Property description

Great for families and very peaceful surroundings.

Visiting Gainesville for UF sports, graduation, Shands, or sightseeing? We have the perfect place for you. Come back and relax after your event- or watch your event from the flat-screen TVs in the living room and bedroom. The house is newly renovated as of the summer of 2012 (it's 1250 SF heated/ cooled).

You can walk to downtown bars and restaurants. The historic Thomas Center is just 3 short blocks away. We are also just a 10 minutes drive from La Chua Trail (a Florida State Park) where you are guaranteed to see 1 to 100 alligators.

We are also just 2 miles from UF campus, the Swamp, and the O'Connell Center.

The owners live next door to the house, and can be easily reached via phone and e-mail.

One bedroom has a king bed and the other bedroom has a queen bed- perfect for families or for friends sharing a home.

The backyard is fenced in and maintained by the owners, and connects to the backyard of the owners (the backyard is meticulously maintained with beautiful seasonal flowers and greenery).

*Please note that football weekends, Gator Nationals, and Graduation weekends are considered special event weekends (up to 3 nights, or early check-in/ late-check out for a Friday arrival and Sunday departure).
