"This spacious apartment had plenty of room for the four of us: my wife and I in the master bedroom facing Broughton Street, my son in the living room (also facing Broughton), and my father in the back bedroom, which is windowless. There is a full kitchen stocked with glasses (plenty of wine glasses now!) plates, dishes, flatware, and pots; as well as a pantry with a full-size washer and dryer. The living room has two couches, though the larger of the two is not the white one shown in the pictures, but, instead, a slightly larger version of the brown one in the photographs.
This was our fourth visit to Savannah, and we chose this location in part to be downtown in the heart of things, within walking distance to the whole historic district. The apartment was clean and beautiful. I highly recommend Coffee Fox across the street for your morning java. So many great restaurants and sites nearby.
A few quibbles prevent me from giving 5 stars:
- Street noise. Obviously, I expected some in this downtown location. It wasn't mentioned prominently in the other comments, so I thought it might not be as bad as I feared. On Friday and Saturday nights, the noise was significant in the part of the apartment with windows facing Broughton. Cars, trucks, sirens, motorcycles, revelers. Sunday night was fine, no surprise. The back bedroom was effectively secluded from the noise.
- I was notified that I would receive information about entry on the day of our arrival, but when it hadn't arrived by early that afternoon, I called to make sure that it would be forthcoming. Penny, who answered the phone was very helpful and accommodating.
- Parking for one car at the Whitaker Street Public Ramp is included in the price of this apartment. We just happened to park there before we knew that we'd have access to a passcard to that site. It didn't work for us when we first tried to exit with it (the attendant said something to the effect that it needed to be re-synced; perhaps because we hadn't entered with it?). It worked fine thereafter.
- I've used AirBnB before, but not VRBO. I found the VRBO reservation process cumbersome and confusing. Also, I've never before had to sign and fax a damage waiver, as was required by this location."
