Pōhue PurePod

Banks Peninsula District Farmstay From $590/night


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

An hours drive from Christchurch, with beautiful views of the historic Port Levy bay, surrounded by rolling hills and magnificent rocky outcrops.

Your journey to the Pōhue PurePod starts with a scenic drive around Banks Peninsula past Charteris Bay and Diamond Harbour, then up over hill above Purau, before turning off the main road into the secure carparking area.

Park your car in the secure carpark, leaving your large luggage locked safely in your vehicle

At the carpark, leave your large luggage items in your locked car (it will be safe), then follow the 1.2km walking track up to the PurePod. It will take you around 25 minutes, or a little longer depending on your fitness level and how many times you stop to take photos of the beautiful views. If you would prefer a shorter walk (only 5 minutes), then the Korimako PurePod may be a better option for you.

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.

"Thanks for everything! We love the food and were impressed by the amount of effort you put into preparing everything. Everything was thought of, from the information about the farm to the fun games, to our sheep friends waking us up in the morning! Oh year, and the view, that goes without saying that it was spectacular!" Aaron, USA

Cancellation Policy

By completing this booking you confirm:

- you are aware there is a 1.2km walk from the carpark to the Pōhue PurePod and while most of the track is at a gentle incline overall you will be climbing around 140m in elevation so for those of us not as fit as we used to be you will find yourself puffing a little towards the top. There are also two stiles to climb over as the track passes over the fence line in two places and following wet weather some parts of the track can be a little muddy and slippery. Allow around 25 minutes for this walk or a little longer depending on your fitness level and how many photo stops you will want to make as the views are stunning. There is an alternative (and slightly shorter) track that can be used during bad weather (info on this option will be supplied to you if heavy rain or snow is forecast for your stay).

- 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)

Amendments and Cancellations:

You can amend or cancel your booking with no extra charge up to 14 days before your reserved stay. If you need to cancel your reservation and it is between 14 and 7 days of your reserved stay we will refund you 50%.
If COVID-19 restrictions prevent you from travelling to your PurePod experience we will be happy to waive our normal notice period so you can postpone or cancel your stay.
A credit card processing fee of NZD20.00 may also apply to cancellations.
Any refunds will be made to the same credit card you used to confirm the booking.
