About Ken and Pat Wignall
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
Why Ken and Pat Wignall chose Johns Island
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.
What makes this Studio unique
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.

This rental was perfect for me. I was solo, coming down to kick off my golf season. Little did I know that we would be quarantined the day after my return to New York. The rental is a large, comfortable studio with a nice bed, all the necessary electronics and some sunlight. It is on the ground floor of a building just off the John's Island Club House off AIA. The owners were attentive, sending me two pdfs that were very useful and should be read. I'm embarrassed to admit that I had forgotten, by the time I arrived, that the time-of-arrival was 4pm, and that was why I had booked a round of golf for the afternoon of my arrival. The cleaning lady who was very nice, but surprised to see me, let me drop my bags, grab my shoes, and disappear.
When I returned, the apartment was totally ship-shape, and I spent three happy nights in the comfortable bed. I had friends in JI and had dinner with them twice, which involved a short walk to the club house. JI is convenient to the beach, to Vero, and to two excellent public golf courses at the Sandridge Club just to the north on the mainland.
My two problems with the rooms were: 1) several times the toilet didn't flush.... but there was a plunger immediately available. I have mentioned this to the owner.
Also, I found the sitting area strangely uncomfortable; both the chair and the sofa had incredibly high arm-rests that made it difficult, for example, to put a drink down on a table beside the chair, you were locked into using the table in front of the chair. I mentioned this as well.
But since I didn't spend much time there, it was a perfect place to crash. I should mention that there was a surprising amount of closet space, a nice little kitchen, and a perfectly satisfactory bathroom.
Being in JI, it was as safe as can be, and the grounds are well tended. In short, I was very satisfied.
The handle of the toilet needs to be held down to flush. It is a 'water saver' toilet with a hard bladder in the tank. I have hired a plumber and removed this toilet and installed a 'chair height' Kohler toilet.
We find our furniture very comfortable and this is the first time anyone has mentioned this. Sorry, but furniture is such a personal preference subject. Thank you for your great review.
A place to reset and relax
A great alternative to a hotel with more privacy, comfort and a wonderful location. With a pool just steps away and the ocean also a short walk, you have all you need to enjoy the best of Florida weather.
The studio is set up nicely with a bed, couches and a small table. There is a mini fridge, microwave and cook top but we came here to avoid cooking for a week so we didn't use much more than the fridge.
There were plenty of towels for the room and also to bring to the pool. Also the owners were very responsive when contacted and that's deserves praise as well.
My wife and I would be glad to stay again in the future.
Nice, quiet, private
Studio was clean and convenient. Beautiful grounds in gated community and very nice pool. Unit itself is nice, could use a bit of update. Maybe a little less furniture and something with drawers to allow unpacking a small bag. Bedding had a tear on one sheet and one bath towel was thread bare. There were other towels so we just swapped it out. Suited our needs for a few nights.
Clean and quiet place to stay close to the beach. Loved this place!
