We stayed at Shorely Fun over spring break this year (2024) and had a wonderful time. The home was clean and well stocked with what we needed minus food of course. From the deck we were able to watch dolphins playing in the bay and eagles having a morning meal out by the dock. The weather was perfect for us and we spent evenings on the deck watching amazing sunsets! The only thing that confused us was going back and forth from central to eastern time depending on where we traveled on the coast. We didn’t even think of that. Tom and Lucinda were quick to respond to any questions or concerns we had! A truly amazing and relaxing experience.

Lucinda and Tom Roenicke's reply:

Hello Jim and Linda, Thank you for staying at Shorely Fun! We are so happy you enjoyed your stay!! The location is great for dolphin watching and sunsets!! When you travel west to Port St. Joe, your phone may switch back and forth from eastern time to central. On SGI and in Apalachicola we are 100% easter time zone! We hope you will return to one of our homes in the future. Warm regards, Tom and Lucinda

Beautiful views    Mar 30, 2024

review star

We had a beautiful family vacation at Shorely Fun. This was our first time staying on that side, but it definitely won’t be our last. From the beautiful sunrises and sunsets from the porch, to the fishing off the dock, the sandy beach that the little kids could play at and the pool, hot tub and game room. Everyone had a great time. Perfect home for a family, including your four-legged baby.

Lucinda and Tom Roenicke's reply:

Hello Brenda We are so happy that you enjoyed the bay side and Shorely Fun! It is a great location to enjoy the beautiful scenery and nature that surrounds SGI! The fenced area and gates on the deck make it perfect when traveling with your dogs! We hope you will stay at one of our homes again in the future! Warm regards, Tom and Lucinda

Christmas was Shorely Fun    Dec 27, 2023

review star

We stayed at Shorely Fun in December 2023 and had a wonderful time. This lovely home right on the bay is not only “all about the view”, but all the other amenities are fabulous as well. We love to cook and the views from the well stocked kitchen make it even more enjoyable. The game room and hot tub are an added bonus. I enjoyed fishing from the private dock and we loved the access for launching our kayaks. The house is well furnished throughout, the beds are really comfortable and everything was clean and neat upon arrival. We enjoyed the almost daily visits from the dolphins and there are many birds to watch and identify. Tom and Lucinda were really nice and immediately available if we had any questions. Needless to say, we can’t wait to come back in April!

Hi Kirk and Joan; We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay at Shorely Fun! It was a pleasure having stay at the house and appreciate you selecting one of our houses for your stay on SGI. We look forward to your return visit. Have a healthy and happy new year! Warm regards, Tom and Lucinda

Absolutely wonderful    Dec 27, 2023

review star

This was the second time we stayed we loved it so much the first time we returned just few months later my husband and kids loved to kayak right from the house and I loved that I could watch them while our little one played right in the bay and in the sand. The house is beautiful and also loved how safe it was for our 4 legged babies also . The dolphins and birds were absolutely wonderful to watch and the owners are wonderful as well we cannot wait to return

Beautiful location    Nov 18, 2023

review star

We just left SGI after a week stay in Shorely Fun. The home was in a great location right on the bay. The home was clean, equipped with everything you need. We are a family that cooks while on vacation and the only negative thing I would say is that the pots and pans need to be replaced. We loved the fenced in area for our pups. We would definitely recommend this house for anyone looking to stay on the bay.

Lucinda and Tom Roenicke's reply:

Hi Christina Thank you for staying at Shorely Fun. We are happy that you enjoyed your stay. We are concerned about your comments about the pans- as you know we were on the island and could have brought you any pot or pan you needed. After your departure, we checked them. We that day replace 1 large pot and frying pan. We appreciate you letting us know that something needed attention. We hope you will stay again at one of our homes. Warm regards, Tom and Lucinda

House is exactly as listed. Bay side was quiet and calm. Used dock to fish. Kayaked right from house. Clean. Loved the open layout for the kitchen and living areas. Great deck for the bay views with sun or shade all thru the day.

