Amazing - Worth Every Penny!!
The pictures don’t do this place justice! This property is enormous and perfectly appointed in every way (i.e., supplies, decoration, layout, etc.) – you won’t want for anything. It is perfectly located for any University of Florida event - an easy ½ mile walk to either Ben Hill Griffin Stadium (The Swamp) or the O’Connell Center. We also walked to/from midtown bars. There are four large bedrooms on the 2nd floor, each with completely stocked, full bathrooms. Surprising little details attended to as well – a small fridge with water & beverages, as well as a small table for coffee/tea with supplies, etc. on the landing area of the 2nd floor. The kitchen had everything you would want or need, including coffee supplies for Keurig/Nespresso/Mr. Coffee. We were in town for graduation celebration with extended family – perfectly located close to everything as there’s a lot of back/forth for different ceremonies. We hosted a party for our family and my son’s friends & families (about 35 people) in between ceremonies; plenty of space to accommodate a larger group. In fact, most of our activity was focused in the bar area (with the TV showing the NFL draft) and rear patio where there was great seating and some cornhole gaming. We catered food with plenty of space for layout in the dining room. The best part was how appreciative my son and his friends/families were to have a place to convene. Getting locations for group activities during busy Gainesville weekends is really hard and this place is perfect! Lastly, from our first contact to departure, Daniel was amazingly responsive and gave us tons of support. He stayed in touch before our arrival with great instructions, checking on us during our stay and then after. If you want a high-end experience and convenient place to stay – book with Daniel!

Perfect Gainesville Getaway
Nice house in quiet residential neighborhood. Easy walking distance to UF football stadium. We watched our nephew play football against Florida and had wonderful visit. Short drive to many good restaurants downtown. The house has many up scale amenities and is just as advertised.
