Area Information

Rotonda West

Situated inland of the beautiful, warm, blue/green waters of the Gulf of Mexico and its chain of islands, Rotonda is located mid-way between Sarasota and Fort Myers with excellent road and air links. As the name suggests, it is built in a circular layout. There is a good mix of permananent residents and visitors in this pleasant and peaceful community.


There are five golf courses, four operated by Rotonda Golf and Country Club and one by Pinemoor Golf Club. The community is built around some 30 miles of picturesque canals, lakes and ponds. These and the neighbouring reserves are also the home of many species of birds and wildlife. Fishing and boating opportunities abound. The more energetic can run, cycle or enjoy a  walk in a quiet, safe neighbourhood, on or off-road. Tennis courts are available for use free-of-charge at two locations, one floodlit.


A nature-lover's paradise - Rotonda is a desginated bird sanctuary. Many exotic and beautiful birds call Rotonda West home. This has inspired us to name our property Stork's Watch. Nearby recreation facilities, trails, state parks, beaches, theaters, sporting events, and fine restaurants are available for all to enjoy.

Further Information about the community can be found at the Rotonda West Community website
