About Erwin Bartsch

Hi, my name is Erwin Bartsch. I moved to Savannah in 1998 from Cape Town, South Africa and made it my home for the next 10 years. Coming from South Africa, I enjoy outdoors activities such as cycling, kite boarding, and running.

Erwin Bartsch purchased this townhome in 2005

Why Erwin Bartsch chose Savannah

This house is in my opinion ideally located - it has great views of Forsyth Park and i enjoy being able to watch the rugby and ultimate frisbee games from the front steps. Forsyth Park has a great atmosphere, for activities, walking, and is fast becoming the cultural stage for all kinds of concerts and events in Savannah. I further enjoy that it is not amongst the bars and shops of Broughton street. Also, parking is not an issue.

Nice townhouse in good location

  • 4 of 5

We were a party of 5 and this house was perfect. Easy to park just outside, free on the streets.

Location was nice. You can walk to just about everything.

Perfect Location!! Beautiful Home!!!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I traveled to Savannah to visit our son who attends SCAD and had a great time. The rental was very spacious and clean and in the perfect location. We enjoyed morning walks in Forsyth Park and loved being centrally located. The property owner was very attentive as I am a bit unorganized. We cooked and visited which this property is perfectly set up for. Would definitely stay here again.

Light Spacious Airy Modern Apartment in Historic Savannah

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was super sweet! Location was perfect - one teeny leafy block off of Forsyth Park and a 5 minute walk to The Sentient Bean for morning coffee. And the modern interiors were a refreshing complement to the historic buildings of Savannah. We were in Savannah for our son's graduation from SCAD and the apartment was a perfect hang out spot between activities. The apartment is beautifully appointed with modern furniture and the kitchen has just about anything you'd need to make and serve a feast. And should you decide to celebrate with champagne you've got glassware for 12!! Two spacious bedrooms with en suite bathrooms make it super easy to sleep 4. We really appreciated the owner working with us to extend check out time a couple of hours to accommodate our late flight home. If we ever make it back to Savannah we'll stay here for sure!

Beautiful house!

  • 5 of 5

Loved this house! Had all the amenities you could think of. Lots of space as well. There was great space for every couple to have their own 'space', and great common areas to gather. The location is fantastic, walking distance to so much that Savannah has to offer.

We loved everything about the house, especiallynthe park across the street, and would recommend it to others.

Pictures do tell the whole story. Best place in Savannah!!!

  • 5 of 5

As mentioned the home was exactly as the pictures described. The area was large enough to accommodate my daughters 8 bridesmaids the day of wedding along with hairdressers and make up artists. Kitchen large enough to accommodate 2 cooks while hungry guests milled around refrigerator for quick snacking. Upstairs bedrooms were excellent in size and accommodations. Overall Erwin was attentive to our needs every step of the way. We will stay there again in the future as well as a few of our visiting family members who simply loved the place especially comparing to where they had rented.
