Why Manderly & Marcia chose Historic District - North

We bought this home for our semi-retirement several years ago, before we were ready to retire, but the market was right and we couldn't let this one get away. We love it for it's location and historic nature. It's in the heart of everything but quiet and serene at the same time.

What makes this house unique

I think the biggest benefit is the ability to walk everywhere in only a few minutes. There are so many great shops, art galleries and resturants just a few minutes away. That and the gated parking which is impossible to find downtown.

We had a great stay in this property . Check in and out was super easy with the code system . We had an issue second last day with some plumbing problem but when I called they told us to go enjoy the day and their maintenance would be there shortly to repair. When we returned home later all had been taken care of. Property was in a great location- walkable to sites but could return to safe, quiet neighbourhood in the evening. We were very satisfied with everything about this property and would recommend to others.

The trip to Savannah for Mom's birthday was perfect, starting with the Norris Cook House! We loved the space it provided and the full kitchen for a light breakfast and coffee. The back patio is small, but having an enclosed parking spot is wonderful! Front porch was nice to sit in the afternoons and watch the carriages go by! We did not know the home is for sale, so at first sight, we were worried it may be shown while we were there. But no issues! Good location and value for two bedrooms and baths. Walking distance to many good restaurants, shops and attractions.

We loved the house and our stay there. My only comment would be that there was very little place for luggage or to put your things. We loved Savannah and found it very easy to get around!!

Reviewer Comments:

We went to meet a couple for an annual weekend trip. The location of this rental is walking distance to everywhere we wanted to go. Parking was no problem, as we were here for the weekend and MLK Holiday, so no charge for metered space. Our second vehicle fit nicely in the gated parking area on the property. The house is old, but the upkeep is excellent. The appliances look new, but we didn't cook at the house. There seemed to be plenty of cookware/dishes for us 4. I did have a problem getting onto the internet via WiFi, but not a big deal. Noise was not bad in the evenings, but more apparent than in the burbs. We would definitely consider this location next time in Savannah.
