Overview

About the property

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

Welcome to our beautiful MVP 'Mountain View Paradise' Ski-In Chalet. Great for ALL SEASONS!!! Easy ski-in access from Mt Morrisey's 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. MVP 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, as well as 2 love seats, fireplace and tv, 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 on two sectional couches and a large 65" smart TV, and there are even Apple TV's in some of the rooms and Sonos surround sound music throughout the house including in the backyard. There is also heated slate floors in all of the bathrooms and the laundry room 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. MVP is over 3500 sq.ft.

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.

*MVP is luxurious home - Our family and friends personally enjoy the Chalet during the year and we personally take great pride in our home. In order to maintain MVP as a 5 star experience, we will only rent to guests who will treat our home as their own. If you are planning on partying heavily and being disrespectful, please do not rent our 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, beautiful luxurious and cozy setting, as we so often do. And we must say that our Guests have been an absolute pleasure to have, and we are very very grateful that they have chosen MVP to create wonderful memories. We have been very fortunate.. that we have only had two guests in the past 5 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 we truly do believe that we 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 Bjorn Seelig

My name is Dr. Björn Seelig and I am the owner of Mountain View Paradise (MVP).

I am a Veterinarian from Germany and spend most of my time with dairy-cows, sheep and of course with my family. I purchased this beautiful dream home in 2018 from Cathy who is still taking care of "our home“. I am married and have two wonderful children. Before we came to Sun Peaks we visited lots of other places in Canada (Whistler, Banff, Revelstoke ...) but we found Sun Peaks as the perfect place for us to spend lots of time with the family and friends. My family enjoys hiking, skiing, snowmobiling, mountain biking, skating and many other things the outdoors have to offer.

We have shared many special memories here at MVP and at Sun Peaks.

My name is Cathy and I am now the property manager of MVP, after selling it to Bjorn and his family in May of 2018. I originally purchased MVP in May of 2013, and I can honestly say that I have thoroughly enjoyed an amazing 5 years transforming MVP into a beautiful 5 star vacation home for guests from around the world to come and enjoy, and create amazing life time memories during their stay and their holiday at Sun Peaks Resort. As the property manager now, I can say unequivocally that I will maintain a 5 star experience for all guests. I truly do love providing such a wonderful home for guests to stay and enjoy time together with each other. I believe that because our lives have become so busy, it is imperative that we have amazing holidays with family and friends to rejuvenate our lives. Please come and create wonderful, amazing memories with your family and friends at MVP and Sun Peaks Resort, memories you will cherish for a lifetime! :)

Bjorn Seelig purchased this chalet in 2018

Why Bjorn Seelig chose Fairways

Cathy has been renting out MVP since May 2013, and a lot of great things have been happening at MVP since then. Multiple guests are rebooking and returning for another stay, newlywed's are choosing MVP for their honeymoon! WOW! Couples getting engaged right here at MVP! Another WOW! Small wedding receptions! Again WOW! 50th wedding anniversaries! Amazing! Surprise birthday celebrations for the 'Big 50', family reunions, a Celebration for a 70 year old Dad, a group of friends whom are now scattered all over the globe gathered for the big celebration, guys golf getaway, family snowmobile getaway, ladies relaxing weekend, families with the children enjoying running and playing and thrilled to see their cousins again, whom they haven't seen for years, grandparents spending precious time with their grandchildren, guests from as far away as Australia, New Zealand, England, Hong Kong, and the list goes on. All very very exciting warm loving memories with friends and family being formed at MVP. We love to see our guests so happy and enjoying MVP so much. we are very grateful that everyone is so pleased with MVP. I (Cathy) am really excited and looking forward to working hand in hand with Bjorn and his family managing MVP for them while still maintaining the 5 star accommodation our guest have come to expect, and still provide an amazing vacation home for our guests, and therefore our guests can still share the amazing stories that they have created at MVP!! :)

What makes this chalet unique

We fell in love with this home when we 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. we must add here, that time and time again so many of MVP guests keep commenting about the spectacular view of the mountains from the living room's floor to ceiling windows, the just fell in love with it.

Since MVP has been a vacation rental home, the guests are always so extremely happy, and the comment heard over and over again is "WOW, you put so many personal touches to MVP, we feel so welcome and comfortable, the home has surpassed our expectations" The most important thing is that MVP guests are very happy, and that we are providing a home for them to create amazing memories, so it defiantly puts a big smile on our faces and that they say that they love MVP, just feels great! We will say it again "We have the most AMAZING guest!! :) "

A memorable weekend!

  • 5 of 5

Welcome!!...were the words expressed and posted and felt--as we initiated and encountered our first MVP experience. And when we arrived at Sun Peaks...well what can I say??

What a great private setting and what a grand home to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary with our children and grandchildren...all 12 of us under one roof!

Spacious, and so beautifully furnished, and grand, this place has lots of extras and lots of spaces for everyone's needs and wishes...for the young ones there were lots of perfect places for playing hide-and-seek with Grandma, and for Grandma to hide clues for not 1 but 3 treasure hunts for them.

Soon after arriving the young ones checked out every room and found a closet full of toys...out came the car/road mat with the basket of at least 100 little vehicles of all kinds. Later, from another basket our teenage granddaughter, with the help of free wifi and fast internet, put together, almost completely, 6 Lego bionicles. Thanks for the Lego fun!

