About Charles Owens

Charles & Faye purchased the home in 2012 and renovated the cottage from top to bottom. We grew up in rural South Georgia and both love history, historic homes & furnishings. On a trip home from the beach ~10 years ago, Faye and I got our first dose of Savannah; we immediately fell in love the with charm and beauty of the City. For the next several years we would visit and dream of one day having our on piece of Savannah. The Captain's Cottage is now that piece for us; we enjoy visiting Savannah every chance we get as well as having the opportunity to share our home with you.

Not only do we enjoy Savannah, but so do our 3 beagles, Belle, Bug and Scout. They love strolling the streets and visiting the squares; most of all they love the attention they attract from their new friends they met along the way. Scout's favorite thing is to stand on the porch and greet the walking tours; he tries to see how many passersby he can sucker into a pet or tell him how cute he is....

We hope you enjoy our home & Savannah just as much as we do and look forward to being available to offer suggestions of our personal favorites.

Charles Owens purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Charles Owens chose Savannah

Each time Faye and I visited Savannah we found ourselves walking through Washington Square; it is magnetic, peaceful and beautifully maintained with manicured landscape. So when we talked about purchasing a property we knew the perfect home would be near our favorite square, Washington Square.

After months of watching the internet listings we contacted realtor, Mathew Allen. In talking with Matthew we decided to look at 2 homes nearby; it took just one visit to the Captain's Cottage for us to know this was it. It was exactly what wished for, 2 houses off Washington Square, 2b/2b, single story with a courtyard..... the perfect choice for us and our Beagles.

What makes this cottage unique

The Captain's Cottage is in the heart of the Landmark District, the oldest section of Savannah. Just 2 blocks from the famous River Street; easy walk to Broughton Street for shopping and dining; there are literally more restaurants within walking distance than I can name.

Every visitor coming to Savannah will visit the Landmark District so stay in the heart of the points of interest.

Our tree-lined street is one of the most beautiful in Savannah. There is no better street for strolling and enjoying the beautiful architecture, warm southern breezes and historic charm. It will take just one visit to see why Savannah is named the 'Hostess City'.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Your house is beautiful. Everything at your fingertips to make your stay so enjoyable. My friends and I toured the city and our stay was wonderful. We enjoyed the park just walking distance from the house and spent alot of evenings there just admiring the beauty of the surroundings.



Again, I have stayed alot of places but, your house is first on my list. If we are ever in the area again that is where we would like to stay. Our concern at first was the parking but, we bought the pass and stayed in front of the house the whole time and walked most places where we wanted to go..

Perfect Cottage

  • 5 of 5

This house is in a great location and is the cleanest house that I have ever stayed at! It is located within a couple of blocks of the river walk (lots of shops and restaurants), and is right in the historical district. Beautiful area with lots to do. Charles was a fabulous host, answered questions, gave us ideas, and helped us with anything else we needed. I highly recommend booking this residence!

Outstanding

  • 5 of 5

Charles was the host to the most. Prior to coming to stay in the Captain's Cottage, he provided all of the information needed to enter the home, where things were in the home, where to park, and what to do while in Savannah.

The home is decorated such that while there, it truly felt like home. Charles and his lovely wife thought of all of the basics... shampoo, bath gel and even a curling iron.

Being in walking distance from the cottage to the river, city market and many of Savannah's historic squares made the vacation feel more like being in a cozy community.

When there was an issue with the air conditioner, Charles came over immediately with a fan. Shortly after, a repair man arrived to fix the problem.

The pleasant experience enjoyed during the week-long stay in the Captain's Cottage has been shared with many. Hoping to come again!

We do hope y'all will come again as we so enjoyed hosting y'all!!

Charming Cozy Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We recently rented the Captains Cottage door our Savannah vacation. The Cottage was clean and nicely decorated. The location on a tree lined street with similar charming homes and Washington Park at the end of the block was beautiful.

Charles sent us all the necessary information beforehand and even offered to let us cancel our stay with no penalty with Irma brewing out to sea. We elected to come regardless and when it was necessary to evacuate the city before our stay was up due to Irma, Charles was kind and helpful. Our money for unused days refunded promptly. I would recommend a visit to Savannah and to the Captains Cottage to anyone!

LOVED IT!

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming to a convention in Savannah for the last 24 summers and have always stayed in a hotel. This was the first time to stay in a home. We LOVED it. We had two adult daughters with us and there was plenty a room to spread out. We loved the decor and enjoyed walking around the neighborhood. It was quiet in the neighborhood and easy to walk to all the places we needed to go. Would love to have a place like this in Savannah!

Owner's Response: So glad to hear that you loved the Cottage decor, location and space to relax! Tickled to hear you "loved it" ... Staying in a Vacation Rental lets you feel like a local during your stay; that's what we strive for with the decor and suggestions during your stay. We hope you'll come back next year for the conference and spend your 25th stay with us! Come back to see us as soon as you can! Safe travels!!

Captain's Cottage, great place to come back to after a day or night out.

  • 5 of 5

The Captain's Cottage is very charming and comfortable. It was very clean, the beds were comfortable, and the kitchen had everything needed to cook breakfasts or moderate dinners. The owner was in contact with us when we arrived to make sure everything was to our liking and assured us he was just a phone call away if we needed anything. Overall we loved our stay at the cottage and would certainly book here if we make it back to Savannah.

The Captain's Cottage sits in the heart of Historic Savannah. Just 2 blocks from the historic River Street; walk the cobblestone and tabby streets just as they were layed in the 1700s. Endless sightseeing, walking and biking opportunities. Savannah is one of the most pedestrian friendly cities in America.

Savannah is easy city to manipulate whether walking, driving, pedicab or public transportation. One of the easiest ways to see Savannah is on of the historic trolly tours; they allow you unlimited on-and-off so that you can enjoy the tour, hop off for some lunch or shopping and back on for another history lesson, doing so as often as you like.

Savannah Shopping is in a class all it's own. You will find some of the finest antiques from around the World; antiques abound from monarchs to cherished family heirlooms. The streets are filled with wonderful boutiques of the latest styles. There is a generous supply of shopping for any taste, age and budget.

There are numerous running, biking and boating opportunities throughout the city. If you are looking for a race to participate several occur throughout the year, from the Rock-n-Roll Marathon to the Bridge Run.

If you are looking for a little slower pace check out one of the many art and house museums; absolutely some of the finest examples of art and homes are available for viewing daily. Enjoy a show at the Lucas Theatre, tour the Green-Meldrim home where General Sherman stayed on his March to the Sea or the lavish Mercer-Williams House on Monterary Square which was featured in the Midnight of the Garden of Good & Evil film; tour the home of Juliette Gordon Lowe, the birthplace of the Girl Scouts of America.

Perhaps one of the most highly anticipated aspects of your trip is dining, Savannah has one of the most outstanding dining selections of any city. The Pink House offers fine dining even a tavern below with wonderful piano music; the Pirates House is located in the oldest building in Savannah; Moon River Brewery has it's own brew selections along with a delicious menu; countless restaurants to suit you breakfast, lunch or dinner needs. Not to mention extensive supply of bars, pubs and nightlife options.

Another one of Savannah's distinct designations, Savannah has been named the 'Most Haunted City in America'. There are numerous ghost tours from trolly, walking, coach and even one riding in a hearse. A fun and entertaining experience to learn of Savannah's haunted tales.

I am glad to help you plan your visit to the city and share my personal favorites.
