About the property

4 Bedrooms, 2 Bathroom, Sleeps 8-10 adults - 2 children

You will know you have arrived for a true Savannah experience when you enter the home via the deep front porch. The stairs to your private top floor suite, are wide and beautiful. The staircase has a landing with built in seating under a stained glass window. Photo opportunities everywhere you look!

The front suite Queen bedroom has French doors to what may be the best porch in town for listening to concerts and relaxing as you read, people watching. This expansive top floor porch is totally private for this rental! The front suite King bedroom has a sitting area and bay windows overlooking Forsyth Park.

Important note to consider before you book: In Savannah's Historic District the homes are very close together. In order to respect all neighbors, the city asks for 'Quiet Hours' at this property from 9pm to 8am. This is particularly important for the porches and outdoor space. We want you to have a fantastic time while you are here but the quiet hours are vital for many reasons. Do not book this home if you cannot abide by the quiet hours.

There are 2 off street parking spots dedicated to your rental party behind the home. Additional cars can easily park on street. This area is not metered.

No Grills or Barbecues are allowed on the premises.

The photos on this listing are the rooms you will get. They are recent photos and we do not interchange units/photos instead we show you exactly what you are getting. Your eyes do not deceive you, this is actually 2 apartments that can be rented together so there are indeed 2 living rooms and 2 separate fully equipped kitchens! Your front suite is totally private. While there are other apartments in the house, the units do not share any rooms or bathrooms at all. You have your own keys and no other guest has access to your spacious 4 bedroom & 2 bathroom quarters. We have added another antique dressing table and the larger kitchen now has a side by side stainless refrigerator with filtered water and ice.

Please also note that at least two guests in the party must be over 30 years old.

IMPORTANT! We are totally nonrefundable - Please think about taking out trip cancellation insurance.

PLEASE NOTE - WE ACCEPT CREDIT CARDS AND E CHECKS.

YOU MUST LEAVE A CREDIT CARD ON FILE!

About jackie k

My husband and I moved here 3 years ago from NYC. We simply fell in love with the city and saw great business opportunity and a future. We love watching the changes and growth that have taken place and look forward to more positive advances in the future. This is a welcoming and vibrant city with an eye toward the future.

I have since learned that my grandparents lived here during WWI and that my mother was born here....as odd as that seems I knew immediately upon entering the city years ago, that this was the place I wanted to live. I never believed in ghosts but after this story, who knows!

jackie k purchased this apartment in 2012

Why jackie k chose Savannah

We loved the grandeur of this house overlooking Forsyth Park and thought that others might fall in love with it as well. We have been working constantly to upgrade and restore this mansion of historic value. The house was built for a family in 1888 and at the end of WWI converted into apartment housing for returning soldiers.

What makes this apartment unique

Located in the landmark historic district, it is within walking distance to all that visitors want to see and experience in our wonderful city. This house is close to everything, historically relevant, and grand in appearance. It is a romantic step back into history.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We were a family of 4 and able to spread out/work/relax/cook/and feel totally at home. We hated to leave. The apartment was so comfortable and well appointed. The owners helped us with whatever we asked. Good suggestions for dinner. The dogs loved being across the street from the park. We would definitely come back.

Beautiful and accommodating property

  • 5 of 5

Came for a bachelorette party and was desperately seeking a property that would hold up to 10 people. This property hit the nail on the head space wise and location. It was a gorgeous home and really embodied the historical aspects of Savannah. The girls I brought along with me were floored by the property and said that I probably found the best place to stay. Jackie and Barry were extremely attentive to every email I sent them and they also responded within an hour time frame, which was a huge bonus as I had many questions. I will always recommend this property and them for anyone who is traveling to Savannah. It made our stay that much more amazing. Also you can't beat the view of Forsyth Park being right across from your balcony can you.

Savannah Bound

  • 5 of 5

We brought a Gil Scout troop to Savannah and stayed in this absolutely wonder Mansion. The owners are awesome to work with and the house was beautiful, clean and a short walk to the park. The girls loved spending time at the park as well as walking into town. We were close to town but far enough out of town. Walking distance to most everything. We are planning on coming to Savannah in 2 years and if posible, staying at this house again then. I would most definately recommend that people stay there. We had a great time.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the wonderful review. The park is a perfect location, still in the Landmark Historic District but not in the middle of all the tourists. We loved having you and the girls ... they were a delight and yes, we would love to have you come back to visit us. Thank you for being great guests....

We booked the upstairs of the House for a bachelorette trip and absolutely LOVED it! Perfect location to see Savannah with a gorgeous view of the park. Jackie and Barry were very accommodating making sure we had all that we needed and answered all of our questions plus gave some suggestions.

Perfect Location for Running the Savannah Half Marathon

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Jackie and Barry for a wonderful Destination Half Girl's Weekend. There were seven of us in the house and it was roomy and comfortable. We spent a lot time on the upstairs porch watching all the brides and prom goers take pictures in Forsyth Park. We ran the half marathon on Saturday and walked to the start 15 minutes ahead of time. The race finished at the fountain and we could see and hear the finish from the house. It was walking distance to everything - restaurants, shopping, the race expo, church, the ghost tours...We couldn't have asked for a better location and warmer more helpful owners. Highly recommend!
