We are Northlanders thinking of purchasing a motorhome, so wanted a trial run.
We found Karen extremely easy to deal with; prompt, helpful, organised and friendly.
The 4 berth we had was immaculately clean, well equipped and everything was in fresh condition. Kitchen and living space was generous for two of us. Many extra little touches made things easy. The one thing we didn’t try to use was the shower.
The van had plenty of power and great visibility.
We appreciated being able to take our dog, and Karen supplies a good quality seat cover if you want your dog to be able to sit up in the cab’s third seat.
The whole package was a 100%positive experience and we would recommend Coastal Campers to you.

Our first visit to New Zealand involved a 5 week hire of a motor home to enable us to tour both North and South Islands. We hired the motor home from Coastal Campers and were not disappointed. They are a family run firm so you get personal service from beginning to end. Our van was clean and well maintained and was fully equipped with everything we needed (bedding, towels, a well appointed cooking area, good quality blackout curtains, outside table and chairs………they have thought of everything……even a notepad and pen and torch!!). We travelled just over 5000km during our stay and had a fantastic time. We had many wonderful views to look at, enhanced by the very large windows which many other vans that we saw did not have. The only problem was that we had to return the van at the end of the trip ! Thank you Karen and Craig for everything. We will be back!
Very best wishes.

Our Coromandel road trip was made 100% hassle free and enjoyable because we chose Coastal Campers. Not one single complaint, the owners were extremely welcoming, helpful and friendly and surely know what it takes to equip a camper van. The camper was most comfortably accommodating, well-equipped in the living department, with plenty of driving power and stability for our coastal journey – exceeding our expectation (having previously only hired from the bigger companies) this, without doubt, was the best campervan for a road trip.
We 100% recommend a Coastal Campers experience – Thank you Coastal Campers, the only way to go!
Annette and Trevor Scott
Thank you soooo much Karen and Craig!! Our trip was amazing as you can see from my pics on FB. What an incredible country and we are so blessed and grateful to have visited. I think campervan is the ONLY way to get the best experience possible, if only we had more time!! We have rented in the US a couple times and there was no comparison to the service you provided. You guys are the best. I know nothing is ever perfect, but this trip was close. Wonderful memories for a lifetime.
We had 10 lovely weeks traveling around New Zealand with Coastal Campers. Karen and Craig were great. If you want a company that you can trust go with them.
Absolutely brilliant from start to finish!!
We hired a 4 berth campervan back in Nov/Dec 2018 which was excellent value for money and incredibly comfortable for our month-long road trip! The van ran like a dream and everything we could possibly need for our holiday was included. The customer service from Karen and Craig was fantastic and unlike other large branded companies they don’t try to introduce lots of add-ons to increase the price of the rental, instead, they will helpfully advise of cheaper options, which we were very grateful of with it being our first holiday of this kind. We wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Coastal Campers to anyone looking for campervan rentals in the future, and we hope to return to New Zealand one day and do it all over again!
Once again we had a fabulous time on our “springtime break” holiday.
The 4 berth motor home from Coastal Campers was just perfect for our needs and we couldn’t have wished for more.
We would have no hesitation in recommending Coastal Campers to anyone wanting a truly professional motor home experience.

To anyone thinking of booking a campervan, I can thoroughly recommend Coastal Campers: If you want a hassle free, easy to understand – NO hidden fees, up front and simple booking experience then book with Coastal Campers. The great value and service doesn’t stop there…. Coastal Campers then brought the van to us at the airport and took care to show us everything we needed to know. They were only a phone call away when we had a question, and the campervan was clean and in great working order – we had enough towels, bedding and kitchen utensils etc. for our booking and had a wonderful experience of New Zealand. We won’t book with anyone else.
Hi Karen & Craig
Firstly we must congratulate you on the standard of campervan. Everything was provided from the linen and especially in the kitchen area. All top notch!!!
That is something we had not experienced in some of our other hires elsewhere. A big thank you!!
Cheers from Oz
Arie & Angela Schellaars
We have been really impressed with both your campervans and you as people to deal with. We had a fantastic holiday. Thanks again.
We had a great trip and we appreciate that when we did need your help, you were there for us 110%. Thank you so much for running such a great business with awesome ethics.

