The focus of our Spotlight Series is introducing you to other Friends of the Village--neighbors you will get to know better as we rebuild and in the future, as we open and launch our programming!
Meet Mike & Marilyn Gill
Mike and Marilyn Gill, residents of Quail Meadow, bought their home in 2005 after retiring from a job assignment in Southern California. Today, they live primarily in the United Kingdom, in a small village 20 miles north of London. While they originally planned to spend the winters in Florida, with six grandchildren in England they’ve have found they’re only able to get away to Palm City for around eight weeks a year--and love to share their vacation spot with family.
“We looked at several properties initially, but fell in love with our Quail Meadow home as soon as we saw it,” says Mike. “The big attraction was the pond and golf course behind the house, but most importantly the swimming pools at the old club property.”
From day one the Gill family joined the country club, and then the Sports Resort for the pool, which they described as “essential for an English family.”
“Our grandkids loved to cycle to the pool and we would spend most of the day there,” added Mike. “We were devastated when it closed, to the extent that we had been looking to move prior to the latest good news on The Village Club & Preserve renewing the property.”
As well as swimming, the Gill family enjoys tennis, golf, and a fit and active lifestyle.
“What most excites us about The Village Club and Preserve is that we no longer need to relocate...once again, our family can enjoy the pleasures of cycling to the grounds for a day of swimming or tennis.”
Thank you, Gill Family, for your support! We look forward to seeing you when you return to Palm City.
