The many grand old homes in Jekyll's
historic village tell us that in the late 1800's the
millionaires; Rockefellers, Goulds, Morgans and others found
Jekyll Island an attractive spot to invest in real estate.
Jekyll's drawing card at the time was peaceful seclusion in
a pristine atmosphere with a great climate.|
Today, folks are still buying Jekyll Island property for the
same reasons. More than ever the tranquility of Jekyll
Island stands out as an example of how less can be more. Our
586 residential properties number the same today as did in
1975. Restrictions on developing no more than 35% of
Jekyll's high land have ensured that the atmosphere you buy
today will still be here tomorrow.
Most Jekyll Island properties are single family homes with a
smattering of duplexes and a few other multi-family
dwellings. We also have one hotel/condominium complex at the
north end of the island. Many Jekyll property owners have
purchased with retirement in mind. Some already call Jekyll
their permanent home while others have purchased second
homes looking to a future move. These properties have rental
potential that can help to defray the cost of ownership.
