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.

About David DeSmyter

Allow me to introduce you to my family. My name is Dave DeSmyter, my wife Cami, and our three boys Brandon, Cole, and Brady. Many people like knowing who they are emailing and dealing with when they rent a condo. We try and make all our condos warm and friendly and supply them with all the amenities of home. We live in Michigan and get down to Marco Island as much as we can.

Why David DeSmyter chose Marco Island

This is our 2nd home and we are always upgrading it to keep it nice for our renters. 40% of my renters are repeat renters.

What makes this condo unique

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!

Essex Condo

This is a wonderful home away from home, very comfortable and clean. This was our 3rd year and we are already booked for next year. Fully equipped with everything you need. Plenty of beach supplies, chairs, towels, even a beach buggy and within walking distance to the beach.

Essex Condo 201 is a Gem , Can't wait to stay there again !

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at David DeSmyter's Essex condo for a week in May 2017. We have also stayed in his Apollo units. We just love the location. Although not on the gulf it is just across the road and an easy walk over to the beach. The Condo is spacious and tastefully decorated. We especially loved the fact that it is on the second floor and we only had a few steps to go up without using an elevator to come an go. Another selling point for us is that it is an end unit that is on the pool side. A very close convenient walk to the pool . Both the dining room and the Lanai overlook the pool. Your able to watch your Family and friends at the pool while in the room. It's always a bonus to have a assigned covered parking space while on vacation. No guessing where you will park ! We will certainly stay in the Essex unit again. Highly Recommend.
