Cohen House Garden Apartment

Guest Reviews

Description

This charming, one-bedroom, one bath ground level apartment is tucked away on Historic Jones Street. You’ll wake up each morning to walk the cobblestones of what Southern Living Magazine dubbed America’s prettiest street.

You’ll find plenty of comfortable seating in the den, including a small dining table and chairs. Enjoy a little “me time” curled up on the couch with a one of the provided books. The adjoining living room has more seating and a large flat screen TV. A large island countertop that doubles as a breakfast bar, opens and connects the living room into the galley style kitchen. When it’s time to get some shut-eye, get cozy in the comfortable Queen sized bed. The bedroom has plenty of storage space for longer stays, so unpack and relax on your private, enclosed porch. A second living room includes a Queen sleeper sofa, and can be closed to allow for 2 private sleeping rooms each separate from the Living Room.

Start your day of exploration at Clary’s Cafe, the setting for several breakfast scenes in Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil. You’ll be a short walk from the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist, which underwent a major restoration to preserve their beautiful stained glass windows and architectural integrity. A few blocks away at the corner of Bull Street and Liberty, you’ll find local shops featuring everything from handmade handbags and leather goods at Satchel, to Celtic crosses at Saints & Shamrocks.

Why Lucky Savannah Loves this Property:
- This apartment can be rented with the main house to sleep up to 12 Lucky guests.

My husband and I stayed at the Cohen House apartment for 4 nights and had a wonderful time! The apartment is in an excellent location on a nice quiet and absolutely beautiful street. Far enough away from the action but close enough to walk to almost everything. We were even able to enjoy a cocktail with the nice lady across the street who was more than happy to share her front porch with us.
The apartment itself was nice with a newly remodeled kitchen and plenty of space to spread out. It was not nearly as bright as it looked in the pictures but what can you expect from a ground level apartment? We had no internet problems as reported by some earlier reviewers. Just a few things could be improved if I were to rent this property again. First, the bathroom could use a little updating. The tub was peeling and the faucet didn't work that well and there were loose tiles on the floor. A larger mirror over the vanity would have been nice. The bedroom NEEDS NEW FURNITURE!! The bed seemed old and was very uncomfortable. I ended up sleeping on the couch our last night there. And the dresser is just junk. We were fighting with drawers the entire time trying to get them to open or close. If you plan on cooking bring everything you need. They only had salt and pepper. And one last thing, more towels! We were only provided with 2 bath towels, 1 hand towel, and 2 wash cloths. We had to do a load of laundry half way through our 4 day trip.

Spacious and charming

We enjoyed our second stay in this apartment. Some things we like: the spaciousness, the layout of the kitchen, the comfortable bed and the nice patio and location, plenty of towels and extra blankets. Some things need improvement: bathroom floor seemed dirty and bathroom needs updating, kitchen needs hot pads and a toaster, there's no DVD player, lanai needs cleaning. Overall we like the place though.

The rental was in a convenient and beautiful location. Unfortunately, when we arrived a Production Company was filming on the block where we were staying, therefore we could not park anywhere near then rental. It was an inconvenience, and not something rental company could control, but it would have been nice to have a heads-up. The rental was clean, but there were no bath towels, one hand towel and no toiletries. A call to housekeeping resolved the issue, but because we had left the unit to explore the city we were told we had to return & put the key back in the lockbox for housekeeping to bring our supplies. Once we were able to get back to the unit, we decided it was too late to venture back out. Forty-five minutes went by and we made a second call to customer service for our linen request. Housekeeping arrived in approx. 15 min.
Other than the first evening issues, the stay was acceptable. The unit was pretty much as expected. The bed was comfortable & there was plenty of space. The tub/shower could use an upgrade.
We enjoyed the Crystal Beer Parlor just around the corner. It was also nice to have the convenience of the DOT bus stops for free transportation. Savannah's Squares are beautiful and full of history.
We enjoyed our stay.

The rental was clean with everything we needed except a toaster. Not a problem as we just used a skellet. Loved the location, could wald or take DOT everywhere we wanted to go. We had one problem and it was taken care of immediately. No head in apt when we arrived, 56 degrees inside, 60 outside. It took us 24 hrs to have sufficient warmth to be comfortable. Would use Lucky Savannah again.

If you are like most people nowadays, you take a short vacation, but you still need to work while the family sleeps in. If this is you, DO NOT rent this apartment. The Internet connection is basically not there. My laptop would connect for a minute, then down for 10 minutes. In my case, that meant logging in each time to my remote computer – very frustrating.

The Wi-Fi router they use must be “ancient”, or perhaps the people upstairs were using all the bandwidth. It seems that both apartments share a router and Internet account. When I enquired about this problem to Lucky, they said the “wifi is very spotty in the historic district”. She obviously had no clue as to how wi-fi and the Internet works when it is brought into a house. The owners need to get a separate internet account with a capable wi-fi/modem for each apartment.

The location is great, on West Jones St. Jones is one of the nicest historic streets in Savannah. The apartment is mostly nice, although it does smell very musty, overlaid with a touch of a Febreze like product. There is lots of room in the apartment, so no complaints there.

