Our community was incorporated in 1983 as one of the first gated communities on Vero Beach’s north barrier island. Sea Oaks Beach and Tennis Club at inception comprised a two-story Georgian-style Beach Club, with adjoining pool, deck and gazebo, and a two-story plantation-style Tennis Club with 16 Har-Tru tennis courts. A tennis pavilion with stadium-like seating was added in 1990. The first residences were tennis villas near the Tennis Club and cottages designed to create an Old Florida look with their wood design and wide, screened porches. These were followed by oceanfront condos, river and lakeside villas, courtyard and courtside homes and river homes. The final dwellings constructed by 2007. In 2009, the facilities at the Tennis Club were enhanced through the construction of an adjacent Community Center housing a state-of-the-art fitness center. Spring of 2016 brought the re-opening of a completely renovated Beach Club – complete with new kitchens on both floors, a beautifully decorated formal dining room with adjacent bar with spectacular ocean views and an oceanfront, pool-side gazebo featuring a bar as well as increased seating for outdoor dining. Attention was turned to the tennis facilities in 2020, as plans for a complete modernization of the courts with underground watering and refurbishment of the surrounding landscaping were implemented despite the coronavirus pandemic.
Sea Oaks has its own personality: Situated on the Atlantic oceanfront in a lush setting of live oaks and sabal palms, our 614 residences are nestled in a lush setting of majestic live oaks and sabal palmettos. It’s where your neighbors ride bikes, play tennis, and swim. They are friendly and outgoing. Many are athletic, artistic or both. They all love the sun and the outdoors and enjoy getting together without pretentiousness.
