A Great Place to stay. Lake Marion Resort makes it easy to enjoy all that Florida has to offer! Centrally located in southeast Kissimmee on the shores of Lake Marion. 7 Golf and Tennis Courses w/i 10 miles. About 30 miles from Disney World, Sea World, and Universal Studios. Just 20 miles from Lego Land ! Surrounded by natural beauty the Gulf coast beaches or Atlantic beaches are also within easy driving distance.
'A great place to stay if you want tourist activities during the day then peace and quiet at night. Very well kept community, short walk to a beautiful lake and two great pools. This condo is very nice and clean. A great value. I would recommend this resort and condo for all! '
Of course, Before there was 'Disney' there was Golf. you will have all the comforts of home in the spacious, three-bedroom, two bath villa. The condo boasts a fully-equipped kitchen.
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
About 20 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.
Lake Marion Resorts backs a state preserve. You are in Central Florida, Wild life, cattle ranches, orange groves, 15 minutes to local shopping including a 'Public's' , 'Super Walmart', and a 'Lowe's'. 20 to 50 minutes mostly everywhere else.
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 resort is wonderful! A great place to stay if you want tourist activities during the day then peace and quiet at night. Very well kept community, short walk to a beautiful lake and two great pools. This condo was very nice and clean. A great value. I would recommend this resort and condo for all!
You won't find anything less expensive in the area. Realize it is out in the orange groves & a drive from everything but it's nice if you want no traffic & still about 10 minutes from stores. The condo is large & roomy but everything in it is probably original 2007 & the beds & couches are very uncomfortable. Couldn't use the dishwasher, the ice maker didn't work, the internet went out & then the TV stayed blurry. The master bath toilet ran constantly & we finally had to turn off the water at night . Then the flushing handle broke so we had to flush with a bucket of water. Although the gated community is well maintained there is a problem with "non- guests" that seem to live there full time. Two nice pools but everyday after school & weekends, they fill up with screaming, running, jumping, diving kids that apparently don't have to follow the posted rules. The security guard gave one mom a citation but she said "they're kids & they have to play" so it continued. One Sat. there were 30 kids in the pool while all us paying guests sat on the deck & watched as there was no room to swim. Another guest told us there's a problem with "squatters" there that know when guests leave a condo ! The walls are very thin & we could hear every word & snore from downstairs & next door. This unit is on the outside of the complex with the balcony roadside & a school across so quite noisy. Everyday is yard work with mowers & trimmers starting about 8:30 so don't plan to sleep in. The owner was very nice when booking this stay but now, 27 days later & we still don't have our security deposit back nor does he contact us. Lake Marion really isn't usable as it's all weeds with an alligator under the dock & you have to drive to it from the condo. A vacuum would be a nice addition as we were there 3 weeks without one & the carpet shows the wear from past years. There are many units for rent here so I'd keep looking......
We had a great stay at the condo. Dudley the security guard was awesome he was very helpful and gave us lots of tips on what to go see and do.
This was a beautiful place to stay. It was quiet and clean and we enjoyed our time. The only drawback was there were not tvs in all of the rooms but we made the best of it since we did not arrive to our rental until late each night. I would definitely recommend this to others and we are already planning another trip and hoping to stay here again.
Thank you for letting us stay in your condo. It was just what we were looking for. The heated pool was perfect for the kids, as the first day was a little cool. We hope to make plans to stay again.
The apartment was roomy and comfortable and the resort is great, with two swimming pools (one heated) and in close vicinity of a beautiful lake. Basic shopping (groceries etc.) is availabale in the nearest town which is a 15 minute drive but everything else is rather far away. If you want to get away and be in the Florida countryside, this place is great. The only major drawback was the thin walls and loud neighbours. All in all, a place to be well recommended.
