Location was great, liked the deck on top and easy walk to the beach and quick drive/walk to the different beaches and restaurants. Nice and roomy with lots of gathering spaces. Would have rated higher, but there were dead cockroaches in the kitchen. and when you closed the bathroom door it was filthy behind the door. pillows were flat, glad I brought my own pillow. while we brought towels and linens, didn't think to bring bathroom rug, bathroom rugs would have been nice. The exterior could use a good power wash too. overall the place could use a good thorough deep clean.
Perfect location

The location of Unit A was perfect- very close to the beach. Could see the water from the rooftop porch. I would be jealous if I was in Unit B. Loved the screened in porches in every room facing the sea. Some furniture was a bit worn, but we did not care. Spacious interior. Kitchen well-appointed, nice propane grill. One block from the ocean-side bike path. Had an issue with bathroom plumbing, got quick response.

Our goal to have a relaxing family vacation was a resounding success. This house is in an excellent location. The furnishings and house itself show a bit of wear and tear but it was clean and comfortable. We would definitely consider staying here again.

This is an amazing property. The only reason I dropped one star off is that the master bed could use a refresh.
Laid back place with great beach access

It was the relaxing vacation we wanted (and needed). The house has a wonderful, rooftop deck (shared with the other unit). It also has a quick, mostly paved access to the beach. Only a few steps out and you're there. The furnishings are *well used* but fine with one exception: there are three twin beds in one room and they're all cheap and bouncy and not very suitable for anyone over a very young age. Not comfortable. There are also two larger beds and they're somewhat better.
Meh!

It was an amazing experience to be located right on the path through the dunes to the beach this year! We were out watching the sunrise every morning.
The unit is very spacious and comfortable. The kitchen has newer appliances and plenty of work space for cooking. If the owner has a list of upgrades needed, the bathrooms should be next. Also, window coverings and screen doors need work in some rooms. Overall, a treat to stay here. Thank you.

Service from realty was good. House has nice open living area. Bedrooms and bathrooms really need upgrading, cleaning, renovating. Kitchen could use more plates, glasses. Lamps dusty, under beds dusty, tub desperately needs cleaning and caulking.
Close walk to Beach, and lots of space to spread out!

This duplex, (2 rental units make up this house) is so close to the beach! We loved that the beach was practically right outside the backyard! The high tide was not a problem because there was plenty of time to enjoy the beach when the tide subsided. There was plenty of room to spread out and the 3 tables provided space for: my husband to set up a temporary office, kids to play board games, and family dinners. The kitchen is updated with great working appliances. There is a grill. The trees/branches have grown since the online photo from the crow’s nest (the roof deck) was taken. There is a small “V” about 12 inches, of a view of the ocean. If an ocean view is important to you, you should find a different property to rent. If you have a sensitive respiratory system, this may not be the place for you. The allergens in the house caused my son to have respiratory issues. The other rental unit is separated from this unit by a thin wall in one of the bedrooms. I could hear the other renters’ conversations about their phones and dogs. The other unit’s dishwasher must be located right against the bedroom wall because I could hear it (sleeping was an issue because of the noise). The shower had residue, there was a surprising amount of dust under furniture, one of the lower kitchen cupboards had rat feces in it. We loved the close access to the beach. We were very disappointed that there was not an ocean view from the house, and concerned about the level of cleanliness in the house.

The property is in a perfect location, 2 minute walk to the beach. The crows nest up top is fantastic for watching sunrise and listening to the ocean waves. It is an older home, but very spacious other than the bathrooms. The kitchen and main living space have been updated, amenities are as listed, the two queen beds were super comfortable. The twin beds in the other bedroom are adequate for a kids space but the mattresses are not that comfy. Overall cleanliness was good, kitchen was clean, furniture was comfy in the living spaces. The bathrooms could use a good deep cleaning. I dont think we locked the doors except at night so we felt very safe. We discovered a yellow jacket nest just outside the kitchen doorway. I called the property after hours emergency number and reported it. Pest control was out promptly and took care of it within hours. We visited the sea turtle center, did the Capt Phillips dolphin tour and rented bikes, all were fantastic. Our favorite restaurant was Zacharys Riverhouse, fresh, delicious, and great service. We love visiting Jekyll Island and would recommend the property.
Great area

All of the other reviews are correct. This house is a little bit stuck in the 1960s. The bathrooms, the decor, the wood paneling, etc... but none of that mattered. We had the best beach vacation! Did high tide knock out our beach access for a few hours? Yes, but we used that time to bike the island and explore. This house was well worth the money, and I will definitely book it again. My only true complaint is that the kitchen was lacking in eating utensils. There weren’t enough coffee mugs or cups for all of us.

