Which Jekyll Island Community is Right for My Trip?
With summer around the corner and cabin fever setting in, you’re ready to plan the perfect vacation on Jekyll Island, but which of Jekyll Realty’s beachfront communities is right for you? With over 130 condominiums, cottages, villas, and houses to choose from, you are sure to find your perfect match.
Summer Getaway at Villas by the Sea
The Villas by the Sea on Jekyll Island are the perfect destination for your weekend getaway. These shoreline community apartments are just a boardwalk away from the beach and a short drive from the 18th-century historical landmark, Horton House. Your stay at the Villas isn’t complete without visiting the turtles and alligators at Horton Pond. After a nature walk with the kids, grab some Southern fare at Driftwood Bistro before taking in the night sky on your terrace.
Whether you stay in a charming, pet-friendly studio or a spacious, 3-bedroom apartment, you’ll enjoy ocean sounds, pool access, and shady picnic areas conveniently located on the grounds. With ADA-compliant features like wide entrances and wheelchair accessible showers, everyone can experience the luxuries of beach living with all the conveniences of home.
Sunny Adventure at Ocean Oaks
If you wander east of the Summer Waves Waterpark, you’ll stumble upon Ocean Oaks. This conveniently located beach community is a welcoming host to large groups of Jekyll Island vacationers, with houses that sleep up to 12 people, tastefully furnished rooms, and 24-hour beach access. These renovated Jekyll Island homes boast a quaint, Georgian aesthetic on the outside and a modern, seashore ambiance on the inside. Ocean Oaks Jekyll Island homes feature large, well-stocked kitchens and plenty of counter space to accommodate your large family meal prep.
You may be tempted to spend your vacation lounging in the charmingly decorated living spaces, but be sure to venture out to your private screened porch for an evening meal. A 4-minute drive will land you at Beach Village where you can shop for Jekyll Island souvenirs or grab a round of drinks. Head over to the local bike rental shop and spend a day riding around the island before relaxing in your king-sized bed.
Luxury Cottages on the Beach
The Cottages at Jekyll Island are the perfect combination of luxury and elegance. These exquisite spaces are your family’s home-away-from-home. Nestled between the beach and the plush Jekyll Island greenery, this quiet community is the perfect setting for an extended beachside stay. The Cottage vacation homes feature ocean views, stunning living spaces, comfortable bedrooms, fully-equipped kitchens, and modern amenities. If you book your Jekyll Island Cottage well ahead of time, you may be able to snag a beachfront home with an onsite pool.
On the west side of the island, only 6 minutes away, you can play a round at the Jekyll Island Golf Club before taking a boat tour on the East River. For a Jekyll Island experience on dry land, head north to Three Oaks Farm for a sunset horseback ride on the beach. After your adventures, fire up your gas grill for a barbecue in the moonlight.
