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.

FANTASTIC WEEK AT SUNSET RETREAT
Our week at Sunset Retreat was amazing. The views were incredible. The fishing off the dock was good. Watched the dolphins swim right by everyday. Enjoyed the hot tub, pool table, and swimming pool. Sunset Retreat has it all. Anything needed in the kitchen was all there. The linens were higher quality than most rental properties, and even provided extras. Beds were comfortable. Can't say anything negative about it. Sunset Retreat has it all. You won't be disappointed.
Beautiful property and fantastic owners
This was our second stay at Sunset Retreat and we’re already booked for 2019. Once again, we found everything we needed and more. We had an issue early in our visit and Tom immediately answered our email and made every thing right. We highly recommend any of Tom and Lucinda’s properties, because they have high standards and you know they’ll respond if you need them.
Thank you for being our guest again and also for booking for 2019 again.
I am sure you noticed the updates - tiled bedroom floors, renovated bathroom, Shade Gazebo on deck etc. By the time you come back there will be a new kitchen and completely re tiled living, dining and kitchen floor
Thank you again for staying at Sunset Retreat

I hate writing reviews like this because if more people like the property, the less chance we have of booking it again!
This is the 2nd time we stayed with Tom & Lucinda, and their standards and attention to detail are consistently high. Sunset Retreat was not a disappointment, in fact it’s our No # 1 favorite to date. Being British, Tom & Lucinda ensured we had a tea kettle in the the property, which we used 3 times a day at least! :-)
The sunsets are amazing (see our photo’s), and we were so blessed to have many dolphin sightings throughout the week right in the bay and in front of the property. One actually swam by me as I was on the very impressive boat dock (I heard it blow as it swam by me).
If you want the best view of the bay (from inside the property or the ample deck), a comfortable home with an open plan aspect to the kitchen and lounge area, this is the place for you (but not when we want it)! Thank you Tom & Lucinda for a great vacation again.
It was a pleasure having you again at one of our houses and it is great to hear you had a fantastic time at Sunset Retreat. We are looking forward to have you back soon at one of our 5 houses on Str. George Island

Best Winter Ever!!
We had a wonderful two months at Sunset Retreat. Loved the house, deck, dock, yard, neighborhood, neighbors and Lucinda and Tom were great. Our golden retriever Buddy loved the fenced in yard and lying on the deck watching everything and long walks on the ocean beach every day. We used our boat a lot and explored many rivers, intercoastal waterway, the bay, little St. George Island, etc. Wouldn't change a thing, everything we thought of or needed was provided by Lucinda and Tom for our use. Lots of drives and exploring on land, state parks. Wakulla springs was wonderful, Indian Pass, Alligator point area, Port St Joe, loved Appalachicola historical buildings, shops, restaurants. Can't wait til next year. Thanks again for letting us share your home.
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.
We are so happy you enjoyed Sunset Retreat and all the amenities. We try to provide our guests will all the comforts of home- including good mattresses!
We hope you will return again soon.
