About this listing

Venus is a fantastic little road tripper. She loves going to the beach, lakes and rivers; she's a regular little water baby. She's pretty enthusiastic about mountains too and she isn't too bad getting up them steep hills. She's got a turbo diesel engine hidden under her bonnet which goes really well on our roads so you won't be 'that' slow campervan (errm, except perhaps on those twisty steep Coromandel roads!). She comes equipped with either double bed (between a queen and a king size at 160cm across) or two singles, you choose and we'll get the right bedding in Venus for you. During the day you can convert the bed back into a seating area with a table, or keep the bed made up so you can nap at short notice! There's a table you can put up outside as well. We love eating and cooking so she's got quite a bit of good kitchen gear stashed away in her kitchen drawer and cupboards. We keep glasses and a kettle in two of the overhead lockers which leaves plenty of room for your things in the other two lockers. There is also underbed storage which you can use. We keep a sun umbrella, chairs and a four person table under them that you are welcome to use. There is a small personal gear locker that fits two soft cabin bag size bags. When she's hooked up to mains power the heater and the microwave work, as do the 4 power points. There's an awning with quick set up and take down when you are on the move every day. Why did we call her Transit of Venus? It's a bit of a play on words. She's a Ford Transit; Venus is the Roman goddess whose functions encompassed love, beauty, fertility, prosperity and desire (doesn't all that sound good for a holiday in a campervan?). A real transit of Venus across the Sun takes place when the planet Venus passes directly between the Sun and a superior planet, becoming visible against (and hence obscuring a small portion of) the solar disk. The last one was in 2012 and the next one is due in 2117.

House rules

No smoking, no pets. We'd prefer if you didn't drive the Milford Road between Te Anau and Milford, take a day tour and save your energy to enjoy the day.
