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 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!

What about parking? Although there is no private parking, there are always ample spaces available on the street in front of the property. You may also purchase a visitor's pass from the city parking office for just $12 that will allow you to park at any metered space in the city for free for 48 hours. That also comes in handy should you choose to drive anywhere else downtown.
Are there stairs? This is a 2nd floor unit. There is a set of exterior stairs that leads to the building's front door. You then ascend a set of interior stairs to access the unit. The pictures show both sets of stairs.

About Michael Taylor
Jones Gem is owned and operated by the Taylor family; Michael and his 2 amazing children, Will & Noland. Michael has lived in Savannah for 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.

We strive to provide our guests with the same discriminating level of accommodations and experience that we expect when we travel. We live in Savannah 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.
Michael Taylor purchased this Condo in 2014
Why Michael Taylor 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.

Beautiful,clean, spacious, comfortable...very Savannah!
My 5 college girlfriends and I stayed here for our annual get together and could not have been happier! The house itself is very historic Savannah looking on a beautiful oak tree lined cobblestone street. There was more than enough room for all of us with a nice little deck and courtyard. Bathrooms were great for a lot of girls getting ready at once and separate toilet areas as well. Very clean and tastefully decorated. Check in was a breeze and location was far enough from the action to be quiet but an easy walk to the river for fun nights out. Be advised there are 2 flights of stairs to the apartment, not an issue for us but someone with mobility issues might struggle. Would stay here again in a heartbeat!
Just loved the Gem! Very clean and beautiful. Great location. Would highly recommend!
Beautiful condo with everything you need...just like being at home!
We came to Savannah for a long weekend. Had plenty of room for us and our 2 adult children. Condo is beautifully decorated and the owner has thought of everything you may need to make you feel right at home. We will definitely stay here again when in Savannah!
My two adult daughters and I spent 4 nights in this charming condo. The master bedroom and bath are quite lovely. The overall unit is spacious, comfortable and inviting. The appliances are high end, the kitchen is user friendly. The location can not be beat. The check in and check out process was quick and efficient. The bottle of wine was a surprise, a nice welcome! The stairs could be a problem for some. However, bear in mind that I am closing in on 80 years very quickly, had no problem with the stairs. The girls did have to carry my luggage up and down on arrival and departure. Thank you, thank you, thank you! Theresa, Leslie & Tara
Really a great place!
For us older folks, the tub/shower in the master suite was difficult to get in and out of. Parking around the property was pretty easy.
Beautiful restored, second floor, very spacious 2 bedroom condo. The location was the best. Many quality restaurants were just a short walk away. Parking was no problem on the street.
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.
