Bess's Great Escape
6 Porter Lane

A wonderful 4 bedroom, 3 bath home with spacious rooms that is the 2nd house from the beach.
Linens (sheets and towels) are NOT provided with this unit. You can either bring your own or rent them through our management office. The linen rental should be requested two weeks before arrival, when you pay your balance.

Accommodates 8.


Please note there is limited beach access on the northeast half of the island due to contracted work by the Jekyll Island Authority on the rock revetment that protects many of the houses along the beach as well as our shoreline. Also, because of the work and destruction from hurricanes Michael and Irma, all private beach walk-overs have been removed. As a result, beach access may be limited or nonexistent on the north end of Jekyll.

Beach access is available at Driftwood Beach, Great Dunes Park, the new Ocean View Park near the Holiday Inn, the new Corsair Park next to the Jekyll Club Ocean Suites Hotel, as well as the various parks on the south end of the island. The Great Dunes and Ocean View Parks are handicap accessible. Those who like to stay the day at the beach may also try the beach access at the soccer complex on the south end.

As part of the work on the rock wall, ALL of the beach streets on the northeast half of the island will have beach crossovers when the work is completed. Official updates regarding shoreline access are available from the Jekyll Island Authority at
