About Jennifer Restivo

This is our second VRBO property. We take pride in making every stay memorable. We are very proactive and will be there for you during your stay. We have 5 rental properties and have been in Savannah for 8 1/2 years. We love it here!!!!!

Jennifer Restivo purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Jennifer Restivo chose Savannah

This property is cute and reasonably priced. Its in the historic district! To my knowledge this property is the best value in town. You don't need a car as Kroger grocery store is a 5 minute walk. We have pedi-cabs that will pick you up as well as taxis.

What makes this cottage unique

Totally renovated, but still has all the old charm of when it was built in 1900!!!

Guestbook comments from the owner

This was the first time ever spending Thanksgiving away from home, but it has been truly worth the trip to Savannah.

The duplex was more than we anticipated. It was the perfect fit for the four of us. Because the weather was perfect, we didn't spend much time inside. When we were here, the accommodations were spot on.

This VRBO has been a very nice experience. The duplex is decorated beautifully and so clean. To have all the extras provided, toiletries especially, is a nice added touch.

The only thing I didn't expect was the street noise. But living out in the country and coming to the city, I should have known.

It was still worth it!

Great location! Perfect for our wedding!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was everything we hoped it would be. We researched quite a bit beforehand and were not disappointed when we arrived. The place was so comfortable and had everything we needed. Not long before the trip we decided to get married while in Savannah and the cottage turned out to be the perfect spot for our ceremony. We brought some china and bought flowers and a cake locally. The owner was so nice and helpful with local info. We felt like we lived in Savannah by the end of our week. Location and price couldn't be beat for us! We will be returning, but it seems the cat is out of the bag and the place rents far in advance! Don't hesitate if you see an opening!

Loved the cottage!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was very cozy and cute and we enjoyed our stay very much. The cottage sits on a corner of a very busy street so at times was rather noisy but overall it was the perfect place for our girlfriend weekend getaway!!

Everything was nice and very clean and comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

We ended up staying in the house all the days we rented. It was a trip for My Mom and Aunts Birthday. My Mom ended up not feeling well due to change in meds. I had surgery a week before and was more than anticipated. So we spent almost the whole time inside. Our trip was still nice because we got to spend time together and the place was clean and comfortable other than a few groceries we picked up at Kroger 5mins away we had absolutely everything we needed. The back quaint patio was nice to sit and chat. So ispite of all the hurdles it was still a good trip spending time with family and relaxing some. Thank You so much for sharing your home. P.S. We plan on returning when all is well and get out and explore! We hope to come back here and stay again. It is close to everything you may want to do. I will recommend to my friends whom travel to Savannah a couple of times a year.

Adorable Cottage

  • 4 of 5

This property is a great choice when staying in Savannah. It is within walking distance of coffee shops, grocery stores and Forsyth Park. River Street maybe a little far to walk to with small children. This property was impeccably clean and beautifully decorated. The kitchen was fully equipped and bed rooms were comfortable. I would stay here again when visiting Savannah. The only negative comment I could make was that the house is on a busy street so at night there is street noise from cars passing by. If you are a light sleeper it might bother you if staying in the bedroom closest to the street. Other than that this is an awesome property!

Awesome Place for a Ladies Trip

  • 5 of 5

This place was absolutely amazing and had all the items that a ladies trip needs. The beds were comfortable and clean. Not to mention that there was a washer and dryer which allowed us to clean our clothes prior to returning home. This location is relatively close to the river front and has plenty of great attractions close by. Also Tybee beach is just a short drive away. I would totally stay again!

Very clean and comfy

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here 2 nights, it's a very nice duplex. We weren't sure about the location but it was a very short drive to both Tybee and River street. It is nicely decorated and the beds are comfortable. We would stay here again.

There is a great (free) dog park across the street. There is also a fun playground for kids. The home is less than a mile to River Street and about a 5 minute walk to Kroger and Forsyth Park.
