THE CANTERBURY GARDEN APT ON CHATHAM SQUARE, PARKING & LARGE COURTYARD

Savannah Townhome Rental Photos and Description

Townhome, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

This 1853 home located on Chatham Square is the epitome of pre-war Southern charm. This home can serve as a special vacation spot for up to four Lucky guests, or a secluded hideaway for part of a larger party staying at our Canterbury Main House. The Garden Apartment has one bedroom and one full bath.

The bedroom has a recently updated bath, and a queen-size cast iron bed among its tasteful mix of antique furnishings. The living room has cable TV, wireless Internet and a full-size sleeper sofa. You’ll find Old Savannah Brick pavers out back leading to the large shared courtyard, with charming masonry detailing and lush landscaping, where you can enjoy your morning coffee, or put the grill to use and stoke up some barbeque.

Can come and go with ease thanks to the private off-street parking spot and the home’s convenient location in the center of the Historic District. Take a short stroll over to Forsyth Park, or down to the shops and restaurants of Broughton Street. Join the locals for lunch at the renowned Mrs. Wilkes Restaurant, the local treasure featuring communal dining tables, that was recently visited by President Obama.

This truly special vacation property is the ideal spot for a couple’s getaway or an intimate gathering for friends to enjoy the unique Savannah atmosphere in their own delightful English cottage style home.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Great garden apartment on a beautiful residential square with free parking. Only a short walk to Mrs Wilkes' for the best home style cooked lunch in Savannah. Chatham Square is a quiet square perfect to sit on a park bench while drinking your morning cup of coffee or tea.

Both recently retired from the Airline industry, we are fortunate to now call Savannah our full-time home. We enjoy traveling, antiquing, golfing, gardening, and all the other things retired people do.

Robyn purchased this townhome in 1994

My first experience in Downtown Savannah was the home my Grandmother owned when I moved here at the age of 13. I quickly fell in love with her home, and the National Historic District surrounding it. We were fortunate to inherit that home later in life, only to have it destroyed due to fire 10 days after taking ownership. We purchased this home to allow us to still stay connected to downtown after the unexpected loss of my Grandmother's house. We have enjoyed giving it the same love and care as if it had been in our family for generations. We only recently transitioned to a Vacation Rental property, with the idea that guests may stay in our home for their first trip to Historic Savannah, maybe falling in love with it as I did in my first visit to my Grandmother's house long ago.

Secure, off-street parking for the property, lunch at Mrs. Wilkes (without waiting in line), a level of service that surpasses hotel concierges, 3rd party Vacation Property Managers, etc....an extremely large shared courtyard, home overlooks one of only 22 squares in downtown Savannah.

PERFECT

  • 5 of 5
This could not have been a better place for us. Did not have to drive one time since everything was within walking distance. The apartment has character, history, plenty of space--decorated very well. It is across the street from probably the prettiest square in the city. I would recommend this place to anyone!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for staying with us! It is always nice when guests enjoy the home as much as we do. Next time you are traveling, you will have to check out the neighboring garden apartment that we converted into a rental, it is just as charming. Hope to see you back in Savannah soon!

WONDERFUL!

  • 5 of 5
Perfect place to crash at the end of a long day sight seeing. This property was very clean, charming and conveniently located (within walking distance) to all things located in the historic district. The description of the property is excellent and contained everything we needed for our stay. The property owners were easy to contact and replied quickly to all of our questions. I look forward to going back to Savannah someday and would ABSOLUTELY stay at the Canterbury Garden Apartment again!

WE WERE LUCKY

  • 5 of 5
Lucky Savannah? We were the lucky ones to have chosen your Chatham Garden Apartment to be our home for 10 weeks. We can't imagine a better location. We walked all over the Historic District. We really loved the quiet neighborhood and being able to zip over to Forsyth Park for a good walk. That became valuable to us. It was a great benefit to have off-street parking, and the eating area overlooking such a lovely backyard. Everything in the home was in good condition, well stocked and comfortable.

For anyone wanting a special Savannah visit, stay at this home. The owner truly cares about seeing that guests have everything to make their stay first class. Go to Mrs. Wilkes' for lunch, the Crystal Beer Parlor (both only 2 blocks away), the Pirates House and to Sweet Potatoes on Water St. for some special meals.

COZY, CLEAN AND CONVENIENT

  • 5 of 5
Thank you for the wonderful hospitality! We have rented many different properties and found this property to be exceptional in it's amenties and attention to details. We loved the thick bath sheets and cozy bed with the thick pillows. The kitchen was stocked with staples and plenty of ice was on hand. The cabinets had plenty of glassware and dishes and cookware. Try Parkers for gormet goodies they have free parking. We walked everywhere - it's a 15 minute walk to Factors Walk, 5 minute walk to Forsythe Park. We especially liked Soho and 17 hundred 90 for lunch, J Christophers for breakfast, Crystal Beer Parlor and Mellow Mushroom for dinner. We took a side trip to Tybee Island and apprecitated the lawn chairs that were provided. If you are hesitant about renting - don't be; this apartment is exactly as described. For the men - the tv has all your favorite channels. The apartment is a short walk from the Dot bus stop if you are tired at the end of the day.
Thanks again to our hosts, we look forward to coming back to Savannah.

DELIGHTFUL!

  • 5 of 5
My family had a great time due both to the home and to Savannah itself. The location is brilliant- not only are the nearby restaurants great but the proximity to Forsyth Park can not be underestimated. Activities in the park, the playgrounds, the fountains, the local stores- all contribute to this home's ideal location. Despite the heat, the courtyard was a great place to spend time in the mornings and evenings and visits from the local cat amused my son. The apartment itself was exactly as described and its location is charming but away from the touristy stuff on River St. The greatest benefit to visitors, though, is the accuracy of the owner's recommendations. If you only visited the sites and restaurants recommended, you would have a brilliant time in the city and enjoy some wonderful food. (Be sure to drive down to the Green Truck Pub- a great find.) We highly recommend this property. After your visit here, you will surely wonder why you don't come more often.

A LITTLE GEM

  • 5 of 5
We rented both the upstairs home and this garden apartment. Both were wonderful, and provided a perfect home away from home for our stay. The "young adults" in our family took over the downstairs apartment, and had a wonderful time catching up late into the night without disturbing the rest of the group upstairs. Everything is a close walk, and the free, secure parking was a bonus. We'll definitely be back!
