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

Good Vacation

  • 3 of 5

We stayed at this property during St. Patricks weekend. The location was okay it is on a busy street I would say. If you are a light sleeper like me I would definetly bring a sound machine. The windows are not sealed well so you can hear everything and everyone who drives or walks by. Also the curtains on the windows are sheer so it becomes bright in the room very early. River street is a little far from this property so be aware to wear good shoes to walk it's about a 15-20 min walk I would say. Everything else in the property was good. We enjoyed our stay and look forward to visiting Savannah again sometime soon.

A real gem in the historic district

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic historic house with gorgeous architecture and furniture. House was very homely and relaxing. Two bedrooms worked out well for traveling with a baby and had baby equipment available. Great location and gorgeous neighborhood with short walk to center and beautiful houses and parks nearby. Street at night was busier than expected and with older house noise was a bit more noticeable. Overall highly recommended, fantastic stay.

For total immersion in the Savannah experience, we suggest you stay here!

  • 5 of 5

On our recent 5 day trip to Savannah what we were most interested in seeing was the architecture in the historic district and the famous Live Oak trees in the 22 city squares. We couldn't have chosen a better launch site for this purpose than the street where the Little Yellow Townhouse is located. Every morning all we had to do was step out the front door and thus began our daily walking tours of Savannah. None of our destinations were too far away to walk to and walking is simply the best way to see all that Savannah has to offer.

The townhouse with its many fireplaces, high ceilings and polished pine floors was simply charming. It was very commodious, tastefully decorated and had a well stocked kitchen. It was so solidly built and insulated we were never bothered by street noise despite it being on a busy street.

My favorite spot was the back porch where I could sip my coffee in the morning while watching warblers flit through the canopy overhead.

We heartily recommend this townhouse to anyone interested in the total immersion experience of Savannah!

Great location, cozy, well-stocked home

  • 5 of 5

Such a lovely home! Located in the historic district-- easy to walk anywhere but just a bit removed from the tourist hustle & bustle. The kitchen had everything we needed for cooking and the bedrooms were quite comfortable. We really enjoyed the small back porch. It was the perfect place for morning coffee or an evening drink. Would definitely recommend this house!

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.
