Best Vacation Ever    Jul 02, 2018

The location on the bay was great. There were beautiful sunsets every night and all I had to do was step out the door to enjoy. The house was roomy and fit our family of 7 comfortably. We loved the pool. Having bikes available made getting around the island easy. The whole family agreed the best vacation on St. George Island ever.

Lucinda and Tom Roenicke's reply:

Hello Bob We are glad you had a great time at Shorely Fun. The location, views, free bikes, swimming pool, game room makes it a favored vacation spot. WE already are booking for summer 2019 Thank you for staying with us Tom + Lucinda

Shannon S.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will definitely be back!    Jun 15, 2018

The owners are so easy to work with and get in touch with. They checked on us and made sure our experience was perfect! The home has everything you would want and more! Such a guest-centered place! We can’t thank you enough for sharing it with us!

Lucinda and Tom Roenicke's reply:

Hello Shannon Thank you fort staying at Shorely Fun. We are happy that you had a great vacation and enjoyed the house with its location and all the extra amenities. We would love to have you back. Half of June and July 2019 is already booked. Shorely Fun tends to book well in advance Thank again for choosing Shorely Fun Tom + Lucinda

Kendra C.

Wonderful property    Jun 01, 2018

What doesn’t this property have??? There’s something for everyone! A dock for fishing, huge deck for lounging at sunset, and the pool is just the right size. It’s beautiful view allows you to have an awesome vacation without leaving the premises. It was very clean and roomy for our 5 people. House is extremely well equipped with all you need. We took our German Shepherd and were very pleased to find the house doesn’t smell like dogs which is amazing in a pet friendly rental! We will definitely visit this home again, Tom and Lucinda were excellent hosts & on island during our stay. When told about a minor issue with the bicycles, they had someone there within an hour to take care of it. Couldn’t have been more pleased with this home!

Lucinda and Tom Roenicke's reply:

Hi Kendra We are thrilled that you enjoyed Shorely Fun! We try hard to provide all the amenities that our guest would enjoy during their stay. We appreciate being told if something is broken or needs replacement- as you see we act fast! We hope you will stay in one of our homes in TN or FL again. Warm regards, Tom and Lucinda

Lovely Bayside Experience!    May 18, 2018

We had never stayed on the bay before, but were pleasantly surprised how relaxing and peaceful it was. The property and setting were exceptional, and convenient to everything. The house had all the amenities we needed and a lot of extras. We really enjoyed the pool and outdoor space. If I had to put one thing on the improvement list, that would be to put in a boat ramp on the property. Not sure that's feasible, but it would make the property even more attractive. Thank you for sharing your home!

Lucinda and Tom Roenicke's reply:

Hello Bridget We are so happy you enjoyed your first stay on the Bayside. The Environment Protection Agency does not issue new permits to install boat ramps - especially in areas that are protected by any sort of seawall. We assume you only gave us a 4 star rating because their is no boat ramp ? As we mentioned - there is one 2 houses down the road that our guests can use ….. Anyway we are glad you liked Shorely Fun with all its extra amenities and hope you will be back some time Tom + Lucinda

Lori M

We had a wonderful time. The house was great and the view was amazing.    May 04, 2018

We had amazing sunsets. Dolphins visited daily. Had one of the best vacations. The house had everything we needed. We were able to leave our boat in the water all week. Did a lot of fishing. Enjoyed the pool everyday. We will definitely stay here again.

Lucinda and Tom Roenicke's reply:

Hi Lori We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay at Shorely Fun! We try hard to provide our guests with everything they need (and more!) to have a fantastic vacation. We hope you will stay at one of our homes again in the future. Warm regards, Tom and Lucinda

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

Patricia K.

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
