  • We rented a Nexxo Campervan from Bay of Islands Campervans and we could not have been more happy with the Van and the attention we received from Nick and Rob. We picked it up at the Arcadia Motel and dropped it off in Auckland. Nick called us on the mobile phone that is provided the first night to answer any questions we may have. He was also very responsive when we told...

  • Hired one of their Nexxus motorhomes for just over three weeks in November/December 2014. The customer service we received was second to none, right from the early days when we were planning out trip.

    Jan Dufraing Belgium

  • My partner and I had the Explorer, a quiet and economical diesel camper with lots of power. This auto was easy to drive and just as easy to park. There was no rattling as we drove because everything is safe and secure in the back. I was surprised at how comfortable it was to sit in. Even when we were near the snow the camper van was warm. I was impressed at the amount of...

    Charles Schaasberg

  • We are fortunate that we live in the Bay of Islands so our trip conveniently started at 'home base' of Bay of Islands Campervans. Our intention was to visit the lower South Island areas, such as: Oamaru, Dunedin, Invercargill, Mt Cook, etc., places we haven't been to. Rob and Niek gave us plenty of tips, such as where to freedom park and interesting places to visit and...

    Cheryl Rymer NZ

  • We, Mineke and Dirk, 60+, have rented a Nexxo campervan, during the period 18 oct. till 19 nov. 2014.

Very convenient in a sandfly country. The cooperation with Nick and Rob have we experienced as...

    Mineke & Dirk

They answered all my questions by email, and when I arrived they had the van ready to go, and gave a complete/through checkout. We rented the Nexxo van, which I wish was available for purchase in the US, as I...

    Rudy and Sandra

  • We were extremely happy with the motor-home, it was not only immaculately presented when we collected it but we were given a comprehensive brief by Rob which proved very useful. The standard of service and support provided by both you is to be commended, nothing was too much trouble and this was most welcome. We would not hesitate it recommending you to either family,...

    Daniel Barnes UK

  • We only had two weeks’ time after our cruise to Auckland and decided to see the North Island by motorhome. We have a RV at home, never would have dared to drive it on the roads in New Zealand! Very pleased with the Nexxo we choose, modern, great driving vehicle with all amenities and more! Smooth dealing with the boys, highly recommended!

    Laim Thompson United States

  • Great experience, picked up from Auckland, stayed one night at Baystay B&B and off we went in the Explorer. What a great Campervan, easy to ride and very complete. What a laugh we had every evening when we saw others making their bed. We only had time for the North Island but will be back for the South! Using Bay of Islands Campervans again!

    wimannyyoungseniors Netherlands

  • Excellent campervans! We have seen a lot of lay-out variations and this is by far the best lay-out for the interior. I dont want to make my bed up when on holiday!! ...so having a permanently made up double bed is the way to go! The vehicles are a joy to drive (by comparison to other campervans) they have plenty of power. These campervans are very well thought out - we did...

Their B&B place is really nice and they were taking care for us quite well. The campervan was perfect: not too big and therefore agile. There was everything we needed. Always again!

    The2rrs Australia

  • We booked a campervan because of the many extras Niek and Rob offered and the communication when we asked for an offer. And we read about their great hospitality on the internet.

    Gouldam United States

  • As experienced caravanners from Australia, we thoroughly investigated what was available in campervan hire in New Zealand before deciding on hiring two “Bay of Islands” Campervans, and we were not disappointed. The service from Nick and Rob left nothing to be desired, both on the booking of our vans over the internet and on our arrival in New Zealand. We hired the vans...

    Puma17 United States

  • In March 2013 we rented a camper for 5.5 weeks. By sad circumstances we could motorhome later receive 1.5 weeks. This change in our schedule was solved by Rob and Nick in a pleasant way. The camper was taken to Auckland so we did not first go north to pick him up. They also have a critical look at our schedule and if necessary adjusted so that we could see. Much as...
