Jerry purchased this House in 2008
Why Jerry chose Midtown
This house caught our attention because of its quirky eclectic look and feel. The house is interesting, and has a very relaxing 'homey' atmosphere. Visit online at comevisitusinsavannah.
What makes this House unique
We didn't see anymore houses in Savannah with an atrium from the first floor to the second, a built-in water fall in the wall, and a wall-to-wall chalk board in the kid's room. something for everyone! The Studio Suite was an added bonus offering a private, intimate place for Two--rented separately. Great for an individual (parents or grandparents) or couples who want a romantic 'getaway' just for Two.

Pleasant and comfortable
Very clean and comfortable home, plenty of room for a large group. Very pleased with Management. A very nice stay and would recommend it.
Basically pleased with the house. Convenient location to activities we were interested in. Outside appearance of house was deceiving, but the inside was a pleasant surprise.The bedrooms on 2nd and 3rd floor could be a problem for those with mobility issues.The shrubbery outside seems like it could use some attention. The overall appearance of the neighborhood was concerning although there were no incidents. Jerry was very easy to work with prior and during our stay. Would recommend this property.
First impressions are lasting. Outside need to be updated.
My experience was wonderful. I received the help that I needed and was grateful.
large group accommodating
We had a group of 10 and the house was great and very accommodating. There were plenty of towels and beds. It was a quick Uber ride to River Street, very close to beautiful Forsyth Park and the historic district is simply beautiful. Driving in at first seemed a little sketch, but once inside the home is a home, very comfortable and nice. Also the area is very quiet and peaceful. Jerry was very quick to respond and provides excellent instructions for the house. We absolutely LOVED our stay!! Highly recommend this home.
We loved our stay at Jerry's house. The house comfortably fit the 7 of us, and was the perfect location. Jerry was very responsive and a great host. I would highly recommend this place to anyone visiting Savannah.
Cousins Reunion in Savannah
Our family enjoyed our accommodations very much. The house was very comfortable and inviting for our party of 8. Close to downtown Savannah, Tybee Island and a Kroger grocery store was about 2 miles away. The kitchen was loaded so that really made you feel right at home.
The only downside would be if you have issues with steps then this house would not work for you.
Located in the Historic Thomas Square District...the entire Historic District is within a 2 mile walk radius.
We are between downtown and midtown. There are some restaurants and Cafe's (1--2 blocks), and some of the nicest antique stores (4) with in 2 blocks in either direction.
The house is about 20 minutes from Tybee Beaches, Forsyth Park is 0.9 miles (about 10 blocks), Kroger (the only chain grocery store downtown) is 0.8 miles (about 8 1/2 blocks), and 39 blocks from River St. We walk to River St, and we walk the park everyday.
Savannah has lots of foot traffic, and it is a multi-cultural society. You will see locals, and tourists at "hang-out" spots throughout the city. It is a very dog friendly city and most sidewalk cafes and businesses put out water for you pets.
If you are going to take a tour, you can park at the Visitor's Center for free. Also, there is a free shuttle around town (the CAT shuttle--maps available). Some of our guests tells us that the Visitor's Center offers a city-wide parking pass.
There is a Middle Eastern Deli, one block from the house. And one of the best restaurants (Elizabeth's On 37th) is only 2--3 blocks. There is a new restaurant (the Green Truck) 1.5 blocks away that has just been voted as having the best hamburgers in Savannah. Sammy Green's Subs and sandwiches is about 6 blocks away. There is a Grits 'n Gravy breakfast/sandwich shop 2 blocks away.
