"This was our first stay in Savannah. We picked the Garden Apartment based on other's reviews. The tipping point, (besides how much they enjoyed the apartment) was interacting with Carmen. What can I say? Other than WOW! What a perfect stay. This apartment is the epitome of what Savannah represents. It's charming, full of character, fantastic location and Jon & Carmen are the greatest hosts.
Carmen is very prompt in all regards such as: responding to initial inquiries, sending payment confirmations and answering any questions. And she's just as sweet as can be. Once confirmed, Carmen will send you useful information on your reservation such as check-in procedures, parking, etc.
The Garden Apartment itself is in a fantastic area as previously mentioned. Easy walk to everything: the river, City Market, trolley stops, neighborhood boutiques, restaurants, 2 blocks from Forsyth Park...just to name some. Stayed for 3 nights. Parked the car and didn't use it the entire time. I was concerned about parking, but it was never an issue. We stayed Friday - Monday. You have to move the car from one side of the street to the other one day due to street sweeping, but that was it. There was always plenty of parking either right in front or 1/2 a block away. Other streets I could see could be an issue, but not here.
The Garden Apartment is just as cute, or I thought, even more so in person. Brick flooring, 50's style kitchen painted in cute bright colors, brick walls, fun furniture. It also has a little patio out back to enjoy. Carmen has thought of all the little details so you won't lack for anything either.
We have friends who live in Savannah. They were very impressed and commented many times that we picked the perfect rental. It represents Savannah in true fashion and was in the best location. This is truly a GEM! My next visit to Savannah will definitely be staying again at The Garden Apartment.
Carmen & Jon, Thank you again for your fantastic southern hospitality! It was beyond what we were hoping for.
Ben & Susan
