About Randal Lemke

Retired CEO living in Falls Church, VA and on Marco Island, FL. My wife and I retired in 2013 and are spending time traveling and at our condo on Marco. We are boaters and enjoy the marina in front of our condo as well as the great beaches where we can walk, swim, shell, read and relax on some of the widest beaches I have ever been on other than in Australia.

Randal Lemke purchased this Condo in 2013

Why Randal Lemke chose Marco Island

We fell in love with the Esplanade at first sight. We were on Marco looking at a boat to purchase and take back to the Chesapeake Bay. We saw the Esplanade and stopped for a bite to eat and a drink. From there on it was clear that this was a place we wanted to live. To have a great marina, waterfront views, restaurants and store to walk to was a great appeal. Being close to Marco's wonderful beaches topped it all off. Finally, a friend closed the deal when he said the average winter temperature on Marco was 6 -10 degrees F warmer in the winter than Sarasota and Tampa. We have not been disappointed.

What makes this Condo unique

You get the best of both worlds in great access to beaches, waterfront living, and walking distance to all the restaurants and shoppes you need.

                                                                  Outstanding Vacation Rental

                                                                  Carol F.North Granby, CT

                                                                  Our two week stay at this 4th floor Esplanade condo was delightful. From the moment we inquired about the rental, booked it, to our departure date, Randy (the owner) was always available, if we needed, by email.

                                                                  The condo was spacious, comfortable, and conveniently located to shopping, restaurants and beaches. The condo was clean, had a well equipped kitchen, good Wi FI connection, and a beautiful view of Smokehouse Bay.

                                                                  The weather could not have been better and allowed us to enjoy outdoor activities during the days and cocktails at night at CJ's watching the beautiful sunsets.

                                                                  Thank you for letting us make your home ours for 2 weeks. Hope to return again, soon.

                                                                  John & Carol F.

                                                                  Owner's Response:

                                                                  Thank you John and Carol. I am so glad you enjoyed your stay at my condo on Marco Island. I look forward to your return which will make it your third time at the Esplanade. Randy

                                                                  Extremely Spacious, Well Maintained, Great Location & Spectacular View - I will return!

                                                                  Alicia A.

                                                                  I stayed at this beautiful condo for 10 days in July 2017 with my family - a total of 8 (6 adults and 2 children) and space was never an issue. The common area (living room and dining area) is EXTREMELY SPACIOUS! Before I even got there, the owner sent all of the instructions for getting in the condo; parking; restaurant recommendations etc. - very detailed and left no room for error. The owner is very responsive as well when emailed.

                                                                  The condo was fully equipped with everything one needed! The assigned parking space was also conveniently located and only 1 floor up and you were right outside the condo.

                                                                  There is nothing negative about the condo, the owner, and the location - no complaints at all! This is my first time using VRBO and it was a pleasant experience.

                                                                  I will definitely return!!

                                                                  Owner's Response:

                                                                  Thank you Alicia for the very positive review. I am so glad you enjoyed my condo and your first VRBO rental. I look forward to your return.


                                                                  Perfect vacation for this family of 5...will definitely be back

                                                                  James F.Louisville,KY

                                                                  I can't say enough nice things about the condo and the owner. Other than a little rain at the beginning of the vacation it was perfect. Condo was great. Clean. Well-decorated. Comfy. Nice, but very kid-friendly. View overlooking Smokehouse Bay and marina just awesome. Kitchen well stocked with everything you need in terms of utensils, cookware, etc. Plenty of TVs and cable/wifi throughout. Pool is great with plenty of shaded areas. Staying at the Esplanade (development that houses the condo) was ideal; we've been vacationing on Marco Island for decades but have never stayed at the Esplanade. Esplanade has a Cold Stone Creamery (which the kids loved) and a few restaurants/bars that run the gamut from white tablecloth to great breakfast spot. Also, the Esplanade is literally across the street from Winn-Dixie, so little need to even take the car out. But, if/when you venture out it is nice to be able to access your car in a covered lot, which is a big deal in the occasional Florida rain and scorching sun. The owner was great to deal with and left very explicit instructions so "checking in" and "checking out" and out" was super easy. We will definitely be back. I highly recommend this unit...you'll be glad you did.

                                                                  Owner's Response:

                                                                  Dream Place on Steroids!

                                                                  victoria r.

                                                                  First of all, Marco Island takes you back to your dreams of that P-e-r-f-e-c-t vacation! This was our fifth trip back, and this condo sealed the deal for all our future visits!!!! The privacy and security of the Esplanade allows you that feeling of safety, which is quite important. Now, the condo itself is spectacular and I mean spectacular!!! The kitchen has absolutely everything you need and than more! So spacious and clean too. My favorite was the porch with those spa like curtains, omg! And, than, the master bathroom jacuzzi bath tub.....I had a glass of wine and a great soak (every day) after fluttering around the island.. The outside porch has the most relaxing and calming view EVER! The owners were more than gracious and so friendly! They had a great print out of where to go, how to run the TV's, and a review of the local restaurants...What more could you ask for us?

                                                                  Owner's Response:

                                                                  Fantastic property in the Esplanade on Marco Island

                                                                  Carolyn L.

                                                                  Owner's Response:

                                                                  The Esplanade on Marco Island is approximately 30 miles from all the shops, beaches, restaurants, and cultural activities of Naples. It is also approximately 30 miles from the Everglades and the 10,000 Islands with county, state and federal reserves giving you access to these unique environments. Finally, the island itself is on the Gulf of Mexico and is small enough to be manageable by car or bike with beaches, restaurants, and canals. From Marco you are less than 2 hours from the Atlantic Ocean including Miami, Ft Lauderdale, and other popular destinations including the beginning of the highway onto the Florida Keys. Marco Island attracts a broad following of vacationers mostly with families or older members. You will see many people from the Eastern 1/2 of the US and a very substantial number of Europeans all coming for a great tropical vacation. While the Esplanade has restaurants and entertainment, it is not a 'party center' or spring college spring break location.
