One of the best gated communities in the USA. We are located on the barrier island just north of Vero Beach. There are 3 bridges back to the mainland, either a few miles in either direction, north or south. The property is quiet, private and has excellent security. The Atlantic Ocean is our property line to the east. and the inland waterway, running for miles, to the west. You can walk for miles on our private beach in either direction, relax in the furnished, tropical garden courtyard with a heated pool, or take in the sights and sounds of the ocean life, sitting out on either of two furnished Oceanside decks. This a large, exclusive, well maintained property in a great location.

About Kevin and Lisa O'Loughlin
We found this quiet, exclusive hideaway, in a beautiful community, 14 years ago, and use it as a welcome getaway from a busy world. The beach is beautiful, a heated pool, and a great place to relax and take a break.
Kevin and Lisa O'Loughlin purchased this Condo in 2001
Why Kevin and Lisa O'Loughlin chose Johns Island
The location is special, being out on the barrier island. Plenty of activities to take in such as biking, hiking, the beach, surf fishing, sitting out at the ocean deck or in the furnished garden courtyard, and only a few minutes down Hwy. A1A to Vero Beach village on the island, or cross over the bridge to the city of Vero Beach and every convenience at your service.
What makes this Condo unique
Vero Beach is a great community. This small city has an excellent hospital, great restaurants, theatres, shopping malls, churches, botanical gardens, library, parks etc.

NOT GOOD-total disaster
We arrived 11:30 at night and followed the notes given to use by the owners. The Security department did not know when we were arriving and took 30 minutes to get into the unit. Then the worst imagine thing occurred, the place was a total mess and had not been cleaned in awhile as food was left out and mold and fly's were buzzing around, bed not made, and dirty laundry everwhere. In addition, the owners did not respond to any calls or text messages for the 4 different phone numbers they left inside the unit. Thank God we had another unit where our friends had to crash on the floor. 3 weeks later we still have not heard back from the owners about what occurred and any type of remuneration for our trouble for what we had to endure. Most owners would have bent over backwards to make things right, such as fee rent for a few nights, free housecleaning, etc. If you rent this unit, "double check" with he owners before you arrive at the beautiful Johns Island Club. I am giving 1 star only because that is the minimum. :-(
The cleaning company we use had a departure cleaning booked for the prior guest but somehow there was a miscommunication between their offices and the cleaning team that is staitioned at our property , and the studio was not cleaned for this guests arrival. This all occurred on July 3rd near midnight and the cleaning company and all staff were off work for the 4th of July national holiday.
The guest did not stay and was fully refunded.
We were in Europe for the 4th of July holiday when this occurred. We heard a voicemail from the arriving guest after the fact, due to the time change. Naturally they were upset and excited, and theatened us with legal actions. One of our neighbors was notified of their need for accomodation, had availabilty, and they accomodated this guest for the duration of their stay.
Security at our property always come to the studio to unlock the entry door and present a key to all arriving guests. Being July 3rd they were very busy even at 11:30 pm, along with having less employees on the midnight shift, thus it took half an hour to get there which did not help their arrival.
Sure beats a traditional hotel stay
The private, gated community was perfect for my extended stay. The efficiency condo was quiet, comfortable and clean. Easy access to the pool and beach allowed a nice break from completing my work in the room. Overall, a very nice stay. Thank you!
Very Nice Place!!
The property was very nice with a beautiful courtyard, a nice pool area, and a one minute walk to the beach. The studio was clean and very comfortable. A little disappointed that the washer and dryer was out of service, but would definitely rent again and would highly recommend the place to anyone. Thanks for a lovely stay!
The property was fabulous and perfect!
Just what the doctor ordered! I slept with the door open and the only thing I could hear was the sound of the ocean. 2 minutes to the beach for relaxing all day. A short drive to restaurants and other happenings. Cozy bed. Cozy blankets. What a wonderful stay.
Very comfortable, enjoyed our stay.
Property was very pretty, courtyard and pool picturesque! Somewhat disappointing we were not allowed in clubhouse but beach was beautiful.
Nicely appointed studio at Island House
Excellent location - everything you need for a great stay.
