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.

Charming apartment on the water!

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect location for our short trip to Savannah. We were able to walk to everything in the historic downtown area and had two of our best meals in the same building. The shrimp and grits at the Boar's Head were the best! Breakfast at Two Cracked Eggs was huge and delicious, we've never seen biscuits that big!

The apartment is simply decorated allowing the history of the building speak for itself. We enjoyed sharing a glass of wine and watching people and ships from balcony. The entire home was very clean and the kitchen had everything a cook would need, although with all the great restaurants we limited our use to the coffee pot and corkscrew. I didn't look at a map before we drove into Savannah and had a little trouble figuring out where to park. A text to the owner was answered immediately with a phone call, she was very nice and helpful. Hint: do not go down the ramp to River Street even if your GPS tells you to, rather pull into the lot at the top of the ramp. We look forward to a return trip to Savannah and will likely stay here again. Thanks!

Spectacular view & location!!

  • 5 of 5

This River St. condo is wonderful! The location to shops, restaurants and so much history is unbeatable. Watching the large cargo ships go by is always such a treat. The condo was comfortably appointed and had everything we needed. We hope to be back!

(The service and food at Boars Head, in the same building as the condo, was fantastic - get the shrimp and grits!!)

Gorgeous rental in the perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for four nights. We could not have been happier! The apartment is so beautiful and spotlessly clean. The location could not have been more perfect. Right on the river and walking distance to all major sites. Thank you Courtney for an amazing stay!!!
