The Honey Bee Cottage is in an excellent location-a short walk to Troup Square, the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist and historic Jones Street, voted one of the prettiest streets in the United States! A short drive or walk puts you on either Broughton Street or River Street where shopping and dining abound-it truly is the ideal location from which to explore Savannah.

Of historical note: Known as "Beach cottages", these quaint homes are named for their location near 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. It was named for Alfred S. Beach, editor of the Scientific American from New York who donated generously to enable the institute’s success. The Beach Institute closed in 1919 and now houses African-American Cultural Museum and remains a prominent tourist landmark of downtown Savannah. Look closely and you will spot the original brick flue in the front of the institute which channeled over 100 years of coal smoke from the little cottage's claw-foot stove out over the depot. Today, a reproduction electric stove recreates the appearance of the original.

Beach cottages were built in the mid 19th century to house the working class railroad laborers and craftsman that created the revered structures of historic Savannah and who also ushered in the greater population growth of the 20th Century. Across the street from this cottage we now have East Broad Elementary School, which was once a bustling railroad depot and main artery of the city's vibrant commerce.

I had a great time at this location. It was a quaint and very spacious house that was located away from any commotion of the city but close enough to walk everywhere I needed to go. I would recommend this as a place to stay for anyone wanting to experience Savannah!

I love the cottage, was perfect for our stay. Bathroom sink and kitchen stove were cracked, but did not impact our stay. House was spotless, close to everything, and roomier than anticipated. Will definitely stay here again.

The management people I was in contact with were great.But and this is a Hugh but. The property was lacking any warmth or charm and needed repair upgrades. It was stark. No thought about guest needs. No place to set suitcases, king size bed, but only one nightstand and lamp. Plenny of room for the bed to be moved over for a nightstand and lamp with charging plugs. Bathroom needs total makeover including floor. Property looks like a flip that had an okay kitchen and a fresh paint job and thats all.

Our original location was very well appointed, comfortable and clean. The plumbing had a horrible issue - not anyone's fault --on our second night there and began backing up in the middle of the night. The host was kind enough to call first thing the next morning and offer a second location for remainder of the stay. We took the second location that was a lower rate than where we originally booked. It too was nicely appointed and seemed very clean - even sent a cleaning crew and added wash clothes and towels at our request. It didn't feel as new and the layout was very awkward, but we were fine to try it due to how quickly accomodating the host had been.That first night, we discovered we had roaches the size of my big toe in the property and moved to a hotel at this point. The host Kindly, promptly and fully refunded our stay even though we had one pleasant first night in the original booking. They resolved the plumbing in the first property and we'd be willing to try that location again on another stay, but be mindful these are older properties, be flexible and realize there may be issues like this. We loved our original property very much.

This property is fantastic. It's well appointed, and has tons of space. Very clean and nicely decorated too. There's a ton of free street parking available, and it's a short walk to town, which is amazing in Savannah. Thanks so much for letting us stay in your wonderful home. We'll be back!
