Stayed for three days. The size and amount of roaches, yes roaches, not water bugs kept getting bigger by the size and number. I stayed in the Ellington building. I reported this at check out and front desk appeared surprised. I question their sincerity with the amount of roaches. The buildings are nice but don't appear to be maintained. Baseboards... More

Villas by the Sea are individually owned, so two rooms are not alike. We were lucky and got a great unit that was updated. However, we looked at other units and most were dated. They were clean but had the feel of the 80's. While you do not have direct access to the beach, the beach is easily accessible and... More

I enjoyed my stay at the villas. We rented a 1 bedroom and it was really nice. I had read the reviews before booking the room so my expectations were realistic. As others have mentioned, there's no direct ocean view from the first floor and I did see a water bug in the kitchen crawling on the wall. We drove... More

The front desk personell were very nice. We enjoyed the room, but would of given this location 5 STARS if there was a television in the bedroom. The bathroom was kind of small, but it was okay. Only wish we had more pillows. Had a few bugs stroll through, a cricket and some spiders. We did not get to see... More

Was very impressed with the location, we choose a beachside view and that made a huge difference. The area was very quiet even though they were busy. I will add that the restaurant on site was the best food we found without driving off the island. I would stay here without hesitation if I return to the area!

This is a good place to stay on Jekyll Island. I've stayed here in various units and over several years. I would give it a great, but the units vary too much to say great. I've stayed in some units that were great and some good. Each owner decorates differently so some are cottage, beach, modern, etc. I've probably stayed... More

I'm here right now and was hoping to be listening to the ocean, but instead I'm listening to a chain saw, been listening to maintenance working on the playground, pressure washing the building, and cars going by. All because the person checking me in would not honor my request for oceanside even though they are only at 32% occupancy. I... More

Thanks for staying with us. You have booked an Islandside Mini Villa. All Mini Villas are on the inside of the property. We do not offer Mini Villas on the Oceanside. We only offer One, Two and Three Bedroom Villas on the Oceanside which are all a different room type. Unfortunately we do not have any one bedrooms available for... More

Originally, we reserved a two-night (Monday and Tuesday nights) stay. We enjoyed the two nights so much we returned for Friday and Saturday nights. The first stay we had a Studio Villa (through an online offer) which was very nice. For our return we had a one-bedroom villa which was even nicer. Both villas had kitchen facilities, with toaster, coffeemaker,... More

We visited here again recently, as we had been before for my brother's wedding and he wanted us to come with them back. For what we paid for our rooms I guess we expected a bit more. The rooms are roomy, but are a bit dated and the beds a bit uncomfortable. The service wasn't bad there as the staff... More

We recently stayed in a 2 bedroom villa (#508) for a short girls getaway. 508 has a fairly recent remodel, so it's not dated like some of the others. The appliances were also nice. This apartment had a great view of the ocean, even with the trees. The view is best from the upstairs master bedroom. The beds were very... More
