Jekyll Island Villa Rental Photos and Description

2 BR, 1 Full BA, 1 Half BA, Sleeps 4-5.

Villa is situated in an Enchanting Oceanfront Resort Complex of privately owned Villas on the northern end of historic Jekyll Island. The pool is right outside the back door. The kiddie pool, snack shack, gift shop, lounge, and restaurant are all in the same area. This 2 bedroom, 1 and 1/2 bath unit can accommodate up to 5 persons. The master bedroom is upstairs and overlooks the pool and has a queen bed. The 2nd bedroom just down the hall has 2 Extra Long twin beds. Downstairs you will find a large well equipped kitchen, 1/2 bath, dining room and beautiful family room with great pool view. Overstuffed Large Sofa can be used as a sleeper for children or small adults. Perfect for families with children. The Villas by the Sea is a beautiful Oceanfront Resort, tastefully landscaped and well maintained, much like a picturesque painting, with huge live oaks and Spanish moss. The beach is a short football field walk away from your back door.

Casino, Cruise, Dancing Anyone?? : Want a great afternoon or evening playing the slots, the tables, or a little roulette? Well the Emerald Princess Casino Cruise ship is just a short 15 minute drive away. All ticket prices include: Scenic cruise, dining, music, dancing, access to casino gaming and a return-to-port snack. Located on 2 levels, the fabulous casino includes seven Blackjack tables, two Emerald Princess Stud Poker tables, over 130 slot machines (nickels, quarters, dollars and five dollar slots), Roulette, Craps, and Video Blackjack.

North Beach Tides are High: The Villas by the Sea complex is located on the north end of Jekyll Island. The tidal stream moves from North to South and over time washes the sand to the southern portion of the island. The beach therefore is very wide on the southern part of the Island and narrow on the north. In order to enjoy the beach to the fullest, please make note of the Low Tide times and plan your beach excursions around those times. This may mean beach in the morning and the pool in the afternoon or vice versa. You should normally have 4 - 6 hours of beach time daily. When the tide is high, there is still a portion of beach available for sun bathing and play, but it is located behind the barrier rocks that prevent additional erosion of the dunes. You can of course enjoy the beach during any time of the day by driving only a few minutes to the public beach areas. There you will find a sand bar that stretches 2000 feet out to sea. The children love this part of the beach.

Driftwood Beach: Directly North of the Villas Resort is Driftwood Beach, voted the 5th most romantic beach in the world by Travelocity. It is truly a magnificent section of beach. From Travelocity, 'Emerging from under a canopy of oak trees, one happens upon this isolated stretch of beach and can walk (or ride one of the island horses) among the massive twisted shapes. As if an open-air gallery full of sculpture, this place is an organic exhibition and no two visits are the same. If you're lucky, you may witness a dolphin swimming by. The light here is dominated by golden hues and is beautiful throughout the day, although sunsets are poetic and often set the horizon ablaze with a display of fiery crimson, orange and bold yellow. The St. Simons lighthouse off in the distance serves as a reminder that the world beyond is at once near and far.'

About Boyd Smith

From Athens Ga, home of the University of Ga. Graduate of UGA, Real Estate Developer, Agent & property manager in Athens and Licensed Residential Contractor. That's me and my son a few years ago on the Shrimpin Cruise. It's great fun and and experience you will not want to miss.

Boyd Smith purchased this villa in 2005

Why Boyd Smith chose Jekyll Island

We always went to Jekyll as a family when I was a kid for the Elks club convention. I had great memories of times there and it is one of the very few places that has really not changed that much in 40 years. There is a certain peacefulness at Jekyll.

What makes this villa unique

Its like stepping back in time. NO stop lights or chain stores. NO fast food (oh except there is a DQ now) or glitz. Plenty to do though - Biking, golf, tennis, the beach, water park , and on and on and on

Guestbook comments from the owner

This is a great spot for a family vacation. The condo was excellent, it had all the amenities that someone would need away from home. We had 3 adults and 3 children and space was no issue. The price was also very reasonable, as I did a lot of research before choosing this condo.

The pool was located just outside the condo and this was a great benefit with having small children. The ocean was about 300 yards away and was very easy to get to as well.



