About Lisa Caravette

Both nurses, we needed a getaway where we could relax, meet new friends and enjoy nature. We found all of that in Mt. Dora.

Lisa Caravette purchased this villa in 2012

Why Lisa Caravette chose Central Florida

This house called our name. The vintage charm was exactly what we were looking for. It is what you think of in a home in Mt. Dora. It needed some tender loving care and we gave it that with hard work, a hammer and a paintbrush or two.

What makes this villa unique

The location is perfect. Two short blocks to downtown, yet a quiet street. Easy walk to the lake, docks, lighthouse, kids' park and nature path and boardwalk. Pick up your groceries on the way in and never drive again!

Second Stay at the Cara Mia Property #433574

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

We were originally booked for another property (The Tree House #748448) but we were delighted when this house was available for us for the Mount Dora 1/2 Marathon Weekend. The owner moved us over to the Cara Mia. The location is perfect for walking over to the race start & walking back from the race finish. It makes it simple to lead the Grandchildren over to see Mom, Dad & Uncle cross the finish line. The backyard is a real plus with a nice covered deck. We collectively decided we will try to get this house again for next year's 1/2 Marathon. It has become our family tradition.

Great house, great location!

  • 5 of 5

The house was exactly as advertised - full of character and charm. Location couldn't be better for visiting quaint Mt. Dora with a very short walk one way to downtown and the other to Gilbert Park and the marina. Lisa and Peter were great hosts and even left us a bottle of wine in the frig to start our visit off right!

Just perfect...

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

My mom and I spent a girls getaway here at the Tree House and it was absolutely perfect!! So close to town, cottage has everything you need and the owners are wonderful. We have been to Mount Dora 4 other times and have started at the inn's and a few B&B's... This by far was our favorite place! We loved being able to lounge and relax when we wanted... Cook our wonderful meals together and just enjoy ourselves. The Christmas decorations were perfect and so was the fabulous marina, right out back, that had the most spectacular lights we have ever seen!! So many wonderful memories... We cannot thank you enough. See you again next year!!

Thank You,

Michelle

Amazing historical house

  • 5 of 5

What a beautifully restored house from the 1800's. It was so classy and location was great. Could see the water from the house and walking distance to everything. Stay should have been longer....so much to see and do. Did the Craig Cat tour..just a short stroll away.

Mount Dora Tree House

  • 5 of 5

Lisa and Peter were very helpful in providing information and recommendations for our stay. The house was very nice, and in a great location to downtown. If you are looking for a vintage home, within walking distance of everything in downtown Mount Dora, this is a great option. The owners were very easy to get a hold of, and responded to any questions or concerns we had. Thank you!
