The Good Life in the Buena Vida Estates Cottages: Amenities

Retirement living is not just about a good place to live. You deserve the kind of professional care and lifestyle offered by a continuing care retirement community (CCRC). A CCRC offers housing, health care, and social services to residents, and the peace of mind that you know where you will be regardless of medical or financial changes. Buena Vida Estates is the only CCRC in Brevard County, Florida. Our retirement community offers the active senior a wealth of programs. Whether you like to dance, want to show off your skills as a cardplayer, or wish to try something new, our community workshop has something to offer you.

Why Live in a Continuing Care Retirement Community?

CCRCs provide a wide variety of housing alternatives that are inclusive of independent and assisted senior living complete with skilled nursing services.[1] These facilities allow you to enjoy your retirement in a central location that provides for all your health and accommodation needs. Some of the benefits of this type of retirement community include the following.

Independence in Amazing Homes

The Cottages at Buena Vida are ideal for those who want to enjoy aging in place with lifetime care. Each home includes a two-car garage and large floor plan. You can also continue an independent lifestyle with the expansive dining room/great room, kitchen, and nearly 40-foot screened patio. Since our 65-plus community is all-inclusive, we handle everything from monthly utilities to all maintenance and even some meals.

No Home Maintenance

Maintaining your own home can become a bit of a task as you get older, but CCRCs are here to relieve you of that responsibility. These communities offer amenities like home and garden maintenance, dining services, and even transportation.[2] In addition to these, Buena Vida also provides 24/7 security to ensure your safety and peace of mind.

Lively Social Community

You can make lots of new friends in our community and engage in a wide range of events and activities. From a beautiful clubhouse with bar, grilling and aerobic lap pool, to a walking path, pickleball and Bocce ball, you will find lots to do at Buena Vida. Join a club or stay in shape with exercise classes. At Buena Vida, you can explore your interests and maybe even develop new ones.


CCRCs are all-inclusive homes. Once you move into your Cottage, you know that Buena Vida will provide what you need when you need it. You are assured that however your needs change, you will always have the assistance you require. You do not own these cottages, so when the time comes to move or downsize, you will not need to worry about your real estate or the timing of your move to another unit at Buena Vida.


The most important aspect of senior living in a CCRC is the peace of mind it affords you and your family. Your loved ones can go about their lives with the sense of relief that comes with knowing that you are being taken care of by professionals. Senior adults with health conditions can receive the care they need here at Buena Vida.

Amenities Offered in Our Community

Your social life is important to us. As such, we have a clubhouse with a fully functional gym where you can join your friends for light exercises and fitness classes if you are up for it. There is a heated pool where you can enjoy warm water night and day, so you can take a dip without worrying about getting chilled no matter the time of year.

Do you love engaging in games and active sports? We have something for you here. Our fully equipped bocce and pickleball courts will keep you on your feet and help you stay active while having all the fun you want.

While some people love sports, we know that others find gardening very therapeutic. Walk out of your back door and enjoy digging if you like.

For those lifelong learners, Buena Vida also offers continuing education classes in subjects like American history and music. If you’ve always wanted to write, try your hand at a creative writing class. Gather your friends together and discuss the latest bestseller in a book discussion group.

Awaken your inner artist and get inspired at a painting or woodworking class. Show off your new creation at an arts and craft show. Join the Buena Vida Chorus and share your beautiful singing voice with everyone.

If you’re a spiritual person, know what we offer activities such as bible study as well as Catholic and Episcopal services. We also provide church vespers services.
