Overview

About the property

1200 SF of Living Space, 2 Bedroom + (see description), 2 bathrooms

'Savannah, where every house is a museum of sorts, every acre a romantic tomb preserving our collective Southern past. In Savannah it is useless to pretend we aren't all connected. And as such, you may as well grab a traveller and come along for the ride".

Beautiful historic loft on River Street with Savannah brick walls and wood floors thru-out encase this upscale modern comfortable home. Eclectic decor, enter this loft from historical (google it) Factor's Walk Alley and you will see from the foyer, large open areas for entertaining as well as your own balcony overlooking River Street and the Savannah River. Private ensuite offers a king bed. Other beds are a Murphy Bed (queen) and a wonderful tempurpedic Sleeper Sofa (queen) in the living area.

Spend hours watching cargo ships and tugboats go by as well as the activity of River Street. It is a favorite place to start your day with coffee or end your day with a glass of wine.

After touring Savannah, come back to the comforts of home. This River Street loft has a beautiful private suite that offers a king size bed and private bath with slate floors and slate shower. A Murphy Bed has a comfy queen mattress and the queen sofa sleeper has a wonderful tempur-pedic mattress as well. There is a second bathroom with a tub/shower combination. For your convenience, there is a full size washer/dryer and ample closet space. TV can be seen from every seat in the living area, however, there are two comfortable chairs w/ottomans great for reading. The kitchen has everything you need to cook meals, if you choose to eat in. There is a 42' high definition flatscreen TV with all the premium cable channels for your enjoyment and a flatscreen in the master as well. The loft also has Wifi.

Our guests enjoy complimentary coffee, creamer and sugar, tea varieties, quality bed linens, bath towels and down comforters. Maps, menus and touring information is available for your convenience. For your pleasure, enjoy the local books about the city and history of Savannah.

A very special benefit to this loft is the lack of climbing steps to have a 2nd floor view of River Street and the Savannah River. You enter from the alley side at the front door (5 small steps) but are on the 2nd floor on the river side. This is wonderful for people who don't like climbing stairs or have difficulty with steps. You can enjoy River Street without ever leaving the loft.

You can drive right up to the door to unload your luggage or groceries then park your car in designated city parking spaces. No parking in the alley.

About Teresa Bradshaw

This is a picture of our 14 year old named "Mullet". We lost him recently and miss him.

As managers, we work hard to make sure our guests have a memorable getaway, in a good way! We enjoy sharing our loft with guests and especially during honeymoon, birthday, girls weekends, anniversaries celebrations. We work hard to make sure every guest leaves wishing they had booked a longer vacation.

Teresa Bradshaw purchased this condo in 2003

Why Teresa Bradshaw chose Savannah

Savannah is 3rd best city to vacation according to Travel and Leisure now. There is no other place like it. Few cities have this kind of history, architecture, gardens and flowers, ghost stories, friendly people, southern charm, museums, theatre, art and the best food. There is something special to see every season of the year. If you have never visited Savannah, make time, you won't regret it. In some ways, Savannah is like traveling back in time. This loft is THE perfect location, has THE perfect view and is THE perfect place to stay when you visit Savannah.

Our guests started leaving us little love notes in the brick mortar. I guess there are hundreds hidden there now. A fun activity to pass the time

inside and feel free to leave us a new note.

What makes this condo unique

There are very few balconies on River Street where you can actually sit. A great place to watch the world go by any time of day or night. We are located in the last privately resided building on River Street. Close to the Port of Savannah provides much to see as the very large cargo ships come into port. So far, we have counted 9 high cargo trailers on these ships. Check out "shipfinders" app which tells you the size, country, what it is carrying, etc on these floating buildings.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We have stayed in Savannah several times and we were doing a long weekend with another couple. We have done Bed and Breakfasts and hotels in the area but were looking something different. This place is an old cotton warehouse that has been converted. A really great room with a great view. Full kitchen and laundry. We arrived, set up bar, walked everywhere we wanted to go and had a great time. And it was cheaper than anywhere else. First rate accommodations and a great location. Great for 2 couples.

