Overview

About the property

4 Bedrooms 3 Bathrooms, Private Hot Tub, Heated Slate Floors, Outdoor Furniture

Welcome to our beautiful 'Mountain View Paradise' (MVP) SKI IN Chalet. Great for ALL SEASONS!!! 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 try '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 3400 sq.ft, and I can supply a brand new queen mattress, which fits quite nicely in the main floor bedroom which is a very good size if you have 14 guests for an additional charge (See rates for additional guest beyond 12 guest).

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 and it is luxurious home - My family and friends personally enjoy my Chalet during the year and I personally 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 I only want to rent to respectful families and their friends so that you may experience Sun Peaks in a comfortable, beautiful luxurious 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. I have been fortunate.. I guess that I have only had two guests in the past 4 years that did do damage. (Sorry, but this is why had to add this little blurb, because of these 2 guests) Thank you so much to all of my Guests for choosing MVP, and I truly do believe that I have the most AMAZING GUESTS! :) Thank you to all of you!!!! :)

Don't wait - book your dream vacation at Sun Peaks Resort now and live in luxury at MVP!! :)

You will love it! It is a GREAT FAMILY GETAWAY!!! :)

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.

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.

Since I have been renting my home, my guests are always so extremely happy, and the comment I hear over and over again is "WOW, Cathy you put so many personal touches to your home, we feel so welcome and comfortable, your home has surpassed our expectations" That makes me very very happy! The most important thing is that my guests are very happy, and that I am providing a home for them to create amazing memories, so it defiantly puts a big smile on my face and they say that they love my home! I will say it again "I have the most AMAZING guest!! :) "

Spacious and Well Equipped

  • 5 of 5

We had 10 guys stay at MVP for our annual golf trip. Cathy was quick at responding leading up to the trip and we had everything we needed. There were 8 beds so a couple of guys who had to sleep on the couches. Everything was in order and there was plenty of space for everyone. Would definitely book again!

The views, all the amenities, the peace and serenity, the location and the comfy beds!! Just loved our wonderful welcome... such warm touches... made us feel very welcome in her home! This house is amazing and is run by an amazing woman!. Stay here... you will not be disappointed.

Immaculate Vacation Home - Stagette weekend!

  • 5 of 5

This is our 2nd time staying at MVP. We decided to come down May long weekend for my bachelorette weekend. We were greeted by Cathy when we arrived and an awesome wall message welcoming us back! The house is amazing. Love the size of the rooms and the awesome back yard with a sitting area and a hot tub! Lots of room for all of our things. It was a quick walk to the village that we did more than once! Cathy is a great "landlord", I guess you could say, for the weekend. She did not hesitate to assist us when we needed it and answered all of my crazy questions from the time of booking until it was time for us to pack up and head home! We will definately be back.......it's our new BC getaway place!

A great sun peaks experience

  • 5 of 5

We had two families in MVP for a week. The house is spectacular and in immaculate shape. Cathy was welcoming and attentive but discrete. The house offers ski in ski out capability or if you're feeling lazy, the shuttle will pick you up out front and take you to the village in about 5 min. We loved the huge hot tub, the beautiful views and the huge but cozy front room.

Highly recommended.

Exceptional for families and a group of friends

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a 2 week stay at Mountain View Paradise...and it certainly lives up to its name... "Paradise"... We felt at home very quickly...Cathy's home is so spacious... We looked at many other options before booking and none of the other rentals came close to MVP... We were fortunate to spend the first week with our 2 adult daughters and their partners. One daughter got engaged during our fondue dinner at the Sunburst Lodge on the mountain. The next day, we had a celebration dinner at MVP with the groom's family. What a great time we had!!! This was only possible because Cathy's home has so many amenities. The in-laws were staying in a different location but were VERY impressed with our accommodations (how can you not be?)

We spent the second week with 6 of our best friends (they are our second family). It was a complete changeover for us but Cathy took care of it all...The chalet accommodations are exceptional for a large group. Both weeks we used the hot tub on a daily basis...great hot tub!! I could not have imagined staying anywhere else....We travel a lot and use VRBO on a regular basis. MVP has definitely reached the highest level of what we have experienced to date. Anyone who has travel experience, specially with VRBO, can tell you that the owner/management can make a huge difference in your experience...However you can be assured that with Cathy, as the owner, you will get the best care and attention.

We all thought Cathy was the sweetest lady around...so hard working at all aspects of home care and making sure the driveway is cleared of snow (for those staying in the winter). From a practical stand point, MVP is a great location. Skin-in from "Back-in-time" is easily done however the other option "Lint Trap" is very challenging (steep black diamond). Ski-out to Burfield chair is doable but requires a lot of flat "traverse"...a bit of a work out. In any event, you always have the shuttle option...it stops right in front of MVP every half hour starting at 8:35am. (schedule might change with the time of the season). All of us who had the pleasure of experiencing MVP can sincerely say "we will be back to MVP next time we come to visit Sun peaks!!! Cathy ...you're the best!!!!

Great place for 3 families

  • 5 of 5

This was an ideal setup for our three skiing families. Three queen bedrooms and one quad bunk room worked well. Large common area and TV in almost every room meant that we and the kids could separate some. Nice large and new hot tub with daily service. Bit of a huff to lug so many kids to Burfield ski out, but the shuttle comes by every half hour on the 08, and we used it frequently. Great ski in options from Morrissey. Will rent again!
