A walk to the beach
This condo is very nice, clean and kid friendly. Only 2 blocks to the beach access. It was nice to have the cart to load up and walk to the beach. We had everything we needed. The kids really enjoyed the pool also. We would recommend this property to others.

We stayed in this condo in July 2012. The condo was clean and well equipped. There is a nice view of the gulf from the unit. The rental process was easy and the owner was responsive to both my rental inquiry and any follow-up questions. I have been going to Marco my whole life and would happily stay in this unit again in the future.

My family and I stayed at this condo in July. We would highly recommend it! It had everything we needed and was close to the beach. We had never been to Marco Island before and we loved it! The condo was comfortable and it was a great location. We hope to go back again.

Owner response: Contact owner for more information.
My wife and three children had a great vacation and our accomodations at the Essex were a big part of our happiness. We found the condo very well equipped, spacious, clean and updated. My wife and I enjoyed quiet evenings on the lanai watching the sunset as we kept a watchful eye on our children in the adjacent pool. The unit has a perfect location for walking to the beach and you have everything you need to enjoy your stay by the owners while staying there. In the storage shed, we found new beach chairs, coolers and an umbrella to shield us from the sun. In fact the owners even provided a beach stroller to carry everything to/from the beach! In additon, the unit is within walking distance to restuarants, shopping and a convenience store. Inside, they have two brand new flat screen televisions, an iPod docking station, DVD player and more amenities than I can list! The unit has an ideal location, western exposure for picturesque sunsets and very nice neighbors. If you are considering a visit here, you won't regret it! We look forward to a return visit to Essex and Marco Island soon!

Condo made for an Excellent Vacation
Condo made for an Excellent Vacation
I stay in this condo for a week almost a month ago. This was my first time staying in a condo on Marco. My family usually rents a house when they come down but I wanted my own place this year. I was not a bit disappointed. The condo was VERY clean and well stocked. The kitchen had everything you needed including a dock to play your i-pod or i-phone on. The wireless internet and flat screen tv made the condo stick out from the other ones. You can see the pool from the dining table window and then you sit on the patio furniture on the deck and watch the sunset. The location was awesome as two blocks down and you have the South Beach entrance and The Sunset Grille which is a great time for happy hour or to watch a sports game on tv. Then about 3 or4 short blocks down is the Toucan's Bar and Restaurant, its a new restaurant that has live entertainment almost every night and then across the road from that is Marco Walk where Nacho Mamas, Rookies and Comedy club among other shops. I had rented a car while I was down there but barely used it as the condo was close to everything. Plus the bedding and beds were very soft, never got a bad night's sleep there and l really liked the condo as in the second bedroom there is a queen size bed and a twin bed which is hard to come by as most condos only have two twin size beds in the second bedroom. There is also a full size washer and dryer for your clothes. The condo is located on the third floor but you don't have to worry about carrying everything including groceries up three flights of stairs as there is an elevator plus shopping carts and luggage rack to unload your items onto or in and then put in the elevator. I definately recommend this condo and will be renting it out again.

My husband and I had a wonderful vacation at the Essex. The condo was lovely; it was very clean and a had a nice view from the balcony. We watched the sunset every night. The unit overlooked the pool and it was very spacious. It was well stocked with new dishes and linens. We had wi fi which we used every day. A new flat screen TV was wonderful too. I would highly recommend staying at the Essex. It was great to work with the owner. Hope to go back again next year.

Year Purchased: 2011
About the owner: We have been vacationing on Marco Island since 2003. We have always stayed at the Marriott Beach resort until a trip in November 2011. We decided it was time to look at buying a place so we stayed at the Essex. We loved it so we bought. It is easy in and easy out. Easy access to the beach and we provide all the stuff you need. We vacation here often and just updated with new flat screen TV's and new family room and kitchen furniture in Sept. 2011. Our unit will not disappoint!
