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 Gulf Beaches

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!

While not the biggest house on the beach, it was more than enough for what we needed. Spent most of our time just sitting on the back porch watching the wave roll in. Will be back for sure.

Owner's Response: Hello Stephen Thank you for staying at The Blue Marlin. We hope that the trend of huge houses being built and replacing smaller ones will not continue as it would make it un affordable for single families to rent a house. The 3/2 Blue Marlin is a perfect house for a family and we have no plans to expand it. We are looking forward to have you back next year. Thank you for staying with us Tom + Lucinda

A wonderful place in the sun!!!

  • 5 of 5

We just finished a terrific weeks stay at The Blue Marlin! The house was extremely comfortable and steps from the beach. More than adequately equipped, sparkling clean, current furnishings, super kitchen and master bath (loved the large walk in shower!), great location, wonderful like new deck overlooking the Gulf with terrific selection of Polywood furniture. While we didn’t use the game room, it’s a very good hangout space. Beachfront location allowed us to easily shoot the most amazing photos: sunrise, sunset, full moon, sparkling water and beautiful shorebirds!! Attentive and responsive owners who were easy to work with both before and during our stay. They checked with us shortly after check in to see if everything was satisfactory. We love SGI and Apalachicola and visit here almost yearly. We will most certainly stay at the charming Blue Marlin again!! Thank you!!!!

Paradise Paradise

  • 5 of 5

What a delightful, fantastic, marvelous, enchanting week at The Blue Marlin. Our week had gone by so quickly without absolutely no issues. It was a turn key beach house ... we brought the groceries/swim suit/cards/refreshments and the weather was PARADISE!!! Blue Marlin ... we will return. We enjoyed the biking, grilling, waterboards, scrabble, cards, books, puzzles to keep us entertained once we came in from the beach. It was a Picture Perfect Place for our vacation. Once again the house was just put together with care & love. We can't wait to come back another time.

How can you improve on perfection? You can't at The Blue Marlin .. it was PERFECTION PARADISE .............
