MARCO ISLAND, Fla. (AP) - House Speaker John Boehner and his wife have bought a luxury condominium on Marco Island in southwest Florida.

The News-Press of Fort Myers reports that the $835,000 condo is in a 14-story tower known as The Tampico.

Boehner shared news of the Feb. 11 purchase with colleagues during this past weekend's gathering of congressional Republicans in Sarasota.

A spokesman for the politician said that Florida has been the family's vacation spot for many years.

Real estate records filed with the Collier County clerk show the Boehners took out a mortgage of $650,000 to help finance the purchase from John S. Lucas Jr. The unit comes with a quarterly condo fee of $3,900, records show.
