Imagine a kitchen straight off the pages of a magazine along with sweeping golf course views from the patio. A trip to the spa is just a golf cart ride away and nature surrounds you at every turn. Sound too good to be true? It’s possible at Orchid Island Golf & Beach Club in Vero Beach, Florida where a number of select homesites are now available for homebuyers to build their forever homes.

Natural Surroundings

Paradise awaits within this cherished private club community. Nestled between the Indian River Lagoon and the Atlantic Ocean, Orchid Island is home to some of the area’s best waterfront experiences. Breathtaking flora and fauna are a daily occurrence at Orchid Island. Spotting a manatee, dolphin, or river otter while kayaking in the lagoon is a way of life for residents. Recognized as a Certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary for its achievements in protecting habitat, Orchid Island is a great place to live for both wildlife and people.

Paradise Your Way

Because of Orchid Island’s commitment to preserving the surrounding wildlife, only a limited number of homesites remain in this private sanctuary. Whether building an estate home on the legendary Arnold Palmer championship golf course or choosing a homesite within walking distance to the beach club, the best part about building a home is the opportunity to include personal touches along the way. Finding a suitable floorplan in an existing home may present a challenge, while building provides homebuyers the freedom to fit their tastes. From the type of countertops in the master bathroom to the tile on the kitchen floor, it is possible to create a home with all the best features. Large bedrooms, an open concept floorplan, and high ceilings are all possible when building from the ground up. While existing homes may need extensive repairs and upgrades, a new home with the latest in innovative appliances and technology is an investment for years to come.

The Ultimate Golf and Beach Club Lifestyle

Creating a private oasis coupled with many opportunities to live an active lifestyle is what makes Orchid Island an irresistible choice for a forever home. The Tennis and Fitness Center is home to eight Har-Tru tennis courts, pickleball, state-of-the-art fitness machines, and more than 35 group exercise classes. The beloved centerpiece of this village community, the Arnold Palmer-designed golf course tests players at all skill levels. This feat is managed with nine tee combinations creating flexible overall distances ranging from 4,321 to 7,126 yards. A recently opened kayak launch offers an opportunity for residents to explore the beauty of the Indian River Lagoon.

After a day on the links or a tough match on the courts, or just for a treat, Orchid Island members can relax with an extensive selection of massage therapy or spa treatments at the Spa at Orchid Island Golf & Beach Club. Nearly a mile of pristine beach also beckons those who wish to take a stroll and enjoy the ocean air. Residents here have everything within reach to live the island lifestyle to the fullest.

Orchid Island works hard to preserve a way of life not only for an abundance of wildlife 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 a golf cart makes getting to any of the amenities a fun and enjoyable experience, including the West Indies style 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. Luxury residential properties range from the $1 millions to over $8 million and include custom estate residences, courtyard homes, cottage, and oceanfront condominiums.

To an outsider, a lot of the Country Clubs in Florida seem to be similar. They have the golf and the tennis and of course the big, fancy clubhouse. However, at Orchid Island Golf & Beach Club, located in the Town of Orchid, in Vero Beach, “club” means much, much more. This gated private club community tucked away on a barrier island between the Atlantic Ocean and the Indian River Lagoon features ten “Clubs within the Club” with a full schedule of events for Members. The variety of special interest activities allows Members to get to know each other beyond the golf course and fitness center creating lasting friendships among Members, an attribute that makes this private community truly unique.

The Arts

Whatever the choice of medium, the Art Club fosters talents and appreciates varying levels of experience. From watercolor to photography, Members can enjoy sharing their ideas as well as learning something new with a variety of classes, lectures, and even trips to local museums.

We all know that the events of 2020 have changed the way people think about their homes and lifestyles. All across the country, residents in densely populated areas are seeking refuge in the warm open air of the Sunshine State this Winter. Broader acceptance of working remotely has also caused some to make the move to Florida to find a better balance of indoor/outdoor living. For those who dream of beachfront living or spending their afternoons on the back nine, there has never been a better time to consider living on the Treasure Coast.

Natural Barrier Island

Although there are many golf communities in South Florida, it’s extremely rare to find the combination of an oceanfront lifestyle and an award-winning golf club community. At Orchid Island, the lock-and-leave lifestyle of its oceanfront condominiums is experiencing rising demand from those who recognize this unique opportunity.

Nearly a Mile of Secluded Beach
