Great Property Close to Downtown
This property was exactly what our group needed. Clean, easy to access,and close to the downtown area. We loved it.
We needed lodging for 5 in a very short time frame, fair price and nice home.
This property met the needs of my family as we had a short time frame to book lodging for 5 of us for our sons wedding. The property was nice, a little difficult for my 86 yr. old Mother in Law as it was a second floor unit and the stairs were quite steep. The harder part was the lack of safety rails leading up the exterior stairs. The beds in the home seem to be a bit older and not the most comfortable, and the master bedroom faces a busy street with a lot of street noise and street lights that shine brightly into the room. This is not that huge of a deal, but combined with the thin walls in the entire building and the very loud party in the neighboring unit, which my husband had to knock on their door at 11:15 pm and ask to keep it down, we would not consider renting again. Additionally, the bathrooms did not feel as clean as we are accustomed to, with orange bacteria stains on the shower liners. It was a very rainy weekend, and we tried to use the dryer after we washed a few towels and wanted to dry a wet bath mat. Unfortunately, the dryer never worked. However the sweet cleaning lady came and replaced the bath mats and took the washed and wet towels to be dried. I did not find the conversations I had with the owner/manager to be professional or respectful. I would not look to rent from this agency in the future. We have rented numerous larger homes, cabins and lodgings throughout the US and never had a bad experience. This was not terrible, but it certainly did not make for a very comfortable stay.
I fully understand, that everyone has a different perception and for many this should be considered a great property at a fair price.
Thank you for confirming the unit should be considered a great property at a fair price. Regrettably the property did not meet your expectations as noted in the review. I do take the quality and cleanliness of the unit seriously. Upon discovering the problem with the shower curtain liner the property manager was sent over immediately with a new shower curtain liner, but the installation was declined by the guest. Additionally the cleaning process and housekeepers have been reevaluated to correct any future issues. Unfortunately the dryer was not working properly and has since been replaced with a brand new unit. The need to dry the bathroom floor mat (and towels) was caused by the guest placing the shower curtain liner outside of the tube causing the bathroom floor to be flooded. I understand that a senior guest may have problems with stairs but as this is a second story unit it should have been expected. The building is a multi-unit structure and meets all modern building codes for the city of Savannah (as of 2009 when the building was renovated) yet maintains the external Historical architecture as required. Sometimes the other guest or tenants can behave improperly. It's agreed that everyone has their own perspective.
Great place in a great location!
We loved staying here. The property is gorgeous and as clean as can be. It seemed like it was only a mile away from everything...perfect for visiting historic Savannah.
Easy access to everything. Nearby grocery (Kroger Market), free shuttle service with a stop nearby. Free non-metered street parking in front of the unit. Easy walk to Forsyth Park.
About Mary Pizzimenti
My husband and I enjoy spending time in Savannah as we love the southern hospitality, friendliness of the residents and beauty of the city.
Why Mary Pizzimenti chose Beach Institute
We love Savannah and all of its history and charm. The genuine friendliness of the residents and visitors is second to none. It has great restaurants, entertainment, shopping, nearby beaches and countless other activities. With some 200 city-wide festivals and events each year there is always something to do and someplace to go.
What makes this Condo unique
Place yourself in Savannah's rich history. This property was completely renovated to help preserver the historic charm and significance that keeps Savannah a unique and beautiful city. The exterior maintains the period correct architecture while the interior has all the modern conveniences and comforts. The original structure has been described as Vernacular Neoclassical Revival, local interpretation of a combination of Georgian Revival and Edwardian architecture. With its pediment porches and two-story porticos supported by round columns, the building has been formally identified as being of 'significant value as a Classical Revival apartment house'. Originally set aside as 'Garden Lots' in General Oglethorpe's original town plan of Savannah, the land would become known as the Beach Institute Neighborhood. Early records find that in 1782 the land, named Fairlawn Plantation, was a working rice plantation. In 1853 with the advent of the Savannah & Albany Railroad, construction of Savannah's East Side began in earnest. Workers for the railroad were in need of housing and developers capitalized on that need by developing land tracts slated for building lots. Of interest, is that a single African American woman, Mary Ellen Richardson, wholly developed the property. She owned the property from 1868 until her death in 1929. Somewhere between 1898 and 1916 the original structure was replaced with the building that stands to this day. Mary Richardson's also built the Carpenter Italianate row house as well as a single-family dwelling in the same area.
