About the Property

4 Bedrooms, 2 Bathroom, Sleeps 8

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.
IMPORTANT-At least 2 renters have to be over the age of 30, or leave a totally refundable insurance deposit of $1500.
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, barbecues, candles, etc. 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 suite is totally private. While there are other apartments in the house, the units do not share any rooms or bathrooms.. 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.

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

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: My husband and I moved here 5 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 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!

Why the Owner Chose Historic District - South, Savannah, GA, USA:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
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.
