Quiet and secluded area.

Hello – My name is Tim Riordan and I have hosted over 1,000 families from all over the world since 2005 and generally speaking it’s been a great experience.
Our average booking is 4 nights with typical stays ranging from 3 to 7 nights. Occasionally we’ll get bookings that are 2 to 8 weeks long with the latter being in the January to March time frame only. Well behaved children and pets are most welcome. Quiet, responsible drinkers are welcome and smokers are welcome, albeit ALL smoking must be done outside of the homes with butts disposed of appropriately. Drugs in any form are not welcome.
The Vacation Rental market is rapidly changing, and all the major listing sites are trying to capitalize on these changes by nickeling and dimeing travelers and property owners. All major listing sites are now charging booking or service fees between 6% to 17% to the travelers/guests. Save $$ and Book Direct with me!

Why Kids Love It

The beach and fishing.

Area Information

St. George Island is a 22- mile barrier island that hosts some of Florida’s most beautiful and serene beaches. No high rises anywhere, just an unspoiled island with a laid-back attitude. Twenty miles of beach on the gulfside and miles of marsh, inlets and oyster bars on the bayside. The uncrowded beaches are perfect for sunning and shelling, the clear gulf waters invite swimming and fishing, and the pristine bay marshes feature extraordinary wildlife and sunset viewing. Rent a kayak, boat, bicycle or scooter.

The old bridge is now a fishing pier.

Guestbook comments from the host:

We were coming to Apalachicola for a BBQ contest and decided to stay on SGI. I found The Wahoo on the internet and decided to give it a try for 3 days starting Jan 23rd. We enjoyed our stay so much that we went ahead and booked a week beginning on March 31st. The place is very peaceful and a short walk to either the bay or the beach. The bay side is great to view the beautiful Florida sunsets. We can’t wait to return to The Wahoo in March/April.


Feb 2018

The house has a great location to walk to the beach and restaurants. Also a small grocery store not very far. The home is spacious enough and comfortably decorated. The deck makes you feel that you are up in the trees, listening to the birds! The area is beautiful and we would recommend a stay here.


Dec 2017

Very comfortable spacious. Quiet but short distsnce to everything.


Dec 2017

Thank you again for sharing your lovely home with my parents and us. There was plenty of room to eat at the bar, while one guest had their computer things set up on the generous sized kitchen table. The kitchen was equipped with everything we needed to have nice quiet dinners in. There is almost ZERO light pollution on the Island, which made for some fantastic star gazing. Mosquitoes were fairly thick, but one of the locals said they are simple at a RECORD high this year; we had repellent and weren't bothered too much. We enjoyed our time at the Wahoo, and certainly on Saint George Island. Thank you again.


Nov 2017

My third trip to the island - have stayed here every time. FYI, love the new floors. I bring my husband and kids here as often as i can, love that it's dog friendly. 1/2 block from the bay with the most amazing views of the sunset over Apalachacola. We walked to the beach every morning for sunrise and coffee. I think price wise it's the best deal on the island. We also enjoyed riding our bikes to Harry A's to eat dinner. Looking forward to coming back next year! Thanks Tim. Sincerly, Paul and Margery Smith


Oct 2017

Had a great trip to SGI and wonderful, comfortable stay at The Wahoo. The owner is very easy to work with, as we had to postpone our trip by a few days due to a hurricane hitting...Tim's response, "No problem!" Very comfortable for the furry family too. Nice back deck for morning coffee with the sound of the birds in the trees. The only thing that could have made this better was iced down beer and oysters waiting for us when we get there. Maybe Tim can do something about that on our next visit!!!

Also, very favorably situated with wonderful walks in every direction. Close to the bay and the beach. The house has a great large deck from which to watch birds, crashing storms, read or just relax and snooze. We had a lovely week.


Sep 2017

This is our first time to SGI, incredible island and fabulous home. We brought our bikes and I'm glad we did. We were able to do everything on the island travelling on them. Private and quite home as described. We will be back as long as Tim will have us. Couldn't ask for a better owner. Can't wait to return, this has been one of the best vacations we have had. Wahoo says it all.

We had a wonderful time on St. George Island. The house was nice and in a quiet area, which we liked. Short walk to the beach. My daughter who is 8 wants to live there. Thank you for such great accommodations !


Jul 2017

Tim is the consummate proprietor: responding quickly to inquiries, answering a bazillion questions, resolving an HVAC problem for us as expediently as possible while staying in touch by phone as well. (I must mention, too, just how professional and courteous the workers were.) The house is well appointed, comfortably decorated, and clean. We've stayed at many, many places over the 30 years we've been coming to SGI, but we're grateful to have found such a fabulous place and a great owner to work with. We hope we will be staying here whenever possible in the future!


Jun 2017

his was our first vacation at Saint George Island and we loved it. My family and I were so please with this beach house. It was clean, excellent location and close to the beach. Tim was excellent to deal with and get a response from. The house was just as described and we had no issues whatsoever. Would highly recommend and I would book again. Thanks Jen & family

wonderful little house for our quick stay for a friends wedding. Nice and quiet, there was plenty of space to relax. We used the fully stocked kitchen to make a low country boil. We had a wonderful time!

Truly enjoyed this rental!

This house is in a great location. It is close enough to walk to the beach and is also just a short drive away from all the restaurants. The house itself is cozy and we really enjoyed the deck out back. It was peaceful to just sit outside and listen to all the birds. The fact that it's pet friendly makes it an even better find. It was my dogs first trip to the beach so that was fun. Don't hesitate to book with them, you will enjoy it. Hope to be back soon.Susan

Amazing house! Clean and cozy

Tim’s home is super clean and super cozy. The layout of the home lends itself to family time. The whole back of the house are glass windows opening into a large deck. The kitchen and living area merge into this deck area so. I sky and one of the three bedrooms opens straight onto the deck. When in the deck you are surrounded by green trees and there is a feeling of actually being in the trees with the numerous birds. We watched a red shouldered hawk right off the balcony argue wirh two northern flickers. Cotton bedding. The kitchen is well appointed. A new washer and dryer complete the package. Tim is very easy to deal with. So not hesitate to rent this property.

What a nice place to spend a weekend! A quite family friendly place. House is will supplied with everything you need. Beach is just a few blocks and bay is at end on road . We took our golf cart and that was great. Golf cart rentals is on island. The owners are very easy to work with. We had to reschedule due to COVID-19. With no problems at all.

Perfect get away home on the island

Very clean, quiet, and owner is very courteous. I luckily stumbled across the Wahoo when looking for a place to stay with a group of guys for a long fishing weekend. I will be looking to book the Wahoo again when my wife and I go to St George for a long weekend. It may not be right on the beach, but it is so affordably priced it is well worth it
