What Our Customers Are Saying

  • Dear Varnier and Leon,

    We have had a wonderful few days in Melbourne and are now heading to Sydney for  the final leg of our Southern Hemisphere tour – it was been phenomenal 6 weeks and, without doubt, the highlight has been our time in your Awhimai.  She was very special, surpassed expectations, as did your warm welcome and hospitality.  That starting beer on the 27th was such a nice touch and set the scene for a super trip.

    I hope on closer examination Awhimai was ok – do let us know if we owe you for the damaged  trim.

    Until our paths cross again – soon I hope.

    Yours ever.

  • We rented a motorhome from Kiwi Motorhomes for our month long travels over christmas and New Year. From the booking process and throughout our trip we found the owners to be very responsive and helpful.

    The camper was in excellent condition and spotlessly clean. I think the real positive was the small touches which really made the whole experience enjoyable. The owners had inserted a self inflating mattress under the fixed bed which made it very comfortable. The kitchen was very well equipped with all the items you would need and all of it looked brand new. Any minor issues we had were attended to very promptly and the frequent contact and advice/info reference the weather etc was very much appreciated.If you are looking to hire a camper then I really recommend you look no further. You will not be disappointed and can guarantee a great experience

  • We had such a great trip traveling with Kiwi Motorhomes! We rented Muscles campervan for our 16 days trip around NZ. Muscles it’s a 8 years old campervan but in perfect conditions. Leon was sending us SMS with weather alerts and always answering very fast to our needs.Thanks Leon ! We highly recomend Kiwi Motorhomes. We would hire with them again with no doubts !

    Cristina Ordas
  • We were extremely happy with Kiwi Motorhomes from start to finish. They were friendly and informative when we made the booking. The motorhome was brand-new and in perfect condition. The support we received during the trip was just right, they were always on call if needed, and the service received is not comparable with any other providers. Leon and Varnier go the extra mile to make everything special and comfortable. We are already looking forward to the next trip with them.

    Dani & Matt
  • Hired a camper for one month for my wife and I. It was brand new and the Kiwi Motorhomes team were very reponsive with any issues we had and reacted very quickly.

  • Our trip with Kiwi Motorhomes was Amazing.
    It’s a family company and they are actually listening and very proactive to your needs.

    We were hit by the statistics when in the week 2 out of 5 our first camper decided to climb its last hill in the middle of nowhere in south Island (engine failure). We managed to call an assistance, in the next hour a mechanics took us to the closest city for the night.

    The day after, Kiwi Motorhomes managed to get us a brand new big motorhome so that we could continue and end our trip the best way. Thanks so much to the people who took care of us (and drove the motorhome 5hrs straight to us!).

    Please note we were lucky we could have a replacement camper : it was only the beginning of peak season and I guess some people in our case may have to end their aventures in car + lodges but that would have been fine anyway : I’m sure the staff would have come up with a solution for us! Don’t hesitate to contact them. I would totally come back again with kiwi motorhomes.
    Kia Ora! D&P

  • We’ve just had an amazing holiday of almost six weeks in Jordy, touring both islands. A brand new, very comfortable and easy drive motorhome, with everything you need to enjoy your holiday. Chris & Leon brought Jordy to us in Christchurch and we were able to hand back to Leon & Varnier in Auckland. Being such lovely people, who we could contact at any time, and nothing ever being a problem, made it feel like we truly were amongst friends. Meeting other campers & hearing their tales of problems, charges (some daily!) and really poor service, we knew we had gone with the best. Having everything included in the cost, no hidden extras, and such friendly people in their “family” team made all the difference. Huge thanks to everyone 😀 we highly recommend Kiwi Motorhomes as being the only place to go for hiring a camper in New Zealand!!

  • Absolutely loved Bella from Kiwi Motorhomes! We had an awesome trip during the 2 weeks in the South Island of New Zealand. Highly recommend, esp if you are going for your honeymoon and require some additional added touch.

