The distance to Florida's attractions is perfect: close enough for a day trip, far enough away to be relaxed and peacefully secluded from tourist traffic.
There is shopping galore both in regular as well as at Florida's famous Outlet malls.

Our Rudon Condo at Ocean Village has been in the Wilson family since 1988. First enjoyed by my parents as their winter getaway from New England winters, we have now taken over the unit for our own, using it as a family when we can. We are a multinational, multilanguage family who care for our unit through constant evaluation and renovation. see calendar for exact availability: this is ALWAYS kept up to date.
Cynthia purchased this Condo in 1988
Why Cynthia chose Fort Pierce
Ocean Village has been termed 'the best kept secret in Florida' Nestled in between the Indian River and the Atlantic Ocean, this gated community has golf, tennis, extremely well-maintained 120 acre grounds and 24/7 security. The private beach is spectacular, the facilities up to par and the staff, extremely friendly. Safe, secure and peaceful in itself, yet a short drive away from all that Florida is famous for: Disney, Kennedy Space, Palm Beach, Miami, the outlets and the Everglades. Perfect for year round getaways: a romantic honeymoon: private, secluded, we can arrange for any special wishes; an unforgettable anniversary: beautiful setting, wonderful activities, perfect climate; THE best place to hide from winter storms and ice! The sea climate is mild and balmy from mid October through to the end of June; a GREAT place to bring the kids if you think there is more to Florida than just Mickey and his friends! Equidistant from the Everglades and all the Orlando theme parks, close to several nature reservations. Fort Pierce hosts a Manatee center; a perfect stop for international guests who can choose to either fly into Miami or to Orlando International Airports. Easy interstate highway access, a friendly staff and perfect security; actually, throughout the year, Rudon Condo is hospitable to just about any sort of guest. It is wheelchair accessible (our 5th floor unit is close to the wide doored elevator) and parking is reserved for handicap access at the main entrance. The great thing about Ocean Village is how little time you have to spend in your car: everything is right there for a great getaway!

Home in Paradise
We arrived for our three-month stay, and immediately fell in love with the condo. Beautiful views in the morning and evening and afternoon. Short walk to the beach. Short walk to the beautiful pool with tiki bar. Found it difficult to leave the property because of the beauty and comfort of being in this lovely place. We did it all: tennis, bicycling, bocce ball, golf, swimming, walking, taking in the beautiful flowers, the lovely landscaping, dining, talking with visitors and residents, enjoying live music, fresh fish daily, gourmet restaurants, laughing, smiling, napping.... Grand kids loved it, friends who visited loved the privacy of their own suite. It was a dream come true. Fully stocked with all the amenities. We wanted for nothing. We stayed 92 days, of which 89 were sunny and warm. We spent most days outside on the property and felt we were on vacation everyday. It couldn't have been nicer.
relaxed, comfortable vacation stay
We arrived from a very fancy design hotel on Miami Beach so the comfortable, warm and personal ambiance of RudonCondo was an instant delight as it is clearly a home. Roomy, breezy, well laid out floor plan furnished in soft blues and sea greens. Great to have the two bathrooms: his and hers! And an amazing amount of closet space throughout the unit. In hindsight we could have carried along far fewer clothes as the washer/dryer combo works so quickly! Admittedly, with so many cute and varied restaurants in the vicinity, we did not use the fully implemented kitchen all that much, however we truly enjoyed the ice cube maker for our relaxed evenings on the balcony. A cooled bottle, some nuts, a good book and the sunsets: what a perfect place to relax! The overhead fans in every room kept us comfortable indoors.
We ran out of time to use everything that the Ocean Village community has to offer. Loved the beach, the pools, the Tiki Bar, the beautiful grounds. Hutchinson Island too has lots of fun: the jetty, sea museum, on into downtown Fort Pierce where we had a great time at the Farmer’s Market, some good up market eateries and the Sunrise Theatre.
It was with sadness that we departed. We hit yet another (one more-!) of Florida’s incredible outlets on our drive down to Miami Airport which prompted buying an extra suitcase for all the great buys!
O yes, we'll be back!

