Our Kombi's

check out the deets of our kombi family

Our kombi camper vans are all kitted out with everything you need for an awesome adventure. However, they are not self-contained and so you'll need to stop at camping spots with toilet facilities.

We require an hour of your time at pick-up to show you the ropes, to go over the individual quirks of your home away from home, and finally, to give you some advice on driving a retro van in New Zealand.

You then get to hit the road, pick up some groceries to start you off, take in the scenery along the way, and most of all - enjoy the adventure.

So just pack your clothes, along with your enthusiasm, to experience the best road trip ever!

Retro Kombi Vibes!

We're Lynda & Warren

Adventure following KOMBI FANATICS, seeking the thrill OF NEW ROAD TRIPS

"Happy to be on the road again?" I'll say to Warren as he gets behind the wheel at the start of our road trip. "Always" is the answer I get - Every. Single. Time!

We get a huge buzz out of driving our retro kombi van, Aggiee, and exploring New Zealand's stunning country, from small towns to cities, from beaches to lakes, from mountains to the bush. We've got it all here!

Makes our day when we get a wave, a thumbs up, or even yells from people hanging out their windows.

We even get random strangers popping over when we're parked up to talk about their past lives and adventures with their beloved kombi van, and we're happy to chat.

Isn't that what life is all about? Making connections.

MORE ABOUT HIM

From the mountains & trees

to the beaches & sea, i love it all.

I'm Warren, a typical kiwi with DIY attitude. 

Hunting and gathering is my jam and any chance I get I'll be out there!

Stalking white tail deer on Stewart Island | Snorkelling for paua at Riverton or Bluff | Diving for crayfish in Doubtful Sound | Blue cod fishing on Foveaux Strait.

I've owned a mechanical workshop for many a year now, so it's a bit of an occupational hazard to collect vehicles. Not sure how or why the collection expanded to kombi vans but there you go - and here we are!  

That buzz we get when we're driving our retro kombi van? I want you to feel that buzz too!

It totally makes my day when we see you at the end of your trip and you can't stop grinning because of the awesome time you've had!

MORE ABOUT HER

From the love of the open road

to that feeling of freedom.

Hey, I'm Lynda, and creative is my middle name!

Sewing, gardening or creating in the kitchen. Any type of artwork and amateur photography. I LOVE black and white film photography most of all -it's so expressive!

A total introvert who hates small talk, I can still talk your ear off about kombi's, my fur babies, and sewing, which just happens to be my other great passion. Most days you'll find me proudly wearing something handmade (and funny thing, that retro vibe extends to my new/old-look Singer sewing machine - guess I love retro anything!)

I want you to feel that excitement, that passion, that happy, holiday experience - one you're going to talk about for years - because we only get one life and I want you to make the most of yours!

hey there!
