Gainesville house description

PLEASE CHECK OUR CALENDAR OF AVAILABILITY FIRST. WE DO OUR BEST TO KEEP IT UP TO DATE.

This two-story, 3/2 home is the perfect place for you to stay during your visit to Gainesville. The home is just under 1800 square feet so there is plenty of room for the whole family or friends.

We are located just a few blocks northwest of Main Street & University Avenue. Walk to downtown theatre, dining, bars & shopping! For a price comparable to a nearby hotel room, you can have an entire house with a separate living room, dining room, sun room, full kitchen, master bedroom with private bath, newly renovated second bathroom and two upstairs bedrooms. Plus, the house includes a fenced yard and off-street parking! Cable TV in all bedrooms and hi-speed wireless internet are also included.

About a mile from the University of Florida, you can stroll up University Avenue or hop on the bus and you’re on campus in minutes - no parking hassles! GO GATORS!

Plus, the 'West House' is only a short drive to many other Gainesville attractions including several well-known scuba diving sites, Paynes Prairie Nature Preserve, several fresh water springs for tubing, snorkeling or swimming, and much more!

Please note: The West House is located in a very pedestrian friendly area, close to downtown nightlife. While it is generally quiet during the week, activity in the area does increase on weekends and especially event weekends.
