About Cornelius VANderbilt

Aloha! We are Moku and Keala, a local husband and wife team here in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii. We are born and raised in Hawaii and have lived in Kona on and off for the past 25 years. We got Cornelius with the intention of exploring the island and camping more often but our three businesses keep us busy so it's hard to get away. That's where YOU come in! We get to live vicariously through YOUR adventures! Hawaii Island, also known as the "Big Island," is overflowing with natural beauty including black, green, and white sand beaches, snow capped mountains, volcanoes, waterfalls, and so much more.

This strong and large skoolie van follows with its interior design direction the owner’s jiu Jitsu academy: it consists of a large empty space with a comfortable mattress. There are no knick knacks, no frills. There is a stool with cutlery and plates, but no stove. Japanese minimalism. We liked it.

The hosts were so friendly and helpful! Cornelius is a real beast of a van! Highly recommended, with powerful AC, huge doors, a great battery, and sooooo much room. A place to feel like home on the road :)

We had an amazing adventure with Cornelius exploring the beautiful Big Island! Thoughtful, knowledgeable, local hosts and a comfortable spacious ride. Tall ceilings, great sound system, back up camera, fun bench seats and bus driver door. Looking forward to visiting again!