First and foremost, the Ocean Village ambience. After a good morning's wander along the tide line of the Atlantic, we returned via a stairway over the dunes to the swimming pool (ample, clean, quiet, beautiful). There we happened upon a small group of gracious Golden Girls floating around like bobbers on a fishing rod and exchanging the latest news with fellow swimmers. Younger couples with preschool offspring completed the multi-generational aquatic set. The pool's Tikibar poured us cocktails at a friendly price.
Outside of the guarded gateway to this resort, the good life continued. Three minute's drive down Ocean Drive took us to Archie's, an indoor-oiutdoor, Pirate themed establishment. Rugged bikers joined young love birds and happy families celebrating Mother's Day in listening to a live rock combo. This is the way things go on South Hutchinson Island. Our spirits rose even higher while enjoying a taco on a supremely located terrace at water's edge (the bar named 'On the Edge') as a few dolphins paraded ino the lagoon. A great attraction is 'Captain Bob's Place', located at the end of the causeway connecting mainland en island, both for fresh oysters and the Captain's exhibition of 17th century coins and precious stones, treasure he once gathered from a Spanish wreck off the Bahamas while still on active sea duty. Surprising that this figure straight out of Hemingway, merely appearing from time to time to keep an eye on the new owners of this easy-going restaurant, is as yet not widely known. Perhaps this is due to the fact that Hutchinson Island itself is as yet an undiscovered gem.
Returning from all this hustle and bustle was the moment that we truly realized how marvelous the condo is. We have seen a great deal of Florida to date but never experienced an accomodation five times more spacious than (for example) a Holiday Inn hotel room: it is comfortably cool (airco and overhead fans) in stead of dependent on a loudly bellowing airco blasting a cold hurricane over your Double Queen accommodation. The condo has a spacious living room and a well-equipped kitchen, with a panoramic view of both sea and golf course, two bedrooms and two bathrooms, a magnificant lanai for as the sun sets and rises, and all this for a price significantly lower than (for example) Holiday Inn likes to extract from your credit card. So, five stars from us.
O yes, we almost forgot: you can always park your car in the shade.

We had a very relaxing time at Ocean Village and a great stay at the condo. Great home away from home, not the standard hotel room but a cozy place with a homey feel. After a day of sun and sea wonderful to sit on the porch and watch the sunset. We would love to come back sometime
Fantastisch appartement, leuke omgeving
Eerst iets over de sfeer in Ocean Village. Na een ochtendwandeling langs de vloedlijn van de Atlantic kwamen we via een duintrapje terug bij het zwembad (groot, schoon, rustig, mooi). Daar zagen we een groepje golden girls een ochtend lang door het koele water drijven als dobbers aan een vishengel terwijl ze vrolijk het laatste nieuws doornamen. Een paar gezinnetjes met jonge kids brachten de gemiddelde leeftijd weer fors omlaag. De zwembad-Tikibar schonk sympathiek geprijsde cocktails.
Buiten de bewaakte entree van dit resort was het leven ook niet gek. Op drie minuten (met de auto) vonden we een semi-openlucht piratenuitspanning aan de Ocean Drive, genaamd Archie's. Ruige bikers, verloofde stelletjes en families die moederdag vierden zaten daar vrolijk door elkaar naar een rockbandje te luisteren. Zo gaan de dingen op South Hutchinson Island. Nog beter werd ons humeur toen we vanachter een taco bij een meesterlijk gelegen terrasje aan de lagune (een bar genaamd On The Edge) een paar dolfijnen langs zagen paraderen. Grote attractie van Captain Bob's Place aan de voet van de grote brug waren niet alleen de verse oesters maar ook de binnen uitgestalde 17e eeuwse munten en edelstenen die de captain zelf in zijn actieve zeemansleven heeft opgedoken uit een Spaans wrak bij de Bahama's. Vreemd dat deze Hemingway-achtige figuur, die alleen nog af en toe de nieuwe eigenaren van zijn mooie en lekker informele restaurantje komt controleren, niet veel beroemder is geworden dan hij nu is. Het zal er wel mee te maken hebben dat heel Hutchinson Island een soort verborgen edelsteen is.
Toen we al die drukte gehad hadden en we kwamen weer terug bij de condo, realiseerden we ons wat een fantastisch appartement dit eigenlijk is. We hebben heel wat van Florida gezien maar nergens vind je een onderkomen dat vijf keer de afmeting heeft van een gemiddelde Holiday Inn hotelkamer, comfortabel gekoeld is in plaats van met een loeiende gevel-airco in je nek, een forse huiskamer heeft en een goed geoutilleerde keuken, panoramisch uitzicht heeft op zeewater en golfbaan, twee slaapkamers en twee badkamers heeft, een magnifieke veranda voor de stille uurtjes en dat allemaal voor een prijs die heel wat lager ligt dan wat (bijvoorbeeld) een gemiddelde Holiday Inn graag van je creditcard aftrekt.Kortom, vijf sterren wat ons betreft en o ja, we vergaten nog dat je hier altijd in de schaduw kan parkeren.

Historic downtown Fort Pierce has been lovingly restored in recent years. Its shops and restaurants are varied and up market. There is a wonderful farmers' market every Saturday with great food, crafts and live music. The Sunrise Theatre has excellent music and theatre programming.
Fort Pierce and Ocean Village are both truly a golfer's paradise. There is a 9 hole par 3 course and a putting green on the premises (our condo looks out over the 4th green), and just down the street in Fort Pierce is the famous, award-winning Fairways 18 hole course and club. Complete with pro shop, workshops, restaurant and bar. Best part: no membership required at Fairways. You book your tee off reservation online!
And when one of you golfs, and the other does not, the beaches, shopping, tennis, bocce and other activities allow you to go your separate ways and join up again at Ocean Village for a relaxing glass of wine on the porch. Enjoy the great view and magnificent sunsets!
