In Nelson, New Zealand


Bessi is our beloved home away from home on wheels. She is a very tidy, reliable, comfortable, economic and well equipped diesel 2 berth Toyota Hiace. We have owned her for nearly two years and have had wonderful road trips both near and far in her. With new upholstery, curtains, a comfy double bed and everything you need to cook- gas hobs, kettle, toaster, pots and pans, cutlery, dish towels, etc travelling and exploring beautiful NZ is a delight in her. There is a fridge to keep your drinks cold and lights, water pump and fridge all run off a pleasure battery which is charged off the engine .It can also be connected to camping powered sights to use kettle and toaster. We can include a solar shower and electric heater for cooler temperatures.

We look after our van and she gets serviced every 6 months so everything is in tip top shape. All bed linen , towels and pillows provided. Please note this campervan is not certified as a freedom camper, we like to encourage visitors to make use of and support the many beautiful Department on Conservation campsites across N.Z. We have NZ road maps and maps detailing D.O.C campsites on-board.

Bessi has a lovely custom made interior with great storage both below the bed seats , and in various over head cupboards.She has a fully equipped kitchen on board with all utensils, pots pans plates etc .

We are based in sunny Nelson and will only take Nelson- Nelson pick up and drop offs. If you arrive after a long haul international flight we recommend you stay with us for a night either in our guest room ( feel free to check out our air b n b sites " the Nest ",or " Fantails perch" ), or park her on our property for free to ensure your trip begins well rested. We recommend an hour or so to explain her features and take her for a test drive.

Bessi enjoys all music and especially loves happy camper singalongs :)

House rules

Bessi is a sweet and complying ride but just to keep her happy, here are some of her feel good factors:
As a non smoker she prefers no one lights up inside.
Driving with respect and calm, please no off roading or big drives on gravel roads (as occasionally it is unavoidable please wind up windows when on them as they are very dusty and the dirt gets everywhere ).
Diesel only !!
No cooking fish / seafood or other smelly meals that would stink her out. Please ensure all rubbish is disposed off at regular intervals.

No extended driving on gravel roads or off roading .
No more than 2 people in van .
No pets .

As a diesel engine she runs very economically and is much cheaper than petrol. For every 1000km a 65NZ$ levy needs to be paid to the Ministry of Transport, we will collect this payment at the end of your trip and pass it on to the NZ transport agency.
Up to 200km per day are included in the Rental Price. The charge is $20 per 100kms once exceeded.
