Our favorite house in Gainesville

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at this house several times now and absolutely love it. It is always clean and very convenient to the many places we visit while in Gainesville. Janis is wonderful to work with and we feel we have developed a friendship over the course of time we have been renting.

Good times in gainesville

  • 5 of 5

This was great for our needs. We came down for gator nationals. The 15-20min drive to track was very convenient. The house was clean, the bathrooms were clean. The barbecue was nice to have/use. The grocery store around corner was real handy. I would def recommend this property rental. We are looking forward to making this trip again next year. Being able to spend time with friends not cramped in hotels rooms really made trip enjoyable. Working with Janis on rental agreement/payment couldn't have been smoother! 👍

Sweet house near campus!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a few weeks last month and absolutely loved this house. Janis was a great host who was always available to answer our questions and keeps an immaculate home. Best part was how close we were to campus, really quick bike ride and we were at the stadium! 5 Stars!

Working Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here three months. A great writing retreat with easy access to colleagues at the U of Florida. The large fenced backyard with spreading live oaks was relaxing and safe for little kid visits. The house was spacious and very comfortable. The neighborhood is lovely -- perfect for daily walks and bike rides. Friendly, helpful neighbors made us feel at home. A short walk or 5 minute drive will get you to the wonderful Fresh Market with its ever-changing array of desserts and fresh sushi, an authentic French bakery, the all-purpose Publix grocery, and an intriguing used book store. We took side trips to the Gulf (Cedar Key), St. Augustine, Manatee Springs, and a variety of state parts where we encountered eagles, wild horses and baby alligators. Disneyworld is a day-trip away. Gainesville weather in January and February can be surprisingly cool, even cold, but the house was well heated and always comfortable.

Great place for a Gator weekend!

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect place for our Gator weekend! Janis was very responsive throughout the process, and even provided valuable info for surrounding area (Flying Biscuit was a great breakfast spot). House was comfortable and clean, and I would definitely stay here again.
