Very nice place! This is one of the first places we've stayed at where they really go out of their way to think of all the details... water bottles in the fridge, coffee, shampoo, kleenex, instructions on everything, cable TV. If anything it's nicer in person than it appears in the photos.
An incredible place! We loved every second of our visit! I highly recommend to stay with Wendy! The bed is more comfortable than my own!!!! Overall ************* stars
Listing as described. Place was clean and cozy and had very good instructions.
My mother and I had an amazing stay with Wendy!!! Excellent hospitality, very precise instructions and easy access to everything I needed! Comfortable and clean space. If ever back in Gainesville I would not choose to stay anywhere else but here! Thank you so much!
This is a wonderful rental! Immaculate, quiet and very pleasant surroundings. Extremely convenient to the University of Florida. Wendy is a very gracious host and easy to communicate with. She provided coffee, bottled water and popcorn! I will definitely try to stay here again when I am back in Gainesville. Thank you, Wendy.
About the Host, Wendy
I have called Gainesville home since 1985 and have found my niche in this old Florida style home situated close to UF. While very centrally located and within walking distance to UF, shopping, etc the property is remarkably private. The apartment space was added in order to have a private living area for my elderly father to call home if he should no longer want to or be able to live independently. Well, either through good genes or good luck he remains very healthy and active and has no intentions to live here anytime soon! So in the meantime, rather than have the space sit empty all the time, would love to share it via airbnb.
