Those little yachtel's are they for rent? Do you need to be a member?

My grandmother-in-law lives there and was on the committee to "resurrect" one of the yachtel's.

It's an amazing place.

love the ORC. we'll be down there for thanksgiving. father-in-law is there this weekend playing a little golf w/ KBK... i'd tell you to keep an eye out for a fellow in a pink blazer and lilly pants, but that wouldn't narrow it down much. enjoy that cocktail at Member's Point watching the boats come in.

Such a great place. Unfortunately its lost its soul I think...lots of loose architecture and the closing of Blues Bar to drive more revenue out of their big new Bergie bar that is 100% void of character.

There is a 'sister' club to Ocean Reef called Anglers - still very old school - worth a visit. Still has the piano bar...

Reef Cups are my favorite drinks ever. I have tried to recreate them but have never made them even close to as good

Last summer, my girlfriends and I went on the most relaxing vacation in the Florida Keys. We found an incredible rental in the awesome Ocean Reef Community in Key Largo. Elaine knew Bob from Swenson & Ecuyer Realty and he found us this perfect condo right on the breathtaking Marina. Bob and his team provided excellent concierge service, that catered to our every needs. We did everything... scuba diving, tennis, sailing, golfing, etc.. The experience was amazing!
