"Amazing Place!
We had such a wonderful time. The carriage house was close to everything... it was absolutely beautiful! We would defy stay again... think you guys so much for the opportunity to stay in your VRBO!"
Jul 19, 2021 - Christina M., Flat Top, WV

"Annual Girls’ Getaway
Wonderful location!! Within walking distance to just about everything. Forsyth Park was about 15-20 mins, but everything else was much closer!

The house was very clean and accommodating. We had no issues with noise or lack of sleep. The only recommendations our group has is to have two towels per guest, add a full-length mirror, and change the shower curtain holder in the white, tiled bathroom to be more mobile. The hooks kept getting caught making fully closing the curtain challenging. None of these are reasons we wouldn’t stay again as we would definitely book for future travel to Savannah. "

"Stay in Savannah
Very nice, clean, and a garage to park in! Near all the action..."
May 29, 2021 - Robert L., Sugar Hill, GA

"Great location in a quiet part of town
The Washington Carriage House was in a great location, quiet part of town and a few blocks away from the river. The house was big enough for two couples with individual bathrooms. The only two concerns were the curtains in both bedrooms did not cover the windows completely and when the sun came up very early in the morning there was no way you could sleep in due to the light. The other concern was the microwave; after removing food and shutting the door, it would continue to run even though clearing the button didn't help. For safety concerns, we would unplug it after each use, and plug it back in when needed. I left a note concerning this with the key and garage door opener as instructed. Other than that, it was a great. "

"Our stay in Savannah
We had not been to Savannah in 25 years and our friends had never been there. Use the hop on hop off trolley. Great way to get around. Ate at the Pirate House just a block away from rental. Good fried chicken. Ate at Pucci also just 2 blocks away. Excellent food! Chicken Marsala was fantastic. City Market great as well as river walk. Great location to walk to everything and having garage space is a big plus. Cozy in the carriage house, clean, compact. Wish had more comfortable seating in living area as at night when want to unwind was not enough comfortable seating for 4 adults. Having the two master suites is good. Just a little tight as they have used the space available to best advantage. Very clean! No issues with check in or check out. Adding a Keurig to kitchen would be great."

"Great location
Wonderful location that was close to the river front and restaurants without the noise and congestion of the touristy area. Well maintained facility with elegant décor. Nice having a secure garage to leave our vehicle while walking exploring the city. "
Mar 28, 2021 - Seth K., RALEIGH, NC

"Parking Included!
Convenient location, cozy interior and parking in the garage below the carriage house was great!"
Mar 23, 2021 - , Raleigh, NC

"Savannah Get Away
First, good directions to teach the carriage house. I thought we would have access from the unit to the outdoor terrace but I did not realize we were o dr the garage- my mistake. The apartment was super clean!!! The kitchen well equipped and the linens and towels felt sanitized. I brought my own, but I would have used them. The garage was a super added plus and even that floor was very clean. Directions to enter where clear and all worked well. The bed was comfy and the room was very quiet. Never saw or heard anyone else in the main house. Alley was wet from rain but I really appreciated the good lighting outside the front door. We were very satisfied with the whole experience/"

"Holiday Getaway
Awesome! Garage was a huge plus!!!"
Jan 04, 2021 - , WHITEWATER, WI

"Wonderful Stay
Beautiful cottage nestled in the colonial district close to everything in downtown Savannah. Park your car and forget about it.
Wonderful condition with comfortable beds. Easy access to all the sites and restaurants.

Only issues were with a couple of lights flickering near the couch and in one bathroom."
Nov 10, 2020 - Larry N., fort lauderdale, FL

"Loved Savannah
Our rental was perfect! Will definitely stay here again when visiting Savannah!
The Washington carriage house had everything that we needed and was within walking distance of the majority of everything that we visited in Savannah"
Oct 20, 2020 - Johnathan S., Bartow, FL

"Wonderful place to stay in Savannah.
Spotless and beautiful. Great layout for two couples with bath in each room. Internet service was a little iffy."
Oct 04, 2020 - Kerry R., Pagosa Springs, CO

"Great Getaway!
Great location with easy walking distance to all the sites! Perfect accommodations for 2-4 people. Garage parking spot resulted in no hassle parking. Definitely recommend!"

