Everything about hiring from Fernando was fantastic! He explained everything clearly and was always available if we had any questions too. He gave us some wild camp suggestion too. 
The van worked perfectly off grid for a week and it took us all around Cornwall. The 'cheat sheet' of notes were super helpful too. Not a single bad thing to say about it all. Thank you!

We had the most brilliant two weeks in Fernando's van!

Right from the start he was super helpful and really quick with communication, so everything was very stressfree. (We arrived by train and he even collected us from the local train station which was so appreciated.) The rundown he gave us of all of the things in the van was really comprehensive so there were no issues at all during our hire because we knew how to deal with everything - from the shower to the porta potty to the trick for opening the door in the rain. The van is SO well kitted out! We literally could not have needed anything else to make our trip perfect - I think the firepit and the outdoor shower might have been our favourites, but the excellent range of cooking stuff and crockery was really useful too. The bed is every bit as comfy as he says it is - best two weeks of sleep I have had in ages

It was pleasingly easy to drive the van even in the tiny Cornish roads, it handles really well. The three solar panels on the roof do an aamzing job of charging the electrics - in two weeks we only used an electrical hookup twice and we charged phones and power banks and used the lights/fridge/waterpump regularly.

I would HIGHLY recommend renting his van for your next adventure :)

We had a great trip with Fernando's campervan visiting South Cornwall. 'Dharma' is a great van with everything we needed onboard. Despite the large dimensions, it is very easy to drive! The solar power was plenty for our trip (we had 2 sunny and 3 cloudy days) and we didnt need to hook up to electricity. It gave us the flexibility to find a space to sleep even in fully booked campsites! The bed is comfortable, the gas stove great for cooking and lots of storage space. The highlight was the outdoors solar shower, such a liberating feature! We found sometimes going to a place near the sea to find parking was a bit tricky because of the overall height at 2.8m and some carparks have 2.1-2.3m allowance. So always good to check the height restrictions beforehand! It didnt affect though our trip. Fernando and Sarah both great, friendly and easygoing people to communicate with which made our experience even better. They gave us tips for local points and it was great meeting them! We will definitely return in the future for another Dharma trip!

Brilliant, excellent communication, easy to find pick up location, Nando explained the van really well. We absolutely loved the van, it always soooo comfortable, the bed was dreamy! The best thing......the SHOWER! It had lovely hot water and great water pressure, I've never showered al fresco before and it was brilliant!  Everyone else at the festival was so jealous! The van had everything you could want, we will deffo be hiring it again. Thanks for everything and for making our weekend one to remember xxx

This whole process of renting the van was super easy. Fernando and Sarah are such a lovely couple and honestly could not have made my trip better. When I picked up the van they were thorough with the run through of all the information needed and how to use things in the van. They also left such a nice basket of Cornish treats for me. They really have thought of everything down to the small details of van life which makes for a very pleasant stay in their home on wheels. They are also always happy to answer any questions when you're on the road and are really helpful. The van is easy to drive, very comfortable, and looks fantastic! Would definitely recommend a trip :)

It was so nice to have such a nice person as our first renter. Sarah was very easy going and it was a plasure to meet her. The van was looked after very well and the van was brought back clean and tidy. There was no issues at all and she always responded very quickly to our messages. It was great to know that Sarah had a great holiday down here in  Cornwall.
