About This Listing
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.
Upstairs offers, three spacious guest rooms all with spectacular views. One guest room with queen bed contains a TV and balcony and overlooks the city. The second room is very large and contains two king single beds, a sofa and huge balcony. The third room has views of the heathcote valley and a king size bed. These three bedrooms share a full size bathroom with huge bathtub and separate toilet on the upstairs level. There is also a sponge floor mattress suitable for a child if you need an additional bed depending on how many rooms you book.
You have the option of booking one room, or selecting 3 or more guests to book a second bedroom of your choice. For larger parties, and to book the third room, please find our listing for the entire house and a more cost effective booking for groups. When only booking one room there is a possibility another guest may book another room 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.
We are in the process of landscaping the gardens of our huge 8000m2 section. The majority of the areas around the house are complete with a few unfinished spots you may notice around the house.
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.
The large kitchen has everything you need.
The bathroom is right next to the guest bedroom and has two separate toilets.
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.
Safe and peaceful with plenty of nearby restaurants and bars.
Beautiful views of Christchurch and the Alps, close to the beach and many walks in the hills.
A short drive to the beach suburb of sumner.
We are close to Bus 180 (5-10 min walk up and down hill). This will take you all the way to Hornby via riccarton mall. At the bottom of the hill is The purple line (15 min walk). This takes you to the airport or sumner in the other direction. It also stops in the middle of town. It's possible to use bus 180 to get up and down the hill and connect with the purple line. The bus to the port town of Lyttleton is also at the bottom of the hill - no 535. It also takes you to Eastgate mall.
We do recommend travelling by car to make the most of your stay.
It is possible to book with us a private airport collection between 8.30am and 10pm for $80NZ (a taxi for the 45min - 1 hour journey is usually $85 - $100NZ) please ask after making your reservation with us.
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.
We loved everything about our stay. I thought the house was even better than pictured, if that's possible. Jenna and Ben were very accommodating hosts and fun people to talk with. We would absolutely do it all again!
Jenna and Ben were fantastic hosts. Their house was beautiful and clean. They helped us plan our stay in their area by sharing knowledge of local places . We arranged a great breakfast every morning and felt very comfortable in their surroundings. Their home had a wonderful view of downtown Christchurch and the pups were an added plus! We would highly recommend their accommodations!!
Sehr freundliche und hilfsbereite Gastgeber. Das Haus und der Blick über Christchurch sind wunderschön. Würde ich immer wieder buchen.
Jenna and Ben are really lovely and nice hosts! Their house is absolutely beautiful with the best view ever! The bed is very comfortable and cozy and the bathroom has a really nice shower and a Bath tub. We got a good breakfast and could use the kitchen for cooking as well. We enjoyed staying at their home and would definitely recommend it to everyone who is travelling to New Zealand!
The view from almost every room and esp my bedroom is really marvellous. Enjoyed a lot there. Not too far from the city if driving. Plus the weather in CHC is the best in NZ I think. Sunny mostly.
LOVED IT! After a 5 week trip in NZ in hostels this place was a luxurious treat! Jen&Ben are very friendly, even they were both sick during our stay, they had the energy to have some fun talks with us. We wish them all the best and we would absolutly recommand YOU to stay in there house :) Cheers Juliette & Gijs
We had some wonderful days at Jenna and Ben's House. Everything was just perfect: the beautiful house, the perfect view, tasty breakfast and of course Jenna and Ben as caring and relaxed hosts. You can discover Christchurch during the day and relax in the evening with a nice view over the town. One of the best AirBnB experiences we had so far.
