The Space"Ocean Retreat" is a beautifully decorated cottage with four bedrooms, three and a half baths, a large living room with cathedral ceiling, fireplace, and wide-screen TV, a sun room, a fully-equipped kitchen and dining room, sun-decks with ocean views, and a double garage. It's the second house from the beach (about 50 yards away) BEDS: one king, two queen, trundle bed (king or two singles), bunk bed, and two sofa beds. Accommodates as many as fourteen. Note however that four of the fourteen berths share the "crews quarters" with the washer and dryer, and may be a bit crowded if all four beds are occupied. Good place to park the children! Amenities include a microwave and dishwasher, washer and dryer, six cable TVs, five VCRs, DVD, WiFi, unlimited domestic long distance calling, and heated pool privileges (at the Days Inn). NO PETS, NO SMOKING. Available year-round for weekly rentals (with discounts for two weeks or more). Daily rentals (minimum of three days) may be available in low season months, and possibly during high season (on late bookings). Weekly rental rates range from $1900 (low season) to $2600 (high season), taxes included. During high season (March, April, May, June, July, and most of August) rentals are on a weekly basis only, from Saturday night through Friday night, except when vacancies exist on short notice. "Ocean Retreat" is a "housekeeping cottage," meaning that you will need to supply your own linens or rent them. If you choose to rent linens, we will supply you with the website of the linen rental company that services our cottage. You will also need to supply your own paper products (toilet tissue, paper towels, etc), detergents, soaps, and toiletries. "Ocean Retreat" is ideal for family gatherings, girl getaways, corporate retreats, romance, rest, and good times. Jekyll Island is a state park with a National Historic District (the Jekyll Island Club and cottages of the rich and famous), fantastic beaches, first-rate golf courses (three and a half of them), tennis, bike paths, a water park (in season), a nature center with guided kayaking tours, guided and do-it-yourself nature walks, the Georgia Sea Turtle Center, dolphin cruises, fishing (there's a fishing pier and many charter boats), horse-back riding (on Driftwood Beach), bird-watching, and great restaurants. It is remarkable for the blessed absence of McDonald's, Burger King, Wendy’s, Kmart, Walmart, and other such travesties. With two-thirds of the island is in its natural state (by State mandate), Jekyll Island is truly a retreat. Our personal favorite day trips from Jekyll Island include Okephenokee Swamp (about one and a half hours away), Cumberland Island National Seashore (accessible by boat only from St. Marys -- about an hour away -- reservations suggested), Savannah (one and a half hours), Brunswick, Saint Simons Island (esp. Fort Frederica), and St. Augustine (about two hours). Orlando is about four hours away. Please Note: The beach opposite "Ocean Retreat" is available only at lower tide -- that is about half the time, more or less, depending upon the phase of the moon. The tide changes at Jekyll Island every five hours and fifty-five minutes. The nearest beach access at high tide is at Dexter Lane, about three-quarters of a mile south of "Ocean Retreat" -- a 15 minute walk. Guest AccessGuests have access to every part of the house except the attic, two hall closets, and one garage storage bin. Interaction with GuestsWe are absentee landlords (residing in New Jersey and Virginia). We rely upon our agent (Jekyll Realty) to fulfill our guest's needs. The NeighborhoodOcean Retreat is in a quiet corner of a remote Island, where the only sounds you will hear for the most part are the waves a-breaking on the beach and the birds a-chirping. Nevertheless, there are first-class restaurants a within minutes of the house, and most everything else you will need in a tiny shopping center about two miles south of the house. Other Things to NoteVisitors to Jekyll Island (a state park) will need to buy a parking pass. The daily pass ($6) is good for multiple entries over a 24 hour period. This should be the only pass you will need if you do not plan to leave the island much on other days of your visit. You can also buy a weekly pass ($28), which is valid for seven consecutive days, or an annual pass ($58). NOTE: you should buy a weekly pass ONLY if you are certain that you will be leaving and coming back onto the island on more than four different days. The "parking pass" is more properly an entrance fee -- you can stay on the Island as long as you want for your $6 daily ticket, unless you leave and re-enter the island after its expiration.

