Wij waren zeer tevreden over zowel de verhuurders als over onze campervan. Na de aankomst in Auckland werden wij door een busje op gehaald en na 4 uur rijden kwamen wij aan bij Lorraine en Jeroen. De ontvangst was zeer hartelijk. 's Avonds heerlijk gegeten en na een goede nachtrust in hun B&B kregen wij de volgende ochtend een uitgebreide uitleg over de door ons gehuurde Van. Wij hadden gekozen voor de Toyota Jumbo2. Deze was nagenoeg helemaal nieuw. Het was voor ons eerst wel even wennen omdat wij in Nederland zelf over een camper beschikken, die aanmerkelijk groter is, maar na enige tijd voelden wij ons er prima in thuis en was het eigenlijk wel heel knus.
Wij hebben 5 weken door Nieuw Zeeland gereisd en zowel het Noorder- als het Zuider- eiland bezocht. Wat is dit een verschrikkelijk mooi land !!!!!!!!! Toen wij in het vliegtuig terug zaten had mijn vrouw tranen in de ogen en zei: "Ik wil hier wel wonen."
Voor een ding willen wij wel waarschuwen en dat is de weka. Toen wij op een camping op het Zuider Eiland stonden waren wij op een gegeven moment onze campersleutel kwijt Bij de receptie vertelde men ons toen dat deze loopvogel alles meeneemt naar zijn nest wat hij vindt. Wij hebben toen Jeroen gebeld en die heeft met een koeriersdienst een reservesleutel opgestuurd die binnen 24 uur bij ons werd af geleverd. Complimenten voor Jeroen en de koeriersdienst.
Aan het einde van onze reis hebben wij moe maar met veel nieuwe ervaringen de camper weer ingeleverd. Na 's avonds nogmaals heerlijk te hebben gegeten en na nog een overnachting in hun B&B zijn wij de volgende dag vanaf Rotorua Airport met een binnenlandse vlucht vertrokken naar Auckland waar wij nog een dag hebben door gebracht.
Jeroen en Lorraine heel erg bedankt voor alles en als wij nog een keer naar Nieuw Zeeland komen zullen wij zeker bij jullie weer een camper huren

We had a great experience with Rotorua Campervans and highly recommend them without exception. The owners thoroughly covered all of our questions before we set off and were very responsive to a few additional questions once we'd hit the road. We received lots of personalized recommendations based on our interests and travel plans, which got us to places we certainly would not have seen otherwise. We originally had concerns about getting a van from the town of Rotorua instead of Auckland, where we were landing, but coordinating transportation was really easy. The campervan itself was fantastic, unique, and we received numerous enthusiastic questions about it during out trip. We selected the Explorer, which was a perfect fit for our family of four. The van was well-equipped and had everything we needed during our month-long stay. We stayed in a mix of holiday parks and self-contained DOC campsites and the campervan was well-outfitted for both. We very much enjoyed getting to know the owners and their personal attention and concern was one of the highlights of our trip.

Zeer enthousiast en hartelijk welkom, daarna bijkomen in een gezellige B&B, die wel wat gehorig is, met name als de bewoners boven lopen. Heerlijke maaltijd samen met het gezin. In alle rust ontvang je informatie over bezienswaardigheden in Nieuw Zeeland en vervolgens over het gebruik van de campervan. Er is een map en een reisatlas om alles in na te kijken. Dit maakt het ontdekken van Nieuw Zeeland op je eigen manier mogelijk in een self-contained campervan. Alles en meer dan we wensten was aanwezig. Door de tip om overdag het beddengoed op te rollen was het geen probleem dat we geen vast bed hadden, binnen korte tijd veranderden we de dagstand in de nachtstand en v.v. Bij vragen kregen we direct en goed advies. Mailcontact was prettig en snel. Bij terugkomst weer een erg hartelijke ontvangst. Mochten we opnieuw naar Nieuw Zeeland reizen zouden we zeker weer via Rotorua Campervans onze reis maken. We hebben deze keer onze 8 weekse rondreis in een Toyota Hitop gemaakt, maar zouden voor een volgende reis van eenzelfde of langere periode voor een iets meer comfortabele uitvoering kiezen mbt het zitten en liggen.

