The best of Savannah is just steps from your door when you stay at the Live Oaks House. Offering the finest in Savannah vacation-rental accommodations, the Live Oaks House on historic Warren Square is exceptional. Set in the heart of Savannah’s fabulous Landmark District, the house is one the city's oldest (built 1806-1809), constructed when Thomas Jefferson was President. Experience the Live Oaks House 1800’s architecture and original historic details, while indulging in all the contemporary comforts: updated modern baths, large-screen TVs with cable, a gourmet kitchen and free Wi-Fi.
Located on park-like Warren Square, Live Oaks House is only steps from Broughton, Bay and River Streets, in the very heart of downtown. You are only a three-minute walk from the beautifully restored 20s-era Lucas Theater. Walk around the corner, and you’re at B. Matthews, one of Savannah's most popular brunch spots (make reservations in advance!). Leopold’s ice cream parlor -- regarded by the Toronto Sun as one of the world's top 10 – is so close you can stroll back to Live Oaks House before you finish your cone!
You'll feel right at home at Live Oaks House. Our comfortable 4-bedroom, 2 ½-bath home offers both sanctuary and scintillation for eight guests. Two master suites and a private entrance to the garden level offers convenience not found in many rentals. Beautiful brass and iron beds, with dreamily comfortable mattresses and linens, are a welcome refuge at the end of the day.
Live Oaks House is tastefully furnished, while remaining a comfortable retreat. The interior features antiques, original pine floors accented with beautiful area rugs, and gorgeous natural light, enhancing the artwork throughout. With the main (parlor level) floor featuring an open floor plan and soaring ceilings, each space feels unrestricted, yet cozy.
Open the front door to reveal the beautiful turned staircase. Step into the living room and choose a favorite chair as you recap the day's activities or plan for tomorrow. Watch a movie on the 55” UHD Smart TV with DVD/Blu-ray player. The parlor level is perfect for entertaining the family and/or a group of friends. The living room opens to a spacious dining room; a bar separates the dining room from the gourmet kitchen. Enjoy preparing a meal from the full-size refrigerator with automatic icemaker; induction cooktop and electric stove; dishwasher, microwave, and KitchenAid Artisan stand mixer; blender; toaster; coffeemaker with hot water dispenser; along with full cookware, bakeware, kitchen tools, plates, flatware and beautiful glassware. At the end of the bar, you'll find two under-counter refrigerators to be stocked as you like.
Taking the stairs to the second floor, the spacious master bedroom welcomes you with luxury. With its 12-foot ceiling, decadently comfortable king-size brass-and-iron bed, top-notch linens and striking duvet, the master bedroom ensures your complete delight and relaxation. For those wishing to read or indulge in a late-night movie, there's a sitting area and a 55” UHD Smart TV with DVD/Blu-ray player. The room is beautifully appointed with a decorative fireplace. The adjacent bath features a lovely vanity sitting area, lighted makeup mirror, and a combination bath and shower with Delta In2ition stationary and hand-held showers.
The lower level, or garden level, master bedroom has a private entrance, as well as a staircase to the parlor level. The king-size iron bed is made up with a supremely comfortable down-alternative comforter, 55” UHD Smart TV with DVD/Blu-ray player and on-suite bath. At the end of the day, you will appreciate the jetted tub with overhead shower, fitted with Delta In2ition stationary and hand-held shower heads.
Also on the garden level, an adorable junior bedroom is furnished with two white-enameled iron twin beds, fitted with cozy hypoallergenic down-alternative comforters/duvets, plush pillows and dreamy mattresses for splendid getaway comfort.
To top it all off, the 3rd floor bedroom rewards you with a treetop view of Warren Square and the side yard. The room’s vaulted ceiling surrounds a lovely Parisian-style queen-size iron sleigh bed, with its cozy mattress, lightweight down-alternative comforter and sateen sheets. Many visitors have called it their favorite room in the house. (Note: the stairs to the 3rd floor are narrow and twist tightly, as you'll find in so many houses of this era. Even though they are carpeted, please use them only if you're sure-footed, use the handrails, and watch your step going up and down.)
Pack with confidence! The Live Oaks House has a large laundry room with an extra-capacity Whirlpool washer and dryer, featuring steam technology. There's an ironing board and iron (which you might not need to use!). Pack light and wash as needed. Beach towels are available should you wish to take the short drive to Tybee Island beach.
Of course, you can enjoy the outdoors without leaving Live Oaks House. Step from the kitchen to the back deck, where Adirondack chairs invite you to relax over morning coffee or cocktails at 5. Down the stairs, your private brick courtyard is lush with foliage. Three cafe tables with chairs create a charming and intimate environment for dining or socializing with friends.
Savannah is a walking town. Technically, you could skip the rental car completely if you will not be driving outside downtown. A Chatham Area Transit (CAT) 100 Airport Express bus can inexpensively shuttle you from the Airport to the downtown transportation hub, where you can transfer to an 11 bus that stops just a few short blocks away from Live Oaks House. The CAT bus can take you to many locations throughout the city, including Forsyth Park, one of Savannah's premier weekend gathering places.
