Our home is less than a mile to UFHealth at Shands and the Malcom Randall Veterans Medical Center. We are a mile to the University of Florida campus. Amazingly, also a short bike ride (1-2 miles) to Downtown Gainesville. Close to Depot Park, art studios, restaurants, music venues, and theater. Nature parks close too. The bonus is we live on 2 acres, tucked back in a quiet neighborhood. Our pool is deep & cool; we have bikes to borrow. The container is perfect for a solo traveler, or a couple.

Excellent location and amazing property. A great experience of the Floridian vibe! Privacy is ensured despite some may find themselves out of their comfort zone. Not us, we loved everything about the place and the fresh picked grapefruit was like icing on the cake!

Great quiet spot very close to campus! Loved the privacy and the outdoor shower was a wonderful touch. Peter was easy to communicate with and was there to welcome us and made sure we had everything we needed to feel at home! Very natural and comfortable place to stay.
