About Florentine Fragoso

I grew up in New England and I have lived in Florida for 28 yrs and I fell like when I moved to Mount Dora to open my primitive antigue shop it just felt like home, I have 27 yrs in the grocery business and I was a chef at a private school for 2 yrs. I love the community and arts and culture we have here ,It's a great place to live and visit.

Florentine Fragoso purchased this house in 2014

Why Florentine Fragoso chose Central Florida

This historical 1920's house was originally a boarding house.It has been a pottery place a bead shop and a primitive shop. I have tried to preserve its beauty and culture.It's a great old house with a lot of character,and charm.

What makes this house unique

This property has a amazing large front porch that over looks town.Beautiful oak trees.Original hard wood floors. Great clawfoot tub.Awesome old world charm.Its like stepping back in time.

Enchanting cottage in the heart of Mt Dora

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful experience. The boarding house is adorable and quite charming. All the comforts of home, very clean and cozy. I loved all the little details. Great location, just a few blocks from downtown Mt Dora. Tina was wonderful - very gracious and accommodating. I would definitely recommend staying here

Ideal Location and Cozy Home

  • 5 of 5

Great setting in a historic Florida town. The home is only a short walk to charming shops and dinning. The rental is very clean and well maintained. Truly a home away from home. Owner is great and deserves five stars as well. This rental is a top favorite.

A Perfect Location For a Family Getaway in Mt. Dora

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is large, spacious and ideal for family getaways. There are two good sized bedrooms with comfortable queen-sized beds, and another long room with two single beds end to end. In addition, there are two full bathrooms, one quite unique, with an antique claw-foot tub and shower! There's also a living room wth a tv that has Netflix! The apartment has a fully equipped kitchen. There are two central a/c units with separate thermostats, so you can set the two sides of the apartment to your comfort. There are two balconies overlooking the street, one quite large with a table and chairs, perfect for morning coffee! Tina supplies everything you could need for a comfortable stay and to make you feel welcomed. She even provides some snack items, in case you arrive hungry, and a nice bottle of wine in case you arrive thirsty! There's a Kueric coffee maker and a variety of coffees and creamers for your enjoyment, and sodas in the fridge! Tina has thought of everything. Be sure to check out her wonderful antique store downstairs. The apartment is real convenient to the downtown area, located on the only two short blocks north on the main street.

The only possible downside to this location is that it's on the second floor, above the store. It would not be handicap accessible or suitable for someone with limited mobility. If stairs are no problem for you, than this is your place in Mount Dora! I highly recommend it!
