Overview

About the property

1200 SF of Living Space, 2 Bedroom + (see description), 2 bathrooms

'Savannah, where every house is a museum of sorts, every acre a romantic tomb preserving our collective Southern past. In Savannah it is useless to pretend we aren't all connected. And as such, you may as well grab a traveller and come along for the ride".

Beautiful historic loft on River Street with Savannah brick walls and wood floors thru-out encase this upscale modern comfortable home. Eclectic decor, enter this loft from historical (google it) Factor's Walk Alley and you will see from the foyer, large open areas for entertaining as well as your own balcony overlooking River Street and the Savannah River. Private ensuite offers a king bed. Other beds are a Murphy Bed (queen) and a wonderful tempurpedic Sleeper Sofa (queen) in the living area.

Spend hours watching cargo ships and tugboats go by as well as the activity of River Street. It is a favorite place to start your day with coffee or end your day with a glass of wine.

After touring Savannah, come back to the comforts of home. This River Street loft has a beautiful private suite that offers a king size bed and private bath with slate floors and slate shower. A Murphy Bed has a comfy queen mattress and the queen sofa sleeper has a wonderful tempur-pedic mattress as well. There is a second bathroom with a tub/shower combination. For your convenience, there is a full size washer/dryer and ample closet space. TV can be seen from every seat in the living area, however, there are two comfortable chairs w/ottomans great for reading. The kitchen has everything you need to cook meals, if you choose to eat in. There is a 42' high definition flatscreen TV with all the premium cable channels for your enjoyment and a flatscreen in the master as well. The loft also has Wifi.

Our guests enjoy complimentary coffee, creamer and sugar, tea varieties, quality bed linens, bath towels and down comforters. Maps, menus and touring information is available for your convenience. For your pleasure, enjoy the local books about the city and history of Savannah.

A very special benefit to this loft is the lack of climbing steps to have a 2nd floor view of River Street and the Savannah River. You enter from the alley side at the front door (5 small steps) but are on the 2nd floor on the river side. This is wonderful for people who don't like climbing stairs or have difficulty with steps. You can enjoy River Street without ever leaving the loft.

You can drive right up to the door to unload your luggage or groceries then park your car in designated city parking spaces. No parking in the alley.

About Teresa Bradshaw

This is a picture of our 14 year old named "Mullet". We lost him recently and miss him.

As managers, we work hard to make sure our guests have a memorable getaway, in a good way! We enjoy sharing our loft with guests and especially during honeymoon, birthday, girls weekends, anniversaries celebrations. We work hard to make sure every guest leaves wishing they had booked a longer vacation.

Teresa Bradshaw purchased this condo in 2003

Why Teresa Bradshaw chose Savannah

Savannah is 3rd best city to vacation according to Travel and Leisure now. There is no other place like it. Few cities have this kind of history, architecture, gardens and flowers, ghost stories, friendly people, southern charm, museums, theatre, art and the best food. There is something special to see every season of the year. If you have never visited Savannah, make time, you won't regret it. In some ways, Savannah is like traveling back in time. This loft is THE perfect location, has THE perfect view and is THE perfect place to stay when you visit Savannah.

Our guests started leaving us little love notes in the brick mortar. I guess there are hundreds hidden there now. A fun activity to pass the time

inside and feel free to leave us a new note.

What makes this condo unique

There are very few balconies on River Street where you can actually sit. A great place to watch the world go by any time of day or night. We are located in the last privately resided building on River Street. Close to the Port of Savannah provides much to see as the very large cargo ships come into port. So far, we have counted 9 high cargo trailers on these ships. Check out "shipfinders" app which tells you the size, country, what it is carrying, etc on these floating buildings.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We have stayed in Savannah several times and we were doing a long weekend with another couple. We have done Bed and Breakfasts and hotels in the area but were looking something different. This place is an old cotton warehouse that has been converted. A really great room with a great view. Full kitchen and laundry. We arrived, set up bar, walked everywhere we wanted to go and had a great time. And it was cheaper than anywhere else. First rate accommodations and a great location. Great for 2 couples.

Great location, Great place

  • 5 of 5

Great place in a great location. Everything came as advertised. Way bigger than we expected. All the exposed brick gave the loft much character. It was nice sitting on the balcony in the morning for coffee and at night before going to bed. Would stay here again.

