Classy, Clean, Comfortable and Perfect. As Advertised.

  • 5 of 5

This magnificent home was very much as advertised and proved to be a perfect venue for our 3-day Savannah mini-vacation. Each of the 2 bedrooms (and spacious baths) are large. Beds are very comfortable. The bedrooms as well as the first-floor living and dining rooms combine period southern charm (late 19th century) with tastefull modern comforts. Know that the kitchen is a bit on the small side, but hey, we're eating out anyway. And as I write this I'm sitting on the cool and cozy side porch looking out over the park just across the street. I would certainly come again to Savannah and stay here. Highly recommend.

When you think Savannah, think the Italiante Mansion on Forsyth!

  • 5 of 5

Our family stay at the Italiante Mansion will be one of our favorites of the many times we have visited Savannah. Right in the heart of history and charm sits this beautiful home. It welcomes you from the front door, to the grand stairs and the beautifully decorated, comfortable and homey rooms. The grounds of the home are inviting and comfortable. Sitting on the side porch overlooking Forsyth Park was one of our favorite ways to spend an afternoon. The homeowner, Diana, was very attentive to all of the guest needs, provides all the necessary information needed for a comfortable and interesting stay in Savannah. As we look toward a future trip to Savannah, we will definitely consider the Italiante Mansion. Truly, an historic jewel in this beautiful city.

Grand Old Lady

  • 5 of 5

We arrived 2 days after Hurricane Matthew hit the area. Area suffered some damage but power was on, internet and cell phone service working and clean up crews working everywhere to clean up the city. The house was lovely and located right across the street from Forsyth Park. Just as it appears in the pictures. Comfy beds, kitchen well stocked with basics; the fridge is small so do not bring too many perishables with you at one time. There were 3 of us there for 3 days so it worked perfectly for us. Owner lives on site and there are other rental units on the premises . That being said, you will hear the others at times ( I heard a child crying a couple of times from the gorgeous ocean colored bedroom) and I'm sure they will hear you ( wood floors, high ceilings, etc. ,) so just be respectful. When we were there, there was a new construction site at the end of the block ( like 2-3 sites down) that started work at 7AM. It worked as an early wake up call for us but hopefully the work will be finished quickly and not impact the area too long. The bedrooms have TV's ( none in the main living area of the house which would have been great. We had to curl up on my bed in the evenings to watch DVD's we had brought with us) but they are smaller and placed a bit oddly in the bedrooms . We walked everywhere during the day ( there was a curfew starting at 10PM while we were there so we drove out in the evenings in case we were running late getting back before 10PM) ! Several restaurants and cafes within walking distance. Street parking was available right in front of the house each night. Fell in love with Savannah and the house. We definitely plan on coming back

Elegant and comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in the Italianate Mansion! The house was beautiful and comfortable.

The grounds were lovely and private. Diana was available but not intrusive at all.

The property is located across from Forsyth Park and just

outside the Historic district. We walked everywhere, however, if you

have limited physical capability be aware it is a significant walk to the River Front.

The kitchen is small but makes the most use of the space. As others have

mentioned the fridge is a dorm size but we were able to get quite a lot into it. There is

a grocery store within walking distance, maybe 5 or 6 blocks away.

It was very hot and humid when we visited but the house is air conditioned and we were

comfortable. The beds were comfortable. There is a small washer and dryer and each bedroom has it's

own private bath, plus a 1/2 bath downstairs. Speaking of stairs. The staircase is steep so you might

want to consider that when packing your suitcase!

I would definitely stay there again. Thank you Diana for sharing your beautiful home with us!

Beautiful home and fantastic location!

  • 5 of 5

Truly enjoyed our stay at the Italianate Mansion on Forsyth Park. The location was perfect for all the activities we participated in during our stay in Savannah. We didn't have to drive as we were close to everything and were able to find what we needed close by, and a Trolley stop was just down from our location so we were able to enjoy that convenience as well. Wonderful stay - only downside was the noise from the construction two doors down - but that should be completed by the new year hopefully.
