Enjoyable Vacation

  • 4 of 5

We had a nice time. The area is very remote, more so than I anticipated. Driving from the north we had to take hours of back roads to get to the house. Once we made it, it was a beautiful setting. We got to see dolphins and there are some great state and national parks near by. I wish the weather would have been warmer, not a lot to do on cool days. We went to St. George Island twice which is about an hour and 20 minute drive, The island is a little more touristy (I say that in a good way, better restaurants and things to do.)

The house was one of the more odd houses in terms of layout I have rented on VRBO, it was an older house, but also had some nice updates. One thing I didn't realize was that all the upstairs bedrooms are open ceilings so after our small children went to bed it had to be quiet time throughout the house. Not a terrible thing, but didn't catch this before we arrived.

The star gazing was amazing, we packed our telescope and I am glad we did!

Owner's Response: Yes, we are in a remote area, quiet, old time Florida. The additional bedrooms were added while trying to keep the integrity of the beautiful cypress wood walls and ceilings. We hope you return when you can swim and enjoy the waterfront more. It's been an usually cold winter here. Thank you for your review!

Unique house on a unique island

  • 4 of 5

The house and pool are great. It is an older property in an area where the weather can take a toll on any building. In other words if you 're looking for new,sleek and shiny accomadations you're in the wrong place.We had been to Live Oak Island many times so we knew what is and isn't there. LOI is not for the beach seeker; it's for the person looking for an active vacation. There is a multitude of fishing, paddling, cycling, crabbing, scalloping, etc. all around you. Tallahassee is always 30 minutes away if you have urban withdrawal.

From Ohio

This property was very roomy. Very quiet. This house would be ideal for someone with a boat. We watched dolphins almost daily, this was the best part to see them so close. This is a perfect place if don't want a bunch of tourism. We missed it a little and drove a couple of hours to Panama City Beach to mini golf, shop, and take a airboat ride. Overall, a very relaxing place.

Ms. Mary's on Live Oak Island

  • 5 of 5

My husband, children and I just returned from our stay on Live Oak Island. This was the most relaxing vacation we have ever had!! We loved Ms. Mary's House! If you're looking for pristine white, manicured beaches with 100's of people and coastline traffic...this location is not for you. If you are looking for peace and quiet, relaxation, and a private pool...Ms. Mary's is just what you need. You can have as much or as little "touristy" type experience as you want. Shell Pointe Beach is within driving distance and our kids had a great time. My husband even went deep-sea fishing. We hunted for hermit crabs, which is NOT hard to do, as they are plentiful. Our first morning there, we were visited by a hammerhead shark. Every morning, a dolphin made his morning rounds to catch his breakfast. Thanks to Kris for giving us a heads up as the dolphin headed our way. We enjoyed watching the various types of birds hunt for food as well. We utilized the paddle boat to tour the bay. Rather than eating out, we preferred shopping at local seafood markets and cooking our own. By far the best shrimp, scallops and oysters I've ever eaten. The house was well laid out and fully equipped. The pictures and descriptions on the VRBO website are very accurate. Most of all, we enjoyed spending time together as a family.
