FAMILY-FRIENDLY, HISTORIC DISTRICT TOWNHOUSE

Savannah Townhome Rental Photos and Description

historic townhome, 2 Bedrooms, 1 1/2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Built in 1905, the little yellow townhouse by Whitefield Square features original heart pine floors, 12' ceilings, 4 fireplaces, and an abundance of natural light.

A sweet back porch and private, well-shaded backyard make a serene backdrop for morning coffee or evening wine and conversation.

Situated in a residential section of Savannah's beautiful historic district, Townhouse 428 is within easy walking distance of popular destinations like River Street and City Market. Antique shops, museums, boutiques, and restaurants, including Clary's Cafe - made famous/infamous in 'Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil' - are all just a few minutes walk from the house.

While you can enjoy Savannah on foot from this great location, there is also easy parking options across the street, as well as a free shuttle service that stops nearby.

In addition to its original charming detail, the townhouse offers two airy upstairs bedrooms, a well equipped kitchen, 1 1/2 bathrooms, a dining room, and a comfortable living room with cable and wifi. Each bedroom hosts a queen size bed; additionally, there is a pull out sofa and inflatable matress for extra guests. The house comfortably sleeps 4-6 guests, with extra options for children.

Tastefully furnished, the house is uncluttered and family-friendly, with a closetful of kid gear, including baby gates, a crib, strollers, and a high chair - even a baby monitor.

Everything you need for an exciting day and relaxing evening are here!

Come stay at Townhouse 428, and live like a local.

Guestbook comments from the owner
The trolley tour that picked us up in front of the Cathedral was informative and

also convenient in that we could get on and off all day. We enjoyed the Piano

Bar near River Street, and we just loved walking around town. We loved the stay

so much we would like to just move there now. We can't wait to come back. -Bill

and Helen

We are a family of four; the girls are 5 years old and 7 years old. They love Savannah as much as we do, and have been vacationing here since they were born.

Travis Loller and James Nichols purchased this townhome in 2003

We lived in this house when we were working in Savannah and Hilton Head. Our work took us elsewhere, and we have kept the home because we love spending time here.

Tall ceilings, the warm glow of heart pine floors and tastefully restrained furnishings create a peaceful, relaxing atmosphere and make it a pleasure to spend time here. For free entertainment, just step outside and tour the historic district. We're a short walk from just about everything including numerous restaurants; an ice cream parlor; a historic theater that hosts movies, plays and musical performances; Forsyth Park with its iconic fountain and a children's playground; book stores; grocery stores; bars and antiques.

FEELS LIKE BEING IN ANOTHER TIME-LOVED IT!

  • 5 of 5
Savannah feels like being in another place in time, all the appeal of yesteryear. The house is exactly as described and depicted. Modern convenience combined with old world charm. We were really happy with it. Although this location is a walker's paradise, we chose several restaurants to drive to: Girabaldi's on Congress St. is incredible -compares with Commanders Palace in New Orleans. We also had an excellent meal at Sundae Cafe on Tybee Island, and at Tubby's (Casual seafood place on River St.) Highly recommend this townhouse for charm and convenience.

EXCELLENT PROPERTY

  • 5 of 5
The house was very conveniently located and well-kept. We were travelling with six adults so things were a little tight, but we knew this going in! Also noticed the house was very well-equipped for small children and those staying for longer periods!

ADEQUATE HOUSE IN WONDERFUL SAVANNAH

  • 3 of 5
My wife is on sabbatical and we wanted to escape Toronto for 3 weeks from this winter's brutal global warming. There seems to be a lot of hype by travellers comparing Charleston and Savannah, with Charleston winning out on votes. So after arriving at our 2 bedroom rental town house in Savannah, we took a short curiosity visit to Charleston and offer our comments. In a nut shell it seems that while Charleston wants to compete with Savannah, Savannah simply wants to left alone. While Charleston struts out it's stuff, (mostly white white houses) on narrow streets with few trees, Savannah confidently paints it's houses in pastel colours, which are largely hidden by large magnificent oak trees dripping with Spanish Moss, on wide majestic streets with many squares featuring monuments to it's founders and defenders. Savannah's historical district is much larger and is a walker's museum. Add in the Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) and hands down, Savannah is preferable and where we will return.
Our rental town house was pretty much as expected from the description (location, appearance, great floors, clean), but there were a few improvements that could be made at low cost, mainly at the back of the house. The kitchen is tiny with very little counter space and could be planned out better. Also more and better use could be made with the back porch and backyard. First the back door should have a window to bring the outside in for more natural light and be more inviting to actually step out to the porch. A sky light in the porch roof would bring more light to the kitchen and dining room. The back yard could be made more inviting. These small changes at the back would greatly enhance a small but nice townhouse with a good living room, dining room and interesting 2nd floor with 2 bedrooms which have a door between them. We did like it the house, but only wish to offer helpful comments to the kind and courteous owners.
Thanks for renting to us, George and Judith

GREAT FAMILY FRIENDLY PLACE TO STAY

  • 5 of 5
We stayed with 3 kids and 4 adults and had a great time! It was awesome that they had "kid" dishes and my 2 year old loved the little backyard area off of the patio. The location was perfect and we didn't use the car at all during our long weekend!

GREAT LOCATION AND VERY ACCOMMODATING

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed our stay here while in Savannah. We visit from Atlanta several times a year and this was a pretty good location near the historic district. The house was clean, decent enough parking across the street and had everything we needed in the kitchen and home. Many thanks to the owners.

GREAT ACCESS

  • 4 of 5
We chose this rental on a business exploration trip, hoping to skip the 2 rooms per couple/ 100 per night hotel stay. Our group (4 adults/ 2 Couples) got in late, but had no trouble getting access; and check out was effortless.

Pros: Good accessible downtown location, everything within a mile (had the option to drive or walk for meals or site seeing), owners and property manager available by text and email - we never physically saw either, rates were competitive with the market, linens and towels were clean and fresh, the night sleep was good!

Neutrals: Parking was on one of two side streets, apple tv only (no cable), small dvd library, no or poor local tv reception, older place could use some paint refreshing (in and out).

Cons: None

If you are looking for a home base for 4 our less people to explore downtown savannah, this would be a good option. > We would rent again for this purpose.
