Very nice

  • 5 of 5

The place was very nice, very quiet neighborhood and well insulated for inside noise. The kitchen was well supplied with nice touches added, like candle for dining room table. Half way between Tybee Island and Savannah, it was easy to get to and from.

We also enjoyed the screen in porch but not as much as we would have if the weather had been a bit warmer.

Our friends are still talking about it and we would definitively recommend it, Lina

Savannah Vacation Home

  • 4 of 5

The property was very nicely laid out, it was clean, and spacious for the 3 of us that stayed there. The house was located in a quiet neighborhood and was close to a grocery store and restaurants. We were down there for my sons wedding, and a majority of the people attending stayed right downtown so they didn't have to drive. Most of our time was spent downtown so we did more driving than expected. But on the other hand the rehearsal dinner was out on Tybee Island so we were alot closer to there, plus we spent another day on the island, so to me its pretty much a wash. My only issue was with the checkout that is listed on the paperwork within the house. It states that checkout time is 10am, but after rushing around to clean things up and by the time I checked my email, we found out it was supposed to be 11am. So I would just suggest updating that sheet. Otherwise, a very enjoyable place and time spent in Savannah.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This is an excellent welcoming property and not far from Savannah proper. The aura was warm and inviting. The beds were very comfortable. The home provided all the necessary amenities. We had an opportunity to talk to Kathy and she was a delight. We would highly recommend this property to others. Mary & Rory
