This villa is exactly as described. The location is perfect. The bed was so comfortable. The unit was clean and cozy having everything we needed. All the amenities were wonderful..pool..grounds..beach!!! We definitely will likely return to this vacation retreat.
Can't beat the view

The condo was nice and fully equipped. The view was awesome. It was located literally steps from the beach. I will stay here again!

Nicely renovated unit with exceptional ocean views. Tastefully appointed and well furnished. Clean and quiet. Only one bathroom (on the second floor), but a minor inconvenience. We would book this again in a heartbeat.
The condo was great...beach access not so much.

We did enjoy condo #176, but if I had known that the beach would have high tide the majority of the day over the 4th of July weekend, I would have rented further south. It was my graduation present since I did not get to walk the stage or attend a commencement ceremony. We did not get nearly the beach time we were hoping for, but the condo itself was wonderful. The pool at the Villas was excellent as well, and the Jekyll Realty staff was wonderful. They came to our rescue after locking ourselves out of the condo right after arriving.
A great place and family-friendly!

We stayed at the end of May/early June and couldn't have had a better experience. We loved the accessibility, the view, and the comfort. Definitely will revisit!

We were looking for a quick Island getaway and this was perfect! Villa176 is right on the beach with beautiful views but the Riprap (rocks!) along the water's edge prevent access. The closest beach access is about 500 yards away which is an short stroll in the sand or along the property. We didn't realize how close beautiful Driftwood beach was until the last day so will spend time there next time. Due to Covid19 pandemic, many local restaurants only offer take out but we went to the local Mexican place a few times for socially-distanced al fresco dining. We enjoyed walking and biking around the island - the trails are amazing. Recommend you do your vacation supplies shopping in Brunswick as there isn't much on the island. We would definitely stay here again!
Very nice place

Stayed at Ruby's Retreat from Christmas Day to New Year's Eve. Property: Spotless. Could not have been better suited for us, (Older couple + 2 grown daughters + dog). Recent upgrades make the unit appear and feel significantly more modern than its true age. Great value and only a short walk to Driftwood Beach. Cozy and roomy at the same time. Sunrise view. Love the back yard access within a few yards from the beach walk.

Rental process was well-coordinated thru the property management team from start to finish. Great communication.

Cooked often and really appreciate the like-new appliances, cookware & utensils.

Rode bikes rented from the complex 4 out 7 days there. Jekyll is very bike and pet friendly.

Dined out at the Bistro; great food. (Be prepared to get there early if you go. No Reservations.) Ate also at the Wharf by Jekyll Island Club in the middle of a ten mile bike ride. Pedaled to the Sunrise Grille in the Village two days in a row for breakfast, (and Bloody Marys). Loved the late night food and the atmosphere at the Wee Pub in the Village.

It was our first time to stay among the Villas by the Sea. Love this complex.
Jekyll, our favorite vacation destination!

Unit is very well equipped and in a great location, but the door wall downstairs needs some serious repair and the bath tub needs attention due to draining problems. If door wall isn't fixed soon, it will be impossible to lock it. We would have given it high rating except for these problems.
Ocean side

We loved our stay on Jekyll Island. If your looking for laid back relaxation from the hustle and bustle of city living then you found it. Everyone was very friendly, food was awesome and at a reasonable rate, unlike some other areas that are over priced. Our condo was beach view although you couldn’t walk out to the beach (revitalization in progress) from the condo at this time. I liked that we were at the end of the island near driftwood beach and it we loved it. All the beach access locations near us had ample parking with bathrooms and showers right there so we didn’t have to drive back to the condo for anything until we were done for the day beaching. We will be back! Thank you Jekyll Realty for the recommendations the Sunset grill had great breakfast and dinner fare. We ate there twice. Beachhouse has the best salad and calamari frita for starters along with a extensive menu selection. Our first night was Wee pub, wings, beer, shrimp po boy and live music. What better way to start your vacation.
Wish there had been a beach!

We often stay in this particular villa, because it is pet friendly and we prefer the north end of the island. We knew that the beach would disappear at high tide, but we were not prepared for the fact that the beach would be totally inaccessible behind a massive rock wall and a construction site extending for half a mile. We were told by the workmen that the trucks hauling sand and the bulldozers moving it around would be continuing for 4.5 months. We love Jekyll, but this was a shock. I cannot imagine how they got such a thing approved on an island where loggerhead turtles are attempting to nest. Of course we will be back, but only after the construction is finished.
