Jekyll Beach - Terrapin Haven

Bedrooms 3
Property type house
Minimum Stay 4 - 7 nights


About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8) NO PETS

Jekyll Island is state owned, and as such, development of the island is restricted to only 35% of the island creating a very quiet, laid-back atmosphere. If you want to 'get away from it all,' this is the place! The beaches are relatively undisturbed, and summer is a great time to see the huge sea turtles come onto the beach to lay their eggs.

This is a vacation rental that's large enough for the whole clan, yet comfortable for one or two, and it's located in the Jekyll Beach area. The home has lots of living areas, including a sunroom that's perfect for games and entertaining. The dining room table seats six, but if there are only two, just sit at the breakfast bar. Jekyll's newest wooden crossover to the beach is across the street. This house is on the west side of Beachview, and is approximately 100 yards from the beach.

There is a minimum rental of 4 nights required.

Come enjoy the beach!

Why Nancy Fazio chose Coastal

Jekyll Island is a true beach vacation as I remember in the 80's. Jekyll has avoided the busy growth of nearby St. Simons, and as a state park, allows a quiet vacation experience.

What makes this house unique

Love to walk on the quiet beach with lots of areas with no crowds. I enjoy seeing the sea turtles, and even have deer in the yard in the evenings.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Minor complaints, would put TV's with cable/dish in bedroom with twin beds and florida/sun room & need a new grill. Place was clean and comfortable. Great location and enjoyed it a lot. Saw deer run thru the backyard one evening.

Great minds think alike! Glad you enjoyed your stay and hope you'll return. We appreciate our guests recommendations that may improve their comfort and stay. Thanks again for taking the time to post a review.

Lovely home

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for us. Close to the beach (very short walk), in a nice residential neighborhood. Lots of good hiking on the trails in the woods behind us, and of course the usual wonders of Jekyll Island (our third stay here): fishing, beach walking, relaxation. We stayed for a month, and it seemed too short. The house is very well equipped; we lacked for nothing. And though the house is situated on the main road around the island, traffic was never a bother. Jekyll is always quiet. We appreciated the island's new shopping center a couple of miles to the south, and Brunswick and St Simons are easy to get to for more serious grocery shopping. All in all, highly recommended!

The location was perfect for our stay on Jekyll. The beach access was a short walk from the house.

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 (2 adults and 4 children) enjoyed our stay in the house. The bedrooms and living areas were spacious. The children loved playing games and puzzles in the sunroom. The garage was nice for storing our bikes and beach toys. We cooked many meals in the kitchen. The Jekyll Market was nearby and we had a lot of fun exploring the island. We were able to see 3 Loggerhead turtle nests hatch and watch the hatchlings crawl into the ocean. We were so sad to leave and look forward to returning soon.
