About Julie Skiver Stanton

David and I are both in technology. We don't have human children, but we do have a kitty named Sloane who keeps us very entertained.

Julie Skiver Stanton purchased this house in 2013

Why Julie Skiver Stanton chose Grand Haven

David grew up in Grand Haven and graduated in the class of '89. We've been visiting friends and family in the area over the summer for several years, when we decided we wanted to have a place we could call our own to share with family.

What makes this house unique

We fell in love with the open feel mixed with the historic features of this home.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This house was the perfect vacation rental! Julie is great at communication from the get go and contacted us a few weeks before and a few days before to answer any questions. Bottom line... This. House. Is. Amazing! It's an adorable old farm house but with all the modern touches and decor. More importantly this house has s fantastic back yard with a pool and a hot tub. The lake was really cold while we were there in the end of June and so we had a pool party with family in town for a wedding. You can easily walk downtown from this house too. Julie was able to answer texts quickly if we had any questions. I have stayed at other rental properties and bed and breakfasts in the downtown area and I know the next time I come to grand haven I want to stay here again. Thanks!

Another great visit

  • 5 of 5

2nd year at the Relaxin Rabbit and it was as good as the first. House is beautiful and the pool in the backyard is great for the kids and adults.

Easy walk to downtown or the waterfront. Owners are very easy to work with and quick to respond to any issues.

Will definitely be back again next summer!!

Relaxing Stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the Relaxing Rabbit. Stayed with my wife, parents and 2 year old daughter. All of us absolutely loved spending time in the pool. Location is excellent and an easy walk to downtown Grand Haven or the beach...both are approximately 6 blocks. House is beautiful and had all of the items one would need. Julie (owner) was also very easy to work with and very quick to respond. Overall, I highly recommend and I look forward to staying again.

So relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

This was TH e perfect getaway for our family! This home comes equipped with everything needed for fun and relaxation. We easily cooked all meals here, the kitchen was well stocked. With The pool and hot tub on site we barely needed to leave the premise for entertainment. We took advantage of the Sonos system throughout the house and outside at the pool and cabana, this was a real nice added touch! We also enjoyed smores at the fire pit. Just down the street is a beautiful playground our kids enjoyed. And of course not to mention all there is to do in downtown grand haven and the beach which is just a few blocks away! Cannot say enough good things about the property. There is no grill onsite but this is literally the only thing i can think of that was not available. The owners were great to deal with and provides very timely responses to questions, etc, prior to booking. Would highly recommend the relaxin rabbit!

Relaxin Rabbit

  • 5 of 5

What a perfect place for a vacation! The house is beautifully decorated and fully stocked with everything you could need. The saltwater pool and hot tub in the back yard were awesome. The kids never wanted to leave the house because they wanted to swim all day. The fire pit next to the pool was the perfect way to end the day and the kids enjoyed making s'mores. Dealing with the owner (Julie) was also very pleasant and she was so quick to respond and even checked on us while we were there to make sure everything was perfect.

Overall, I would highly recommend the Relaxin Rabbit. I can't wait to go back!!

Owner's Response: We're new to renting and were concerned about how we'd find things upon return. We had no need to worry with these guys. They were extremely respectful of our requests for checkout and even went a little beyond by helping us out with laundry before they left! I would love to have guests like this in our home again!