    We invite you to visit "ALOFT." We're located in a state park, and only 35% of Jekyll Island can be developed. Our property is situated on a quiet street, nestled between the marshlands and stately oak and pine forests. This beautiful 1000 square foot loft has a private entrance and on-site parking. The interior was renovated in 2009 but retained an open floor plan with hardwood floors and a cantina style design. The comfortable queen bed and light, airy but rustic setting creates a splendid isolation get-away for 1 or 2. A 50% deposit is required for all stays and the balance is due 14 days prior to arrival. Deposit is non-refundable but may be used to change/reserve dates (pending availability) for up to one year after the original reservation date. Reservations less than 14 days prior to arrival require payment in full. 2 day minimum stay required for weekends. One day stays during the week will generate a cleaning fee of $50. A $50 cleaning fee may be added for parties larger than 2 guests. Please contact the owner with questions. If planning a mutli-month stay, contact the owners for the multi-month rate. Stays over 30 days are considered a "long term" rental and will result in a tax rate of 2% A $50 cleaning fee may be added for parties larger than 2 guests. Please contact the owner with questions. Additional fees may apply: - Short term Sales and Lodging Tax | 13% of rent | This S&L; tax is charged for stays of less that 30 days. - Long term Lodging Tax | 2% of rent "ALOFT" is located in a state park, and only 35% of Jekyll Island can be developed. We are surrounded by marshlands and the sea. Our property is situated on a quiet street, nestled between the marshlands and stately oak and pine forests. Just one minute away you'll discover the 18 miles of bike trails surrounding the island. You can bike to the fishing pier and beach and arrive in five minutes. Or, you may want to visit the Historic District, where over 300 millionaires once lived. They built homes and a Club House on our island, beginning in 1888. They typically spent 3-5 months down here yearly for the next 54 years. Their homes are being restored and many can be visited and appreciated. We also have a world renowned Sea Turtle Center, where injured and sick turtles are flown in for surgeries and rehabilitation, and later released back to the sea. Bike toward the south and visit the Tidelands Nature Center, enjoy bird and wildlife viewing, or swim and sunbath on our 12 miles of white sand beaches. We have a seasonal Summer Waves Water Park, four famous golf courses, Red-bug Motorcar rentals, and carriage rides and trolley tours. Also, for the adventurous, scout out the hideaways of our local alligators! All this and so much more!

      From Sandpiper, with its 17 live oak trees, it's only a 100 yard stroll over the dunes to the beach. Jekyll's beach is frequently quiet and uncrowded. See pelicans, sandpipers, and other shorebirds, catch a glimpse of a passing dolphin, or search tidal pools for shells. Further north along the shore, Driftwood Beach is dotted with hauntingly beautiful live oaks and pines that the Atlantic has eroded and toppled onto their sides. Grab a sand bucket, noodle, or beach chairs from the house to take with you. There's an outside shower if you want to rinse off when you return. Sandpiper's six bedrooms can comfortably sleep 13 people with its 2 king, 1 queen, 2 double, and 3 twin beds. A futon in one of the common rooms can accommodate two more people. Converse, play games, or watch cable TV in either of the two common rooms, the larger of which has a vaulted ceiling, fireplace, slate floors. Sit and relax, read, or listen to the ocean on the balcony off the large common room, or eat on the screened-in porch. If you like to bike, you can enjoy a ride using one of seven bikes found in the garage. One of Jekyll's miles of bike paths is just down the street. See stately live oaks, draped with Spanish moss, pedal along the beach, or ride through a marsh. Some other popular recreational opportunities include three 18-hole golf courses, miniature golf, walking, swimming, horseback riding, a tennis center, a water park, boating, fishing and crabbing. The Historic District, with its shopping and restored homes of the tycoons that founded the Jekyll Island Club, the Georgia Sea Turtle Center, and Tidelands Nature Center provide some less physically challenging entertainment. Sandpiper amenities include a full, updated kitchen with granite counter tops, linens, wireless internet, local phone service, 3 cable TV's, and DVD. The main road that goes around the island is called Beachview (on our side of the island and Riverview on the other side.) There are a series of streets called "the lanes", that extend eastward off of Beachview. The lanes are T shaped, with houses on top of the T being called beachfront. It is best to get a house that is in the lanes, so you don't have to cross Beachview and walk down one of the lanes to get to the beach. The lanes are not through streets and are very quite. Sandpiper is the second house from the beach, we are on the left corner near the top of the T. The path to the beach is on a strip of land, which is public property, and can be thought of as an extension to the leg of the T. You do walk across part of Nelson Lane to get to this path from our house, but it is a very short walk. I love Nelson Lane's beach path as it feels like you walk through a tunnel (under the trees) and then pop out at the top of beach. The path is mostly sand and toward the end there is a clear path over a sand dune (and under the oaks), but there is a gentle slope. There are five or six steps down to the beach. These steps have been made by positioning stone with the addition of concrete, so they are of uneven height. The bike path is right next to Beachview Dr., so you turn right out of the house and pass three or four houses to get there. All the lanes are low traffic and everyone simply rides their bike on the street to get to the main path.

You may hear the garage door open and close at 6:30 or so in the morning during the days of Monday through Friday as that is the time that we go to work. That has not bothered most of our guests, but we don't want that to be a surprise. Otherwise the unit is very quiet.
