Nestled up the Lyttelton hills in the Black Kiwi, you can enjoy the sights and sounds of harbour vessels and local bird life from your private balcony overlooking the historic port and township.

The Black Kiwi is a private two bedroom guest apartment. The larger bedroom, looking out over the township and harbour, includes a Balinese double bed and a casual seating area. The second bedroom has the option of a California king bed or two singles . The compact kitchenette is equipped with fridge, microwave, toaster, panini maker, jug, French press and provisions for a continental breakfast. A private courtyard offers a large gas barbecue with 2 side burners. The 80's glam bathroom has a separate toilet, two sinks, a double shower and a spa bath with a view.

Only 20 minutes from Christchurch, Lyttelton is home to a community of nearly 3,000. Quirky shops and award winning restaurants, cafés and pubs can be found along the main street. We're also equipped with a supermarket, organic vegetarian wholefood shop and liquor store, but no petrol station.

Every Saturday the vibrant Lyttelton Farmers Market fills London Street with artisan food makers, local growers, musicians, arts & crafters and second hand traders attracting regular enthusiasts and visitors.

Catch local music at the Wunderbar and Civil & Naval, theatre at the Loons Lyttelton Arts Factory and art exhibitions at 50 Works and Tin Palace Art Galleries.

Explore the enticing harbour by ferry, cruise, tug, fishing boat, kayak or a swim in the bays dotted round the harbour.

Lyttelton's Port Hills are full of wonderful walking tracks including one just metres from the Black Kiwi. The oldest and most well known track in Canterbury, the Bridle Path, is the route the first European settlers took to Christchurch after landing in Lyttelton in 1850. On a clear day the summit offers views over Lyttelton Harbour, Christchurch, the Canterbury Plains, the Kaikouras and the Southern Alps.

    We would definitely give this beautiful property a 5 star rating! The view is fabulous & we really enjoyed the spa! We also loved being in Lyttleton rather than Christchurch proper. Not far from town but close to Governor’s Bay and the harbor. Sasha couldn’t be more friendly & helpful. We would definitely recommend Black Kiwi to friends & family.

  • This was a great spot to stay

    This was a great spot to stay. It worked for our family - the kids were able to go exploring on the trail which starts a few doors down from the house and walk down to the local park while we kicked back with a wine on the balcony. Fantastic views plus unique and cozy feel to the place. Far nicer than staying right in Christchurch city but easy access to all that Christchurch and Banks Peninsula has to offer.

    Great location with stunning views of the Lyttleton Port and environs which made elaxing in bed and soaking up the outlook true replenishment for the soul. Then there are the spa bath and "giant" shower... these took relaxing in style to a new level. The kitchen is well appointed and the library full of interesting reads. To top it all off Sasha was such a delightful host, with an interesting life story and very knowledgeable and helpful on the area and it's activities.
