We had a great time. The only problem was the construction going on and the lack of beach access. I thought we would have an access point to the beach from the clubhouse. Overall, it was a good trip.
Thank you for your review and for understanding the importance of the beach restoration project. We hope that you will return again in the near future for another great time on Jekyll Island!
Five star cottage!
We just got home from our stay at Ocean Cottage 113. We had driven by these cottages the last time we were in Jekyll and decided to give them a try - I am glad we did!
We travelled with 4 adults and 3 children (5, 3, and 1 year old). The cottage had plenty of room for us all. The pool got busy during the day, but the community was so quiet. We had no problem fitting a Yukon in the one car garage, and that left space for 2 cars outside. Though it did seem like residents with extended / longer vehicles had to park diagonal to prevent the car from sticking out in the street.
The first thing I noticed about the cottage was how clean it was! It is exactly as pictured and all the furnishings are in great shape. There was a restaurant style high chair and appeared to be a pack and play, though we didn't use it. Some of the cooking pans could use a little updating. As another reviewer said, there is literally nothing else there - so bring your own Pam, foil, etc. if you plan on cooking.
The townhouse is oceanfront, but beach access is limited. So it's not a place where you will run out of the condo and into the waves. There is a sandy area you can access between the condo and the rocks that line the shore, but getting in the water will require a short drive to a public beach area.
Overall, we had a great stay and would absolutely stay here again!!
Thank you for your 5 star review. We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay and hope that you will return again soon!
This is a lovely property! Well-appointed furnishings and very comfortable beds. Plenty of room for several people to enjoy their stay. The upper porch was very nice and comfortable. Views were amazing. The only item I would have to mention that was unexpected is that there is no direct access to the beach. Apparently one of the storms took it out and it has not been replaced. I had to go down to the public access to enjoy the beach. Other than that it's a lovely place!
Thank you for your review. We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay. The lack of beach access is in the description of the cottage.and we apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused. We hope you will return again once it has been restored.
not really happy
Not it was anyone's fault but access to the beach is limited to a pretty long journey by foot due to the state of Georgia closing it due to storm damage. You can see from the now posted picture. But also not an herb or spice in the condo, not even a salt or pepper shaker. Was kinda surprised by that. And not a pot holder to be found. Had to use the only kitchen towel I could find. Someone stole them I guess. The stay was only 4 days so I figured there would be something there. I don't regularly give negative write ups but don't think I will go there again.
Thank you for your review. I am sorry that you expected more in the way of spices, etc. Cottages aren't normally set up with a plethora of spices for safety purposes. In regards to the beach access, the boardwalk was removed to allow State of Georgia access for revetment work along our shoreline. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused during your visit and appreciate your understanding the importance of this project.
Great View With A Lot if Noise from 7:30 AM until 3 PM
Unit only had one TV. We saw small bugs on the floors on three occasions. The unit only has two towels per bedroom per week. The island is still trying to make a comeback. Their were tractors and backhoe’s and large dump trucks adding large boulders to the sea wall. They started at 7:30 AM and it sounded like they we coming inside. VERY NOISY!! We chose to eat on St Simons Island two nights. Over all the unit is a pretty good value for the price. However, check on the construction of the sea wall before booking. They chose not to make us aware of it and did not offer a price reduction. Think we will be back at The Grand on St Simons next time.
Thanks for your review. Yes, the Cottage only has a television in the Master Bedroom as described in the cottage description. We were not alerted about the pest issue until this review, but have since taken care of it. There is only one set of towels provided per guest since the cottage has a full size washer and dryer. The State of Georgia is currently doing a revetment project which can be noisy during the day, and we do apologize again for the inconvenience. Being that you stayed with us in the same cottage earlier in the year, we do wish that you would have brought these concerns to our attention prior to your departure. We hope to see you again.

5* Awesome upscale modern beach townhome with great beachfront views
Awesome upscale modern beach townhome with great beachfront views. Used for family vacation with young daughters and had great time. Plenty of room for all. Nice kitchen and laundry. Great beachfront views. Lots of sand dollars and shells on beach. Beware of jellyfish in the water though .... and the ones washed up on beach. Units air wasn’t working properly when arrived but rental manager promptly handled and had great communication. Laid back vibe on the island (less busy and less “stufffy” than st simons and cloister where we stayed prior to this house during the week) and lots of fun things to do. We stayed 3 night and wish we would have stayed a few more days. Pool and clubhouse were great. No hot tub but had ice machine and fridge could use for drinks, as well as bathrooms and workout facility. We’ve been fortunate to travel the world and stay in luxury locations, but places like this are the true hidden gems where you can have a nice family laid back vacation and do so while living in a 5 star rental. We’ll be back and would strongly encourage anyone considering this property to “pull he trigger”! Many thanks to the owners for sharing your townhome with our family!
We are so glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay! We hope to see you again soon!
