About Manderly Arnold

We are Roman and Manderly. I`m a jack of all trades and Manderly is a licensed Massage Therapist. I`m from Germany and Manderly is from here. I`ve been traveling all my Life and have been all over the world and have to say that Savannah is one of the most beautiful cities in the world. The history, architecture, and local culture of Savannah are all unique. What better way to experience the architecture and history of Savannah than staying in a beautiful historic home? I really can't think of any.

Why Manderly Arnold chose Victorian District

When I traveled thru Savannah in 1994 for the first time, I immediately fell in love with the City. I knew then that I wanted to own a piece of history. I also knew I wanted it to be on Forsyth Park, as it`s just like Central Park in NY. Of course so did everyone else. When the opportunity finally arose in 2000 to acquire the historic George Hummel House it was a dream come true.

After nearly 8 years of renovation it`s restored to it`s former beauty. Come and experience History.

What makes this apartment unique

Our home is conveniently located in the heart of Savannah’s downtown landmark historic district overlooking Forsyth Park. Guests can easily walk to our beautiful green squares & other historic sites. There are many shops and fine restaurants within a few minutes walk.We have off-street parking , so you don`t have to wrry about those pesky parking meters. Most of our guests park there car and never use while here.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Dear Jeanne Marie,



We just want to let you know that we enjoyed our stay in Savannah and your place is lovely. My in-laws found the lower level apt convenient for their needs (very few stairs).



Please tell Jeff that his recommendation for the wonderful walk was most appreciated. I did it everyday!



Best,

Maria and Tom Hungerford

Reviewer Comments:

This property is wonderfully located right across from Forsyth Park. There are fans in the unit so if you need to block out some of the street noise, you can. The living room is comfy and there are two full baths and bedrooms. The kitchen is small but I was still quite able to cook a full meal for 4. It also includes a washer/dryer, which for us and our extended stay, was essential. There is a little courtyard that is shared with the downstairs unit. Gita and Andi are THE BEST!!!! There was a small hitch with the heat and they were quickly on the problem. It is a nice walk from Broughton and Bay but we are walkers so in the daytime, it was ok. At night, it is safer to drive or uber. (That is the only reason I checked 4 stars and not 5.) We originally were in another property and there were internet issues (Internet is great and reliable at the Forsyth house) and they moved us to make everything right. I would rent from them again without any hesitation. IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR AN HONEST TEAM WITH WHICH TO BOOK, SAVANNAH DREAM VACATIONS IS YOUR PLACE!!!

Owner's Response: Caroline, thank you so much for your kind words. I`m glad we wrere able to move you and you were able to enjoy your vacation . After all that`s what it`s all about, making sure our guests get to enjoy their vacation. That`s one advantage we have over large companies, we are always here and can take care of things immediatly. You talk to us, not some manager that doesn`t care or has to call 3 other people first. By the way the other home has cable internet too now, we finally were able to get it uppgarded after all, so next time you can stay anywhere you want and you`ll be happy with the INternet.

Reviewer Comments:

97 degrees inside when we arrived. Had to to rent a hotel 1st night. Unbearable ! Got down to 85 finally. Great location. Seems that kicking (less than effective) AC when prepaid check in on calendar would have been hospitable.

Owner's Response: Hi Kent Our apologies, our maintenance guy mistakenly turned the downstairs on, instead the upper. I wish you would have called us right away, we could have taken care of it immediately. Glad to hear so you loved the location and it did get cool. We also installed window AC`s as an extra now, so in case something like this ever happens again, there is extra cooling power.

My girlfriend and I were upgraded to the house after the original rental had some water damage done to it, I really enjoyed the house it was very nice. I only had one complaint and I wished the air conditioning had more power as everyday it was over 80 degrees inside the house.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the kind words! We apologize for the warmth, Bruce. We are trying to convince the owner to get a window unit. Come back again and stay in a colonial with better insulation, and we will give you a discount on your stay!

Reviewer Comments:

Although this is a beautiful property in an ideal location I can't give 5 stars simply because the house was SWELTERING! Yes we did read the disclaimer about how the house is victorian and there are window units and that the house won't get completely cool when it is hot. However, what was disappointing was the fact that everything was OFF when we arrived so not only was it 90 something degrees outside but it was the same temp inside. So we struggled down the sidewalk with our bags, and then halfway up the stairs to our upper level rental we were smacked in the face by a heatwave. We had to actually take a break before we could finish hauling our bags up the stairs. Then because the heat was so sickening and we knew it would take forever for the house to cool off we simply had to leave and stay gone for as long as possible. It seemed so inconsiderate and unnecessary. Would it have killed someone to come in the morning and turn on the a/c? We didn't check in until 3pm.

Owner's Response: We are glad you found the home beautiful, Chante. We must apologize as our maintenance man, who usually turns everything on, had a death in his family and could not turn on the A/C for you for your check in. We will give you discount on your next trip on a new construction and I will personally have it at 72 degrees for your arrival.

Reviewer Comments:

Stayed in the 2nd floor unit of this house. All the essentials were provided and the unit was clean. It was on the southern most end of Forsyth Park, the properties as you head north become more elaborate and nicer. The park across the street is beautiful. The one complaint is that both showers had no shelf or place for soap, shampoo, etc., a minor detail but noticeable by both couples using the unit. Overall satisfied.

Perfect location! The rental was located next to the park and the race finish line! The property was clean, comfortable and convenient. We had a reserved parking spot for our car behind the building and never needed our car during our stay as we were able to walk to everything.
