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 3bedroom plus loft home is on the water and has themed coastal decorations throughout, perfectly situated near the neighborhood boat launch and at the edge of St. Marks Wildlife Refuge. Superb views of bay, gulf of Mexico 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 55 inch HDTV flat screen smart television, dvd and gaming systems (Wii and XBox 360).

Main living area includes gas-powered fireplace, dining area, and large 55 inch flat screen smart 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 are two sets of golfclubs: Callaway Big Bertha graphite irons and Ping Black Dot Steel irons as well as a basketball goal and Head tennis rackets for your use.

Perfect Getaway Home

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect!! We stayed here for a few days during July 4th and I can say that we will definitely stay here again! The fireworks were unbelievable! The views, sunsets, and stocked kitchen were a definite plus...not to mention the elevator! We literally never used the stairs...I mean hey we were on vacation! We caught crabs in our crab nets and even used the kayaks to do some sightseeing! The kitchen has everything you need so a few basic groceries will do you. The bedrooms and bathrooms are fully furnished and we had no complaints. This house is also pet friendly which made it an even better vacation to have our little fur baby with us! It was just me and my husband and it was very spacious! We also loved using the outdoor grill on the 4th for our steaks! Loved being on the water and on Live Oak Island. It's nice being tucked away in this beautiful area and more gorgeous home!

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week in this beautiful house away from it all. This place has everything. Entertainment for the kids both inside and out. From the basketball hoop to the kayaks, to the bikes, to the fishing, to the Wii, to the board games, to the many movies on DVD. Truly a great place for the family to get away. The owner is responsive and helpful. We enjoyed some of the most spectacular sunsets on the deck while watching dolphins playing in the lagoon. Highly recommended, and we hope to return again in the future.

Great place for a family, wonderful owners to work with

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully kept home; perfect for a family vacation. They thought of everything! We had an 8 month old grand child with us; they had a highchair and baby life jacket! The elevator was a nice feature since I have a hip injury that makes it difficult to climb steps. We enjoyed the kayaks and canoe ride, along with fishing in the back yard. Sunday it rained all day so we had an opportunity to sit around as a family, make dinner and play board games.

The owners were so good about emailing us to make sure everything was okay and that we were enjoying our stay.

We will definitely return!

Great home!

  • 5 of 5

The home itself is a 5.. nice layout for 3 bedrooms - 2 share a bath (attached to 1 room, off the hallway for the room across the way) and the Master w attached bath and balcony out to the water which is a shared balcony off the front door.. many decks and levels. Very comfortable, good kitchen, etc.. The bathrooms were a bit dated but fine. There was a loft up the spiral staircase w 2 twin beds and a TV. There were a lot of stairs to the front door (we couldn't figure out the elevator) which was fine. The view was spectacular. We saw a dolphin feeding w 2 pelican friends. It was very peaceful. It's a bit far out from anything (grocery, restaurants). We did the river tour at the Edward Ball Wakulla Springs State Park and ate at the restaurant - super fabulous! We also went to the Gulf Specimen Aquarium in Panacea which was fun too - lots of touch tanks (I'm an adult but still loved it!) and cool fish to see up close. They rescue many injured animals. It was about 30-35 mins into Tallahassee with lots to do (love Clusters & Hops and Edison restaurants). It was a great place to stay if you don't mind driving a bit to get somewhere.

Relaxing stay with an amazing view!

  • 5 of 5

The Salty Pelican was the perfect place to get away! The house was spotless and the kitchen was well-equipped. I brought some kitchen items, not sure what to expect, but did not need them. We made use of the kayak and fishing poles and took day trips to Wakulla Springs (boat tour is a must), Tallahassee, and Apalachicola. Phil and Rebekah were very friendly and stayed in touch before and during our trip. We didn't have any issues but felt confident we could reach them if needed. We'd love to stay again in the future.
