Tiny House of Glass – Would You Live in a Glass House Like This?

Tiny House of Glass - Would You Live in a Glass House Like This

The point of a vacation is to escape our day to day lives, experience a different area, and sometimes get quality family time that we miss when we are working. We leave the sights and sounds of our city or town behind to experience something new and different; however, most us swap out one city for another and wind up with a similar experience.

A PurePod, on the other hand, is a truly unique and private experience based in New Zealand. It is a tiny house made of glass, placed in a remote location, and crafted with eco-friendly technology. Here you will have all of your necessities provided.

Safety and security are just as much of a priority as privacy. There are three locations to choose from and each one gives a stunning view, and an opportunity to explore your outdoor surroundings.

To those of you who are afraid this vacation may be too rustic, think again! The glass used for the floor, ceiling, and walls makes the tiny house feel much larger, and the rich natural beauty outside adds an extravagance to the venue. The Purepod also uses eco-friendly technology that ensures clean water and waste management. This means no bath houses or out houses! Maybe some of you are concerned about the vulnerability of a remote area, but in New Zealand there are no large animals or snakes to act as prey. There is no “roughing it” in a Purepod.

A quote from some couple who stayed in one:

“As we approached our PurePod, we could not believe our next 24 hours would be spent in our own isolated paradise, totally immersed in nature in this incredibly innovative eco-luxury glass chalet. We could hardly contain our excitement at our new find, not knowing whether to spend our time inside or out – in the end it was apparent that it really didn’t matter which we settled for because this was an experience where the outside world met the inside one.” – Derek & Emma

Where do you see your next vacation? On a crowded beach, a crowded city, or in a beautiful setting with the one(s) you love? Turn off your television, put away the phone, and escape to a Purepod for the luxurious relaxation that dream vacations are made of!
