Townhome, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4-8)

The Mimosa House is circa 1890’s historic townhome walking distance to Savannah’s Historic District. Located on a tree lined street, dripping with Spanish moss. Restored home with high ceilings, heart pine floors, and fenced backyard with large deck overlooking garden. Antique furnishings and artwork by local artists set the decor. One block from the twenty-plus acre Forsyth Park with playgrounds, tennis and basketball courts, and many year round festivals including the start of Savannah’s renowned St. Patrick’s Day Parade.

Walk, bike, or travel via horse drawn carriage, tour bus, or pedicab to River Street, City Market, museums, shopping, grocery store and restaurants, including infamous Paula Deen’s Lady and Son’s Restaurant. The Mimosa House is central to all that historic Savannah has to offer. An information book is provided to assist with sightseeing, shopping and dining plans.

Conveniently located by car to championship golf courses, boat charters, historic forts, family beaches on Tybee Island, and Hilton Head Island. This town house is a perfect accommodation for your visit to Georgia’s First City. One compact car parking space is conveniently located out back. Ample un-metered street parking is also available.

About Christen

My husband and I both moved to Savannah to attend the Savannah College of Art and Design - and as you can imagine, we fell in love with Savannah and never left! My husband is an artist and I founded and run an educational non-profit.

Christen purchased this townhome in 2007

Why Christen chose Savannah

Savannah is a destination, and when you live in a destination, family and friends visit often! After years of accommodating our friends and family, it was at their recommendation that we looked into purchasing a vacation rental. We selected the Mimosa House because we loved the area - close to everything! a beautiful block, large yard and deck overlooking garden for our four-legged visitors or to enjoy the beautiful weather! A cozy place to call home on your next vacation.

What makes this townhome unique

Our most unique feature of the home is the art collection! Most of which we traded with the artists themselves and some of my husband's original pieces as well. Additionally, the large deck overlooking the garden is an excellent way to enjoy our Savannah weather year round! Staying in a historic building also captures Savannah's unique Southern charm!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Once upon a time, in this house in downtown Savannah, close friends and family met for a Thanksgiving celebration which was going to be unlike any they had ever experienced. We had the time of our lives. Thanks for the memories "Mimosa House".

First time in Savannah - won't be the last!

  • 5 of 5

I had a group of friends all come together to stay in this beautiful home in the historic district of Savannah, for a car show - The European Experience. The house inside and out was beautiful - the decor, the feel and the surrounding area. It's a short walk to Forsyth Park (which is beautiful!) and super conveniently close to Kroger's. The location is centralized to the historic district, Tybee Beach, Hutchinson Island and downtown Savannah. The owners were so nice and helpful. We had quite a few people staying with us but none the less the owners were very understanding and patient!

All of us here who stayed at the house want to thank you for letting us enjoy your beautiful home and we hope to be back in the near future! :)

Perfect for Girls' Getaway

  • 4 of 5

The property is comfy and convenient to the city. Kroger Food Store is right around the corner. Five of us found it fine for sleeping arrangements. We all enjoyed walking to some sights, but found parking near the river too. We would recommend Mimosa House and return there too.

Suggestion: Mirrors in the downstairs powder room and in the trunk room would be very helpful.

Thank you for a pleasant stay in Savannah.

Bridesmaids Home Base

  • 5 of 5

I rented this house for me and my bridesmaids for my wedding weekend. It was absolutely perfect for the occasion! The venue was only a couple blocks away, and Kroger was right down the street (for mimosa ingredients, of course!) and plenty of parking for the hair and makeup people who came to house on Saturday morning. The kitchen was super useful in that we cooked breakfast each morning as opposed to going out to eat for every meal. We loved our time there!

Just what we were looking for!

  • 5 of 5

Four adults and a dog stayed at the Mimosa House but there was room for visitors in this comfortable home. We enjoyed the deck and the backyard as well. Close to Forsyth Park and walking distance to downtown. Beds were comfortable, kitchen table big enough for us to all sit around for a meal. Would definitely stay here again!

Lovely House in a Great Neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

The house was beautiful and was located on a quiet street within a 2 minute walk to a grocery store and about a 20 minute walk to the downtown area of Savannah. The house was well equipped with everything we needed to cook each day and the hosts, who live next door, were incredibly friendly and available for any questions we had.
