Overview

About the property

King Bed, Full Kitchen & Laundry, Ideal Location!

This garden level apartment is part of one of the oldest homes in Savannah! Formerly known as the William J. Spencer House, the home you see from the street, a three story 1880s Italianate residence, actually started its life sometime between 1799 and 1809 as a two-story Federal style building.

We accept Visa, MasterCard and Discover

The ground level guest quarters has its own private entry, a King size bed, full size private laundry, equipped kitchen, pullout sofa bed, PRIME LOCATION at a great price and no stairs! Walk out your door and be immersed in Savannah's gorgeous Historic District!!

This historic garden level (also known as the first floor) apartment is a convenient, efficient home base for your Savannah getaway. And it is an amazing value!

Parking is metered at this location. Weekends are free at meters (from 5pm Friday until 8am Monday) but guests who come for weeknight stays with a vehicle will want to purchase a City of Savannah Day Pass which is $12 for 48 hours or $7 for 24 hours. This pass covers meters and City Garages so it's a great bang for your buck! You can get the pass from the Visitors Information Center or, uniquely for this rental, pick one up from the 17Hundred90 Inn. Ask Mary about a different parking pass for extended stays (one month or longer).

This is an ideal spot for anyone who is flying in and wishes to do without a vehicle. Savannah is a walking city and this location is smack dab in the middle of walker's paradise!

Check in is 3pm or later the day of arrival, checkout is by 11am on the day of departure. Trip cancellations with more than 30 days notice will receive a refund less $50 cancellation fee. Within 30 days we do not give refunds. Trip cancellation insurance will be offered online if you use the VRBO payment system.

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.

Convenient, walkable, clean

  • 4 of 5

The property was clean and seemed well kept, and was a short walk to everything. We easily walked to the car side of Forsyth Park and down to the river.

An ideal location and aptly named property...truly a Walker's Paradise.

  • 5 of 5

This property is the basement floor of a very old house located a few short blocks from the Savannah River. We were able to score between seven and ten miles of walking the two full days in Savannah. The property has a comfortable kingsize bed. Due to the location, we really did not spend much time in the apartment. Instead we enjoyed the sights and sounds of Savannah. Good food, very friendly people and a gorgeous environment made this one of the finest short vacations we've ever had. We will return to Savannah and to this property soon.

Close to everything

  • 4 of 5

First the pros:

LOCATION. You can walk to everything you need and want within minutes. It is great to be able to zip back to the apartment and take a nap in the cool on a hot summer day. It is down the street from 17hundred90, the best pub to visit in the city. You must go there if you visit Savannah.

CLEAN. There was no problem with cleanliness other than the very old carpet. (I would place hardwood down and a nice rug if I were the owner)

PARKING: Get a parking pass from the city and park right in front of the house. It was great. We didn't move the car.

FAIRLY SPACIOUS. For three people, there was enough space. One bathroom is always hard when your family is used to having their own. It's such a private space to share, but we made it work. We ran out of towels but washed them in the washer and dryer, so no problem.

KITCHEN: A fully stocked kitchen with full sized coffee maker is provided. I loved the beautiful teacups in the cupboard!

Now the cons:

DOGS: The number one complaint I have was the constant, incessant barking of the dogs upstairs. We brought along a white noise machine after reading the reviews from others, or we would have gotten no sleep. The dogs bark every time someone walks by the house, and in a city like Savannah, that is all night long. They are quite cute sitting up in the window spying on us, though.

CLEANING SUPPLIES: Under the kitchen sink there is a dish drain with only a very used old sponge to clean the dishes. I washed a glass with a paper towel before using it.

SMELL: If you have never smelled an older house, you might be shocked. When we first opened the door, it smelled like the owner from 1809 had died somewhere in there. It is an old, basement, musty, almost (rat) smell. We opened the window when we first arrived to try to air it out, but in doing so, I think we let in a few mosquitos. Once you have been in the place for a bit, you get used to the smell, but each time you go out and come back in, you smell it again. If they would replace the old worn carpet with hardwood, It might take care of the problem.

All in all, you are not going to get the experience in any hotel room that you get staying in this historic old home. I would definitely stay again, that is, if they would have me back after my constructive criticism. So take some Fabreeze, a white noise machine because bark collars are cruel, and bring some extra cleaning towels.

Nice and cozy. Close to everything.

My family and I enjoyed our stay. The property is right in the historic district and is close to everything! There is a bit of an old-house smell, but you get over it right away. I would stay in this place again.
