Eco-Camp with Otto - VW Camper

In Canterbury Region, New Zealand


Find us on Facebook:

We've thought long and hard about exactly how to kit-out our 2006 Volkswagen LT35. That's beacuse we too, love to travel this stunning country.

For starters, Otto is most definitely a well-proportioned, 2-berth camper, offering a comfortable and smooth drive for up to 3 passengers.
It's fully-equipped for a fabulous self-contained stay for freedom campers - using its large roof-mounted solar panel, or for those opting for a camping ground stay - using a combo of mains power, or solar.

Of course, it's tastefully furnished too, with lovely fabrics, cushions and extras.

We've also included a range of magazines and books to flick through while sitting outside under the roll-out awning, or inside in the warm, cosy cabin.
Why not try your luck at a game of cards? A pack is there - just in case you feel like bluffing your wy through a game of poker.
Two cosy snuggle rugs, keep-hot coffee/tea mugs, and an Italian mini stovetop coffee maker means you can feel right at home.

To cut down on unnecessary weight, we have thought long and hard about what items come with your stay. If you required extras of anything, please just ask.

We only use eco-based products for washing sheets and towels, and for much of Otto's cleaning, so you can rest-assured that the you, and the environment are being looked after as best as we can.

Prior to your stay, Otto is washed both inside, and out. However, to be even more eco-conscious, guests can request to leave the exterior unwashed prior to your collection.
With the Canterbury region of NZ often seeing drought, this is an initiative we are trying to harness.
Please state which option you choose when you make your booking - we will ask you beforehand if this option suits you.

Facilities include –

2 x smaller-sized single beds, or 1 x king bed (2 beds combined into 1).* please note, we only provide sheets and pillowcases and duvet for a king-sized bed - we advise using your own sleeping bags for single bed options - (we can offer pillows for you though ☺️
