Ol' Blue Eyes did it his way many times in "New York, New York". Tony Bennett may have lost his heart in that famous city by the Bay. While living in the moment in Vegas, Elvis may have moved a generation of his fans to make the pilgrimage to Sin City, but, none of the above classic songs have captured the essence of a major American city quite like Grammy nominated songwriter and former Savannahian Jayne Olderman's recent Billboard release "There is No City as Pretty as Savannah". And that includes another legendary Savannah songwriter, Johnny Mercer and his classic "Moon River".
Savannah Getaways is delighted to showcase an excerpt of this instant classic of a song performed by the inimitable Tiffany Milagro and written and produced by the multi-talented Jayne Olderman. Jayne was gracious enough to choose from a remarkable array of low country images captured by professional photographers that matched her lyrics of her catchy tune in order to edit this special video tribute to Savannah. There is a reason we are known nationally as the Creative Coast. Jayne's creation of her Savannah love song so many years ago on that heart wrenching day she moved away from Georgia's Historic First City is yet another example of Savannah's pull on those of us that have come to appreciate Low Country Living. The video does more to capture the Spirit of Historic Savannah in less than 90 seconds than any 10 minute travelogue you are likely to preview.

OUR CUSTOMERS SAY IT BEST
This property was actually nicer than what we expected, since it was renovated (new paint, furnishings, decor) in early 2011. Immaculate, nicely furnished with traditional pieces, antiques, art work (and flat screened TVs). Well suited for a couple or small family. Small kitchen with dishwasher, microwave, stove top, small fridge. Washer and dryer off the bath/dressing room. Nice back porch for that cup of coffee or glass of wine, while catching the sunset. The bed was very comfortable, Though the apartment was essentially 2 large rooms (along with bath/dressing area/small kitchen), those rooms were spacious and well appointed. Noise was not an issue, even with traffic on Liberty. You were more likely to hear occasional conversations of people walking by (which was actually kind of nice) than much road noise. There was a good amount of foot traffic (as in most of Savannah), which made the area feel safe and welcoming. Some of the immediate neighborhoods (Pulaski, Chatham Squares) are some of the nicest in the whole city. Just a few blocks to Bull Street, Chippewa Square or up to City Market. Broughton, River and Bay Streets are not that much further. The visitors center is close-by on MLK; Telfair and Jepson Museums are a few blocks, as are SoHo South (practically across the street), Gallery Espresso, and pubs, restaurants and markets. There are too many good restaurants to name all. Suffice it to say, after 5 days of indulgent meals and a lot of good Southern cooking, the Olde Pink House managed to still impress us on our last night (we'd go back). It's not necessary to have a car, since you can walk just about everywhere you'd like to go. If you want to do some small day-trips (we went up to Hilton Head and Beaufort), it is convenient. With more time, we would've gone farther. You have a dedicated parking space which means that you don't even have to think about parking regulations. The folks a Savannah Getaways were all very helpful. Arrangements were easily made; entry with key lock box went smoothly; deposit was returned promptly as promised. This was a great value for the money. More room than most hotels, the option of eating in once in awhile, pristine surroundings as nice as you'd find in some of Savannah's best B & B's. We would highly recommend this property and hope to return before too long, ourselves. From the comments we saw in the guest book, many others feel the same way as we do.
