Savannah is a must-see destination on most Georgia vacations, but finding Savannah vacation rentals in the historic downtown might look a little overwhelming at first. Instead of wasting time considering all of them, give Southern Belle a call and let us help you find the perfect vacation homes Savannah for your stay in this wonderful Southern city.
Even if your Georgia vacations involves a large party, we have a house to fit your needs. One of our larger Savannah vacation rentals is the Henry Cunningham Estate. Located downtown on the corner of East State Street and Houston Street, this property is right across from the Greene Square. At 2,400 square feet with four bedrooms and two and a half baths, the Henry Cunningham Estate can house 12 guests. It includes two queen master bedrooms, two guest bedrooms with two twin beds and a queen sofa bed. The property also has two full kitchens and two full living rooms. Not all vacation homes Savannah have this size and amazing location all at once. Inside you'll find classic, yet modern decor with simple, but comfortable furnishings. Most of the rooms have ceiling fans and the kitchens have a nice open floorplan so the dining room is right nearby and the washer and dryer as well. Outside you'll find a shaded courtyard with plenty of seating. Southern Belle provides all the comforts of home with amenities like wireless Internet, kitchen appliances, linens and flat-screen TVs.
The great thing about staying in downtown Savannah is that you can walk everywhere. Alternatively, you can enjoy a ride in a horse-drawn carriage or a pedal cab. Continuing to take Houston Street north will eventually lead you to Washington Square and then to the expansive Emmet Square. Just beyond that is River Street where you can peruse the transformed cotton warehouses now filled with shops and restaurants, go to the River Street Market Place, or catch the Savannah Belles Ferry. If you head west, you'll eventually come to the Colonial Park Cemetery, which is now more of a park as it hasn't seen burials since the mid-1800s. Further west you'll find Chippewa Square and Orleans Square. The former provided the famous bench scene in the movie "Forrest Gump". South of that, you'll find another famous movie site in the Mercer Williams House and Monterrey Square. Both were featured in the film and book "Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil." Another well-known site featured in that franchise is Forsyth Park, which is a bit south of the Mercer Williams House. This huge park features many walking trails, the Forsyth Park Cafe, its famous iron fountain and the Garden of Fragrance. Nearby are some other smaller squares such as Calhoun and Chatham. The Savannah College of Art and Design is also in the area.
Depending on what time of year you come to Savannah, you might get the chance to check out one of the many festivals and celebrations that occur in the city. Make sure to check with local information to see what might be available. Here is a sample:
