Wonderful Large Savannah Historic Vacation Rental in the Heart of the City and walking distance to everything!
Planning a wedding, bachelorette or girls' weekend in the historic district of Savannah? Looking for a home that's as unique as you are? Want a home that dazzles your entire group with its great style but that's still sensible? It's hard to find the perfect combination of style and comfort and in an ideal location, without blowing the budget. But you, have found it.
Whether you've been to Savannah once or a hundred times, it's got some powerful ju-ju. The quirky heart and soul of the city was the inspiration that led us to create 'The Simon,' a vacation home that is geared to those looking to make special once-in-a-lifetime memories.
Getting ready to take a trip down the aisle? Want to relax & reconnect with family & friends? You'll find we've got great common space for lounging around but plenty of private space for those times you need it. And plenty of bathrooms makes getting a whole house full of people ready at one time a no-brainer.
All 6 bedrooms offer either Queen or King Beds, comfortably sleeping 12. All are similarly sized and equipped with TV's and upscale linens and bedding. The entire home has been professionally decorated to artfully blend the history and appeal of an historic1890 home with the boutique feel of a luxury hotel.
Who needs stress? You simply park up to 3 cars right behind the house and forget about them. You won't need them. No other vacation rental this size has our location -- it can't be beat for convenience to absolutely everything from restaurants to bars to shopping, to squares or beauty parlors. It's got it all. Others will claim to be central, but once you're walking everywhere, your feet will know the difference! And if high-heels are in your plans, don't even think about renting anywhere else!
Tour the house:
In the Parlor, an elaborate carved mantle with original tile sparkles in the glow of an antique chandelier. Catch your reflection in the mirror over the decorative fireplace that has graced this room for 125 years and sense your place in this home's history.
After a day out on the town, relax in the adjoining Media Room. Get caught up with your favorite movies and shows on the 50' HDTV with premium cable or check out the wi-fi enabled BluRay player and DVD movie library.
Wining or dining, inside or out is never a problem. Huge armoire-style fridge is perfect for everything from oversized pizza boxes to party trays. Both casual and formal china along with various serving pieces allow for all occasions. To keep the well-stocked kitchen clear for the cooks, there is a super convenient wine/coffee bar along the back along with a separate Internet station/charging counter with six outlets and a music dock.
Just off the kitchen, there's a chic breakfast room with a built-in banquette salvaged from an old church pew. Multiple casual dining areas provide seating for 14 inside or 6 outside.
Just off the kitchen is a brand new1st Floor Full Bath featuring a full-on glam mirror, and convenient full-size W/D.
Want a bedroom with extra privacy or minimal stairs? The 1st floor Suite has a stunning 4-Poster King Bed painted glorious red, its own 32' flat screen TV, plus an ensuite bath with tiled shower and even offers private access to the secluded lounge area on the wrap-around porch.
Some people say the porch is their favorite part of the house. Is it the linen curtains that sway in the breeze or the rope lighting that casts a sweet glow over conversations that linger far into the night? Maybe it's the multiple comfortable seating areas or the full buffet/bar area and dining table? Either way you may never want to leave the porch either.
The Second Floor
The gorgeous wooden staircase is illuminated by a bank of leaded-glass windows that catch the last rays of each day, a gentle reminder of the days before electricity, when the house was lit by gas lamps. These days, all the conveniences you'd expect and more await you. Each of the upstairs bedroom suites is uniquely decorated and all include brand new, super-comfortable, Sealy Posturepedic Pillow-top mattresses, assorted pillows, plus dressers or chests and individually controlled ceiling fans for your comfort.
Overlooking the front of the house is Bedroom 2, the Ruby Suite. Plush, deep wine-colored, lined curtains and wooden shutters hang on all 5 windows for the ultimate in privacy and room darkening bliss. A brass Queen bed, 32' flat screen TV, sitting area with a swanky settee and coffee table, plus a decorative fireplace and closet complete the suite.
Bedroom #3 is accessed off the hallway or connecting via a party-door with bedroom #2. It offers a King-bed with a massive wood and leather headboard which is situated beneath a leaded-glass accent window. Another original decorative fireplace, plus closet and 32' flat screen TV are included.
Full Bath #3, is a shared hall bath and features an original decorative fireplace, granite countertop, beveled glass mirror, vintage tub/shower plus plenty of shelving and storage for towels and makeup.
Bedroom #4 shines like a ray of sunlight. A Queen linen-upholstered bed lines one wall opposite a decorative fireplace with original tile, and a brightly colored armoire . A yellow chevron wall-to-wall valance and shutters adds a chic touch to this jewel box of a room. A 32' flat screen TV hangs above the fireplace.
Across the back of the house is the 'Family Suite.' Bedrooms #5 and #6 are connected. The first room features a Queen bed with a salvaged iron gate headboard, an armoire/luggage hutch and a 32' flat screen TV. A private dressing area with closet and its own vanity sink/mirror is concealed behind a pocket-door at the rear.
Through a privacy door area flanked by built-in shelving is the second and larger bedroom of the suite and the 4th full bathroom. It features a heavenly King bed with upholstered headboard, 32' flat screen TV, and closet. The brand-new bath is beautifully tiled and offers a tub/shower combo. A very special view of the twin spires of St. John the Baptist, a half block away, adds undeniable romantic ambiance.
