Overview

Jekyll Island House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Jekyll Island is state owned, and as such, development of the island is restricted to only 35% of the island creating a very quiet, laid-back atmosphere. If you want to 'get away from it all,' this is the place! The beaches are relatively undisturbed, and summer is a great time to see the huge sea turtles come onto the beach to lay their eggs.

This is a vacation rental that's large enough for the whole clan, yet comfortable for one or two, and it's located in the Jekyll Beach area. The home has lots of living areas, including a sunroom that's perfect for games and entertaining. The dining room table seats six, but if there are only two, just sit at the breakfast bar. Jekyll's newest wooden crossover to the beach is across the street. This house is on the west side of Beachview, and is approximately 100 yards from the beach.

There is a minimum rental of 4 nights required.

Come enjoy the beach!

Why Nancy Fazio chose Jekyll Island

Jekyll Island is a true beach vacation as I remember in the 80's. Jekyll has avoided the busy growth of nearby St. Simons, and as a state park, allows a quiet vacation experience.

What makes this house unique

Love to walk on the quiet beach with lots of areas with no crowds. I enjoy seeing the sea turtles, and even have deer in the yard in the evenings.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Wonderfully quiet and peaceful family vacation! We loved it here.

Great house and location

  • 4 of 5

My party enjoyed our stay at this rental. There was lots of space and comfort with easy beach access. There was a great patio area with a grill and smoker (I believe). Internet access was easy and fast. The kitchen was huge with lots of space and great dinner ware. When there were concerns, the property manager immediately answered concerns. Our only concerns with the house was mold in the shower door areas and one bathroom faucet being hard to turn on (this could be hard for someone with arthritis). The front door lock had some trouble. Those definitely didn't prevent a great vacation and stay in the home. I would definitely stay here in the future if we don't end of brining pets; I learned pets are not allowed in the future.

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and my 2 young children stayed in this vacation home for 4 days and it was the best vacation I had ever been on. The location of the house was perfect - right across the street from the beach and a short drive to the sea turtle hospital. The house was very clean and family oriented. The kids saw a lot of wildlife in the backyard and we ate every meal on the picnic table out back. I do a lot of cooking and the house had everything I needed. We all found our smile while staying there:) I'm so glad there are still places like this that provide a good old fashioned family vacation. We will be coming back for sure!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your "amazing" review. ;-). You captured the exact feeling we are looking for! This is a tranquil setting to reconnect with the family experience of yesterday. So happy you enjoyed it, and we look forward to your return.

Very quiet

  • 2 of 5

The house is not located as close to the beach as I was hoping. You have to walk several blocks or drive. Comfortable, clean and quiet. Quiet enough to wake up to deer eating in the front yard in the mornings.

Owner's Response: I am sorry that you were disappointed in the location of the home. We have never received this comment before; actually, most other reviewers state that the home is exactly as advertised. I am not sure where you attempted to access the beach, but if had to drive a few blocks, you must have been driving to the public beach parking lot that is south of the home. If you would have walked across the street, you would have run into the wooden beach crossover access which is about 100 yards from the front door. I am also so sorry that you had to spend some of your vacation (and your birthday) in the hospital, and I sincerely hope you are feeling better.

Jekyll Island Wedding Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Great house -- accurately depicted and described on VRBO website. Sally, the owner, was very helpful from our initial contact throughout our stay. We were a multi-generation family group on Jekyll for my son's wedding. Folks said they'd like to return to Jekyll for a vacation in the future. The island is picturesque as well as an opportunity to enjoy a laid-back environment. Didn't have too much of a chance to visit sites/attractions because of wedding events, but I would definitely recommend Driftwood Beach @ sunset. Watch out for the sand spurs on the walk to the beach :-)

End of summer trip

  • 4 of 5

My friend and family had a blast here everything was good as far as the rental house. We were able to keep busy from going to the beach, the tide was up until 3pm, like biking and fishing. The location was good we will rent this again in the future.
