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 Florida South Gulf Coast

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.

Top notch condo in beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at the property for one week and have enjoyed it every minute. We live in Florida and enjoy going to the beach. The kids (16 and 11) like the Marco Island beach a lot. However, we have all agreed that staying at the condo was the highlight of this vacation. The beds were confortable, the kitchen was supplied with all the items you would need including a keurig coffee machine and an electric grill, the view is much better than the pictures show, the laundry equipment was in very good condition, Wi-Fi worked perfect (this is very important for kids), furniture and decorations are beautiful.

In conclusion, we are very happy to have experienced a week at the residence.

Our stay at the Esplanade on Marco Island

  • 5 of 5

We recently celebrated Thanksgiving with all of our children at the Esplanade on Marco Island. Our accommodations were spacious enough to give every member of our family privacy when needed, yet there were many areas where we could all gather together for family visits. The kitchen was so well equipped that we easily hosted Thanksgiving for our family as well as long time friends who live in Naples. The location was beyond compare. We were within walking distance of many fine restaurants and shopping areas. It was the perfect location for us. We would highly recommend this condo to anyone traveling to Marco Island, and we sincerely hope to return in the future.

Great Location to all of Marco Island

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Marco Island and could not have chosen a better condominium. Centrally located to everything you would want to do on the Island and very comfortable and spacious. Located on the bottom floor of the unit are at least 3 good restaurants if you don't want to venture out. Randal was extremely helpful directing us on what to do since this was our first visit to Marco Island. We will return next spring break.

Superb location and absolutely beautiful penthouse!

  • 5 of 5

We still have a few days left on our stay but I couldn't wait to write my review! This amazing penthouse condo was the perfect choice for us. The location at the Esplanade affords you 3 great restaurants, a Starbucks, Coldstone Creamery, and shopping and you are in walking distance to several quality restaurants. The beach is a 5 min drive or a nice walk. The owners of this unit provided every essential you could hope for and the unit is decorated beautifully. The owners were very responsive, easy to communicate with and so very nice. This was our first visit to Marco but we've already booked our stay at this condo for next year. Thanks for sharing your home with us. A+++!!!

Amazing Experience

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this condo. Randy, the owner, could not have been nicer. The spacious layout was very convenient and well appointed. The views and the sunsets from the balcony were spectacular! We really enjoyed the large pool and spa. We especially liked the convenience of staying at the Esplanade with it's 3 excellent restaurant's and shops. We rarely left the premises because there was so much to do there. It was like staying at five star resort. We will definitely be back.

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.
