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 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.

"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
