Lifestyle options at Belvedere Island range from quaint cottages to breathtaking water and marsh front homes along the South Newport River. The community is divided into six neighborhood areas each with a unique personality and covenants defining the size and types of homes that are acceptable.  There are a total of 238 lots with about half with homes, of which half are full time residents.  The makeup of the community is diverse with a full range from retirees to young couples.  Below is a small sampling of the types of homes on the Island.

Life should be really simple,
and we insist on keeping it that way
