About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 4.5 Baths, (Sleeps 12)

Enjoy relaxed living on a bluff above Lake Tahoe. Nestled in a hollow out of the prevailing wind, every room in this home looks out over the lake, with views across Crystal Bay Point and along the beautiful east shore. Be amazed by every mood the lake has to show, from the sun line rising on the Eastern Sierra to spectacular full moon nights which can be enjoyed from the private hot tub on the deck. Each room is tastefully decorated and the beds have high thread count linens, down comforters, and lots of soft pillows.

Our open floor plan has a master suite with queen bed upstairs off the living room/great room. The remaining bedrooms (second master suite with queen bed, and two queen bedrooms) are downstairs off the family room. We have a wonderful wood stove in the family room that heats the whole house and firewood is provided. The attached apartment has 1 queen bed in the bedroom with interior access to the apartment from the main house, as well as from the garage.

With 3500 sq. ft. of total living space there is room for everyone. There's a two car garage and plenty of off street parking. Enjoy High Speed Internet/Wi-Fi and Cable TV through out the home. We are located just one block from the lake, close to ski areas and casinos, Garwoods and 7-Eleven are just down the road.

About Dave Jones

We were very lucky to find Tahoe at a young age. We fell in love and were married, raised three kids who now have pursued careers outside of the Tahoe basin. While we have loved this home and lived in this home we have found that it is time to share it with others. You will find our place to be a comfortable, quiet space, perched on a bluff away from the prevailing winds. Be sure to watch the sunline rise on the eastern Sierra opposite us until evening arrives. Our home has hosted many family gatherings so we know that whatever your event is you will be comfortable and cozy, together but not crowded,

Dave Jones purchased this house in 2004

What makes this house unique

Our house is centrally located with ski areas located to the east and west of us as well as the best beaches only 10 minutes away. We have walking and biking trails that leave right from our house.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Amazing property with incomparable views of Lake Tahoe!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay here and will definitely be back! The view of the lake is truly breathtaking! There was plenty of room and with a floor plan that provided both privacy and space for gathering. Very clean and a lot of attention to detail. The owner was very gracious and easy to work with.

Thanks, Sherri!

Pictures don't do the view justice; it's spectacular. Home is clean, functional, and has tons of space. Great place for families to get together. Would definitely stay again.

Rented this property for my groomsmen on my wedding weekend. They all loved it. Hot tub on the balcony provided stellar views and a great way to wake up every morning. Would 100% rent again.

Amazing house!

  • 5 of 5

We had the best week with our family - 7 adults and one 8 month old baby. The house has the most incredible views, the kitchen is fully stocked - we all love to cook so took advantage of the great kitchen. The layout worked perfectly for our family as everyone had their own space. Dave and Janna were very responsive. We hope to return as we can't think of a better option in Lake Tahoe.

Absolutely perfect for a larger family (or extended family)! BEAUTIFUL view!

  • 5 of 5

Dave & Janna’s house is just as pictured and described; it was an absolutely PERFECT place for 11 of us plus a dog to vacation together for a week. Family from Germany, Pennsylvania, Kansas and California (ages 1-87) had plenty of space for a variety of activities and the bathrooms were perfect for our needs.

The view is unbeatable!! Working in the kitchen (FULLY stocked with dishes, pans and even quite a few spices and condiments) with the beautiful lake view made cooking a real treat! (They even furnished stainless steel travel mugs for those early morning coffee drinkers to enjoy out on the deck.)

The “apartment” (actually located just 4 steps up from the family room to another level in the house) with the availability of a door for privacy and noise reduction was PERFECT for us grandparents to sleep with our two granddaughters, ages 1 & 5. (So, those early-to-bed and early-to-rise(rs) didn’t bother anyone else in the rest of the house.) The apartment kitchen allowed us to keep milk and snacks for the little ones to have while waiting for everyone else to get up, and the TV helped with their entertainment. The house even came complete with a Pack ‘n Play and a high chair!

The location was great for accessing various beaches but nicely tucked away out of the mainstream traffic.

We could not have asked for anything better. Dave & Janna were responsive to our questions, the location was perfect, the view was amazing, and we had all our family (4 generations) with us. An absolutely PERFECT week! Thank you, Dave and Janna, for making it all possible.

Such a lovely home and great for families

  • 5 of 5

We totally enjoyed our stay so much so I booked for next year before we even left! The house is incredibly comfortable with just fantastic views. Dave was super helpful and responsive; very easy to work with. And the location can't be beat with a short ride to the best north shore beaches! A really fabulous trip and a pretty fabulous home. Thank you!
