Here are Some Frequently Asked Questions
What’s the minimum age for renting from you?
We would rather like to work with clients who are actually twenty-five years and older because of our insurance coverage restrictions. But, depending on your situation, whenever we can, we always try to be flexible.
If you are below twenty-five, consider checking in with your insurance provider to see if you would be covered for rental vehicles, particularly for pick-up trucks, after which you can call us.
Are your roof top tent camper trucks family friendly?
Of course! Please note that with our rooftop camping vehicles you will need to climb a small ladder. If this sounds like a concern, we provide an extra camping tent with every package which you may set up on the ground. This may be much more comfortable for you and also your kids.
What is the maximum capacity of your vehicles?
We are able to accommodate three people maximum, though if there are more within your group, we do provide an extra camping tent, too. With this, we are able to allow for up to 5 individuals. Each of our vehicles has 5 seatbelts.
What about surfboards?
Yes, our company offers surfboards & boogie boards and fins on request for a fee. Simply tell us up-front 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 guidebook or even a map with the greatest beaches & hiking trails to explore on Kauai?
Yes, each vehicle has a Kauai guidebook which details maps and information on the best spots to visit and camp out on Kauai.
Kauai Camping Guide & Information About Camping Permits
Am I able to go to any beach front for camping?
You may drive up to any beach, but you should only set up your camp in designated camping sites. Here on Kauai, this is the standard procedure. We will supply you with a list of the best places to check out and to camp in. Please be aware that driving a vehicle on the beaches is not allowed on Kauai.
Is “wild camping” permitted or are we just able to go to official camping sites? If so, how much is the charge?
No, wild camping is not permitted in Kauai. You can only camp in specified locations with secured camping permits. The charge is approximately $3 per night in many Kauai county parks, though private camp sites could be a little more. One particular advantage of these campsites is that you will have complete access to facilities, like bathrooms, showers and picnic kitchen tables. Please be aware that if you decide to camp on the county campgrounds, you are only permitted to use the ground tent.

Before our arrival in Kauai, do we need to get a Kauai camping permit?
It is a better to get your Kauai camping license prior to your journey. For most private camping grounds, which we always recommend first, you can get your licenses online and also in person 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” web page.
In advance, the fees are $3 per night for nonresidents of Hawaii. Accepted payment methods with this application are bank checks and also money orders. But it is not absolutely necessary to reserve your camping permits prior to your arrival. You may also obtain them at the various permit offices in Kauai, which is typically easier.
What is the processing time for obtaining camping permits?
If you choose to go to a state or private camping ground, both online and in person reservations are possible. Please note that if you decide to camp at a county camping ground, mail-in applications are easy to submit, but it can take quite some time to obtain your permits. You might get your permits upon arrival to Kauai at the designated permit offices on Kauai; in-person you will get them 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!
