Overview

About the property

3 Bedroom + Loft, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8

One of the newest built homes on Live Oak Island. This modern and spacious 2007 1,930 sq ft home on the water has coastal decorations throughout, perfectly situated near the neighborhood boat launch and at the edge of St. Marks Wildlife Refuge. Superb views of bay, gulf and canals. Set on pilings with a large deck mezzanine and the main living area and deck on the third level. There is an elevator available by request for those needing assistance.

Our favorite parts of the day consists of viewing the various wildlife, listening to the mullet jump, watching the dolphins enter the bay to feed, enjoying the sunset from any of the deck levels or paddling the canoe/kayak out into the bay and canoe trails. You are minutes away from Shellpoint Beach, Golf, and the St. Marks Lighthouse.

The home has central heat and air, washer/dryer, gourmet kitchen completely stocked with everything you need but your food (including upscale appliances-gas stove and a convection oven). There are ceiling fans and televisions in all bedrooms (5 HD LED flat screens in total). Master suite opens out onto the upper deck. The master bath includes the laundry, a jacuzzi tub, bidet, and spacious walk-in closet.

The 4th level loft allows for more sleeping possibilities with 2 twin beds and living area with a large flat screen television, dvd and gaming systems (Wii and PS2).

Main living area includes gas-powered fireplace, dining area, and large 55 inch flat screen television with Blu-ray/dvd player and surround sound system. Dish Network Satellite (America's Top 200) is provided in both the den and loft common areas. The three bedrooms have TV Reception by HDTV over-air antenna with 13 local channels (ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox, CW, PBS, Bounce, Create, AccuWeather, Get TV, FL Channel, and ME TV). A library of books, magazines, cds, dvds, board games are provided for your use. But most of your time will probably be spent enjoying the views, the quiet sounds of nature, two propane grills, picnic tables, kayak/canoeing, fishing (5 poles provided), and exploring the area. There is a set of Callaway Big Bertha graphite irons and Ping Black Dot Steel irons and a basketball goal for your use. Four mountain bikes are also available for riding on these quiet palm and oak hammocked streets.

Peace and Tranquility and Amazing Sunsets

  • 4 of 5

We decided to stay off the beaten path away from the hustle and bustle of most big cities. We were rewarded with a beautiful home on the bay adjacent to the Gulf of Mexico. It was calm, quiet, and relaxing. Just what we needed in order to spend some quality time with the family. While we were there, we had some questions; the owner was more than willing to help out when we called. The sunsets were priceless form the 3rd story deck.

BEAUTIFUL ACCOMMODATIONS

  • 5 of 5

The Salty Pelican provided a wonderful experience for our stay. Our group traveled from Louisville to attend the UL/FSU football game. The house is nicely furnished and has anything and everything you could possibly need. There is a canoe, kayak, fishing gear, picnic table, basketball goal and much more. There are board games for the kids and adults. The kitchen is beautifully furnished with everything you need to prepare meals. There is an abundance of outside seating with lots of comfortable furniture, water sports equipment, plenty of grilling area both upper and lower decks, and even an elevator which comes in handy when loading and unloading your gear. The only negative is that the shower set up in the master bedroom is not ideal.

It is perfect for a weekend getaway, and the views are beautiful. The sunsets are amazing. Thanks to the owners for a great experience.

Perfect get away for the family!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had an amazing weekend! The kids and I loved catching crabs in the crab trap, and my husband took the canoe out to fish for Redfish every chance he could!! The home is beautifully furnished, and we spent every evening on the balcony watching the dolphins fish in the bay! I've never written a review before, but Philip and Rebekah's hospitality, their home, and the local area deserve high praise!!

Just perfect

  • 5 of 5

Our family absolutely loved staying there at The Salty Pelican. We did not want to leave. Couldn't have asked for anything more. It was a beautiful home, very clean and equipped with anything and everything you could possibly want. We loved the views and the sunsets were amazing. My teens loved the puzzles and games in the house. Also the elevator in the house was very useful. Phil and Rebekah were very helpful with giving us a list of restaurants and stores near by. Thanks for allowing us to stay in your lovely home. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone.

Wakulla Springs State Park is just minutes away and is a great place to swim in the summer and watch manatees in the winter. Shellpoint Beach is just a short paddle or car ride away and is a great place for swimming or finding small sealife.
