About Hollie Richardson

My name is Hollie Richardson, and I am the Manger of Manor Homes Management. We personally own homes, and work direclty with Owner's of homes in the Disney area. I have been managing homes since 2004. I grew up in Miami, Florida, going to Walt Disney World every chance we could. As I grew up and had a family of my own, we moved to North Florida where we were close enough to Walt Disney World that we could take the kids to the parks so they could ride their favorite ride and have lunch. Now I am lucky enough to assist Guests with their dream vacations to Orlando.

Hollie Richardson purchased this villa in 2005

Why Hollie Richardson chose Central/Disney/Orlando Area

Our family would meet in Orlando a few times a year to be together and take the kids and grandkids to the parks. We would book 4 hotel rooms and request to be as close to each other as possible. Invariably we would be seperated and would be going through the hotel hallways in our pajamas before we went to bed saying goodnight to the family in their seperate rooms. In 2003 I heard about homes in the Orlando area that you could rent instead of 4 hotel rooms. After that stay we were hooked. We found the Emerald Island Resort, chose the lots we preferred and built our home. We built and decorated the home to be a home away from home for our family, and a luxury rental home for Guests. Thought was put into every room to allow the home to fit large families from babies all the way to Great Grandparents because that is who we have staying at the home for our family gatherings.

What makes this villa unique

Minnie's Maingate Manor is not your typical vacation rental. The home is decorated with lavish decor, the kitchen is ready to cook gourmet meals in, the beds are all pillow top Sealy Posturpedic comfort, 600 thread count cotton sheets to pamper everyone. When you are ready to swim, the home boasts the largest pool available to the resort homes, with no homes behind you for privacy while you watch the beautiful sunsets over the conservation area and pond in the back yard. To top it off, the home is in the beautiful Emerald Island Resort, which is only 3 miles to Walt Disney World, and has a gated entry with a guard on duty 24 hours a day.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Forget the theme parks. Once you stay at Mickey's Maingate Manor you will not want to leave. Hollie, the owner, and Veronica, her property manager, have thought of everything. -- right down to the welcome basket of goodies that greet you upon your arrival. This home -- like its sister property Minnie's Maingate Manor -- has been decorated to create atmosphere. Every room is designed and centered on a theme. The furniture and decor appear to leap from the pages of a magazine or movie set. Your biggest challenge here will be deciding which bedroom you want to sleep in. By the way, every bed is topped with the highest quality mattress. There are plenty of plush, clean linen and towels, and the best dinnerware, pots and pans, too. Veronica and her team also keep the property spotless. I have been leasing vacation homes in the Orlando area for about eight years now, and we typically travel there two or three times a year. Without hesitation I can say Mickey's Maingate and Minnie's Maingate are my favorites. The experience is worth every dime.

We arrived back in the UK on Monday and we were very sad. We had just had 2 magical weeks in Florida and stayed in the most amazing villa we could of ever asked for.

Minnie’s Maingate Manor was fantastic.

The attention to detail and the care/love that has been put into making this villa what it is was clear to see.

Our ages ranged from 10 years to 49 years and all of us loved it.

Every room was themed which made it so exciting as well as been so individual.

The pool/pool area was such a great size and even when all of us were in the pool together it did not feel cramped.

We spent many a evening and any spare moment we could find at home (your villa) and making the most of everything it offered.

Everything we needed was right there. The location was perfect too. So close to everything that we didn’t lose anytime having to travel miles.

Hopefully one day we will return to Florida as we all love it there and when we do you we will be returning to stay at this villa.

A Mini-Adventure near the theme parks

  • 5 of 5

This house has a little bit of everything: A lot of thought went into the clever decorating that was both functional and whimsical at the same time. From the hidden Mickey's to the double fan over the main family room, to the VERY comfortable beds throughout, we thoroughly enjoyed our time here. This property has a large pool with a small sitting pool on one side and a REAL, heated Jacuzzi on the other. The game room was comfortable with its' own air conditioning unit, mini refrigerator, and comfortable furniture and gaming chair. There was a big welcome basket waiting for us, a bose sound system in the kitchen, and a BBQ grill near the pool. While it would be difficult for people with disabilities or mobility problems, it was great for a large family or family reunion. Hollie and her crew went out of their way to ensure our stay was perfect.
