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. 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, parents and others 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. The proximity of this apartment to the major attractions in Gainesville such as downtown, Shands and North Florida Regional Hospitals, the University of Florida campus and the natural fresh water springs in the area make it an ideal place to study, write a thesis, relax in quiet privacy and use it as landing spot for rest, recovery or just about anything.

Nice place close to UF
Very repsonsive host
Thank you for your positive review. It was a pleasure hosting you and I hope you will come again.
Walk to Shands!
Elizabeth was great to deal with. Perfect location to Shands, I did not have a car & it was a 10 minute walk to the hospital. Unit was clean, comfortable & well maintained. Much better atmosphere than a hotel if even to shower, change & rest in between hospital visits. Thank you Elizabeth for your kindness! AS
Thank you Anne for being such a great guest. I am so glad the condo was good for your purpose of being close to Shands Hospital and that the amenities were to your liking.
Good location, clean, comfortable
The owner was very helpful, the apartment was in good shape, had a well-stocked kitchen, and the location was good. It had everything I needed for a month-long stay.
Clean, convenient 2 block walk to Shands Hospital.
Nice, conversant amenable property owner. I would stay there again.
Whatever you are looking for, Gainesville and North Florida most likely have it except snow and ice. There is a tourist information center which has lots of information about attractions especially local ones and there are lots of these.
