About Jennifer Miller

The Sand Rabbit was 'butt ugly' when it was purchased nearly ten years ago. The enclosed front porch was removed and is now a lovely outdoor porch with wicker furniture. The upstairs was opened up and totally renovated including a new kitchen, bath and private new balcony. In addition to renovating distressed properties (and when I'm not taking a nap!), I'm a business owner, writer, yoga instructor, social worker and mother of two. I think I need a vacation like the rest of you!

Why Jennifer Miller chose St. Joseph

How many six bedroom houses (divided into two completely self contained units each with their own kitchen, laundry and living area) can you get only one house to Lake Mi for $100.00 per room, per night, in the summer? The house is fully renovated and CHARMING with hand painted floors. Nothing cookie cutter here!

Guestbook comments from the manager

We greatly enjoyed our stay at the Sand Rabbit. The first floor unit was roomy and warm and easily accomodated our family of five. It is in a wonderful location in St. Joseph's we were able to walk to everything. We will definately be back!

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here for our family vacation to Silver Beach. I cannot say enough wonderful things about renting from Jennifer Miller. Jennifer made our vacation stress free and was very accommodating to our family needs. The house was clean and exactly as we had hoped! The location was PERFECT! We were directly across from Silver Beach and an easy walk to the lovely downtown area. This was a fabulous family vacation and working with Jennifer was a delight. We will return for sure, definitely a home away from home!

Family Reunion!

  • 5 of 5
Wonderful place for a graduation reunion! My son graduated from a near by university and the family from all over was able to relax here. Great location for the beach and the wonderful town of St. Jospeh. The house was clean, well stocked and very sweet. Hope to return!

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5
We were at the Sand Rabbit for a working vacation. There is both a dining room table - where we had four computers set up - and a kitchen table, which was very handy since we didn't have to clear the dining table every time, to eat. The rooms are large and beautifully renovated. The beds were very comfortable. The art work on the walls was a treat. Everything was clean. The dog enjoyed the fenced-in back yard. We enjoyed the short distance to the beach. We and the dog enjoyed the beach, which at this time of year was ours alone. The owner was friendly and helpful. We'd recommend it to anyone.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much. I'm delighted to hear how much you enjoyed your stay and glad you liked the house and all the art on the walls. Yeah! Please come back for a "real" vacation (without having to do any work...lol)...Thanks again and looking forward to your return visit.

The perfect solution for our wedding guests!

  • 5 of 5
I rented the Sand Rabbit to accommodate wedding party members and guests as an alternative to hotel stays. From the moment I walked in to set out gifts for my guests, I felt home. The location was excellent, just a few blocks from our reception site. The house was spotless and homey. I loved the themed rooms and painted floors! All my guests gave rave reviews...I couldn't have asked for better accommodations! Jennifer was great to work with and was truly helpful regarding my requests. It was definitely a perfect way to host our guests!! Thank you, Jennifer, I would heartily recommend your property to anybody!

Close to the beach!

  • 3 of 5
Very cute house. Very close to the beach and all that St. Joe has to offer. Very uncomfortable beds. Furniture does not match the pictures on line. We were expecting a leather sectional and a big screen TV. What we got was an old couch with a slip cover and a small flat screen in the downstairs unit. House was very clean but in need of maintenance. No wires for the DVD or VCR players, so on a rainy day the kids could not watch thier movies. Jennifer called on our fiirst day there to welcome us. We had a very good time here but expected a bit more for the money.

Owner's Response: HI Laura,

Glad you liked the house and the location (two houses to the beach!). We actually updated our furniture and need to update our living room photo. We've added a new flat screen TV, a beautiful oriental rug and red chair. Sorry it wasn't to your likely, but the leather sectional was damaged and replaced. Had I known the DVD or VCR wasn't working I would of sent my handyman to fix it. The people staying before you didn't say a word about it (it may have been a simple switch on the wall that needed to be turned on). We did speak over the phone after I learned of your concerns, but it was after you left the house. Based on your concern about the mattresses we will be replacing any mattresses as necessary. Delighted you found the house super clean (I let my cleaning person know and you made her day!)... we strive to have everything in working order during the busy summer season. Glad you had a good time, but sorry you didn't think the house was a good value. At a little less than $100.00 per bedroom, per night you won't find either of the two hotels in downtown St. Joe for anywhere close to that amount.. more like double that amount and it will be even more difficult to find a six bedroom house so close to the beach. We appreciate you renting from us and hope you will give us another chance. Jennifer
