This beautifully decorated and very comfortable condo is fully equipped with all the necessities!! There is no need for heavy packing. The condo is very well kept. A short walk to the beach, dining and entertainment makes the location perfect. The storage in the carport is a nice bonus to keep fishing equipment and beach accessories. No tracking sand into the condo. The Essex complex is clean, quiet and family friendly. The private entrance is a plus. It's convenient to walk from the car to the front door especially while carrying luggage or groceries. Just a couple stairs, no elevators to deal with. It's never over crowded or noisy. The pool is a nice feature. It's also well kept. It's a good place to take a break from the beach. We've stayed at this condo several times and have enjoyed every stay. Never a problem. We always go home feeling like it's the best vacation we've ever had. It's always relaxing and peaceful. The comfort of this condo is a huge part of that feeling as well as the beauty Marco Island. Ken and Jo made the process of renting very easy and stress free. This condo is highly recommended!!!!
