Guestbook comments from the host:
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. Steve and Susan
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've been coming here for 6 years and always have a good time. Condo is always clean and well equipped.
Very nice condo! It had everything you need to have a great time with your family. We rode the bikes around the island and felt in love with it. The beach is absolutely beautiful. I would definitely go back to Marco Island and to this very cozy apartment. we had a lovely stay!

Great place for our family of five! Close to beach, nice pool, wonderful condo
We were so happy with our stay at the condo! The distance to the beach was just right for our kids (2.5-7.5), the pool made for great playtime when we wanted a change-up from the beach, and the condo itself was really well taken care of. From the kitchen to the beach cart, everything we needed was right there to make our stay easy and enjoyable. We took walks to the nearby restaurants and shops and loved being able to see the water right from the balcony. We would definitely stay here again!

Newly updated condo feels clean and bright.
This unit is at the south end of the island just across the street from the beach. It is a quick walk to the south beach public entrance. The unit is newly renovated, so it is very comfortable to stay in. It is a 2 bedroom unit with a window on the side. It overlooks the pool and lets in a lot of light. The updated bathrooms have new vanities, mirrors and showers. There are hard floor surfaces throughout so it can be easily cleaned. They painted the entire unit. The updated kitchen has new cupboards, countertops, and appliances. It feels like cooking at home. All the bedroom furniture is new, as well as the mattresses. The owner is very easy to work with. He responds quickly to texts and e-mails and always reaches out to make sure the unit is ok. The beautiful sunset sky is visible between the buildings. We have been coming to this unit for 10 years and look forward to returning every year.

Excellent location and the condo is beautiful.
This was our 5th or 6th rental from David on Marco Island. The condo is across the street from the beach and it's a short walk to several restaurants. We'll be back next year!!

Wonderful Marco Island vacation
We recently stayed at this lovely condo () and could not have been happier. Dave was super-easy to communicate with & always got back to us quickly if we had any questions, etc. The condo was super-clean & was even nicer than it appeared in the pictures online. The location was perfect-short walk to the beach & we could see the beautiful sunset from our balcony on the days we weren’t on the beach The condo is stocked with everything you could possibly need for a wonderful vacation (my favorite was the beach cart-made it so easy to bring all of our stuff to the beach). I would highly recommend staying here-it was awesome!!

Everything you need for a sun filled vacation!
We stayed at The Essex and could not have been more pleased, it was new remodeled with beach colors and theme, 5 minute walk to the beautiful beach, they have beach towels, umbrella, all the amenities you need. Great pool literally at the foot of condo. Could not have asked for a better week. Quiet town, great restaurants and shopping near by. The owner so attentive and available. Cannot wait to go back!

We had a great vacation and Dave is the best. Quick response to any questions or concerns and the rental was top notch. It was great to not have to travel with all of our beach stuff. Everything we needed was right there in the condo. We will definitely be back and the first person we will contact is Dave for s place to rent.

Cute condo very close to beach. The king size bed in the master is a plus. Full kitchen if you prefer to eat in. Anything and everything you need for the beach is in the unit. And it is a 5 minute walk to beautiful South Beach! Slight view of the gulf from the kitchen table does not disappoint either. Would definitely recommend to anyone ready for some respite on Marco Island.

If you are looking for a clean unit close to the beach look no further! Great end unit with all the amenities of home. Plenty of kitchen supplies to cook your meals if you don't want to go out. Nice view of the gulf from the lanai or kitchen table. Now the good part, you are equipped for the short walk to the beach. High quality umbrella, chairs, buggy and towels. Having laundry in unit is a plus too. King size bed in master was comfy and the shower is spacious. Loved this unit!

First time staying at the Essex in this condo and it was fantastic. Only a few minutes walk to the beach. The unit has all the beach equipment needs for a great day on the beach. Beds are comfortable, and kitchen is well equipped. We loved people watching from the screened in porch. Pool temp was good. Would definitely book this unit again.

We had a great trip to start the year off. Lots of space inside and clean comfortable beds. The condo is in a perfect location and has great views. Everything (beach/food) is within walking distance. Will definitely be back!

This is the second time we’ve book with Dave. I gave him five stars because he has always been very prompt, courteous and quick to answer all my questions. He even remembered who we were and handled our last minute booking like a pro. We stayed in his two bedroom Essex condo. The place was very clean and had everything we needed for cooking, laundry & the beach. The beach equipment was a very big plus for us since we like to spend a lot of time there. I believe Dave tries to make make you’re trip as carefree as possible by giving you as much information as he can. We are already making plans to go back again next fall.

We loved it!
My husband and I stayed here with our 3 kids and absolutely loved it! The pool was fantastic and it was a quick walk to the beach. We definitely recommend this condo -- the owner was great to work with and everything that we needed was there (beach toys, beach chairs, washer/dryer, blender, etc). Marco Island is so beautiful and we would love to visit again!

Love this vacation sanctuary!
The first time I rented this condo was in 2007 and it is just as lovely as the first time! The walk to the beach is pleasant. I always see dolphins, collect shells and walk sunrise and sunset. Yes, you can see both! The weather was wonderful this week! The condo has everything for your home away from home! The beds are super comfortable ! The owner is very nice and responds quickly to emails! You will be so happy that you stayed in this piece of paradise!!

A Great Family Getaway
The condo is beautiful and very well equipped with everything that we needed on our Marco Island vacation. We actually brought a lot of our beach stuff from home that never left the car. We’ll know better next time because the beach cart, towels, Tommy Bahama chairs and umbrella, along with the beach toys that were provided were all we really needed. The beds were super comfortable and the provided linens were great quality. We loved the location on the south end of the the island. The walk isn’t bad to the beach (across the street and down a few blocks) and there are restaurants within walking distance too. Having the view of the pool from the condo and covered parking is also a great bonus. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and hope to visit again soon.

Superb experience, would book again in an instant.
This condo is in an excellent location being that it is right on the beach and walking distance to all the activities. There is a shopping center (my wife loved) as well as various restaurants (I loved) that are less than a mile away from the condo. The condo was spotless and the Owner (David) was very quick with his responses back. Overall, outstanding experience!
