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.

We are so happy this home suited your needs, Kelli. We have passed along your suggestions to the owner. We look forward to your next trip!

Had a great time at the Gingerbread Cottage. The Management was great to work with. The home is clean and well kept. It has great amenities (especially the claw legged tub) which I started each day with. The home is in a good location and is within walking distance of desirable locations in downtown Savannah. Would like to return. Thanks for sharing your home.

You were a delight to host, Patricia! We appreciate your feedback and look forward to your next stay.

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.

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.

Wonderful house

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!!

Loved every second!!

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!

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.

Clean and quaint

Charming is the word to describe this cottage.Very clean 2 bd. 1.5 ba. The location was perfect. We walked everywhere to find places to eat. Short drive to scad. Management was more than accommodating! (Thank you!) You need to be able to climb stairs. (Not a problem for us)
