5/5 Excellent

Perfect place for a fun getaway
My mom and I came here for a girls getaway weekend. This house was just perfect! The location is super convenient to historic Mount Dora and all its shops and restaurants. It’s decorated so nicely, and it’s such a comfortable place to stay. During our stay we somehow accidentally clogged the toilet, and the property owner couldn’t have been nicer in getting it fixed in 20 minutes. We will be back!

5/5 Excellent

True 5 Stars
This isn’t a house that someone lives, then rents out every once in a while. This was built with a purpose. We felt like the Gertrude was built specifically for our stay! It is extremely convenient and an easy walk to downtown restaurants, shops, festivals, lakefront, etc. If you are a seasoned traveler, then this is for you. When we arrived, we literally backed into the included garage, and never had to worry about our vehicle or parking. Talia has this place set up nicely with simplicity and necessities. If you forget something, there’s a good chance that Talia has it waiting for you anyway.