    The campervan was luxurious, spacious, and modern, with added personalised touch in the form of Venetian blinds on all windows, which gave us total privacy. I compared that with many other campervans that we saw during our trip, and there were none with these blinds. Loved it! Driving was a breeze, and we enjoyed the front swivel chairs as well during communal dinners. Hot shower in the fully self contained campervan was a huge plus when we tried our hands at freedom camping. We even had a movie night with the DVDs provided, not to mention the fun board games that were included.

    Service from Kiwi Motorhomes was excellent and beyond expectations. Chris, who handed over the campervan, was liaising with me throughout, even providing me with updates on the weather and suggesting itineraries for us. Leon and Varnier constantly checked in with us from time to time, all to ensure that we were having a blast. Felt really well taken care off, hats off to the team for going over and beyond.

    Do highly recommend Kiwi Motorhomes. We will be back one day! 🙂

    Matthew Pan
  • The camper was great and really well equipt with everything you could think of and more. It was the little things I really appreciated (and didn’t think to bring) like antibacterial wipes for the benches, board games and matches. It drove really well and everything was easy to use. Highly recommended!

  • We just handed off Bella a couple of days ago after 25 days travelling arround New Zealand. We were initially booked on Tricia but were upgraded to Bella as Tricia was not available. She was incredibly well equiped and the drive quality was excellent even though we were driving on “the other side”.

    From the time we booked the motorhome until the time we returned it, we enjoyed the experience so much thanks to Leon and Varnier kindness.

    We would absolutely hire with Kiwi Motorhomes again in the future!

  • Leon and Varnier are the most genuine, caring couple, Kiwi Motorhomes really treat you like a celebrity, they went over and above to ensure that our 7 day trip from the south Is to the Nth Island, was amazing ! small touches like full cutlery, utensils , tea coffee stocked up etc , Immaculate and clean Motorhome. They gave us suggestions of places to visit and apps to download to help us on our way. Leon also sent us lovely messages to ensure we were ok along the way. I would highly recommend Kiwi Motorhomes if you want to be looked after every step of the way !

  • We loved our experience renting from Leon and Varnier so much. Their warm welcome and caring nature was second to none. Everything was simple and they were so kind and lovely… we felt like we were with friends when we met.

    We had the motor home Ted for 2 weeks and absolutely loved it. As a family of 5 with 3 very tall teenage boys, we were impressed with how well it was laid out and just how roomy it actually felt for us. It was incredible easy to drive and park.

    Renting this motor home from Leon and Varnier made our trip to New Zealand very memorable and wonderful. We are so grateful for how simple they made it and for their kind and caring nature. We will be back for sure! Xo

  • We hired a 6 berth campervan for around 10 days. We had an amazing time travelling in this beautiful camper. It was well equiped with all supplies and the drive quality was excellent too.

    We had awesome time and would come back to hire this camper again. Look forward to hiring this campervan again. Leon and Varnier are very friendly and passionate about their business.

  • We hired the Buzz motorhome in late-April 2019 and could not speak highly enough of Leon & Varnier from Kiwi Motorhomes! They were always available if we had a question whilst on the road, and provided delivery and pickup of the motorhome from our hotel at both ends. This particular motorhome was not the newest, but was recommended by them as we were travelling with a 8-month old daughter, and it came with everything we needed. Every aspect including booking, communications, extras required for little Peyton, and small plan changes were all handled easily by these 2 professional operators.

    I believe the best recommendation someone can make about a business is whether they would return, and we would absolutely utilise Kiwi Motorhomes again in the future, and could not recommend them high enough.

    Thanks Leon & Varnier – we hope to see you again when we return!

  • “We had a wonderful experience dealing with Kiwi Motorhomes. From the time we booked the motorhome until the time we returned it, we enjoyed warm and genuine care and service from Leon and Varnier. We were initially booked on Sasha but changed to Jonty as Sasha was not available in Auckland without additional transportation costs. Nonetheless Jonty was big and comfortably furnished and my husband enjoyed driving the powerful manual Fiat Ducato engine. Jonty safely took us to many beautiful places and although we did not need to message Leon for anything, he ensured with his warm messages that we could contact him anytime. Thank you Leon and Varnier for the wonderful KMH experience!”

