WALK TO SHANDS / UF HEALTH, V.A. AND U.F. CAMPUS! LONGER STAY = LOWER PRICE/ NT

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday apartment in Gainesville

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Other (See Description), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Need a place to stay during a graduation or a football weekend? Visiting a patient at Shands Hospital? Need a corporate apartment? Look no further than this comfortable apartment.

If you want to stay within walking distance of Shands Hospital, the VA Hospital, the Veterinarian School, and University of Florida campus, this is the place for you. No hassle, no parking headaches, and all the amenities you need for a short or long stay in Gainesville.

The longer your stay, the lower your daily rate (the nightly rate is $125/ night, but the weekly rate is $72/ night + taxes and the monthly rate is $50/ night + taxes). Football weekends, graduation weekends and other special event weekends are $250/ night + taxes.

We are also always happy to give suggestions for favorite restaurants, Gainesville activities, day-trips, etc... we strive to make sure that all of our guests have a 5-star experience. The owners are very involved in the community, so they keep up to date on Gainesville activities and happenings and pass along suggestions to their guests.

You have two fantastic restaurant areas just 5 minutes away. Downtown Gainesville is just a 5 minute drive away, and the Archer Road restaurants are just 5 minutes away as well. If you prefer to travel by bus, there is a bus stop just steps away from the apartment.

The apartment is on the 1st floor and is newly remodeled with all new furniture and electronics. You will be extremely comfortable. While the outside of the condo buildings have an outdated 70s look, the insides are newly renovated! And the location couldn't be better.

The apartment is fully furnished to accommodate 4 people. The bedroom has a queen bed with a very comfortable mattress. We have a blow-up mattress for additional guests.

On-site amenities include 2 pools and 2 laundry facilities. The apartment is 575 SF. We are also always available if you need suggestions for outings, restaurants, etc...

The owner is an avid nature photographer, so is very familiar with all of the great spots to see alligators, bison, horses, birds, flowers, beautiful Oak Hammocks... you name it! You can check the local HOME Magazine: Living in the Heart of Florida (their magazine can be read from the website) to see her write-ups on local nature spots .

Susannah and Brian are both Florida natives (Brian is from Gainesville and Susannah is orginally from Lake Wales). Susannah is a mom and an avid nature photographer and loves to visit all of the beautiful parks and gardens in Gainesville (Paynes Prairie, Kanapaha Gardens, city parks, etc...). She also writes and furnishes pictures for a local nature column in each issue of HOME Magazine, a wonderful local Gainesville magazine. She loves to take nature walks. She also volunteers a lot for the community and serves on the boards of the University of Florida Performing Arts, Junior League of Gainesville, Cade Museum for Creativity and Invention, and the Gainesville Community Foundation.

Brian is in medical supply sales. He loves to fish, sail, and pretty much do anything water-related.

They both love Gainesville very much.

Susannah Peddie purchased this apartment in 2006

We chose to buy in this particular location due to its convenience to Shands Hospital and downtown Gainesville.

We have great personal connections with many local restaurants, the performing arts center, and the museums. Please let us know if you need recommendations for places to eat and things to do.

WONDERFUL STAY!!

  • 5 out of 5
My son and I stayed in the beautifully decorated and conveniently located condo in Gainesville for 3 weeks. We were steps from Shands Hospital and a short drive to everything local. We enjoyed such things as watching the Bats come out in the evening near Lake Alice, bike ride at Haile Plantation & dining at a great bistro. We caught a Gator baseball game, walking in historic Micanopy. I would highly recommend staying at Summit House condo, you will truly enjoy!!

GAINESVILLE GET AWAY

This is the second time my wife and I have stayed at one of Susannah's properties and we are happy again! Description is very accurate and accommodations quite comfortable. Many choices for restaurants and activities nearby. Great for walking around the UF campus too!

ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL STAY AT THIS CONDO!

  • 5 out of 5
My wife and I came to Florida for the first time this year and spent a month in this condo travelling out from Gainesville to explore the history here. This was definitely our "home" away from home and we loved coming back to it in the evenings! Everything is convenient from the laundry, to groceries, to the pool and sun deck. Thanks Susannah for a great place from which to enjoy Florida. Was so nice to meet you and your son as well! Love your art and photography! Oh, and by the way, that Danny and Abbi team you have are definitely "keepers"! Our thanks to them as well!

GREAT LOCATION, QUITE COMFORTABLE ACCOMODATIONS, PLEASANT OVERALL EXPERIENCE

  • 5 out of 5
I rented one of Susannah's units for 2 nights during the UF/FSU weekend. Susannah made the reservation process as easy as I've ever experienced with a VRBO rental. The locations is terrific - very close to the UF medical facilities, and only about a 10 minute walk to a Later Gator bus stop if you are interested in downtown/midtown nightlife (which we were, and given the busy weekend due to the game, booking a taxi would have been impractical, so having Later Gator nearby was very helpful!). The apartments are pleasantly furnished, and the location is very quiet since I think mostly med school students and faculty/staff live there, so no rowdy college kids in the late night hours. Overall, it was a wonderful experience, and I plan to contact Susannah for accomodations the next time I am in Gainesville.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for booking the condo- please do contact me again the next time you are in town- would love to host you again! Also, thanks so much for letting me know about the Later Gator stop because I honestly did not even know about it:-) I will have to look that up so I can let others know about it for game weekends. I'm so glad that you enjoyed the location, the decor, and the other amenities of the condo- that's always my goal, so thank you for letting me know that it was a successful visit!

PERFECT FOR VISITING PROFESSORS AT VET SCHOOL

  • 5 out of 5
I recently visited Gainesville as a visiting professor and found this condo, which is just down the street from UF Vet School. I stayed for a week and couldn't have been happier with the location, the amenities, and, most importantly, not having to stay in a hotel and eat out for every meal.
As people have commented before, don't be fooled by the 60's style exterior- the condos are completely renovated and up-to-date. The owner is extremely responsive and has a handyman living in one of her condos onsite if you need anything.

HOME AWAY FROM HOME IN GAINESVILLE

  • 5 out of 5
Susannah is an exceptional host and her condo was exactly as it looks in the photos. I was amazed by her attention to detail and her concern for my comfort while visiting Gainesville. The condo is very clean, beautifully decorated, and has everything one would need. Perfect location to the University of Florida, UF/Shands hospital, and the Veterinary College.
Susannah takes great care to insure your stay is welcoming and wonderful. She has tips for everything from great local restaurants to parks and outdoor activities. She is easy to contact and very attentive to her guests, very fast replies. The on-site laundry and pools make for a relaxing environment. It was truly a home away from home for me, as I was there about a month. I was studying at a UF summer program, and the condo was truly an oasis at the end of the day. And Susannah's art work makes a lovely personal touch! Thank you, Susannah!
