My bf and I stayed with Christie on our way to the Golden Isles of Georgia. We stayed in the front room on the second floor, which was very beautiful and extremely comfortable. The Victorian Manson is very homey and superbly situated for sightseeing.
Excellent place to stay, great proximity for walking around Savannah and right on the beautiful Forsyth Park. Christie was a gem and made our stay very comfortable and enjoyable, making it possible for us to arrive fairly late in the evening. Cats were cute and friendly.
Great return visit. Always wonderfully warm and hospitable.
Extremely accommodating and an awesome location! I highly recommend this place for anyone staying in Savannah.
We visited Savannah to celebrate a few birthdays. The 3rd floor ballroom accommodated the six of us very well. Christie was a great host and the house was very inviting. The walk to Bay Street was not bad and Forsyth park across the street adds to the charm of this beautiful home. Overall the experience with airbnb and the host was exceptional!
We were looking for a charming place to stay as close as possible to the heart of historic Savannah, that would accommodate our family of six plus dog without breaking the bank. We found exactly what we were looking for and more! The house is well appointed, spacious and full of character, and is right on Forsyth Park. We enjoyed the cozy surroundings and the ability to just step outside and walk everywhere. Minutes from great shopping and dining. Christie and her family were also very welcoming and hospitable hosts. We'd go back in a heartbeat.
Gorgeous house right on Forsyth park. Third floor ballroom accommodations are way more than adequate....positively luxurious. Large space, beautifully decorated, and friendly, knowledgeable, helpful hosts!!! Will definitely return!
Fantastic stay with Christie in Savannah - incredibly hospitable and the best setup. We loved the fact that we could come and go without feeling that we were disturbing anyone.
Location is perfect for walking throughout the downtown historic district (great proximity to restaurants, parks, etc.).
Great space, gracious hosts. Great location right on Forsyth park. We really enjoyed our stay!
Great place to stay in Savannah. Christie was great and the home is lovely! Was even able to bring my dog! Close to restaurants and shops. Would recommend for a family or girls trip weekend getaway!
