Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday chalet in Fairways - Mountain View Paradise (MVP)

Easy Ski In Access, 4 Bedrooms 3 Bathrooms, Private Hot Tub, Heated Slate Floors

Welcome to our beautiful 'Mountain View Paradise' (MVP) Chalet. Easy ski-in access from Mt Morrisey's new Black Diamond run 'Tumble Dry', or if you would like to just take a nice easy blue run tyr 'Back in Time" and ski right into MVP, and you can also hike up the slight slope in the back yard and then ski-out to the Burfield chairlift. We are Located just an easy 15-20 minute walk to the Sun Peaks Village. My home is a multi level, 4 bedroom 3 bathroom home, and it has been designed with families in mind. The floor to ceiling windows on the main level allow you to enjoy spectacular views of the Mountains. The gourmet kitchen features granite counters, stainless steel appliances and a gas range. With seating for 8 at the dining table and another 3 at the breakfast bar, this is the ideal set-up for family groups to share a meal. Warm up in front of the gas fireplace in the living room with seating for 7 and a large flat-screen TV. There is also heated slate floors for those cool winter days, as well as a wet bar complete with 2 in-built wine fridges. After a full day of mountain activities, come home to relax in your very private hot tub overlooking the mountains. My home is over 3000 sq.ft and can accommodate 12 people maximum.

The lofted cathedral ceilings have big magnificent windows which provide a breath taking view of the beautiful mountains, while relaxing by the fire place with a nice glass of wine or snuggle up with a hot mug of hot chocolate and take in the majestic view of the slopes. Such comfort and beauty you feel like this is your home away from home.

*Everything in my Chalet is top quality - My family and friends personally enjoy my Chalet during the year and we take great pride in my home. In order to maintain my vacation home as a 5 star experience, I will only rent to guests who will treat my home as their own. If you are planning on partying heavily and being disrespectful, please do not rent my vacation home. This is NOT a party house. this is a FAMILY CHALET and we only want to rent to respectful families and their friends so that you may experience Sun Peaks in a comfortable and cozy setting, as we so often do. And I must say my Guests have been an absolute pleasure to have, and I am very very grateful that they have chosen my vacation home to create wonderful memories, Thank you so much to all of my Guests! :).

Don't wait - book your dream vacation now at MVP!! :)

NEWS IN 2015:

May 22

The further development of runs on West Morrisey in time for the 2015-16 winter season will be a top priority for Sun Peaks Resort during the summer months.

By July 1 Sun Peaks will be mobilizing equipment into those areas.”

The intention is to complete the two runs that were started from the bottom up last year. Known internally as Run B and Run C, the new runs are parallel to Static Cling and are expected to offer terrain similar to Static Cling and the other “Laundromat” themed West Morrisey runs — similar to last season’s newly added Lint Trap and Tumble Dry.

“They’ll be Black Diamonds. It’s a classic Morrisey run. A little bit of pitch off the top, flatter in the middle, and steep at the bottom.”

The routes will lead onto the Fairways ski-back and finish on Mountain View Drive alongside existing West Morrisey routes. Therefore you can ski/snowboard home after a great day of hitting the slopes.

We could not wait for June.... So the NEW HotSpring Grandee hot tub is now here!!!!

BRAND NEW HOTSPRING GRANDEE HOT TUB from Parklane Pool & Spa in Kamloops.

HotSpring Grandee spa hot tub features up to 7 different jets, offering different types of massage for various parts of the body. It has the Moto-Massage® DX jet that provides two powerful streams of water that sweep up and down the length of your back – there is nothing else like it. The Rotary Hydromassage jet performs like the fingers of a professional masseuse, with rotating nozzles that soothe your back, neck, calves and wrists. Precision jets work together in a powerful cluster to relieve tension in your back, neck and calves.

HydroStream jets soothe tired muscles with constant streams of flowing water that relieve tension.

Directional Hydromassage jets provide targeted relief to problem areas with easy-to-adjust nozzles.

The ComfortControl® system lets you customize the strength of massage. The SmartJet® system allows you to direct power to the jets you are using, instead of powering all the jets at once.

Alpine Terrain Development

After an extensive snowpack study in our popular Gil’s backcountry area, this legendary alpine terrain will be moved within the ski are boundary and equipped with increased access, and selective glading for some of the deepest turns around. West Morrisey will offer a new face of steep and deep tree skiing, and a few cut runs for a more direct descent.

