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.
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.
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.
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.
