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!

This is an ideal place to stay. Right on the water, in the center of the community.

  • 5 of 5

It is located next to the light house and is equipped to accommodate 6 or more people. A full bath with each of the 3 bedrooms, filled with every amenity you could possibly need. Quiet and spacious and easy quick access to the beach! It is close to Apalachicola with so many lovely shops and businesses of a real historic and authentic "old Florida" community. This is a perfect get away in the most prestiene environment you can imagine!

Relax and Enjoy

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Serendipity was wonderful. Plenty of comfortable deck furniture, quiet and surprisingly private even though close to neighbor and public access to beach. Views were fantastic. Near all island restaurants and shops. Bedrooms, bathrooms and living room were clean and very comfortable, kitchen was well stocked with all that you need (if you decide to cook). Lots of stairs so if that is an issue this home may not be for you. My friend and I have been visiting SGI for a girls week for several years. We usually try a different beach house each year, but we hope to return to Serendipity next year. It was that great.

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!
