Comfortable, Affordable, and Convenient

We have 14 1/1 condos at the same location- all are the same size and have similar amenities. Please let us know if you prefer a 1st or 2nd floor and we will do our very best to accommodate your preference. The pictures show a variety of our condos. After confirming your reservation, we can let you know which condo will be assigned- and you are welcome to message us your preference.

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.

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 second floor, 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 While the outside of the condo buildings have an outdated 70s look, the inside of my fully renovated condo is very 2015! 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. We have a blow-up mattress for additional guests.

On-site amenities include 2 pools 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 originally 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!

                                                          Maura E M.

                                                          The property was exactly as promised. The owner responded quickly to questions. The instructions for picking up keys were clear and everything went smoothly. Would highly recommend staying at any of this owners properties. Thanks!

                                                          Not worth the $

                                                          The condo was clean, but the unit itself is run down. Foe the price we paid, it should have been spot on in good condition. There were NO HANGERS in the closet, but staff did respond quickly. Outside condo, run down and dirty

                                                          We learned from my family,who we were visiting, that we were staying in "the Duck Pond" area of Gainesville and it was one of the nicest places in the city. It was a lovely place and close to everything. It was immaculate and comfortable. You will be happy with Susannah's attention to detail and helpfulness.
