Miz Kitty’s Retreat is located at Villas by the Sea on the north end of Jekyll Island and is a wonderfully decorated 1 bedroom ground floor studio (all in one) condo offering a large spacious bedroom with sitting/living area and full dine-in kitchen area. Our building is the second building back from the ocean and only a short walk to the beach and boardwalk.
Please inquire about larger apartment availability.
Jekyll Island is a state park and the island is limited to only 35% development. If you are looking for an over-developed, highly commercialized island, this is not for you. Jekyll is for peaceful walks on the beach, nature viewing, bicycle trails around the entire island, three 18-hole golf courses, one 9-hole course, 13 fast-dry clay tennis courts, Summer Waves Waterpark (seasonal), horseback riding and many other low-key activities and amenities.
Parker-Kaufman Realtors manages our unit and they are located in the Jekyll Shopping Center. All emails, phone calls and reservations are made directly through their office - please see the toll free number below.
During the in-season, we rent on a weekly basis from Saturday to Saturday. During off-season times, we can be more flexible for shorter or extended stays. We also offer 3, 4 & 5 night stays for last minute reservations. Please contact us for short stay rates. A 50% deposit is required for all stays and your balance is due upon arrival. Tax is 11% and there is a one-time $15.00 processing fee. Trip interruption insurance is available.
My wife, granddaughter and I stayed here for a week and loved it. The size was perfect for us. We really enjoyed the short walk to the beach and the pool. There was even a grill right outside to the left. This is a vacation that our granddaughter will remember for awhile. When it is high tide, we would just ride down a few miles and enjoy the beach there, no complaints here, enjoyed being able to walk the beaches and paths.
My husband and I decided to stay on Jekyll for our summer beach trip this year. The condo is very nice and well equipped. Perfect for a couple! The shower was large and nice. The pool area was very convenient as was the beach. Jekyll boasts great golf and tennis, and a neat water park. MANY things to do on the island. The only thing wrong is we didn't always have beach access due to the tide, (which was disclosed prior to renting.) All in all, this was a nice little place and if we decide to go back to Jekyll we would definitely like to stay here again!
I rented this charming ground level villa for a week and it is perfect for a single person or couple. I loved the beach/nautical theme and colors. I enjoyed having my own kitchen to make casual meals & snacks. The little patio outside looked out at the trees and was a great place to enjoy morning coffee. Although not beachfront, the beach is just a short walk away. The Villas by the Sea is a nice property very close to Driftwood Beach, which is beautiful. I also highly recommend the Driftwood Bistro for dinner, which is located on the property. Miz Kitty's Retreat is a delightful and affordable alternative to a hotel, and I would definitely stay there again.
My husband and I rented this room for our honeymoon to Jekyll Island. It was lovely. The bed was big and very comfortable. The kitchen was very easy to cook our small meals in and all the necessary equipment. This unit has anything and everything you need for a vacation for 2!
