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.

NEWS IN 2015:
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!!!!
The fella's were here today with the crane and flew the hot tub over the house, and installed it :) !! We are VERY EXCITED for the new hot tub and outdoor furniture!!!! :) :) Check out the pictures on our Facebook Page:
COMING JUNE 2015:
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.

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!!!
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.

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.
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.

*Note from Owner: This is a 5 star review posted on for our vacation home on Allura Direct: Property #3328
MVP was beautiful and wonderful for our group! We skied right in to the home at the end of the day and enjoyed the sound system and hot tub. Would definitely recommend for your vacation!
We had the most amazing time at MVP, it made for a magical Christmas for us all. There were 6 of us (2 couples & 2 teenagers) and MVP was perfect for us - both practical and homely.
The bedrooms are all a great size, with excellent walk in dressing rooms and plenty of bathrooms. The living space is fantastic - the kitchen has everything you could need (and more) and there's huge dining area where we could all eat together. The lounge is amazing - we spent many happy hours in front of the fire watching the snow fall, there's plenty of seating for a large group to be together and we made very good use of the bar area with the wine fridges! The floor to ceiling windows in the lounge and the vaulted ceiling are incredible with the most beautiful view of the mountains. We probably used the hot tub every day after skiing, all 6 of us fitted comfortably and if you get the right spot you have a mountain view from here too! There are plenty of books, DVDs and board games to use, wifi is excellent and the sonos sound system a bonus.
We drove into Sun Peaks each day to ski, its a 5 min drive, but the bus stop is only at the end of the road. We would often walk into the village on an afternoon / evening, its a lovely walk along the village trail.
Cathy is the icing on the cake at MVP, she was so helpful and friendly during our booking process and it was a pleasure to get to know her during our stay. Cathy goes above and beyond to welcome you to Sun Peaks and to her home, nothing is too much trouble. Mac and Cahli are the most gorgeous dogs too and they love to play; we have some lovely memories of chatting to Cathy and playing with Mac and Cahli on a morning as we packed up the car with our skis. We were all very sad to leave, we'd be back tomorrow if we could - thank you for making our stay so special
We enjoyed this chalet over New Years (December 28 - January 2, 2016) It was perfect, had all the amenities we needed and enough space for all to be able to enjoy comfortably. My kids really liked the kids bunk room already having some toys and a TV to watch movies not out in the common space. Allowing us to keep up with the world jr hockey tournament ;) in the kitchen area... and not interrupting with the ladies visiting in the family room area..which both btw had large flat screen TV'S.... That's how much space there is! The hot tub is basically brand new, and has a maintenance guy come by daily to ensure chemicals are where there needed to be at (cleanliness is important!!) The ski in ski out aspect was nice, depending on ski ability you'll have an easy or not so easy time getting back to the chalet, (getting to burfield chair is easy, its coming back that would prove to be more challenging) My kids and i took the daily 30 min shuttle(stops infront of the chalet!) mostly for this reason. Skiing was also fantastic!!! Cant beat Sunpeaks :)
We loved this place so much that re-booked the day we arrived back home, definitely looking forward to new years 2017 at MVP!
Cathy was a very kind, considerate and generous host. And the MVP looks just like described, even better. Nice and clean. The view is great. I highly recommend this house.
If you are looking for a place to stay for up to 12 people - you need to stay here!! Everything was exactly as advertised.
Cathy, the owner, answered all of my questions in a quick and professional way and was very easy to work with.
While we were there, Cathy was always available to contact, if needed.
We did not eat out because the kitchen has everything you need and more.
The chalet had lots of room and everyone was very comfortable.
The pride that Cathy has for this place shines through not only in her beautiful smile, but in how well it is maintained and how clean it was upon arrival.
The views were amazing, the hot tub was fantastic and we all had such a fun time!!
We will definitely be coming back =)
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!
