Savannah, the oldest city in the USA’s state of Georgia, is home to an enormous amount of historical attractions. As one of the most strategic port cities in the American Revolution, it’s inevitable that the past left its mark on this place. On its impressive list of attractions is the birthplace of the founder of the Girl Scouts (Juliette Gordon Low), the First African Baptist Church, and the oldest standing antebellum rail facility in the USA, the Georgia Railway roundhouse complex. To top all of that off, the downtown district is one of the United States largest National Historic Landmark Districts.
Naturally, these sites attract thousands of visitors a year, eager to experience the richness of Savannah themselves. But, of course, with such an array of attractions, you need somewhere to stay that matches the mood while providing a great base for you to explore the city from. Here are the best HomeAway and Vrbo vacation rentals with that cool vintage vibe, in convenient locations, and from across the price range.
This lovely listing, complete with warm redwood floors, is a gem in a killer location. Get ready for the day’s adventures and experiences in the spacious common room; it has all the plush cushions you need to make sure this stay feels like home. Take care of your itinerary with speedy Wi-Fi, and step out of the door to find yourself just across from one of Georgia’s most iconic parks, Forsyth Park, which has played a role in many a historical event and movie. The room doesn’t skimp out comfort and decor either, if anything, it looks even more old-time-like with its many paintings, flowery prints, and a nice toasty fireplace. This is just one of three bedrooms. Each is equally as comfy and similarly themed. Freshen up in clean, airy bathrooms adorably themed in faded turquoise; the surrounding scenery of green trees and time-tested monuments are sure to delight you every morning. Some days you really just don’t want to do much. Relax on the comfortable airy patio that looks out to the greenery in the area. If you change your mind though and you want to head out and see some cool things nearby, this is in a top location.

Nestled in a charming, unassuming townhouse shrouded with creepers and covered with tall windows, you’ll find a HomeAway with a great mix of vintage decor and elements and modern off-balance styling. The living room features a quirky bicycle on a wall in an off-balance and nearly precarious position. This quirky placement lends this HomeAway a very fun and creative image. The third bedroom has a full bed and a balcony overlooking the courtyard. The house also has two other bedrooms; the master bedroom comes with a fireplace while the second bedroom comes with a book shelf. The courtyard is a charming private space that, surrounded by stairs and wooden pillars, has a very rustic secret-garden feel to it. Plan out your trips here, which you’ll have to do quite a bit of, since this house is near to so many of Savannah’s most famous attractions, including all 22 of the city’s downtown squares.

This romantic selection looks as though it jumped right out of a novel where the main character meets a merchant’s handsome son or pretty daughter while on holiday in Savannah. The design, decoration, and furniture sure set the mood for love. This luxurious house, dating as far back as 1790, sleeps 10 and is mostly in its original form. This living room will make you feel like you’ve stepped into a different era. This period-accurate restoration of a formal dining area will delight any history buff, Gothic novel enthusiast, or writer looking for inspiration. Can you imagine the kind of stories you’ll be inspired to come up with here? Anything from two lovers flirting across the bouquet to hands joined around the circle in a spine-chilling seance. The second bedroom, with twin canopy beds, has a balcony and a private bathroom. There are 3 other bedrooms, all with their own private bathrooms. The master bedroom’s bathroom has a luxurious jetted tub and a hand-painted mural. With so many amenities and places to sleep, this house is perfect for a family getaway or a break with a group of friends. If 10 sleepers are not enough combine it with the Washington Square Carriage House (another listing from the same owner) to sleep 14 people.

This HomeAway has been affectionately dubbed the “Wedding Cake Mansion” due to the ornate white decorations around its windows, resembling the swirls of cream and ribbon on a wedding cake. It’s the jewel of Monterey Square, an area made famous by the bestselling account, ‘Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil’, but what really takes the cake is the opulent nature of its interior decor. Some say it’s the most photographed house in the city, and this dining room, complete in all its chandelier-lit splendour, should be reason enough why. The living room has another beautiful chandelier, exquisite gilded couches, and beautiful classic paintings. And it’s all with a grand helping of antiques that you definitely don’t want to drop. There are so many details to the decor of this luxurious bedroom, and such care has been taken to make it accurate to the time period, that you could spend an entire day just looking at everything. We imagine this might even be good place for film crews who are looking for a location for a short period drama. This bath area just takes your breath away, and the closest thing you can compare it to is a scene right out of The Great Gatsby. But considering you can bring your whole family to this 20-sleeper house, no tragedy will ensue! With a rating of 4.9 out of 5, this place will attend to all of your needs and take you on that once-in-a-lifetime stay of luxury.

Savannah, to be savoured slowly
Savannah’s charm lies in the details and the stories surrounding its historical sites. Take the First Bryan Baptist Church, for example, which is actually the oldest parcel of real estate owned continuously by black people in the whole of the United States. With these HomeAway vacation rentals, most just walking distance from the best sights around the city, you will be sure to spend a few days soaking up the atmosphere and knowledge that Savannah has to offer.
