Greystone PurePod

Waipara Chalets/Villas/Cottages From $590/night


Check In: 15:00|Check Out: 11:45

An hour north of Christchurch, hidden high above the award-winning Greystone vineyard, right in the heart of the Waipara Valley wine producing region.

With the Teviotdale Hills behind and views up the Waipara Valley across to the Southern Alps, the Greystone PurePod provides a beautiful setting for you to immerse yourself in your own private slice of the New Zealand landscape. And with the glass walls and glass roof, there is absolutely nothing to interrupt your view of the beautiful landscape and night sky.

Your journey to the Greystone PurePod starts as soon as you turn into the Greystone vineyard, and pass by the Cellar Door (feel free to stop for a wine tasting or to pick up a bottle of Chardonnay, Riesling, Pinot Gris, Pinot Noir or Sauvignon Bloc).

The unpaved road winds its way through the vineyard up to the PurePod car parking area - you may even see an occasional flock of sheep in the paddocks between the vines.

From the carpark, follow the 650m walking track as it winds its way through some regenerating native bush to the PurePod.

The PurePod has all the facilities you require including a fabulous shower, flush toilet, crisp linen, cooking and eating equipment including a gas hob and barbecue, tea coffee and milk; as well as an assortment of games, local reference books, a telescope and a whole lot of nothing to do! So sit back, relax in the luxury camp chairs out on the deck, or laze about in the super comfortable bed and watch nature put on a show

"The PurePod was such an incredible experience! I highly recommend it to anyone looking to really enjoy the natural beauty of New Zealand. It is quaint, relaxing and produced exactly the night we were looking for. Sheep baa-ing in the distance, stars overhead and the quiet night surrounded by the vastness of the Southern Island. The grill worked great and all amenities were perfect as well (esp. the camper chairs!). We also stopped in at Greystone for a wine tasting before and they could not have been nicer. Just an overall amazing experience!" Cameron, United States

Cancellation Policy

By completing this booking you confirm:

- you are aware there is a 650m walk from the carpark to the Greystone PurePod and while this only takes 5-10 minutes to walk it does include a stile at the beginning as you cross a fence line and a few steep steps along the way. The track can also get a little slippery following wet weather. Good news for those of you with mobility issues we can provide alternative instructions for this PurePod which will enable you to drive pretty much right up to the PurePod and this is the only PurePod location without steps to access the PurePod. Please note the alternative instructions are only available to guests with diagnosed mobility issues as we aren't able to use the alternative route for every booking (high-use of this alternative track would impact adversely on the operation of the vineyard).

- you are aware PurePods reserves the right to charge a fee to cover unexpected cleaning costs or damage incurred during your stay.

- you are aware should you disregard the stringent no smoking rules a fee of $300 is immediately payable.

- you are aware the maximum occupancy of the PurePod is 2 adults (no pets and no children allowed)
