About Tom and Lucinda

Hello and thank you for looking at our island 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, fishing, great weather and friendly people. We hope you enjoy our home and the island as much as we do.

Tom and Lucinda purchased this house in 2014

Why Tom and Lucinda chose Florida

We always wanted a house on the bay side with a great view. We love St. George Island, and the location of Shorely Fun.. The house has wonderful views from all corners of the decks and inside. The area has everything we wanted including great recreational activities year round, delicious restaurants, nice people and small town feel.

What makes this house unique

We are thankful that we are able to build a game room. Our family and friends like to do things together and this house is perfect for that. With the pool table, foosball, ping pong table, bikes, games and hot tub, we enjoys time together. The private game room is a unique feature that kids of all ages will enjoy!

Guestbook comments from the owner

You can see this review on AirBNB

"I had an amazing time at this bay front home. I stay in SGI every year for an annual fishing trip and have rented several homes in the past. This particular home is brand new and is well furnished and I enjoyed the style. The view of the bay from the expansive deck is breathtaking and visible throughout the house. The rental was immaculate and clean. Instructions for everything were provided by the host. The downstairs game room is perfect for kids and adults to enjoy. Most importantly, the fishing was great and the dock provided all the amenities needed for my boat and fishing. If I had a question about something the host immediately responded and provided any assistance we needed. We will most definitely rent this home again next year. "

We can't wait to come back!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful getaway in a fabulous house. Shorely Fun is beautiful - so well equipped and such pretty décor. We enjoyed cooking in the lovely kitchen - everything we needed was provided, even a potato peeler. The furniture in Shorely Fun is much nicer than what I usually find in a rental property. The mattress in the yellow bedroom is perfect; we slept so well. The couches are so pretty and so comfortable. We loved watching the dolphins from the porch, playing in the game room and soaking in the hot tub. I can't think of a thing we needed that wasn't provided in this beautiful home. We love the location on the bay. And with this amazing house you get amazing owners. Tom came to our rescue when our car battery died. With a jump start from his truck, we made it to town to get a new battery. We hated to leave Shorely Fun and we can't wait to come back when the pool is done so we can swim while we look out over the bay. Thanks for letting us stay at Shorely Fun. We'll see you again next year.

Owner's Response: Hello Ronnie It was a pleasure meeting you and your sister. It was the right time I came by to check on the pool installation progress when you happened to be stuck with a dead battery and I am glad I was able to give you a jump start. Thank you for you nice compliments on the house and I am sure that the pool will be a nice addition to the many amenities the house already has - like the hot tub, pool table, ping pong table, foosball table, bicycles etc. We are looking forward to welcome you back next year Tom + Lucinda

Fabulous house. Plenty of extras. We were able to leave our bikes at home this trip. Borrowed one of the many beach umbrellas and a chair or too. Loved the bonus game room.

What a fabulous vacation we just had.Perfect for couple that loves the bay & fishing. Downstairs area was awesome also.Wish the hot tub had been fixed but there had been a hurricane & we understood.We loved the house & the location was perfect for us. Our friends went to the beach & we went fishing in our boat right from the dock! We will stay here again!

Owner's Response: Hello Steve, Lisa Thank you for staying at Shorely Fun and understanding about the hot tub issue. Hurricane Hermine hit the week before you arrived and the storm surge blew out of the motor and controls of the hot tub under the house. Never the less, we apologize for the 2 days that the tub was not working. We were happy that our hot tub maintenance company was able to install a new motor and new controls on Monday so at least you had the hot tub running for most of your stay. (poor guys were so busy with 15 flooded pools and other hot tub issues. We're thankful they took care of ours so quickly!) We are glad you had fun at Shorely Fun and hope to welcome you back soon. Warm regards, Tom + Lucinda

Blown Away!!

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I had the pleasure of experiencing this lovely home. The owners have done a phenomenal job with the amenities. Everything you need for a vacation is there. We really liked the early morning bike rides around the island, and beach supplies that were available for guest use.. What a great idea!! The game room is awesome and we loved sitting in the hot tub with the bottom patio doors open to view the bay's breathtaking views. All was well till Hermine decided to show up!!

Mandatory evacuation and a vacation cut short by Hurricane was a bummer.. Would've loved to been able to enjoy the full week at this home.

Oh yeah.. we got the insurance, but low and behold it doesn't cover evacuations.... Go figure...

Owner's Response: Hello Laura I think you already posted a review, but we are happy to respond again. We are happy that you enjoyed Shorely Fun. We took a lot of time renovating the house and making it a fun place to stay. Everyone loves the game room and hot tub! The house is well equipped with everything you need to enjoy a beach vacation- including beach gear, beach towels, plenty of kitchen stuff and bicycles. Plus the view just can't be beat!! As you know, you did not purchase insurance through us. We do not sell insurance nor do we endorse any company. There are many different type of insurance policies out there. Some cover weather cancellations, some you can cancel for any reason, some have restrictions. We advise guests to shop around and ask questions. One thing to remember, you do not need to buy insurance as soon as you book a trip. You have time to look at options. The storm was not very strong and thankfully the island did not have much damage. Have a wonderful day, Tom and Lucinda

Wonderful time at Shorely Fun

  • 5 of 5

TOTALLY AWESOME; My husband & I and Harley (our pit bull) thank you so much for our wonderful vacation in your lovely home, can"t say enough about the house it had everything we needed for the wk. Kitchen was well equipped. The house was in the perfect location, this was our 2nd time to St. George but we really loved the bay side best. We really enjoyed fishing & catching crabs off the dock every day plus listening to oyster radio 100.5.The sunsets were breathtaking. WE also enjoyed the game room & hot tub. The weather was perfect only rained 1 night .We rode the bikes one day on the island (it had been a long time since we had rode bikes but it was really fun) . It was truly the best vacation we've ever had , hope to be able to rent this house again next year with the new pool. If you ever decide to sell Please call us .We have fallen in love with St. George Island and want to retire there. Thank you again for a very relaxing vacation we hated to leave. ps: harley had so much fun catching crabs at night at the ocean it was so funny. Thank you so much for calling us to see if we arrived safely. We hope there was no damage done to the house from hurricane Hermine.

Owner's Response: Hello! We are so happy that you enjoyed Shorely Fun. We decided that we enjoy staying on the bay side better than the beach side. It has a calmer atmosphere. Actually, Shorely Fun is probably going to be our retirement home!! The storm didn't cause much damage- just some flooding and sand under the house. But that is why the house is on stilts! Thank you for straying at Shorely fun. We hope you will stay at one of our homes again in the future. Warm regards, Tom and Lucinda
