About Bill Melendez

We have been married for over 40 years. After leaving The

USAF and our home in Yuba City, Ca. We went back to where we grew up, Long Island, NY. Raised 3 children and now boast of 2 grandsons, Santino and Maximo. I'm a self employed Contractor, 'The Toolman, A Handyman Service and my wife works for a country club on the south shore of Long Island.

We come down to Lake Marion often and find it really relaxing. Our days here usually consist of shopping at Walmart , Lowes' and/or Publix. Discovering new restaurants, going to flea markets, the movies [something we usually don't have time to do at home] and driving to either coast.. St Pete Beach or newly discovered Vero Beach and many other beaches all with their own charm and personality. Maybe staying in a motel if we want to but always being able to drive back to Lake Marion Resort.

We find LMR a great place to relax after whatever we do. A short shopping day or a long side trip. We find ourselves relaxing. whether sitting down to read or watching some TV or walking to the lake or to the pool/hot tubl. Its a great place.

Bill Melendez purchased this condo in 2008

Why Bill Melendez chose Kissimmee

About 23 years ago my wife had a brain tumor. After a year of doctors, hospitals, work, family, the house, etc... We wanted to go to Disney. We planned on making it in 3 days, leaving after work staying in Washington DC, and a 'Red Roof Inn', in Jacksonville, Fl. We woke up in DC to a emergency snow warning for the east coast. We had reservations at a Disney World Resort, and a lot of snow wasn't going to stop us. All the kids were on board, the last year taught them about getting things done. Through one of the harshest snow storms I can remember we drove down to Florida. Interstate 95 was empty. Well there were a lot of memories made on that trip.

We got to Disney, stayed the 3 days and 2 nites. Disney was great. We decided to stay longer but the cost of an unexpected stay at Disney would put a hurting on our budget. That was when we were introduced to vacation rentals.

For about $40 a night we rented a condo. We had breakfast in the condo and maybe another meal if we felt like it. Eating out wasn't imperative and activities were shared with other families at the complex. We continue to go out but we had a nice spacious place to come back to.

What makes this condo unique

Lake Marion Resorts backs a state preserve. You are in Central Florida, Wild life, cattle ranches, orange groves, 2 General store w/i 1 Mile, 15 minutes to local shopping including a 'Public's' , 'Super Walmart', and a 'Lowe's'. 20 to 50 minutes mostly everywhere else. Beach's 2 hours away either coast.

A gated community that offers peace of mind. A lake, 3 pools, whirlpool, Pool table, Tennis court, Basketball court, why leave... enjoy more of Florida.

This October 2016, visited both 'Vero Beach', east coast, and St. Petersburg Beach', west coast, both a little less than a 2 hour Drive. 'Vero Beach' we walked through a Mangrove forest on a very nice deck bridge to the beach, some what secluded. The Atlantic made for some nice waves. The people were friendly. The picnic area and rest rooms were clean and safe. The Vero Beach, in general, casual and upscale. A really nice place. St Petersburg we did pay for parking, $1.50 per hour, again the beach and facilities were safe and clean. Walking on the beach the first thing I notice was the sand really white and almost like powder. The water a little warmer and calm. More of a commercial beach their were more services offered, such as, lounges for $5/day or 2 lounges and a cabana {a large umbrella} for $25/day. In addition you could make arrangement there to go snorkeling for the day $50/day, or maybe pedal one of those large 3 wheel bicycle on the water, I think it was $35/ 1/2 hour.


Very Good! 4.2/5 -

Clean house, clean n nice pool, gated community

  • 4 of 5

This house was very nice and i would love to go back again. They had nice beds,couch and dining table. They have all utensils (no pan to fry egg) that I was able to cook. Very quiet neighborhood and people are charming. Only the 1st day the lady from downstairs requested us not to let our kids run around during late night. Also, it's about 45 min drive to Disney. Owner and the key holder are very nice. They refunded my security deposit about 4 days after checked out. AC and water heater are in amazing condition.

I would love to go back next time just to stay in the house and relax.

Beautiful, clean, loved it!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful time at lake Marion!! We went down to Florida with our two kids to take them to Disney World.

When we arrived, the place was very clean and we really enjoyed our stay! The place is quiet and beautiful. The pool is pretty big and quiet, most of the time we were the only ones there.

Bill, the owner is very nice and was available when we had questions.

I recommend this place to anyone who wants to have a quiet time away from the city. I would myself go back!

Worst experience ever beware

  • 1 of 5

First the neighbors down stairs was very rude she told us to keep the nose down soon as we got to through door for everything I couldn’t even walk across the kitchen with out hear banging from the neighbor but she was very loud and the day arrival never received lockbox code or anything so I had to call the owner and home away so I could recived information then he try change me extra cleaning fee after I clean house before left left here completely disappointed

Owner's Response: HomeAway provides our address and an introduction letter via email. Directions, general info on preparing for your stay, code for lock box, etc... I understand that neighbors could be difficult, but the condition of our home after this guest was horrific. After consulting with our home manager, reviewing pictures she had sent us as to the condition of our home , there were dirty clothes left behind, juice spilled on bed spread, blood stains on linen, garbage not emptied, dishes in the sink and the overall condition of our home was a mess. When confront as to the condition of the condo was left in they denied our evidence, we have the pictures, they denied everything. I guess it must of worked for them in the past, not this time. Even though we were motivated to keep the entire deposit we only kept $20.00 for the handling and cleaning the blood stain linen and juice spilled bedspread. There are postcards placed in every room stating " no eating or drinking in the bedrooms"

Noisy neighbours, deposit not returned, no communication from owners

  • 2 of 5

We were asked to respect the neighbours however, there was constant noise coming from the neighbours below, music, shouting, doors slamming and due to the construction of the property we could hear people snoring below. We have not received our returnable deposit back, despite being told it would be returned within 10 days of our leaving the property. We have had no communication back from the owners giving any reason for this.

Owner's Response: I have to apologize for the noise coming from other guests/residents. Regretfully some people don't always respect others. As soon as we heard that the refundable deposit had not been sent we got on our lap tops and had it released. Again sorry for the delay. We were under the impression that the deposit would be returned automatically by HomeAway provided there was nothing wrong with the condo. Today I spoke to HomeAway, they have assured me that a refund will be released in 7 days of our quest leaving. As long as the condo is same condition. I regret that we don't remember ever having a dialogue with this guest. I know that they must of had our telephone number, email address, and our key holder[manage] phone number, because we supply it along with detailed instructions on how to get to Lake Marion and how my wife and I prepare for our visits. We feel very comfortable with communicating with our quests. Some people do not feel the same way and like their privacy. My wife and I have spoke about this and will in the future reach out to our prospective guest, by phone, prior to securing a reservation.

Quiet, clean and safe! Great value!!

  • 4 of 5

Great place to call home while on vacation! We were out and about nearly all day everyday while we were in Florida so we didn't spend a whole lot of time in the condo. But it was nice to come "home" to a quiet, relaxing place. Loved having a washer and dryer in the condo, that was one of my favorite features. The cable is decent and WiFi worked great. Great water pressure and plenty of hot water. Nice variety of dishes/utensils/cookware and small appliances in the kitchen. We didn't use the stove/oven but the dishwasher and fridge worked perfectly. The bedrooms are spacious and well furnished. The beds weren't very comfortable, our kids slept fine but my husband and I did not. The owners were super helpful with all of my questions and made sure we were well taken care of! I would stay here again if we vacationed in that same area in the future. I would have given five stars if it weren't for the beds.
