The Pods

Dotted throughout Te Wepu’s 30ha of working farmland and bush are three sleeping pod sites. Each site has two pods; a dedicated sleeping pod which sleeps two and each has a spectacular view of the Onawe Peninsula and French Farm Bay.

Each one has its own private setting including wood fired hot tub (emptied, cleaned and refreshed after each guest), fire pit, an eco-friendly waterless (and odourless) Bioloo, camping facilities including a gas BBQ, and delicious fresh spring water. The other pod is your utility pod which includes a composting bio loo, a high quality chilly bin, changing area with towels and bathrobes for your hot tub experience. 

The pods sites have been strategically positioned out of sight and sound from each other. 

Solar power ensures you have lighting in the Pod as well as the ability to charge phones.

There is no vehicle access to the Pods apart from the Bococks’ 4X4 Kubota (known as Donald) so you can choose to either:

  • Have yourselves and your gear delivered to your Pod door by your hosts, or
  • Send your gear up in the 4x4 and you can hike up. The hiking track takes about 20-30 minutes. It begins at the carpark, alongside the home of our resident Morepork. It takes you through a Rhododendron dell and a Walnut grove, alongside the Te Wepu stream, and finishes with a short climb through farmland to your Pod. Banks Peninsula boasts a glorious micro-climate and, in the heat of summer, the hot tubs make pretty awesome cold tubs too!

Included in your nightly price ($385 for one night or $325 for two or $300 for 3) are:

  • the 5 minute drive to and from your Pod (if required)
  • a comfortable bed
  • luxurious linen
  • bath robes and towels
  • camping facilities, including gas BBQ and high quality chilly bin.
  • A solar shower is at all the Pods and can be filled and heating upon request.
  • fire pit
  • wood-fed hot tub 
  • a light breakfast (and a few other essentials – getting away from it all doesn’t mean you have to go without a cuppa!)
