Welcome to Jones Gem, a Southern Demesne luxury property! Conde Nast Traveler Magazine has named Savannah one of the “Top Cities in the United States”, and our mission is to help you have a top travel experience. We accomplish this by providing a world-class accommodation in a perfect location with the intimacy and convenience of a private residence. We pride ourselves on being available 24/7 to ensure that our guests have an outstanding experience.
This exclusive property is located in the heart of Savannah’s Landmark Historic District, specifically within the trendy Design District, on renowned Jones Street, a cobblestone paved lane that Southern Living Magazine called “one of the prettiest streets in the South”. Nestled among Spanish moss draped oak trees, Jones Gem is a short walk to anything you will want to experience in downtown Savannah. Once you arrive, stash your car keys for the duration of your stay because you are just a few blocks from both the lively atmosphere of City Market and River Street in one direction and the quiet beauty of Forsyth Park in the other. Directly across the street is world-famous Ms. Wilke’s Restaurant as well as some of the most popular boutiques in the city. The St. Patrick’s Day parade route is just 1 block away, Paula Deen's Lady & Sons is a leisurely 5 minute stroll through the picturesque squares, and the wonderful beaches of Tybee Island are only a short 20 minute drive. Hilton Head Island is only 45 minutes away. We encourage you to use the 'location' tab or map to compare our location. You won't find a more centrally located property.
Jones Gem is a completely renovated 2 bedroom 2 bath flat with 1,740 square feet of living space that occupies the 2nd floor of a federal style brick mansion built in 1850. While having all of the modern amenities and cleanliness one would expect from an upscale hotel, the home’s character and ambiance remain true to the historic charm of Savannah. With antique heart pine floors, high ceilings, original moldings, crystal chandeliers and 3 fireplaces, it is also well-equipped with free Wi-Fi, cable TV, and premium fixtures, appliances and furnishings.
The large living room features original wood floors, a decorative fireplace, 48” flat screen television (cable and DVD player) and a queen-sized sleeper sofa. The updated kitchen features custom cabinetry, natural stone floors and granite counter tops with a tumbled stone back splash. The Kitchen Aid stainless steel appliances include a two-drawer dishwasher, 30-inch range, microwave, wine refrigerator, full sized refrigerator/freezer and a Keurig coffee maker (K cups included) in addition to a traditional coffee maker. There is also a Bosch front loading washer/dryer. Directly off of the kitchen is a cozy dining room that overlooks a common courtyard.
The oversized master suite boasts heart pine floors, decorative fireplace, trunk room, and a king-sized four poster bed. Connected to the bedroom is the private master bathroom, which features yet another fireplace, claw foot soaker bathtub and shower, oil-rubbed bronze fixtures and dual custom vanities with natural stone surrounds. A favorite feature of our guests is the heated natural stone floor.
The guest room has two twin beds that can be combined to make a queen, original wood floors and high ceilings. The guest bathroom, located in the hallway, has a large shower in natural stone surround with a built-in bench and also features a heated floor.
A staircase leads from an outdoor deck off of the dining room to the charming courtyard below, the perfect place to enjoy a glass of wine with friends at the end of the day.
We provide all of our guests with an iron/board, hairdryer and complimentary toiletries. We are happy to help arrange private tours, fishing charters, boat excursions, babysitters or to assist in making reservations at any of the wonderful local restaurants. Visiting Savannah for a special occasion? We will arrange to have flowers and champagne waiting for you or do our best to accommodate any other special requests you might have - just let us know!
