We booked with Kiwi Motorhomes for the last month of our 2 years in New Zealand. After covid struck and stopped our original travel plans we were a bit sad and then we lost our jobs so with a month left to wait for a flight, and things starting to go back to normal, we decided to hit the road and see the west coast (the only bit we hadn't seen on our original trip) we searched for the right camper to house us for the time period with all of our belongings and we found kiwi Motorhomes. Needless to say we are so grateful that we did!!
We stayed in Jordy, she was a fantastic machine! A dream to drive and she felt like a 5 star hotel. The bedroom was huge and so comfy with ample cupboard space. A seperate shower and toilet on board really made a difference for when we stayed off grid on the freedom sites.
The kitchen was perfect with an oven as well as 3 ring hob so we could make any meal we fancied. The fridge was great and even had a mini freezer inside so I didn't miss out on my ice cream.
The living room space was so spacious and cozy and it made all the difference having the captain seats up front that spun round to add extra chairs to the dining table.
The cab was spacious and well equipped with sat nav, aircon/heating and loads of overhead space. The living area also had a separate heater and water heater all on the main control panel. This was literally the greatest thing ever! Being able to keep warm whilst traveling New Zealand in the winter was a must and I was so grateful to Chris who delivered the van for explaining how the heating system worked as it was a godsend!!
Chris gave us a full tour and detailed rundown of how everything worked which was so helpful and made us feel alot more at ease when it came to dump station runs which actually turned out to be not that bad.
Overall an incredible company to book a camper with I will definitely be going to them again when we return to New Zealand. 100% would recommend!!!
Save up to 70% on campsite fees! Support conservation and experience the natural beauty of NZ. 78 Department of Conservation campsites, one convenient pass.

What and absolute joy!! Our family are often trecking off to different localities for weekends, booking batches and whilst travelling, we’d pass a motorhome or a convoy of them but never given it a second thought, but now where hooked.
Our trips have been solely intent on getting to the destination yet we now realise, thanks to Kiwi Motorhomes, that the ‘journey’ can now be a whole series of wonderful destinations that ‘you’ choose.
Instead of pulling into a crowded auto barn or a busy food mart, you can pull over at a scenic sight you’d always bypassed and soak in the atmosphere in a relaxed fashion without the normal stress and urgency of “getting to the place”.
Our children enjoyed the relaxing travel experience and all the comforts that ‘Muscles’ had to offer which meant our holiday started when we left not when we got there.
We’ve learned that we can see and enjoy more places in the same amount of time that we would usually devote to a ‘Book-a-batch’ arrangement and you have the freedom to go where-ever when-ever.
Sooooo Cooool. Almost as cool as Leon and Varnia who are the nicest people you’ll meet. So warm and accomodating, going out of their way to tailor the comforts to your liking. We love the name and story given to the campers also, giving a sense of travelling with their guardianship (kaitiakitanga) keeping us safe, so ‘Muscles’ felt great to be in. Lol
My wife and I are already planning another trip next month and Kiwi Motorhomes are our choice. Good people with great values and a genuine desire to share joyful family experiences. Thanks so much Leon and Varnia.
Access savings worth hundreds of $$ on Top Ranked NZ Accommodation and Activities for just $1 per day.
Leon & Varnier are lovely to deal with and made the whole process easy. We traveled from Auckland to Taupo, Ohakune, Hawkes Bay, Rotorua, Whakatane, Coromandel and back to Auckland. The motorhome was well maintained and easy to use. We'll definitely book with Kiwi Motorhomes again the next time we hire a motorhome.
There is the odd time in your life when you make a right decision. Hiring a camper from Kiwi Motorhomes was one of those right choices. Leon and Varnier were just great people who couldn’t do enough for us. They were always on the end of a phone for any advice and never made us feel like the total campervan novices we were. We did nearly 2000km with ‘Sasha’, and still wish we had longer together. We intend to reunite with her when we tour the south island this summer.
I goes without saying, we would use their campers again in a heartbeat. Kiwi Motorhomes is in our view a company that deserves to do well.

