Dear Leon and Remko,

The both of you did a great job with excellent deal from the beginning. Leon,especially provide me with a warmth customer service by being responsive and helpful in answering all the questions before we left home for NZ. I have gone through so many companies surveying the right and affordable yet comfortable before choosing this Company. Of course there will be a lot of question mark as this is not a Company that being chosen by most of the travelers in NZ but we decided to give a try and guess what it was MARVELOUS. I bet we had the best deal with Kiwi Motorhomes.

We had a great 11 days road trip experience and our holiday around South Island was fantastic with Kiwi Motorhomes. Our well equipped camper (Felix) was delivered to us by Remko, a friendly and funny guy in Christchurch with some hiccups initially (the earlier booking was for Muscles) but ended up quite smoothly then!! We love that Remko able to deliver the camper to us at a flexible location and best part was the handover process was simple to our convenience. Our van, Felix is a 6-berth auto-gear. The van itself is quite new and everything was in good order and no issues at all (we drove up to Remarkable Ski Resort in Queenstown and Mount John Observatory in Lake Tekapo with full of confident). She is pretty, unlike other brand she does not have a big logo on her and surprising the van able to accommodate 6 adults with quite comfortable to sleep in! There was some essential items provided to us for free like towel, linen, blanket, salt, pepper, cooking oil, etc and of course a bottle of NZ red wine that Remko suggested us to use it during emergency and indeed we use it during raining and low temperature night in South Island.

We hope to be lucky enough to return to NZ in future at which we will definitely book Kiwi Motorhomes again. We would highly recommend Kiwi Motorhomes to anyone who is looking for a unique NZ travel experience.

A big thanks to the team at Kiwi , Leon and Varnier both could not have been more friendly and accommodating to our needs for our holiday around the north island,and making sure it went smoothly , Leon drove the van down to Wellington to meet us at the airport for the start of our tour ,and we were so delighted to find that the basics such as pepper and salt,oil,teabags,etc. were on board along with a complimentary bottle of a very nice red wine ,and the free extras. both the hand over and hand back was simple and quick.the van was an older model and although showing its age was reliable and a pleasure to drive.
great service and would recommend them .

From start to end we had a fabulous experience with Kiwi Motorhomes. ’Jordy’ is an older 6 berth manual vehicle but he is clean and tidy, well maintained and comes with lots of free extras - Sat TV, DVD player, heater, solar panels, tables, chairs, extra linen, bikes, GPS - all included in the hire. Jordy didn’t miss a beat during our 3280km journey around the South Island. No road was too much for Jordy, and no tight caravan park spot too difficult. Other hires have nothing in the van for you on pickup - Jordy had all the basic essentials to start you off - tea, coffee, loo paper - and even a nice bottle of red. Remko, Leon, Varnier and team are a pleasure to work with - communication, pickup and delivery were a breeze and they bent over backward to suit our circumstances and meet our needs.

This was our second Motorhome trip to NZ and there was no comparison between the two hires - Kiwi Motorhomes wins hands down. We will not choose another company for future hires (believe it or not there is still more of NZ we want to see) and we will highly recommend Kiwi Motorhomes to other Aussie friends planning a Motorhome trip to NZ.

Dear Leon and Varnier,

As a dad with an awesome wife and three beautiful daughters I was anxious that this 10 day South Island trip was magical. I suspected that you might be the company to help make this happen - that your wife has the same name as mine wasn't lost on us either:-).

We could have gone with a number of companies - and when you travel around the country we noticed that plenty of people did choose other companies. Our sense though was that people default to big names, and fancy advertising but we wanted to go with a company that "gets it", that takes joy in the lives of others and dare I say it seems excited by others experiences.

The logistics of pick up and drop off, costs, style of campervan were all great which helps but my family doesn't care about those things. What mattered to us was knowing that as we ventured out we felt able to relax because you both had provided us with a level of comfort and security about our hire and impending journey.

Thank you both because we did indeed have that magical time together as a family - your support of us was very normal to you but would be over and above what others would provide.

I've given you guys a 9 though because if I give a 10 what do you have to aim for - how boring would that be. :-)

We've already recommended you both to our friends.

Thanks.

What a fantastic service Leon & Varnier provide! We are a family of 2 adults with 3 boys under 10yrs who travelled the North Island for 19 days.

Our experience with this company was absolutely positive from the minute I made the initial enquiry. Very responsive and transparent, communication was great.

On arrival in NZ they delivered the van to us at the motel to start our journey. This made things a lot easier for us as you can imagine a family of 5 with bags, stroller, surfboards and toys the least amount of moving our baggage the better!
They went through the van both inside and out with me and my husband. Everything was provided to get us by sheets, pillows, towels and cutlery.
‘Maggie’ the RV served us really well. No problems at all, fuel consumption was good.
We didn’t have the best weather on our stay so that did make things a bit trickier but we survived!
On our last day we arranged to meet Leon to hand back the van and he dropped us to our motel.
All ran very smoothly - we heard so many horror stories of RV hire so this was always at the back of our mind, but these guys really do make you part of the family when dealing with them, would definitely recommend to anyone considering an RV.

We had a great first road trip experience around South Island with Kiwi Motorhomes! We are two couples travelling from Hong Kong to NZ, none of us had any "on the road" experience and Leon was very responsive, helpful and attentive to answering all our questions from the beginning and throughout our trip. We had so much fun travelling that we wanted to extend our rental and Leon was able to accommodate my last minute request swiftly.

On special request, we arranged for pick-up/drop off at Christchurch. Love that Remko was flexible with pick-up/drop off location, so we were able to handover the van at locations of our choosing. Handover process was smooth and informative.

