Luxury 2 Br Condos In Downtown Gainesville- Walk To Restaurants, Bars, And Uf

Great for families and groups of friends.

I have 6 similar 2/2 condos at The Palms condominiums- all are beautifully decorated and are spacious and convenient.

Visiting Gainesville for UF sports, graduation, Shands, vacation, or sightseeing? We have the perfect place for you. Come back and relax after your event- or watch your event from the flat-screen TVs in this beautiful condo. These condos were built in 2008 and are steps away from local restaurants and bars, and also walking distance from UF.

If you don't want to worry about lodging for football season, you can rent the house for the entire season and leave your things there.

With granite countertops, high 10' ceilings, 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, and 2 walk-in closets, these condos have plenty of space to spread out. We also have a washer and dryer in each condo. We are also just a 10 minutes drive from La Chua Trail (a Florida State Park) where you are guaranteed to see 1 to 100 alligators.

The condos are also just 11 blocks from UF campus, and less than 20 blocks from the Swamp and the O'Connell Center.

The owners also live in downtown Gainesville, and can be easily reached via phone and e-mail.

One bedroom has a king bed and the other bedroom has a queen bed- perfect for families or for friends sharing a home (bedroom configurations may vary depending on which of the 6 condos booked).

*Please note that football weekends, Gator Nationals, and Graduation weekends are considered special event weekends and taxes/ weekend (up to 3 nights, or early check-in/ late-check out for a Friday arrival and Sunday departure).

**Please also note that downtown since the condos are located in downtown Gainesville, there may be occasional noise from downtown bars/ clubs- I have provided box fans in every bedroom as white noise as well as sound machines. This message applies only to the east facing condos in the building. A few guests have reported noise, but I have all the supplies necessary for light sleepers, just in case.

Perfect place to stay while visiting our UF student

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in this condo several times and we love it. We were able to have home cooked family dinners while visiting our daughter. We are looking forward to our next visit. We love the location and the condo is very nice and comfortable. The customer service we receive during each visit is 5 star.

Great location, comfortable beds

  • 5 of 5

Because we wanted to be right downtown in Gainesville, this location couldn't be better. The owner was available for questions and quickly supplied chairs for the balcony on request - we were very pleased! The space is comfortable and very updated with a nice, large kitchen.

Location, location, location!

  • 5 of 5

If your desire is to experience what downtown Gainesville has to offer on your stay, look no further. This condo's location is excellent. You are within a short walk to many bars, restaurants and other varieties of entertainment. In fact, if the High Dive bar is having a concert you'll be able enjoy the music from the bedroom's balcony. The Condo's interior is excellent also. The complex itself is quaint and provides a private setting due to the secured gates. The parking garage is super convenient and provides an easy come and go experience with the attached sky bridge which is conveniently located on the same level/floor (3rd) as unit #308. My desire was the lack of televisions in the bedrooms. Then again, who goes on vacation to watch TV. Book this place, It's AWESOME!

Yes, luxurious indeed!

  • 5 of 5

This condo far exceeded my expectations! It was beautifully decorated, spacious with new utilities, and an excellent location for getting around Gainesville. The covered parking was a nice added bonus as well. I had no problems with my stay or in communicating with Susannah (who was incredibly helpful). Could not recommend this condo highly enough!

Great location and beautiful condo

  • 5 of 5

The condo is in a great location that is walking distance from many wonderful restaurants. It also has a beautiful kitchen for eating in. We hope to return to this property every time we visit our daughter. When there was a problem with the A/C, Susannah was very responsive and took care of everything. We really appreciated her willingness to make sure our stay was perfect. We would highly recommend this property to anyone visiting Gainesville.

5 Star and more

  • 5 of 5

I just returned from renting a condo at the Palms with my children. We were there for a week while my son attended Entomology Camp at UF. It was not only a beautiful, safe and spacious place but the great customer service provided by Susannah and her staff could not have been topped. My son had a great time at bug camp and also when he got back to the condo in the pool :-). It was truly a blessing to have stayed there during our week.

Gainesville is home to many cultural activities- the UFPA (University of Florida Performing Arts) hosts 2+ international/ national performances each week, the Museum of Natural History has a beautiful butterfly rainforest, the Harn Museum of Art has many pieces from the Masters, and much more.

Gainesville is also home to many Florida State Parks where alligators, bison, deer, turkey and many types of birds can be viewed. We also have a great botanical garden, Kanapaha Gardens, as well as a beautiful downtown historic district.

After you book your stay, I will provide a complete guide for things to do in Gainesville.
