We booked 1 night enroute from Miami to Maryland. You have to pay $6.00 to get on the island. The room was large with a full kitchen and a sofa(futon). Altho the furnishings were not high end, the unit met all our needs and everything in the unit worked. Wi-fi access was free and fine. Lots of biking and walking... More

The customer service was outstanding. Tammy the wedding coordinator really helped us out with every last detail (including moving the entire ceremony indoors due to a passing thunderstorm!) Villas are cute even though a little bit older, are still charming. We missed the bar/restaurant inside the main building, they closed at 9pm! Overall a very nice stay!

We booked a weekend getaway here looking for a quiet place to relax. The island was lovely, peaceful, pretty and interesting. The room we had was spacious, but very dated. It was all a little shabby reminding me of a 70's holiday resort. The apartment was a nice size in the living area, small bedroom & bathroom. The heating was... More

Nice & Quiet place to stay. Several duplex condo type buildings are scattered across the property shaded my trees draped in Spanish Moss. Had a single apartment style with queen bedroom & pull out sofa in the dining area. Small by efficient. Nice size bathroom. Queen bed was comfy but the pillows were awful. Would have been nice to have... More

We checked into a studio but there was a problem with a strong air freshener smell. The only other dog friendly condo available was an upgrade to a one bedroom ocean side condo. They made this change without any additional charge and were nice about it. We decided that when we visit next year it is worth the additional cost... More

This is an older property, but it is well maintained and very nice. We have stayed there for one week twice & like it very much. Jekyll Island is a great place for a quiet vacation, and this is an excellent place to stay on the Island.

Loved it here in January. Beach is right out the back door. Our condo was clean and was just the right size for the two of us. Can't wait to get back. Could hear the Ocean right by our backdoor. Staff at check in and check out were friendly.

I was on Jekyll island biking for a few days and "discovered" Villas by the Sea as I biked by. I decided to stop in and I was shown 3 different villas. This was in January so the rates were extremely good. From a low of $69 to a high of $89. I was sorry that i had already booked... More

We picked up a hotel travel guide driving up from Florida which had coupons/discounts for hotels. This looked like a nice place. The coupon was for $63.00 including tax... It was the best value for the buck that I have seen in some time. The room was a suite with full kitchen area fully stocked with utensils, dishwasher and full... More
