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!

Great beach access

  • 5 of 5

First time to visit SGI and it did not disappoint and the Blue Marlin was the perfect place to be! The beach was easily accessible and the house was well stocked with beach equipment and just about everything you would need. We had two young children and two dogs with us and the house easily and safely accommodated all of them. The view from the deck was amazing and we loved the large table in the house so we could all eat and play games together. Would definitely recommend to any families and would rent this house again.

Wonderful experience

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely loved my time in Tom & Lucinda's rental property. It's the perfect location and the deck is as cozy as sitting on the beach. Great communication from them, and was even able to check in a little early. Loved being able to have my sweet dog with me on vacation. Will definitely be back!

Fourth of July at the Blue Marlin

  • 5 of 5

For the past fifteen years we have taken a family vacation to St. George which started with our son and daughter in law. Now the week includes our two beautiful grandchildren that we have been blessed with, and sometimes we have "Maw-Maw", my 81 year old mother, and a grand-dog. The fourth of July week at the Blue Marlin was near perfect. The home was cozy and so close to the beautiful beaches and ocean that we could enjoy the view from the deck. This location is perfect for families and I loved seeing and hearing other families enjoying the beach. Maw-Maw has difficulty getting around but for the first time in many years, she was able to make the trek to the beautiful beach. This is mostly because the house was in such a great location and the beach access was close to the best we've ever had. The Blue Marlin was perfect for our family this year. Our grandchildren and grand-dog were as happy as could be. The game room and hot tub were a huge hit with everyone as well. The home was exactly as described. It was very clean and there were beach towels, and plenty of linens. There were all sorts of beach toys and chairs and bikes. Tom and Lucinda, the owners, were wonderful to check in on us to make sure everything was as it should be. They really made our week as enjoyable as possible. My mom told me as we were leaving, "It has been a great week. I got to do things that I thought I would never be able to do again, walking down to the beach and spending time as a family on the beach." That moved this family vacation to the top of my list as the best ever.

Owner's Response: Hello Rhonda It is so nice to hear that The Blue Marlin was the perfect place for your family vacation and that your 81 year old Mom was able to do things that she never thought she could do again. Being all rooms are on 1 level makes it a good fit for elderly folks. Thank you for staying at the Blue Marlin Tom _+Lucinda

One week isn't enough

  • 5 of 5

No complaints from our group of 6 (ages from 59 to 12). The house is as described and pictured. The beds were very comfortable. The A/C uit worked great. The bikes could use a tune up, but what do can you expect when they are outdoors at the ocean. Very convenient location and very quiet beach. Dogs loved the place too. Would totally go back tomorrow!

Owner's Response: Hello Linda We are glad you had a great time at The Blue Marlin/ It is true - the bicycles do take a beating with the moist and salty ocean air. We replace them every year or so and do our best to "de rust" them throughout the year. The bicycle rental places face the same problem - but at least our guests do not have to pay $ 5- $10 a day per bike that the rental places charge and can use our 6 free bikes for free. Our dogs love to hang out on the deck and watch the beach and the world go by - that is why installed a gate be the deck stairs so we don't have to worry that they run off. We hope to see you back at one of our houses on St. George Island in the future Thank you for choosing The Blue Marlin Tom + Lucinda
