About the Property

Private Home, Resort-Like Community, Central Florida Activities

*Please carefully review minimum stay requirements (typically 21 Days) and the availability calendar before submitting requests. Requests for periods shorter than our minimum stay or for more than the maximum amount of guests must be declined and the impact on our conversion rate puts this listing at risk. Thank you*

Come enjoy a private home with resort-like community amenities and easy access to activities in Central Florida.

This single level duplex villa with 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms was purchased in 2014 and has received a thorough scrubbing, fresh coat of paint and many new items including stainless steel kitchen appliances. Efforts have been made to equip with higher efficiency items to minimize impact and be eco-friendlier while maintaining comfort for guests.

Palm Place is still considered a “work-in-progress” with continual improvements but it seemed important to share our modern, low-key oasis with others. The layout is that of a 3 bedroom villa. However, the third bedroom is locked off and used as the owners' office/storage space.


Sip a cup of fresh brewed coffee or glass of wine while overlooking lush green lawn and woods. Explore the Clubhouse or dip in the pool. Play a game, set or round. Gaze across the lake and watch for wildlife. Go on an adventure at one of the nearby attractions like Disney or Sea World. You will find the variety provided by this location excellent and the community has more than a bit of charm.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: We are Angel and Eric Swindell and fly under the banner 'Starfish Services' for appropriate business and reporting purposes related to our vacation rental. We use Palm Place at Lake Marion as our stateside hub and vacation home. We loved the community we purchased another villa called Hibiscus Hideaway at Lake Marion which is directly across from the community clubhouse and pool. We enjoy connecting with new people from all over the world and are open to potential vacation swaps.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
Lovely green space, easy walk to the community clubhouse, directly across the street from the tennis and basketball courts.