Heerlijke campertocht gemaakt in de Toyota Jumbo 2 persoons diesel automaat camper. De Toyota Jumbo 2 persoons diesel automaat camper met z'n iets krachtiger motor is erg goed bevallen. Jeroen's en Lorraine's prima begeleiding en warme ontvangst heeft ons een zorgeloze 4 weken gegeven!

Wonderful motorhome journey made in the Toyota Jumbo 2 seater diesel automatic camper. The Toyota Jumbo with its slightly more powerful engine is very liked. Jeroen's and Lorraine's great support and warm reception gave us a carefree 4 weeks!

Het is één van onze beste beslissingen geweest (naast 6 weken naar Nieuw-Zeeland gaan) om een camper te huren bij Jeroen en Lorraine van Rotorua Campervans. We gingen voor het eerst op reis met een baby van 9 maanden. Vooraf hadden we via email hadden al leuk contact en het is superfijn hoe er mee gedacht werd over waar de baby het beste kon slapen en waar zij zou zitten tijdens het rijden. Een babytentje, inclusief beddengoed en autostoel werd voor gezorgd. Daarnaast vonden wij het fijn om na 24 uur reizen niet meteen een camper in te stappen en weg te moeten rijden, maar even te acclimatiseren in de B&B. Je moet dan nog wel 3 uur in de shuttlebus maar dat kan er dan ook nog wel bij. De ontvangst was super, het eten heerlijk en op deze manier hadden we alle tijd om kennis te maken met onze camper. We hadden de Monaco Dream gehuurd. Niet de goedkoopste maar wat een prachtige camper! Veel ruimte, alles erop en eraan en overal is over nagedacht. Heerlijk matras waar wij als lange mensen goed op konden liggen, een gasbbq en een echt complete keukenuitrusting.
Jeroen en Lorraine zijn super gastvrije en warme mensen. Zij zijn extreem service gericht en denken echt met je mee. Mede dankzij hen en de Monaco Dream is onze vakantie een echte droomvakantie geworden waar we nog heel lang van zullen na genieten.

A family run business, with personal attention. Good price-quality ratio. For travellers from abroad very nice to stay the night at the family's B&B in Rotorua, before taking to the road. Choice between new and used Campervans.

After arriving in New Zealand, we were taken by taxi from the airport to Rotorua Campervans. When we arrived we were warmly welcomed (as if we were there for years).
After acquaintance we could take a room in their B & B to just relax. At night we could, while enjoying a glass of wine, enjoy a delicious meal and we got all the time to ask a few things about New Zealand. Tired but satisfied we went to bed. Having got a great night's sleep and an excellent breakfast, we got a detailed explanation of the motorhome (in Dutch, very handy), and so many tips that you can fill it with several holidays. Relaxing time! And knowledgable we could start our tour. This was great (also thanks many tips). A problem with the refrigerator was quickly and efficiently remedied. All in all a great service and therefore a top holiday. If we go again we will be back in Rotorua Campervans. Thanks very much!

On March 6, we left for New Zealand. We had heard about good experiences with Rotorua Campervans. After reading their site, including many references, we contacted them and from the first contact we "clicked". They provided personal service and clear and friendly answers to our questions. After exchanging emails we booked nice camper (the Mileo) as well as 2 additional nights in their B & B. The reception at RotoruaCampervans was particularly warm and we felt very welcome. It is a special experience to be received that personal way. We had dinner together and exchanged some fun trip stories with each other and slept in the fine B & B. On the day of departure with the camper, everything was well explained as well as some "facts" about traffic and tips on using the app Camper Mate, and we also discussed the benefits of using a local mobile provider and having a good look at the weather forecast. Very practical and as promised no surprises. What struck us was how the camper was completely furnished, full inventory for the kitchen, linen and towels etc. but also two mountain bikes and a gas BBQ. We had a carefully compiled folder of the scenic route to take, and ideas of things to see. We have been to the North and South Island and we had wonderful trip in a very beautiful and friendly country, where the first impression but also the farewell was marked by the hospitality of Lorraine, Jeroen and their kids, thank you dear people. If we decide to visit New Zealand again we do not have to go looking for a motorhome because we'll come to RotoruaCampervans. Kia Ora, Ingrid and Aart Wagelaar.