*Mountain View Paradise (MVP) is located on the West Morrisey side of the resort

Updated Oct 2 2014:

Mountain View Paradise (MVP) Vacation Home is now Ski In/Ski Out. :) Expanded terrain for 'West Morrissey' and 'The Gil's' areas has launched Sun Peaks to Canada's second largest ski area with 4,200 skiable acres. New black diamond ski runs on West Morrissey are quickly emerging and visible now as you enter Sun Peaks. New steep terrain being prepared for new thrills this season on West Morrisey. 'Back in Time' is the green coloured run on the right. As yet unnamed, the run on the left, near the corner of Fairways and Mountain View Drive has been cleared and grubbed.

Updated Oct 9 2014:

Congratulations Sun Peaks.......... Sun Peaks has been shortlisted for two awards in the 2014 World Snow Awards. Sun Peaks has been nominated for Most Improved Resort in North America and also the Eco Award.

Updated Nov 24 2014:

For the second year in a row, Sun Peaks (now second largest resort in Canada) has been awarded the 2nd best overall ski resort in Canada from SBC. Second is #1 for us because their legendary champagne powder, family friendly environment and SHORT line-ups are second to none!!!

About Cathy Robertson

I am the homeowner, and I grew up In Kamloops which is just a short 1 hour drive from the Resort. I purchased this Beautiful Dream Home last year and I have been renting it out for others to share this wonderful home and beautiful resort. Sun Peaks is gorgeous year round. The spring when everything is turning green, the summer with the beautiful sunshine, the magnificent flowers when you go for a hike, the 2 lakes just a 15 minute drive away, the free concerts, it seems like every second weekend there is another free outdoor concert, and oh I have to mention the golf course, right out the front door and across the street is hole #4 of Sun Peaks Golf Course. I just love it. And of course the fall with all of the beautiful colors, and then of course winter, the skiing, snowshoeing, cross country skiing, snowboarding. Those are just a few things that I love about living at Sun Peaks. I really do believe that I own a Vacation Home in Paradise. That is why I guess I call it Mountain View Paradise (MVP) Sun Peaks feels like Paradise to me, and with the view from the living room of the mountains, well, I can say it just doesn't get any better than that.

I bought this home in 2013 because it is snuggled into the mountain side, on a quiet street, and walking to the village everyday and stopping in at one of the many shops for a cup of coffee, or grabbing a piece of pizza at Mountain High Pizza ( the best pizza ever) or sitting down for a nice relaxing lunch, I absolutely love walking down to the village and strolling through it.

Cathy Robertson purchased this chalet in 2013

Why Cathy Robertson chose Sun Peaks

I have been renting my vacation home out for 1 year now, and in that year, a lot of great things have been happening at MVP. Multiple guests are rebooking and returning for another stay, a newlywed couple choosing MVP for their honeymoon! WOW! Two couples getting engaged right here in my vacation home! Another WOW! A small wedding reception! Again WOW! A surprise birthday celebration for the 'Big 50', a family reunion, a Celebration for a 70 year old Dad, a group of friends whom are now scattered all over the globe gathering once a year, guys golf getaway, family snowmobile getaway, ladies relaxing weekend, families with the children enjoying running and playing - thrilled to see their cousins again, whom they haven't seen for a year, grandparents spending precious time with their grandchildren, guests from as far away as Australia, All very very exciting warm loving memories with friends and family being formed at MVP. I love to see my guests so happy and enjoying my vacation home so much. I am very grateful that everyone is so pleased with MVP.

What makes this chalet unique

I fell in love with this home when I realized friends and family could gather in the nice cozy warm living room with stories of their day on the mountain, a cozy blanket, the fire place, a nice glass of wine, or cup of hot chocolate, and look out the magnificent windows and see the beautiful mountains, and share the beautiful sunsets and the wonderful company. I must add here, that time and time again so many of my guests keep commenting to me about the spectacular view of the mountains from the living room's floor to ceiling windows, the just fell in love with it.

Our large group of 10 ladies were extremely impressed with the gorgeous, spacious chalet and the excellent service provided by the owner - who made the rental process a breeze from start to finish. Beautiful views, tastefully decorated, a well-stocked kitchen, comfortable furnishings, great beds and linens...we all appreciated the attention to detail and had an excellent stay. I would recommend this property to any large group for a top notch Sun Peaks experience!

