About the Property

House, 1 Bedroom + Other (See Description), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Great for families, and nothing but rave reviews from all guests!

Visiting Gainesville for UF sports, graduation, Shands, or sightseeing? We have the perfect place for you. Come back and relax after your event- or watch your event from the flat-screen TVs in the living room and bedroom. The house is newly renovated as of the summer of 2011 (it's 775 SF heated/ cooled).

You can walk to downtown bars and restaurants. We are also just a 10 minutes drive from La Chua Trail (a Florida State Park) where you are guaranteed to see 1 to 100 alligators.

We are also just 2 miles from UF campus, the Swamp, and the O'Connell Center.

The owners live next door to the house, and can be easily reached via phone and e-mail.

Also, please note that the 'convertible bed' is a queen sized blow-up mattress (with linens and pillows provided) and can be placed in the living room/ couch area. Pack-n- plays can fit in the bedroom.

Also, for extra safety we have an alarm system installed in the house which can be activated by guests.


*Prices may vary for event weekends (football, graduation, Gatornationals...).

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: Brian and Susannah are both Florida natives. They have lived in Gainesville since 2002 and know the area quite well. Susannah is an avid nature photographer and full-time manager of her 19 short-term rental properties in Gainesville.

Why the Owner Chose Duckpond, Gainesville, FL, USA:
Managing my short-term properties is my full-time job (not a side job)- I have 19 vacation/corporate housing/ short-term rental properties and have full-time staff to help me, which means that you will always be taken care of. I live within 10 minutes of all of my properties (and in the case of the bungalow, 10 seconds) so am easily accessible.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Downtown living is fantastic! We love being able to talk to all of the local, delicious restaurants.
