About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Sunroom, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 7-9)

Welcome to SUNRISE VISTA! This stunning 2400 sq. ft. custom designed home has breathtaking views of the mountains. Lots of sunlight comes through the large front windows for a bright and relaxing atmosphere. From a distance, check out Northstar's ski conditions. At least once, wake up early and watch the sunrise. It's amazing!

The house has big windows facing the front, back, and side allowing you to enjoy the outdoors while inside sipping your coffee. The great room, dining room, kitchen, all three bedrooms and sunroom have views to the outdoors. Our summer guests have been delighted by the abundance of deer sighting in our backyard viewed from the large windows in the house. The outdoor feel is extended to the master bathroom where the shower and a jetted tub are set in beautiful stonework.

The floor plan is ideal for a gathering of family and friends with a spacious living room and dining room, an open kitchen and expansive front and back decks. With over 2400 sq. ft, there's plenty of space for adults and children to sprawl in comfort.

For the comfort of our guests, we provide high thread count linens and Egyptian cotton towels. The kitchen is stocked with essentials such as spices, tea, sugar, olive oil and more.

In addition, we are mere minutes from the Tahoe Donner Downhill Ski Resort, Cross Country Center and Sled and Tubing Hill. For families with young children, Tahoe Donner Downhill Ski Resort is great for learning, and children under 6 ski FREE!

As our guest, you have access to the Tahoe Donner amenities including the swimming pools, hot tubs, gym, fitness classes, tennis courts, beach at Donner Lake, play structures, and more for a minimal fee.

You can choose to do lots of activities or you can relax on the chaise and enjoy the tranquil beauty of Tahoe Donner from the living room. On a final note, Sunrise Vista is a labor of love. We trust that those who rent it will keep this in mind and will treat it well. It is not a home for large parties or groups.

About Carol Lim

We are a family of four who love outdoor sports. Carol enjoys waterskiing, skiing, volleyball, and biking while Rune is into running, biking, and skiing. The kids enjoy being outdoors as well. They enjoy skiing and sledding in the winter. They love going to the beach and fishing for crawfish in the summer.

Carol Lim purchased this house in 2010

Why Carol Lim chose Lake Tahoe North Shore

Tahoe Donner is such a fun place for our two kids (ages 7 and 10). In the winter, their favorite is sledding in the backyard and skiing at Tahoe Donner or Donner Ski Ranch. In the summer, we enjoy going to the recreation center for a swim in the pool or dip in the tub. Rune enjoys working out in the gym while Carol gets her exercise by dancing in the zumba class.

What makes this house unique

Watching the sunrise from the living room is amazing. The house has big windows facing the front and the back, and it is so peaceful and rejuvenating to sit in the living room and soak in the views. Our summer guests have been delighted by the abundance of deer sighting in our backyard. There's a lot of space in the house; so the kids can play downstairs giving the adults some free time upstairs.

Lovely home in a great location

  • 5 of 5

A great home to rent to enjoy beautiful Lake Tahoe and Donner Lake. Plenty of room for 5 of us. The house was spacious, clean and beautiful. I appreciated that there wasn't any kitschy cabin decor. The front deck is spacious and a lovely place to sit at sunset. The owner was very easy to work with - instructions were straightforward and timely. We'd absolutely come back.

Bright sunny house!

  • 5 of 5

This is a bright, sunny house that's very family friendly. Great backyard for sledding and playing in the snow. Convenient location to the Tahoe Donner slopes. The driveway is very steep so it's easiest to take a running start from the road to get up to the house in the snow.

Amazing house! Well appointed for a family, very comfortable, and beautiful

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful stay and can't wait to come back. The house is very large and the photos don't do it justice. It is beautifully decorated and well appointed, the beds were very comfortable, the linens were good quality and had everything our family of 5 could want or need. there were toys for the kids, plastic plates and cups, a pack n play and a high chair. The view was amazing and overall has a great feel.

Fantastic family rental home!

  • 4 of 5

Thank you to Carol for her wonderful hospitality and an easy rental process. My family and I rented her cabin over the Christmas holiday, and we found the home to be well stocked with thoughtful amenities (loved the heated stone floor!), as well as thoughtful details (I didn't know about snow melt pellets, provided by Carol!). The open layout "great room" of the kitchen and family room allowed us all to cook, hang out and enjoy each other's company. The big wooden dining table and bench was ideal for the family meals. Great stay, we hope to come back again!

Snow in Thanksgiving!

  • 5 of 5

Lovely place, great location. Ideal for two families. Tall ceilings in kitchen/dining/living make it a great room for friends and family time. Tall windows bring in beautiful views together with early morning sunlight.

Close to ski resorts, yet tucked away in a tranquil community.

Well stocked home, plenty of amenities ...

We look forward to being back there ... seems like summer rental would be great too!

A wonderful home

  • 5 of 5

This house is roomy but cozy and great for a group or a couple. The home has everything you could need and is a great place to read or come back to after a day of activities. The kitchen is fully equipped for cooking and there are plenty of plates and glassware. The beds are very comfortable, the water pressure is fantastic and the couches make it hard to go.

There is a great view and lots of friendly deer to greet you in the morning while making coffee.
