It is located on an unspoiled island which gives Ocean Village visitors an intimate involvement with the sea, and lends to the soft sub-tropical climate that makes year round living a pleasure.

Fishing: The beach at Ocean Village is a great place to surf fish for Bluefish, Pompano and other species all year round. Also, there is excellent fishing at the South Jetty at Fort Pierce Inlet. The PP Cobb Bridge which connects S. Hutchinson Island with the town of Fort Pierce also has 2 catwalks which offer excellent Indian River fishing as well. There is also great fishing 10 minutes north on the Little Jim Bridge on the causeway to North Hutchinson Island.
Grapefruit League Baseball: Grapefruit League Baseball Ocean Village is within a half hour drive of the LA Dodgers (Vero Beach) and NY Mets (St. Lucie West) Spring Training Camps...In addition, once spring training ends in early April, the minor league affiliates of both teams (Vero Beach Dodgers & St. Lucie Mets) play a full season of Class A Florida League baseball at these same sites from April to mid-September. Most of these minor league games are played at night and are very inexpensive. You can find discount coupons for many of the Mets games in many convenience stores and in the local newspapers. Although you've probably never heard of most of the players, it's a very enjoyable way to spend an evening.
My husband and I bought this property in 2001. We hope to make it our retirement nest one day. Unfortunately, for now, we have to keep working our way toward that goal in our home state of Michigan. Jeff has his own residential appraisal business and I am a teacher in the Detroit Public Schools.
We felll in love with Ocean Village upon first sight. The grounds are amazing looking, with lush tropical vegetation. The people are friendly and the buildings are well maintained. We love to play the nine hole golf course and of course, we hang-out at the pool and Tiki Bar.
This condo is special because it survived two hurricanes. The first punch was by Frances in August of 2004, a Category 4. Then three weeks later Jeanne made landfall right at Fort Pierce. The damage was something to behold. Looking at South Hutchinson Island, today, you would never know it happened, but it did! Just ask a local.
The Ocean Village is a spacious, private, guarded living area. The complex is situated east of the A1 directly on the Atlantic Ocean on South Hutchinson Island. It lies adjacent to the city of Fort Pierce and is accessible by crossing the P.P. Cobb Bridge at A1A. The units surround an executive 9-hole golf course which is free in the off season. The private beach is a length of more than half a mile. The untouched natural area south of the village is exciting to explore via the numerous County parks. You will see different types of birds, turtles, fish (for catch as well) and enjoy the feel of the perpetual ocean breeze.
Golf: Golf Information: Ocean Village is a fabulous place to enjoy a golf vacation with no less than 20 championship style golf courses (mostly Fazio, Nicklaus and Gary Player designed) all within a 40 minute drive. Prices range from $15 to $35 for 18 holes with a cart during the off-season. In-season prices are about double. All of these courses are open to the public. Many of them offer 'daily fee' golf (play-all-day) during certain days of the week or times of the year. Also most of these courses will not penalize you for a cart fee if you show up by yourself or with an odd number of golfers. The worst of these golf courses are probably nicer than any of the municipals that you play back home. To see a list of these golf courses go to http://members.aol.com/saupere/treasurecoastgolf.htm
