Savannah Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Den, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

We do not maintain the calendar for our listing. Please inquire directly with us via the 'email owner' link to the right and we will respond promptly. Please do not use the Book It or quotable rate feature. Thank you very much and we hope to see you in Savannah soon! We have been on VRBO since 2004 and our strong positive feedback reflects our focus on our rental units.

All of our feedback is 100% organic! That means we DO NOT write feedback for our listing. Make sure you check for 'owner entered' feedback when you are reviewing listings.

The following is taken from the Savannah Visitor's Center self- guided walking tour. Our house is the first stop on the tour!

'We begin our tour at the Visitors Center on MLK (1) and head East on Liberty Street to the corner of Liberty and Barnard. Across the street on the Southwest corner sits the Bird-Baldwin House (2). It is the oldest building in the city south of Liberty St. The original wood portion (left) was constructed in 1838. The floor plan, typical of most construction at the time, had a wide entrance hall with double parlors. The parlor floor was raised to permit maximum air through the house. Mr. Lewis Bird, a prominent Attorney began the original construction, but before it was completed the entire Bird family perished on the Steamship Pulaski when it exploded off the coast of North Carolina. (just to make things a little more intersting the closest square to the house is Pulaski Square!)

Mr. Bird's mother completed the house and sold it to his law partner Mr. Baldwin who lived in it for many years. The stucco portion was added in 1860. The house was used by General Shermans' officers as thier headquarters. Over the years the house has been a private residence, an apartment building, a store and a corner tavern known as 'Harry's'.

It had deteriorated so badly that street people were living in it and it caught fire several times yet the house survived. After sitting vacant for many years, in 1980 it was renovated into six apartments. In 1991 it became a Bed & Breakfast. A couple of years ago it was converted into condominiums.'

Our condos are a wonderful example of Savannah architecture and living. They are located at 201 West Liberty Street (at the intersection of Barnard and Liberty Streets and just one block West of the geographic center of the Historic District and are available for both short-term and long-term rental. Each 1000 square foot- non smoking - condo rental is located on the third floor (walk up) with no guests above you for additional privacy.

Our Savannah condos offer soaring ceilings and Savannah heart pine flooring. Large windows offer a great view and lots of light but also privacy since the units are on the third floor. Each has a large private bath with Jacuzzi jetted tub which is great after long walks in one of America's 'Most Walkable Cities.' Each has a fully furnished kitchen (with combo microwave/convection oven and separate cooktop) which gives you the opportunity to cook your own meals or take advantage of several wonderful restaurants in the immediate area. Each unit is non smoking and offers one king size bed and one pull out sofa. Wireless High Speed Internet is also available.

The Bird Baldwin House is a short walk from the Savannah Visitor's Center where you can pick up a guided tour trolley or learn more about the activities Savannah has to offer. One complimentary off street - onsite parking is included in your rental. These cozy condos offer all you need for a couple of days or a couple of months. Live like a true Savannahian... If only for a short while!

Both condos are located at the corner of West Liberty Street and Barnard Street. Orleans Square is one block South and Pulaski Square is 1/2 block North. They are located close to SCAD student dorms on Oglethorpe and are directly across from the Savannah Civic Center, the site of SCAD graduation. Great for visits from SCAD parents!

The condos are furnished with all bed linens and bath terry. They are also stocked with extra pillows and blankets. We always take in to account the number of guests and length of stay and try to leave plenty of bath terry & linen. Please notify us when making your reservation if you plan to use the pullout sofa. Of course we ask that you reuse bath terry whenever possible. We are unable to provide daily linen & terry service. For extended stays we will drop off clean bath terry and pick up soiled terry. Due to such a wide variety of personal preference, we are unable to provide personal hygiene items like face soap, bath soap, shampoo or conditioner. Please bring these items with you.

These condo units are locally owned and operated. When you call or email for information you are speaking with the owners, not a management company who oversees hundreds of units. We are in these units between each guest visit to ensure that they are clean and well maintained. When we have family and friends visit Savannah, they stay here.

We have over 35 years combined hospitality experience. We spent over a year looking for a condo that offered all the key touchpoints that we know, from experience, visitors to Savannah need and expect. A great location that is easy to find for first time visitors (we are less than two blocks west of the geographic center of the Historic District), off street parking, a historically significant building (built in 1838), original doors and heart pine flooring, comfortable furnishings including a large king bed with high-end mattress and box spring (no thin worn out mattresses), a very large jacuzzi and a fully equipped kitchen with all utensils and pots and pans. Each unit has a coffee maker but we do not provide filters or coffee. Those items can be purchased locally. These are truly great condo units available at very competitive rates.

