The Marigold’s Penthouse 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 spacious 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.

Bill Watford purchased this apartment in 2010
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.
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.
Really enjoyed our stay here! Huge bedrooms with open kitchen/living room area. The welcome basket was very nice! Definitely will stay here again!
We enjoyed our two weeks at the Marigold and plan to come back for two months next winter. We stayed in the 2/2 upstairs apt which worked out well when we had guests. Next year we're going to stay downstairs in the Floridian since my wife plans a second knee surgery this year. We love the shops and restuarants downtown, especially the Boston Coffee House. We met some new friends at the Unitarian Universalist congregation in the neighborhood. Bill and Dan the maintenance man were quick to address any small questions or issues we had and we were happy to have our fuzzy daughter Abby with us. Looking forward to next winter.
We loved everything! Thank you for the welcome basket and thank the handyman for helping us with the new TV. DeLand is such a nice little town with great resturants and lots of nice little shops !The beds were very comfortable. We could walk to Church,walk downtown to eat,so convenient !
The place was exactly as advertised, comfortable and spacious. We also really appreciated the welcome basket Bill left for us and for making the whole process seamless, a wonderful place to stay.
This is the second time staying at the property, and as we discovered during our first stay, we loved the convenience to downtown DeLand and feeling of being at home.
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.
Ideal Location: Enjoy the very best of both old and new Florida without living and sleeping in the crowds and noise. From visiting the famous Daytona Beach, kayaking in the St Johns River, taking a trip to Disney or Seaworld, swimming with the Manatees at Blue Springs or Ponce De Leon Springs, renting a House Boat at Hontoon, surfing at New Smryna, choosing between 3 nearby water parks, to strolling Historic Downtown Deland, each day can be a new adventure. Enjoy!
