The space

Old World Grace and Modern Convenience
Your breath will catch as you enter. This gorgeous space feels like you’ve stepped into the pages of a design magazine. With exceptional attention to detail, the beautiful restoration blends old world grace and modern convenience. The original heart pine floors gleam, the modern kitchen and bathrooms glow, and the 12-foot ceilings frame it all. To create this perfect blend of old Savannah charm and a modern designer's touch, all of the furnishings and art were sourced locally and thoughtfully in Savannah.

In the foyer is a roll-top desk where you can check email. The gracious and welcoming living room boasts a 12-foot ceiling and an antique Italian chandelier. Every corner of this room is a feast for the eyes. There is a comfortable sofa and chairs, reading lamps, and a 50-inch high definition TV. The living room flows easily into the huge eat-in kitchen with a round farm table at its center. It is a perfect place to gather with friends and family to cook a great meal. We supply coffee (Free Trade Organic), teas, spices and oils to save you time and money.

The library, with its cozy day bed, is tucked off the kitchen and is a great place to slip away to curl up with a book or take a nap. Here you will find another desk as well as our lending library. The laundry room features a full-sized washer and dryer and an iron and board.

The sleeping quarters are down the hallway from the main living area. Each bedroom has its own full bath directly across the hall from it. One bedroom has a comfortable king bed, nightstands, large dresser and a wardrobe. The second has a comfortable queen bed, nightstands, a dresser, and a small wardrobe. Both bathrooms are gorgeously tiled and filled with an assortment of personal care products including a hair dryer. One bath has a full-sized shower and the second has an original cast iron tub and shower. Quality bed linens and towels are provided, along with soaps, shampoo and conditioner. You'll also find a white-noise sound machine in each bedroom. The just-installed heating and cooling system will keep you comfortable no matter what the weather brings.

Reach your private deck through the back of the suite. With a table for six and direct access to the incredible courtyard, this is a perfect place to dine al fresco, enjoy your morning coffee, or sip sweet tea or wine in the afternoon. If you're feeling social, simply step off your deck into the lush tropical oasis that is the shared courtyard.

For your entertainment, enjoy WIFI, cable TV with 70 channels, as well as an Amazon Fire TV Stick featuring Netflix and Amazon Video. For music, you can choose Pandora on the Amazon Fire TV Stick or the Amazon Echo for effortless music streaming. Simply say "Echo, play jazz" (or your favorite selection) and the music will play.

We use Seventh Generation cleaning products and choose fragrance-free whenever possible. 0.5% of the purchase price of the personal care and cleaning products is donated to the Savannah Children's Theatre through (URL HIDDEN)

Two Outdoor Living Rooms
Gather with friends on the graceful front porch under the glow of the gas lanterns. Each walk-up porch offers seating for six and recessed lighting adds to a warm glow to the gas lamps.

Delight in the rear courtyard, our crown jewel. This tropical oasis is ideal for morning coffee, afternoon cocktails, dining al fresco, and enjoying the warm Savannah nights in a gently-lit dream garden.

The fenced and secure courtyard is shared by all of the guests of The Suites at Forsyth* and was designed to be experienced both communally and privately. The center is a large patio where you can gather with family, friends and meet other guests. If you desire a private experience, then slip into one of the four sheltered spaces that nestle at the periphery of the courtyard. These four ‘rooms’ are tucked into the foliage; each with vintage outdoor chairs and tables. The lovely lighting, lush landscaping, and splashing water from the fountain will make the courtyard your favorite place in Savannah--your ‘outdoor living room’.

*The Suites at Forsyth consist of six private residences within two historic, attached homes. We’re confident you’ll fall in love with our 1870's townhouses just like we did! We are two sets of friends who fulfilled a long-held desire to renovate a beautiful structure in one of Savannah's historic districts. The year-long restoration was completed in November 2016.

The Garden Suite was absolutely perfect for our weekend in Savannah. Check in was easy and the property itself was wonderful. It was extremely clean, comfortably outfitted with everything we could have needed and perfectly located. It was awesome being right next to the park and a short walk from the downtown district. Such a beautiful city and easily the nicest AirBnB I’ve had the pleasure of staying at!

This is the first time we tried Airbnb. I wasn't quite sure what to expect, but I must say that I was pleasantly surprised. Our Garden Suite exceeded all expectations, and was perfect for our romantic getaway! The decor and ambiance was both comfortable and pleasing. It had several thoughtful touches to it that made it feel like home. The garden courtyard what's your favorite spot for enjoying our morning coffee, breakfast and intimate conversations. It had various private nooks to sit and enjoy a leisurely morning. It was such a rated right across from Forsyth Park which provided wonderful walking paths along shaded sidewalks covered by old Live Oak trees and streets lined with beautiful historic buildings and homes. Janet, our host was most helpful and very responsive. She provided wonderful recommendations for a local florist where I ordered a bouquet for the room and suggested several restaurants, which were wonderful also. The Local Ten-11 was our favorite. I also sent a box with a gift I had of time to be staged for my sweetheart to find upon entering the room. That got me lots of points. Thank you Janet! We would certainly consider staying there again should we return to Savannah. I would highly recommend this fabulous and romantic property for your next romantic get away or comfortable family vacation. We are very grateful to Janice for making such a terrific property available. I give it five stars! Hats off to the Airbnb organization for a wonderful first experience.

Both the home and our experience with Janet were delightful. The house is large, clean, and just steps from Forsyth Park. The outdoor space beautiful. And during our entire stay, Janet was in touch to see if we needed anything. What a great home and host.

Absolutely loved the house! Pictures do not do it justice. Recently upgraded with all the amenities of home and more. Little bit of a walk downtown but so much to see on the walk made it worth while. Highly recommend this house - Janet was great as well!!
