Although some northern residents just spend the winter months in the Florida sun, many have decided to make the sunshine state their permanent home. The warm weather isn’t the only reason why everyone is wanting to make the move. Nestled on the shoreline of the Treasure Coast is Orchid Island Golf & Beach Club. Here’s a look at what is motivating those looking to move out of the cramped cities and down to Florida’s best kept secret.

Breath of Fresh Air

Head south, leave the over-populated polluted city behind and take a breath of the fresh Florida air. It’s easy to take advantage of the open space and nature with sunshine year-round and endless ways to be active outside. As an Audubon Certified Sanctuary, Orchid Island Golf & Beach Club is home to an assortment of local wildlife, including otters, manatees and rare white pelicans – just to name a few. The famous Indian River Lagoon is in Orchid Island’s backyard. Here, locals can discover the most diverse ecosystem in the northern hemisphere either on foot or by kayak. Orchid Island is proud to offer a new private kayak launch making enjoying the outdoors that much easier. Whether on the golf course, walking the Jungle Trail, or enjoying more than one mile of secluded beach, there is always an opportunity to be surrounded by wildlife in its natural habitat.

Live Life on Island Time

After crossing the A.B. Michael Bridge onto the barrier island, it is island time all the time. The only traffic here to worry about might be waiting for a turtle to cross the road. On island time, no day is the same, and you can enjoy it at your own pace. The day could start with a round of golf on a course Arnold Palmer designed himself, and perhaps end with an oceanfront meal at the clubhouse. Or, it could start with a refreshing swim in the ocean and end with a casual night at home. The possibilities are endless!

From Big Cities to Small Towns

You’ll experience a small hometown feel with an oceanfront setting. Here in Vero Beach, residents enjoy a variety of shopping and dining options. Quaint restaurants and local boutiques are the local favorites. At Orchid Island, you’re close to everything you need, yet you’ll feel miles away. And you won’t find a high rise in sight!

Why Orchid Island?

For northern residents looking to trade chaos for tranquility, Orchid Island is the perfect private club community to call home. There’s something for everyone here from estate homes to beachfront condominiums. Whether you are looking for views of the estuary, ocean, Intracoastal, or the fairways, you will find it at Orchid Island. Members can even use a golf cart as their primary transportation around the community. From the eight Har-Tru tennis courts, to the Arnold Palmer championship golf course, to the secluded beach with private access, there is always an opportunity to enjoy the island lifestyle.

There is no shortage of dining options here either as Members can choose from either a causal lunch at the Pool Grille or an upscale oceanfront dinner at the Beach Club. The West Indies Architecture and design is stunning. This, paired with the breathtaking ocean views, makes the Beach Club a place unlike any other.

Members of Orchid Island are very lucky to call this amazing place home. 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, 18-hole championship course is not only renowned among courses, but also holds an Audubon Certified Sanctuary status for its commitment to natural preservation. The recently renovated Beach Club serves as a gathering place for families and friends to reunite. Private club events and holidays are held in the Beach Club dining room and family fun in the sun at the Beach Club’s beautiful pool and beach. Orchid Island spans from the Atlantic Ocean all the way to the Indian River, so there’s plenty of ways to enjoy island time.

Orchid Island is a place of true beauty and natural wonder. Perfectly situated between the Indian River and the Atlantic Ocean, Orchid Island Golf & Beach Club is a hidden mecca for local wildlife. A variety of natural neighbors call this place home and the members here are committed to protecting the area’s natural beauty. From its status as a Certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary to its pristine private shore, the Club recognizes that its animal neighbors, like turtles, white pelicans, and otters, are as much part of the community as the residents themselves.

One reason why Orchid Island has so many animal visitors is because of its location. Nestled between the Atlantic Ocean and the Indian River, it boasts a mile of private beach and it’s not uncommon to see dolphins swimming in the clear greenish-blue water or sandpipers scouring along while strolling the shoreline. Come May through October, many loggerhead turtles call this beach home and lay their eggs as it’s one of the best places in the world for turtle hatchlings.

The Indian River is known as one of the most bio-diverse ecosystems in the world and this natural neighborhood is home to many different species of fish, birds and so much more. From the red mangroves that hug the shoreline to the seagrass beds that lie under the surface, the wildlife here is unmatched. Rare white pelicans and rosette spoonbills are known to call this place home as well as friendly manatees.

And not to be left out, the golf course at Orchid Island is also home to many varieties of wildlife. From playful otters to birds such as the white pelicans and ospreys, members here enjoy the daily sightings of the unique wildlife. The Club has also installed specialty bird boxes throughout the course and many new “members” are born here each year – including screech owls.

