About jackie k

My husband and I purchased the Inn in 2012. We chose to live and work in the old inn and rent out the garden level for guests to enjoy our home and its surroundings. We love living here in the center of Savannah's historic district with its wonderful homes and architecture. We love that we do not need a car to explore our wonderful city.

jackie k purchased this house in 2012

Why jackie k chose Savannah

You'll know as soon as you arrive, this address is perfect - you are two doors down to Davenport House museum, a block to the Owens Thomas museum, and literally next door to 17Hundred90 Tavern and Restaurant. If you are looking to park and walk your entire vacation, this is the home for you.

The location is quiet yet close to the action! Best of both worlds.

What makes this house unique

Strolling downtown's tree-lined streets & squares with your pet, having a drink at 17Hundred90 next door, breakfast at J. Christophers' (outdoor seating, dogs allowed), lunch down York Lane at Wall's BBQ, dinner at B. Mathews (outdoor seating, dogs allowed). All within easy walking distance.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Some friends and I were in town for the scad baseball parent weekend at the same time 23,000 marathon runners were also in town. That actually turned out to be a good thing as, with the hotels completely booked, I came across the Savannah Sea Maiden. It was perfect in every way - comfort, location, cleanliness, roominess. I hope to stay here every time I'm in Savannah now. Thanks, Laurie, for creating such a wonderful place to stay right in the heart of Savannah!

Best vacation and most relaxing place I have ever had

  • 5 of 5

I was so impressed with the garden apartment I did not want to leave. You can’t beat the location overlooking Columbia Square. Me and my husband enjoyed our stay for five days and would have extended another five if our schedule allowed. It is within walking distance to all the great shops, restaurants and historical museums. The court yard was absolutely lovely, my two greyhounds would lounge and relax out there all afternoon.It was so romantic we would get take out and eat out in the picnic table surrounded by the lovely gardens and have our coffee in the mornings. We had wonderful time and the owners were extremely accommodating. I am planning on going back for my birthday celebration for at least a week.

Owner's Response: Thank you for pointing out what a fantastic outdoor dining area this rental has to offer. Everything about this large gated courtyard is ideal because it provides privacy and ambience right in the heart of the downtown commercial area. Whether you order an entire meal from a local restaurant such as B Matthew's or just a happy hour drink from the 1790 (our city allows you to have a carryout cocktail!) it is a rare luxury to be able to enjoy it in your own gated historic courtyard.

Wonderful place to stay!!

  • 5 of 5

This place was absolutely everything I hoped for in a rental. Clean, comfortable, great location, plenty of space, and well stocked for all our needs away from home. I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a place to stay in Savannah. Can't wait to visit again!!

Great Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was great for the 3 adults that stayed here. It was very close to the river front, restaurants and the squares. We walked everywhere in the city's historical district looking at all the wonderful sites that Savannah has to offer. The apartment was equipped with everything you could ever need for a comfortable stay. It was a very clean and unique place to stay, we loved it and will stay here again.

Great place, slightly awkward layout

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was great for my family and two dogs. It was clean and cool. The only problem we had was that the layout is a little awkward. One of the bedrooms is off the kitchen and you walk through it to get to the family room and the bathroom is in the other bedroom. As long as everyone in your party is ok with being a little cosy, its a beautiful place, with a great location.

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed your stay here. The garden apartment is the old servant quarters where meals were prepared in the huge fireplaces and basically just used to service the family, so when updating, it was hard to make major changes (the bathroom placement) without altering the original history that we have tried so hard to maintain. We are working to figure out the placement for a second bathroom, but not easy in a almost 200 year old house. Will keep you posted. Thank you again for the lovely review

This was a great property to stay at. It was conveniently located to Bay Street (about 3-4 blocks) and accessible by walking to everything. The kitchen had all the amenities of home and we truly enjoyed our stay. Only negative comment was the air conditioner did not cool the house at night the way my family likes. They like it cold!!! Other than that, it was great and would highly recommend it.
