Great stay in Micanopy!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great place to stay if you live an active lifestyle. The property is in the woods and very quiet! We loved it. If you cannot manage a narrow spiral staircase, then this property will not work for you. The full kitchen, laundry and upstairs/downstairs bathrooms and showers are very convenient. This unit is clean, roomy, quiet and comfortable. Lhiannon is a fantastic host how will make you feel at home. We will return on our next trip to Micanopy!

A nice homey stay

  • 5 of 5

My husband I stayed for a Florida football game (about 20-25 min drive) and loved the homey feel of this place. It is tucked away in the country and we felt like we really got to feel the “Florida” nature. The place is roomy with toilet/shower, full kitchen, and washer and dryer downstairs and a bedroom upstairs with tub shower and toilet. It provided us with a very comfortable stay with room to stretch and not feel cooped up like in a hotel room. Owners were very nice and communications were great.

This didn’t bother us but a couple things to note - it is a mile or two off the freeway, with some parts on dirt roads and in wooded area. We were glad we got there during the day or it would have been hard to find even with excellent directions from the owners. Also, the bedroom upstairs is on a spiral stairway, which may be a little tight for someone tall or big. My husband has bad knees but he didn’t have any problems. And finally, we met some creatures (Armadillos on the private drive, frogs, bugs, etc). We thought it was neat and part of being in the Florida nature (the place is not swampy at all) but they may get city-folks by a little surprise.

We really enjoyed our stay and hope we can come back again!

Retro, relaxing

  • 3 of 5

This is a good value for a stay over, appropriately priced for the budget or youthful traveler. The best of this property is the owner, very friendly & concerned for your stay. And the grounds - pool and horse arena are beautiful to gaze. The apartment was as shown in the photos, for us it was a throw back to our college pads of the 70's. Clean. The bedroom is not only upstairs, but the spiral staircase limited what we felt comfortable carrying up/down; so we left our luggage downstairs. The Queen size bed OK, could use a thick mattress cover. The kitchen was well stocked to make staying in very possible. We had trouble getting the TV to work, but did not ask for help as it was late at night when we returned to watch it and leaving the next day.

Great owner, good apartment and ideal base for visiting touristy places

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here, although we'd been a little worried about living so close to the owners, we needn't have worried at all, they were a delight! We felt well secluded in our comfy corner of the house, and really appreciated the help the owner gave including recommending (and printing off directions to) restaurant and places to visit, as well as the use of her laptop and printer to book-in for our flights when we left... now that's service!

The location close to the Interstate (yet way out of sight or sound of it) makes it ideal for visiting local attractions (we soon got used to the rough track to the house!!). When it came to state parks, you are spoilt for choice within a 1 hour's drive. The unusual Paynes Prairie is very close indeed, and you mustn't miss the La Chua trail entrance where (as the owner explained) you will see gators in the wild. We did the whole hot and sunny 3 miles of the trail to catch a glimpse of more water birds and the wild horses, though sadly there were no bison when we visited. However I don't recommend this trek unless you aren't phased by heat (it was late October but we are UK people and used to cooler climes). Instead just do about 1 mile round trip to not too far past the end of the boardwalk and you will see gators galore!

Around Gainesville we enjoyed the Museum of Natural History and especially its superb (best ever seen) butterfly house, as well as the Kanapaha Botanical garden. For swimming in springs we eventually decided against the fun and games at Ginnie's Springs (only 1 of us wanted to swim), and instead discovered a bit of paradise the other side of the river at Rum Island. Small, with a free car park and picnic tables, this had heavenly clear water so you easily saw fish swimming against the turquoise-tinted substrate. At busy times I understand the water is not clear because of the many visitors.

I thoroughly recommend it, and would hope to stay again if we ever visit Florida in the future. Only regret? That VBRO doesn't allow me to put photos on this review!

We were in town for 1 night visiting Davil's den. Our stay in apartment was excellent. Very clean, we had everything we needed!
