Thank you for looking at our vacation home!! Although we use the 'Book It Now' and the 'Quote' feature, we do advise that you also email us when inquiring and make sure you look at the rental agreement before finalizing payment. Sometimes the quotes can be inaccurate or we can have various promotions depending on your dates! We want to give you the correct and BEST rate! Please also note there is a credit card payment fee with 'Book it now'. We are more than happy to hold your dates and have you submit a check/money order to avoid that fee. Just email the owner :)
During football/graduation season, sometimes the quotes can be crazy! That is not our goal! We will work with you on price if you are looking for a longer stay during our football/graduation season! There are no cleaning fees with this unit :)

Please note: that both bedrooms & showers are upstairs, while the sleeper sofa is downstairs. Sleeper sofa now has a 3 inch mattress top pad that provides extra comfort!! There is also NO land-line telephone in the unit. All phone calls must be made from renter's personal cellular device.

The Condo sleeps 6 comfortably however we will accommodate up to 9...( has 1 queen, 1 double, and one pull out queen sized sleeper sofa with a newly added great mattress topper pad that's three inches thick). Plenty of room for an additional queen and twin air mattress (not provided). So, technically could sleep 9 people, just remember not to all try to shower at once or close together. There is only a 40 gallon water heater, and you will not have enough hot water! :) Both bedrooms are upstairs. Please email with any questions. We hope you will love our home as much as we have the past 10 years! We live close to the condo so if you have any questions or concerns or would like a tour before renting, please don’t hesitate to email us! We’d be happy to help you in any way!! We want your business, and therefore there are no cleaning fees!!
We also can coordinate the following services: massages, daycare, baby/child accessories, dinner reservations, bike rentals, manatee snorkeling reservations at Crystal River, and cleaning services for long term renters.
Please note there is an increased nightly rate for gator game weekends. $750 for entire weekend.. (rate for up to 6 people... each additional person $25 per night) We also back up to UF property, and there is a bus that will take you to the game for $10/roundtrip. Many of our renters love this option so you do not have to worry about traffic/parking/drinking & driving/etc. :)Great bonus!!
We book early for gator game weekends, so plan far ahead!!
There is also an increased rate for the Gator Nationals 4 day event each year, and graduations!
Please consider renting from us... We do NOT charge a cleaning fee, so it saves you money!!!!

Stephanie purchased this condo in 2003
Why Stephanie chose Gainesville
Recently married and had to find something to do with my former home!
What makes this condo unique
Peaceful, quiet, professional neighborhood. Smaller neighborhood with very few units make it the perfect 'kept secret' neighborhood of Gainesville! Love the fact of walking to the grocery store, bank, Two Bits bar in the UF Hilton, the museum, butterfly exhibit, Harn Museum, center of performing arts, or just Gumbie's Pizza or Wok N Roll Chinese! Hop on a bus easily to get to UF!!!
Guestbook comments from the owner
Just wanted to let you guys looking for a place to stay in Gainesville to stop looking- you've found it. Stephanie, the owner, went out of her way to accommodate my family and had oodles of recommendations on parking, food, traveling routes, etc., for the football game. She never seemed to tire of my questions and usually responded to me within the same day. The condo was clean and fresh smelling when we opened the door. The work they have completed with remodeling the bathrooms, updating the kitchen appliances, etc., is really tastefully done. The cleanliness was of utmost importance to me as we had 2 small children with us and I was very pleased. If I return to the area, would definitely rent again! Very highly recommend.
