About Tish Ricker

We have been going to St. George Island for sixteen years and there is no beach like it! The undisturbed beauty and tranquility are so refreshing and the beaches are pristine. Dolphin watching is a regular thing and there are never big crowds. Come experience a rare secluded unspoiled beach. As a native Floridian, I can say this beach is truly special. This is the second home we have owned on the island.

Tish Ricker purchased this house in 2010

Why Tish Ricker chose Florida

Beautiful pristine beaches, no crowds, dogs allowed on beach with a leash, unspoiled natural beauty - great for bird watchers and nature lovers alike. We also love how charming downtown Appalachicola is with great shopping, restaurants and only twenty minutes away.

What makes this house unique

BEACH FRONT VIEWS WITHOUT BEACH FRONT RATES! Because the 2 lots in front of this home have not been built on, there's nothing between you and the cool blue water.

Absolutely Perfect!!!

  • 5 of 5

Oh my goodness, what a little piece of heaven!! Everything was perfect...this is an annual beach trip for my sister and me and my 2 dogs but our first time to SGI. We love going in the fall and the weather was just perfect. The house was amazing, fully equipped and so comfortable. The front porch/deck is awesome, we spent a lot of time out there and the dogs loved it too, even a gate for them. A constant breeze through the house and we could hear the ocean at night. The island is so dog friendly, they were welcome at the Blue Parrot and Paddy's, I'm sure others too but those were our favorite places. Tish, you are amazing and so easy to communicate with. Thank you so much, we will return!!!

Beautiful View, Great Porch, Comfy & Clean Home

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed our week here. Spent most of our time including meals on the porch which is spacious with beautiful views. The home was clean and comfy with standard beachy decor and a spacious living area and well-stocked kitchen. Enjoyed views from every room. Tish was very responsive to inquiries. Would recommend and return.

We were thrilled with our stay at Blue Wave. From the minute we walked in we felt at home. The house was nicely decorated & most importantly very clean. As a mom of small children who love to crawl around on the floor - cleanliness was of upmost importance to me. The views of the ocean are breathtaking any time of day! We ate all our meals on the porch. It was also so quick to go back & forth to the beach if we needed anything from the house. Tish was great to work with and our family has agreed that St. George will become an annual trip. We cant wait to book Blue Wave again!

Owner's Response: Come on back, the wave is waiting for you. Please book early as some of my best repeat renters got squeezed out for the dates they wanted. Brand new front porch was installed and is AWESOME !! Best, Tish

Blue Wave

  • 4 of 5

Blue Wave offers all the comforts of home, not to mention the beautiful sunrises & subsets you can enjoy from the front porch, which faces the gulf! You are only minutes from a walk on the beach or a suntan any friend will envy. This is our 2nd rental at Blue Wave & we are hoping for a 3rd real soon. The owners are great to work with.

We loved it! FYI bring laundry soap and toilet paper. Bring beach towels too! Everything else was there. We'll be back. The people on the island were wonderful. Grocery shop before you get near the island.
