Charming, Comfortable Cottage

My husband, son & daughter in law, & I stayed at the cottage over the 4th of July. The cottage had everything we needed. It was a comfortable walking distance to the River Street area. We enjoyed the quiet of Greene Square with the occasional arrival of the horse & carriage tours going by. It is also on the tour bus route. The front porch was the perfect place to relax. The on street parking is convenient, but needs attention to parking & street cleaning. We enjoyed our stay at the Gingerbread Cottage & would stay there again when we visit Savannah! - Denise W., Knoxville, TN

Great Location!

We had a very nice stay at the Gingerbread Cottage in Savannah. The location is great, this is a very walk-able city and we were so close to it all. Also, there is close stops on the tour buses (Hop on Hop off) if interested.

The house was clean and comfortable. The master bed was a little soft, which I liked but my husband did not. The shower in the bathroom is very small and challenging. It is a small circle curtain in an old school bathtub. Looks nice but very small!

The property management company was very fast to respond to any questions or issues. Very friendly and helpful to deal with. - Amy K., MOUNTAINSIDE, NJ

We had a wonderful time in Savannah. The house was great and had comfy beds. The location was quiet and accessible. Definitely get the parking pass at the visitors center because you will be fined because it is on street parking. - Anonymous, Walpole, MA

Great Little Cottage

Had a great time in the house, it was right in front of one of the beautiful squares. House was walking distance to downtown so we parked right in front of the house that wasn't metered. We will stay again in the future. - Jason W., Thomasville, GA

Charming Little House on a Lovely Square

The Gingerbread Cottage was a picturesque setting for our family of 4 to celebrate our 10th anniversary in Savannah.
The location was great - centrally located for walking to all that the beautiful Historic District has to offer.
The house was lovely - ample in size; comfortable; charming. The setting right on Greene Square was great fun for our children (6 1/2 year old twins). The garden in the back was enjoyable for meals outdoors. The small front porch was my favorite morning coffee spot.
The team at Savannah Dream Vacations were very helpful and prompt in their responses. We would happily stay again in the Gingerbread Cottage. - Jenny B., Albuquerque, NM

St. Patrick's Day at Gingerbread Cottage

For this past St. Patrick's Day, a couple friends and I stayed here for the holiday weekend. It was absolutely perfect. The Cottage was very clean, had charming decor, and the back patio area was fabulous. The location could not have been better, only two blocks from our spot watching the parade. As soon as we got hoe, I was already asking if it was available for next year! - Rachel S., Charlotte, NC

Wonderful house and great location!

We visited Savannah with our two young boys. The home was lovely and in a wonderful location. The house was spacious, clean and well stocked. We dined in and the kitchen had everything we needed. We particularly enjoyed the location on the square so the kids could ride their bikes and play ball in such close proximity to the house. Parking was no problem and being on the edge of the historic district made it easy to pop out to the store, etc. We did have a problem with the door code not working when we arrived but the management company immediately answered our call and fixed the problem.
The only negative was that the bath/shower did not drain well. - Anonymous, Roanoke, VA

This was great!

We stayed here with my brother-in-law and his wife. It was great to have all the shared spaces and 2 bathrooms. if it had been warmer the outside spaces were great as well. we walked everywhere and thought this was a great location. would stay here again. we stayed over the weekend and parking on saturdays is not free like the app said, but there was plenty of parking spots available and it was still cheaper to pay the meter than buy the pass, at least for us. communication with the company was easy and quick. would definitely recommend. - Anonymous, Seven Hills, OH

Charming cottage

We stayed for 6 nights at Gingerbread Cottage. Location was fantastic! We walked to restaurants & sights, yet enjoyed the house's quieter neighborhood. Perfect combination. The house is full of character & there are big windows in every room & lots of natural light. The small courtyard was nice for breakfasts & late afternoon drinks. We had wonderful weather for our visit & fully enjoyed the spring sunshine. We felt very much at home for the week & would rent the house again. Loved Savannah!! - Jill L., Pittsfield, MA

Awesome long weekend

We were so pleased with this home. The location was fantastic. We could leave the car by the house and walk this beautiful city. The house was super clean and so nicely decorated. If I had to complain I would say that the powder room is really tight and getting the temperature in the house to the right degree was difficult but management talks about that in the instructions. We weren't in the home a bunch since we were enjoying our vacation so much! - Laura R., Summerfield, NC

Absolutely would stay here again.

From the first phone call to checkout, we were so glad we chose Savannah Dream Rentals. They helped me find this property which turned out perfect.

As far as the unit itself, it's so fun. It's bigger than we anticipated in the common areas, and we loved the front porch. It rained one night and we just sat outside drinking bourbon and laughing with our friends. The master bedroom is large and the bed very comfortable. My wife thought it was a bit firm, but that's personal preference. The only downside of this location is the bathrooms. They are both small, and the shower is an old fashioned one. Cool for looking at, tricky for using. But the positives so far outweigh the negatives, I will definitely use them (and the home) on our next trip.

The Greene Square is just awesome.

Location is awesome.

Savannah is awesome.

Everything is awesome. - Joel H., Lakeland, FL

Perfect Location

I was looking for the perfect house and found it here. I wanted a house with a porch on a square to watch the trolleys go by. This was it. Even better it was right along the path of the horse and carriages on their way home. I loved it! The house was spacious, bright and airy. Absolutely loved it! My only suggestion would be that the owner trim the growth on the back patio and clean the outdoor furniture. I would highly recommend this location. Close to everything. We rented a car but didn't need it here. - Kelli K., Magnolia, TX

Great location for Savannah adventure

Had a great time. House is spacious with comfortable furnishings. We were able to site see a lot of downtown Savannah and the nearby residential areas on foot. The house is in a historic area, had a lot of horse drawn carriage, and tour bus traffic. Parking was easy to find, and location was good for site seeing and Tybee Island trips. - Carl S., Wilmington, DE

Vacation at the Gingerbread Cottage

Had a great time at the Gingerbread Cottage. The Management was great to work with. The home is clean and well kept.

Gingerbread Stay

This cottage was absolutely lovely well situated for our stay in Savannah. I traveled with my 19 month old son and his grandparents. The convenience of having Green Square right outside the door was perfect. The horse carriages came through every morning, and he had a wonderful time "neigh-ing" at them each time they passed. The kitchen was a good size, and the outdoor spaces were quaint and useful. The upstairs bathroom worked well for the 3 adults, and toddler bath time, and we never ran out of hot water! The living spaces are HUGE! As is the master bedroom. I would counsel future renters that the bedrooms open into each other, which was great for our purposes, but maybe not for everyone. While a bit further from some of the main touristy areas of Savannah, we actually liked that, as we could walk anywhere and were outside of some of the louder revelry. Savannah Dream Vacations was very attentive and helpful! Overall we could not have asked for a better stay in Savannah. - Anonymous, Clemson, SC
