Although we only stayed there for one night, I can say that our overall experience was pleasant. David was quite courteous and the space was comfortable. The bed were quite comfortable and David had plenty of towels for our personal use. Also, I was very concerned about sleeping …

Response from David:
Sorry about the few bugs or the untidiness of the down stairs. I do a vacuum and walk through before guests arrive. I must have just missed some items. My apologies.The upstairs where the guests stay I feel was very acceptable. Recently I have been purging years of accumulation so the down stairs (my space) is a bit messy and cluttered. Bugs by the entrance or occasionally in the house, we live in florida. It is the epicenter of entomology next to the Amazon rainforest! I am an avid environmentalist and naturalist. My yard, front and back, is like a jungle. The metal stair case can be noisy. I accept that and tolerate the noise guests may create. I appreciate that you were concerned and courteous Jairo! I am totally ok with the noise heels on the stairs may cause. Thank you for the feed back I will be more attentive in the future!

David was a great host. He was communicative and easy to speak with. The location is less than half a mile from mid-town/campus, so there are lots of bars and restaurants nearby. The house is old and has character, which was nice, but it might not be to everyone’s liking. The roo…

Response from David:
Thanks for the detailed description. I apologize for the dirtiness. It has been fully addressed. As far as privacy for the upstairs guest I only rent to couples or groups that all know each other. No award strangers sleeping just a few feet from each other. As far as creating a barrier between the upstairs and the down stairs for privacy and quiet that has always been a dilemma. Someday I may conquer it. And the upstairs being "old" is a bit harsh. Dated yes but old? The house was originally built in 1929. That is the charm of staying at my place. Thanks again for being a guest.

David’s home was perfect for our trip to investigate Gainesville & UF. It’s tucked away in a charming neighborhood, but close to everything and walkable to eat, drink, shop, and explore UF. The house is cool and eclectic with lots of character. The space is large and up a spir…
