City Guide

Pelican Bay
Originally called Clam Bay, the town name was changed to the avian-oriented Pelican Bay in 1974.
Originally called Clam Bay, the town name was changed to the avian-oriented Pelican Bay in 1974.

Pelican Bay is a small community in Collier County, Florida. With a population of a little more than 5,600 residents, it is located along the shore on the west coast of the Sunshine State, on the Gulf of Mexico. It is considered a part of the Naples-Marco Island metropolitan area. It has a small land area of 3.4 square miles, making it an ideal location to settle down. Pelican Bay was purchased as land in 1972 and targeted for development that would have destroyed much of its natural beauty. Known for its acres of mangrove trees, development proceeded but with a plan to preserve its natural resources, and its mangrove forest was designated a natural resource protection area by the county.

Moving to Pelican Bay

The population of Pelican Bay has grown slowly but steadily. The median house price tends to be higher than the state average, as does the household income, but don't let this deter you. Unlike a real pelican, Pelican Bay won't swallow you whole! This is a very desirable place to live, given the warm climate and proximity to beaches, among its many other attractions. Schools in the area tend to have very strong ratings, and rank well above the state average in most categories. The average temperature is approximately 74 degrees, with hot summers and moderate winters, making it an ideal location for year 'round living. The property tends to move quickly, so doing a thorough search is essential.

Getting started

Real estate comes in all varieties from condos for rent to home rentals. When looking at condos, make sure to inquire about the amenities, which in Pelican Bay often includes great options such as pools, recreation centers, and other outdoor activities. When looking at Pelican Bay rentals homes, take a drive through the neighborhood and become familiar with the area. You may even make a few new friends to help you settle in! It's possible to find a duplex for rent, which can be a more affordable option without having to live in a large apartment complex. Furnished apartments make moving in easy, but they tend to go fast, so snatch one up if you like it.

If an apartment is the goal, it's best to use either an online apartments locator or a local real estate agent. Since Pelican Bay is one of the more desirable places to live in, a local agent may be needed to ensure that your search gives you the most options to choose from. Sizes range from a 1 bedroom apartment for rent, all the way up to 3 and 4 bedroom units. Finding a home for rent is also much easier with help from an agent. But make sure to look in local shops and supermarkets for flyers and magazines which also list available rentals.

Writing down important features is a helpful starting point. This will narrow down the search and save time by focusing on those places which best meet your needs. Finding the right place takes a combination of preparation, diligence, and an open mind. But is all worth it when you find a great location.

Signing on the dotted line

Before moving in, there is usually paperwork to be signed. Take some time to read through all the agreements very carefully, in order to make sure you know the rights and responsibilities required. Many rentals require both first and last months rent up front, and a refundable security deposit that is returned when leaving. Some will also require and identity check and credit check, and is a standard part of the process. Once the paperwork is complete then it is time to move in.
