About Ashley Hanser

My parents and my in-laws have places in John's Island and we were married there in 2005. We live in Florida but vacation in John's Island every opportunity throughout the year with our 3 children ages 4, 6 & 8.

Ashley Hanser purchased this condo in 2004

Why Ashley Hanser chose Johns Island

John’s Island Club is a private, member-owned and members only club located in the John’s Island community in Vero Beach, Florida. The club is nestled between three miles of sandy beaches along the Atlantic Ocean and the Indian River Lagoon.

Please be advised that Vero Beach and John's Island have spotty cell and Internet reception, especially within the thick, concrete buildings.

What makes this condo unique

This property offers you the security of a private, gated community and access to the condo's private pool and private beach. If you're looking for a true beach get-away, where you can walk the exclusive 3-mile beach and listen to the surf as you sleep, this is the spot for you! The club house and other amenities are for members only but this condo offers you access to the beach and to the Island House pool.

Very Unprofessional Owners with many outdated items listed on description

  • 2 of 5

They said in description they had a crib. They didn’t so I had to rent a crib for $150.

They had the wrong unit number listed online, so I was held up at security trying to figure out what unit I was in because I was not able to get in touch with owner.

The owner texted and asked me if she could show the unit to potential buyers- I denied her this via text, but she still tried to get people to come in anyway.

A man (didn’t knock) unlocked the apartment and came in when I was there alone with my baby. When he saw me he closed door and ran. I chased him out and he mentioned he was a realtor coming to show the unit (which I had denied the owner). This is terrifying because I have an 8month old baby and had no idea who this was and could have been in a very vulnerable position.

Bunk Beds are in Closet, the pictures make them seem like they are large in another room.

Unit was nice enough, but not worth the hassle dealing with the owners.

Owner's Response: Dear Teresa, I’m sorry you were not happy with your stay at my mother’s condo. The unit number is correctly listed online but you gave them my name (which is a different condo) and not the number of the condo listed on VRBO and the rental agreements. There was a misunderstanding that our unit could be shown so I’m sorry for any inconvenience. Best, Ashley

Great location next to Ocean

  • 3 of 5

The apartment is open and spacious and tastefully furnished but it smells musty.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review Sonali and thank you for letting us know your thoughts. Sometimes that can happen in the summer when the humidifier is not set correctly. Our caretaker has reset it and bleached all the floors and surfaces to make sure the conditions are right. Thank you, Ashley

Wonderful vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was very pretty and comfortable with a lovely patio only a few steps from a gorgeous private beach! I enjoyed my stay and had everything I needed at my fingertips! The only addition that I might suggest is a sofa or loveseat in addition to the chairs which were very comfortable! Johns Island is a beautiful and relaxing vacation spot and the owners were very helpful! I would definitely rent this beautiful condo again! Thank you Ashley!

Nice, but HomeAway description of location of unit is deceptive

  • 4 of 5

Overall our stay was very nice. The beach is nice and very private. My only concern was that we were led to believe that the unit that we were renting was oceanfront, as indicated by the photo from this property's profile. The BUILDING is oceanfront. The unit is not. It faces a hedge that separates this building from the John's Island Club

Close, but no cigar!

  • 2 of 5

Surprised and disappointed! The condo is NOT oceanfront...the building which houses many condos is oceanfront. Inasmuch there are bunk beds, they have taken the "closet" place to hang directions on how to use the safe, many remotes not labeled and wifi virtually doesn't exist!! The bed was made up with a too small top sheet instead of a fitted sheet on the mattress.....very uncomfortable and annoying and the front door has to be slammed, with enough noise to wake the dead, just to close it. We also had to clean the toilet seat, sand on the floor........the space as we found it, does not justify the price!!

Owner's Response: Dear Dianne, We're disappointed and surprised to receive your review. You dialog with us during your stay was only positive thanking us for adding on an additional day to your stay and for bringing you beach chairs. The listing and the rental agreement both state our condo building (not the condo) are ocean-facing. The description includes the condo faces the north directly toward the Beach Club so we're sorry if this was not your expectation. Wi-Fi is sometimes spotty due to the think concrete walls and this is also included in our building description. I have notified our cleaners of your dissatisfaction. We have not received a negative review so we'll make sure these complaints are addressed. Ashley

John's Island is a private, luxury ocean front and golf community just north of Vero Beach in Indian River Shores. This newly furnished studio apartment is located on the ground level of The Island House, situated just next door to the John's Island Beach Club. This condo building is directly ocean-facing and steps to the beach and you'll have access to a gorgeous swimming pool in our lush, tropical courtyard and the beach steps from your door.
