May. 3rd, 2008 @ 04:36 pm Need roommate in the polos!
I'm looking for a roommate to fill one bedroom in a 3 bed/3 bath apartment in the Polos starting in June/July/August 2008.

One of our roommates is moving out due to graduating and we need someone to take his place for the year. Current residents are a senior mechanical engineering major and a psychology major.

We have a boston terrier.

The lease is a full year lease from August 2008 to July 2009.

You get the only walk in closet in the apartment, your own bathroom, and the largest room. You will need to have your own bedroom furniture, we have everything else.

Conveniently located on multiple bus routes with great access to campus. (I ride the 9 or 35 to campus everyday without problems).

Your share of rent is 370$ plus utilities and cable/internet split 3 ways, which comes to a total of $410-$460 depending on how much AC we use.

Email moooink@ufl.edu or reply here if you're interested!

Apr. 11th, 2008 @ 05:37 pm Apartment Hunting

I just found out I have been accepted in my grad program at UF.  I’m beyond excited but now the tough part is trying to find some place to live without going to Gainesville to look most likely.  In the past when I’ve been down there I looked at Campus Lodge. As of now this is my top choice to live at. I was wondering if anybody on here knew anything about the Lodge. I might also be looking at Lexington Crossing.

 I just want to live in an apartment where I have my own bedroom and bathroom. Also having a washer and drying in my room is pretty important. So if there are any other places you can recommend.

 My first class is online so I don’t need to be in Gainesville until June 30. So it would be even better if I could move into an apartment then, or even July 1 and stay in that same room for the school year.

Thank you so much for all the advice!

Mar. 25th, 2008 @ 06:30 pm Summer Sublease
Hi Everyone,

My roommate and I are going away for the summer and we want to sublease our place. It's in Mount Vernon Apartments (those big white brick buildings on Archer and 23rd)just off campus. I've lived here all year and it's just amazing. The maintenance and management are so nice and always around. One time my sink wasn't working for a day, and the management bought my roommate and I dinner at any restaurant in town. We went to Chopstix and ate so much sushi we ran up a $60 bill. They paid it no questions asked. I just think they aren't as bogus as some of the bigger places. If you are interested, there are details below. It's $400 a month, or best offer, and we are flexible with payments.

This beautiful 2 bedroom, 1.5 bath, 1,000 sqft townhouse
No Towing EVER!
Tons of Storage space
Walk in closets
Full Kitchen
Pet friendly with animal-loving neighbors

Feb. 12th, 2008 @ 03:46 pm For Grove Villas Residents
I'll be taping fliers on your door tonight. But for anyone who wants an "advance" copy here you go:

On Friday, February 8, my husband and I were robbed. Two men broke into our apartment here at the Grove Villas and took most of our electronics, money, and jewelry. Luckily, our cats were not harmed nor were they even let out of the apartment. While we are grateful that neither our animals nor we were hurt, we do feel a sense of violation – people broke into our apartment and wrecked our sense of security.

On Saturday, the two men slipped back into our complex and tried one more time to rob our apartment. My husband was home at the time and chased the two men away. Except that they did not actually leave the complex just ran to the other side. When the police showed up, he was able to chase the men into Linton Oaks. At this time we do not know whether or not these men were caught.

Three other apartments have also been broken into and robbed. One other apartment was robbed on Friday. Because apartments in our complex have been robbed four times (not to mention the number of auto break-ins I’ve heard about), I think it’s important that we as a tiny community should keep an eye out for each other. If you are interested in starting a Neighborhood Watch program just for The Grove Villas, please contact me, Wendi Miller, at wldmiller@gmail.com.  We would work with our sheriff’s department and each other to keep our complex safe. There is no cost to join, just a willingness to learn how to protect yourself and help your neighbors.

