Kahutara PurePod

Kaikoura District Chalets/Villas/Cottages From $590/night


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

20 minutes inland from Kaikōura (2.5 hours north of Christchurch), located in the midst of a beautifully isolated sheep farm high above the Kahutara River with magical views of the mighty Seaward Kaikōura Mountain Range.

Driving into the Kahutara PurePod carpark is the start of your unique PurePod adventure as you ford small streams on your way to the secure carpark near the farmhouse. Leave your large luggage items in your locked car (it will be safe) then follow the 950m walking track past the sheep in the nearby paddocks, through groves of manuka & kanuka trees and past a wetland area on your way up 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 cooktop and barbeque, 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.

"Completely magical!! This was the most amazing place I have ever been!!! Words can't explain what an incredible experience it is....pure bliss! The pod is so luxurious and has everything you need and the view and peacefulness is just amazing!! I can't wait to come back!" Ellen & Michael, Australia

Cancellation Policy

By completing this booking you confirm:

- you are aware there is a 950m walk from the carpark to the Kahutara PurePod which will take you about 15 minutes as you walk past paddocks through a grove of kanuka trees on a farm track lined with trees past a wetland area before the final gentle climb up to the PurePod.

- 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)

With the remote locations of the PurePods late cancellations can be tricky for us to fill at short notice as most of our guests tend to book well in advance of their stay (with many of our guests planning the rest of their itinerary around their PurePod experience). However we know despite your best intentions sometimes your plans can change so we have done our best to be as flexible as possible.

You can amend or cancel your booking at absolutely no charge up to 14 days before your reserved stay – so if your itinerary changes or you decide you prefer a different PurePod location please let us know asap and we will process the reservation change for you immediately. If you need to cancel your reservation and it’s between 14 and 7 days of your reserved stay we’ll refund you 50%
