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 with us..1 being a 60 lb Goldendoodle! It's also so quiet and relaxing! It is true that when the tide is up there is zero beach at the resort but when it is low tide there is a very nice beach which we walked with our dogs every morning. When the tide was up we walked above the rocks to driftwood beach a short walk away. We also brought our bikes but there are rentals and biked around quite a bit. We were there from April 5-9 and it rained every day except the day we left...that being said we had a BLAST anyway! There is so much to do and see here and this is a great place to stay! DEFINITELY be back.

Stayed: April 2014

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 dish soap, salt and pepper. The grounds were pleasant, staff were friendly and helpful, and the restaurant was surprisingly good, particularly for southern specialties (lwith great deals on bottles of wine). It's not the place for those who require luxury, but very pleasant and comfortable for those who want to relax in a home-like setting.

Room Tip: Higher floors and overlooking the beach/boardwalk for best views and easiest beach access, if you...

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 peace and quiet and a break from all the noise and bustle, this is the way to go. We rented bikes to ride around the island which was a great family moment discovering the island. The staff was exceptional delivering fresh linen and towels each day. Full service was available, but for us basic amenity supplies were fine. This was a great stay and definitely a repeat.

Room Tip: The island view is just as quiet as the beach view. The entire villa is great.

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 from the living space. Plenty of windows for sunshine and a small patio to sit on and listen to the waves crash. The boardwalk was beautiful and relaxing with lovely Adirondack chairs. It is also within walking distance to the eerily beautiful driftwood beach. Lots of walking and biking paths. Plenty of amenities, including bike rentals, washer and dryers, pool, playground, and yard checkers. The restaurant on site, The Driftwood Bistro, was delicious!! Overall, a great place to stay.

Room Tip: We were on the first floor, but I believe if you get a room on the 3rd floor you might have an ocean...

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 beautiful. Great shaded playground for those with younger children. Good boardwalks and beautiful driftwood beach is a short 3-4 minute walk. You can not beat the bike paths on JI. So quiet and relaxing. Thanks for a great weekend!

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 unit. Very quiet. We booked an ocean view with patio and the view of the ocean is very serene during sunset and sunrise.

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 makes it such a wonderful place to stay.
