Great host, super caring, was quick to respond to any issues. Listing was as advertised in a great neighborhood next to Shands/vet school. Very clean, well decorated condo. Susannah even sent over quickly an extra set of sheets/pillows for us to use when we asked. Thanks so much Susannah! One thing to note -- as everywhere in Gainesville, the roam towers are AGGRESSIVE. We used the parking passes provided, and STILL got towed because it was "too close to the SunPass and the tow truck driver didn't see it". If you get towed, be aggressive with them back -- you can threaten to call GPD on them if necessary and file a formal complaint :-P

Response from Susannah:
Hi Zach- so glad you enjoyed the stay and had a great experience. I'm so sorry about the roam towing experience- if it happens to anyone in the future, please call me and I will have them tow it back to the condo at my own expense. I'm so sorry I didn't know about it. Thanks so much, and let me know when you come back into town in the future:-) Thanks!

Susannah was incredibly responsive and helpful, especially when my car was towed after forgetting to put the parking pass on the dash.

Susannah was a lovely hostess for the condos that we rented from her. We were staying in Gainesville to be close to the hospital as a close relative was having surgery at Shands, and the condos were within walking distance so to not have to try to park at the hospital, and to be able to stop by whenever we wanted to was great! The condos themselves were nice, had just about everything we could think of, and the area was nice and quiet. Susannah and her team were excellent, responsive and efficient to the (minor) issues that we had, resolving matters in minutes! All in all, we would rent from Susannah again in a heartbeat!

If there had been more stars to color in, I would color in all of them. I had the delight of being in one of Susannah's condos this last week. My connection with Susannah pre-stay, during the stay, and post-stay had me feeling most welcome and learning what was available that could enhance my stay both in the condo and in the community. Susannah is the full host, spunky, fun, upbeat and responsive. She helped me trouble shoot and resolve issues that came up for me in travel and my stay. I felt like she created the "pillow" of an experience and I could rest head, heart and soul in this sweet condo with her colorful photography, furnishings and self. I did cook in the condo throughout the week. What a delight to have a full kitchen in working order. I traveled for health reasons and this condo nurtured myself and another fellow healer whom I met during the week and invited to stay with me. Thank you, Susannah. You'll be singing praises of "Oh, Susannah"...thankful for the base from which you have your own fine experience in Gainesville. We did get to take in the (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN)ts coming out at twilight from the bat houses on the Univ. of Florida campus AND see our first alligator, along with turtles and herons after leaving Susannah's apartment and taking flight ourselves to our west coast abodes. Thank you, Susannah. To all of you, enjoy your experience here with a great host and a fun landing pad of a condo to come home to. Susannah made my experience here so much fun. It was my first airbnb experience...and if it should be anything like this again...I can say, for me, that it far outdoes being in a hotel, so much more personal, as personal and as private as I could want it to be all at the same time.

Kirsten, first of all (but certainly not the most important of all, but from my artistic and love of nature perspective, just have to respond to this part first... :-)...), I am s(PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN) happy that you got to see the (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN)ts!!! I took my little Phillip a few times last year and it was such a phenomenal experience!! Secondly, and most importantly, I LOVED getting to know you- you have the most wonderful personality, energy, and spirit. I am a better person for having gotten to know you! Thanks so much for staying at one of my condos- it was such a pleasure to host you!

We had a very nice stay in Gainesville and Susannah was a very good host. We didn't stay in the apartment we booked though. Susannah had some guests that wanted to live close to the med school, so she offered us a free upgrade to a house which we happily took. The house was very nice: clean, comfortable, nicely decorated, beautiful garden, and with a good location close to downtown. We stayed there for a week and had a great time.

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!
