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.

Why Charles Owens chose Historic District - North
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'.

Immaculately furnished, well maintained property in a great location! We will definitely stay here again when visiting Savannah!
We are in love
If you are looking for a great 2 bedroom home full of character, look no further. This will be the ONLY place our family stays while in Savannah! Charles was an amazing and helpful host, and did I mention how close you are to the riverfront? They were accommodating of our fur babies and there is a great park within 50 yards of the house. We weren’t ready to leave! Simply amazing.
Wonderful Family Stay!
Charles’ house was beautiful and charming. It was perfect for our family of four. There was everything you’d need in the kitchen, as well as shampoo and body wash in the bathrooms. The house was very clean and the beds super comfy. Charles checked in to make sure we had everything we needed and was quick to respond to questions. The location was great as well (a block away from the trolley stop). We hope to stay here again next time we’re in Savannah.
Wonderful small home in the historic district
The captain's cottage is a beautifully decorated 2BR/2BA home that is well suited for a small family or 2 couples. The location is fantastic.... A three to five minute walk to River street or Broughton, and you can be almost anywhere in the historic district in <15 min. Even better that it's just far enough away from some of the busier tourist zones that you can actually find parking on the street.
Charles was a fantastic host, and you can tell a lot of care has gone into the property.
