The house is amazing! If you are looking for an authentic way to see Savannah this is a great way to experience it. The house is in one of the historic parks and is walking distance to all the fun things in Savannah.
Christie is a pro at hosting. The room was very clean, had its own coffee station, tv, and an amazing balcony that gives a partial view of Forsyth Park. She is very friendly and gives great advice on places to go and things to do.
Christie's house is amazing! Staying here was a great chance to peek inside a beautiful historic home. The house is right across the street from Forsyth Park, and has an adorable balcony that's perfect for morning coffee & people watching. We HIGHLY recommend this location!
Christie was out of town but her business partner, Natalia, saw to our needs.
The house was beautiful and we would have enjoyed being there but my husband was ill from the time we came until the time we left. We spent almost all our visit in the bedroom. Luckily it was a beautiful room with a lovely bathroom.
AMAZING! This place is incredible. It's much bigger than it looks and the quality is very very high. This is such a beautiful home and Christie was an incredible host. We had zero problems and the communication was great. Christie went out of her way to help up and we appreciate her a lot.
I can't say enough how amazing this home is. The bedroom is great and the bathroom is spectacular. Def worth the price of admission. You will not regret staying here. A+++++
Christie was very accommodating. The room was clean and spacious. The bed was very comfortable. Christie gave us recommendations of where to eat (Soho South, which was very good) and responded immediately when we contacted her via phone/email. Everything in town was less than a mile away. We were able to walk everywhere. If I were to come back to Savannah, I would stay again here.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Forsyth Park house. Christie was easy to communicate with and helpful. The house is beautiful, clean, and very convenient to the historic downtown area (you will have to walk about 10-15 minutes to get into the heart of town--add another 5 if you're going all the way to the waterfront). Forsyth Park is a beautiful place too.
Great house right on the park! The room, balcony and bathroom were all great. In walking distance of down town... would stay again!

Hi! Traveling, music, and the ocean are three things that are near and dear to my heart. It is a blessing to live in such a beautiful city that is great to come home to, and I love sharing our little corner of Savannah with our guests. As a host, I use "the Golden Rule" and try to create an environment that I would want to be in as a guest. Cleanliness and comfort (i.e. nice towels and sheets) are always a priority. We are very flexible and do what we can to make each guest's stay as nice as possible and to make everyone feel at home.
