About Bill Watford
About Bill Watford I am a native Floridian. There are a lot of nice cities in Florida and my two favorite small towns are Deland on the east side of the state and Cedar Key due west on the Gulf of Mexico. I started buying houses to rent as an investment while I had a full time day job, my first in 1985 and I still own it - the Cedar House of Deland. My full time job today is managing the vacation rentals and short stay properties that I own. I have several in Deland: The Units of the Deland Marigold, Grandma's Place, and The Cedar House. I also have two in Cedar Key: The TreeHouse and Goose Cove Cottage. I enjoy what I do and am passionate about seeing that my guests have a great experience while staying in one of my properties.
Bill Watford purchased this Apartment in 2010
Why Bill Watford chose DeLand
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.

Great place in perfect location
Love this place, coffee on wonderful covered front porch. Walk to quint downtown. Close to Great Beaches, Springs, River and Orlando.
Very impressed with this property and Scott was exceptionally helpful.
Had a wonderful visit, the property exceeded expectations. Very roomy with abundant windows to let the sun shine in. Close to town for walking tours and access to local resturants.
Charming, large, clean, and centrally-located
My spouse and I stayed for four weeks and thoroughly enjoyed Deland. The apartment is very spacious and the bed was comfortable. The kitchen area allowed us to prepare our own meals when we wanted, and having the use of a washer/dryer meant we could avoid a laundromat. We brought our bikes with us, and were able to lock them up on thefront porch. Deland is beautiful! We enjoyed riding our bikes around town to get familiar with it. Bill and Erin had a binder full of activities and sights to see in the area. Do check out some of the local hot springs, or for a real treat, drive to the Kennedy Space Center, Daytona or New Smyrna Beach!
Our Christmas trip to Deland
We had such a great time on our visit to Deland. The Marigold was everything that was advertised and more. So convenient to everything and very clean. Will not be our last trip to this property. 👍👍👍

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!
