Fort Lauderdale Condo Rental Photos and Description
- 2 bedrooms, 2 baths, sleeps 4
We offer you a vacation getaway in the sky – a 2 bedroom, 2 bath luxury condo at the very top of the Esplanade, right on the New River, in exciting Downtown Ft. Lauderdale.
DOWNTOWN ON THE NEW RIVER – means you are there. Not having to get into your car to “get there”, not “only a mile (or two, or three) to THERE”, but actually being THERE. We have 35 restaurants, night clubs, play houses, historic center, and art museums all within a quarter mile from us – that’s 2 blocks. They are all just an easy short walk away. Or you can take one of our bikes for a pleasant 5 or 10 minute ride to any of them. Walk to the Water Taxi stop just down the street and go anywhere on the New River and Intercoastal Waterway. Eat at one of the nearby restaurants on the river (the Pirates Republic Saloon & Restaurant is a block away). Suggestion: Plan your vacation to take in one of the first-run Broadway productions offered at the Broward Performing Arts Center.
LUXURY CONDO – is like staying in a fancy resort but without the resort prices and small rooms. It is NOT some rental house buried in a residential neighborhood miles from where you want to be. Luxury Condo means a swimming pool, a jetted spa pool, a dry heat sauna room, tennis courts, a full gym, 2 reserved parking spaces, a Business Center and 24 hour desk service with a full time residential manager. A place where someone says “Hello” when you arrive and that can help with problems and questions.
“A VIEW TO DIE FOR” – means we are on the penthouse floor, 16 stories up looking down on the river and the boat traffic. Across the river is the Performing Arts Center mentioned above, Esplanade Park, the City’s Historic District, the Entertainment District and the start of the premier shopping district – Las Olas Blvd. “A view to die for” means the whole City is laid out before you, and at night it lights up as far as you can see.
FULLY EQUIPPED – means a 50” HDTV, Comcast cable service with 273 channels (14 HBO and Starz premium movie channels and 95 HD channels). A Sony Entertainment Center with 7000 songs, Blu-ray DVD player, 20 Mbps Internet service with Wi-Fi, free phone service to anywhere in the US, Canada and Puerto Rico. Bicycles, a kayak for the river, tennis rackets for the 2 courts, a blanket, chairs and cooler for the beach, full kitchen supplies and the list goes on (see details below).

Dear Ralph and Judy, Thank you for allowing us to stay at your beautiful place. Our trip was cut short but we had a wonderful time - short as it was. We are headed to the cool north & wish you both well for the New Year. - Canada

After retiring from Motorola after 40 years as an engineer in their Research Department we wanted to buy a place we could go to getaway. We fell in love with the Esplanade Condo as the perfect hideaway. It is only 30 minutes from our home in Coral Springs but a "world away".
