Please read the entire listing description before booking. No refunds will be made in case guests cancel over information listed in the description because they failed to read!

My home is halfway between charming Historic Downtown Savannah and the fun beaches of Tybee Island, about 7 miles either way.

Nearby you will find grocery stores, pharmacies, bars and restaurants for your convenience, none of which are within walking distance.

On our tranquil neighborhood island, you can ride your bike or go on a stroll safely and secure, away from major traffic interference. Across the street is Turner's Creek, and the sunsets in the neighborhood are fantastic!

The house has a large front yard in a quiet street, so plenty of space for parking, and before you arrive, I'll send you instructions of how to get into the house at your convenience.

We are pleased to say this is a gay friendly, smoke-free, two-story, custom built home by one of the island's developers back in the 1970's, however, mostly remodeled recently. We live in this house, but list it on Airbnb when I go out of town.

In each bedroom there is a mini fridge to store your food and drinks (free of charge), and in the bathroom there's a Keurig coffee machine, so you can enjoy coffee at your convenience (I provide the condiments). Both bedrooms have TVs DirecTV for those rainy days; the twin bedroom can accommodate a third person (for a $25.00 added to the nightly price of this listing) on a air mattress, which I provide, in addition to all the linens and towels.

Wi-Fi is available throughout the property (free of charge).

Well behaved dogs (up to 25 lb.) are welcome (for a non refundable fee), however, you MUST let us know breed, weight, and if it sheds prior to finalizing your booking. Pets MUST be potty trained.

Pure or mixed husky, chow, or German shepherd are not allowed - or other breeds that shed profusely. These dogs are not permitted due to the amount of shedding they do. If you have one of these breeds, we reserve the right to have your reservation cancelled. It is very unfortunate we have to have these stipulations, but we have had serious issues with these breeds.

Non-heated pool and hot tub are available (for a fee) during your stay, after those long walks on the beach, and downtown Savannah.

Also downstairs is the Kitchen and Living Room, that also has DirecTV. If you plan to use the kitchen, you must bring your own food and drinks - I do not provide that. What is in the fridge, freezer, pantry and liquor cabinets is NOT for guest consumption.

There's a large grassy back yard, with a privacy fence, so you can enjoy your quiet time near the outdoor swimming pool and hot tub, However, please note, there is a Modern Day Carriage House on the back of the property and so there will be other Airbnb guests coming in and out of the back yard.

Some of the flowers and trees on property include: banana trees, palm trees, begonias, impatiens, lantana, bridal veil, Mexican heather, marigolds, snap dragons, petunias, gloxinias, african violets, tons of ferns, confederate jasmine, morning glories, mimosa tree, azaleas, gardenias, walking iris', hibiscus, dogwood, rose plants and confederate rose trees, to name a few; all of this on 1/2 acre.

The house has a large front yard in a quiet street, so plenty of space for parking, and once you reserve the rooms, you will receive a door code, that will let you in and out at your convenience, 24/7. There is only one car allowed to park in the driveway (up close to the garage) and the other vehicle must park on the curb.

Even though you're here as a guest in my rooms, you are more than welcome to make yourself at home.

Note: this is a two-story home, therefore it has stairs. It is not handicap accessible and not child proof. I apologize.

This house is as beautiful as stated in the description. Lots of room for gatherings and the beds was the most comfortable! My guest and I had a hard time leaving, we couldn't get enough of the house. Aside from the home itself, our Host- Andy and Steve, were so amazing. They are very quick to reply via phone, such Southern Hospitality, and helped us get to know the town a little bit better. Our host was kind enough to help us one day when I needed them, they drove to the house to bring in some dessert delivery that was left in the front porch to bring inside into the refrigerator because I was unable to come home. So very awesome of them!!! I highly recommend this house or ANY listings from this host.

From the moment of inquiry Steve was always quick to respond to any questions in a thorough & informed manner. He made us feel very confident about the process. When we arrived, Steve & his partner, Andy, arranged to be present to give us a tour & answer any final questions. Then they were off, as we rented the entire home and stayed there by ourselves. First of all, Steves description of his home was right on point. He did not under or over sell a thing. The neighborhood is beautiful & quiet. It also felt very safe. The house is wonderfully decorated. It is simple & modern but with a romantic knod to the Savannah of old. The home is kept exceptionally clean & clutter-free. It is definitely set up to make quests feel comfortable. We did not feel uncomfortable as if we were in someone else's space the whole time. There are laminated instructions throughout the house to aid with certain things such as the pool/jacuzzi, the coffee maker, & the shower. These were very welcome instructions & helpful. We had a blast enjoying the pool in a beautiful back yard. The yard feels very private from neighbors who are not extremely close to the property. During our stay, Steve and Andy offered to answer any questions during our stay and they did offer answers a couple of times during our stay, but always with a courteous & abliging manner. Overall I found our hosts very easy to get along with, polite, professional, and prepared. We enjoyed this experience very much and will definitely use AirBnB again, as well as stay at Steves beautiful charming home again if ever in the area again.

Steve User ProfileSteve is a superhost.

We are laid back, outgoing, and we like to bike, run, travel and have a libation! The island on which we live is nearly 5K when we run/bike around it.

Steve is a wedding officiant and Andy is an interior designer.

While you stay in our home, if you need suggestions on places to eat, places to go, and/or if you need directions, we will be more than happy to share those if you'd like - just let us know. We can tell you where the locals eat if you'd rather eat there than with other tourists.

Also, if you'd like, we would be more than happy to share with you some great stories about Savannah (and some of the people) that you won't hear on guided tours!