A fantastic weekend in a fantastic home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the MVP home over the Thanksgiving weekend. We were looking for a special spot to have a small family reunion for my mom's 70th birthday. As soon as we arrived we knew that we'd picked the right spot. It's a very impressive home to drive up to.

The home is beautiful and in great shape. It doesn't feel like a rental property at all. It was very clean and had very few signs of wear and tear that these places often have. We had 7 adults and 5 kids staying there and it all worked perfectly. The living room is spectacular, with massive windows looking across the valley to the ski hills on the other side and an amazing bar at the one end containing lots of glasses and it's own little fridge. The kitchen was very well appointed and we were able to fit all 12 of us around the big dining table which was really nice.

There is a new hot tub in the back which was really nice on a cold and snowy October weekend. It's really modern and easily accommodates 6 people.

A neat extra feature was the giant trail map that Cathy has put up on the garage wall. It must be at least 10' x 6' and is a great way to see all of the ski runs. We weren't there to ski, but as a skier I really could appreciate it.

From my initial communications with Cathy, the owner, right through our stay she was wonderful to deal with. I could tell that she really cares about her home and wants to ensure that her guests have a great stay. She lives in the bottom suite of the house but the structure of the house is such that you'd never know she was there. We didn't need anything during our stay, but it was nice to know she was right there if we had any questions or concerns. I've stayed at other places and had things go wrong and it's very difficult to get in touch with the offsite owner to have them deal with it.

Overall, our entire family agreed that this was a perfect spot to spend our weekend together. I would highly recommend this home to anyone looking for a nice getaway in Sun Peaks, both for the home itself and because we really liked dealing with Cathy.

Beautiful property that had everything we needed!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to Sun Peaks and it was the perfect little getaway. MVP was exactly what we had expected and more. The floor to ceiling windows gave us a stunning view of the mountains every morning, and the cozy fire allowed us to relax after a long day on the lake. Cathy was a wonderful host that gave us lots of suggestions of what to do in and around the area. Would definitely recommend this place. Our family is already planning a trip for 2017 back here!

Beautiful and Amazing!!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this property this past weekend for 3 nights.The house was so spacious and beautiful inside and out. The house layout was perfect for a large group. The living room area was spacious, with a bar on the side, a deluxe gourmet kitchen which included any appliance you could think of along with many items in the pantry and fridge. The weather was not that great so the hot tub and the fire pit were great entertainment, along with all the board games and movies provided. The SONOS surround system is a great addition. The house appeared to be sound proof while in the driveway you cannot hear anything that is occurring in the house. We had a large group ranging in age so the group was loud and we were worried neighbors would complain but as far as I know no complaint. The owner of the property, Cathy is very helpful and accomodating. Everything about this house is 4 stars plus. Sun Peaks was very peaceful and quaint. The chairlift is a great option for a cloudy day. Some of the girls in the group tried horseback riding which was another great option. Cathy was very helpful in pointing out activities within Sun Peaks. I would definitely come back. We had zero complaints. The listing information was very accurate regarding location, layout and amenities. The house was clean and well maintained. When we had any questions or issues Cathy was easily accessible via phone and email.

AWESOME first time Sun Peaks Experience!!

  • 5 of 5

Home away from home and Better!

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Greeted and guided by local owner -assisted immediately to the smallest detail - very friendly. Beautiful facilities c/w washer & dryer and even stocked pantry of staples (thank you!)! Couldn't have asked for more. Hot tub was ready and waiting! A Great Place for our Reunion of over Twenty Years. The girls had a great golf game with Cathy, it was awesome to get to know her! Especially liked the opportunity to use the Chair lift then to hike the mountain trails and some even hiked to 'The Top of the World'! I'd like to try the biking next time. Everyone was thrilled with the whole experience at Cathy's home. Will highly recommend Cathy's Mountain Paradise (have already told the kids about it)!

Hi Cathy,

Thank you for one of the best, most relaxing holidays that I've had in years! I had the pleasure of spending 3 days with my 83 yr old mom at the Chalet. She enjoyed it, the hot tub (amazing view), and the total SERENITY! Thank you for the fully loaded kitchen, with all your spotless utensils, and baking tools. We will DEFINITELY will be back! The chair lift ride, and looking at the Alpine Village was amazing! ps...I LOVE Mac!!!! She is a highlight....
