In just half an hour from Timaru, nestled into the northern end of the Hunters Hills, you will find your Mt Nimrod luxury pods.

Experience the excitement of camping without having to compromise on comfort.

Unplug your phone and sink into a steaming wood-fired hot tub under an abundance of stars or toast marshmallows over the crackling fire.

Nestled into a small hillside overlooking native bush, with panoramic views to distant farmland and mountain vistas, the Nimrod Pods are restful, romantic and quirky.  It is a private space dedicated to your stay with cosy 'off-the-grid' pod cabins set in an idyllic spot.  You can stop, relax and reset.  Mt Nimrod has got 'it'.  Wake to the morning chorus of birdsong, sit and listen to the stream, breathe the fresh country air.

Chillax ... unplug ... unwind ... relax

We have worked hard to create a quintessential New Zealand experience for Kiwis and foreign tourists alike.  

A stay at Mt Nimrod combines a little bit of adventure, a quietly spectacular location, and a decent dose of southern hospitality.

Whether it is a stay-cation, a getaway from it all, or a trip of a lifetime - you will have a special and unforgettable experience.

What other people have to say ...

We’ll be back! A fantastic experience. Communication was excellent, Vicki met us and showed us everything we needed to know. The barbecue box is certainly worth getting if you are there for a couple of nights. Food, nibbles, etc were outstanding. All the comforts of home while sitting in idyllic surrounds, listening to the native birds and the creek. The hot tub is fantastic and crawling into a super comfortable warm bed was bliss.
