HI there,

Yoga instructor, writer, social worker, mother of two kids and one big chocolate lab named, Hershey. Grew up in Michigan and plans to retire in St. Joe. I do my very best to be accommodating and very responsive to inquires and questions.

Nothing cookie cutter about any of my properties. Want something a little different? Something where you can feel comfortable, something fun and whimsical in an awesome location? You found the right place and my pricing is very reasonable. An entire house for the price of one nice hotel room.

Location, location, location. Walk to everything and feel right at home in a historic and charming neighborhood.

PERFECT BEACH GETAWAY

  • 4 of 5
This was our first time to St. Jo, traveling from Chicago. Short drive for an amazing beach getaway. The Sunflower Cottage was perfect for my wife and I and our two young children. Comfortable, well equipped and a fantastic location. The beach and downtown are both within walking distance and the town is packed with great family fun. Jennifer (owner) was great to deal with - and was available for anything. We had a perfect vacation - and will be back.

PERFECT FAMILY HOUSE!

  • 5 of 5
We travel from Az for work and we stayed at the sunflower cottage for 13 weeks. We loved it! The house was so clean on arrival, and well maintained. It's in the best location because we were able to walk downtown and to the beach. Jennifer is so professional and she has such a servant's heart! What a pleasure it was to work with her. We recommend this house!!

VERY CLEAN AND GREAT LOCATION, PERFECT CUTE HOUSE!

  • 5 of 5
We absolutely loved our stay at the sunflower cottage. It was our first time visiting St. Joes and it was the perfect house for the 3 of us to rent out for 4 days. The house was really clean and updated and it was in a great location, nice and easy walk to the beach and downtown! The beds were comfy and they even had a cute play area with toys that my 18 month old loved to play with. We loved sitting out on the front porch as well. Overall it was a great house to rent!!!

THE PERFECT COUPLES GET AWAY

  • 5 of 5
A lovely little home nestled in a sweet quiet neighborhood in one of the most charming towns on the coast of beautiful Lake Michigan. My husband and I enjoyed a wonderful week and this home was the perfect place to call 'home' while we were there. Very comfortable and everything we needed was there. The owner is wonderful to work with, we can't wait until next summer.
