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.

nice and clean vacation home
a nice and clean vacation home. closed to forsyth park and krogers.
Perfect for our cousins weekend.
Great location, easy to get to Forsyth park.
Nice place to stay in Savannah. Well-equipped kitchen and dining area that supplements the small living area. Spacious master suite though street noise may disturb light sleepers. On edge of historic district but still walkable. Near beautiful Forsyth Park. Completely updated and interesting historic property. Street parking easy. Owner good to work with. Worked well for us.
the condo was very nice on the inside. it's a perfect place to stay with your friends, but the bed we stayed in was hard as a rock. I had to end up sleeping on the couch bc the springs were so bad they were digging in my back. We stayed in the middle room so i'm not sure about the other two rooms but our bed was horrible. Other than that everything was great and perfect location, not far from downtown Savannah. They do have some movies but kind of outdated and there is no cable. If you're trying to catch the game, plan on going to a local sports bar. The kitchen is bigger than I expected and the balcony is great if you're just wanting to hang out outside. There is a board inside with all the local places to eat and where the shuttles take you which was very helpful to us. I would recommend staying here if you don't mind sleeping on a hard mattress and if you are looking for something affordable for a group of people.
Thanks for confirming the quality of the unit and the great location. Sorry about the bed. I’ll look into it and see if there is an issue with that mattress and have it corrected. We do have basic cable TV service. Was it not working? I’ll look into this too. I will consider expanding the TV service, which will increase costs, but I hesitate to do this as I wish to keep the unit as affordable as possible so everyone can have the opportunity to enjoy Savannah at a reasonable price. Update: Housekeeping checked the mattress and they reported no issue.
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.
