CHARMING HOME IN SAVANNAH'S HISTORIC DISTRICT

Savannah House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

A freestanding house only 4 blocks east of Forsyth Park, our home on East Huntingdon Street has been completely renovated and decorated so as to be comfortable and cozy, furnished with charming antiques. The downstairs has a living area, dining area, full kitchen, half bath and laundry area. The living room has a flat screen TV. A satellite dish on the roof provides many channels. A computer hook-up is in the kitchen. An enclosed patio is right off the kitchen - a sunny place for a relaxing meal. Upstairs, we have two bedrooms. One with an antique double size mahogany bed and the second with two twin brass and iron beds that can be put together to make a king size bed. Sheets are available for the beds either as twins or king size. Upstairs is also a trunk room - common in old Savannah homes - that can be used as a walk-in closet - or for an extra bedroom for a child. A blow-up cot is accessible in the trunk room.

East Huntingdon Street is a quiet street. An ADT alarm system has been installed in the house so as to ensure that guests feel safe.

Savannah is a historic and beautiful city with many attractions. A vacation in the heart of Savannah will provide warm memories!

Terry and I live with our 12 year old son, Skyler, at a boarding school in Washington, Connecticut, where Terry teaches math. I own a school for young children, Creative Arts Studio, in Woodbury, CT. Between us we have 6 children - but only Sky is still at home with us. Terry is a collector and an explorer. He has impressive collections of Native American relics, old coins, bottles and just about anything 'collectible'. My interests include singing, songwriting and world drumming. Together, Savannah offers us both history and culture and the nearby beaches of Tybee Island. Our home in Savannah, where we plan to retire when Skyler is ready for college - reflects our tastes and interests. It is comfortable and cozy and is decorated with 'treasures' that we have collected over the years.

Terry Clark purchased this house in 2006

When Terry and I first visited the Savannah area in 2005, we were instantly drawn to the city of Savannah - especially the Historic District. The beautiful squares, the Spanish moss hanging from the giant oak trees and lining the streets - the restaurants, galleries, and small interesting shops drew us to the city. And the real bonus was - just 20 minutes away is the beach! Savannah really has the best of all worlds! Every time we visit, we find new and wonderful things to do and to explore. We keep bicycles at the house so that we can get around the city with ease (there is literally, hardly any traffic on many streets)...and when we get the urge for sand and surf, we jump in the car and head out to beautiful Tybee Island!

Our home - at 515 E. Huntingdon Street - is on a safe and quiet street at the southeast corner of the Historic District. It is a 3 minute drive to River Street - a four block walk to Forsythe Park. We bicycle all over the city and never have to worry about parking! The feedback that we've gotten from people staying in our home has been incredibly positive - as they love the fact that it's comfortable and cozy. As we plan to retire there in about 5 years - and we now visit as often as we can - the house is decorated and equipped with everything anyone could need. Our house manager, who is a licensed realtor and is located at the end of the block, makes sure that the house is clean and kept in perfect working order! VRBO has been a tremendous resource for us - as we love to hear from people all over who are interested in renting our home.

GREAT PLACE

  • 5 of 5
We loved the place. Old house in Old town could have not asked for more. Large black community felt very safe and welcome. Got to know our neighbors with in minutes. Absolutely a lovely old Baptist church across from the house Anno 1934.

A must to eat at Mellow Mushroom great hoagie sandwiches and Pizza the place is mellow . Also the Crab shack on Tybee Island

The house is awesome it is got every thing you need it is old and just very comfy would absolutely try to rent it again . We can not say any thing about this house that is negative. Please when you consider this property that it takes you back in time and realty some folks can not remember those times. but we know and it made our vacation.

PS there are stairs to climb for the main bedroom and Bathroom

MY STAY IN SAVANNAH IN THE HISTORICAL SECTION.

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time in Savannah. The house was so rustic in appearance inside. Had all the amenities that anyone could think of. Loved the kitchen area very modern with all the essentials. I especially love the old preserved flooring of the house and the antique furniture which made the house very rustic inside appropriate for the historical section of Savannah. The beds were very comfortable. Our stay was fantastic and it was very quiet on the street. The people who live around the house were very friendly. I loved the outside screened in deck in the back. We spent our mornings there drinking our coffee and eating breakfast. There is a fantastic Italian restaurant just a block away from the house which reminded me of the Italian restaurants in Waterbury and Springfield. Excellent food and the price was great. Their pasta was all handmade and excellent. There is a great seafood restaurant on Tybi Island which is called The Crab Shack which was great. All in all Savannah has a lot to offer. The house once again was very charming, quaint and beautiful. The rooms were big. Was surprised to see a dining room. The furniture was very appropriate for each room in the house. The bedrooms were very spacious and a nice size bathroom upstairs. Loved having a washer and dryer at your fingertips, didn't have to bring back dirty laundery. It was very restful and peaceful. Enjoyed every minute of our stay immensely. It was worth the week stay and would stay again but maybe when it is cooler and not as muggy. They said the temperature in June was like in August. I would recommend this house to other vacationers.

COMFORTABLE HISTORIC HOUSE NEAR THE PARK

  • 5 of 5
This is a great house in the historic district. It has an antique feel to it but with modern comforts. My husband, son, and I stayed with our friend and her son over Easter and really enjoyed ourselves. There was plenty of room for the kids to play, cable TV, wifi, and a large kitchen for cooking. On Easter Sunday we heard several local churches' processionals. On-street parking was easy and it's only blocks away from a grocery store and Forsyth Park. Great place for families.

WHEN IN SAVANNAH, LIVE LIKE THE LOCALS!

  • 5 of 5
Excellent house in quaint historic district. We loved staying here. Very friendly neighbors, felt safe coming and going and at night. The house had everything you could think of. Loved biking to Forsyth Park Saturday morning for the farmers market. Beds were comfy and everything worked as it should. The only caution... don't park your car across the street next to the church under the trees!! They were so gracious and allowed us to park there so we'd be off the street. By the next morning I think every bird in Savannah had pooped on our car! We had a wonderful visit to this beautiful city and can't wait to go back. Oh, to compare the value, we stayed an extra night and because the house was already booked, we had to stay in a hotel. Just as expensive and no where near the enjoyment and comfy-ness and convenience. Highly recommend this place.

PERFECT!

  • 5 of 5
Like other folks, I can't say enough nice things about this place. Full of charm, creaky floors and crooked staircase, antiques all over the place. We just loved it. Great location within walking/biking distance of free dot bus line, parks, shopping, and lots of history. It really does look like the pictures. Felt very safe and comfortable. Extremely well stocked, there are plenty of towels, linens, kitchen supplies, even scotch tape and Kroger cards. The Kroger is about 3 blocks away. Would recommend Mrs. Wilkes for lunch and the Compline service at Christ Church Anglican is a must. Cute little Missionary Baptist Church right across the street with very friendly people, and a few doors down is King-Tisdall cottage, which is an African/American history museum. We came for the Savannah tour of Homes and Gardens; perfect time of year, Savannah was in full bloom. Would definitely recommend to friends, and will try to stay here again next time we visit Savannah. -Two sisters and their mom.

Owner's Response: We're so glad that you enjoyed your stay at our home. Many guests have commented about our lovely street - and it's true. Not only is E. Huntingdon Street the site of some historic buildings, but it is also a safe, quiet and friendly neighborhood. Please let us know when your plans bring you to Savannah again. We'd love to have you back!
