Overview

About the property

One Bedroom, One Bathroom, Courtyard, King Bed + Pullout Sofa

Don't pay for upgrades you don't need! This apartment has the basics covered. It is spacious, it is clean, it has a King size bed and the location is fantastic! The address is in the Landmark Historic District on the prettiest street in town!

Garden level apartment of a c1879 Savannah brick townhouse! No stairs. Full kitchen. Linens provided. Parking is free and easy on the street, no permit required.

Walk to Clary's Cafe or Firefly Cafe for meals within 3 blocks of this home. Centrally located, Forsyth Park is less than 0.4 miles south and River Street is less than 0.7 miles to the north!

No more frustrations with neglected or incorrect calendars!! This and all of my other listing calendars are up to date at all times since I exclusively use the HomeAway/VRBO payment system to book the property and each new reservation is instantly added upon payment. If your dates are showing as open that means they really are open.

If you don't mind paying a higher price and prefer to have a dishwasher and more contemporary surroundings please consider listing 345323 or ask Mary for other alternatives.

Please note, at some point in the 1900's the wall on the West side of the house which originally had arched openings into a side garden was fully bricked in to make a solid wall. Therefore 2 of the main windows in the apartment look out into a bricked-in corridor instead of onto the street. This makes for a very sound sleeping environment in the bedroom! But it also cuts back on natural light in the unit. This is part of the reason the rate on this rental is 'budget friendly'. We do not want guests to be unpleasantly surprised when they look out the West facing windows, so we are disclosing this information to consider before booking.

Cancelation Policy: With more than 30 days notice you may cancel and receive a full refund less a $50 cancelation fee. Within 30 days no refunds will be give. Trip cancelation insurance will be offered by VRBO/HomeAway when you pay.

When you book you will download a rental agreement with the address. When you arrive a notebook in the apartment will have the wifi password and other important information.

About Mary Anderson

Hi I am Mary! I handle the reservations for this garden apartment on behalf of the owner, Julian. The owner is a dear friend and neighbor of mine. His main house is listing 437880. I am also a licensed real estate agent in the state of Georgia.

Mary Anderson purchased this apartment in 1985

Why Mary Anderson chose Savannah

The owner has lived in Savannah since the 80's and has strong ties to the community here, is involved with the St. Patrick's Day parade and other city events. He loves going to the 1790 pub. His Irish and Scottish ancestors were some of the original settlers in the low country (in South Carolina).

What makes this apartment unique

Stately 3 story classic Savannah home, representative of true downtown living and the amazing solid craftsmanship one can rarely find in modern day homes. Ideal location, great price.

Guestbook comments from the manager

The apartment was exactly as described, so no surprises. Easy access and plenty of street parking was available. Very clean with basic utensils to cook a simple meal. Loved the washer and dryer, because we got to wash the running gear from the day's events (Savannah marathon). The apartment was very clean and stocked with supplies. Very well located and we were able to walk pretty much everywhere. Great place.

Amazing property!

  • 5 of 5

My sister and I came to Savannah for a weekend getaway and this place was perfect! We drove my car and were able to get a parking spot right in front of the house and left it there the whole weekend without worry. The apartment was perfect in size and location being only a couple of blocks from river street. Will definitely be staying here again when going back!

Comfortable

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I enjoy older places with character. We both slept really well even though there was a busy street right outside. I realize it costs a lot to upgrade a kitchen but it would be worth it in this unit because you could get more money per night. Dishwashers have really spoiled us. We also enjoyed walks through the neighborhood checking out the architecture. I would have given a five star rating if the kitchen was more modern.

Owner's Response: This reviewer and anyone who is willing to pay a higher rate for a nicer kitchen has a wide array of choices including many others on this same block. I manage 65 total homes and approximately 60 of them are fully renovated and updated but a few are budget properties like this and are described as such. If the owner chooses to do an expensive kitchen remodel in the future then this apartment would join the rest of the more expensive units, sure, but for now this is such a nice opportunity for budget conscious guests to save. The owner just replaced the entire HVAC system here on July 5, 2017, and after that expense no other updates are planned. Future guests, please choose this property with the full awareness that you did so to save money, bypassing more expensive options, and try to keep that in mind as you stay and write your review. We know it is not a 5 star hotel but we strive to get 5 stars from guests when ranking it relative to the price and location. We urge those who want to do some cooking in a fancy kitchen while on vacation and prefer using a dishwasher to look for a unit that has those things. Just ask!

Cannot wait to come back!!!

  • 5 of 5

I came to Savannah with my daughter and her husband and son to enjoy the town and Tybee Island. We were all so happy with our accommodations! Plenty of room and such historic charm! We were able to cook dinner and enjoy lounging in the LR and also the bedrooms were such a good size!

Thank you for everything Mary! We will be back next year!!

Everything you need!

  • 5 of 5

This little apartment unit had everything we needed to have a wonderful stay in Savannah on one on the prettiest streets in the country! It is also close to lots of attractions so that you can walk or if you do decide to drive, there is always somewhere nearby to park when you get back. The only negative thing I can say is it is a dark unit but it is a basement apartment so I was expecting that and for the price, you can't beat it! Thanks Mary for a wonderful stay.

Perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect apartment for a weekend getaway. There is a lot within walking distance, or just a short cab ride away. The apartment was clean and comfortable. My only recommendation is that if you are hot natured, bring a fan because the AC in the apartment does not get very cold.
