We enjoyed our stay! The property was clean and well maintained! My grand kids loved the view from the ocean front room, the pool, and the accessibility to the beach! We rented a surrey and explored the island. Had a great time!

We booked a one-bedroom unit with ocean front access. It was just a little more shabby than I would have liked - nothing awful, but there were several small repairs that needed to be made, and the place could have been cleaner. The grounds of this place are absolutely lovely - the windswept, moss-hung trees are just captivating. It's just... More

We booked a 2 bedroom condo with ocean front access, full kitchen, and laid back atmosphere. Jekyll Island Club Hotel didn't really seem to be very customer friendly when I called to ask general questions so we picked Villas by the Sea. I am a career hotelier so I am a stickler for clean and this place was really clean.... More

We had a great 3 bedroom 2 bath unit. (179) a short walk to the driftwood beach or the pool. Very comfortable, great views, all the amenities of home. Nice kitchen, beds, and peace and quiet. If you're looking here .. Ask if 179 is available. Just far enough from the pool and great ocean views. Our daughter stayed upstairs... More

Recently my family and I went to Jekyll Island. We booked a 2 bathroom, 2 bath condo at Villa by the Sea. It's a very clean, well managed place. Definitely we'll come back. Great time. Great memories!!

We booked a 2 bedroom villa which had the kitchen and living room downstairs and 2 bedrooms/1 bathroom upstairs. When we arrived, everything was clean and all the amenities were in place. With 4 kids and 2 adults, this space was perfect and allowed us to cook meals (saving money on eating out) and eat out a couple of times... More

The villa was nice but broken sliding glass door upstairs, broken door knob on room downstairs, we... More

I have stayed in this facility twice and I have had a great experience both times. I love the fact that it is quiet. There isn't a bunch of noisy, touristy type facilities (water slides, big pools, etc). It is a great place to go if you want a quiet vacation. I loved the pavilion and watching the tides come...

I have stayed several times at Villas by the Sea and have had a great experience everytime. I have stayed in the Studio and 1 bedroom units. The rooms have always been clean and in good shape. The kitchen has come in very handy in the 1 bedroom since Jekyll does not have a lot of restaurants. The rooms are... More
