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 2016

Why Tom and Lucinda chose Gulf Beaches

We adore the sunset views from the house. We love St. George Island, and the location of Sunset Retreat on the bay. 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

Hot Tub, beach gear, towels, Bicycles and area discounts.

The Sunsets are amazing!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Sunset Retreat in December. The house offers so much and it has a lot of room. The kitchen has all the stuff you need to cook. The beds are comfortable and we like that each room has a TV. We spent a lot of time on the decks (there was dining table and chairs to relax on) . My husband enjoyed fishing off the dock. But the best part was being in the hot tub watching the sun go down! We come to SGI every year and have to say that this is one of our favorite homes. We will be back next year!!

Owner's Response: We are happy you enjoyed Sunset Retreat. The name says it all - it is one of the few houses on the Bay that enjoys the actual Sunset until she goes down in the Bay. You were the first guests since we purchased and renovated this house. This year we are planning to put a new kitchen in, granite counter tops and tile the bedrooms and re do the bathrooms.

Super View

This property has a unbelievable view of the bay! We had an awesome time eating and just sitting on the large deck with it's great furniture and enjoying the water and sunsets. The large windows on the front of the house provide a perfect view even if it is raining or cold. We also enjoyed the hot tub at night and fishing off the dock during the day. Also, it has very comfortable beds which is unusual for a rental.

Loved the house, yard and dock.

  • 4 of 5

The house was just right for the 5 adults in our party. I could let my dog out without having to put him on a leash. I caught a few trout off the dock and the sunsets were amazing.

Owner's Response: Hello Having 2 rescue dogs ourselves we know to appreciate the convenience of a fenced in yard with direct access from the deck. Must be nice to catch your dinner of the private dock at the house while enjoying the sun setting into the bay. We are glad you liked Sunset Retreat. Thank you for staying with us. Tom + Lucinda

This property was perfect for our family. We've stayed in SGI before but Gulf front so I was a little hesitant about this property since it's bay front. It totally surpassed my expectations! The sunsets over the bay are priceless. My husband couldn't get enough fishing off the bay...making several trips to the bait store daily lol. The house had everything we needed and included beach chairs & toys as well as bikes. My daughter had a great time in the pool and hot tub after long days on the beach. The house is very clean and well maintained. The beds were sooooo comfy...not your typical rental! The owners were wonderful to work with. We would definitely stay there again.

Owner's Response: Hello Cher We are very happy that you and your family enjoyed Sunset Retreat! We also were "beach side" people until we stayed on the bay- we now prefer the bay! With the beach just a few blocks away, you can have the best of both worlds. we hope you will return to one of our SGI homes or TN cabins in the future. All the best, Tom and Lucinda

Sunsets are absolutely beautiful! The house was perfect and had everything we needed. We had the pleasure of meeting the owner, Tom. He was nice enough to show us one of his other rentals. We will definitely be renting from them again and would recommend them to anyone! Wonderful stay!

Owner's Response: Hi Tara It was a pleasure meeting you as well while I was on the Island to make sure everything was ok after the Hurricane Irma. We are happy you enjoyed Sunset Retreat and its amenities as much as your dog enjoyed the fenced in yard. Looking forward to welcome you back at one of our houses on St. George Island Tom + Lucinda
