About Tom and Lucinda

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 and Lucinda purchased this house in 2013

Why Tom and Lucinda chose St George Island

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.

What makes this house unique

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!

Felt like we had the beach to ourselves!

  • 5 of 5
The beach views from this home are AMAZING! We arrived late in the day but spent our evening on the deck watching the stars. There was a meteor shower that night and I have never seen as many shooting stars! The island was very quiet this time of year and at times we were the only people on the beach for as far as the eye could see. It really gave us the chance to see what an "undeveloped" FL beach feels like. The house had everything we needed. The only thing I would suggest is some new bathroom linens.

Gorgeous views! Fun for the whole family

  • 5 of 5
The views from the deck are stunning. Nighttime great for viewing the stars.
Plenty of beach towels and chairs for the beach. 1st day there my 9 yr old daughter caught a starfish, checked him out and put him back in the Gulf. Love watching all the birds and daily dolphin show. Had everything we needed.
Had the water heater go out part way through the week, Called to let them know and was fixed in a timely matter. Only 2 downsides and one they could not help, my daughter had to visit the local ER. The other, Master bedroom bathroom shower is very tiny, my 6'6" hubby was too tall for it and I felt very confined when using it.

Vacation Perfection

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at the Blue Marlin was perfect. The house it outfitted like a home, not a rental property. The dishes, silverware, glassware, etc. were not "vacation house leftovers," they were more than we expected. The enclosed & shaded under-pinnings of the house were a dream come true. We look forward to staying at the Blue Marline again in the future.

Great location

  • 3 of 5
Positives for the property
1. The house is located right on the beach.
2. The owners are responsive.
3. The bottom level has been converted to a game room with food ball, hot tub, bikes, etc. This takes the under house parking out of the equation, which would have been nice since it can get quite hot on SGI in the summer, but this area would be great for families with children.

Negatives:
1. The master bathroom is very dated and tiny. The toilet seat is rather small and not made for your average size adult. The stand up shower is tiny and you have to carefully adjust the hot and cold water to avoid scorching hot or ice cold water.
2. The kitchen is very small and there was only one cabinet to store stuff we brought with us and groceries we purchased.
3. The third bedroom is actually a converted room that is off the living room and has french doors with windows and a shade that can be closed for privacy. We did not need or use this room (it became storage space) but it would be better suited for a child but not an adult.

Owner's Response: Hello Stephanie
We are sorry to hear that you were not totally satisfied with The Blue Marlin. However, we were a bit perplexed with some of your comments. The first thing we did was call our plumber to check toilet sizes! He said that all toilets are basically the same size but the shape may be different (elongated to round) and toilets come in different heights, so we are confused as to why you think our toilet is small because it is standard size. We also asked the plumber to check the hot water - we have not had any one else mention the difficulty in setting the temperature in the shower but he will check it out.
The other item we are confused on is your statement that the master bedroom is 'tiny'. There is a king bed, 2 side tables, chest of draws, chairs, closet and still room to walk around. It also has a premium memory foam mattress, HD TV and the furniture is not outdated.
We agree that the cabinets are full of all the cooking items that you will need. After renting some homes and having to either buy equipment or do without, we chose to give our guests all the pots, pans, platters, appliances, etc.. that they will need to prepare meals. We have heard only raving reviews at how well equipped our kitchen is. With that said, we did leave several empty cabinets for guests to put supplies.
As per your other comments on the shower and front bedroom, they are as depicted in the photos. The front bedroom has fabulous views and a queen bed. The shower is a standard size shower, but we also have the full tub/shower combo for guests who prefer more space.
The photos on our websites are exactly as the house appears (we took them ourselves and they are not altered), we do not falsely advertise the house to what it is not. The Blue Marlin is a typical beach house in a wonderful location. It offers a fantastic game room and hot tub that is unique on St. George Island.
For a more modern home on the island, we have Serendipity which also has the game room and hot tub.
Again, we are sorry that you were not completely thrilled with The Blue Marlin like the vast majority of our guests.
Sincerely,
Tom and Lucinda
