We had our wedding on Driftwood Beach (the package provided by Villas by the Sea) and it worked out beautifully. I was a little concerned when I brought some of my own decorations, but Tammy handled it like a pro. When my friend sent a picture of the setup for my approval, I didn't have to make any changes. We...

My Husband and I wanted a small and private wedding. (elopement Style) So we decided to go to the beach and have a destination wedding. Tammy Young at Villa by the seas made this the easiest and the best decision we could have ever made. From the moment we contacted her she was helpful and accomodating and made the process...

My husband and I actually eloped over the weekend and I must say, I was VERY concerned and stressed out after having read some of the reviews over the past few months, but it was the complete opposite for my experience. The one bedroom villa was very nice with updated decor. There were no bed bugs or roach infestation. I...

My son got married on the beach at the villas. Beautiful beach setting for a wedding. We all stayed here too since it was a destination wedding. A cool place very quiet with beautiful views off our balcony. Our room although was clean, was old. Apparently all the villas are privately owned and managed by the hotel. My sons villa...

The unit we had was owned by an individual so the decor was selected by her. Interesting with her collection of beach like possessions. The woods around the place abound with squirrels and birds - a very natural setting. We could walk to the beach from our unit. Check in was a breeze. We should have eaten at the restaurant...

We first found this property because they are pet friendly and we could stay with our two dogs. That was 10 years ago and we have been returning annually ever since, now with our 4 year old daughter. She loves the kiddie pool, but also the big pool. Staff is attentive and our villa is always clean and prepared. We...

If you want to be near Driftwood Beach on Jekyll Island then this is the only place to stay. We could get out of bed and be there in five minutes for sunrise.
