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.

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.
This home was perfect for our family Thanksgiving gathering! The kitchen had everything we needed. The children liked the canoe and 2 kayaks, they had a blast! The view was amazing-from the sunrise in the morning to sunset at nite! The owners did an outstanding job on info and contacting me with questions that I had. The elevator was great, saving our backs due to many coolers of food. Thanks for a wonderful rental!
Thank you so much for sharing your place on the water. We brought our motorcycles so we could ride the coast to PCB ,us our sonhis wife and our niece and nephew. We couldn't have asked for a better place. The view is wonderful and the sunsets are awesome. If your looking for peace and quite this is the place for you. Enjoyed watching the dolphins play. The host has thought of everything from fishing gear to games. No reason to get bored. And the house is amazing.
If you are looking for a peaceful secluded place with a waterfront view this is the place.
We watched the dolphins play every morning and afternoon from the deck. We were able to access the gulf in minutes from our location and we got our limit of scallops every trip out.
WE WILL BE BACK.
This was our first trip in the area. This home was beautiful and accommodated my family of 8. It was very clean and maintained. The owner was very prompt in answering any questions. My grandchildren enjoyed the excitement of seeing the blue crabs and sting rays in the canal. The bicycles were a plus, as well as, the games provided in the home. We spent most of our time out on the gulf scalloping. We were unable to take advantage of the boat slip only 2 doors down, due to the low tides (that has to be planned for both coming and going). We did launch the boat from Wakulla River and St Marks. The Wakulla River is a beautiful ride!!!! Scallops were plentiful out from St. Marks...we limited out both days!
If I could make a suggestion, it would be to maybe add some blinds to the windows and maybe ask that the AC be turned down and cooling prior to arrival. It took 2 days for the house to cool. It was not comfortable with 96 degree weather. The sun coming in the windows in the evening made it difficult to cool...especially when the stove and/or oven were on. The sunsets are gorgeous to see for sure. This improvement would be a plus!!!!
Thank you for allowing us to stay in your home. Bless you!
The house ,the area , the view and the amenities were awesome This place has everything. Teenagers were a little lost without wifi for a bit, but got over it eventually and ( I think) it was good for them. Awesome time ! Dave & Joanna
My wife and I rented this beautiful, fully equipped coastal home over Memorial Day weekend and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The only thing more impressive than the outstanding hospitality of the owners was the view... which is EPIC. The welcoming feeling the owner's created by including all the wonderful amenities of their home (from bed linens to bicycles) gave us the sense that we were house guests versus renters, Their communication before, during and after our visit was equally outstanding. VRBO vacation property owners take note: THIS is how it's done.
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.
