Overview

Savannah Apartment Rental Photos and Description

1 Br, 1 Bath, Sleeps 2-4. Note to guests - Teen and adult children only please.

Amazing waterfront views from our balcony overlooking River Street and the Savannah River. Watch the people and activity below as boats and cargo ships pass by on the river.

Newly renovated large, open space with original heart pine floors, exposed brick walls, fully equipped kitchen, plantation shutters and french doors to the balcony with a view of the Savannah River and River Street below. All the comforts of home with WiFi, HDTV, luxury linens, laundry room, and more.

A short walk to everything including Savannah's City Market, Ellis Square, Paula Deen's 'Lady & Sons' and 'The Olde Pink House' restaurants. Antique stores, museums, and over 100 shops, restaurants, and boutiques that line River Street in beautiful downtown Savannah.

Park your car and walk everywhere. Our location is so convenient that most of our guests just park their car for the entire stay!

A FREE shuttle service - 'DOT' - is also available to take you around downtown Savannah and it has a stop on Bay St., just outside our location.

Historic information from the owner:

This five story building was constructed in 1859 by John Stoddard, two years before the outbreak of the American Civil War. Collectively, the block of buildings is known as Stoddard's Lower Range. Construction is joisted masonry with heart pine beams and floors and Okefenokee cypress window frames. The walls of the first three levels consist not only of Savannah Gray brick but also of ship ballaststone and coral. Ships arriving in the port would offload ballast replacing it with cotton and naval stores for the homeward bound leg of their voyage. The discarded ballast material was abundant and less expensive than brick. Iron bridges provided not only access to the building's upper stories but also were used by the Factors to inspect and bid on the cotton crop. The street name, Factor's Walk derives from this practice.

The building was purchased by my family from John Stoddard's great grandson in 1945. At one time, 226 E Bay was the residence of the captain of the port of Savannah, Frank Spenser

and his wife Anna. I recall the captain's homage to his seafaring days, a port hole in the front door. Mrs. Spenser continued to reside in the apartment after Captain Spenser's death until the early 1960's. The painting on the mantel, 'Anna's Walk' was named in her honor by the artist, Ray Ellis. After Mrs. Spenser, the Savannah artist Augusta Olesheig occupied the apartment as her residence and studio.

Enjoy your stay.

great getaway

  • 5 of 5

I loved staying in this wonderful place. It was beautifully renovated in an old building loaded with charm and character. The interior was light filled and spacious nicely furnished and very well stocked. I loved the balcony being able to sit out and watch the action below on River St as well as the big cargo ships in and out of the harbor.

Everything is within walking distance..beware your sweet tooth as the apt is directly above a candy shop and the scent of melting chocolate wafting up is tough to resist. Check in was a breeze though actually finding the apt was a bit of a hassle for me bc I couldn't find any parking the day I arrived. The owner provides a parking pass for a small fee but one has to park and enter the apt the first time to get it. I got a bit lost finding the parking garage but once there never found it necessary to move the car again. The day I left was cold and rainy so I just borrowed the owners umbrella, walked to the garage, and was able the find parking in front this time to return the key. Though River Street was noisy at night, the apt was nice and quiet bc the spacious bedroom is on the back side of the street and noise was never a problem. The place was also spotless with nice quality cookware,a washer dryer, and thoughtful additional niceties that made my stay like being a guest in a friends home.

I will definitely be back.

Perfect location, great apartment!

  • 5 of 5

This place is much larger than it appears in the photos. We stayed for a week over the St Patricks Day holiday week. Altough it was rather loud outside our balcony during the festivities, there was no better place to watch the shenanigans as well as the boats pass by on the river. The parade passed by right in front of the apartment for easy viewing. Easy walking distance to everything. I'd love to buy the place, that's how much we loved it! And a big thank you to Courtney from the Griswolds in Savannah!! :)

Valentine Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The condo is perfect for a couple looking to stay in the midst of River Street front excitement. We stayed the weekend, which parking was free in the two lots closest to the condo, and did not have to move the car once. Everything is well within walking distance. Amazing view from the balcony!! The condo is very spacious. Kitchen is well stocked. Dining room has plenty of space for entertaining. Living room has a very comfortable couch and two chairs. The bedroom has a very comfortable king size bed. The condo was very clean upon arrival. Cortney was a delight to work with. Loved The Olde Pink House and Shrimp Factory! Will definitely be back again!

Cool Loft, great location

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed staying in the loft for the Savannah Marathon. It's right above River street but was still quiet at night. Amazing views of the river and bridge, walking distance to great restaurants and bars, nice furnishing, clean, safe, etc. Highly recommend!
