About the property

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

Welcome to my beautiful 'Mountain View Paradise' (MVP) '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. 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, 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. 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. My home 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.

*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 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 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 Fairways

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!! :) "

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!!!!

The house looks amazing in the pictures and even better when you are there.

  • 5 of 5

We were 2 families on a skiing holiday from Australia. We chose to ski Sun Peaks because of MVP. Cathy and MVP helped us have an amazing time in Sun Peaks which none of us wanted to leave. From the moment we walked through the front door we all knew we had chosen the best house for our stay. 7 nights wasn't long enough and we hope to return again summer or winter. Cathy was just terrific with her correspondence and information regarding every little detail about the village and the house. Cathy has made it her passion to provide the best stay possible for anyone visiting Sun Peaks and we would highly recommend her house for any holiday in Sun Peaks.

Incredible home for family gatherings. Perfect set up with all the amenities and beautiful views.

  • 5 of 5

We love this home, have stayed here before and will book again. Cathy has done an amazing job at catering to her guests and showcasing all that Sun Peaks has to offer. MVP has everything you need. Beautiful home in the perfect setting. Great layout for family and gatherings. Five nights wasn’t quite enough. Guess we’ll have to return.
