PLEASE NOTE as of April 2017 the new luxury hotel they are constructing behind this home is getting closer to completion but will be worked on for several more months. Please note that, especially late sleepers or those who want to stay home during the day may be bothered by the construction truck noises. They are permitted to start as early as 7am per commercial district ordinances. We apologize for this inconvenience. We do provide white noise (noise cancelation) machines to lessen the construction sounds.

One off-street parking spot dedicated to this rental makes this an ideal place to spend some time exploring, with your home base at the center of the Landmark Historic District!

'J Christopher's' is a yummy breakfast, brunch and lunch spot. It is only 266 feet from this apartment so roll out of bed and beat the crowd to this popular weekend brunch spot.

'BT Byrd's' at 102 E Liberty is 463 feet from this apartment. They serve coffee, hand crafted soda, baked goods and gourmet cookies.

About Mary Anderson

This property is owned by an Innkeper (the 17hundred90 Inn owner who lives right around the corner) and reservations for this rental are managed by Mary Anderson, a licensed Realtor.

Why Mary Anderson chose Historic District - North

The location is so desirable! This is a residential area (not above a bar) but is half a block away from a coffee shop bakery, a fine dining restaurant, a microbrew beer store, a casual breakfast and lunch restaurant and tons of tourist destinations are within a half mile in any direction!!

What makes this apartment unique

Having one dedicated parking spot is a huge relief for those who dread parallel parking or the stress of hunting for a spot in a busy area of town.

Guestbook comments from the manager

This location was fabulous! I hadn't done a ton of research into the city's layout before I booked, and was very pleasantly surprised to find how convenient the location was.



It is in the heart of the historic district, just a few minutes' walk to River Street, Forsyth Park, or anywhere else in the historic area. The beautiful Colonial Park Cemetary is right across the street. Many fabulous restaurants are within just a few blocks (no need to go to River Street for food). Offstreet parking was a plus.

Clean and Perfect for active travelers

  • 5 of 5

So to start, I did not hear any construction during our stay, and what we did hear was very minimal, mostly deliveries of furniture to the new hotel behind it. The apartment was very clean, the location was excellent, the furniture could use some updating but we barely used it as we spent most of our time out on the town. One recommendation I do have would be some sort of electronic lock system because have a set of keys all the time was a little tedious especially if your group splits and does separate activities. But thanks again for the stay!

RENTERS BEWARE! ACTIVE CONSTRUCTION SITE! LEVEL OF NOISE-VERY HIGH

  • 2 of 5

We have been using HomeAway/VRBO for several years in several states and overseas. We feel a responsibility to clarify the misleading information we received for benefit of future renters.

After reading the reviews of this potential rental for our stay in Savannah the last week of February 2018, I contacted the property Manager via phone on January 29th regarding the noise level from the construction behind the property. I was told in that conversation that the construction was mostly complete but that landscaping and some interior work may still be ongoing. I was also told that the work crews should be done by 4:30 pm and not begin work until 8:00 am. I also received the following direct quote on January 29th from the property Manager from Savannah Luxury Rentals: “THE HOTEL IS SCHEDULED TO OPEN NEXT MONTH, SO THE CONSTRUCTION IS NEARLY DONE. THERE IS MAINLY LANDSCAPING AND FINISHING INTERIOR WORK HAPPENING NOW, SO I (PROPERTY MANAGER) THINK NOISE IS MUCH LESS OF A CONCERN NOW”

Much to our dismay, this was far from accurate. The two buildings behind the apartment were active construction sites. Active from 7:00 am to 5:00 pm or later every day, except Monday when they started at 5:45 am unloading materials in front of the apartment and moving them to the rear of the apartment and lifting them to upper floors with a crane. The area was loud, very dusty and with constant beeping of machines, grinders, cranes, and forklift trucks moving about.

I am fully aware that the property manager of this apartment is not responsible for nor has any control over the construction. However, she does have the responsibility to be fully Forthright when questioned about the construction and noise intrusion visitors will endure. I would have expected more from a HomeAway Premier Partner! In the short time we were there, we spoke to the many construction crews and were told that they were behind schedule and will work when needed to complete for an opening date in Mid May. This would have been good to know when making a decision.

While this property is in a wonderful location and the problems we faced did not take away from our enjoyment of this wonderful city, our next visit will not include this area.

Owner's Response: I am so sorry this guest was unhappy and as soon as she let me know on day 2 of her 6 night stay I offered to refund her if she did not want to stay. She told me that was not a viable option because it would be too hard to find another place to stay. I told her I had many choices for her to move to for her next 4 nights all within the Historic District and it was a shame for her to stay where she was not happy but for some reason she was miffed at that offer and told me the conversation was over. The hotel construction disclosure comment has been on our public advertisement for about a year and will remain until the activity is completely finished. The information this guest got directly from the hotel construction workers was accurate, they were behind on their opening date and working overtime. This hotel is called Perry Lane Hotel and there have been may press releases regarding it's target opening date. I am sorry anyone on my staff relayed anything remotely positive in January but we did believe their opening date target would be before busy spring season in Savannah as they had announced. The construction of this luxury hotel affects many vacation rentals, permanent residents and businesses. It has caused the owner of this rental, along with myself, many headaches because we cannot stand for our guests to be disturbed and it is completely out of our control. We are beyond grateful for the many guests who have stayed during this time who have found the positive aspects of this central location to outweigh the negative. We do look forward to a time in the near future when the hotel is open and our guests can hopefully benefit from another nice restaurant nearby, to add to the many that currently exist here in the center of the Landmark Historic District.

Enjoyable stay with family .

  • 3 of 5

Overall the apartment was ok. Location was great, downsides there were only 3 wash cloths

provided for 5 of us. A few things needed fixed. The bathroom door knob was not working, the king bed was very squeeky. It was very noisy because of construction , parking was somewhat of a problem but realize these thing we're out of her control. We truly did enjoy our stay in Savannah.

Great location. Construction noise.

  • 3 of 5

Great location!! Construction occurring behind the apartment. Construction began at 630am each morning waking us up. Was not told by realtor that the construction was occurring when booked apartment. Apartment located on major street, lots of late night noise. Was told by realtor to look for black awning on outside of front door when locating property. Huge tree in front of front door and not able to see awning. Need to update pictures when advertising. Parking space was provided with apartment, but due to construction occurring getting to parking space was a huge pain!

Owner's Response: Glad to see this person enjoyed this location. Our ad has had a note about the hotel construction behind this building for many months, we are sorry this person did not notice that in the information. Many people have stayed and been fine with it, but others have been bothered, such as this person. The oak tree has been in front of the house for many many years and updating the photos would not change anything since the tree is very old and the photos are from last year. The house numbers are sequentially ordered (and all booked guests get the physical address of this home) so if you do not instantly recognize the black awning from the photo simply read the neighboring house numbers which are not blocked by the tree and find your door that way. This is a very central area on a major street downtown and easy to find using a basic map but GPS easily takes you to the right location as well.

Great, convenient location for sightseeing in the historic district

  • 4 of 5

We were quite pleased with the apartment. My only complaint is that the bed in the master bedroom was very noisy when you moved even a little.

Perfect Location!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is in a great location and was very clean and comfortable. I would advise providing better instructions for finding the parking pad and adding a few chairs in the courtyard for morning coffee. We arrived late and struggled finding the parking pad. I walked down the street and enjoyed my coffee in a park, but the apartment does have a beautiful shared courtyard, just no chairs. I would stay here again. Stacey Riley, Donalsonville,Ga
