Overview

Historic District - South House Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths (Sleeps 4-6) Beautifully Renovated Historic Home

A beautifully renovated townhouse in Historic Downtown Savannah! This property has been completely updated with beautiful high end finishes for your comfort and enjoyment. The owners have successfully preserved historic features throughout such as mantles and molding that are especially ornate and memorable. Sit on the front porch and wave to the tour Trolleys or cozy up on the private back porch with a good book.

This home has luxurious King beds in both bedrooms! Each has its own television and French doors leading to the cozy back porch with comfy reading chairs which are dedicated to this listing exclusively.

The full bathroom is conveniently located between the bedrooms and the spacious half bath is across the hallway, also convenient for all members of your party.

There is a pullout sofa in the living room allowing the home to sleep 6 adults.

The living room, dining and kitchen are one large open area. This is a great setup for socializing! The gorgeous high end outdoor space is the crowning jewel of this property. Enjoy a working outdoor wood burning fireplace during the 9 or so months out of the year when Savannah can surprise you with a cold evening.

A popular wedding/event venue 'Brockington Hall' is 1.5 blocks from this home. The surrounding amenities include a major well stocked grocery store (1 block away), a luxury day spa (3 blocks away), tennis courts (at Forsyth), a gourmet health food store (at the South end of Forsyth) and many fabulous restaurants (700 Drayton, Leoci's Trattoria, Local 11Ten) within a few blocks of the home.

This unit is all on one level. There are some stairs from the sidewalk to the main entrance but no interior staircase is present.

The courtyard (separated by stairs from the private porch) with more patio seating and a working outdoor fireplace is shared with the 1BR/1BA carriage house which is listing #475721 on VRBO.

This rental is licensed by City of Savannah SVR-00151

About Mary Anderson

My name is Mary and I am the reservation manager for this amazing property. The owners renovated it lovingly and take amazing care of it. I am thrilled to offer it to my guests! While this listing is new and may not have a review history, please 'view my other listings' and also my website for a long history of good reviews on my properties and my service as a reservation manager. I'm also a licensed real estate agent in the state of Georgia.

Mary Anderson purchased this house in 1996

Why Mary Anderson chose Savannah

Historic Downtown Savannah is a place where people get enchanted and fall head over heels in love. With the city itself and with their loved ones too. This house is a great representation of why Savannah has an appeal that has made it the destination of over a million tourists annually.

What makes this house unique

Most vacation guests want to buy groceries and spend some time 'at home'. This location will ensure you can do that with the greatest of ease while also being a stone's throw from every tourist destination on your list. Walkers and runners as well as cyclists will also love their proximity to Forsyth Park. Families with children will be pleased with the lovely playgrounds nearby. While all of Savannah boasts beautiful houses, there are just a few 'Belgium Stone' or 'Belgium Block' homes like this one that convey a sense of grandeur and solidity. There truly is nothing like a well built historic home that has been carefully renovated to add modern day comforts!

Loved the large covered porch!

  • 4 of 5

This home overall was a great place to stay. The neighborhood was quiet and there is a coffee shop at the end of the street. The front porch was very relaxing! My only regret about staying here is that it is a long walk to river street which is where we like to spend a lot of time in Savannah. We used Uber a lot so that we didn't have to walk so much.

A perfect place to stay!

Staying at the porch lovers dream was perfect. Convenient, spacious, clean and enjoyable. My mother in law loved the porch swing! This was our first time to Savannah and memories have been made. Thanks!

Comfortable and Clean

  • 4 of 5

This was our first time here and my traveling companion was a bit critical and underwhelmed when we arrived Saturday evening. Overall, our accommodations were very clean, quiet and comfortable. The kitchen was modern and very well stocked, there were plenty of towels and the beds were extremely comfortable. We were very close to Kroger and that was very convenient. That's the only place she was willing to walk to so I have no idea how close we were to anything else in the area. The only thing I noticed was the drain in the bathtub was so slow when we showered the water came up to the bottom of the shower curtain and it seemed to take forever to drain. I would also suggest providing a non slip mat for the bathtub. We are both over 55 and we had to be very cautious about slipping in the tub especially with the accumulation of water due to the slow drain. Other than that I enjoyed my stay very much.

Amazing Home in a Perfect Location!

  • 5 of 5

This was the 4th time we have stayed in Savannah and out first stay at this house. This was by far the best house we have stayed in!! The location is perfect, the house beautifully decorated, very clean and comfortable. We loved the front and side porch! We had plenty of towels and supplies and the convenience to Kroger was great. We were only 2 blocks from Forsyth Park and we walked there every morning. Even the local neighbors were great and very welcoming! The owners live upstairs and they were very nice and friendly. We will definitely recommend this property to anyone looking to head to Savannah and we will be coming back next year as well! Best vacation so far!

A roomy property with large bedrooms, well equipped kitchen, and large main bathroom.

  • 4 of 5

I stayed at the Porch Lovers Dream for 4 nights on a "girl's trip" to Charleston and Savannah . One of the best things about the house was how quiet it was. We had no problems with noisy neighbors or street noise which is very important to me, especially at night for sleeping. Having the cafe just a few doors down for getting my morning latte and wonderful baked goods was a real plus. The location was perfect for us since we had a car and could explore the whole city easily. We had no problems getting a parking spot on the street and the market was super convenient and large. All in all, this a great property at a great price.
