About Kathy and Dino DelGaudio

We both were born in New York and currently live on Long Island. I am a psychologist and my wife is a realtor. Like most, we live busy lives and cherish the time we spend together doing the things we like best. We have enjoyed sailing together for many years and now spend much of our time on the tennis court. Sea Oaks has become our favorite place to unwind and live life to the fullest!

Dino & Kathy, Lynbrook, New York

Kathy and Dino DelGaudio purchased this villa in 2010

Why Kathy and Dino DelGaudio chose Vero Beach

We both love the water. Here at Sea Oaks we are steps from beautiful ocean beaches and the intracoastal waterway. When we first drove into this gated community we were struck by the beauty of the lush vegetation and pristine surroundings. The amenities offered here are second to none. The Beach Club and restaurant overlooking the Atlantic would have sealed the deal. However, the 16 impeccably maintained Har-Tru tennis courts, full service pro shop and clubhouse make this location a dream come true.

What makes this villa unique

My wife and I try to never miss a sunrise at Sea Oaks. We awaken with the birds singing, walk steps to the Beach Club and pour ourselves a cup of perfectly brewed coffee which is awaiting us (gratis). We watch as the sun comes up majestically over the ocean and usually lights up a few fair weather, puffy clouds which sit out over the horizon. A brisk walk on the sandy beach usually follows where we will say hello to a few like-minded souls. Upon returning to our villa we can faintly pick up the wonderful sound of tennis balls being hit. After a light breakfast, we are on the courts in short order. Following a few sets of tennis we often will swim in our private community pool (just steps from our lanai) and follow this with some relaxing time in the hot tub. We love to walk and ride bicycles (two are ready for your use).

We will sometimes take a quick tour of our community and stop for awhile by the marina to look for sea life. The days can always be filled with the activities we most love. We also find that sometimes doing nothing at all fits the bill perfectly.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We both enjoyed our stay at your tennis villa. This was an opportunity for two brothers to get away, bond, and enjoy all that Sea Oaks has to offer. Since we are both N.Y. Mets fans we visited Spring training at Port St. Lucie which was an easy drive from Vero Beach. Your unit was very nicely furnished and offered us some great "down time" from all of our activities. As you advertised, your location is steps from the ocean, beautiful pools, and some nice tennis courts. We plan to return but next time with our wives. They will love it here!

A very comfortable and pleasant stay at Sea Oaks!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time visiting Sea Oaks Beach and Tennis Community and we were totally impressed with the environment and our stay at your tennis villa condo. The condo was nicely equipped with all the essentials and features to guarantee a positive experience. We especially enjoyed sitting out in the large screened in porch overlooking the lush greenery and live oaks! The condo unit was also convenient to all the amenities of the resort community. What a perfect way to relax and enjoy the best of life in Florida!!

Thank you! Judy and Marc

Beautiful beach!

  • 5 of 5

We began every morning with a walk on the beach at sunrise! The beach is beautiful here. We saw Pelicans feeding every morning, evidence of sea turtle coming on beach many mornings, and dolphins feeding one morning! Many evenings were spent the same way. The villa was great--just what we wanted. We were able to cook meals when we wanted to stay in and the Internet was very fast for streaming movies. There is a lot to explore in the area and great restaurants. We had a wonderful vacation!

Tropical lush Beach and Tennis club

  • 5 of 5

Started week long vacation on lanai- in pajamas- sipping coffee ( first cup gratis with well stocked rental). The condo had warm Mediterranean colors under heavily canopied trees that I found restful from the blazing Floridian sun. The description from other reviewers is "spot on" as far as the steps from the private pool and Jacuzzi (shared amongst the Tennis Village condos) and easy flat 10 minute walk to club complex beachside with sea turtle nests. The club complex and beach frontage is lovely: pool for dipping, bar for refreshment, and dining if you wish to have a quick lunch poolside or dinner either adjacent terrace or inside newly remodeled clubhouse. Ended vacation with lost computer bag which owner addressed to resolve quickly and with security. Thank you for a wonderful week-
