Top rated 2 BR in Savannah! The recent renovation was inspired by HGTV's Joanna Gaines designs. Private Off street parking. Dog friendly.
This historic townhouse, built in 1872, is ideally located. It is within a leisurely 15 minute walk anywhere downtown, River St. or Forsyth Park. All of the best restaurants are in walking distance too, and there are many. The charming residential neighborhood is far enough away from the noisy parts of town so that you can get a great night's sleep. That makes The Globetrotter ideal for couples, families, and friend get-togethers who are looking to have a great time together in their own private space.
This classic historic townhouse has undergone a major restoration to bring the property up to HGTV's Joanna Gaines standards. Over 60K spent to completely upgrade the kitchen and bathrooms. The house is gorgeous! If you love Chip and Joanna Gaines on Fixer Upper you will love the look of our new renovations.
This fantastic 2 bedroom 2.5 bath townhouse sleeps 6 and has 1,252 square feet of living space. The 2 spacious bedrooms are upstairs and the comfortable living area is downstairs. Both levels have original heart pine wood floors, vintage fireplaces and moldings. There are six steps up from the street to reach the front door and a level parking pad in the back suitable for one vehicle. There is central heating and air (NO window units). Each bedroom has a comfortable queen size bed and a chest of drawers as well as a television. The front bedroom has an en suite bathroom with a walk-in shower, vanity and commode. It has one of the two original decorative fireplaces with a uniquely painted antique mantel. The second bedroom, vintage of another era, has a similar bathroom with the access in the hallway. The sofa sleeper in the living room is a queen size. There is a cute half bath downstairs.
The open concept dining living area has original heart pine floors and another fireplace, that now is just decorative. The refinished floors, fireplace, and moldings reflect the historic charm of our home. However The Globetrotter is also well-equipped with free High-Speed Wi-Fi, cable TV, and Apple TV add on. Everyone has Wi-Fi, but we have a high-end router that allows everyone to attach their phones, tablets, and gaming devices to the network at the same time which is something cheaper routers simply can’t do. This is a great feature if you're in town doing work. There is a TV in each bedroom with its own cable controller as well as a huge 65” HDTV in the living room. This allows people to get some quiet time in their own space when they want to do so.
PLUS! You also have free use of our awesome $2000 massage chair. Get a full body massage for everyone in the privacy of our beautiful home. After you've explored your way around town and return home to The Globetrotter with weary achy muscles, relax and reflect while getting the added bonus of a massage.
The kitchen, with more Joanna Gaines design elements, is modern and completely outfitted. The stainless steel appliances include a dishwasher, 30-inch gas range, microwave, full sized refrigerator/freezer and a coffee maker, blender, crockpot, toaster, mixer and high quality tableware and dishware. You will not be eating on random plastic plates or trying to cut your meat with a Goodwill knife. We have even supplied spices, oil and cooking spray. There is a full-size Samsung front loading washer and dryer, and a full size propane gas grill on the back deck. These amenities are all great for long term stays or when your want to do your own cooking. We have had families do their entire Thanksgiving dinner here.
The Globetrotter has PRIVATE OFF STREET PARKING behind the hourse, enter on E. Macon St. The street parking in front of the house is free, you just have to be aware of street sweeping nights. Parking is a big deal in Savannah. The city is best explored as you walk and you don’t want to have to feed meters or worry about your car getting ticketed or towed while you are out exploring.
Our private porch and courtyard is perfect for outdoor relaxing. The courtyard is a secure area so your dog can join you. There is a gas grill and a table to seat four for outdoor dining.
We LOVE AND WELCOME DOGS, 2 dogs is our max. Unfortunately, we cannot accept any other pets. There is an extra fee for bringing dogs to accommodate the extra cleaning required after they leave. Our courtyard is private and secure and we have a dog park just a short walk from the property to get them some exercise. Savannah itself is extremely dog friendly. Many restaurants have outdoor seating and will bring water for your dog. Most shops allow your dogs to enter. But only you know whether your dog is well-behaved enough to be a good travel companion. Leaving them in a crate all day in the property is acceptable if the dog doesn't bark incessantly. Constant barking tends to cause neighbors to get annoyed. So be smart about it.
As well as being dog friendly we are people friendly. We provide clean, comfortable, fully renovated spaces so that you can fully enjoy your stay. Years ago Greg and I were trained as secret shoppers for the Ritz Carlton Hotel Chain. We learned to expect a level of cleanliness, comfort, and anticipation of needs that separates the best from all the rest. The key difference in a 5-star experience is not what most people think. Receiving thoughtful attentive service only reaches 4-stars. The last star is earned when you surprise your guests by meeting needs they didn’t even think they had. We pride ourselves on providing everything you need to relax and enjoy your time with us and a few delightful surprises that make it even better. There are several little touches we provide during your stay that our guests appreciate. We have deluxe linens and comfortable beds, iron/board, hair dryers, lotions, body wash, shampoo and cream rinse.
Our goal is to provide our guests with a perfect 5 star experience as they experience the city that we love and call home.
**Special Note for Instant booking Guests! Please make sure that your group complies with our house rules. We expect our guests to act responsibly, treat the property and neighbors with respect, control their pets behavior. and have a great time without acting like knuckleheads. No wild parties will be tolerated.
