Morning walks on the beach, afternoons by the pool, and endless rounds of golf—sounds like a vacation from the hustle and bustle of the office. Not anymore. As remote working continues to grow across the country, many vacation retreats like Florida’s Treasure Coast have quickly become permanent addresses for entrepreneurs and business executives across many industries. The region’s close proximity to Orlando International Airport opens the door for a well-balanced work-life situation while keeping the door open as business travel returns. For residents of Orchid Island Golf & Beach Club near Vero Beach, the ultimate golf and beach lifestyle and one-of-a-kind amenities create the perfect setting to work from home.

Better work-life balance

Whether it’s the sound of the waves rolling up onto the beach or the elimination of the daily commute, a remote work environment should offer less stress and more flexibility. A 2019 FlexJobs study found that 65% of professionals think they would be more productive working remotely. This can undoubtedly be attributed to the ability to customize home office spaces with the most comfortable chairs, décor, and of course, window views. The flexibility of remote work has also been shown to lower stress, with availability to try new hobbies and spend time with family and friends.

Not only can these experiences lead to greater happiness, working remotely offers more opportunities to stay healthy. With beautiful weather year-round, Florida is one of the best places to explore the outdoors. At Orchid Island Golf & Beach Club, a new kayak launch on the Indian River lagoon and miles of pristine Atlantic beach provides ample opportunity for active outdoor exercise, while the Club’s chefs offer a plethora of healthy menu options.
