Below are Some Frequently Asked Questions
Is there an age requirement to rent from you?
We prefer to do business with clients who are twenty-five years and above because of our insurance policy restrictions. Having said that, depending on your situation, whenever possible, we always strive to be accommodating.
In case you are younger than twenty-five, try checking with your insurance company 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?
Absolutely! Please keep in mind that using our rooftop camping vehicles you would need to climb one small ladder. If this sounds like an issue, we offer an additional camping tent with each of our packages which you could put up on the ground. This can be more suitable for both you as well as your children.
How many people can your camper trucks fit?
We are able to accommodate three people at most, although if there are more in your group, we do have an extra tent, too. With this, we are able to fit up to five people. Each of our vehicles has 5 seatbelts.
What about surfboards?
Certainly, our company offers both surfboards and boogie boards and also fins on request for a small fee. Simply tell us up-front if you would like to rent one, so that we can add it to your reservation and have it ready for you at departure.
Can we receive a guidebook or a map with the best locations to check out on Kauai?
Yes, each vehicle has a Kauai guidebook which details maps and information on the best locations to visit & camp out on Kauai.
Finest Spots For Camping Out On Kauai & Camping Permits FAQ
Can I go to any beach front to camp?
You can go to any beach, nevertheless, you should only put up your camp in official camping sites. Here on Kauai, this is the usual procedure. We’ll give you a list of the best places to explore and to go camping. Please be aware that driving a vehicle on the beaches is not permitted on Kauai.
Are we permitted to camp in the wild or are we just able to go to designated camping sites? If so, how much does it cost?
No, wild camping is not permitted in Kauai. You should only camp in specified locations with secured camping permits. The charge is roughly $3 per night stay in many Kauai county parks, though private campsites could be a little more. The good thing about these camping grounds is that you will have total access to facilities, like restrooms, showers and picnic tables. Please keep in mind that if you opt to go camping on the county camp sites, you are only allowed to use the ground tent.

Before our arrival in Kauai, do we have to get a Kauai camping permit?
It is a good idea to get your Kauai camping permits before your arrival. For the majority of private campsites, which we always recommend first, you may get your licenses online and also in person in the respective office.
If you decide to stay at a county campsite and use a ground tent, you may ask for permits by visiting the “County of Kauai Camping Information” web page.
In advance, the fees are $3 per night for non-residents of Hawaii. Payment methods accepted with this application are money orders & cashier’s checks. But it’s not necessary to book your camping licenses before your planned arrival. You could also obtain them at the designated permit offices on the island, which is typically easier.
How much time does it take to get the camping permits?
Whether you choose to go to a state or private camping ground, both online and in person reservations are possible. If you choose to stay at a county campsite, mail-in applications are easy to submit, however it might take quite some time to receive your permits. You might receive your permits upon arrival to Kauai at the designated permit offices on Kauai; in-person you will receive 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!
