Family Friendly Home Availalble Jan. 1st.
We're looking for someone to take over the lease on our rental house around Jan 1st (we could make it available earlier if need be) as we are completing purchase of a house in a few days. We've been happy here as a family of 4 with two kids over the past 2 years. The house is in a great neighborhood (Haile Plantation) very close to top rated elementary school (Wiles) and middle school (Kanapaha). The house is 4 bedroom/2 bath with 2-car garage, privacy fencing around backyard, bamboo floors, citrus trees, and lost of other nice touches. We currently pay $1750. It is a little further from campus than other neighborhoods, but compensates with a number of nice amenities including walking trails, shops, and a killer farmers market. And there is a new express bus that runs from directly between Haile and campus regularly throughout the day. If you are interested, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I can tell you more about it and put you in touch with the rental agency.
Sublease a spacious 2000 sq. ft. 2bed/2bath + bonus room apartment in Tower 24 Apartments (near the corner of SW 75th St. and SW 24th Ave). It’s a very quiet area and idea for faculty, graduate students, doctoral students and postdocs. The rent is $1415/month. Close proximity to a bus stop. Available now.

Furnished room available in a 2br/1b house, Gainesville, FL
Furnished room available in a 2br/1b house for $450 a month (not including utilities & internet, ~$100 a month). Available Jan. 1, starting with a 6-month lease.
I’m a female graduate student (with a cat) seeking a housemate that similarly values cleanliness and a quiet environment conducive to working from home – would be great for a fellow student/academic or anyone else that enjoys a similar lifestyle.
The house is one of a handful on a short street in a quiet neighborhood (Gateway Park). It has a driveway, a small screened-in porch, and a big backyard with a beautiful patio. There’s also space for a small garden, just waiting to be tended.
It’s centrally located in terms of grocery stores (Wards, Publix, Lucky’s) and proximity to both UF campus and downtown (+/-2 miles to each). The closest bus is just a short (~5 min) walk away, as is the bike path that connects to downtown, Depot Park, and the Hawthorne trail.
If interested, please contact Natalie at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Lovely 2 BD/1BA Furnished Home in Historic Duckpond Neighborhood Downtown Available for Short or Long Term Stay
This beautiful furnished first story home overlooks the gardens of the Thomas Center, in the peaceful, historic Duckpond neighborhood just a 5-10 minute walk from downtown Gainesville. A large porch provides the perfect place to enjoy a cup of coffee or a glass of wine, while the light, airy living area offers a pleasant, air-conditioned space. Two generously sized bedrooms are accompanied by a spacious hallway bathroom and large living & dining areas with a chef's kitchen. There is wifi throughout, so work can be done from a desk, couch, or on the porch.
The neighborhood is very quiet and peaceful, surrounded by huge live oaks and the oldest and most distinguished homes in town. In fact, the home just south of ours was built by UF's first president and he was rumored to have given speeches from the second floor balcony that overlooks Roper Park. Though our neighborhood is very quiet with no traffic noise or loud neighbors, just two blocks west is Main Street and five blocks south is University Avenue and the heart of downtown Gainesville. It's incredibly easy to walk (5 minutes) or bike (2 minutes) downtown. UF campus is a 4-7 minute drive away (depending on if you get red lights or green) or a quick 10-15 minute bike ride (whether your pace is quick or leisurely). And, as mentioned above, it's a quick 6-10 minute drive to/from the Gainesville Airport.
There is a high efficiency central heat & air system as well as a full size washer & dryer on site. We ask that folks please not smoke anywhere inside or outside on the property. No pets, please.
Prefer 1-2 responsible faculty/staff, postdoc(s), resident(s), visiting scholar(s), graduate/business/law/medical/vet student(s). Available immediately, short or long term. Rent negotiable depending on length of stay— includes utilities & internet (there is also an electric car charting station on site, if needed). Email email@example.com for more information and pictures.
