About Erwin Bartsch

Hi, my name is Erwin Bartsch. I moved to Savannah in 1998 from Cape Town, South Africa and made it my home for the next 10 years. Coming from South Africa, I enjoy outdoors activities such as cycling, kite boarding, and running.

Erwin Bartsch purchased this townhome in 2005

Why Erwin Bartsch chose Savannah

This house is in my opinion ideally located - it has great views of Forsyth Park and i enjoy being able to watch the rugby and ultimate frisbee games from the front steps. Forsyth Park has a great atmosphere, for activities, walking, and is fast becoming the cultural stage for all kinds of concerts and events in Savannah. I further enjoy that it is not amongst the bars and shops of Broughton street. Also, parking is not an issue.

A perfect place

The property was as advertised. Nicely decorated, plenty of room to spread out and in a perfect location in the historic district. We were sorry to see our stay end!

Lovely stay in Savannah

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic home to use as our home base while exploring Savannah with the family. Everything we needed was provided. Right near Forsyth Park if you want to exercise or play, and everything within walking distance downtown. Thank you for a great rental!

Great Location, but wish it were downstairs!

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time. Location is right beside Forsyth Park with restaurants within walking distance. Probably should drive if going down to the main strip on the water. The only issue is that there are steep stairs to get into the apartment as it is on the second floor. This created a challenge for us since we had an older dog with us that is unable to go up stairs and weighs over 70 lbs. In addition to this, I wish it had been more clear in the description that there are no bedrooms downstairs (Once you get up the steep stairs that you enter the apartment, the apartment itself is 2 stories). Both bedrooms are upstairs.. so my parents ended up sleeping on the couch. The other negative was there was no spare toilet paper?? This didn't make any sense and was maybe an oversight by the housekeeper. They only provide 2 towels per bedroom. So if you stay more than a day make sure and buy detergent (They don't provide this either) so you can wash the towels. Parking was hit or miss as you have to park on the public parking on the side of the road so first come, first serve. That said, we had not problems with the parking and we had 2 cars. The negatives were minor inconveniences, but worth noting for anyone considering to stay here. Overall the place is wonderful and the beds are pretty comfortable.. The big plus is the location for this property.

Owner's Response: Dear Josh, Glad you enjoyed your stay and the location of the house. I will certainly take up the lack of toilet paper with the Housekeeper as there should be sufficient for your stay. I have also updated my website to indicate that the bedrooms are upstairs. Thank you for your feedback and I hope to welcome you back again soon

Beautiful home on the park

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely upstairs unit one block from Forsyth Park; well decorated and comfortable, with a beautiful outdoor sitting area overlooking a cute Koi pond. The kitchen was well stocked and the dining table large enough to accommodate 8 comfortably. Erwin (the owner) is very easy to work with and responds promptly. We had no issues at all during our stay. I did tell Erwin that the mattresses and pillows in both bedrooms need to be replaced (they are extremely hard, and all four of us thought uncomfortable) but other than that it was a perfect stay.

Lovely townehome in a great location

  • 4 of 5

My girlfriend and I stayed here in October for our annual girlfriend getaway weekend. This was a lovely home in a great location near Forsythe Park. We were able to walk everywhere in the historic district. The 2 upstairs bedrooms and bathrooms were quite large. Very nice kitchen with everything you would need to prepare meals, however, that's not what we want to do when we go away! The outside stairs going into the 2nd floor (a permanent resident lives below, which was never an issue, never heard them) were a little narrow which may be a bit challenging for someone having trouble getting around. Our only suggestion would be to put blinds or curtains on the kitchen window, we felt a little like being in a fishbowl. Also, to housekeeping, I would make sure to leave plenty of toilet paper for guests! Found a 1/2 used roll in a cabinet above the washer. All in all, we'd recommend this property.
