About Erik

We first visited Marco in 1997. We stayed in the South Beach area many times until we built our dream Marco home in 2003. Shortly after closing, we married on the Beach at the nearby Marco Hilton.

Erik purchased this Condo in 2012

Why Erik chose Marco Island

We purchased our condo in 2012. We love the South Beach area and have admired this well kept property for several years. When it came time to purchase and this beautiful condo was available....it was a no brainer.

What makes this Condo unique

The South Beach area is tropically beautiful and laid back. The Beach is a jewel, the Island is clean and very safe. Nearby dining, shops and the Marco Theater provide variety and quality. The new walking path on Collier Blvd. is convenient for bikers, runners and walkers.

                                                          Our first time in Marco did not disappoint!! Our vacation started with our visit to Erik and Laurie's condo in the Essex. It fit our every need... easy access to the beach, restaurants, and shopping. The unit is clean and very comfortable. It had everything five adults needed to enjoy our vacation. Any questions we had, were quickly answered by our hosts!! We will definitely be back. Thank you for making us feel right at home in paradise!!

                                                          My friends and I spent an amazing week here this month and we couldn't have enjoyed it more. The condo was a true home away from home: immaculately clean and fully equipped. We appreciated the option of indoor dining and lounging, but we spent the most time on the breezy lanai. We were excited to have the on site pool and tennis, but with the beach right across the street, we never did utilize these amenities. Erik was a gracious host and the business end of the rental was quick and communicative. We loved our first visit to Marco Island and certainly hope to return for another stay here.

                                                          Owner's Response:


                                                          Very pleased to hear how much you enjoyed Marco and our condo. It was a pleasure working with you.

                                                          Thanks again,


                                                          Perfect find

                                                          We rented this condo for two great years and would have continued except we ended up buying a condo in the Naples area. Erik and Laurie provided us with a comfortable "home" with everything necessary and in a perfect location! The condo was spotless upon our arrival and all we had to do was unpack and walk to the beach! You couldn't ask for more! Thanks for everything!

                                                          Thanks so much for sharing your experience at our Essex condo. We truly appreciated you as clients these past two years. Best of luck with your new condo in Naples.

                                                          We stayed for 3 weeks in this lovely condo. We greatly appreciated the location: minutes from the beach, an easy walk to a variety of restaurants, with wonderful sunset glows from the balcony. The unit itself had everything we needed and was clean. Erik, the owner, was so easy to work with...he communicated often during the booking process and was open and responsive as needed. We would definitely consider another stay in this unit.
