Ellen W.

This place was absolutely wonderful!    Aug 04, 2018

We loved our stay at Serendipity! The setting, right on the ocean, could not be beat. And we loved being right in the center of town! We took our two grown children and their spouses. The three bedrooms each with own bath allowed the right amount of privacy while the back deck was ideal for sitting, talking and looking for shooting stars. The house was very well equipped and the air conditioner worked extremely well, despite heat indexes of 104 degrees. We all agreed we want to return to St George Island and specifically to Serendipity!

Lucinda and Tom Roenicke's reply:

Hello Ellen We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay at Serendipity. We agree that the layout with 3 bedroom suites and location on the beach and close to town cannot be beat! We hope you will stay at Serendipity or one of our other homes in the future. Warm regards, Tom and Lucinda


Gorgeous serene island    Jul 28, 2018

It was very nice. Tom responded quickly to the couple issues we had. Kitchen had everything you need; beautiful scene from the two decks; tv's worked great; nice showers; fun playroom; so close to the beach; island is peaceful and perfect for your summer vacation. Hope to go back again soon!

Lucinda and Tom Roenicke's reply:

Hello Stephanie We are thrilled that you enjoyed SGI and Serendipity with all the amenities the house provides. We were happy to have had a new laundry basket brought over to you (things sometimes disappear and we apologize that one was not there when you arrived) We are always available to resolve any issues or answer any questions our guests have. We hope you will stay in one of our SGI homes or Gatlinburg cabins again in the future. Warm regards, Tom and Lucinda

Kim D

Great property loved the proximity to everything    Jul 13, 2018

Loved the property , Only thing I would suggest is to fix the master door to the deck . Need to be able to close it without locking the deadbolt so you can come in straight from the beach . We parked the cars and walked to everything... beach if course.... also happy hour, shrimp truck , donut shop , dinner it was great

Lucinda and Tom Roenicke's reply:

Hello Kim We are happy you enjoyed Serendipity. It's location is indeed ideal to enjoy a car free week there. On Saturday when you left we had the door handles and locks changed out Thank you for staying with us Tom + Lucinda

Cory S

Very Nice Place    Jun 15, 2018

House was in a great location. I was initially worried about being next to the public beach but it possed no problem whatsoever. The house was very comfortable, well decorated, and was in any excellent location. The underside of the house was semifinished with hot tub and game room. It also stayed unbelievably cool during the day.

Lucinda and Tom Roenicke's reply:

Hello Cory Thanks for the nice words. The louvered n game room indeed is a great to hang out on a hot day and enjoy the breeze going through while enjoying the Pool Table, Foosball table or hot tub. We hope to welcome you back in the future - be it at Serendipity of any of our other 5 houses n the Island Thank you for staying at Serendipity Tom + Lucinda

Nicholas G.

Everything and More    Jun 01, 2018

The home is magnificent. The location is terrific. Everything is within walking distance. Walking out the back door directly onto the beach is exactly what our family was looking for. The owners attention to detail just added to the tremendous experience.

Lucinda and Tom Roenicke's reply:

Hello Nicholas We are so happy that you enjoyed Serendipity. We appreciate you noticing the attention we give to our properties. We want all of our guests to have a wonderful vacation in a comfortable home. We hope you will consider one of our homes for your next vacation. Warm regards, tom and Lucinda

Keith A.

Loved our stay!    May 25, 2018

This place was wonderful. The location is right in the middle of town so you are within walking distance to everything. There is a grocery store right across the street, along with coffee, Italian ice. The playground is right out the back door so if you have little kids its a big hit. The hot tub is also a very nice addition. The home is very roomy and the beds are comfortable. We would recommend this place to anyone.

Lucinda and Tom Roenicke's reply:

Hello Keith We are so happy that you enjoyed Serendipity and all the amenities. We love the location close to everything and being right on the beach. We hope you will stay at one of our houses again in the future. Have a wonderful day, Tom and Lucinda

Perfection!    Apr 28, 2018

Perfection! Stayed Apr 2018 This is our third stay at Serendipity. Perfect location for views of the lighthouse and ocean. Also great spot for walking the pups at the park. If you forget your puppy clean up bags the park even has a plastic bag stand. Loved being so close to all the restaurants. We were able to walk or bike to the shops and restaurants. The owners even supply bikes in their awesome game room below the house. The house is located next to the public beach walkway but it was never a problem. Being close to a grassy area for dog walking made up for that. The house is well stocked and very nice. The large top deck and with awesome outdoor seating offered spectacular views of the ocean and provided a great place to relax and enjoy your meals or read a book. The owners are very responsive to emails. Tom happened to be there redoing another house and stopped by. Serendipity is a great place to relax and rewind. St. George Island is a peaceful place.