From the giant pillowed couch in the sunken living room to the beautiful patio area with cozy seating under the huge umbrella when it was sunny, or around the propane fire-pit in the evening, with others enjoying the hot tub with its massaging jets, there was a spot for everyone and for everyone's mood.

The fully equipped kitchen is huge, and has every appliance and gadget you would ever need to cook any meal, and together with the walk-in pantry provides many extras like flour, pancake mix, spices, coffee and tea. Lots of dishes, glasses and stem-ware too-- even champagne glasses for the toast given to us...Cheers!!

A Swiffer and Dyson stick vacuum made clean-up quick and easy.

From the King-size bed to the bunks, the beds are so comfy and the 420 thread-count supima cotton sheets are super-soft and luxurious.

There are plenty of towels and hot water in the bathrooms--nice showers too!

We never even got to watch one movie from the rows and rows of DVD's to choose from-- maybe next time :)

Thank you, Cathy, for providing the perfect setting for such a memorable experience and for giving us a truly beautiful Home Away From Home.

Great retreat

  • 5 of 5

This is a great Chalet to kick back and relax, our party of eight adults enjoyed a great weekend of skiing. The village was aglow with plenty of activities and events to keep all of us busy. After a day on the slopes we enjoyed kicking back and relaxing in the hot tub, watching the final game of the Vancouver Canucks which honored Daniel and Henrick Sadin.

We all look forward to our next visit to MVP

Many thanks to Cathy, Mac, and Cali for being such great Hosts!

14 night stay at MVP Sun Peaks snowboarding

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned to New Zealand after a 14 night stay at MVP Sun Peaks snowboarding with family and friends, ranging in age from 15 yrs to 51 yrs. On arrival at MVP, we were totally blown away by the property. We have booked a lot of properties on-line, and in many cases properties struggle to meet expectations (due mainly to pictures taken with wide angle cameras etc), but we can honestly say that when we walked through the door of MVP, our expectations were well and truly exceeded. The house was larger than we expected, and the furniture, utensils, cooking equipment and chattels were all top notch and in abundance. The house was really clean and tidy and in beautiful condition. It is easy to see that Cathy loves her house with a passion. Driving back from the village to MVP after a dinner out in the evening was out of this world, like returning to something from a fairly tale with all the lights Cathy has put up around her home .... perfect.

We loved the ride in from Morrissey side, and ride out to the Burfield chair, and watched the groomer come down the track right to the house one evening. We even built jumps on the track down, and literally in the back yard to play on on our days off. The village of Sun Peaks is a short pleasant walk, and the village itself is super quaint and friendly, with some cool pubs and eateries. An extra big thanks to Jordan and Claire at Vertigo for the coffees and breakfast burritos we had almost daily.

Cathy is an excellent host and went above and beyond what would normally be expected and was always helpful and really friendly.

The snow we had was awesome, some decent falls through our stay, and crowds are literally non existent.

All in all, we couldn't be more satisfied and the holiday we had at MVP and Sun Peaks will be really hard to beat. MVP is highly recommended by us, and works really well for large groups.

Thanks heaps Cathy for the use of your home, we all loved it.

Amazing Vacation home

  • 5 of 5

This house is everything it says it is and more. Everything is exceptional and the small details that Cathy adds really make you feel welcome. Everything is clean and the kitchen is very well appointed. We cooked everynight and there was everything one could ask for to put on a meal. Make sure you bake the cookies they are incredible.We rented this home for a family winter vacation (7 adults) and everyone is asking when we can come back. For the ski/boarding folks there is a shuttle that picks you up at the bottom of the driveway and drops you at the day lodge and then you can either ski home or take the shuttle back. And of course after a day on the slopes you need to use the hot tub. For those who don't ski or board there is still plenty to offer. Right out the door there you can do a nice walk to the village or put on the snow shoes waiting for you in the garage and off you go. MVP is an amazing property, and Cathy the owner is readily available if you need her and always quick to respond to any questions. I highly recommend this property!

Owner's Response: Hi Cindy It was so wonderful meeting your family! What a great group, it was great seeing that you were able to use the snowshoes and get out there on the trails behind the house and enjoy yourselves! So happy as well to seeing you use MVP's 'Ski-In' and I agree the free bus shuttle every hour stopping right at the bottom of the driveway is great. :) Hoping to see you and your family back again real soon. Thanks so much Cindy Cheers, Cathy

Beautiful spacious house for 3 families!

  • 5 of 5

MVP is a gorgeous house that is fully loaded with everything you need and more. The kitchen is stocked with every appliance you can imagine (slow cooker, toasters, panini, waffle makers, etc) and more pots/pans/glassware/dinnerware than you’ll ever use, this includes the separate bar area which is fantastic.

The bunk room is full of toys for the kids (so don’t need to bring any from home).

We had 3 families stay with 6 kids ranging from age 1 -9...the bedrooms spaced out nicely so we had lots of room and privacy when needed. And hot tub is big and roomy for all.

Location is a little further from the village, but the house makes up for that, plus you are able to ski right into the backyard off one of the blue and/or black runs.

This was our 4th time to sun peaks and first stay at MVP; Cathy was easily the best owner to deal with. She goes over and beyond to ensure your stay is the best, from her contact as soon as you book, to little treats and other warm welcome surprises when you arrive. My husband is a big ufc fan and Cathy was so accommodating and ordered the pay per view for him & the guys which was greatly appreciated.

Highly recommend staying at MVP! Thank you again Cathy!!!!
