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.

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

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.

GREAT PLACE FOR NATURE LOVERS

  • 5 of 5
Our family usually has our beach vacation on one of the wide sandy beaches of the panhandle or West
Florida. This house was a different kind of gulf front , but well worth the trade off. The long pier into the gulf was great for fishing. We saw dolphin and shark fishing for their dinners. The pool was huge and a wonderful place to relax and cool off. The upstairs veranda overlooking the gulf was one our favorite spots to sit and read and watch the birds. The area is very peaceful, quiet and friendly. We all
agreed we would love to go back for another stay.

BEAUTIFUL, FUN-FILLED, RELAXING - THE BEST VACATION WE HAVE EVER HAD!!!

  • 5 of 5
The house was beautiful, spacious, fully stocked and in a fantastic location. My family is a fishing family and we spent most of our time on the gulf catching a variety of fish from baby sharks to Spanish Mackeral. We also had access to kayaks and a paddle boat which provided many hours of entertainment for the kids (and adults). We saw dolphins feeding daily, a manatee swimming along the shoreline and even a larger shark chasing the plentiful baitfish right before we left. The pool was the icing on the cake and was perfect for a quick cool-off in the afternoons when the tide was out. We are already trying to schedule for the same week next year so we will definately be back.
