Too good to be true
Sound too good to be true, absolutely not. Nick and Rob live up to everything they offer.
There are no hidden costs, so no nasty surprises at the end of your holiday.
We arrived in Auckland, Rob met us and took us to the Bay of Islands where we stayed at their B&B. The
first night was free, just as they said and we were also taken out to dinner.
Our campervan was the Explorer, a great van, we had it for 40 days. We drove from the northern most
point, crisscrossing the country right down to the south.
We chose it to have two separate sleeping areas.
We had everything we could possibly need, a full working kitchen, a cooker with an oven, a microwave,
kettle and a toaster.
We also had a shower room with toilet and hand basin. This came in very handy for hanging wet stuff.
The van was so easy to drive and park, we got on the ferry for the price of a car. We got good mileage
from the diesel too, had quite a bit of our fuel budget left.
Nick and Rob were very keen to help us with whatever we needed, from planning routes to suggesting
places that may be of interest to us. They did it in a way that was non intrusive and their offer of always
being on the end of the phone was genuine.
The built in Wi-Fi was a real bonus, we had travelled gadget free but we made good use of the laptop in
Nick and Rob contacted us during our last week to confirm that they had ordered and paid for the taxi to
take us to the airport in Christchurch from the Arcadia Motel, where we left the campervan.
Geoff and Michelle at the Motel were very welcoming and made sure we had everything we needed
before we left for the airport, including confirming a pick up time with the taxi company.
All in all, an excellent experience with two of the nicest people you could ever hope to meet.
We have no hesitation in recommending The Bay of Islands Campervans.
