Reservation Policies & Procedures

Qualifications for confirming your stay

Many of our owners have finalized the dates for which they are making their homes available this season. If you are a Club member or have your members' Club number, you will be able to book your reservation directly on our website for these properties. If you are visiting our website for the first time or are selecting properties requiring owner confirmation, you can simply select your desired dates and preferred properties by clicking the "heart" beside them, and then we can assist you in confirming availability.

You do not need to know a Club member to rent within JI, but you do need sponsors 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 you do not have a sponsor or member, we may be able to help if you have a discussion with a member of the Club staff.

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 if you would like a Sales Executive to contact you.

Below is an overview of what to expect when you check out. This is included in the Terms and Conditions of your lease. 

If you have rented at John's Island before, but are not related to your Club sponsor

Please fill in the information requested above – total number of guests, adults, children, and pet requests, submit your request; and we will advance it promptly.

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

If you have not visited John’s Island before, but desire a temporary Club membership, we can help!

We want to provide you with the guidance to move through both the reservations process and the acquisition of your temporary Club membership. This will require work with the Club office, so we will need a little more time to accomplish the full confirmation. If you do not know current Club members, please let us know, and we can connect you to the Club office to discuss their assistance with sponsorship.

Make your reservations early!

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