We loved the location of this basement apartment! It was so fun walking over to Forsyth Park and throughout Savannah. We were able to walk most everywhere we wanted to go.
The rental was small, but fine for the two of us. The towels were nice and fluffy and the kitchen had everything needed to cook breakfast.
There are two things that would take my review from a 4 star to a 5 star. First, the mattress was not good at all and needs to be replaced. We both rolled toward the middle and didn’t sleep great. Second, the furniture in the living room is not comfortable. We did a lot of walking and would come back to the rental to relax. The sofa is hard and on the small size, so one of us would sit on the sofa but the other one had to go to the bedroom and relax on the bed. Would have loved to both be able to relax in the living room and watch tv.
One more thing to note—the unit is missing the smoke detector in the living room. I messaged the property manger, who was very responsive, but who indicated it was removed. However I’m not sure why a new one was not put back.
This is a good rental, would be great with those modifications!
The property was nothing less than what is advertised. There were no surprises. Very colorful and welcoming. Coffee maker, plates, cups (even chilled glasses in the freezer!!), silverware, working oven, AC and internet, great water pressure in the shower, felt secure with the deadbolt on the door, everything was on the up and up. We were grateful to have been able to bring our dog with us, but the tall furniture made us anxious that our dachshund would hurt his back jumping off (because he's spoiled and sits/sleeps with us and also he's unpredictable.) The back yard fencing was weak and there is a bit of overgrowth that our dog would get into so we didn't bother with that area. I had inquired about the washer and dryer via email upon arrival as it was not in the bungalow. Quick response from our contact which was great! But the washer and dryer are located in the garage below, so that's another thing I didn't bother with. Good to know it's there, though. The mattress is SUPER soft and we sank to the middle of the bed making sleeping very uncomfortable and warm. We left a day earlier than intended because of the bed. The kitchen and bathroom floors are painted wood where I'd assume it to be tile or laminate. I was afraid to get any water on the floor. At some points I felt the bedroom was musty/damp/humid but it didn't last for significant periods and hung wet towels did not dry. But again, you're above a garage... and the bathroom is in the bedroom. Attention to detail was lost as the shower curtain had visible soap scum and the wicker chair in the bedroom looked like someone had put their foot through it while hanging a decorative piece on the ceiling above. There was also something on the blanket used as a couch cover under the pillows. Maybe something that didn't come off in the wash...I didn't investigate. The AC was fine set to 75. The windows open just fine for fresh air and cool breezes. The neighborhood was very quiet during our stay. Very little vehicle or foot traffic. No side walks though... The address provided by property management is not the same as googlemaps so that may cause some confusion. 5 star rating though because every little thing about every single property can be nitpicked and there are just some things that can't be controlled by the property owner .. like sidewalks... or tree removal on a neighboring lot... and again, for a place above a garage...its exactly what should be expected.
