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!

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!!

Absolutely wonderful.    Nov 09, 2021

review star

Stayed a week at Sunset Retreat and no disappointments to be found. View is wonderful and the dolphin visits were the best. While having lunch on the deck 3 eagles did a few circles over the house. That was unbelievable. I truly believe any home you rent from Tom and Lucinda will meet all your expectations of a great vacation.

Second time to Sunset Retreat and just as amazing as the first. This house has everything you need for a great vacation. Beautiful sunsets, dolphins visit almost every day and eagles making circles above the deck. You will be pleased with any house that Tom and Lucinda manage. Top notch owners and first class properties.

A (our) place of paradise on earth!    Oct 24, 2021

review star

Well, it never disappoints, it's not just the house, butt the location (who needs the beach)! Tom & Lucinda are amazing hosts, they have such attention to detail, and work hard to ensure everything is up and working as it is intended, they go out of their way to ensure you enjoy your vacation. But I should not be telling you all this because, 'it's our little secret'!

Lucinda and Tom Roenicke's reply:

Hello Brian First of all thank you for being a loyal guest in several of our houses for many many years. It is always a pleasure having Maggie and you as such wonderful guests. Looking forward to see you again in January. Tom and Lucinda

Relaxation!!!    Sep 04, 2021

review star

An amazing house that provided a much need vacation of rest and relaxation. The pool was perfect and the sunsets are absolutely breathtaking. The fenced in yard was a major plus for our little Cooper. More lights in the backyard would have been a plus but otherwise we had a perfect vacation.

Lucinda and Tom Roenicke's reply:

Dear Angela and Larry We are so happy that you enjoyed Sunset Retreat, the area and location. You can see why we chose the name!! We hope you will stay at one of our homes again in the future. Have a great day. Warm regards, Tom and Lucinda

Amazing!    Aug 21, 2021

review star

All I have to say my kids didn’t want to leave. We are a family of 6 and the house was perfect for us. We loved the dock for fishing caught several fish to eat there. The pool was wonderful for the kids and the fence gave me peace of mind for them so they could play in the sand or the hermit crabs that like to come visit. The pack and play was in wonderful condition. The kitchen has all the amenities. The only thing I would upgrade is the kids tv with a Roku. At night they wanted to watch Netflix movies and they all would come to the living room which was nice in some ways. Beds all were clean and the patio furniture was amazing.

Lucinda and Tom Roenicke's reply:

Hi Linda Thank you for staying at sunset Retreat. We are so happy that you and your family enjoyed your stay and all the amenities. We are pretty certain there is a smart TV in that bedroom. We hope you will stay at one of our homes again in the future. Have a great day. Warm regards, Tom and Lucinda

Has It All    May 01, 2021

review star

This home had everything we needed. I have been coming to the island for over 40 years & this rental is the best equipped home I have ever stayed in. The view is gorgeous & location is great! Besides fishing from the dock, enjoying the ever changing bay & sunsets, watching visiting dolphins, there are the pool, game room, & hot tub. The fenced yard for my dogs is something I hadn’t had before on the island & was GREATLY appreciated.

Lucinda and Tom Roenicke's reply:

Hello Luci We are so happy you enjoyed Island Oasis and it makes us proud to hear what you say. We hope to have you back in the near future - be it at Sunset Retreat or any of our other houses on the Island Tom + Lucinda

Glorious Time on the Bayside    Oct 30, 2020

review star

We fully enjoyed our stay at "Sunset Retreat". The home was comfortable and the views from the living room and the boat deck were amazing. We cooked most of our meals and the kitchen was set up just right. Our dogs were able to join us and run around the fenced-in property and the large deck... almost felt like home! We felt relaxed and peaceful, even through the pandemic and the week of the presidential election. Our thanks to Lucinda and Tom for providing such a sweet respite for us travelers.

Lucinda and Tom Roenicke's reply:

Hello Patty; We are so happy that you enjoyed Sunset Retreat and all the amenities. Having a fenced in yard is definitely a bonus with dogs! We hope you will stay at one of our homes in the future. Happy holidays, Tom and Lucinda

Beautiful Bayside Home    Oct 17, 2020

review star

We had a wonderful stay at Sunset Retreat. It was our first time staying on the bayside. The sunsets were amazing, and we enjoyed watching the dolphins from dock. The home had everything we needed. The fenced in yard was a bonus having dogs, but our mini labradoodle was a sand burr magnet. We didn’t want to leave!! Tom and Lucinda checked in with us to see if we had any questions. It was nice to know that they were available, if needed. We would definitely stay at this property or another one of their properties again!

Lucinda and Tom Roenicke's reply:

Hello Kim; Thank you for staying at Sunset Retreat and for trying the bay side! Like you, we always wanted to be on the beach, but after trying the bay we now don't know which we like best!! We hope you will stay at one of our homes again in the future. Warm regards, Tom and Lucinda

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!

Lucinda and Tom Roenicke's reply:

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.

Lucinda and Tom Roenicke's reply:

Hello Heather, We are thrilled that you enjoyed Sunset Retreat! Thank you for you nice comments. We try hard to make our homes comfortable for our guests and supply amenities that we think you will enjoy. We hope you will visit SGI again and stay in one of our homes. Warm regards, Tom and Lucinda

Favorite SGI Home    Nov 25, 2019

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.
