Welcome to Casa de la Ceiba!
This magical, eclectic retreat is only a 10min. drive from the historic district and 10min. from Tybee Beach! I've been hosting Airbnb from the very beginning, and it is my pleasure to share with you my spacious, yet quaint, nature-lovers paradise!
"He’s the kind of guy who can find something in common with just about everyone." -Seth Kugel New York Times.
The Pecan Room, is on the Southeast corner of the house. It features incredible morning light, and a very comfortable firm queen bed. The room opens up to the large upstairs back porch and hammock, making it one of the most relaxing room in the house. It also has a fullsize closet, a small desk, and a direct door to the upstairs bathroom.
Cool Air Conditioning & Fast Wifi
This house is perfect for people who enjoy relaxing in the hammock, listening to birds, feeling the sea breeze, and reading a good book :) If you would prefer blaring TVs, and convenience to the airport, this is not the place you will enjoy. I'm very easy-going and happy to share many fun activities:
**Bicycling -- I have a Tandem you can use!
**Kayaks & Canoeing -- Right here from the house, with a boat launch 2 houses away!
**I'm a Boat Captain -- For a small fee, I offer sunset sailboat rides and Remote Island exploring!
**Beautiful Running Trail -- Completely safe, high-end neighborhood.
The house has two guest rooms, sharing 1 very nice upstairs bathroom. You're more than welcomed to use the kitchen. I love having great conversation while making dinner or breakfast with new friends from around the world. There are many fun activities, and great eats in Savannah, and close to Mi Casa! I love being a host and sharing tips and ideas with my guests! I love to keep this house full of laughter and good vibes, this house is very peaceful and magical. I'm a traveler myself, and I love the opportunity to show this amazing city to other travelers enjoying the journey of life.
Interesting Facts of this House:
This is a beautiful tree house built in 1932, making it one of the oldest houses on Whitemarsh Island. This house has been recently remodeled to show off its original all-wood charm and keep you feeling like you are high up in the island forest.
**Next door to an Native American Mound
**Also next door to a civil war battery (there's a mote besides the driveway remaining)
You really need a car or motorcycle to stay here.

Max. 2 people per room.
Please no one under 18.

No smoking. it's 2014. Be kind to your body. :)
No pets. ( I love dogs, but I keep the house really clean for people who have allergies).
Be respectful of the age of the house and the tranquillity here.
Thanks for reading. you probably already knew all of this. and therefore is it intended for someone else. Please enjoy your day, you are a good person. :)
Jonathan was an entertaining and accommodating host. He had plenty of food and beverages to share as well as interesting stories. Loved hanging out on the porch with the hammock. The photos are very accurate.
The Pecan Room was very peaceful, quiet, clean and a lovely sanctuary from downtown Savannah. I loved the hammock outside! Jonathan is a very interesting and gracious, fun-loving guy! Without him my experience of Savannah would have been completely different. He takes he job as a host seriously and sincerely wants his guests to feel at home. It's hosts like Jonathan that makes me encourage others to do Airbnb. He's the post child for Airbnb. All hosts should take lessons from him.
My best friend and I live in different states and meet up each year for a week. This year we chose Savannah and stayed at Jonathan's the entire time. The place was fantastic! Tucked back in the Spanish moss in a quiet neighborhood just half a block from the river, it was like our own private home away from everything. From our morning coffee on the veranda to cooking dinners in the kitchen, it felt like the perfect place to start up and wind down our days. We were a short drive from the city center and, on the other side, the beach so we took our time getting up and around and still had full days to explore beautiful Savannah. Jonathan was a very welcoming host. He's easygoing, super friendly and had a lot of great suggestions for us. One night he took us out on the boat for a sunset sail (and we saw dolphins!) and another night he set up the telescope in the yard so we could look at the moon. He was cheerful and accommodating- a real southern gentleman! We are already planning a trip back. And next time we may not leave!!
Jonathon was very nice and gave suggestions for dining, which we really appreciated. It was away from the city yet close enough and only a short drive to Tybee Island where we spent a lovely day riding bikes on the beach and on the bike paths on the island.
The pictures didn't do the room justice! The space was absolutely beautiful. We stayed for St. Patrick's day and couldn't beat the location. We were close enough to the action but far enough to not be involved in all the chaos. Jonathan was warm and welcoming! I will definitely come back!
We had a great time, and the place was perfect for us! The house is in a peaceful, idyllic neighborhood surrounded by trees draped in Spanish moss, and it's a short, relaxed, low traffic drive to either downtown or the beach. Everything is exactly as described, and Jonathan was a great help! He gave us plenty of ideas for things to do, told crazy stories over breakfast, and pretty much just let us be. The room we stayed in has a direct door to the back porch and thus, the outside, which was lovely. We came and went and enjoyed the hammock and the early spring weather. I would definitely come back and stay again, as well as recommend the place to anyone who has perked their ears up upon reading the description. Everything is exactly as described - an ideal setting for a relaxing Savannah visit!
