Guestbook comments from the manager

My boyfriend and I stayed here for Christmas. We loved every second of it. This place is so charming and close to everything. The bikes are definitely great. We took them to the river one day. What a fun ride that was! This place has everything: location, comfort, Southern charm, a book of things to do, a kitchen with all the necessary cookware and bikes.

Perfect Location and Perfect Condo

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend's sister had her wedding in Savannah, with her ceremony being in Forsythe Park, and this turned out to be the perfect location for us. Between running around town for wedding needs and also squeezing in some sightseeing, this location could not have been more perfect. It's only about 2 blocks from the park and a short drive or nice walk to everything else. Not only was the location ideal but the condo was too cute. It had everything we needed, including an adorable courtyard that helped us unwind after long days. We loved having a kitchen too - there are tons of great restaurants but it's also nice to be able to wake up and make a pot of coffee and a good breakfast. We would definitely recommend this property to anyone and everyone (I'm actually trying to talk my parents into visiting now). We had 4 adults staying there and it was the perfect size for us. We definitely did not want to leave.

Thanks Deb and Charles! We had a great time :)

Fun funky Artist House

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed our time in Savannah and our stay at the fun and funky artist house. Great location we walked and rode our bikes everywhere. Wonderful that we got to park the car at the house as parking in the historic district can be tricky with meters everywhere. Old historic house and kept and furnished to compliment it's age... 2 blocks from the the incredible Forsyth Park... We walked there everyday and enjoyed the old town trolley tour and walking along River street.. Eat at The Old Crystal Parlor... Less than a 5 min walk from house. . All in all a great few days.

Charming apartment

  • 5 of 5

I loved this apartment. It was very charming and has the historic Savannah feel! It is in a great location, close enough to walk to everything but far enough to be quite.. Do plan to walk a lot on your trip. It was plenty of space for 4 people and very clean. I would highly recommend!
