Rick was very welcome and explained everything we needed to know directly after our arrival. The room was clean and the location was very close to the park and downtown. Nevertheless, parking in front of the house was free. The description of the room was acurate and our needs were met. Thank you!
Ricks house is a great place to stay if you want to see Savannah! Our room was very cosy and clean. Had a TV, AC and fan. Nice and quite at night time. The area is very safe and has a good feel to it. It is located conveniently close to everything. It is a 1 mile walk down to the river front, the market streets and the historic district. A five minute walk to Forsyth Park. A nice Italian restaurant (Leoci's) on street behind. On the opposite side of the road of the house, try Mate Factor for breakfast, it is a nice little homemade bakery with all sorts of pastries (they have free from products as well). Rick was very helpful and gave us recommendations for breakfast, dinner and transport around Savnnah. He is a cool friendly guy and very laid back. You will have a great stay with him.
Rick's historic home was in a great location. We could easily walk anywhere in the historic district. The room was very comfortable and Rick was a friendly host. All of our needs were well met for a very reasonable price. Thank you, Rick.
Rick's home was perfectly located for my stay in Savannah. He graciously opened up his home to me though I was out most of the time enjoying Savannah with my son. He was also very unobtrusive while I was coming and going so I felt as though I had the house to myself.
Rick was very accommodating and present. The room was clean and comfortable. I loved the location, very close the park and all downtown attractions. I felt free to come and go I as pleased, and enjoyed my trip very much.
Rick was very welcoming. We arrived pretty late in the evening. We chatted for a bit and he had some maps and brochures of Savannah which were very helpful. He also recommended a few places to eat that night. The description of the room/house was accurate. The house was in a great location: supermarket 1 block away, Forsyth Park and coffee shop a few blocks away, and FREE downtown bus stop a block away. There was free parking right in front of the house! We walked most of the time, and when we got tired, we just hopped on the free downtown bus :-)
Thanks you Rick for letting us stay in your home while we explored Savannah!
