I chose Kea because it had no extra costs (gps, full insurance, kids seats....), for the diesel heater, for the location of the kids' seats (just behind the cabin and not at the rear) and for the good comments I read. All together it makes Kea very competitive and great value for money.
We got a 6 berth (although booked a 4 berth) and we were given all the necessary explanations, even in Spanish!!!! which made it a lot easier.
The motorhome was great, very easy to drive, very comfortable, really well equipped (there's everything you need: towels, duvets, sheets, cutlery...), with plenty of space to fit all our clothes and more.
We chose the prepaid fuel option so the only thing we had to think about was to empty the waste water tank and the toilet cassette in the drop off.
I would recommend Kea to anyone who doesn't want any hidden charges and wants to enjoy a very comfortable motorhome.
Exemplary service from start to finish from these guys. I did a lot of research before choosing Kea and Sarah Webster from the parent company Thl would happily answer all of my questions. We are a family with three small children so safety and fitting of car seats was a primary concern. But I also like my comforts and the 6 berth Kea was a great place to stay for 10 days.
The large rear windows are fantastic and watching the sun rise in Coromandel whilst we had our breakfast is a sight I'll never forget. We went towards the end of May and the Kea with its diesel heater and great insulation was always toasty whether we were on a powered site or stating off the grid.
I choose Kea because of their zero excess and the fact we didn't need to fill up the gas bottle on return, because we'd pre paid the diesel we just needed to empty the dump tank on dropoff. I managed to scruff the van on a post in a campsite (easily done with such a big truck) - the insurance form filling out on return was made painless thanks to Nelson and Gudrun and because of the zero excess we didn't need to pay anything.
I'd recommend Kea 100% to anyone who likes luxury, good service and doesn't want unexpected costs. You may be able to shave a few dollars off the bill from a different company but I'm positive that once the free child seats, zero excess and free lpg is factored in, the Kea price would best most competition.
Thanks again to Sarah Webster, Nelson and Gudrun. Thanks also to Marlene for the easy picku and detailed explanation of the van.
Oh - and get the Duvalay bedding. Pay the extra, they are so so comfy and makes an already excellent van even more luxurious.
A long wait to pickup the van but was upgraded to a better van for free. Had a problem with starting the van after setting off and after sales support was excellent. Had a mechanic on site at 8am the next morning. All OK.

It is my first trip to New Zealand, marvelous trip and wonderful vehicle. I rented the Kea 4KQ for our honeymoon within 10 days, I miss my motorhome. Lei thank you very much, your Chinese is very kind, also thanks to your colleague, very impressed by your warm and thoughtful service. Kea will be the first brand that I recommend to my friend in the future, and I promise to New Zealand I will be back.

I have been well attended to by Birgitt for the reservation call and Gudrun for the pick up.. the counter staff was so helpful to call the rentals for another car since there was Seven of Us! And the other staff , who stayed up late on 11/8 since we had to pick up the car and back to depot! Again due to some misfortune we were split up and delayed upon returning back to the Depot on Friday and the staff was kind enough to wait till almost closing time and help to call the Cab.. Ms Birgitt was so helpful when we called back on Saturday to inform of a spectacles that was left behind.. which they managed to locate it and was handed over promptly on Sunday before our departure..We would like to extend our heartfelt Appreciation to all these beautiful and kind people at Kea ! Hope to see you again soon.. Sidek Family
Was a very quick show around the campervan so it was difficult to remember how to do everything - but have 24 hour phone line which we have used several times, really did work, they were very helpful.
We love to meet travellers on the road and share in some of the freedom. That's why we invite you to come and stay for free at our chill riverside overnight parking area in the Motueka Valley at the top of the South Island.
