Loved the old-word charm.

  • 4 of 5
Our group of three couples had plenty of room in this charming house. The upstairs was a complete apartment with a kitchen, two bedrooms and a dining room. There were a few problems at first due to bad internet wiring telephone line and problems with the TV cables. Once our engineers figured out what was needed, Christine promptly bought those items. Also, there were some items missing from the kitchens, but she promptly replaced those. She checked on us periodically to make sure everything was fine and even came to the house to deliver the items herself. Of course, I left some things behind and Christine found them and sent them to me at her cost. I would highly recommend this place and the gracious hostess. After everything has been replaced and with high-speed Internet now there, it should get a 5-star rating. Thank you so much Christine!

Owner's Response: Kathy,
What delightful guests you all are! We are so glad you all enjoyed your stay with us. We enjoyed having you. Thanks for the group photo. Let the Engineers know that the high speed wireless has been installed correctly now and please thank them for the wiring lessons too! I appreciate you letting me know and allowing me to bring you the items missing from the kitchen. I took your advice and there is now a broiler there. We look forward to seeing you all again soon.
All the best,
Christine

Spacious, Comfortable, Clean

  • 5 of 5
I reserved this home for a "girls getaway" for six ladies and we were all very pleased with our accommodations. Upon arrival we found the home to be very clean and spacious. Linens are provided and were plentiful. The kitchen both upstairs and downstairs were full size and had ice makers. We all took showers/baths and had plenty of hot water. There are five fireplaces, however, none of them are currently operational. As stated by other reviewers previously, the two bedrooms facing the front of the home are not very dark at night due to the bay windows, street lights and thinner blinds. There were televisions in all the bedrooms as well as in the living room downstairs and all were functional. Although there is parking off-street in the back of the home, it is a bit narrow and flanked by a brick wall located on a very narrow street/alley. If you have an oversized vehicle like a Suburban or extended cab/bed truck, you will most likely need to park on the street in front of the home where there is sufficient space. Christine was EXTREMELY professional and helpful. When I arrived home (we live about 4 hours from Savannah), I had a message on my telephone from Christine stating a cell phone and charger had been found. After speaking with her, she graciously volunteered to mail these items to me. Thank you Christine for your "Southern Hospitality".

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for choosing our Victorian for your "girls getaway". We are so glad you all enjoyed the home!

Please allow us to address your concerns...
In the 1800's the homes were built very close to each other as is the case with most properties in downtown Savannah. I can assure you that even though tight, oversized vehicles are still utilizing the off street parking available as they have for many years.

In an effort to protect the home and the fact that most historic homes were not constructed in a way to prevent fire, as a precaution, the fireplaces are now only for aesthetic value as we discussed. We have, with guidance from our local fire fighters, insured early detection and prevention from such.

The two bedrooms on the front of the home are the largest because of the floor to ceiling bay windows which invite the sunlight into the home.

We hope you all will be our guests when you come this way again. It was a delight serving you all. God bless!

A great house! Perfect for Statesboro grad trip

  • 5 of 5
My sister rented this house for her family who was coming to Stateboro for our nephews college graduation. It was about an hour to Stateboro but we really enjoyed our Savannah stay before and after. The house is perfectly located and absolutely gorgeous inside. We were very comfortable and enjoyed the back brick patio for a great BBQ after the event.

I think renting a house such as this is a perfect alternative to a hotel in Savannah. There are so many things to see and do within a couple of miles, we will come back when we have more time and investigate.

Thanks for sharing your beautiful home with us.

Great house for a family get-together

  • 5 of 5
We rented this house from Christine to celebrate a graduation from Georgia Southern! We had family coming in from all over and needed something that could provide room for us as well as a gathering place! This was just what we needed! The place was huge, and had a great old feel. There are two large bedrooms downstairs and two large bedrooms upstairs as well as two kitchens which we put to good use. The back patio is perfect for a large group and cooking out. We really had fun! Great family times! The pictures do not do it justice! It has a great location near Forsyth Park and we walked down to the river in about 20 minutes (about 1 mile). There is a great charcoal fireplace on the patio and the patio is brick with lots of cool statues. Parking was on the back patio or in front of the house. Beds are comfortable but rooms in the front of the house never get very dark at night due to huge windows and lot of light. Bathrooms have big claw tubs and showers. The pull out couch was not overly comfortable but would be fine for kids! Overall, it was a great house and I would recommend Christine put more pictures onthe website to do it better justice. Just a great place for families or friends trying to get together. We were fairly close to the I16 so that we could easily get back and forth to Statesboro for the graduation and festivities! Enjoyed our stay thoroughly, thanks Christine!

Beautiful Rental Home

  • 5 of 5
We just returned home from a 3-night stay here for a friend's wedding. Even after seeing the pictures and speaking to Christine, we were pleasantly surprised at the accessability and appearance of this property. It was even more beautiful than advertised and within easy driving distance (and, at times, reasonable walking distance) of anything that we needed.

The only drawback was the lack of a door on the back bedroom on the 2nd floor (this room was obviously used as another common living area in previous incarnations of the house and attached to the upstairs kitchen and dining room), but a bed sheet and push pins quickly solved that problem.

Christine was wonderful to deal with and much more helpful and accomodating than owners or agents of several other properties that I researched.

We didn't get to take full advantage of the location so close to Forsyth Park, the Historic District, and River Street due to requirements of the event we were attending, but hope to return soon on a true vacation. This property is absolutely number 1 on our list for any return trip to Savannah.

Thank you again Christine for all your help.

Girl Scouts Stay!

  • 5 of 5
I had a Girl Scout Troop who were visiting The Birthplace and choose to stay at this house. What an upgrade from 4 hotel rooms!!! The price might not have been much different but being able to cook our own food instead of eating out was a great plus. This house is close to both Forsyth Park and Kroger's. Wonderful experience all the way around.
