About Robbie Bell

My name is Robbie Bell. I work in real estate. I love to travel. After having the opportunity to travel to many different cities, I still believe that Savannah is one of the most beautiful cities in the world. The history, architecture, and local culture of Savannah are all unique. What better way to experience the architecture and history of Savannah than staying in a beautiful historic home? I really can't think of any.

This picture was taken while visiting Chengdu, China in early 2009. While in Chengdu, I was fortunate enough to visit the Giant Panda Research Center and interact with a panda cub, under the supervision of a research scientist.

Robbie Bell purchased this house in 2000

Why Robbie Bell chose Historic District - North

I believe that Savannah is one of the most beautiful cities in the world. I had always dreamed of owning a historic home in this incredible city. In 2000, I purchased this home, which at the time was operating as an owner occupied Bed and Breakfast. For 2 years, I operated the property as a Bed and Breakfast. In 2002, my family and I were able to travel to Italy. While in Italy, the entire family stayed in a villa. After that experience, I decided that families and groups traveling to Savannah should be able to experience my city that way too. In 2003, I ceased operating this home as a Bed and Breakfast and began offering this property as a vacation rental home exclusively. Savannah is such a great city...why not experience the history for yourself.

What makes this house unique

Our home is conveniently located in the heart of Savannah’s landmark historic district on Broughton Street between Price and Houston Street. Guests can easily walk to our beautiful green squares & other historic sites. There are many shops and fine restaurants within a five minute walk. We have off-street parking for two vehicles as well as street parking.

Superior accommodation and location for holiday

  • 4 of 5

Very clean and well furnished for the most part. Excellent location and no need for a car...(a good thing as only a small compact can negociate the sharp turn into the garage). Very good value. Nice linens and thoughtful touches throughout.

Historic Show-Stopper & Perfect Wedding Rental

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I rented this home (along with its carriage house) as "home base" for the week of our wedding and it was PERFECT in every respect. The location was convenient for all the the running around we needed to do in the historic district, the privacy of the courtyard allowed us to entertain inside and out, and the convenience of the private garage parking made it hassle-free to deal with our luggage and truckload of other wedding-related cargo.

The property was clean and in great shape, and each bedroom in the main house was interesting in terms of architecture and decoration. The carriage house is capable of functioning as a full separate residence, with TVs, kitchen, fridge, living room, and up-to-date bathroom.

Helen was available by phone any time we needed her and could not have made the experience any easier.

I would recommend this rental to anyone looking to enjoy Savannah's historic district while living in a beautiful piece of the city's history.

One final thing - I can confirm the garage does fit an extended cab Silverado, but only just!

Wonderful property exactly as advertised!

  • 5 of 5

We spent four days in this beautiful house and adjoining carriage house. The location was great. We walked virtually everywhere and Savannah is a beautiful city to visit. We did have a car and it was very nice to park it in the garage on the property. The pictures accurately represent the property and it was very well furnished. The owners were wonderful to work with and even allowed us a late checkout when I called them. They were very responsive. I would definitely stay in this property again and hope to do so soon. You certainly cannot go wrong with renting 511 E Broughton!!!

Our stay was absolutely amazing! This house is so incredibly beautiful. And so big! We had plenty of space for everyone in our group and never felt like we were tripping over each other. The artwork, furniture, and decorations are gorgeous. The location is within walking distance to tons of restaurants and parks. We loved every minute of our stay and will definitely be back.

Great home!

  • 5 of 5

Loved the home! Perfectly stocked kitchen with all the necessities since we took our meals with us to heat and eat. The carriage house was perfect for my teenager and her friends the girls really enjoyed having their own private mini house. It's right in the heart of downtown Savannah perfect walking distance from everything. We really enjoyed staying here and were even able to go to the beach one day since it was only about 30 minutes to Tybee.

Beautiful house in walking distance to everywhere we wanted to go

  • 5 of 5

Everyone in my group loved the house. We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. It was great because we could walk down to the City Market area. It was a very easy walk in case we stop by before going somewhere else.
