Gainesville apartment description

Need a place to stay during a graduation or a football weekend? Wintering in Florida and want a convenient and comfortable place to stay? Visiting a patient at Shands Hospital? Need a corporate apartment? Look no further than this comfortable apartment.

If you want to stay within walking distance of Shands Hospital, the VA Hospital, the Veterinarian School, and University of Florida campus, this is the place for you. No hassle, no parking headaches, and all the amenities you need for a short or long stay in Gainesville.

The longer your stay, the lower your daily rate (the nightly rate is $125/ night, but the weekly rate is $72/ night + taxes and the monthly rate is $50/ night + taxes). Football weekends and other special event weekends are $500 + taxes for the weekend.

We are also always happy to give suggestions for favorite restaurants, Gainesville activities, day-trips, etc... we strive to make sure that all of our guests have a 5-star experience. The owners are very involved in the community, so they keep up to date on Gainesville activities and happenings and pass along suggestions to their guests.

You have two fantastic restaurant areas just 5 minutes away. Downtown Gainesville is just a 5 minute drive away, and the Archer Road restaurants are just 5 minutes away as well. If you prefer to travel by bus, there is a bus stop just steps away from the apartment.

This apartment is on the first floor for easy access, and is newly remodeled with all new furniture and electronics. You will be extremely comfortable. While the outside of the condo buildings have an outdated 70s look, the inside of my fully renovated condo is very 2013! And the location couldn't be better.

The apartment is fully furnished to accommodate 4 people. The bedroom has a queen bed with a very comfortable Tempur-Pedic type mattress with an aloe layer for a cooling effect. We have a blow-up mattress for additional guests. We have furnished a Keurig coffee maker for easy coffee making in the mornings.

On-site amenities include 2 pools and 2 laundry facilities. The apartment is 575 SF. We are also always available if you need suggestions for outings, restaurants, etc...

The owner is an avid nature photographer, so is very familiar with all of the great spots to see alligators, bison, horses, birds, flowers, beautiful Oak Hammocks... you name it! You can check the local HOME Magazine: Living in the Heart of Florida (their magazine can be read from the website) to see her write-ups on local nature spots

                              About: Susannah and Brian are both Florida natives (Brian is from Gainesville and Susannah is orginally from Lake Wales). Susannah is a mom and an avid nature photographer and loves to visit all of the beautiful parks and gardens in Gainesville (Paynes Prairie, Kanapaha Gardens, city parks, etc...). She also writes and furnishes pictures for a local nature column in each issue of HOME Magazine, a wonderful local Gainesville magazine. She loves to take nature walks. She also volunteers a lot for the community and serves on the boards of the University of Florida Performing Arts, Junior League of Gainesville, Cade Museum for Creativity and Invention, and the Gainesville Community Foundation. Brian is in medical supply sales. He loves to fish, sail, and pretty much do anything water-related. They both love Gainesville very much.

                              Why Gainesville:
                              We chose this location based on its location - convenient to Shands, the Vet School, and the Veterans Hospital, while also close to downtown and many restaurants.
