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

Perfect Place

  • 5 of 5
We truly enjoyed our stay in this charming home full of beautiful antiques. It felt as if we had stepped back in time with all the comfort of a warm "homey" feel. The bedrooms are quite spacious, and we enjoyed the oversized kitchen as we ate in every morning and evening. What we loved the most were the bikes that Terry and Julie have here for their guests to utilize. Riding around Savannah was one of the highlights of our family trip. Definitely take advantage of biking here if you get the chance to do so. This lovely home is close to all the historic places to see in Savannah. It is nice staying in a place convenient to everything. We drove to Tybee Island every day, and it takes about 20 minutes to get there. Hands down, this is one of the favorite homes we have found to stay in while traveling. We will definitely be coming back to Savannah, and this wonderful home will be our first choice when booking a place to stay. A special thanks to the wonderful owners and property manager, Nikki, for providing their guests with the comfort of a home away from home. Nikki was readily available to answer any questions and provide anything we needed. All around, we had a wonderful experience on our family's first trip to visit Savannah.

Would definitely return!

  • 5 of 5
We were so pleased with this sweet old house. Perfect location, just off the beaten path. We walked everywhere and would have loved to use the bikes but for the rain. It was convenient to walk to the historic area as well as to pick up dinner and wine. The house had everything we needed. The alarm went off due to thunder, but the property manager was able to help us out quickly. If I return to Savannah (and I hope to!), I'd definitely stay here. Thank you for sharing your home!

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.
