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.

Perfect Location, Beautiful Home, Mt Dora is a Must See!

  • 5 of 5

Upon our return to the "Dora" house, we fell in love with it all over again! Mount Dora for Thanksgiving is a family tradition for us and it gives us the opportunity to spend the holiday with four generations of our family! This beautiful home, located on a cul-de-sac near downtown Mt Dora, allows us to host Thanksgiving for our family and include our pets too! The beautifully landscaped fenced back yard is perfect for our pets and kiddo and the open kitchen/living area is great for entertaining. We LOVE the small front patio for early morning coffee and the screened garage sitting area is perfect for game night! The owners are amazing and go above and beyond to enusre that your stay is enjoyable. We love this property and will return as often as possible!

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.
