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!

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

Gorgeous sunrise walks on the beach just steps from the house!

  • 5 of 5

We loved being smack on the white sandy beach of St. George Island..perfect for all those sunrise walks and even a sunset walk down to The Blue Parrot for dinner! We really enjoyed cooking some local seafood on the grill, cocktails and morning coffee on the beautiful new wrap-around deck. Can't say enough about how comfy the owners have made their was so well-equipped! Amazed by the very dog-friendly atmosphere down on the beach too! The owners were friendly and attentive in maintaining the property..we can't wait to enjoy more family gatherings at The Blue Marlin!!

Great Beach Front Cottage

  • 5 of 5

This newly renovated beach front cottage is our favorite place to be on St. George Island. Nicest and most well stocked we have found in the 16 years we have been staying on the island. Love it!
