The Pōhue PurePod is just an hours drive from Christchurch, with beautiful views of the historic Port Levy bay, surrounded by rolling hills and magnificent rocky outcrops.

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 – roof and floor too! 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.

About the neighbourhood
The PurePods is designed as a place to relax and re-connect. It is purposely isolated but there are walks around the property to allow you to explore the natural setting. Stretch out on the deck or in the shade nearby and enjoy a complete absence of people and traffic.

If you are feeling a little more active, take a short walk across to the Acropolis rocky outcrop and watch the sunset or for the more active take advantage of the many nearby Banks Peninsula hiking trails. If you are staying for a couple of nights, then perhaps head across to Akaroa to swim with the dolphins or go sea kayaking before returning to the PurePod in the afternoon to relax and take in the views.
Getting around
If you want to explore the wider Banks Peninsula region during your stay, it's best to bring your own vehicle.

How to get there
Airport: Christchurch International Airport: 66.0 km
Pōhue PurePod is just over an hours drive from Christchurch International Airport. 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.

The best option is to self-drive to our secluded and safe car park. You'll be sent directions after you book.

Alternatively, we can provide you with contact details for a door-to-door transfer service from Christchurch Airport. Some guests even choose to arrive by helicopter!
