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!
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!
Location, location, location!
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!
Very nice property with a great backyard and just two blocks from the beach. The dog enjoyed both running around the backyard and walking next to the beach, and the rooms were nice. The balcony and the porch were an easy place to relax and congregate as well. I would recommend to Jennifer to supply a little more toilet paper and to make the jump in providing linens. The place is great and i would recommend it!
Lots of positives with this property. We rented it for a group of guests on a wedding weekend. The split units weren't entirely convenient but worked well enough for the few days we stayed. Enough beds for 4 couples and 3 singles. Lots of room to hang out as a group on either level. Very walkable to downtown St. Joe and the beach area. Would recommend this for large groups and multiple families. Longer stays would see more benefit than we even did on a weekend.
This is a very charming house, nicely located very near, but not right on the beach. Very convenient for downtown. Everything you could reasonably want is provided. The living/dining is huge, and easily accommodated our two sons and families. Spotlessly clean and cute decor. Jennifer is very nice and easy to work with. My only caveat is that one bedroom is extremely small, really not big enough for the queen size bed that was in it, which might bother some people, although our son and wife did manage just fine. All agreed that they would stay here again!
Our family would absolutely recommend this property for a nice quiet enjoying time at St. Joes. The location is fabulous everything is as stated in listing . This will be the 6th year we have rented. Our grandkids look forward to it every year and there even getting older. The restaurant's are all in walking distance and we always have to do a late night walk to the beach with ice cream on the way back . Our oldest granddaughter just committed this last visit at the age of 9 " I don't think these people know how much they are blessed to be able to live here all the time " I agree You will enjoy ..... I guarantee it. In the 6 years we have been coming there was one instance where we needed service done and they sent someone out immediately ..excellent service.

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!
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!