If you do rent a car, or drive your own to Savannah, paid street parking is available around Warren Square and down the block. There is also a covered garage a minute's walk from our front door. You can park your car and walk (or ride the free DOT bus) all over historic downtown and the Landmark and Victorian Districts, but still have your car at the ready for the short drive to the beaches of Tybee Island or a visit to historic Bonaventure cemetery, a renowned setting from John Berendt's non-fiction novel Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil.
We hope you'll join us for a three-night minimum stay, or a full week to maximize your Savannah experience. With its incredible architecture, renowned restaurant scene, ideal people-watching opportunities and entertaining events throughout the year, Savannah and the Live Oaks House will charm you with lasting memories that will have you planning the itinerary for your next visit, even as you make your way home.

Location and luxury. Live Oaks House is an amazing property, designed for entertaining and comfort and filled with all manner of luxury in an incomparably convenient downtown location. You'll be hard-pressed to find a better place to stay in Savannah, with the best of Broughton, Bay and River Streets just steps from your door. And while you won't want to spend your entire vacation in bed, our luxurious beds, linens and mattresses might tempt you to sleep an extra hour or two.
• An unquestionably superior location just steps from some of Savannah's finest restaurants, including The Olde Pink House, B. Matthews and Pacci at The Brice, to name a few
• A gorgeous park-front setting on lush Warren Square, one of Savannah's oldest
• One of the Historic District's oldest and most well-preserved homes
• A heart-of-downtown location, yet on a remarkably quiet block
This is a very nice property with plenty of space in a great location. There's lots of food, shops, and nightlife within walking distance including River St. The layout of the house is a bit quirky as is sometimes the case with renovated historic homes, but it's nicely appointed. The most important thing to note is that the rooms on the bottom floor share a bathroom that is located in the main bedroom, so whoever is staying in the adjacent room with the twin beds have to go into the main bedroom to use the restroom. Not a big deal for parents and kids, but less ideal for the situation we had with the bottom floor being shared by employees attending a conference.
The only real complaint for me were the pillows on the bed in the Master bedroom. They were super firm and puffy (very uncomfortable for me), and combined with the wrought iron style headboard that allows the pillow to slip into the gap between the bed and the wall, getting a good night's sleep was difficult. I ended up jamming the big pillow in the gap and using a throw pillow!
We've stayed at a few other places and I think this one had the best location for walkability. We traveled with my senior parents and they were able to walk the few blocks to the river area and a few blocks to the market area. We caught a carriage ride, the teens rented the city bikes, shopped and ate all close by. The house was pleasant and impeccable. We cooked most nights and had everything we needed from the kitchen. The steps to the very top floor wasn't suited for older adults but was fine for everyone else. Parking was fine since it was the Xmas holiday then bought a parking permit (the office was a few blocks away) for the last few days and had no problems finding a spot. Plus the garage was right across the street if needed. And be sure to check out Abe's bar on the corner. Great little spot!
Loved this house! We were 8 girls on a birthday trip ( late November), plenty of beds, towels, bathroom and kitchen supplies! Outdoor space was a good size and very private. Great location and accommodations. We were able to walk to everything. Would definitely recommend to other larger parties. Would definitely stay here again!
DO be careful with parking and street cleaning. Meters run from 8AM - 5PM M-F. Parking is free on the weekends. But, they clean some streets on the weekends. We got in on a Saturday and didn't realize street cleaning was Sunday AM - both cars got $25 tickets. Monday we bought two one day parking passes for $8 each. No other problems - we left on Tuesday AM.
Great location, clean and plenty of room for 6 adults! We parked our car the day of arrival and walked everywhere the entire 3 days!
We loved this house we stayed at for our girls'trip to Savannah. It was rocknroll marathon weekend and we were literally 1 block from the start of the race. The location allowed us to park our cars and walk everywhere: shopping, restaurants, historical sights, everything.
The house is beautifully decorated and comfortable with lots of room for our group. The kitchen has everything you need to cook any meal you care to prepare. There are stairs to get in the house.and stairs to all the bedrooms. The 3 rd floor bedroom has some tricky stairs but the hand rails are well placed. We loved the house and Savannah. We would definitely come back to this house.
Perfect location and great amenities. The lower level with two bedrooms was perfect for my son and his young family. Great living space for socializing with friends and family!
The property could use an outdoor grill, but did not stop us from having a wonderful time! We will definitely use this property in the future!
Savannah is rich in History. It was spared during the Civil War by Sherman and was a "gift" to President Lincoln because of its unique beauty. The city is vibrant, yet historic with many options of places to see and activities to do. The Visitors' Center hosts many tour options and suggestions, as well as maps and lots of great information on activities suitable for a single person, couple or the whole family to do. Please access our Hospitality information, where we have compiled our favorite restaurants and "must sees".
