About Tammy B.

Tammy Broxson has lived in Gainesville for 20+ years and owns 3 properties in the area. A residential and commercial realtor with Bosshardt Realty, Tammy is committed to quality and 100% satisfaction with all clients.

Tammy B. purchased this house in 2011

Why Tammy B. chose Gainesville

This was home to Tammy, her husband, children, cats, dogs, and other fun pets. When purchased, it was a fixer-upper without a working pool, bright blue bathtubs, and dated appliances. Today, it's a fully renovated entertaining destination with versatile furniture and numerous utilities.

What makes this house unique

This home is huge! With an open floor plan and 1,900 sq. ft, family gatherings and company parties are a breeze. The Florida room, which opens to the living room with French doors, can act as a second living room, a makeshift bedroom, or a buffet area. Outside you'll find an oversized pool, huge deck, and an entire second fenced area.

Great place

  • 5 of 5

This was a fantastic location for us as we visited with relatives in the area. Tammy and Chris were outstanding owners/hosts. Their biggest concern was that we enjoy the property and our stay there. Chris made a special trip out to the house to teach us how to use their TV and internet. Everything was super clean and neatly organized when we arrived. There were plenty of towels, supplies and extra things we needed to use the pool, etc. I would highly recommend this property. We may be back again in a few months.

Overall nice play to stay with a pool

  • 4 of 5

Family enjoyed the house for the days we stayed. Couple of downs but not huge deal is there were no extra blankets for the blowup matresses the house provided. Beds were extremely comfortable and house was very roomy for our numbers! Also, in house salt and pepper would be awesome

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for sharing your thoughts. We always strive to improve ourselves with each traveler. While there two extra blankets in the house we now understand it wasn't readily known there could be used for the blow-up air mattresses. Following your recommendation we now have a total of 4 blankets (2 of which are in the closet with the air mattress) and a salt and pepper shaker. We thank you for your stay and hope to see you again in the future. Best, Tammy and Chris

Great home and great location!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented this home for 3 months while completing a job in the Gainesville area. We found this home to be very clean when we arrived and fully equipped for our stay of 3 months. The pool is great and the fenced in yard was huge giving us a great feeling of privacy. The location was ideal and offered seclusion from the busy downtown of Gainesville, but was close enough that it was an easy, short drive wherever we wanted to go. The owner's were also great to work with and responded very quickly when we needed to contact them.

I would highly recommend this home and would definitely rent it again!

Owner's Response: We enjoyed having Nikki's family as our guest. She is a pleasure to communicate with and made our first long term stay very enjoyable. We look forward to their stay when they return to Gainesville.

Gatornationals Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Tammy and Chris,

Just wanted to reach out to say thank you for delivering on all that you promised.

You came through on a last minute request to add an extra night stay to our weekend trip. Everyone was comfortable and happy so please count us in for next year. This worked out way better for the two families staying in a hotel. Gregg

Wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful experience! I reserversed in early Nov for a Christmas stay. The owners immediately contacted me to see if we would like a Christmas tree put up or if we didn’t didn’t celebrate, something else. I opted for the tree and it was beautiful. Also there were Christmas decorations that the kids had fun putting up.

The house is laid out so nicely. Livingroom, dining and kitchen is one great room but there’s so much other room, especially the yard. Very clean, spacious house in a nice family oriented neighborhood.

Had one small issue and the owners texted me back within 60 seconds!

The dog dishes were an excellent touch.

Could not have asked for anything more

  • 5 of 5

Not only were the owners wonderful to work with, but the house met/exceeded our expectations. The home is immaculate and very comfortable - truly a home away from home. We have rented many vacation homes and typically have to remember to bring all the little things like toilet paper, paper towels, trash bags, etc. The owners of this home have made sure you really have almost everything you could need. The furniture is comfortable - something we've learned is not always the case in a vacation rental. The king size master bed is probably the most comfortable we have slept on outside our own home. The neighborhood is quiet and perfect for a nice walk or bike ride. The grocery store is less than a mile away. For us, though, the icing on the cake was how incredibly pet friendly the home really is. There is a huge, fenced in back yard with plenty of room for chasing balls. We thoroughly enjoyed our weekend stay! Thank you Tammy and Chris!

Owner's Response: We feel truly fortunate to have Andrea and David as guest. They are good communicators and great to work with. We were caught off guard by the immaculate condition they left the home in. We don't expect our guest to do the cleaning work and were completely surprised by everything they did to make the turn over as easy as possible. We would gladly have them stay anytime.
