About the property

2 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, 1 half bathroom, sleeps 6

The Victorian at Sanctuary Place was built in 1888 for Dr. E.W. Glidden, a prominent Savannah physician who sat on the Georgia Board of Health. It eventually became the parsonage for the adjacent church and was primarily student housing for the ten years prior to being restored in 2010. The Kitchen, and baths were replaced and upgraded for modern needs - crown molding and plantation shutters were added to fit the period. It has 2 bedrooms and Please not the Victorian 2 1/2 baths, plus a queen- size convertible sofa in the living room. Both beds are queen and the trunk room has been converted to a small bedroom with a twin bed. The Victorian has been thoughtfully appointed and is well stocked with essentials. A side door leads to a lovely courtyard with a fountain and outdoor seating. This historic location is convenient for exploring Savannah by foot or car and a very short walk to Forsythe Park and several local favorites.

sisters trip

  • 5 of 5

We have been working on my sisters bucket list and always try to find historical, older homes for rentals and were we not disappointed!! The house was beautiful and full of Victorian charm. I fell in love with the blank flooring. Then the kitchen and bathrooms were very updated, which was great. I loved the fact we were very close to everything. We could walk to Forsyth Park, a grocery store just a few blocks away. Not only that but we called Old Trolleytours and they sent a shuttle to pick us up so we didn't have to drive to the historical district, and once we were through sightseeing they promptly shuttled us back home. Kevin was great, I had a few questions and called him and he either picked up the phone call or called me right back. Also there were two other rentals sharing our patio area and you could not have ask for better friendly people. We had a grand time!! Only suggestion I had for Kevin was a third chair for the front porch my sisters and I are porch sitters and we used it quite a bit. I would highly recommend this house as long as you don't mind stairs, all the bedrooms are upstairs, which was the tradition of the day.

Lovely home, great visit

  • 5 of 5

My family enjoyed staying at the home. We had everything we needed, and the home was comfortable and lovely, a great location. The beds were comfortable, and the house was clean. The kitchen, although small, was updated and stocked with everything we needed. In our down time we enjoyed the rocking chair on the front porch and the courtyard seating area. A couple of pluses, it was very nice to hear the courtyard fountain from the bedroom I stayed in, and having a parking place on the property.

Loved the House!

  • 5 of 5

My family of five (three teenagers) recently stayed at the house and loved it! It was spacious, well equipped with everything we needed, and a short walk to Forsyth Park! I loved having my morning coffee on the front porch or courtyard. The kitchen was great for cooking meals when we chose to stay in. It was so nice having a washer and dryer as well.

We did the trolley tour of Savannah (recommended to get the history), a ghost tour in a hearse, and traveled (20 min) to Tybee Island to hit the beach a couple of days. We visited River Street (shopping and restaurants), ate at Paula Dean's restaurant, and various other places. The owners were great to work with!

This location, just off the southend of Forsyth Park has a lot of advantages. The first being the park itself: 10 acres of green-space lined with 200 year old, moss covered trees. 2 large playgrounds, tennis and basket ball courts and a large amphitheater with a cafe. The park serves as a center piece for downtown life and acts as a gateway to the historic squares that make up downtown. The farmers market is every Saturday and the park host many events throughout the year. Several local favorites on this end of the park too including the Sentient Bean Cafe and Brighter Day Grocery - 2 indispensable places for many downtown residents. A free shuttle to downtown proper is just a couple of blocks over on Bull St, the trolley stop is also super close.
