About the property

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.

March 25

COMING JUNE 2015:

Feb 25

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 since 2013, and in that time, 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.

Owner's Response: Hi Courtney I am very sorry that I was unable to provide a 5 star experience for you and your family! My apologies. I strive very hard to ensure my guests have a wonderful trouble free stay to create wonderful memories with their friends and families. My sincere apologies that you did not receive a five-star experience. In life there is always room for improvement in everything we do, and your four star review has just affirmed to me that some improvements are required, and that's not a bad thing, because there's always room for improvement in everything we do. So thank you very much Courtney for your review, I will continue to strive to ensure that MVP improves every single year. Thank you Courtney Cheers, Cathy

Truly wonderful.

  • 5 of 5

Well, what can we say that does this place, and Cathy justice? It made for the most wonderful Christmas for our party of 6. It was our first time to Canada and we are desperate to go back asap! Nothing was too much trouble for Cathy, and her dogs, Mac and Cahli were adorable. The home is well equipped with everything you could need and more. There is plenty to keep you amused and the view.....! Simply stunning. Thank you Cathy.

Incredible experience for our Sun Peaks Winter Trips!

  • 5 of 5

Bottom line, Cathy cares about your stay. As a host she is incredible and makes sure that you and your guests have the best experience possible. She provides a top notch experience, location, guidance and amenities. The house is beautiful and the location is perfect. Ski in at the end of day was really nice and to get on the mountain it was a 5 min drive down the hill for us.

We loved having the High Speed Internet access for all our gaming needs. The hot tub was great to come home to after a long day of snowboarding. The full house stereo system with Sonos was awesome and we brought a bluetooth adapter and chromecast audio to hook into the multi source system as well.

It's great to have spices, seasonings and other basic condiments when we arrived for all our baking and cooking needs. Greeted with an MVP glass travel container filled with cookies to bake on our first night there. In addition she provided us with MVP Sun Peaks lanyards which was a nice touch.

Plenty of storage for all our gear and boards. Lots of towels, soap, paper towels, laundry detergent and much more.

My group honestly feels like MVP is a home away from home as we have stayed there 4 times now and each time left looking forward to coming back in the future.

And please do come back again!!! Thank you once again for being such Amazing Guests!!!! :) Cheers, Cathy
