Overview

About the property

3 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, sleeps 6

On Jekyll Island the ocean breezes are calling…the most beautiful coastal sunset in Georgia wants to say hello!!

Jekyll Island didn’t have to work hard to earn the nickname “Georgia’s Jewel”. As soon as your car crosses over the causeway, you understand why this serene little stretch of sand was the playground of America’s most famous northern industrialist generations ago.

Steeped in a rich history worthy of Hollywood movies, Jekyll Island sits quietly, waiting to welcome weary travelers in need of a calming vacation.

If you seek heart-pounding adventures on you vacations, Jekyll Island is not for you. If you yearn for simple days by the sea…what are you waiting for??

Jekyll Island is unique in that it is the only undeveloped Golden Isle that is accessible by car. Sixty-five percent of the island remains untouched, showcasing the inspiring beauty of what its cluttered, noisy neighbors used to be.

It’s a golfer’s mecca, a naturalist’s dream, a fitness buff’s unimagined outdoor gym.

It’s a golfer’s mecca, a naturalist’s dream, a fitness buff’s unimagined outdoor gym and a shrimp lover’s paradise.

The island is covered with well-kept trails that wind through every ecosystem of a barrier island. Wildlife abounds and is so used to people that they often don’t run away...almost posing for pictures.

Sixty-three holes of golf meander through the rich interior of the island. Sea turtles was ashore to lay they eggs under the protection of the Georgia Sea Turtle Center. A new pier sits at the island’s northern end where you can catch fish all day. Not far away, the famous driftwood beach waits to be explored.

In the evening you can retire to the west side of the island and enjoy mother nature’s most spectacular sunset over the famed Marshes of Glynn surrounded by the ghostly memories of a by gone era when the Rockefellers, Vanderbilts, Pulitzers and Astors owned this island as their own summer playground.

Oh, did I mention the beaches?

Notes:
Villas By The Sea is a beautiful seaside resort snuggled into the quiet landscape along Jekyll Island's northern shore. It is one of the most distinguished Oceanside resort and conference centers on Jekyll Island. This is primarily due to the unique 17 acres of natural landscaping that surrounds and enhances the Villas. And only moments away from our unique Driftwood Beach on Jekyll Island. Property amenities include a spectacular pool with lounge chairs, dining area, snack bar and kiddie pool. A large outdoor cooking area sits just off the main building under a canopy of shady trees. The main building houses the Click Cafe, a business center and coffee shop combo, The Driftwood Bistro, boasting one of the most delicious menus on the island, and a large sports bar with projection screen. There is a workout room, laundry room, and bike rental on site.

Beautiful place!

Beautiful place!

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

The condo is very clean and comfortable with everything you may need to feel at home away from home. We cooked most of our meals and the kitchen had everything we needed. The rooms are nicely decorated, beds are comfortable and TVs are in every room.

The location of the property is perfect! It is a beautiful short walk to the regular beach, and! to the magical Driftwood Beach. We got to walk on it, climb the trees and take a lot of great pictures. We enjoyed watching all the changes that the high and low tide brought.

Overall, the place is quiet but offers a lot of things to do and see - bike rides along the marshes were such a treat.

Jekyll Island is a place to truly relax. Loved it.

EXCELLENT CONDO - VERY CLEAN AND COMFORTABLE

  • 5 of 5

This condo was perfect for our one week stay in Jeykll Island. The condo is very clean and the kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed to prepare our meals. We spent our days walking Driftwood Beach, riding bikes on the many bike paths throughout the island and walking around the historic district. The condo was a great place to spending our evenings relaxing. The master bedroom suite is very nice. We really enjoy walking Driftwood Beach early in the morning and this condo very close to it. We saw lots of deer during our visit even saw some in the afternoon while on a bike ride. We would recommend this condo for adult couples or families visiting the island.

Perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Jekyll Island. Quiet but still a lot to do, e.g., boating, horseback riding, pool, etc. The condo was perfect. Very clean, beds were comfortable, the kitchen was well equipped (although we ate out most of the time), and a nice little balcony. Loved it.

Peaceful and Perfect

  • 5 of 5

If you want to stay in Jekyll Island then there is no better place to go then Villas By the Sea. The condo is so clean, quiet and convenient. There is a terrific and reasonable restaurant a few steps from your front door. You can ride bicycles every where. The historic district is great. We took a ride to St. Simons island, and I would choose Jekyll Island any day, and this place over everything!! I can't say enough good things about it. I wish we lived closer; we would want to go every weekend. It was too cold to swim in the large pool and would like to go back when it is warmer to enjoy that also. The restaurant is only open for dinner now, but in March will open for lunch; so you can sit by the pool and have your lunch brought to you and your condo only a few steps away. The ocean is a two minute walk from the condo. What could be better.
