See you on the beach

Meet Gloria Marrone, she and her husband were enchanted by our city so much so that they were inspired to move here, here is her story:

On a visit to my sister in Orlando, we fell in love with Cocoa Beach.  She took us to check out the beach and we stopped in at the original Ron Jon’s surf Shop in town.  In 2004, we moved permanently from NY.

Walking 4 miles a day, swimming in the condo pool and soaking in the Jacuzzi, keeps us busy.  Beside enjoying the year round good weather, i also like to read, travel around the world usually on a cruise and socialize with my neighbors & friends.  My husband plays golf twice a week with the boys.  See you on the beach.

    The Marrones were so enthralled with Cocoa Beach, they extolled its virtues to the family. They sold me (Gloria’s sister) their first apartment when they bought a bigger apartment for themselves. So another former New Yorker has found happiness in Cocoa Beach.

      Milt & I are so lucky to have you & Linda here with us at Stonewood in Cocoa Beach. How could we keep Cocoa Beach all to ourselves. We hope that you love it as much as we do.

    How excited I was to see my sister & brother-in-law featured on your site. I’m the sister who told them about the Condo they eventually bought. Gloria was basically responsible for bringing our other sister down to live in Cocoa Beach. I eventually moved over from Orlando to Cocoa Beach as who wouldn’t want to live here. So you see, in a way, Gloria was the catalyst in bringing all three sisters together to live in Cocoa Beach where there is always something going on here. We all ❤ Cocoa Beach!

    • Gloria Marrone April 10, 2017

      How wonderful that all three sisters ❤Cocoa Beach!

    Gloria and Milt…you are great neighbors and a wonderful example of an “immigrant” from New York to Cocoa Beach.

    • Gloria Marrone April 10, 2017

      To Carolyn & Ed,

      Milt & I are so happy living in Cocoa Beach because of neighbors like you and Ed. Thanks for replying.

    Love the comments about Cocoa Beach; what my high school classmate & his wife do not know is that Paradise is in Rhode Island living on Narragansett Bay. This is where I live.

    • Gloria Marrone April 10, 2017

      Hi Mike,

      Milt & I are thrilled that you have found Paradise in Rhode island. We are happy to say goodbye to snow and wind chill. Give our love to Carol & your sons.
