Development on the island began in the 1970's and now includes approximately 1000 homes! Just as the island is protected by nature it is removed from curiosity seekers by a private entrance. Access is limited to a single guarded private bridge with 24-hour security and all roads are closed to the public. Quiet streets and boulevards make biking, jogging and conversation with your neighbors a pleasurable pastime.
Spanish explorers first discovered Ono Island in the 15th century who then named it "Orinoco" meaning "a place to paddle". According to legend, the island's shores hide treasures from the days when Blackbeard sailed the Gulf of Mexico. You'll find treasure too in this exclusive private island property!
Ono Island is nestled just north of Perdido Key, a natural barrier island in Florida. Ono is located at the mouth of Perdido Bay on the northern Gulf of Mexico. The island meanders for approximately 5.5 miles with its western tip no more than 500 yards from the gulf. Ono offers access to 350,000 acres of inland waterways, bayous and rivers. Boaters have direct access to both deep water fishing and back-country relaxation. Ono Island is just minutes from Pensacola (which lies to the East) and Gulf Shores (to the West). While convenient to dining, recreation, shopping and entertainment, Ono remains a world away from crowded tourist areas.
Strict zoning regulations and stringent architectural requirements ensure Ono Island's integrity and ambiance. Ono offers its very own water tower, fire station and private harbor. Whether on Old River, Bayou St. John, Ono Harbour, Intracoastal Waterway, an Ono Island canal or interior location, each luxurious home fits into the diversity of its surroundings.
