Rick was an amazing host, a very warm and comfortable experience with both the home and city of Savannah. Rick was very historically and touristically knowledgable, accommodated to recommendations within our age-range and personal interests. Would definitely recommend him as a host!
Rick was a very knowledgable, friendly, and accommodating host. He was a wellspring of practical information regarding things to do in Savannah and surrounding areas. The room was clean and well stocked. We felt very welcome and at home during our stay at Rick's and would stay there again in the future.
Rick's place was clean, comfortable, and a great place to come "home" to between my meetings in Savannah. It's an easy (and beautiful) walk to everything you want to see in the city. As a host, Rick was responsive, polite, and unobtrusive. If you want to break out of the hotel norm and feel like a true local for a few days, this is the place to stay.
Rick was the consummate host -- gracious, helpful and an engaging conversationalist to boot! I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at his cozy home, which is ideally located to explore Savannah. He was also quite helpful with tips on getting around the city and restaurant recommendations. And to top it off, he makes a damn good peach pie!
Rick is a wonderful host - gave us useful information and a map on our arrival. He also had chocolate candies for his guests :) The house is centrally located and within just about 5 minutes of all the main hustle and bustle. There is also Kroger and a cute coffee shop right next to his house...
We had a great time in Savannah and really enjoyed your recommendations and conversation.
Thank you so much for opening your home to us.
Cheers and thank you
Dayton and Christa

About the Host, Rick
A regular guy. Easy going & laid back. Love to travel, read, & hike. A film buff for indies & foreign..Fluent in both Portuguese & Spanish. LGBT welcome.
My former life includes 20 years in NYC in a banking/finance career. Love the big city & all it offers, but also appreciate living on a smaller scale in a place like Savannah.
I try to get to Europe for a few weeks at least once a year & will gladly trade travel stories with other travel aficionados. After grad school, I bought a one way ticket & lived in Brasil for 2 years; working as an english teacher & living with brazilian students in a pension. Also traveled to Argentina, Paraguay, & Uruguay during that time...
