A wonderful home like facility right on the beach. Golf, tennis and biking at your "fingertips". Great restaurant and bar on premises. Wonderful place to unwind and enjoy all the Georgia coast has to offer at a reasonable price.

My friends and I have been staying at Villas by the sea for years. We love the clean, updated look at villas by the sea. It is like a home away from home, and the staff makes you feel like family.

The staff is very friendly. The rooms are clean and much more spacious than a hotel room. The rooms have a comfortable and cozy feeling. The landscaping... More

I loved the location and comfort that I experienced. It was so quiet, peaceful and lovely with all the amenities I needed within walking distance. It was wonderful to sit on my balcony and watch the shrimp boats while the sun rose over the Atlantic. I plan on going back!
