I own a historic home on a beautiful, oak-canopied street in the up-and-coming Starland / Thomas Square area south of Forsyth Park. There is easy bike access to downtown, with bike lanes immediately adjacent, but there's also plenty to do within walking distance!

The space

My house is a wonderful place to hang out, with its cozy bedroom, chilled-out living room, sunny breakfast nook, and lazy front porch, but you are visiting Savannah to get out-and-about, right? In addition to quick access to the main Historic District, there are many cool spots to visit within my own up-and-coming part of town. Savannah's most awesome cafe, Foxy Loxy, is just a 5 minute walk away on Bull Street. The Starland District is also on the Bull Street corridor, a bit further south. Blowin' Smoke Cantina is a BBQ/Mexican fusion joint with amazing tacos (fish, pulled pork, etc) and more, just 3 blocks away (less than 5 minutes walk) and live music many nights. And then there is Green Truck Pub. Oh, Green Truck Pub - all locally sourced ingredients. Awesome salads, burgers, and a great beer selection. They even make their own ketchup! But don't take my word for it. Look up the recent New York Times profile titled "An Incubator for Creativity in Savannah, GA".

Guest access

Guests will have access to all of my living space with the exception of my own bedroom/office. This includes the kitchen, breakfast nook, living room, shared bathroom (all my things are kept out of sight, so it's very tidy), foyer, front porch, back yard, and off-street parking. My house actually contains two units. The one that I occupy is upstairs. The private downstairs unit has its own Airbnb listing titled "Private Unit near Thomas Square".

Interaction with guests

My degree of interaction with my guests is up to them! I am happy to provide advice on what to see and do. I have had several "tours of duty" in Savannah (as one friend phrased it in relation to herself). In my first, I worked in the nightlife industry downtown. In my second, I worked for SCAD as an international admission representative. Now in my third, having returned to Savannah after attaining two masters degrees from Georgia Tech, I am a freelance urban designer and entrepreneur. So, I have experienced Savannah from a variety of POVs, and I'm happy to share the insights (and stories) this has granted me. I typically work from home (or nearby cafes), so I will probably be in and out of the house, unless I'm out of town on a freelance contract somewhere else.

Other things to note

Off-street parking is provided behind the house, accessed from the alley.

Smoking is not allowed inside the house, but I'm ok with it on the front porch, as long as butts are properly disposed of and not thrown in the bushes or the yard! Bringing a pet is negotiable. I'll probably say no to mid-sized or large dogs, due to concerns for the hardwood floors. Small dogs and cats are probably ok, but I'd still like for the guest to bring a carrier/crate with them.

Pleasant place within walking distance of the two centre and the main bus tour terminus. Comfortable bed and easy parking. Just what we were looking for.

Jason has been a great host and provider of local information. The room was very comfortable and use of the laundry facilities much appreciated. The accommodation is within easy walking distance of the historic district, which is without doubt very beauitful. Travellers should know the house is close to a minor railway that sports one early morning train, but it didn't bother me greatly. Overall a very good experience.

I had a fantastic time at Jason's. The house is well-positioned and a leisurely stroll through Forsyth Park takes you into the heart of the historic district. The room itself is just as it appears in the website - so much more fun than a drab, cut-and-paste chain hotel. Jason is a fantastic host. He pointed out places to go, eat and drink and also invited me out and introduced me to his friends. As a lone traveller, this was a great opportunity to experience the city - great fun. All in all, heartily recommended!

Jason was a great host, he was easy and helpful, giving us great recommendations for things to do in Savannah, thanks especially for recommending the Crab Shack on Tybee Island. The use of bikes was great and we were able to see so much more of Savannah. The room was lovely, just as pictured, very comfy bed. A great host!

We had a great time in Savannah staying at Jason's apartment. The bed is comfortable and the room light. There is also a lovely sun-room with a coffee-maker which makes a good place to start the day. Jason is an excellent and friendly host who gave us great advice on the city and its attractions. He provided us with maps and listings magazines, and was on hand to tell us about the history of the city. The bicycles he offers - in good condition with helmets and locks - are a big bonus. We used them to get around the city and really enjoyed taking in the sights that way. The apartment is about a ten minute cycle from downtown but also has some good bars and restaurants walkable nearby. Overall a good experience with this airbnb-er.

We had a fantastic stay in Savannah. Jason was an awesome host and really went above and beyond to give us great information about the town and help us get the most out of Savannah. His apartment is extremely comfortable and nicely decorated, and we slept really well. We also loved the bikes - a fantastic addition to our stay.

Jason User ProfileJason is a superhost.

I'm a freelance designer (I have masters degrees in city planning and urban design), writer, and entrepreneur in Savannah, Georgia. I love this city and enjoy helping others to get to know it. I've done a ton of travelling in the past (about 70 countries by my count) but I've decided to put my roots down here, so that should say something about how great Savannah is!

I am now a scarred veteran of the wars over local regulation of short-term rentals, and I continue to fight (and actually hope to resolve things at the state level). So, due to local regulations that came into effect at the beginning of 2015, I can no longer freely use all of my home (an up/down duplex) as I see fit. However, I can still rent my extra upstairs bedroom. So, take a look and let me know if you'd like to be my temporary roommate. Cheers!