Extremely cordial reception and a beautifully manicured property for the first night. I was traveling alone for a few weeks so it was very nice to be here speaking my language and talking about all the special places in New Zealand. I hired an 'older' bessie and it was well maintained, and drove well for 7,000km, besides I did not need luxury and found I can go anywhere just fine with this smaller version of a camper. Upon returning, I was again warmly welcomed and they were incredibly helpful in the further planning of my trip. It is highly recommended to hire the camper through Rotorua Campervans.

It has been a very good experience to rent a campervan at Rotorua Campervans. The day of arrival you will have a nice place to rest and you will get a lot of tips of the best places to see in this wonderful country.

Enjoy your NZ experience.

We prefer to give two figures:
a 9 for Jeroen and Lorraine of the rental company, they are very affectionate, give excellent guidance, have a great B & B!
a 5.5 for the camper: we requested a small camper with a bed for 2 and a height of 2m. That expectation was certainly satisfied. What we had not expected was the age of the motor, which was a bit older, 14 years. What was disappointing, was the quality was of the (bed / couch) cushions, not soft enough for us. Furthermore, the handling was not easy: especially in NZ, with many mountains and turns, the car would go uphill with great difficulty. The equipment was otherwise all right, nothing was missing. We also had no problem on the way. The focus from us in the future: more questions about renting RV!

Rotorua Campervans responds:

We would like to thank you for your review and feedback, off course we appreciate the 9 for our service, but we think a 5.5 for our campervan is not a fair rating because the bed was not soft enough. We do understand that a bed is a real personal thing and that the same bed can be to soft for one person and to firm for someone else (most of our guests love this big bed) We could have easily solved your "firm" bed by adding an extra peace of foam, but you only informed us on the end of your 3 week rental.
We have a range of campervans from NEW to our 20 year old RETRO Isuzu to try to satisfy all of our clients budgets, but all of our campervans first have to comply with our high personal standards, new or old before they go on hire.

The 2 berth camper you rented has a 2.4L petrol injection motor and has all the power you need in a campervan, it is a nice and great to drive campervan that can easy keep up with other traffic, but after all it is still a campervan and not a sports car. After you returned this campervan I took your handling comment very serious and took it for a long test drive on some (very steep) hills and on some of these hills I had to change down to as low as 2nd gear to still get uphill with ease, even in a brand new campervan (or sports car) I would have to use the 2nd and 3rd gear on these steeper hills but you will lose your speed fast and would go uphill with great difficulty if you are trying to get up the same hill in the wrong gear. So I found nothing wrong with the handling of this campervan as long as I used the right gears.

All our campervans are delivered clean and come with quality inventory. Specially because you state that your requested campervan was up to your expectation, the equipment was otherwise all right, nothing was missing and you also had no problems on the way with the campervan and you where certainly satisfied (accept the bed) we think this campervan deserved a higher rating.

Kind Regards, Jeroen and Lorraine

A very warm welcome from the owners and a free night in their B&B (from a certain number of rental days onward) was the perfect start of our holiday. Our Toyota Explorer campervan was spacious inside but compact and very easy to drive. They gave us a thorough explanation of car & country, and very reasonable tariffs. We would certainly come back!

Small company with excellent personal service. Your trip starts with a night at their bed & breakfast, so you can get rid of your jet lag.Clear explanation of how the van works. Good price- quality ratio. We hired a van for three months and had a great time.
