Overview

About the property

2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 6

Built in 1890 and once a corner grocery store, the Corner Door Townhome has been completely renovated and boasts an unusual and delightfully cozy layout. The 2 bedroom, 2 bath condo features original heart pine floors and large windows, letting in plenty of light to this unique space.

Entering on the ground floor through the kitchen, you’ll find you have every modern amenity you could need. Adjacent to the kitchen is the dining area and one full bathroom, complete with a large, antique vanity with beveled mirrors. Two short flights of stairs frame either side of the dining area, leading to the bedrooms. One flight leads to the Master bedroom with a Queen bed, TV and large, full en suite bath. Interior windows, a charming architectural quirk from the renovation, overlook the kitchen. Located on its own lofted living area, the second bedroom also has a queen bed and interior windows, which overlook the dining area.

The living room, which is a short flight of stairs down from the dining area, has charming built-in bookcases, brick floors and inviting sleeper sofa. Open and eclectic, this quiet space makes for the perfect retreat after a long day.

You’ll be a quick walk to a selection of Savannah’s best restaurants, including Circa 1875 and Ta Ca Sushi & Japanese Fusion, voted Best Sushi in Savannah Magazine’s Best of Savannah 2016. If you do bring a pet to this dog-friendly home, you'll be in a great location to walk over to Mother Matilda Beasley, the only dog park in the Historic District, just a couple of blocks away.

Please note that there several sets of steps to navigate in this home, which should be taken into consideration when reserving the property for guests who may have difficulty with stairs.

Why Lucky Savannah Loves this Property:

- Spending the night in? You’ll find everything you need right across the street at the Smith Brothers Butcher Shop.

Reviewer Comments:

The townhouse has a really cool design. It is fine for a few days. There are a few things you should be aware of. 1. The townhouse is on a very busy corner street. There is a bus route that runs on Broad street. The street noise is very loud in the second bedroom. 2. The home is located in Historic Downtown Savannah. However it is on the last street before the projects. The side of Broad Street the house is on is fine. But directly across from the house is a questionable neighborhood. 3. The house has a weird strong smell. I believe the owners are aware as there were a ton of airfreshners throughout the place. However the airfreshners were empty. 4. Parking is on the street. The first night we were there we had to park around the corner and carry all of our stuff in. 5. The tvs have very limited channels. The one is the master was extremely blurry.

Cute place that was within walking distance of everything that we wanted to see. For your cooking needs bring a cookie sheet or bigger pot if you need these items, otherwise the kitchen was outfitted well. Also, bring an extra blanket for pull out couch

Reviewer Comments:

This is a great rental for four people. Location, condition of the property, amenities - all very good. All the Savannah attractions we wanted to visit were within walking distance. If you have very small children or cannot navigate steps well, this may not be the property for you. The kitchen and dining area were on one level, the living room was on another level below that, the main bathroom was on another level and the two bedrooms and second bath were on yet another level. Altogether the house doesn't have that many steps total, but be aware there are steps to get to each of the four levels. Parking is an issue. The street outside the unit has free parking but spaces are limited. Road noise is also an issue, especially for the bedroom that doesn't have an attached bathroom. I was pleased with the response of the management company, as my door code didn't work initially and the toilet in one of the bathrooms was running almost continuously. There were a few good restaurants within walking distance and a small gourmet food store was across the street.

Reviewer Comments:

Pros: The Corner Door Townhome is a lovely vacation rental that is very close to all that Savannah has to offer. We parked our car and left it the whole time we were there as we could walk to everything. The home itself was very clean & cozy & Lucky Savannah was a nice company to rent through. The freezer door was frozen shut upon our arrival and mgmt. did their best to fix is as quickly as maintenance had time to head over. Cons: The home is located on the corner of a busy intersection so we encountered a LOT of noise throughout the evening. The 2nd bedroom does not have any type of window treatment for the large windows so you have the traffic and street lights illuminating the room at night, and it lacks privacy from the kitchen area of the home and the window that opens up to the street. The master bedroom was slightly quieter and didn't have as much light but again, no type of window treatments. So if you are a runner & heading to Savannah for the race I would recommend bringing a sleep mask and some ear plugs. The rental says "pet friendly" but it should say dog friendly as other pets are not welcome.

Reviewer Comments:

My girlfriends and I stayed here during my bachelorette party and absolutely loved this cute little home. The whole layout was very open and welcoming for a smaller group. Fantastic location - far enough away from the main drag but close enough to walk to all of my favorite places. The only issue we had was that the original door code was the wrong one, but a quick call to customer service had that fixed. I would totally recommend this place and hope I can stay again in the future!
