About Susannah Peddie

Why Susannah Peddie chose Duckpond
Managing my short-term properties is my full-time job (not a side job)- I have 19 vacation/corporate housing/ short-term rental properties and have full-time staff to help me, which means that you will always be taken care of. I live within 10 minutes of all of my properties (and in the case of the bungalow, 10 seconds) so am easily accessible.
What makes this House unique
Downtown living is fantastic! We love being able to talk to all of the local, delicious restaurants.
Canceled bookings will not receive a refund
Damage and incidentals
You will be responsible for any damage to the rental property caused by you or your party during your stay.

Perfect place for rest and close proximity to nightlife
The check in and communication was flawless. The home was neat, clean and well cared for. The proximity was great, 6-8 minute walk to great bars and restaurants. Would stay again The next time we come to town. Thanks again for the hospitality.
Charming home in great downtown location
Walk to downtown coffee shops, bars and restaurants or shuttle bus to football games. Very quaint home...cozy...beautiful historical area. Look forward to our next stay here
“Home Away from Home!”
Choosing online sight-unseen can be risky. From clothes to food to restaurants to vacations to hotels. Pictures can allure one to a nightmare experience. Right? Everyone has a story to tell. And I recently had a story to tell from one nightmare booking in California. But NOT with this review.
I was hopeful all the 5-star reviews were accurate. And they were. This adorable “Home Away From Home” we rented for an entire month. The accommodations were top notch. The air conditioning worked wonderfully for hot Gainesville. The location was perfect. The living space was comfortable and perfect for our needs. Each room and detail had been thoughtfully planned out.
We thank the owners. They were wonderful to communicate and work with.
Anyone would appreciate this quiet neighborhood and up-to-date renovations to a quaint home. Thank you again for making this “Home Away From Home” a pleasant, happy, and safe stay.
Beautiful little house in a lovely neighborhood!
The house was just as advertised - we had no problems. We were in Gainesville to find an apartment for my daughter, who'll be in grad school at UF in the fall. This was a perfect location for a base - it's so close to downtown and the university.
To top it off, she found an apartment a block away, so I know where we'll try to stay when we come to visit.
Duck Pond Delight!
Oh my. This place is an absolute delight. We stayed for a month and fell in love with Gainesville in general and Duck Pond specifically. For the first week we were there we did not need to drive anywhere. Everything is so conveniently located. If you stay here be sure to check out Bo Diddley Plaza for yoga, music and the farmers market. And be sure to try out as many restaurants as you can. The food is wonderful. We were also fortunate enough to catch the Santa Fe art festival. Susannah thought of everything. The king-sized bed is great. The house layout is highly functional and I used the bedroom as my office for a month with no issues. Looking forward to coming back next year.
