About the property

A spacious 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath, with sunporch, outdoor patio, and large pool

Built in 1924, Live Oak House is a charming historic house nestled in a lush tropical garden situated at the end of a dead end street. This is a very quiet and private residence, surrounded by live oaks and tropical foliage; everywhere you look there is green! Live Oak House has all the elegant and funky charm of a historic home, Florida style; high ceilings, large windows, serious crown molding, and hardwood floors throughout! There are three bedrooms, the master being quite large with a king size bed, single day bed, and writing desk. The other two bedrooms have queen size beds. There is also a single daybed and an optional inflatable queen bed for extra guests. The sun porch can serve as a fourth bedroom. The large living room contains a 52' flat screen TV, and a card/puzzle table. The kitchen is fully equipped, with gas range and wine cooler. The dining room is also spacious and opens onto the outdoor patio which over looks the pool; the patio contains a dining table and chairs as well as a cozy seating area. An upstairs washer/dryer makes doing laundry easy. Amenities include wifi and beach equipment! Bicycles are also available. Live Oak House shares the garden and pool with Live Oak Cottage, a two story, one bedroom home. See photos and info at Home Away #3811725. The Live Oak House and Cottage are both new listings for us; please see our listing #934400 for 2 years of happy guest reviews!

A lovely experience!

  • 5 of 5

The Live Oak House is a beautiful, spacious, and extremely affordable vintage home filled with original art work and antique furnishings. There is a beautiful pool behind the house surrounded by a tropical garden. The kitchen is fully equipped. My daughter especially enjoyed playing at the municipal beaches near the home. Miss Holmes is a gracious, accommodating, and reliable hostess. We recommend the property highly and look forward to visiting again! Kathy and Family

Beautiful, comfortable Florida house!

  • 5 of 5

This house had everything we needed for having our family over for a mini reunion on Friday evening. The patio and pool area are beautiful and my family really enjoyed it. We also enjoyed the kitchen and the dining room later for a little dinner. Would highly recommend the house for a large family as it was spacious and had everything you would need for adults and children. Beds are comfy too! Kathleen was so sweet and made herself available for any questions. Great stay!! Want to come back!!

Beautiful historical home, comfortable for large family

  • 5 of 5

We travel with our extended family for the holidays and find this house very accommodating. It's our second stay here. There is plenty of room to all be together and to also have our own space within the house. Kathleen and Lou are very accessible and available if questions arise.

The Live Oak House was absolutely incredible! It was the perfect getaway for our family. Close to the beach, downtown, and anything we needed. Lou and Kathleen were so accommodating and welcoming and made our stay so special.
