CHRISTCHURCH, NEW ZEALAND, MAGNITUDE 6.3 EARTHQUAKE, 22 FEBRUARY 2011

The house and the whole Lyttelton community suffered substantial damage meaning that it is far from business as usual at the moment. The New Zealand authorities have put in place all necessary engineering surveys and funding for the clear up, demolition of unsafe structures and restoration of saveable structures. Lyttelton and 29, although badly damaged, have both survived. Currently closed for business and not in a position to take reservations for some time the community and the house will be back, open for business and stronger than before.

Lyttelton is a very special place. Lyttelton Harbour is the northern major sea inlet on Banks Peninsula, Canterbury, New Zealand. Banks Peninsula was once a volcanic island and Lyttelton Harbour is now the sea-filled crater of a volcano that erupted more than 11 million years ago.
Lyttelton is isolated from the South’s capital Christchurch, by the rim of the now extinct volcano, but is linked by a road tunnel that gets you to the city centre in just 15 minutes or the international airport in 30 minutes.
Lyttelton offers the visitor spectacular scenery, a fascinating Maori and European history and an abundance of recreational opportunities. In the town you will find an eclectic collection of shops, bars, cafés and restaurants that line Lyttelton’s historic London Street, whilst one block lower is the port waterfront with another range of, shops and attractions.
29, luxury, comfort, convenience.
