Frequently Asked Questions
Are there any age restrictions to rent from you?
We would rather like to work with customers who are actually twenty-five years and older due to our insurance policy restrictions. But, based upon your circumstances, whenever possible, we always strive to be accommodating.
If you are younger than 25 years, try contacting your insurance provider to see if you would be insured for rental vehicles, particularly for pick-up trucks, after which you can call us.
Are your rooftop tents kids friendly?
Certainly! Please note that using our rooftop camping vehicles you’ll have to climb up a little ladder. If this is a concern, we offer an extra tent with each package which you could set up on the ground. This may be more suitable for both you as well as your children.
How many individuals can your camping trucks fit?
Our roof top tent camping vehicles sleep 3 individuals maximum, although if there are more within your group, we do have an additional tent, too. With this, we can easily accommodate as much as 5 individuals. Each of our vehicles has 5 seatbelts.
Are you offering surfboards?
Absolutely yes, our company offers surfboards and boogie boards and also fins upon request for a small fee. Just tell us beforehand if you want to rent one, so that we can add it to your reservation and have it ready for you at departure.
Do we get a guide or even a map with the nicest beaches and hiking trails to visit on Kauai?
Certainly, each vehicle has a Kauai guidebook which details maps and information on the best spots to check out and go camping on Kauai.
Kauai Camping Guide & Details About Camping Permits
Am I able to head to any beach for camping?
You could drive up to any beach, but you should only set up your camp in official camping grounds. This is the standard practice here on Kauai. We will give you a list of the best places to visit and also to camp in. Please remember that driving a vehicle on the beaches is not permitted on Kauai.
Is “wild camping” allowed or are we just able to visit designated camping grounds? If so, how much is the charge?
No, wild camping is not allowed on the island of Kauai. You should only go camping in specific locations with secured camping permits. The charge is about $3 per night in most Kauai county parks, but private campsites could be a bit more. One advantage of these campsites is that you have total access to facilities, such as washrooms, showers and picnic dining tables. Please note that if you choose to camp on the county campsites, you are only allowed to use the ground tent.

Prior to our arrival in Kauai, do we need to get a Kauai camping permit?
It is a better to obtain your Kauai camping permits prior to your arrival. For most private campsites, which we always recommend first, you can get your permits on the internet and also on-the-spot in the respective office.
If you choose to camp at a county campsite and set up a ground tent, you can ask for permits by going to the “County of Kauai Camping Information” webpage.
Non-residents need to pay three dollars per night beforehand. Accepted payment methods with this application are money orders & cashier’s checks. However, it isn’t absolutely necessary to book your camping licenses prior to your arrival. You could also obtain them at the different permit offices on the island, which is typically easier.
How long will it take to obtain the camping permits?
If you decide to go to a state or private campsite, both online and in person reservations are possible. If you choose to go to a county campground, mail-in applications are easy to submit, however it can take quite a while to obtain your permits. You may choose to obtain your permits upon arrival to Kauai at the various permit offices on Kauai; in-person you will get them 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!
