Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday condo in Gainesville - Albert's Abode

Condo/townhouse, 2 Bedrooms, 2.5 BATHS, plus sleeper sofa (Sleeps 1-9)

LAST MINUTE OCTOBER DISCOUNT WITH 3+ NIGHTS STAY!! 10% OFF!

Now offering a personal grocery shopper, so that your groceries are in the house when you arrive!

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 :)

NO CLEANING FEES!!! Two bedroom 2.5 bath condo located in the heart of Gainesville!! Less than two miles to UF, BEN HILL GRIFFIN STADIUM (AKA THE SWAMP!!), Shands, Malcolm Randall VA Medical Center, North Florida Regional Medical Center, the veterinary school, and all on convenient bus routes! Less than 5 minute walk to any bus stop and the grocery store! No car needed. This condo is in a quiet professional neighborhood. Walk out your own private fenced in back porch and you are at the nice refreshing pool! This is an excellent vacation home or just for a visit for those amazing gator games, gator nationals, girls weekend, gatorback, thanksgiving, Christmas, Easter, a weekend wedding or graduation!!

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.

We are BABY friendly!! We have baby gates, high chairs, pack n plays, and outlet plugs! Just request!!

Newly Remodeled!

Many newer upgrades include new carpet, tile, stainless steel refrigerator, flat top stove, over the range microwave, dishwasher, newer tubs/showers, glass shower doors, newer patio furniture!! This place is furnished to the max including all dishes, pots, pans, glasses, Tupperware, blender, iron, ironing board, washer, dryer, crock pot, and much more! Two huge closets and dressers in each bedroom!! This is an excellent vacation home for those getting away from colder weather!

Capacity

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!!!!

Please read before inquiring

Responsible renters over the age of 25 only. Copy of Drivers license required. No kegs, loud parties, or pets allowed on premise. Maximum amount of people spending the night is 9. Violation of these will result in renters being removed and neither deposit or rental payment will be returned. We are close friends with the neighbors and ask that you please respect this. Please don’t put us in the position to have to remove you from the premises. No smoking inside premises! The condo association now charges $25 for any trash left outside the front door of the unit. If trash is left outside, the fee(s) unfortunately have to be taken out of your security deposit :( So please be careful with that.

Check-in times may vary based if someone else is checking out the day you check in, to allow for cleaning. Check out time is eleven. We can sometimes accommodate early check ins and late check outs if not one is renting before/after you. We really will not know this until about 2 days before your stay, however.

Hope you will choose us as your vacation rental getaway!!

And remember... we don't charge cleaning fees!!

New to unit!! Main living room area dual ipod and iphone docking station/player

About Stephanie

Love this condo and UF!! Go gators!!!

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.

Exactly as the ad says

  • 5 out of 5
This place is exactly as it claims to be.. a quiet and safe location in Gainesville with everything you need to spend some days in town. The house has all you would have at home related to furniture, small appliances, utensils. I will always check on the availability for this home when I need to stay longer in Gainesville. better than a hotel..

Great Place to Stay

  • 5 out of 5
I just want to say I thoroughly enjoy my stay at this location. My family and I were attending my niece's wedding and staying at this location was perfect for us as it was less than four miles away from where the wedding took place. Aside from this, the condo is in a quiet area. It is also near grocery and pharmacy stores which makes it even more convenient. Special thanks go to Stephanie, the owner, who was very attentive and accomodating to our needs. Definitely will stay again.

Wedding Weekend

  • 5 out of 5
We were in town for our son's wedding and did not want to stay in a hotel for 4 days - we found this condo and it was perfect for our needs. Very clean, great location and great communication from the owner throughout the process. Would definitely stay again if we are ever up in the Gainesville area.

Better Than Advertised!

  • 5 out of 5
I will never rent a hotel room again as long as this condo is available. It is right across the street from the west side of the University and right near shopping, dining and grocery stores. The condo is better priced than hotels and much cleaner and more convenient. The place was fully stocked with towels, linens, utensils and all amenities. It is a stone's throw from the pool and the owner was available by phone and email to immediately answer any and all questions. I highly recommend this place!
