When in Savannah, do what the locals do for the best vacation or business trip experience.

When you stay at a Savannah vacation rental managed by locals such as Southern Belle, you stand a better chance of getting responsive service, including information about must-see places and must-try experiences. Spend your Savannah sojourn at Broughton Escape, a vacation property in the heart of the historic district.
Escape from it all at Broughton Escape
Broughton Escape is a spacious one-bedroom, one-bathroom unit, unique among Savannah GA vacation rentals because of its location in the downtown district. Meticulously renovated to capture the spirit of the original structure, this unit can accommodate up to four guests comfortably.
The retro vibe is strong at Broughton Escape. Distressed but polished wood floors complement the authentic brick walls set against an all-white background. The great room is bathed in natural light from large windows that also provide unobstructed views of busy Broughton Street below. The living room is furnished with a leather couch, coffee table and a flatscreen TV. The couch doubles as a pull-out bed, and the coffee table extends to make a dining table.
The gourmet kitchen occupies an entire corner of the great room. It is fully equipped with stainless steel appliances, including a sub-zero refrigerator, dishwasher, stovetop and oven and a microwave. This is a turnkey unit, so you can expect it to be fully equipped with the basics such as a coffee maker, toaster and tableware service.
The bedroom is a cozy affair with a comfortable queen bed with an upholstered headboard. The bed is made, using deluxe linens and bedding so that you can take an invigorating nap as soon as you arrive. It is tastefully decorated to create a minimalist and modern room. A modern track lighting system that matches the style used in the great room provides artificial illumination in the bedroom. This room comes with its own flatscreen TV and a large closet provides ample storage whether you’re staying a weekend or several weeks.
The bathroom has been completely upgraded with beautiful tile work in and outside the glass-enclosed shower. Smooth countertops over wood cabinets, a large vanity sink and a beveled mirror dominate one side of the bathroom. Like the kitchen, the bathroom is guest-ready with luxury towels and other supplies available for your use when you arrive.
Proving that Southern Belle Vacation Rentals has your comfort in mind, this unit comes equipped with a full-size washer and dryer so you can run a load while you prepare dinner in the gourmet kitchen. Note also that cable and Wi-Fi services are included in the lease package for Savannah Georgia vacation rentals. This place is so cozy that you may decide to hunker down to enjoy peaceful,loft-style living, but remember that Savannah is a magical and exciting world waiting to be explored.
Savannah Yields its Secrets to the Adventurous
Walking from your Savannah vacation rental is highly recommended. The city can be heady and overwhelming if this is your first visit, so take baby steps and enjoy nearby attractions, starting with the famous Savannah squares. Broughton Street is a main artery in the downtown area, so you will be within walking range of several squares, including Ellis, Johnson and Reynolds Squares to the north. South of Broughton, you will find Wright, Oglethorpe and Columbia Squares.
Savannah was originally laid out in a grid defined by the Oglethorpe Plan. The grid was anchored by 24 squares although only 22 remain in existence. Each square is named after a famous person, event or place in Savannah’s history, and a plaque or a monument would provide these details. Some of the squares have been turned into green spaces or shady, peaceful retreats amid an urban setting.
Savannah may be hot and humid especially in the summer, but you can seek respite at Forsyth Park with its Parisian-style fountain, a rose garden and many oak-shaded nooks from which you can enjoy people watching. This park can get busy especially when live performances and special events are on the calendar.
The Savannah College of Art and Design plays a prominent role in historic preservation efforts but also champions sustainable urban renewal projects. The Broughton Street area has benefited from these efforts with shops, restaurants and commercial establishments rising from abandoned buildings. The City Market is a retail center with specialty bakeries, candy shops and restaurants offering casual to formal dining experiences. Don’t pass up a chance to sample the iconic Leopold’s ice cream or to browse the unique merchandise at Paris Market.
SCAD itself occupies several of the rehabbed buildings, but the SCAD Museum of Art is worth a visit for student exhibits and permanent collections. The city offers many museum choices, including the Maritime Museum, Telfair Academy Art Museum, Georgia State Railroad Museum and the Savannah Children’s Museum. Guided tours are available for history museums, including the Juliette Gordon Low Birthplace, Owens-Thomas House, Harper Fowlkes House and the Green Meldrim House.
A visit to Savannah would not be complete without a ghost tour, which you can do by tram or by joining a guided tour of the Sorrel Weed House, rumored to be a haunted site. You can also wander through the Colonial Park Cemetery where many of Savannah’s prominent citizens have been laid to rest. There is a lot to take in around and nearby the downtown area. This is why it pays to consider Savannah Georgia vacation rentals that are conveniently located to the sites that interest you.
