***Brand new for Summer 2022***
Our "new" pride and joy is a beautifully restored vintage 4x4 Misubishi Delica L300, lovingly known as Ellie.
Ellie is completely unique. Her previous owner was a master welder from South Wales who dedicated years to restoring and refurbishing her bodywork, before he kindly passed her onto us and our very good friend, Crazy Jacub.
Jacub normally spends his time constructing custom carpentry for luxury cottages in the Cotswolds, but we sweet talked him into completely refitting Ellie's interior, and his joinery skills and creativity have been put to great use to create a truly one of a kind vintage Delica (Andrew, Jacub, we love you guys!)
Ellie's has a Long Wheel Base (LWB) which mean she's got loads of space, and her custom bed/seating can be repositioned to create a spacious front kitchen or rear lounge area depending on which view you prefer. You can choose to sleep downstairs in her double rock and roller bed in the evening, or move up top into her spacious roof top tent, which can comfortably sleep an extra 3 people (perfect for meeting up with friends at festivals)
She has a whopping 38 litre water tank and large solar cells on the roof so can go off grid for weeks at a time - and when we say off grid, we really do mean off grid. With raised suspension, off road tires and full 4x4 capability, Ellie's equally at home on a beach in Cornwall as she half way up the side of a snow covered mountain in Wales (did we mention she has an overnight heater plumbed into her fuel tank?).
Ellie is the perfect festival camper and wilderness wanderer. She comes with everything you need for an amazing adventure, including custom built bike racks (available free of charge), gas stove, sink, drinks/cocktail cabinet, WiFi transmitter/Chrome Cast, TV (with HDMI connection point), Dometic fridge freezer, 240V inverter, huge amounts of custom built storage space and a side awning for those lazy summer days.
Ellie turns heads and starts conversations wherever you go, and she's yours to enjoy, brand new for UK holidays this Summer 2022.
Please note that Ellie doesn't have rear seatbelts, so isn't suitable for families. We're working on this, and will let you know if anything changes, but for now Ellie's only suitable for couples, singles, or adults comfortable sitting in the back without a belt.
Located in the front area above the driving cab and accessible with a ladder. Very comfortable, this bed also allows for a bigger living space.
This refers to the back seats which unfold into a bed. Allows for a bigger living space, while adding two extra berths in a smaller vehicle.

I’m speechless. This is the second time we rented a campervan. Thanks to the owner the whole experience of getting it booked was a breeze. Unfortunately due to recent hurricane, our campsite reservation was rescheduled. Speaking to the owner of the campervan, with no issues and full understanding on his side, we managed to reschedule with no extra costs. Thank you so much for this.
First thing that comes to mind is the attention we were getting from people all over the place. Petrol stations, motorways, campsites. By the end of the trip I felt so proud driving this beauty that I genuinely wished it was mine. Well, luckily for you, it’s up for rental.
Initially I was quite sceptic when I heard there is a tent on the roof. I really had no idea how this will work, but honestly, it’s so easy even our son was able to put it on without much guidance. Additionally there is extension available for anyone wishing for more privacy. We didn’t use it this time as we wanted to visit as many places as possible with as little of ‘downtime’.
The inside of the campervan takes me back to some steam-punk stories. Well, maybe not the design itself but the colours. It feels really warm and comfortable. There is plenty usable storage and for longer trips there are decently sized storage compartments at the back. Without any additional stops for food we managed 3 days on the road... all the car needed was diesel.
Needless to say, recent nights have been quite cold. Don’t worry about this, this girl has a diesel heater. Clearly the owner is a geek as you can switch it on and off with a remote attached to the car keys. Also the car leisure batter will recharge itself thanks to roof mounted solar panel.
Speaking about funky stuff. The LED lights inside the campervan are dimmable, so you can easily adjust it to whatever brightness you like. The setting is saved, so the next time you switch them on, it is as you left it.
Another cool thing is the TV. I wish to say more but as a family we had so much fun that we haven’t even used it. Nevertheless, it is a cool thing to have for anyone who wishes to use it during longer rentals.
This is not the end of it. I’m really bad with directions so I had to use my google maps. To my surprise I ran out of my internet allowance but the onboard WI-FI internet was there for the rescue. Yes, there is a built in Wi-Fi internet in the car. Speak to the owner for details. How amazing is that?!
There is so much that can be said and even after all this I feel like I only scratched the surface. No words can do a justice here. I heartfully recommend this campervan.
Those reviews have been left on the owner's other listings. They can give you more information on Andrew.
We met with Andrew who gave us a thorough induction to our Bongo and then proceeded to travel to the Algarve, Portugal through France and Spain. The Bongo behaved very well as we drove through ice, fog, freezing fog and bright sunshine. During the trip we spoke with Andrew several times about some small queries and he was always helpful.
Everything was great, the only reason for a 3 star on the vehicle condition was the fact that there was some form of electrical issue that made the tail lights malfunction, when I changed the fuses for the dashboard and tail lights (the same 15A fuse does both) the electrics instantly fried it. This unfortunately lead to me driving the van for a fair distance in a condition that was not road worthy with no way to fix this myself.
Aside from that the host was great, the van was nice and did everything we asked of it (aside from have dashboard illumination and tail lights)
The van drives well and was lovely (considering I hate automatics) it's a little fuel thirsty but I'm convinced that's the automatic gear box.
Good little van and fingers crossed the electrical fault gets fixed as I would love to rent it again.
From start to finish, Andrew was absolutely amazing. We were warmly greeted and informed of everything we would need to know about the van for our trip. Andrew was available at all times if we had any questions or concerns. The Bongo really made our trip special. My 3 and 5 year old girls kissed her goodbye when we had to leave her. Could not have asked for a better experience.

Hey there - we're Jana and Andrew. Proud parents, growers of inadequate vegetables, and Japanese camper van lovers.
Our passion (for camper vans at least) all began on Andrew's 40th birthday, where we invested in our lovely little Mazda Bongo, who we drove into the Spanish Dessert for a Festival in the middle of nowhere. And so began our #VanLife
We now have three gorgeous Japanese camper van conversions, Deli, Ellie and Bongo (see below). Each has their own unique personality and eccentricities, and we enjoy nothing more than sharing them with our amazing guests so that they too can enjoy the adventures and freedom that come with going off grid.
We do our best to make each rental special, and appreciate that it's often our guest's first time in a camper van, so perform a comprehensive (some might say too comprehensive!) handover prior to every hire to ease any uncertainty.
Life is an open road - we're here to help you enjoy the journey! :)