Fantastic hire! We not only shopped around, we chose on the great attitude and awesome vibe of our hosts Leon and Varnea. Loved it so much, we are looking to book again.
Thank you kiwi motorhomes, they were helping me on my hard time ( For self asolation ). I really appreciate and it was amazing experience with “MAGGIE” , They have been responsive and supportive and they were on call if needed.
I would 100% recommend them and use them again.
Thank you so much 😊
Kiwi motorhomes provided our family with an excellent service from beginning to end. It was reasurring to know that from the off we had their support with any questions we had. This gave us complete piece of mind from the moment we booked.
Our travels coincided with the Covid 19 lockdown and despite the challenges this presented Leon provided support and offered flexibility to meet our needs throughout even stocking our motorhome with food, providing a BBQ and regularly checking in to make sure we were all ok. I would highly recommend Kiwi motorhomes - Thank You!
It's not often I give reviews, but now and again, I find good cause to! Its easy to give a good review of a company when you've had no problems, but a true test of service is how you are treated when things go wrong, and my god on these terms, Kiwi Motorhomes were tested, our holiday ended in a rather abrupt finale in the heat of the covid 19 crisis, and Kiwi Motorhomes came second to nobody, the level of support was just incredible, at a time when we were stranded thousands of miles from the UK, in a foreign country, with all flights cancelled, these guys were simply fantastic, there's not enough characters available in this section to truly cover our experience, but you can see my review in full on Google or Facebook!! If you want THE BEST, book with Kiwi Motorhomes, you'll get the best vehicles, and the best support, stop looking anywhere else, there is no need, trust Leon and the team to take care of everything you need. Take the holiday of a lifetime, with confidence you will be supported all the way. THANKYOU LEON, VARNIER, CHRIS and anybody else in the team, you are all fantastic.

We went to new Zealand and travelled with a motorhome for 19 days. From our experience it was tricky planning the trip as it was jungle when it came to choosing motorhome vehicle and motorhome company. The larger providers have standardized, rather expensive offerings that travelers probably choose out of convenience, unsecure about other options. We instead decided to go with Kiwi motorhomes which we eventually found googling around. It turned out for the best - In short: For a better price they provided us with a top notch motorhome, gave us the best of service and really went to extents to help us optimize our trip. Everything from getting prepared, pickup, service along the way and drop off worked out supersmooth. All in all everything turned out for the best going with Kiwi motorhomes and we would really recommend it to anyone travelling to NZ. We usually do not write reviews but we felt this time that it was the least we could do, as they really made sure we could have our dream trip.
We used Kiwi Motorhomes whilst on a recent holiday to New Zealand and weren't disappointed.
We were picked up from Auckland airport by Leon and introduced to our motorhome (Nate).
Leon and Varnier were fantastic and made sure we knew how everything worked, inside and out, before we set off.
The motorhome was clean and tidy, and we were left some essentials such as tea, coffee, toilet rolls etc which was a nice touch and meant we didn't have to go shopping straight away if we didn't want to.
The motorhome was fully equipped for 6 people, although there were only 4 (adults) of us. There were items such as gas and electric kettle, toaster, plates, cutlery, bedding, towels and more. We also had a satnav (which is essential), a couple of bikes with helmets and outdoor table and chairs which came in very handy.
We had a fantastic time and knew that Leon and Varnier were just at the end of the phone if we had a problem or had forgotten how to use something.
The motorhome was great to drive (automatic) and was also surprisingly good with fuel economy.
There was enough space for us, 4 adults, we used the double bed above the cab and the back double bed, which we left as a bed all the time, and used the table at the front with the drivers seat and passenger seat, which swivel around fully.
We flew back from the south island from Christchurch Airport and met up with Chris who done a final inspection and dropped us off at the Airport.
We all had a fantastic experience and we are hoping to go back soon, when we do we will definitely be using Kiwi Motorhomes again.
For our 6-week trip to New Zealand, we were looking for a comfortable and inexpensive motorhome. From the many offers, we have selected the kiwi motorhomes (Benji), this was a good decision. The whole process from ordering to return was perfect. During the trip we also received weather warnings via the Wahtsapp, when asked they responded and helped immediately. The car was clean, well stocked with very good kitchen equipment including coffee, salt. Get in and drive. We are very satisfied with the Kiwi Motorhomes and can definitely recommend the company. We hope to see you again sometime.
Great service and a very modern and clean camper. Leon, Chris, Kathy and Jamie were very friendly - we even had an overnight stay in the driveway at Jamie & Kathys house in Nelson - wonderful, warm and very friendly people. We were welcomed and treated like friends of the family - fantastic. From inital contact, booking and to drop-off at the airport everything worked like clockwork - and during our trip, Chris and Leon were never more than a whatsapp message away for questions. Kiwi Motorhomes comed highly recommended.
