Special Note for Instant booking Guests! Please be sure to check the box for pets if you are bringing a pet. If you forget we will send you a separate payment request for the pet fee.

Jones E. Carriage House has it all; great location, dog friendly, luxury appointments, and off street parking with private entrance. The private entrance is from the lane behind our property. It's an easy walk to everywhere from here. Rents fast, so don't hesitate or your date will be gone. Experience the wonder of Savannah as it was meant to be explored on foot. This spacious, one room living area has everything you and your dog need to enjoy downtown Savannah. For those without Dogs we are people friendly as well. Jones E. carriage house has just been renovated and is clean, comfortable and beautifully decorated.

SPECIAL NOTE: The Carriage House will sleep three (two in a queen bed and the third using a our deluxe EZ bed ) The bed is a deluxe electrically powered inflatable bed with a nice padded cover. The bed is at normal height and on legs when fully inflated. You will need to deflate the bed during the day to move freely in the room.

Experience a fully stocked kitchen with granite counter tops and stainless appliances. The bed is queen size and there is an electric fireplace for a romantic ambiance with or without running the heater. Watch a flatscreen HDTV, read, or play games. Cook in, or take a short walk to one of the wonderful restaurants within a ten minute leisurely walk. You name it, this kitchen has it. Keurig coffee pot, toaster, cookware, bakeware and basic supplies such as oils and spices. High quality linens are included along with a hair dryer, shampoo, soaps, lotions, iron and ironing board.

The courtyard is shared with us and our dog (Gus). We live in the main house. The courtyard is complete with fountain and perfect for a morning coffee or a glass of wine in the evening. You might catch us using our Big Green Egg for our outdoor cooking and would be happy to share our hot coals with you. As native Californians we use wine for cooking, drinking and making new friends. You will have private access to the carriage house from the lane. There is plenty of free parking on the street. Just be mindful of street sweeping hours.

Jones E. Carriage House is walking distance to everything in historic downtown Savannah. Have coffee in the courtyard then walk 2 blocks to the famous Clary's Cafe on E. Jones St. Stroll a few more beautiful blocks for shopping or dining at the landmark restaurant of Mrs. Wilkes' Dining Room. Enjoy all the festivities Forsyth Park has to offer just a few blocks away. From the carriage house walk up Habersham St. through several lovely squares to River Street. Just as easily walk to City Market or to any of the many wonderful restaurants along the way. And of course the local dog park is just 1 block away! If you do run out of energy at the end of a long day, you simply need to hail one of the numerous Pedi-Cabs to bring you back home.

Jones E. Carriage House is perfect for anyone who is looking for a getaway and doesn't want to leave their dog at home. Stay for a long weekend or an entire week. You will love it. For a time my Husband and I worked as secret shoppers for the Ritz Carlton Hotel chain. Our job was to use all of the hotel services as undercover guests and report back to the management to help them maintain their 5 star rating. We learned a lot about how to treat guests with the care and attention they deserve. Give us a call and let us design the perfect 5 star experience for you. SVR-00518

About June Alston

Greg and I recently moved to downtown Savannah, and we love it. We bought this unique brick 1866 townhouse with a lovely courtyard and carriage house. We've already renovated the carriage house and are currently working on the main house. We are anxious to share our new home with family, friends, and new aquaintances.

We have traveled the world and so have met many wonderful people along the way. We hope to keep making new friends and creating new stories to share. Greg and I are both pharmacists. He continues to work as the Associate Dean of the Savannah campus of South University School of pharmacy. When we moved to Savannah I retired! I am now going to manage our carriage house vacation rental. I also quilt, quite a bit. You will see some of my art displayed in the carriage house.

June Alston purchased this house in 2016

Why June Alston chose Savannah

When looking to buy a home for our move to Savannah, we thoroughly searched every area surrounding downtown. But we just kept returning to downtown for the vibrant energy that exists in the historic city. Our historic 1866 brick townhouse met all of our needs and we know you will love it also. You can walk to everywhere from here but the nights are quiet and peaceful and away from the noise of the night spots.

People who have never been to Savannah can be fooled by looking at a map. The neighborhoods here change block by block. A 200 foot difference can make a huge difference in your experience. this property is Safe , Quiet and close in to all the must see sights.

What makes this house unique

Jones E. Carriage House is in the absolutely best location of historic downtown Savannah. Walk everywhere. You can park on our driveway or on the street with no meters, just be mindful of the street sweeping hours. Once you arrive never drive again. Come relax and have a great time in Savannah.

Beautiful Place in a Beautiful City

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully decorated studio apartment, fully stocked, dog friendly with super nice hosts. Totally enjoyed my stay, perfect if you are on your own or for a couple. Close in so you can walk just about anywhere you would want to go. The hosts (June & Greg) live in a beautiful house on the opposite side of a shared courtyard. They are very friendly and accommodating. The unit has everything you could possibly need. This is a gem I will return to.

Loved the Carriage House

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I rented the Carriage House while moving our son in for his second year at SCAD. It's a beautiful home in a nice neighborhood, with all the amenities. June and Greg were fantastic as hostess and host and June did a great job adding personal touches to the home so that we could enjoy our stay. A welcome basket greeted us upon our arrival and the kitchen and fridge were stocked with some refreshments that we were free to use. Communication prior to our arrival was very simple and June made sure that we had all of the information that we needed in order to make our arrival go smoothly. Everything about this rental was easy and a pleasure, and the home is beautiful and comfortable. Oh, and we can't forget a shout-out to June and Greg's dog, Gus, who does a great job making his guests feel at home.

Wonderful place for a getaway for 2

  • 5 of 5

We loved the carriage house room! Very comfortable place to unwind after a day exploring Savannah. It had everything we needed for a pleasant stay. June & Greg were wonderful hosts. We would (and already have!) recommend Jones E Carriage house to anyone. We hope to return soon!

Sanctuary in a quiet part of the Historic District

  • 5 of 5

June, her husband Greg, and dog Gus were wonderful hosts. They greeted us when we arrived and provided a wealth of information about local restaurants and attractions. We took advantage of many of the restaurant recommendations, and were not disappointed. We particularly enjoyed the Public Kitchen & Bar, J. Christopher's, and Rocks on the Roof.

Some particulars re the carriage house:

-It is in a quiet neighborhood just a few blocks from Clary's.

-It is a short walk to Forsyth Park, River Street, and the attractions in the Historic District.

-It overlooks a nice, sizeable courtyard that is available for your use.

-It is very clean and well-maintained.

-Towels and beach chairs were provided for trips to Tybee Island.

-A pleasant surprise for us was the size of the carriage house; it's larger than it looks in the photos and we found it to be the perfect size for two people.

We would definitely stay here again, and hope to do so in the future.

Thank you June, Greg, and Gus!
