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!! :) "

Cathy has thought of everything.

  • 5 of 5

The MVP is hands down the best large group rental I've ever stayed in. Cathy is an amazing host, the building itself is beautiful, and everything you need and pretty much everything you'd want is supplied.

A group of 14 of us stayed for a weekend in August and couldn't have asked for a better place. Lots of space for socializing, dining, and quiet time. The hot tub and fire were the highlights. We all agree that we would like to stay there again the next time we're in the area.

A Great House and Owner

  • 5 of 5

We were two families of 9 people total and Cathy's house was perfect for our holiday. There was plenty of space for everyone and the house is well equipped. It served as an excellent base for our golf, hiking, biking, swimming and dining adventures in Sun Peaks. Recommended.

Stunning

  • 5 of 5

MVP is the perfect getaway at Sun Peaks. The house is not only gorgeous, it was also clean and in an ideal and convenient location. There was plenty of space for three families of four.

The attention to detail including a comfortable outside space, toys in the bunk room, and an amazing movie collection only added to our stay. Thank you!

Amazing home in the mountains!

  • 5 of 5

A group of us spent 3 nights up in Cathy's MVP Sun Peaks property. The home is located in a beautiful spot in Sun Peaks and is absolutely stunning. Huge windows with lots of light and a beautiful view of the mountains. Easy access to town and the golf course up in Sun Peaks.

The home was well equipt with everything you need while on vacation. Cathy did not miss a single thing. From extra propane tanks for the fire out back to anything you made need in the kitchen....Cathy had it covered.

Everyone in the group has spent a lot of time travelling before and staying in VRBO properties and we all found ourself repeating just how nice Cathy's place was and how well equipt it was!

Would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for a summer/winter getaway!

Great to Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Really great time at Sun Peaks

54-40 concert was excellent, first time for getting ID'd at the beer garden, didn't realize that even old men can look like a teenager! (or at least act like one) must be the mountain air.

Lots of activities and just a great time to "Chill " with friends.

A wonderful get away !

Relaxing in beauty

  • 5 of 5

I started writing this review the morning after we left Sun Peaks, but I got "busy" with the remainder of our vacation and now that we're back home for three days, settling back in. I wanted to write it right away, because the whole family was so impressed with the home and the owner.

My family loved MVP ~ Mountain View Paradise. It is just that, our stay on the mountain was very relaxing. I want to give Cathy the best feedback, because she deserves it.

Cathy has a beautiful home in a wonderful place, and she graciously makes you feel like you're home. She has everything ready for you, the kitchen has everything you may need, plenty of place settings and all the cookware you could need. The pantry is stocked with all the mainstays and even some surprises. The house is very well kept, dishwasher is clean and works well, the laundry room is immaculate with modern appliances, bathrooms and showers are very clean and tidy, and the hot tub is perfect. In fact, the whole house is perfectly clean and comfortable! The lighting throughout the home highlights the architecture, and the double sided fireplace keeps you warm in the great room on a cool mountain evening, or creates such a nice ambiance as you sit down to a meal at the large dining table in the kitchen. The wonderful deck perched on the front of the home completes this mountain retreat.

We highly recommend Cathy's home on the mountain to everyone. She's a real joy, and people like her are what makes VRBO so great.
