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 Savannah

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".

Great location with lots of space. Beds were comfy and we had everything we needed for a long weekend of fun. Tons of uber drivers around to make nights out super easy and cheap.

Spacious, Excellent Location!

  • 5 of 5

The home is in a great, quiet location and within a 20 minute walking distance of all the places within historic Savannah. The home is very spacious and has a shared backyard, which was excellent to enjoy the great weather during down times. It was also convenient since we traveled with our dogs.

Christen and Gerome were helpful, when needed, or when we asked for some recommendations.

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

Our party consisted of three moms and their daughters. We enjoyed the convenience of staying in the historic district. Nothing was far from the house. If you need more space than this townhouse offers, contact the owner. They have additional properties available!
