After an unforgettable day on the water, come home and refuel with a meal prepared in the fully equipped kitchen, complete with stainless steel appliances and all the essential culinary accessories. If you’d prefer the smoky barbecue flavor, fire up the gas grill and enjoy dinner al fresco on the expansive deck.

Large living room with stone fireplace. Spacious breakfast and dining rooms.

Short walk to private, party dock just bring your boat(or rent it nearby) and tie it. Swim in the cove's calm water, or relax on the party deck and enjoy the beautiful views. Fish for bass, crappie and catfish from the dock, fishing poles provided. There is convenient access to public boat ramp, and marina to refuel your boat.

Only five miles from the North Georgia Premium outlet mall, 15 minutes from the charming historic town of Dahlonega and the beautiful North Georgia mountains.

Spend a weekend or a month, you'll never want to leave!

Rental Note: June, July & August we rent on a Sat to Sat basis. We will entertain exceptions as they come up.

Special Note: I manage my condo and do all of the rentals myself. I do have my own cleaning crew that watches after Pura Vida and cleans after each guest. My linens are cleaned only for my unit and I change them up a lot. What this means is that my linens have not been put in with a huge group of rentals and moved from unit to unit...... This makes me feel better and if you are picky like me it will you too!!

About Steve

My wife and I purchased this home to be our retirement home in the next 10 years. We love the lake and when this house became available we knew we had to buy it.

Steve purchased this house in 2015

Why Steve chose Lake Lanier

It is so calm and peaceful plus the cove has neighbors but it is super private. Basically, if you don't live there and you end up there, you are lost! Just out in front of cove is a large enough stretch of water for skiing and tubing. Being close to the Georgia mountains as well as shopping was a major plus.

What makes this house unique

2 tier party dock with cabana makes for a great day at the lake. Plenty of shade when needed. Boat slip for tying off is great. And non-motor toys are yours to use.

Great over-sized fire pit is always a huge hit.

Huge kitchen makes it easy to accomandate large gatherings when you want to cook. It is an open floor plan so everyone stays connected in the family room.

Upstairs bunk room gives kids private gaming in the t.v and a little peace and quiet to themselves. They also get their own bath with full shower.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

Steve was an absolute life saver when we needed a last minute Hurricane Irma escape. His response to my inquiry was immediate and he was very accommodating.

The home is spacious, well appointed, and in the perfect location. It's a few minutes from outlet shopping and a Walmart but nestled in a little cul de sac that made you feel you were far from town.

It's also a short drive to Helen and there are plenty of good restaurants to choose from if dining out is your speed.

The lake was quiet and the second story dock was a cool place to hang out and enjoy some family time. The steps are a bit steep and narrow but we were all able to manage!

Would totally book again.

Wonderful luxury home for a family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Steve, the owner has done and outstanding job with this home. All the beds are very comfortable, updated kitchen, nice furniture and very well designed home. We used "boatbound" which is a national boat sharing company and parked at his very well designed dock. Top floor is a wonderful place to read a book and enjoy the lake. Our grandkids cooked "smores" one night at his firepit. Definately a 5 star home. Bill Handley

Perfect family vacation !

  • 5 of 5

We were able to host our entire family at this beautiful lake house which had all the amenities we wanted. The hosts were extremely attentive and responsive to all our needs. We wanted for nothing except maybe an elevator down to the waterfront! Lol. Deep water at pier even with lake being 6 foot below "normal". Fantastic, gorgeous, well-equipped home away from home! We hope to come back soon!

From the time of booking until right through our stay we had a great experience. Steve & Gail were great to work with answering all of our questions leading up to our stay. The house was a perfect place for us to enjoy a week long stay with Friends & Family. The house was fully equipped and certainly exceeded our expectations. We rented a boat and so enjoyed this part of the lake. The BEST part was that everyone who stayed said the same thing...WOW I have never slept so good! Something about the vibe of the house and the beds that we all had the greatest nights of sleep. I would highly recommend this house for groups who are looking to make special memories. Thanks again Steve & Gail for your hospitality!

Beautiful home. Enjoyed the kitchen living area to spend time with the family.

  • 4 of 5

Didn't get the use out of the dock that we thought we would due to the dock and lake being so far away from the house and down a very long staircase.

In addition, the lake in our cove was muddy the whole time we were there. So, it was no very inviting to just jump in.

Found a local public dock not too far away to drive to with the smaller kids and older folks to pick them up to avoid the climb back up to the house.

Beautiful, spacious house with options for everyone

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a stay here, and this property is a fantastic option for anyone looking to stay in the area. It's very close to the main body of Lake Lanier, but it is on a small and quiet portion of the lake, so we really felt like we had the place to ourselves. We went for a college reunion, so it was all adults. With the fire pit, the deck, and a lovely kitchen/living room, there was enough space for everyone to spread out and do what they wanted on vacation. It's a truly beautiful home. Lastly, Steve was a wonderful host and available to respond to any needs we had. It was a pleasure staying here!
