Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in DeLand - Deland Marigold C

Nicely Furnished Two Bedroom Two Bath - Second Story - Historic Fl 2 story

The Marigold’s unit C is a beautifully furnished 2 bedroom, 2 bath penthouse apartment. With dark hardwood floors, high ceilings, built in book cases and a rich burgundy painted master bedroom, this place is elegant. Both bedrooms are roomy with queen sized beds. The brand new kitchen allows for easy meal prep for those who prefer to eat in but don’t neglect the several wonderful restaurants within walking distance! This is a second story apartment accessed by either the interior staircase or the wrought iron winding staircase to the side Deck. The Deck overlooks the garden and is a wonderful place to relax while enjoying your morning cup of coffee or that nice glass of wine before dinner. At dusk the three globe lantern lights come on and you feel like you’ve stepped back in time. Easy parking is located right next to the apartment. Located just a short walk from the center of Deland, a stay in this centrally located property gives you easy access to everything Deland and Central Florida have to offer. Of course, cable and WIFI are provided in case you are just here to relax and chill. Owners Bill and Erin are close by so let them know if you need anything special for your stay.

Deland has been awarded the “Best Small Town in Florida” many times and holds regular festivals including the Dog Parade, The Christmas Boat Parade, juried art festivals, and several holiday parades like Veterans day and homecoming. MainStreet DeLand Association - Deland, FL link can show you the upcoming calendar of events.

New Smryna Beach is a quick 35 minute drive and world famous Daytona Beach with its awesome Daytona International Speedway - NASCAR racing is also 35 minutes away. Both beaches allow driving and parking on the beach.

Deland is home to Stetson University, the Stetson Mansion wired for electricity by Thomas Edison himself, and Sandhill Golf Course open to the public.

De Leon Springs State Park is nearby with The Old Spanish Sugar Mill , famous for its pancakes made right at your table- a must for breakfast lovers. You can pack a picnic lunch and relax all day under the huge shade trees, enjoy canoeing on the river or a swim in the natural spring at this beautiful state park. The St John’s river runs through Deland and offers many types of activities at the nearby marina which also has a rustic seafood restaurant (St. Johns River Cruises).

And of course, Orlando’s world class attractions are just an hour away, including Disney World, Epcot, SeaWorld, famous International Drive and Universal Studios with its newest Harry Potter themed attractions. Day trips might include U.S. Air Force Space & Missile Museum in Cape Canaveral, the world class Outlet shopping area in Saint Augustine- the oldest settlement in America, or a trip to Busch Gardens in Tampa. Gainesville, home to the University of Florida is two hours north and Florida’s gulf coast to the West is about 3 hours. Tarpon Springs on the Gulf coast is another easy day trip. Awesome off shore fishing is offered at several nearby marinas, weather permitting. These include Reel Deal Offshore Fishing in Ponce Inlet.

The Daytona airport is only 25 minutes away as is the Sanford International Airport served by many European travelers. The Orlando International airport is approximately 1 hour away.

There is plenty to do and see in Central Florida and unit C at The Marigold will make sure you’re stay is comfortable. Book your stay today!

Bill Watford purchased this apartment in 2010

Why Bill Watford chose Florida Central Atlantic Coast

This property is located only 4 blocks from the center of Deland, an historic town with a rich culture going back to the Mid 1800’s. It has been voted the Best Small Town in America several times. This property’s

location is in a very private enclave that most people don’t even know is there with close proximity to historic downtown full of locally-owned shops and restaurants.. It’s as if you are in the quiet of the country. You can hear the bells of St Peters Cathedral across the street and even the gentle waters of their fountain. It is within walking distance of the beautiful campus of Stetson University and also only 3 miles away from the St. Johns River.

What makes this apartment unique

You’re in the penthouse of a 115 year old Victorian home! Inside, the apartment has two bedrooms and bathrooms, living room, and a fully equipped kitchen. Adjacent to the living room is a fully equipped laundry room. Off the kitchen is a side patio that overlooks the landscaped yard, a relaxing place for morning coffee or tea. The whole property is designed for comfort and quietness.

Comfortable stay

  • 5 of 5

Even though we stayed in a different apartment, we were happy with the location and its surroundings--an easy walk to town, as well as a good central location for other destinations in the area. Everything was well-maintained, comfortable and clean.

Great Experience

  • 5 of 5

If only the walls could talk in this 110 year old restored home. The owners did a great job of restoring but preserving the historical value of this home. We enjoyed our stay and its location. Just blocks away from historic Deland and the wonderful restaurants there. Easy drive to New Smyrna beach and lots to see in the local area.

Owner's Response: Interesting way of looking at Historic Homes. It made me imagine Deland at the turn of the last century. If only the walls could talk. There is something special about the look and feel of plumbing and lighting fixtures that have stood the test of time and still look great today. It is nice staying Downtown, Fun to stroll around town by day and by night. DeLand is an easy drive to all the great places to visit in Central Fl and the east coast beaches. Thank you for the nice review.
