WHY SETTLE FOR A CONDO OR A HOTEL ROOM IN THE LANDMARK HISTORIC DISTRICT WHEN YOU CAN HAVE YOUR OWN HOUSE WITH A PRIVATE COURTYARD FOR ABOUT THE SAME PRICE, OR OFTEN EVEN LESS!!!

This unique and one of a kind house was featured on the HGTV and GAC shows 'You Live in What?' in 2015. It was built in 1861, originally as a residence, with wood siding and the entrance facing Jones Street. Around the turn of the century, it was converted to a grocery store, stuccoed, and the front door was moved to the corner, like many of the businesses in the Landmark Historic District. It remained a grocery until 1980 and then was converted back to a residence, although the door remained at its present location on the corner.

The house is located on Jones Street, which is reputed to be the most beautiful street in Savannah. You are within walking distance of everything in the Landmark Historic District, and only blocks from Clary's, Mrs. Wilke's Dining Room, the Firefly Cafe, and the Mercer House. River Street, Broughton Street, and Forsyth Park are all within walking distance through the beautiful squares of Savannah.

The house is very open and surprisingly spacious inside, with a very large modern kitchen, which is open to the living and dining area. Be a couch potato, while watching the wall mounted 42 inch flat screen TV. Or enjoy your favorite program or movie while preparing a meal in the totally renovated kitchen. The kitchen is fully equipped and has brand new stainless steel appliances and granite counter tops.

The bedroom is separated from the living area by sliding glass panels. The bathroom is large and has a jetted shower.

Enjoy your morning coffee or an evening glass of wine in your cozy private landscaped courtyard.

This house is very comfortable for one or two adults, and up to two younger children, or three adults only. It is not suitable for two couples. If your group consists of two couples, I would suggest booking a property that has two bedrooms.

This house is pet friendly for an additional fee. However, due to insurance restrictions, certain breeds of dogs, any dog whose lineage contains a part of that breed, or any dog with a previous bite or attack history, are not allowed on the premises. The following dog breeds are named, but not limited to:

American Pit Bull

Staffordshire Bull Terrier

Rottweiler

Doberman Pinscher

Chows

About Betty Roane

I moved to Savannah in 2004 because I fell in love with it when my older sons attended The Savannah College of Art and Design. I currently live a short walk from this rental.

Betty Roane purchased this house in 2010

Why Betty Roane chose Savannah

I bought this property because it gives guests the opportunity to have an entire house with private courtyard to themselves. Most one bedroom properties are condos without any outside space or ones that share a courtyard.

What makes this house unique

This house is centrally located and within walking distance of everything in the Landmark Historic District and has free parking right out front.

Beautiful, Clean Home in Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in Savannah. E. Jones Street is absolutely beautiful -- we loved walking to and from the house. Everything inside is perfectly maintained, impeccably clean, and incredibly comfortable. Looking forward to returning soon!

Great location, easy walk to lots of restaurants, bars, and shops. The place was clean, safe, and beautifully decorated. The owner has a great response time and is willing to answer any questions you may have. We would be interested in renting again!

Great House! Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd stay in this beautiful home. Betty is wonderful! My husband and I love the location of this rental. It's located slightly "away" from all the hussle & bustle of downtown Savannah but with a 5-10 minute walk you are right among all the beautiful

Squares and beautiful old Holmes & even Broughton (shopping!) and River Street. Betty has the house stocked with anything you would need during your stay. We always feel so at home. This is definitely the house we'll always rent when making a trip to Savannah!

Outstanding!

Great place for a getaway. Nothing like having full kitchen and living space to feel at home while being away. Unit is beautiful, so many nice touches. Highly recommended!

Hit the jackpot!

  • 5 of 5

I cannot rave enough about this rental - first of all, Betty, the owner, was so sweet and easy to communicate with before and during our stay. The place itself has obviously had much thought and effort put into the renovation. It is very modern, clean, and beautiful. The details are stunning and it truly feels like a home away from home. The location is a short walk from all the parks, shops, and restaurants, all the while being quaint, quiet, and tucked away from the main touristy streets. In fact, we learned during our stay that Jones Street was voted 9th prettiest street in the country. I would highly recommend this place to anyone, especially for 2 people, although it can accommodate 4 with the pull out sofa. I plan on telling all my family and friends, and will most likely be back in the future. The price paid was well worth the stay - in fact, we truly feel like we got a deal with what we got. A hidden gem!

This home is very nice and perfectly located to easily walk around the historic district. Betty was very helpful and made sure we had everything we needed. Had a great long weekend weekend in Savannah and would love to stay here again.