Orchid Island works hard to preserve a way of life not only for the natural neighbors who live in the area but for the people who live here as well. Members and residents enjoy the convenience of a golf cart lifestyle. Traveling the community via golf cart makes getting to any of the amenities a fun and enjoyable experience, including the West Indies, styled private Beach Club, which overlooks a private beach just for residents and their families to take pleasure in.

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 to over $10 million and include custom estate residences, courtyard homes, cottage, or oceanfront condominiums.

For Members of Orchid Island, the spectacular oceanfront Beach Club serves as the heart of the community. Its authentic West Indies style is elegant and impressive, but also down-to-earth and welcoming, furnished in rich, dark woods and whimsical, brightly colored fabrics. With windows covering almost every wall, members can soak in the million-dollar views.

When you step inside the Orchid Island Beach Club, the first word that comes to mind is “authentic.” The club’s tropical West Indies style is the perfect combination of casual comfort and stylish elegance. The look fits in perfectly with the enviable waterfront setting. The architecture and decor, with balconies and verandas, French doors and multi-pane windows, rich wood and Far Eastern accents, set it apart.

Though the inside of the Club is tropical and appealing, you’ll discover the real
magic outside. The connected boardwalk leads to over a mile of private beach, quiet and natural, right there for you to enjoy. Don’t worry about carrying a chair, the Beach Club has plenty of chaise lounges and umbrellas to relax on and under. The resort-like pool is the perfect place to cool off from the beach. You don’t even have to leave your lounge chair to enjoy a flavorful wrap, fresh salad or a juicy burger from the Pool Grille. Or you can cool off with a frozen drink from the poolside Turtle Bar. Add in the private cabanas facing the beach and a spacious locker room and towel service, and you can see why Orchid Island’s whole waterfront experience makes every day feel like a holiday.

And the beauty of the club is just beginning. Natural neighbors here abound, from white pelicans, to sea turtles to otters. The Arnold Palmer championship golf course is also an Audubon Certified Sanctuary.

If you want to get up close to nature and experience the best the area has to offer, then Orchid Island Golf & Beach Club is where you want to be. 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.

March is a fantastic time to get outside and enjoy local food, shops, and experiences. Vero Beach has plenty of opportunities for us to do so. From food and festivals to markets and music, this month is full of activities and opportunities for all. Below are some of our favorite events in the area. How do you plan on spending the springtime?

Main Street Vero Beach Vintage Market

Collecting vintage pieces and fine artworks is an intensive hobby. Fortunately, it doesn’t have to be hard. The Main Street Vero Beach Vintage Market, hosted by Main Street Vero Beach, is one of the best places to look. On March 9th, guests will spend the day along 14th Avenue and 20th Street sifting through the racks of vintage clothing and furniture, perusing the crafts of local artists, and sampling the delicacies of local food vendors, all the while spending a sunny afternoon in the beautiful historic downtown of Vero Beach.

March Shows at the Riverside Theatre

As Vero Beach’s preferred destination for live entertainment since 1973, the Riverside Theatre has been where aspiring stars have put on performances that have wowed local audiences. Part of the theatre’s 2019 season includes Ghost Writer and My Fair Lady. Ghost Writer is the story of a secretary who continues to write her deceased charge’s works after his passing, and how society views this transgressive act. My Fair Lady is the retelling of the famous George Bernard Shaw play Pygmalion, in which a young Cockney woman takes contemporary manners, society, and perceptions to task as she works with a phoneticist to prepare for her introduction into high society. Reflecting both turn-of-the-century sensibilities and modern concepts of gender and power, viewers will find plenty that reverberates with them in this performance.

68th Annual Under The Oaks Arts and Crafts Show

You may have noticed that this area has an unrivaled creative spirit. Nothing displays this better than the Under the Oaks Arts and Crafts Show. Held by the Vero Beach Art Club, its 68th year establishes it as a cultural institution for Vero Beach. The show raises money for the organization while highlighting the works of over 220 artists from across the nation. On March 9th, enjoy viewing works by artists and chowing down on local foods while touring beautiful Riverside Park.

42nd Annual Antique Auto Show

Riverside Park isn’t home to just amazing live acts or art shows – its where you can see the coolest cars of yesteryear, as well. Come March 16th, expect to see over 325 cars from the 20th century, alongside foreign and modified cars. Events will include dash plaques, trophies, and contests as car owners compete to see who owns the best automobile. When you attend, remember to bring non-perishable food items to help out the Vero Beach Post Office “Drive Out Hunger.”

Maybe your idea of a good day is shopping for unique pieces and trying dishes from renowned restaurants. Or maybe you want to have a close encounter with manatees, otters, ospreys, and other kinds of wildlife. You’ll find all of that and more right near Orchid Island. Looking to kick back and relax on a private beach, or play a few rounds of golf on expertly designed courses? Hoping to take the golf cart to dinner, or get to know your neighbors with fun activities and experiences? Orchid Island is the perfect place to live a truly unique lifestyle.

