About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

A freestanding house only 4 blocks east of Forsyth Park, our home on East Huntingdon Street has been completely renovated and decorated so as to be comfortable and cozy, furnished with charming antiques. The downstairs has a living area, dining area, full kitchen, half bath and laundry area. The living room has a flat screen TV. A satellite dish on the roof provides many channels. . There is Wi-Fi throughout the house. An enclosed patio is right off the kitchen - a sunny place for a relaxing meal. Upstairs, we have two bedrooms. One with an antique double size mahogany bed and the second with two twin brass and iron beds that can be put together to make a king size bed. Sheets are available for the beds either as twins or king size. Upstairs is also a trunk room - common in old Savannah homes - that can be used as a walk-in closet - or for an extra bedroom for a child. A blow-up cot is accessible in the trunk room.

East Huntingdon Street is a quiet street. An ADT alarm system has been installed in the house so as to ensure that guests feel safe.

Savannah is a historic and beautiful city with many attractions. A vacation in the heart of Savannah will provide warm memories!

About Terry Clark

Terry and I currently live in Clinton, CT. Terry recently retired after 30 years of teaching math at a boarding school in Washington, CT. I own a school for young children, CAST Preschool, in Woodbury, CT. Between us we have 6 children. Most of them are grown, but Skyler is 19 and is a Sophomore at Washington College in Chestertown, MD. Terry has impressive collections of Native American relics, old coins, bottles and just about anything 'collectible'. My interests include singing, songwriting and world drumming. Together, Savannah offers us both history and culture and the nearby beaches of Tybee Island. Our home in Savannah reflects our tastes and interests. It is comfortable and cozy and is decorated with 'treasures' that we have collected over the years.

Terry Clark purchased this house in 2006

Why Terry Clark chose Beach Institute

When Terry and I first visited the Savannah area in 2005, we were instantly drawn to the city of Savannah - especially the Historic District. The beautiful squares, the Spanish moss hanging from the giant oak trees and lining the streets - the restaurants, galleries, and small interesting shops drew us to the city. And the real bonus was - just 20 minutes away is the beach! Savannah really has the best of all worlds! Every time we visit, we find new and wonderful things to do and to explore. We keep bicycles at the house so that we can get around the city with ease (there is literally, hardly any traffic on many streets)...and when we get the urge for sand and surf, we jump in the car and head out to beautiful Tybee Island!

What makes this house unique

Our home - at 515 E. Huntingdon Street - is on a safe and quiet street at the southeast corner of the Historic District. It is a 3 minute drive to River Street - a four block walk to Forsythe Park. We bicycle all over the city and never have to worry about parking! The feedback that we've gotten from people staying in our home has been incredibly positive - as they love the fact that it's comfortable and cozy. As we plan to retire there in about 5 years - and we now visit as often as we can - the house is decorated and equipped with everything anyone could need. Our house manager, who is a licensed realtor and is located at the end of the block, makes sure that the house is clean and kept in perfect working order! VRBO has been a tremendous resource for us - as we love to hear from people all over who are interested in renting our home.

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

We loved the place. Old house in Old town could have not asked for more. Large black community felt very safe and welcome. Got to know our neighbors with in minutes. Absolutely a lovely old Baptist church across from the house Anno 1934.

A must to eat at Mellow Mushroom great hoagie sandwiches and Pizza the place is mellow . Also the Crab shack on Tybee Island

The house is awesome it is got every thing you need it is old and just very comfy would absolutely try to rent it again . We can not say any thing about this house that is negative. Please when you consider this property that it takes you back in time and realty some folks can not remember those times. but we know and it made our vacation.

PS there are stairs to climb for the main bedroom and Bathroom

Perfect rental for St. Patty's in Savannah

  • 5 of 5

First let me say, the pictures do not do this place justice. I fell in love with the house the moment I walked in. There is such charm and character in Terry's place! All the amenities you'll need are provided and the extra things like bicycles were a welcomed addition. This was our first St. Patrick's day in Savannah and we'll be back. Terry's place is just far enough away from the main hub of festivities (River St./Bay St.), but still close enough to walk or bike. There's plenty of space in the house and you'll find something interesting in each room. We never had issues with parking on the street, just be sure the read the signs. Thanks to Terry for offering this pet friendly, beautiful home at a reasonable price!

Four Adults Travelling from California

We have to give this rental 5 stars. The location is excellent. It is very safe with the ADT alarm system ...easy to manage. The facilities are clean and fully furnished. The house and kitchen are fully equipped and close to a major food store, Forsythe Park and historic downtown which is easily accessible by car or bikes ( four provided). Terry and the house manager, Carloyn are very accommodating. Would we rent bet! Savannah has so much to offer....don't miss it.

Sister vacation

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful property decorated top to bottom in beautiful antiques! Close walking distance to much of the historical district. The home was comfortable and provided everything we needed for a great stay! We visited the African American museum located just across the street which was very informative for the area. The church takes up most parking on Sunday but they were very kind. Just make sure you sleep in that day! The owners and property manager were very helpful and kind as well... Thanks for a great trip! We can't wait to visit again!

Great location

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from a wonderful stay in Savannah. The house is well located on the edge of town so it's easy to walk around Savannah, but also easy to hop in the car and drive over to Tybee Island for some beach time. Having the grocery store nearby was an extra perk, and the dollar store was great for some cheap beach toys. Overall we had a great time exploring both downtown Savannah and the beach and would definitely look to stay here again. Thanks!

Nice cozy spot close to the historical district

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I found the house to be very clean, and easy to live in for the long weekend that we were here. We felt comfortable walking around the neighborhood which is just blocks from the east side of Forsythe Park. We took advantage of the various walking tours that were available in the book that we had ( and also found to be here) and went on a tour called the Footprints of Savanaha which was a story about slavery in Savannah...this is must do if you really want to understand about Savannahs true history. The house is well stocked with travel and tour books on Savannah. Restaurants were amazing- went to Old Pink house, Elizabeth on 37th and 11 ten which were all delicious, and southern.
