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.
Please consider the following guidelines when booking this property:
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Been visiting Marco for 45 years. This property is fairly priced with great location.
Great condo in Marco!
Our family enjoyed our vacation in Marco and the condo was perfect!
Thank you so much for staying at my condo and I hope to see you again soon.
Only the great view outside could trump the great space inside. All indoor and outdoor areas are spacious yet still comfortable with everything you could need. Generous kitchen if you tire of the restaurants nearby. Lots to appreciate with this condo including the responsive owners.
Thanks for the kind review and I am glad you enjoyed your stay at my condo. Please come back when you are in Florida.
This unit is spacious and well equipped, and it comes with an outstanding view.
This was our third visit to this wonderful condo at Thanksgiving. We find it to be the perfect place to unwind while enjoying the company of family and friends. It is conveniently located near grocery stores, many different types of dining options, and a variety of shops. We enjoyed getting our exercise in the well equipped fitness center, then relaxing at the pool. The beach is also within walking distance, so we had lots of options to work off that Thanksgiving feast!! You will find the owner to be very accommodating and prompt in answering any questions you might have. We are eagerly looking forward to our next visit!
Thank you Jane your kind review and for celebrating your 3rd Thanksgiving at my condo. I look forward to your return.
Great Family Getaway on Marco Island!
When we arrived, the unit was exactly how it is pictured. The unit is very large and plenty of space for the 8 people in our family. The water views from the large balcony were very nice. We docked our boat at the marina which was just beneath the balcony, very convenient. The coffee shops, restaurants, grocery stores and shopping in general, were all within short walking distances. I have stayed on Marco several times prior, but each time before, it was at a house. This is definitely a place I prefer over them and look forward to coming here again.
Thanks for the very positive review. I am so glad you enjoyed your stay and all the restaurants and shops in and around the Esplanade.
Please bring your boat back and stay with us again.
Wonderful vacation in a great condo.
We had 23 wonderful days in Randal's condo. The condo is well appointed, spacious, the sunroom is perfect. The view is like no other! The owner is very responsive and helpful. Thank you, Randal. Everything great! Bob and Mary

I am so glad you enjoyed your stay at my condo. Thanks for your positive review and please come back again.
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.