Orchid Island Golf & Beach Club works hard to preserve a way of life for, not only the natural neighbors who live on the Treasure Coast, but the residents as well. Animals from river otters to dolphins to loggerhead turtles populate the area, granting residents opportunities to spot them as they wander through the miles of trails that the neighborhood offer. Members and residents enjoy their private beach access thanks to the neighborhood spanning from the Atlantic Ocean to the Indian River.

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 is not only renowned among courses, but also holds an Audubon Certified Sanctuary status for its commitment to natural preservation. Having been established as one of the premier courses in the golfing world, Orchid Island Golf and Beach Club’s course hosted the 2018 U.S. Senior Women’s Amateur Championship, and continues to host its own private golfing events for its residents.

If you are looking for a true adventure right here on Orchid Island, head to the historic Jungle Trail, an eight-mile sandy road built in the 1920s along the banks of the Indian River. Originally constructed so that the citrus growers could transport their fruit, it is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, as it was the original A1A. Whether you choose to bike or hike, you’ll enjoy the scenery along the way, including palm tree hammocks and coastal wetland areas. You’ll also get to see some of the area’s magnificent homes. At the end of the trail, you’ll come to the Pelican Island Sanctuary, the first wildlife refuge in the U.S. National Park Registry.

The Historic Jungle Trail is also one of the best places to see the island’s flora and fauna. When you’re so close to the country’s oldest bird sanctuary, you’re sure to see some great things. Take a look in the sky every once in a while – you might catch an osprey or a rare white pelican. Pay attention to the grasses – you might find some unique plants. When you ride by the ocean, keep your eye out on the water – there may be a dolphin or a manatee swimming by.

If you can learn a lot about a town from what it saves for future generations, then there’s tons that a place like this one could say. Residents here work to save things not just for themselves, but for their families. Things like the knowledge of swinging a golf club, or the memory of playing on the beach. For those who want to get close to nature and enjoy the creature comforts of home, the Orchid Island Golf & Beach Club 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 the residents as well. Members and residents also enjoy the one-mile of private beach access and what’s even better, Orchid Island spans from the Atlantic Ocean to the Indian River.

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 is not only renowned among courses, but also holds an Audubon Certified Sanctuary status for its commitment to natural preservation.

What could manatees, American white pelicans, and loggerhead sea turtles all have in common? At first glance, these animals don’t seem to have many similarities at all. One lays its eggs on the beach, one swims in the water, and one flies in the air. As it turns out, that these animals have much more in common than it seems!

They Love The Water

This is the obvious one. Manatees and loggerheads live their lives in the water. In fact, the turtles don’t really leave the water except to lay their eggs. Did you know that turtles return each year to the same beach where they were born to lay their eggs? American white pelicans stick close to brackish water, a mix of fresh and salt water. Places like red mangroves and rivers are popular for them. To catch their meals, they can be seen corralling fish into an area and then plunging their bucket-like bills into the water. The closer that you are to the water, the more likely that you’re able to spot these animals!

They’re Protected

While loggerhead sea turtles, American white pelicans, and manatees are considered beautiful and important parts of Florida’s ecosystem, they’re also ecologically sensitive. Because of this, lawmakers and residents have worked so that certain protections ensure the safety of these animals. At Orchid Island, this can include everything from setting up special lights on the Beach Club so that baby sea turtles can’t see them to let scientists and conservationists know when a rare species has taken up residence in Orchid Island, like the pelicans. This way, we can ensure that these animals come to stay with us for a long time.

They Live at Orchid Island

Orchid Island is designated as a Certified Cooperative Audubon Sanctuary. That means that the staff and residents of the Club work to preserve the natural environment. Because of that, usually rare animals such as American white pelicans are known to migrate here. They are often seen flying over the golf courses from November through March. Manatees float placidly down the river around this area. They’re drawn to the naturally warm waters. Our beaches are some of the best and most popular nesting grounds for the loggerhead sea turtles. During peak season, their nests are marked off to protect the eggs from beachgoers. Next time that you pay a visit to Orchid Island, keep a close lookout-you may never know what you might see!

For those who want to get close to nature and enjoy the creature comforts of home, the Orchid Island Golf & Beach Club 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 the residents as well.

