Frequently Asked Questions
Is there an age requirement to rent from you?
We prefer to do business with clients who are 25 years and above due to our insurance coverage restrictions. Having said that, depending on your situation, whenever possible, we strive to be accommodating.
In case you are younger than 25 years, try contacting your insurer to see if you would be insured for rental vehicles, particularly for pick-up trucks, after which you can contact us.
Are your rooftop tents family friendly?
Indeed! Please keep in mind that using our rooftop camping vehicles you’ll have to climb a little ladder. If this is a concern, we also offer an additional tent with every package which you can set up on the ground. This could be more comfortable for you and your young children.
How many individuals can your camping trucks accommodate?
The camping trucks sleep three people at most, though if there are more within your party, we do provide an extra tent, too. With this, we can easily fit up to 5 people. Each of our vehicles has 5 seatbelts.
What about surfboards?
Yes, we offer surfboards and boogie boards as well as fins on request for a small fee. Just let us know in advance if you want to rent one, so that we can add it to your booking and have it ready for you at departure.
Can we get a guide or perhaps a map with the nicest hiking trails and beaches to visit on Kauai?
Sure, each vehicle has a Kauai guidebook which details maps and information on the best spots to see & go camping on Kauai.
Perfect Spots For Camping On Kauai & Camping Permits FAQ
Can I head to any beach front for camping?
You may go to any beach, however, you can only put up your camp in official camping sites. This is the usual practice here on Kauai. We’ll provide you with a list of the ideal locations to check out and also to camp in. Please be aware that driving a vehicle on the beaches isn’t permitted on Kauai.
Is “wild camping” permitted or can we only visit designated camping sites? If so, what is the cost?
No, wild camping is not permitted in Kauai. You should only camp in specific areas with a valid camping permit. The charge is about $3 per night stay in most Kauai county campgrounds, but private camping grounds could be a bit more. One particular advantage of these camping grounds is that you will have complete access to amenities, like bathrooms, showers & picnic dining tables. Please be aware that if you decide to camp on the county camp sites, you are only allowed to set up the ground tent.

Prior to our arrival in Kauai, do we need to get a Kauai camping permit?
It’s a better to obtain your Kauai camping license before your trip. For most private campsites, which we always recommend first, you can get your licenses online and also on-the-spot in the respective office.
If you choose to camp at a county campground and set up a ground tent, you may ask for permits by visiting the “County of Kauai Camping Information” webpage.
Up-front, the charges are $3 per night for nonresidents of Hawaii. Payment methods accepted with this application are cashier’s checks and money orders. However, it’s not absolutely necessary to book your camping licenses before your planned arrival. You could also obtain them at the different permit offices on the island, which is typically easier.
What is the processing time for getting camping permits?
If you decide to stay at a state or private camping ground, both online and in person reservations are possible. Please note that if you choose to stay at a county campsite, mail-in applications are easy to submit, however it can take quite some time to obtain your permits. Permits can be obtained at the permit offices on Kauai upon arrival; in-person permits are given on-the-spot.

Our Happy Clients!
Exploring Kauai with a rooftop camper is a fun and unique way to explore this beautiful island! Our family of 4 spent 12 fabulous days exploring and camping. The extra tent with the rooftop provided plenty of space for us…we had an amazing time! All communication with Jonathan and Jamie was smooth and easy. They are lovely people who genuinely want to provide a great experience.
Jamie and Jonathan were excellent hosts! Even though they were on vacation, Jonathan made all accommodations very easy and helped us with every step. Note: if you are under 25, make sure to let them know to make sure you are covered by insurance! Jonathan helped us work it out and we had a great time

Jamie and Jonathan are by far the very best experience with Airbnb we have ever had. Truly generous human beings with big hearts. They provided wonderful suggestions, amenities, and a wonderful 5 star experience. We will certainly rent again. For our first experience in Hawaii, they made sure it was second to none. If you’re coming to Hawaii to truly experience nature and looking for a ‘no nonsense’ and easy process to explore the island the way it was meant to be, you could not attain better hosts.
We had such an amazing trip with Jamie’s camper! Jamie and Jonathan were both so kind and took their time to explain to us the ins and out of our camper. Communication was easy and the beaches they recommend we visit were like paradise! Will rent again from them when we come back for sure!
The BEST way to experience the beautiful garden island! Not only a great service–transportation doubling as your lodging–but wonderful and warm hosts. Jonathan and Jamie were so kind and helpful. An absolutely wonderful trip to Kauai–thank you both!
