About the property

Garden Level Apt: Townhouse: 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Spacious Garden Level of a c1875 Brick Townhouse in the heart of the Historic District on Beautiful East Jones Street. Walk to everything!

No stairs here, and also no step-down or basement feel to this beautiful ground floor 900 square foot one-bedroom apartment with fully updated kitchen & decor. Walking distance to anything in the Historic District. Situated between Forsyth Park (0.4 miles south of the house) and the River (0.7 miles north of the house) Jones Street is known as the prettiest street in Savannah. Jones is halfway between Forsyth Park and the River making it the definition of 'centrally located'.

Bedroom has a fabulous King size bed as well as a reading sofa. There is a 2nd flat screen tv in the bedroom which is totally separate from the Living Room for privacy. There is a Queen pullout sofa in the beautifully decorated living room. The bathroom is off of the kitchen.

Beautiful furnished back patio is yours to enjoy. Partially covered and partially sunny for the best of both worlds! Relax outdoors under a ceiling fan for breakfast or cocktail hour or even a meal if you tire of dining out!

Prime location, you will see horse drawn carriage tours passing right by your front door. No vehicle needed if you prefer to walk or take a very short taxi or pedicab ride to all the restaurants and nightlife destinations we have. One short block from Whitefield Square and also Troupe Square!

VERY SECURE, this house has bars on the windows and doors. You will see this on many houses in Savannah and the owners think it's pretty convenient! This is a historical feature that may seem extreme to some, especially on the prettiest street in town but one thing is for sure-- you can lock the place down like 'Fort Knox' if you want to!

Parking is free on-street and generally very easy. Most of our guests park right outside the apartment door.

Bed linens and towels provided.

This home is steps away from Fox and Fig as well as the famous breakfast spot Clary's open 7 days a week. Johnnie Ganem's Winery (and liquor store), also a local tradition, is a stroll away through Troupe Square. The major downtown supermarket is within walking distance. Walk less than a mile to Broughton Street or River Street and you will have a vast selection of other amazing dining and night life options.

The 'main house' upstairs is available on VRBO as well under listing 394500. It has 2 bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms.

Check in after 3pm, checkout by 11am.

Approval for 1-night stay will be on a case by case basis. There is a $50 single night surcharge in addition to the standard nightly rate. Email or Call to find out if your single night is possible.

Cancellation Policy: There is no refund for the first payment if you book on this advertising platform but they offer trip cancelation insurance during online checkout. You will not owe the 2nd half if you cancel more than 30 days before you arrive. Feel free to call for clarification.

About Mary Anderson

Hello my name is Mary! I am the property manager for this rental (which is also my former home) and I have lived in Savannah for over 12 years. I am also a licensed real estate agent in the state of Georgia. Feel confident renting from a long time resident and business owner with strong ties in the Savannah community. I manage property for my friends and neighbors all over downtown!

Mary Anderson purchased this apartment in 2008

Why Mary Anderson chose Beach Institute

Savannah's downtown is such a unique and beautiful design that many people who have traveled around the world name our city as their favorite place. The public green space carefully preserved throughout the downtown and the mix of gorgeous homes, shops, museums and restaurants is what makes the 1-mile Historic District a destination for over 12 million tourists a year.

What makes this apartment unique

When my husband and I lived in this home, we loved walking around our beautiful neighborhood and dining out frequently. The location, just steps from restaurants such as the Firefly Cafe as well as the Broughton Street nightlife, is the top feature of this home. Jones Street is known as the most beautiful street in Savannah, due to its grand width, its historic brick foundation and the gorgeous live oaks mixed with magnolias and palm trees. Additionally, for a single bedroom rental this apartment has a large scale including a nice ceiling height that will not make you feel closed in or have a 'rabbit warren' affect. We have decorated the entire apartment in a fresh clean contemporary fashion to appeal to guests of all ages.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My experience was world class from the moment I made the inquiry to the moment we left. Mary anderson was a dream to work with. She was responsive and very available via phone or email. The unit was as described: clean and well appointed right in the Historic District of Savannah. We were actually 2 couples. The LR sofa pulls out as a hide-a-bed. As there was an alternate entrance in the back through the patio, the living room could actually be used as a private bedroom space. The covered patio made for a congenial social place to gather and share food and wine. The convenience of a large supermarket nearby was a huge plus.

Great apartment on a lovely residential street

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in this great apartment on one of the best streets in Savannah. The street is residential and away from the commotion of downtown yet just a short walk to many lovely destinations. The apartment itself was roomy, clean, and comfortable. Our only regret is that we didn't spend more time here.

Great location ! Cute place !

  • 4 of 5

The location of this apartment and ground level access is Wonderful ! It's small, but cute and all we needed. Would recommend a new mattress, a TV program schedule, and directions on use of the thermostat. Otherwise, all good ! We really enjoyed our stay in Savannah.

Charming, cosy & comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

We visited Mary’s lovely apartment for two nights from January 29-31 and the location was absolutely ideal! Close enough to walk to all the sights we wanted to see, yet tucked away in a peaceful neighbourhood on one of the prettiest streets in Savannah! Free parking was easily available on the street and never an issue. The little garden area in the back was a nice place to relax after a day of sight seeing. Mary provides an excellent information binder, pointing out sights to see and restaurants in the various areas. Also, on the living room mantle, there is an abundance of ‘sights to see pamphlets’ available to review. We did not take a troller tour but choose to walk everywhere instead, so especially helpful was the ‘Connect the Dots’ pamphlet which shows where you can get on and off this free transit system when you need a little break from walking. We ate at The Thai (very good) and The Public Kitchen (excellent). Our favourite sights (all free) to see were the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist (amazing and included an informative tour by one of the parishioners...well worth a donation to the church), River Street and the whole riverfront area (active & fun) and Forsyth Park (just beautiful). We would most definitely stay at Mary’s when visiting Savannah again!

Charming apartment and convenient location.

  • 5 of 5

Even in 40 degree weather we walked to everything. We loved the place- it had everything we needed for a few days stay, including a wonderful little electric fireplace/heater that I covet! Bed and bedding were comfy and soft, kitchen was well supplied. We would stay again, and hope for warmer weather next time to be able to enjoy the outdoor patio.

Milton, Fl

Great location, and had everything we needed

  • 5 of 5

The property manager was very easy to work with. She sent easy instructions on how to access the rental. Everything was clean and the pictures were accurate. The location was the best part, we were able to walk to everything. The street sweepers are annoying if you are going to stay on the weekend. You can't park on one side of the street on Friday night, and then you can't park on the other side of the street on Saturday night. But you can park a street down, and you won't have to worry about moving your car. The only negative thing I would have to say is that the toilet paper is very cheap and thin, it is the Scott one ply brand. Everything else was great. I would stay here again.
