My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, business travelers, and furry friends (pets).

Full 1 Bed/1 Bath apartment with private entrance, kitchen, and living space.

Walking trails in neighborhood. Only 1.4 miles away from Loblolly Woods Nature Park. Located near most nature parks in Gainesville.

Bikes are available, 10 minute ride to UF campus, Football stadium, Baseball Field, O'connell Center, UF Health and VA medical center, all within 2 miles. In a nice quiet neighborhood.

The space

This is a guest house totally separate from our house, what is shared is a driveway and yard. My husband and I do not use the backyard amenities when guest are using them. If you want to use the back yard amenities we will close the dog door (our dog is friendly but a pest).

Guest access

There is a pool, firepit and waterfall all in a very private back yard that guest are welcome to use. We also have 4 bikes available for quests. Just let us know and we will have them ready.

Interaction with guests

We are available to help in anyway with any question or suggestion about the area.

Other things to note

My two dogs are very friendly but I ask that if you have a pet not to let them in the yards at the same time. We have a front and back yard that are fenced in, so we ask you to use the front yard for your dog. If you want to use the back yard amenities we will trade yards with you.

Great space. Quiet and has everything you need. Loved the pool and details of the house. Penny takes time to care about each and every guest. We will be back!

Penny's place is really perfect for 2 people. We had 3 adults and a child. It was spacious enough so that we did not feel too crowded. There is a pull-out bed in the living room area and a separate bedroom. The washer/dryer was awesome as we were in the area for a week. Two big dogs were very friendly and not at all intrusive on our backyard time (I am a dog person). The backyard is so nice- very private and the salt-water pool is a huge bonus. I will always plan to stay here when I come to Gainesville!

Our travel plans to Gainesville occurred days after hurricane Irma. Fortunately we were still able to fly into Gainesville. Penny was very accessible to communicate with and kept me updated on the status of the power outage. There was still no power at the place when we first arrived, but it did come on by late afternoon. We were fortunate, as there were still many Gainesville residents without power. Penny's place was very easy to check into, extremely clean and very comfortable. For a small space it feels very roomy and has everything you need. The pool was a hit with my granddaughter. We would not hesitate to stay here again! Thanks Penny!

We were Hurricane Irma refugees and last minute couldn't make. Penny was awesome in helping us work through the issues

Our stay was during the days leading up to hurricane Irma. The host, Penny went above and beyond, considering the need to prepare for what could have been a natural disaster in Gainesville! The pool, beautiful yard, grill, kitchen, washer and dryer TV, internet, closet space, and many other amenities made our first Airbnb experience a great one! Little things like the pool towels, hotel size soap and toothpaste, and even coffee in the cupboard were really nice. It was a great place that was very affordable and far superior to staying at a hotel for several days. We highly recommend this wonderful little place on a quiet street but close to everything. We will be back I'm sure!
