Being a resident of PA, Savannah became a regular visit due to our son being a SCAD student. We visited once to often and decided that Savannah should become our retirement. home. Our son moved on to California and we stayed here.

My wife, Betsy is a retired school teacher and I retired from a retail business. We still have a summer home in PA.

The Owner purchased this house in 2004

We fell in love with this home due to its proximity to the Historic District and Forsyth Park. We walk everywhere. Always something to do or see. Great friendly people. Even being close to the beach. Our princess home needed a complete going over but still had its 1870 bones. We like to think we helped bring her into the 21st century.

The first time we stepped foot into our home my wife said I could live here. The house was charming but needed lots work. The courtyard made it all worthwhile. We spent many a day painting, having new a/c and heating installed, roof, bathrooms and the kitchen. The most fun was finding the antiques to place in our home. It all worked.

Historic Home in Savannah

Great location, gracious owner, beautiful home. We stayed with another couple and each had enough room without getting in the way. Forsyth Park is almost across the street and you can walk to the downtown area without a problem. The back patio is an excellent spot for an afternoon drink. The home has been renovated but retains the "old feel" but with modern conveniences. Highly recommneded.

Wonderful house and location. Very accomodating owners too!

We arrived on Christmas Eve, and met one of the owner, who was dropping off fresh cut flowers-what a nice welcome. The house is very tastefully appointed. There is a charming half bathroom downstairs, and two full bathrooms on the second floor.

My husband, who is a tea drinker, really appreciated the instant hot water faucet in the kitchen. The house has every kitchen gadget known to man, and we wanted for nothing. It has cable with many stations, but we spent the majority of our week-long visit site seeing and experiencing the great neighborhoods.

The house is only a block from Forsyth Park (which is stop 5 on the trolley), and only 22 blocks from River Street (with some blocks being very short ones). We both loved walking throughout the historic district & we walked the round trip to River Street at least once each day.

Larry and Betsy were wonderfully willing to answer our questions regarding churches in the area, etc. The house is within walking distance to the cathedral, so we were able to leave our car parked at the house curb and walk for services without worrying about parking once we got to mass.

When we return to Savannah we will definitely consider staying here again.

Thanksgiving

We enjoyed our visit very much. Our host, Larry was very helpful and easy to work with . We liked the fact that the townhouse was isolated from all the hustle and bustle but near everything in the historic district. It was very well equipped and comfortable. We enjoyed the walks in Forsyth Park with our little dog. The restaurant recommendations were great and were within easy walking distance . We highly recommend this home

A Completely Delightful Stay

We very much enjoyed staying at the John Houston house in May 2013 and it was very pleasant working with Larry, Betsy and Ariel. Their warmth, helpfulness and friendliness made the whole process a breeze. Regarding the townhouse, we couldn’t have been more pleased. It is everything VRBO says it is and more! The house is charming, spacious, beautifully appointed and thoroughly provisioned. My sister-in-law said that in her 12 years of renting holiday houses, she has never stayed in a place so well supplied. Everything was neat and clean as can be, and all appliances, etc. were in fine working order. We made good use of the charming and private patio each evening after a long day sightseeing. She and I agreed that it seemed as though we were staying in the beautiful home of a friend—not in a rental. This was underscored one evening when we couldn’t open a jar of soup for our dinner. My sister-in-law went out looking for help and found it in one of the lovely neighbors—who invited her into her own kitchen to find the tool to open the jar. The location of the house is superb too and street parking was always easily available just outside the door. It was also nice to able to walk anywhere in town if we wished. Of course we loved Savannah. It is uniquely beautiful and interesting. I must say, I have never seen and smelled so much jasmine. Heavenly! We also took Larry’s advice and drove to Beaufort for the day. What a treat. We ate at the Beaufort Inn, which we would heartily recommend to others. All and all, the stay could not have been better.

Charming townhome in perfect location!

we traveled to savannah with another couple for St. Patricks weekend. Larry was so easy to work with prior to our trip. The house exceeded our expectations. We loved that it was historic yet modern and very comfortable. The caretake was very accomodating by letting us drop our luggage while the house was being cleaned. We could walk everywhere and loved that Forsythe Park was just down the street. The street was quiet and beautiful, we love walking under the spanish moss.
The courtyard was perfect for a cocktail and we loved the complimentary bottle of wine, it was the perfect start to our weekend. We all fell in love with Savannah and cannot wait to return!! Thank you for sharing your beautiful house!!
