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 laid back island of St. George. we also enjoy time in Tennessee at our cabins. Tom grew up in 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 Serendipity and the island as much as we do.

Tom and Lucinda purchased this house in 2012

Why Tom and Lucinda chose Florida

We always wanted a house on the beach but not in a congested area. When we found St. George Island, we knew this was it. The house has wonderful views from all corners of the decks and inside. We are just a few steps to the beach which is the perfect location for us! We love the convenience of walking to restaurants and small shops and being away from the noisy city. Serendipity has everything we wanted including great recreational activities year round, delicious restaurants, nice people and small town feel.

What makes this house unique

We really liked the idea that Serendipity had the space for a game room. Our family and friends like to do things together and this house is perfect for that. With the pool table, foosball, bikes, games and hot tub, we enjoys time together. The private game room is a unique feature that kids of all ages will enjoy!

Awesome views!

  • 5 of 5

Serendipity is a great vacation rental! The location is right in the center of town, so everything is in within walking distance. From the upper deck you can watch the sunrise and sunset and also watch dolphins play in the ocean! The hot tub was very relaxing after a long day of shopping in Appalachicola. The playground next door is very convenient if you have small children. And, the Lighthouse Park next door is not only beautiful, but also convenient if you have fur babies! We had a wonderful time and would most definitely return! Thank you, Tom and Lucinda, for sharing your home!

Wonderful Location

  • 5 of 5

This is our second stay a Serendipity. It's a great location, you can watch the sun rise and set from the porch with no obstructions. The house has a well equipped kitchen. Also, there are decent beach umbrellas, chairs and plenty of beach towels. We liked the convenience of being able to walk to the restaurants, SGI Market and the two seafood trucks on the island.

St. George Island Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time with our 3 nieces and 2 grandchildren, ages 8-18. We take them on a vacation each summer and our time at Serendipity this year was one of their favorites. Every day we woke there was another great day! Sunsets on the deck were so spectacular - got some great pictures. Water was perfect! Saw dolphins usually every day in late afternoon/evening. Definitely drive over to Apalachicola and have Larry take you on the Airboat tour! All the kids (and I) enjoyed that.

The house was great - having a washer and dryer was definitely necessary - towels were the biggest need (bring your beach towels too, we used ours and theirs, could have used more bath towels too), sand gets everywhere with children no matter how many times you wash off outside first - which helped tremendously. You would need the baby gates put up if you have smaller children that like to get to the stairs! Lots of stairs logged on my fit bit.

I always felt safe there, we had lots to do, shopping was great, and although the beach had plenty of people, compared to big places like Daytona, Destin, etc. this beach was quiet in comparison. I could see the kids from the house whether on the beach or at the park next to us.

We had everything we needed - except maybe a larger skillet (these kids can eat)!

I would liked to have had a week there with just my husband and I to rest after sending the kids home - maybe next time.

Owner's Response: Hello Kerri we are glad you had a great time at Serendipity. The location is perfect for families with kids being it is right by the park and in walking distance to the Ice Cream place and other Restaurants and shops. The game room keeps the kids busy on rainy days. Maybe one day you can treat yourselves to a quiet vacation with being the baby sitter. Looking forward to see you back in the future Tom + Lucinda
