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.
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
Great place. Cozy and relaxed. The perfect place for 3 girlfriends to getaway. Owner and manager were nice and patient with my questions. Just as the pictures show. Handy full length mirror behind door of smallest room. Handy for gals.
This property is exactly as shown. It is very centrally located in a quiet, safe neighbourhood. This is our 3rd year renting this house for the month of February and we have booked it for next year as well. The owners are very helpful. The screened-in porch is our favourite spot. Anyone renting this house will find it the perfect location to explore and enjoy Savannah.
Loved our stay here at this home while visiting Savannah... very clean....love the age! Located on a quiet street in the historic district. Parking was easy. Bicycles were fantastic to use. This home is very close to most places you would want to visit. Loved having the full kitchen. What made this home even better is we were able to bring our Cavalier King Charles Spaniel with us. We really had a wonderful time and would love to rent here again. Thanks!
My husband and myself traveled to Savannah to celebrate our 25th Anniversary, first time to be in the area and we ABSOLUTELY loved everything about it! The home is very charming and so "cozy"!! The pics and description are exactly what you find when you get there, everything we needed and close enough to the Historic District to walk to everything!! Also only 20 or so minutes from Tybee Island! I can not praise it enough, it was just wonderfu! So much more comfortable than a Hotel room! We would love to stay again when back in the area and the owner's were GREAT to work with!!
We enjoyed going to Tybee to spend the day at the ocean and eating at The Crab Shack, Walking in the Savannah Historic District, just taking in all the history, going to Antique shops and eating of course! Lady & Sons, and Vinnie Van Go Go's were tasty, loved The Churchill Pub and a must is Leopold's Ice Cream!!
Ghost tour and Carriage rides are worth the money too, very fun!!
We stayed here Thanksgiving 2013 for 3 nights (paid for 4 but left a day early due to stomach issues of my hubby). There were 4 adults and our two Bouviers. The location was good and the house great. It has quite steep stairs that are not carpeted so if you have large dogs who don't handle slippery stairs too well, be well warned. Our dogs stayed downstair at night and were not too happy about it!
My son & I were able to cook Thanksgiving dinner and we bought the most amazing blackberry pie at Krogers. My husband still talks about it!
This home has everything we needed and the owners were great to work with.
