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!

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

Our first visit to Savannah and we were thrilled with the location of this charming property. It is about a 15 minute walk to River Street and only blocks from beautiful parks. Carmen is quick to respond to questions and to offer recommendations. The apartment itself is perfect- we enjoyed coming back to it each evening. We hope to visit again!

Great location and hosts. The apartment was super cute. Our trip was stress free. It was a little bit of a walk to River Street but not too far and allows you to see the beautiful squares and homes on the way. The parlor is in a nice area and gives you the feel of a true Savannah experience.

Beautiful Apartment in a Great Location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is just one block from Forsythe Park in a beautiful quiet neighborhood, yet perfectly walkable to Broughton and the river area. It is spacious with three sitting areas and a king-sized comfy bed. Although the bathroom itself is small, there is a dressing/makeup area in the bedroom. The hostess Carmen is very communicative if you have any needs. I would definitely stay again.

Excellent vacation for my wife and me. The location was perfect for walking to all sites in the historic district. And it was safe. The accommodations were beautiful. Communications with the owners were the "best" I have ever had with any owners in VRBO or AirBNB. Would definitely stay again. Thanks!
