Why Mary Anderson chose Historic District - South
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!

Great Stay in Historic Savannah
This place was very well kept in a wonderful location. It is located a few blocks away from Forsyth Park, an iconic symbol of the beautiful city. The home is only a 4 minute walk from a Krogers grocery store. We went over there to pick up some fresh produce and steaks and utilized the backyard patio and grill. I also purchased a couple of duralogs at the Krogers and we had a little fire in the outdoor fireplace that was located off the patio.
The kitchen was in working order and had everything we needed, we chose to eat breakfast at the house most of the mornings. There were plenty of linens and the beds were very comfortable. The Internet was a little wonky but I wouldn't say it was a deal breaker. When it didn't respond well I simply used my data on my phone.
The front porch was very lovely with the sweet smell of honeysuckle and a persimmon tree on the front corner of the porch. The tree attracted various birds that enjoyed the fruit from the tree.
One of the things we enjoyed was the fact that Savannah has a noise ordinance that goes into effect at 9:00pm. It seemed very charming to be able to sit on the porch swing with a glass of wine and reflect on our day, and also ponder what would we would do tomorrow. Though there is a noise ordinance, ironically there are freight trains that roll through the cities at night and blow the whistle at each crossing. We noticed that it went off a few times in the distance while we were sleeping. Be aware also that the streets in the neighborhood are swept once a week so you are required to move your vehicle. If you don't move your vehicle you will be ticketed. However, it was not hard to find a parking spot in front of the house and parking is free. I rate this place 5 stars, we had a great stay!
This was a little outside the historic district but walkable to Forsythe Park. It's a large property but I felt it was a little overpriced for two bedrooms and one full bathroom with a shower at $300 per night after the cleaning fee/taxes etc. We'd stay somewhere else next time as a result. The kitchen was very nice and very well equipped.
We are very aware that the VRBO customer is cost conscious and looking for a great deal. We price the property accordingly and strive to provide a great value. A single hotel room 2 blocks away is over $300 before the 13% taxes. This rental home is easily 4 times the size of a nice hotel room and has a fully equipped kitchen to save additional money preparing one's own meals when desired. We know that guests spend a lot of time scrolling over the choices and value is a top reason any particular home is chosen. Each bedroom has a great King size bed and its own TV. The living room has a third TV and pullout sofa. We have one full bathroom and one additional half bathroom which is also a huge benefit over a hotel room where your group shares a single bathroom. Regarding the historic district location, this is a one square mile area with a technical definition. We are one block within the boundary of this historic designation, not outside it. Visitors often seem to guess at what they imagine is the "historic district" assuming incorrectly that it is connected to the nightlife bar strip. For future travelers' reference the delineation of the Historic District is Gwinnett Street on the southern border. This home is on Hall Street. We look forward to providing future guests with a spacious and comfortable setting in our beautiful city.
Everything you want in Savannah!
We were very happy with this charming rental. Super close to Forsyth Park, loved the Mate Factor coffee shop on the street. Beautiful neighborhood that provided quiet evenings and mornings to sit on the front porch and back courtyard. Close to Kroger for groceries. Comfortable beds, all the necessities provided, lots of room in the bathroom. Highly recommend this beautiful home
Wonderful Apartment, Perfect Location
Four of us (2 couples in our 60s and 70s) spent four nights in this spacious apartment. Two large bedrooms both with doors to a side verandah that led to the backyard sitting area had very comfortable king size beds with soft linens, blankets and plump pillows. Plenty of closet and drawer space. The master bath was spacious with two sinks and the half bath made it convenient for four people. The living room/ dining room combination was also a comfortable space for four people and the kitchen had everything we needed. The front porch was another area we enjoyed having conversations or just sitting and relaxing. And then there is the perfect location. Although we had a car, this location made it possible for us to walk everywhere we wanted to go. You can’t go wrong staying in this apartment.
We loved staying here. Great location, plenty of room and fantastic outdoor areas. The only reason I did not give 5 stars, is because the the TV in living space was not working and the thermostat didn't seem to respond to trying to increase the temperature. It wasn't until our last day I notified them as we didn't miss the TV and it was our last night there when it got cold. I am confidant it would have been fixed if it was something bothering us. Over all, it was very nice and I would stay here again.
Close to the Mansion on Forsyth and its Poseidon Spa! One block from Brockington Hall wedding and special event venue! 3 blocks from Forsyth Park! One block from Kroger grocery store.
