The moment you see the Pier 81 two-building complex lined with palm trees and rising 11 floors off the water’s edge, the feeling of luxury rushes over you. Pier 81 may be in Old Marco, but it was built in 2001. Two high speed elevators take you up to your home to a semi-private foyer shared by only one other unit. Floor plans range from over 1,900 square feet to over 2,200. The units offer truly spectacular panoramic water views to the east and west of the Marco River, Collier Bay, The Gulf of Mexico, the Marco Island Bridge, and the marina. Enjoy sunrises and sunsets from the two spacious terraces and kick back and watch the boats passing by. These well-made condos have the good stuff: plentiful natural light, open great room floor plan, large master suites, private garages, ample storage, wet bar, tile floors, and extensive luxurious appointments throughout. The gourmet open kitchen has granite counters, stainless steel appliances, and a wall oven.
Pier 81 is a gated condominium community with many enjoyable amenities. The beautiful, heated swimming pool is conveniently nestled between the two buildings in a quiet and secluded area and features a spa right alongside so that you can literally slip over the side of the spa and into the pool. In addition, the luxury condo features tennis courts, a clubhouse with community rooms, and a fitness center. This is a storage area for those bicycles you brought along as well as plenty of extra storage.
Speaking of biking – it’s a great way to explore Old Marco. Pedal over to the Esplanade for brunch, ride to the grocery store, or just enjoy the fresh sea air while riding through the quiet streets, surrounded by swaying palms, and enjoying the local scenery. Pier 81 is in an outstanding location; close to the beach, fine and casual dining, shopping, theater, art museum, playground, dog park, executive airport and golf courses. It is a relaxing world with plenty of water sports and beach activities to access.
