Clean, cozy home

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a wonderful stay here in this home. I returned to Gainesville for my college reunion and stayed the weekend here. The home was very clean and exactly as described in the description. There is a nice backyard and the neighborhood was very quiet. Would definitely recommend this listing!

Lovely home in central location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the house for a few nights while visiting our family. Absolutely loved the house, easy access, very clean, great location central to most of our usual spots in Gainesville, and had everything we needed amenity wise for our stay. Would recommend to any families in search of a quiet and comfortable stay in the Gainesville area.

My husband and I rented this property as a temporary home during a move. When we arrived we found that the home was not cleaned properly. There was food under the living room furniture and master bed. On our second night in the home, our son woke up to find a large roach crawling on him in bed. The next morning there were more roaches in the bathroom. I contacted the owner and asked to have an exterminator come. She had the housekeeper call me and I again asked for an exterminator. I was promised a call back the next morning once this was set up. I never received a call back from the housekeeper. When I informed the owner that we would be vacating the home and wanted our money back, the owner stated that since I had turned down housekeeping and an exterminator, she would not be returning our money. I informed the owner that I would be willing to accept a 50% refund, however no refund was offered.

Owner's Response: I have always had 5 Star Ratings with great reviews and returning guest, therefore I am surprised with your review. Immediately upon speaking with you, I ordered the services of the housekeeper and exterminator, but you refused them an appointment and access to the home. I feel I made every effort to remedy your concerns in an expeditious way, as I do take pride in offering clean and comfortable accommodations. Immediately, upon your departure I sent the housekeeper to inspect, she found no evidence of bugs, but again cleaned the house thoroughly. Also, the exterminator sprayed inside and outside for precautionary measures. I wish you all the best and hope to see you again when your travels bring you to Gainesville.

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.
