Hello and thank you for looking at our beach house! We live in Miami, Fl but enjoy spending time on the quaint island of St. George. We also enjoy time in Tennessee at our cabins. Tom grew up 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, great weather and friendly people. We hope you enjoy The Blue Marlin and the island as much as we do.

Tom or Lucinda purchased this house in 2013

After we bought our first house, Serendipity, on St. George Island, we knew this was a place that we needed to have more connections. The Blue Marlin has wonderful views and a great beach front location. We are just a few steps to the beach which is the perfect location for us! St. George Island has many conveniences we want including great recreational activities year round, delicious restaurants, nice people and small town feel.

The outdoor space, large beach front lot and plenty of space to share with your family and friends.

The game room is a wonderful place to spend evenings,rainy days or anytime you want to have fun!

EXCELLENT VACATION SPOT!

  • 5 of 5
We originally planned to have 2 or 3 more people with us, but it ended up being just myself, my husband, our daughter and our 2 little dogs. The house definitely met our expectations. Everything was clean and neat and we loved the bright colors. We found it to be very cozy and comfortable. When we weren't on the beach, we spent most of our time relaxing on the deck. The patio furniture is super comfortable! Our two little furry friends loved being out on the deck as well.

We shopped for groceries at Dollar General and Piggly Wiggly in Apalachicola and as promised, the kitchen had everything we needed to cook. We only ate out twice, at B.J.'s Pizza and Bayside Burgers. We enjoyed both! We didn't do much exploring other than the state park. We wanted to spend as much time on the beach as possible ... and we did! We saw dolphins every day. One afternoon we were swimming near a sand bar and 3 dolphins swam by us within 10 feet. That was probably the highlight of our week! My daughter and I spent hours in the mornings and evenings looking for shells.

The owners are very helpful and called to make sure everything was going well. When the water stopped working on Sunday, my husband called Lucinda to let her know. She checked into it and called back a short time later to let us know that there was work being done on the water lines down the road. The water came back on within the hour and didn't pose much of an inconvenience. We really appreciated the owner's concern and that they took the time to let us know what was going on.

We had a super relaxing vacation. I would definitely recommend the Blue Marlin to friends/family! We are hoping to go back next year.

EXCEPTIONALLY RELAXING & QUIET!

Exceptionally relaxing & quiet!
  • 5 of 5
This review is long over due. I don't normally write reviews but I have to express what a wonderful vacation this was for us. It was very relaxing and peaceful, something my husband and I both needed. This was our first trip to the area and we are currently considering a trip back. The Blue Marlin is a wonderful choice, very clean and comfortable for us and our dog. The three of us spent a wonderful week here unwinding. We enjoyed having a fully equipped kitchen so we could just hide out if we desired or enjoy a wonderful dinner at Caroline's or Up The Creek. Thank you for sharing your beautiful property!

It is wonderful that you can take your dog with you to many restaurants and on the beach! We hope you would consider staying at one of our FL beach houses or TN cabin again in the future.

COMFORTABLE, WITH A GREAT VIEW!

  • 4 of 5
This was our first trip to St. George Island, and we had a great time! The Blue Marlin is older, but well-equipped, and nicely decorated. The closest Walmart is 60 miles away, but they have a Dollar General across the bridge, and a Piggly Wiggly in Apalachicola. The beachfront deck and dining area have a gorgeous view, with dolphins passing close by each morning! We also enjoyed the Jacuzzi and game room very much. The fishing off of the beach was not so good, but we hooked some HUGE fish off of the old bridge, including a cobia about 3' long! We will likely stay at the Blue Marlin again next year. Avoid Teach's Raw Bar! My wife had hair in her food, and the oysters made me sick! Harry A's is better, and had a GREAT band after hours. The Owl Cafe' in Apalachicola was very good, but pricey.

We are glad you enjoyed The Blue Marlin and St. George Island. We love the fact that the next Walmart and other chain stores are 60 miles away. It keeps St. George Island quiet and unique. We are looking forward to welcome you back next year.

WATCH DOLPHINS FROM YOUR BEDROOM

  • 5 of 5
The Blue Marlin was our home for almost a week. It´s a beautiful beach house located directly near the waterfront. You can watch your children play (and dolphins passing by)from the balcony. Everything works fine and it is equipped with really everything you need.
We enjoyed our stay really much and we can recommend this house without any exceptions!

We are glad you enjoyed your stay and the added amenities such as the free bikes, beach towels, games etc as well as the very well stocked kitchen - especially since your family flew in from Germany with limited space as to what to bring from home.
thank you for staying at the Blue Marlin

ADORABLE BEACHHOUSE!

  • 5 of 5
This beach house is SO CUTE! It is exactly like is looks in the pictures, only better! The gameroom was awesome because it rained most of the week so we spent time in the hot tub and playing pool. When it didnt rain, we went on bike rides around the island. It was wonderful to have access to bikes. The locals were so nice and our dog made friends with the other dogs on the beach. It would have been a perfect week had it not been so rainy!!!

Owner's Response: Hello Lori
Thank you for your nice words about The Blue Marlin.
We are so happy that you enjoyed the amenities at The Blue Marlin. We added the game room just in case the weather wasn't great for the beach- guess it was a good idea! Even in bad weather, the Gulf is so beautiful- we love to watch the waves roll in! We hope you would consider staying at The Blue Marlin or Serendipity if you return to SGI or one of our cabins in TN if you take a mountain vacation.
Have a wonderful day,
Tom and Lucinda

SPRING BREAK 2014

  • 5 of 5
This was our 4th time to SGI over 12 years - once on East End, 2x in Plantation. So we obviously enjoy it. I felt I might be taking a risk on the Beaches so close to SGI central, but it was still very quiet. I travelled with 5 kids - teenagers to elementary school age. This house is super cute, clean and comfortable - very close to the beach exactly as described. The layout fit our family perfectly. We never felt crowded. The owners were very helpful in answering questions (where are the pool cues and how do you work the hot tub?). I appreciated the real furniture on the deck (not flimsy plastic) and beach chairs, etc that are there for guests. Being spring break, it is not hot, so we made heavy use of the hot tub and bikes and pool table. We rented wet suits at the Dive Shop in Port St. Joe and paddle board and kayak at Journeys. We walked on completely empty beaches in the State Park. The kitchens and bathrooms are not super updated, but who cares? Who wants to cook gourmet meals while on vacation? And how long are you in the bathroom when there is a beach right outside your door? The kitchen was perfect for our family's needs. There were LOTS of bath towels. Wifi and Netflix were helpful on the couple of rainy days. You absolutely cannot beat the mix of comfort, price, quality and location on this house. I would rent it again and I would recommend it to others.
