Delightful small cottage, excellent position

  • 5 of 5

We used the cottage as a base to explore the historic downtown area of Savannah.

Position is ideal, easy walk to centre, good provision stores are close.

The cottage is small, but well equipped and very pleasant .Highly recommended.

Quiet and and clean

  • 4 of 5

Overall we were satisfied with our stay at the Achitect's Cottage. It is within easy walking distance of resturants and historic sites. It was clean and well stocked with needed items for bath, kitchen and laundry. Never having rented from VRBO before, the total cost of the rental was much more than the stated rent on the site, with all the added in charges. I was well aware that the apartment had Hulu, Netflix, and Amazon Fire. Never having experience with these products, yes I am from the boonies, I was disappointed that I could not watch the Olympics. In other words, no broadcast TV. Make sure you look through the whole binder that the owner has available, some very useful information.

Awesome Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Architect's Cottage for my wife's birthday. We loved all of the attention to detail and working with Janet. The cottage was well appointed and made a great use of the space. We really didn't feel that we were in a small space and it felt larger than 300 sq ft. Janet was very attentive and easy to work with. She provided great suggestions on places to go and restaurants to eat at. She was very quick to reply to any questions we had. We also met Carmen who takes care of the cottage and she was great to chat with. The cottage was very well situated and was an easy (20 min or less) walk to everything. We were thrilled to stay at the Architect's Cottage.

This cottage has everything you need while you explore Savannah. Conveniently located, all of the features of Savannah are at your fingertips. Great wifi, excellent shower pressure, sweet little porch out back is idyllic in cooler temps. Reasonably priced. Would definitely recommend.

Savannah, GA is beautiful, historic and artistic.

Founded in 1733, Savannah was the new world's first planned community. Wander through twenty-two squares landscaped in azaleas and live oaks dripping in Spanish moss.

Every major event in US history touched the city. Visit a Revolutionary War Battlefield and the house Gen. Sherman occupied during the Civil War.

Used as the location of many major motion pictures (Forrest Gump, Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil, Something to Talk About, etc.), it is now the location of the Savannah Film Festival every fall. And in the spring is the Savannah Music Festival.

Fifteen miles from the Atlantic Ocean at Tybee Island, GA, and two and a half hours from Charleston, SC, Savannah is perfectly located to enjoy all manner of recreation. Savannah is a perfect vacation spot for every interest in your family.

Other Activities: History, ghost, & movie tours
