1 bedroom 1 bath apartment, near UF & thd airport, full kitchen and bath. Very comfortable queen sized bed. Beautiful living room and breakfast bar w/ great lighting throughout. Quarter mile nature trail through 5 acres of magnolias, oaks & ancient pines right outside the front door. Enjoy the real Florida!

The space
Enjoy a full kitchen, private bath and very comfortable queen size bed in this recently renovated space that literally sparkles (there is glass glitter and mica in the concrete countertops!). It's a 435 square foot open floor plan with bedroom area, living room lounge, kitchen, coffee/study nook, and full bathroom with a walk in shower stall. The bed is brand new and very comfortable, both soft and supported at the same time to fit practically every sleep need.

This place is the passion project of one woman (me!), and it's been a deep and daunting labor of love. As rewarding as it was overwhelming, but the transformation has been so very fun to see happen and now there is amazing natural light pouring in from all the right places, newly refinished antique heart pine floors, wallpaper from an Etsy shop in Italy on the bedroom walls and ceiling, a moroccan chandelier from an Etsy shop in Turkey hanging in the bathroom, mid-century vintage lamps all over and basically, everywhere you look is playful, fun and very pretty. It's a life sized doll house for you to come an enjoy!

For the nature lovers among, the woods are equally spectacular, full of owls, hawks, woodpeckers, deer galore, and even an occasional gopher tortoise! This is kind of the last stop on the nature train from a green belt that connects all the way to Georgia, so there's an awesome and surprising amount of wildlife in the surrounding woods. I was honestly more interested in preserving this vital ecosystem for the non-human life when I bought the property, only to realize that renovating the little houses would become a major creative outlet for me as well as a way to fund and maintain the surrounding urban wilds!

In addition to the sweet pad you'll have access to when you stay here, you'll be supporting a woman owned business and a vital ecosystem for plants and animals alike. Woot woot!

Guest access
Guests have access to the house, front porch, and the quarter mile hiking trail thru 5 acres of woods.

Other things to note

Location

Gainesville, Florida, United States

The Crane's Landing is located in an urban area close to good food, a great grocery store, and fun cafes. This is a racially diverse and culturally vibrant neighborhood with a rich history as a haven for working class families for generations. The streets nearby are lined with well loved, well maintained, owner occupied homes and lots of trees. It's a beautiful neighborhood to explore by bike or on foot. All this said, it is urban! It is not a gated community in the suburbs. If that is what you are looking for, please look elsewhere. If, however, urban oasis is your cup of tea, you will love it here.

I'm a nature lover, massage therapist and writer who moved here from Chicago ten years ago, now living the Florida dream. I truly enjoy hosting people and creating a wonderful experience for my guests. I've spent a lot of time exploring the bountiful wonders of North Central Florida, and am happy to share what I know and offer day trip suggestions about the wild places nearby.
