Recently-renovated 2 Bedroom/1 bath ground-floor apartment with full kitchen. Near Gaines Street, Florida State Capitol, FSU & FAMU, Mag Lab & Innovation Park in the Stearns Mosely neighborhood. Can walk to FSU & FAMU stadiums and to the restaurants and nightspots of College Town and Gaines Street. Cascades Greenway with its multi-use trail and playground are close by, along with Proof Brewery & Black Dog Coffee Shop at Railroad Square.

The space

Two Bedroom ground floor apartment (one bedroom with queen bed and one with twin bed) one bath apartment, about a half mile from both FSU & FAMU Campuses, and about one mile from the Capitol complex. The apartment has cable TV (with very basic channels) with wireless internet and thousands of movies via Netflix (and lots of other online stations on Roku), central air and heat, well equipped kitchen with granite countertop and gas stove. Shower has chlorine filter and huge showerhead. Tankless water heater means showers can last as long as you like. The queen bed is super comfortable Simmons Beautyrest and you will sleep amazingly well on it. The twin bed is comfortable as well.

This apartment complex is just a couple of blocks from Gaines Street, but is in a quiet neighborhood. Most guests love the people and the apartment complex (read the reviews) but it's not upscale by any means, and has a hipster vibe. The residents are all super nice and will go out of their way to help you. The condo owners all know each other and have a great community garden you should visit.

You can sit out on your private porch and watch the birds and the sunset. Apartment is clean and was completely renovated in 2008. Large closet, and lots of storage. No pets or smoking is allowed. Floors are painted concrete.

Our apartment is close to Gaines Street and Railroad Avenue (lots of good locally owned restaurants) and Railroad Square Art Park--center of Tallahassee's art scene. But Tallahassee is unfortunately not yet a great walkable city and you will probably like having a car or calling Uber to get to most shopping, dining, and attractions.

Be sure to check the Guidebook I prepared for things to do and places to shop and eat in the area. College Town, just a few blocks away, which features bars and restaurants--bagels, pizza, and more.

Guest access

Guests will have complete access to the apartment, and also have access to the grounds and to a shared coin-laundry. There is parking in lot next to the building.

Interaction with guests

I look forward to meeting you when you arrive, and will give you the access code to the apartment. I will be available by phone or text to answer any questions or concerns. I am also happy to offer recommendations for places to eat and things to do.

Other things to note

Be sure to check the Guidebook I prepared for things to do and places to shop and eat in the area. College Town is just a few blocks away, with lots of bars and restaurants Also check out Proof Brewery, Crum Box, and Black Dog Cafe in Railroad Square.

Never judge a book by its cover. Outside of the residence seems a little sketchy at first, but had the best stay ever! Thank you Ruthie for letting us stay.

Our apartment complex seems a little rustic on the outside but is really a great community if Tallahassee locals!

If you have a student at FSU, the location of this apartment is centrally located with a rustic and artsy feel!

My 13 year old loved the big climbing tree in the back, walking around Lake Elberta, playing in the creek, watching the trains, playing ping pong and air hockey in the community game room. The neighbors were all very friendly and most were professional working people. We felt very safe here even while enjoying the tranquility of a secluded neighborhood tucked away in the midst of the city.

Ruthie was very attentive during my stay. The value was great and the location even better. I would definitely stay there again.

We were worried about the isolation of the property at first but once we drove around we realised what a great location it was and we were quite happy. It was a quiet and comfortable place.

Response from Ruthie:
Glad you enjoyed your stay. It is amazing to be within view of the FSU Stadium and close to Gaines St but yet tucked away in a quiet pocket neighborhood with giant live oaks.

I work as business manager and publicist for my husband who is a national-touring Blues musician. I just retired after working 28 years in the rental office at Railroad Square Art Park, just a few blocks from the apartment. I like to listen to live music, read, write, cook, garden, hike, and travel. I am happy to share my knowledge of fun things to do in Tallahassee and great little local shops, music venues, and restaurants. I travel a lot with my husband, so I can totally relate to how important it is to have a restful convenient place to stay (with a full kitchen too).
