About the property

Historic 4 Bedroom, 2.5 Bath In Ideal Downtown Location, Watch Our New Video!

The best of Savannah is just steps from your door when you stay at the Live Oaks House. Offering the finest in Savannah vacation-rental accommodations, the Live Oaks House on historic Warren Square is exceptional. We encourage you to watch our new Live Oaks House Video to get a sense of place.

Set in the heart of Savannah’s fabulous Landmark District, the house is one the city's oldest (built 1806-1809), constructed when Thomas Jefferson was President. Experience the Live Oaks House 1800’s architecture and original historic details, while indulging in all the contemporary comforts: updated modern baths, large-screen TVs with cable, a gourmet kitchen and free Wi-Fi.

Located on park-like Warren Square, Live Oaks House is only steps from Broughton, Bay and River Streets, in the very heart of downtown. You are only a three-minute walk from the beautifully restored 20s-era Lucas Theater. Walk around the corner, and you’re at B. Matthews, one of Savannah's most popular brunch spots (make reservations in advance!). Leopold’s ice cream parlor -- regarded by the Toronto Sun as one of the world's top 10 – is so close you can stroll back to Live Oaks House before you finish your cone!

You'll feel right at home at Live Oaks House. Our comfortable 4-bedroom, 2 ½-bath home offers both sanctuary and scintillation for eight guests. Two master suites and a private entrance to the garden level offers convenience not found in many rentals. Beautiful brass and iron beds, with dreamily comfortable mattresses and linens, are a welcome refuge at the end of the day.

Live Oaks House is tastefully furnished, while remaining a comfortable retreat. The interior features antiques, original pine floors accented with beautiful area rugs, and gorgeous natural light, enhancing the artwork throughout. With the main (parlor level) floor featuring an open floor plan and soaring ceilings, each space feels unrestricted, yet cozy.

Open the front door to reveal the beautiful turned staircase. Step into the living room and choose a favorite chair as you recap the day's activities or plan for tomorrow. Watch a movie on the 55” UHD Smart TV with DVD/Blu-ray player. The parlor level is perfect for entertaining the family and/or a group of friends. The living room opens to a spacious dining room; a bar separates the dining room from the gourmet kitchen. Enjoy preparing a meal from the full-size refrigerator with automatic icemaker; induction cooktop and electric stove; dishwasher, microwave, and KitchenAid Artisan stand mixer; blender; toaster; coffeemaker with hot water dispenser; along with full cookware, bakeware, kitchen tools, plates, flatware and beautiful glassware. At the end of the bar, you'll find two under-counter refrigerators to be stocked as you like.

Taking the stairs to the second floor, the spacious master bedroom welcomes you with luxury. With its 12-foot ceiling, decadently comfortable king-size brass-and-iron bed, top-notch linens and striking duvet, the master bedroom ensures your complete delight and relaxation. For those wishing to read or indulge in a late-night movie, there's a sitting area and a 55” UHD Smart TV with DVD/Blu-ray player. The room is beautifully appointed with a decorative fireplace. The adjacent bath features a lovely vanity sitting area, lighted makeup mirror, and a combination bath and shower with Delta In2ition stationary and hand-held showers.

The lower level, or garden level, master suite has a private entrance, as well as a staircase to the parlor level. The king-size iron bed is made up with a supremely comfortable down-alternative comforter, 55” UHD Smart TV with DVD/Blu-ray player and on-suite bath. At the end of the day, you will appreciate the jetted tub with overhead shower, fitted with Delta In2ition stationary and hand-held shower heads.

Off the main bedroom, an adorable junior bedroom is furnished with two white-enameled iron twin beds, fitted with cozy hypoallergenic down-alternative comforters/duvets, plush pillows and dreamy mattresses for splendid getaway comfort. This bedroom and the master share a full bathroom.

To top it all off, the 3rd floor bedroom rewards you with a treetop view of Warren Square and the side yard. The room’s vaulted ceiling surrounds a lovely Parisian-style queen-size iron sleigh bed, with its cozy mattress, lightweight down-alternative comforter and sateen sheets. Many visitors have called it their favorite room in the house. (Note: the stairs to the 3rd floor are narrow and twist tightly, as you'll find in so many houses of this era. Even though they are carpeted, please use them only if you're sure-footed, use the handrails, and watch your step going up and down.)

Pack with confidence! The Live Oaks House has a large laundry room with an extra-capacity Whirlpool washer and dryer, featuring steam technology. There's an ironing board and iron (which you might not need to use!). Pack light and wash as needed. Beach towels are available should you wish to take the short drive to Tybee Island beach.

