We had a great time. Perfect location to everything. My family enjoyed getting to gather for my daughter's wedding at The gardeners. Thanks looking forward to another stay.

Not bad for the size/price, but older and can hear everything outside

  • 3 of 5

For the price and size of the condo, it wasn't bad for a temporary stay. The owners responded to messages/concerns very quickly and had everything you needed in the condo from laundry detergent, toilet paper, soap, etc. The condo was clean, but the bathrooms and kitchen definitely could have been cleaned more. The location was nice in terms of proximity to restaurants/things to do, but it is right off of the highway, which can be loud at times. The condo is older and you can tell from the inside/outside. If you're sitting in the living/dining room, you can hear everything that goes on outside/in the hallway. You can also hear everything that goes on in the surrounding condos upstairs/downstairs (walking, vacuuming, running appliances, closing doors, barking dogs, etc). I wouldn't recommend this condo if you are a light sleeper or have a child who is a light sleeper because you can hear everything that goes on in other units and outside. Two out of the three mattresses were ok, but one was very uncomfortable to sleep on. The kitchen is older, but all of the appliances are functional. The refrigerator has a water leak so there is a bowl to catch water in there, but the water still ends up getting everywhere causing water to pool and sometimes freeze on items in the refrigerator. The TV is an old tube TV, and while there is cable, the channels are limited. The pool and gym are nice amenities, but we didn't use them. I would use this condo for a shorter stay instead of a longer stay like we did (1.5 months), but I will say it was a good price for the amount of space/location, and the owners gave us a long term discount.

Family gathering

  • 4 of 5

Our family arrived in Gainesville to surprise our oldest daughter and her family for both Easter and her birthday. The location was perfect...only a mile or so from them, and we were able to walk back and forth easily. The living space of this apartment was spacious and open, and many amenities were provided. We enjoyed our stay!

Very clean with lots of room

  • 5 of 5

The condo was just as described. There was plenty of room for our family to stay.

We really enjoyed the porch to sit on in the evenings and the location was excellent right next to the interstate, mall, restaurants and every store you might need. The neighbors were nice too.

We would definitely come and stay there again.

Apartment is located about 25-30 driving distance from the University. On the other hand, the closest apartments to University is still requires about 10-15 minutes driving. Therefore, location was okay.

Price is reasonable for 3 bedroom apartment. The amount of required deposit is also reasonable, and my deposit money has been refunded.

Apartment is pretty quite.

Descriptions to enter that apartment and to use equipments are also quite clear. AC/Heater and other equipments are working.

On the other hand, apartment and furnitures are little too old and need to renovation. Even strings for ceiling fans and lambs are missing. It seems that apartment around is not properly taking care of it.

Easy to communicate with owner.
