The staff at Bella Mar are like family. They are patient, cheerful and caring. The facility is quiet and peaceful. They have an amazing retractable roof over the courtyard so it can be used all year round. The residents get fresh air and have the joy of seeing the sky and trees from the courtyard. The residents eat in the dining room or in the courtyard. The rooms look out into the courtyard. Bella Mar is a loving and safe environment.... Read more

History, Rustic Charm, Gentle Care and Kindness

This is a unique assisted living for those with memory care needs. It is a small, boutique-y community with rich history and rustic charm. The utilization of outdoor space can only be done in sunny, southern California. The weather is perfect, the residents get plenty of sunshine. We experienced sincere and kind engagement going on and the residents have some terrific talents and stories to share that will warm your heart. The accommodations and care are expensive but it's Santa Monica and your front room is practically the Pacific Ocean. I love that the residents do their own thing and are very content. Lots of activities, big screen TV on patio and entertainment. This is a must see. Small rooms but bright and cheery.

LOVED the single room facing the bluffs. But there is little chance of getting that spot as the resident is happy and well there. Besides, pricey. But it would be my first choice of all if it were an option!