The location is excellent with beach access and roof top beach view. Cottage is spacious. Bathrooms could use a little work.

Great house so close to the beach but bring your own coffee machine - they do not have one despite a great, well-stocked kitchen otherwise. We loved bringing our dog with us. Lots of room for us to spread out and we all had our own bedroom. We would definitely stay here again, but I will bring my own coffee maker.

We loved the location being on the beach and in a quiet area. Many times we had the beach to ourselves or to just a couple of other people. The rooftop deck is a nice touch with a great view of of sunrises and sunsets. Kitchen has been updated and washer/dryer look new. Spacious areas to socialize and relax with family. Bathrooms are small and could use updating, but were clean. There is a sbbc light musty odor due to a roof leak that looks to be new. Cleared up with AC circulation but came back during rainy days. Tarp still in place on roof. Furniture and beds were comfortable. Quiet area.
Excellent Location, not so excellent house

Jekyll Island is beautiful and you can't beat the location. Steps to the beach access point, wildlife and bike trails. I knew the house was dated based on the pictures, but the dirtiness was not acceptable. Jekyll Island Realty responded appropriately and well, but we should not have found it in that state (stains on cabinets, dog hair on floor, stains on comforter, dust everywhere). I would definitely stay on Jekyll Island again and rent with JI realty, but not at this property. It could be really great with a good cleaning and some updating.
On the beach everyday

We were steps from the beach access steps. We could walk the beach even at high tide. The sound of waves lulled us to sleep. Our dog got to walk on the beach at least 4x a day. The open dining and living room was full of light from the glassed in sun room that ran across the back of the house. The couches and chair were comfortable and my husband had a few naps on the couch. The large screen tv was a plus! The updated kitchen had tons of storage and so did the huge refrigerator. We used the roof deck to read in the shade of the trees. The washer and dyer held large loads. We could take 10 to 20 mile bike rides going north or south as the house was mid island. It was only a 2 mile bike ride to the shopping area and most importantly the yogurt shop. The island was shut down for inside restaurant eating, but you could do take out in a few places. The Wee Pub was our favorite. We have been coming to Jekyll Island for ten years now. We enjoy being able to be outside whether golfing, biking, or walking on the beach.

We spent a nice winter at Cottage by the Sea. The newly remodeled kitchen was very nice, and the proximity to the beach cannot be beat. Altogether, the house was very comfortable, although the bathrooms are a bit dated. Would love it if the windows were working in the front bedroom!
Plenty of Room to Enjoy All Jekyll Island has to Offer

Wonderful and hospitable welcome from Jekyll Island Property staff! Roomy, well appointed house convenient to the beach and bike paths. Take a book, umbrella, hydration, and unwind. You'll be glad you did and want to come back for more.

Our family has been vacationing at this cottage for more than ten years and this was the best year ever! The entire kitchen was redone and everything was in great shape and clean. The staff always lets us check in early if possible. We are looking forward to another ten+ years.(I did miss the painting of the two little girls in the sand, but the shrimp & grits poster was great.)

Overall, we had a great experience on Jekyll. The location of the house was ideal in terms of access to the beach. Overall, we were very comfortable in the house, although it does seem like it could use a little TLC. Minor things, such as closet doors and kitchen drawers that are a bit worn, and don't work quite right. Also, there was a crack in one of the windows in the sunroom that should really be replaced, as well as a missing glass panel between the sunroom and living room. But, again, all and all, we found the house very comfortable.

We had one problem with the clothes dryer not working, but the folks at Jekyll Realty were very prompt in sending someone out to repair it.
