The Space

My husband and I have a uniquely decorated space that reflects our love for different cultures around the world. My Italian heritage, upbringing in Ecuador, and Peace Corps volunteer experience in Mozambique all permeate the rooms of our condo. Our space is near the heart of Gainesville, but still has a removed/relaxing feeling about it that should make your stay with us very comfortable. My husband has spent a good part of his life in Gainesville and has PLENTY of recommendations as far as getting the most of the Gainesville area while you are visiting.

Guest Access

Access to private bedroom and adjoining private bathroom (with lock and key), kitchen, laundry room (washer, dryer, iron), Wi-Fi internet, printer (if you only need to print out a few sheets), bicycles, and condo's pool (when open)

Interaction with Guests

My husband and I are both grad students so we are gone for most of the day, but at home most nights. We love interacting with our guests and hearing their stories. We even have a guest book that we would love for you to sign and share about your experience while visiting us in Gainesville :-) That said, we are very none intrusive and will offer you as much privacy as you'd like!

The Neighborhood

We live in a mostly-grad-student condominium complex, tucked in a quiet nook up against a small creek, just east of the quickly revitalizing SW 13th Street. Shands hospital and UF are just across the way (~5 minutes walking). There are several well established as well as new restaurants popping up within walking distance and Gainesville's best running/biking trail starts less than 1/2 mile away (feel free to borrow our bikes).

Getting Around

We have bikes you can borrow and most places you'd want to visit (UF, downtown, midtown) are just minutes away. There are also buses that will take you from our house to downtown and from there you can get pretty much anywhere you'd like in Gainesville. UberX has arrived in Gainesville and is a reliable way to get around town during most hours of the day.

Other Things to Note

We have a well-behaved, chocolate colored Labrador Retriever who is very friendly with strangers and quiet.

House Rules

Please be kind, courteous, and respectful especially regarding late night arrivals. My husband oftentimes has to wake up before 6am for work, but he is quiet and no guests have had problems with him making too much noise on the way out. Feel free to use our kitchen storage space for your food and let us know if there are any problems - we will make it work!