My only other comment would advise the owners that their hand painted, peeling bathtub is gross, and they should either replace it or have it professionally refinished. Oh, and the description says they have a Keurig…they don’t. It is a regular coffeemaker.
Manager response on 2018-04-06 - Response from Lucky Savannah
Thank you for this feedback. Upon review, we were able to verify an issue with the internet during this guest's stay. While every guest hasn't experienced these same issues, the homeowner has upgraded the home to a better solution (Mesh network coverage) to insure good connectivity throughout the home. We do apologize any mustiness. While it's not something brought to our attention, we have installed a dehumidifier to improve the situation during certain times of the year. We did share this guest comments with homeowner regarding the tub. It is an original and historic like the rest of the house, but fortunately the homeowners will have it reglazed to like new condition in April 2018.

Very disappointing. The place smelled like an old basement Moldy. The WII-Fi was ancient, could not get a good signal for the entire weekend. WE left (1) day early due to being unable to stay logged onto to Net to do work.

We do so regret this guest's experience. While each guest is different and we haven't had similar issues in this home, we do have options available to resolve quickly when made aware, to include dropping off dehumidifiers for guests as necessary. We did confirm wifi had issues in early March, and would have also been able to drop off a wireless hotspot for these guests had we been made aware during their stay. Fortunately the homeowner has upgraded the wifi infrastructure as of early April

Have 3 little ones who loved pull-out couch and used Pack n'play in separate rm for baby. Loved the location. Lots within walking distance. Lovely master. Bed a bit too soft. If it had not rained, we surely would use garden to eat lunch. Very peaceful.Loved the historic feel of whole place.

The location was very nice and in a great neighborhood. The place was clean and spacious. The bed is very comfortable. The manager responded quickly to our issues with internet. It would be nice to have a radio to be able to listen to some music and not just the TV. It was a little dark because many of the light bulbs were out so this needs to be addressed. I didn't want to bother management about this. It would be nice to have some maps and some local menus and something to help people find their way around. Maybe some stationary of some sort to be able to write on something to take notes when making reservations or planning your day etc..We did enjoy the Crystal Beer Parlor right around the corner for a local brew and some food. Great little neighborhood restaurant. Savannah Coffee Roasters is also a great place to go and it's just down the street on W. Liberty.

This was a really nice place to stay. The location was awesome and it was just what we needed.

We could have utilized the beautiful kitchen more - this would be a good place to stay for a family that wanted to cook. However, good to note that there are no grocery stores in the area.

Everything was pretty clean.

My only complaint (and this might be a huge complaint for some) was that the wifi didn't work. We called Lucky Savannah to complain about this and they told us they'd send someone, which they never did. If you need to work or need wifi - I'd recommend not staying here. I think the router was located in the main house above, so if I were the owner of this property I would install a router in the Garden Apartment as well. If I were looking to book and needed wifi - I wouldn't book unless this place had it's own router.

Overall, we were very satisfied and would recommend (to someone that didn't rely on wifi).

Hi Emily! Thank you for choosing to stay at Cohen House Garden Apartment. We also love that beautiful kitchen and are glad to hear that the home was clean ands convenient. Next time you're in town, know that there's a grocery store (Kroger) about a 5 minute drive from this home. As for the wifi, we are sincerely sorry for the inconvenience and will pass along your recommendation to the owner. Please know you're privy to a Return Guest Discount next time you're in town!

We were in town for a week and found the location to be perfect for our needs! I needed to be close to several SCAD buildings for an educators forum, and my husband and toddler were very close to Forsyth park to play! The property is on adorable Jones Street which always felt safe and close to many cute shops and restaurants. We enjoyed eating at The Sentient Bean, Rancho Alegre, and The Sandfly just to name a few. While I found the property to be very nice in most aspects my only complaint was the lack of info on where we could find parking without meters (since there's no parking space). We were able to avoid getting a ticket, but it would have been nice to have a little insider scoop on where to park (we learned from a meter attendant that a couple blocks south there was unmetered parking). The property was overall clean, but the bathtub had obviously been painted because it was chipping pretty badly. However, these were very small inconveniences to deal with for a great property/location. We would have paid much more if we had stayed in a hotel, and would have had a lot less privacy & charm.

My friends and I enjoyed our stay at the Cohen House Garden Apartment. The property was exactly as listed but one thing that I would have liked to know is that it is below the Cohen House, so you do get a basement feel. Although the unit is below the main house it would have been nice to have curtains on the windows...looking out at bare brick at night was kinda creepy. Overall we were very satisfied with our stay..we were in walking distance of everything and that was our desire. I would definitely rent from you all again!

What a wonderful apartment! We used it for a Girls' Getaway to beautiful Savannah and enjoyed it so much. Very clean and attractively arranged. Great location for all the places we wanted to visit. One small complaint: the television never worked. We did discuss it with one of the management team and a young man came over to attempt to fix it but with no luck so it was never available to us. Fortunately we didn't miss it very much although it would have been nice to see the news in the morning. Nevertheless, there are bigger problems in the world and it certainly didn't ruin our trip.

Loved the residence, very comfortable, but we used the kitchen ALOT and had only one dish towel, NO hot pads, we had to call for an iron and ironing board and ran out of paper towels, toilet paper and dishwasher tablets. If the stay is longer than 4 nights, I'd suggest you provide more of the above than what was left. Hot pads and more dish towels are a MUST and a cookie sheet would have been helpful. Also, just a suggestion..provide some aluminum foil and cling wrap for your "cooking" guests.
