About this listing
Beautifully renovated 1930's cottage is only a 10 minute walk from the University of Florida. This gorgeous 1 bedroom cottage has it all: cathedral ceilings, large flatscreen HDTVs, WiFi, new appliances and furnishings, & a full size washer & dryer.
The cottage is a perfect combination of a vintage brick building with all the modern amenities and conveniences. It is conveniently located, and it is an easy walk to the University of Florida, Ben Hill Griffin Stadium, the O'Connell Center, Shands, or the VA Hospital. Because we are next door, we can help you with directions, restaurant recommendations (if you choose not to cook in your beautiful kitchen!), sightseeing options, etc.
Guests will have free parking in the area inside the gate right in front of the cottage.
Interaction with Guests
We live in the house nearest the cottage, and we share the parking area. We meet our guests personally, and we make sure you have everything you need for a comfortable stay. We respect your privacy, but we are friendly and here to help when needed.
The cottage is in a quiet, safe residential neighborhood 5 blocks north of the University of Florida and its sports venues, including the football stadium ("The Swamp") and the basketball arena (The O'Connell Center).
The cottage is a 10 minute walk to the University of Florida and to a bus stop on University Avenue.

About the Host, Rich
I live in a house on the same property with my wife and two sons. Our beautifully renovated cottage is partly a result of my wife's love of HGTV! We leased it long-term for several years to an employee of nearby Shands Hospital, and we now have furnished and equipped it as a short term rental. In addition to AirBnB, we lease it to visitors to the University of Florida Physics Department and friends who come in for Gator sporting events.
We're laid back, friendly folks who like to meet new people. You may see us coming or going, or walking our golden doodle "Buddy". My wife and I met in graduate school at UF, and we love the Florida Gators!
