    The house was nice and had everything we needed. A short walk to campus.

  • Perfect Gator weekend


    Cute and comfortable home within walking distance to campus. Enjoyed a long family weekend with daughter, her roommate and her family. Plenty of space and amenities for family and friends for dinner after the football game. Would definitely book again the next time we’re in town!

  • Great Stay!


    This was a great house for us to visit with old friends while back in town. The host was very responsive and the house is well appointed. We loved the dining table with view of the great backyard.
