When recently planning a trip to Savannah, Georgia, we were looking for the perfect place to stay as a family of four. We were delighted once we found this Charming Savannah Airbnb. The location, spacious layout, modern updates and charming touches make this home the perfect Southern escape for anyone visiting Savannah. Read on for a breakdown of why we found this Airbnb the best place to stay near Savannah, Georgia.
Fantastic Central Location
The biggest reason we recommend this Airbnb as the place to stay near Savannah, Georgia is the location. The location of this Airbnb makes it so easy and convenient to visit all the top spots in the Savannah area. Driving, you are about 15 minutes from downtown, 10 minutes from the Wormsloe Historic Site, 15 minutes from Tybee Island, 10 minutes from Oatland Island Wildlife Center and 5 minutes from Bonaventure Cemetery. Further, the quiet neighborhood this Airbnb is located in is a relaxing contrast to the hubbub of downtown Savannah. The location of this Airbnb really could not be any better!
Spacious and Family Friendly
This Airbnb is so spacious. With three bedrooms, two bathrooms and a large open concept living room/kitchen area, you will not feel cramped at all. As a family of four, we had plenty of space to spread out and make ourselves at home. Further, this Airbnb is very family friendly. There is a pack n play available to use and the large living area was a great place for our toddler to play. The washer/dryer here also comes in clutch when traveling with two littles.
Modern updates and charming touches
This home was originally built in 1901 yet is nearly completely updated on the inside. These modern updates make the home so functional. Nonetheless, this home still has its original hardwood floors (how cool!) and other charming touches including the front porch, record player and retro blue fridge that make the Airbnb feel steeped in history. The charm yet function of this home makes it so comfortable and welcoming.
Kendall is a fantastic host. He was so great at communicating as well as answering any and all questions we had before and during our stay. He really helped us make the most of our time in Savannah through giving us local tips/insight (some that you will find in our What to do Savannah, Georgia guide). Kendall is available for any questions yet allows you your space.
Beyond being helpful, another example of the hospitality of your host is that there is a basket with new complementary toiletries for you to take/use in case you forgot something. This was perfect and so helpful when we realized we forgot to pack toothpaste late at night. Further, Kendall was able to accommodate us with an early check in and late check out that gave us more time to explore the area. He even let us know when the Airbnb was ready sooner than expected so we were able to head to the Airbnb directly from the airport. He really went above and beyond!
Near Wilmington River
This Airbnb is less than a half a mile from the Wilmington River. The riverfront here is a really peaceful and scenic spot to go for a morning run/walk. To get to the riverfront (where there is a sidewalk to run/walk on) from the Airbnb, head southeast from the property by first turning right then taking the first left and then keeping straight until you hit River Drive/ the riverfront.
Other Properties Near by/ On-site
Further, if this Charming Savannah Airbnb is booked or a bit bigger than what you need, check one of the other listings right on site/next door. There is a studio cottage, Enchanting Cottage Airbnb, directly behind this home as well as a suite on the upper level of the house, Farmchic Suite Airbnb, on the southwest side of this property. We had the opportunity to tour each of the other Airbnbs. Both are of the same high quality as the one we stayed in. They have modern updates yet are charming, comfortable and well equipped with everything you need.
The studio would be perfect if it was just the two of us visiting. The upper suite could have been a nice alternative to staying in the home for our family. Another great idea for optimizing these spaces, if traveling with a group, is for different parties of the group to stay in each one of the Airbnbs. This way each party has their own space yet are all right next door/on the same property as each other.
We hope this guide helps you plan where to stay near Savannah, Georgia. We can’t wait to visit again. Visit Kendall’s Airbnb listings to check availability and book your stay. Let us know if you have any questions!
