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.

Why Phil and Rebekah chose North West Florida

Our family quickly fell in love with this area and the natural setting and wildlife that living on the water offers. We know you will enjoy your time on Live Oak Island as much as we do.

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.

Great retreat for our family reunion.

  • 5 of 5

You do not want for anything at this house. Thoughtful consideration has gone into comfort, amenities and decor. Beautiful breezes, sunset and dolphin play from the deck and peaceful comfortable nights with sleeping arrangements. A great location for fishing, kayaking, St Marks Lighthouse, Wakulla Springs and even St. George Island. Owners went above and beyond to insure a great stay!

Nice

  • 5 of 5

Best location on the island. The home has everything you need, it is beautiful. The grandchildren enjoyed the upstairs it is every child's dream, many games, movies and toys.

We were able to relax during our three day weekend, kayaking, fishing, and watching the sun sets. We drove to Angelo's on Fathers day and enjoyed a wonderful meal on the outside dock. We tried Posey's by the bay on Friday night they have a prime rib dinner that was very good, not a fancy place but good food. We hope to enjoy "On The Water" again soon. Thanks for sharing your home.

Amazing Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This is a stunning home and we enjoyed our stay. My children did not want to leave. We are planning on returning in August.

We caught crabs and fish from the lake behind the house. I know you will enjoy your visit.

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.
