Best Place In Gainesville, FL for an extended stay - Nicer Finishes Than Any Gainesville Location, Including Hotels
"I stayed for some time in this place - and will never stay anywhere else again. The apartment has beautiful renovations - split face marble in the bathroom, very modern and sleek kitchen with a beautiful gas range and dishwasher, not to mention a huge refrigerator! The big creamy leather sectional in the living room is perfect for watching the wall-mounted TV and Blu-Ray, and high speed internet is included! Parking was a breeze - never had trouble finding a spot by the door, unlike most of the rest of Gainesville. We had a duck sandwich at the Blue Gill restaurant (which we walked to) and it was fantastic. The neighborhood felt safe, looked very much like the "Gainesville" aesthetic. Adams Ribs (one of the best rib joints in town) will be coming soon I saw as well! Also within walking distance was a CVS for quick things, and a very short drive to Winn Dixie or Publix, Walmart, Target, Lowes, and other shopping on Archer Rd. The owner provided excellent service - the place was as clean as a whistle, and the linens were crisp. The air worked very well, and kept the place very comfortable. Neighbors were quiet, mostly medical students sleeping during the day and working at Shands at night, from what I could observe. Payment was convenient, and the owner was very good at communicating with us. I know this sounds like a travel brochure, but I really can't say enough about this gem in Gainesville. If my own home had finishings like this, I would never go on vacation!"

Home Away from Home in Gainesville, FL!
Susannah is an exceptional host and her condo was exactly as it looks in the photos. I was amazed by her attention to detail and her concern for my comfort while visiting Gainesville. The condo is very clean, beautifully decorated, and has everything one would need. Perfect location to the University of Florida, UF/Shands hospital, and the Veterinary College. Susannah takes great care to insure your stay is welcoming and wonderful. She has tips for everything from great local restaurants to parks and outdoor activities. She is easy to contact and very attentive to her guests, very fast replies. The on-site laundry and pools make for a relaxing environment. It was truly a home away from home for me, as I was there about a month. I was studying at a UF summer program, and the condo was truly an oasis at the end of the day. And Susannah's art work makes a lovely personal touch! Thank you, Susannah!
Review for Eagle Trace Townhouse
First, I would like to say that we were pleased with our stay from beginning to end. You were always prompt and courteous in answering all my calls and questions. (And there were many!) The townhouse was clean and nicer than the pictures on your website. It wasn't stark and cold like some rentals. It felt homey with all the added touches. We especially enjoyed Susannah's photography.
We've been juggling so much for the past year with my husband in Shands and any kindness shown does not go unnoticed or unappreciated. For that, I am grateful.
Please know that I will always recommend your company to friends, family, and anyone at Shands needing a place. I truly appreciate your kindness.
