Our unique 4 bedroom log house situated high up in Mt Pleasant provides stunning views of Christchurch and the Southern Alps. A comfortable private room with private balcony and Queen Bed overlooking the city.

The space

Our house is constructed inside and out of large Oregon (Douglas Fir) logs. Irregular sizes with knots and branches make this log house unique - the only one in Christchurch!

The house has uninterrupted beautiful views from the port hills, across the Southern Alps and over the whole of Christchurch City.

Located exclusively at the end of a lane, bordered by an expansive council reserve, and on an 8000m2 section, the house is very private. You will hear no noise from neighbours or traffic.

The house is only 9km from the Central City, 6kms in the opposite direction to Sumner beach, and only 22kms from Christchurch Airport. Closeby are many restaurants and bars, a supermarket and several fantastic walkways all within a few minutes drive from the house.

The house itself offers many social areas including TV and lounge room with two bifold doors opening up to two outdoor areas with beautiful views of the Heathcote Valley. An occasional room with seating, and fire, a sunroom with floor to ceiling glass windows and incredible views of the Southern Alps and Christchurch City. Large entertainers kitchen with gas cooking. These rooms are all located at ground level, along with a guest toilet, and full size laundry for the guests to use.

The bedroom has the best views in the house, and a private balcony. A queen bed looks over the city and to the Southern Alps. It also has a TV, wardrobe and drawers. The upstairs area of the house is private for guests and contains this bedroom, another bedroom and a shared bathroom with large bath and separate toilet. If 3 guests are selected, there is the option to use the second bedroom or use the small foam mattress suitable for a child or teenager.
The second bedroom has views of the heathcote valley and a king size bed.
When only booking one room there is a possibility another guest may book the second bedroom in which case the bathroom would be shared. If you prefer to have the house to yourselves, please let us know.

We offer a full continental breakfast with toasts, spreads and three cereals for guests to help themselves to.

Guest access

You will be sharing our house with us, Ben and Jenna and will feel welcome in using the living area with Sky TV, and dining room with an incredible view. Our bedroom and bathroom is located downstairs.

The large kitchen has everything you need.

There is an additional guest toilet downstairs along with the laundry.

Interaction with guests

We both work Monday to Friday and are home in the mornings and evenings. We are usually in and out on the weekends. Sometimes you may arrive at the house while we are at work which is no problem. We respect our guests privacy and mostly leave you to enjoy your own time, but are readily available to help, show you around and give advice on what to see and do in the area when needed.

Guests are welcome to use the house as their own. We kindly ask that guests do not invite friends to stay or have parties/dinner parties at the house. We also ask guests not to take any of our belongings off the property. The house is on a cliff face, so while we are happy to host children, there is no safe area outside to play unsupervised.

Our host was in touch with us by email as we arrived very late. She was very understanding and left us detailed instructions about how to get into the property and where to find everything. The property description was very good and we had everything we needed. There was an extensive folder of places to visit and lots of information about walks in the local area. The property was very impressive and unique with lovely views from all directions. Breakfast was provided and was very good. Would certainly recommend to other Airbnb users

Jenna and Ben were very hospitable and helpful with travel tips and recommendations for places to visit. The hosts live in a separate downstairs area and we were free to come and go as we wished and make use of all the modern facilities including free wi-fi. The lodgings themselves were excellent with stunning views towards the city. The location is ideal for direct travel to Christchurch or further south to the amazing Banks Peninsula. A car is needed. Would not hesitate to recommend to anyone. Bryan and Elaine Mackie, Edinburgh

Jenna and Ben were great hosts, very friendly and welcoming. We felt very at home and really appreciated their flexibility and understanding with our 10month old to chase after and a 4am departure for our flight. They have a beautiful home with fantastic views. Thank you for your hospitality.

Beautiful and home & a lovely couple. Amazing views, cosy and very clean. Jenna & Ben were perfect hosts that made my sister and I very welcome in their home. The property was close to both town and the super cute village of Sumner. Perfect for relaxing, sightseeing & hiking.

Even though Jenna and Ben were away for the public holiday weekend we felt at home straightaway. Had nice conversations with their other guest and really enjoyed the views from this lovely and unique property. walking around the grounds we are impressed by the amount of work done to the outside. When we did meet Jenna and Ben they were very welcoming whilst giving us privacy. Thank you one again Jenna and Ben.

Ben and I spend most of our time landscaping the garden, going on 4WD trips and travelling.

We are very friendly and easy going and enjoy meeting new people from around the world.
