Overview

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 While the outside of the condo buildings have an outdated 70s look, the inside of my fully renovated condo is very 2013!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

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.

They both love Gainesville very much.

was ok

  • 3 of 5

Reasonably priced, spacious and pretty clean. Quick response and good service from the staff. Owner wanted people to rate 5 but really isn't a 5 star experience. The rental units are mixed in with actual condo owners who view guests in these short term rentals as a 'nuisance'. My car was damaged by a neighbor that didn't like me parking there..their car door was slammed into my car (my car is older so I don't care). However, I really got the feeling I wasn't wanted there. I guess I can understand actual owners not liking a motel experience, but this really ruined my stay. The grounds themselves were pretty shabby. Pool filled in with dirt, stray cats everwhere. Hallways of building L were grungy looking. The inside of the unit was very nice and recently remodeled. Location is good if you need to be close to the uni, but I had no use for that feature. Walls also paper thin.

Very pleasant stay

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were in Gainesville for his daughter's wedding. This was our first experience with home away. We were very happy with our stay. We did have to call maintence and they responded right away. I would not hesitate to do this again. Thank you Suzanna for pleasant stay.

A home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is comfortable and clean and very well equipped. Feels like a home away from home. I was relocating from PA to Gainesville and very happy I was able to stay in Susannah's rental until I purchased my home. It was very close to work for me as well as other amenities. Susannah is very prompt to respond and address any questions, concerns or issues that may pop up. I highly recommend contacting Susannah if you ever need a short term or long term stay in Gainesville. You will not be disappointed!

Highly recommend

  • 5 of 5

This was a very tastefully decorated and pleasant place to stay. It is certainly convenient to all the hospitals, and the campus. My father is at Oak Hammock,so it was just a stone's throw to get there. The apartment complex is very quiet. Enjoyed a very nice Christmas there. Would definitely stay there again.
