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..

Great house, great location, great owner! Charles was so helpful and easy to work with and gave us great recommendations for our stay. The house itself was very nice, roomy and beautifully decorated. We were able to walk everywhere was wanted to go, and was in a nice area that felt very safe for a group of girls.

We love the Captain's Cottage in Savannah. It has all the charm and elegance you would expect for a home in the Historic District of Savannah. We have stayed at the Captain's Cottage the last two years on vacation and we love it. It is just a two block walk to River Street and the Pirate's House is just across the street. I would highly recommend the Captain's Cottage for anyone looking to vacation in Savannah!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Our stay in the Captain's Cottage was great and exactly what we expected after seeing it on vrbo. The location was perfect, we walked everywhere and didn't even have to move the car once we got there! The cottage was exactly as it was in the pictures (if not better) and Savannah was beautiful, we would definitely stay here again!

Cute and Charming as Pictured

  • 5 of 5
We absolutely loved this house and this city. The house was immaculate, super comfortable, and it is just as cute and charming as pictured. We lacked for nothing. We were two couples traveling together and we really appreciated the key-less entry system because it allowed us to be independent from one another if or when we wanted to be. We were traveling by car and, following the recommendation of our hosts, we purchased a city parking pass. We were able to park the car on the street – right in front of the door, and never had to move it during the three nights we stayed at the cottage. This was our first trip to Savannah. We loved staying in the historic district, and absolutely loved the location of the cottage. It was such an easy, pleasant walk (stroll) to all that the historic district has to offer. The owners are top-notch hosts. They were extremely easy to work with, so very helpful, and just as charming as their home. Their recommendations for sightseeing and dining were spot-on! The only regret I have about visiting Savannah and staying in Captain's Cottage: we didn't stay long enough!

I would not hesitate to recommend this rental, these hosts, and the destination. We would love to return in the future!

Great location / Perfect for 2 couples

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed our stay near the river, and within walking distance to almost everything! The house is cozy, immaculate and very comfortable with everything you need. The owner gave us very helpful recommendations for dining, sightseeing and entertainment (a MUST is the basement of the Pink House when the pianist is there!) Ask the "Pirate House" bartender about the orbs; very close is Abes on Lincoln, an old "hole in the wall" bar which has very reasonably priced drinks; and B Matthews for breakfast/brunch - yum! We didn't get to half of what we wanted to see, so we'll be back!

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.
