__________________________

*** We are registered with the City of Savannah as a Short Term Vacation Rental. Jingle Bells Square Cottage - SVR-00032 ***

___________________________

*** Savannah is booming! A record number of building permits have been issued in the past 12 months. It’s hard to find a neighborhood where there isn’t a building project going on. There is currently construction in progress across from the rear of our cottage. Most of our guests spend the day out and about in Savannah, so we don’t think this project will be an inconvenience during your visit.

___________________________

*** Need something larger? We have another property in the same neighborhood - 2 BR 2.5 BA. Listing # 639895 ***

___________________________

*** Important: Our property is in a quiet residential neighborhood. Savannah has strict noise ordinances. Complaints from neighbors result in a $500 fine for the property owner.

*** The Principal Tenant must be 25 or older.

While he was the organist and music director of Savannah’s Unitarian Church, which faces onto Troup Square, the Reverend John Pierpont Jr. wrote the beloved Christmas song Jingle Bells, copyrighted in 1857. In 1985, the City of Savannah placed a plaque in Troup Square to commemorate the song and its Savannah roots.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Built in 1900, our cottage is in a quiet residential neighborhood 50 yards from Troup Square. The one bedroom, one bath property is single storey. Fully renovated in 2011, it has off-street parking for one small car and ample free street parking—no meters to feed with quarters or $7.00 daily parking permits required. Within easy walking distance of restaurants (there is one within 100 yards), the Savannah riverfront, and all of the fun and fascination of pre-Civil War historic architecture, beautiful landscaping, antique shops, etc.

About Owner

We are a nearing-retirement age couple from the New York City area with backgrounds in fine arts and restoration, an appreciation for eccentricity, and a limited amount of patience for shoveling snow - so Savannah is perfect for us.

Owner purchased this cottage in 2007

Why Owner chose Beach Institute

When our son was clever enough to pass up the blustery New York area where he was born and enrolled in the Savannah College of Art & Design (SCAD) in animation in 2004 we began thinking about escaping ourselves - at least for visits. He graduated in 2008 and has moved on to other challenges but we continue to be fascinated by Savannah, one of the most magical cities in the US.

What makes this cottage unique

For short and longer term visits we have stayed in quite a few Savannah hotels and a dozen or so furnished vacation rentals, so we have a good idea of what we want to find to make us comfortable, which has guided us in renovating and furnishing this cottage.

Lovely in every way!

From the historic charm to the cleanliness all was perfect. The Owner thought of all the little extras to make this property one of the highlights of our three week trip.

We enjoyed our recent stay! Thank you

  • 4 of 5

The only issue we ran into was parking. Our rental car did not fit in the space provided and we had a very difficult time finding street parking nearby that wasn't affected by the street sweeping "no parking" schedule.

Owner's Response: We advertise an off-street parking space for one "small" car. In our information packet sent to guests before arrival we suggest backing in to make the small space easier to maneuver. Using this method we have accommodated guests with much larger cars - Toyota Highlander, Cadillac Denali. Savannah is very serious about keeping the streets clean - twice each week - which can reduce the available parking for those arriving home late on those nights.

Great Place, Location, and Host

  • 5 of 5

Great for a couple who enjoy privacy. Gorgeous kitchen. Bed that works for both those who like it firm and those who like it comfy. Our host guided us throughout the process and was very responsive to every email from us. Highly recommend this little cottage!

Great property and location!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the cottage! The rental had everything we needed and the list of nearby restaurants, convenience stores and groceries was very helpful. We only had breakfast at the property but the kitchen was very well stocked for preparing meals. The location couldn't be better. We parked the car and never drove it again until we left. We had a rented Toyota Corolla and could back in as far as the drivers door and still get out, but this was enough to get the car out of the way. Parking was also available on the street if you have a larger car. The cottage was very nicely furnished and comfortable. If it wasn't so hot, we would have taken advantage of the patio. We would recommend the property and would definitely stay there again! Owners are very responsive and easy to contact.

Very Nice, Close to the Action

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed staying in this charming cottage. First and foremost, it was clean, neat, well furnished and nicely decorated with some vintage pieces. The kitchen was modern with all of the expected conveniences. When you hear the phrase "Location, Location, Location, this is the place...easily within walking distance of everything in the historic area. Only downside is onsite parking. It is very tight, even with a small vehicle. Most visitors will have to park on street which is adequate.

Owner's Response: Like many things in Savannah, our off-street parking space is a bit eccentric. It's narrow, so backing in is best - which allows the driver to get out easily on the driver's side. Described in our listing as suitable for a "small" car we've had our own Toyota Highlander parked there (described by Toyota as a mid-sized SUV.) Equally convenient - there is ample on-street parking in our neighborhood with no meters or parking permits required.
