Overview

About the property

Send me an email inquiry or just call or text me.

This rental is very popular so if your dates are taken please consider one of the other 1BR/1BA listings I handle. If you do not need a lot of space check my new 'tiny house' listing on this same block of Jones St go to VRBO # 679559

No stairs here, and also no step-down or basement feel to this beautiful ground floor 900 square foot one-bedroom apartment with fully updated kitchen & decor. Walking distance to anything in the Historic District. Situated between Forsyth Park (0.4 miles south of the house) and the River (0.7 miles north of the house) Jones Street is known as the prettiest street in Savannah. Jones is halfway between Forsyth Park and the River making it the definition of 'centrally located'.

Bedroom has a fabulous King size bed as well as a reading sofa. There is a 2nd flat screen tv in the bedroom which is totally separate from the Living Room for privacy. There is a Queen pullout sofa in the beautifully decorated living room. The bathroom is off of the kitchen.

Beautiful furnished back patio is yours to enjoy. Partially covered and partially sunny for the best of both worlds! Relax outdoors under a ceiling fan for breakfast or cocktail hour or even a meal if you tire of dining out!

Prime location, you will see horse drawn carriage tours passing right by your front door. No vehicle needed if you prefer to walk or take a very short taxi or pedicab ride to all the restaurants and nightlife destinations we have. One short block from Whitefield Square and also Troupe Square!

VERY SECURE, this house has bars on the windows and doors. You will see this on many houses in Savannah and the owners think it's pretty convenient! This is a historical feature that may seem extreme to some, especially on the prettiest street in town but one thing is for sure-- you can lock the place down like 'Fort Knox' if you want to!

Parking is free on-street and generally very easy. Most of our guests park right outside the apartment door.

Bed linens and towels provided.

This home is steps away from Firefly Cafe as well as the famous breakfast spot Clary's open 7 days a week. There is a fine dining restaurant, Liberty Street Grill, a couple of blocks away. Johnnie Ganem's Winery (and liquor store), also a local tradition, is a stroll away through Troupe Square. Walk less than a mile to Broughton Street or River Street and you will have a vast selection of other amazing dining and night life options.

The 'main house' upstairs is available on VRBO as well under listing 394500. It has 2 bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms, all totally updated with high end finishes in all bathrooms and kitchen. Perfect if you are looking for family reunion type accomodations and need another rental close to the garden level.

Check in after 3pm, checkout by 11am.

Approval for 1-night stay will be on a case by case basis. There is a $50 single night surcharge in addition to the standard nightly rate. Email or Call to find out if your single night is possible.

Cancellation Policy: There is no refund for the first payment if you book on this advertising platform but they offer trip cancelation insurance during online checkout. You will not owe the 2nd half if you cancel more than 30 days before you arrive. Feel free to call for clarification.

About Mary Anderson

Hello my name is Mary! I am the property manager for this rental (which is also my former home) and I have lived in Savannah for over 12 years. I am also a licensed real estate agent in the state of Georgia. Feel confident renting from a long time resident and business owner with strong ties in the Savannah community. I manage property for my friends and neighbors all over downtown!

Mary Anderson purchased this apartment in 2008

Why Mary Anderson chose Beach Institute

Savannah's downtown is such a unique and beautiful design that many people who have traveled around the world name our city as their favorite place. The public green space carefully preserved throughout the downtown and the mix of gorgeous homes, shops, museums and restaurants is what makes the 1-mile Historic District a destination for over 12 million tourists a year.

What makes this apartment unique

When my husband and I lived in this home, we loved walking around our beautiful neighborhood and dining out frequently. The location, just steps from restaurants such as the Firefly Cafe as well as the Broughton Street nightlife, is the top feature of this home. Jones Street is known as the most beautiful street in Savannah, due to its grand width, its historic brick foundation and the gorgeous live oaks mixed with magnolias and palm trees. Additionally, for a single bedroom rental this apartment has a large scale including a nice ceiling height that will not make you feel closed in or have a 'rabbit warren' affect. We have decorated the entire apartment in a fresh clean contemporary fashion to appeal to guests of all ages.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My experience was world class from the moment I made the inquiry to the moment we left. Mary anderson was a dream to work with. She was responsive and very available via phone or email. The unit was as described: clean and well appointed right in the Historic District of Savannah. We were actually 2 couples. The LR sofa pulls out as a hide-a-bed. As there was an alternate entrance in the back through the patio, the living room could actually be used as a private bedroom space. The covered patio made for a congenial social place to gather and share food and wine. The convenience of a large supermarket nearby was a huge plus.

Great getaway and easy little town to relax and enjoy great food with a very friendly atmosphere. The locals were inviting and so nice. Definitely see why people fall in love and stay.

Charming apartment and convenient location.

  • 5 of 5

Even in 40 degree weather we walked to everything. We loved the place- it had everything we needed for a few days stay, including a wonderful little electric fireplace/heater that I covet! Bed and bedding were comfy and soft, kitchen was well supplied. We would stay again, and hope for warmer weather next time to be able to enjoy the outdoor patio.

Great location, and had everything we needed

  • 5 of 5

The property manager was very easy to work with. She sent easy instructions on how to access the rental. Everything was clean and the pictures were accurate. The location was the best part, we were able to walk to everything. The street sweepers are annoying if you are going to stay on the weekend. You can't park on one side of the street on Friday night, and then you can't park on the other side of the street on Saturday night. But you can park a street down, and you won't have to worry about moving your car. The only negative thing I would have to say is that the toilet paper is very cheap and thin, it is the Scott one ply brand. Everything else was great. I would stay here again.

Good location

  • 4 of 5

This was a nice location but be prepared to walk. We enjoyed the walking through all the historic streets. The apartment is cozy and had a nice backyard porch. It could use some updated items. Newer linens and towels are needed. A set of matching glasses in the kitchen.

Overall it is a good place.

Owner's Response: As always, direct feedback via call text or email is appreciated since it is faster. I did not get this information about anyone wishing for new glasses or towels for over 2 weeks after their departure (reviews are delayed). The towels had been laundered enough to seem worn, although not stained at all and therefore the maid had not expressed concern. I agreed with this reviewer upon careful consideration and the bath towels have been replaced. The bed linens are all new. Matching cute new drinking glasses are now in the cupboard to replace/supplement some mismatched ones. We totally appreciate feedback for easily acheivable aesthetic improvements like these! .

My family and I had a wonderful stay close to downtown activity. Very quiet and pretty neighborhood

  • 4 of 5

I was so pleased with the apartment. It was clean and well cared for with all the amenities provided. The only exception was coffee which we missed. We were so busy visiting during the day that it was a blessing to come “home” and rest. We felt safe and completely at home here. Mary was wonderful to work with. This apartment was so charming and quiet. I would love to come back and stay here again!

Owner's Response: Even though this rental does not technically provide food items or groceries, I actually do try to provide coffee as often as possible. I am really sorry none was here for this guest. I will do better in the future and have asked the maid to help me by reminding me if it is all gone but the grocery store is less than half a mile away if we miss it! The items the maid is focused on stocking for the guests are toilet paper, bath soap, dish soap and the like. Coffee is more of an owner bonus that I provide without bothering the maid about it but I will focus on keeping it stocked! I also provide a free bottle of wine as often as possible so I really do want to offer small conveniences to make my guests feel welcome.

Great, comfortable apartment for business trip

  • 5 of 5

Just in town for two nights on business, and I wish Incould have stayed on longer! Lovely apartment in a great location. I felt like a local instantly, rolling out each morning onto the prettiest street in town.