"Carriage House- wonderful getaway
Weekend getaway was perfect. The courtyard was lovely. Place was clean and nice. Close to everything - within walking distance."
Mar 11, 2020 - , West Caldwell, NJ

"Spring get away
The cottage was very cozy and comfortable and was exactly as described. The kitchen was well stocked with dishes. Each bedroom has it’s own bathroom. You have a garage, washer and dryer. I would recommend this property to a friend."
Mar 08, 2020 - Joanie R., Grand Rapids, MI

"Valentine's Getaway
Overall it was nice and close to everything. It was smaller than anticipated but well equipped and clean. The garage was a nice plus. It does need some updating. "
Feb 18, 2020 - , Suwanee, GA

"Wonderful Weekend!
The home was located conveniently to everything in town. Once we parked the car we never even started it up until it was time to leave! The whole city is within walking distance, close to the river and many great restaurants. The beds were very comfortable after long days sightseeing!"
Dec 03, 2019 - Christine D., Trenton, SC

"Washington Carriage House
Great little place. Garage parking was a plus. Exactly as described."
Nov 06, 2019 - Geoff S., Evans, GA

"Great Stay
Quiet and comfortable in a great location. Parking was a great plus although we never had to move the car. Management was very helpful and responsive "

"Luxury Living Washington Carriage House
Location, parking garage & property was perfect. All the amenities that you would need for a very comfortable stay. Kitchen was awesome. Bedrooms & bathrooms were very clean, very well decorated, and well maintained. Location was quiet yet very walkable to a lot of restaurants, shopping & attractions. Would highly recommend. "
Aug 06, 2019 - Ingrid B., Greenwood, SC

"Nice stay
Nice carriage home. Wifi was painfully slow, but the location and price of the home outweigh that"
Jul 11, 2019 - , Goose Creek, SC

"Walkable Savannah
This unit has a perfect location for walking the squares of Savannah. It is compact but provided everything we needed for a fun couples stay. Clean, comfortable and convenient!!! One note of caution: this unit is above the garage that you share with another rental so the door noise can be a problem depending on their schedule. "

"Savannah Carriage House
Four of us stayed for 4 nights. The home was plenty big enough for us. Impeccable clean. I picked it for the closeness to the Savannah River and all the restaurants and shops on the Riverwalk and Historic area. If you go to Savannah be sure to stop at Churchill's bar and restaurant. Very attentive staff."
May 21, 2019 - John M., Supply, NC

"loved the place!
A wonderful experience and time!"
May 02, 2019 - , Manassas, VA

"Loving downtown Savannah!
Stayed 4 nights in this great little carriage house. The air freshener was pretty strong when we first arrived but after we opened the windows for a while it was fine. Great location right across the street from the Pirate House and short walk from River St. Clean linens / towels, just like a hotel. Dishes and silverware ready, even though we always ate out. Would definitely recommend the place."
Apr 26, 2019 - Dan R., North Las Vegas, NV

"Perfect for our needs
I recommend it. This property was nicely decorated, adequately furnished, very clean and well maintained. It was compact and functional.
Because of the size and stairs, I would not recommend it for individuals with small children.
The use of a garage was beneficial. It was a tight squeeze getting in and out of there. I had to utilize the parking lot across from the alley to gain access. No problems in doing so.
We enjoyed walking to the attractions on River Street.
Great customer service both times that I contacted them."
Mar 22, 2019 - John M., Dalton, GA

"Perfect location, Clean & Adorable
It was easy to book. Excellent communication with owner(s). Such a clean house and absolutely adorable. You can not go wrong with any of their homes."
Feb 27, 2019 - Stenson G., Port St.Lucie, FL

"Awesome Location
The location of this rental could not be any better, if you are physically able to walk you will love it. Got the car out to go to Tybee Island. The rental is great for a girls trip, the garage was a plus, not hsving to worry about a parking place. Will defintely keep this place in mind the next time I visit Savannah."
Feb 06, 2019 - Patty F., Franklin, KY

