About cassie Branske

I met my husband while visiting a friend in Jacksonville. We had our first date in Mt Dora in 2005 and went to Pisces Rising. We got married in 2008. He is now retired from the TPC Sawgrass in Ponte Vedra, FL and I work for Publix Supermarket's. We have 3 dogs and a cat. We enjoy visiting friends in Mount Dora and enjoying what this quaint town has to offer.

cassie Branske purchased this villa in 1992

Why cassie Branske chose Central Florida

My mother and I bought this villa in 1992. She passed away in 2009 and I wanted to keep the villa because I have spent the last 20 years off and on in this wonderful town. I thought turning the villa into a vacation rental would be the perfect answer. My husband and I live in Jacksonville, FL and love visiting Mount Dora for the different festival's that the town offers. This town is especially beautiful during the holidays. There will always be a special place in my heart for the town because my mother loved it.

What makes this villa unique

We love the villa’s location. It is within walking distance to Lake Dora to view the spectacular sunset. The neighborhood is very quite and it’s nice hearing the birds singing outside the bedroom door in the mornings. We love sitting on the patio in the evenings enjoying the peaceful and relaxing neighborhood that the villa is surrounded by with a glass of wine.

Great value for the Mount Dora Area

  • 5 of 5

Everything was available listed and in good condition. The location was only about 1 mile from everything, the neighborhood quiet and easy to move in and out of. Would recommend the home to any visitor to the area.

We had a wonderful stay at the house. We arrived in town early and Cassie allowed us to check in early. The house is charming, well kept and clean. I would recommend this place to anyone! Thank you Cassie!

A Little Bit of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

After a drive from Maine to Florida we walked into the most inviting home rental. Everything was clean and decorated in a lovely fashion. This was a perfect condo for my husband and I. Our one problem was that our stay was not long enough.

The owner was very attentive. Although we never met she kept us well informed through e-mail which helped us greatly.

Great home from home

  • 5 of 5

This really was a delightful place to stay. The house is beautifully furnished and decorated and it is kept spotlessly clean. It is on a quite residential street and only a 5 minute drive to the center of Mont Dora - very convenient. We highly recommend it.

Absolutely perfect get away!

  • 5 of 5

We were beyond lucky enough to find this gem in our search for a vacation rental! We traveled to central Florida to visit family during the Easter holiday. Four generations on my husbands side of the family were able to enjoy a long weekend together as this property placed us in the middle of everyone. My 4 year old daughter calls it her "Dora house" and wants to know when we are going back! The house is meticulously kept, comfortable and cozy. The fenced back yard is a parent/pet owners dream! The location is perfect as it provides easy access to "downtown" but is far enough away that it is tranquil and quiet. There is a fabulous playground down the street and the shops in downtown Mt Dora are fantastic. The kitchen was perfect for us and was nicely stocked with all of the necessities one needs to cook! The sitting area in the converted garage was perfect for morning coffee and the newspaper! The owners are amazing! They were able to answer all of our questions before and during our stay. They provided prompt communication and were extremely helpful during our stay! We look forward to staying here again in the very near future and highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a vacation rental in the area.
