Reservation Policies & Procedures

Qualifications for confirming your stay

Club members and their guests, as well as guests considering a residential investment in our exclusive club community, can rent a privately owned property subject to owner availability and rates.

While you do not need to know a Club member to rent within JI, you will need to be sponsored by a JI member if you desire access to the Club amenities. If you have not visited John's Island previously and desire Club access, share with us your sponsor or people you may know at John's Island so we may assist. 

If your interest is for future ownership, the John’s Island Real Estate Company staff can assist with home tours while you are here. Please let us know and we will have a Sales Executive contact you.

Note: Club policies limit guests to two rental periods during which temporary memberships can be obtained. 

Make your reservations early!

We recommend scheduling 4-6 months in advance for seasonal rentals, November 1 to April 30.

  • Island House = 3 days
