Brimming with Southern hospitality, Savannah is known as the “Hostess City of the South.” From bustling River Street to historic Forsyth Park, there’s plenty to see and do in the oldest city in Georgia. Stay amongst cobblestone squares and live oaks dripping with Spanish moss in one of these charming vacation rentals in Savannah’s Historic District.

Conveniently located downtown between four of Savannah’s renowned squares, this Vrbo is right by all of Savannah’s hottest shops, clubs, restaurants, and bars. Both River Street and the City Market are within walking distance.
Apartment With Heated Pool
Centrally located just steps away from Madison Square in historic downtown Savannah, this spacious garden apartment has room for up to four guests. River Street and Forsyth Park are both just half a mile away. Bonus: There’s a shared heated swimming pool on the property!
Historic John Starr 1892 Home
Stay in a little piece of history. According to the plaque affixed by the door, this house was built for John Starr, an African American tugboat captain in the Port of Savannah in 1892.
This pet-friendly property has a private courtyard for your pooch. It’s close to everything, but far enough away from all the crowds. No parking is provided, but non-metered street parking is available.
Located on busy Broughton Street, this studio is just a stone’s throw away from shopping, restaurants, River and Bay Street, and more. It does have an elevator, but parking is not included. However, there is a parking garage nearby.
Located on Trustees’ Garden between Savannah’s Historic District and the newly built Eastern Wharf mixed-use community, this townhouse is just a few steps from River Street. The luxury condo — situated in a structure that dates back to 1857 — features high-end finishes such as Viking appliances, Carrera marble countertops, gas lanterns, heart pine flooring, arched openings, and private courtyards. One private off-street covered parking space is provided, while additional metered parking is available on a first-come, first-serve basis.
Jones Street Penthouse
Stairs seem to be a theme in downtown Savannah. Located on the top floor of a gorgeous historic brick building on Jones Street, this rental is only suitable for those who can handle steep stairs as there is no elevator. But, once you make it up to the peaceful third-floor penthouse, you can enjoy its gorgeous views. There’s a private back door, but front door access is shared via the foyer. Private parking is provided for one car while free street parking is available for a second vehicle.
Speaking of third-floor walkups, this lovely townhome doesn’t have an elevator either. It does, however, have a prime downtown location and is just a couple of blocks from Forsyth Park. Plenty of parking on and off the street is available. A deck and front porch swing offer space to enjoy the outdoors.
Broughton Street Loft
Speaking of being in the center of the action, this 1860s loft is situated on historic Broughton Street in the center of four of Savannah’s famous squares: Ellis, Telfair, Johnson, and Wright. All of the city’s most popular attractions, including River Street, City Market, Forsyth Park, St. John the Baptist, the SCAD buildings, and several incredible restaurants and cafés, are all just steps away.
Amazing access to the heart of downtown does mean there is some noise. Also, note that this loft is above the Savannah Bee Company on the top floor of a third-floor walkup, so visitors should be prepared to haul their luggage up a few flights of stairs.
River Street Condo
Want to be in the middle of the action? Located in the heart of Savannah’s Historic District, this charming two-bedroom, two-bath’s balcony overlooks River Street, so you can watch ships come into port as you sip your morning coffee. One parking spot is provided.
Forsyth Park Victorian Mansion
Coming with a crowd? Nestled among the Historic District’s live oaks and Spanish moss, this grand three-story Victorian offers nearly 5,000 square feet for your group. Between the main house and the coach house, this vacation rental can accommodate up to 14 guests.
Plenty of porches and balconies offer a place to sit outside. Enjoy a cocktail on the veranda overlooking Forsyth Park or grill up some grub in the private courtyard. Highlights include a pool table, projection screen, and complimentary concierge service to arrange activities such as tours, spa days, and golf outings. Downtown restaurants, boutiques, nightlife, museums, and historic landmarks are all within a 10-15 minute walk.
Jones Street Corner Cottage
Although the listing calls it a “cottage,” this Vrbo obviously had a former life as a commercial building. It has been repurposed into a well-equipped vacation rental with a cute little courtyard patio. Situated on Jones Street, the one-bedroom, one-bath is within walking distance of several points of interest, including River Street, Forsyth Park, and City Market.
