About Robbie Bell

My name is Robbie Bell. I work in real estate. I love to travel. After having the opportunity to travel to many different cities, I still believe that Savannah is one of the most beautiful cities in the world. The history, architecture, and local culture of Savannah are all unique. What better way to experience the architecture and history of Savannah than staying in a beautiful historic home? I really can't think of any.

This picture was taken while visiting Chengdu, China in early 2009. While in Chengdu, I was fortunate enough to visit the Giant Panda Research Center and interact with a panda cub, under the supervision of a research scientist.

Robbie Bell purchased this house in 2000

Why Robbie Bell chose Savannah

I believe that Savannah is one of the most beautiful cities in the world. I had always dreamed of owning a historic home in this incredible city. In 2000, I purchased this home, which at the time was operating as an owner occupied Bed and Breakfast. For 2 years, I operated the property as a Bed and Breakfast. In 2002, my family and I were able to travel to Italy. While in Italy, the entire family stayed in a villa. After that experience, I decided that families and groups traveling to Savannah should be able to experience my city that way too. In 2003, I ceased operating this home as a Bed and Breakfast and began offering this property as a vacation rental home exclusively. Savannah is such a great city...why not experience the history for yourself.

What makes this house unique

Our home is conveniently located in the heart of Savannah’s landmark historic district on Broughton Street between Price and Houston Street. Guests can easily walk to our beautiful green squares & other historic sites. There are many shops and fine restaurants within a five minute walk. We have off-street parking for two vehicles as well as street parking.

California Girls loved this beautiful Southern Home!!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful time we had in Savannah! Catering to my daughters bridal party could not have been easier having this lovely home for all the bridesmaids to be together for the wedding weekend. The beauty of the home truly denotes the southern charm of Savannah. Stocked with all the essential, the only thing we had to pick up where the groceries we needed for our stay. Four of the girls with us were from California and they were so excited to be staying in a true southern home. The decor really added to that special feel of stepping back in time. We also rented the carriage house out back for my husband and me to escape to when we needed some down time. What a wonderful space we had. You could stay for weeks in this little apartment and never want to leave. Perfectly decorated as well with a small kitchen and dining table, full size couch and seating area, with a bedroom that could be closed off from the living area for privacy. So convenient to the historical district that everyone was able to enjoy walking to eateries, shopping, and sight seeing. Thanks for making my daughters Wedding Weekend so much more than we imagined. And thanks for giving us the opportunity to share your true "Southern Charm" with our west coast family.

Perfect Location, comfortable beds! Just a beautiful property. We also rented the guest house

  • 5 of 5

Our group spent 4 nights. We also rented the guest house. We had 3 couples in the main house and 4 people in the guest house. We were there for a friend's daughter's wedding. It could not have worked out better. It is an art gallery(just beautiful), the beds are great. The back patio that is between the main house and guest house is delightful to sit outside and have a few drinks. Great for walking to everything. Helen was very accommodating since we had a few people arriving before standard check in time. Thank you for a wonderful memory. We were there March 9th to the 13th.

Excellent St. Patricks Holiday!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, friends, and myself enjoyed an awesome holiday week in this amazing home! The owners were extremely accommodating and the place was very comfortable and beautifully styled with Old Southern charm. Very spacious and centrally located to the downtown, City Market, and River Walk. Also, the St. Patrick's Day Parade occurred right in front of the home. Constructive criticism would be to have better cable programming and a larger downstairs TV, but this in no way should be a deterrent for anyone considering staying here. Would absolutely stay here again!

Great property - Excellent Location

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in Savannah. The house is really nice, but the best part is the location. You can walk to just about everywhere. Tons of great food options nearby. The owners were very responsive to the emails and answering all the questions we had. Overall I would rate this stay a 9.8 out of 10.

Why? Two things. Insecure WIFI and Parking Garage is way too small.

Since we work at a tech company, we understand the value of secure internet. The WIFI at this house doesn't have a password so it's an insecure connection (hint: don't login to your bank account). We just used a VPN to get around this, but I recommend the owners to put a password on their routers (very easy) but it will protect guest's information from intruders. Right now anyone can login to the network and setup a sniffer to steal passwords (sorry for the techy lingo).

The other issue was the garage. It's not made for SUVs. I read another review that mentioned this when booking the property, but trust me it's really small.

I parked my rental SUV in there with the help of my friend navigating. My other friend didn't feel comfortable parking his BMW x5 in there but we got lucky. We met the housekeeper and she let us park the car next door (because that property is also owned by the same owner) and it was vacant for the duration of our stay.

Since everything was in the walking distance, I never had to drive during our entire 5 day stay. So this wasn't a big issue for us.

If you have a small car (i.e Camry or Corolla) you'd be fine. Larger car owners, if you don't feel comfortable parking, then you can also feed the city parking meter in front of the house.
