We stay at Villas by the Sea each every time we visit Jekyll. We always stay Oceanside to enjoy the beautiful view. Our last visit was in April 2014 with our children and grandchild. We rented a one bedroom and a two bedroom, units 307 and 308. It was perfect. Both villas were very clean and accommodated all our needs. We took the family to Driftwood Beach, and they fell in love with it just as we have. It is a must see!

The staff at the The Villas is exceptional. We happened to be staying here in 2012 when Hurricane Sandy hit NJ, which is where we are from. All flights home were canceled for several days and we had to keep extending our stay. On top of it, we knew "Sandy" had hit our house and when we did get home we were not sure of what we were going to face. The staff was so caring and compassionate. Without us even asking, for the days we had extended they cut our rate in half. And upon checkout they could not have been nicer, wishing us well upon our return home.

When visiting Jekyll, Villas by the Sea is our only choice!

Just returned from another great week at the Villas, had a great time as always. This location always seems so peaceful, even during the season. There is so much to do on Jekyll, or you can simply hang out at the shady end of the pool all afternoon. If you visit Jekyll, be sure to take a slow lap around the island at dusk so you can see the miniature deer out grazing. We saw over 20 one evening, they are very tame, and especially seem to enjoy the new (& tasty) landscaping on the island.

Room Tip: Oceanfront or court side really doesn't matter here, you usually can't see the ocean through the trees, and the court side is very quiet, not a bad room on the property. Ask for a downstairs unit if stairs are an issue since there are no elevators to second floor units.

Villas by the sea is our choice on Jekyll Island because the villas are spacious, clean and comfortable and give you access to a wonderful restaurant (Driftwood Bistro) and lovely view of the ocean via the walkway. The trees give wonderful shade and we enjoy the nice pool also. You can walk, ride bikes or carts and visit the Island easily. We highly recommend this place.

Room Tip: If you are booking a villa with two bedrooms I would recommend the Ocean side. Beautiful view of ocean. The one bedrooms are nice on the Island as well as Ocean side.

Hello!
The villas are great place for family people. We stayed at villa 382 (2 bedroom) and 384 (3 bedroom). Every unit is managed individually. Some are nicer than others. From the Morgan building which is in 300's numbers of the villas we had excellent view of the ocean. All things were clean and we liked our stay. The mornings are fantastic! We saw most beautiful sunrises. We liked how clean the territory was and how well kept. Trees like oaks, laurel bushes, magnolias, palms - all make place very nice. Plenty of birds like cardinals. You can grill outside. The only true complaint is the shower heads in the shower, they should be changed. From the 2 bedroom villa you can walk out right to the grass and then on to the beach. We brought our own food with us and cooked all our stay there. First time we stayed 3 days, then we stayed 6 days. Just a few minutes drive and you can go to the millionare's village, museum, just a walk. Now, there are not wild parties and wild people, no neon and all fake things. Nature, ocean and all is clean. I would recommend it strongly to families, couples to stay and just relax from city, business and whatever people get busy with. Wonderful place!

Room Tip: If you really want a great view, then it would be Davenport building and Morgan building.

We recently celebrated our wedding anniversary by renting a little condo for two nights within the Villas by the Sea Resort. It was really nice, very clean and had a nice view. Unfortunately, the view called "Oceanside" is by the ocean, but you cannot "see" the ocean. It was still quite nice and we would definitely go back. The staff were all very accommodating and very nice, and the beach is a very short walk. Although the beach is not private, it is very much like having a private beach. Very few people on the beach this time of year. Really nice experience!
