Overview

Property Details

Updated: May 11, 2015
House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 8 Sleeps

Large home located across the street from the beach. Large enough for the whole family, but convenient enough for two, this property features a living room (with sleeper sofa), dining room, den, sun room, 3 bedrooms (one king, one queen, and two twin beds), 2 baths, plus kitchen and laundry room with door to back patio with outside shower. The single car garage features a refrigerator for drinks and room for bikes (not included) to ride on the bike trails available in front of the home. There is a wooden crossover to the beach, and since the Jekyll's beach is contingent on tide, this is probably as far north as you want to go on the island for beach walking, shelling, fishing, etc.

Great house and location

  • 4 of 5
My party enjoyed our stay at this rental. There was lots of space and comfort with easy beach access. There was a great patio area with a grill and smoker (I believe). Internet access was easy and fast. The kitchen was huge with lots of space and great dinner ware. When there were concerns, the property manager immediately answered concerns. Our only concerns with the house was mold in the shower door areas and one bathroom faucet being hard to turn on (this could be hard for someone with arthritis). The front door lock had some trouble. Those definitely didn't prevent a great vacation and stay in the home. I would definitely stay here in the future if we don't end of brining pets; I learned pets are not allowed in the future.

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and my 2 young children stayed in this vacation home for 4 days and it was the best vacation I had ever been on. The location of the house was perfect - right across the street from the beach and a short drive to the sea turtle hospital. The house was very clean and family oriented. The kids saw a lot of wildlife in the backyard and we ate every meal on the picnic table out back. I do a lot of cooking and the house had everything I needed. We all found our smile while staying there:) I'm so glad there are still places like this that provide a good old fashioned family vacation. We will be coming back for sure!

Very quiet

  • 2 of 5
The house is not located as close to the beach as I was hoping. You have to walk several blocks or drive. Comfortable, clean and quiet. Quiet enough to wake up to deer eating in the front yard in the mornings.

Owner's Response: I am sorry that you were disappointed in the location of the home. We have never received this comment before; actually, most other reviewers state that the home is exactly as advertised. I am not sure where you attempted to access the beach, but if had to drive a few blocks, you must have been driving to the public beach parking lot that is south of the home. If you would have walked across the street, you would have run into the wooden beach crossover access which is about 100 yards from the front door. I am also so sorry that you had to spend some of your vacation (and your birthday) in the hospital, and I sincerely hope you are feeling better.

Jekyll Island Wedding Weekend

  • 5 of 5
Great house -- accurately depicted and described on VRBO website. Sally, the owner, was very helpful from our initial contact throughout our stay. We were a multi-generation family group on Jekyll for my son's wedding. Folks said they'd like to return to Jekyll for a vacation in the future. The island is picturesque as well as an opportunity to enjoy a laid-back environment. Didn't have too much of a chance to visit sites/attractions because of wedding events, but I would definitely recommend Driftwood Beach @ sunset. Watch out for the sand spurs on the walk to the beach :-)

End of summer trip

  • 4 of 5
My friend and family had a blast here everything was good as far as the rental house. We were able to keep busy from going to the beach, the tide was up until 3pm, like biking and fishing. The location was good we will rent this again in the future.

Location

Activity and Interests

The home has easy beach access over a wooden crossover, which is a very private beach most of the time. Beach access is contingent upon the tide, so you might want to check the local tide chart for best beaching. Shells are frequently found, and fishing, wind surfing, swimming, and building sand castles is literally just a steps away! The area has miles of bike trails, a historic area, a water park, public golf course, horseback riding, and kayaking to name a few activities. Jekyll Island is located about 1/2 way between Savannah, GA and Jacksonville, FL (Jacksonville airport less than 1 hour).
