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 Florida

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

Very very please

  • 5 of 5

This was our first vacation at Saint George Island and we loved it. My family and I were so please with this beach house. It was clean, excellent location and close to the beach. Tim was excellent to deal with and get a response from. The house was just as described and we had no issues whatsoever. Would highly recommend and I would book again. Thanks Jen & family

Relaxing and comfortable

  • 4 of 5

The house has a great location to walk to the beach and restaurants. Also a small grocery store not very far. The home is spacious enough and comfortably decorated. The deck makes you feel that you are up in the trees, listening to the birds! The area is beautiful and we would recommend a stay here.

A quiet, comfortable, spacious house

  • 4 of 5

Also, very favorably situated with wonderful walks in every direction. Close to the bay and the beach. The house has a great large deck from which to watch birds, crashing storms, read or just relax and snooze. We had a lovely week.

Wahoo was peaceful and welcoming, kitchen had everything we needed and plenty of room to spread out.

  • 4 of 5

Thank you again for sharing your lovely home with my parents and us. There was plenty of room to eat at the bar, while one guest had their computer things set up on the generous sized kitchen table. The kitchen was equipped with everything we needed to have nice quiet dinners in.

There is almost ZERO light pollution on the Island, which made for some fantastic star gazing. Mosquitoes were fairly thick, but one of the locals said they are simple at a RECORD high this year; we had repellent and weren't bothered too much.

We enjoyed our time at the Wahoo, and certainly on Saint George Island.

Thank you again.
