Location, Location, Location!



This condo is part of the Alfred Haywood House. Centrally located in the heart of the historic district, the building is at the corner of Abercorn and Oglethorpe, directly across the street from Colonial Park Cemetery (the oldest cemetery in Savannah) and closest to Chippewa square.



Chippewa Square: General James Edward Oglethorpe (who had previously founded the colony of Georgia) founded Savannah in 1733. He designed his new capital as a series of neighborhoods centered around 24 squares. Chippewa Square is at the center of the downtown historic district. The square is also at the center of Savannah’s nightlife and entertainment, largely in part because of the Historic Savannah Theatre, it’s the oldest theatre in the United States and still produces shows nightly. The Square is also known for the famous park bench scenes from the critically acclaimed film Forrest Gump.



Flanked by St. John’s Cathedral and SCAD, the condo is just a short walk to Savannah’s most desirable attractions; Forsythe Park, Broughton Street shops, City Market, River Street entertainment and the Telfair Museum. The unit is located directly on the St. Patrick’s Day parade route and nestled comfortably in the middle of everything; Harris bakery, J. Christopher’s and Parker’s high-end deli/gift shop/gas station which is open 24 hours, are all just a short walk (1 block) away. There are fabulous places to eat, like “The Ole Pink House” or “Vic’s on the River” all within walking distance.



The spacious 1 bedroom condo has been recently renovated and professionally designed to pair Savannah's vast architectural history with a sleek modern coastal interior. The great room features elegant 14 ft. high ceilings, crown molding and original hardwood floors. It is beautifully appointed with a new nail head couch, a romantic fireplace and a large flat screen TV. Sit back and relax to a movie in the DVD player or curl up with a classic novel in the reading nook.



The bedroom boasts a beautiful antique 4 poster queen bed dressed in luxurious European bedding, down pillows and duvet. A full sized closet, full length mirror and plenty of drawer space provide ample room for all your things. The bathroom combines vintage style and modern utility with amenities such as the double marble vanity, full sized tub/shower, upgraded fixtures and premium linens. Move in and feel right at home!



Whether you love to cook or are just looking to save a little money on vacation by making a few meals at home…a full kitchen is an advantage that you do not get at a hotel. This fully equipped eat-in kitchen has brand new granite countertops, matching appliances, dishes, glassware/flatware, cookware and comfortable seating for up to 4 people.



Full sized, coin operated washer and dryer are available inside the building across from the unit for your convenience.



We are located on the second floor. There is a beautiful courtyard available for your use, with porch swing, garden seating and communal grill. Street parking is available directly in front of the building and is free on weekends and after 5pm on weekdays.



The unit directly below has the exact same floor plan and is also available for rent (availability pending) if you would like a little more space.



Here are a few of the reviews left by our guests:



“Amazing, Amazing…décor and location are awesome, we could not have been more impressed. This is a little slice of heaven in Savannah, we will most certainly be back!!” - Eric & Christena Brostrom (Atlanta, GA)



“Absolutely loved the location…a great place to explore the city from. Perfect size for 2 adults and equipped with everything we could have needed – the bed was super comfy and for a 2 week vacation, it was very important to have the extra’s that you just don’t get in a hotel, like a full kitchen and easy access to a washer/dryer. It was so nice to have found a “home away from home;” we have been very happy here and are so glad that we finally got to check Savannah off the bucket list!” - Tom & Corliss Olsen (Wasilla, AK)



“Girls weekend! The 4 of us go somewhere new every year for the long weekend…but we may have to come back to Savannah! Once we arrived, we didn’t use the car once…we walked everywhere – and having that little gourmet market around the corner was so convenient! Adore the way the place is decorated – modern and clean, but keeping with the southern historic charm Savannah is known for…loved all the little touches…like games, books and beach chairs/sun umbrella for Tybee beach. This condo was perfect – thank you!!” - Caroline Sarcopski (New York, NY)



Please note that a longer nightly minimum may be required during peak season dates, holidays or special events.

Property Reviews 
Just what we wanted!!!
misstoya10 from Nashville, TN,
Stayed for 0 days in September, 2012
The apartment was just what needed! It looked exactly like the pictures. Very convenient location!!! Only issue was the neighbors upstairs had very heavy feet. Other than we enjoyed our stay!
 
