About Nancy Gizzi

My husband, Carmine is from New Jersey. He is retired from the hair business, and does many of the renovations and 'fixes' at our home and condo. He is also an avid golfer. I grew up in Pittsburgh and am a speech language pathologist. I work for a hospital system. We live nearby in Cape Coral, Florida with our dog, Tia, and our cat, Jesse James.

Nancy Gizzi purchased this condo in 2004

Why Nancy Gizzi chose Fort Myers Beach

We bought our condo in 2004, the year of Hurricane Charley. My mother had rented at Estero Beach & Tennis so we knew we would have lovely sunsets and fun bike riding. We were familiar with the sand sculpting contest in November. My husband Carmine did most of the renovation himself. I had the fun of fully decorating the condo. Now in 2013, we have bought some new furnishings and redecorated. We love the the beautiful views from the condo balcony. We enjoy the beach walks and never know what we might discover. And we have had wonderful people stay at 'Rocky's' condo, named after Mom. They treat it like their home.

What makes this condo unique

There is a spaciousness about Estero Beach and Tennis because of the large front lawns and landscaping. Our beach front condo offers open air balcony views from the 6th floor. We can enjoy the beauty of a quiet beach and birds. And nearby there is a marina as well as convenient stores and shops.

Nice condo in South Fort Myers Beach. Shopping Plaza in walking distance across the street with several restaurants. The condo was well furnished, the complex had a nice pool and all the people we met were very pleasant.

Beautiful property, quiet, clean and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for our honeymoon and we actually were married on the beach. The condo was clean, beautiful and very inviting. We loved the pool area and enjoyed sitting on the balcony watching the sunsets. Nancy was very easy to contact and great to work with, We are hoping to make this a yearly vacation and will definetly stay here again. Thank you so much for making our special time perfect.

Perfect beach getaway

  • 5 of 5

This well-placed condo is perfect for a no-hassle getaway to the beach. The white sand beach is lovely, the balcony is wonderful for morning coffee and evening sunsets, and there are enough amenities nearby that there is no need for a car. The kitchen is equipped for cooks, but there are also restaurants close by. The condo itself is quiet, clean, bright, and comfortable. There is even beach gear for a "plug and play" holiday. The owners were very communicative and helpful. I hope to return again!
