Suppose you want to holiday in Paradise and still be in the center of things, the heart of our 'Rock'. Get a close look at this large and luxurious 3 bedroom condo at the Esplanade!!
The location is superb. The entire complex sits on Smokehouse Bay, with shoppes, restaurants, the open-air bar at CJ's Waterfront Restaurant on the Bay, Mango's Dockside Bistro, Chop239 Steak and Lobster, shopping and other diversions such as Starbucks and Cold Stone Creamery. A 77-slip marina hosts boats with direct access to the Gulf.
Most of this can be seen from the sunny south-facing balcony of your second floor unit, while you enjoy the tropical bay breezes wafting through from the commons area. A custom metal safety rail adds security to an already secure location. The private elevator is coded for residents. It opens just 20 steps from the entrance to your unit.
You get a taste of what awaits you inside when you see the art deco etched door panels. Don't worry, the doors are securely behind a fenced outer foyer, that also holds the bicycles available for your use. The decor is best described as modern cosmopolitan. Stylishly furnished in the manner of an urban apartment or gallery, except you are in a secure, quiet, friendly condominium community.
The floors are hardwood bamboo throughout. The kitchen has granite counter tops, including a bi-level surface on the serving bar. Appliances are top-end. The kitchen is open to the dining area and living room, with a dramatic, wide screen HDTV. The master bedroom includes an en suite generous walk-in closet and an en suite bathroom with step in hydrojet tub and walk-in glass enclosed shower. Two other bedrooms share an equally luxurious, albeit smaller bathroom along with a half bath to boot.
The aforementioned balcony is fitted with indoor-outdoor rattan furniture, archetectural appropriate for the arched openings overlooking the courtyard.
A private area, restricted to residents and their guests only includes an al fresco heated swimming pool and hot spa, a recreation room and a fitness center that overlooks the bay. This is such a complete place to spend your holiday weeks that you may forget you even brought a car. Of course, it is securely parked in a reserved space in a covered garage.
We can say without fear of contradiction, you will not forget your Escape to The Esplanade...

Our family vacation at Esplanade 201 was amazing. The condo was beautiful and we enjoyed all of the fabulous dining within walking distance. Marco Escapes made the process enjoyable by providing excellent information and helpful tips on where to go and what to do.

After a long winter that just won't quit, our trip to Marco Island was a wonderful reprieve! The unit was excellent - very clean and well-furnished, centrally located, restaurants and shopping nearby. The bikes were a very welcome amenity.
The service we received in arranging the rental was excellent. Everyone we communicated with was friendly, eager to please and very responsive. They even answered their own phones, no voice mail required. Check-in was easy: we just found the unit and used the code they provided to enter. Never had to go to an office or wait in any lines.

Had the greatest two week stay at the Esplanade in Marco...did not want to leave!! The three bdrm. condo was lovely and comfortable at the esplanade and other than the noise of the people leaving late night and the rolling cart of the early morning deliveries, the place was very comfortable and can't beat the location. Within walking distance to most everything. Loved the music at the Esplanade on Thursday's and the farmer's market on Wednesdays and everything in between!! Can't wait to return to the island next year!!

Just returned from three fabulous weeks in this apartment.
We had everything we could have hoped for and the location for us was perfect. Thanks to Jason and Kathy Managers, the booking was easy and quick, anything requested by us response was almost instant. They took great care of us. Would recommend this apartment and Marco Escapes to anyone.

All communications were prompt and excellent. The condo was beautiful and very spacious. We loved being close to the water and pool and also the Starbucks and Cold Stone! Everything seemed close by so we could walk or ride to get whatever we wanted. We had a wonderful week.
