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.

great location.

  • 2 of 5

The only great thing about this place is the location. The owner contacted me on the day we were to arrive to tell me that the dishwasher and the downstairs toilet were out of order. He gave us a tiny discount and a late checkout, he also said that we were welcome to book elsewhere. When we arrived, the housekeeper was to meet us. No housekeeper. I had to call him. The stay was relatively pleasant because the location is great. On the day of checkout the housekeeper showed up almost 2 hours early. I think he just needs to have someone help him run the place better. Communication is obviously any issue here.

Owner's Response: Dear Larisa, Thank you for your comments and I am glad you enjoyed your stay in the area. Regarding the dishwasher and downstairs toilet, as mentioned before you checked in, were regrettably only brought to my attention the morning you checked in and I was not able to fix them before you arrived on Friday afternoon. Hence I offered you to look at the house first and if you were not happy to book elsewhere with a full refund of your payment. I understand this was an inconvenience hence I discounted your nightly rate by 40%. The toilet has since been fixed and a brand new Samsung dishwasher has been installed. I apologize for the inconvenience of the Housekeeper arriving early, but she did leave immediately and only returned after your departure to clean. Despite the inconveniences you experienced, I do hope to welcome you back in the future. Kind regards , Erwin

Lovely stay in Savannah

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic home to use as our home base while exploring Savannah with the family. Everything we needed was provided. Right near Forsyth Park if you want to exercise or play, and everything within walking distance downtown. Thank you for a great rental!

Great Location, but wish it were downstairs!

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time. Location is right beside Forsyth Park with restaurants within walking distance. Probably should drive if going down to the main strip on the water. The only issue is that there are steep stairs to get into the apartment as it is on the second floor. This created a challenge for us since we had an older dog with us that is unable to go up stairs and weighs over 70 lbs. In addition to this, I wish it had been more clear in the description that there are no bedrooms downstairs (Once you get up the steep stairs that you enter the apartment, the apartment itself is 2 stories). Both bedrooms are upstairs.. so my parents ended up sleeping on the couch. The other negative was there was no spare toilet paper?? This didn't make any sense and was maybe an oversight by the housekeeper. They only provide 2 towels per bedroom. So if you stay more than a day make sure and buy detergent (They don't provide this either) so you can wash the towels. Parking was hit or miss as you have to park on the public parking on the side of the road so first come, first serve. That said, we had not problems with the parking and we had 2 cars. The negatives were minor inconveniences, but worth noting for anyone considering to stay here. Overall the place is wonderful and the beds are pretty comfortable.. The big plus is the location for this property.

Owner's Response: Dear Josh, Glad you enjoyed your stay and the location of the house. I will certainly take up the lack of toilet paper with the Housekeeper as there should be sufficient for your stay. I have also updated my website to indicate that the bedrooms are upstairs. Thank you for your feedback and I hope to welcome you back again soon
