The Marigold’s Penthouse is a beautifully furnished 2 bedroom, 2 bath penthouse apartment.

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 private side deck. This 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.
