I got a very interesting Google Alert this morning about Marco Island entitled The memory, it gets fuzzy in the heat reported by John Kass of the Chicago Tribune.
It caught my attention with the reference to a Penthouse on Marco Island, so I had to click and read. Then I read the article and thought, now this is an interesting tale of corruption. Better than some of the intrigue we see on TV these days. And all around the latest jewel in the Marco Island crown -- The Madeira. This is an interesting reading for Marco Island residents...
For those of you not familiar with The Madeira, on Marco Island was completed in October 2006. Situated in the center of Marco Island's Crescent Beach of sugar sand as you can see from this Aerial View of the Madeira. This European designed condo has 101 Residences ranging from 2,631 up to 6,500 square feet. Exclusive Living is an understatement.
- The beach level has 7 residences with expanded garden terrace and stairs directly down to the beach.
- There are 8 units per floor for the 1st 10 levels, then 4 units per floor as it cascades up with the Estate Residences and then topped off with 2 Penthouse level units. This is a far cry from the very first condo that was built on Marco Island Beaches - Emerald Beach.
For the residents of The Madeira, there is the Madeira Pavilion filled with amenities including:
- movie theater
- fitness center
- Full service Spa
- tennis courts
- resort-style pool
- Social Room
- And the residents can elect to join an Ambassador Membership at The Marco Island Marriott Spa and the Rookery Bay Golf Club.
