The Space

Apartment located in beautiful downtown triplex-home. Walking distance to Downtown, The Hippodrome indie movie theater, restaurants, bars, concert venues, shops and the Thomas Center. Ten minute drive to Shands and only seven-minute drive to the University of Florida. The apartment is made of oak floors and has a beautiful wooden double door and arch imported from Italy. Ample dining and living room area and beautiful full-kitchen that gets lots of morning sunlight. Fully furnished. Cable TV includes HBO and Showtime. Also Apple TV is available with Netflix, Hulu etc. Washer and dryer. Sizable bathroom with vintage tub and sink. Beautiful backyard with bamboo, flowers and garden.

Guest Access

Access includes the front porch, kitchen, bathroom, the dining room, the living room and the bedroom. None of these areas will be shared with other people. This home is a triplex and the two other apartments are occupied by our family. Guests have full access to share the backyard with us although barbecuing is not permitted.

Interaction with Guests

We love sharing our love for Gainesville with our guests. My husband and I work full time, however - myself as a nurse and my husband as a music journalist - so our availability in person will be often but not always. You can always one of us by phone, which will be given to you at the time of occupancy. My mother lives on the property also. She is very active and helpful but she only speaks Portuguese and Spanish.

The Neighborhood

The neighborhood is a five-minute walk from the historic Duckpond neighborhood, a five-minute walk from the Bed and Breakfast District and 10-minute walk from downtown. Our neighborhood is a mixed area with both historic housing and low-income housing, including a Salvation Army two blocks away. Having lived here for 12 years, we can honestly say that we have never had a problem with our neighbors.

Getting Around

There is a bus stop two blocks away, on the corner of University Avenue and 8th Street. As mentioned before, downtown, replete with shops, restaurants and night life is within walking distance. We are a seven-minute drive from the University of Florida (1.6 miles), which can even be walked in about half-an-hour. We are 2.6 miles from Shands Hospital. We are 3.8 miles from the beautiful Hawthorne Trail, which leads to Payne's Prairie Park, where you can see alligators, wild horses and many other animals in their natural environment.

Other Things to Note

There is a full-size bed in the bedroom, which can fit one or two comfortably. There is also a twin-size mattress underneath the bed that can sleep another if necessary.

Millions of people are using Airbnb to sleep in strangers' homes, beds, and even couches. They have an amazing selection and you can't find their stuff anywhere else. There is a catch: you often need to contact several hosts to actually get a place to stay, so make sure you give yourself some lead time.
