Overview

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday apartment in Gainesville

Comfortable, Affordable, and Convenient

Need a place to stay during a graduation or a football weekend? Wintering in Florida and want a convenient and comfortable place to stay? 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.

This apartment is on the second 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 While the outside of the condo buildings have an outdated 70s look, the inside of my fully renovated condo is very 2015! 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.

Excellent Corporate Condo in Gainesville

  • 5 of 5

I found this condo to have everything I needed for my business stay. I was able to bring my wife with me, so by having a living area, dining area, and fully kitchen in addition to the bedroom, our stay was very nice as we could spread out (i.e. one could sleep in the bedroom while the other watched TV in the living room and she was able to cook our meals while I was consulting at UF Health). I was extremely satisfied and found the condo a better value, more spacious, and more convenient than a hotel. I hope to stay at this condo during my next visit.

Convenient!

  • 5 of 5

I am a traveling medical care provider and I have never had such an accommodating landlord. Not only was the apartment walking distance to my place of work, but the place had everything I needed. The owner was extremely easy to contact and really cared about making my experience a good one (I am frequent user of corporate apartments and this was one of my best experiences). I would highly recommend this apartment to all traveling nurses, traveling medical worker, and hospital patients.

Owner's Response: It is always a pleasure to help traveling nurses, visiting professors and any other guest who needs a home away from home that also happens to be walking distance from their place of work in Gainesville. It's normally quicker to walk to Shands than to drive from the condo, park in the parking garage, and then walk from the parking lot. I'm always happy when great guests have great experiences at my condos!

Consistent, Excellent Experiences

  • 5 of 5

I have stay in Susannah's properties for many years and I have been consistently impressed with her customer service, amenities, and responsiveness. This is a turn-key operation-- you just show up with food and clothing and you are all set.

Owner's Response: It has always been a pleasure working with repeat guests. I often get guests who call me as soon as they realize they need to come to Gainesville again- some of my guests have booked with me 15+ times when they come into town for business. It's always a pleasure to know that I have earned continued business from the same guests.

graduation weekend

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your stay! I will definitely alert the association about the sign as it is normally very bright so thank you for bringing it to my attention. I ask and encourage all guests to please alert me if anything needs to be fixed during their stay as I employ a full-time crew to help me with situations just like this- they are always ready to change a lightbulb, unclog a sink, whatever is needed for guests to have the best stay possible. For graduation weekend stays, I am very happy to rent my condos during graduation weekend, which is the busiest weekend of the year in Gainesville (even busier than football weekends) and I offer great value and flexibility. I offer my condos at less than a quarter of the price of a hotel for graduation weekend while offering a kitchen, living area and dining area. I was also able to change these reservation dates without an extra charge when they realized that they got the graduation date incorrect, and it was my pleasure to do so. I do try to make guests fully aware of the outdated architecture of the outside of the buildings by having pictures of the architecture in all of my ads as well as a description of the 70's architecture in the description section- but on the inside, all of my condos are fully renovated and have new furniture and appliances. Thank you and looking forward to hosting all future guests!

Great properties, great owner

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have been staying with Susannah for three years when we visited our daughter at UF. We've stayed in three different properties and have never been disappointed. All have been in excellent condition and are beautifully decorated.

The location is great, especially for events on campus. Easy to access downtown or the strip on Archer. Rental rates are very reasonable. Susannah is great to work with, very accommodating and has great suggestions for restaurants, entertainment, etc.

We are in the midst of our last stay as our daughter is graduating. We will miss staying with Susannah, but hope others will.

You will be extremely satisfied with these condos

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent a week in Gainesville and wanted to avoid the hotel scene where you never feel at home.

We found the Summit House condos on line and decided to give it a try. The price for a week was much cheaper than a hotel and the experience was delightful. Immediately after arrival the owner called us to make sure we arrived safely and to ask if we needed anything.

The condos are spacious, extremely clean and have everything you could ever need in terms of dishes, silverware, cleaning supplies, large screen tv and very comfortable furniture. There are two swimming pools on the property for swimming and sun bathing. The condos are very close to the University of Florida campus so you can walk anywhere and avoid the hassle of trying to find a parking spot. They are also very close to the hospitals, numerous restaurants, taverns and shopping areas. The location is just ideal for almost anything you could want to do around Gainesville.

If you need a safe, quiet, comfortable, spacious condo for a weekend, week or month, you will be very satisfied with the Summit House condos.

Owner's Response: I'm so pleased that you took full advantage of the condo and its location- it really is perfect for anyone visiting the University- with 2 free parking spots and being walking distance from so many things, it truly is a great place! Thanks so much for being a guest!

Location

This property is located within walking distance of Shands Hospital, the Veterinary School, and the Veterans Hospital. This is the closest condo available for ultra convenience.
