Overview

Historic District - South House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 2-7)

You'll enjoy private, 'home away from home' living at The Blue Belle on Jones Street, voted the 'Prettiest Street in Savannah' by Southern Living Magazine and one of the Top 10 Places to Visit by Conde Nast.

Our gracious, 2BR/1.5BTH private row house is nestled among moss-covered trees in the exquisite Landmark Historic District. Built circa 1875, The Blue Belle boasts two large queen bedrooms (one with fireplace) which invite you in with Tommy Bahama furnishings, soft, fine cotton linens, plenty of fluffy towels, and an ambiance that will beckon you to pen the next best-selling novel.

Perfect for one or two couples, our romantic getaway has beautiful, original wood plank flooring, four charming fireplaces, and a prestigious yet convenient location. Start your day with a cup of coffee - or tea- in the private, brick courtyard where you can soothe away your cares. Enjoy scrumptious restaurants within walking distance or prepare a gourmet meal in the fully equipped kitchen - just add the groceries!

When you're ready to explore Savannah, it couldn't be easier than starting from The Blue Belle. Our guests continually thank us for letting them stay in such a lovely and safe location. Catch a hop on/hop off sightseeing trolley at Troup Square (less than two blocks away), or walk downtown to River Street for a day of fun-filled shopping. Take a leisurely stroll to beautiful Forsyth Park. Ghost Tours, trendy boutiques, theaters, museums and local artists are all within walking distance. With parking at a premium in the Landmark Historic District, you'll truly appreciate having your own private garage.

After a busy day touring, go ahead and relax in front of your 40" Smart TV, where you can watch all of your favorite movies.

Slow down and enjoy Southern hospitality at The Blue Belle!

About Kay Koehler

We fell in love with Savannah on our first visit in 1995. Over the years, visit after visit, we knew that we wanted to call this charming city our second home. So, nearly a decade later, we bought our lovely, historic rowhouse right in the heart of the Landmark Historic District on beautiful Jones Street. Having traveled around the world and stayed at many bed and breakfasts, we knew exactly the experience we wanted our guests to have - for The Blue Belle to be a true 'home away from home' with luxurious and thoughtful touches. We hope that it is! Although we spend most of our time at our jobs in West Palm Beach, FL, we are lucky enough to get up to our charming second city three or four times a year. Someday we will retire there and live out our days sitting in the courtyard, a nice glass of wine in hand, and enjoy watching the moss on the large oaks blow in the breeze.

Kay Koehler purchased this house in 2005

Why Kay Koehler chose Savannah

Once we made the decision to make Savannah our second home, there was never a question of where we would buy - the Landmark Historic District. Although we saw some truly beautiful Victorians at far better prices, we both wanted to live in a home where safety wasn't a concern, where our neighbors were quiet and thougthful, and a lovely square was just a block or so away. When we first began renovating, we looked out our second floor bedroom windows and saw a wedding being held at the base of the sweeping stairs of the house directly across from ours; we knew then we had picked the perfect place!

What makes this house unique

We love to walk. It's no surprise that one of the things that attracted us to Savannah is its walkability. Within minutes we can be enjoying amazing chocolate chip pancakes at Clary's, browsing through the many shops on Broughton, or testing taffy down by the river. And, if we feel like a little boogie boarding, we're off to Tybee and in the water in 20 minutes. Most importantly, after a fun-filled day, we can come home to relax in a private courtyard and enjoy quiet charm of Savannah.

A beautiful and charming home!

  • 5 of 5

The Blue Belle is spacious and full of beautiful detail. We instantly felt right at home. The Uber rides were around 7 dollars to River Street. Walking was doable, but not ideal in the heat. The check in and out procedures were simple.

Lovely location & home. Perfect for family of 5 (3 kids).

  • 5 of 5

The home was ready for us with a myriad of entertainment: netflix, hulu, youtube (all on smart tv), with a selection of VCR & dvds as well. I loved the puzzle and books! The house has beautiful wooden floors & fireplaces. Mornings on the back porch with coffee were serene. The best thing about it was the location-just a few blocks from history, food shopping & entertainment. We went out to find new fun every day. The garage is a huge plus as parking on the street is great but was often packed (compact car garage). Love to go again.

A perfect Savannah getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here with our daughter for two nights during a road trip. We could not have chosen a better location in Savannah. The home is walking distance to downtown and all the sights and restaurants. The home itself is perfectly comfortable, and beautifully furnished. The garage is a nice bonus, and the outdoor patio is a pretty surprise. We would stay again!

A Gem in Savannah's Historic District!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Blue Belle for the Rock'N'Roll Marathon this year. She was fantastic! Her location is superb - part of the course was only a block away - perfect for the friends supporting my run. She had everything that we needed. Her bedrooms were far larger than anticipated and her beds slept well both pre and post race. I was initially worried about sharing a bathroom, but her quaint powder room downstairs worked perfectly. Her stairs are a little steep, which is to be expected from an old girl, but take into consideration if you have small children. Parking was a little dicey just because of the sheer number of folks in the city for the race, but we made it work. Overall, just a fabulous stay. We will be back!
