Destination guide

Welcome to the lifestyles of the rich and famous

Hugging Florida's southern Gulf coast just north of posh Naples, one of the wealthiest cities in the country, lies chic Pelican Bay, a world of tennis, shopping, and nature preserves, all rolled into a quaint 3 square miles. Bordered by the protected tidal ponds and mangrove forests of Clam Bay, with pristine Gulf beaches on the other side, the town is an upscale retreat for visitors and locals alike. A Pelican Bay vacation rental surrounds you with countless conservation areas that are home to a wide array of wildlife and plenty of outdoor activities (just remember the sunscreen).

Things to do

Everything from big cats to even bigger swamps

For a true taste of local life, take in a show by the nationally recognized community theater company The Naples Players. Make sure to stop by the Naples Zoo and the Naples Botanical Garden while you're there. Art enthusiasts will want to set aside some time to visit the Baker Museum. For a one-of-a-kind nature experience, go see the only cougar species east of the Mississippi at the Florida Panther National Wildlife Refuge. Further afield, you can explore a unique world of wildlife on one of the world-famous swamp tours of Everglades National Park.


Experience the tropics without leaving the country

Your reward for booking a Pelican Bay vacation rental is a chance to experience one of the only tropical climates in the continental US. With warm winters and hot, humid summers, high temps range from the 70s to the 90s year round. Even in the coolest, driest months of December to February, highs are still in the mid to upper 70s, with lows potentially dropping into the 50s overnight. Summers are hot, humid, and rainy, with temps well into the 90s (and possibly the triple digits). Hurricanes are most prevalent in September and October, so check ahead.

Natural features

Wetlands, wildlife, and even more wetlands

Separating downtown Pelican Bay from the sandy beaches along the Gulf are the Clam Bay wetlands, a protected network of creeks, tidal ponds, and mangroves. Big cats roam free at the Florida Panther National Wildlife Refuge. And if you want swamps, you're in luck. Nearby Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary is home to cypress forests and marsh ecosystems. Further south is the mother of all swamps, Everglades National Park, where you can see endangered manatees and panthers, as well as countless bird, fish, mammal, and reptile species (and of course, those famous Florida gators).
