Book this Vacation Rental

This is one gorgeous, professionally designed light-filled beauty of a guest suite. Free from distractions of the outside world, NO TV, and nature's beauty surrounding you, this cozy little space offers a perfect backdrop to relax, be creative, open up that good book you haven't had time to get to, or simply have a little romantic weekend with your partner! This suite is a studio with a queen bed, kitchenette and large full bath with a walk-in glass shower and plenty of sink space for two. We offer a Keurig coffer with pre-stocked pods, a Chambers Retro fridge and a toaster oven, perfect for reheating those amazing leftovers from last night! The pictures tell the story, but aside from the cozy interior, we do offer access to the dock overlooking the Herb River. **NOTE** there are stipulations to the access, see below for more details. We offer free covered parking right at your doorstep, so it's easy in and out and you can stay dry should we have one of our classic Savannah summer afternoon rain storms.

Aside from the entire guest house being yours, we do offer limited access to the beautiful dock views of the Herb River. From 7am to 6pm Monday through Friday, please feel free to use the deck seating area overlooking the water for your morning coffee or breakfast, some mid-day chill time with a book or a happy hour glass of wine! On the weekends, you are also welcome to have some coffee from 8am-10am or a little pre-game cocktail on from 4pm to 6pm, given the owner is not already occupying the dock.  Please note: the owner does live on property and may be using the dock and boating area at any time during your stay.

We live in the little-known Bona Bella area in Savannah. It's very unassuming when you start to get closet to Aimar Ave from Skidaway, but trust us, it is totally worth the drive past some of the convenience marts and lesser-frequented areas when you pull into to the drive that parallels the creek. It is a very quaint area back off the main road and is such a hidden gem that you will be jumping for joy once you arrive to our guest house :) Aside from the drive in, we are SO close to some of Savannah's best, local known restaurants in town. Just to name a few, The Wyld, Pearl's Saltwater Grille, Cohen's Retreat, Driftaway Cafe, and many more are only a few minutes drive and are super well-known the the Savannah community. Speaking of Savannah, we are only 5.5 miles to Forsyth Park and downtown Savannah.

Aside from only being minutes off the Truman Parkway and only a 10 minute drive to downtown, we are also only a 30 minute drive to Tybee Island.  We recommend taking an Uber/Lyft if going downtown especially when it gets late; we don't want anyone having one-too-many when the drive is quick and reasonably priced. Aside from using private drivers like Uber/Lyft, there is a public bus stop just at the corner of Aimar & LaRoche so it's pretty convenient as well. Additionally, we have a ton of places to see and amazing restaurants nearby. You could easily bike to the little neighborhood of Sandfly and Isle of Hope, where you’ll find some interesting eclectic shopping and several restaurants. Or walk two streets over to The Wyld marina and waterfront dining restaurant, for their famous Pain Killer cocktail and fresh fried shrimp or fish tacos. There is a grocery store (Food Lion) only 1.2 miles away and Target, Starbucks and much more just 3 miles away at the intersection of Victory Drive and Skidaway.  You’ll appreciate the solitude of the guest suite location while also being so conveniently located for getting around town!
