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

We spent 9 days in Jekyll, at a different hotel. The last day, the boys asked to stay for 4th of July. I called and you guys had a room, so we booked it at $451! The view from our room was great! 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

We loved our vacation at Jekyll Island this year. In the past we've stayed at the Oceanside or rented a house, but even before we knew the Oceanside was going to be closed for renovations this year, we had already decided to try VBTS because we had been impressed by their grounds/pool etc when we went to the Driftwood for...

Reserved a one bedroom mini-villa. Space was good and comfortable. Bathroom was very spacious. Once concern was that we were told that the sofa would be a fold out bed. It was not, and the type of sofa it was, you couldn't even lie down on it. This was somewhat a challenge as we have 2 teenagers with only 1... More

We stayed here for the weekend just to get away for a couple of days. To stay here in a 3 bedroom villa was pretty expensive for the weekend, but that's about any place near the beach in the summer time. We arrived earlier than expected, so we decided to see if it was possible to go ahead and check... More

We were at the Villas for three days for a wedding. The accommodations were very comfortable and very close to the ocean boardwalk. The staff was very friendly and helpful, and the Driftwood Bistro is a great place to eat. The wedding ceremony was on the beach among the large driftwood trees. A spectacular setting. The beautiful sunrises and long... More
