About the property

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.

About Travis Loller and James Nichols

We are a family of four; the girls are 8 years old and 10 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

Why Travis Loller and James Nichols chose Savannah

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.

What makes this townhome unique

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.

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

Very nice place for kids

  • 4 of 5

The townhouse is just as described, clean, well kept, and in a great location. Unfortunatly a storm came in as soon as we got there knocking out the air conditioning. We contacted the agent and they responded promptly, they called their repair man ( who was there within the hour) but it could not be fixed. The agents put us in a great hotel for the remainder of our stay. Sometimes these things happen but it was all handled quickly and professionally and we look forward to staying here on our next visit.

Lovely Townhouse in an Amazing City

  • 5 of 5

Upon arriving to the house and taking a look around all the guests kept talking about how cute the entire place was. Everywhere we wanted to go was a relatively short walk and since the weather was nice our entire stay walking was the perfect way to travel. All of the questions I had were quickly answered via text. I would recommend this house to anyone trying to find a place to stay in Savannah!

Great Family-Friendly Place

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here with my 6-year-old son and infant daughter. The townhouse was very pleasant, simply furnished and uncluttered, and very clean. We made good use of the amenities for kids - the crib, baby monitor and books. The owners and manager were all very responsive and easy to work with. The location was great, a block from Whitefield Square and conveniently close to the playgrounds at Forsyth Park and Mother Matilda Beasley Park. The house is on Price Street, which can be a bit loud with traffic, so if anyone is a light sleeper I'd recommend bringing a white noise maker. I highly recommend staying at this townhouse.

Loved the Storyhouse

  • 4 of 5

We loved our stay at the yellow house on Price Street. Myself, two siblings, mom and 6 month baby had the most enjoyable stay in Savannah thanks to the convenience and amenities at the house. We were in town for the half marathon and came a little early to enjoy the city. The house had everything we needed, I especially found all the kids stuff so helpful, there was even an infant tub to use for baths!! I would recommend this house to anyone, with or without kids. It is located within walking distance of everything. The Kroger (supermarket) down the street was really helpful too. Thank you for your hospitality!!

Lovely place

  • 5 of 5

The house was just as advertised. It's adorable, very clean and comfortable. My sister's family met my son and I in Savannah and we all shared the house together. It was perfect for that use. We took advantage of the umbrella strollers that were there, as well as plenty of toddler cups and plates. I really loved having access to a kitchen -- it made reheating some of the awesome seafood we got locally a breeze, which definitely made the house a better choice than a hotel. The location is nice, though it's on a one-way street. Still, parking was a breeze, and we were able to walk to local stores, restaurants and playgrounds. It's about a 20-minute drive to the beach, so that's convenient as well. The stairs are steep and wood, so it was a little nerve-wracking to have two toddlers threatening to navigate them, and the back yard is too small for playing, but those are small observations overall. It's a fantastic little spot, and the owners made it very easy on us. I'm very happy with our choice. That's especially relieving as this was my first VRBO/HomeAway experience. Thanks for making it a pleasant one!
