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.

Betty's house is my favorite place to stay in Savannah. My husband and I have stayed there several times over the last couple of years. It has everything you need and is ideal for a couple. My favorite thing about the house is the private and secure courtyard and it is within walking distances of so many great places in Savannah. Betty is also always gracious when she meets her guests and is easy to get a hold of if you need her. I had to make a last minute trip to Savannah and luckily her house was available for the nights I needed. Thank you again Betty for another great stay!!!

Great location. Easy to park and close to several dining options within walking distance. So nice to come home to after busy days of sightseeing. Comfortable and very clean. We highly recommend.

Comfortable Studio Apartment

  • 5 of 5

This home was just the right size for a couple (and our two small dogs) enjoying a weeks stay in the charming city of Savannah. It was clean, graciously appointed and has a wonderful little private courtyard. Conveniently located to just about everything in the historic district. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will be back!

Excellent accommodations!

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay in Betty's historic district house. It's very private since it's a separate building with living room, kitchen, dining area, separate bedroom, bathroom and small patio. It was very comfortably decorated with absolutely everything we could ever need, and there's a washer and dryer out back which is very convenient. We enjoyed eating breakfast each morning on the pretty patio. It's located in a beautiful part of the historic district and an easy walk to downtown. Betty is a pleasure to deal with. Highly recommended!

Savannah is a beautiful place. Jones Street is tree-lined and was convenient located.

Betty responded very quickly to all of my questions and provided a lot more information in order to make my stay enjoyable. The house is beautifully decorated and has all that you need. Conveniently located but also quiet.
