About Kimberly Miller

I am a former 6th grade science teacher, who resigned to care for loved ones. I love the opportunity to meet new people and make your stay wonderful. I love the life in the country come be my neighbor and sit a spell.

Kimberly Miller purchased this house in 2016

Why Kimberly Miller chose Starke

This home was owned by a lovely couple for 29 years who decided to down size several years ago. After being loved by various owners we purchased this house to rent to you in hopes that you will enjoy our slice of country life as much as we do. We live right down the road and have our entire life. I think this is one of the best places on earth to see God's handiwork at its best.

What makes this house unique

This home has beautiful functional barn doors gracing it's walls. Reclaimed fence boards that are almost silver, bring the rustic barn look inside. The beautiful bathrooms with wood look ceramic tile shower surround and rain head shower take relaxing to a whole new level. My favorite room however, is the chicken room which overlooks 40 acres of pasture land sprinkled with brahman cows this room is like stepping into Grandma's house. Custom made soaps made especially for the us along with local jam made just down the road make staying with us a little extra special

Nothing but love 💕

  • 5 of 5

Kim is so welcoming and very communicative; she helped us get to the house when GPS got confused and even let us know when the yard man was coming by. The house is clean, decorated perfectly for country living and exudes relaxation. It’s hard not to relax there. Enjoyed breakfast on the porch watching the cows aimlessly chew their way through the pastures, listening to the morning bird chatter. At night, the country setting boasts a view of the night sky unlike any suburbia. A bonfire under the plethora of stars, among quietly chirping crickets and frogs, a hooting owl in the forest was the perfect ending to a long day. Could not have asked for a better place to stay. Next time, we will plan more time to just relax rather than running around all day everyday to the beaches and such. Thank you so much Kim for a wonderful and inviting stay. We will definitely be coming back!

For those who love the real Florida, in the quiet of the country, The Farm has everything. The house itself is a delight with Kim's decorating expertise evident from very comfortable beds and quilts to a sofa and a Lazy Boy chair you may never want to leave. I loved the huge desk in the corner of the living room, with plenty of room for my computer, books, maps, song books. We cook and appreciated finding everything we needed and more. Look on the wall for the history of the Millers' labour of love in creating such a wonderful place to be peaceful and quietly centred.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I really enjoyed staying at this property! We were here over Christmas and it really felt like home. The owners decorated the house for Christmas and left wood we could use to build a fire in the fireplace. They stopped by to make sure we were comfortable and even made a baby blanket for the newborn we were traveling with! We will stay here again if we’re in Starke or Gainesville. 😊
