  • Excellent landlord; Nice neighbors; Quiet neighborhood; Perfect for 1 or 2 people; Great price

    "I stayed in Gainesville for 10 weeks with my fiancé while working on our last internships for graduate school. We had accommodations to stay elsewhere in Gainesville which turned out to be not a good set up for us. I found this apartment on VRBO and called the landlord to ask if we could view the place that night since we were trying to get out of our other accommodations and really wanted to see the apartment before we booked. The landlord was very understanding and met us an hour later to view the apartment. She was extremely helpful throughout our stay and was willing to help us with anything we needed while in town. The apartment itself is perfect setup for 1 or 2 people. It has everything you need from a comfortable bed, wifi internet, a large TV, kitchen table, and nice loveseat/recliner. The place also had everything you need to cook - pots and pans, utensils, a blender, coffee pot, toaster oven, full oven, microwave, refrigerator, freezer, etc. If you can think of it and cook with it, it is most likely there for your use. There was also paper towels, napkins, toilet paper, body wash, and other useful items there for our use which would be especially helpful if you were only staying for a weekend. The apartment is located in a quiet neighborhood and most of our neighbors seemed to be retirees or families. We were both studying for board exams while in town so the quiet atmosphere was greatly appreciated. There is a nice private patio out the backdoor with a large shade tree and a small table. It is located less than 10 minutes from downtown and the University of Florida. I would highly recommend this property for anyone looking to stay in Gainesville for a short or extended period of time. I can't state enough how helpful and polite the landlord was during our stay, she definitely went above and beyond to make our time in Gainesville enjoyable."

    "We were excited to stay in Gainesville and be close to the campus for Game Day! Elizabeth ha d many touches travelers don't think about - but surely appreciate. There were towels, toothpaste, etc. for the bathroom. There was coffee for the maker. The place was clean and the beds were incredibly comfortable. Thanks so much, Elizabeth! We will look you up again when in town!"

  • Definitely a Five Star Lake House!

    "Perfect for the family(and extended family)! We enjoyed the comfort of the indoors and the "roughing it" in the outdoors! The dock and beach area along with the large yard area are perfect for a family to get away together without being "all together". Some of us would fish, a couple of us went out in the boat, while the kids would play along the sandy beach. We enjoyed the outdoor ping pong, watching the beautiful sunset and built a campfire for smores! The pinball machines and dvd players are a plus for indoor fun. Great living area for getting together for a movie night! We appreciated the downstairs bedroom for its privacy for our parents who joined us for a night.The house comes filled with basic supplies to get you started, plenty of bedding and towels, very clean! Thank you for your hospitality Greg, we will be seeing this five star lake house again!"
