  • This was the perfect place for my stay!! I was able to walk to campus and to a full size grocery store for food supplies. The condo was extremely quiet, spacious and comfortable. And Susannah is a wonderful host - she contacted me upon arrival to make sure everything was in order and she has all the details worked out to be sure your stay runs smoothly! I will definitely stay here the next time I am in town.

  • Apartment with a good price/quality ratio. If you are undecided in your choice you can rest assured, Susannah and her apartments are the best in Gainesville.

    Response from Susannah:

    Thanks so much, Marco! It was a pleasure to host you and hopefully you'll come back to Gainesville in the future and stay in one of my condos again- have a safe and pleasant journey home!

  • Enjoyed my stay in Gainesville. Clean and safe accomodations for a single female. Susannah was very helpful and checked in several times to check how my stay was.

    Response from Susannah:

    It was a pleasure to host you, Bonnie- I hope you'll come back to Gainesville and stay in my condo again on your next visit. Thanks!

  • We had a great stay at Susannah's condo and can just highly recommend this host. We are a couple with a six-year old daughter and it was really spacy for our stay for four weeks. Kitchen is equipped with all the stuff you need (except a dish-washer :). It is very clean and if you need anything Susannah as well as the house-keepers are absolutely helpful. If ever back at Gainesville (worked at Shands) this would be my first choice to go.

    Response from Susannah:

    It was such a pleasure to have you, Kirsten, and thank you so much for being my guest! I'm so glad that the housekeepers could help you out whenever you needed help- they are wonderful (and they live on the property so they are easy to get in touch with). Thank you for mentioning the spaciousness of the condo you rented- I have 4 condos that are larger than the others at no extra charge, so if people need extra space for bringing a family, I can try to put people in the larger ones. Thank you!

  • 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!

  • We wanted a nice quiet condo close to the hospital (on the ground floor, if possible), for relatives who were going to undergo surgery to stay in whilst they recovered. This place fit the bill wonderfully, and Susannah and her team manage the place beautifully! There were a few (very) minor issues, but were addressed as soon as they were brought up. The condo itself has been updated very nicely, and is a cute place to rent! The location can't be beat, as it really is within walking distance to the hospital (~2 blocks away), and so we could all visit the hospital often and easily. All in all, a fantastic place, lovely people, and good value for money! :-)

  • 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!

  • My first renting with AIRBNB was fantastic. The apartment was beautiful and clean. The owner kept in touch during my stay too make sure everything was perfect.

    November 2013
    Response from Susannah:

    Thank you so much for renting my condo, Deana- it was truly a pleasure to host you! Please come back again and I'd love to host you again:-)
    All the best,

  • 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!

    November 2013
    Response from Susannah:

    Natasha- it was such a pleasure hosting you! Please come back again next year:-)

  • The condo was a perfect place to stay for a football weekend in Gainesville. Susannah was a pleasure to work with on renting the condo. I would definitely recommend staying in any of Susannah's rentals!

    Thank you, Theresa! It was a pleasure to work with you, too! Thanks for being a great guest:-)!

I am a nature photographer, super happy hostess to out-of-town guests, 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.
