The Space

Right outside of historic Savannah in a fishing village on the Intracoastal Waterway rests Diamond Oaks, a 1903 Cottage Style home. Located on famous Bonaventure Road, half a mile from Bonaventure Cemetery. Wifi, digital cable, parking, 4 porches, a treehouse, and more in what many say is their "favorite house in Savannah" Weekly and Monthly Rates available too. You can use my kayaks and bicycles, have a fire in the backyard, or maybe even grill something. Pick up some shrimp off the boats for 5 bucks a pound, or use the casting net and catch your own. I am flexible! We now have a Whole Foods a mile away so the breakfast includes mostly organic food and drink. The Parlor Room features a double-bed, period antiques, flat-screen TV and lot of charm. The bathroom is shared with a full tub and waterfall sink. If you want a private bathroom, consider the Skylight Suite.
Since the treehouse is open to the elements, it is not rented on its own, rather all guests have free access to it. Guests in the Skylight Suite have priority simply because privacy is compromised briefly by the ladder due to the skylights. That said, Parlor Room guests simply have to check with guests upstairs (if there are any) and everyone has always worked it out so all can enjoy and experience the treehouse. Have a discounted massage or Fairy Card reading in the treehouse! And if you are really bold and the weather is right, you can sleep in it! But above all, the best way to learn about this home is to read the reviews on both rooms. To date, it has been featured in Savannah Magazine, Glamour, and forthcoming in Country Living.

  • Chad's house is as magical as promised. The 2 cats that wander the house are a plus if you enjoy the company of pets. Staying in this house truly felt like stepping into a summer home of my own. I didn't get a chance to meet Chad, but I would've loved to hear his inspiration behind the house decor - it's all very unique and creative!

    My only concern is regarding communication with the host. Although check-in was very smooth, I had questions that I texted/messaged to Chad prior to my arrival. However, I never received a response from Chad - this made me a little worrisome about checking in for my reservation.

    Overall, it was a great experience and would gladly stay here again.

  • This was a great experience! Chad's Home is absolutely beautiful... I am so glad we got to see this side of Savannah. I dont think I have ever felt so comfortable (email hidden) so quickly chad (email hidden) everything was perfect.

  • Chad's place is great. We spent a good amount of time just walking around and exploring the house and all it's unique decor, etc. The treehouse is absolutely amazing.

    We booked the parlor room in hopes of perhaps staying in the treehouse if the weather permitted, but we were informed that the treehouse was for the other room, so keep that in mind when booking the parlor room. Also, the tree house needs some clean up and maintenance - it wasn't exactly in a useable state. But it was so awesome just to climb up there and hang out for a few minutes. It's higher than we expected, which made it so much cooler!

    Overall, this was great experience! We didn't get to meet Chad, but he seems like a very cool individual that would be a blast to trade life stories with! I most definitely recommend this for anyone interested in what seems to be the most unique place in savannah!

  • My mom and I really enjoyed our stay at Chad's place in the Parlor Room. The house is quite amazing and the host, Robert, was very accommodating. We felt very comfortable in the home and felt like we had the whole place to ourselves. The house is located perfectly in Savannah just a about 15 min from the beach and 10 min from downtown. We took advantage of the bikes and explored Bonaventure cemetery. I have already started planning my next trip to Savannah with my husband and we plan to stay in the Skylight Suite. I am so glad I found this gem. Looking forward to our next visit!

  • Wonderful and homey place to stay! Just a few miles out of downtown but very easy to get to. The place is crafted and decorated in such a unique and fun way! Very much enjoyed my time there!

    June 2014
  • Everything was very easy... communication, arrival, breakfast, departure. The place is charming, my girlfriend and I had a wonderful time in this peaceful place. Very good and safe neighborhood, we used the bikes available to visit the city.

  • Great location, convenient to Tybee Island for some beach time as well as Downtown Savannah for some nightlife! The house was uber-charming and comfortable, so much so that we thought we would just be like Robert and stay permanently! (Just kidding!)

  • Ohhh, (email hidden) to spend some days in the Southern spirit of Savannah. We stayed four nights in the parlor room and can only recommend this unique place to anybody looking for an individual accommodation and a generous and welcoming host. Chad and Robert give you the feeling you were 100% part of this ferry tale home. We even were allowed to use the BBQ and cook our own meals. Thanks for this perfect holiday retreat. I should better delete this message and keep the place as a secret for myself. ;-) But I wish Chad all the best for his BnB and so have to say thank you in the public.

    Cheers from Nicole and Lutz

  • If you're heading to Savannah staying with Chad at the Diamond Oaks treehouse is an absolute must! The house itself is gorgeous and super kooky. The two cats were extremely friendly. The nicest thing about staying here was Chad and his housemate. They both took the time to give us extensive recommendations for things to do in Savannah and the surrounding area. Overall, a very unique experience, staying with interesting and engaging people.

About
I am a writer and a carpenter. I teach (email hidden) and publish poetry and memoir. I live alone in the main house with two cats. I really dig my record collection and creating fascinating peter-pan spaces all around the home. I have a roommate that lives in the carriage house and manages the home when I am gone. I am very clean and flexible. If you want someone to show you around and introduce you to a fascinating community of artists, I can do that. If you want to be left alone and have your own peace, I can do that. More personal and professional information about me can be (email hidden). My motto would be "keep on keeping on."
