Frequently Asked Questions
Is there a minimum age to rent from you?
We try to work with clients who are 25 years and above due to our insurance coverage restrictions. But, depending on your situation, whenever we can, we always try to be accommodating.
In case you are younger than twenty-five, try checking in with your insurance provider to find out whether you would be insured for rental vehicles, particularly for pick-up trucks, after which you can contact us.
Are your roof top tents family friendly?
Absolutely! Please note that using our rooftop camping vehicles you will need to climb up a small ladder. If this sounds like an issue, we offer an extra camping tent with every package which you could put up on the ground. This can be much more comfortable for you as well as your young children.
How many individuals can your camper vehicles accommodate?
The roof top tent camping vehicles sleep 3 individuals maximum, although in case there are more in your party, we do have an extra tent, too. With this, we are able to fit as much as five people. Each of our trucks has 5 seatbelts.
Can you provide surfboards?
Certainly, we provide both surfboards & boogie boards as well as fins upon request for a small fee. Just let us know in advance if you would like to rent one, so we can add it to your booking and have it ready for you at departure.
Can we receive a guidebook or perhaps a map with the best places to visit on Kauai?
Yes, each vehicle has a Kauai guidebook which details maps and information on the best places to see and camp out on Kauai.
Kauai Camping Guide & Camping Permits FAQ
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 designated camping sites. This is the usual practice here on Kauai. We’ll supply you with a list of the best locations to visit and to camp in. Please be aware that driving on the beaches is not permitted on Kauai.
Is “wild camping” permitted or are we only able to visit designated camping sites? If so, how much is the cost?
No, wild camping is not permitted on the island of Kauai. You can only go camping in designated locations with a valid camping permit. The fee is roughly $3 per night in most Kauai county campgrounds, though private camp sites may be a little more. The good thing about these campgrounds is that you will have total access to facilities, like showers, washrooms & picnic dining tables. Please be aware that if you decide to go camping on the county camp sites, you are only allowed to use the ground tent.

Do we need to get Kauai camping permits before our arrival in Kauai?
It is definitely a better to obtain your Kauai camping license before your trip. For the majority of private camping grounds, which we always recommend first, you can secure your permits on the internet and also on-the-spot in the designated office.
If you opt to stay at a county campground and set up a ground tent, you may obtain permits by going to the “County of Kauai Camping Information” webpage.
Non-residents have to pay 3 dollars per night beforehand. Payment methods accepted with this particular application are money orders and cashier’s checks. Nevertheless, it’s not necessary to book your camping permits before your planned arrival. You may also obtain them at the different permit offices in Kauai, which is usually easier.
What is the processing time for obtaining camping permits?
Whether you decide to camp at a state or private campsite, both online and in person reservations are possible. If you decide to go to a county campsite, mail-in applications are easy to submit, but it can take quite a while to get your permits. You might receive your permits upon arrival to Kauai at the various permit offices on Kauai; in-person you will get them right away.

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!
