About Christen

My husband and I both moved to Savannah to attend the Savannah College of Art and Design - and as you can imagine, we fell in love with Savannah and never left! My husband is an artist and I founded and run an educational non-profit.

Christen purchased this townhome in 2007

Why Christen chose Victorian District

Savannah is a destination, and when you live in a destination, family and friends visit often! After years of accommodating our friends and family, it was at their recommendation that we looked into purchasing a vacation rental. We selected the Mimosa House because we loved the area - close to everything! a beautiful block, large yard and deck overlooking garden for our four-legged visitors or to enjoy the beautiful weather! A cozy place to call home on your next vacation.

What makes this townhome unique

Our most unique feature of the home is the art collection! Most of which we traded with the artists themselves and some of my husband's original pieces as well. Additionally, the large deck overlooking the garden is an excellent way to enjoy our Savannah weather year round! Staying in a historic building also captures Savannah's unique Southern charm!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Once upon a time, in this house in downtown Savannah, close friends and family met for a Thanksgiving celebration which was going to be unlike any they had ever experienced. We had the time of our lives. Thanks for the memories "Mimosa House".

Awesome location and a peaceful stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in Savannah as we attended a family wedding. This location was in a quiet neighborhood but only a block and a half away from Forsyth Park. We enjoyed some great walks. We were close to free public transportation and a convenient grocery store. The house was wonderful and our host were hospitable and friendly. I would stay here again on our next visit. It is also a dog friendly home even though we choose to fly and leave our four legged friend at home.

Had a great visit to Savannah!

  • 4 of 5

The house location was great for walking to the historic district. We had 2 couples & 3 dogs & all went well. We all work in a resort setting and noticed a few things that could use a little help. The most obvious was the shower curtain liner. Definitely need a replacement. But overall, we had a good visit!

Owner's Response: Thank you for this feedback! We have since changed housekeepers and new liners were added right after this was brought to our attention. We are glad you enjoyed your stay!