Dear Karen & Craig
Thank you for organising the campervan for us…it lived up to and exceeded our expectations, clean, excellently and thoughtfully equipped and a great drive.
We saw much more of the country than we would have done, and had great fun getting to little bays and campsites in quite remote locations.
The service offered by Karen and her team was attentive and efficient, everything explained and thought through…and when we needed to query anything there was someone there to take our call. Can’t wait until the next time
Very best wishes
Hi Karen & Craig
Thanks for being so very helpful and friendly on our recent trip. We had a great time and really enjoyed the motor home experience in your beautiful country. The little touches that you put in your motor homes made this a really pleasant experience and we do intend to come back again for a longer trip.
Margaret & David Loker
We had a truly fabulous time on the campervan and are now hooked on that style of travelling! We covered a lot of ground but loved the way we could just stop off anywhere and enjoy the scenery.
Rebecca & Paul Honiss
We enjoyed our stay in NZ very much and the use of the motorhome attributed to the success of our holidays. The motorhome was in good shape, tidy and did not let us down a single time. It was completely fitted. No hidden fees and no micromanagement on small scratches etc which are inevitable when travelling in NZ with a motorhome. When we come back we certainly will contact Coastal Campers again.
Sar & Marcel
We had such a good time and the camper was perfect for our needs. We have no hesitation at all in recommending you and hope we have another opportunity ourselves to hire from you again.
Marlene & Robert
The bedding was great, the camper was terrific, perfect design for us and we all fitted beautifully. It travelled really well.
We have been talking to friends who are keen to see NZ, when we come over we will certainly hire from you again, we really loved the camper and especially the service, having Craig turn up at our motel, explain how everything worked was fantastic and saved us a huge amount of time (Mum & Dad spent 2 1/2 hours picking theirs up and still had to watch a DVD). Thanks again.
Dear Karen & Craig
We found your website to be a lovely showcase for your business. User friendly, lovely local photos, all important details clearly stated with no added strings attached, one price all inclusive. The campervan was very well equipped and presented in top notch order. Your introduction to motor homing was cheerful, friendly and we appreciated your little tips of advice. Great way to travel having the independence to go wherever anytime. We have no hesitation in recommending Coastal Campers; we hope to have another adventure with you soon.

Hi Karen & Craig
Thank you for the rental of your motorhome. We had a fantastic holiday and we really appreciate your good, honest family-run service. It makes the difference, rather than dealing with the faceless names of the bigger companies.
We will certainly recommend you to all our friends.
Gary & Lynne
Would highly recommend hiring from Coastal Campers in Whitianga. We hired a 6 Berth when we travelled from Hamilton to the South Island for 3 and a half weeks.
Craig delivered and picked up from our home address, which made it easier to pack and get on our way, (especially when we have two young girls, aged 4 and 2 to organise and as you seem to take everything part the kitchen sink when holidaying with a young family).
The campervan had everything we needed and was clean and tidy and when delivered Craig explained everything in detail.
When dealing with Craig and Karen you get personal service not like the bigger firms so it made the whole experience more enjoyable. Also when you hire from Coastal Campers there are no hidden costs so you can go on holiday and not have any surprises on your return.
The service you provided made the whole experience easier.
We recommend Coastal Campers and would defiantly use again in the future.
Tracey and Maurice
Dear Karen and Craig
We just wanted to say thanks so much for hiring out your campervan to us.
We had an amazing time, can’t wait to do it again. The children had the most fabulous time, and let’s face it when you are on holiday if the children are happy – everyone is happy.
We were very impressed at how self contained the camper was, all we had to pack was clothes and food. Makes a very stress free holiday. Thanks again, you will hear from us again in the near future.
Andrew & Leanne McLeod
Thanks to you guys for the hire of the campervan. We had a great time and it was a great introduction to the campervan way of travel! Great to hear that you donate to Kauri 2000 as well. A worthwhile cause and I’m glad that a portion of our rental can go towards this!
Thanks again Karen and we’ll certainly recommend Coastal Campers to anyone looking at travelling around this area. Your service from start to finish was wonderful!
Jodie & Brad
Dear Karen & Craig
Thank you sincerely for a brilliant holiday opportunity by campervan….a new experience for us and hopefully not the last.
We thoroughly enjoyed finding the sparkling beaches and unusual attractions around every corner…..it truly was a holiday of a lifetime for us both! It was a pleasure to do business with such a pleasant proprietor and Blink’s expert driving skill was truly appreciated!
We will recommend you to all our friends and acquaintances.
Love and Blessings,
Tom & June
Thank you very much for having the campervans available for us to hire. We packed all of our gear in and set off for a week long adventure.
The campervans were perfect, and fully equipped with everything we needed. There was heaps of room to store our clothes etc, and the beds were comfortable.
Travelling with a three year old and an almost two year old is not always easy, but the campervan was our travelling home, and took the hassle out of touring around. Whenever the children got hungry or thirsty we could just pull over and all we needed was at our fingertips. When we parked up for the night, the children knew exactly where they were sleeping and with minimum fuss the beds could be made up and they were ready for sleep.
The friendly and helpful service that we received from Coastal Campers was really appreciated and we are already planning our tour for next year.
Darren & Sharon Walker
Coastal Campers Ltd went beyond what was dreamed to give us a great deal, and a well equipped and tidy Campervan.
We had a wonderful months holiday, where the van went so well, completely trouble free.
We hope to do it again in the near future and recommend to all a great company to deal with. Many thanks Karen & Craig.
John & Elaine Shaw
Dear Karen & Craig
We are now back in the U.K. with our holiday just a memory but a very happy one.
We want you to know that we were very happy with our campervan and thank you Karen for explaining everything so clearly to us when we collected it.
The van was equipped with everything we needed and we would be happy to recommend your company to others and also to use you again should we manage to make a further trip to New Zealand.
With our thanks and kind regards
Jenny & Peter Moodie
