A hidden seaside treasure in Vero Beach, Orchid Island Golf & Beach Club beckons to a world-class resort-style paradise with only 376 private residences sited on over 600 acres stretching from the Atlantic Ocean to the Indian River Lagoon and Intracoastal Waterway. This community is just north of Vero Beach, which is a sophisticated town offering the charm of a quaint seaside village. Understated elegance meets West Indies romance in this intimate and understated, gated club community featuring exquisite residences along with an award-winning Arnold Palmer golf course, a pristine beach, and luxurious beach club.
An impressive year-round calendar of tournaments, club programs, and social activities complements the consummate Orchid Island lifestyle. The centerpiece of this enchanting sanctuary is the magnificent 18-hole championship golf course, a masterpiece created by the legendary Arnold Palmer, and regarded as one of his finest designs. The course stretches 7,131 yards from the longest tees for a par of 72, and water comes into play on numerous holes, adding to the design’s beauty and challenge. Traditionally styled and impressively appointed, the Orchid Island Golf Clubhouse offers a dining room, lounge, and grill with views overlooking a lake and grand fairways. The Golf Clubhouse also offers casual outdoor dining lakeside firepits to gather around to review that day's scores.
In a splendid tropical setting by the emerald ocean, the British West Indies-inspired oceanfront Beach Club is Orchid Island’s crown jewel, hosting formal and casual dining as well as gracious social gatherings. The lovely heated pool and spa are surrounded by terraces, loggias, and 27 privately-owned cabanas. There is also a Tennis & Fitness Club with eight Har-Tru tennis courts, fully equipped fitness center, and spa offering an indulgent menu of services.
Masterfully planned, this residential community offers a variety of options with gracious estate homes bordering the golf course and preserve, luxurious oceanfront condominiums, and maintenance-free villas and cottages. The classic architecture calls to mind the charming residences of Bermuda or the British West Indies, with features such as the wood and stucco facades, stately columns, arched loggias, window shutters, and colorful surrounding gardens. Exquisite ocean and riverfront estates, tranquil golf, lake and preserve estates and low-rise oceanfront condominiums complete this highly sought-after community. All of the residences are nestled in beautiful settings on winding streets and private cul-de-sacs designed to optimize open vistas of the lush fairways, conservation land, sparkling lakes, lagoon, and ocean that surround this idyllic one-of-a-kind retreat.
In the late 19th century, when the land was purchased for development in the early 1990s, ten grove owners were the only residents of the island. Today, Orchid Island Golf & Beach Club has become one of Vero Beach’s most scenic and desirable places to live. Orchid Island’s designation as a certified Audubon Sanctuary is a testament to its dedicated environmental stewardship and ensures that its natural beauty will be preserved for generations to come.
