About the property

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 in 1875, our vacation home has ambiance and warmth, but with all of the modern conveniences. The Blue Belle has beautiful, original wood plank flooring, four charming fireplaces, and a prestigious yet convenient location. If you want to relax, you'll love lounging in our large bedrooms, each offering comfortable queen beds with fine cotton linen sheets and plenty of pillows and blankets. Our newly updated full bath is supplied with lots of fluffy towels, and an endless supply of hot water for a long, indulgent shower. Start your day with a cup of coffee - or tea- in the private, brick courtyard and listen to the birds sing in the morning. Then stroll to the Farmer's Market at Forsyth Park, or take a leisurely walk to the sights and sounds of bustling River Street. Enjoy scrumptious restaurants within walking distance or prepare a gourmet meal in the fully equipped kitchen.

A sanctuary in the heart of it all, our guests continually thank us for letting them stay in such a lovely and safe location. Hear the history of Savannah by catching a hop on/hop off sightseeing trolley at Troup Square, one of our beautiful 22 squares, less than two blocks away. Ghost Tours, trendy boutiques, theaters, antiques, 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. Most guests park their car and don't use it again during their stay!

After a busy day , go ahead and relax in front of your 40" Smart TV, where you can watch all of your favorite movies. Or, hop in your car and drive 20 minutes to Tybee Island for play time on the beach or in the ocean waves.

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.
