2BR/1BA Cottage 331
Savannah, Georgia, United States 31401
This historic cottage in downtown Savannah was built for Clifford A. King in 1871. It is on the eastern border of Savannah's Historic District, between Jones Street and Liberty. You can walk to restaurants, antique stores, bars, and museums from this cottage.
This 135-year-old cottage is clean as a whistle and cute as a button. It is freshly renovated with modern amenities. You have your own private plunge pool in Cottage 331’s private rear courtyard. Having a dip while the fountain bubbles away is the perfect way to relax after a day of exploring the city.
The house is full of small treats, convenient features, and oversized mirrors. The owners, Chance and Julie, are avid travelers themselves, and want to spoil their guests with the little things that help make a travel experience special and romantic. They even insist that you help yourself to a complimentary bottle of wine--a small gesture to make you feel welcome.
There are 2 bedrooms and each has a king bed. A newly renovated bathroom is convenient to both bedrooms, located off the living room. The kitchen has granite countertops, modern LG and Samsung appliances, and is fully equipped for cooking. There is also a full size brand new front loading washer & dryer for your convenience!
Parking is free & easy on-street at this location. No permit is required.
This is next to "Cottage 333" which is VRBO #748967. Each cottage has its own separate private courtyard and pool.
A word on history: While the actual beach at Tybee Island is 17 miles away, this cottage is in a neighborhood in the Historic District that has what locals call "Beach cottages." These adorable homes are so-called for their proximity to the "Beach Institute." The Beach Institute was a school built in 1867 by the Freedmen’s Bureau of the American Missionary Association for the education of newly freed slaves. The school was named for New Yorker Alfred S. Beach, editor of the Scientific American, who donated funds for the site. The institute closed in 1919 when other schools opened. In its place is now an African-American Cultural Museum and tourist landmark of downtown Savannah. Beach cottages were built in the mid 1800's to house the working class of railroad laborers and craftsman that created the beautiful structures of historic Savannah. This small cottage is a remnant of that proud heritage.

Great host and perfect long weekend
The cottage is perfect for a long weekend in the Historic District. Its location is within walking distance to Savannah sights with no more than a 30-minute walk to most everything. While the weather was too chilly for using the private pool, it would make for a lovely warm weather spot. Mary was a wonderful host -- gracious and quick to respond to all questions and needs. The beds are extremely comfortable, and the closet space is big in both bedrooms. The front bedroom can be a bit loud since it's right at a fairly busy street. The back bedroom seems to have much of the heating/air conditioning for the home, so be mindful if you're a warm or cool sleeper. The kitchen has everything you need with dinnerware, glasses, utensils, etc. -- and is beautifully appointed and spacious for an old Savannah home. The living room has a small table for two and seating for three people beyond the table, so it's quite small but just fine for two people or two couples. The keyless entry was convenient -- how great to not worry with a key! While we didn't have a car and didn't need one, parking was never full and wouldn't be an issue. The bottle of wine for your stay was a thoughtful touch. Thank you to Mary for a lovely visit to this beautiful city!
We had a wonderful time at this cottage! It was SO NICE to come back every day to the plunge pool with the fountain splashing away and just cool off and relax. The private pool and courtyard is what really makes this place special and unique. Everyone really enjoyed our time chatting in the water by the fountain and we got some really great travel pictures there. The inside was very clean and the beds are excellent. We slept really well. Parking was a non issue as there was always plenty of space right out front which is important to me because I am someone who gets nervous driving in a city I don’t know. Mary was the best and very nice to deal with. We can’t wait to come back!!
We were two couples that rented the house. Upon arrival we thought the place might be too small but since we spent most time exploring the city, the place was a good fit after all. Beds were very comfortable and the house was well equipped.
Thanks for this important commentary, it is very important for future guests to consider that while we welcome 2 couples and have outfitted the cottage for 4 adults the size of the "common" area living room is indeed relatively small. We are priced accordingly. We know that the perks of this cottage (private pool, King size beds, complimentary wine bottle, updated bathroom and kitchen as well as new laundry machines) add to the great value and for most guests this more than makes up for the small size. We definitely want everyone to be aware of the pros and cons so they can be totally happy with their choice.
My girlfriends (4 in all) spent a week in Savannah at this lovely little cottage built in 1871. Each year we choose a new place to travel to and explore. The king size beds were so comfortable and we had ample room for the time we actually spent at the home. The kitchen and bathroom have been updated and every convenience you would want is available. The property was clean. Mary was always available to answer questions, and we only had a few. It wasn't warm enough in the evenings to use "cold tub" in the backyard, but it would have been fun. The cottage suited our price range. There is a very nice Kroger grocery store about 5 blocks away. We grabbed a few grocery items there the first night. The Cathedral is only 3 blocks away. I walked to 8:00 Mass on Sunday morning. We rented a car and were aware of the signs posted and which nights you can/can't park. Side street parking also has signs. We only had one evening that was difficult for us to find parking space. We wanted to spend our money on attractions and Southern food. I would recommend the Broad street cottage.
My husband and I stayed here for New Year's Eve weekend and were delighted from the moment we arrived. The cottage has been lovingly renovated, retaining its old world charm while providing modern conveniences. The décor is warm and eclectic, with a charming theme resonating throughout. The property was clean and comfortable, and the owners have made the most of the space with smart features like a huge mirrored medicine cabinet for storage of toiletries and well-arranged furnishings. The kitchen is well-appointed with brand new appliances and accessories, including a washer/dryer. The owners have stocked the cozy living room with board games and some (excellent) movies on DVD, as well as a wine rack with a complimentary bottle of wine included in the rental price (a very nice touch). The king-size bed was extremely comfortable, with very little motion transfer, comfy bedding, and a variety of pillows to choose from. My husband and I are both tall (he's 6'7") and he was very happy with it. There is ample free street parking right in front of the cottage, but be sure to check the street cleaning schedule and move your car around the corner if necessary. The location is perfect, about a mile from downtown and the riverfront, easily walkable at the beginning of the day and a cheap Uber ride home at night. Our friends stayed next door, so we got to use the heated, lighted plunge pool, which was a fabulous way to spend the New Year! The plunge pool in this unit isn't heated, so I guess we'll have to come back again when the weather gets warmer! Absolutely recommend, especially for a family or couples who want to rent both sides.
Loved how convenient this house is located to downtown and other ghostly sites. Slept like a baby, beds are great, the pool (heated) was nice to dip into after a long days drive. I believe this was way better than any hotel I have ever been to. Would I do this again for a few days in Savannah next time? HECK YES
This pool is actually not heated as of 2016. It should be warm enough to swim in from May until October depending on the weather. The smaller pool next door (Cottage 333) is heated.
Second Times a charm
This was my second time staying here because I loved it that much the first time. Mary is a great host and has everything you need. Will definitely stay here again!
Everything was perfect!
We had a wonderful time in the house! It was sparkling clean. The location is amazing. The beds are very comfortable and there are plenty of clean towels! The plunge pool is bigger than it appears and so refreshing after a day of sightseeing. We will be back! Thank you Mary everything was perfect!
Clean and bright with plunge pool!
Mary’s duplex apartment is conveniently located near everything in the historic district. It has a well-stocked kitchen and even a dipping pool to soak in after a hot day of sightseeing. You will love staying in this clean, bright Airbnb run by a very responsive host.
