About this listing

My clean and comfortable guest room is ready for your stay! A mere 7 minute drive to downtown, or a block away from a bus-stop that'll get you there, you'll stay close to town while enjoying the feeling of a relaxing, quiet semi-rural environment.

Guest access

The whole house and backyard are available to you during your stay, please make yourself at home...take a nap in the hammock out back by the orange trees, or catch up on your Game of Thrones on the Roku HBO in the living room. Or maybe go to town perfecting your homemade hummus recipe in my small but well-equipped kitchen (including food processor, hand blender, lots of condiments, stainless steel cookware). The bathroom is shared with one other person (me!) but I'm pretty low-maintenance and don't spend much time in there ;)

Caroline was an amazing host. The place was clean and she had everything I needed ready for me. I will stay again!

Caroline is a very helpful host catering to your every need and is always there if you have any questions regarding Gainesville. She has a nice cozy home in a residential area that is calm but close enough at the same time. It is close to the downtown area and 15-20 mins away from the University of Florida campus depending on traffic. Caroline is a very interesting person, likes to have fun and enjoys a good conversation where you'll be scratching your head. I would definitely recommend her home as a place to stay in Gainesville.

Phenomenal host; I highly recommend Caroline. She was very accommodating, easy to talk to and welcoming. The room was perfect, location very convenient and a great value. She even encouraged me to pick some oranges from her tree in back. Best Airbnb host I've had.

Caroline is a very nice person. She worked with me adding an extra day to my itinerary as I needed it. During my stay she was studying to pass one of her acupuncture licensing exams. Perhaps it was this that which distracted her but the place was a little dirty. She would pile dishes in the sink until you couldn't access it. There was a strong smell in the bedding of rot. Also, she left the toilet unflushed a lot which was pretty gross. I'd add the neighborhood is not safe. Police took her statement regarding a burglary while I was there and she warned me to keep everything locked. The host had company over and were typically loud. Caroline is sweet, mostly, but I will not be staying here again. By far the worst AirBnB experience I've ever had-sorry Caroline.

Caroline is amazing! This was my second time staying with her. Her house is clean and comfortable. The twin bed is great. No doubt I will keep staying here.

Caroline was wonderful! She was there to help me in and took care to make sure I knew where everything was. It was a very welcoming place in a quiet neighborhood. Much closer to the action Gainesville offers than you'd think! Considering traffic I'd rather be on this side of town during a home game. The room is cozy but functional, and the bathroom was very clean and tidy. Although we only got to talk for a little bit, I'm sure she's a very caring individual. It was a pleasure to get to stay here!

Caroline User ProfileCaroline is a superhost.

I am a graduate student studying acupuncture. I just started my clinical internship so I am pretty busy - sometimes you'll see me and sometimes you won't :)

I love eating and I love traveling so when those 2 come together, it's the perfect combination!
I've lived in Florida my whole life (save for one magical winter on the island of Martha's Vineyard!!). Some of my recent favorite travel places on this continent are Montreal, CAN; DownEast Maine; Martha's Vineyard, MA; Boston, MA; Brooklyn, NY; and Savannah, GA.
As a host, I am laid-back and welcoming, while also giving you as much space and privacy as you need. I've lived in this town for a long time so can give you a great list of all the nature spots and eateries to check out while you're here.
