I was frantically trying to find a nice vacation rental home/condo in the Historic District during one of Savannah's busiest times of the year...St. Patrick's Day Weekend. After visiting and calling numerous numbers with no luck, I stumbled across Armstrong's website and fell in love with the decor and charm of the Jenkins House. From the moment Monique answered the phone and told me the property was available, I knew staying here would be an unique experience of a life time for my entire family. The refrigerator was well stocked with orange, apple, and grapefruit juice, as well as milk. There was plenty of breakfast meats, eggs, fresh fruits, bagels, cheese, and jellies to satisfy my family of five. In addition to receiving a complimentary bottle of red wine, there was also a bottle of Sherry in the living room, which my husband and I sipped while enjoying one of the many free DVDs available to the guest.
There are so many other little small, yet thoughtful things, that impressed me as well. For example, although the website welcomes families, I never thought there would actually be activities within the home to keep the little ones busy. My one year old son played with a Teddy Bear that sat in a chair at an antiquated school desk. Inside the desk were a variety of books for coloring and reading. There were also antiquated wooden blocks. I loved the old-fashioned high chair that came in handy while our family gathered in the kitchen to enjoy breakfast. I was also impressed with the grand collection of poems in books written during the early 1800's. There were even National Geographic magazines dating back as early as 1961.
Upstairs were the two bedrooms, bathroom, and washer and dryer. Monique knew that I was traveling with two young girls and took the time to decorate one of the bedrooms in beautiful white lace draped over the canopy bed. The girls felt like princesses. I felt like a queen sleeping on top of my lush down feathered bed. Inside the gigantic bathroom was a shower enclosure with at least 7 different types of shower heads. The bathroom was well stocked with the Armstrong toiletries such as shampoo and conditioner. I was even impressed that fingernail polish remover was available for my nails. Little small things such as these and more were quite remarkable.
Before we left, (boo hoo hoo), my family was able to read past guest experiences and share our own in a special guest book. As the website states, this house is GREAT for families with young children. After tucking the children in their beds, parents can snuggle up in front of two fireplaces in the living room and enjoy the rest of the night.
I had no complaints and I'm quite sure, you will not either. Thank you Madame Monique and Monsieur Adam for a wonderful time in Savannah.