    Rokiah Adam & Family
  • We (my wife and I) had a great experience with Kiwi Motorhomes right from the start. Informations, rental terms, contract,… all has been made quickly by email without hassle. We got free camping chairs and bikes offered which is usually extra with other companies.

    Before our camping trip started we stayed the previous night in Auckland and Varnier and Leon offered us to bring the camper van to a parking lot close to our hotel which was very convenient for us and nice of them. The van itself was great, only 3 years old, fully equipped with everything and all appliances working as new. The only thing to do for us was hitting the next supermarket, buy food and drinks and off we went to our northern NZ adventure.

    Nice was also the personal touch we got from Kiwi Motorhomes, it felt like borrowing the camper from friends and not from a company, they even followed up during our trip if all is well and if we need anything.

    I would definitely contact them again once we visit New Zealand again.

    Mario Koenig
  • Very good experience to book with Kiwi Motorhomes. The motorhome was in perfect condition and we had no issues with the motorhome during our four week road trip. Family run company with a very personalised service, Leon and Varnier are so friendly and always reachable if any problems come up. Can only recommend to book with Kiwi Motorhomes

  • We hired Jordy for a taste of the Motor Home experience and so glad we chose Kiwi Motorhomes. Just too easy! Leon and Varnier we wonderful to deal with and Jordy had all we needed and more. A couple of nights in the Waikato and we will definitely be back for a longer hire.

    Michelle Williams
  • The team at Kiwi Motorhomes, Leon, Varnier, and Roger made our “bucket list” experience one we will never forget. From start to finish, communication was excellent, I knew how everything worked in the campervan before we left Auckland on our trip south through the beautiful North Island into the spectacular South Island.
    We booked the Nate campervan which was luxurious, easy to drive and even had a complimentary bottle of New Zealand wine. There was just the two of us so we had loads of room, bed was comfy, having a toilet and shower on board, heater, cooking facilities made our trip even more special.
    Prices are very competitive and the added extras like the mountain bikes, outdoor table and chairs, bottle of wine etc, not to mention the fantastic family service made Kiwi Motorhomes the only place we would ever use when booking our New Zealand adventures.
    Roger even offered to give us a lift to the airport when we dropped the camper off.

  • Un verdadero placer haber conocido a León, charlas muy amenas. El motorhome se comportó de diez.

    100% recomendable.

    Hasta la próxima.

  • A great experience from start to finish! It was quite exciting for us to be booking a campervan from the other side of the world but Leon and Varnier were always quick to answer all our questions and very clear in explaining the whole process. Super nice and friendly people, a true family owned business who do there absolute best to make you feel welcome and comfortable from pick-up to drop-off at the airport. After they explained the whole campervan we were on our way. We booked the Tricia campervan but got an identical campervan named Winnie instead. It preformed great, a super nice and easy drive and spacious enough for us, 2 adults and a 3 year old. We had an amazing time cruising around the North Island. Maybe Kiwi isn’t the cheapest option but truely everything was included in the price, so no surprises afterwards! If we can ever go back to explore more of New Zealand we will definitely be booking with Leon and Varnier again!

  • If you are in the enviable position of trying to decide with whom to hire a campervan from for your tour around New Zealand then, without a doubt, go with Kiwi Motorhomes.
    We have just spent 2 weeks in South Island in the company of Benji, one of Kiwi Motorhomes 6 berth vans. He performed brilliantly and accommodated 4 adults in 3 double beds with ease. The onboard facilities giving us the opportunity to freecamp in comfort, even the sub zero nights were not an issue!

    Varnier, Leon and Roger were a pleasure to deal with. From initial enquiry to van drop off, their excellent service, advice and competitive rates ensured we could make the most of our time in NZ. Top marks guys..keep it up 👍👍

    Martin Arnold
  • Kiwi Motorhomes was our choice for an RV rental over two weeks time exploring New Zealand. The entire experience from original quote to drop off of the vehicle at the end of our trip was top notch in quality and customer experience. Having travelled often in the past and seeing customer experience in the hospitality industry, Kiwi Motorhomes excelled highly in their care of us over the trip. The RV was in great shape and ran very well for all of our travels. Pricing was very competitive with other companies and the extras included put it over the top. I could not recommend renting with this company anymore.
