About Manderly & Marcia

We are Michael Hogan and Donna Shannon. I, Michael am a Toronto-born Canadian, who served 30 years in the Canadian Navy. I retired in 1996, and operated a physical fitness equipment repair company in Windsor, Ontario before being lured to this paradise by my Minnesota-born wife, Donna (a retired Eastern Airlines Flight Attendant).

We met in 2005 through eHarmony (long story, but we could do the commercials) and married in 2006. Our courtship and honeymoon centered around the restoration/renovation of our lovely home. In fact, we decided to get married in the summer of 2006, but we agreed to wait until there was a rainy day to go to the courthouse (we didn't want to lose any painting/working time). It didn't rain until October 9th, 2006...a day made more special because of the wait, and the humor that ensued each morning as we looked for clouds.

Manderly & Marcia purchased this apartment in 2004

Why Manderly & Marcia chose Savannah

We had originally intended to rent the lower apartment on a long-term lease basis, but saw the potential of meeting people from near and far by renting it out as a vacation rental. We also recognized the advantage of having a special place for family and friends to stay while visiting.

We started renting out the lower apartment to vacationers in March, 2007. We live in the upper apartment, and love the house, Savannah, the eclectic neighborhood, and the many friends we've made here.

Savannah is unique in the country thanks to General George Tecumseh Sherman's decision not to destroy it during the civil war. The historic buildings were spared the destructive fate of so many other southern cities. That and the more recent establishment and incredibly successful growth of the Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) did so much for the city.

When the city was experiencing the decay that so many others did during the flight to the suburbs, SCAD was born and grew. With the blessing of the Historical Savannah Foundation, they restored and adapted many large buildings as the reputation and subsequent student population grew. Students from around the USA and the world come here to hone their artistic skills. SCAD presently owns more than 60 buildings in Savannah and has campuses in Atlanta, LaCoste, France, and in Hong Kong.

These two factors, in concert with others, created a sepia-toned historic backdrop with an overlay of vibrant color. Many SCAD students (evidenced by their eclectic 'artsy-trendy' appearance and constant motion) rent apartments in this area.

What makes this apartment unique

Our property is ideally located for many reasons. It is a pleasant walk to the river (1.5 miles), with history and art all along the way. Located at the south end of the always-busy Forsyth Park, a walk through the center of which leads to Bull Street...the center of downtown Savannah. Bull Street is rich in attractions that include some of the most beautiful architecture, historic squares, antebellum houses and quaint restaurants (many of which were featured in several movies filmed in Savannah).

A scenic 15-minute drive through the marshes brings us to Tybee Island, with its spectacular beach and pier. Swimming, surfing, body & boogie-board surfing, kayaking, whale and porpoise watching tours, and great seaside restaurants are some of the reasons to make the drive.

Savannah is a great walking city. The terrain is flat, the ambiance is comfortable, and the eye-pleasers abound. Majestic live-oak trees, adorned with the angora scarves of Spanish Moss, provide a canopy for the abundant flora that includes Magnolia & Crepe Myrtle trees, azaleas, and camellias, to name but a few.

Paradise is found.

As charming as Savannah itself!

  • of 5

This is my 3rd visit to Savannah and we have stayed in hotels before. Not anymore. When I come back, this is where I want to stay. The owners are wonderful hosts and the ground floor apartment they share with us is lovely. The pictures don't do it justice. It is warm, inviting and beautifully decorated. If you don't mind walking in Savannah, it's about 1.5 miles from River Street, with everything in between. For the price, don't stay in a hotel. This is so much more affordable and you can enjoy the neighborhood and city that much more. I plan to stay again if I can.

As good as it gets

  • 5 of 5

Heyward House is the best possible escape. From the moment we walked through the door we felt at home in every way. Fabulous kitchen, gorgeous porch and garden, comfy beds (awesome sheets!), great shower, washer & dryer - and all beautiful to look at. Informative materials about Savannah, the history of the house, GREAT maps. Mike greeted us and gave us a quick tour, leaving us fully informed. Cannot recommend this place highly enough!

Wonderfull

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in Savannah.

It was our first time visit to this Great Historic City.

The historic sites, the extremely well kept town squares, the food offerings, the temps in late Oct. and of course the arts and music.

The accommodations at the Heyward House was exceptional. Very private home of our own and clean as a whisper. The property owners were always available and helpful at our asking. We will return to Savannah and stay at the Heyward House again

Stay in Savannah

Exactly what we were looking for our visit to Savannah. Private and quiet accommodations. Lovely home away from home. Be-fitting to old Historic Savannah. Owners Michael and Donna could not have been more accommodating. Their 2 bedroom house apartment was elegantly furnished and whisper clean. We are so happy to have found your Savannah vacation property. We will return.

We loved this place!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have stayed in Savannah many times. Last week we were showing Savannah to a Michigan friend who had never been there. We needed 2 bedrooms. Heyward House was absolutely prefect. The pictures just don't do it justice although they are very accurate. The owners have created such an elegant yet very comfortable oasis. The interior of this place is incredible. From the beautiful living room to the comfy TV den you just can't go wrong. Owner's live upstairs, are friendly and helpful if you need it. We had coffee & cocktails on the piazza overlooking the koi pond. Very private. The only caution is that this place is just below Forsyth Park and it is a bit of a walk to the river. No problem for us but if you don't have a car, be prepared to walk a bit. We felt lucky to find this jewel, we'll be back.

Beautiful Savannah Home

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for allowing us to stay in your Savannah home. Everything was absolutely perfect and beautifully decorated. From the hand stitch wall art to the comfortable beds to the fresh fruit, cozy porch. I could go on and on. I'll miss Savannah once our son graduates from SCAD but plan on returning for many years to come.
