This is the guest bedroom in my clean 2BR/1BA apartment just off the west edge of campus. It's in a quiet, safe complex within walking distance of the museums and with easy bus access to campus. Nothing fancy, just clean, quiet, and comfortable.
This is the spare bedroom in my clean 2BR/1BA apartment just off the west edge of campus. Full-sized bed, high-quality mattress and linens. Well-built apartment, good sound insulation (you won't hear my neighbors!) It's in a quiet, safe complex with a nice wooded courtyard and pool.
You're free to make use of the kitchen and living room (and the bathroom, of course) all you like. There's also a small patio with access to a nice planted courtyard and swimming pool area.
Interaction with Guests
I'll leave you alone to do your thing but I'm happy to conversate. Just make yourself at home and pretend I'm your roommate. When I'm at home I'm usually just studying in the living room; you can feel free to join me in that space and do whatever you want (read, chat, watch TV, play the piano?).
I'm less than a half mile -- a very easy walk --from the Natural History museum and the art museum. The butterfly rainforest exhibit there is a must see! The apartment is also only a 5-10 minute walk from the Hilton convention center. There is a large shopping plaza next door with tons of food and shopping options.
There is plenty of free parking at the complex and good bus service to the university. It's a five minute walk to the bus stop and the 20 and 21 run to campus every 10-15 minutes. The 34 drops off right in front of the complex and runs every half hour. If you are coming in by plane you will most likely want to take a cab from the airport or rent a car; bus transit to the airport would be possible with transfers but would not be convenient.
Other Things to Note
I don't have a washer and dryer in the unit but there is a laundry center (coin-operated) conveniently located in the adjacent building.
No smoking or pets please.
Quiet after 11 or so on school nights.
The accomodation was clean and comfortable. It's also conveniently located in an area where you can find restaurants and a grocery store in a walking distance. Will was very hospitable and helpful with all the questions we had about the local area. We would definately stay here again.
Was very communicative and helpful. Great location right next to campus, easy to get to. Quiet area and comfortable room! Will was friendly and accommodating. Would stay here again for sure!
We enjoyed our stay at Will's house. He was very friendly and what I really liked was the vases with flowers in the house including in our our room's vase. It was a nice surprise to see new flowers in our room after two days of our stay. He was also very generous, as refunded us for the last night we did not stay at his place.
I would definitively contact him again in further visits to Gainesville.
I really enjoyed staying at Will's place. It is very cozy and I felt very welcome there. There's a grocery store near by and also bus stopps to go to campus or to the town. Will is e very friendly, calm and intelligent person who's happy to answer all of your questions. I highly recommend this place!

Will was very welcoming and great host. Very easy instruction to find his place. The room was clean and ready for me to use when I get there. The bed is very comfortable as he stated.
