Our home is quiet, unique, and Alaskan; yet just minutes from civilization!
Three people and two pets comprise our family. Shannon is the artist and Jeff the scientist. Together, we are raising Oliver who helps our distinguished appearance and saps our individual energy for his own gains. How can a 4.5 year old keep going so fast all the time? Otherwise, we have Málaga, our blue heeler pup, and Henryetta, our nuisance of an overweight tabby. We are consummate travelers who never seem to stop seeking the next adventure. Variously, we have lived in Ohio (Shannon), Nevada (both of us, separately), California (Shannon), Texas (Jeff), Washington (Jeff), Florida (twice; where we met), Alabama (temporarily), and now in Alaska (together!). Jeff has visited 43 states and Shannon has seen 39. Oliver is up to almost 2 dozen. We have lived in the United States of America (of course), Germany, and South Korea. Oliver was born in Germany halfway through our time living in Europe. Our favorite country to visit (and potentially retire to) is Spain, specifically Alicante and the Costa Blanca area. Shannon and Jeff have been to over 40 countries (most of them together) and even Oliver has been to five continents and over 30 countries (all before his fifth birthday)! We are always happy to talk about traveling if you want to know more. Our hobbies include raising a toddler and attempting to maintain sanity. We also read quite a bit, paint, woodwork, camp, tinker, and take plenty of photographs.
Why Shannon chose Rabbit Creek
This is Alaskan living at its finest. We live quietly in the woods on 2.06 acres where you can barely see or hear the neighbors yet you are a short 5-10 minute drive to any civilized amenity you could need or want. Located in South Anchorage afforded us a much quicker means of traveling to the Kenai peninsula where we spend a great deal of our time hiking and camping.

Exceeded Expectations! Amazing Owners!
We have traveled for many years and used many properties, this is the first time a property has been better than expected. The owners go out of their way to make you comfortable. We had every amenity, kitchen is so well equipped and organized with the best of everything. Really a great authentic way to stay in Alaska! Thank you
Thank you so much for staying with us, come again soon. We are happy to have been part of your Alaskan adventure.
Best VRBO ever!
This is the best equipped VRBO I’ve ever stayed in. The location was perfect. Close to downtown but remote enough that you felt like you were in “real Alaska.” We had a moose in the backyard the first day. Owners quickly responsive. Breakfast items left for the first day was a nice touch. Highly recommend!!!
Thank you very much for the kind words! We look forward to you staying with us again if you ever find yourselves heading back to Alaska.
Amazing relaxing stay.
We were in town over spring break shopping and enjoy Anchorage. A friend recommended VRBO. This was my first experience and I'm pleasantly surprised. The house was ultra clean and had everything we needed. It was a little out of town, but we were able to see moose grazing in the woods. They were very fast returning out deposit and that is always welcome.
Thanks for letting us stay in your lovely home!
Paul, it was great to host you. You and those you stayed with are welcome back any time. Thank you for the kind words and feedback.
Beautiful, homey cabin with secluded feel
We enjoyed our stay at this cabin. We traveled to Anchorage in October primarily for my husbands job and this cabin felt like home away from home. Well stocked kitchen, with much more than the usual spices and cooking oils. The owners have spent a great deal of effort providing everything imaginable that would be needed, including coffee, hair straightener, first aide care, etc. Our three year old enjoyed the selection of toys in the garage and was highly entertained, which was wonderful. We also enjoyed the list of recommended restaurants and activities. Would definitely recommend this cabin.
Thank you very much for the kind words. Come back to Alaska and see us anytime!
