About Mary Pizzimenti
My husband and I enjoy spending time in Savannah as we love the southern hospitality, friendliness of the residents and beauty of the city.
Why Mary Pizzimenti chose Beach Institute
We love Savannah and all of its history and charm. The genuine friendliness of the residents and visitors is second to none. It has great restaurants, entertainment, shopping, nearby beaches and countless other activities. With some 200 city-wide festivals and events each year there is always something to do and someplace to go.
What makes this Condo unique
Place yourself in Savannah's rich history. This property was completely renovated to help preserver the historic charm and significance that keeps Savannah a unique and beautiful city. The exterior maintains the period correct architecture while the interior has all the modern conveniences and comforts. The original structure has been described as Vernacular Neoclassical Revival, local interpretation of a combination of Georgian Revival and Edwardian architecture. With its pediment porches and two-story porticos supported by round columns, the building has been formally identified as being of 'significant value as a Classical Revival apartment house. Originally set aside as 'Garden Lots' in General Oglethorpe's original town plan of Savannah, the land would become known as the Beach Institute Neighborhood. Early records find that in 1782 the land, named Fairlawn Plantation, was a working rice plantation. In 1853 with the advent of the Savannah & Albany Railroad, construction of Savannah's East Side began in earnest. Workers for the railroad were in need of housing and developers capitalized on that need by developing land tracts slated for building lots. Of interest, is that a single African American woman, Mary Ellen Richardson, wholly developed the property. She owned the property from 1868 until her death in 1929. Somewhere between 1898 and 1916 the original structure was replaced with the building that stands to this day. Mary Richardson's also built the Carpenter Italianate row house as well as a single-family dwelling in the same area.

Clean and comfortable
Modern and Fun Savannah Stay
Great spot! Close walking distance and cheap cab rides to the river/attractions!
We loved it!
Great location! VERY clean! Plenty of space for our group. It is a great renovation of an older house, so noise could be an issue, depending on your neighbors for your stay. We could hear ours, but it wasn’t overwhelming. We loved the super-soft sheets as well as the photos and story of the renovation of the historic house. Overall, we’re trying to figure out when we can come back!
Everything we hoped for
The location worked so well being close to the Dot bus stop by Forsyth Park & historical district. It couldn't have worked better for the 5 of us. Very clean with new appliances. Having the washer & dryer was so helpful. Mary was so helpful and prompt at getting back to us to answer questions , etc. Highly recommend.
Beautiful home and Mary was great to work with. We would stay here again!
We were very impressed.
The accommodations were comfortable and it felt like home. We would definitely stay again and would recommend this location to all our family and friends. Thank you for managing such a wonderful place.
Easy access to everything. Nearby grocery (Kroger Market), free shuttle service stop nearby. Free non-metered street parking in front of the unit. Easy walk to Forsyth Park.
