About Elizabeth Bolton

My husband, Jim Post, and I own and manage this property. We have just recently started converting our rental condos into furnished units. It has been an interesting and rewarding experience and we have followed our long term rental philosophy: we would not rent a property that we personally would not live in. You can be sure you will get a clean and attractive unit that meets our standards and yours too.

Elizabeth Bolton purchased this condo in 2006

Why Elizabeth Bolton chose Gainesville

The proximity of this condo to the major attractions in Gainesville such as the Hippodrome, down town entertainment and restaurants, Gainesville Historic District and most of all UF and Shands make this condo an ideal place to stay while you are away from home.

What makes this condo unique

Location is the unique aspect of this property. And it comes with many amenities not found in many locations so close to Shands and UF.

Super location for Hospital and testing

  • 4 of 5

Good size unit for 2 people. Perfectly adequate, fully stocked kitchen. Older unit so don't expect shiny and new. Clean and crisp bedding and towels.

Manager/Owner a sweetheart and very helpful. Plenty of parking. Comfy sofa/lg chair and large screen T.V.

BRING nite-lite for bathroom so that light/fan combo do not turn on and disturb: bed very close to bathroom door. I always bring night-lite as a rule when I travel. Remember to take with when you go.

There is a pool across the street from the unit, relatively close. Pool itself in good shape. Pool deck needs care, repair and paint, and more chairs. Again, as a rule, when traveling by car, I bring beach lounge chairs.

I was very appreciative of the paper towels, plates, and plastic cutlery, dishwasher soap, etc., stocked in the kitchen. And the extra T-paper and multi-colored face cloths in the bath. Thank you, Elizabeth!

Gainesville Getaway

  • 4 of 5

We booked this condo for February 2016. It is well maintained and appointed, and the owner was helpful, providing tips for getting there and getting things done. We happened to visit when the city's Medieval Faire was ongoing, which was great. The area is congested and busy with the hospital nearby, but we found it pretty easy to get around and did some exploring in all directions. We particularly liked Micanopy (short hop) and Cedar Key, (over on the Gulf). While not a traditional "vacation condo," we were satisfied with the location, since we used it as a base to get to know the lively college town of Gainesville.
