About this listing

Our unique 4 bedroom log house situated high up in Mt Pleasant provides stunning views of Christchurch and the Southern Alps. Providing a private room with private balcony and Queen Bed overlooking the city.
Please check our other listing for other bedrooms if this one is booked.

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 views up the Heathcote Valley in the house. It has a very comfortable king size bed. 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 if available or use the small foam mattress suitable for a child or teenager.
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, dining room with an incredible view. Large kitchen with everything you need.

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.

I'm not certain I can adequately describe how incredible my stay with Jenna and Ben was, but I'll try. I had seen this listing on Airbnb a year ago, and found myself needing a place to stay in Christchurch for 6 weeks while working. I was very fortunate to inquire about this listing, as it exceeded every expectation I had. The house is spacious, clean, and has every amenity one could ever need. My bed was incredible comfortable, and I had many a good night's rest. The views are spectacular, looking out over the Port Hills and Christchurch. I enjoyed many hours sitting at the table, or on the lawn, and watching the sun set as the sky lit with colors. And if that's not enough, Jenna and Ben are amazing hosts. We shared dinners, went to food festivals, hung out on the lawn, etc... They really are fantastic folks and I felt very at home. If you are looking at listings, and are reading this review, do yourself a favor and book this one now. It's truly a gem. Jenna, Ben, thanks for welcoming me into your home and being such great hosts. Best of luck in everything and I hope to see you both again soon. Cheers, Jeremy

Great home and superb views. Jenna is very helpful in supplying local information. Everything was more than ready for our arrival, room large and comfortable. We would definitely stay there again if the need arose, and we can recommend without hesitation.

We enjoyed our stay with Jenna & Ben! Great house & view from the mountain. Jenna & Ben are both amazing, nice, generous & great at suggesting where to go & what to see in Christchurch. It was a great pleasure to meet Jenna & Ben.

Very comfortable stay! The loghouse accommodation is extremely spacious, well-furnished and welcoming. The area at Mt Pleasant is lovely and quiet but within easy reach from Christchurch central. Jenna and Ben were great hosts - very engaging. They were there to meet us on arrival and also to farewell us. We had the best kiwi experience - had the best cinnamon buns ever, fish and chips and great wine! We were also very fortunate to be able to experience "Christmas in the Park" event with them as well. Thank you for having us. New Zealand left us wanting so much more, we will be back for our honeymoon at North Islands next year!

Jenna & Ben made us feel very welcome. Their house is amazing with great views. Our room was very comfortable with a small deck overlooking the city views. All amenities were provided including shampoo, and soap. Breakfast was good. A nice selection of cereals, toast, tea, coffee & fruit. I Can highly recommend them and would use this property again in a heartbeat.

Jenna & Ben is a lovely couple. Their house is nice and impressed by the 1st viewing. It looks better than the photos in airbnb. They are very kindly to update our room to their best room which has nice view all day. Jenna and Ben is not only a nice host but they gave us a lot of good guidance to help us know Chrischurch. And their comments are very professional. We do receive the good experiences from them. Also we started to miss their cute small friends already, Hope, Pepo, Chris(this name might be wrong.). For sure, we will definitely live in their nice house in the next time. It is a perfect time to spend with 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.
