Your Hosts: Rob & Nick

About us

We started Bay of Islands Campervans with one thing on our mind: providing a service just like we want to receive ourselves. A bit of luxury (call it ‘Glamping’), reliable material and above all, know who you are dealing with.

Rob and Nick Hire with us, Rob and Nick, and you can count on our expertise and personal attention. We provide ‘turn-key’ motorhomes, complete in any way, so all you have to bring is your camera and clothes.
We have travelled New Zealand up and down ourselves (still do whenever we can!), know where ‘Kiwis’ go, great places to stay, where to eat or what to see. We are happy to share this information with you! Sent us your itinerary, and we make suggestions based on personal experiences!

Pick- or drop- your motorhome anywhere you like, as long as there is a domestic airport, so we can get home again…

If you start from Paihia and meet us in person; Rob or Nick will collect you from Auckland Airport to Paihia and you stay the night in our Baystay B&B.
On your first night, we’ll enjoy an evening meal than it is off for a good night sleep in a luxurious room and the next morning a lavish breakfast. We take all the time it takes to explain the motorhome of your choice. Any questions you may have, we can answer from personal experience.

Can you see yourself, refreshed and relaxed, take off on a Motorhome adventure knowing your rent with the best?

From the outset we knew that we were going to be well looked after and this company has such a personal touch. The van (Explorer) was super clean and everything in it was great quality from the china mugs to the REAL GLASS wine glasses - and our very own WIFI router so we could stay in touch with family and friends the whole time. Rob and Nick are always there if you have a question and phone you on the first day to check that everything is in order and you are happy. During the 4 weeks Rob and Nick helped us sort out a few personal issues with lost property and nothing was too much trouble. The van itself performed really well on winding roads, and up steep gradients, and being automatic it was a dream to drive. The last night in New Zealand was just perfect as Rob and Nick cooked us supper and we had a lovely relaxing evening at their B and B before they drove us to the airport - very luxurious transport! We cannot recommend Bay of Islands Campervans enough and would certainly book with them again if we are lucky enough to visit their beautiful country once more.

We rented a campervan (seeker model) from Nick & Rob to travel across NZ for 4 weeks. After comparing all kinds of campervan hires we opted for bay of islands campervans and we certainly do not regret this! We were looking for a campervan that had a fixed bed (in the back, not above the driver cabin) and the ability to shower in the vehicle without wetting the complete bathroom/toilet. The seeker model had everything we needed (although the bed was less comfortable than we had hoped for). At first bay of islands campervans looked quite expensive but when digging into the details we discovered that all other companies charge extra’s for things you assume to be basics (e.g. a camping chair set, GPS navigation). So if you add it all up the price point is not that different than the competition. The main difference however is in two things: - The quality/luxury of the camper we had was amazing (on many campsites we got compliments on vehicle from both tourists and locals). Everything was there, up to the tourist radio module, gasbbq set and very good GPS navigation. We connected the vehicles audio system via Bluetooth to play our spotify playlist from our the tablet. The on board wifi is really nice and very useful when planning your trip or contacting the home front. -The personal service provided was impressive and we really felt that we had someone to fall back on in case of questions or problems. Before the trip we had a call with Nick and went through our planned route, proving us with useful tips and advice. Upon arrival in Christchurch we picked up the camper and it was explained in detail by Geoff who really took his time for us. The camper contains an (emergency) cell phone and on the first day we had brief call with nick & rob to ensure we were all up & running and everything was ok. During our holiday we had a cyclone coming to new Zealand and received a warning message on the phone the day before to ensure we were safe and aware. We dropped off the camper in Pahia and stayed the last night in the B&B after which we got a personal ride to airport ensuring a timely drop off at the airport. Everything was perfectly arranged to last detail. Our holiday experience has been amazing and for a large part this due the contribution Nick & Rob and the hired campervan. We highly recommend them and wish them all the best with their company.

There are many large companies in New Zealand that rent motorhomes. The difference with BOI campers is the personal approach both before and during the trip. The camper that we had was as good as new and equipped with everything you need. The Explorer is small enough to easily get around and large enough to survive three weeks with two people. The camper has a powerful engine that fits well in traffic. You will receive a phone to contact the owners on the way. We didn't need that luckily. An absolute must is the Wifi package. A very big bundle and no worries about the Internet. When we return to New Zealand, we do not have to doubt where we rent a camper!

We have just had the most memorable, gorgeous & amazing 3 x weeks in New Zealand in a luxury Seeker Campervan. Bay of Islands Campervans with their high reviews was our choice of company to hire from. Throughout, Nick & Robb have been exceptional with their communication & professional advice, they don’t just treat you like a booking number-they treat you as if you are family & the holiday you are planning is just as important to them. Prior to arrival they at all times responded quickly to any query I had emailed & even assisted with our itinerary and gave their personal guidance. During our holiday we had contacted Nick & Rob with enquiries -both where fantastic & sorted us out instantly over the phone. We collected & returned our campervan from Christchurch and managed to travel just under 4000km in the 3 weeks. The Seeker was easy to drive, had fantastic fuel economy, vision was great & trust me-you will be saying “wow” all the time at the jaw dropping scenery, was extremely well fitted out & spotlessly clean. We never felt cold as the heating system is excellent, fixed bed is comfortable, the fridge/freezer is far larger than I expected, the BBQ was great, the awning was simple & set up in seconds, having wifi on board was brilliant & envied from other campervans & I initially had doubts about using the loo-it honestly was simple to empty & the blue chemical kept any odours away. The tourist radio was informative & it has a segment called “the kiwi lingo show” always a good laugh. Of all the other campervans on the roads –we definitely had “the perfect one”. The roads where a lot windier than what we expected & the Seeker manoeuvred beautifully, we shared the driving. If you are a couple that want an exceptional holiday experience with all the added luxury, then there is only 1 choice to having the best campervan & that is to book with Bay of Islands Campervans.
