    Belle Vista is a cozy home with 10 spacious bedrooms,6 handicap-equipped bathrooms, 2 dining areas inside, and a great screened patio for activities and casual dining. The Key West style home has an inviting front porch with white wicker furniture, a sunny patio with umbrella tables and chairs, and cheerful flowers to welcome out guests and residents. The fenced vegetable garden in back, tended by the residents and staff, includes tomatoes, herbs, black-eyed peas, lima beans, eggplant, radishes, scallions, and gorgeous sunflowers. We have a great time with our winter garden and also enjoy the summer garden. Music adds a lively tempo to our weekly activities with various musicians who entertain us and create sing-alongs! Our annual OKTOBERFEST brings hundreds of friends and relatives for German beer,wine and brats with music provided by German accordions and banjos in full costumes. We stay healthy by enjoying great home-cooked meals, vegetables from the garden, and citrus fruit from our trees. Daily walks and our exercise routine keep us healthy and happy. We enjoy fun outings to various local restaurants, to the farmers market, shopping at the mall, luncheon cruises on the intercoastal waterway, and trips to museums and aquariums. The residents maintain a cageful of Zebra Finches and keep our freshwater aquarium clean and the fish well fed. We are truly a happy, loving family with a great sense of adventure and twice weekly "happy hour" with music from the '40's and '50's. Come sing along with Glen Miller!!
    All genders welcome
