Rent a Caravan


About us

Avon City Caravans was launched in 2005 and has been going strong ever since. We have recently re-branded to for our website and social media. We are located in Christchurch 20 minutes from the city centre, towards Rolleston.


All our caravans are styled with new curtains, carpets, paint, seat covers, and artwork. There is always something to clean, fix, arrange and enhance. We are dedicated to providing friendly, efficient service, with integrity and respect. We specialise in long-term living but we will always offer short term rentals for local events, holidays and emergency accommodation.

The woman behind
the scenes

My name is Lizi Reese and I’m the owner and operator of Rent a Caravan. I started collecting, renovating, and renting out cool old caravans early in the new millennium. I have a passion for old 60’s 70’s and 80’s caravans.  I’ve always loved them, they remind me of my childhood.


I am in my 60s now and I've downsized my fleet of caravans. My goal is to have a smaller boutique style operation specialising in providing comfy accommodation for long term renters.
