This house could not have worked out better for us. It served as the perfect place for a large group of us to stay for a wedding. Thanks again for everything!

Awesome Spot to Reunite with Friends

  • 5 of 5

The owner was very attentive and helpful in the preparation of the visit. My friends and I enjoyed ourselves, thoroughly. The architecture and space is enough for five couples/10 people. If you are visiting Savannah for vacation or relaxation, the uber prices were 5-8 dollars one way. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a house large enough to accommodate 10 people.

Beautiful, historic Savannah home

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful, historic home has been preserved and brought back to its historic beauty. It oozes with southern, Savannah charm. It is conveniently located in the historic district near Forsyth Park and has Kroeber and Starbucks in walking distance. Great location and beautifully appointed home.

Gorgeous Vintage House

  • 5 of 5

This place was amazing! It was exactly what we were looking for. ABSOLUTELY LOVED THE PORCHES! We spent majority of our time outside. Great location and easy to navigate around the area. The house is a really cool house and has a lot of history in it.
