About Tim Riordan

Love the saltwater, either on it or in it. Also enjoy fishing, canoeing both scenic and whitewater.

Tim Riordan purchased this house in 2003

Why Tim Riordan chose St George Island

As a general contractor for 34 years I designed and built the 'Wahoo' as my second home. I purchased the lot in the late 80's thinking that 'next year' I'd start the project, so....in 2003 I began the design and construction to meet the latest coastal wind and flood codes.

What makes this house unique

Quiet and secluded street without neighbors on either side, at this time anyway.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Tim,



I wanted to thank you

We had some very good time on St George island, and we all hope to be able to be back another time, and spend more time doing some serious fishing

I have been unable to catch a pompano, and this will be my goal next time

What is the best season for that ?

Do you also have some good tarpon fishing there, and what would you recommend to do for this ?





Your house was perfect for us



I hope that everything had been ok on your side





best regards

Quiet as Promised

  • 5 of 5
I highly recommend The Wahoo. The house was well-stocked, spacious, and clean. And as promised, it is located in a quiet residential part of the island. All we could hear from the house were birds. Finally, the owner was professional and communicated promptly. Thanks to The Wahoo and its owner, my family and I had a lovely vacation.

Beach Get A Way

  • 5 of 5
I have rented this home before and once again I was very happy with it. The house is a short walk to the beach (maybe 5 minutes). The fact that there is an outside shower is very helpful when getting back from the beach. The kitchen is well equiped with cooking items. I cooked all meals here for the entire week and didn't need anything beside my crock pot and rice steamer. I look forward to another trip back and it will be right here at The Wahoo!

Memorial Holiday at Wahoo

  • 5 of 5
Our first time visiting the panhandle area and very impressed with the beaches and local area towns. Very quiet and peaceful beaches; lots of dolphins and birds. We loved Apalachicola and Port St. Joe - even stopped in Tallahassee on the drive home. Amenities were great and as advertised; plenty of room, lovely wood floors and lots of windows. Tim was easily available and everything clearly explained. Loved that people could bring their dogs to the beach - made lots of four-legged friends! Next time we'll rent out kayaks and scooters to explore further. Loved the lighthouse. Great for age 55+ if stairs are not an issue, i.e. luggage.

BEAUTIFUL ISLAND

  • 4 of 5
MY HUSBAND, MYSELF & 2 DOGS STAYED HERE FOR 2 MONTHS. HOME IS VERY COMFORTABLE AND ADEQUATE. IT WAS NICE BEING SO CLOSE TO THE BEACH. OUR FIRST WEEK, I DIDN'T THINK I WAS GOING TO LIKE IT THERE BECAUSE THERE IS NOTHING TO DO! THAT TIME OF THE YEAR MANY THINGS ARE CLOSED, BUT AS THE WEEKS PASSED I LEARNED WHY THE PEOPLE OF ST. GEORGE LOVE THEIR ISLAND! TIM IS GREAT TO WORK WITH AND VERY GOOD ABOUT GETTING BK TO YOU. LOVED THE PIZZA SHOP, REALLY GOOD! THX FOR SHARING YOUR HOME WITH US TIM!!

Quiet and Peaceful

  • 5 of 5
What a great place to stay! The house is exactly as listed. My family and I (and dog) were here for Thanksgiving and had a wonderful time. I cooked every meal, including a large Thanksgiving dinner in the rental. Needless to say, the kitchen is very well stocked with pans and dishes. The beach is about 5 minute walk away and very nice. The fact that you can take your dog on the beach is a big plus! We will definitely be staying here again!
They only part of my rental that was scary was paying with a check. I have always used a credit card, but I understand having that convenience is a hassle and an extra charge for all. I can now say to others, DO NOT BE AFRAID! Tim was wonderful to work with. His communication with me through email for phone calls was outstanding!
Thank you Tim for the opportunity to rent from you! We will be back and I have already given your listing to 3 other friends!

When we arrived everything was as advertised, even better! House was clean, well furnished and tastefully decorated. Plenty of room for everyone, a very private and pleasant atmosphere. The beaches are beautiful, local cuisine and atmosphere is great! Close to everything, everyday there was a joy!
Tim is a very accommodating and pleasant person, he just made an already wonderful experience that much better. We will be back, can't wait until next year, Thanks!
