Description

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!

Wonderful Bay aside Home!    Aug 29, 2020

review star

We have been coming to SGI for over 10yrs. We always stay gulf front but decided to try bay fro t this year. We were not disappointed. The house is beautiful and as many have stated the online photos do not do it justice. Tom and Linda were very kind and answered all my pre-arrival questions quickly. This was also our first year to book direct and will definitely do that again. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home Tom and Linda we had a great time!

Hello Debra We are so happy that you enjoyed the bay side and Sunset Retreat. Many "beach side" guests are pleasantly surprised with the bay. We love the views, privacy and sunsets! We hope you will stay at one of our homes again in the future. Warm regards, Tom and Lucinda

Sunset Seclusion!    Mar 19, 2020

review star

What a wonderful time we had at this home! The location on the bay and the dock with a roof made for a sweet view of every evening sunset with no bugs! The pool was pristine clean and the hot tub worked wonders on us every evening after riding bikes. Tom and Lucinda take a special personal approach to renting and wanted to be sure we were happy with every detail. The home was a spotless clean as well! I will definitely be making this my yearly vacation rental. The neighbors were nice, too.

This was my 2nd stay in Sunset Retreat and I just love this home. The location is perfect and the bay front sunsets can’t be beat. The home has everything you need and then some. Tom and Lucinda are kind enough to provide bikes, beach chairs, etc. They are very responsive to any issues that arise.

Really great house and view    Jun 22, 2019

The pictures don't do justice to this house, especially the deck. The sunset view can't be beat. The pool is much bigger than it looks in the pictures, and we enjoyed lounging in the water on our floats. House is roomy and clean.

Wonderful as always!    Mar 09, 2019

This was our 3rd stay at Sunset Retreat and we are already booked at another Roenicke property for 2020. You can count on a well-stocked, meticulously maintained home when renting from Tom and Lucinda. SGI has become our go-to location for a spring getaway. Beautiful beaches, no traffic, fishing, biking, kayaking - it has it all!

Lucinda and Tom Roenicke's reply:

Hello Jane; we are so happy that you enjoy staying on SGI and in our homes. We like to provide many amenities that our guests will enjoy. It was a pleasure meeting you and look forward to seeing you next year. Have a wonderful day! Warm regards, Tom and Luicnda

Relaxing    Aug 04, 2018

My Husband and I and our adult children stayed for over a week. Beautiful. We saw dolphin nearly every morning. Enjoyed the hot tub and pool. There are very nice beaches near the home. It was really convenient not to bring beach chairs and beach umbrellas with us from Illinois. This home is well stocked in the kitchen area. The surrounding area is super quiet and laid back. We brought our German Shepherd with us, the fenced in back yard was perfect for him. Had a great time! We would definitely stay here again.

Lucinda and Tom Roenicke's reply:

Hello Gloria We are so happy that you enjoyed Sunset Retreat! We love the location and watching the dolphins from the deck is our favorite thing to see!! We hope you will stay at Sunset Retreat or one of our SGI or TN houses in the future. Have a great day, Tom and Lucinda

FANTASTIC WEEK AT SUNSET RETREAT    May 04, 2018

review star

Our week at Sunset Retreat was amazing. The views were incredible. The fishing off the dock was good. Watched the dolphins swim right by everyday. Enjoyed the hot tub, pool table, and swimming pool. Sunset Retreat has it all. Anything needed in the kitchen was all there. The linens were higher quality than most rental properties, and even provided extras. Beds were comfortable. Can't say anything negative about it. Sunset Retreat has it all. You won't be disappointed.

Hello Kelly We are so happy that you enjoyed Sunset Retreat! We try hard to offer our guests everything they need to have a wonderful vacation. Thank you for noticing the extras that we provide!! We hope you will return to Sunset Retreat or one of our other homes on SGI or cabins in Gatlinburg. Have a wonderful day, Tom and Lucinda

Excellent!    Apr 12, 2018

review star


We loved this house! It is the perfect size and has every amenity we could ask for. The pool, hot tub and game room were huge bonuses for our kids. The outdoor furniture was top notch, I probably could have slept out there in the rocking chair. Even small things such as good quality oyster knives were stocked in the house. Tom was also very helpful in getting the golf cart to me at the residence. I will always look first at their properties when booking trips to SGI. If I could add one thing, and this is by no means any negative reflection on this property, I would ask Tom and Luncinda (or anyone building/renovating a rental) to consider making one of their properties either partially or fully handicap accessible. It's incredibly difficult to find anything in the price range of their homes that accommodates a wheelchair. But again, that's a personal issue and luckily we can manage some steps with our family member that has a wheelchair. Thank you so much!

Lucinda and Tom Roenicke's reply:

Hello Wendy; We are so happy you enjoyed Shorely Fun! Having a game room, in addition to the pool and hot tub is a huge plus for our guests. We like to provide our guests with great amenities so they can have a relaxing, enjoyable vacation. We understand the need for being handicap accessible, however with a stilt home in a flood zone there are limited options. There are some ground level homes on the island that may work better for someone with a wheel chair. We hope you will select one of our homes again in the future. Warm regards, Tom and Lucinda

This was our second stay at Sunset Retreat and we’re already booked for 2019. Once again, we found everything we needed and more. We had an issue early in our visit and Tom immediately answered our email and made every thing right. We highly recommend any of Tom and Lucinda’s properties, because they have high standards and you know they’ll respond if you need them.
