Recent Savannah reviews

  • Felt like a local.

    "We rented this home for one week and it was very homey. I was actually surprised by how spacious it felt. It has been painted a more neutral gray since photos were taken. Best part: garage as parking is tough, proximity to Crystal Beer Parlor for good burgers, Pulaski Square for walking the dogs and generally a great location to walk to anything in the historic district. Also, the Lucky Savannah Management was super responsive as the a/c was not functioning properly when we arrived. They sent a guy out on a Sunday and fixed it and a clogged master sink right away. Plenty of closet space. If I had to be picky and find flaws, I'd suggest a thicker ironing board pad, really need to repair the exterior door frame as it is rotting and sometimes made closing door difficult, ignitor on grill doesn't work so we got one of those clicker things and left it for others and the bed pillows were not as fluffy as we are used to. Again - minor things that did not affect our overall joy and we'd recommend it to anyone."

  • Carriage House - Great Stay

    "We stayed in the Carriage House while visiting Savannah. It was clean and spacious. The courtyard is a hidden gem just to relax and enjoy the spa. This property is the perfect location to everything in Savannah. Just park the car and go. Wonderful Cafe just down the street and many restaurants within walking distance. Parking passes are a must to make your stay less stressful. The parking was always available in front of the Estate or very close by. Cindy was very helpful and quick to help us when we needed it. Would stay here again in a heartbeat. Make sure you try Leopold's ice cream and Vinnie Van Go Go's for Pizza in the market square. Thank you Cindy for letting us experience such a great place."

  • Sister's birthday and vacation

    "We have been to Savannah many times now but this was the best place to stay by far. The property is gorgeous and right on the river. We spent just about every day just sitting on the dock watching the tide come in and out and the wild life. The cottage is beautiful and the owners were very accommodating. I would highly recommend this location. The only thing that would have made it better is if we would have had our own boat."

  • "Luxury Living" ?

    "We flew to Savannah for a 5- day vacation in February. The location of this rental is great-- in the historic district, close to restaurants, shopping. Private parking in the garage is a nice perk. I had spoken to the caretaker a few times on the phone -- she was pleasant and very helpful. The rental was very clean, the bed linens lovely. Still, for a rental that advertises as "luxury" we were a little disappointed. Toilet paper, Kleenex, paper towels are all rationed -- you get what's there and if you run out go buy it. The kitchen has no food wrap, aluminum foil, not even a Baggie to wrap up our cheese and veggies. Not even salt and pepper.... Although we only had appetizers in the evening, and coffee, yogurt and fruit for breakfast, we were disappointed with the lack of stocked supplies. There is one Tide pod, so don't get your one bath towel too dirty. Also, the WiFi connection is so weak it was unusable. if the owner would be willing to stock the little extras (at a cost of maybe $5 for the five days we stayed?) and improve the WiFi then this property could be billed as Luxury. It is very attractive and private but also bare-bones."

Savannah Travel Tips

Savannah offers a pedestrian-friendly layout for tourists spending time in the city. Visitors are drawn into the city's cobblestone streets and awe-inspiring architecture mixed with its Spanish moss-covered trees. The ideal time to visit this coastal city is during the spring when azaleas, wisteria, dogwood and jasmine are in full bloom, but any time is perfect thanks to its southern location and proximity to the Atlantic Ocean. Savannah, Ga., is the oldest city in the state of Georgia and was established in 1733. It served as a strategic port city in the American Civil War. Millions of people visit Savannah each year to explore the city's historic sites.

Savannah Attractions

Forsyth Park, which has been part of the city since the 1840s, takes up 30 acres in the city's Historic District. There are walking paths, a cafe, a play area for children, a large fountain and a fragrant garden for the blind. In the park is the Confederate Memorial Statue honoring the lives of those who lost their lives in the fight for the Confederacy during the Civil War. The fountain at the park's north end was built in 1858 and resembles the Place de la Concorde in Paris.

Bonaventure Cemetery is one of the most famous in Savannah and was established in 1846. Tales of ghosts wandering through the grounds of this Southern Gothic burial site has served as an inspiration for writers, poets and photographers for more than 150 years. Bonaventure serves as the final resting place for military generals, poet Conrad Aiken and Georgia's first governor Edward Telfair. The cemetery is also a reflection on the evolving views on death and dying during the Victorian Era as it became a more romanticized and ritualized process. John Berendt's book "Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil," features a photo of the "Bird Girl" statue on the book's cover which was once located in the cemetery, but has since moved to the Telfair Museum of Art.

Everything about Savannah is significant to the city and country's past, so the Savannah Historic District is something you'll want to visit in order to really appreciate all the city has to offer. The district is a National Historic Landmark and encompasses the original town plan that was constructed in 1733 by General James E. Oglethorpe, Georgia's founder. Visitors to the site can see much of the original city layout as well as the wards, squares and trustee lots. Surrounding the Historic District are Georgian, Greek Revival and Gothic buildings including the Edmund Molyneux Mansion, the Spencer Woodbridge House and the Greene House. Also in the district is Beach Institute, the city's first black school and an important site dating back to 1865.

The Telfair Museums offer an experience unlike any other. It's the oldest public art museum in the Southeast and there are three buildings that make up the museum's complex: the Telfair Academy, the Owens-Thomas House and the Jepson Center. There are approximately 4,000 works of art that provides a glimpse into Savannah's dynamic history. Contemporary art is housed in the Jepson Center and visitors can step back in time to the 19th century in the period rooms at the Owens-Thomas House, while visitors can gaze in awe at the artifacts at the Telfair Academy. Before you leave, be sure to grab a bite to eat at the Jepson Cafe and pick up souvenirs at the Jepson Center and Owens-Thomas House.

Things to Do in Savannah

River Street: The Savannah waterfront is located along River Street, the city's best spot for shopping and dining. Eateries on River Street include Fiddler's Crab House, Bayou Cafe, Bernie's Oyster House and The Warehouse Bar and Grille.

The Cathedral of Saint John the Baptist: The cornerstone for the Cathedral was laid during November 1873 and the building was dedicated upon its completion in 1876. During that same year the Most Reverand James Roosevelt dedicated the French Gothic style Cathedral that featured four side altars made of white Italian marble. A fire swept through the city in 1898 and destroyed the Cathedral. Several renovations have been done throughout the years and today is part of the Savannah Historic District.

Old Fort Jackson: This preserved fort is situated along the Savannah River and the oldest standing brick fort in the state. The National Historic Landmark offers interactive programs for visitors as well as cannon firings. Also at the site you'll catch a glimpse of the city's riverfront skyline as well as the Talmadge Bridge that takes you in and out of the Savannah.
