About Fran Wilson

Originally from Philadelphia, I've been braving these tough Florida winters for 20 years and absolutely love it here. Dec/Jan can be a bit chilly but only for a few days here and there and the rest of the winter months are stunningly beautiful. I run a business with my husband called Mookie's Kettle Korn and we stay quite busy with fairs and festivals so we know all the fun events in the area. We can help make your vacation fun and enjoyable by pointing you in the right direction for the type of entertainment that interest you.

Fran Wilson purchased this house in 2015

Why Fran Wilson chose Oldsmar

Centrally located and close to 2 airports (TPA and PIE). A stone's throw to Safety Harbor and only minutes from any kind of Florida fun you're searching for whether it's beaches, golf or business.

Returned to this perfect house for a reason

  • 5 of 5

Last year, I brought my mom to Florida to visit a very special friend of hers. My mom is 86 years old now, and her friend is 98. I worked very hard last year to choose a house I was hoping would suit my mom. She is very fussy, and an absolute clean freak. Well, somehow, I stumbled onto the perfect place when I chose Duane Manor.

When we decided to head back to Florida this year for another visit, we actually planned our trip around the dates this house was available. It was the one thing that was set in stone. As long as this house was an option to rent, we would not go anywhere else. It is the perfect spot. Quiet, safe, private, and most of all Ultra clean. Nothing makes my mom happier than Lysol, bleach, cleaning products, and paper towels. Well, none of those things are needed when you arrive at this place. It's all done already. She is just so happy in this house because it is immaculate.

Thank you again Fran for allowing us to stay at you perfect home.

Owner's Response: Wow. Thanks for your review and we're so glad we could accommodate you again. What a great thing to do for your mom! I did the same thing for my mom when she and her friends were alive and those visits are some of my fondest memories of her. You should know that we have another property across the street. Our house actually. The downstairs (prop #1272052) is a one bedroom, one bath with a pull out sofa. And the upstairs (prop #1271871) is a two bedroom, one bath that's available in the summer months when we travel. Both are cleaned by the same awesome cleaning crew who actually use mostly natural cleaning products like white vinegar and baking soda so the place is perfectly clean without the overwhelming smell of fake flowers. Of course bleach and Lysol are used in the bathrooms. Glad you and your mom enjoyed it and we look forward to seeing you next time!

Clean and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

An exceptionally clean house, with comfortable furniture and beds, in a quiet neighborhood. It's everything you could want in a home away from home. The popcorn is a nice touch also!

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed it! Our central location is one of the best features of this home. Especially when you're exploring different areas. We were concerned about having a vacation rental 20-25 minutes from the beaches but our guests come to Florida for many other reasons and enjoy the easy access. Hope to see you again on your next trip.

Cute, comfortable house

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent the month of February at Duane Manor and we were both very happy with our accommodations. The house was modern, clean, and comfortable. I especially enjoyed being able to sit outside on the large deck and always being able to find a shady spot to read in.

Fran greeted us shortly after we arrived and responded quickly when we texted questions. We loved the welcome gift of Mookie's Kettle Korn!

We were pleased with the location as well. We found plenty to do in the areas of Safety Harbor, Dunedin and Tarpon Springs and there were some great bike trails nearby.

Quaint and Clean

  • 4 of 5

There was a giant bag of delicious Mookie's Marvelous Kettle Corn welcoming us. The house was conveniently located and very clean. My only wish is that there were mirrors other than in the bathrooms. Thanks Fran!

Owner's Response: We're glad you enjoyed your stay Kate and thanks for the suggestion on the mirrors. When you furnish a place you don't actually live in it's hard to think of all the basic necessities. We should probably spend a night or two over there!
