It is important to note that in Downtown Savannah the homes are very close together and full time residents do live next to the vacation rental homes. In order to respect your neighbors we ask for 'quiet hours' after 10pm. This simply means turn down your music and refrain from shouting, congregating outdoors, etc. Remember when you are on the porches or dropped off by taxi late night you can be heard very well by the surrounding residents. Thank you for your respect and understanding. Drunken, loud, or obnoxious behavior simple will not be tolerated.

About Jon and Carmen

Savannah is our passion. We have a love of her history, her architecture, her people, culture, and lifestyle. We have lived in Downtown Savannah for over 20 years transforming ourselves from renters, to homeowners, to full-time property managers to the more than a dozen historic properties we have been so fortunate to preserve. We have rented a number of our properties over the years to countless corporate and vacationing travelers. We are excited to join the Homeaway/VRBO family to be able to serve you, our guest, every step of the way from initial rental inquiry about our home to completion of your Savannah stay. We look forward to sharing our passion for Savannah and historic homes with you.

Jon and Carmen purchased this townhome in 2005

Why Jon and Carmen chose Victorian District

This beautiful historic home, built in 1891 and nicknamed 'The Janie' for Jane Strous, is one of four majestic Victorian townhomes along Margaret Strous Row in the historic Victorian District. Just a mile walk to the River Front and a few short blocks to the Landmark Historic District, a walker's paradise and mecca for history buffs. The ornate architecture of historic Savannah homes is breathtaking. 'The Janie' maintains so many of her original architectural details that we were in love at first sight. This home is a great example of a classic Savannah Victorian row house convenient to all that Historic Downtown has to offer!

What makes this townhome unique

The size of this house will allow larger parties to comfortably vacation together and the location allows you to walk to the grocery store (Kroger or Brighter Day) as well as restaurants and tourist attractions. The designated free parking is highly sought after as well.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I rented this house for my bachelorette weekend and can't say enough about Savannah! The house was beautiful on the inside with a lot of character! The rooms were super cute and the beds were sooo comfortable. Very clean! Plenty of closet or dresser space for all your things. The kitchen was fully stocked with everything we needed so we cooked each night to save money and have some quality girl time! The grocery store was just a few blocks away and conveniently had a Starbucks in it! River Street was awesome with lots of shops and neat stores. LADIES, I do recommend to wear wedges and not heels! The cobble stones are a real challenge in stilettos or any other heel besides wedges. When trying to find parking close to River Street, don't bother looking for a spot at night, just go ahead and park in the parking garage. It'll save you so much time! This was the perfect weekend getaway with my girlfriends and I can't wait to visit again!

The “Janie” was a perfect spot for our group.

The accommodations were comfortable and had all the comforts of home. The landlords were also very easy to communicate with and very friendly and kind. We would highly recommend.

Loved the house. Great location for walking

  • 4 of 5

Even though the weather wasnt very nice our stay was wonderful. We saw Savannah through the rain and cold. Luckily our last day the sun came out for us. The house was a little chilly and every time qe tried to turn up the heat it would bounce back to the cold temp again. The only 2 things I didnt like about the house... 1) There was no place to store luggage on last day before your plane left. We did find a person who is going to take us on a tour outside the city with our luggage but the hosts were no help with this at all. 2) With so much rain I think a pile of cheap umbrellas would be beneficial for the days we had to walk through the rain drops. Other than that the house was perfect for our group. Loved it !!!

Perfect for a mother daughter GS trip

  • 5 of 5

The home was fabulous. Everything was clean and well appointed. The owners were very considerate and made sure to leave the lights on since we were getting in late. There was plenty of room for everyone. The girls thought they would camp down stairs but scared themselves with ghost stories. We had plenty of room upstairs for all 10 of us. And even with 2 bathrooms and 10 people showering we never ran out of hot water!

The perfect stay

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for a bachelorette party, and it was the perfect house for our group! It is close to a grocery store, so we were able to go get snacks (and drinks). The back patio was the perfect afternoon spot to catch some sun and relax! And as long as you wear comfortable shoes, this house is walkable to the historic district. We ended up walking everywhere during our stay. Carmen was a great host and was easy to get a hold of and very accommodating for our group! Would definitely stay here again!
