Amazing house for amazing trip    Dec 09, 2017

We wanted to thank you so much for letting us enjoy your beautiful and amazing house.

This house made our vacation more exiting and enjoyable.

What a great and relaxing view!

We had fun fishing and watching many kind of birds flying around us.

Your house is equipped with all things the person can imagine especially the kitchen.

The game room and the hot tub let us enjoy more.

We thank you again Tom & Lucinda for your care even for small details.

Samir & Mary Azer

Lucinda and Tom Roenicke's reply:

Hello Samir and Mary; We are sop happy you enjoyed our home and beautiful SGI! We try hard to equip the house with all the amenities our guests would enjoy. We hope you will consider one of our houses on SGI or cabins in TN again in the future. Have a wonderful day, Tom and Lucinda

Paradise! Paradise! Paradise!    Nov 24, 2017

We cannot rate this beautiful bay front home more highly! Stunning, daily changing views and amazing sunsets at the end of the street. The bay and location is just breath taking. The home is gorgeous and well appointed, we never considered a non beach location (though its less than 10 mins walk), before, and we are so glad we booked Shorely Fun and have had the most amazing week (including our Chihuahua, Sarah). There is so I much to do if your a family, with their games room and hot tub, rent a canoe or paddle board on the bay, go crabbing on the rocks or jetty, ride the bikes up the quiet Floridian streets to the beach and so much more. If you love oysters, be sure to go to “Paddy’s Raw Bar, for a beer and fresh oysters - heavenly! Tom and Lucinda are a joy to deal with and are so responsive and helpful, it was a great pleasure to meet them (and their doggies)! SGI is a great destination and wonderfully eclectic and romantic, we cant wait to get back here and to stay at Shorely Fun - Thanks for making our vacation so wonderful! ‘Five Star’s !!!

Lucinda and Tom Roenicke's reply:

It was a real pleasure meeting you guys and your doggy while we happened to be on the Island as well doing some renovation at other houses. Most important we are happy you enjoyed Shorely Fun and St. George Island and hope to welcome you back one day. Tom + Lucinda

Peaceful week on the bay    Oct 14, 2017

This is a wonderful vacation home on the bay. The house was great with everything we needed. We fished off the dock, kayaked in the bay , played ping pong in the game room and rode bikes around time. Love love this ideal beach house and Tom and Lucinda are great hosts. They really care about our wants and needs. Super dog friendly as well ! Will definitely stay here again.

Lucinda and Tom Roenicke's reply:

Hello Joe-Pam: We are thrilled that you enjoyed Shorely fun and all it has to offer! SGI is a great place to bring your dog- it is very pet friendly (as are all our homes!) We hope you will return soon! Have a great 2018, Tom and Lucinda

A superb location for fisherman and non-fisherman    Oct 03, 2017

The house was very clean and well constructed. It was nice having all the living quarters on one floor and there was plenty of space for four adults, two dogs and two children. There were cleaning products and brooms/sweeper to help us keep the place neat. The pool and hot tub were constantly monitored by a pool service while we were there. We did spend more time at the pool than on the beach at the golf side. The location is absolutely excellent for dogs, kids and adults. There is a small beach area where the dogs can get in and swim, as well as to launch a couple kayaks. We have two german shephards and they enjoyed many hours on the large deck which has gates on either end. The location was very private and safe for the boys (ages 9 & 11) to grab a fishing pool and fish from the back of the house or from the private dock anytime they wanted. They had a blast catching crab too! The island itself has a very relaxing atmosphere and the restaurants were all within a bike or golf cart ride from the house. All the people we met (residents and vacationers) were very friendly. From the reactions we received from all the residents/shop owners, Tom and Lucinda are very well liked on the island. I would absolutely recommend anyone to stay at Shorely Fun if they are planning on visiting St. George Island.

Lucinda and Tom Roenicke's reply:

Hello Patricia Nothing makes us happier than when our guests enjoy a fabulous vacation in one of our homes on St. George Island or the Smoky Mountains. St. George Island is a wonderful place and we hope that one day we can at least spend part time on this unique Island. Thank you for choosing Shorely Fun. We hope you can make it back in the future Tom + Lucinda


Shorely Fun was awesome !!    Sep 15, 2017

We highly recommend Shorely Fun. The view is breathtaking!! The entire property was clean and well maintained. The house was the perfect size, all 3 bedrooms were a nice size, and the kitchen was loaded with everything needed. The gates on the porch were so nice to keep toddlers and fur babies to be able to enjoy being outside on the wonderful porch. The pool was beautiful. Oh and the sunsets wow !! The game room downstairs was an added bonus And I can't thank the owners enough. They were very prompt and helpful on all communication. This was our favorite family vacation !!

Lucinda and Tom Roenicke's reply:

Hello Janis It was a pleasure having you as a guest and more important - happy to hear you had a wonderful time at Shorely Fun. We are looking forward to have you back next year Tom + Lucinda

Angela M.

We absolutely loved this place. Awesome week.    Sep 01, 2017

Looking forward another week next year.

Lucinda and Tom Roenicke's reply:

Hello Angela thank you for the nice words - we are looking forward to have you back next year. Thank you for choosing Shorely Fun Tom + Lucinda

Caleb J

Great place on the bay.    Aug 18, 2017

Excellent view and good access to the water for fishing. Will definitely stay here again.

Lucinda and Tom Roenicke's reply:

Hello Caleb being able to fish right off of the dock at the house does make it an ideal fishing spot. We are glad you had a great time and are looking forward to welcome you back Tom + Lucinda

Jeanne K.

Perfect Setting    Aug 04, 2017

We rented this home so that our two children and two grandchildren (who live 1000 miles apart) could spend some time together. This place was perfect. Everyone enjoyed the short trip to the gulf in the golf cart and later a dip in the pool. The house has a very well equipped kitchen and beautiful gameroom, which was perfect when the rains came. We loved sitting on the deck and watching the dolphins and birds. When we notified Tom and Lucinda that the icemaker and water dispenser were not working, they arranged for a repairman to be there the next day. And then they surprised us with a beautiful gift basket of wine and goodies to compensate us for the inconvenience. Thank you Tom and Lucinda!!!

Lucinda and Tom Roenicke's reply:

Hello Jeanne It is great to hear that Shorely Fun was the "perfect house" for your family reunion vacation. It is a fun place for a great vacation with all it's extra amenities. We hope you welcome you back again next year. Thank you for choosing Shorely Fun Tom + Lucinda
