Need a place to stay during a graduation or a football weekend? Wintering in Florida and want a convenient and comfortable place to stay? Visiting a patient at Shands Hospital? Need a corporate apartment? Look no further than these comfortable apartments. We have 14 1/1 apartments at the same complex. They are all the same size and have similar amenities. Please let us know if you would prefer a 1st floor or a 2nd floor option. Please see pictures for examples of our bedrooms, living areas, kitchens, and dining areas.

If you want to stay within walking distance of Shands Hospital, the VA Hospital, the Veterinarian School, and University of Florida campus, this is the place for you. No hassle, no parking headaches, and all the amenities you need for a short or long stay in Gainesville.

The longer your stay, the lower your daily rate.

We are also always happy to give suggestions for favorite restaurants, Gainesville activities, day-trips, etc... we strive to make sure that all of our guests have a 5-star experience. The owners are very involved in the community, so they keep up to date on Gainesville activities and happenings and pass along suggestions to their guests.

You have two fantastic restaurant areas just 5 minutes away. Downtown Gainesville is just a 5 minute drive away, and the Archer Road restaurants are just 5 minutes away as well. If you prefer to travel by bus, there is a bus stop just steps away from the apartment.

This apartment is on the first floor for easy access, and is newly remodeled with all new furniture and electronics. You will be extremely comfortable. While the outside of the condo buildings have an outdated 70s look, the inside of my fully renovated condo is very 2013! And the location couldn't be better.

The apartment is fully furnished to accommodate 4 people. The bedroom has a queen bed with a very comfortable mattress with an aloe layer for a cooling effect. We have a blow-up mattress for additional guests.

On-site amenities include 1 pool and 2 laundry facilities. The apartment is 575 SF. We are also always available if you need suggestions for outings, restaurants, etc...

The owner is an avid nature photographer, so is very familiar with all of the great spots to see alligators, bison, horses, birds, flowers, beautiful Oak Hammocks... you name it!

Very pleasant stay

My husband and I were in Gainesville for his daughter's wedding. This was our first experience with home away. We were very happy with our stay. We did have to call maintence and they responded right away. I would not hesitate to do this again. Thank you Suzanna for pleasant stay.

A home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is comfortable and clean and very well equipped. Feels like a home away from home. I was relocating from PA to Gainesville and very happy I was able to stay in Susannah's rental until I purchased my home. It was very close to work for me as well as other amenities. Susannah is very prompt to respond and address any questions, concerns or issues that may pop up. I highly recommend contacting Susannah if you ever need a short term or long term stay in Gainesville. You will not be disappointed!

Highly recommend

  • 5 of 5

This was a very tastefully decorated and pleasant place to stay. It is certainly convenient to all the hospitals, and the campus. My father is at Oak Hammock,so it was just a stone's throw to get there. The apartment complex is very quiet. Enjoyed a very nice Christmas there. Would definitely stay there again.

Perfect location and amenities for Shands Hospital Visit

  • 5 of 5

Our son was going in for surgery at Shands Hospital. This apartment is located walking distance to the front door. The apartment played as headquarters for our get away from the hospital. Nice quite neighborhood, great room layouts, friendly neighbors, and great landlords. Susannah was completely awesome. Checking in on us to see our sons condition and even calling us at home to see how he was doing. I have used VRBO in Italy and the US., and this experience will make us keep using it. Thank-you, awesome job.

Owner Amazing and Space Comfortable

  • 4 of 5

I went to Gainesville to see family at Shands. Summit House is very close and within walking distance. Inside Susannah's condo is completely remodeled and everything was clean and worked. I needed an extra pair of sheets for a guest and the request was met in the same day. The bathroom is in the bedroom so if you have guests on air mattress or couch it's good to know they must come into the bedroom to use it. Complex was definitely older but quiet.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much, Julie! It was a pleasure to host you and your family! I'm so glad the convenience of the condo worked out (definitely walking distance and easy to access Shands). I do try to let people know that the outside of the buildings is outdated, but the insides are fully renovated, clean and modern-- and the location can't be beat. It's always a pleasure to host our guests and we look forward to hosting many more guests in the future!

Recommended for long stays

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed in this apartment for 3 weeks- we were in town for a research project at UF. It was a great place and exceeded all our expectations. The neighborhood is nice and quiet. The apartment is well equipped (kitchen, TV, towels etc.) and very clean. Air-conditioning works great. The owner was very nice. She was very considerable regarding the price for the long period as well as for my many changes. In one word: "recommended!"
