Savannah is exceedingly beautiful with oak-shaded streets, rows of antebellum mansions and well-maintained public squares with each one harboring a story of its own. It’s a city waiting to be discovered one layer at a time. As such, you would do well to consider using Savannah GA vacation rentals that are suitably located to the section of the city that you wish to explore. Southern Belle presents Romancing on Jones, a Savannah vacation rental that will put you in the periphery of the historic district so that you can explore at your pleasure and still enjoy the relative peace of being on the margins of a bustling shopping, dining and entertainment hub.
Love the Lifestyle at Romancing on Jones
Romancing on Jones is a Savannah vacation rental managed by Southern Belle. It’s ideal for a couple or a solo traveler who values privacy and peace without scrimping on the fun part. This apartment is one of various Savannah Georgia vacation rentals that are offered as turnkey units: fully furnished, stocked with the basics and packaged with services such as Wi-Fi, cable and reserved off-street parking.
This is a one-bedroom and one-bathroom unit with the total floor area just south of 1,000 square feet. It has a well-conceived floor plan with thoughtfully arranged furnishings for a welcoming ambiance.
The living area is designed with serene blues and grays. Hardwood floors are covered with an area rug that matches the blue-gray hues of the upholstery of the living room set, the walls, the ceiling and the rest of the furniture. A decorative fireplace serves as the focal point, and a corner bookcase counterbalances this feature. This area is equipped with a flat screen TV, a functional console table with decorative touches and a life-size mirror to magnify the light streaming through the casement windows.
A walk-through dining area is furnished with a glass-topped table with four upholstered chairs arranged around the table. The galley kitchen is remarkably equipped with the latest stainless steel appliances, including a full-size refrigerator, stovetop and oven, microwave and a dishwasher. Solid surface counters, ample cabinetry and a kitchen sink with a street view ensures that you will enjoy this space whether you plan to prepare meals from scratch or heat up your takeout from the various dining choices in the area.
The bedroom is spacious. A canopied queen bed with a leather headboard is the focal point, but you’ll find the fireplace and comfortable lounge seats inviting as well. A leather-upholstered bedroom bench is provided for your convenience. A glass-topped writing desk takes up one corner in front of a large window, and a large mirror on one wall gives the room more depth and amps up the luxurious ambiance. Art and decorative objects are part of every room in luxury Savannah GA vacation rentals such as the Romancing on Jones apartment.
The en suite bathroom is cozy with a shower/tub combo. A single-sink vanity and additional storage, part of which houses the washer and dryer, completes the amenities provided to make sure guests have everything needed for an enjoyable stay. Kitchenware, tableware and bed and bath supplies are part of the lease package, so you will walk into a vacation home that is completely ready for guests. You will also have access to an outdoor cafe table where you can while away the afternoon with a cold glass of sweet tea while watching the scenes on Jones Street.
Savoring Savannah’s Sights, Sounds and Flavors
Once you’re set up in one of Savannah Georgia vacation rentals, put on your walking shoes and get with the program. First order of the day should be exploring famous sites near your vacation home. Start by exploring the nearby squares. There are 22 existing squares of the 24 that were constructed in the 1800s as part of the Oglethorpe Plan to define and design the city layout.
Many of these squares have monuments or plaques, citing the person, place or event for which the mini-parks were named after. Pulaski Square was named after Count Casimir Pulaski who is a Revolutionary War hero. There is no monument, but massive live oaks and ivy ground cover make for a beautiful green space in an urban setting. Lafayette Square is part of the campus of the St. John the Baptist Cathedral. Whitefield, Monterey, Calhoun, and Troup Squares are worth exploring for the history lessons, enchanting green spaces and extra exercise.
Forsyth Park and the famous Forsyth Fountain take up several blocks between Gaston Street and Park Avenue. It is a community meeting place where special events are held throughout the year. It links the downtown area to the Victorian District where art, history and architecture buffs go to ogle the well-preserved details of historical structures.
The Savannah College of Art and Design is one of the leaders and boosters of the art and culture scene in Savannah. The college’s main campus is close to the downtown area, and its academic colleges occupy some of the restored buildings. The SCAD Museum, Coastal Georgia Center, the Georgia State Railroad Museum are in the same general area along with the Savannah Civic Center and the Jepson Center for the Arts.
Savannah welcomes even those who are mobility averse. Jump on the trolley tours to explore different parts of the city without scuffing your walking shoes. Note that themed tours may stop only at designated sites, so if you want to check out haunted houses, opt for the ghost hunting tours that may include Colonial Park Cemetery. Join guided tours offered at many of the historical homes for more information about the sites that are of interest to you.
