Location, location, location.
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. Our condos at Summit House are our perfect properties for budget, convenience, and comfort. The longer your stay, the lower your daily rate- typically is either the same price as a hotel room or half the price of a hotel room, depending on the length of stay (but also comes with a full kitchen, dining area, and living area).
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.
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.
You will be extremely comfortable. While the outside of the condo buildings have an outdated 70s look, all of my condos have been renovated on the inside! 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 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

Excellent Property, Location & Customer service!
I was Super Impressed with this property beginning with the excellent Attention & Customer service offered by Susannah & ending with the cleanliness & beautiful decorated property! A private covered parking is definitely a Plus! We were desperately looking for a place to stay because of hurricane Irma from South FL & I must say Susannah's extended courtesies were a life saver to say the least! Thank You for being so kind in our time of need. I will definitely return & stay here again & highly recommend it anyone visiting Gainsville! Jackson Square property was the Best! Kudos to your management! Continue taking Pride in your properties, your dedication & commitment is evident! I will see you again soon as my niece attends UF, I will be here for many games etc. 😉 Again I can't Thank You enough for the extended courtesies, It speaks Volume!
Excellent service and well-maintained
The owner was the most accommodating I've ever encountered! The condo was beautifully maintained, and we really appreciated having a full kitchen to use for our time there. Parking was readily available, and neighbors were all very friendly.
Thanks for a great experience, we'll definitely use your condo the next time we visit Gainesville!
Great location, comfortable and nicely decorated!
We stayed at this unit for two nights while attending an event in the Gainesville area. It is roomy, in convenient location to restaurants and bars and very-well furnished. It was an added bonus that the building is attached to a parking garage with specific spaces assigned for the condo -- we never had to worry about finding parking!
Unfortunately, the review is not for this property:
The condo has plenty of open parking spaces on the property and each guests gets 2 guest passes and they are in a wonderful location (next to Shands, UF, the Vet school, the VA Hospital), but this condo does not have an attached garage or assigned parking and it is not downtown. Just didn't want anyone to get confused. Thanks so much!
When my husband had a stroke while we were on vacation in Clearwater, Florida, he was taken to Shands Hospital in Gainesville. Our children came down from Minnesota for a short time and wanted to find long-term housing for me before they had to return home. They found this condo on VRBO and communicated by email with Susannah even though she was on vacation with her family out west. She enabled me to move in right away and promised to take care of my housing until my husband was released. And she kept her word, despite the fact that I had to move to another location for the last night of my stay. And it happened to be graduation weekend, one of the busiest times of the school year. She took that burden off my shoulders at a time when all I could concentrate on was my husband's health.
The condo was clean, comfortable, and beautifully decorated. The kitchen was supplied with all the basic necessities. A notebook on the counter held all the information needed to deal with parking, laundry, restaurants, etc.
I never met Susannah, but I will be eternally grateful to her for all she did for me when I was facing a family tragedy.
It is always a pleasure to work with families who have relatives staying at Shands. I am always so happy to be able to offer a convenient, clean and cozy place as guests need a respite when leaving the hospital for the night. I provide everything possible to make guests' stays the best that they can be. Always. I will always do the same for future guests. Thank you!
This property is walking distance to Shands - UF Health, the VA Hospital, and the UF Veterinarian School. Also walking distance from the SE corner of UF Campus, close to the Hawthorne biking trail, and just 5 minutes from downtown Gainesville.
