About jackie k

My husband and I relocated from NYC, seeking a slower pace within a city atmosphere. Savannah was perfect. Wonderful weather, beautiful architecture and the friendliest of people. Bonus - we are 15 minutes from the ocean.

jackie k purchased this house in 2012

Why jackie k chose Historic District - South

We fell in love with this wonderful city and all it had to offer. This home represented the grand homes of the past. We felt all our visitors would be able to experience a piece of Savannah's history with all the modern amenities.

What makes this house unique

Perfectly charming southern home

  • 5 of 5

Best location for all Savannah has to offer. Parking space is a plus. We loved the view of the park and fountain. The front porch is a great place to relax and soak up the atmosphere. Hope to visit Savannah (and this home) again! The owners are very accommodating. We had all we needed. The tips on restaurants and shopping were very helpful.

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

The location was great! The house had everything we needed. The bed was so comfortable! The pull-out sofa, not as comfy, but it's a sofa.

The owner was quick to respond every time I messaged her. I would definitely stay here again!

Great location, but property was run down and not comfortable to hang out in.

Owner's Response: So sorry you were not comfortable. The apartment is in a house that was built in 1880. It is filled with antiques as well as modern conveniences. Its almost 1,00 s.f. would seem to allow you room to relax. If there is a suggestion you would like to make, we would love to hear it. Oddly, and I guess because people's tastes vary so much, our last guests did not want to leave and loved everything.

Great location, roomy property

  • 4 of 5

This property was delightfully located across from Forsyth Park, which offered a beautiful way to start each day. Since Savannah is so walkable, the location was good for seeing the downtown and historic areas as well. If you are not a walker, it is about a $6 Lyft ride. The only criticism is the bed and pillows. They have definitely seen better days, and though we were able to sleep, it wasn't ideal. As I get older, this becomes more important. But I would still recommend this property. We especially thought it great when the owner came by to check on us when there was a tornado warning in effect. Being from Oregon, we needed some guidance on this.

Owner's Response: Pillows can be replaced in 5 minutes. So sorry you didn't mention the problem. We ask our clients to tell us immediately if there is a problem, especially one that is so easily rectified. Because reviews are so important to our business, we went thru the history of the mattress you objected to. It is 2 1/2 years old, it is a pillow top. It certainly is not old or need replacing. If you have a problem with a property it would be so much nicer to call us or any owner/manager. We are always happy to try to help and in this case all we had to do was turn the mattress over. This is our livelihood and we work very hard to maintain our reputation. Why be unhappy for 4 days and then publicly complain, instead of getting the problem solved. It may be better for you in the future to ask if the beds are firm, as seemingly this seems to be an ongoing theme in your reviews.
