Thank you for considering Retreat on Jekyll, #208 at Villas By The Sea. This villa is perfect for couples, small families, and solo adventurers.

Retreat is decorated in an informal ocean and lighthouse decor. The owner is a lifelong visitor to Jekyll and an author who focuses on educating about the natural wonders, history, and adventures that Jekyll offers. The decor reflects her love of nature and the island.

Beautiful live oak trees surround our building in both front and back.

Retreat is conveniently located approximately 150 yards from the beautiful Driftwood Beach and across the road from Horton Pond, a natural habitat that's perfect for bird watching and seeing other wildlife.

Villas features an onsite, solar-heated pool with a children's play area. The gym and children's playground with its signature pirate ship are just outside our back door. It's just a short walk, about 100 yards, to dining at the Driftwood Bistro, our very popular on-site restaurant.

Retreat's entrance is ground floor and handicap parking is very close by. Usually you're able to park right in front of the building. Our bedroom has a queen-sized bed along with a full-size hide-a-bed in the couch.

Our bathroom includes a large step-in shower with a seat inside to make life easier for those who need to sit while bathing. The full-sized kitchen includes coffee maker, stove top, microwave oven, refrigerator with freezer, electric can opener, and coffee maker. Ice machines are located throughout the property. A large dining room table, two flat screened TVs, and a small reading library are included as well. The library includes books for children.

Retreat's sliding glass back door has light blocking curtains. It opens up to a small covered patio and continues out to the pirate themed playground.

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
