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, a vintage camper, 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 brand new pillow top queen-size bed, period antiques, 32" flat-screen TV and lot of charm. The bathroom is shared with a full tub and waterfall sink. Usually only one set of guests is using it. 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 their 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.

Guest access

Guests have access to treehouse, bicycles, golf cart, chiminea, kayaks, hammock, and all shared spaces. The only room that requires permission to view is my office at the top of the stairs to the left.

Interaction with guests

I will usually greet and chat a little, but I like to give you your space. I usually spend time in my upstairs office. You may see Josh, my roommate who shares the space, wondering about as well.

Other things to note

PARKING! There is a space available on either side of the front yard. Whichever is open is for you. There is space for one car. If you happen to have two, or if you have an oversized vehicle then you can park on Mechanics Avenue. Go to the stop sign, take a right, and look to your left. You will see a white building with blue trim. You can park there. Under no circumstances should you ever park on Bonaventure Road. You will be towed immediately.

This house is ridiculously charming & fun! We stayed as part of a mother/daughter trip to celebrate graduation and it was such a fun little "extra" to our trip! Don't miss the treehouse!

As beautiful as the pictures are, they don't do Chad's house justice. I think we spent more time taking the house, and all its detail, in more than we did Savannah. It was such a magical and peaceful place. Thanks so much to Josh for making our stay that much more enjoyable - so kind and super helpful with what to see around town. The cats were absolute sweethearts as well!

Loved the area & house. The positive reviews praising the wonderfully eclectic nature of the house are accurate. Great amenities (bed great) and comfort amongst a fantastic chilled hip literary Southern vibe. So many spots to sit and read/have a drink/a chat etc that it was hard to want to go out! We loved the laid back nature of the neighborhood while still have some good a couple of good eating options within walking distance & more within 5-10 min drive

This home is very eclectic and inviting. There are new discoveries to be found every morning. It is positioned conveniently near both Savannah, Tybee Island and some of the best oysters you've ever tasted. Spending time in the treehouse was an amazingly relaxing part of our trip. I would definitely recommend visiting and hope to come back again someday.

I loved this place. If you are into ecletic, so will you. Clean and quiet. Unless you are in great shape, though, forget about getting up in the treehouse. Was there for a convention, but would love to go back just to relax. Discovered that Chad wrote a book about his childhood, which I purchased, and that explains some things about the house décor. Two sweet cats that kept us company the short time we were there, but, don't worry, they seem to know cat people from non-cat people and won't bother you if you are of the latter. Would definitely go back!

Must visit!! You will not regret it. There is so much to look at in the home itself and it is the perfect distance from downtown Savannah. A home away from home, I never wanted to leave.

Chad User ProfileChad is a superhost.

I am a writer and a carpenter. I teach at a local university and publish poetry and memoir. I live on site with two cats. I really dig my record collection and creating fascinating peter-pan spaces all around the home. I have a roommate that 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."
