Christie was an excellent host - available for questions and to show us around when we arrived, but otherwise allowing us our privacy even though she does live in the house and has a business on the ground floor.
The room is lovely and the bathroom is over the top! We enjoyed the little balcony off the bathroom for coffee and breakfast as well as people (and car) watching, as it is above a busy street but right across from Forsyth Park. We loved walking everywhere - about a mile to the river along streets lined with lovely homes, monuments and big old trees dripping with Spanish moss. The only negatives are that room is a bit noisy with street sound, and it doesn't really have drawers or a usable closet, so it is hard to unpack. Friendly cat was in residence two of the three nights.
We would return if we ever have the good fortune to go back to Savannah!
This was truly the best way to stay in Savannah! Collat House is beautiful, and our room was gorgeous and luxurious feeling. Christie was friendly and very welcoming. There were other guests there but we didn't really see them, it felt like a hotel only a million times better. The only drawback is there a good bit of noise from the road and from the upstairs airbnb'ers. I'm a light sleeper is the only reason I noticed but it definitely wasn't a deal breaker with the beautiful view of the park. The cafe in the park also serves breakfast, coffee, snacks, and beer. It was about a fifteen minute walk to shops/restaurants but it's through parks and downtown so it was quite lovely; we grabbed a beer/coffee from the cafe and were there in no time. We will be staying here again and so should you!
Perfect location, beautiful room, loved the whole inn! Christie was super warm and accomodating---loved the 2 house cats and little dog too---and the room was great. Would definitely stay here again---a great place to just walk all over the city from. Loved it!
I cannot recommend this place highly enough. My fiancee and I came down for a Valentines day trip and stayed on the front room (the one with the tub and front deck overlooking the park). It was clean and comfortable, and while we spent little time there and much more out exploring Savannah, the time we did spend was absolutely wonderful. Christie herself was very nice and accommodating, and the pets were cute to boot.
We had a great stay in Christie's beautiful home. The room is lovely and comfortable, with a microwave, mini-fridge and toaster (Christie provided bread for toast and fresh fruit). She also provided shampoo, conditioner and body wash. There is a coffee maker in the room but Starbucks is less than a block away in the park if you can't be bothered. Christie consistently asked if we had everything we needed but was also very unobtrusive. We loved the friendly kitties and Emma, the dog. We loved being close enough to walk most anywhere downtown and the room has a lovely view of Forsythe Park. One thing to be aware of: the room faces Whitaker, which is a rather busy street and there is some road noise. We would stay here again!
We loved the accommodations. Every detail attended to. Very convenient from I-95, to River Street, and all the wonderful Savannah restaurants. Thank you, Christie.
Overall, our stay was wonderful. The room was clean and absolutely gorgeous! Our view of the park was relaxing and added to the experience. We were a little further from the main drag than we would have liked, but if you are up for walking it provides a great opportunity to see the beautiful town of Savannah. Also, we live in the country at home, and weren't used to the noises of the city or having people above us. Definitely glad that I brought the sound machine ! I would stay there again in a heartbeat, and would recommend it to others! We truly had a great time!
Christie's house is GORGEOUS, clean, and homey. She is so sweet and hospitable. We went for our first wedding anniversary trip and fell in love with our room. It was so beautiful and romantic. I would recommend Christie's house to anyone looking to enhance their stay in Savannah, whether you're celebrating an anniversary or going on a family vacation, her house accommodates all types of people!
Amazing New Year's Eve stay!!! Christie was so attentive from the moment i booked, giving us tips to where to eat & where to go. She answered my emails & texts very quickly. We then arrived and my sneaky mother had gotten in touch with her & managed for her to have champagne chilled for us. The room was so beautiful & romantic. Just what my boyfriend & I needed for that magical night. She helped us get around. Since we were only staying one night & arrived late the first day, I asked her if the next day we could check out later to enjoy our stay, she was so wonderful about it & told us to stay as late as we wanted. This really helped because we didnt have to rush so we enjoyed every bit of our stay. Thanks so much Christie! it was my first Airbnb experience and it wont be my last thanks to this experience. We will be back to Savannah and staying here again.
The location was great and the home is lovely. We were very comfortable.
