About the property

Historic 4 Bedroom, 2.5 Bath In Ideal Downtown Location

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.

Spacious and well kept house in a great location

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I have been making yearly trips to Savannah so we have stayed at several rentals. I do have to say the Live Oaks House was the best house yet. For being one of the older homes in Savannah it was very well kept, clean, and updated. The kitchen and bathroom looked to be remodeled recently. For those with larger groups the house was very spacious and more than enough room for our group of 8 people. There was also a large courtyard off the back of the house where you could enjoy the outdoors. I had read previous reviews that the upstairs was warm but that issue must have been resolved. It was mid to high 80's during our stay but all rooms were more than comfortable and we actually had to turn down the AC a couple times. The house is also in a great location. River St. and Broughton St. are only a few blocks away. I would highly recommend this house. We'll be looking to stay there again during our trip next year.

A delightful place to enjoy Savannah!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 6 friends met here for a few days to enjoy Savannah and a few days together. The property provided a beautiful space to plan our activities and relax over beverages and snacks. Nearby restaurants and attractions were within walking distance. Cozy beds and spacious rooms provided rest after busy days and wonderful evenings in this historic and hospitable city. We had a wonderful time at Live Oak house and highly recommend this property for your group or family.

Great girls getaway house!

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of seven women celebrating 40 years of friendship with a girls getaway trip to Savannah. Live Oaks House was perfect for our group! The house was beautifully decorated, immaculate, very spacious and had plenty of seating for all of us to gather; both inside and outside. The kitchen was upgraded and would be easy to create meals in with plenty of utensils, dishes/glasses and cookware. We ate out for our meals but made coffee/tea and created snacks everyday. I can't say enough about the luxurious beds and linens; we fell asleep as soon as our heads hit the pillows! The two full bathrooms were very nice and no problem for seven females who are old nursing school friends to share; but might be a privacy problem for more then two couples. Live Oaks would also be perfect for a family rental. This house is right in the heart of everything; we were able to walk everywhere and had no need for a car/taxi/Uber. Even the trolley passed by the house. When we had difficulty connecting the Wi-Fi; we received a quick response from the property manager with a suggestion as to how to remedy the situation; which was successful. I would and will recommend this house to anyone planning to visit Savannah.

Ladies weekend

  • 5 of 5

We all thoroughly enjoyed our weekend in Savannah and this house was perfect. We were able to walk everywhere. The house was beautiful and filled all our needs. If I had to reach for anything negative to say, it would only be a warning about the steep stairs to the top floor room. This house fit our situation perfectly and we can't wait to return again !

Awesome weekend in Savannah!

  • 5 of 5

We spent an amazing long weekend in Savannah for my sister's bachelorette. The house is centrally located and within walking distance of just about anywhere you want to go in the historic district. The house is great - we had beds for all 7 of us, and the living and dining rooms are spacious enough for everyone to hang out. Definitely would recommend and would stay here again! Two minor things to note - the house is centrally located so it can be a bit noisy at night, so just keep that in mind. Also the house gets amazing sunlight which can be bright in the am.

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".
