About Jon and Carmen

Savannah is our passion. We have a love of her history, her architecture, her people, culture, and lifestyle. We have lived in Downtown Savannah for over 20 years transforming ourselves from renters, to homeowners, to full-time property managers to the more than a dozen historic properties we have been so fortunate to preserve. While we have rented a number of our properties over many years to countless corporate and vacationing travelers, we joined the Homeaway/VRBO family in 2015 to be able to serve you, our guest, every step of the way from initial rental inquiry about our home to completion of your Savannah stay. We look forward to sharing our passion for Savannah and historic homes with you.

Jon and Carmen purchased this apartment in 2004

Why Jon and Carmen chose Historic District - South

We are simply enthralled with the historic architecture and the stories of people and places that these magnificent homes in Downtown Savannah tell. Any home that has age and history instantly earns my respect. Like a great mystery or detective novel, I love to imagine and discover details in each of our properties...what hands laid the brick, forged the iron...whose footsteps have paced the floors and climbed the steps? With every passing day we become part of the home's history and have an opportunity to preserve, share, and create a story to tell of generations of old for generations to come.

What makes this apartment unique

The Parlor Apartment is filled with personality. Unique furnishings and decor with several sitting arrangements to relax and reflect on your day of exploring Savannah during the waking hours and resting soundly in the glamorous bed at night dreaming of the day to come.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Carmen & Jon:

What a wonderful place to bring in the new year. The "Parlor: is perfect - in fact I could easily live here long term.

Thank you both for opening up your place and providing us with a unique and beautiful place to stay.

Best Wishes and happiest of New Years!

Wonderful Savannah Anniversary Trip

  • 5 of 5

We visited Savannah for our 3rd anniversary. We have always had a special connection to this city, but it is even more so now. The "Parlor" far exceeded our expectations. It was spacious and immaculately decorated. The welcoming, personal, thoughtful details made it such a wonderful space to relax and enjoy, especially on a rainy day! It is close to all the local restaurants, squares, parks, (and daiquiri shops!) etc. We didn't have to drive at all other than to venture to Tybee Island. It was truly a perfect weekend away - romantic, fun, convenient, affordable. I would definitely stay here again and am already planning another trip to Savannah! Jon and Carmen were super helpful and my only wish was that we could have met them to thank them in person!

Our 1852 RowHouse

  • 5 of 5

Our vacation in Savannah was great. Our owners provided a lovely apartment for us with fresh flowers in every room and a nice basket of goodies, including fresh fruit. We had a problem accessing the lock box for the key and when we called they arrived within 15 minutes to get our keys. That was the only "problem" we had during our time there. We enjoyed the time so much that we extended our reservation for two extra days. The Pattersons, Crossville TN

Charming, in the heart of everything!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful property, plenty of space, and full of amenities! Loved the charm and the location - in the heart of everything, but tucked away on a quiet street of historic row houses. Great communication from Jon and Carmen - easy check in and out procedures, and readily available for questions. Highly recommended - we will be back!

Wonderful location and lots of space

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful stay at the Parlor. The location cannot be beat! We were grateful to be so close to Forsyth Park so our son could get out lots of energy on the playgrounds and basketball courts. And it was an easy walk, drive or trolley ride to so many of the historical sites we wanted to see (and places we wanted to eat). Carmen was a wonderful host, offering clear communication about our visit and leaving us popcorn and sparkling juice for our New Year's Eve stay. While we experienced unusally cold weather on our trip (and the house can be drafty), the heat kept us all toasty warm. Thank you for sharing your lovely apartment with my family; we would gladly stay again the next time we are in Savannah.

Lovely historic flat in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We managed to come to Savannah for the crazy snow and ice storm so our stay was less than perfect for sightseeing, but the flat was extremely charming and well appointed. Communication was easy and cordial with the owners. We would recommend highly, don’t hesitate to book.

Cozy and decorated for the holidays

  • 5 of 5

The parlor is perfectly cozy and clean. Everything was decorated for the holidays, including a Christmas tree. Savannah is beautiful during the holidays. Carmen and Job are very accommodating and go above and beyond.
