Overview

About the property

1 Br, 1 Bath, Sleeps 4. Note to guests - Teen and adult children only please.

226 East Bay St. #SVR-00548

Amazing waterfront views from our balcony overlooking River Street and the Savannah River. Watch the people and activity below as boats and cargo ships pass by on the river.

Renovated large, open space with original heart pine floors, exposed brick walls, fully equipped kitchen, plantation shutters and french doors to the balcony with a view of the Savannah River and River Street below. All the comforts of home with WiFi, HDTV, luxury linens, laundry room, and more.

A short walk to everything including Savannah's City Market, Ellis Square, Paula Deen's 'Lady & Sons' and 'The Olde Pink House' restaurants. Antique stores, museums, and over 100 shops, restaurants, and boutiques that line River Street in beautiful downtown Savannah.

Park your car and walk everywhere. Our location is so convenient that most of our guests just park their car for the entire stay!

A FREE shuttle service - 'DOT' - is also available to take you around downtown Savannah and it has a stop on Bay St., just outside our location.

Notes to guests:

~ This unit is on the second floor and has a flight of 22 stairs (please see photos). It is not wheelchair accessible or appropriate for young children.

~ The balcony is historic. Please use at your own risk/discretion.

~ The address is 226 E. Bay St. 31401. It is on the north side of Bay St. between Abercorn and Lincoln St. Turn on the "Lincoln St Ramp" entrance (but don't go down the ramp). The apartment is straight ahead and to the right.

Historic information from the owner:

This five story building was constructed in 1859 by John Stoddard, two years before the outbreak of the American Civil War. Collectively, the block of buildings is known as Stoddard's Lower Range. Construction is joisted masonry with heart pine beams and floors and Okefenokee cypress window frames. The walls of the first three levels consist not only of Savannah Gray brick but also of ship ballaststone and coral. Ships arriving in the port would offload ballast replacing it with cotton and naval stores for the homeward bound leg of their voyage. The discarded ballast material was abundant and less expensive than brick. Iron bridges provided not only access to the building's upper stories but also were used by the Factors to inspect and bid on the cotton crop. The street name, Factor's Walk derives from this practice.

The building was purchased by my family from John Stoddard's great grandson in 1945. At one time, 226 E Bay was the residence of the captain of the port of Savannah, Frank Spenser and his wife Anna. I recall the captain's homage to his seafaring days, a port hole in the front door. Mrs. Spenser continued to reside in the apartment after Captain Spenser's death until the early 1960's. The painting on the mantel, 'Anna's Walk' was named in her honor by the artist, Ray Ellis. After Mrs. Spenser, the Savannah artist Augusta Olesheig occupied the apartment as her residence and studio.

Enjoy your stay.

Stayed here for a long weekend in March. It is very spacious and meticulously clean. Everything you need for a nice weekend. Easy walking to pretty much everything. We would return without hesitation.

Great location, comfortable space

  • 5 of 5

I would have given 4.5 stars if possible. The location was great, and it was cool looking right over River Street. The bed was very comfortable. Parking was easy. The walls seemed a little thin and you can hear the neighbors some (although not well enough to actually hear what they are saying, so still pretty private). A little general maintenance, such as reattaching the doorknob on the door out to the balcony would be nice. Overall, it was pretty much what we expected. We enjoyed our stay.

wonderful !

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at this condo on River street.We have already booked it again in spring. The location is excellent, the views of the river fantastic but mostly we love the condo itself. It is very well stocked, extremely clean and comfortable, and the perfect romantic get away for a couple!! Little things like plush plentiful towels, comfy bed, well stocked kitchen with better than average knives pots and pans, coffee and some condiments included, paper goods ,etc. Check in is a breeze..totally hassle free..you can pull your car up to the front door unload your belongings and retrieve the parking garage pass..only a few blocks away, ( note the owner does charge you extra for the parking pass)

We found it quiet at night..and unlike some other riverfront rentals, the small balcony isn't shared with the condo next door.loved sitting out watching the big container ships coming and going. If you are looking for an elegant upscale place to stay instead of a hotel, this is a great choice!

Gorgeous views, very comfortable bed and furniture. The kitchen was well stocked and we had everything we needed. The location is perfect! We walked everywhere and we were always within a short walk of great food and beautiful surroundings. We would stay here again in a heartbeat!

Everything as advertised and then some.

  • 5 of 5

Location, location, location. Especially the veranda which provided some excellent photography opportunities. Everything about the rental space was top shelf and Cortney was especially easy to communicate with. So many options for food and beverage, all within walking distance and with great menu options. My wife and I were thoroughly impressed and hope to return.
