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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

I booked this location via the internet. In no way was there a mention of a $75 fee for a pet, After driving up from W.Palm Beach Fla. when we checked in we were then informed of the fee. Had no choice but to pay at that late date. Resort mgr. stated that they were going to redo the web...

We are sorry for any confusion you experienced. You booked through a third party internet site. The site in which you booked states that we Do Not allow pets. We do actually have a few pet-friendly rooms which can be requested by contacting us prior to arrival based on availability. We were not contacted prior to your arrival otherwise we...

Staff was friendly. Villa needs a lot of updates and attention. Very clean except I did take note in bedroom the night table glass was nasty in the back. Sofa in sitting area had mixed pleather cushions with a wicker couch super tacky and outdated. Needs more outlets. Bedroom could use a fan. Bathroom could use a fan/ light option....

Thanks for staying with us. We appreciate your suggestions and feedback. We would have gladly found you another villa had we known of your concern. Jekyll Island has some stores in mobile units while a new Beach Village is under construction. The new shopping area will be open in late 2014.

Just returned from our vacation at Villas by the Sea. We rented a 3 bedroom villa on the island side which was on the second floor. The villa was clean and well stocked with towels. Each vila is owned separately so the decor is different in each one. Our was nicely decorated. The pool is very nice and we spent...

We stayed a week at Villas by the Sea. We did enjoy our stay but it is a very quiet area and there is not much to do unless you are a bike rider, a golfer or can just enjoy relaxing. Our villa was on the ground floor, which is preferable so you don't have to carry your suitcases up...
