vacation rental description

We call our non-smoking, ground floor villa 'Retreat' because that is
exactly what it is for us - a
peaceful place to get away from it all in the beautiful surroundings
of Georgia's Jekyll Island.
Once a winter hide-away for some of the wealthiest families in the
country during the Gilded Age,
Jekyll is now a state park offering an unique combination of nature,
recreation, and history to her
guests. There is something for everyone on Jekyll. We hope you will
use the link to our Jekyll
Island Retreat website to learn more about the history of Jekyll and
the attractions there for
visitors today. There are also many more photos of our villa,
Retreat, there for you to view.
NOTE: Our unit has been renovated in December, 2008! We now have new
carpet in the bedroom, new bathroom fixtures, and fresh paint on all
walls.
Retreat is a delightful one bedroom villa located in Villas By the
Sea, an oceanside resort on Jekyll's north end. Retreat Villa #208 is
located in the Ellington Building, a quiet building just a
stone's throw from the Atlantic Ocean. Our building isn't oceanfront
but is the first building back and it only takes about a minute's
walk to get to the beach.
Our villa is decorated in a relaxing nautical style with many
lighthouses, shells, ocean collectibles, and prints to make your stay
a pleasant one. We bought our villa in 2003 and have
redone the kitchen, bathroom, bedroom, and living area, adding new
furnishings, mattress, dishes,
and many other little touches to make Retreat Villa feel like home.
In 2004, new carpet was added in
the bedroom, and in 2005, a new refrigerator. In 2007, we added a
new dishwasher, and in 2008, we
added tilework in the kitchen, replaced the bedroom carpet again, and
repainted the entire unit. We replace the pots and pans regularly to
keep them clean and fresh,
and we replace pillows and blankets frequently to keep them
comfortable. We work hard to keep our
unit clean and comfy - a home away from home for ourselves and our
guests. While linens other than blankets/pillows are not
included, you can rent them easily through our friends at Jekyll
Realty.

villa rental amenities

Villa By the Sea's seventeen beautifully landscaped acres provide a
tranquil environment for
residents and guests. Beach boardwalks lead through the greenery to
a sandy beach that stretches on
for miles. While there is no beach at high tide, there is a wonderful
beach right behind the breaker
rocks. Lying there and listening to the surf is a relaxing day in
the sun! World-famous 'Driftwood
Beach', named one of the Top Ten Romantic Beaches in the World, is
right around the corner and a
good place for walking and photography.
There is an L-shaped pool with a newly renovated splashpool/wading
area for children, a
restaurant and lounge, garden area with benches and fountain, grills,
and a children's playground on-
site at Villas By the Sea. Washers and dryers are available as well.
The staff at Villas is
courteous and ready to help you in any way during your visit. We
work through Jekyll Realty, whose
staff are ready and willing to help during your stay.
The Ellington Building is nestled beneath towering live oaks draped
with Spanish moss. With a back
patio and expansive sliding glass doors, it's a wonderful place to
bird watch.

activities and attractions in Jekyll Island Georgia

Development on Jekyll is strictly controlled by the state, so there's
ample opportunity to enjoy
nature and wildlife throughout the island. Bike rentals are available
on-site to explore Jekyll's 20
miles of bike paths. Jekyll Island is a golfer's paradise with 63
holes, and there is also a tennis
center and a water park nearby.
In 2007, the Georgia Sea Turtle Center opened on Jekyll. A rehab and
education center for all types
of sea turtles, the center is a fascinating place to view turtles as
they go through their
rehabilitation, to learn about the endangered loggerhead sea turtle,
a frequent Jekyll visitor, and
see the doctors as they treat their 'patients'.
For vacationers and permanent residents, Jekyll Island offers a
variety of activities. Children and
adults can visit the Tidelands Nature Center, play on the courts of
the tennis center, try their
hand at the minature golf course, relax at Jekyll's new playground,
go fishing, or head down one of
the waterslides at Summer Waves waterpark. In the summer, guests are
invited on Turtle Patrols
during the loggerhead nesting months. Dophin boat trips leave from
the Island Club Marina, and marsh
and birdwatching trips are also available.
Jekyll features wonderful bike trails wandering alongside the ocean,
across the marshes, and
throughout the Historic District. Bikes are available for rent at
Villas By the Sea, at the shopping
plaza, and at the minature golf course.
A new favorite are the 'Red Bugs'. Named for the first motorized
vehicle on the island, these
electric cars are a wonderful way to see the island close-up.
The Jekyll Golden Islander is a free newspaper available at most
local businesses. It lists tidal
charts, tours, and other special activities available throughout the
year on the island. In its
pages, you can choose a restaurant, locate a worship service, find
out how to charter a fishing
boat, go on a dolphin watch, or take a bird-watching trip. We've been
visiting Jekyll for over 40
years, and we still can't get it all done. But it's a lot of fun to
try!
