Best Airbnbs in Charleston and Savannah

I’ve been hit hard by the travel bug. I don’t know if it is from booking our honeymoon or the rare 70 degree sunny days in the middle of winter, but, whatever it is has me daydreaming of escaping to somewhere beautiful! Luckily, there are two cities fairly close by that we love to getaway to. Hotels are fabulous and all but sometimes you can find a really great apartment or home, especially if you’re traveling with a group, and usually those have the most character and local feel to them! I caught myself searching through Airbnb the other day and thought I would put together some of my favorite Airbnb’s in both Savannah and Charleston.


For 2 People

1014 (With the Cutest Balcony!):

I can already picture myself eating breakfast (perhaps to-go from Clary’s Cafe) on this adorable balcony overlooking Savannah. This quaint 1 bedroom apartment looks like the perfect romantic weekend getaway for two and is at a pretty fair price, too! I’ve bookmarked this one for future weekends where TJ and I might want to travel down to Savannah this spring/summer.

Marmaduke Hamilton Estate Suite 2:

Prime location and salt-water hot tub are the two perks that caught my eye for this one. This little apartment is settled on a property including the cutest courtyard and the perfect location to roam the historic district of Savannah. The bedroom décor looks pretty charming as well. One of the best parts about this apartment is the PRICE. You can visit on a weekend in the spring for under $160/night and it would be hard to find a hotel with this location at a price this low.


Moonlight Room:

When you’re on a budget but need to getaway, finding a “private room” Airbnb is the way to go. This private room has the most welcoming and warm look to it and you can stay here in April (the best time to go!) for just a little over $100 a night, on some weekends. 20 seconds in to reading the reviews, you’ll want to book a stay here. Apparently the host also provides coffee, tea, juice, and other breakfast items. Definitely adding this one to my wish list!

For 4 People

Mirabelle Queen Suite

Sitting in a prime location in the historic district of Savannah, this beauty is definitely on my wishlist. The decor is clean, white, and calming and the property is as charming as can be. Although this Airbnb accommodates 4 people, there is only one bed and one sofa bed, so just keep that in mind when booking. See more details here.


Charming 2 Bedroom by Forsyth Park:

This home sits right beside Forsyth Park so it is in a great location if you want to explore. There are two bedrooms so splitting the cost between four people makes this one a steal! According to the reviews though, you might want to be careful about the parking situation. This one is perfect for a inexpensive trip for 4 people though! You may want to book far in advance though as it seems this one is already booked for the entire spring.


The Jones Carriage House:

There is something so unique about this house. It has a rustic feel to it which gives it so much character and I can’t get over the white bricks contrasting with the dark wood beams. Although it accommodates 6 people, there are two bedrooms with an air mattress for the common space so I’m adding this one into the ‘4 people’ category. The spring time prices aren’t too bad (under $250 usually) so if split between four people, it would pretty affordable!

Newly Renovated Modern Condo on Forsyth Park:

This little condo is the cutest thing and I’m pretty sure that if I stayed here, I would never want to leave. The tiny kitchen is my favorite part but the rest of the place is so beautifully decorated. It sits right on Forsyth Park so the location is pretty ideal. The cost is also unbeatable, especially if you have a small group going. If you wanted to stay one weekend in May, the rate is about $200 a night.


For 6+ People

The One With the Bicycle on the Wall:

I’ve stayed in this beautiful home before with two other of my “best friend couples” about 3 years ago. We had the best time and were able to walk everywhere. Each couple had their own bedroom with a lot of privacy and the house was as charming as can be. It was huge and in such a perfect location. I’m dying to visit again and would highly recommend this one for a group trip! Plus, it is a big pink house so what more could you ask for?

Light Filled Apartment:

I am in love with how clean and simple this apartment is! It’s huge and is a great price for a big group of friends/family. Situated close to downtown, it is only a 15-20 minute walk to most restaurants/the water. I’m definitely keeping this one in mind for any big group trips/bachelorette weekends!


For 2 People

Spacious 1 Bedroom Apartment:

If you’re wanting to stay in a prime downtown Charleston location, this might be the most cost effective way! This apartment definitely has a casual Charleston feel to it and is in walking distance to everything downtown. The price is around $200/night for a weekend spring night and sleeps two people. I love how bright and welcoming it is and looks like a true local Charleston residence.


Studio 36:

While this accommodates 4, it really only has one bedroom and is a studio apartment. It’s decorated in a perfectly-Charleston way and it even has a cute little backyard patio with a hammock… so cute. It is about $250 a night for a spring weekend night which isn’t too bad, especially for the location. You’ll definitely want to see the photos of this one!

For 4 People

Restored Vintage Hatteras Yacht:

I mean, this is one way to experience the Ashley River. Can you imagine the sunsets and sunrises on your stay in this yacht? This would be a fun and adventurous trip for sure and the price is $300/night in the spring. I’m seriously considering booking a weekend on this boat and according to the reviews, it’s pretty spacious too!


For 6+ People

The Charleston Single Harborside:

This home overlooks the harbor and sleeps a bunch of people! It’s apparently close to everything but in a newer “up and coming” neighborhood. This one is great for a big group of friends since there is so much space and it has a lot of character with all of the exposed brick fireplaces. Definitely keeping this one in mind for group travels!


Cozy Downtown Bungalow:

This house is just what you’d picture from reading the description. It’s a cute and cozy bungalow downtown and sleeps 6 people. It is a bit pricey but with a large group, it may be worth it! The pet policy also says “some pets” so that is hopeful and rare for a lot of these. One of the best parts about this is the ample parking since it can get expensive to park downtown.


Downtown Charleston Single Home with Courtyard:

This house had me at the teal door. Aside from that though, this house sleeps up to 8 people and has great perks such as a porch with a big swing and a convenient location. Reviews do say that it is an older house but I think that just gives a bit more character. The price is definitely affordable if you’re traveling with a large group!


If any of you have stayed in any cute apartments to rent in Savannah or Charleston, I’d love to hear about them! Do you have any favorites of the ones above?

Thanks for reading!
