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.

Rest and Rejuvenate
Loved staying in the garden area rather than the hustle,bustle and construction of River St! Enjoyed the roominess and comfort of the Parlor. One could nap comfortably on a rainy afternoon with plenty of room for other guests to chill out, read etc.
We look forward to booking a return visit!

Our weekend away
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Savannah. The Parlor apartment was so quaint and pretty. Carmen was very helpful and supplied us with everything we needed. We will definitely be coming back to Savannah and would love to stay again at the Parlor!
Everything was perfect! Great location and price. The owners are just as awesome.
The parlor is a perfect little place to stay in Savannah. We felt right at home the moment we walked in the door. It has so much history and charm, which complements the whole Savannah experience. We will definitely come back!
Historic Townhouse Elevates Trip
We stayed at the Parlor Apartment during our first trip ever to Savannah. The apt really made our vacation special. Staying in the historic district, and so close to Forsyth Park made the trip so much more memorable than if we stayed in a hotel. The property itself was full of charm and character. We enjoyed reading on the balcony in the back courtyard. The bed was very comfortable, probably the best we’ve slept on at a rental before. The owners were fantastic and maintained great communication throughout our stay. Carmen even sent us info on historical sites when she discovered our trip mission was to see as many as possible. We will def look this property up if we get a chance to return to Savannah! If you do stay here we also suggest walking to Mrs. Wilkes for lunch, it’s just a quick 5 min walk away!
Centrally located in Historic Downtown Savannah! The location and setting of the Carriage House can not be beat. Just steps to Forsyth Park and the Forsyth Park Fountain, one of the most visited attractions by visitors to Savannah. The Parlor Apartment is situated between the beautiful moss-draped Chatham and Monterey Squares and surrounded by exquisite architecture including notable Savannah landmarks. This is what Savannah is all about!
