What Residents say about living at Desoto Towers:

"Live it....Love it!"--Vearie


1. We are located near many churches of many denomination.

2. There are two major hospitals, an abundance of doctors in every specialty, and many Walgreen and CVS stores.

3. There are several Publix stores, Winn Dixie and Aldi for food shopping and you can also fill prescriptions.

4. There is a renovated movie theater on Cortez called Regal Oakmont--with wide reclining seats featuring current movies.

As in any building of hundreds of people, you will get to meet the residents on your floor, in the elevator, by the mailbox, or walking from parking your car, taking a stroll or sitting on the rockers on our front porch.  The ambiance is warm and friendly.  You can be as social or private as you wish.  If you have a talent that you wish to contribute such as baking for the bake sale or being a floor captain or volunteering your services in other areas, it is appreciated."--Patti

I have lived here 26 years.  The atmosphere is really good--everybody's so nice!  Desoto Towers is a real winner! --Blythe

Eight years after becoming widowed, Desoto Towers was brought to my attention, and it appeared to be just what I was looking for.  To me, having an apartment here is like not living alone anymore, making new friends, and feeling safe.  My only regret is that I didn't know about this place sooner.--Nancy
