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!

Wonderful stay! Beautiful large home.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time and loved the Oak House. Very spacious for our whole family in Florida to attend a wedding. Well stocked kitchen. The large trees helped keep the house cooler and the patio with the canopy and lights was my favorite in the evenings. Kathleen was a very kind and attentive host and we couldn't have asked for more. Would love to return someday.

A Wonderful Slice of Old Florida

  • 5 of 5

The 1920's old house filled with artwork was comfortable, welcoming, and very well provisioned. Given the weather, where we spent our time was outside in the private, tropical backyard. The patio called to us in the mornings and evenings, and the lounge chairs beside the pool in the afternoon. The pool is beautiful but unheated, and so a bit chilly in the cooler months.

Kathleen was extremely helpful and recommended restaurants, places of interest, and bike paths. She also responded to any and all of our questions quickly, What more could you ask for? We look forward to our return next year.

Terrific house in a beautiful tropical garden

  • 5 of 5

This enchanting house in a beautiful tropical garden was a perfect spot for our family gathering. Lots of original art added to the interest and charm of this historical house. The house was very clean and comfortable. The pool in the large, tropical back yard was very inviting. Really high quality bath and bedding linens added a special, luxurious touch. Lastly, Kathleen was a super nice attentive host making sure we had everything we needed from start to finish. I highly recommend this place!
