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 apartment 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.

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.

This apartment has a wonderful view of Forsyth Park. It was very comfortable. They had everything you needed. They had paper towels salt and pepper and a little extras you don’t always expect to get. They were very accommodating as well. We will come back again!

Overlooking Forsyth Park

  • 5 of 5

We loved this 1888 built Victorian home. This was accented with several antiques in the home and has the original floors. The view of the beautiful fountain from the 3 10 foot widows was awesome! Having the park across the street was also convenient for our fur baby, and for just taking a stroll. We loved sitting in the large, covered porch and just looking at the 30 acre park and all the oak trees with Spanish moss on them.

Home is very cozy and spacious with a small but well equipped kitchen including a washer/dryer combo. There has a comfortable king size bed. There is also plenty of closet space. The house is very conveniently located with about a 15 minute walk up Whitaker Street to River Street on the Savannah River, one of the must see's. Or you can walk down the center of Forsyth and hit a number of the famous town squares on the way to main street. The house also has central air/heat which was nice. Also supplied in the house are trash bags, coffee, creamer, sweetener, baggies, salt/pepper, Pam spray, filter water and dish/hand soaps.

Must see's/do's are St John's Cathedral, Trolley tour (get on you can hop on and off), Pink House (make reservations), Paula Deen's The lady and Sons (make reservations), Savannah River Cruise, the City Market and just walking to see all the architecture of the homes. There are lots of other restaurants, pubs and other things we didn't get to visit while we were there. In five days, we used the car twice, once to go to dinner since we were dressed up and it was cold, and once to ride around to find Christmas lights.

Jackie the owner is local and very accessible. If you need anything just ask!

Thank you Jackie for a wonderful stay!

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!
