Description of the Gainesville vacation home rental

NEW PICTURES POSTED OF BACKYARD, POOL AND VOLLEYBALL COURT! UPDATE: We have just renovated two bathrooms and the entire backyard including landscaping, new zoysia sod, retaining walls, new fence around the pool, new pool deck, patios, beautiful plants. The current picture on this does not do the backyard justice. We will update pictures soon. In addition, to the side of the house, we have finished building a permanent sand beach volleyball court, tether ball set and in-ground trampoline. Horseshoes and gaga ball are coming. We have also just purchased beautiful new theater furniture, a full 16 theater chairs of the highest leather quality, all fully automatic and beautiful.

This multi million dollar property includes an 12,000 sq ft. home along with 3 cabins and a poolhouse. We completed a major inside and front yard renovation one year ago and have just completed a major backyard renovation along with two bathrooms inside. We worked with one of Atlanta's top designers to create a 5 star luxurious experience. The main house has 11 bedrooms and 9 full baths. The main floor has 2 kitchens. One is a professional kitchen for the chef in the family, while the other services a guest suite. The great room overlooks the lake, has a large flat screen tv, and a pool/ping pong table. The dining room table seats 12 comfortably and can easily add another table and chairs. There are additional tables and chairs to seat up to 36 on the screened porch.

There are 2 BR and 3 full Baths on this floor. There is a large 50 x 50 screened porch that overlooks the lake and pool area that is great for groups. We have 4 round tables and 36 chairs available to use in this space for dining or group gatherings.

The second den connects to a covered porch. Steps away is a 6 foot wide stone firepit that overlooks the pool and lake. It burns real wood, but has a gas starter for convenience. The basement has 2 BR and a full Bath. One room has 2 twin beds and the other has a king bed.

Upstairs you will find a 16 seat professional home theater with a 110' movie screen. There are 6 BR/4 BA upstairs, including a newly added master suite with a fireplace, jacuzzi tub, and three 6 foot windows that overlook the beautiful back yard and lake. The other master suite is brand new and has four built in bunks in the room beside it. The main laundry room is upstairs, but there are two other ones on the property as well.

There are three cabins, each having a separate entry, den, small fridge, microwave, and coffee pot. Cabin 1 is steps from the main house, connected to the garage and has 2 BR, 1 BA. It has a queen bed and 4 built in bunk beds. Cabin 2 is 1 BR with a queen bed and 1 BA. Cabin 3 is one large BR with 5 twin beds, one queen bed and a pull out sofa downstairs, along with 1BA.

The Poolhouse is screened in and has a full size fridge, microwave, full size bath, and two outdoor showers. It is steps away from the green egg grill on the patio. The back yard and lake views are seen from most rooms and the back yard is flat for the kids to play. There are three main outdoor decks to relax in and each one has plenty of ceiling fans to keep you cool in the summer. We are located in a quiet cove and surrounded by 15 acres of corps protected land, so it is very quiet. Enjoy fishing off the double deck party dock, or rent jet skis, pontoon boat, or ski boat at the nearby marina. We have two jet ski platforms and a place to tie your boat up.

Lake, pool, hot tub, home theater, pool table, lodge setting...this is the place to host your family reunion or group get together. Gather as a group or break away into small conversations in our many sitting areas and outdoor seating.

Please note: We do not rent cabins separately. When you rent, you get the entire facility, including the three cabins. We are not set up as a bed and breakfast, so please don't ask about renting cabins separately or renting part of the house. You get it all.

We are in a residential neighborhood with neighbors nearby. This is not the place for your loud party or events.

Here's a link to Initials Inc spring/summer catalogue. They used our house for the photo shoot.

Please email the owner to request a floor plan to use for planning purposes. Will consider stays of any length.

I had the opportunity to stay at one of the beautiful and comfortable house in Solana, 14 of us all the way from Jamaica and the kids loved it. I was not quite too please with some fixtures that were falling apart such as the room door-nob and the hand rail at the staircase was falling off, the room draws were a bit messy but i kids loved the house alot. The pool and the club house was the 'Bomb" looking forward to more visit.
