About the property

Studio Apartment, Full Kitchen, Patio Facing the Ocean!

John's Island is a private, luxury ocean front and golf community just north of Vero Beach in Indian River Shores. This unit has just finished a total remodel in summer 2015 with an all new FULL kitchen, new shower, a wall unit for desk and storage, and all new furnishings and luxury linens. The studio apartment is located ocean front on the ground floor of The Island House, situated just next door to the John's Island Beach Club. You are steps from a beautiful beach, plus you'll enjoy a gorgeous swimming pool in our lush, tropical courtyard.

The studio apartment is freshly decorated in a beach decor, including a new, firm mattress on the queen sized bed. Enjoy both luxury accommodations and furnishings!

You'll especially enjoy using the extra large patio facing the ocean. Listen to the ocean day and night! Plenty of space on the patio for both relaxing in the ocean breeze or dining alfresco!

The new full kitchen has a full refrigerator with ice maker, tons of counter space and storage, a very large sink and disposal, a new range with 4 burner flat cooktop and oven, a microwave, toaster oven, coffee maker, all new tableware from Crate and Barrel, new linens and all of the kitchen equipment you'll need.

What are the best things about this studio apartment?

The location, the furnishings, the views, the community and the views!

When will you want to use this studio apartment?

It is perfect for a long weekend, a romantic getaway, a special occasion, or a full week's stay on the ocean in a magical setting. PARADISE.

What will you do when not enjoying the beach, the pool, the relaxing interior and balcony?

Vero Beach has been voted one of the best small towns in America. Maybe it's because of the arts, the dining, the setting, the fabulous shopping. Vero is a slice of heaven on earth.

About Rebecca Willson

I live in Atlanta, but love coming to Vero Beach in all seasons of the year! Once you discover Vero, you'll know why it's rather addictive. Shhh, but keep it a secret, please.

Rebecca Willson purchased this apartment in 2015

Why Rebecca Willson chose Indian River Shores

My parents lived at John's Island in the winter months for 31 years, so I fell in love with the area and with John's Island a long time ago. Once you visit, you'll understand.

What makes this apartment unique

I've visited most every ocean front community on the east coast from Charleston, SC to Palm Beach and nothing compares to Vero and nothing in Vero compares to John's Island!

Great studio on the beach

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful place with a full kitchen, large bath, wi-fi, cable tv, closets, and a large patio overlooking the ocean. It's just steps to the beach. Didn't want to leave this place; it was a lovely little home in a terrific location with everything that you need from kitchen, towels, bedding, electronics and the ocean at your doorstep.

Peaceful getaway

  • 5 of 5

Exactly what we needed! This clean, well thought out unit is simply amazing and is complimented with a peaceful private beach. Owner was very helpful from start to finish and has furnished the unit with all the essentials. Our favorite part of the trip was easy access from the unit to the uncrowded beach. Highly recommend this unit if you're looking for awesome ocean views and some peace and quiet.

Best unit in the Island House!

  • 5 of 5

After renting the owner's previous unit on the 2nd floor in the Island House, I wanted to try her new one on the ground floor directly facing the ocean. Wow, wow is all I can say! She has remodeled this unit from top to bottom in the same shades of blue with very comfortable furniture and a new bed. Great mattress! The full kitchen is a game changer for this building which makes a longer stay enjoyable. Most units have tiny kitchenettes, but this unit has a full kitchen with everything you need, including a disposal. The large patio facing the ocean is perfect for sitting, dining and you can hear the ocean from inside the unit. Perfect sleep. Brand new smart TV with expanded cable and great picture. I would live in this unit if I could. It is perfect for a couple or a couple with a small child. Owner is nicest, most responsive person I've ever dealt with. Cannot wait to return again soon.

Glad we visited but would not go back.

The condo:Very nicely decorated and located small studio condo. Steps from the ocean and a nice pool. On the downside it has no dishwasher and you can not receive phone calls in the unit if you use Verizon for your cell. John's Island: A beautiful, exclusive residential community that has an offensive caste system divided into renters, guests, owners, and members. As a renter, you are at the bottom and not allowed to access the fitness center, tennis courts, golf course, or ocean club unless you can obtain three references from current owners.......seriously!

Owner's Response: Dan, It is difficult to write a response to your comments as you were aware that John's Island is a private club and club facilities would not be available without a temporary membership. I am happy that you did enjoy our private pool and access to the beautiful beach only steps from the patio. There are two phones in the unit which offer free calling all over the USA because cell service on the island is challenging. Indian River Shores township is planning to add a cell tower on A1A so hopefully this will improve the cell service. Thanks for your kind comments about the decor and comfort of the unit!

Was not disappointed!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I were looking for a location to relax after a week long conference and ran across Rebecca's rental on Jones Island on VRBO. Perfect for the two of us. Right on the beach. Private pool located in the buildings courtyard. Excellent security. Buildings and Grounds very well maintained. Would highly recommend this rental.
