Motorhome Rental & Campervan Hire Napier

Campervan hire in Napier

Perhaps best known as a major area of export of New Zealand wool, wine, and fruit, Napier is an excellent destination for water- and architecture-lovers alike – particularly those interested in Art Deco. An excellent way to explore this city begins with your feet, as the architecture of the city centre will make you feel like you’ve stepped back into the 1930s. A walk along the Marine Parade is also bursting with sights, including the Marine Parade Gardens and the Sunken Gardens, as well as numerous art installations, the most famous of which has become Pania of the Reef. Nestled between Hawkes Bay and the Kaweka Forest Park, Napier is not to be missed by lovers of the outdoors and the metropolis; after you’ve walked the city, hire a campervan to fully explore this enticing region.

Top holiday parks in Napier

Napier’s most central holiday park is the Kennedy Park Resort, located less than 2 km southwest of the central business district. With the best of Napier at your fingertips and an enormous array of activities within the park itself, you’re guaranteed to have fun-filled days if you choose to overnight here. Located just off the beach 9 km north of Napier, Hawke’s Bay Holiday Park is an excellent place to camp for wine- and water-lovers alike. Just an eight-minute walk from the Crab Farm Winery and a five-minute drive from the well-known Mission Estate and Church Road Wineries, this park is ideal for travellers who intend to explore Napier and Hawke’s Bay by day and relax with a glass of wine at night. Less than 5 km north of Napier’s city centre, the Affordable Westshore Holiday Park provides travellers with easy access to regional exploration, as it is located just off the Napier Hastings Expressway south of the Hawke’s Bay Airport. But this park is also an excellent location for extended stays in the area, as it is within walking distance of the beach and shares a border with the Ahuriri Estuary Boardwalk and Bird Reserve. Travellers in pursuit of a more secluded, nature-surrounded setting for their campervan will be interested in driving thirty minutes north of Napier to the Waipatiki Beach Holiday Park, located on a secluded beach. With terraced sites, this park offers the best of birdsong and ocean views for travellers who want to escape the metropolis.

And then what? Campervan hire in Napier

Travellers headed north along State Highways 2 or 5 after hiring their campervan in Napier will be interested in spending the night at theNapier Beach Kiwi Holiday Park & Motels, a beachside holiday park ten minutes north of Napier. Located across the street from the Crab Farm Winery, this is a great park to spend the night after toasting to your imminent travels. Parking is regulated throughout the central business district of Napier and can cost up to $2 an hour; there is also plenty of free two-hour parking lining the Marine Parade and other outskirts to city centre. The Herschell Street and Tiffen Upper carparks, however, only charge $4 for a full day’s stay. If you need to leave your for an extended period while you explore the region via campervan, you can park your car at the Hawke’s Bay Airport for $12 to $18 a day. Napier lies on the north-south bound State Highway 2, which travels the eastern North Island to connect Wellington in the south with Auckland in the north. Travellers headed to Rotorua will head north on State Highway 2 to its intersection just north of the city with State Highway 5. There are numerous grocery options along Kennedy Road throughout Napier to allow you stock up before you head out. Travellers headed north can stop at the Four Square in Bayview for last-minute grocery needs, though if you plan to do a lot of cooking on your travels, stopping at the Pak’n Save on Coventry Avenue off of Taradale Road is highly recommended.

"I joined up with SHAREaCAMPER at the onset and found the staff exceedingly helpful. They assisted me in gaining my TSL and getting my camper ready to go. The booking system is great, you know exactly when your camper is booked and can easily block dates you wish to use the camper yourself. It is so nice to get some income from the camper when it would normally be just sitting in the shed. Well done guys"
