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 Savannah

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.

Forsyth Park Delight

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a great stay in this wonderful apartment bordering Forsyth Park. Easy walking distance to the river, shopping, museums, restaurants and everything the historic district has to offer. Free parking behind the building is a nice amenity. Enjoyed local coffee shop (Sentinent Bean) and a Krogers grocery store is just a few blocks away. Owners provide all the basics needed for a short stay, plus lots of helpful local information. Apartment is exactly as pictured and described and very spacious.

Wonderful location, charming home!

  • 5 of 5

House worked perfectly for our three day stay. Location was ideal, beautiful park stretched in front of the house. Lovely homes on streets nearby made for perfect walks in neighborhood. Kitchen was cozy yet all rooms gave our family of 4 plenty of room. We ate nearly all our meals on front porch. A wonderful stay!!!

Loved this house and it's location

  • 5 of 5

We so loved our stay in this house in Savannah. It overlooks the fountain at Forsyth park which is an awesome park! There is a cafe in the park, great playgrounds, a splash pad that was so welcome in June, great walking paths and tons of grass area. Access to downtown city market and shops was amazing (straight up Bull St are several great parks to visit on your way to river). We also had quick access to Tybee Island. We had a most incredible visit. The house is super. It has wonderful old world charm with nice updates. It is so well equipped with everything you need (towels, sheets, soaps, fully equipped kitchen, comfy bed, it was all here). We didn't want to leave.

Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home in the best location. Enjoyed sitting on the porch and walking in Forsyth Park. Took the hop on hop off trolley to see the sites of Savannah, walked along River street, attended mass at the cathedral and shopped and ate some delicious southern food. Would highly recommend it.

The perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We had such an amazing stay. The pictures dont do the place justice. The bed was so comfy. I loved all of the old detail left in the house. We brought our two english bulldogs and they loved it. We could take them for walks in Forsyth park. The porch was a great hangout location tompeople watch. This is a large house that was turned into 4 apartments, and you have a shared front porch and entrance, but you may never see the other guests staying there. The walls are very thick so you dont hear anything. In the back they are stairs that go to each of the apartments. We absouletly adored the house. Thank you Jackie!