Excellent Location!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in Savannah. The city is absolutely gorgeous and surprisingly clean. The squares are landscaped to perfection. Each building is unique and interesting.

The loft was clean and comfortable, with a great view of the river. The location couldn't have been better. There's so much to see and do on River Street. There are restaurants, pubs, shops, and street vendors just steps away. There are beautiful boats docked nearby to appreciate. Street performers add to the festive atmosphere.

The rental process and check-in was simple and straightforward, with clear communication from the owner.

There are two parking lots across the street from the loft which we utilized during our stay. It was nice to be able to keep an eye on our car. Getting in and out wasn't a problem.

Despite the proximity to restaurants, River Street traffic, and construction, it was quiet inside the loft. The thick walls blocked most street noises. We'd occasionally hear the horn from a passing ship but that was about it.

It's a great place. Highly recommended!

The Best

  • 5 of 5

This was our fifth visit to The Loft, we consider this our Savannah home. It is always perfect. We enjoy sitting on the balcony watching and listening to the sights and sounds. What a view of the river, and the incredibly large container ships that go by, almost silently. During our last visit there was construction going on, but we found it to be minimally invasive. We will be back soon!

Good news...Bad news

  • 3 of 5

This is our second stay at this property. We are happy to report that it is just as lovely and clean as we remembered it. You can't beat the amazing views of the river from this property and we enjoy being part of the hustle and bustle of the area. The bad news is that at the time we were there , there was major construction going on across the street that produced a lot of noise from 8am until 6pm on weekdays. I would suggest you check on the status of the construction if you are staying in the near future during the week. The owner suggested to me that we should be exploring the city during that time. In fairness she did partially refund our cost.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your response. This is the first 3 star review we have ever had and we are sad your trip was nothing but spectacular. We have over 100 5* reviews and 200 5* reviews from another management company prior. We did not get there by not doing our jobs well and offering a great space to stay. While I cannot control noises on River Street whether it be trucks making deliveries, tour buses and trolleys, cargo ship horns or just people talking, we want every guest to be happy and we work hard to make their stay someplace they want to return. Our walls are made up of 26" brick and ballasts and are very strong and sound, unheard of construction in most buildings being built in today's times. Savannah is a beautiful historical city but I remind everyone it is also an urban city as well. Part of the benefit of this location is convenience to being able to walk everywhere without having to move your car or for that matter, even having a car. A lot of guests find this movement on River Street entertaining. That entertainment along with convenience, uniqueness, decor, comfort, spectacular view and price draws guests to visit not only once but many times. It is true that most guests visit to exlore this beautiful city during the day and night and do not spend much time inside other than rest and sleep but every guest should be able to use the loft as they wish. As Savannah is growing by leaps and bounds, there is going to be construction noise in every direction with all the new businesses and hotels going up and old ones being remodeled. Please note to potential guests, we have kept our prices low when others have raised their prices. Other somewhat comparable rentals are priced 30%+ higher. I am maintaining prices for any possible inconvenience during this phase. A real deal for a space more than 4-5 times larger than a hotel room priced at or higher than our rates, in this location. For those guests who have visited and loved our loft, thank you for your great reviews and we look forward to having you return. For this guest, we suggest a location on Jones Street 12 blocks away might be a better choice next visit. We hate to lose a guest but we want everyone to be happy with their choice.

Wonderful, it was exactly as expected.

  • 5 of 5

This loft is a wonderful gem. Located right in the middle of the action, on River Street, although no real issues with noise later in the evening. Easy walking distance to many restaurants, and the famous Savannah squares, historical houses etc. It has a nice balcony overlooking River Street (great for people watching) and a wonderful view of the river traffic. The loft is well appointed, spacious (larger than expected), and parking was easier than expected. Loved having two full bathrooms, and a washer & dryer.

Few cities have this kind of history, architecture, gardens, southern charm, art, theatre, museums and some of the best restaurants in the south.

If you have never had the opportunity to visit Savannah, make time, you won't regret it. This River Street Loft has 1 master bedroom, 2 bathrooms and sleeps 4 comfortably.

It is THE perfect location, has THE perfect view of River Street and and Savannah River and is THE perfect place to stay in Savannah.

Other Activities: Loft is Close to Historic Homes and Garden Squares of Savannah, Museums, Walking and Trolley Tours, Ghost Tours, Carriage Rides. Bring Your Bike.
