bay colony



Bay Colony is an exclusive community within Pelican Bay for the most discerning of tastes. A gracious perimeter wall embraces the Bay Colony community; a meticulously manicured entry replete with stately palm trees and luxuriant floral plantings leads to a sentry gate. There are a mix of luxurious condominiums, villas and grand estates inside this gated 200-acre oasis. The community is set amidst protected mangroves and Gulf Shoreline. Bay Colony, a vision culminating in an unsurpassed upscale community, preserved and enhanced in perpetuity by the Bay Colony Community Association.

BAY COLONY SHORES: Bay Colony Shores offers 75 home sites ranging in size from one-third to one-half acre. Reached via a Mediterranean-style bridge, grand estate homes rim crystal lakes. Brick-paved streets are complemented by quaint street lights reminiscent of the charming gaslight era. Colonnades of royal palms tower above meticulous landscaping artistry around every home and throughout the entire neighborhood. Lifestyles in Bay Colony Shores are a happy blend of elegant and laid-back, amid the placid waterfront atmosphere afforded by lakes. Although "The Shores" was named to reflect the lovely lakes in this neighborhood, it could just as well refer to the Gulf, because families living in Bay Colony Shores also enjoy the beach that is an integral part of Bay Colony's location.

ESTATES AT BAY COLONY: The Estates at Bay Colony Golf Club is an exclusive estate enclave and is home to a world class golf course. It is designed for those who prefer a secluded, secure environment with unrivaled access to a wealth of world class amenities. 75 magnificent estates are artfully woven throughout 280 acres of natural preserve, through which meanders a fabulous, stunningly natural championship golf course. No other gated community in Southwest Florida is as consistent in concept, with only large single family estates. Although The Estates at Bay Colony Golf Club has an extraordinary golf course with a beautiful clubhouse and award winning dining, this upscale enclave is definitely not a golf course community in the traditional sense. Golf is only one of many amenities available to its residents. Tennis and Beach Club activities are also part of the lifestyle. No other community provides its residents such easy access to the best of Naples while providing such a secure, tranquil setting of stunning natural beauty.

STRAND AT BAY COLONY: The Strand presents a secluded neighborhood of multi-million dollar homes with the Gulf of Mexico at their front doors. While adhering to a common architectural theme, each home is custom designed to meet not only the desires of the families who choose this lifestyle but also the strict governmental standards for beachfront residences. Accessible only after passing through a second electronically-operated security gate, The Strand offers the ultimate in exclusivity. The neighborhood reposes on a finger of land surrounded on all sides by the beauties of nature that is one of Southwest Florida's primary attractions. Behind The Strand lie 570 acres of conservation area, never to be developed, always to be enjoyed in its natural state. On the other side, of course, roll the eternal waters of the Gulf of Mexico.

VILLA LAPALMA: Villa La Palma is a cozy neighborhood consisting of only 22 villa style homes. There are three models to choose from with one and two story floor plans, ranging from 3,600 square feet to over 4,600 square feet. Each villa has an exclusive view of a beautiful, breathtaking water feature that lazily meanders behind each residence. Villa La Palma is located in Bay Colony which is a private, gated, beachfront community surrounded by estuary-lined mangrove forests and the pristine Gulf of Mexico.

​VISCAYA: Vizcaya at Bay Colony is surrounded by estuary lined mangrove forests and the pristine Gulf of Mexico. Vizcaya is the first neighborhood in Bay Colony to offer all of the pleasures of a custom designed private home with a full complement of exterior maintenance services, and private recreational amenities. Vizcaya at Bay Colony is a village of picturesque lakefront homes bordered by enchanting cobblestone walkways and quaint European style street lights. A romantic appeal is reflected in authentic architectural details such as cobblestone entry gardens with fountains or reflecting pools, decorative wrought metal accents, and rustic stucco finishes in subdued Mediterranean hues.
