Property Details

Updated: Apr 18, 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.

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 :-)

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.

Christmas Family Vacation 2013-14

  • 3 of 5
This was a great house for our whole family to come together for the week. We had plenty of room to spread out. The down side was that we all felt that the kitchen, bathrooms and linens were a little tired and in need of updating.
It was a beach house and regardless we has a great time!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review. The linens are replaced annually, and we do try to stay current. I am glad you had plenty of room, and had a great time in spite of the dated linens. They will again be all replaced in April 2014. Thanks for your review!

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).
