About the property

Beautifully Furnished one Bedroom one Bath is 1/2 of large Victorian home

The Marigold’s Floridian is a beautifully furnished 1 bedroom, 1 bath spacious apartment inside an early 1900 Victorian Home with a laundry room in the basement. From the Florida Style Couch and Loveseat, rich wood floors and high ceilings, everything about this place says comfort. The full bath with shower is entered through the exceptionally large bedroom. The small kitchen allows for easy meal prep for those who prefer to eat in but don’t neglect the several wonderful restaurants within walking distance! The front porch is a wonderful place to relax while enjoying your morning cup of coffee or that nice glass of wine before dinner. Your private parking space is located right in front of the apartment. Located just a short walk from the center of Deland, a stay in this centrally located Historic property gives you easy access to everything Central Florida has to offer. 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 and the Stetson Mansion wired for electricity by Thomas Edison himself,..

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 right on the water.

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.

Why Bill Watford chose Florida Central East

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

Inside, the unit is laid out like a residence Inn with a master bedroom and bathroom, huge living room, and small but fully equipped kitchen. Adjacent to the living area is a front patio that overlooks the landscaped yard, a relaxing place for morning coffee or tea. The whole property is designed for comfort and quietness.

The Marigold Floridian - Beautiful Porch with a Short Walk To Downtown
average rating of 4.5 based on 2 reviews
5

clean, easy to use, close to town

  • 5 of 5

Marigold Floridian is bright, very clean, and an easy walk to downtown Deland, with shops and restaurants. Bill was exceptionally responsive to a minor problem with the cable/internet (was down, had it fixed within a day before I even noticed it didn't work). Also, we needed an extra night due to poor planning on my part - Bill was able to accommodate us in a single phone call. Great choice for a stay for us. Also, don't miss Dobro's Pizza nearby. Excellent food, excellent staff.
