About the property

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

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 these comfortable apartments. We have 14 1/1 apartments at the same complex. They are all the same size and have similar amenities. Please let us know if you would prefer a 1st floor or a 2nd floor option. Please see pictures for examples of our bedrooms, living areas, kitchens, and dining areas.

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.

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 While the outside of the condo buildings have an outdated 70s look, the inside of my fully renovated condo is very 2013!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 mattress with an aloe layer for a cooling effect. We have a blow-up mattress for additional guests.

On-site amenities include 1 pool 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 Peddie

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.

Susannah Peddie purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Susannah Peddie chose 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.

Great stay, great location

Susannah's condos are a great place to stay: clean, renovated, comfortable, with a great location. Susannah is responsive and accommodating, and I can recommend her properties without hesitation. If I am every back in town, I will certainly return!

Awesome property and fantastic owners!!

  • 5 of 5

We made reservations to stay here for the weekend to visit our 2 kids. The host, Susannah, was so incredibly helpful and accommodating! We absolutely loved the condo we stayed in. Super clean, plenty of extra personal touches made it a pleasure to stay here! Definitely plan on returning to this property(I think Susannah has 8 or so units, so at least 1 is more than likely avail. at any given time, which is great). Very quiet unit and complex- we used the pool Sun afternoon and had it to ourselves most of the day! Pool and laundry facilities directly across from building for added convenience. Centrally located in G'ville, so we were close to everything. Most importantly, we were so happy with the hospitality we received!!

AWESOME !!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our son was going in for surgery @ Shands Hospital. This apartment is located walking distance to the front door. The apartment played as headquarters for our get away from the hospital. Nice quite neighborhood, great room layouts, friendly neighbors, and great landlords. Susannah was completely awesome. Checking in on us to see our sons condition and even calling us at home to see how he was doing. I have used VRBO in Italy and the US., and this experience will make us keep using it.

Thank-you, awesome job....
