The more things change, the more they stay the same. So it is at John’s Island, one of the most enviable places for the privileged with discerning taste to live and play on the eastern seaboard. This private ocean-to-river community is surrounded by unspoiled islands, nine miles of Intracoastal Waterway and three miles of pristine ocean beaches. Exquisite English, Georgian, and West Indies architecture, three championship golf courses, a spectacular new Beach Club, first class amenities, world-class tennis, squash and croquet facilities are all gently wrapped in the abundant natural landscape where the manatees live, the dolphins play in lagoons, and the tropics begin.
Discovered due to its natural splendor by E. Llwyd Eccelstone in 1969, this 1,650-acre oceanfront paradise is just north of Vero Beach, a quaint, unspoiled gem of a seaside town that still retains the charm and culture of Old Florida and yet boasts a high caliber theatre, museum of art and big city culture.
To say that all three generations of John’s Island Club members and their families relish the wonderful life here would be an understatement. With so many social, recreational and cultural activities available, no one sits on the sidelines. And, John’s Island remains one of the only private clubs in the nation with a vertical membership. Whether it’s tarpon fishing in John’s Island Sound, biking through 20 miles of private shaded roads under majestic oaks or attending a black-tie dinner at the Golf Club - it is here that memories and family traditions continue to be made and treasured for a lifetime.
