About Charles Owens

Charles & Faye purchased the home in 2012 and renovated the cottage from top to bottom. We grew up in rural South Georgia and both love history, historic homes & furnishings. On a trip home from the beach ~10 years ago, Faye and I got our first dose of Savannah; we immediately fell in love the with charm and beauty of the City. For the next several years we would visit and dream of one day having our on piece of Savannah. The Captain's Cottage is now that piece for us; we enjoy visiting Savannah every chance we get as well as having the opportunity to share our home with you.

Not only do we enjoy Savannah, but so do our 3 beagles, Belle, Bug and Scout. They love strolling the streets and visiting the squares; most of all they love the attention they attract from their new friends they met along the way. Scout's favorite thing is to stand on the porch and greet the walking tours; he tries to see how many passersby he can sucker into a pet or tell him how cute he is....

We hope you enjoy our home & Savannah just as much as we do and look forward to being available to offer suggestions of our personal favorites.

Charles Owens purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Charles Owens chose Savannah

Each time Faye and I visited Savannah we found ourselves walking through Washington Square; it is magnetic, peaceful and beautifully maintained with manicured landscape. So when we talked about purchasing a property we knew the perfect home would be near our favorite square, Washington Square.

After months of watching the internet listings we contacted realtor, Mathew Allen. In talking with Matthew we decided to look at 2 homes nearby; it took just one visit to the Captain's Cottage for us to know this was it. It was exactly what wished for, 2 houses off Washington Square, 2b/2b, single story with a courtyard..... the perfect choice for us and our Beagles.

What makes this cottage unique

The Captain's Cottage is in the heart of the Landmark District, the oldest section of Savannah. Just 2 blocks from the famous River Street; easy walk to Broughton Street for shopping and dining; there are literally more restaurants within walking distance than I can name.

Every visitor coming to Savannah will visit the Landmark District so stay in the heart of the points of interest.

Our tree-lined street is one of the most beautiful in Savannah. There is no better street for strolling and enjoying the beautiful architecture, warm southern breezes and historic charm. It will take just one visit to see why Savannah is named the 'Hostess City'.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Your house is beautiful. Everything at your fingertips to make your stay so enjoyable. My friends and I toured the city and our stay was wonderful. We enjoyed the park just walking distance from the house and spent alot of evenings there just admiring the beauty of the surroundings.



Again, I have stayed alot of places but, your house is first on my list. If we are ever in the area again that is where we would like to stay. Our concern at first was the parking but, we bought the pass and stayed in front of the house the whole time and walked most places where we wanted to go..

We had a fabulous time in Savanah staying at the Captains Cottage! The place was beautiful , clean, comfortable and convenient to all activities in Savanah! Charles was so nice and gave us all information we needed to hav a wonderful stay. He even called us on the day of arrival making sure everything was good. I would recommend staying there to all. We visit Savannah a few times a year and the location is perfect. We enjoyed the New Years Eve fire works right outside our door! Our dog Fred was welcomed & having the park so close made it convenient for him to enjoy his walks. Thank you Charles for sharing your beautiful home with us! We will definitely stay there again ❤️

Had a Blast!

  • 5 of 5
The Captain's Cottage was Perfection! Faye and Charles have created an elegant, yet still homey, getaway. The Cottage is picturesque, and so conveniently located that you won't have to drive unless you want to sightsee outside of the historic river district. Dined at Ruth Chris, The Shrimp Factory and Crystal Beer Parlor, and would recommend each of those restaurants to other guests. Walking through the beautiful old squares and along the river was fabulous! Will definitely plan to visit again.

We had an awesome time staying at the Captain's Cottage. Beautiful, clean, and absolutely adorable!!! It is located in a perfect location-close to all the action, but not too close. We enjoyed walking to and from the cottage on our outings. Charles and Faye gave us a wealth of information about Savannah that made our decisions about where to eat and what to do a lot easier. We can't wait until our next visit. Excellent!!

Impeccable Accommodations Within Walking Distance of EVERYTHING!

