Overview

About the property

2 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths (Sleeps 4-6) Beautifully Renovated Historic Home

A beautifully renovated townhouse in Historic Downtown Savannah! This property has been completely updated with beautiful high end finishes for your comfort and enjoyment. The owners have successfully preserved historic features throughout such as mantles and molding that are especially ornate and memorable. Sit on the front porch and wave to the tour Trolleys or cozy up on the private back porch with a good book.

This home has luxurious King beds in both bedrooms! Each has its own television and French doors leading to the cozy back porch with comfy reading chairs which are dedicated to this listing exclusively.

The full bathroom is conveniently located between the bedrooms and the spacious half bath is across the hallway, also convenient for all members of your party.

There is a pullout sofa in the living room allowing the home to sleep 6 adults.

The living room, dining and kitchen are one large open area. This is a great setup for socializing! The gorgeous high end outdoor space is the crowning jewel of this property. Enjoy a working outdoor wood burning fireplace during the 9 or so months out of the year when Savannah can surprise you with a cold evening.

A popular wedding/event venue 'Brockington Hall' is 1.5 blocks from this home. The surrounding amenities include a major well stocked grocery store (1 block away), a luxury day spa (3 blocks away), tennis courts (at Forsyth), a gourmet health food store (at the South end of Forsyth) and many fabulous restaurants (700 Drayton, Leoci's Trattoria, Local 11Ten) within a few blocks of the home.

This unit is all on one level. There are some stairs from the sidewalk to the main entrance but no interior staircase is present.

The courtyard (separated by stairs from the private porch) with more patio seating and a working outdoor fireplace is shared with the 1BR/1BA carriage house which is listing #475721 on VRBO.

This rental is licensed by City of Savannah SVR-00151

About Mary Anderson

My name is Mary and I am the reservation manager for this amazing property. The owners renovated it lovingly and take amazing care of it. I am thrilled to offer it to my guests! While this listing is new and may not have a review history, please 'view my other listings' and also my website for a long history of good reviews on my properties and my service as a reservation manager. I'm also a licensed real estate agent in the state of Georgia.

Mary Anderson purchased this house in 1996

Why Mary Anderson chose Savannah

Historic Downtown Savannah is a place where people get enchanted and fall head over heels in love. With the city itself and with their loved ones too. This house is a great representation of why Savannah has an appeal that has made it the destination of over a million tourists annually.

What makes this house unique

Most vacation guests want to buy groceries and spend some time 'at home'. This location will ensure you can do that with the greatest of ease while also being a stone's throw from every tourist destination on your list. Walkers and runners as well as cyclists will also love their proximity to Forsyth Park. Families with children will be pleased with the lovely playgrounds nearby. While all of Savannah boasts beautiful houses, there are just a few 'Belgium Stone' or 'Belgium Block' homes like this one that convey a sense of grandeur and solidity. There truly is nothing like a well built historic home that has been carefully renovated to add modern day comforts!

The unit met all of our expectations! It was the perfect place for a mother / daughter getaway.!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Porch Lover'a Dream. The unit itself was beautifully cared for. We loved the porches and have never slept so well when away from home!

The location is great. We enjoyed Mate Factor a few doors down to start our days. Easy walking distance to bus stops or anywhere in the historical area... including the river. We enjoyed ending our days on the front porch! I would definitely stay here again.

Perfection in Savannah

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful stay.

The accommodations were great.

We were close to the grocery store, Forsyth Park and an awesome coffee shop. A bit of a walk to the River but that was part of our plan.

The home was beautiful, clean and well stocked. The beds were so comfortable and we loved the front porch and back courtyard.

We really hope to make it back!

Thanks for a wonderful easy trip.

Perfect place to begin my wedding day!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, stepdaughter and I stayed here during our 5 day jaunt in Savannah during which we got married! It was the perfect place to get dressed for the literal best day ever. Even the weather agreed- 75 degrees, no humidity and only puffy clouds! The location is a bit far if you plan on walking everywhere but for us it was ideal- parking galore, Forsyth Park only a couple blocks away, and the coffee shop on the corner was a perfect haven at 7 am on our wedding day, only 4 doors down. The house itself was so comfortable, really felt like home. The two king sized beds were incredibly comfortable and the kitchen/dining/living room had so much character. We have some incredible pictures taken on that gorgeous front porch, the French doors made great backdrops. My only complaint is that we didn't get to enjoy the back courtyard more during our stay. I can't imagine a better place to start my wedding day, and the perfect days before and after.

We stayed 5 days and had a great time! It was close to everything and very comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

The house was warm and charming and had enough room for my husband and I and 4 teenagers. We loved drinking coffee from the corner coffee shop on the front porch every morning and sitting by the fire on the back patio every night. It is within walking distance to everything and the neighbors are very friendly. We would definitely stay here again.
