Perfect for our needs

  • 5 of 5

We needed a ‘home base’ to basically shower and sleep while in Savannah. When we arrived, everything was just as the pictures showed. It was clean. The Wi-fi password was on the info provided and worked fine. There is a soap/shampoo/conditioner dispenser in the shower. The soap and shampoo wasn’t refilled, but we brought our own anyway. No biggie. If we come back to Savannah, we would stay here again. It was close enough to walk everywhere, but on a quiet street. The bed was comfortable. 5 stars! Thank you

Great location, disappointing check in

  • 3 of 5

We loved the location but had a terrible first impression. It was not ready for check in until several hours after the check in time and would not have been cleaned or had clean towels/bedsheets until we called multiple times. Once we were able to get in after the cleaners left, the bed though made, did not have a fitted bottom sheet. We found one in the dryer and remade the bed. A king size comforter was left in the dryer and we dried it for several more hours. There was only one wash rag for the bath and I think it was a dish rag. The floor also needed mopping as our feet were pretty dirty when walking barefoot. The cleaners must have been in a rush. All of that did not ruin our stay as the cottage is convenient, tastefully decorated and generally well supplied. It would have been nice to have a better check in experience and follow through and follow up by the owner.

Cottage gorgeous! Communication sucked!

  • 4 of 5

The cottage was exactly as pictured. Very tastefully decorated, homey , and welcoming. Located on a quiet street and within walking distance of stores and restaurants. Our only complaint would be customer service. Communication was difficult because of no replies or inadequate information. Example was the night we arrived we were only told to punch in a code on a box. Thinking the code would unlock the door. Having no luck we called the number provided and after explaining our situation, before the lady on the phone could explain, we could hear another woman in the background screeching loudly, "it doesn't open the F******door!!! It's for the F***** key!! Welcome to Savannah?? None of the ceiling fans worked. The sofa bed was horribly lumpy and uncomfortable. We had difficulties accessing wifi because the access code we were given from Home Away was different from the actual one. Once again phone communication on it was sketchy and rude. Maybe these people need to take a communication course?? They were the only black spot on an absolutely wonderful vacation in Savannah. The cottage was roomy and clean and convenient. The main bed was comfy, the kitchen was modern and beautifully supplied. If not for the communication we would definitely have given this a five star! Thank you!

Great getaway!

  • 4 of 5

This little place is the perfect size for a few people! There were only 2 of us but it could have easily managed 4. There is plenty of room in the house and it's remarkably quiet even though it's close to a busy road. Everything you need is here and it's so close to the squares. We really enjoyed it!! The only complaint is parking. Parking is on the street but it's at a premium so be prepared for this. You may not get close to the house.