Beautiful condo close to everything in Savannah

  • 5 of 5

The condo served as home for my wife and I for a long weekend in Savannah. We came to visit for a family wedding. The condo added to our experience. We loved everything about it!

The location is perfect -- it's right in the heart of the historic district. The condo was a short walk to restaurants, bars, historic landmarks, Forsyth Park, and much more. We loved seeing and hearing the ships pass by.

The condo has an open layout. It's very spacious. Ideal for relaxing with family or a few close friends.

Lastly, our host was very responsive and kind. (thank you so much for your hospitality) Check in/out was super easy. Our host responded very quickly to a last minute request I had at 11 PM at night.

I can't say enough positive things about this condo. I hope to have an excuse to go back someday. I would love to stay here again. Check this place out if you are heading to Savannah. You will be happy you did!

Beautiful loft in a perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this gorgeous loft in the heart of the Riverfront! The charm and character of the loft are unbelievable but it is also completely updated with modern conveniences. The location cannot be beat...so easy to walk everywhere in the historic district. There is a parking lot directly across the street and weekend parking was free. Teresa was very communicative and made sure we had a great stay. We will definitely stay here again on our next visit to Savannah!

A RETURN VISIT

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this beautiful property in August 2016 and again August 2017. We have absolutely zero complaints, both stays were excellent. The Loft is beautifully decorated, spotless clean, well equipped with everything we needed. The balcony overlooking River Street and the river is an over the top plus for this excellent Savannah location. Easy walking distance to excellent restaurants, entertainment, points of interest and the hop on hop off trolley. We are already planning on staying at this property again next Summer.

Best Place To Stay in Savannah

  • 5 of 5

We are long time Homeaway guests and come to Savannah often. We also own another vacation rental elsewhere so we kind of know good and bad. This place was awesome!

Location 5*s, Cleanliness 5*'s, Decor 5*'s. We never moved our car and easy walk to most restaurants, shopping and museums. It was so nice to come back to a comfortable living space and a comfortable bed. I only wish our stay had been longer. The owner was awesome to work with, providing all we needed for our stay but not overboard, a nice balance. We knew how to get in touch if we needed something. If you are trying to decide on this loft and another space, pick the right one, this one. You will not be disappointed. We will be back!

The property was awesome! Very spacious and its in walking distance of a lot of things!

  • 5 of 5

The loft was gorgeous and very spacious! Had everything we needed. I went with 2 of my friends and had the best time! We were in walking distance of restaurants, sight seeing, shopping and all the nightlife! The balcony looks onto River Street and we enjoyed sitting up there and playing cards and watching the sights! We would go back in a heartbeat! Highly recommended! Good loft, good food and drinks and good friends! Perfect!

Wonderful location, great view of river, very clean, and nicely decorated!

  • 5 of 5

Loved our 4-night stay here. The cleanliness was impressive - I always check the beds and bathrooms before unpacking. The car we drove was small enough to park in the alley by the apartment (safe, didn't block the alley, and no fee) but if we had driven a full-size car or SUV, then we would have had to use a parking garage. We were completely satisfied with location and view. I had concern about the possible noise level upon arrival but it was never a problem.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the nice comments. We are happy you enjoyed our loft. The alley is wide enough to handle my Ford 150 Crew Cab as well as a smaller car so one can drive right up to the front door and unload luggage, groceries but because it is closed off at one end, one cannot drive thru and has to back out of the alley onto the ramp. You just have to do it slowly as there is foot traffic. You cannot park in the alley even if there is room because it is not allowed and you can be towed. We tell guests this when booking. Of course it was on a weekend when parking is free but police do walk the alley and can ticket as well. Also the city is contemplating changing the parking rules and may extend the 5:00pm cutoff to later in the night and eliminate free weekends. I would not recommend parking in the alley due to possible damage to your car from others, towing or parking violation ticket. There is plenty of parking and we provide a parking guide. There are also many parking garages, the closest less than 2 blocks away.
