Vacation Rentals in Savannah, Georgia

Aaron and Lauralee are in Savannah, Georgia, looking for a charming southern home for a week-long vacation. They'll tour three luxurious but very different homes near the Historic District. Which 'sweet retreat' will they choose?
The couple is searching for a place near their family where they can wind down from their busy lives and find some peace and quiet but can they agree on the house?

Rental #1 is The Fleming House: It's a two-story home facing the beautiful Whitfield Square and in walking distance to the city.

Rental #2 is The Marmaduke Hamilton House: It's a large, three-bedroom house with a grand entrance, wrought iron staircases and a balcony overlooking the courtyard. It's the most expensive but offers original details of the old south.

Rental #3 is The Jones House in Historic District: It's a three-story home located in the center of Savannah's Historic District with two bedrooms, close to shopping and sightseeing.

Also, you can visit Paula Deen's restaurant while you are in town. The Lady and Sons restaurant had its humble beginnings back in June 1989 when Paula Deen started The Bag Lady out of her home. The Bag Lady began as a lunch delivery service with Paula's sons, Jamie and Bobby, delivering bag lunches to area business people in their offices around town. As the delivery and catering business grew, The Bag Lady expanded in 1991 into a full service restaurant named The Lady in the Best Western Hotel on Savannah's Southside.

It's very important to consult a variety of sources when vacation-house hunting. By shopping around and talking to many different people, you'll not only learn more about the area you are visiting, you may also find yourself a better deal. Leave your options open by talking to several real estate agents and consulting multiple websites.

One of the best ways to find a vacation rental is to ask friends for a recommendation. Realtors can be a great resource to find a rental, especially in a vacation destination town.
