Townhouses in the Savannah Historic District are typically three to four stories tall, and many have been split up over the years into two separate properties garden level units that occupy the ground floor or basement and the main property that includes everything above. We offer many garden level historic Savannah rentals, which are perfect for small parties between one and six guests.
At nightly rates starting at just $140 and weekly rates starting at just $800, there's no more affordable way to get the authentic Savannah experience. Comparable hotel rooms go for as much or more per night, place you miles away from the historic Savannah squares, and lack the charm and character that have made Savannah famous.
When you stay with us, you get to sleep in a home that has stood for more than a century in some cases more than 200 years! That's an experience you simply can't replicate at a hotel. The entire Savannah Historic district is within walking distance of your rental, and you can walk to any landmark in about 15 minutes or less. We include booklets and other literature in our historic Savannah rentals to get you started, but feel free to ask us for suggestions when you book your vacation. Savannah isn't a particularly large city, but it has 300 years of history, and nearly every building in the main historic district has a story. There are literally hundreds of landmarks, tours, museums, and other opportunities to experience!
Even though they're very old buildings, our Savannah vacation homes all feature the modern creature comforts we take for granted in new construction. There are the basics like central heating and air, but many of our rentals also include complimentary Wi-Fi access, large HDTVs, and even open-concept layouts. You get access to your own private parking, but you won't need to hop back in your vehicle unless you want to visit the beaches on Tybee Island, which is located a few miles away.
The building interiors have been updated, but they still retain some of their original characteristics. For example, most fireplaces that you see in Savannah have been maintained with the occasional fresh coat of paint, but they haven't been replaced outright. Molding, brick walls, and even antique windows all make you feel as if you've stepped back into the early 19th century.
Get a good night's rest you're going to need it tomorrow. Even if you do nothing but walk around, explore, and get a general feel for the city, it will take you a full day to see the entire Savannah Historic District. However, we recommend getting started with a trolley tour. You'll get to see all 22 of the historic Savannah squares and learn about some of the histories behind each one. Once you've seen the city, you can pick out particular city wards to explore. Visit landmarks such as the Green-Meldrim House, where General Sherman set up his headquarters after Savannah's peaceful surrender in late 1864. Dozens of landmark buildings are open to the public for both self-guided and professional tours, and the historians within can answer all of your questions.
Exploring a city might not be hard work, but it's still hungry work! Want to eat back at your rental? Our Savannah vacation homes are located just minutes away from grocery stores and pharmacies, so you can stock up on all of the supplies you need to cook your own meals in your fully equipped gourmet kitchen. Many of our historic Savannah rentals also include kitchenettes for larger parties, multiple bathrooms, and dedicated dining rooms. Of course, that bistro located just around the corner serves delicious food, and you can eat every meal at a different restaurant for a month and never see the same restaurant twice. Some of the most popular destinations include Circa 1875 Gastropub, which, true to its name, has been a Savannah staple since 1875, and Mrs. Wilkes' Dining Room, which serves some of the best Southern cuisines that you'll find anywhere in the entire South. The latter is so popular that President Obama made a surprise visit there for lunch during his first term. When the competition includes the likes of Olde Pink House and 45 Bistro, that's high praise indeed.
Need to cool off from the warm Georgia sun after a day walking around the historic Savannah squares? Your vacation home and its blissful AC are just a few minutes away, but we recommend spending at least a few hours on Tybee Island's beaches. The sand is soft, the water is warm, and the coastline is absolutely gorgeous.
Savannah also has an active nightlife. River Street and City Market both light up after dark with vendors, street performers, and other entertainment. You'll find good food, good company, and a good time. Our historic Savannah rentals are located closer to City Market than River Street, but if you're spending at least a few days in Savannah, we recommend visiting both locations on separate evenings.
Because there is simply so much to see and do, a little planning goes a long way towards making your Savannah trip one of the best vacations of your life. With dozens of Savannah vacation homes to choose from, give us a call if you can't decide which one is best for your party. We'll match you with the perfect home, and we guarantee that you will love your stay in Savannah.
