Why We Love ORC

Safety/Reminiscent of Another Time


  • We call ORC, a slice of Americana that doesn't exist anymore.  Kids drive their golf carts and bicycles, go fishing, get ice cream and hang out together on Buccaneer Island. Families go boating, play catch on the beach, compete for prizes at Trivia nights, BINGO and cards, play pickelball and tennis. There is so much to do ( daily and seasonal parties, beach games and activities, shows, concerts, theater, cooking and art classes, street fairs, community 5Ks ands so much more) . Do everything or just relax by the beach or on the water--it's all your call.
  • ORC offers a one-of-a-kind community spirit and old-fashioned  respectful values you don't see often enough anymore. 
  •  It's reminiscent of the more family-oriented 1950s with all the advantages and world class amenities and technology of today.  
  • Cell phone use is not permitted in restaurants, giving people real time to enjoy each other's company and take a breather from today's hectic lifestyle.
  •  Our Villa Cay neighborhood in particular offers an exciting atmosphere with people walking and jogging by. It really is the best location on The Reef. So close to Buccaneer, you can see fireworks in the sky above the house during big events, flyovers during Vintage Weekend and take a quick 2 minute walk daily for coffee, lunch, dinner, the Beach bar or the pool any day of the week.
  •  The Club is one of the most secure communities in the world. We have our own public safety and fire department, medical center, national banks, on-site paramedics, ambulances and extensive surveillance throughout our gorgeous community.
  •  It's a members-only club so everyone who is on The Reef is either a member or an invited/ sponsored guest. 
  • Employees and workers have detailed background screenings. 
  • Secure 24-hour front gate and patrol.

Busy or Not So Busy: You Decide


While The Reef is still one of the best kept secrets in the U.S.-members and guests come here all year long because nobody ever wants to leave. You'll see members and guests staying longer and longer-because it's such a fun, unique and safe community. So it's always wise to plan and book ahead to ensure you get your dates.  We can talk to you more specifically about your needs and help you decide what time works best for you.
