Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Lovely apartment in a perfect location! We really enjoyed our stay here. There was some muffled yipping of a little dog that was kind of annoying a couple times, but other than that it was very quiet even though it is right on the street.

Owner's Response: The owners do live upstairs in the main house with their 2 small dogs. They have a totally separate entrance but sometimes you can hear the dogs. We try hard to keep that limited to the daytime. Thank you to all of our lovely guests who enjoy their stay at this super convenient spot in downtown Savannah and leave their feedback.

Walker's Paradise, yes! However, the air return can keep you awake at night.

  • 4 of 5

This apartment was great for being convenient to the tourist parts of town. It's in a nice, quiet area and really close to bars and restaurants. My husband and I did have some trouble sleeping since the air return is right by the bed and we had to use the heater. Even with waking in the night, we would stay here again. We did hear the dog that previous reviewers mentioned but it was only during the day and only one tiny bark, easy peasy. For an old building, this unit is maintained and has everything you could need for a weekend trip!

great location and spacious accomodation

  • 4 of 5

This was perfectly located for access to great walking in the historic district. The apartment was generally comfortable with a spacious living room and bedroom. Only problem in the bedroom was that the heat blasted right onto one side of the bed (and outside temps were unusually cold so we had to have heat). Kitchen and bathroom were both well equipped, and very clean. Overall, this is a great place to stay!

Convenient, walkable, clean

  • 4 of 5

The property was clean and seemed well kept, and was a short walk to everything. We easily walked to the car side of Forsyth Park and down to the river.

An ideal location and aptly named property...truly a Walker's Paradise.

  • 5 of 5

This property is the basement floor of a very old house located a few short blocks from the Savannah River. We were able to score between seven and ten miles of walking the two full days in Savannah. The property has a comfortable kingsize bed. Due to the location, we really did not spend much time in the apartment. Instead we enjoyed the sights and sounds of Savannah. Good food, very friendly people and a gorgeous environment made this one of the finest short vacations we've ever had. We will return to Savannah and to this property soon.

Close to everything

  • 4 of 5

First the pros:

LOCATION. You can walk to everything you need and want within minutes. It is great to be able to zip back to the apartment and take a nap in the cool on a hot summer day. It is down the street from 17hundred90, the best pub to visit in the city. You must go there if you visit Savannah.

CLEAN. There was no problem with cleanliness other than the very old carpet. (I would place hardwood down and a nice rug if I were the owner)

PARKING: Get a parking pass from the city and park right in front of the house. It was great. We didn't move the car.

FAIRLY SPACIOUS. For three people, there was enough space. One bathroom is always hard when your family is used to having their own. It's such a private space to share, but we made it work. We ran out of towels but washed them in the washer and dryer, so no problem.

KITCHEN: A fully stocked kitchen with full sized coffee maker is provided. I loved the beautiful teacups in the cupboard!

Now the cons:

DOGS: The number one complaint I have was the constant, incessant barking of the dogs upstairs. We brought along a white noise machine after reading the reviews from others, or we would have gotten no sleep. The dogs bark every time someone walks by the house, and in a city like Savannah, that is all night long. They are quite cute sitting up in the window spying on us, though.

CLEANING SUPPLIES: Under the kitchen sink there is a dish drain with only a very used old sponge to clean the dishes. I washed a glass with a paper towel before using it.

SMELL: If you have never smelled an older house, you might be shocked. When we first opened the door, it smelled like the owner from 1809 had died somewhere in there. It is an old, basement, musty, almost (rat) smell. We opened the window when we first arrived to try to air it out, but in doing so, I think we let in a few mosquitos. Once you have been in the place for a bit, you get used to the smell, but each time you go out and come back in, you smell it again. If they would replace the old worn carpet with hardwood, It might take care of the problem.

All in all, you are not going to get the experience in any hotel room that you get staying in this historic old home. I would definitely stay again, that is, if they would have me back after my constructive criticism. So take some Fabreeze, a white noise machine because bark collars are cruel, and bring some extra cleaning towels.