This was our first time to the island and we fell in love not only with the island but the house . We got to enjoy the calm of the bay and close enough to have fun in some waves at the beach only to end our day watching dolpins swimming playing pool and the hot tub we cannot wait to come back . Loved it was so dog friendly as well the dogs loved playing in the sand Owners are very sweet It’s a must if your going to the island

Love this Bay house    May 13, 2023

review star

We have been going to St. George Island for more than 20 years and until the last 2 years, stayed on the Gulf side. Last year and then again this year, we stayed on the Bay. We selected Shorely Fun because it is dog friendly with a fenced in area for our pooch and has a very convenient water-level launch area for our kayak. The house itself was spacious with wall-to-wall windows to see breath-taking sunsets and sunrises, pelicans, and some dolphins. The living room furniture was comfortable and there was sufficient seating for us on the 2 couches when watching TV at night. A larger family group would however, benefit from more seating. The 2 master bedrooms had everything we needed and the extra thick mattresses were a plus. The kitchen was well-equipped and when we asked that a blender be replaced, Tom and Lucinda arranged that it be delivered within hours. The pool and surrounding area were the cleanest we have ever experienced on SGI and the furniture was in pristine condition. The only thing it lacked was a shady area that a large umbrella would have fixed. Because we did not have a stand for use on concrete, we could not use our own beach umbrella for this purpose. The hottub under the house was an added bonus and it was possible to view the bay while soaking in it. In sum, our stay at Shorely Fun was spectacular and we would highly recommend it to anyone. We loved staying on the bay and the house’s location from the Gulf made it possible for us to easily walk to the beach with our gear or make the short drive in the morning to set up our chairs/umbrella.

Lucinda and Tom Roenicke's reply:

Hello Michele; We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay at Shorely Fun and all the amenities it has to offer. We love the bay and being so close to the beach, its the best of both worlds! Being right on the water, umbrellas do not work well (after a half dozen, we stopped trying!) . There is covered seating just outside the game room that guests seem to enjoy. We look forward to your visit next year. Have a wonderful day. Warm regards, Tom and Lucinda

Amazing    Apr 15, 2023

review star

My family has been coming to SGI for over 30 years. We actually stayed in this house 16 years ago and was totally amazed at the improvements. The view is amazing, it was well furnished and had everything we needed. Having beach towels was great and something I’ve never seen in any other house we’ve stayed in. We are already planning a trip back to this house next year. Tom and Lucinda are excellent hosts. This is the 2nd house we’ve rented from them and already have another trip booked in October for Lazy Daze. Shorely Fun is my favorite house on the bay.

Best View & Perfect Home    Feb 27, 2023

review star

This was our first time staying in Shorely Fun and one of Tom & Lucinda’s properties. We have been coming to SGI for 10 years and finally found a home that met and exceeded all of our needs and wants. The view and deck are indescribable. Having two Main bedrooms with en suites is also a plus in the event of company and the third bedroom is extremely accommodating w a third bath across the hall. The house is equipped with everything you need and items you didn’t even know you wanted. Perhaps the best part is the cleanliness and up to date painting. Not a scrape on any wall! Unbelievable in a rental. Did I mention fenced in yard for your fur babies! The pool was too cool to use in Jan/Feb, but the hot tub was perfect. We finally found our forever vacation rental on SGI. Thank you.

Just as pictured... only better!    Feb 27, 2023

review star

Shorely Fun was exactly as pictured. It was super clean and welcoming. The whole house was comfortable and relaxing. The kitchen had everything we needed and more. It even had a shelf of basics, such as common spices and oils. The game room was well-used and we had countless "not-so-friendly" tournaments at the pool table. .The pool was ready for us, and was where I earned my first sunburn of 2023. The small beach was used to launch my little sailboat. The fenced in yard area was a wonderful surprise for our dog. I wanted a vacation of memories, and certainly got my wish! Tom and Lucinda cam out within hours to replace two burned out light bulbs. While that sounds trivial, it made a major difference for someone with vision impairment. I would highly recommend this house. Thank you for sharing Shorely Fun.
