About The Portable Penthouse

A room with a view where ever you are, watch the sunrise from your bedroom window.

Designed and built by ourselves, this van has everything you could need for a camping trip around beautiful Tassie. A pull out kitchen holds the cutlery, crockery, a pot and two pans. In the boot there's a double burner gas stove, a semi stocked pantry and spacious drawer storage system. Camping table and chairs included for outdoor use. A fridge (running off a second battery) completes the setup to keep everything fresh.

This van is bound to give you a unique taste of Tasmania.

We loved our time in the portable penthouse. Paul and Anneke were friendly, accomodating and the van exceeded all expectations. It was incredibly clean, compact and everything had been thought of - including wine glasses and uno! We will definitely be renting again. Thank you to you both!

Both the owners and the car were amazing. The car was very reliable and comfortable with absolutely everything even more than I needed. One night when it was only 2C at night I felt very cold, but all the other nights it was warm enough in the rooftop tent and I slept like a baby. The tent is very easy and quick to pop up and back down. The owners were super helpful, flexible and accommodating. Highly recommended, I had a magnificent solo roadtrip around beautiful Tassie! Thank you!

The Camper Van was great and came equiped with everything we needed. The van drove well - was obviously a bit sluggish up hills - but was very easy to drive. The penthouse tent was very easy to pop up and was nice and warm once we got inside. The van set up was a bit awkward once you had the ladder up to the tent - but once you got used to everything it worked well enough. Great fridge and amenities provided.

We had a great experience with this van. It had everything we could have asked for and more - utensils, charging cables, torches, we had everything we needed. The tent was really easy to put up and down, and the bed was comfortable. Couldn't have asked for more. Thanks Paul

Amazing! With the portable penthouse we had the freedom to travel the entire state, and have the convinience of all our creature comforts with us. The van came fully equipped with everything we could possibly need. (Aux cords, cooking equiptment, fridge, plenty of storage space and all the coffee, tea and condiments.) Paul and Anneke really went above and beyond setting this up and having it ready for anything you might need. The pop up tent on the roof was surprisingly easy to put up and get down also. Will definitely do this holiday again and recommend it to anyone looking to explore Tasmania.

The Penthouse was the perfect home on wheels for our few day adventure to Bruny Island. The van was well stocked and had everything we needed to camp at the national park.
