Sapelo Island is a barrier island off the coast of Georgia about 45 minutes south of Savannah. The island is the size of Manhattan but has a population of 70 not 4 million people like Manhattan.

Sapelo island is accessible only by state ferry or private boat.

Some say Sapelo has the longest undeveloped beach line on the east coast. The Island is home to the University of Georgia Marine institute, R J Reynolds Mansion , Sapelo Island National Estuarine Research Reserve, The Great Indian Shell Ring, and the Geechee community of Hogg Hammock.

We also manage a cottage on the mainland. The VRBO listing #194368, The Captains's Cottage, is close to Sapelo and offers luxury and a beautiful setting.

This is a Sapelo Island Birdhouse Managed Property which means luxury and quality in a pristine setting.

Not as luxurious as we had hoped

  • 2 of 5

The cottage has been renovated but I wouldn’t call it luxurious. The bar stools need to be replaced as the faux leather is coming off. The floors sound like there is sand underneath them as they crunch when you walk over them. The suite is much smaller than anticipated and the area around the building has not been kept up well. It is very trashy with debris. Maggots are lining the inside of the trash can outside, as the trash hasn’t been emptied in a while. The golf carts don’t work well at night as the lights are loose and point up. Response from the owner and manager were slow. We tried contacting the manager a few times during our trip and never heard back. She did check in with us the night before we left and said she had received our messages. The island is a great place to visit to get away from everything but I would choose a different location. Be ready for solitude. If that’s what you want this is the place for you.

Cozy Cabin on Sapelo Island

  • 5 of 5

This is a truly lovely place to stay. It was exactly the right size for two ladies and a young girl. The kitchen was well stocked with cooking needs. Everyone on the island was extremely helpful even though we weren't staying at the height of the season. Overall a relaxing way to spend a few days after Christmas.

Cozy cottage, felt clean, had everything we needed.

  • 4 of 5

We loved the cottage! It felt clean and was comfortable. The golf cart was a blast to have (and very necessary), we loved that the cottage came with beach chairs and umbrellas, that really was a game changer. The only negative thing I have to say is the bath water smelled like rotten eggs, which was very nasty. But over all it was a great visit to Sapelo Island!

Just what we needed!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great weekend trip for our family. Our contact for the property was fantastic to deal with. She picked us up at the pier as scheduled, showed us around the property, and brought us great meals (highly recommended.) Though I think we had the slowest golf-cart on the island, which led to some serious golf-cart envy, it was a very fun way to explore the area.

The beach was amazing. A number of times, we were the only people on the entire beach. Our kids were able to see lots of deer, alligators and an owl. On the beach one night, we were able to watch a turtle emerge from a nest and witness the Milky Way in all it's wonderful glory.

We will definitely go back!

Very Peaceful.

  • 5 of 5

Golf cart was great to ride to the beach. The beach was peaceful every day. Only a handful of people ever around. No one loud, just ocean and breeze. Went to the beach one night and saw a baby loggerhead turtle and some kind of biolumnescent plant? animal? in the water and on the shore. It was really cool. Didn't have any major bug problems and the accommodations were nice. Beach chairs and umbrella were provided which was nice as well. Great time here.

Such a cool place

  • 5 of 5

my wife and I want to do something a little bit different, so we went to Sapelo Island and stayed in this charming cottage. we felt as though we had the whole island to ourselves as we explored every corner, went fishing and crabbing, and ate some really good food. We had a golf cart to drive around on which was a lot of fun. I had a minor emergency and forgot my meds so Doc Bill and Annita took us to the pharmacy in Darien, and we had the pleasure of having lunch with them as well. They are very hospitable and the place is very cozy. Francine even loaned us a couple of crab traps so we could catch some crabs. Awesome!

Sapelo Island is a pristine barrier island about the size of Manhattan with 70 people living on it. Abundant wildlife and few people make this a very special place.

The Georgia Marine Inst. and the Sapelo Island National Estuarine Research Reserve are great places to visit and learn about marine life.

The Reynolds Mansion on Sapelo Island is a great trip back into the era of the great millionaires.

An old indian shell city dating back to the Great Pyramids of Egypt can be seen.

The Geechee village of Hog Hammock is your base and where the adventure begins.

One of the oldest general stores in Georgia is your home and also a museum.

Many miles of unspoiled beaches and miles of pristine maritime forrest are waiting to be discovered.

Rent a golf car or bike and see parts of the island. Get a private tour and see the north end of the island.
