About the Host, Susannah
I am a nature photographer, super happy hostess to out-of-town guests, dress designer (Strawberry Blonde Clothing), wife, mother, etc... and I love to help people get to know Gainesville and all it has to offer. I strive to earn a 5-star review from all guests, and have recently earned Superhost Status from AirBNB, so you will be in good hands.
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.
