LUXURIOUS ESPLANADE CONDO OVERLOOKING SMOKEHOUSE BAY, MARCO ISLAND, FLORIDA 
If you’re looking for an upscale waterfront experience, look no further than the Esplanade. This 3rd floor, 1,800 square foot condo sleeps six, with one king bed, one queen and two full beds, and it has 2.5 bathrooms. Each time you look out the arched walls of your balcony, you’re greeted by the serene image of the waterfront promenade with a backdrop of yachts docked in Smokehouse Bay. You’re only a short boat ride away from the white sand beaches of undeveloped tropical islands and from Olde Marco’s dockside restaurants with front row seats to some of the world’s most magical sunsets. Your balcony also overlooks the brick courtyard of the Esplanade, with its fountains, palm trees and colorful storefronts of upscale retailers, small specialty stores and an eclectic mix of restaurants. The atmosphere of luxury isn’t limited to the outside. The exquisitely decorated interior is bathed by natural light through the arched walls of the balcony and floor-to-ceiling windows surrounding the living room. The dark wood dining room table looks out at a thick cluster of palms just beyond the balcony. The gourmet kitchen, with stools set beside the island counter, is filled with all the modern appliances and cookware you need to do justice to the gourmet ingredients you can pick up in the specialty stores below. The bedrooms are adorned with shuttered windows to let in the fragrant night air off Smokehouse Bay. The master suite gives you sliding door access to the balcony and contains an en suite bathroom featuring a bathtub and walk-in shower. This unit provides you with all the comforts and conveniences of your home away from home, including air conditioning, ceiling fans and a washer and dryer. It also comes with internet and a big screen TV in the living room. When the constant view of Smokehouse Bay makes you yearn for a swim, head down to the heated pool and hot tub. You’ll also enjoy the state-of-the-art fitness center and a social room. Will you find enough hours in the day to enjoy so much shopping, boating and luxurious amenities? We’re sure you’ll find a way. This week long stay is available either August – November 23rd, 2019 or June – July 2020 based on a mutually agreeable date. Contact Robin and Jeff Saar, 815-272-8202.
