About Owner

We are a nearing-retirement age couple from the New York City area with backgrounds in fine arts and restoration, an appreciation for eccentricity, and a limited amount of patience for shoveling snow - so Savannah is perfect for us.

Owner purchased this house in 2007

Why Owner chose Beach Institute

When our son was clever enough to pass up the blustery New York area where he was born and enrolled in the Savannah College of Art & Design (SCAD) in animation in 2004 we began thinking about escaping ourselves - at least for visits. He graduated in 2008 and has moved on to other challenges but we continue to be fascinated by Savannah, one of the most magical cities in the US.

What makes this house unique

For short and longer term visits we have stayed in quite a few Savannah hotels and a dozen or so furnished vacation rentals, so we have a good idea of what we want to find to make us comfortable, which has guided us in renovating and furnishing this house.

Beautiful house, great location

  • 5 of 5

The house Oscar adorable, very nicely furnished and the kitchen is incredible. Much fancier than in a typical rental. Of course we never cooked since thre were so many amazing restaurants in Savannah. Free parking on the street, we never moved the car as we walked everywhere.

The only negative is the house is listed for 6 people. We had six but we were charged an additional cleaning fee because we had six people. That was odd to me, I was told it was for laundry but there weren’t enough towels for 6 women and no blankets for the couch bed. We found twin blankets that worked so it was fine but be aware if you book for 6.

Over all a great rental and I definitely recommend it. The back porch and patio is adorable too. Fun city for a girls weekend!
