Fantastic Home, Fantastic Owners!!
Fantastic Home, Fantastic Owners!!
My husband and I travel a lot, and we are always thrilled to find gems like the Sycamore House! Located on the most desirable street in Savannah (with Free parking!), this 2 bdrm townhouse is gorgeous! From the giant bathroom to the bbq in the backyard, privacy fence, spacious master bedroom with private deck, this place is perfect! We really enjoyed our stay here! When the internet went down, we called the owners and they responded within 20 minutes! When the bbq was out of gas... they came right over to swap it out for a new tank! The place is clean, has 2 living rooms, 3 tvs, very close to everything, cozy, spacious and again... very responsive and lovely owners!!

About the owner: Local Savannah family, enjoy the opportunity to share what's great about our city with our guests
Why the Owner Chose Savannah:
After turning turning our previous home into a vacation rental by necessity (there wasn't much selling a few years ago), we've grown to enjoy life as a vacation rental owner. This property was a great renovation project, and you can't beat the location...Jones Street has always been one of the most picturesque locations in the Historic District.
The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
This home has one of the largest Sycamore trees in the Historic District right in its own backyard, hence the name...Inside, the home has character...originally built in the late 1800's, it has the pedigree like many other historic properties, but it achieves a more approachable, informal feel (some of the historic properties can be a bit stuffy and overwhelming). You'll find some unique detail or aspect every day you're staying here.
