Vero Beach Florida Oceanfront Condos
When searching for an ocean front or ocean view condo, it helps to understand the terminology used (or misused!) to describe the actual location of Vero Beach Homes and Condos on the Barrier Island.
- Beachside - in Vero Beach should be on the Barrier Island and walking distance to the beach & river
- Ocean View - varies from distant obscured "peek at the ocean" to unobstructed view, typically "East of A1A"
- Ocean Front - Should be unobstructed view, no streets to cross for beach access.
It's best to look at a map, preferably "birds eye view" to get a clear picture of true location

Caledon Shores Condos - is an oceanfront complex located just north of Jaycee Park and the Vero Beach Boardwalk. The low rise (5 stories) building was built in 1981 and has a fitness center, community room with catering kitchen, a billiards room, library and oceanfront pool with beach access.

Vista Del Mar - is a 55+ beach side complex with an oceanfront pool and recreation center built in the early 1970's. Vista Del Mar is typical of the building occurring at that time. Ceilings are 8', balconies are enclosed and unit access is similar to a motel.
A more affordable option to Vero Beach Oceanfront condos are the high rise buildings just 7 miles south of Vero's Ocean Drive. Located in St. Lucie county, they are not subject to Indian River County's height restrictions. Although called "North Hutchinson Island", it is actually at the southern end of Vero's Orchid Island, just a quick drive down scenic A1A with no bridges to cross.
