About Elizabeth Bolton

As a husband and wife team, we (Jim Post and Elizabeth Bolton), have owned and managed residential rental properties for about 30 years. Vacation rentals are a relatively new endeavor and we find that it is exciting to accommodate short term visitors with different needs and requirements. Jim is originally from New Jersey and grew up in Miami before pursuing a career in electrical engineering. His work took him to many places before coming to Gainesville. As a native Floridian and a recently retired UF professor, I believe Gainesville is absolutely the best place in Florida to live, learn and enjoy life. The community is vibrant and the student population keeps us young at heart. And when you need them, the medical facilities are without equal. We strive to meet the needs of our rental residents both short and long term. Our goal is to provide you with lodging that will make your stay comfortable and satisfying so that when you return to the area you will want to stay with us. Our philosophy is that we will only rent to you a place we would personally live in.

Elizabeth Bolton purchased this condo in 2006

Why Elizabeth Bolton chose Gainesville

This property is the epitome of location preference for visitors desiring walking proximity to UF, Shands, Vet School and VA. These condos are perfect for Shands visitors, football and graduation weekends, conference participants, visiting scholars, students and parents who are looking for home style comforts with superb accommodations. Our condos are on first floor to allow easy access. The Summit House Condos have been a landmark in Gainesville for decades and are solidly built on the high ground in this part of Gainesville, hence the name Summit House.

What makes this condo unique

In the heart of beautiful Central Florida, close to downtown Gainesville, major highways - US 75 and 441, UF and Santa Fe College, museums, live theatre, restaurants, wildlife preserves and natural resource areas. There is something interesting, educational, entertaining for every season here in North Central Florida and Gainesville has a major share of the attractions for every season.

Excellent accommodations!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I visited Gainesville for the South Carolina/Florida game and we couldn't have asked for better accommodations. The condo is conveniently located within walking distance to the Florida campus, so we were able to walk to the football stadium and miss the game day traffic. The condo was recently renovated and was freshly painted and had all new furnishings, kitchenware and linen. The beds were extremely comfortable and each room had an overhead fan which kept us nice and cool. Just down the road, there is plenty of shopping, grocery stores, movie theaters, etc. Elizabeth was very helpful and easy to work with. I definitely recommend this condo and would stay again if the opportunity arises.

Awesome landlord

  • 5 of 5

I have to say that my stay at the condos has been extremely pleasant. Susannah is the most kind and accommodating landlord that I have ever had. She has gone out of her way to make my stay here one that I will remember. I would recommend staying here for a night or two or long term as well. I have been here for 6 months now and hate to leave!!

The condo is centrally located close to downtown and the University of Florida. US 75 is about 3 miles and easily accessible for trips to central and south Florida for day trips or weekends. Try and visit the butterfly garden and the museum of natural history on the UF Campus for some really unusual displays that are unique in this part of the South. The cold water springs are a natural wonder and these are found in this part of Florida in abundance. Be sure to visit as many as you can as all are different. Once you swim in one of these you will never forget it. Also try tubing down the Itchetucknee River that separates Suwannee and Columbia County. The temperature will guarantee deep blood circulation for several hours after you get out. Do this only in summer months!! There is so much to see and do in this part of the state that gives a flavor of north Florida which is so different from the central and southern part of the state. Do drive around and get a view of the many heritage oaks that are native to our area. Everyone loves them and even the developers strive to protect them. Go see the alligators in the Paynes Prairie preserve. These guys are for real and they are huge. Don't worry, you can't feed them and they are fenced off but the habitat is all natural and exciting to see. Then you will know why the UF team is the Florida Gators!!
