Note: If your dates are not available on our calendar for "The Janie", check-out her sister rentals next door; "The Clara",(listing #675595), "The Stella' (listing #971160), or inquire about our other vacation rentals in historic downtown Savannah.

We require a 3-night minimum on weekends most months of the year, so please inquire prior to booking for a quote or if a longer stay than 1 or 2 nights is required if dates are not specifically noted under the "Rates" tab.

Downstairs: Enjoy the spacious floor plan with a modern, fully equipped kitchen that is open to the breakfast room with a table that seats 6; expansive double parlor with living room, flat screen TV and DVD player and formal dining room that seats an additional 6. One of the two vintage-styled bathroom with clawfoot tub is located downstairs.

When renting this home, you will have 2 reserved spaces directly behind the house for off-street, care-free parking! Additional vehicles can park free on the street.

Sleeping arrangements consist of 4 bedrooms on the 2nd floor (a King, a Queen, a large bedroom with 2 Full Size Beds, and the 'trunk room' with a Full bed). There is a Twin Rollaway bed in the closet downstairs which can be placed in any room. There is one full bathroom upstairs (with original clawfoot tub!) by the dressing/laundry room and one full (near identical) bathroom downstairs by the kitchen.

Need more space? 'The Janie' has two 'sister' homes next door, 'The Clara' (listing #675595) and 'The Stella' (listing #971160). A group of 20, well-behaved guests could book both houses and stay side by side. 'The Janie' has hosted hundreds of guests including family reunions, girl's getaway weekends, bachelorette, wedding parties, Girl Scouts, graduation, SCAD weekends, and more. Please inquire if you have any questions!

We love our guests and want them to have a fabulous time. 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!

We stayed here with 2 other couples (6 of us) the house was perfect for our group.

The owner was so helpful and friendly. We loved the special touches. location was great!

We stayed Sat- Mon and never once moved our cars. You can walk to anything in town from the house. We would certainly stay here again!

Loved this old historic home!!

  • 5 of 5

This home was truly amazing. We loved how they refurbished but maintained the old architecture and inner finishings. The front door entry way and original doorbell were so cool to see. All the original fireplaces, tall ceilings, gorgeous staircase (could be straight out of a movie) made this historic home so unique and fun to stay in. But they added comfortable furniture and we had everything we needed. The modern updated kitchen was gorgeous. They had 2 bathrooms, 1 upstairs and 1 downstairs. We had 6 girls and it was never a problem. All the bedrooms were upstairs which was nice. We had a blast playing dominoes and watching movies down stairs. It was on E. Henry street which is in the heart of the city so the road noise was loud at night. However, we wanted an in town location and were able to uber to the river walk for only $8. It was a 22 minute walk if you preferred to go by foot. We shopped along the river, we did the pub crawl ghost tour which was spooky (no we did not see any ghosts!), we had an amazing meal at Chive which we highly recommend. The home owner Carmen was easily available by text or the VRBO app at all times and was super helpful in booking the stay and all the info we needed while there. The 2 parking spots in the back were perfect and convenient. We will definately be back. Highly recommend this listing!!

Lovely house just blocks from Forsyth Park. Very comfortable and perfect for our party of seven!

  • 5 of 5

We were there for the Rock and Roll Savannah marathon and this property was perfect for our needs. Carmen was a quick phone call away in case we needed anything, although the house was so well equipped we really didn’t need to call at all!! And the city of Savannah never disappoints ....beautiful town with beautiful people!!

The house is beautiful, looked just like the pictures. I could live there.

  • 5 of 5

The house is beautiful, walking distance to so much! Walked to the farmers market Saturday morning then went "home" to enjoy fresh fruit, great bread and cheese, all locally produced. Also got some local honey, and some coffee. It was "Wag-o-ween" and as we walked around town that day we saw so many dogs and so many varieties. Carmen and Jon had given us great suggestions for places to go. Didn't get to meet them in person but it was such a great place if I ever go back to Savannah would like to stay there again. When we weren't out and about we chilled on the patio which was cute and inviting.
