Owner info

Gainesville Home Suites LLC

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: My husband, Jim Post, and I own and manage this property. We have just recently started converting our rental condos into furnished units. It has been an interesting and rewarding experience and we have followed our long term rental philosophy: we would not rent a property that we personally would not live in. You can be sure you will get a clean and attractive unit that meets our standards and yours too.

Why the Owner Chose Gainesville, FL, USA:
The proximity of this condo to the major attractions in Gainesville such as the Hippodrome, down town entertainment and restaurants, Gainesville Historic District and most of all UF and Shands make this condo an ideal place to stay while you are away from home.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Location is the unique aspect of this property. And it comes with many amenities not found in many locations so close to Shands and UF.
