Unparalleled birthday experience

  • 5 of 5

My husband booked Eagle Island as a surprise for my birthday. Friends and family gathered for a memorable weekend of eating, relaxing and celebration. There was plenty of room for 11 to sleep and play. Andy even rented us another boat so we could make trips to pick-up day visitors! We pulled blue crab out of the water by the dock and enjoyed a seafood feast prepared in the outdoor kitchen. The sunrise rivals any I have ever seen anywhere in the world. The staff was attentive and thought of everything. Relaxing, beautiful and a lovely affordable luxury! We will definitely return to enjoy the activities we didn't get to in our four day visit.

Owner's Response: Private Islands of Georgia thanks you for your business. Eagle Island always has a lot of adventure and wildlife for guests to enjoy. As you are aware we offer three other islands that help make up the Private Islands of Georgia, Mayhall Island, Little Mayhall Island, Grassie Field Island, for you to walk and explore. Mayhall is 20 acres and has two separate boardwalks at the northend each 500', going over to Little Mayhall and Grassie Field. You can kayak or boat over to Mayhall for your adventure. Hope to see you soon.

Wonderful Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We went for spring break. We have 3 teenagers and it was a great getaway. Andy and his crew were very accommodating, helping us get settled and stocking the food we ordered online. Eagle Island is so unique! We went to Sapelo everyday, enjoyed the boat ride there and every day was different. Saw so much nature, bald eagle, alligator, dolphins, sea ray, osprey, even a wild boar! Will definitely come back!

Owner's Response: Thanks for a great review. The Private Islands of Georgia offer so many outdoor activities for the family...boating, nature, and a private beach on Sapelo Island. The Harris Teeter grocery service we provide is a favorite for all guests. When you arrive, all of your food is stocked, and your beverages are iced down and ready to enjoy. See you again soon, Captain Andy

Perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We celebrated my husband's birthday on Eagle Island and it was perfect! Andy and his staff attend to every detail. We took advantage of a side trip to Sapelo and had an amazing time. Nowhere else can you get a private island experience quite like this! This was our second trip to Eagle and definitely not our last!

Owner's Response: Thank you for a return trip to Eagle Island. Taking exceptional care of our guests is very important to us at the Private Islands of Georgia. I hope all of our Eagle Island guests will either rent the pontoon or bring their own boat so that they can explore the Georgia coast. I will spend hours with you in the boat introducing you to the local waterways. See you next year! Captain Andy

Secluded Private Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Second year at "Eagle". This place is unbelievable. Could not wait to get back here. Ten acres of island seclusion and privacy. Rustic/modern lodge with large wrap-around decks up and down. Every convenience you could ask for from outdoor kitchen to hot tub on the deck to quiet mornings or evenings on the dock. Never used the indoor showers! Dual head outdoor shower is awesome (no towels needed!)! Andy is a great host and he and Craig are always available to make sure you have anything you need. Brought our own boat this year and it was great. Andy helped us launch at Darien docks. Toured Sapelo Island in one of Andy's two trucks he keeps on the island. Spent the afternoon on a 9 mile deserted beach. Took trip to St. Simons for lunch one day. At the island we ate every meal outdoors on the porch or on the dock. Fresh crabs, shrimp, and fish abound. The days are long and the evening are filled with absolute silence...unless you count the nightly frog serenades or a rain on the metal roof from an evening thunder shower. Never saw another soul the whole week we were there. Perfect place to get away from everyone and everything and just relax. I would recommend this place to couples who are looking for an escape and to families who are looking to spend some quality time together. The lodge will comfortably accommodate 14. We will be back annually and hopefully more frequently. We now look forward to this trip every year. Thanks Andy for making this treasure available to those who are lucky enough to find you!

Weekend Wonder on Eagle Island

  • 5 of 5

Three couples from Virginia, North Carolina and nearby St. Simons Island descended on this beautiful island early Saturday afternoon. Owner Andy Hill met us with his excellent co worker Mike and drove us to Eagle Island. We dropped off our bags and boated out to Sapelo Island. Had a great tour there of the homes and beach and caught up on Georgia history seeing the 18th century ballast rocks from the European ships which came here to pick up the fine Georgia lumber. Sapelo is a jewel.

Eagle Island has every comfort. Two kichens! One outdoors to assist in any low country crab boils you may have planned. Fresh blue is easily caught off the dock. The wrap around screened in porch with a killer sleeping sofa and hammock is great. The bedrooms upstairs and down are very comfortable and the AC cranks up just right on a hot summer weekend.

Altogether a terrific getaway that is elegant, simple, and luxurious all at the same time. Make sure you visit May Hall Island and be prepared for an incredible house there, too.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your positive review. So that future guests understand, the Private Islands of Georgia are eight private islands on the Georgia Coast, and Eagle Island is one of the eight islands. We offer Eagle Island guests access to May Hall Island, which is 20 acres. On the north end of May Hall Island a 500' boardwalk connects May Hall Island to Little May Hall Island (9 acres) and a second boardwalk connecting May Hall Island to Grassiefield Island (17 acres). Guests can walk all three islands and enjoy the privacy of a maritime forest. We also provide access to Sapelo Island with its pristine beaches and usually you never see anyone else on the beach. Thank you for visiting Private Islands of Georgia.
