Property description

Great for families and groups of friends.

I have 6 similar 2/2 condos at The Palms condominiums- all are beautifully decorated and are spacious and convenient.

Visiting Gainesville for UF sports, graduation, Shands, vacation, 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 this beautiful condo. These condos were built in 2008 and are steps away from local restaurants and bars, and also walking distance from UF.

If you don't want to worry about lodging for football season, you can rent the house for the entire season and leave your things there.

With granite countertops, high 10' ceilings, 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, and 2 walk-in closets, these condos have plenty of space to spread out. We also have a washer and dryer in each condo. 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.

The condos are also just 11 blocks from UF campus, and less than 20 blocks from the Swamp and the O'Connell Center.

The owners also live in downtown Gainesville, 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 (bedroom configurations may vary depending on which of the 6 condos booked).

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

**Please also note that downtown since the condos are located in downtown Gainesville, there may be occasional noise from downtown bars/ clubs- I have provided box fans in every bedroom as white noise as well as sound machines. This message applies only to the east facing condos in the building. A few guests have reported noise, but I have all the supplies necessary for light sleepers, just in case.

Gainesville is home to many cultural activities- the UFPA (University of Florida Performing Arts) hosts 2+ international/ national performances each week, the Museum of Natural History has a beautiful butterfly rainforest, the Harn Museum of Art has many pieces from the Masters, and much more.

Gainesville is also home to many Florida State Parks where alligators, bison, deer, turkey and many types of birds can be viewed. We also have a great botanical garden, Kanapaha Gardens, as well as a beautiful downtown historic district.

After you book your stay, I will provide a complete guide for things to do in Gainesville.
