Overview

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)

Thank you for everyone that has supported us over the past few years! We are proud to announce we were awarded the: 2015 Best of Gainesville Award for Vacation Rental Agency!! We could have never done it without each and every one of you. From the bottom of our hearts, THANK YOU!!

Now offering 10% all May stays of three nights or more!!

NEW KITCHEN IS HERE!!!

Stainless steel kitchen with granite countertops and cherry java cabinets!!

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 'send us an inquiry' prior to using 'book it now', to make sure everything is correct. 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'. There is a 3% charge for USA credit card bookings and 4.5% for international credit card bookings, that may not be reflected in the quote. 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!

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 kithcen, 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 will do whatever we can to make that happen!

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 5 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 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!!

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.

Loved the Location

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have been happier with the location - 5 minutes to the campus and so much to see and do there. Every appliance ever invented is stored somewhere in the apartment and when we had a problem with the disposall, Stephanie had a plumber there in an hour. This was our first visit to Gainesville and thanks to this sweet little place, we'll be coming back.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the kind words! It means so very much. Once again, I'm sorry the garbage disposal went crazy on you, but glad it was a super easy fix! Thank you again for your business and hope to see you again in the future! Sincerely, Stephanie Wixo 352-214-1495

Awesome!!

The town house was very clean with everything we needed. It was very close to everything you need from a grocery story to any kind of restaurant you could want. Stephanie was awesome in making sure that we had everything we needed. We will definitely be staying there again when we are in the area.

Great home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this condo! The owner answered any question we had and even recommended a wonderful place to eat! Thank you! The food was fabulous! We came down looking at neighborhoods and houses since we are planning to move to Gainesville as soon as our house sells here. I know as it gets closer we will be back down and I hope maybe we can stay here again! It's convenient to lots of shopping/dining! I highly recommend this condo and the owner was great!! Thanks for making our stay there so enjoyable and comfortable!

Excellent choice

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is very clean, friendly, well located and has everything you need to live comfortably.

Has supermarkets and shopping centers a few blocks.

Yet the difference is in the warm attention of Stephanie, their efficiency in solving any problem and their willingness to make the occupants are as at home.

No doubt when we return to Gainesville we will stay here.

Wonderful Stay in Gainesville Condo!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in this condo while in Gainesville. It had everything we needed to cook and relax. I would highly recommend for visitors and alumni. Very close to the south west side of campus and a couple of minutes from everything on Archer Road. I would definitely stay here again next time I'm in town.
