Me and my wife stayed in Susannah's apartment for 3 weeks. It was a great place. Answered all our expectations. The neighborhood is nice and quiet. The apartment is well equipped (kitchen, TV, towels ect.) and very clean. Air-conditioning works great. Susannah was very nice. She was very considerable regarding the price for the long period as well as for my many changes.
In one word: "recommended!"
Susannah is the most gracious host! She ensures that everything is perfect upon check in and throughout your stay. Her places are always extremely clean and so inviting. I feel right at home every time I stay, which is the reason I keep going back.
The apartment was as described, comfortable and with all the amenities we needed. We especially appreciated that Susannah had multiple units in the same location, and switched us before we arrived to a more desirable/quiet unit. She also gave us the option of a late check out as the unit was not rented immediately upon our check out.
This was our first experience booking with AirBnB, so we were a little bit nervous. Susannah was an awesome host from start to finish! Very organized, welcoming, and thorough. The condo was very clean and comfortable. The neighborhood was quiet and there was plenty of parking. The furnishings and decor were very inviting. The addition of her own professional photography was an added bonus. I would not hesitate to recommend her condos to anyone, as a matter of fact, I have already started to spread the word!
Place was great and Susannah was so accommodating! Allowed us to check in a bit early and even offered for us to check out late - even though we didn't need to. The place was exactly what we needed for a quick gameday trip to Gainesville.
I even left something in the bathroom but was running behind for a flight so Susannah offered to mail it to me - such a great host!!
I had a comfortable stay at Susannah's condo. The place is just as what is described. If you work short term or visit Shands, this is an ideal place.
Susannah has been a wonderful host. She attends details, and responds to all issues on a very timely fashion. I will recommend this place.
The apartment is great!! Susannah has it prepare with all the amenities needed to make the stay really comfortable, and it is clean. Moreover, she is very nice and is always available when you have any question or need something for her. The apartment is very well located, close to the UF where it is possible to take buses to go anywhere. I would like to thank her hospitality.

About the Host, Susannah
I am a nature photographer, super happy hostess to out-of-town guests, dress designer (Strawberry Blonde Clothing), wife, mother, etc... and I love to help people get to know Gainesville and all it has to offer. I strive to earn a 5-star review from all guests, and have recently earned Superhost Status from AirBNB, so you will be in good hands.
I regularly write photo articles for HOME Magazine (in which you can find great things to do in Gainesville). I take very good care of my guests by making recommendations for restaurants, things to do, etc... I have been a landlord for quite a few years, and have many repeat customers and referrals. My photography company is called SP Fine Prints, which you can find if you use a search engine. I look forward to hearing from you.
