Sandpiper - Beach Is Just A Stroll Over The Dunes

Holiday Rental House -
6 Bedrooms , 5 Bathrooms , Sleeps 20
Jekyll Island, Golden Isles of Georgia, Georgia
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.

A newly renovated, split-level home, Sandpiper's six bedrooms can sleep 20 people with its 2 kings, 3 queens, 1 trundle, and 2 bunk beds with roll-out trundles. A futon in one of the common rooms can accommodate two people. Converse, play games, or watch...

Sandpiper was a key part in our amazing Jekyll Island/Cumberland Island trip. We stayed for a week and every one of our 17 family members left wishing we didn't have to. Sandpiper was even better than the pictures and surpassed our every expectation. The short...More

Sounds like fun! We are happy to tell you that this fall we will be upgrading Sandpiper. Out outdoor spaces will greatly increase! Hopefully you will rent with us again and enjoy our changes as well as more of the island.

About the neighbourhood
The main road around the island is Beachview (on our side of the island) and Riverview (on the other side.) A series of streets called 'the lanes' extend eastward off of Beachview. They are T-shaped, with houses on top of the T fronting the beach. With a house in the lanes, you don't have to cross Beachview to get to the beach. The lanes are not through streets and are very quiet.

Sandpiper is the second house from the beach, on the left corner near the top of the T. The path to the beach is a public right-of-way and can be thought of as an extension to the leg of the T.
Getting around
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 houses to get there. All the lanes are low traffic and everyone simply rides their bikes on the street to get to the main path.
