Hamish and Rode Abode were a delight to deal with. We booked last minute for a tour of the South Island whilst in New Zealand for our son’s wedding in February. The van was very well equipped drove well. We had an issue with the house battery which Hamish dealt with speedily and efficiently. We even survived Cyclone Gita. I would have no hesitation in using Rode Abode again or in recommending them.

We did a trip to the South Island for 10 days in August 2017, and we highly recommend the company Road Abode.
They had all what we could expect and all what we needed:
- Communication: Excellent Communication from the beginning (quotes), during our trip and to the end, after our holidays.
- Customer service: Excellent response. Always available to help us
- Campervan: In very good condition, very comfortable to drive

We hired a motorhome from Road Abode for three weeks in February 2018, from our first enquiry Hamish could not have been more helpful and accommodating. The pick up and drop off went extremely smoothly, the motorhome was spotlessly clean and the bikes we also hired were brand new and a very good spec. We had a brilliant trip around New Zealand.

We had a great experience with the Road Abode motorhome. Away for a week, we went to stay at Totaranui Campground, Wharariki Beach Campground and The Barn Campground in Maharau. My kids (age 4 and 6) loved the whole trip especially sleeping above the driver's cabin and getting to bed very late...
For me it was the first time to drive such a big motorhome, but it was not a problem and even easier than expected. We had a great personal support from Hamish and he gave us some useful information before the trip and a good introduction on the spot. Pick-up and dropp-off were very easy and the quality of your Mercedes 4 berth motorhome very good.
Thanks again to Hamish!

Had a fantastic experience with the company. My brother and I rented a VW Volkswagen LT35 for around 16 days to tour the NZ South Island. We had the absolute best trip ever, particularly thanks to our awesome self contained motorhome, affectionately know as Moby the great white whale. It was a little tricky to manoeuvre to begin with with neither of us ever having driven a camper of that size before but Hamish at Road Abode was incredible patient and helpful. A few other situations arose with us not being familiar with filling it up with water etc, but Hamish continued to be super accommodating, even taking our calls on Christmas Day (sorry Hamish!) They also allowed us a slightly delayed return of the vehicle which actually saved us a heap of costs sorting accommodation at the last minute. Overall, if you're looking for a no frills campervan experience, great, personalised service with some good people, then Road Abode is perfect for you. Highly recommended!

Thank you!
