My wife and I purchased our studio as a retirement destination, 15 years ago. I am 64 and she is not far behind me. We still live in the northeast for the majority of the year, sharing time between the Adirondacks, the Jersey shore and our beach front getaway to the sun.
Ken and Pat Wignall purchased this studio in 2001
You can sit out on one of the two furnished ocean decks, taking in the sun, sounds and activities of the Atlantic Ocean. Bird watching right on the decks is entertainment. Sea turtles nest in our beach dunes and grasses. We have about 4 miles of private Johns Island owners beach to hike, swim or fish from.
Beautiful clean beach. Nice sand to walk barefoot on.
The entire community is a wonderful lifestyle.
We have public golf, tennis, touring walking trails, gardens, bird watching and hiking just north of us at Pelican Island, a national wildlife refuge, McKee Botanical Gardens and live theatre just a few minutes drive, either up or down Hwy. A1A on our barrier island.
The condo was extremely comfortable and very clean. It's location was perfect to enjoy John's Island and Vero Beach. The grounds were immaculate and the proximity to an incredible pool area and gorgeous beach was ideal. My wife and I spent 3 nights at this location and plan on staying here again when we return to the area. The initial check in procedure was simple and the owners communicated with us on a prompt basis. We highly recommend this studio apartment and look forward to coming back!
Johns Island is like heaven...This manicured property is green and lush and has wonderful acess to pools and the ocean if you are not handicapped, It is just not a great unit for anyone handicapped, as it is in a hallway, without views to anything but a lawn and no doors to the outside. It is not handicapped accessible in the bathroom and a bit too small for wheelchair mobility. It has no refrigerator or stove, only a heater top which makes preparing nutritious meals difficult. All in all, perfect for one person looking for quiet solitude with good views.
As I said above, the apartment was what we'd expected. Great location, 50 yards from the best beach in Florida. It was well maintained and supplied. "Kitchen" supplies were adequate but work space is limited. A channel guide for the TV would have been helpful, I had to "create" one myself. Not a huge deal. I did however feel the the furniture was too big for the space. The bed was fine but the sofa, chair and ottoman were just too big and took up too much space. Not a deal breaker but smaller furniture might allow for more usable space. We were there for two weeks and had to pretty much live out of our suitcases. A chest of drawers or two in the closet area instead of what's there would be a nice add. The owner was responsive to any questions or concerns we had and did respond in a timely fashion. The check in/out procedure was smooth. I can't remember if we had a "welcome to" guide when we entered the apartment , but that would be helpful, ie there is a laundry and its location, some area restaurant suggestions, local attractions, etc. Not a problem for us as we had lived there before but for new folks it would help. There should be a vacuum in the room, necessary especially after a couple of beach days. Would we come back? Yes! It's John's Island!
We just needed a place to stay while in Vero Beach with our family, all of whom had other accommodations in the area for the week. It was perfect for what our requirements were to be close to John's Island where we spent Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. The proximity to the beach and pools was ideal. The only drawback was no outdoor access other than the door to the hallway.
Initial access to the property took a little time, since it appeared security did not have the current information (it seemed like this was more a security issue than the homeowner). Once security found the information, everything was okay. The deadbolt electronic lock was wonderful since we didn't have to worry about, and fumble for, a key for entry. Since the studio was very close to the beach club, there were some noise issues with large parties being held, but I think this was more a function of the holiday weekend. It would not deter me from renting again.
All questions to the owner, prior to and during the stay, were handled promptly. We experienced no problems with the studio at all during our stay. I would highly recommend the property.
