Orchid IslandEast Coast Middle Florida
Orchid Island is perhaps Vero Beach's most prestigious address located on the northern side of one of the top Florida retirement cities. The debt-free, 600-acre gated community showcases West Indies inspired architecture and borders both the Indian River and Atlantic Ocean, and is located just south of the Sebastian Inlet. The grandeur of the Orchid Island club is enhanced by miles of unspoiled beaches, private beach access walkways, and 25 chic poolside cabanas. The tropical 25,000-square-foot beach club offers casual and upscale dining overlooking the Atlantic Ocean.
Orchid Island's 18-hole championship golf course was designed by Arnold Palmer. The scenic course's topography weaves around grand palm trees, bubbling lakes, and an Audubon Certified Sanctuary. Vero Beach luxury homes overlook the course, the beach, and the Indian River. The recently renovated 17,000-square-foot golf clubhouse has beautiful views of the lakes, the golf course fairways and Vero Beach luxury homes within the community. While visiting, we observed members enjoying both clubhouses for social events, games, and lectures. Both inside the golf clubhouse and out on the veranda, the club offers delicious lunch and dinner. The club is one of the Distinguished Emerald Clubs of the World for providing a superlative member experience.
