All about us
While our respective childhoods were a few years apart, Kylee and I shared the ultimate Kiwi camping experiences and it’s something neither of us have grown out of. Now – in our 40’s (and in my case, 50’s) we’re searching out those same experiences but in the relative comfort of a well-equipped campervan.
Our idea of the perfect holiday is heading away in a stocked up campervan to explore the lesser-known parts of New Zealand. Pulling into a quiet spot, getting the BBQ on and settling in. Slow travel, stopping often and turning off down that interesting looking side road to who-knows-where.
To live in this country and have these experiences literally just a drive away is a privilege. Like many other Kiwis though, it took leaving this place to actually realise this. Both of us are travellers. Kylee has spent as much of her adult life living and working in the UK as in New Zealand and I was born into a family of travel agents travelling out of NZ often.
We’re excited about sharing “our place” with you in a camper perfectly suited to make the most of an extended New Zealand adventure. We think that by setting up these campers as we would like them they will almost certainly be your kind of camper too.
We carefully selected our campervans and have thoroughly tested each one ourselves. We chose Mercedes Benz Sprinters as they’re super reliable and spacious – we don’t like to feel cramped and I’m on the taller side and definitely want full headroom. We added the features that we know matter – solar panels, an awning, a barbecue and good quality linen!
Details make all the difference. Kylee is a little on the fastidious side – and has literally thought of everything when setting up Flo, Fay and Gina. Handy little torch when you need it? Yep. Insect repellent? Yep. I won’t go on but hopefully, you get the picture – these vans are ready for anything.
NZ is a long way away and you’re usually arriving off a long flight. We thought about how we could make your first day (and night) as easy as possible. That’s why we meet you at the airport, we introduce you to your campervan and get you on your way (with directions if you like) and a few carefully chosen items for your first night (milk, eggs, vegetables, fruit and a few other essentials – chocolate!)
If this all sounds like your kind of camper then we’d love to chat further. Get a quote started here and we’ll be back in touch right away.
