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 While the outside of the condo buildings have an outdated 70s look, the inside of my fully renovated condo is very 2013! 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.

You will be extremely satisfied with these condos

  • 5 out 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.

Very well kept apartment with convenient location to the veterinary school and Shands. Suzannah was very accommodating of our requests and very helpful with our questions. Would stay here again and would recommend to friends.

Owner's Response: It was a pleasure to have you stay at the condo and it was a pleasure to accommodate your needs and answer questions before and during your stay. I apologize that we couldn't work it out for you to stay at one of my condos for the entirety of your stay in Gainesville, but with UF graduation weekend falling during the stay (the busiest weekend of the year in Gainesville- even topping football weekends) it had been pre-booked for months. But I'm happy I was able to work it out so that you could stay in my condo for the first part of your trip. Thank you for your stay.

Great for traveling nurses

  • 5 out of 5
Very nice place to stay. Beautifully decorated. A lot of personal touches that make you feel welcome. Great location. I am a travel nurse currently working at Shands, I have moved from place to place every 13 weeks for the past 2 1/2 years so I have experienced many short term living conditions and I have to say of all my experiences I have had the best experience has been here.

Excellent!

  • 5 out of 5
We had a lovely stay in Susannah's condo. She was so very helpful when she found out we were traveling with an infant and was able to help find us some baby gear for our stay! The condo was very conveniently located just a ten minute walk to the hospital for rotation. It's clean, nicely decorated and has everything you need. My family and I are very appreciative of the extra thought that went into our stay.

Recommended for a relaxing stay or recovery from surgery

  • 5 out of 5
Thank you for a 5 star experience for our stay in Gainesville. The condo was well supplied and the location could not have been better.
We were in walking distance to both the hospital and the university and within a mile or so of eating and shopping amenities. The cleaning crew worked around our schedule and did an excellent job. From all of this my recovery progressed very well. I would highly recommend you to anyone wishing a relaxing stay or recovering from surgery. Please accept our sincerest thanks.

Great condo!

  • 5 out of 5
I stayed at Susannah's condo for a couple of weeks while doing a rotation at Shands. The condo was clean, quiet, and included everything I needed. Susannah was very responsive in answering my questions and even checked in with me after I got there to make sure everything was ok. The condo was very convenient in its location being only a few minutes walk from Shands/UF.
