Brent and Kim provided a fantastic van for our holiday. All was as advertised, the van was ideal for our holiday and performed really well.
Brent and Kim provided a good briefing when we picked up the van and also gave a comprehensive listing of how to set the van up and also all the stuff that was included.
Along the way we had a few minor issues, but Brent was available on the phone and the issues were addressed really quickly.
Highly recommend this van for your next holiday.
Thanks for all your help.

We hired this van for a 2 night holiday with our family. Brent and Kim were really flexible, easy going and absolutely fantastic to deal with. The van itself was immaculate inside and out, was fully stocked with the essentials and the little additions like the children's colouring and games were nice little extras that were thrown in. Brent and Kim explained in detail on how to use the van and were available to be contacted at all times if we needed anything. As they made the whole experience stress free, we wouldn't hesitate to hire from Brent and Kim again.

We had an amazing trip away in the caravan. Brent and Kim were very thorough with the set up making it very quick and easy to set up. They were very helpful when we needed to call them about something and went above and beyond to sort it quickly. We had 2 young kids with the youngest in a portacot which fits perfectly in 2 spots. Our kids loved it and actually slept pretty well. We will definitely be hiring from Brent and Kim again.

It was absolutely amazing! Words can't describe how much we enjoyed staying in the home away from home. We had a fair few hot days and it couldn't have handled that much better. Brent and Kim were very helpful and always there in case you needed to ask them something. They showed me the ropes of how the setup and pack up goes. I'd recommend anyone and everyone to hire this amazing van. It was beyond comfy and it felt just like home. Plenty of room to move. Didn't feel cramped which was great. We will definitely be hiring it out in the future at some point. Highly recommend.

We had such a great trip with Brent and Kim's Home Away From Home. It was just the right size for us, which made for easier towing and keeping this caravan tidy was very easy. we were 2 adults and 2 kids and the kids shared a double and the curtains made it easy to get them down for bed time. Air-con was great and has everything we needed.

Communication with Kim were timely and lovely, my husband really liked Brent and was really happy with the fully explanation for set up and the electronic brake controller was much simpler than the bulky cord type. Both Brent and Kim were supportive and caring with the type blowout- we were very grateful that had everything we needed to change it over without too much hassle.

Brent and Kim were very friendly and explained every part of their caravan thoroughly. You can tell they are vary passionate about their Caravan and what they do. Towing the caravan was simple, easy and it ran very smoothly. Also with the ease of the elec brake system it makes up for anyone without a brake controller fitted to their vehicle. I would highly recommend the Brent and Kim's Home Away from Home to anyone. The only fault I had with the trip was that is was definitely not long enough.

We had a great time in Brent & Kims Home Away from Home Jayco Expanda caravan.
My wife and 2 kids travelled to Moore River caravan park for the week. Easy set up and we had a very relaxing time spent in comfort.
Thanks Brent & Kim, we had a great holiday.

Such a luxury - the camper was as comfortable as sleeping in our beds at home. It was immaculate and Kim and Brent could not have been more gracious and patient with us - we were quite inexperienced and they made things so easy! Will definitely be booking again. Thank you!

From start to finish Brent and Kim were amazing, no question was too much trouble. A very open and honest couple to deal with and an absolute pleasure dealing with them. This made our experience so much more relaxing knowing that we had a direct line of contact if we had any issues. The van was perfect for what we needed it for, will definitely be using this van again,

My husband Brent & I love caravanning & kayaking. When our 4 boys were younger we travelled around Australia for 6 months which was an unforgettable experience! We are hiring out our Expanda and Journey so that other families can enjoy the wonderful lifestyle that caravanning brings without breaking the budget.
