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.
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.
Loved sitting on the big front porch and being just a few steps from beautiful downtown Deland. The spaciousness of the living room, bedroom, and bathroom were wonderful. Everything was very well looked after and the owner and help were so responsive. Can't wait to come back!
We were able to bring our bikes along for the trip and used the map that was available to us to follow the murals around the town! It made for a nice adventure and a great way to learn about Deland! Thanks again for the basket of goodies! We really enjoyed our stay!
Will definitely use the same location next year. Thank you.
Furniture was a little dated and the mattress inside the couch was in need of repair. However, this place could easily sleep 6-8 people if you brought blow up mattresses. The space had a lot of room. The bathroom was nice and the kitchen was nice. Great place to stay in Deland as it is close to the downtown district. I would definitely recommend staying here!
The Floridian room was our 3rd stay at the Marigold. Once again we were very pleased. Big Kitchen, Big Master Bedroom, Big Bathroom, Big Laundry area in basement and Big Living Room with plenty of room on the couch with her own TV. Nice private porch and private parking area. All amenities needed were available.
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.
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!
