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 dazzles with wood panelled vaulted ceilings, beautiful stone hearth, and an open layout. Brilliant sunlight shine through the vast windows with breathtaking views of mountain vistas. From a distance, check out Northstar's ski conditions. At least once, wake up early, watch the sunrise, breathe the fresh mountain air, notice the trees and mountains, truly relax and feel alive. It's amazing!

This special home 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 with views of the pine trees and 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.

Bedding format as follows:

Master Suite: King Bed

Guest Bedroom 1: Queen Bed

Guest Bedroom 2: Twin over full size bunk bed

Sunroom: Futon which converts to a full size bed

To entertain kids of all ages, the house comes with an XBOX 360 Kinect and games, HDTV upstairs and downstairs, WiFi, Alexa, and more. For the younger kids, there are toys, books, videos, a high chair, pack and play, and child carrier.

For summer fun, you'll find golf courses, tennis courts, a full equestrian center, swimming pools, a recreation center with a fully equipped work-out facility, recreation events, day camps, spectacular biking and hiking,and access to the Donner Lake Private Beach and Marina with all its water activities for endless family fun, plus year around heated outdoor pools, spas and sauna, and much more. Check the Tahoe Donner website for more information.

For winter fun, we are situated near the renowned ski resorts of Squaw Valley, Alpine Meadows, Northstar, and Sugar Bowl. 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 Truckee

Tahoe Donner is such a fun place for our two kids (ages 13 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.

Great summer house!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house! It has all the amenities we needed. The kitchen was my favorite! On top that, it was a pleasure communicating with Carol. She was on top of everything. She provided us with all the info we needed before and during our stay. When we left, my son unfortunately forgot some of his games in the house. Upon notifying Carol, she immediately tried to coordinate the return of my son’s games (she did this while being out of the country)! We highly recommend this place!!

Wonderful home for Tahoe vacation

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in this house twice and have enjoyed both stays. The house is perfect for families and is a great location for enjoying Tahoe Donner. The owner recommended sledding at Glacier Way and we had a wonderful day sledding down a large hill. There is a hike to the hill but my small kids managed it just fine. We can''t wait to return again!
