We stayed 5 nights with 2 couples and 2 tween girls. All had comfie beds, our own bathrooms with showers and good AC because august in savannah is hot. Living room and kitchen was also very well furnished. Location was walkable to everything and safe. Loved having own parking space behind house. Like I said it was perfect.

Close to so many things Savannah has to offer.
Debra M. Jul 2022
The house was very nice and clean. Stocked with everything and very spacious for our family. Walking distance to a lot of things! We would give it a 10 out of 10! The young lady got Vacasa was so sweet and hands on to help us every time we needed her!

If you have a chance to book a stay at Carpe Diem, go for it! This lovely historic home is conveniently located and so easy to love with it's comfortable furnishings, well-appointed kitchen, multiple TVs, 3 bedrooms, 3 baths, great indoor & outdoor spaces, and on-site parking for 2 cars. Our stay here was a wonderful way to experience Savannah for the first time. Thank you to the owners and to Vacasa for your gracious hospitality!

We had a terrific time at Carpe Diem. The perfect place to relax and use as a starting point for exploring. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

I stayed here with my fiancé and 2 boys for a week in preparation for my Savannah wedding, and it was so perfect! The perfect amount of space, and the kitchen/living area was so great for down time. We enjoyed leisurely walking home from dinner on River Street every night to walk off what we ate! The patio area was perfect for morning coffee - very cute and cozy! And the 2 parking spots made life so much easier!! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

Nice and Clean- well appointed kitchen - prompt reply’s to any questions

Carpe Diem was an excellent place to stay in Savannah. Everything we wanted to do was within walking distance, and the property was so relaxing to come back to after a day of fun. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

We were looking for a property in the heart of Savannah for a girls weekend and didn’t want to get a rental car as we preferred a central home base from which to walk everywhere. This home delivered! 3 bedrooms 3 bathrooms and a well appointed kitchen and cozy patio. Beds were super comfy. We had a fabulous time and logged about 14k steps per day walking to the river walk and the parks surrounding us. Shopping was divine!

The rental process was very smooth. Accurate listing in a great location. Lots of space for 6 to relax after a day of exploring the city. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Tanya S. Oct 2021
We loved the house in Savannah. It was beautifully kept, the kitchen was fully stocked, beds were comfortable, and the back patio was wonderful. The only down-side was that the property had an issue with the air conditioning when we were there. The rental company kept in contact and got it fixed, though.

I booked this place for myself and some friends, we wanted a big indoor space to all gather, chat, and cook, as well as a nice outdoor space -- that is exactly what we got with this home. The rooms were each very large and the beds were some of the most comfortable we ever slept upon, we didn`t feel it when the other person moved! We had everything we needed in terms of kitchen appliances and plates, and they even provided beach towels, chairs, and a cooler!
The only issue we had was that the downstairs airconditioner was not working (it was 90 degrees most of the time we were there). They sent people out to fix it several times, but after a failed third attempt they brought us fans and that made a world of a difference. They even offered us a discount since we weren`t as comfortable as we had hoped to be. The TurnKey staff were understanding and Jourdan went above and beyond with ensuring we were happy and had fans.

House was in an excellent location. Close to everything we barely used our car. House came with everything we needed and was cleaned very well.
Plan on coming back!! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

Carpe Diem was a perfect home away from home rental. Plenty of amenities, very clean and beautiful home. The location was perfect and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. I would highly recommend Carpe Diem as your home away from home. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Christy T. May 2021
Really great house in a good location. The house itself was clean, there was an ant problem in the back patio, but we were able to address with some sprays and traps. Would recommend adding additional sheets for each room-there we’re no top sheeets , replacing missing bath mats, and getting the correct size toilet seat for main level restroom. Guests should plan to bring their own paper and cleaning products for their stay. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

The location of this property was quite good for walking or driving to other parts of Savannah. This is one of the few houses that has a driveway for parking. The property is okay. When we first arrived, we adjusted the air conditioning which is quite good with separate thermostats for upstairs and downstairs. When we turned on the overhead fan in the living room/kitchen it was so out of balance that it was of no use. Also, the toilet paper holder in the downstairs bathroom was broken. I called the property manager about getting these fixed and she passed it to their care team. We were beginning a two week stay and the care team member Jourdan said they would be there to fix them when our stay was over. The mattresses in the downstairs bedroom and the upstairs bedroom near the stairs need to be replace. One just rolls to the middle with no support. We noticed that the filter in the cold air return in the dining room was filthy and needed replaced. We could not find a sweeper to vacuum the area rugs and stairs.
the washer and dryer that are provided are very nice and do a good job. All the kitchen appliances are top grade. Many of the bulbs in the lamps need to have a higher wattage. Not real great for reading. There was only one set of towels for each guest. Most places we have been to have a linen closet. Whatever service cleans, needs to spend more time going around baseboards, vacuuming sofas and chairs, and paying more attention to details.
Although this house served its purpose as a home base for our stay and was in the historic district, it is still the worse of the four or five homes we have rented from VRBO.
There are many great restaurants in Savannah which we enjoyed and the city is just beautiful. However, I would not rent this property again. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