Sliding glass doors are easy to break into. Don’t forget to put the safety pegs in your door. Put down 2x4s, sawed off broom handles, or heavy dowels in the sliding door track to prevent the door from being open. Make it hard for someone to break in. Lock your car doors. Keep your valuables locked up and hidden. Close your blinds when you’re not at home. Enlist your neighbors to keep a watch while you’re gone and then return the favor when they are gone.

Recognizing Suspicious Activity

BE ALERT. Anything that seems slightly “out of place” or is occurring at an unusual time of day could be criminal activity. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO APPREHEND A PERSON COMMITTING A CRIME OR TO INVESTIGATE A SUSPICIOUS ACTIVITY. Call 911, and do not worry about being embarrassed if your suspicions prove to be unfounded. Law enforcement officers would rather investigate than be called when it is too late. Obviously, not every stranger who comes into a neighborhood is a criminal. Occasionally, however, criminals disguise themselves as these workers; therefore, it is important to be alert to the activities of all nonresidents. Law enforcement officials should be called to investigate persons in the following circumstances, who may be suspects in the crimes indicated:

    Going door to door in a residential area, especially if one or more goes to rear of residence or loiters in front of an unoccupied house (burglary); (This is what happened to us!)

    Heavy traffic to and from a residence, particularly if it occurs on a daily basis (drug dealing, vice or fence operation);

    Screaming (rape or assault);

    Loitering around or peering into cars, especially in parking lots or on streets (car theft);

    Offering items for sale at a very low price (trying to sell stolen property);

    Loitering or driving through a neighborhood several times or appearing as delivery person with a wrong address (burglary).

Get to know our property manager and maintenance people. Introduce yourself so they know you and you know them. Plus it’s always nice to know the people that work hard to keep our community maintained. Contact our property manager to notify her if you have any broken locks, door jams that look as if they have been forced, or if you need any extra security on your sliding glass doors. Tell them when the gate is broken. Tell them if you find holes in the fence (that’s how our guys were getting in!) Don’t be afraid to communicate with our property management. The management can’t help us if they don’t know something is broken. Let’s all work together to keep The Grove Villas a safe and comfortable place to live!

Jan. 22nd, 2008 @ 02:16 pm 3/2 apartment for rent for only $1029 month near UF
Looking for an apartment? :)

Pinetree Gardens on 20th Ave (off 34th) has a 3 bedroom 2 bath apartment for rent for only $1029. The floor plan is pretty cool; it has the living room and dining room seperately. The kitchen has a garbage disposal, dishwasher, and ice maker in the freezer - and the cabinets are actual beveled wood, not that flimsy wood paneling. The master bedroom has two closets. The bathrooms are pretty big too. The whole place is 975 sq feet.

All apartments come with an alarm.

Utilities aren't included, sorry :( 

The landscaping is nice, and it's full of wildlife (not moose or anything, just birds and squirrels).  24-hour laundry facility, and it uses smart cards, not change; the whole complex is small and quiet.

If you're interested, you can call Pinetree Gardens at 352.376.4002 or email me at acar.soner at gmail.com. I work for Pinetree and wanted to post this apartment because it's the only one left :)

Just make sure to let them know that you heard this from Soner Acar.

With an approved co-signer/guarantor, we'll waive the deposit and application fee, and you get half off the reservation fee.

Sorry for the huge amount of info. Hope to hear from some of you soon. :)

I know everyone hates these questions. I've searched the apartment Web sites, checked with Apartment Hunters and picked up all the apartment finder books I could get my hands on. I've lived in the same place for 5 years so I'm just trying to gather all the info I can on the subject.

My husband and I are looking for a place that is very pet-friendly (think big grass areas for the dog), at least 2br/2ba, is kind of close to campus (but we'd really like to avoid 62nd and 20th - too much traffic), has a washer and dryer IN THE UNIT and is less than $900/month. If possible, we'd also like to have a place that is pretty quiet.

LJers, does such a place exist??

I've found loads of apartments that almost meet those requirements. We'd also be interested in renting a house if we could find one that fit those requirements.

Thanks for your help!!
