Located on a quiet dead-end residential block with no through traffic. Just a few blocks walking distance to attractions in Historic Downtown. The large back deck is furnished for your leisurely comfort, and a rocking chair awaits you on the front porch.
This Duplex in historic downtown Savannah was built in 1910 and renovated in 2006. It's homey & cozy, with simple comforts for those of us who don't need brass door knobs and chandeliers to be happy.
Both apartments have been converted to furnished BnB spaces. There are lock boxes outside the front doors for your convenience in checking in and out.
This apartment has a queen bed in the main bedroom. And trundle-twin beds in the small bedroom. I've recently pulled the trundle twin beds apart for easier access to both beds. This necessitated that the hall door come off. But the room is at the end of a side hall which provides visual privacy, just not so much sound or energetic privacy.
The living/dining and kitchen areas are combined in one large room. The kitchen is fully equipped with stove, refrigerator, microwave, cooking and eating ware. The bathroom has a shower within the claw-foot tub. PLEASE be careful upon entering and exiting the tub. If you are not very agile, this may not be the right fit for you. Place your hands on both sides of the tub to evenly distribute your weight as you get in and out.
Bed linens & towels are provided.
We're strong believers in conservation of resources, recycling, & composting. So towards that end, the AC thermostat is set to 78 degrees, which is very comfortable in Savannah's hot summers. Any cooler than that and you go into shock when you step outside! And 66 degrees in the winter. If you want it different than that, please change it to a more conservative setting when you leave for the day and when you check out.
Please remember to separate your trash from the recyclable material.
In the hot summer months expect mosquitoes, especially in lush and shady environments, like my back yard. Bring spray or whatever bug repellent you like to use if you want to spend time out on the deck.
There is a train track nearby, but train runs only during the day (sometimes as early as 5:30a.m., but not predictably.) For a reasonably active person, it's an easy walking distance to all downtown sites of interest and businesses 1.5 Mile to river street taking the scenic route up Bull St., it's1/2 mile to Bull street. Also has handy access to public transportation Including a free D.O.T. shuttle & ferry boat system ((website hidden))
The street sweeper comes on Friday and Saturday nights on our street.. Saturday night is our side so park on the other side (it gets swept Friday night), or down the little dirt drive also across the road to the left if you're driving into the block, and to the left of the house if you're looking out from the porch. It's a $25 ticket.
