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//DVD players, CD stereo system, full-size washer and dryer, and much much more!

The Essex offers free tennis and you are only a few 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.

Loved our stay at this condo!

  • 5 of 5

We were more than pleased with this condo. It was just as nice as the pictures show. We loved the second floor location overlooking the pool and the view of the ocean from the living room and screened in porch. It was and easy walk to the beach, restaurants and shopping. Dave was a pleasure to work with. He is prompt with any communication and offered lots of advise for places to eat and things to do. The condo was very clean and is supplied with everything you need including beach chairs, umbrella and toys. It has a fully equipped kitchen with Keurig and regular coffee maker much to our delight. I highly recommend this condo and hope that I can return sometime again.

We were extremely pleased with this condo. It is very well located and exactly as described online. The beach amenities were also a wonderful bonus, especially the beach cart. It is only a 5 minute walk from the condo to the beach entrance. The owner communicates well so that when we arrived we had no questions or problems. Looking forward to returning.

A Cozy, Charming Home Away From Home in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a blissful three weeks in Marco Island. Our accommodations could not have been better. This condo provided the perfect retreat for my husband and I. We were able to take a comfortable stroll to the beach with the convenient cart and beach gear provided by the owners. We love watching the sunsets from the cozy lanai and the bonus of having a pool view. The condo is well maintained , updated with everything we needed to make us feel at home. The owners are always responsive and available when concerns arise. They left us helpful notes and suggestions to make our visit to the island even more enjoyable. We look forward to our return visit!