Of course, you can enjoy the outdoors without leaving Live Oaks House. Step from the kitchen to the back deck, where Adirondack chairs invite you to relax over morning coffee or cocktails at 5. Down the stairs, your private brick courtyard is lush with foliage. Three cafe tables with chairs create a charming and intimate environment for dining or socializing with friends.

Savannah is a walking town. Technically, you could skip the rental car completely if you will not be driving outside downtown. A Chatham Area Transit (CAT) 100 Airport Express bus can inexpensively shuttle you from the Airport to the downtown transportation hub, where you can transfer to an 11 bus that stops just a few short blocks away from Live Oaks House. The CAT bus can take you to many locations throughout the city, including Forsyth Park, one of Savannah's premier weekend gathering places.

If you do rent a car, or drive your own to Savannah, paid street parking is available around Warren Square and down the block. The City of Savannah offers Visitor's parking passes, $15 per day or $39 for a 3 day pass, purchased from The Savannah Visitor's Center at Martin Luther King & Liberty Street or the City of Savannah Parking Office, just two blocks from the house. You can park your car and walk (or ride the free DOT bus) all over historic downtown and the Landmark and Victorian Districts, but still have your car at the ready for the short drive to the beaches of Tybee Island or a visit to historic Bonaventure cemetery, a renowned setting from John Berendt's non-fiction novel Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil.

We hope you'll join us for a three-night minimum stay, or a full week to maximize your Savannah experience. With its incredible architecture, renowned restaurant scene, ideal people-watching opportunities and entertaining events throughout the year, Savannah and the Live Oaks House will charm you with lasting memories that will have you planning the itinerary for your next visit, even as you make your way home.

Wonderful home in perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

Our group was in town for a wedding and decided to stay together in this lovely home. We were extremely pleased with the size and quality of the home. It's proximity to the best (okay touristy) parts of the city was ideal. It was just a few blocks from the most popular areas in a quiet neighborhood. It's also about 100 feet from a great brunch place (B. Matthew's) and a few blocks from the riverfront. The house was comfortable and warm. Thanks Kelly for letting us rent your home!

Perfect location and comfortable stay!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying here. We rented this property for our Council Member and Staff to attend a convention. The location was so convenient, just 2.5 blocks from River Street and the Ferry.

The kitchen was well equipped, beds were extremely comfortable and the dining bar and dining room were perfect for a small gathering or for work. I especially loved the art - beautiful cross-stitched full sized pieces and perfectly selected art for the bedrooms. The king size room on the 2nd floor had a beautiful painting that had a dog in it that I would love to have in my home!

We appreciate how accommodating you were when we were booking the property. We will make this our yearly lodging for the convention.

The beauty and character of it all was priceless

  • 5 of 5

We had grandparents, us and our 2 little ones as well as 2 other adults (aunt and uncle) in this house. It was the perfect size. It had the amenities we needed. It was close to everything. Great space for everyone to relax in. With 2 little ones it was great to have a full kitchen. It was also better for us to be able to go out for a meal and cook for another each day. There was plenty of towels for the beach when we went. The entryway was stunning to me. We came here for vacation with the whole family, eloped and had the most important people with us. Now were leaving with lots of pictures and find memories for years to come. I would gladly stay here again. I'm so thankful to kelly and the owners who gave us this opportunity to experience Savannah in it's TRUE authenticity. Thank you!

Great location

  • 4 of 5

Great location. Lovely historic spot. The stairs to the 3rd floor are very steep, as well as the stairs to the garden level. Several light bulbs were burned out and no replacements we're found. The porch was a lovely spot to relax with a cocktail. Batteries in channel changer was dead had to look everywhere for replacements. Finally found them. I would recommend this property.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the information Susan for The Live Oaks House. I apologize for the light bulbs not being replaced. I was unaware we needed them or I would have gotten them right away. We try to keep bulbs for each fixture/lamp, just in case. We always have batteries and extra supplies. I'm so glad you enjoyed the porch and outdoor space at the house. We have stated in the listing of the property that the steps to the 3rd floor are steep- we have a very sturdy railing all the way up, which is about 10 steps, I believe. This house was built in the 1800's, so the stairs and other items have been added to the interior were made to fit the house. This is a common thing. We're glad you would recommend The LIve Oaks House! thank you, Kelly

Savannah is rich in History. It was spared during the Civil War by Sherman and was a "gift" to President Lincoln because of its unique beauty. The city is vibrant, yet historic with many options of places to see and activities to do. The Visitors' Center hosts many tour options and suggestions, as well as maps and lots of great information on activities suitable for a single person, couple or the whole family to do. Please access our Hospitality information, where we have compiled our favorite restaurants and "must sees".
