We had read a few of these reviews ahead of time, so specifically asked for a nicer unit for our family vacation. We were not disappointed - nicely decorated and located unit, oceanside, with a lawn backyard and immediate access to the boardwalk. Perfect for our family of four with dog. We had a great view of the ocean from... More

Check in was flawlessly fast,management was on site and greeted us. The accommodations were excellent and the Villa was spotless. The maid staff was exceptionally helpful and diligent. I found the price to be exceptionally reasonable for the Ocean view Villa. We had taken a short walk just after we arrived and in a pond of water across from the... More

We are sorry that our lodging accommodations were a disappoint to this guest and their family. Our three bedroom villas however are not equipped to accommodate 8 people. They are only large enough to accommodate 6 people, having a king, queen and two twin beds. Which is described on our website. We only have one unit that has a spiral... More

As some others have commented, our 'villa' was nothing like any of the accommodation on the web site. It was tired, shabby, unclean in areas and, to put it bluntly, appallingly decorated. It was like someone had gone to a yard sale and collected any old furnishings around. A far cry from the luxury, New England decor they put on... More

I wished we had know of issues with the unit when you were here. We could have addressed them with you or found you another room that you liked better. We are always happy to do that. Since our units are decorated differently, some appeal differently to different people. After hearing back from you with the room number I went... More

I enjoyed my stay immensely. Management & staff were courtous & helpful. The condo was clean & very comfortable. You could hear the sea at high tide against the rocks & at low tide a nice beach. I found my way in the morning to the computer cafe for my coffee & down to the boardwalk for sun rise. A... More

Best bet for my dollar! All the room and comfort as home. We will be coming back. The Vidlla we had was so comfortable. The pool was swonderful and the boardwalk was the best view on the island. I enjoyed the space and especially enjoyed the service from the staff. My opinion is if you want lots of room a... More

I have been coming to Jekyll Island for years since childhood. My parents would often stay on the north end of the island, so I have actually stayed at just about every hotel on the north end of the island, Villas by the Sea included. I decided to visit the island again for the first time in several years this... More

Overall the experience was great. The dining available at the resort was excellent and very affordable. Staff was very accomodating and actually switched our condo for another one on ground level because our yellow lab doesn't like stairs. Our key cards stopped working and they fixed them within minutes. Housekeeping came by daily and was very friendly and wasn't bothered... More
