Car: Recommended

This private home is located just miles from UF, Santa Fe, and downtown Gainesville on a secluted cul-de-sac. With a corner lot, and fenced backyard, this home provides ample room for adults, kids, and pets.

If you are coming to watch a Gator game or if you are coming to tour campus with your kids, this property will allow you the comforts of a home away from home. In addition, a car is recommended, but not necessary as the nearest bus stop is a 1 minute walk down the street.

There are a number of amazing restaurants and bars in Gainesville, along with spectacular museums, and one of the largest enclosed butterfly gardens in the US. Just outside town are the largest grouping of class I springs in the world, offering spectacular scuba diving and tubing experiences.
