The staff was great. We never had to call them during our stay because they made sure we were already equipped with everything before we got to our destination. The videos that help you get in the house was so helpful and the recommendations of places to go was right on point. I loved how the staff would send several emails before the trip as I didn't have to go searching for previous emails. . Everyone enjoyed their stay!
The house is beautiful. We would love to visit Savannah again and stay at your property.

I sincerely enjoyed it. Everyone was very helpful, and the instructional video couldn't have made things clearer.
We had the best weekend ever. It rained the first night, so we all sat on the porch, drinking wine and enjoying the lightning. The curtains blew in the breeze, and the house easily accommodated our group. It was magical. Even better than the pictures

I could rave about the team members of Southern Belle Vacation Rentals for days. This was a professional, seamless rental process from the first click of the mouse. I have already recommended them to our family and friends if they want a professional company to assist them with their rental needs in Savannah!
We will definitely be renting the Simon House again. It was perfect for our group.
