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 Florida

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!

Owner's Response: Hi Kim We are glad you enjoyed your stay at The Blue Marlin. Thankfully our team was able to get the house ready for the next guest before they arrived, after you accidentally forgot to check out. We understand people not wanting to leave The Blue Marlin but we don't understand 4 stars after you got a free day and told us you totally enjoyed your trip. Thank you for staying, Tom and Lucinda

Wonderful, relaxing vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our first vacation trip to SGI. A large part of the enjoyment was the Blue Marlin. It's a fantastic vacation home which served every one of our needs. We loved sitting on the deck watching the dolphins and enjoying the beautiful view. And it was even more wonderful having our dogs with us. Because of the secure gates on either end of the deck, they were able to run around enjoying the beautiful weather. We would not hesitate to recommend the Blue Marlin to anyone looking to rent a vacation home on SGI. Thank you so much Tom and Lucinda for sharing your home with us and allowing us to bring our dogs with us!!! **And the information you provided regarding the area was a great help to us.**

Owner's Response: Hello Danielle We are glad you liked beautiful St. George Island and The Blue Marlin. having dogs ourselves - we decided to put gates up - it just makes it a lot easier to have the dogs. We are planning to fence part of the yard in as a dog run as well in November - the same time we will remodel the 2nd bathroom and re tile all bedrooms ! Thank you for staying with us Tom + Lucinda

AWESOME!!!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I loved our stay at SGI and your house. The house is very clean and very well equipped with everything anyone should need. The updates are very nice and make the house a more warm welcome stay. The views off the deck and from the hot tub are very wonderful. The owners are very nice wonderful people to work with, we got to town a little early and they let us go ahead and check in and unpack. This was our first time to SGI but have been to other parts of Florida on vacation and will be coming back here many more times. The game room and hot tub are a very nice touch to the already wonderful house. If you are looking for peace and quiet, awesome views and a great house to stay in, this is the one. Thanks Tom and Lucinda

Owner's Response: Hello Troy We are so happy that you liked your first visit to St. George Island and your stay at the Blue Marlin. In November we will remodel the 2nd bathroom and tile all 3 bedrooms. Next Week a whole house filter / water softener will be installed to get rid of the hard island water in the showers and kitchen. We are looking forward to welcome you back in the future Thank you for selecting The Blue Marlin Tom + Lucinda

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

The house was everything we could imagine, then some! Beautiful gulf views, hot tub with a view, kitchen was perfect. The beach was practically all to ourselves. We will definitely stay here again while visiting SGI.

Perfect cottage on a perfect beach for a perfect vacay!

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming to SGI for twelve years and we have stayed in all sorts of rental properties. This one is well stocked, perfectly decorated, and steps away from the beach. It is an affordable option with bikes included! The owners are very responsive and were a pleasure to work with during the rental process. We enjoyed a perfect week and the fish were biting!

Owner's Response: Hello Tracy We are so happy you enjoyed The Blue Marlin. The house is a great value- being right on the beach and all the amenities we offer- such as bike, game room, hot tub and more. We try to equip all of our homes with all the items that our guests will enjoy. We hope you will keep our homes in mind for your next trip to SGI (or if you travel to Gatlinburg TN!) Warm regards, Tom and Lucinda

Blue Marlin Review

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful view, great beach, great location. We had a wonderful time! Very dog friendly, house facilities were good, enjoyed extra space downstairs and beautiful master bath! Enjoyed fishing from beach and the beautiful walks along the ocean.

Only improvements: need a bigger water heater, couldn't handle our group of 6. Also, cable TV got very few channels, not a problem except for a big SEC basketball game ; ) Really didn't watch much TV though... too beautiful outside!

Owner's Response: Hello Steve We are glad you liked the Blue Marlin. The master bathroom with the large walk in shower was done in November. Later this year we are renovating the 2nd bathroom and re tile all bedrooms with Porcelain tiles. We had no complaints about the hot water - it is a full size water heater - we will have it checked out. There should be some 60+ channels - maybe it was set on the wrong HMI input ? Thank you for staying with and we are looking forward to have you back in the future Tom + Lucinda