Lucinda and Tom Roenicke's reply:

Hello Meg, We are thrilled that you enjoyed Serendipity and wonderful St. George Island! This is the perfect place to enjoy a relaxing vacation with family, friends and your dog! We appreciate your repeat business and hope you will return again! Warm regards, Tom and Lucinda


Wonderful Week in a Perfect Home    Dec 16, 2017

Serendipity is a wonderful place to spend your vacation. It is unquestionably in the best location on St. George Island. From the third floor bedroom windows, you can see from the bay to the ocean and from any room you can see the lighthouse. We were in easy walking distance to all the shops and restaurants. The weather was perfect - clear, cool and breezy. We had the beach nearly to ourselves.

This house is so well equipped that I can't think of a single thing we needed that wasn't provided. We enjoyed the game room and the beach chairs. There were bikes for all ages and sizes. The baby bed was very good quality and one of the easiest I have ever put together.

I can't say enough about the beds in this house. I have a bad back so I expect to be in pain by the end of the week in a rental house. But not at Serendipity. Every mattress in the house is the perfect combination of soft and firm. We all slept like babies.

The house is so clean when you arrive and everything is in perfect working order. But if anything ever goes wrong, Tom and Lucinda are so quick to respond. These amazing owners make renting this beautiful house an easy, pleasant experience.

We love St. George Island and can't wait to return. We have now stayed in two of Tom and Lucinda's houses and we are going to keep returning until we have tried them all or until they get tired of us!

Lucinda and Tom Roenicke's reply:

Hello Ronnie Thank you so much for your superb description of Serendipity and thank you for being a repeat customer for the 2nd year on St. George Island. Even though St. George is a small island all of our 5 houses have something different to offer, be it the location on the Beach or the Bay, Swimming pool at some, Boat docks at the 2 Bay front houses etc. All of them do have a hot tub, bicycles and a game room though. We are looking forward to have you back at one of them next year. Happy New Year Tom + Lucinda

Teresa H

Awesome Location!!!    Nov 24, 2017

We had a great time. House was very nice, had everything you might need while there and location is awesome...... right on beach and in walking distance of anywhere you might want to go, if you can tear yourself away from the view and the beach. Defiantly would stay here again!

Lucinda and Tom Roenicke's reply:

Hello Teresa Thank you for staying with us. We are glad you had a great time at Serendipity and enjoyed the house and its central location. The extra large deck - with privacy walls on neighbor's side and getting sunshine from the other side longer than any of the houses on the block makes it tough to leave the deck... Tom + Lucinda

Karen M

An Awesome Vacation    Oct 20, 2017

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay on St George Island. The house fit our needs, was well-stocked and we loved being able to bring our dog. The beach was beautiful and the water was so clear and blue. We will definitely be back

Lucinda and Tom Roenicke's reply:

Hello Karen We are so happy your enjoyed your first time on St. George Island. It is indeed a unique place and our 5 pet friendly houses on the Island makes it easy to find the house that fits. Thank you for choosing Serendipity Tom + Lucinda


Relaxing & everything you need    Aug 17, 2017

We didn't want to go home, beds slept very well, enjoyed everyday, really had everything you needed! Kids had a wonderful time playing pool, and riding bikes. Tom and Lucinda know how to make you feel like your at home. Town is quiet and everything is in walking distance. We can't wait to go back!

Lucinda and Tom Roenicke's reply:

Hello Olivia Serendipity is ideally located near all and its game room, beach gear, free bikes etc it makes it an easy vacation for families with kids - and easy to keep the kids busy. We are happy you enjoyed your stay Tom + Lucinda

Amazing vacation!    Jul 15, 2017

This was our 1st visit to St. George Island and we loved it. We've been renting beach houses all over the country for 20+ years and this was our favorite. The house is so rental friendly, the owners thought of everything. We brought our dogs and had family/friends staying in a house down the street and we were able to have dinners together and meet at the uncrowded beach during the day. We enjoyed the bikes, the hot tub, the outdoor shower and all the beach stuff. The beaches are beautiful and we saw dolphin every day. Thanks for sharing your home with us.
