1 Bedroom , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 2
Waipara, Canterbury Region, South Island
Every day nature puts on a show and you are invited to participate in a way that even when the doors are shut you are not shut out. Your PurePod is total surround glass – that's right – roof and floor too!

Relax, let nature refuel your soul.

PurePods are designed to ensure that you experience nature's show vividly, utilising all of your senses whilst remaining sheltered in luxury. The effect is incredible. The stress of life disappears, the wonder at nature’s power and subtlety reconnects us with ourselves – and our partners.

We were so looking forward to this unusual innovative experience. We were not disappointed. The instruction to locate and walk into the property were clear- and yes you need to walk in in daylight. The pod was classy, interesting and just lovely. We had hoped...More

It's quite a unique location high above the winery. It's always a bit of a juggling act maximising the best view while maintaining 100% seclusion but we think we got the balance about right for that location. Really glad to hear you enjoyed your stay...More

About the neighbourhood
With the Teviotdale Hills behind and views up the Waipara Valley across to the Southern Alps, the Greystone PurePod provides a beautiful setting. The Waipara region is one of New Zealand’s premier wine growing regions. It is full of stunning scenery, award-winning wineries, scenic walkways and a number of great food producers, including world-class black truffles, and olives. There is even a 25km scenic railway using historic steam and diesel locomotives as well as an outdoor art gallery located in a disused quarry. Whether you want to spend a couple of days relaxing at the PurePod itself, or venture out to the nearby walking & cycle trails, or explore the local wineries there is bound to be more than enough to keep you occupied.
Getting around
Take advantage of the nearby Waipara Valley Vineyard Trail, designed for walkers, cyclists and joggers. The trail passes through world class vineyards and historic farms.
