About Holly

Holly and her husband have been residents since 1989. Both are transplants from south Florida. They found Mount Dora charming immediately and raised their children here and still call Mount Dora home.

Holly is a nurse at the local hospital and is very involved in the state of FL organization for Infection Prevention. She loves the outdoors, walking, hiking, kayaking. There is an abundance of central Florida springs and trails she considers local hidden treasures.

Holly purchased this cottage in 1989

Why Holly chose Central/Disney/Orlando Area

We purchased this property during the February Mt. Dora festival in 1989. We fell in love with the close-to-downtown location for all the downtown events and the private setting of this home. It is located at the end of a nice, quiet street. This was home for our family for 5 years, we loved it that much!

What makes this cottage unique

Best of both quiet serenity and City of Mount Dora.

The Best

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful place to stay while visiting central Florida area. Holly's home was beautiful, spotless and well stocked with linens and kitchen items. Holly was very accommodating and helpful. Our 10 day stay was a real treat staying in this home. We had family visit with us almost every evening and the deck with grill sure came in handy. Plenty of room and seating for everyone. Holly, thank you again for your attention to detail and your beautiful home. We definitely recommend this property and will stay here again when visiting the area. We would rate 10 stars if able to do so!

Better than advertised

Our girls weekend was fabulous at Holly's. Holly has the hospitality knack like no other. Everything you could possibly need was considered. When you walk in you feel warmly welcomed. It was impeccablly kept. It is a short drive to all the great shopping and restaurants of Mount Dora. This is a treasure find.

Holly's house had everything needed and was spotlessly clean. She responded quickly and thoroughly.

  • 5 of 5

We felt right at home in her cozy surroundings. There wasn't anything we needed that we couldn't find. Also, it with a very short drive into town for shopping and dining. Holly has prepared a three ring binder packed with information on the area, activities, where to eat and where to shop. Her house is located almost at the end of a street that is very quiet. I don't think there's anything she hasn't thought of that could make a vacation better!
