A Bit of Rotonda (Rotonda West) History

The communities that make-up the various parts of Rotonda, also known as Rotonda West, were platted beginning in 1969.  Most of the land was purchased by the Cavanagh Leasing Company from William and Alfred Vanderbilt and had been part of the huge 2V Ranch that the Vanderbilts had owned on the Cape Haze peninsula in Charlotte County.   The West in Rotonda's name came from the original plan to build two Rotonda developments, one on the east coast of Florida and one on the west coast.  Only Rotonda West was actually developed.

Over the years since 1969, several companies have been involved with Rotonda development and many of the original plans have evolved.  For those interested in understanding Rotonda's history, Jack Alexander's book Rotonda The Vision and the Reality provides an extensive review.

In recent years, Rotonda real estate values rose very rapidly.  As in many other parts of the U.S., 2006 brought a slow-down to the volume of sales activity in Rotonda West and prices have dropped from earlier peak levels.  Buyers will find a large selection of available lots and homes across a broad range of price points.  Rotonda lots now sell for around $12,000 and up.  Rotonda homes are selling from under $100,000 to over $500,000.

Property prices in Rotonda and across the Cape Haze peninsula are very attractive compared to nearby communities like Sarasota (to our north) and Naples (to our south).  Rotonda and the surrounding Cape Haze peninsula offer excellent amenities and a quiet, laid-back lifestyle.  Read-on for additional information on Rotonda communities and on Rotonda lots and homes currently on the market.

Rotonda Map, Amenities, and Communities

As shown in yellow on the map above, within the circle that the name Rotonda suggests there are seven distinct communities:  Oakland Hills, Pebble Beach, Pinehurst, Broadmoor, Long Meadow, White Marsh and Pine Valley. The eighth wedge of the "pie" is an environmental preserve. The Rotonda West Homeowners Association enforces deed restrictions within these communities.  (A link to the association is provided on the right side of this page.)  There are both new and older homes and condominiums available "inside the circle", with several builders actively building new properties.  Lots are also available for you to "custom build" your new home.

Many of the homes, townhouses and condominiums inside the circle open onto the network of fresh water canals within the community or onto one of the community golf courses. Rotonda is home to five different golf courses:  Rotonda Hills, Rotonda Palms, Long Marsh, Pinemoor and the Links at Cape Haze.

Outside the circle (and shown in gray on the map above), the communities of Rotonda Heights, Rotonda Lakes, Rotonda Shores, Rotonda Sands, Rotonda Springs, Rotonda Villas and Rotonda Meadows are part of the larger Rotonda area.  These neighborhoods are also dotted with lakes and fresh water canals.  (Click the links on the right side of this page to visit the property owners association websites for many of these areas.)

To date there has been very limited home construction in the Meadows, Villas, and Springs areas and not all utilities are yet available for many lots there.

A typical Rotonda home is 1300 to 3000 square feet with three bedrooms and two baths.  Many homes have pools and overlook canals or one of the golf courses.   Lot sizes vary by neighborhood, with a typical lot size inside Rotonda Circle being 80' x 120'.

Rotonda residents have quick access to excellent fishing and boating waters, with the Gulf of Mexico to the west and Charlotte Harbor to the east.  There are several nearby marinas and boat ramps.  There are also easily accessible Gulf beaches on Gasparilla Island and on Manasota Key.
