Description

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday condo in Marco Island - Essex 503 North

2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 5

Marco Island’s best attractions are even better when they’re just a short walk away. This 5th floor, 1,000 square foot condo sleeps five, with one king bed and two fulls, and it has two bathrooms.

The solid wood furnishings of the immaculately designed living room are lit up by multi-leg floor lamps, overhead lighting and natural light streaming through the floor-to-ceiling windows. Lush plants add a tropical accent to the setting. A striking gourmet kitchen with extra large granite countertops comes equipped with all the modern appliances you need to prepare everything from a family dinner to cocktails to sip on the balcony while you savor the view of the South Beach skyline. The master suite comes with an ensuite bathroom that features granite countertops and a walk-in shower.

The unit offers comfort-enhancing amenities like air conditioning, a washer and dryer, internet and big screen TVs in the living room and bedrooms. Paintings of beach scenes hanging in the dining room and bedroom serve as a constant reminder of the turquoise ocean just a short walk away. There aren’t any paintings of swimming pools, but you’ll think there should be after you take a refreshing dip in the heated pool. If you’re a tennis player, make sure to bring your racquet because the Essex also has a private court.

Every day, a short walk takes you somewhere new and exciting. Pack up the beach chairs, umbrella, cooler and towels that come with the unit and follow the path lined with sabal palms to the warm sands and limitless activities of South Beach. The clear, shallow water makes for optimum snorkeling. You can also enjoy catamaran sailing, kayaking, exploring warm tide pools filled with seashells, or just laying back and watching dolphins frolic in the surf. Afterwards, be sure to make your way to the beachside Sunset Grill for a front row seat to the spectacular sunset.

Another short walk takes you to Marco Golf and Garden, a miniature golf course in the midst of an award-winning garden. And you’re also a walk away from Marco Island’s premier shopping destination, Marco Walk Plaza, filled with salons, spas, specialty shops, movie theatres and plenty of fine dining options.

You’ve got so many things to do and see, so close to your condo. And it’s so simple to book it right now.

Reviewer Comments:

This condo has been beautifully renovated from top to bottom. Everything was extremely clean and functional. It's a very short walk to the south beach entrance (the one next to the Apollo). There are carts available to bring groceries and luggage up the elevator, which was very helpful! The pool was great and had plenty of chaises, along with convenient restrooms. We would definitely stay again. I would like to see the beach cart replaced, as it has seen better days.

Reviewer Comments:

We stayed at this 2BR 2 bath Condo in May and found it just as advertised. The unit was clean and the view was partial ocean. The unit stayed cool and was easy access. The kitchen has no spices or condiments so we had to buy everything down to the salt.The tennis courts at the complex were locked up tight (no sign as to how to get key) and the complex has no outdoor grills. (it would have been nice to grill out a few nights) There were few people around but no one seemed friendly.

Reviewer Comments:

What a FABULOUS condo and well appointed with all of the amenities and then some. It felt like walking into our own home. The only drawback was the fact that we had to leave. We were thrilled to have not one but three excellent views of the Gulf from our 5th floor lanai and the location was perfect for a walk to the beach and shopping. We will definitely be back.

Essex N503 is a clean, newly-decorated unit with great amenities: new flat-screens in both bedrooms and a 55" (a guess) in main area. Dishes, utensils and appliances are brand new. Bathrooms are fully-tiled and gorgeous! The dining table is the raised style with high chairs, not ideal for our age. Couch and chairs in the main room are oversized, also less comfy than we would like. Tiled floor in main area, kitchen and bathrooms; carpet in bedrooms. Basic cable service only has HD on select channels. Loved the tennis court and pool, but a hot tub would have been appreciated. A glimpse of the ocean can be seen between the two condo buildings across Collier, but we knew the ocean view would be restricted. Beach access was not just across the street, but a 1/3-mile walk either south or north on Collier. Even though the unit is on the top (5th) floor, traffic noise from the patio was not as pleasant as hearing ocean waves. But inside with doors closed it was extremely quiet. This was our third February in Marco Island. We chose the Essex because it is on the south end where the beach is less crowded and away from the congestion. It is still an short walk to some nice shops and restaurants. Stilts Bar & Grill at the Marriott Vacation Club is just 1/3 mile and a great place to toast to the sunset. ;>)

This was an awesome trip. Our condo was amazing, the place was clean the beds were super comfortable. In the past when we have rented a condo on Marco Island it was not as nice as we expected, that wasn't the case this time. We will be going thru Andrew for all our future rental needs.
