Gainesville Home Suites LLC
Year Purchased: 2006
About the owner: 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.
Why the Owner Chose Gainesville, FL, USA:
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.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Location is the unique benefit of this property plus the accommodating landlords who personally make sure your visit is exactly what you want it to be. In the heart of beautiful Central Florida, close to downtown Gainesville, major highways - US 75 and 441, UF and Santa Fe College, museums, live theatre, restaurants, wildlife preserves and natural resource areas. There is something interesting, educational, entertaining for every season here in North Central Florida and Gainesville has a major share of the attractions for every season.
