Reviewer Comments:

Great location within walking distance to historic Savannah. The setting of the house was great, on a square. House is historic and gave an excellent feel of being local. Didn't feel as if it was very clean-furniture is worn and didn't look clean. Worst thing was the smell downstairs-not sure where it was coming from, but maybe from pet urine?

Charming old house

  • 1 of 5

We stayed at this house for 2 nights (supposed to stay for 3 but we left early because house is not very functional for a family with kids). The house is old and cute, but smaller than we expected. The AC and Heat does not work evently. We had to use the heat and this results in the upstairs being much hotter than downstairs. So we had to constantly change temperatures. The only full bathroom is upstairs has 1 small 5ft bathtub. In order to take shower you have to close a small round curtain all around which gives you 3 ft of room. The Stairs are very steep and not safe for small kids or older people. The half bathroom downstairs is very tiny. Kitchen lights are very low and you can't really cook after dark. There is no designated parking spot.

Reviewer Comments:

This cottage was absolutely lovely well situated for our stay in Savannah. I traveled with my 19 month old son and his grandparents. The convenience of having Green Square right outside the door was perfect. The horse carriages came through every morning, and he had a wonderful time "neigh-ing" at them each time they passed. The kitchen was a good size, and the outdoor spaces were quaint and useful. The upstairs bathroom worked well for the 3 adults, and toddler bath time, and we never ran out of hot water! The living spaces are HUGE! As is the master bedroom. I would counsel future renters that the bedrooms open into each other, which was great for our purposes, but maybe not for everyone. While a bit further from some of the main touristy areas of Savannah, we actually liked that, as we could walk anywhere and were outside of some of the louder revelry. Savannah Dream Vacations was very attentive and helpful! Overall we could not have asked for a better stay in Savannah.
