About the property

2 Bedroom 2 Bath Luxury Flat In Perfect Location

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 at Southern Demesne 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 (where President Obama dined during his recent visit) 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 15 minute drive. 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 countertops with a tumbled stone backsplash. 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). 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 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!

The history and charm of Savannah is what makes it one of the most popular tourist destinations in America. When booking your stay, be sure to look for a property that will enhance your experience by offering the historic feel that makes Savannah so special. Thank you for considering Jones Gem!

About Southern Demesne LLC

Southern Demesne, LLC is owned and operated by the Taylor family; Michael and his 2 amazing children, Will & Noland. Michael has lived in Savannah for almost two decades. After visiting the Hostess City for a long weekend in 1998, he fell in love with it's beauty and charm and decided to make it his permanent home.

As avid travelers, we have spent extended periods of time overseas and have been to some of the most exotic places on the planet, so we have a unique perspective on hospitality. One of the reasons we purchased this property was because we absolutely love hosting guests and enjoy introducing others to our fascinating hometown. We strive to provide our guests with the same discriminating level of accommodations and experience that we expect when we travel.

We live less than 3 miles from the property and stand ready to provide whatever service we can to make sure your stay is wonderful. Our goal is to provide you with a 5-star memory so that you'll leave a 5-star review.

Southern Demesne LLC purchased this condo in 2014

Why Southern Demesne LLC chose Historic District - South

We chose to purchase this property because of it's ideal location and it's true-to-Savannah charm. Jones Street has long been considered one of the most exclusive addresses in town. Very few streets in America offer such character. When the opportunity to own a piece of such storied history presented itself, we couldn't resist.

What makes this condo unique

While there are many nice vacation properties available in Savannah, many of them offer nothing unique. Because so many properties are in recently finished loft spaces or in newly constructed complexes, they are no different than thousands of other condos in any city in America. Folks come to Savannah for its unique history. Why would you come to a place for its charm and character but stay in a property that lacks it?

And don't forget about location. Stay too far down town and you'll end up battling unbearable noise and impossible parking. Stay too far South and you'll be inconvenient to shops and restaurants. Jones Gem offers the best of both worlds - a leisurely 10 minute walk through beautiful squares to either end of the historic district but with the peace and quiet of an upscale residential area. We encourage you to use the 'location' tab and map to compare Jones Gem to other properties.

Great location & beautiful property!

  • 5 of 5

After our first stay at Jones Gem, my friends and I decided this was the only place we would stay when visiting Savannah. After our third stay here this weekend, we still feel the same. It's the perfect size for our group of 6, feels like home away from home, and the location is perfect! We are just a short walk away from all the hottest spots in Savannah. The place is always clean, well furnished, and nicely decorated. The owner responds promptly to requests and questions. Best place to stay in Savannah!

Excellent location - beautiful property

  • 5 of 5

I have given this property a 5 Star because it was a beautiful, charming condo in an excellent location. I would definitely stay here again. However there are a couple of things the owners need to change. Upon our arrival we could not get into the property with the code provided. The lock box was stuck and would not open for us to get the key. It was threatening rain and the luggage for 4 was stacked on the porch. We called the owner and had to wait almost an hour for a return call. The downstairs rental let us into the building but initially the electronic lock on the condo would not work. The door is old and sensitive. I continued to try to get it open and finally the code plus just the right turn of the handle got us in. At this point the owner still had not called back. By the time he called back, we had settled into this beautiful property and my anger was gone. However, I do not think renters should have to deal with this sort of problem. There has to be a lock box that does not rust and there has to be something that can be done with the entry door. We would not dare leave without the key as we could not trust the electronic lock. The owner had told us where an alternate set of keys were hidden. Again, this level of property should not have these problems. It was not a good start. One more thing to change is the shower in the master bath. It is a beautiful bathroom with a not so great shower. We loved this propeerty but I would not recommend it for seniors. It is located on the second floor and stepping into and out of the old fashioned tub in the master could be dangerous for some seniors.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review and we are glad you enjoyed your stay. We apologize for the inconvenience you had upon arrival. The exterior lock box has been replaced with a brand new one. And the electronic interior lock has been thoroughly checked to ensure that it is working. The proper code and a simple turn of the knob is all it takes, as you kindly ackmowledged in your review. Thanks again for your suggestions and your visit to Jones Gem!

The property is awesome and in a great location.

  • 4 of 5

The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is due to the shower in the master bathroom. It's an old tub fitted for a shower and at times the hose didn't stay on the handle and water went everywhere. We still enjoyed our stay and had a great girl's getaway! The condo is roomy, tastefully decorated, comfortable and clean. It was a great place to relax after an active day of sightseeing.

Be careful when selecting a location! Many properties tout their location as being ideal. However, if you are staying close to the City Market, River St or Broughton St areas (north), you will likely have late night noise, young partygoer crowds and parking difficulties (even if you are offered a free space, it will likely be blocks away from your property in a city garage). If you stay near Forsyth Park and the Victorian District (south), you will have a long walk to the areas above and will be very close to the 'transitional' areas of Savannah. Jones Gem is situated perfectly in between the two, offering the peace and quiet of an upscale residential area but within a 10 minute walk of both ends of the historic district. Compare our location to other properties using the 'location' tab or map. You won't find a more centrally located property. Be wary of properties that don't show their location.
