Vanderbilt Beach affords a pleasant residential environment and extensive recreational resources. Our residents include many people who live and work in the area year round, retirees who live here  either full time or seasonally, and also the multitudes of visitors who flock here to enjoy the beautiful weather and our world-renowned beach and resorts. Vanderbilt Beach is now considered to be one of the finest communities in southwest Florida, if not the country.  The Vanderbilt Beach Residents Association is dedicated to preserving the quality of life that we all enjoy.

Work on Vanderbilt Beach Road

Many of our members have been asking about the road work along Vanderbilt Beach Road from Hammock Oak west to Vanderbilt Drive.  This is from our Commissioner, Andy Solis:
“The project is the addition of bike lanes on either side of Vanderbilt Beach Road. There have been many requests for this. There are also fiber optic cables being buried on the south side. It is NOT a widening of Vanderbilt Beach Road to 4 lanes. Those rumors are not true. Please let everyone know.”
