The following is taken from the Savannah Visitors Center self- guided walking tour. Our house is the first stop on the tour!

-We begin our tour at the Visitors Center on MLK (1) and head East on Liberty Street to the corner of Liberty and Barnard. Across the street on the Southwest corner sits the Bird-Baldwin House (2). It is the oldest building in the city south of Liberty St. The original wood portion (left) was constructed in 1838. The floor plan, typical of most construction at the time, had a wide entrance hall with double parlors. The parlor floor was raised to permit maximum air through the house. Mr. Lewis Bird, a prominent Attorney began the original construction, but before it was completed the entire Bird family perished on the Steamship Pulaski when it exploded off the coast of North Carolina. (just to make things a little more interesting the closest square to the house is Pulaski Square!)

Mr. Birds mother completed the house and sold it to his law partner Mr. Baldwin who lived in it for many years. The stucco portion was added in 1860. The house was used by General Shermans officers as their headquarters. Over the years the house has been a private residence, an apartment building, a store and a corner tavern known as Harrys.

It had deteriorated so badly that street people were living in it and it caught fire several times yet the house survived. After sitting vacant for many years, in 1980 it was renovated into six apartments. In 1991 it became a Bed & Breakfast. A couple of years ago it was converted into condominiums.'

Our condos are a wonderful example of Savannah architecture and living. They are located at 201 West Liberty Street (at the intersection of Barnard and Liberty Streets and just one block West of the geographic center of the Historic District and are available for both short-term and long-term rental. Each 1000 square foot- non smoking - condo rental is located on the third floor (walk up) with no guests above you for additional privacy.

Our Savannah condos offer soaring ceilings and Savannah heart pine flooring. Large windows offer a great view and lots of light but also privacy since the units are on the third floor. Each has a large private bath with Jacuzzi jetted tub which is great after long walks in one of Americas Most Walkable Cities. Each has a fully furnished kitchen (with combo microwave/convection oven and separate cooktop) which gives you the opportunity to cook your own meals or take advantage of several wonderful restaurants in the immediate area. Each unit is non smoking and offers one king size bed and one pull out sofa. Wireless High Speed Internet is also available.

The Bird Baldwin House is a short walk from the Savannah Visitors Center where you can pick up a guided tour trolley or learn more about the activities Savannah has to offer. One complimentary off street - onsite parking is included in your rental. These cozy condos offer all you need for a couple of days or a couple of months. Live like a true Savannahian... If only for a short while!

Both condos are located at the corner of West Liberty Street and Barnard Street. Orleans Square is one block South and Pulaski Square is 1/2 block North. They are located close to SCAD student dorms on Oglethorpe and are directly across from the Savannah Civic Center, the site of SCAD graduation. Great for visits from SCAD parents!

The condos are furnished with all bed linens and bath terry. They are also stocked with extra pillows and blankets. We always take in to account the number of guests and length of stay and try to leave plenty of bath terry & linen. Please notify us when making your reservation if you plan to use the pullout sofa. Of course we ask that you reuse bath terry whenever possible. We are unable to provide daily linen & terry service. For extended stays we will drop off clean bath terry and pick up soiled terry. Due to such a wide variety of personal preference, we are unable to provide personal hygiene items like face soap, bath soap, shampoo or conditioner. Please bring these items with you.

These condo units are locally owned and operated. When you call or email for information you are speaking with the owners, not a management company who oversees hundreds of units. We are in these units between each guest visit to ensure that they are clean and well maintained. When we have family and friends visit Savannah, they stay here.

We have over 35 years combined hospitality experience. We spent over a year looking for a condo that offered all the key touchpoints that we know, from experience, visitors to Savannah need and expect. A great location that is easy to find for first time visitors (we are less than two blocks west of the geographic center of the Historic District), off street parking, a historically significant building (built in 1838), original doors and heart pine flooring, comfortable furnishings including a large king bed with high-end mattress and box spring (no thin worn out mattresses), a very large jacuzzi and a fully equipped kitchen with all utensils and pots and pans. Each unit has a coffee maker but we do not provide filters or coffee. Those items can be purchased locally. These are truly great condo units available at very competitive rates.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: Stephanie and I both grew up in Alabama. She is from Fairhope and I am from Anniston. We met at and graduated from Auburn University. We were both in the hospitality industry, working at resorts like Callaway Gardens and the Grove Park Inn, until we made the decision that Stephanie would stay home when our son was born in 1997. Our daughter was born the next year. I have over 28 years in the hospitality industry with most of that in executive management positions. Stephanie has handled the condos since we purchased them in 2004. She is very thorough and is always quick to respond to inquiries (check out the photo of her responding to inquiries while we were on vacation in a remote Alaskan bear camp on Lake Clark! How she had cell coverage I have no idea.) We enjoy what we do and consider ourselves truly blessed in so many ways. Savannah is a great city! When we are not working or raising two teenagers, we like to go to the mountains of North Carolina to relax.

Why the Owner Chose Savannah:
My wife, children and I moved to Savannah from Atlanta in October of 2001 and immediately fell in love with Savannah. We chose to invest in Savannah and purchased two units in the Bird Baldwin House in June 2004. The Bird Baldwin House was built in 1838 and is more than 170 years old! It is the oldest house south of Liberty Street. We have really enjoy owning such a unique part of Savannah's rich architectural history.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
We live in Savannah full time so we get to enjoy the Historic District and Tybee Island almost every day. The pedicabs are a great way to get around the Historic District. I work downtown and walk to almost all my meetings.
