmas in December 2016. My dad, sister and I checked into the house on Christmas Day. The house is beautiful and very well cared for. The electricity in one room was off because there had been a power surge in the area before we arrived. I e-mailed Tom and Lucinda, the owners of Shorely Fun, that evening to ask where the breaker box was. They responded within 30 seconds of me sending my e-mail, and this was on Christmas Day! I have leased from every major leasing company on the island over the last 20 years and I have never experienced the quick response time that I experienced with Tom and Lucinda. They are amazing owners and were very attentive to any need or concern we had while staying at Shorely Fun. (Actually, having to flip a switch on the breaker box once was the only issue we had during our entire stay, but Tom and Lucinda let us know that they were available to respond if we had any other concerns or problems.) The kitchen is very well appointed with plenty of dishes, cooking utensils and cooking appliances. The Bay is steps away from the porch so I woke up every morning to watching beautiful sunsets from the chairs on the deck. There is a nice dock for those who like to fish. The fishing, particularly in the evening, is great! On the last night we were there, which was New Years Eve, my sister caught 32 fish in about 2 hours! There is a game room downstairs with a pool table, a ping pong table and foosball table. There is also a great hot tub that is very well maintained in the game room and a wonderful swimming pool outdoors. This house is truly amazing, and I found the owners to be even more amazing! I would highly recommend Shorely Fun to anyone staying on St. George Island. Thank you, Tom and Lucinda, for making our family vacation over the Christmas and New Years holiday a truly special and memorable occasion! -Michelle Cooper, Indianapolis, Indiana
