Apartments and Emphasis on Security Bring Retirees to Age-Restricted Community in New Haven, Connecticut

Located on a ridge in a wooded setting roughly five miles outside of New Haven, Connecticut (population 600,000 and home to Yale University) is Bella Vista, an attractive apartment community with more than 1,400 apartments in five tall buildings.   This large complex is open to anyone age 55 or over, although some of the apartments have income eligibility requirements.  Rents are quite affordable, and all general resident services are included in the monthly rental price.



Apartments come in one bedroom units, two bedroom units and efficiencies, and each one has wall to wall carpeting, lots of closet and cabinet space and a private balcony.  Units do not have washers/dryers, but each floor has a laundry area.    All utilities (except phone) are included in the monthly price, and leases are for 12 months.  Good credit and an excellent past resident history are required for all rentals.   Visit for more information and to inquire about income requirements for some of the units.  Well-behaved pets are welcome, although there are breed and size restrictions.

Bella Vista skews to an older demographic, and security is taken seriously.  The New Haven Police Department has a substation on the property, and the grounds are monitored by closed circuit television.  The parking areas are monitored, and the lush grounds are patrolled 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  Each apartment has an emergency alarm system in the bedroom(s) and bath.

Meals are not provided by Bella Vista, but many other services are located on-site (and there are community groups that will provide meals to residents if needed).   A deli, a bank, a food market, a library, a pharmacy, a beauty salon and several medical clinics, including HeartCare Associates of Connecticut and the Fair Haven Medical Group, are on-site.  These services are not included in the rent, but use of the recreation center, involvement in organized social events/leisure activities and use of gardening plots are included.   

The community organizes trips, block parties, educational programs and fund raisers, and resident service coordinators welcome new residents, advocate for residents, provide dispute resolution, services mediate family conferences and offer guidance and referrals for those considering assisted living.

Panoramic views greet residents as Bella Vista overlooks the Quinnipiac River, the New Haven skyline and a golf course.  New Haven is home to shopping, theaters, museums, the Yale campus, restaurants and just about anything else one could need, including the prominent Yale University-affiliated Yale-New Haven Hospital.  The Yale Medical Group, comprised of 800 physicians on staff at the Yale School of Medicine, offers advanced care to patients in more than 100 specialties, including organ transplantation, minimally invasive surgery, diabetes treatment and cutting-edge cancer therapies.

New Haven weather is not ideal but not intolerable.  Summer temperatures can reach the 90s, and humidity averages 70%.   The city receives 4 to 5 inches of precipitation per month, some of which is snow from November to March.  Winter temperatures are generally in the 20s and 30s.  The sun shines about 50% of the time.



Bella Vista is owned and managed by Carabetta Management, a well-respected company with nearly 60 years of experience in operating affordable family and senior housing.  They have properties throughout Connecticut and Massachusetts.
