The Greystone PurePod is set high above the award-winning Greystone vineyard, less than an hour north of Christchurch, right in the heart of the Waipara Valley wine producing region. 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 reconnect...The Greystone PurePod is set high above the award-winning Greystone vineyard, less than an hour north of Christchurch, right in the heart of the Waipara Valley wine producing region.

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 its 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.More

About the neighbourhood
With the Teviotdale Hills behind and views up the Waipara Valley across to the Southern Alps, the Greystone PurePod provides a beautiful setting. The Waipara region is one of New Zealand’s premier wine growing regions. It is full of stunning scenery, award-winning wineries, scenic walkways and a number of great food producers, including world-class black truffles, and olives. There is even a 25km scenic railway using historic steam and diesel locomotives as well as an outdoor art gallery located in a disused quarry. Whether you want to spend a couple of days relaxing at the PurePod itself, or venture out to the nearby walking & cycle trails, or explore the local wineries there is bound to be more than enough to keep you occupied.
Getting around
Take advantage of the nearby Waipara Valley Vineyard Trail, designed for walkers, cyclists and joggers. The trail passes through world class vineyards and historic farms.