Our van Little Pete is a 5 berth auto-gear. The van itself is quite aged, but everything was in good order during our trip, no issues at all. Little Pete was well equipped with all that we needed: beddings, thick towels, cleaning supplies, GPS, electric heater, cutlery, camping table and charges - all FREE OF CHARGE. We were even given extra duvets and (new) thick blankets for our trips since the autumn temperature suddenly plunged (to below zero) before our arrival, again shows that the kiwi team is super personal and attentive.
Little Pete is a handsome fella, we love that unlike the other big brands, our van didn't have a big logo on him. In fact, Little Pete is featured in many of our stunning photos taken around this beautiful country. Pleasantly surprised that the van is still spacious with 4 adults, and the bed above the drivers seat was quite comfortable to sleep in!

Overall, great experience!
Would recommend Kiwi Motorhomes to everyone. Many friends at home are already asking us about the road trip / camper van experience and we would definitely recommend Leon and Varnier's friendly and kind services. I can't wait to planning my next trip with them myself.

Our holiday on the South Island was fantastic and largely due to Kiwi Motorhomes. The excellent customer service started well before we left home with prompt responses to our myriad of questions. A wonderful welcome from Leon at the airport in Queenstown (in torrential rain) and after a run through and handover we were on our way! "Muscles" was a perfect size of our family of four with two teenage boys, with comfortable beds, good cooking facilities and lots of little extras like tea/coffee/sugar etc. It didn't miss a beat and handled well on the road. We certainly appreciated the free extras that are provided such as bikes, DVDs, camping chairs, games, GPS, road atlas and maps. Also the fact that all the linen and towels are provided within the overall price is excellent, a key difference with some other companies. The 24/7 support is probably what sets this company apart from others. We did need to contact Leon twice and he was always happy to answer our queries immediately, even embarrassing things like the fact that in New Zealand to turn on the power switch at the camping grounds the switch should be UP not down!!

We were sorry to hand Muscles back to Leon in Christchurch as we would have loved to have stayed longer in many of the places we visited. The handover was quick and efficient and then Leon dropped us at the airport ready for our flight home. I would highly recommend Kiwi Motorhomes. 10 out of 10!

Our van Maggie exceeded our expectations for cleanliness, presentation and fuel economy. We had a couple of glitches with the van but Varnier and Leon were always easy to contact. Service for van pickup and drop off was outstanding. We travelled in Maggie for 8 nights with our two children (11 & 13) and each of us slept and travelled comfortably. The linen provided was good quality and freshly laundered. There were plenty of clean towels, t-towels and handy essentials provided. Would certainly recommend Kiwi Motorhomes service and product and trust any advice provided from Leon and Varnier, they are good people.

From start to finish Leon and Varnier were truly amazing. Fantastic communication throughout. By far the best prices for a motorhome in New Zealand and the added extras went a long way especially the bikes which were used a lot and the sat nav daily ! With many other options available too. Muscles was our home for the 2 weeks a handsome mercedes sprinter 6 berth and was a pleasure to drive I was hesitant at first as never driven a motorhome but being automatic made it so easy and we covered some distance for sure ! Would totally recommend to anyone looking for an authentic motorhome experience. The vehicles may not be as new as some other companies but the personal service and overall experience speaks volumes and they are all very well looked after . Leon and Varnier thank you both very much . Andy x

Yes we did find a couple of flaws, but rather than be defensive both Varnia and Leon were so happy to have these pointed out to look at incorporating into Maggie. We fell in love with her, New Zealand and this was made to happen with the friendliness and professionalism from Varnia and Leon. I know it is so hard to incorporate both but they have the knack of doing it even by the provisions to send us on our way rather than have to purchase sugar, tea, coffee etc on our first night. Thank you Kiwi Motor Homes, Varnia and Leon and whoever is in your team. You are the best. Cheryl and Michael

Our family of 6 had a wonderful experience on our recent vacation to NZ. Leon, of Kiwi Motorhomes, met us at the airport with the RV ready to go. His wife, Varnier, also helped my wife get situated with our kids. We put a lot of miles (kilometers) on “Muscles” the Motorhome and it purred right along for the duration.

Yes we did find a couple of flaws, but rather than be defensive both Varnia and Leon were so happy to have these pointed out to look at incorporating into Maggie. We fell in love with her, New Zealand and this was made to happen with the friendliness and professionalism from Varnia and Leon. I know it is so hard to incorporate both but they have the knack of doing it even by the provisions to send us on our way rather than have to purchase sugar, tea, coffee etc on our first night. Thank you Kiwi Motor Homes, Varnia and Leon and whoever is in your team. You are the best. Cheryl and Michael

We rent a 6 pax Campervan for 2 weeks with KiwiMotorHome and we did the best deal of NZ ! Leon and Varnier (owner) were really friendly, reactive on our questions and give us all their best advices to travel.
The Campervan was perfectly well equiped (king size bed + 2 single beds + extra bed, full kitchen accessories, microwave, large bathrooms with toilet and shower separate) we really appreciate the 2 Montain Bikes Bonus witch were include in the price.
We had a great experience discovering the amaizing nature of South Island and We recommanded fully KiwiMotorHome : great value of service !

Our family of 6 had a wonderful experience on our recent vacation to NZ. Leon, of Kiwi Motorhomes, met us at the airport with the RV ready to go. His wife, Varnier, also helped my wife get situated with our kids. We put a lot of miles (kilometers) on “Muscles” the Motorhome and it purred right along for the duration. We will never forget our A+ experience with Muscles and the friendly couple at Kiwi Motorhomes....... and we have lots of photos to prove it! We would highly recommend Leon and Varnier to any family wanting a dependable outfit for their holiday across NZ.
