Natasha and Graham have the introductory lesson down pat, and are very pleasant, thorough and accommodating! They weren't wrong when they said we'd love our first experience with van life! We were so busy enjoying things, we forgot to take pictures! 🤦‍♂️ We look forward to trying it again, tho - hopefully, with a little less rain, next time! LoL

We had the most fab 6 days in Ruby. We have rented lots of vans in different places around the world, and owned our own in New Zealand, and this was by far the comfiest, most well stocked van we’ve ever been in. She drives perfectly, looks fab and is light and bright with great visibility with all the big windows. She had absolutely everything you could possibly need in there. All the extras were really well thought out (eg. Dressing gowns and sliders for showers!, coffee and tea, olive oil and salt and pepper for cooking!). We adored her. She has so much character and is absolutely perfect for cruising round the island in.
Graham and Natasha were amazing hosts: gave us a really comprehensive tour of the van before we left so we knew how she worked, and we’re great communicators before the trip answering any questions we had. We didn’t have any problems during the trip but knew they’d be available if we needed them. They gave us some great recommendations before we left too.

Hi, Molly. We are so grateful you chose to book with us, being our first year established as Vans Go West, we cannot thank you enough for your support & taking the time to leave this message here. Ruby enjoyed your company as well & we couldn't have asked for better guests. Please do come back again! Anytime.

A must for anyone looking to explore Vancouver Island in a camper van! Could not emphasize enough what a great experience this was and how smooth and comprehensive the facilitation was all round! The van had everything in it that you would need for an amazing outdoor/overnight experience. Just show up with your food and clothes and away you go. Thank you to Graham and Natasha for having such a top notch business and helping us make the most out of our island adventure!

Great campervan! We spent a wonderful week traveling around vancouver island. Natasha and Graham were incredible hosts, we made some last minute changes on the booking and they where totally fine with it. They were also available during our whole trip and helped us out to travel around the island.

Wow, where do I start. The hosts were not what I expected. They were honest, funny and relaxing to deal with. They made the transfer experience very pleasant. Even making sure that you were comfortable before leaving. They packed our trip with all the camping necessities and unexpected extras which I would never have thought of. All came in handy for a couple flying in from overseas with absolutely no camping gear whatsoever. Can't thank them enough and I would recommend them to everyone. Van was a lot of fun. And I want one...

We loved our trip in the Westy! It was the very best way to see Vancouver Island. I especially appreciated having a full setup for cooking and turning on the heat when it got a bit chilly at night. We found some beautiful places to park and now I will be counting down until we can come back. Our hosts were also fantastic and provided some wonderful recommendations.

We spent beautiful days with Blondie around Vancouver Island! We are a family of 4 people and we had enough space for everybody. We were very comfortable... blondie was eqiupped with everything we needed and even more, just like a real cute little home... the vehicle, even though older, is mantained in excellent conditions and didn't cause any problems at all throughout the trip. Natasha and Graham are really friendly and happy to give helpful advice and local tips to get around.

So much fun! For sure has some character but that’s the point! Graham and Natasha were very helpful and great hosts. Lots of thoughtful touches!

We had an awesome time with this rental, it's an old school van that is well preserved and it is quite nice to actually drive a manual car instead of an automatic when you're used to it as us European are.

We had a fab time driving this beastie! Torfino road closed due to wildfires so we went up to Campbell river, Gold river and Tahsis.

If you’re thinking about renting this van, DO IT! Natasha and Graham were gracious hosts and made sure we knew the ins and outs of this vehicle to ensure a smooth trip. The van was fully stocked with items not even listed on their site (chargers, bear spray, coffee and tea, bathrobes, light snacks, and so much more) which all came in handy. They gave us great recommendations and had a great response rate. The van is a machine, ran smoothly, and you can tell they take great care of it. I will be recommending renting this van from them to all of my friends and family. Best experience ever!

Blondie is such an amazing van! She took excellent care of me and was a dream to drive. I didn’t want to give her back! Everything you need or want is included and the bed was incredibly comfortable to sleep on!
