  • You will be extremely satisfied with these condos

    "My wife and I spent a week in Gainesville and wanted to avoid the hotel scene where you never feel at home. We found the Summit House condos on line and decided to give it a try. The price for a week was much cheaper than a hotel and the experience was delightful. Immediately after arrival the owner called us to make sure we arrived safely and to ask if we needed anything. The condos are spacious, extremely clean and have everything you could ever need in terms of dishes, silverware, cleaning supplies, large screen tv and very comfortable furniture. There are two swimming pools on the property for swimming and sun bathing. The condos are very close to the University of Florida campus so you can walk anywhere and avoid the hassle of trying to find a parking spot. They are also very close to the hospitals, numerous restaurants, taverns and shopping areas. The location is just ideal for almost anything you could want to do around Gainesville. If you need a safe, quiet, comfortable, spacious condo for a weekend, week or month, you will be very satisfied with the Summit House condos."

  • Perfect old school family vacation on the water!

    "We wanted a place close to Gainesville to see family and this was just what we needed. We had a wonderful time. Cathy, the owner, was so sweet and gracious. I felt like I was speaking to a dear friend. It was nice to be able to bring our two dogs along for the family fun and they got to enjoy the outside in the totally fenced in yard. The house was clean, spacious and comfortable. It may not have all the bells and whistles, but for the price, I couldn't have asked for more. Although there is internet access (which was appreciated, especially by my teens), we did our best to unplug and enjoyed cooking out, playing games, watching movies with the kids at night and hanging by the lake. The water was refreshing, clear and so relaxing. Loved seeing the fishes and the setting was beautiful and peaceful! I would definitely go back again with the family. It was a time we will never forget and always cherish."