About The Owner

Stephanie and I both grew up in Alabama. She is from Fairhope and I am from Anniston. We met at and graduated from Auburn University. We were both in the hospitality industry, working at resorts like Callaway Gardens and the Grove Park Inn, until we made the decision that Stephanie would stay home when our son was born in 1997. Our daughter was born the next year. I have over 28 years in the hospitality industry with most of that in executive management positions. Stephanie has handled the condos since we purchased them in 2004. She is very thorough and is always quick to respond to inquiries (check out the photo of her responding to inquiries while we were on vacation in a remote Alaskan bear camp! How she had cell coverage I have no idea.) We enjoy what we do and consider ourselves truly blessed in so many ways. Savannah is a great city! When we are not working or raising two teenagers, we like to go to the mountains of North Carolina to relax.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2004

Why The Owner chose Savannah

My wife, children and I moved to Savannah from Atlanta in October of 2001 and immediately fell in love with Savannah. We chose to invest in Savannah and purchased two units in the Bird Baldwin House in June 2004. The Bird Baldwin House was built in 1838 and is more than 170 years old! It is the oldest house south of Liberty Street. We have really enjoy owning such a unique part of Savannah's rich architectural history.

What makes this condo unique

We live in Savannah full time so we get to enjoy the Historic District and Tybee Island almost every day. The pedicabs are a great way to get around the Historic District. I work downtown and walk to almost all my meetings.

Bird Baldwin House Condo

  • 5 of 5
As first time visitors to Savannah and first time VRBO users, we were delighted with the city and the condo. The off street parking allowed us to park our car and walk everywhere. After spending the day on foot, the condo was a perfect place to rest our feet to get ready for the next day's adventure. Everything about the condo was perfectly described and pictured in the listing - our high expectations were exceeded. We would recommend this vacation home to anyone visiting Savannah.

Family Vacation in Historic Savannah District

  • 5 of 5
The condo is in a such a great location. Off-street parking is a great plus! The house interiors are nice and well maintained with AC. Bathroom is superb. The owners really manage the multi-usage of all the rooms effectively and the owners are very attentive to any issues that we may encounter during the stay. For instance, one of light bulbs was out and the owners replaced them right away. Our favorite is the Mrs. Wilkes Boarding House for lunch which is a block away from the condo! Our kids also enjoy the Railroad Museum which just less than 2 miles from the condo. Tybee, Fort Pulaski, Hilton Head, Downtown River street are not far from the condo. All those Savannah squares and historic places are within walking distance from the condo too. River rides, dophin boat ride, fishing are all nearby. Savannah definitely is the "old wealth" of the South and Bird Baldwin house shows that characters. We sincerely thank the owners who allow us to stay at such a historic building.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the great feedback on our Bird Baldwin House condo. Stephanie and I are always thrilled when someone enjoys a stay at our condo here in Savannah! Time and time again, our guest tell us that the off street parking is a huge convenience. Savannah is a walking city so unless your headed to the beach or down the coast, you may not get back in your car once it is parked. We love Mrs. Wilkes as well, just get there early. Also, we also like the Railroad Museum - but just a point of clarification - it is only .4 miles from the condo. An easy 5 minute walk!

Wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5
We very much enjoyed our five-night stay, and found the condo to be exactly as described. The property was nicely furnished and well-maintained. We walked almost everywhere we went, but it was nice to have easy parking behind the building if we wanted to drive. Savannah is a great place to visit, and I would highly recommend the Bird Baldwin House as a base of operations for seeing the city.

July 2014 visit

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 4 was very pleased with this condo's location, spaciousness and cleanliness. We never felt crowded, and the layout of the condo and the spacious rooms provided space for us all. The large bathroom and Jacuzzi tub were a pleasant surprise. The furniture and the huge bed were attractive and comfortable. I am, unfortunately, a pretty picky and hard to please traveler, but was very comfortable here! Our security deposit was promptly refunded. Having a coffee shop next door was a plus!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the positive comments regarding your stay. We work hard to make sure the condo is clean and comfortable for our guest. The coffee shop next door is getting some pretty good comments - from both guests and locals alike. I highly suggest you check them out during your stay with us.

Great gift for mom!

  • 5 of 5
My brother and I booked 3 nights for her in Savannah for our mother's 50th birthday. She was excited to go, of course. She was even more excited when she found out where she was staying after looking up Baldwin House online. When she arrived, she said that everything about the rooms was wonderful and it was a great location.
