Photos and Description of the Duckpond vacation house rental

House, 1 Bedroom + Other (See Description), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Great for families, and nothing but rave reviews from all guests!

Visiting Gainesville for UF sports, graduation, Shands, or sightseeing? We have the perfect place for you. Come back and relax after your event- or watch your event from the flat-screen TVs in the living room and bedroom. The house is newly renovated as of the summer of 2011 (it's 775 SF heated/ cooled).

You can walk to downtown bars and restaurants. We are also just a 10 minutes drive from La Chua Trail (a Florida State Park) where you are guaranteed to see 1 to 100 alligators.

We are also just 2 miles from UF campus, the Swamp, and the O'Connell Center.

The owners live next door to the house, and can be easily reached via phone and e-mail.

Also, please note that the 'convertible bed' is a queen sized blow-up mattress (with linens and pillows provided) and can be placed in the living room/ couch area. Pack-n- plays can fit in the bedroom.

Also, for extra safety we have an alarm system installed in the house which can be activated by guests.

*Prices may vary for event weekends (football, graduation, Gatornationals...).

Keywords: Walk to downtown Gainesville, sleeps 4, Gator game weekends, downtown Gainesville, quaint, cozy, fire place
