Welcome to beautiful downtown Savannah and the LowCountry! Built in 1842, 504 East Saint Julian Street is just a stone’s throw from River Street and some of the best restaurants in downtown Savannah.
Spacious and light-filled, with an open-floor plan and beautiful furnishings, it's no surprise that one recent guest said 'Fabulous House -- Other family members rented other houses near Washington Sq. but ours was the best- decore, layout, kitchen, grill and patio.' Another commented 'Outstanding in Every Way,' while yet another said, 'Went Above and Beyond Expectations.'
Upon entering the foyer of the main house, you’ll notice the original heart of pine floors covered in a modern high-gloss finish. A comfortable antique couch awaits you to sit down and relax your feet after a day of touring and shopping. Step into the living room and relax on the super plush Shabby Chic couch as you gaze at the beautiful Savannah views. Dine with your family and friends in our beautiful dining room featuring a fireplace, gorgeous crystal chandelier, and a beautiful round dark wood dining table.
All of this opens onto a modern kitchen with stainless appliances and granite and butcher block counters. Help yourself to complimentary coffee in the morning. Entertaining? Everything you need for making a fabulous meal is at the ready, pots and pans, Cuisinart, roasting pan, it’s all there.
And don’t forget the bar, please help yourself to a complimentary bottle of wine on your arrival and for all beer enthusiasts, check out the opener on the wall, a favorite of the man of this house. Need more man-friendly spots? The private back courtyard, featuring a built-in grill with two refrigerators, awaits your inner Bobby Flay. The perfect spot for visiting with friends and family, dining alfresco, or just relaxing as you listen to the gentle clip-clop of the horse-drawn carriages that regularly saunter by.
For more quality outdoor time, the side courtyard is a magnificent place for having a cocktail with the majestic live oak above and the backdrop of beautiful Savannah homes. We enjoy sitting here with family and friends and catching the occasional tidbit of information from the many historical walking and trolly tours that pass by.
Back inside a marble half bath is under the staircase, and next-door is a top of the line Bosch washer and dryer. Heading upstairs, take note of the wave pattern on the staircase, this was one of many original features of the home that we fell in love with. It is a common architectural detail seen in many homes in this particular area of Savannah, which was first inhabited by ships' captains and successful seagoing merchants. Down the block from Washington Square you’ll find the Pirate's House, now a tourist restaurant (kids love it by the way), but with an infamous history of carousing and tall tales from oceangoing sailors.
Upstairs you’ll find the master bedroom featuring a gas log fireplace, beautiful four-poster bed with all new bedding and a 22' flat-screen TV. A custom closet also awaits your unpacking. Beside the master is a spacious family room featuring, you guessed it, another fireplace, 40” flat-screen TV, and an abundance of books on Savannah and design for your reading pleasure. This room accommodates a brand-new queen airbed that’s top of the line as far as airbeds go. This floor also features a beautiful marble bathroom with new, plush white towels.
Moving further up, our top floor features two guest rooms, each freshly painted and each with two twin beds, luxury linens, and 22” flat-screen TVs. The yellow room we have named our Jack Leigh room, in memory of Savannah’s famed photographer. You’ll find three original Jack Leigh prints accessorizing this retreat and several books featuring his work. Offering a beautiful evening view of Savannah at night and the twinkling Talmadge Bridge in the distance, this room is one of our favorites. Next door, the pink and green room channels fun and Florida with bedding from ABC Carpet and Home. This room offers fabulous viewing of the Riverstreet fireworks, which in Savannah, seem to happen quite often, as there’s always something to celebrate. The third floor bath features a marble shower and new plush towels.
We also provide two adult bikes and several kid sized bikes. Craving a day at the beach? Tybee Island with its beautiful sand, ocean and eclectic restaurants and shops is only a 20-minute drive from downtown Savannah. We’ve got you covered with four beach chairs, beach toys and towels.
Walking distance to everything, the house is located steps River Street, Broughton Street and Savannah’s famed Washington Square. This square is near the site of the old Trustees Garden, and was named for George Washington. For many years, until the mid-twentieth century, this square was the scene of the biggest New Year's Eve bonfires, many often taller than the houses around the square. The Seaman's House, operated by the Port Society to serve the needs of visiting seaman, is on the southwest side of the square. The Mulberry Inn, also on this square, was originally a cotton warehouse, built in the 1860s, then a Coca-Cola bottling plant before being converted to an inn. Given its fascinating history and its beautiful surroundings, it’s not surprising that on any given Saturday evening, you’re sure to see a beautiful wedding taking place.
So head down South to 504 ESJ, we’re sure you will enjoy your stay!
Please note, the house also features a garden level apartment that can be rented with the house to accommodate larger parties of up 12 people. The apartment features a newly renovated bathroom, kitchen and living area, mahogany queen-sized bed and a full-sized bed and new furnishings throughout.

Welcome to our home! As a native of Hilton Head Island, SC and Savannah, GA, purchasing a vacation home in the heart of Savannah's historic district was a natural decision for us.
Pictured above are our two beautiful daughters posing at the front entrance of 504 ESJ.
After our daughters were born, we decided it would be nice to have a home of our own in Savannah. So, in 2008, we purchased 504 ESJ. Several renovations, wallpaper and paint jobs later, it's now truly a relaxing escape and a wonderful vacation home.
We live in the NY area and enjoy traveling to Savannah when it's still cold in NY, but gorgeous and warm in Savannah!
We've created a wonderful and inviting vacation home and are excited to share it with you!
Savannah is a jumping point for not only the historic beauty that's within a short walk of anywhere downtown, but also for all that the lowcountry has to offer. With the beautiful beaches of Tybee Island only 20 minutes away, a 20 minute drive to Bluffton and about 45 minutes to all that Hilton Head has to offer, there's always an option for something to do! We'll often take a day trip to Tybee for a day in the sun and sand or head over to HHI for lunch at the Salty Dog. Then we can come home to the convenience of downtown living with the many restaurants and lively nightlife to choose from.
Our house is located right between Washington and Warren Squares. Riverstreet and Broughton St. with the shopping and restaurants that both have to offer are literally around the corner. The neighborhood is truly one of the best locations in downtown Savannah. We also enjoy our two courtyards for outdoor dining and enjoying beautiful Savannah!
This home would be perfect for any type of girls weekend, family vacation, wedding accommodations, graduations, you name it!
The house is located in the best location of downtown Savannah -- no kidding. Standing prominently between Washington and Warren Squares, the house is light-filled and is one short block to River Street and one short block to Broughton St. Prepare yourself for some of the best food in Savannah, only 2 blocks away is Savannah's famed Pink House -- delicious! Looking for the family? Arrr Matey -- the Pirates House -- a historic restaurant and tavern established in 1753 and thought to be the oldest standing building in the state of Georgia is also only 2 blocks away, watch out for roaming Pirates!
