About Elizabeth Bolton
As a husband and wife team, we (Jim Post and Elizabeth Bolton), have owned and managed residential rental properties for about 30 years. Vacation rentals are a relatively new endeavor and we find that it is exciting to accommodate short term visitors with different needs and requirements. Jim is originally from New Jersey and grew up in Miami before pursuing a career in electrical engineering. His work took him to many places before coming to Gainesville. As a native Floridian and a recently retired UF professor, I believe Gainesville is absolutely the best place in Florida to live, learn and enjoy life. The community is vibrant and the student population keeps us young at heart. And when you need them, the medical facilities are without equal. We strive to meet the needs of our rental residents both short and long term. Our goal is to provide you with lodging that will make your stay comfortable and satisfying so that when you return to the area you will want to stay with us. Our philosophy is that we will only rent to you a place we would personally live in.
Elizabeth Bolton purchased this Condo in 2006
Why Elizabeth Bolton chose Gainesville
This property is the epitome of location preference for visitors desiring walking proximity to UF, Shands, Vet School and VA. These condos are perfect for Shands visitors, football and graduation weekends, conference participants, visiting scholars, students and parents who are looking for home style comforts with superb accommodations. Our condos are on first floor to allow easy access. The Summit House Condos have been a landmark in Gainesville for decades and are solidly built on the high ground in this part of Gainesville, hence the name Summit House.

Convenient to the hospital and university campus
Elizabeth, the property owner, worked hard to accommodate us when the property we booked became unavailable. She found a comparable condo in the same complex and communicated changes, even during a hurricane. I cannot speak to the condo in this listing since we were in a different unit, but the complex is very convenient to the hospital and walkable to the campus/stadium.
Still currently using the property and everything that has problem Miss Elizabeth has attended to in a very quick manner. Would certainly recommend to friends.
Great Location to Shands!
I rented this unit & another one for 10 days from Elizabeth as my husband was having Surgery at Shands. The location was perfect as I could walk to & from the hospital (took 10 min.). The unit was clean, well maintained & cozy. Elizabeth was great to deal with, very professional & she has a kind heart. Thank you! AS
Thank you for your words of appreciation. Great guests like you make being a landlord a positive and rewarding experience. I am so glad the condo worked out for you and that your husband is doing well.
Comfortable, Convenient, Clean
We found this property to be very comfortable and well suited for our stay in Gainesville. The owner was accessible when we had questions or needs. The only thing I would mention is the fact that it was not as quite a location as we thought, as it is close to a busy road and there was some sidewalk and pool work being done at the time of our stay. Aside from that it fit our needs very well.
Very impressed with property
Easy access and very nice place to stay. would stay again
I had the opportunity of staying at this condo for 10 weeks while working as a traveling physical therapist in Gainesville. The condo is conveniently located within walking distance to Shands and also very close to the VA. Elizabeth has taken very good care of this property, and is readily available to assist with any problems that may arise. I returned from work on a Friday evening one day to find the AC was out due to a storm that had hit the day before, and Elizabeth was able to have it back on and running within just a few hours. She also made the effort to bring me an additional parking pass when a friend came to visit. This condo is also very conveniently located right next door to the laundry facilities, minimizing the hassle. Overall I had a wonderful visit to Gainesville and I would highly recommend this condo, whether for a weekend or an extended stay.
The condo is centrally located close to downtown and the University of Florida. US 75 is about 3 miles and easily accessible for trips to central and south Florida for day trips or weekends. Try and visit the butterfly garden and the museum of natural history on the UF Campus for some really unusual displays that are unique in this part of the South. The cold water springs are a natural wonder and these are found in this part of Florida in abundance. Be sure to visit as many as you can as all are different. Once you swim in one of these you will never forget it. Also try tubing down the Itchetucknee River that separates Suwannee and Columbia County. The temperature will guarantee deep blood circulation for several hours after you get out. Do this only in summer months!! There is so much to see and do in this part of the state that gives a flavor of north Florida which is so different from the central and southern part of the state. Do drive around and get a view of the many heritage oaks that are native to our area. Everyone loves them and even the developers strive to protect them. Go see the alligators in the Paynes Prairie preserve. These guys are for real and they are huge. Don't worry, you can't feed them and they are fenced off but the habitat is all natural and exciting to see. Then you will know why the UF team is the Florida Gators!!
