About Luxury Living Properties
Luxury Rental Homes and Suites
Luxury Living Properties is not just a premier luxury accommodations company. We are passionate about saving Savannah’s resplendent old homes from dilapidation and condemnation. We select aging “Grand Ladies” that have been neglected and fallen into severe disrepair and meticulously restore them back to the shining jewels of Savannah as they were in the 19th century. Luxury Living Properties takes great pride in its Award Winning Preservation efforts to preserve Savannah’s greatest treasures for the enjoyment of travelers today and future generations.
We give discriminating travelers the rare opportunity to experience the opulence and majesty of Savannah in the 1800s. Our growing list of Happy VIP customers, Movie Stars, Heads of State, European Royalty, and Billionaire CEOs, appreciate that our vacation homes blend the amenities offered at the finest Savannah Hotels with the seclusion, comfort and splendor of a luxurious Historic Savannah home. Our goal is simple – to create a unique and genteel atmosphere reminiscent of the Old South – as our guests to experience the “True Savannah.” Live like a Savannah local in an exquisitely restored and furnished historic vacation home or suite. A vacation in Savannah’s Historic Landmark District MUST be spent in a Luxury Living Savannah vacation rental property.

Meet the Founder: Tammy Jo Long
After a life-threatening event in 2002, Tammy Jo took stock of her life as a technology industry executive and decided changes were needed. She quit her lucrative job and invested her life savings in her passion: renovating historic homes. She chose the lovely town of Savannah as her base and got to work restoring aging homes to their former Southern glory.
Tammy Jo has traveled the world and is especially fond of Europe, where staying in private estate homes, manor houses, and castles is considered the norm. When traveling to a new country or city, she always exhausts staying at a unique property with character before she relents to stay at a hotel. As a collector of antiques and art, and an appreciator of fine food and wine, she appreciates the fine furnishings and décor one finds in a private residence as well as receiving inside information on the local jewels of restaurants and shopping that only the locals can share. So Tammy Jo decided to combine her passions for historic restoration and lavish travel into the perfect formula for success…Luxury Living Properties, Inc.
Almost a decade later, Tammy Jo has completed renovations on five grand homes in historic Savannah, won multiple Local, State and National Awards for following the strict preservation guidelines set by the U.S. Department of Natural Resources and built a successful vacation rental business during economic tough times.
Those homes – the Wedding Cake Collection, the Washington Square Collection, and the Jones Street Suites – comprise Tammy Jo’s successful business Luxury Living Savannah. The grand homes, with their painstaking attention to historic detail, meticulous restoration of architectural features and a nod toward Southern-style luxury living, welcome guests to enjoy the best of Savannah in comfort and elegance.
Tammy Jo then decided to add another vacation experience for guests and started Luxury Living Tybee, which expanded her business to include Oceanfront Beach Houses on nearby Tybee Island.
A self-made woman entrepreneur, Tammy Jo taught herself the basics of renovation, the ins and outs of navigating complex historic home preservation guidelines, and the key to turning visiting guests into repeat customers. Long taught herself the hotel business from reservations to housekeeping.
Today, Luxury Living Properties, Inc. offers the perfect collection of properties and beach houses for romantic getaways, weddings, family reunions, corporate events, graduations, and short-term housing in Historic Savannah or on casual Tybee Island.
Tammy Jo, a Kentucky native, co-resides between Savannah and Chicago where her son Robby goes to school. Robby spends his summers with her in Savannah and on Tybee Island where he works on his southern accent!
