Welcome to the "Carriage House at the Hive". A throwback to a time lost, the "Carriage House at The Hive" exudes Southern Charm. Let us take you on an exquisite trip back in history with all the modern amenities. Located in the heart of the chic and budding Starland District, "the place to be for emerging artists and local businesses"; The Carriage House is perfect for romantic weekends, friend-cations, or long term business trips. We welcome Fur-babies with a small pet fee of $25 per pet.

The space
The "Carriage House at The Hive" exudes Southern Charm. Let us take you on an exquisite trip back in history with all the modern amenities to include a fully equipped kitchen, in-house laundry, and backyard with fire pit for closing out your memory-filled Savannah evening. Built on the grounds in 1924 as part of the larger main Victorian estate, the refurbished Carriage House is a southern oasis prepared to quench your thirst for relaxation and peace.
• The Carriage House boasts an open floor plan with high open rafters positioned above the sitting room/office space furnished with two chairs that fold out into single beds, a full-size sofa couch and wall mounted flat screen complete with Roku streaming.
• House sleeps four but no more than six.
• WIFI is included in your visit so just have your passwords ready to sign in to your favorite streaming services.
•The large full-size bathroom is outfitted with a state of the art steam shower with multiple heads and settings to provide the ultimate experience in relaxation and rejuvenation.
• The fully loaded stainless steel kitchen is equipped with hardwood counter-tops and everything you need to be a Top Chef! The kitchen shares space with the dining room table which has seating for four.
• To the rear of the kitchen is a full-size laundry room that also has hanger space for all of your evening attire.
• The spiral stairs leading up to the bedroom loft adds a touch of modern class to this southern classic.
• Once you enter the loft you are engulfed in the charm of the original unfinished wood floors, exposed brick, and a luxurious king-size bed.
• Prior to heading out for the evening or possibly after an invigorating evening out unwind at the fire pit in the shared courtyard with a nightcap sharing stories amongst friends.
• We welcome children of all ages; however, please be aware that our interior spiral stairs while very sturdy and safe, are very steep and not meant for young children. We would hate for you to book with us and be surprised by this so we make it a point to ensure you take a look at the pictures prior to booking with us.
• Traveling with little ones can make it difficult to pack all the essentials. We do keep a playpen on site that can be utilized; please just let us know and we'll set it up where you desire.
• Should you have forgotten your fur-babies bed or food bowels we do keep both on sight and wash them after every guest when used.
• 37th St is a grand boulevard with moss-draped oaks and sidewalks.
• The Carriage House is within walking distance or a scenic bike ride of neighborhood galleries, eclectic shops, cafes, restaurants, bars, library, pizza, tacos, bakery, and all Savannah has to offer.
• 1/2 mile to Forsyth Park.
• Less than 2 miles to River Street.
• 3/4 mile to I-16
• 17 miles to Tybee Island.
• 11 miles to the Savannah/Hilton Head International Airport.

Location

Savannah, Georgia, United States

The Starland District is a neighborhood in positive transition. With SCAD and small business thriving, there's a lot of rehabilitation efforts on historic homes commencing and new shops, cafes, and entertainment popping up all around us. Savannah has a love affair with First Friday events, and the Starland District is no different. They’ve created monthly mini-festivals which are coordinated by the local businesses, restaurants, artists and residents of the district. These events are the perfect opportunity for tourists to experience life like the locals and celebrate all that this area has to offer. We are located on the corner of two of the main arteries of Savannah, 37th and Bernard. Though not in the loud party portion of downtown Historic District, we do have a considerable amount of traffic that takes place around one half of the property. As always please consider that your visit takes place on a larger shared space so we ask that you be considerate of the family who lives in the main house while doing all you can to maximize your time with us.

During your stay
My wife and I manage this listing as well as the other vacation rental on the opposite end of the property. She's a teacher and I'm a Soldier, so we may not be able to answer phone calls right away during weekdays. Rest assured though we will respond to texts and emails in a timely and courteous fashion. We love our guest and make it our priority to ensure your stay is a memorable one that won't be your last but the first in many more to come. In addition a family does reside in the main house and you may find yourself having some limited interaction with them. Please remember to be respectful as this is their residence and they will do the same for you.
