    Excellent Property, Location & Customer service!
    I was Super Impressed with this property beginning with the excellent Attention & Customer service offered by Susannah & ending with the cleanliness & beautiful decorated property! A private covered parking is definitely a Plus! We were desperately looking for a place to stay because of hurricane Irma from South FL & I must say Susannah's extended courtesies were a life saver to say the least! Thank You for being so kind in our time of need. I will definitely return & stay here again & highly recommend it anyone visiting Gainsville! Jackson Square property was the Best! Kudos to your management! Continue taking Pride in your properties, your dedication & commitment is evident! I will see you again soon as my niece attends UF, I will be here for many games etc. 😉 Again I can't Thank You enough for the extended courtesies, It speaks Volume!

    Excellent service and well-maintained
    The owner was the most accommodating I've ever encountered! The condo was beautifully maintained, and we really appreciated having a full kitchen to use for our time there. Parking was readily available, and neighbors were all very friendly. Thanks for a great experience, we'll definitely use your condo the next time we visit Gainesville!

    4/5 Good

    Great location, comfortable and nicely decorated!
    We stayed at this unit for two nights while attending an event in the Gainesville area. It is roomy, in convenient location to restaurants and bars and very-well furnished. It was an added bonus that the building is attached to a parking garage with specific spaces assigned for the condo -- we never had to worry about finding parking!

    5/5 Excellent

    So grateful
    When my husband had a stroke while we were on vacation in Clearwater, Florida, he was taken to Shands Hospital in Gainesville. Our children came down from Minnesota for a short time and wanted to find long-term housing for me before they had to return home. They found this condo on VRBO and communicated by email with Susannah even though she was on vacation with her family out west. She enabled me to move in right away and promised to take care of my housing until my husband was released. And she kept her word, despite the fact that I had to move to another location for the last night of my stay. And it happened to be graduation weekend, one of the busiest times of the school year. She took that burden off my shoulders at a time when all I could concentrate on was my husband's health. The condo was clean, comfortable, and beautifully decorated. The kitchen was supplied with all the basic necessities. A notebook on the counter held all the information needed to deal with parking, laundry, restaurants, etc. I never met Susannah, but I will be eternally grateful to her for all she did for me when I was facing a family tragedy.
