We had a fabulous time in the guesthouse and it had everything we needed to make our trip comfortable and convenient. Paul & Anneke have thought of everything including the kitchen sink! (It is a rubber/plastic sink but all the same). They are also friendly and helpful with some local brochures and information. We would definitely recommend hiring the guesthouse for couples or solo travellers. Also, be prepared to feel like a campsite rock star as many other travellers were really interested in the awesome set-up so we did get a little attention along the way. Only thing we would add is to make sure you bring some tunes. I forgot to pack my iPod and radio reception isn't the best around the island so that is on me. The cables are provided to plug it in, you just need the device. Thank you Paul & Anneke and hopefully we'll see you both again in the future as there is still so much more of Tassie to see!

I spent 7 days cruising around parts of Tasmania in Paul & Anneke's van. Had the best trip, the van is equipped really well & very comfortable & cozy to sleep. The capability of staying in national parks due the the available lighting & phone charging capacity is awesome

Everything perfect. The van was in very good conditions and Paul was great to communicate with. Everything was exactly as described and perfect for our needs. We certainly recommend Paul's portable guest-house.

We absolutely loved our time in this van and couldn't recommend it more highly. It came with a lot of homely touches which were greatly appreciated from olive oil and chux through to a spice rack! Communication was ultra responsive and casual. Overall we couldn't rate our time around Tassie in this van any more highly - if you're looking for a budget van kitted out with everything you need just book this one!

We had a wonderful week camping in the Portable Penthouse. Paul and Anneke are lovely, and have thought of everything when it comes to living out of the van. We camped in October and were very warm in the pop up. The kitchen had spices, sauces, dishwashing things and all the utensils you need. The van is very comfortable to drive, and also very fuel efficient. Would highly recommend.

The van was a perfect home for my friend and I to travel around Tasmania! Had every thing we needed over the trip! Peter and Anneke were very friendly and helpful with everything including suggestions on planning our trip!

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 2°C 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.
