A good campervan but a bit old.
Decent experience in our Esprit campervan, which has seen its best years though. Just make sure you check your tyres and the oil before you leave from Christchurch since the service partners of Kiwi Autohomes forgot it in our case, which caused a busted tyre throughout the trip, which the team got fixed for us in Queenstown though promptly after I put on the spare tyre.
Save up to 70% on campsite fees! Support conservation and experience the natural beauty of NZ. 99 Department of Conservation campsites, one convenient pass.
It couldn't be better. Anything you need is taken care of. We were thoroughly delighted to have secured our motorhome for four months touring of New Zealand with Kiwi Autohomes. We needed new wiper blades and we got them immediately replaced and taken care of through Kiwi Autohomes. We highly recommend using this top notch company.
A small company, where you feel taken care of. A bit of an old campervan, but it seems like it is quality that they do not build anymore.
Access savings worth hundreds of $$ on Top Ranked NZ Accommodation and Activities for just $1 per day.
I recently hired a home for nine days whilst on a holiday driving around New Zealand,
While the experienced was everything we expected the service provided by Keiran at kiwi motor whines was nothing short of perfect, he is genuine very friendly and you can feel every part of the family owned business in his business dealings, he even posted lost items back to us in Sydney. I highly recommend dealing with this small and caring business over any large corporate organisations.

Little more attention to pre-prep and ensuring all shipshape before handing keys over.
We had a fantastic experience with Kiwi Autohomes and highly recommend them. A big thanks to all the team at the Auckland depot for their help in making our first family holiday- 2 adults, 2 children (4 and 10 months)- so enjoyable! Keran gave very good advice about which van to hire (the Concord) prior to our trip and answered all my queries very promptly. We also greatly appreciated the free shuttle to, and from the airport. On collecting our van, John showed us everything we needed to know about the van together with lots of maps and information about the North Island. The van was fully equipped with everything we needed for our trip and we had no problems driving it. We were really pleased we chose Kiwi Autohomes for our holiday- they are a great example of a real family business with good customer service at a highly competitive price.
Many thanks from the Graham family!

My wife and I are from Australia and we hired an Esprit for 15 days. We flew into Christchurch and a driver was waiting as we exited Customs, which was very impressive and more than we were expecting! The staff in Christchurch was very helpful in getting us set-up and ready to go in the van. Both of us shared the driving and it didn’t prove difficult at all. We had planned our route carefully and stayed at campgrounds and DOC parks, and the van was very easy to use in both. We also hired a Kruze unit which the staff arranged at our request and this was absolutely fantastic as our GPS and on-board tour-guide. We would thoroughly recommend you get one to guide you through NZ. The van was very comfortable and was great value-for-money compared with other quotes we had received beforehand. We were a little nervous going with a company that we only knew from the internet, but all our dealings leading up to and through the entire trip were fine and we would definitely use this company again if we were to do another trip. We found them very business-like and providing you are prepared to act the same way, I don’t think you will have any problems at all. Our trip was very enjoyable and I can thoroughly recommend Kiwi Autohomes who played such a vital part in that. Because the van didn’t cause any concern, we were able to concentrate on enjoying our holiday! We hope you enjoy your trip too. New Zealand is indeed a very beautiful place.
Friendly, personal service and a fully equipped van (Riviera) in as new condition for a very good price. We researched vans extensively before going for this one: perfect seating/bedding arrangement (though passenger seats not that comfy for adults as quite upright and window in passenger area a bit high for small children so bring/buy/rent booster seats), diesel central heating and solar panels for battery recharging (so no need to be plugged in at campgrounds, even in the winter) and even a TV/DVD and an oven. Everything can be controlled/monitored from inside - eg no going out to turn off/on the gas as in other models and two gas bottles so you never run out. The decor is tasteful and the layout could not be improved. The VW Crafter has an energetic and economical engine with 6 speed gearbox and is very easy to drive once you get used to the size of the vehicle. I honestly think you would be hard to get better than this company and this vehicle. Highly recommended.
PS: Department of Conservation (www.doc.govt.nz) and Auckland Regional Council (www.arc.govt.nz) have excellent clean, safe overnight parking spots.
bsolutely, 100% EXCELLENT service from start to finish. Keran was an absolute pleasure and Roz and Ali in Chch were so extremely friendly and easy to deal with.
Our 6 Berth Riviera was immaculate and extremely comfortable. Heater was a little temperamental on 2 occasions but we managed to sort it out by restarting it and running the engine for a couple of minutes. Had a weird issue with water heater not working so after speaking to Keran, we sorted it out really quickly and had no trouble at all.
All facilities onboard were awesome. The only thing I'd suggest to make it more comfortable (especially for 3 or more people) would be a larger pot and a new frying pan, but then I love my cooking so that's just me being fussy. :)
Big draw card for this hire was that we could add additional tyre and windscreen insurance at only $5 per day as well as the bond being a credit card imprint instead of a $7000 deduction like some companies wanted to charge - seriously?? What are those people thinking??
I'd like to thank the entire crew for all their help and friendly service. You guys were amazing and we will DEFINITELY be keen to hire from you again on our next camper trip.
Thank you Kiwi Autohomes for the best NZ motorhome experience ever.
Due to the unfortunate recent earthquakes in the Christchurch region we had initially planned to postpone our trip but we were persuade by Keran to come anyway as he informed us that the damage was really restricted to the Christchurch CBD only. We were so glad that we heeded his advice as we were able to travel the roads of the South Island in very uncongested traffic.
We have rented motor homes from three different companies in the past years and without any doubt of contradiction we found Kiwi Autohomes by far the best. We hired the 6 berth Riveria for just the two of us as we love room to move. The VW van was immaculate and incredibly easy to manage. It’s a reasonably big van and if I had any criticism it would be to request that a reversing camera be installed. Still, my wife didn’t mind too much jumping out and being my guide. We had only one problem with the van and that was that the refrigerator wasn’t working. The motor ran but it never got cold. A quick phone call to Alison resulted in the problem being rectified in Dunedin the next day. It needed re-gassing. Wow, such friendly staff. Always so helpful and especially contactable at all times.
If you plan to also tour NZ with Kiwi Autohomes I strongly suggest that he get yourselves a copy of the New Zealand Department of Conservation camp site booklets. Most of their camping sites are situated in the most pristine and sometimes isolated places. All for a few dollars a night. Normally no facilities at these locations but what the heck, you’re in a fully self-contained home on wheels.
Do yourself, and your wallet a favour on your next NZ motorhome trip. Contact Kiwi Autohomes.
Keran has been fantastic to help me organizing my trip from France. He answered my emails very quickly, maximum 1 day. He proposes help to organize the ferry and he is very open to different options.
Ali & Roz were waiting for us in Christchurch and they welcomed us very warmly. The camper was very clean and ready: full of water, sheets...It also has a safe.
I returned the camper a sunday and Keran was waiting for us in Auckland. Taxi to transfer from the hotel to the airport is included.
I did not rate 10 because the heater did not work all the time: It first worked well but one morning we wake up in the cold.
The engine of the Riviera is very good and it's very easy to drive.
Well, I'm very happy having chosen Kiwi Autohomes.
Enjoy your trip
