Jekyll Seaview Cottage continues to get great feedback from guests, including many stating that Seaview is their favorite home rented on Jekyll Island.
Jekyll Seaview is family owned, who came to know Jekyll in need of rest from a Disney vacation. Our family fell in love with the Island as our regular vacation destination. Jekyll Seaview has now become that special vacation place for guests, friends, and family. We are sure you will enjoy Jekyll Seaview Cottage and Jekyll Island as much as we do. We look forward to having you!
Jekyll Island comes closest to an 'Island' experience still being part of the continental US. Jekyll Island is a totally restful, family-friendly Island and vacation destination for those wanting to relax, enjoy nature and the ocean on an Island right here in the US (no ferry necessary). Only 35% of the Island is built on, as part of a Georgia state mandate for the Island, while 65% of the Island remains nature-like. Over 20+ miles of bike paths are available, with paths in a maritime forest, the National Historic District and simply riding bikes on the beach. Bike rentals are available. This is one of the rare islands in the US where pets are welcome, including on beaches.
4 Island golf courses are a short drive, less than 2 miles and only minutes away by car. All courses are unobtrusive by residential or commercial development. The challenges of Jekyll’s 63 holes on four courses are matched by the sheer beauty of the location, set in a coastal environment of warm breezes and sunshine. These courses offer spectacular scenery, not only a challenging game, but also a striking setting for play.
And Driftwood Beach, only 1 mile north, is recognized as one of America’s Most Romantic Beaches by Travelocity.
Jekyll Island's Historic District is home of the Jekyll Island Club. It became what Munsey’s Magazine called “the richest, most inaccessible club in the world'. Club members included John D. Rockefeller, J.P. Morgan, Joseph Pulitzer, William K. Vanderbilt, and Marshall Field, among others. In 1972, the Jekyll Island Club was designated as historic by being placed on the National Register of Historic Places. The 240-acre site and 33 historic structures is now part of the National Historic Landmark program, one of the largest, ongoing restoration projects in the southeastern United States, receiving numerous awards and recognitions.
Rentals are coordinated by on-island agent Parker-Kaufman which is available for linen rentals and emergency services 24 hours. Your satisfaction and enjoyment of Jekyll is our goal.

Year Purchased: 2011
About: Twenty+ years ago we stopped at Jekyll on our way home from a very tiring week at Disneyworld. It was love at first sight. Since then, Jekyll has become our home away from home and we have visited often, now acquiring the Seaview residence. As you know, Jekyll Island is a totally restful, family-friendly Island and vacation destination for those wanting to relax, enjoy nature and the ocean on an Island right here in the U.S. (no ferry necessary). Having grown up in New Jersey and New York Long Island areas, we loved going to the beaches at the Jersey shore and Long Island. We never missed the crowds, however, that went with the beaches. Jekyll Island is different - with its 35% of building on, and the remaining 65% nature, the Island is never really crowded. We cannot remember a time there was ever traffic on the Island, even to this day. This is rare and we think Jekyll will continue to be one of the few Islands in the continental US that is never over-crowded, and relaxing with that genuine Southern hospitality. Whenever we cross the bridge onto Jekyll, we I can feel the blood pressure dropping 20 points know that we are 'home'. We hope that you make Jekyll Seaview your home away from home, as we have.
Why Jekyll Island, GA, USA:
Our property is only the 3rd house from the water and an easy walk to beach access. We bought the property because of its open floor plan, bright rooms, all on one level, ranch style, with easy access throughout the house. The flow of the house is great with easy access to the galley kitchen, bathrooms, and bedrooms. The Jekyll (Sun) Room, with its floor to ceiling windows, lets the light in anytime and has become the main gathering area in the house. The patio just outside the Jekyll Room is a great way to start the day with a cup of coffee or tea listening to the waves, or simply watching the stars at night. There is almost no light pollution on Jekyll Island, far enough away from the major shopping centers, while only a 20-30 minute drive away. When we purchased the property in 2011, we kept the policy as pet friendly year round as was previously. We have pets ourselves and know they are our extended family and appreciate when we can bring them with us. We know how important your pets are to you as our guest and welcome families with pets. We simply ask that guests help keep the house clean while pets are on the property and treat the house as their own. We are proud of the house as well maintained and clean for new guests when they arrive.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
What made us fall in love with our home was its close proximity to the beach, its full porch and patio area, plenty of room for multiple cars, its bright and airy 'feel' throughout the house, and beach theme and signs throughout the house. We love the vaulted ceilings in the living room and Jekyll room, and there is plenty of seating and tables for smaller groups to 'get together' and co-mingle in areas like the living room, the dining area, the Jekyll room sitting area with TV, breakfast nook area, and Jekyll room dining area. The outdoor shower is also a nice touch when coming back from the beach and getting the sand off your toes. The house and the Island says ‘relax’ wherever you are. We fell in love with Jekyll Island because of its laid back and relaxing demeanor, no traffic lights, and uncrowded nature of the Island. There are few places left in the U.S. you can call relaxing while being on vacation without much traffic, and Jekyll Island is one of those special places.
