If you are visiting Mt Dora for a day and you are female...go! Make that appointment! While travelling solo, I called on a Saturday morning to see if they could get me in. They were booked BUT placed me on hold...came back to say that they would fit me in and that the owner, Donna, would be doing my 90 minute massage! The place is so cute and everyone that was working there was super nice.
Donna did a supberb massage - throwing in some extras- and even doing some techniques that I had not experienced before. She was great! I felt so relaxed and rejuvenated!
Since they were booked, they offered the jaccuzi soak after my massage. Take advantage of this-so freeing and so relaxing!
Essentials is busy- but you never feel it. They seem to treat each and every customer like a queen. Explains why they continue to be successful after 9 years...
I was travelling solo and they even suggested dinner at Al's in Tavares---only about 6-8 minutes away! Watching the seaplanes take off and land was fun and the food good....a great recommendation from Donna and staff!
