About Marilyn Leech

My husband and I grew up in the Midwest, but we have always loved the beach. We vacationed in Florida with our 3 children for the past 40 years and after staying at Estero Beach and Tennis Club for more than a decade, we decided to buy a condo there. We found one that had a great view, nicely appointed, and felt like 'home' -- so we purchased it. Since we can't spend all our time at the condo we decided to share our favorite place with others. We think of our condo as our 'home away from home' and are always thrilled when other people love it as much as we do. We invite you to find out why our place is so special to us and to all who have stayed there.

Marilyn Leech purchased this condo in 2005

Why Marilyn Leech chose South Island

Estero Beach and Tennis Club is a great condominium complex. It sits on 11 acres of well landscaped areas, tennis courts, heated pool, areas for sunning or shade, and plenty of parking. Unlike many condos on Estero Blvd., it sits back from the road. Another bonus with Estero Beach and Tennis Club is that it is on the South end of the beach, which is quieter and considerably less traffic. Yet, there are still plenty of restaurants and store close by. We think this is an ideal location for enjoying beach life at its best.

What makes this condo unique

Staying at the condo at Estero Beach and Tennis Club is the ultimate in relaxation. Every minute is enjoyable from the time you wake up and enjoy your cup of coffee on the balcony and watch the ships sail by till the time you pour a glass of wine and watch the sunset display its brilliant colors. Whether you are sitting on the balcony, swimming in the pool or walking the beach, each day is a gift to be cherished all year long.

Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We loved our Condo, everything that we needed for our stay was there. Marilyn has done a terrific job of making sure that you have beach chairs , umbrella and beach towels to use during the stay. The pool was also very nice. The view was awesome. There is a very nice shopping plaza across the street with a few nice restaurants that you can just walk to. The only thing that was a little disappointing was the access to the beach and they are in the process of dredging which made it hard to enjoy but everything else was very nice. We would stay there again and do recommend this property. Thanks Marilyn!

Owner's Response: So happy you enjoyed your stay. I am sorry about the dredging, but as you know that is done by the County. Hopefully, the inconvenience will be short lived and result in an even better beach. The dredging is being done so that the beach does not erode and will be enjoyable for years to come. We'd love to have you come back next year to an even better beach. Marilyn

Perfect romantic beach vacation

  • 5 of 5

A perfect romantic getaway! The view and the walks on the beach were gorgeous. Loved the beachy decor. Very comfortable, perfect size unit. Very clean and we'll equipped. Lots of great things to do in the area. Lots of restaurants and shops. Loved the Times Square area ! The $6 toll to Sanibel island was well worth it. Don't miss Ding Darling nature preserve there! It was awesome

Beautiful property with relaxing beaches, shells galore, and spectacular sunsets!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is perfect for two! The balcony offers incredible views throughout the day! We ate all of our meals at the table for 2 outside. The constant ocean breeze made it so comfortable! The condo is well equipped so you don't need to bring anything extra! The location is perfect with restaurants, shops, a post office, drugstore, medical walk in all right across the street and a big Publix market just a couple of miles away.
