traveler reviews for this savannah apartment rental

A Wonderful "Home away from Home"

Review submitted: April 8, 2014   Date of arrival: January 4, 2014

We recently returned home after spending winter in Savannah in the wonderful "Heyward House". We cannot say enough about how comfortable we were and how much we were made to feel "at home" by Michael. Since we were there for most of three months, the odd problem did arise, but Mike was on top of things immediately and couldn't have been more helpful (must be those Canadian genes). The apartment is beautifully decorated and well supplied with comfortable, quality furnishings from the cozy beds to the well-equipped kitchen. The high ceilings and big windows give a real feeling of spaciousness and the flat feels bright, even on gloomy days.

It was also nice to have a combination of "open concept" space and rooms down the hallway with doors that closed - good for people who might want to do different things at the same time - and also good that you can watch TV or read a book without having to listen to the dishwasher or washing machine.

People who aren't comfortable in an urban setting may think the area is a bit rough compared to the streets in Savannah where the rich people live :-) but most properties are well maintained and the neighbourhood is up and coming with lots of restoration going on. There are several SCAD buildings a little further south and a few SCAD residences in the area. You're a short walk from both a grocery and liquor store as well as being down the street from The Bean and Brighter Day. There are lots of great restaurants close by - Mike gave us several recommendations to places that have become favourites.

The location is ideal for getting anywhere you want to go - especially if you like walking, which we do. You're a leisurely 30 minute stroll down to City Hall and River Street, and can cover anything east or west of Forsyth Park in the same amount of time - Savannah can be walked in either direction in about thirty minutes, sort of like Paris. Of course, there lots of cabs, pedi-cabs and buses, if you don't want to walk. The off-street parking space is really convenient and there is usually plenty of on-street parking as well. You just have to remember to move your car for the street sweepers on the weekend.

Anyway, if you're looking for a wonderful place to stay while in beautiful Savannah, you cannot go wrong staying at Heyward House. Mike will take excellent care of you. We enjoyed it so much we're going back next year (and next and next...) and have already started counting the days till we're back.

Owners response: Thank you for the kind words. It is always easy when we have nice guests. We look forward to your return this winter.
Cheers, Michael
