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.

Resort-style living

Instead of focusing solely on profit and loss, outdoor activities can help keep the mind sharp and engaged. Imagine sitting outside by the pool, overlooking to the golf course to release the stresses of the day. Orchid Island Golf & Beach Club provides this and so much more. The 18-hole Arnold-Palmer designed Audubon-certified golf course is the cornerstone of Orchid Island. Those with an appreciation for Florida’s flora and fauna are sure to appreciate the intricacies of this course right along with the opportunity to spot wildlife along the way. The Treasure Coast gives sanctuary to 1,500+ species of Florida’s migratory birds and wildlife: manatees, river otters, armadillos, bobcats, deer, smaller mammals, and more.

For a little more competitive action, our Members also enjoy eight Har-Tru tennis courts and pickleball courts. The on-site Fitness Center is equipped with state-of-the-art cardio and weight training options, as well as a Pilates studio and a full class schedule.

Location independence

The acceptance of working from home has shown that the days of needing to live in large metropolitan areas are over. The desire for a better quality of life with access to Florida’s open-air is replacing the confines of city living. Private Club living provides a luxury lifestyle with the benefits of club services and social activities for networking.

It’s hard to find a place that does food like Vero Beach does. The town’s proximity to the oceanfront, along with its knack for drawing in creative chefs, produces restaurants that serve up dishes that are fresh and inventive. Not to mention, the views of the Atlantic Ocean right alongside many of the local restaurants. Plenty of them are located by the beach, but only a select few stand out for their amazing tastes as well. Check out four of Vero Beach’s best below.

Citrus

Executive Chef Scott Varricchio has a detailed resume, including an executive sous chef position at Ouest in New York. It’s from this background that he brings the flavors that make up Citrus to the Vero Beach area. Described as a meld of classic and Italian, Citrus serves to challenge notions on flavor and taste – and delivers an amazing view. Dishes include shichimi ahi tuna and summer corn and bacon risotto, all complemented with the dramatic oceanfront panorama at the restaurant’s edge.

Ocean Grill

For roughly 80 years, Ocean Grill has been a landmark in Vero Beach’s history. Constructed in the 1920s, its locale by the Atlantic Ocean has drawn in guests of all kinds. The restaurant served as a military bar during WWII and switched various hands before ending up with the Repogle Family in 1965. Today, the Repogles serve up New England style food such as steaks and crab au gratin for their guests, while they enjoy a view of the Atlantic.

Cobalt Restaurant

There are few dining experiences such as the one that Cobalt can offer. With a design that’s inspired by the oceanfront behind the restaurant, the dining room’s clean lines and simple color scheme accent the dishes served here. From the shellfish tower of lobster tail, oyster, and shrimp, to their list of signature cocktails, diners here enjoy a taste to remember. For those in search of something more classic, the woodstone zucchini and rollatini with a roasted tomato sauce and herb and garlic whipped Brie would impress them. That is, if their seat by the Atlantic Ocean doesn’t impress them enough.

The Beach Club Dining Room, Orchid Island

Set aside exclusively for members of Orchid Island Golf & Beach Club is a restaurant which has sights over the Atlantic Ocean that are just as amazing as the food on the menu. At Orchid Island’s Beach Club Dining Room, the elegant aesthetics serve to frame the views of the Ocean, shining in from the restaurant’s expansive windows. As diners enjoy the view, they’ll also enjoy fresh salads, steaks and seafood, along with tableside service and an extensive wine and cocktail list. Executive Chef Chris Sozio and his team ensure the quality of ingredients by purchasing from local growers and independent farms when possible. He even grows some fresh produce onsite himself! Food that tastes great and comes with the best oceanfront spot in town? It doesn’t get any better than this.

There’s no argument that Vero Beach knows how to serve up a great time with a fantastic view and this isn’t limited to dining. The area has a reputation for offering the best in quality, from shopping to living options. But there’s one community that puts the best of everything together – Orchid Island Golf & Beach Club.

Members of Orchid Island recognize the beauty of this community and the lifestyle here. Along with its state-of-the-art amenities, Orchid Island works hard to preserve a way of life for not only its neighbors who live on the Treasure Coast, but its Members as well.

There are many conveniences at Orchid Island that Members enjoy, but the golf cart lifestyle is on the top of the list. Traveling the community via their personally owned golf cart allows them to access the Club’s amenities quickly while also having a fun and enjoyable experience. One of the favorites is heading over to the private West Indies styled Beach Club, where they and their families can swim, surf and sunbathe before jumping into the beautifully exclusive swimming pool which sits adjacent to the Pool Grille and Turtle Bar.
This private community is committed to providing an extraordinary level of service. Golf here is unparalleled, as the Arnold Palmer designed 18-hole course is not only revered as one of the best in the region, but also considered a picturesque nature walk throughout this unique habitat.

Luxury residential properties range from the $800s up to $10 million and include custom estate residences, courtyard homes, cottages and oceanfront condominiums. Check out the full list of available real estate listings at Orchid Island.