"Halloween Weekend Getaway
Great location for what we like to do in Savannah. Private parking was a plus! Everything was just as described in the listing. When you are in town visiting, you have to eat at The Crab Shack out on the way to Tybee Island!!! I would definitely recommend this property to anyone else, especially 2 couples looking to have a weekend getaway. "
Nov 04, 2018 - Jason B., Princeton, West Virginia

"Great Little Place
We arrived and it was all fantastic. Clean, spacious, great location and perfect for us. This rental is so close to everything we didn't even get in the car until we went to Tybee Island. I would stay here again. "
Oct 25, 2018 - Gina L., Decatur, AL

"River District Gem!
Our 5th stay with Luxury Living in Savannah!
Clean and neat with an upscale vibe. Close to the River District and it’s great bars and restaurants - short walk to shopping and City Market.
Wonderful days and evenings in the lovely Savannah with a return to our cozy home away from home and the enclosed garage adds a level of ease and security to the comfort. "
Oct 24, 2018 - Leigh Anne T., Cape Coral, FL

"Private. Clean. Parking Provided. Self Check In.
Have stayed in Savannah many, many times! Usually stay in a hotel. First time staying in a vacation rental property.
The Washington Carriage House was as depicted:-) beautifully appointed. Love the fact that there’s a lock box and no greeting by a host!! Would definitely stay here again."
Aug 29, 2018 - , Melbourne, FL

"Great location for Historic Savannah!
We had a great time at the Carriage House. Convenient to several restaurants within walking distance (The Funky Brunch for breakfast/lunch, The Old Pink House for fine dining & dinner/bar). Comfortable lodgings, nice atmosphere, perfect for a weekend getaway. Instructions were easy enough to follow; just pay attention to House numbers. Would stay here again! "
Jul 16, 2018 - , Chiefland, FL

"Perfect place for us
We were celebrating my mother’s birthday and this home was perfect for us. The home was clean and nicely decorated. The garage parking was a huge convenience. The kitchen had everything we needed. I love staying in the Washington Square area and this home was within sight of it. Thank you!!!"

"Trip to Savannah
We had a very nice week in Savannah."

"Wonderful accomodations in a great location
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The unit was very clean and well stocked. The beds were comfortable and the location was perfect. I highly recommend staying at the Washington Carriage House."
May 23, 2018 - Denise H., Ranch Cucamonga, CA

"Spring Break Savannah
Easy check in/out instructions. Called managment company once because I accidentally deleted information and they called back within minutes and problem solved. Carriage home was clean, comfortable and had just enough amenities for our stay. Location is just east of the center of town (aka Forsythe Park),so we didn't hear the noise, horns, etc. It was so nice to have a garage to park car in...never used it while we were there as Savannah is a town you can walk everywhere to. Would stay here again."
Apr 07, 2018 - Penelope S., Sandwich, IL

The cottage was very nice, cozy home away from home."
Mar 13, 2018 - Kimberly D., Kingsland, GA

"Excellent choice in the historic district
The apartment was very clean, comfortable, and nicely furnished. Its location within the historic district is perfect, as most things of interest are within walking distance. Also, having a garage on the premises is definitely a plus, since parking in that part of town can be problematic. We would definitely stay there again."
Jan 13, 2018 - Ana T., Norfolk, VA

"Christmas in Savannah
We had a wonderful stay. The carriage house pictures and description were accurate. The location and private parking were ideal; the apartment was beautifully decorated and very clean; the internet connection/WiFi worked great our entire visit; the kitchen was well-appointed and we appreciated having access to the laundry; and the bed and bath linens were new yet comfortable. We would definitely stay there again."
Dec 28, 2017 - Dawn P., Yorktown, GA

"Perfect Cottage
Everything from the directions and instructions on leaving was perfect. Cottage was very clean. Having garage parking was convenient and the courtyard was so peaceful. Cottage is perfect for up to 2 couples. I would highly recommend this cottage for maximum of 2 couples. "
