About Jeanne Elizardi

We were born and raised in New Orleans and have lived many other places in earlier years - Atlanta, Chicago, Boston, San Francisco but have always return home. After Katrina, I can't imagine living anywhere else except maybe more time in Destin which also has our heart and soul. My husband practices cardiology at a large clinic in New Orleans and I am a retired full time mother, retailer, volunteer devoted to helping bring back our beloved city of New Orleans. We are now the proud grandparents of 3 adorable girls, Scarlett, Eden Paige and Sofie. We are fortunate to have 2 of our 3 grown children and their families who have moved back home since Katrina who thoroughly enjoy their time in Destin, too.

Jeanne Elizardi purchased this condo in 2001

Why Jeanne Elizardi chose Florida North West

IT WAS PURE LOVE at first sight many years ago. We have been going to Destin since we married 41 years ago and watched it develop from a sleepy little village to an upscale resort town. A good friend's father had owned our condo since it was built in the early '80's and we would spend time there every year with our children when they were young and just loved it. We used to say if he ever put it on the market we wouldn't look any further and that is what happened. We were in the middle of a major renovation on our home in New Orleans and anxious to finish for our oldest son's wedding. We found out the condo was going on the market and bought it a few days later. It was truly an emotional decision and I doubt we would have bought anything else if it hadn't gone through. We would go there on weekends, leaving painters in our home in New Orleans and spend our time painting and making it our own. While painting, we would just stare at the gorgeous sunsets each night and wonder if we would ever tire of them, which we have yet to and still thrills us every night.

The panoramic view of that gorgeous water from every room just had us mesmerized. Twelve years later we are still smitten and so in love with our home there. We go for long weekends as often as we can and pack all of our children and grandchildren into there for the 4th of July weekend of front row seat fire works. As we have slowly refurnished, renovated and made it our own little haven, we still just marvel at the fact that it is ours. We love to share it with others who appreciate the serenity, peacefulness and beauty of the gorgeous aqua water, sunsets, sugar white sandy private beach, birds flying overhead and boats going by. You can even spot dolphins jumping from time to time. The balcony is like a huge play pen for the younger children who are thoroughly entertained. It is a magical spiritual place to be is all that I can say.

What makes this condo unique

It is all about the view, the water, serenity and sunsets. We are in the East Pass jetty area which is the best of both worlds. Our home is very comfortable and as you can see by the 43 glowing 'reviews' on our website of people who have spent time there, it is a little piece of paradise. It is our home away from home and we leave it like that with all the comforts and amenities you could want. We both love to cook and live to eat, being from New Orleans so our gourmet kitchen has every gadget, appliance, spice and tool you might desire. It is a well stocked kitchen beautifully renovated with granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances.

Our over-sized balcony stretches the length of the condo including both bedrooms, living and dining area which seats 6 comfortably with a Weber BBQ grill. You will be mesmerized and entertained by watching the boats go by, the birds flying overhead, dolphins jumping and the sunsets which are like a different painting every night.

Come enjoy our little piece of paradise. We are in a quiet remote area with a private beach only used by those in our building but just 2 miles from all that you will need or want - grocery stores, drug stores, restaurants and shopping. We love to share it with those who value and appreciate the peace and serenity away from the action but have everything just a short distance away.

The condo was very clean and we absolutely loved the decor!

  • 5 of 5

Having the boat slip so conveniently located just across the street made for many easily accessible fishing trips! The guys were in harbor heaven! Beautiful scenery watching the boats coming and going from the front deck! The pool was very nice and if there was a way to bring the hottub home with us, we would have. Very relaxing!

The Perfect Spot

  • 5 of 5

June 10, 2017

You don’t have to look any further. This spot has all you could ask for – a beautiful view, easy access to the beach, a front row seat to the Thursday night fireworks, and only one flight up from the pool. The beds are super comfortable, the kitchen is well equipped, and the laundry room, tennis courts, and exercise room are located just across the hall. The maintenance guys are very helpful as are the owners.

The covered garage makes it easy to load and unload without concern for the weather. Easily a five star experience.

It would have been perfect if there had been a security guard to enforce the pool and hot tub being closed after 10pm.

Owner's Response: Hi Mary, I'm so sorry you were inconvenienced and bothered by those in the hot tub after it was closed. I will definitely make sure my future guests know that they are welcome to call me at any time to call the security or call themselves if anyone is not honoring the closing time or call themselves. Holiday Isle has security guards to handle any situation that arises. Fortunately, this doesn't happen often and I am so sorry that it did while you are there. Thanks so much for letting me know. I hope it won't keep you from returning some time in the future.

Once again we had a fantastic stay here in Destin. Waterview Towers is a fantastic place to stay, everyone is friendly and it isn't so crowded. This particular condo is the best in the building, for that matter the best in all of Holiday Isle! Its location in the buliding is so convienant and the views from the balcony are priceless. The condo is furnished so nicely.

We always hate to leave. Thanks Jeanne for another wonderful family vacation!!!

Very Relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great experience! The condo is so cute and has beautiful views. While it's not on the gulf directly, you have a beautiful view of it. The condo sits on the harbor, which is filled with beautiful boats and dolphins. To get to the gulf to swim is just a walk away. There is a place to swim in the harbor too. The beds were very comfortable and overall the condo was clean. We would definitely stay here again and recommend Destin!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your glowing review, Beth. I am thrilled you enjoy your time in our home away from home. We aren't on the harbor, but in the East Pass/Jetty area with an incredible view of the Gulf. The harbor is behind us across the street where our marina is located. I think we have the best of both worlds with our private beach and the western exposure and beautiful sunsets from our balcony and a panoramic view of the water. As you stated, one can swim from our private beach or walk past a few buildings to the wide open beach and Gulf. I hope you will keep us in mind next time you are planning a trip to paradise!
