Venessa and Aitor were easy to reach and made themselves available in case any situation came up with the vehicle.
It was a joy to ride all the way to Tofino back and forth, would recommend!

Great week in a great location. We always wanted to try a Westfalia and this gave us that opportunity at a price we could afford.
Vanessa was great, good communication, very friendly.

So much fun! Easy to drive and easy to use, all the facilities worked great. Super comfy bed too! Would highly recommend this for a couple for a camping trip on the island. We used it as our transport and accommodation for a friends wedding in Port Renfrew and it was great! Venessa communicated well and we met her husband who was a really great guy, he dropped off the westy and showed us how everything works. Thanks for an awesome experience!

I rented the VW Westfalia for a 1 week road trip around Vancouver Island and had such a fantastic time. The van was super comfortable and had everything I needed. It was clean, well equipped, and Vanessa and her husband were really lovely throughout the entire booking and rental process even at such short notice (I picked it up after only 2 days of enquiring!). The van is old, so there are a couple of quirks to it, but overall it ran really well. I rented the van by myself, and never once was worried about anything ever going wrong. I would highly recommend renting this beautiful van!!

We went across Vancouver Island for five days. The Westy is reliable, although quite gas-demanding. If you're over 1,90 m tall, you need to sleep in the top section of the van - that might be cold in spring and early summer since there is only canvas around you - the lower section is not so comfy for big people since it is too short to lay down outstretched.
The fridge was not working. Other people also wrote that. So I wouldn't count on a working fridge. The owner provided a chilly bin. You have to buy a lot of Ice and something to contain it.
Altogether you have to make a few compromises but if you are in backpacker-mood, it takes you where you want to go nicely. The owners are quite caring and the communication is perfect. Worth an adventure!

We spent 4 days driving up the West Coast of the island and staying at camp grounds. The Westy had everything you need for camping out at the beach, super cozy inside and fun to drive!