Now’s The Time To Buy The Florida Vacation Home You’ve Always Wanted

In Vero Beach, Florida, you’ll discover the best of both worlds. That’s because Vero is at the eastern edge of the demarcation line that separates Florida into two different climate zones. North of Vero is a subtropical climate, and south of it is tropical. That’s why Vero Beach is known as the “Gateway to the Tropics” and is graced with a unique mix of vegetation. Growing here are coconut palms and bright tropical flowers that won’t grow even a few miles north. Alongside these tropical wonders, you’ll find a beautiful, rich landscape made up of ancient oak hammocks and dense pine forests. Add to that the area’s beautiful beaches and the citrus trees that thrive here, giving the area the title of “Citrus Capital of the World.” With all this environmental diversity, it’s easy to see why Vero Beach has so much natural appeal.

For many generations, Vero Beach and its surrounding areas were known as the benchmark for quality citrus production and shipment. People all over the world enjoyed the juicy Indian River citrus grown here. It wasn’t until Edwin Llwyd Ecclestone Sr. purchased the 3000-acre estate on John’s Island that the Vero Beach area began to thrive as a resort destination. Ecclestone and his team recruited Fortune 500 CEOs and entrepreneurs from up north to create a golf community that drew top tier individuals to this area. Ground was broken in 1969, and the first of three golf courses opened the next year.

In 1987, Orchid Island, north of John’s Island, followed suit, when it was sold to Robert Haines III of Avon, Connecticut, and a small group of limited partners. At that time, the town of Orchid had only seven inhabitants. Haines’ vision was to build a few hundred British West Indies–style homes overlooking the ocean, the Indian River and a spectacular golf course. Ground was broken on Orchid Island Golf & Beach Club in 1988. Just like on John’s Island, this spectacular community became a draw, attracting high-end individuals to this stunning oasis.

Soon, Orchid Island Golf & Beach Club was attracting people from every part of the country, as it had quickly become one of the most desirable oceanfront properties on the Treasure Coast, with one of Florida’s few barrier island golf courses. Throughout the generations of settlers in the Vero Beach area, there has always been a common thread—conservation and respect for the land. This long-standing culture began in the early 20th century, when Pelican Island in the Indian River Lagoon was designated as the country’s first wildlife refuge. The area has always been developed thoughtfully and with care. Instead of the urban sprawl that defines other parts of Florida, this area was planned in an organized fashion, taking green spaces into account and preserving beautiful, historic structures, allowing it to retain a charming, small-town flavor.

 For those who want to get close to nature and enjoy the creature comforts of home, the Orchid Island Golf & Beach Club 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 the residents as well. Members and residents also enjoy the one-mile of private beach access and what are even better, Orchid Island spans from the Atlantic Ocean to the Indian River.

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 is not only renowned among courses, but also holds an Audubon Certified Sanctuary status for its commitment to natural preservation.

Remember how refreshed you felt after your last trip to the beach? Turns out that that’s not all just in your mind! Science has pointed out studies and examples of how living near the water is good for your health. “The members of Orchid Island absolutely love the private beach and access to the water. It’s something that really sets our lifestyle apart,” said Rob Tench, General Manager of Orchid Island. “The Beach Club is a great place to enjoy the natural surroundings, soak up the sun and get some fresh air, right here in their own backyard.” The waterfront energizes people in many ways – see some of them below.

Calm and Clear

Many people report that they feel more relaxed when they’re near the water, and there’s some science to back that. Wallace J. Nichols, Ph.D., marine biologist, and author of the book Blue Mind: The Surprising Science That Shows How Being Near, In, On, or Under Water Can Make You Happier, Healthier, More Connected, and Better at What You Do discusses how the brain can “switch” into a different mode when it sees water, becoming calmer and more creative. While many reasons for this can be surmised, one thing to note is that the waves have a calm, repetitive sound and motion, and the ocean hosts a relaxing color scheme of blues and greens. We see the correlation here. The beach has been proved to increase calm and bring clarity to the mind.

Fresh Air and Sunshine

This may seem so obvious that it’s easy to pass over, but it makes sense. The waterfront, and the beach provide some always-needed fresh air and sunshine. It’s hard to pass up a day, or even just an hour or two, of relaxing on the beach. Soak up the sun (with sunscreen, of course), hunt for seashells, scout for wildlife or dive into a good book. The beach is the perfect place to get outside. Residents at Orchid Island have it right in their own backyard.

Members of Orchid Island Golf and Beach Club are even luckier still to call this amazing place home. The West-Indies style Beach Club serves as a gathering place for families and friends to reunite. Private club events and holidays are held in the dining room, and families enjoy fun in the sun along the Atlantic Ocean. Not to mention the resort style pool and amenities such as tennis, pickleball, and a fitness center available to members. Even better, Orchid Island spans from the Atlantic Ocean all the way to the Indian River.

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 is not only renowned among courses but also holds an Audubon Certified Cooperative Sanctuary status for its commitment to natural preservation. Orchid Island Golf & Beach Club is also the proud host of this year’s 57th Annual U.S. Senior Women’s Amateur Championship which will be held October 6-11, 2018.
