I spent 3 nights here with a small convention. The rooms were wonderful, the staff was great! Peaceful and beautiful. The convention area was great and the meals were excellent. We will definitely come back next year.

My husband surprised me with this trip for my birthday and it was wonderful! We were so pleasantly surprised when we got in our 1 bedroom villa..it was so clean and nicely decorated! We had a 1st floor villa that walked right out to the pool. It was the perfect size and so convenient for our 2 dogs we brought... More

We stayed in a 3 bedroom condo overlooking the beach for a week for a family gathering. It was clean, spacious, had a gorgeous view from the balcony, and the floor plan allowed for a good mix of privacy and togetherness. Beds were very comfortable, though I wish the kitchen had been equipped with a few basics (beyond dishes) like... More

We stayed in condo 252. It was tastefully decorated, spacious and clean. We will definitely return to this location. The condo well exceeded our needs. The grounds was meticulously manicured with lush palms and ferns.We were within steps of the quiet beachside location already equipped with chairs and a charming, tranquil view. I fell asleep twice. If you're looking for... More

We honeymooned here and will definitely be going back to Villas by the Sea on future anniversaries. Our room was cozy and had all the comforts of home. You are able to adjust the thermostat to make the temperature most comfortable for you. We had a full kitchen with all dishes and accessories to cook with. The bedroom was separate... More

I was a little scared to book this because of the 30+ bad reviews. I'm so glad we did. Our 1bedroom island view condo could not have been more cute or clean. It was perfect. Great bike rentals, great on-site restaurant, very personable staff. The outside is a bit dated but the prices are very reasonable and the grounds are... More

Stayed here for 2 nights because of their promotion and half priced off. I enjoyed my stay and i would very much want to come back. The room is very clean and i like the Southern design. I didn't think that these are privately owned condos, no wonder it is very clean and the owner really takes care of their... More

We have stayed in the same villa for the past four years in late October for the GA/FLA game and would not change a thing! We take our fur babies with us and the staff at checkin always has a little pet package for them at the front desk. Jekyll Island is quiet, beautiful and peaceful and that is what... More

Staff was friendly. Villa needs a lot of updates and attention. Very clean except I did take note in bedroom the night table glass was nasty in the back. Sofa in sitting area had mixed pleather cushions with a wicker couch super tacky and outdated. Needs more outlets. Bedroom could use a fan. Bathroom could use a fan/ light option.... More

Thanks for staying with us. We appreciate your suggestions and feedback. We would have gladly found you another villa had we known of your concern. Jekyll Island has some stores in mobile units while a new Beach Village is under construction. The new shopping area will be open in late 2014. More