Overall Satisfacation

Great location, modern, if small apartment
elishag from Cambridge, MA,
Stayed for 0 days in May, 2012
We really enjoyed our stay with Savannah Getaways at the abercorn apt. My husband and I were there for a week on a babymoon. The apartment was in walking distance to the river and all major attractions, plenty of on st parking (and not far from the parking office where you'll need to buy a visitor permit) and the place was beautifully decorated. The kitchen and bathroom were generously sized while the bedroom and living room felt a bit small - but totally fine if you're planning on being out most of the day site seeing like we were. We loved the bed - all the bedding felt very luxurious. There were plenty of towels and good amount of hanging space and shelving/drawers. Because it wasn't too large it was easy to keep clean - something to keep in mind as there is no cleaning service during your stay. The kitchen was well stocked in terms of equipment (despite an old school coffee maker and the ice trays not being filled with water when we arrived), TV was easy to use and we were happy to find some beach chairs - we also left a beach umbrella for future guests to use if you venture out to Tybee Island (20 minute drive was worth it - there is also a shuttle from the visitors center). We didn't use the coin operated laundry room but it was there. The folks in the apt above were loud walkers but other than that the apt was quiet - though you don't get a lot of natural light in there. The courtyard pictured is only accessible by going around the side of the building and is rather narrow and dusty but pleasant - we often walked to one of the nearby squares or coffee shop for breakfast. We didn't find out until a week before our arrival that there were no physical keys - only an electric keypad on the front door and the apt door. The apartment is on the second story - there are a bunch of stairs to lug your luggage up so pack light. On the day we arrived we learned that the hot water was out in the complex due to a change of management and Savannah Getaways was very helpful - they ended up moving us to another property for 2 nights while the issue got worked out and then we moved back to the abercorn apt because we preferred that location. They refunded us $100 for the trouble and were very accommodating about a later check out time at the end of the week. We would definitely rent from them again.
 
Overall Satisfacation

Great location for historic Savannah.
Betty & Marty from Oaklyn, NJ,
Stayed for 0 days in February, 2012
The process for renting the apartment was easy and straightforward. The location was ideal for walking to everywhere in the old city. It had easy access to a market, bakery and other amenities. The apartment was small, but beautifully decorated and comfortable for two adults. The kitchen was fairly well appointed (no dish washer or tea kettle), roomy and bright. The apartment lacked a view with all the windows opening onto an alley which tended to make the whole apartment a little dark. Street parking was problematic. Savannah has a lot of awkward restrictions and street cleaning schedules. We were there for two weeks and overall had a great stay and enjoyed our time there very much. You can't beat the location for getting around. The inconvenieces were relatively minor. We hope to return in the future. It's a great city.

Charming 1 bedroom per friendly rental close to everything!
Savannah Fan from Augusta, GA,
Stayed for 0 days in December, 2011
We booked this condo for a last minute getaway. The realtor at Savannah getaways was great to work with and found this pet friendly home for us. It was so cute and professionally decorated. Weekend parking was easy with the metered parking (Free on the weekends) right outside of the building. Great location, close walking distance to the river entertainment area, Paula Deens restaurant, parks and city market area. Reasonably priced. Would definately stay here again!

Sweet Southern Charm
AvidLSUfan from Baton Rouge,
Stayed for 0 days in November, 2011
Stayed here for the Savannah RNR Marathon. Wonderful location, only .5 miles from the start & finish lines...can't get any closer than that. Enjoyed the ambiance of historic district and being able to walk to everything. Doggie friendly, so my pup, husband, & I did lots of walking. On the Saturday night after the marathon, we enjoyed dinner cooked in the kitchen while watching the most important football game, LSU beat alabama...wooohooo...Geaux Tigers!!! Overall, wonderful place to stay...would stay again and again!!!

Abercorn Colonial Manor meets all expectations
Okies from Norman,
Stayed for 0 days in November, 2011
Loved the location in the middle of the historic district. Walking distance to several eateries, but has a very updated and clean kitchen stocked with everything you need to cook a meal. Beautiful and appealing color scheme throughout. If we make it back to this lovely city we would stay here again. Found nothing wrong with the house. Especially liked the safe feeling in the neighborhood, even when walking after dark. Only drawback would be the hit and miss on the metered street parking.
