Great Vacation    Jul 13, 2019

We had a great time on our vacation in Serendipity at St. George Island. The house is well maintained and has all of the amenities needed for a great time. The house's location was perfect and we were able to walk to the island's shops and restaurants. The 3 bedrooms with their own bath were perfect as we took our two grown children and their families. Great Vacation!!

Lucinda and Tom Roenicke's reply:

Hello John; thank you for staying at Serendipity. We are thrilled that you enjoyed the house, location and all the amenities. We try to offer everything that guests will need for a wonderful vacation. We hope yo will stay at one of our FL homes or TN cabins again the the future. Warm regards. Tom and Lucinda


Perfect location and great rental    May 18, 2019

This property was the perfect location to the ocean and for restaurants and activities. The property was well maintained and had all amenities. The game room and hot tub were an added bonus and the decks and quality of deck furniture were great. It was a fabulous time. Definately plan to return and also to check out their other properties in Tn.

Lucinda and Tom Roenicke's reply:

Hello Melanie; we are so happy that you enjoyed Serendipity's location and all the amenities. We hope you will return to one of our properties again in the future! Have a great day, Tom and Lucinda

Amazing Place    Sep 29, 2018

From the moment we arrived we could see that the owners had gone above and beyond to make everything perfect for a family vacation. The home was beautiful and located in one of the best places on the island! The game room, hot tub and bicycles were a wonderful added bonus. It was like they added every little extra thing that they themselves would want to have. Even things like griddles and waffle irons. Hopefully will make this our regular place for St George Island!

Lucinda and Tom Roenicke's reply:

Hello Shawn We are so happy that you enjoyed Serendipity's location and amenities. We appreciate that you recognized the thought and planning that went into Serendipity. We really do try to make all of our homes as comfortable as possible for our guests. We hope that you will stay in one of our FL houses or TN cabins again in the future. Warm regards, Tom and Lucinda

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.
