Savannah Bungalow Rental Photos and Description

Bungalow, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath (Sleeps 4)

The owner of the one-bedroom, one-bath Shutterbug Bungalow is an accomplished local photographer, who has added to the home’s delightful modern décor with her original works. Our Lucky guests can explore Savannah’s exciting Historic District on the two bicycles included with this vacation rental, enhancing your authentic “live like a local” experience.

There are updates throughout this charming single-story home that comfortably sleeps four. You’ll enjoy the convenience of your own fully stocked kitchen with separate dining area, and the private deck outside where you can plan your day’s adventures over morning coffee. A perfect spot for your next romantic getaway, the master bedroom opens onto the sweet private courtyard, although the queen-size sleeper sofa in the living room offers extra room, if you want to bring your friends together for a girls’ weekend.

You’ll find all you’re looking for just beyond your door, in the heart of downtown Savannah. This home is walking distance to many of the most interesting historical homes-turned-museums, including the childhood home of Flannery O’Connor, and the stunningly restored Church of St. John the Baptist. A short walk will bring you into the inspiring Design District with its tempting shops and the must-see local treasure that is Mrs. Wilkes Dining Room. There is non-metered parking directly out front, and cable television and wireless Internet are included for your convenience. With so much to see, you’ll want to get a jump on it, so book your Lucky Savannah vacation today!

We are local Savannah residents. Donna is the principal/owner of a well known boutique wedding photography business based in Savannah.

Robyn purchased this bungalow in 2007

We purchased the bungalow as Donna's studio and consultation space and used it as such for 4 years. Most of Donna's clients are from metropolitan cities such as NYC, Chicago and Atlanta and the bungalow was the perfect place to host clients. As weddings began taking us around the country and Caribbean, we found the bungalow empty more often than not. Having stayed themselves and offering the space to friends, we thought the peace and beauty of the bungalow should be shared with everyone. In 2012, we began offering it as a vacation rental so you, too, can enjoy living in Savannah like a local.

Of course, the convenient location to everything in the Historic District. The area is mostly residential so you really get to live like a local with friendly neighbors. The parking is ample and the sights are gorgeous. You hear the Cathedral Bells in the afternoon and the clippity-clop of the horse carriages ride down the street on their way to the squares from the stables. It is unbelievably charming.

MISS SAVANNAH

  • 5 of 5
ANOTHER GREAT TRIP TO SAVANNAH. SHUTTERBUG WAS AS PICTURED, WELL EQUIPPED KITCHEN, GOOD SUPPLY OF LINENS FOR TWO, NO TV IN BEDROOM WHICH WAS A MINUS FOR ME, COURTYARD WAS PRIVATE, QUIET NEIGHBORHOOD, TRY J CHRISTOPHERS OR CLARYS FOR BREAKFAST, WOULD DEFINETLEY RECOMMEND THIS PROPERTY. ONLY THING I WOULD RECOMMEND IS A FULL SIZE IRONING BOARD & A TV IN THE BEDROOM. CLOSE TO FORSYTH PARK, SEVERAL BLOCKS TO BAY ST & RIVER ST, WISH I WERE STILL THERE.

GREAT PLACE TO STAY, COULD IMPROVE EVEN MORE WITH GREATER ATTENTION TO DETAIL

  • 4 of 5
My husband and I had a wonderful first visit to Savannah, in no small measure due to our comfortable lodgings. The property is ideally located within the historic district and within walking/biking distance to most historic spots and restaurants. We walked around a lot, and biked some. The cottage is tastefully decorated (all pictures were great, but maybe reduce the number a bit, given the small space?). The furnishings were comfortable and the kitchen serviceable.

There were some issues that could be better addressed for a more completely satisfactory stay in future:
- The bathroom sink wasn't draining properly.
- The bathroom welcome kit (travel shampoo, etc.) was missing.
- I found a hair resting on one of the pillows.
- Usually, kitchens have more dinnerware than the one in the Shutterbug (only two dinner plates?). Not an issue for a party of two, but might get tight for a larger group.
- The internet was a bit slow.

All in all, I would recommend the Shutterbug for a visit to the beautiful city.

WILL RETURN.....

  • 5 of 5
We stayed for a romantic long weekend at the Shutterbug Cottage. We found this home to be perfect!! Upon arrival we were pleased with the decor, the cleanliness, and charm of this VRBO. We have stayed in other VRBO's in D.C., Charleston, and Italy. The location was perfect near everything we wanted to do. We used the bicycles to get everywhere and didn't have a problem with parking! I was a little concerned that the VRBO ad did not display a photo of the outside of this property on the website as most do. So I did a little research and found a picture of the property on the internet and found that this was a duplex. We booked it and kept our fingers crossed. We did not see or hear the neighbor during our entire stay here. Some people may not like the idea of a duplex but as I said this was a non issue. If you notice the architecture in Savannah and on this street you will see many homes are duplexes and/or very close together. Do not let this influence your decision to stay here at all. The rental agency was prompt and got back to us on one question we had about the rental. We were very impressed with their customer service. This was a great experience with nothing ill to report!
