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 stroll to the beach was an adventure for the kids every time we made it,...

Management response:

Reviews like yours keep us renting our home. We love hearing that another family made such precious memories at Sandpiper. Wishing you continued happy travels, with perhaps another visit to Jekyll in the future.

The home was stocked with plenty of towels for baths. The kitchen was recently remodeled with granite counter tops. We all had seperate bedrooms,which was amazing to a find...

Management response:

We rented this house at spring break to visit with our family who live on Jekyll and to accommodate 3 families - 6 adults and 6 kids. The layout and bedrooms were perfect for us and everyone was very happy with their rooms. The large living room was ideal for reading, lounging, visiting and watching tv (briefly in the mornings...

So glad you enjoyed your stay with us. We look forward to housing you again.

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.