Another great benefit about this condo/complex, it has probably the best restaurant on the island located on its property. Our family ate at a couple different places and we all agreed that the restaurant at the condo was the best food at the best prices!!



I would highly recommend this condo for a nice family vacation.

Love it, Love it, Love it!!!

  • 5 of 5
This condo was in the perfect location for our family of five. We were just steps away from the pool and the beach was just a short walk away. We couldn't have asked for a better place to spend our time on the Island and we are looking forward to our next trip there. When we walked into the condo for the first time, we automatically felt at home. It very nicely furnished and very comfortable. We loved it!! I would definitely recommend this condo to anyone!! Boyd, thank you so much for all your help. We can't wait to visit again!!

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time in this villa. The accommodations were lovely and comfortable for the four adults in our group. We loved the easy walk to the boardwalk and beach- really just a matter of steps away! We enjoyed watching the water hit the rocks in high tide, then walking the short distance to Driftwood Beach, which was beautiful. The onsite restaurant, Driftwood Bistro, had delicious meals with plentiful portions at reasonable prices. We ate there two of the three nights we were on Jekyll. We would have eaten there the third night, but the restaurant is closed on Sunday. I highly recommend this property and hope to return soon.

This condo is very nice and perfect for a family! The location is great. You can walk straight out of the back sliding glass doors and you are at the pool and restaurant. The pool at the Villa's is very nice and perfect for small children. I would highly recommend this place to anyone! We can't wait to go back!

Perfect for Families!

  • 5 of 5
Although Jekyll Island was my childhood's annual vacation spot, this vacation was the first we had taken with our three small children. We were a bit apprehensive; however, this property absolutely made our vacation a success.

We spent our days at the pool, the beach, and the playground...all of which were within walking distance. The villa was very clean and comfortable, and the kitchen had everything we needed. The pool is literally outside the villa's door and was so convenient for us and all of the gear that our Littles require. There is also a very large kiddie pool with water that sprays from the ground that our children loved.

I would recommend this property without hesitation to anyone, but especially to those who need convenient access to the facility's amenities. We will definitely return. Thank you, Boyd, for providing a place for such a relaxing and memorable vacation for our family.

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5
Just as advertised. The unit was in excellent condition. Clean and by the pool. A very short walk (2 minutes) from the ocean. We had a great time golfing on the local courses. Not too difficult but challenging enough - reasonably priced and in good condition. The Driftwood Bistro attached to the complex was a 2 minute walk and served excellent food at a reasonable price (loved walking out with our half full bottle of wine - thanks Georgia). Highly recommend this unit.
There is a fee to drive on to the island - minimum $6 - check it out if you're planning to come and go from the island - well worth it for us.

Villa #332 "The Perfect Little HomeAway"

Villa #332 "The Perfect Little HomeAway"
  • 5 of 5
Boyd's Villa #332 was just perfect for our "get away" trip to Jekyll Island! There were 3 adults & a 7year old boy in our group---the accomodations were excellent! The pool just outside our back door was very spacious & a big hit with all of us! Access to the beach was only a 2 min. walk from our villa--it was so pretty & quiet, & the solitude was so refreshing! All of the pictures & descriptions on the website are accurate to the tee, and the villa was spotless!!! We will be returning to Boyd's villa in the future & HIGHLY recommend it to anyone who wants a clean, quiet,relaxing vacation!

Owner's Response: The pool is always a big hit with families w/ kids. So nice to be only steps away from the Villa for
lunch or a quick bathroom break. Tale a break and come visit us on Jekyll Island

Jekyll Island
Car: recommended

Jekyll Island was the winter home for the wealthiest families in America during the Gilded Age. Since 1947 the Island has been owned by the State of Georgia. For this reason, it remains timeless in many ways. If your looking for glitz, you'll need to drive to Brunswick or Jacksonville, as Jekyll Island is still a quaint little village where traffic and stress are rarely found. On the island you will enjoy golf a plenty, a fantastic water park, historic homes & shops, a full service marina, bike & walking paths, excellent dining, Putt Putt Golf, fishing on the beach or pier, horse back riding, and of course all that goes along with the magnificent Atlantic Ocean and beach.

Other Activities: Turtle & Bird watching in season
