About Bill Melendez

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

Why Bill Melendez chose Disney / Orlando

About 23 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.

What makes this condo unique

Lake Marion Resorts backs a state preserve. You are in Central Florida, Wild life, cattle ranches, orange groves, 2 General store w/i 1 Mile, 15 minutes to local shopping including a 'Public's' , 'Super Walmart', and a 'Lowe's'. 20 to 50 minutes mostly everywhere else. Beach's 2 hours away either coast.

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.

Notes:
This October 2016, visited both 'Vero Beach', east coast, and St. Petersburg Beach', west coast, both a little less than a 2 hour Drive. 'Vero Beach' we walked through a Mangrove forest on a very nice deck bridge to the beach, some what secluded. The Atlantic made for some nice waves. The people were friendly. The picnic area and rest rooms were clean and safe. The Vero Beach, in general, casual and upscale. A really nice place. St Petersburg we did pay for parking, $1.50 per hour, again the beach and facilities were safe and clean. Walking on the beach the first thing I notice was the sand really white and almost like powder. The water a little warmer and calm. More of a commercial beach their were more services offered, such as, lounges for $5/day or 2 lounges and a cabana {a large umbrella} for $25/day. In addition you could make arrangement there to go snorkeling for the day $50/day, or maybe pedal one of those large 3 wheel bicycle on the water, I think it was $35/ 1/2 hour.

Clean house, clean n nice pool, gated community

  • 4 of 5

This house was very nice and i would love to go back again. They had nice beds,couch and dining table. They have all utensils (no pan to fry egg) that I was able to cook. Very quiet neighborhood and people are charming. Only the 1st day the lady from downstairs requested us not to let our kids run around during late night. Also, it's about 45 min drive to Disney. Owner and the key holder are very nice. They refunded my security deposit about 4 days after checked out. AC and water heater are in amazing condition.

I would love to go back next time just to stay in the house and relax.

Terribble

  • 1 of 5

First of all there were bugs with the cutlery, most of it was dirty, the stove element were all crooked, the pots were too few and cheap and dented. The icing on the cake was the plywood sheets under the bed mattress in the master bedroom. I feel as if we were ripped off and left early. No Thanks

Exactly what we wanted: clean, comfortable and quiet.

  • 5 of 5

If you are going to Disney or the Orlando are attractions, this is but a short drive away. You are a few extra miles from the beach and coast as the home is off the beaten path. You're only a couple of minutes from shopping and restaurants.

Unit is on the top floor, so if stairs are an issue, keep that in mind. The owners are nice, friendly people. Very glad we selected this property.
