About the Property

Urban Cabin Apartment

Short Term Vacation Rental Certificate # 15-000859-BA. *** Please read the addendum to the listing description below regarding the city of Savannah short term rental ordinance and the required sales tax (7%) and hotel occupancy tax (6%). VRBO will show a line item that includes these taxes.

This is your own bright and open apartment in a private garden setting, all centrally located in Savannah's Victorian district, within the Thomas square neighborhood.

The best description is an urban cabin. I strive to keep it as open as possible for less clutter and still provide you with a comfortable stay. There are practical, modern elements mixed with vintage pieces that hold their own in the space. There is a galley kitchen with a fridge and stovetop oven. The windows provide for great natural light all day, and for any afternoon thunderstorms it's the best view on the property. The garden is expansive and very peaceful. It's situated behind a large colonial revival house (1914), and both sit on a 1/4 acre lot. There are 70 ft tall water oaks that shade the property. And open as it is, it feels very much like a private retreat.

If the space is available i will give a discount to visiting writers for longer stays of a week or more. If you are looking to book for a month or longer, i can also provide a discounted rate. Please inquire further when you are looking to book.

Just a few blocks south of Forsyth Park, it is within very close walking distance of Cotton & Rye, Blowin' Smoke, Butterhead Greens, Foxy Loxy, Elizabeth's, Local 1110, American Legion, Betty Bombers, Le Chai, Sentient Bean, Perc, Green Truck, and Brighter Day. It is also in close proximity to the Starland District (galleries, Starland Cafe, Back in the Day, Starlandia and the Wormhole), the Florence, and a few of SCAD's major buildings, including Arnold Hall. The main central library is 3 blocks away. There are 2 older bikes to use for your stay, and a large garden and patio to enjoy.

This is as central as you can get south of the historic squares, less the congestion. There is a city bus line that stops on the corner, but otherwise it is 5 minutes by car from here to river street, 15 minutes by bike (with a dedicated bike lane on opposite corner), and about half hour if your hoofing it (unless you stop for a beer to escape the midday sun).

For Tybee visitors, it is a few blocks from victory drive, and from there it takes about 25 minutes to drive. I do have beach chairs, large towels, and a cooler for you to use.

There will be a small variety of breakfast items provided, usually including organic or locally sourced coffee, milk, juice, eggs, cereal, and some beverages.

(note: there are shades and curtains on every window for privacy. I intentionally edit out any televisions, but wifi is provided in case you want to stream movies or music on your own wireless device.)

If there is no availability on the calendar, you may contact me regarding the upstairs unit.

Thank you to my guests, Mike and Olivia from Chicago, for providing me with beautiful new listing photographs. Most all in the series were taken by Mike Killion from Chicago.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: Hello all -- Having lived and traveled all over the country and a good deal abroad, I can truly say Savannah is hands down one of the most beautiful towns anywhere ... I still keep calling it home. I can be a recluse even in a crowd, and this quality is what drew me to my house of 13 years -- it provides a wooded privacy in a centralized, urban setting. Once you get your keys and I get you oriented, I'm pretty hands off -- but always happy to answer any questions or share some wine. You'll understand why this place is a secret hideaway in the middle of everything.
