Overview

About the property

2 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, Sleeps 6

This recently renovated two-bedroom, one-and-a-half-bath townhome has been decorated with contemporary furnishings and original artwork, creating an uncluttered and comfortable home away from home for up to six Lucky guests.

The main entrance opens into the dining room with a table that sits six set against a wall of shelves featuring board games and books to entertain your group. Just down a short hallway is the open living space, which incorporates the kitchen, with its new stainless steel appliances and recessed bead board ceiling, and a breakfast bar. With hundreds of channels to choose from, you can enjoy a movie night or the big game on the wall-mounted 55” flat screen TV. Sliding glass doors lead out to the private, brick-paved patio, where you can relax in the shade of the landscaped greenery and pergola overhead, enjoying the sweet smell of Southern jasmine, as you dine al fresco.

Upstairs you’ll find two serene bedrooms, each with a king-sized bed with luxurious memory foam mattress. The shared bathroom has a combined tub and shower. Both bedrooms have ample closet space, and there is a washer/dryer in the hall between them so you can pack light, even for extended stays.

Located just three blocks from iconic Forsyth Park, you’ll love strolling through the Farmer’s Market on Saturdays, or one of many festivals hosted there throughout the year. You’ll be just down the street from the only full service beer, wine and spirit shop and full-size grocery store in downtown Savannah.

As a bonus, fans of “The Book,” (what Savannahians call Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil) will be sure to visit the nearby Mercer Williams House, Clary’s, and other locations made famous by the now legendary story. If you’re looking for a real “live like a local” experience, book your dates at this unique vacation rental property today.

Reviewer Comments:

Upon our arrival, opened the door and smiled! The home was very open and well lit. The kitchen was just the right size. The beds were very nice and comfy. The back porch was amazing! We used the grill several times, what a nice convenient surprise as well. My kids had the best time and were very well rested each day. I will definitely be returning to this home! You cannot go wrong with this choice!

Reviewer Comments:

This was our family first time visiting Savannah and through our online research and looking for a place that would accommodate three teenagers myself and my wife we looked to rent a condo and cane across Lucky Savannah. Based on the reviews we chose to go with them and rented the writers Repose on Gaston street that everyone we told while there said that is a beautiful street you are staying on! And it was the Comp was nice decorated and very clean and comfortable, we felt very safe slept good st night and could walk to a lot of the most desirable places to visit in the historic downtown Savannah area. We already know we will be back and when we do we be looking to Luck Savannah for our accommodations as far as where to stay!

Reviewer Comments:

The property was somewhat clean. There kitchen counter tops still had food crumbs on them. The bathroom had hair in the bathtub. I requested an early Check in at 2PM which I had to pay an extra fee for. I have booked and stayed at several properties through vrbo and have never had to pay an extra fee for an early Check In. I disagree with the fee because I feel the property was not very clean. On the Lucky Savannah app instructions stayed you could park in the back parking lot which I was then later instructed I would be towed from. I was surprised that an employee showed up from Lucky Savannah a few minutes after i arrived and walked through the door. I felt this was a little too soon for the employee to be arriving to ask how was everything. The owner who was staying next door to the unit also opened his front door and to watch us every time we walked into our front door. I felt this was strange and we were being watched. Overall the property was okay, but if I return to Savannah I will most likely look somewhere else to stay.

Reviewer Comments:

The house was lovely! The rooms were spacious and beds were comfortable. The private courtyard was so nice. The location was perfect for walking to all of our areas of interest. Savannah is a beautiful city! The only drawback was that the cleaning service could have done a better job. The shutters and other wood trim were quite dusty, and the area surrounding the tub had some mildew. I would definitely recommend this home to friends who might visit Savannah.

Reviewer Comments:

Pictures were as described. Beautiful house on a quiet street. Well stocked kitchen and plenty of towels. Extremely easy check-in and check-out. About a 20 minute walk to the city market and river walk - never felt unsafe and we loved taking different routes to explore new streets and squares. Would absolutely stay here again and are looking forward to our next visit to Savannah.
