About Janee and Shawn Medved

Shawn and Janee are local real estate professionals who built and live in their dream home here at Bear Creek Rd. With the kids off to college they rent the home from time to time to share their great home while away travelling.

Janee and Shawn Medved purchased this villa in 2001

Why Janee and Shawn Medved chose The Bay Area

Location is everything. This home is a few minutes from downtown Los Gatos and the hustle and bustle of Silicon Valley! The beautiful Villa feels a million miles away with the peaceful views and its setting in the hills that backs up to 1000 acres of open space hiking trails.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for sharing your home, it was the perfect place to spend the holiday and enjoy being together! The house is so comfortable and the setting is beautiful.

Best wishes for 2014

Best vacation ever.

  • 5 of 5

Three generations of our family enjoyed the most wonderful vacation at Shawn and Janee's home. We loved the way the living area just flowed into their outdoor space which could not have been more beautiful. Evenings around the fire pit provided hours of family bonding. Early morning risers were greeted with sunrise over the hills and the whirring of hummingbirds at flower stalks. There was aesthetic joys indoors and out. We particularly appreciated how Shawn and Janee made us feel like guests rather than just renters. They were instantly responsive to any questions that we had. Book a vacation at the "House of Medved". You will not be disappointed!

This place was AMAZING!!! Beautiful house, very clean and the owners were awesome to work with. We were there in December but got some nice weather and used the hot tub almost every night and enjoyed many relaxed hours by the pool during the day. Made our stay so wonderful and felt like we were vacationing in a resort but it also felt like home.

Fantastic home!

  • 5 of 5

This home was an amazing place for me and my family. We loved the privacy with the Santa Cruz mountains in the backyard. The quick 5 minute drive to get into town (Los Gatos). The pool that was hard to get out of. It was all such a special experience that we encourage anyone to stay here. You will not be disappointed!

We will be back!
