Great house with car port

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in this house for 13 weeks during my travel assignment with UF Health. I needed a place with a garage or car port to park my Corvette in the shade. This place was a great fit! The house is located in a quiet neighborhood with quick access to restaurants and grocery stores.

Even Better Than Expected!

  • 5 of 5

Five of us rented this house for two weeks before and then again after Christmas, to see family who lived in Gainesville. It turned out to be the perfect place for us and for those who visited. The house was clean, comfortable, well-appointed and with just about everything you could need to cook and entertain. The layout of the house allowed for privacy while others stayed up to watch TV or talk. The ample back yard allowed the young children a safe place to play and run. Neighbors were friendly as they walked by or jogged to a nearby walking trail. We drove most places and found it easy to navigate in Gainesville. Janis' recommendations for restaurants and other places were appreciated. She was available to answer any questions we had. We would recommend renting here, for short or long stays. Enjoy!

Great House

Home away from Home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this home for a second time. Like the first time, we enjoyed every minute. The home is clean and the kitchen furnished with all essential cooking tools. The home is conveniently located near the University of Florida, grocery stores and the mall. The owner is a pleasure to work with and very responsive. I would definitely recommend this home to friends.

Our favorite house in Gainesville

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at this house several times now and absolutely love it. It is always clean and very convenient to the many places we visit while in Gainesville. Janis is wonderful to work with and we feel we have developed a friendship over the course of time we have been renting.
