We, a Swiss couple, rented a campervan (model Seeker) from Bay of Island for 26 days in December 2016/January 2017. The campervan was quite luxury and we were very, very content with the campervan. It was much better than expected. It was very new; so new that we hardly dared to touch something at the beginning!
The campervan was easy to drive as it was very maneuverable. We also were glad that we have chosen a model with a fix and big bed which we could leave during driving – so we did not need to reinstall every evening. The bed was very comfortable (soft and big).
The campervan had a lot of nice extras: tv, camping table and camping chairs and a gas barbecue, wifi, nice and complete kittchen equipment with even real dishes (no plastic!) etc. which we enjoyed a lot – we really “glamped”. We are convinced that we have chosen the best available campervan for two persons and we hare happy that we found Bay of Island Campervans!
The handover at the beginning and the end of the rental in Christcurch was a bit strange. There was a very kind older lady; however it appeared that she never was involved in a handedover of a campervan before. She did not really know what to do and what to say. Also when we returned the campervan at the end she said that she did not expected us but only the next day.
However there was a very clear handbook in the campervan which explained everything. Also there was the possibility to call the owner of Bay of Island by mobile at any time (which we did not need to do).
