Bay Front House! Amazing Sunset Views! Private Pool, HotTub, Dock, Pool table, Foosball, WiFi

The name Sunset Retreat is perfect for this house- you will see why when you see the spectacular sunsets right from this bay front house.  The beautiful wide open water views are endless!

Your family and friends will enjoy this spacious waterfront front home with many amenities,  including hot tub, boat dock, hot/cold private outdoor shower and bicycles to tour the island!  Of course you can take a plunge in the 12x27' private swimming poo too!

In additon to cable TV and a stero system, there is Wi-Fi throughout the house and a telephone with free local and long distance calls.

Sunset Retreat is a roomy 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom home.  The living space has an open floor plan which is great for entertaining and the wall of windows lets in the stunning view and plenty of light.
There is a large dining table as well a snack bar to enjoy your meals.  Sunset Retreat has plenty of space in the  living room for the entire family to watch cable on the large HD TV or stream a movie on the blu-ray DVD.  Listen to your favorite music or local Oyster radio on the stereo which has IPOD docking,  radio and CD player.

The master bedroom has a king bed and attached renovated bathroom with a walk in shower.  Walk through the sliding door to savor your morning coffee on the expansive deck.  The second bedroom has a  queen bed and a twin/twin bunk bed. Both bedrooms are spacious and bright with plenty of windows and feature HD cable TV.     The second bathroom has a tub/shower combo and has been renovated.  There is a pack and play for our small guests  and a dog crate for the furry ones!

The kitchen, with full size appliances, is very large and well equipped. In addition to plenty of pots, pans, cooking utensils, dinnerware, serving platters, glassware, etc., we also supply a slow cooker, waffle iron, baking pans, electric griddle  and popcorn maker!!   There is plenty of cabinets and counter space for you to use.
The full size washing machine and dryer are located on the living level- no need to climb stairs to do laundry!!

There is plenty of room and seating on the new oversized decks for dining al fresco or lounging on a chaise or rocker while taking in the view.   Head down the stairs to the oversized yard which is partially fenced.   Watch the pelicans and dolphins without leaving the house! 
You can tie-up your boat at the private dock or  kayak right from the back yard!  The dock  has water, a fish cleaning sink and electricity as well as a bench for fishing from the dock or just relaxing on the water!! 
Under the house is a game room with a full size pool table and a foosball table and a picnic table to enjoy meals next to the pool.

Sunset Retreat is located in a quiet area, only minutes to restaurants, shopping  and the St. George Island light house.   Beach access is a few blocks away.  We provide a cooler chest,  bikes, beach chairs, beach umbrellas and beach towels so you don't need to pack them!

When you're done with the day's activities, enjoy a soak in the hot tub or a swim in the p[ool before preparing the day's catch on the park-style charcoal grill.    

A four seat and a 6 seat golf cart are available at discounted rates to our guests on a first come first serve basis. Please ask for more information.
You will appreciate all the amenities in addition to the amazing views and sunsets.   Sunset Retreat will provide the exquisite vacation you want every year!

Super View    Nov 10, 2017

This property has a unbelievable view of the bay! We had an awesome time eating and just sitting on the large deck with it's great furniture and enjoying the water and sunsets. The large windows on the front of the house provide a perfect view even if it is raining or cold. We also enjoyed the hot tub at night and fishing off the dock during the day. Also, it has very comfortable beds which is unusual for a rental.

Lucinda and Tom Roenicke's reply:

Hello Janice: We are so happy you enjoyed Sunset Retreat and all the amenities. We try to provide our guests will all the comforts of home- including good mattresses! We hope you will return again soon. Warm regards, Tom and Lucinda

Fred R

This place is fantastic!!!! It was so nice ! It has everything you could ever need !!    Nov 03, 2017

All I can say is it’s the best time we have had in years! The place is so nice an has everything you need ! Everything was very clean ! The beds slept great ! I give this place a 10 . We can’t wait to go back !!!!

Lucinda and Tom Roenicke's reply:

Hello Fred it is so great to hear that you had a wonderful time at Sunset Retreat. In November we will add a covered 10 x17' gazebo on the deck and replace the bedroom carpeting with porcelan tile floors ! We are looking forward to welcome you back another time Tom + Lucinda


Loved the house, yard and dock.    Oct 13, 2017

The house was just right for the 5 adults in our party. I could let my dog out without having to put him on a leash. I caught a few trout off the dock and the sunsets were amazing.

Lucinda and Tom Roenicke's reply:

Hello Having 2 rescue dogs ourselves we know to appreciate the convenience of a fenced in yard with direct access from the deck. Must be nice to catch your dinner of the private dock at the house while enjoying the sun setting into the bay. We are glad you liked Sunset Retreat. Thank you for staying with us. Tom + Lucinda


Amazing    Sep 22, 2017

This property was perfect for our family. We've stayed in SGI before but Gulf front so I was a little hesitant about this property since it's bay front. It totally surpassed my expectations! The sunsets over the bay are priceless. My husband couldn't get enough fishing off the bay...making several trips to the bait store daily lol. The house had everything we needed and included beach chairs & toys as well as bikes. My daughter had a great time in the pool and hot tub after long days on the beach. The house is very clean and well maintained. The beds were sooooo comfy...not your typical rental! The owners were wonderful to work with. We would definitely stay there again.

Lucinda and Tom Roenicke's reply:

Hello Cher We are very happy that you and your family enjoyed Sunset Retreat! We also were "beach side" people until we stayed on the bay- we now prefer the bay! With the beach just a few blocks away, you can have the best of both worlds. we hope you will return to one of our SGI homes or TN cabins in the future. All the best, Tom and Lucinda

Tara A.


Sunsets are absolutely beautiful! The house was perfect and had everything we needed. We had the pleasure of meeting the owner, Tom. He was nice enough to show us one of his other rentals. We will definitely be renting from them again and would recommend them to anyone! Wonderful stay!

Lucinda and Tom Roenicke's reply:

Hi Tara It was a pleasure meeting you as well while I was on the Island to make sure everything was ok after the Hurricane Irma. We are happy you enjoyed Sunset Retreat and its amenities as much as your dog enjoyed the fenced in yard. Looking forward to welcome you back at one of our houses on St. George Island Tom + Lucinda


Beautiful Sunsets and Relaxation Time with Family    Aug 12, 2017

Beautiful property, perfect setting...our family of 4 rate this as one of our most memorable vacations. We have two sons who attend college in Tallahassee and the house was the perfect set up with the pool, dock for fishing, pool table and foosball table. They were content and it allowed us all to reconnect. We ate most of our meals in the large kitchen, taking in the beautiful water views and played board games at night. Perfect trip. Thank you for sharing your lovely home.

Lucinda and Tom Roenicke's reply:

Hello Tara We are glad you enjoyed Sunset Retreat to it's fullest - it is a perfect place for a small family vacation and the layout and amenities allows everybody to have their own space if needed. In November the 2 bedrooms will be tiled to replace the carpeting. Thank you for staying at Sunset Retreat Tom + Lucinda


The beach is less than 1/4 mile.  You can easily walk, bike or drive there.  
No you don't!  We provide beach chairs, beach towels, cooler chest beach umbrellas and more! 

Sunset Retreat is less than 1 mile to the Lghthouse, restaurants and attractions.
Yes you can.  There is even a bench on the dock for your comfort.
