The Trust Factor

When Melissa and David Bowser decided to renovate the John's Island condo that had belonged to Melissa's parents, they handed over the keys to a team of carefully chosen professionals, crossed their fingers and waved goodbye. It really came down to the trust factor.

Adler’s Alchemy

The sold-out event, which benefitted educational programs and attracted new members, was such a success that a second “Fashion Meets Art” is scheduled to take place Feb. 27, with well-known American potter, designer and author Jonathan Adler taking center stage.

A Beachside Residence Worthy Of A Standing Ovation

For over 20 years Katherine McConvey has been clipping photographs of interior designs, assembling a book of ideas to draw from when the time was right to build the house she envisioned. But first, she had to find the right property. In early 2011 the CEO of Alloy Development discovered just what she was looking for: a double lot spanning 200 feet of oceanfront in the heart of Vero Beach.

For Love Of The Land

When Carol Twyman talks about how she and her husband, Jeff, ended up building a home in John’s Island, the sparkle in her eyes says there’s more to the story than square footage, bricks and mortar. After years of short seasonal stays in their riverfront home near the Environmental Learning Center, the Twymans decided it was time to either renovate or relocate. Jeff was in the process of selling Greenline Foods, a produce company he founded 25 years ago, and looking forward to pursuing other interests. Carol was anticipating spending more time with family and tending to her garden.

Letting In The Light

Like many of our community’s residents, Gerry and Lorraine Taube of New Hampshire and New York originally resided in the North. When looking for a place to retire, they visited different areas of Florida, including Palm Beach Gardens, and ultimately decided they wanted to be on the East Coast. After visiting and attending their son’s wedding at Windsor, they fell in love with Vero Beach and decided on an extended stay.

At Home On the Water

Like others who have chosen to call Vero Beach home, the couple from Chicago discovered our community by chance. Seeking an escape from the Windy City’s endless winters, they had looked at a number of sunny southern spots but none felt quite right.
