We typically do not rent Friday without Saturday. Do not send a reservation request for 1 night weekend stay without injuiring first. Thanks.

Beds-on-Bull is in the trendy hipster neighborhood of SoFo. The South of Forsyth district is just that - the area south of Forsyth Park up to Victory Drive. We are the location of the 'Best Coffee House in Savannah - Foxy Loxy', Back in the Day Bakery, Elizabeth's on 37th, Green Truck Pub, The Vault Asian Fusion. Blowin' Smoke Restaurant, and more! We have 2 Bedrooms: 1 King, 1 Queen, and a queen air mattress. ( With ample space to set it up)

Our fabulous 1500 square foot home (circa 1902) is located in the heart of the SOFO district directly across the street from Thomas Square and one of Savannah's architectural gems- the Bull Street library (circa 1913). It is very spacious with 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a great room, laundry, and a full service kitchen. A complete renovation was completed in 2015 including all new plumbing, AC, electrical, insulation, fixtures and furnishings. So you need not worry about your comfort or safety. (Many of Savannah's older homes have very old electrical and plumbing and zero insulation- so this is a definite 'upgrade'!)

LOCATION: The SOFO district is the area south of Forsyth park. It provides a taste of true local culture in Savannah. SoFo businesses take pride in creating foods and products that are handcrafted and unique. A must-do for any Savannah vacation and worth supporting by locals. Come enjoy this wonderfully quirky area of Savannah that also includes the Starland District and Victorian District. SOFO has been written up in the New York Times, Southern Living, and Delta Sky Miles Magazine. We are 2 doors down from the Foxy Loxy Print Shop and Cafe : a hot spot for local art students where they sip coffee in the morning, graze at lunch, enjoy bakery items in the afternoon and party in the courtyard at night! We are also 2 doors from Butterheads Cafe, with great vegetarian delights. Also within a 2-3 minute car ride are Elizabeth's on 37th, The Florence, and Back in the Day Bakery. Of course a 3-5 minute drive will get you to the heart of the downtown district. Or you can walk about 10-15 minutes straight down Bull Street to Forsyth Park and then take a free shuttle throughout downtown.

ACCOMMODATIONS: One bedroom has a king sized bed, the other has a queen bed. Additionally, there is a queen air mattress with space for set up and linens. There is a dining table that seats 6. Each bedroom has a 42' flat screen TV and the great room has a 55' smart flat screen TV. By local ordinance, a 2 bedroom dwelling CANNOT rent to more than 6 adults. You can however have as many children stay as you'd like:)

PARKING: Ample off street parking provided.

Why John and Rocel Lindsey chose Metropolitan

We just finished a complete renovation recently . ALL new everything! Plumbing, electrical, air conditioning, furniture, kitchens, bathrooms , parking area, etc. Like a new 1902 house :) So the condition is perfect. We love the location for people watching the Savannah College of Design art students who attend class 100 feet away and love to frequent Foxy Loxy Coffee House 90 feet away. Butterhead Greens Café is also just 70 feet away. This is also a great location if you want to do more than just walk around downtown - like access Tybee Beach, Wormsloe Plantation, Bonaventure Cemetery, and Skidaway State Park. We really encourage you to see more of the surrounding area - the scenery is breathtaking once you get out to the low country tidal rivers, creeks, and marshes.

What makes this house unique

Free bike excursion at The Landings on Skidaway Island with 40 miles of paths, lots of wildlife, and stunning marshes.

We very much enjoyed it. It is the perfect, cosmopolitan blend of historic and chic. Very clean and comfortable, with every detail on point. The location is perfect, for both people watching and as a starting point for many interesting venues within walking distance. I absolutely recommend starting your day with an amazing danish from the little coffee shop literally two doors down. I see in the reviews many complaints about hearing the upstairs tends to happen, most especially in historic homes. We had 3 men, a woman and a baby above us during our stay. I wont tell you that we did not hear them at all, but I will say that it was certainly not the big deal I see mentioned on these reviews. It did not dampen our holiday in the least, nor cause us any disturbance. I would absolutely rent here again. And although I am desperate to peek at the upstairs unit, I still think I would prefer the lower, as it made sitting on the porch so convenient!

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write this lovely review. I enjoyed decorating each unit. The upstairs is very different as I used a coastal theme instead of city chic. We are lucky to have such great eateries around us. My grandson loves getting treats from Foxy Loxy. We are glad the upstairs group did not bother you. I try hard to get commitments from upper guests to be courteous especially after 10pm. Usually they are respectful. I think the worst complainer was a hurricane evacuee complaining about other evacuees. I did knowingly let a herd of big dogs upstairs. I warned the lower guests before booking, but since there was no other place within 60 miles, they rented anyway. I just couldn’t turn away a family from Fl with dogs, knowing they likely were losing everything they owned. I love animals. So I admit in the next hurricane, I will do it again. In the meanwhile, I will do my best to be sure upper guests are aware if they want to stay there, they should expect to be respectful. As you stated, it is a problem you get with historic homes. For people sensitive to sounds, they should stay at a new place such as our city’s upscale modern hotels downtown. Thanks again!!

So happy I stayed here!

  • 5 of 5

This was the bottom floor of a renovated historical house. Everything seemed brand new but had historical charm. I love the way it was decorated and the attention to detail. I think it was nicer than the photos. My family absolutely loved it! It was a few doors away from the famous gingerbread house and steps away from a wonderful cafe, owned by some very friendly people. It was easy to get over to the on and off trolley and the parking lot in the back of the house was an added bonus. The owners were available in case of any problems, which we didn't encounter. Really happy that we stayed in an "authentic Savannah home" rather than a cold, sterile hotel on the outskirts of town.

Great location and nice amenities!

  • 4 of 5

This condo was great! The location being right next to a cafe is a definite plus. If you like being close to downtown Savannah, but just far away enough from all of the action, this is the place to be. The neighborhood itself was wonderful especially if you enjoy the historic district. I would definitely visit again.

Well appointed unit and comfortable for five adults (the pull out couch could use a little help), but overall a beautiful place in a fantastic location.

Additional information about rental rates

Refundable damage deposit $200

The price reflected on SPECIAL OFFERS for the Spring of 2015 is due to a noise concern in the lower unit. It has been reported that footsteps can be heard when people are walking upstairs. We cannot fix this until the summer - so we have lowered the rates due to this problem for those that may not be bothered or go to sleep later at night. PLEASE keep your discount in mind when reviewing - because we ARE letting you know in advance.
