Diana was an attentive hostess. The garden suite was a really pleasant place to stay. Sitting in the garden with coffee was quite relaxing. This was a wonderful place to stay for our long weekend. Would love to visit again!

Great location.

  • 4 of 5

This rental was in a great location. Quick drive to most places. Very clean and perfect for a weekend getaway. Upstairs neighbors were quite loud but a sound machine helped drown out the noise.

Good rental for the price

  • 4 of 5

The rental is in a great location if you want to see the Historic parts of Savannah, have homey feel to your stay, and not spend too much money on lodging. Having Forsyth Park right across the street was great for the kids and for my morning runs. The rental was well provisioned and clean. The downside to this rental is that there is another rental on the second level which means you can hear footsteps and other noises coming from the second level. Also, the air-conditioner unit that controls the whole building, not just for this rental, is in the main bedroom closet. Therefore whenever the air-conditioner for the upstairs unit kicks on, you get to hear that even when you're trying to sleep. If not for these extra noises, I would give it 5 stars.

The owner and propert manager was very responsive. The first night we were there the air conditioner was making loud noises every few minutes making good sleep hard to come by. I called the owner and she came out with a technician the next day – great! The technician had to come out again the next day to replace the water drain pump. This probably cost the owner a pretty penny, but it was done promptly to accommodate our stay - great!

If I go to Savannah again, I would consider staying at this rental again, but I would probably rent the main unit upstairs if I had a few more dollars to spend.

Incredible Historic Home

  • 5 of 5

When we arrived at this home, my husband didn't tell me which place we were staying in. So I stared taking pix of the stairs and garden of this building simply because of it's beauty and architecture.

The owner has created a beautiful oasis in her garden. Birds come to the fountain, and pink roses climb the pergola.

We stayed in the adorable basement apartment, and the sheets and bed were SO comfortable that I'm going to find out where they are from.

The park is across the street, and the great trollies are one block down!

I'm coming back for sure.
