Description of the Rotonda West vacation home rental
Freshly painted and floored 3 br / 2 ba furnished pool home. Enjoy your stay in a quiet neighborhood on a canal. What a view from the family room! Look out over the screened lanai and pool area. The canal runs through the back yard. Lots of different birds capture your eye.
This home is very comfortable with some antiques as well as current amenities.

Area Info
History -

Rotonda West is an unincorporated, deed-restricted community situated in west Charlotte County, Florida. It is an unusual subdivision, in that it is shaped like an incomplete wagon wheel. A closed, fresh-water canal system surrounds the outside of the "wheel" and travels inside each of the pie-shaped wedges forming the subdivisions of the development. A protected wetland to the south prevents development of that area. Alligators, bald eagles, great blue herons, egrets, and many other birds and animals inhabit the area.

The oldest and most-developed subdivision, Oakland Hills, once sported Ed McMahon as a home owner. In 1973, the inaugural edition of a television special called Superstars, featuring athletes from different sports competing in various events, was filmed in Rotonda. What is now the community center was a bowling alley. A local track was where the track and field events were held.

Although the area struggled for a while during the real estate bust period of the 1980s, in 2005 it was one of the hottest areas to build in, with development escalating in nearly all of the sections and several new golf courses.

Many of the homeowners are seasonal snowbirds from northern states and only live in the area part-time during the winter.

While the area is at risk of flooding from storm surge, it is located towards the center of the Cape Haze peninsula and hasn't flooded in recent memory. During Hurricane Charley in 2004, it was located on the left front quadrant of the storm, and although the eyewall came within a couple of miles of the area, most homes escaped major damage. Several large trees were downed, and many shingle roofs were damaged by winds. Quite a few pool cages and screened-in porches were blown down or damaged, but few houses sustained more than relatively minor damage. After Charley, most of the area had power back on in 13 hours, due in no small part to the fact that utilities such as power, phone, and cable are all run underground. Several overhead main feeder lines supply power to transformers in the area, but they were quickly repaired.

In 2005 Hurricane Wilma travelled south of the development, and because of the underground utilities, the area never lost power, even though many surrounding areas did.

Center of Rotonda -

There is a large park inside the center of Rotonda West with a playground, tennis courts, and a walking path.

Weather

Located in southwest Florida on the Gulf Coast, the weather usually stays relatively mild. In the summer, it's not uncommon for temperatures to get into the mid-90's, but this is tempered by sea breezes from the Gulf. At night in the summer, temperatures quickly drop to the low to mid 70's. In the winter, hard freezes are rare, but occasionally occur. It's more common to have frost on the ground briefly in pre-dawn hours, but it melts shortly after sunrise. This usually only happens 2 or 3 times during the winter. Temperatures average 50 - 70 degrees during the winter. On a sunny winter day, it's rare for the temperature to stay below 50 degrees for long.

Weather-
Summer thunderstorms are not uncommon. Florida is known as the lightning capital of the world. The dry season is in the spring