We rented an Airbnb with two other couples for a four day get-a-way. While there we had some very good meals, took tours on the old Savannah Trolley and the Georgia Queen and attended the “Legends” show at the Ild Savannah theater. Weather was fantastic. The show was awesome and should be a don’t miss for anyone visiting. I believe the legends show runs until June This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

We stayed at Carpe Diem for 2 weeks. The house is conveniently located near the Forsyth Park and close to all attractions. The house was very clean, well maintained, and had everything one could ask for. The management team was very responsive to my questions and requests. They were professional and polite when we exchanged messages. We would recommend this property to anyone who is visiting Savannah.

This house was perfect for our family get together in Savannah. The house was exactly like the listing. The kitchen was well stocked with everything you could imagine. Each bedroom had plenty of closet space, and a bathroom for each. The outside patio was perfect! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Lori H. Oct 2020
Clean, amenities were plentiful. Queen bed is broken, the bathroom drain was clogged, light bulbs were burned out, and the toaster is broken. Drain and bulbs were fixed right away. The rest was submitted in a work order. Patio is a lot smaller than the photo shows. Off street parking is great. If the bed is fixed, I highly recommend this property.

Stephanie G. Jan 2020
We rented from Dec. 1, 2019 to Jan. 1, 2020. The home was very nice & charming. We loved the location which allowed you to walk/drive to many tourist attractions and restaurants. Private parking was also great and easy to use. We did have to interact with the property manager when the dryer stopped working but they were very responsible and a replacement part was ordered & installed timely. They also offered to reimburse us any cost we incurred as a result. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

House was amazing and in a great location. The only issue was the dryer didn`t work. Other than that, everything was fantastic and I would definitely rent this house again This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Steven F. Nov 2019
Everything you need was in the rental home. It was very nice stay, we enjoyed everything. The only thing we didn`t care for was the downstairs bedroom. The bedroom was fine, but unfortunately we heard every car, train and people passing the home at all hours of the night. Besides that we had an enjoyable stay.

Fantastic location close to downtown. great that there`s a driveway, so no car moving. Beautifully appointed. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Bruce S. Sep 2019
The home was located in a good location for walking or taking the free trolley. The kitchen was very well equipped, except there was not a drip coffee maker. However, the Keurig machine worked fine. There was an electronic tablet in the kitchen for getting info on the home, local restaurants, etc. It would not work because it was not connected to the internet. Since a code was needed to change settings, we were never able to use this nice tool. Also, the home info that would come up, was for a home in TX. Also, the door knob on the downstairs bathroom kept falling off. The outside patio in back was very lovely. It really needed to be weeded. Several were quite large and intrusive when we tried to use the area. There were also a couple of really big ant piles that needed to be treated. Overall, the home was wonderful and we really enjoyed our stay. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

Love the location, historic feel and all the amenities. Plan on retiring Savannah. Great location close to River Street and smack in middle of historic district. Very quiet laid back area with normal car and people traffic which was welcomed. Was down street from my great grandfather historic house we came to see. I have deep roots in Savannah so this house and location were special for me. Very clean, old house smell upon entry which is part of the charm. We had 4 people stay but only had access to two rooms. Please allow access to all rooms for guest numbering 3 or more especially for adults who want their own beds. Other than that the place was excellent. Kitchen well stocked with utentils , spices, extras. Plenty of extra toiletries ( soaps, shampoo etc). Too notch place. Oh can`t forget the posh patio area with the nice grill!!!! We grilled and enjoyed that area quite well. Lastly the parking was very convenient and had direct access to patio gates for rear entry through kitchen. Wish I could buy the place for a summer house! �� This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

Owner of unit did not pay electric bill and utilities were cut off after the first night of our 5 day stay. Turn key NEVER called me back after 5 calls. Did receive a text and email. Turnkey could not provide us with a suitable place to stay and refused to pay for a hotel. We were left stranded. Also pictures and descriptions were misrepresented on website. Overall a ZERO rating. Worst travel experience I e ever had. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
