  • Better than the puctures!


    We loved staying here and it was super close to everything, as we were in for a family wedding! The house was great and even better than the pictures indicated. We will definitely be back when in Gainesville next!

  • The details


    Firstly, house numbers hard to see on mailbox, one side peeling off. Entrance air fresheners overwhelming, four in total and I am allergic to them. I immediately removed and placed in zip lock. Detergent on sheets very strong and not hypoallergenic. No Kleenex. Rental said no shoes in house but floors and kitchen mats very dirty and quickly our socks and bare feet where black. Oven mitts in kitchen awfully dirty and the sink is covered with ants upon food prep use, Hulett needs to be called. Back porch the screen is ripped which allows for bugs in area so we did not use. Propane tank was empty and took over 45 minutes to replenish, back up tank should be on location. Massive hair ball on outside rug. Second night the alarm went off even though not in use saying zone FC 9/10/11. Third night alarm again FC 9/10/11 and then AC unit stopped working from approximately 8pm to 2am. This is why I said our stay was not enjoyable because it caused us a lot of stress. However I do believe that the property manager worked to solve all issues and hoping this feedback will make our next stay more enjoyable.
