About our home

 

Original Florida home, 2 bedroom, two bath. Located on Orchid Island, a split of land bordered by the Atlantic Ocean, and the Indian River...135 mikes north of Miami, 100 miles south east of Orlando. The house is 200 meters from the ocean, 400 meters to riverside. Built by my father in 1951, it is mostly original which makes it quite unique. The lot is heavily wooded...still think 50 + palms have survived the hurricanes and a half dozen large oaks. Not to discourage you but things are alive there...usually a snake will be seen slithering through the underbrush, but have had wild parrots, great horned owls, and possums from time to time. And Florida has bugs.

Locality

Where to shopMost shops are located on the mainland, about a 2 miles drive over one of two bridges (you are on an island). But there are smaller grocery stores (more upscale) and restraurants within 200 meters.
Restaurants & barsLots of these. My favorite is Riverside....catch the happy hour at 5 and the sunset on the river at 7...you can walk, and if you are drinking, it's best
Cultural highlightsNot much in the way of culture in this place, although the Art Museum and Theater is a 300 meter walk away. It was build by our northern visitors who felt the place needed some culture.
OutdoorsLots of outdoors here, that's what I like about it. In fact, what we always do is contact Outdoor Adventures for a canoe trip on jungle rivers or blue cypress lake...lots of dolphins, and allagotors
Day tripsKennedy Space Center, Disney World, Miami Beach...most everything is less than a 3 hour drive away...
