Hananui PurePod is nestled amongst native bush behind a predator-proof fence in an eco-sanctuary on the stunning Rakiura Stewart Island, part of the southern-most Dark Sky Reserve. You will have absolutely stunning views northwest across Lee Bay to the highest peak on the island. From beautiful sunsets to kiwi spotting in the evening, star-gazing at night and waking to the sunshine twinkling on the sea below and a gentle chorus of birdsong, this is the perfect setting for you to relax in privacy and tranquillity. 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 even the roof!

You will have absolutely stunning views northwest across Lee Bay to the highest peak on the island. From beautiful sunsets to kiwi spotting in the evening, star-gazing at night and waking to the sunshine twinkling on the sea below and a gentle chorus of birdsong, this is the perfect setting for you to relax in privacy and tranquillity. 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 even the roof! At night you sleep with the Southern Cross and millions of other stars, by day you are surrounded by dramatic natural landscapes. 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. What is the experience like? On a hot day you can pull back the sliding doors on all three glassed sides, turn up the shade on the ceiling blinds and indulge the privacy. If it's cold you are totally insulated, the heating system is keeping you warm but you can see the rain or snow falling all around you, experience the sounds and marvel at nature. Environmentally friendly To build the worlds most environmentally transparent building takes more than simply using glass for roofing and walls. It involves using sustainable energy wherever possible, minimising the use of non-renewable energy sources, using local water and returning the water to the local area just as clean as it came to us. Rainwater that falls on the roof is returned to water the local plants. Waste is cleaned as naturally as possible, organic cleaners are used exclusively. We’re passionate about sharing the best possible experience of Pure New Zealand possible and we’re passionate about keeping New Zealand pure.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Amazing
This is a wonderful location the most breath taking fantastic views, by day the beautiful sea and trees and by night look up at the stars whilst you lay in bed. Very peaceful, we just wanted to relax, enjoy the night sky and this was perfect, we ordered the food package which was outstanding.
