6 of the Best Retirement Communities for Active Adults in Indian River County and the Treasure Coast, FL


Retirement homes and communities can mean many different things to many different people. It can be a gated community, a golf-course residence, or a house on the beach.

For those who have spent most of their lives in the workforce, retirement can be a welcome change – an opportunity for stress-free living and to enjoy new activities and experiences.

The good news is that retirement communities are now as diverse as the people who choose to live there.

Here are six senior living communities that support your life and personal pursuits. Get to know them and what they can contribute to the next phase of your life.

  1. Harmony Reserve

    Established in 2015, this 120-acre gated active adult community boasts 397 lovely properties that offer resort-style amenities for adults 55 years old and above. The focal point is a 15,000 square-foot grand clubhouse that has all the facilities an active adult could ever wish for, including a movement studio, fitness center, luxurious swimming pool, sports courts (tennis, pickleball, bocce ball, etc.), and a banquet hall for social gatherings.

  2. Old Orchid

    The Old Orchid is known for its well-appointed, one-story single-family homes that showcase a Mediterranean theme. Its proximity to shopping, dining, and cultural centers make it a popular choice among 55+ adults. Brick-paved streets, lush lakefront views, and lively activities at the clubhouse further add to the location’s enticing qualities.

  3. Seasons at Orchid

    The developer of this gated neighborhood has limited the number of properties to just 100 to ensure a close-knit environment of like-minded residents. All homes are single-story and feature Caribbean-inspired designs with open floor plans, stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, and luxurious master suites.

  4. Lakes at Waterway Village

    Located along the Treasure Coast, the Lakes at Waterway Village is designed to create a welcoming atmosphere that promotes health, personal growth, and community support in a safe and comfortable setting. Construction began in 2017, so the location still has plenty of real estate opportunities. A variety of single-family homes offering different floor plans and options make Lakes at Waterway Village one of the more flexible retirement communities available.

  5. Isles at Waterway Village

    Isles is a resort-style idyllic community that boasts its own eagle sanctuary with an observation area – but that’s not the only thing it has to offer. Occupying 696 acres, the community features lakes, bike and hiking paths, wide sidewalks, and other beautiful natural reserves.

  6. Woodfield at Vero Beach

    Just a stone’s throw away from Indian River Mall lies Woodfield, a posh community with scenic golf courses, pristine beaches, and bustling marinas as well as clubhouse amenities, activity groups, and opportunities to go on day trips. Those lucky enough to purchase one of the Mediterranean-styled single-story villas and family homes at the location will never run out of fun things to do every day.
