First I'd like to address the most important part of this property..the owner, Randy. He was accessible and in communication with us from the moment we booked our trip. He checked on us before and when we arrived, during an "unscheduled" tropical storm, and at the end of our stay. The penthouse is incredible...the kitchen, the balcony with the most beautiful views over Smokehouse Bay, and the space! We have stayed in the Esplanade before, but this far exceeded our expectations. We were able to moor our boat in the marina just below the room, which was a plus. This location is near EVERYTHING; grocery, restaurants and shopping. We can't wait to come back. Randy, we hope to meet you someday, you're a gem. Everything about your penthouse is first class! Thank you for making it above and beyond what we ever anticipated. Looking forward to next time.
