While we recognize that it is not common for temperatures to be in the 40's on Jekyll, the heater was not able to keep up with keeping the house warm during several days of our stay. The owners need to consider addressing this issue since we could not get the temperature above 62-65 for several days.
Otherwise, a great vacation property.
Response from Jekyll Island Property Sales & Management, INC.Dear Mr. Speegle, Thank you for your review on Island Retreat, and thank you for bringing my attention to the heating problem. It is very difficult to heat the larger houses with the heat pump systems. Based on you comments I am now providing electrical baseboard heaters in all three suites and an electrical heater invert for the fireplace in the master bedroom. I also have some portable space heaters that can be moved into other rooms when guests find necessary. I hope this is helpful and again appreciate your comments. - Sincerely yours, Mr. Brewer - Owner
We were here in Dec, and the description said there was a pool pass at the Days Inn. I knew they had an outdoor pool so we did not bring our suits. I did NOT know it was open and heated and there was a hot tube so bring a swim suit in the winter.
The house was 80% clean. Corners needed more attention, blinds were dusty, tub could have used a good scrubbing and toilets had rings in them. Also, one bathroom did not have any toilet paper. ( Be sure and bring paper supplies and soap for dishwasher and laundry soap, but there was some at the home. ) The only big downside to this home was the poor quality beds. They were hard and not comfortable. Anytime my husband moved or rolled over I was jostled and felt every movement he made. The bunk bed squeaked with any movement and the pillows on all the twin beds were about 1 inch thick.
The mattresses need to be replaced. We have written notes about this in the past.
It is walking distance to the beach.
All 12 of us felt comfortable and the mother-in-law suite was great addition.
