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 Florida

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.

In 2015, we've converted this to a vacation rental from a long term rental to share this special place with those vacationing in this area.

Too short a stay!

  • 5 of 5

This 2 bedroom/2 bath unit could not have been nicer. So well equipped even the chef in the family had everything she needed. The puppies loved being able to safely chase the squirrels inside the fenced in yard. Holly and Dale are the nicest people. We just wish we could have stayed longer and have already booked our time for next winter.

Best place to stay in Mount Dora

  • 5 of 5

Great location close to everything Mount Dora has to offer. The pictures of Holly's Hideaway don't do the place justice, because it's amazing in person, clean, comfortable and inviting. Will make this our new location to stay. Thanks Holly for everything.
