Interaction with Guests
I'm happy to answer any questions you have about Gainesville and getting around. I am a busy young professional but always happy to lend a hand. I also teach salsa so I will include a free lesson with every booking, just ask!
The historic Duckpond district is a great area of town. Very relaxed but still close to the bars and clubs. It has a lot of history, the place for college presidents and professors to live. It also has a great park right next to my house. It is a very safe area with no crime.
The house is 5 minute drive from the University of Florida campus (corner of 13th street and University Avenue) and a 5 minute walk from downtown nightlife.
Getting around by car is best, but you can walk to downtown easily and there is a bus route directly to campus that is pretty easy to catch.
Publix is a 5 minute walk as well for getting groceries and Walgreens is a 2 minute walk. Located on the east side of Gainesville, 10-minute drive from Gainesville Airport. Uber is now in Gainesville as well and I'm always happy to pick up/drop off if my schedule is free.
Other Things to Note
Flexible on check in/out times as long as no other guests are moving in. Just let me know.
I have a 2 year old dog named Loki, named after the Norse god of mischief, hehe. He's very sweet and loving and never goes into the guest room. There's no pet smell in the house, thankfully he doesn't smell like a dog!
Please no smoking. Pets are welcome as long as they are not aggressive or smelly :)
Rob was understanding of my schedule and very informative once I arrived to his location. The room was neatly stocked with coffee and tea and the bed was nice and comfortable. The neighborhood is amazing as well.
Our stay with Rob was great! All of the pics are accurate representations of the home. The house had a great feel and met our needs perfectly. The kitchen was well-stocked as was the bathroom. We found Rob (and his canine-partner, Loki) to be warm and inviting hosts. Additionally, Rob did a great job of being available and giving us space as one of us had to work for part of the time.
If all of this wasn't enough, this historic neighborhood is awesome. Highly walkable and close to everything. If this description suits your needs, look no further!
Rob was a great host and very knowledgeable about the area. We needed a place to stay for a night and it fit the bill.
My husband and I had a great stay at Rob's house. We arrived a bit later than we'd planned, but he was welcoming and very laid back. He did some research for us to figure out what was going on around town last night, and he gave good restaurant recommendations today--we really liked Daily Green for lunch. The house is adorable and very clean, stocked with toiletries for guests as well as coffee and tea. We enjoyed running in Rob's pretty, historic neighborhood this morning. Rob has a really sweet dog but says he keeps him away from guests who'd prefer not to be around him. We highly recommend staying with Rob and hope to stay there again sometime.
