Hamish was so good to deal with and all the arrangements went 100% to plan. The Motor Home was very comfortable and went without any hitches.
A great way to see New Zealand and hope to do another trip the same way. Thanks Abode Motor Homes!

Roadabode provided us with a fantastic motor home for our week long trip.
Hamish gave us fantastic customer service, airport pickup and drop off, excellent explanation of the camper functions before we hit the road.
We had a great time, and wouldn't hesitate to hire from roadabode for our next trip.

We hired a motorhome for 8 days from the 3rd April having had difficulty finding any suitable options because it was out of season and we were able to secure a 6 berth for three of us and we drove via Blenheim to Kaikoura to kayak and whale watch before setting off across to Hanmer Springs for a day relaxing in beautiful sunshine before venturing across the Lewis Pass to Reefton and then Pancake rocks on the west coat. We then headed north staying over night on route before staying two nights at Abel Tasman National Park taking two boat trips up the coast and hiking along the coastal paths amongst terrific scenery, beaches, bays and bush before returning to Nelson. Hamish was really helpful prior to and after our trip particularly in catering for our tight timetable and recommended stopovers and our sat nav was invaluable. It was helpful to know that we could contact him at any time.The bedding was great as was the internal equipment. We were kindly dropped off at the Bus Station to catch our inter city bus to Picton. Up until then we had glorious weather and it was joy to travel on uncongested roads. The van was straightforward to drive despite being 7.5 metres long. Great experience.

We had a great week around Golden Bay with our young family and were very well looked after by the staff at Road Abode. The campervan exceeded our expectations, was very comfortable, well equipped, well maintained and a great experience all round! We would recommend Road Abode highly.

We hired a Fiat from Hamish and did a 10 day tour from Nelson dropping off in Queenstown. We had an issue with the vehicle - entirely of our making! - but Hamish was completely unphased, sorted it out and had us back on the road in a few hours. He was a delight to deal with - friendly and communicative. It is so much easier dealing with a small independent Company than through a customer service team. I would highly recommend Road Abode. It made our NZ experience all the better.

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.
