Tim Riordan purchased this house in 2003
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.
Quiet and secluded street without neighbors on either side, at this time anyway.
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
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
My third trip to the island - have stayed here every time. FYI, love the new floors. I bring my husband and kids here as often as i can, love that it's dog friendly. 1/2 block from the bay with the most amazing views of the sunset over Apalachacola. We walked to the beach every morning for sunrise and coffee. I think price wise it's the best deal on the island. We also enjoyed riding our bikes to Harry A's to eat dinner. Looking forward to coming back next year! Thanks Tim.

This was our first vacation to SGI. The island was beautiful and we enjoyed our stay however, we were extremely disappointed with The Wahoo. We found the unit very untidy with sandy floors and unwashed bed linens. With that said, the worst part was the ROACHES! Yes, this unit has a major roach infestation. We contacted Tim immediately after discovering the roaches, but he never replied. The appliances are very old and worn out, the dry vent outside was almost completely clogged, beds were very uncomfortable and the couch is ready for the dump. Bottom line...Renter Beware! We will definitely visit the island again, but we will NOT be staying at The Wahoo.
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.
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.
nice place, short walk to the beach, neighborhood was quiet, pets were accepted, not fancy but comfortable, would stay there again
