In order to respect your neighbors we ask for 'quiet hours' after 9 pm. This simply means refrain from shouting, loud music, etc. Remember when you are on the porches and in the courtyard you can be heard very well by the surrounding residents. Thank you for your respect and understanding.

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 in 2015 to now be part of 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 2001

Why Jon and Carmen chose Historic District - South

This was our home for many years. While in the comfort of our home, we would open the blinds, peer out, and know we were apart of that 'special something' that Savannah is so known for. Out our windows is an amazing vantage point of the surrounding Victorian homes and with the raising of an out of character structure two years ago, our home has reclaimed a distant view of Forsyth Park fountain as well... Amazing!

We not only chose this property for it's beauty and location, but for the lifestyle it offered. We loved leaving the cars parked in our private parking area and walking anywhere downtown. It's close proximity to the grocery store and Forsyth Park (not only a tourist mecca, but a thriving social venue for locals to enjoy the great outdoors) makes the home an ideal, not-so off the beaten path, choice to experience Savannah for yourself.

What makes this townhome unique

The size of this house will allow a larger group of friends and family 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

Gorgeous! The whole vibe of this joint is great!! We felt instantly at home and the decorations were the cherry on top! Thanks for sharing this lovely part of Georgia with us. We will remember it FOREVER.

great place

  • 5 of 5

We loved this place. We parked our car on Friday afternoon and never touched it again until we left on Sunday - everything is so close and walkable - such a great location. And a wonderful city. House was clean and had everything we needed for a great stay!

Wonderful Family Stay!

  • 5 of 5

The stay was fantastic! We stayed there with my parents and children 16 & 13 over Spring Break. There was plenty of room, comfortable beds and enjoyed the backyard BBQ area. Carmen made us feel welcome right from the start and provided recommendations on places to visit. Would definitely stay there again.

Idyllic Girls' Weekend

  • 5 of 5

My daughter, a friend, and I just had the pleasure of spending a long weekend at Jon and Carmen's beautiful home in the historic district of Savannah. From the moment we entered the property, we felt at home. The home is beautifully appointed and is literally only a 4-block walk from Forsyth Park. Carmen made some wonderful recommendations for dining while we were there, including the Crystal Beer Parlor. That was one of my favorites! We also ventured over to Skidaway Island where we enjoyed Sunday brunch at the Driftaway Cafe followed by a visit to the Wormsloe Estate. Vic's on the River was another favorite dining spot. Savannah is a wonderful walking city and we did plenty of that, but we also enjoyed our private courtyard in back of the home where we had our daily cocktail hours. I would rent this property again in a skinny minute. Absolutely fabulous!

Southern Hospitality at its best!

  • 5 of 5

Carmen made the beautiful Victorian home so welcoming with her special touch of southern hospitality. The accommodations were very comfortable. The location was perfect, close enough to walk to the neighborhood grocery or downtown with the convenience of a trolly or DOT bus pick up within a couple of blocks. So glad we chose this Victorian Gem!

Loved this place!

  • 5 of 5

We just left today, and there is so much to say. The townhouse is beautiful and beautifully appointed. Beds were very comfy. Outside Garden was beautiful and 2 parking spaces in historical Savannah is rare. Owners were very attentive and left us fresh flowers. The house was immaculately clean, and decorated with beautiful furniture and linens. We could not have asked for more. I lived in Savannah for a year in Med school almost 20 years ago, and I cannot get over what a walking city Savannah has become. Clary’s for breakfast is close by. We went to the Farmers Market in nearby Forsyth Park on Saturday am. We walked daily to downtown, which is easy if you like to walk and want to enjoy the Savannah experience. Downtown is anywhere from ½ a mile to 1 ½ miles depending on where you go. You can certainly drive. Parking in downtown Savannah can be challenging. I would recommend walking west as soon as you can to Bull Street and enjoy the shops and squares north until you reach your destination. We would rent this townhome again in a heartbeat.

Nestled in the southeastern corner of the Landmark Historic District, our home is close enough to the action to walk everywhere downtown, or bring your car and spoil yourself with our two private off-street parking spaces to come and go as you please.

Forsyth Park and the iconic, picturesque Forsyth Park Fountain is quite literally straight out our front door. Enjoy a morning or afternoon stroll around Forsyth Park's lush urban forest, grab a cup of coffee, beverage, or bite to eat at the Forsyth Park cafe, or rest on a park bench while the kids play on the playground all within a few short blocks out the front door. Don't forget the grocery store is just 2 blocks away or set aside time on a Saturday morning for the weekly Farmer's Market at Forsyth Park!
