This apartment is perfect for anyone visiting relatives and friends at Shands and Campus. Or, if you're just in Gainesville to enjoy the city, this apartment works well for that as well!
Thank you and I hope you'll come for a visit.
Enjoyed my 10-day stay in Gainesville. Accommodations were very comfortable and the kitchen was well equipped. Host was very responsive to issues. Location was great. Left the car and walked to campus. Thanks!
Susannah couldn't have been more accomodating to myself and my guests. The condo had more than enough space for us, and she even equipped us with extra towels, cleaning supplies, and a nature guide for our trip. I will certainly be looking to stay here again when I return to Gainesville next year. 5 STARS!
Our host was very good about quickly responding to all of our questions, prior to our staying in her home. The house fit her description perfectly, and it was in a very nice neighborhood. We were very pleased with the accomodations
Susannah was very responsive, courteous and professional. Her apartments are modern, updated and convenient to Shands and the VA...5 min walk or less! I'd definitely recco her and these apartments to a friend!
Susannah, you were the most accommodating host i've ever encountered!
The condo was beautifully maintained, and we really appreciated having a full kitchen to use for our time there. Parking was readily available, and neighbours were all very friendly.
Thanks for a great experience, we'll definitely be back next year!
I did not meet Susannah but she was very helpful and flexible. The apartment itself was clean, very comfortable and had everything I needed. Parking was plentiful and there is a decent restaurant/bar within walking distance. I had a great stay. The only downside is that every move the upstairs neighbor makes, you will hear. I didn't bother my sleeping or anything, and I was gone most of the day and went out to dinner every night, but you will hear it. Not a fault on the host or the place, just an FYI. I would still highly recommend it and would stay again.
Gibbs, thank you so much for your stay and I'm so glad you had a wonderful experience- that is always my goal for each person who stays in one of my condos. I am so sorry to hear about the upstairs neighbor- I have never had anyone comment about that before and that's very good to know. The good news is that I happen to own the condo upstairs and it is currently rented out to a graduate medical student (whom in the past has been very quiet) and my plan is to convert it to a short-term fully furnished rental ASAP. This should not be a problem in the future. The other good news is that I have 5 other top floor condos listed on AirBNB, so that would not be a problem at all. I have 3 bottom floor condos because many of my guests are hospital patients, elderly couples, and avid bike riders who do not want to carry their bikes up stairs, so I have made sure to have bottom floor accommodations for those needs. Many thanks and I am so glad that you had a great visit to Gainesville-- have a wonderful journey!

About the Host, Susannah
I am a nature photographer, super happy hostess to out-of-town guests, dress designer (Strawberry Blonde Clothing) mother, etc... and I love to help people get to know Gainesville and all it has to offer. I regularly write photo articles for HOME Magazine (in which you can find great things to do in Gainesville). I take very good care of my guests by making recommendations for restaurants, things to do, etc... I have been a landlord for quite a few years, and have many repeat customers and referrals. My photography company is called SP Fine Prints, which you can find if you use a search engine. I look forward to hearing from you.
