Great for families and friends traveling together.
This newly restored historic home in the Duckpond area of downtown Gainesville is within walking distance of many bars and restaurants. It is also just minutes away from UF campus.
Great for families and very peaceful surroundings.
Visiting Gainesville for UF sports, graduation, Shands, or sightseeing? We have the perfect place for you. Come back and relax after your event- or watch your event from the flat-screen TVs in the living room and bedroom. The house is newly renovated as of the summer of 2012 (it's 1250 SF heated/ cooled).
You can walk to downtown bars and restaurants. The historic Thomas Center is just 3 short blocks away. We are also just a 10 minutes drive from La Chua Trail (a Florida State Park) where you are guaranteed to see 1 to 100 alligators.
We are also just 2 miles from UF campus, the Swamp, and the O'Connell Center.
The owners live next door to the house, and can be easily reached via phone and e-mail.
One bedroom has a king bed and the other bedroom has a queen bed- perfect for families or for friends sharing a home.
The backyard is fenced in and maintained by the owners, and connects to the backyard of the owners (the backyard is meticulously maintained with beautiful seasonal flowers and greenery).
Interaction with guests

What is my full-time job? Hosting! I have 35+ short-term rental properties in Gainesville, and hosting is what I do 24/7, so you will be in excellent hands.
Why choose me as your host? I have a full-time professional team with my Southern Comfort Properties company, and we strive to make every guests' stay great. Because I have an entire team to help me, you might hear from one of my teammates as well, so if you hear from Blaine or Hannah, they are helping me out to make sure you get the quickest reply and best service possible. My maintenance team is also available 24/7 for quick responses during your stay.
I have a huge variety of options, so please feel free to ask me for a recommendation (I have top floors/ bottom floors, shady/ sunny, 1/2/3/5 bedroom options, houses/ condos, luxurious/ economy-- something for everyone). If the option about which you inquire is not available, I can suggest an alternative for you.
I am also a nature photographer and dress designer, wife, mother, etc... and I love to help people get to know Gainesville and all it has to offer. My photography company is called SP Fine Prints, which you can find if you use a search engine.
I have been a landlord for 10+ years, and have many repeat customers and referrals. I strive to earn a 5-star review from all guests, and have consistently earned Superhost Status from AirBNB- I take great pride in my business.
I'm looking forward to hosting you!
