Commonly Asked Questions
Are there any age restrictions to rent from you?
We would rather like to work with clients who are twenty-five years and older due to our insurance coverage restrictions. On the other hand, based on your needs, whenever we can, we try to be accommodating.
If you are below twenty-five, try contacting your insurance provider to find out if you would be insured for rental vehicles, particularly for pick-up trucks, after which you can contact us.
Are your roof top tents kids friendly?
Indeed! Please note that with our rooftop camping vehicles you will need to climb one small ladder. If this sounds like a concern, we also provide an extra tent with every package which you could set up on the ground. This may be more suitable for both you and your young ones.
How many people can your camping vehicles accommodate?
We could fit 3 people maximum, though in case there are more within your party, we do offer an extra tent, as well. With this, we can easily accommodate about five people. All of our vehicles have 5 seatbelts.
Are you offering surfboards?
Yes, we offer both surfboards & boogie boards and also fins upon request for a small fee. Just let us know beforehand if you want to rent one, so we can add it to your booking and have it ready for you at departure.
Do we get a guide book or perhaps a map with the best beaches & hiking trails to visit on Kauai?
Yes, each vehicle has a Kauai guidebook which details maps and information on the best spots to check out & go camping on Kauai.
Top Locations For Camping Outdoors On Kauai & Information Regarding Camping Permits
Can I visit any beach front for camping?
You may go to any beach, but you should only put up your camp in official camping sites. This is the usual practice here on Kauai. We will give you a list of the best places to explore and to go camping. Please be aware that driving a vehicle on the beaches isn’t permitted on Kauai.
Are we permitted to camp in the wild or are we only able to go to designated camping grounds? If so, how much will it cost?
No, wild camping is not permitted on the island of Kauai. You may only go camping in specific areas with secured camping permits. The charge is approximately $3 per night stay in the majority of Kauai county campgrounds, though private camp sites could be a bit more. One particular advantage of these camping grounds is that you will have full access to facilities, like showers, restrooms and picnic kitchen tables. Please keep in mind that if you opt to go camping on the county camp sites, you are only allowed to set up the ground tent.

Do we have to get Kauai camping permits before our arrival in Kauai?
It is definitely a better to organize your Kauai camping permits prior to your journey. For the majority of private camping grounds, which we always recommend first, you may get your licenses on the internet and also in person in the designated office.
If you choose to stay at a county campground and set up a ground tent, you may ask for permits by visiting the “County of Kauai Camping Information” page.
Non-residents must pay three dollars per night in advance. Payment methods accepted with this application are money orders & cashier’s checks. But you don’t have to book your camping licenses before your planned arrival. You may also obtain them at the various permit offices in Kauai, which is usually easier.
How much time does it take to obtain the camping permits?
If you decide to go to a state or private campground, both online and in person reservations are possible. If you choose to camp at a county campground, mail-in applications are easy to submit, but it might take quite some time to get your permits. Permits can be bought at the permit offices on Kauai upon arrival; in-person permits are given immediately.

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!
