Super View

This property has a unbelievable view of the bay! We had an awesome time eating and just sitting on the large deck with it's great furniture and enjoying the water and sunsets. The large windows on the front of the house provide a perfect view even if it is raining or cold. We also enjoyed the hot tub at night and fishing off the dock during the day. Also, it has very comfortable beds which is unusual for a rental.

Loved the house, yard and dock.

The house was just right for the 5 adults in our party. I could let my dog out without having to put him on a leash. I caught a few trout off the dock and the sunsets were amazing.

This property was perfect for our family. We've stayed in SGI before but Gulf front so I was a little hesitant about this property since it's bay front. It totally surpassed my expectations! The sunsets over the bay are priceless. My husband couldn't get enough fishing off the bay...making several trips to the bait store daily lol. The house had everything we needed and included beach chairs & toys as well as bikes. My daughter had a great time in the pool and hot tub after long days on the beach. The house is very clean and well maintained. The beds were sooooo comfy...not your typical rental! The owners were wonderful to work with. We would definitely stay there again.

Sunsets are absolutely beautiful! The house was perfect and had everything we needed. We had the pleasure of meeting the owner, Tom. He was nice enough to show us one of his other rentals. We will definitely be renting from them again and would recommend them to anyone! Wonderful stay!

Beautiful Sunsets and Relaxation Time with Family

Beautiful property, perfect setting...our family of 4 rate this as one of our most memorable vacations. We have two sons who attend college in Tallahassee and the house was the perfect set up with the pool, dock for fishing, pool table and foosball table. They were content and it allowed us all to reconnect. We ate most of our meals in the large kitchen, taking in the beautiful water views and played board games at night. Perfect trip. Thank you for sharing your lovely home.

Perfect house to rent if you find happiness/peace in the view of the bay

5/5 This is the third house we have rented on the island and it is by far my favorite. The views from the kitchen, living room, and master bedroom are amazing. The house is right on the bay and is extremely peaceful. You also get blessed to see dolphins!!! We had one five feet from the dock. The dock is incredible also. The dock area is covered and has a bench. My husband, daughter, and I spent time out there drinking coffee and watching for dolphins. The deck off the house is perfect. My husband and I spent about two hours every morning drinking coffee, watching the view, and talking. I am not a morning person, but this special time got me up each day!! The house was comfortable and clean. The beds were very comfortable. The kitchen was well equipped to cook and, it was wonderful to cook for your family while looking out all the surrounding windows at the bay. There is a very nice pool to swim or exercise in and if you turn your head, you can view the bay from your own private pool!! There is also a hot tub on the lower dock to relax in.... while looking at the bay. There is also a pool table to enjoy. We also met the maintenance man that comes and checks on the property during the week. We had two days of storms and the wind blew some palm tree leaves in the pool and that was promptly cleaned up after the storm. We highly recommend!!!!!

Nice bayfront home!

We had a great week at Sunset Retreat. It was perfect for our family of four.

Our week at Sunset Retreat was amazing. The views were incredible. The fishing off the dock was good. Watched the dolphins swim right by everyday. Enjoyed the hot tub, pool table, and swimming pool. Sunset Retreat has it all. Anything needed in the kitchen was all there. The linens were higher quality than most rental properties, and even provided extras. Beds were comfortable. Can't say anything negative about it. Sunset Retreat has it all. You won't be disappointed.

We loved this house! It is the perfect size and has every amenity we could ask for. The pool, hot tub and game room were huge bonuses for our kids. The outdoor furniture was top notch, I probably could have slept out there in the rocking chair. Even small things such as good quality oyster knives were stocked in the house. Tom was also very helpful in getting the golf cart to me at the residence. I will always look first at their properties when booking trips to SGI. If I could add one thing, and this is by no means any negative reflection on this property, I would ask Tom and Luncinda (or anyone building/renovating a rental) to consider making one of their properties either partially or fully handicap accessible. It's incredibly difficult to find anything in the price range of their homes that accommodates a wheelchair. But again, that's a personal issue and luckily we can manage some steps with our family member that has a wheelchair. Thank you so much!

Beautiful property and fantastic owners

This was our second stay at Sunset Retreat and we’re already booked for 2019. Once again, we found everything we needed and more. We had an issue early in our visit and Tom immediately answered our email and made every thing right. We highly recommend any of Tom and Lucinda’s properties, because they have high standards and you know they’ll respond if you need them.

My Husband and I and our adult children stayed for over a week. Beautiful. We saw dolphin nearly every morning. Enjoyed the hot tub and pool. There are very nice beaches near the home. It was really convenient not to bring beach chairs and beach umbrellas with us from Illinois. This home is well stocked in the kitchen area. The surrounding area is super quiet and laid back. We brought our German Shepherd with us, the fenced in back yard was perfect for him. Had a great time! We would definitely stay here again.

Wonderful as always!

This was our 3rd stay at Sunset Retreat and we are already booked at another Roenicke property for 2020. You can count on a well-stocked, meticulously maintained home when renting from Tom and Lucinda. SGI has become our go-to location for a spring getaway. Beautiful beaches, no traffic, fishing, biking, kayaking - it has it all!
