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 South Island

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 a great location

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in this unit with my 2 teenage sons. The unit was perfect for the 3 of us. The unit was nicely decorated and well stocked with beach gear, linens, towels, kitchen ware, etc. The ability to separate the bedroom from the living area allowed for some privacy. The balcony had a full view of the beach. We would definitely stay here again.

This was a great place to stay. The view is outstanding. Accommodations very pleasing.

  • 4 of 5

I would stay here again. The place was clean and very bright and cheery. The only bad thing that I would say was the love seat needed to be replaced. The love seat did not set nice any longer. Other than that I would say this as 4.7 Stars

Amazing view

  • 4 of 5

Amazing view, quiet location, dolphins every day, we enjoyed them from balcony.

The only reason why is no 5 stars is no wi-fi. I hope next time we can enjoy with this piece of technology also.

Anyway I recommend it for everyone who wants relax and go away from busy cities. Thank you Nancy.
