Positively Pure | Lodestars Anthology

An architecturally astounding, off-grid experience that will teach you what it means to unwind in style. It's a strange moment when you realise that you've never seen a shooting star. Perhaps not surprising though - I've been a city dweller my whole life and camping hasn't always been my forte, having done it only once. In Ireland. In autumn. In the pouring rain. But that all changed on my first night...

Southern exposure: my night in a glass house on Banks Peninsula | Stuff.co.nz

The sense of exposure was surprisingly thrilling. I'd been a bit dubious about the idea of spending a night in a cabin made almost entirely of glass: who knew what weirdos could be lurking in the thick bush that surrounds it? The trip from Christchurch did little to quell my fears: a 45-minute drive along long, lonely country roads followed by a steep climb into cloud-covered mountains and a 10-minute...

A look into PurePods: NZ’s secret glass huts | Room5

They say those who live in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones. Neither should those who sleep in PurePods. That’s because a PurePod is essentially a cabin, made entirely of glass. Over the past few years, four PurePods have been built on the South Island, each on their own exclusive property. The location of each cabin is only revealed to guests after booking. Each PurePod is reached...

A Night At A PurePod | Lost in the Haze

Let me whisk you all the way back to New Zealand for a second. And yep, I promise it will be worth it. A wee while ago now (longer than I’d care to admit!) we spent a magical few days in the Kahutara PurePod. I’m pretty open about my obsession with tiny homes (I really, really want to live inside a customised shipping container one day) so for me, this really was living the dream. Have you...

How PurePod luxury glass cabins are helping New Zealand farmers diversify their income | NZ Life & Leisure

A stay at these all-glass cabins on the outskirts of Kaikoura is to step into a magical realm where the world is reframed and time works in mysterious ways. It was just gone midnight. A thunderous roar ringing in her ears, Angela Blunt gripped the doorway and tried to spot her opportunity to surf the bucking floorboards towards her youngest son’s bedroom. In the kitchen, plates became china frisbees....

Watching the grass grow in see-through luxury at Waipara’s Greystone PurePod | Avenues Magazine

By Alastair Paulin, Avenues Magazine Leave the trappings of civilisation behind, relax and drink wine – that's the mantra at Canterbury's latest glass pod in the Waipara Valley. We left the city behind, we left the kids behind, and – as it was midweek – we even left work behind. But it was not enough. We left the car behind and hiked the final half kilometre to the PurePod bach at Greystone...
