Orchid Bay Entrance 2About Orchid Bay:

One of the most desirable communities in Palm City, Orchid Bay (also known as Captain’s Creek) lies just south of the new Palm City Veteran’s Memorial Bridge off of Mapp Road.  This gated community of 153 home-sites (including only two vacant lots at this time) enjoys spacious private lots of at least a ½ acre with a few properties residing on over 1 acre sites.  This planned community was developed by the Tartan land Company in the early 1990’s and all homes are individually constructed by the lot owner’s builder of choice.  Consequently this is not a “cookie cutter” community by any means.
