About Erwin Bartsch

Hi, my name is Erwin Bartsch. I moved to Savannah in 1998 from Cape Town, South Africa and made it my home for the next 10 years. Coming from South Africa, I enjoy outdoors activities such as cycling, kite boarding, and running.

Erwin Bartsch purchased this townhome in 2005

Why Erwin Bartsch chose Savannah

This house is in my opinion ideally located - it has great views of Forsyth Park and i enjoy being able to watch the rugby and ultimate frisbee games from the front steps. Forsyth Park has a great atmosphere, for activities, walking, and is fast becoming the cultural stage for all kinds of concerts and events in Savannah. I further enjoy that it is not amongst the bars and shops of Broughton street. Also, parking is not an issue.

Great location but has black mold in house vents

  • 2 of 5

Overall, this was a great property except for the black mold in the vents of several rooms. We discovered it in the downstairs half bath vent and then, after checking all the rooms, found it one of the upstairs bedrooms in both vents. Now, this could have happened anywhere but the part that angers me most is that we also discovered a note on the kitchen wall that stated "fixed the leak and broken lock...let Erwin know about black mold." So while I understand that this is a rental property that the owner isn't at everyday, it's clear that he was made aware of this serious issue BEFORE my group arrived. I have a close friend that nearly died from infection due to exposure to black mold - what if we were traveling together? They would have had to stay elsewhere and incur additional costs to do so. So based on that, it would be irresponsible to give this anything higher than 2 stars. It's sad too, because this really was a great location. One block away from Forsyth Park and 5 min taxi ride to City Market / River Street area. The decor is beautiful and beds were comfortable (although the nights/early mornings are noisy with trash collection, sweepers and people walking/driving by - would highly recommend ear plugs). The toilet in one of the upstairs bathrooms continually runs as well. Oh and we were told that the check-in time was 4pm, but when we arrived at 4:15, the cleaners were still there and stayed for another half hour (awkward). As I said, great location and well appointed with linens/supplies, etc. but that black mold is inexcusable in my view.

Great house in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week and could have stayed longer. The house has 2 large bedrooms, both with plenty of light as well as full bathrooms. Most importantly, the beds were very comfortable. The living area is open and bright with plenty of space with a nicely appointed kitchen. For us the location was wonderful - a quiet side street a half block from the park and easy walking to almost everything. Parking was easy pretty much directly in front of the entry. We've been to Savannah a dozen times and this was the most enjoyable.

October weekend in Savannah

  • 5 of 5

The townhouse was great! Excellent location - right next to Forsyth Park and a nice starting point for walks throughout Savannah. We really enjoyed the back deck (where we ate most of our meals) and the kitchen made it easy to prepare meals at the townhouse.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful location! Beautiful home! This was our first time in Savannah as we rented this townhouse with another couple to celebrate my wife's 40th birthday. The owner was very easy to communicate and work with (even though he was in South Africa and there is a time difference) and my initial concerns about dealing with someone in another country were completely eliminated. He provided emailed suggestions for bars, taverns, restaurants, spas, etc. based on his personal experiences well in advance of our arrival. Although some were tourist spots, he also included places that the locals go so we took advantage of many of his suggestions. We will definitely be back and would highly recommend this place to anyone visiting Savannah!

GREAT CONDO BUT SOME PROBLEMS

  • 3 of 5

Everything other guests have said about this condo is true - the location is fantastic; next to Forsythe Park. The Condo is lovely and well-equipped and furnished; although it was missing a few items, like dish soap, kitchen towels, etc that one would expect to find; nevertheless, it was perfect for a women's get-away.

Well - almost perfect. Unfortunately, there were a few maintenance issues with the condo, two of which definitely impacted our stay. The first was that the deck had not been cleaned; not only had it not been cleaned recently; it had not been cleaned for many weeks; vines were actually growing around the chairs. As we definitely wanted to use this deck, we spent an hour cutting vines, scrubbing tables and chairs and sweeping up piles of leaves. The management company told us that the maid had not been paid to clean the deck so it was not her responsibility; I'm pretty sure it should not be the guests' responsibility so this is something the owner needs to look at. Once it was cleaned, we spent many a happy hour on this deck, with its view of Forsythe Park. We had hoped to use the gas barbecue, but it is rusted and unusable.

The second serious problem was not so easily remedied. The toilet in one of the bedrooms would not flush; this was rather an annoying problem as 3 of us shared this bedroom and had to either traipse through the other ladies' bedroom when we needed to use the facilities or tromp all the way downstairs. After contacting the management company several times over this incident, they told us that a plumber would be contacted but, if they did not appear, we could fight it out with the owner for a partial refund. As we were not interested in marring our holiday with this hassle, we let it go and put up with the inconvenience. The owner, to date, has not returned e-mails.

Having rented other properties throughout the world and having any concerns dealt with immediately, we were a bit surprised at the lack of response to some rather serious problems.

I hope the owner of this condo takes a serious look at maintenance issues. This is a beautiful condo in a fantastic location and great value for the money; it is a shame to see it not properly maintained.
