It’s no secret that at Orchid Island residents are always living on island time. From long walks on the beach to teeing off on the Arnold Palmer-designed golf course, Florida living often feels like a year-round vacation at Orchid Island. But it’s the on-trend West Indies architecture that truly embodies the Orchid Island lifestyle. With panoramic window views, covered porches and transitional exteriors, this style is like a breath of fresh air. Each clean line adds to the perfect blend of contemporary and traditional that the West Indies architecture brings. While there are unique and luxurious modern elements to the design, it is the quintessential island-casual lifestyle at Orchid Island that really makes it special.

Born in the Caribbean islands, the West Indies architecture is defined by beautiful columns, louvers, railings and shutters. The trendy style is known for its distinguished symmetry with rooms, doors and windows arranged with emphasis on a central axis. Like its high ceilings with beam detail, the architecture’s symmetry was designed to be more than just appealing. Both features create cross-ventilation for a cool tropical breeze. The design’s impact is stunning and offers a fresh airy style for every room. It wouldn’t be island time, though, if we didn’t spend countless hours outside, which is why we love the style’s inviting outdoor living areas. West Indies architecture brings life to our Orchid Island lifestyle. It comes as no surprise that it has been a distinguishing characteristic of the community.

When it comes to oceanfront living, many envision breathtaking views of the ocean, soft sand on our feet and the sound of waves gently rolling against the shore. All of which becomes an even more heightened experience when framed by the West Indies architecture of Orchid Island’s private Beach Club. Large windows and open-air balconies overlook the swimming pool, private cabanas and beach walkover. Entire walls open up to large verandas that offer views of the ocean, bringing the outside in.

Orchid Island is well-known for its cherished island way of life. The Beach Club’s intimate layout creates the perfect environment for a retreat getaway that never has to end. Orchid Island’s secluded beach offers more than a mile of private oceanfront, along with beachside services. Not to mention the resort-style pool and amenities such as tennis, pickleball and a fitness center available to members.
