“The Experience Of A Lifetime!!”
Reviewed 25 August 2011 for a stay in August 2011

To Anyone and Everyone -

The property we stayed at for the weekend - 1002 Drayton - was nothing shy of perfect!! Both inside and out exemplified the word cleanliness and the warm, down home feel of the property and decor made my wife and I immediately fall in love with the home. Everything from the location on Forsyth Park to the 'Welcome Back' note and gift to the little decorative touches made this vacation home better than any hotel we could have ever chosen.

All that being said, believe it or not, this was only the beginning!! Jeanne-Marie and her husband helped coordinate the most magical and special and wonderful day my wife and I could ever remember - they helped us coordinate our wedding pictures!! From the location(s) at Forsyth Park, Tybee Lighthouse and Tybee Beach to the 1962 Caddi to the amazing photographer Roger Kirby to the wonderful candlelight dinner at The Pink House; they went above and beyond exceeding our expectations and making our special day become our fairytale dream come true... THANK YOU!!

“Couldn't Ask For More”
Reviewed 28 June 2011 for a stay in June 2011

The home was perfect! We had only 2 very minor things to ask about. 1 was the upstairs a/c setting. It was set at 74 but Manderly's husband came right over, on Father's Day, to adjust it for us. 2 was we were unable to find a Swifter or mop. We probably didn't have to do it, but the home was so nice you just felt obligated to keep it as clean as you could. Once again they had someone right over to deliver a Swifter Wet Jet. It was my first visit to Savannah and when I return I will only use properties owned by this couple.

“Perfect location in a beautiful city”
Reviewed 11 June 2011 for a stay in June 2011

We enjoyed a wonderful SCAD grad weekend with family and friends. The location was perfect, the suite was beautifully redone in a heritage home facing the park. The inner courtyard and fountain offered peace when needed. It was a perfect location for our visit. Manderly at Savannah Dream Vacations made the booking, stay and check out very easy.

Miriam

Thank you for your kind review, and glad we were able to help.
I'd like to take this opportunity to write something, so the same won't happen to other people.

To the unwary Traveler:

There are many vacation rentals in Savannah. Some are owner operated, whilst others are operated by larger companies managing many units. Many of these rentals are NOT legal, in that they are not registered for business with the City of Savannah and do not possess the required business license. Consequently, they evade paying the required Hospitality Taxes totaling 13% of the booking fee, which all hotels, Inns, B and B's, and Vacation Rentals are required to pay. This allows these illegal vacation rentals to compete for business on an unlevel playing field, enabling them to charge lower nightly rates, which of course, attracts your attention. Many visitors to Savannah think they are getting a great deal, but these illegal vacation rentals often have low standards and bad experiences can occur.

Savannah Dream Vacations is both legal, and owner operated. This clearly makes a big difference to a guest’s overall experience, as you discovered. We are both legal and own the Homes we manage. What difference does it make? Well, I could tell you to ask Miriam or many of the other travelers we have "rescued" in the past.

We are registered with the City to operate vacation rentals. We pay our taxes and abide by strict business standards. Since we own our vacation rentals, we also take great pride in them, and make sure everything is always “up to par”. In the event of an emergency we also live close by and can be there within minutes to take care of most things immediately.






Things to be on the look out for when booking:

1. Not being charged Taxes.
2. Your rental’s address will only be provided AFTER you book (supposedly for safety reasons.) With us you know exactly where and what you book before you pay.
3. You are required to send a check, money order, or pay when you arrive !!! If someone doesn't accept credit cards, it usually means they're afraid of you wanting your money back.
4. Be very wary if you get offered a really cheap rate. Some agents reserve a vacation rental at a cheap rate to ensure the property is booked, and then they try to rent the same property for a higher price. You suddenly receive a phone call informing you that your booking had to be cancelled for some unforeseen reason. You are left trying to find new accommodation at the last minute.

Naturally, people like to get value for money. But remember, you often get what you pay for. If you want a great vacation and peace of mind, book with someone reputable from the start, even if it may seem more expensive at first. You will avoid the horror stories and additional expenses that some unfortunate visitors experience. All things considered, it’s a small price to pay for peace of mind and great memories of your Savannah vacation.
