Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Lovely apartment in a perfect location! We really enjoyed our stay here. There was some muffled yipping of a little dog that was kind of annoying a couple times, but other than that it was very quiet even though it is right on the street.

Owner's Response: The owners do live upstairs in the main house with their 2 small dogs. They have a totally separate entrance but sometimes you can hear the dogs. We try hard to keep that limited to the daytime. Thank you to all of our lovely guests who enjoy their stay at this super convenient spot in downtown Savannah and leave their feedback.

Yapping pup and the smell of mildew will keep you up

  • 2 of 5

The location was beyond awesome! But.. We left and all our clothes, luggage, etc. smell like the mildew aroma this location has. It is so strong it gave us headaches. There is also a small dog who will not stop barking. So if you want peace and quiet I would suggest against this location. We even left early and called around for a hotel. The price, the smell, and the dog are enough to make us not want to stay here again or recommend it. We spent more than half our vacation at a hotel and it was half the price of here and way better accommodations.

exceptional service

  • 3 of 5

we arrived Friday afternoon, 5:15 or so, the unit was "stuffy" at best. We turned on the AC & left for dinner. Upon return from dinner & a walk, the unit was still running, but still stuffy & muggy, so I emailed the manager. 5 minutes later (this is NOT an exaggeration), there was a knock on the door & the maintenance people (2 of them) were there. A couple of minutes later the owner arrived. The wiring problem was corrected in less than an hour-exceptional service!! While not fancy, the unit is adequate. The location was great for us.

Very nice

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in the Walker's Paradise even though we were there for less than 24 hours. As there were 2 of us a second luggage stand would have been nice instead of bringing a dinning chair into the bedroom. Bed was very comfy. Paying to park on the street was pricey & getting up early to re-feed the meter in the morning isn't always what one wants when on holiday. Of course you can pay to park in their other hotel round the corner if space is available. We met the owners briefly, they were charming & helpful. We would stay again but only if we can visit much longer next time!

Walker's Paradise, yes! However, the air return can keep you awake at night.

  • 4 of 5

This apartment was great for being convenient to the tourist parts of town. It's in a nice, quiet area and really close to bars and restaurants. My husband and I did have some trouble sleeping since the air return is right by the bed and we had to use the heater. Even with waking in the night, we would stay here again. We did hear the dog that previous reviewers mentioned but it was only during the day and only one tiny bark, easy peasy. For an old building, this unit is maintained and has everything you could need for a weekend trip!

great location and spacious accomodation

  • 4 of 5

This was perfectly located for access to great walking in the historic district. The apartment was generally comfortable with a spacious living room and bedroom. Only problem in the bedroom was that the heat blasted right onto one side of the bed (and outside temps were unusually cold so we had to have heat). Kitchen and bathroom were both well equipped, and very clean. Overall, this is a great place to stay!
