Gorgeous private house close to Forsyth Park!

  • 5 of 5

Houston House is a lovely home located two short blocks from Forsyth Park. The house is beautifully decorated and maintains the charm of the original building which dates back to 1870. Bedrooms and bathrooms are large and private. The owners certainly keep their visitor's comforts in mind. We can't wait to return to this beautiful home! Thank you James for a wonderful stay!

Magical townhouse!

  • 5 of 5

This townhouse is incredibly comfortable and it's quite the hidden gem in a great part of town.

James is extremely gracious and very accommodating. I would come back in a heartbeat!

Hands Down the Best Vacation Rental

  • 5 of 5

Houston House was by far the best vacation rental I have ever stayed at! Every inch of the property was perfection and the owners were beyond welcoming and helpful! It took me two whole days to actually go do anything in Savannah because I was enjoying the house so much. I will definitely be going back! Thank you James and Jason for the best vacation home ever!!!!!

Second superb stay!

  • 5 of 5

Last year (2016), myself and two other family members toured the States, staying at various Airbnb rentals.  We visited some great properties but none of them came close to Houston House (the last stop on our trip and absolutely the icing on the cake)!  Apart from being beautifully decorated and in the perfect location to be able to explore the centre of Savannah by foot (a stone's throw from Forsyth Park) the house was also exceptionally equipped (you name it, they have thought of it)!  As someone who hates staying anywhere less than "OCD clean" and who admires beautiful bedding, carefully lit rooms and thoughtful design touches I am a bit of hard person to 'wow' but Houston House certainly has the 'wow factor' and made all of our party determined to stay there again whenever we could.

When we arrived back this year, James made sure he was there to greet us and run through a number of new features in the house/give us recommendations regarding new additions to the Savannah food and drink scene.  A beautiful food hamper had been left for us, full of local treats, and James encouraged us to get in touch at any time, should we have any questions about anything at all.  I cannot say enough good things about Houston House - even during a local thunderstorm I enjoyed the torrential downpour as I was able to watch the weather from a gorgeous vantage point; sitting by the open doors of the 'Juliet balcony' in my bedroom with a glass of wine.  Generally I would say that there is not much you would want to stay indoors for, while visiting somewhere as special as Savannah, but Houston House gives the outdoor scene a run for its money!  Features such as the 'airplay' system in the house (where you can stream music to speakers in all of the rooms) makes getting ready to go out a lot of fun, there is a cabinet jam-packed full of dvds (should you need a night to catch your breath) and there is even a copy of John Berendt's best-seller, "Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil"!  The bathrooms are lovely and well-lit and there is a lot of cupboard space in both bedrooms.  The kitchen is a beautiful space, with anything you may not see on the counter-tops to be found in the cupboards below (such as a microwave, toaster etc.)  I particularly liked being introduced to the Mrs Meyer's cleaning range (which adds to the lovely fragrance in the house).

I would love to keep Houston House a secret, as it is so fantastic, but that would be rather selfish!

Bartlesville, OK

The residence is stunning! Appliances, finishes and bedding all of highest quality.

  • 5 of 5

From start to finish the entire process of this stay was first class!! James is quick to respond and goes out of his way--literally to make sure you are taken care of. We arrived early and dropped our bags at the property. The door code was updated and James found us four blocks away at a pub to personally give us the new code!

We were traveling with another couple to Savannah for the wedding of a friend's son. And our accommodations were without a doubt the best out of the entire group!! Hardwood floors, area rugs, gormet kitchen, cookware and dishes as nice or nicer than I have at home! The newly remodeled property has high end finishes--I recently remodeled our bathrooms at home and they had some of the same quartz counter tops and hardware that I used!!! Zoned air conditioning worked great and the high tech thermostats were very fashionable! There are a lot of light switches (most on reostats) which I didn't figure out for a while. And the motion sensor night light was quite a surprise the first night, but I looked for it each time I turned over in bed the following nights!

The beds are very comfortable and the outdoor patio is perfect for cocktail hour! We have stayed at multiple vbro properties. This was the best!! Looks just like the photos.

If you must list a negative, the couch is a little deep for my body type, so I chose to sit in a chair. We will be back to Savannah and to Houston House. Thanks James for your quick response, flexibility, and great taste!! We will see you Next time we are in Savannah!!
