Sandpiper Front View

Just Steps from the Beach

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.

Sandpiper is a newly renovated, split-level home with six bedrooms that 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 cable TV in either of the two common rooms. Our 65-inch television is great for sports, movies and shows which you can view in High Definition. The upper common room has a vaulted ceiling, slate floors and an adjoining balcony. Sit and relax, read, or listen to the ocean on the balcony or eat on the screened-in porch.

Family Room

Plenty of Space to Relax

Our screened-in porch brings the outside indoors. You are surrounded by our oak trees, with a 99-inch fan overhead to keep things cool. The vaulted ceiling is finished in a wood stained earth-tone that gives the room a warm comfortable feeling. Grab a bite to eat and dine at the patio table, read a book while sitting in a comfy chair or play a game on the over-sized coffee table. Perhaps you will enjoy a thunderstorm, while conversing with friends before the sun comes out for another stroll on the beach.

*A note about beach access: Jekyll Island Authority (JIA) renovated the rock barrier that runs between the dunes and our beach. They plan to build wooden crossovers over the new rocks for beach access. Although we expect our crossover to be in place some time during 2019, there is not yet a published schedule. In the meanwhile, the existing crossovers a block north of us and a block south of us provide easy access.