  • 5 of 5
Where to begin? Captain's Cottage exceeded every expectation I had!!! My husband and I make a trip to Savannah at least once a year and have stayed in many different rentals but this was BY FAR our favorite. There were SO MANY things about the Captain's Cottage that we just loved!!! The location is perfect -- easy walking distance to everything (the Olde Pink House, 17 Hundred 90, River Street, Broughton Street shopping, Bay Street restaurants, and Ellis Square/the market were just some of our jaunts) and just steps from one of the prettiest squares in Savannah (Washington). The house is spotless -- and I mean, spotless -- every corner, nook and cranny! The layout of the house flows really well (especially for a one-story house), and the kitchen is one of the bigger ones I have found in a Savannah rental home. It even had its own dinette (in addition to the full-size dining table in the dining room) where I enjoyed checking emails every morning before my husband woke up. The living room is comfortable and furnished with a great flat-screen TV (there is another TV in the master bedroom, too). The patio on the side of the house is small but perfectly functional. I enjoyed a glass of wine and did some reading there on our first night and we both had our to-go breakfast out there on the morning of our departure. The neighborhood is extremely safe and we had no qualms walking to Ellis Square and back down Bay Street late into the night. The property itself is EXTREMELY well lit -- motion lights cover the side patio and there is sufficient lighting in front of the house to light the porch and sidewalk as well. Inside the house, lighting is well-covered, too. Night lights are placed strategically throughout the home and there are beautiful chandeliers to offer full-room lighting in almost every room. In fact, the furnishings and interior design of this home are awesome! So many neat extra touches have been done to make the experience of staying in an historic Savannah home feel even more authentic. Although we considered getting all-day parking passes, we opted to just feed the parking meter from 8-5 (we were there on weekdays) and it wasn't a big deal at all. Plus it was REALLY nice to have our car just steps from the front door -- talk about convenience! All in all, I echo the many positive things that other reviewers have already said and have Captain's Cottage at the top of my list for future trips to Savannah.

Owner's Response: Am so glad you enjoyed our home as we do!! It is always nice to hear when our guests enjoy themselves. The location and charm are perhaps our two favorite features as well.

We would love to have you visit again at your leisure for another dose of Savannah! Thank you so very much for choosing our home for your vacation!

Just returned from an amazing vacation in the cleanest rental I have ever stayed in - The Captain's Cottage. It just takes your breath away when you open the front door !!! The owners are a joy to work with and are truly concerned that you enjoy your stay, unlike most rental companies. The word I would use to describe this cottage is the first thing I look for in any rental C L E A N !!! Everything was perfect, the location, the cozy comfortable living room and bedrooms, the starter supplies of soap, etc. We enjoyed having the park for our fur babies just a few steps up the street. I could go on forever and not say enough about this cottage. Thank you to the owners for sharing such an amazing rental, not only with us, but with our doggie grandbabies as well. We are already planning a return trip in early December.

Wonderful two week stay. Cannot recommend this listing enough. Cottage is beautiful and very clean! The owners have anticipated ALL of your needs. There is absolutely nothing they will not do to make your stay memorable and comfortable. We were planning on bringing our pups but at the last minute left them home. It would have been perfect for them. We had many email and phone conversations before our visit and the owner was very gracious helping us with parking and recommendations. We have rented previous homes in the past, but this was by far our favorite listing! We are planning on returning in six months.

The Captain's Cottage sits in the heart of Historic Savannah. Just 2 blocks from the historic River Street; walk the cobblestone and tabby streets just as they were layed in the 1700s. Endless sightseeing, walking and biking opportunities. Savannah is one of the most pedestrian friendly cities in America.

Savannah is easy city to manipulate whether walking, driving, pedicab or public transportation. One of the easiest ways to see Savannah is on of the historic trolly tours; they allow you unlimited on-and-off so that you can enjoy the tour, hop off for some lunch or shopping and back on for another history lesson, doing so as often as you like.

Savannah Shopping is in a class all it's own. You will find some of the finest antiques from around the World; antiques abound from monarchs to cherished family heirlooms. The streets are filled with wonderful boutiques of the latest styles. There is a generous supply of shopping for any taste, age and budget.

There are numerous running, biking and boating opportunities throughout the city. If you are looking for a race to participate several occur throughout the year, from the Rock-n-Roll Marathon to the Bridge Run.

If you are looking for a little slower pace check out one of the many art and house museums; absolutely some of the finest examples of art and homes are available for viewing daily. Enjoy a show at the Lucas Theatre, tour the Green-Meldrim home where General Sherman stayed on his March to the Sea or the lavish Mercer-Williams House on Monterary Square which was featured in the Midnight of the Garden of Good & Evil film; tour the home of Juliette Gordon Lowe, the birthplace of the Girl Scouts of America.

Perhaps one of the most highly anticipated aspects of your trip is dining, Savannah has one of the most outstanding dining selections of any city. The Pink House offers fine dining even a tavern below with wonderful piano music; the Pirates House is located in the oldest building in Savannah; Moon River Brewery has it's own brew selections along with a delicious menu; countless restaurants to suit you breakfast, lunch or dinner needs. Not to mention extensive supply of bars, pubs and nightlife options.

Another one of Savannah's distinct designations, Savannah has been named the 'Most Haunted City in America'. There are numerous ghost tours from trolly, walking, coach and even one riding in a hearse. A fun and entertaining experience to learn of Savannah's haunted tales.

I am glad to help you plan your visit to the city and share my personal favorites.
