About this listing

Located on a quiet dead-end residential block with no through traffic. Just a few blocks walking distance to attractions in Historic Downtown. Two feathered friends roam the back yard, and the large back deck is furnished for your leisurely comfort.

The space

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 a full bed in the small bedroom.
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.

There is a labeled compost container in the kitchen, we use it in the garden. Please remember to separate your trash from the recyclable material. We have a couple of backyard chickens, they love fresh organic greens, grains & seeds! They come running to the call of: "Here chick chick chick chi-i-i-ickens." A friend is now gathering the eggs in exchange for their care.

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.

Breakfast food provided are breads such as bagels & English muffins kept in the freezer for freshness and, in the fridge you'll find half & half, butter, jam, and you'll find tea and coffee in the cupboard.

Sentient bean Coffee shop
Mate Factor Bakery (closest and new favorite!!)

Interaction with guests

I have been a host for Airbnb for over four years, and in this time frame I've booked more than 450 bookings and have earned more than 200 5- star reviews.
We love to greet our guests during their stay and find out more about them and any common affinities we may share. It's not a guarantee that we'll be around when they are, but if possible we like to meet all our guests at least once during their stay.

Other things to note

We have tourist brochures, maps and info in the apartment for your convenience. If you'd like to leave some that you've collected during your stay, we welcome you to add to the collection.

I charge a $25 non-refundable pet fee to defray the cost of extra cleaning time in regards to fur indoors and poo-patrol outdoors. If you're bringing a pet I'll add this charge as a "special offer" during the booking process. Dogs must be crated if left unattended in apartment. They also must be kept leashed out back if they could be a threat to the free-ranging chickens. Thank you for understanding!

Kelly's place is quaint and comfortable, with an interesting, eclectic mix of furniture and decorations, highlighted by some wonderful artwork done by her daughter. (Like truly amazing stuff!) The porches are great, and the backyard chickens did make an occasional appearance, although, most of the time, we didn't even know they were there. (No crowing at the crack of dawn!) It's in easy walking distance to the historic downtown area, and everything you might need--grocery, restaurants, and sightseeing--is conveniently nearby. I was happy to see instructions for composting, and there's a recycling container just outside. There are many personal touches that make the whole place feel very homey and welcoming. We loved it!

Kelly's place was the perfect spot for a quick trip to Savannah with easy access to downtown, yet outside all the touristy traffic. It is equipped with basic breakfast supplies, which were greatly appreciated after getting in very late the night before! The apartment is cozy and comfortable - the queen sized bed made for a great night's sleep. It was very easy to relax in Kelly's place between the beautiful art, comfortable decor and awesome front porch. There is a park around the corner which was a good place to walk the dogs, and our younger pup loved playing fetch in the yard. Definitely a convenient relaxing retreat where you can live like a local. We loved it.
