Our members love owning their own golf carts. Why you ask? Well, mainly, this masterstroke of convenience means one thing: island living without the hustle and bustle of traffic, pollution and noise. Yes, that’s right. You don’t need a car to get around here. Whether you want to enjoy some fun in the sun at the beach or pool, dine out or go for a workout at the Tennis & Fitness Center, you simply get in your own golf cart and you’re where you want to be in a matter of five minutes or less. And that also means you can keep your set of golf clubs in your cart so when you’re ready to hit a ball or two, you can just hop in and head on over to the putting green, driving range or 1st tee!

Convenience aside, there is nothing more enjoyable than taking an open-air ride amid some of Florida’s most diverse landscapes. Along the way, chances are high that you will get to see white pelicans along the lakes or an otter family crossing the road. Every turn welcomes another view of the peaceful, natural surroundings as you pass and exchange waves with your friendly neighbors.

If you’re someone who wants to get close to nature and still enjoy the creature comforts of home, then Orchid Island is the place for you. The amenities are second to none. Orchid Island works hard to preserve a way of life for not only the natural neighbors who live on the Treasure Coast but for its members as well. What’s even better, Orchid Island stretches from the Atlantic Ocean to the Indian River, and members enjoy more than a mile of private beach access.

This private community is committed to providing a level of service that stands out from the rest. Golfing here is unparalleled, as the Arnold Palmer designed, 18-hole course holds Certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary status for its commitment to natural preservation.

If this island lifestyle sounds like it is right up your alley, you can request your copy of the inaugural issue of Orchid Island Lifestyles magazine here to learn more about the Vero Beach area and all that it has to offer.

Luxury residential properties range from the $800s to up to $10 million and include custom estate residences, courtyard homes, cottages and oceanfront condominiums. For a full list of available real estate at Orchid Island, visit our Real Estate page.
