Travel deals: Designer PurePod baches and romantic Marlborough getaways

Glass act: Book a PurePod

Imagine sleeping in a glass eco-cabin, yet with total privacy — aside from passing birdlife as the sun rises. Less than an hour’s drive north of Christchurch, in the heart of the Waipara Valley, PurePods are located in secret locations only accessible by unsealed roads and 10 to 20-minute picturesque nature walks.

Each features glass sliding doors, an outdoor deck with barbecue, a shower, bathroom, kitchenette and bio-fuel capable heating system — and you’ll sleep in a Queen bed. There is no Wi-Fi, cellphone signal or power plugs — but plenty of books, games, a USB speaker, telescope and map of the stars. A two-night stay is priced from $589pp, twin-share. Add on breakfasts and dinners from $149pp.

Valid for stays between this August7and March 31 next year, book your PurePod experience by September 30.
