About Angel Swindell/Eric Swindell
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.

Palm Place was an Amazing Oasis!
Palm Place at Lake Marion was a wonderful "Home away from Home" during our recent trip to Florida! The condo was beautiful, private, extremely clean, and very comfortable.
Kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed to so some cooking at home during our stay. The pool, hot tub and clubhouse area were absolutely beautiful. It was also a pleasant walk to the lake. The condo complex is situated in a perfect spot for easy access for travel to different parts of Florida in any direction. It is located close enough to easily visit the different theme parks but away from the hustle and bustle for relaxation. Angel was so wonderful to work with! Would love to visit again. Thanks Angel and Eric!
We are ao glad that you had a chance to enjoy area activities and the peace that Palm Place offers. Please keep in touch; you are welcome any time!
The accomatations were as indicated very comfortable.
The condo was very nice and clean. The resort amenities are as descripted minus a golf course. The nearest course is 3-5 miles away ( no biggy.) The recliner needs to be replaced. If your looking for peace and quite this is a Great location, if your looking for restaurant's and entertainment it's a little far out of the way.
Thank you for your comments about Palm Place at Lake Marion. We're glad you enjoyed your getaway. We don't advertise golf as an amenity in our community; however we do list several courses that are nearby. Hopefully, your review will further clarify this aspect to others.
Thank you for pointing out the issue with the recliner to us; your stay followed a very busy winter season and perhaps it saw more use than usual. We will be sure to inspect and address the condition of the recliner upon our return home at the end of the month.
It is true that we are not on top of all the restaurants and entertainment (or subsequently in the midst of the crowds and traffic that come along with that kind of location); that's why the community is so endearing to us. We enjoy the peaceful and natural setting.
Relaxing and comfortable stay
Listing description was accurate, and liked that it was non-smoking and no-pets, great for people with allergies. Property clean. Owners were attentive to any questions, were friendly, and provided excellent customer service. Owners provide many extra touches, including a choice of linens, and a well equipped kitchen with lots of dishes and cooking pans, and cooking appliances. Larger appliances in the villa are modern and well maintained. Really liked the choice of TV programs and ability to record programs. Really appreciated that the patio had sunshine from early morning to late afternoon. Instructions well done and cupboards, etc well labelled so you easily knew where something went. Also appreciated that owners allowed us to use their mailbox and entrance pass. Personally, we loved it that the villa and the entire gated community was quiet. Looking forward to next year's stay. Kudos to Angel and Eric!
We are so pleased that you loved our villa and the Lake Marion community and are looking forward to your stay next season! Thanks for noticing our sentiment toward order and comfort. It was a pleasure to get to know you a little throughout the vacation rental process. We appreciate the care you took with our home and thank you again for staying at Palm Place.
First of all, the owners were great with correspondence. They emailed us promptly and were very helpful, providing us with any necessary information that could help us adjust well during our stay. The home was lovely and everything from the furniture to the cooking supplies were modern, organized and easy to find. The surrounding area was also beautiful and quiet, with courts and pool area very nearby the home. It's a little bit out of the way in terms of shopping outlets, but great for a peaceful getaway!
Thank you for noting the peacefulness of Palm Place and all of the love that we have poured into the villa. We wanted to create a cozy retreat within a resort-like community boasting amenities such as the pool and courts. We are really glad that you mentioned Palm Place's location. It is close enough to enjoy the area activities but definitely away from all of the "hustle and bustle". This was a conscious decision on our part so that we could promote relaxation in a tranquil setting. Mission accomplished!
Don't be afraid of this rental !
What a find this is. The owners went to great lengths and hard work to make this a comfortable place to stay. The beds are very comfortable . Everything is as new , great furniture and appliances, beautiful sylvan setting from the rear patio door. Very peaceful.
Thank you again for staying at Palm Place. One of our favorite things to do is watch the morning sunlight kiss the spanish moss hanging from the treeline. We are so glad that you also enjoyed the view!
