Lovely city and great time

  • 5 of 5

I rented this house for a girls weekend away. The house was perfect for the 5 of us. The home was clean and well appointed. Loved sitting on the porch getting caught up. Would definitely rent this house again if we ever return to Savannah.

Super convenient

  • 5 of 5

Eleven family members stayed here to participate in a Half Marathon and we all loved it. There is plenty of room, it's a very clean property and having the claw foot tubs helped some of us after the race (long, hot soak). There is a gas fireplace in every room, including the bedrooms. At first I was concerned about the grocery store across the street in terms of traffic, but it turned out to be a huge convenience for restocking supplies. The location is also convenient to several Savannah attractions, and the city is easy to navigate. Parking is convenient in the back of the house. The teens took over the third floor, which has a large TV room and game room. Owner is very responsive and pleasant and has numerous brochures at the house for area attractions. The only negative is the street noise at night, some of us are not used to it, some in the group didn't notice it. But, all in all, a beautifully restored, clean, comfortable place for a large group.

Historic and charming property that has been tastefully renovated.

  • 5 of 5

We visited Savannah for my youngest daughter’s 21st birthday. We found this fantastic home through VRBO and were really pleased. The home is about 130 years old and has an amazing history that is chronicled in documents and building plans in both booklets and pictures throughout the home. There were eight of us in the home and with five bedrooms and extra sleeping areas in addition to the bedrooms their was plenty of room. Good sized kitchen, large dinning table and a comfortable living room. There was also a den on the third floor with a very large flat screen TV. There aren’t many places to buy groceries in the historic area so having a Kroger across the side street was very helpful. We made plenty of trips to the Kroger for quick fill in Items. The house is located about one mile from downtown. We walked downtown several times and took different streets each time so we could see all the beautiful parks and homes. Highly recommend this property.
