About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 5)

Beautifully decorated, two bedroom, two bath condo in the Essex.

This condo has is loaded with all amenities of home including FREE Wifi. From the front door of the condo to the beachfront It's less than a five minute walk and that's carrying the beach chairs. There is a king-size bed in the master bedroom, two singles in the second bedroom, and the couch pulls out to a queen sleeper. There is FREE wireless internet in the condo.

This Non-Smoking unit comes complete with all the beach chairs, beach cooler, beach radio, beach towels, and lots of beach toys. If you don't feel like walking to the beach you are only a ten second walk to the pool. The unit has three TVs/VCRs/DVD players, CD stereo system, full-size washer and dryer, and much much more!

The Essex offers free tennis and you are only a seven minute walk to restaurants, beach stores, and the Marco Island movie theaters. I offer the lowest rates around for the simple fact I want to keep my unit booked and not sit idle. I would much rather share the beauty of Marco Island than let the unit sit empty.

Clean and Comfortable Condo!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in this condo. It was clean, comfortable and for the most part had everything we needed. We loved that there was beach equipment available for our use. We used the cart, chairs, umbrella and cooler every day. There were also a lot of beach towels to use. The screened in porch was nice to sit on and to keep the kids contained. It also has a pretty view of the Gulf (you can see it between two buildings across the street).

The condo could use some updates, specifically the carpet in the bedrooms, but overall the unit is in good shape. The need for updates did not take away from the overall experience we had.

The location of the condo was great. It's on the south end of the Island and only a two block walk to the beach public access and a short walk to restaurants, mini golf, movie theater and shops.

The only thing that we really missed was a grill. Because we travelled with a 1 and 2 year old, dining out was not an easy option and cooking on the stove/oven was the last thing I wanted to do on vacation. This also did not take away from our enjoyment of the condo...would have just been a nice feature to have access to.

Overall, we had a great time and would recommend this condo.

Always Enjoyable!

  • 5 of 5

We have visited this property 9 times in the past 3 years. The condo is across the street from the ocean with a view of the ocean between buildings. It is a quick 5 minute walk to the south beach entrance. The 2nd floor end unit has an extra window overlooking the pool. Dave maintains this unit and adds improvements each year. The master has a new mattress, the unit has 3 HD flatscreen tv's, and the appliances are new. We enjoy walking to the many restaurants at Marco Walk. We always enjoy our stay.

The perfect island haven

  • 5 of 5

Just spent the second year in this lovely condo for a three week winter getaway. Looking forward to our return next year. We especially love sitting on the lanai to watch the sunsets, spending time at the pool and walking to the beach. It is equipped with everything we need to enjoy our stay to the fullest. Dave and Cami have been so wonderful to rent from. They are always available to reach with questions or concerns. They have made sure we have all the comforts of home. We really enjoyed watching the Super Bowl on the new flat screen TV. Their Condo is clean and attractively decorated.

Fantastic value, perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We LOVED our stay at this condo. We were unfortunately joined by Tropical Storm Colin, so it was a wet week, however, we had a much needed relaxing stay. The condo had absolutely everything we needed, from towels, to toys. We were able to gaze at the ocean across the street, and it was a SUPER short walk to the beach itself. We loved the Sunset Grill, and tried out lots of local restaurants. We even went to the Marco Historical Museum, which was very interesting. We also recommend the Marco Movie theater. Even in the rain, there was plenty to do!

We also lived in the pool. We basically had it to ourselves as no-one else wanted to swim in the rain ha :) Our son was the happiest I've seen him in a long time, and he has declared we are coming back next year! Although we were only 1.5 hours from home, Marco Island felt like a different world, and we are hooked.
