__________________________

*** We are registered with the City of Savannah as a Short Term Vacation Rental. Jingle Bells Square Cottage - SVR-00032 ***

___________________________

*** Savannah is booming! A record number of building permits have been issued in the past 12 months. It’s hard to find a neighborhood where there isn’t a building project going on. There is currently construction in progress across from the rear of our cottage. Most of our guests spend the day out and about in Savannah, so we don’t think this project will be an inconvenience during your visit.

___________________________

*** Need something larger? We have another property in the same neighborhood - 2 BR 2.5 BA.

Listing # 639895 ***

___________________________

*** Important: Our property is in a quiet residential neighborhood. Savannah has strict noise ordinances. Complaints from neighbors result in a $500 fine for the property owner.

*** The Principal Tenant must be 25 or older.

While he was the organist and music director of Savannah’s Unitarian Church, which faces onto Troup Square, the Reverend John Pierpont Jr. wrote the beloved Christmas song Jingle Bells, copyrighted in 1857. In 1985, the City of Savannah placed a plaque in Troup Square to commemorate the song and its Savannah roots.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Built in 1900, our cottage is in a quiet residential neighborhood 50 yards from Troup Square. The one bedroom, one bath property is single storey. Fully renovated in 2011, it has off-street parking for one small car and ample free street parking—no meters to feed with quarters or $7.00 daily parking permits required. Within easy walking distance of restaurants (there is one within 100 yards), the Savannah riverfront, and all of the fun and fascination of pre-Civil War historic architecture, beautiful landscaping, antique shops, etc.

About Owner

We are a nearing-retirement age couple from the New York City area with backgrounds in fine arts and restoration, an appreciation for eccentricity, and a limited amount of patience for shoveling snow - so Savannah is perfect for us.

Owner purchased this cottage in 2007

Why Owner chose Savannah

When our son was clever enough to pass up the blustery New York area where he was born and enrolled in the Savannah College of Art & Design (SCAD) in animation in 2004 we began thinking about escaping ourselves - at least for visits. He graduated in 2008 and has moved on to other challenges but we continue to be fascinated by Savannah, one of the most magical cities in the US.

What makes this cottage unique

For short and longer term visits we have stayed in quite a few Savannah hotels and a dozen or so furnished vacation rentals, so we have a good idea of what we want to find to make us comfortable, which has guided us in renovating and furnishing this cottage.

It was like staying at a friend's house

  • 5 of 5

Jingle Bell Cottage is the best equipped rental that we have ever stayed in. The kitchen was fully stocked with anything we could ever want to use, as well as spices, olive oil, and household items. There were also books, games and puzzles in the living room. My girls slept on the queen sofa/air bed without complaint and had plenty of linens and blankets.

We had a little trouble with some TV channels having a black screen though the sound was on, but we weren't in Savannah for TV anyway.

Charming cottage with all the necessities AND a great location!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, son, sister, and I stayed at the Jingle Bells Square Cottage during our first visit to Savannah from July 1-5 and we loved every minute of it. This cottage was more than the ordinary rental. It was full of character and charm, but still felt like home- so comfortable with all our basic needs provided. All the instructions were clear, including light switches that were all labeled and how to use the TV/DVD/cable. The other reviews were accurate when they describe the sofabed as very comfortable. We had never seen a sofabed like this which could be inflated like an airbed (but without those annoying ridges). Everything was so clean, kitchen had all the basic necessities (good quality kitchenware & loved the gas stove!), A/C was such a relief after a hot day of sightseeing, having the washer/dryer was so convenient. Yes, the parking spot was a bit tight, but it still worked and we felt more at ease parking in the spot than parking on the street (which had plentiful spots). The location was great also! We walked to the Krogers grocery store on our first morning for breakfast supplies. River Street was close by, as well as many great eateries. We can't wait to return to Savannah again and hope to stay at the Jingle Bells Square Cottage again! Thank you!

The June weather is hot and muggy, but this lovely cottage is cool and crisp. It's such a delight to explore the city by day and return to a comfortable, clean place to rest and unwind. Thanks so much for your attention to detail!
